LCS EU Pros calling their All-Star team
Posted 2013-04-10 Mac
Last weekend the LCS week 8 took place and luckily every team had to play there. A good chance to ask everyone, which players he would want to see flying to China and trying to get the third world championship spot for Europe. A pictures paints a thousand words, so check out what the Pros had to say below!
Also we would like to remind you of the ongoing all star vote. You can vote for your favourite players and give them all the support for the LCS All Stars. You can cast your vote over on the All Star voting page, and remember you can vote once each day so show your support for your favourite players!
Those are the current votes by the community. As you can see: The community and the Pros do have different opinions.
The Jungle vote seems clear to everyone. When Dignitas' KiWikid was asked in his reddit AMA two days ago: "Which player do you fear most in toplane?", his answer was "Diamondprox".
For the toplane the community seems to like the aggressive Wickd we have seen in the first weeks of LCS, showing a lot of Renekton and Zed plays. But atm he isn't in shape, what even Wickd himself mentioned in a long facebook post a few days ago.
Alex Ich or xPeke - that's the biggest question for Europe. Where Alex seems to be more comfortable on champs like Kha'Zix at the moment, xPeke shows an incredible variabilty in his champs, switching from Bruisers to the good old AP Mids like Ahri from game to game and surprise everyone (not just with his backdoors).
AD is a close race at the moment, where Genja overtook Yellowpete two days ago - but even Pete says, that Genja would be the better choice.
Last but not least, the "Thresh Prince of Bel-Air" Edward himself, will go to the All-Stars match for sure. The community and the Pros are thinking the same and we all wanna see some Asians getting hooked!
As you just saw, I managed to get statements from seven different teams and one Riot employee. First of all: Thanks to Daniel Klein, ocelote, Snoopeh, Froggen, Nyph, xPeke, sOAZ, TheTess, Deficio, CandyPanda, Cyanide, Babeta, YellOwStaR, Morden, Malunoo, Yellowpete, nRated, Alex Ich, HosaN, Shushei and Edward for doing this.
- From what the Pros said, there are four positions pretty clear:
- Toplane goes to sOAZ (Fnatic) with 13/21 votes.
- Jungler goes to Diamondprox (Gambit Gaming) with 16/21 votes.
- Midlane goes to xPeke (Fnatic) with 16/21 votes.
- Support goes to Edward (Gambit Gaming) with the record of 17/21 votes.
- AD goes to CandyPanda (SK-Gaming) or Genja (Gambit Gaming) with 7/21 votes each.
Sadly there was also one player, who didn't want to give me ten seconds of his life: Wickd. His teammate, Krepo, instead gave me the best answer I could imagine when I asked him: He needs some more time to think about it and I should maybe ask him later - I didn't because I knew that he would think about it and this is probably enough to know: Even the Pros wisely think about their top 5, because they know it's not about flying to China, it's about winning the third spot for Europe. Everyone was doing that before we filmed the statements, every player took one or two minutes to just think about the best possible lineup. Krepo posted his allstar lineup on Twitter one day later, so head over there to check it out!
