We're here in the final week of the EU LCS Summer Split, which also marks the end of the regular 2017 season. Summer has been full of surprises, and we've had an exciting 10 weeks of intense competition, with backdoors, shock upsets, game-changing baron steals and more. To celebrate the end of the season, it’s time to award the EULCS pros and coaches who nailed it this split with teamwork, strategy and performance.
Here’s a quick recap of the EULCS Summer awards and when you’ll find out who won:
EU All-LCS Team: August 18th
Coach: August 25th
Rookie: August 25th
MVP: September 2nd - 3rd during the EU LCS Summer Split Finals weekend
When does voting take place?
Voting takes place after the end of the regular season during week 10, the final week of Summer Split.
Same as last year, awards will be voted on by the EU LCS English broadcast team, regional language broadcast teams, 3rd party media, and pro teams. The full voting panel will be shared after the first award is presented on August 18th.
What defines MVP? Who counts as a Rookie?
For more information about the definition of awards and player eligibility, head over to our awards guide from the past split.
Anything changing in the awards process?
Everything is staying the same, except from one new rule which will be that EU LCS pros and coaches cannot vote for their own players or staff.
When will ballots and the full awards panel become available?
After each award is presented, panelist ballots will be released within 24 hours on Lolesports.
All panelists who agreed to participate but fail to submit votes (i.e. leave something blank) will be listed as “declined to vote.” Pros and coaches who vote incorrectly (i.e. vote for their own players) will be listed as “invalid” and those votes will not count toward the total for that category.
What about NA LCS Awards?
NA LCS awards have been announced here and they’ll be following a similar timeline for award announcement.
