Each spring the world is gripped in the unyielding grasp of ‘Awards Season’. The Academy Awards, the Grammys, the Baftas and the Golden Globes. Many awards ceremonies shine out as a beacon of brilliance in their fields. However, to an LCS pro, one award means more than all the others combined. More prestigious than an Oscar, more respected than a Nobel Prize... the LCS Spring Split Awards have arrived!
Weeks of tireless practice and on stage performance from our players culminated last week with G2 and Unicorns of Love taking the crowns in their respective groups. But does that mean they were the best teams? We asked a variety of players, journalists and some of the Riot casters to sign their ballots for who they thought were the best players in the European LCS.
After the deliberation ended, the votes were counted and the teams of the Spring Split were decided. Here are your winners, and this year's Most Valuable Team of the Spring Split!
IN FIRST PLACE:
Kiss ‘Vizicsacsi’ Tamás - Top, UoL - 95 points
Kim ‘Trick’ Gang-yun - Jungle, G2 - 80 points
Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković - Mid, G2 - 75 points
Jesper ‘Zven’ Svenningsen - ADC, G2 - 102 points
Lee ‘IgNar’ Dong-geun - Support, MSF - 74 points
‘Zven is capable of being impactful on any champion and without support. He understands laning, mid game and team fighting on literally everything he plays and he never ceases to be a threat. It’s these characteristics that made him the clear #1 ADC in Europe.”
Trevor ‘Quickshot’ Henry
IN SECOND PLACE:
Andrei ‘Odoamne’ Pascu - Top, H2K - 55 points
Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski - Jungle, H2K - 78 points
Fabian ‘Febiven’ Diepstraten - Mid, H2K - 61 points
Martin ‘ Rekkles’ Larsson - ADC, FNC - 44 points
Alfonso ‘mithy’ Aguirre Rodríguez - Support, G2 - 71 points
Andrew ‘Vedius’ Day
IN THIRD PLACE:
Ki ‘Expect’ Dae-han - Top, G2 - 28 points
Lee ‘KaKAO’ Byung-kwon - Jungle, MSF - 41 points
Fabian ‘Exileh’ Schubert - Mid, UoL - 43 points
Steven ‘Hans Sama’ Liv - ADC, MSF- 25 points
Zdravets ‘Hylissang’ Iliev Galabov - Support, UoL - 36 points
“The strongest performing jungler during the early to middle parts of the split was Kakao. He has had insane impact on Lee Sin especially but struggled to adapt to the post-IEM jungle pathing. Misfits rely on Kakao to force engages and skirmishes but we simply did not see the same impact from him towards the end, resulting in him dropping down on the tier list.”
Martin ‘Deficio’ Lynge
