Your Rookie and Coach of the 2019 LEC Summer Split are…

It’s time to find out who the top Rookie and Coach are for 2019 Summer Split of the LEC

With round 2 of the LEC Summer Playoffs concluded, it’s finally time to announce our Rookie and Coach of the Split!

Just a week ago we announced our All-pro teams for the split.

The race for rookie of the split had many candidates with Rogue promoting their rookie squad from the Polish Ultraliga and Misfits following in their footsteps later in the season as they brought in the full Misfits Premier roster from the LFL.

 

IN FIRST PLACE:

 

Rookie of the Split

Kacper "Inspired” Słoma - JUNGLE, Rogue - 77 POINTS

 

IN SECOND PLACE:

Emil ‘Larssen’ Larsson - MID, ROGUE - 76 POINTS

IN THIRD PLACE:

Janik "Jenax" Bartels - MID, SK GAMING - 44 POINTS

The Rogue squad performed above everyone's expectations as they were able go from a 10th place finish in spring to a 5th place regular split finish in Summer. A big part of Rogue's success was due to how their mid and jungle duo of Inspired and Larssen performed throughout the split, so it's not a surprise to see them both closely contesting for the rookie award.

In third place is Jenax, who came in at the end of the season. He performed admirably, and with him in the roster the german organization won 4 of their last 6 games in the last three weeks of regular season play, which allowed them to contest for a playoff position via tiebreaker.

 

Now behind every great team, is their coaching staff. The race for coach of the split was also extremely close but there was one name that ended up on top.

IN FIRST PLACE:

 

Coach of the split

Fabian 'Grabbz' Lohmann - G2 ESPORTS - 78 POINTS

IN SECOND PLACE:

Hadrien ‘Duke’ Forestier- SPLYCE - 77 POINTS

IN THIRD PLACE:

Joey ‘Youngbuck’ Steltenpool - FNATIC - 30 POINTS


Grabbz lead G2 Esports to another first place regular split finish, beating their Spring Split record of 13-5 with an even more dominant finish (15-3) so it's no surprise to see him at the top of the voting.

In second place and only a single point behind was Duke, who brought in an improved Splyce roster that fought for the second place position throughout the majority of the split. Unfortunately, the 0-2 week to close out the regular split would mean Splyce would be locked out of top 2 and be unable to qualify to Athens.
