Riot Games revealed the 2019 LCS Summer Split All-Pro team.
Each split, LCS teams, casters, and media vote to determine the season's All-Pro team, rookie of the split, coach of the split, and most valuable player.
Riot Games shared the results of the All-Pro team vote and, as expected, it is largely comprised of Team Liquid players. The five players with the most votes are top laner Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong, jungler Dennis “Svenskeren” Jonhsen, mid laner Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen, Support Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in, and bot laner Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng
Team Liquid is indisputably the best team in North America right now.
The defending champion finished the regular season in first place and earned their playoff bye early. They enter the summer playoffs as the clear favorite to win. If they pull it off, it will be their fourth consecutive title.
The only player on the All-Pro team from outside Liquid is Svenskeren. The Danish veteran has become the face of Cloud9 this season, dominating the competition and putting on a master class in the jungle each match. He’s a strong candidate to win the MVP award and it’s not a surprise that he was picked as the best jungler of the season.
Liquid’s jungler Jake “Xmithie” Puchero fell to the second All-Pro team. The second team includes two Cloud9 players in top laner Eric “Licorice” Ritchie and mid laner Yasin "Nisqy" Dinçer. Counter Logic Gaming’s bottom duo Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes and Vincent “Biofrost” Wang complete the team.
Team SoloMid mid laner Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg made it to the third team alongside CLG’s Kim "Ruin" Hyeong-min and Raymond “Wiggily” Griffin, Clutch Gaming’s Sun "Cody Sun" Li-Yu, and Cloud9’s Tristan "Zeyzal" Stidam. Cody Sun and Bjergsen are the only players from their respective teams to make the cut.
The rookie of the split and coach of the split winners will be revealed on August 16, the day before semifinals. The MVP will be shared on August 22.
