G2 Esports secured each of the five spots at the LEC Summer All-Pro team.
For the first time since 2015, all the players in the All-Pro team are from the same team. The feat was previously achieved by Fnatic.
Martin “Wunder” Hansen, Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski, Rasmus “Caps” Winther, Luka “Perkz” Perkovic, and Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle were voted as the best players in their respective roles this season.
The result doesn’t come as a surprise considering the outstanding year the organization had so far. G2 took the LEC by storm in the spring, they took the title and represented the region at 2019 Mid-Season Invitational. G2 became the first European tean to win MSI and they did so in impressive fashion.
G2 is heading to the 2019 World Championship but before that, they want to snatch the LEC summer title.
G2 is the team can do everything. They can play anything in any position. Even the players can rotate between roles and still be dominant. The season wasn’t perfect for G2, the squad threw some games when they got too unorthodox with the picks. The losses didn’t hurt G2’s final standing, as they still took first place in the regular season.
The second team consist sof Barney “Alphari” Morris, Andrei “Xerxe” Dragomir, Marek “Humanoid” Brazda, Elias “Upset” Lipp, and Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov.
Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau, Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen, Tim “Nemesis” Lipovšek, Martin “Rekkles” Larsson, and Lee “Ignar” Dong-Geun fell to the third team.
Some complain about G2 Esports dominating LEC All-Pro team
Not everyone was happy with the results.
“There shouldn't be the option to have all 5 players from a team. And no way in hell is Mikyx better than Hylissang lol. And Perkz is not the best ADC Europe has, top 3 maybe,” wrote one fan on Twitter.
Despite being an award voted on by LEC teams, third-party media, and broadcast staff, some fans think the results are biased.
“This is a complete joke... Why should there be a possibility to have 5 men from the same team? It isn’t about synergy in the all-star team, it’s about raw skill on their roles,” wrote another fan.
G2 has a chance to prove they’re a true all-pro team as they face Fnatic in round two of playoffs.
