Riot Games has recently announced the annual All-Star event will be returning this December. From November 13, fans have a chance to vote which pros will participate in the event.
Pros picked by fans, and another six directly invited by Riot, will enjoy this three-day-long tournament in Los Angeles playing different fun game modes such as regional show matches and 1v1 competitions. They will be joined by influencers and other popular League personalities as well.
Each of the regional competitive leagues will have two representatives at All-Star 2019. Fans get to vote for all regions, but only up to 20% of the votes for a player can come from outside their region. Together with the six pros invited by Riot, a total of 32 All-Stars will participate in the event.
Just a few hours into the voting, fans are already showing who their regional favorites are.
The 2019 Worlds finalists might be the next All-Stars
European fans are currently favoring Ramus “Caps” Winther and Luka “Perkz” Perković, which isn’t surprising at all. Both of these players are strong assets of the best LoL European Championship team and the Worlds 2019 runner up G2 Esports.
The most voted Chinese picks are expected as well. FunPlus Phoenix’s world champions Kim "Doinb" Tae-sang and Gao "Tian" Tian-Liang, the 2019 Worlds MVP, will likely be traveling to Los Angeles to play on the All-Star stage.
Doublelift and Bjergsen to represent NA, Faker returns to All-Stars
The LoL Championship Series pros that earned the highest number of votes so far are Team Liquid’s Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng and Team SoloMid’s Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg. Both Doublelift and Bjergsen are veterans on the LCS scene and have built a large fan base during their careers.
From LoL Championship Korea, fans are massively voting for Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok, largely considered to be the best League player in the world, although his last international performance wasn’t as great as one would expect. An All-Star event without Faker is almost unimaginable. The second place position currently belongs to his SK Telecom T1 teammate, jungler Kim "Clid" Tae-min.
Voting will be open until November 20. Fans can make their picks here.
