With the 2021 LCS Mid-Season Showdown starting this weekend, Riot has revealed the All-Pro teams for the league. The teams are based on regular-split performances, during iwhich fans had the chance to vote for the most notable players in each role. The 1st LCS All-Pro team is dominated by C9 and Team Liquid, who both ended the regular split in the top.

Besides the 1st All-Pro team, two other teams have been created for the players coming in at second and third. These spots are occupied by several other teams and some of them were really close in points.
After C9 finished the regular split in the first place, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they are the majority of the first All-Pro team. With three out of five players on the team, C9 is already proving the potential of the 2021 squad. After picking up former G2 Esports star Luka “Perkz” Perković in the offseason, winning the LCS is the only acceptable result for the team. For now, C9 is on the right track with Perkz being rewarded with a spot in the 1st All-Pro team after his first regular split in the LCS.
Besides the three C9 players, Team Liquid support Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in and top laner Barney “Alphari” Morris are taking up the two last spots. Both players have been significant for their team this split and are likely the best top and support duo in the league. Alphari was picked up from Astralis in November last year and has been the rock for Team Liquid that everyone hoped for. The British top laner is currently being praised as one of the best to ever set foot in the LCS and is likely a good candidate for the overall MVP award as well.
On the 2nd and 3rd All-Pro teams, there are players from the other playoffs teams. This includes players from TSM, Evil Geniuses, 100 Thieves, and Dignitas. Here’s a look at how the points were distributed.
