As the LEC enters its second round robin, it’s worth looking at which players have made the biggest impact in the league thus far.
The competition in the 2020 LEC Summer Split has been historically high, with both rookies and veterans showcasing why Europe is considered one of the strongest League of Legends regions today.
Note that all statistics cited are relative to each player’s respective role.
Alphari is the most dominant top laner during the laning phase, with a gold and CS differential at 10 minutes that beats out every other top laner.
While Alphari is dominating in most statistical categories, he is also showing great variety in his champion pool. He has played six different champions in the first nine games of the split, with his most dominant being his famous Gangplank.
It came as a shock to many when Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek replaced Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen on Fnatic in November 2019, but he is proving himself as an important member of the team. Fnatic has been struggling to find its rhythm in the summer split, but that hasn’t stopped Selfmade from impressing.
Selfmade is currently outperforming other LEC junglers in the early game and has pulled out champions such as Graves, Volibear, and even Nocturne. Selfmade is the key part to Fnatic’s early game, but he will need other teammates to step up before the team is playing up to it’s best again.
Rogue were considered a top 3 contender before the split started, but they are currently exceeding all expectations. Emil “Larssen” Larsson and the rest of the team have been consistently good, ranking at the top of the LEC with a 7-2 record.
It’s been known for years that Larssen is a big talent in the mid lane and now he is finally showing his true potential. Despite the tough competition mid, Larssen is sitting with both the best KDA and most kills in his role.
Ever since his time at H2k-Gaming, Patrik has shown consistency and been a player his team can rely on. Patrik is currently the biggest one-man army in the league, and if his teammates can step up Excel may be able to make a run in the playoffs.
Norman “Kaiser” Kaiser has become a noticeable player in a very short amount of time after making his LEC debut in January. Together with MAD Lions he has managed to take down G2 Esports in a best-of-five, and the team is now tied for first in the summer split.
Kaiser is currently leading in total assists and has both the highest gold and XP differentials at 10 minutes amongst all supports. The stats speak for themselves, but it’s also worth mentioning that Kaiser has been playing everything from the likes of Yuumi to Wukong, showcasing a big champion pool.
