The All-Pro teams and regular split MVP for the 2022 LCK Spring Split have been crowned, and T1 is at the top of everyone’s list.
To the surprise of no one, it was T1 who ran with most of the titles in this split’s All-Pro teams and also featured the regular split MVP. After breaking records and going 18-0 during the regular split, T1 has by far been the most dominant team in Korea. This has now been rewarded with four players on the first All-Pro team and the regular-split MVP.
The MVP award goes to support Ryu “Keria” Min-seok, who is the first support to ever win the title. The young support has been the backbone of T1 this split and often the primary engager on champions such as Nautilus, Thresh, Zac, and even Renata Glasc.
This was more than recognized in this MVP voting, based on his impact on the map and record-breaking amount of assists. During this split, Keria set an all-time LCK record for most assists in a single split with 462 total. This record was previously held by former T1 support Lee “Wolf” Jae-wan.
For the three All-Pro teams, T1 was also the team to dominate heavily. On the first All-Pro team, T1 secured four out of five spots with only a single one going to another team. The lone spot that T1 didn’t get is in the jungle, where DWG KIA jungler Kim “Canyon” Geon-bu beat out T1’s Moon “Oner” Hyeon-joon.
Besides Canyon in the jungle, the first All-Pro team is full of the T1 stars who remain undefeated this split. T1 jungler Oner ended up on the second All-Pro team, joining the likes of Gen.G pair Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon and Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk. Most surprising is that KT Rolster top laner Kim “Rascal” Kwang-hee took a spot on the second All-Pro team despite not making playoffs as KT Rolster saw a disappointing spring performance.
On the third All-Pro team are representatives from Gen.G, DWG KIA, DRX, and Kwandong Freecs. All of these players have been stellar throughout the split without being considered among the absolute best in their role. All of them will be participating in the upcoming playoffs, where they’ll have a further opportunity to prove themselves.
The 2022 LCK Spring Split playoffs kick off on Wednesday, March 23, with a best-of-five quarterfinal between DWG KIA and Fredit BRION.
