best league players - Shushei

Shushei's image was transformed into the Rift, becoming an unstoppable killing machine, with one of the highest mechanical abilities of his time. He and Peke played in the mid and top lane, and in a 'meta' where two casters carried the lanes, they exchanged positions uninterruptedly, confusing their enemies.

Shushei's best champions were Gragas and Alistar, along with casters such as Anivia. Shushei was a very important pillar in the Fnatic of that time, along with Lamia, Melisan, Cyanide, and xPeke. All of them managed to crown themselves champions after defeating the French team aAa, with people like Soaz or Yellowstar.

Notable wins:

  • Worlds Season 1
  • Intel Extreme Masters - Hanover

One of the best League players, Alexey " Alex Ich " Ichetovkin is a Russian player born in 1992, and a true legend of the central street, considered by many the best in the world at the time. He played somewhat different champions, such as Malphite, Janna, or Kha’Zix, with whom he gained so much popularity in the community.

Alex Ich was a fundamental pillar in each and every one of Moscow5's victories. During 2011, he won the European regional finals against the most powerful teams of the moment, such as Fnatic, SK Gaming or CLG EU, and also dominated the IEM VI world championship, and the IEM Global Challenge Kiev, against teams such as TSM, CLG, Dignitas or aAa.

3. Zaqueri "Aphromoo" Black

best league players - Aphromoo

One of the great supports of League of Legends, Aphromoo from California played for up to 6 competitive teams as a shooter before joining CLG, where he changed his role since the position they offered him was as a support of Doublelift, which he accepted. Even so, most of the people recognized his potential in the carry role.

The duo of Doublelift and Aphromoo in the bot lane was a dominant force to be reckoned with. Aphromoo's level of support was so impressive with respect to the rest that it was not unusual to see them winning lane after lane. He has been listed as one of the best western supports in history, with an ability to adapt to the game and execute impressive plays.

Notable wins:

  • All-Star 2017 Los Angeles
  • NA Regional Finals

4. Enrique “xPeke“ Cedeño

best league players - xPeke

If we talk about legends, then surely, we have to include Mr. Enrique Cedeño, better known as xPeke in the list. The history of xPeke, unlike that of Shushei, continued well beyond that victory with Fnatic in season 1 against aAa. Season 2 was a disappointment for both him and his fans, because, due to the drop-in level, Fnatic would be out of that World Cup.

But xPeke's extensive reputation for being one of the best and most consistent players in the world increased after his impressive backdoor play in the IEM Season VII Katowice. With 22 victories and 6 defeats, xPeke dominated the first season of the LCS EU.

Notable wins:

  • EU Regional Finals 2015
  • IEM Season 10 San Jose
  • EU LCS 2016 Spring Playoffs

6. Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk

best league players - Ruler

Current world champion and now playing under the name Gen.G (ex Samsung Galaxy) player, Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk is a classic ADC. Owner of a strong personality, the South Korean was one of the only athletes in the world to ignore the ''famous'' 8.11 patch as he continued to play with traditional shooters.

At only 19 years of age, Ruler can be considered a young man from the League of Legends scenario, but the athlete already has plenty of experience in relevant competitions. The pro player used to be criticized for the restricted champion pool early in the career, but today he is more flexible. However, the athlete lacks a League Champions Korea title (LCK).
Making him a deserve a spot as one of the best LoL players of all time!

Notable wins:

  • 2017 World Championship
  • Korea Regional Finals 2018
  • 2018 Asian Games Main Event

7. Kim "Kiin" Gi-in

Kinn emerged as a young sensation in 2017 when he stood out for Ever8 Winners. Although his team was demoted to the second division South Korean, the starlet aroused the interest of Afreeca Freecs, which soon added him to the main squad. In the team, Kiin had the difficult mission to replace Jang "MaRin" Gyeong-hwan, one of the greatest top laners in history.

However, the young man who at the time was 18 did not feel the pressure and continued to present solid performances. Known for the aggressive style of play and risky choices on the upper route (Quinn and Yasuo are some examples), Kiin often does well with champion loaders. The top, however, has a flexible playing style that fits any team situation.

Notable Achievements:

  • Rift Rivals 2018 LCK-LPL-LMS - 1st Place
  • 2018 Asian Games Main Event- 2nd Place
  • LCK 2018 Spring Playoffs-2nd Place

8. Go “Score” Dong-bin

An LCK veteran and a franchise player, Go-Score Dong-bin has been at KT Rolster since October 2012. That's right: six years in the same organization! A sniper and a jungler by choice, Score may not be the king of mechanics, but he is a born strategist. He has been the best jungler in the world for some time and his reign does not seem to collapse.

The KT hunter differs from rivals by position, the way of thinking, executing, and running the game. Some say that Score will always be one step ahead of his opponents. Along with other abilities, he is also known for hitting the beam. Despite a long era in Korea, Score played six playoffs of the LCK era and only won once.

Notable wins:

  • LCK 2018 Summer Playoffs
  • LCK 2018 Summer
  • KeSPA Cup 2017

9. Song "Rookie" Eui-jin

Song "Rookie" Eui-jin is in the best phase of his career. The League of Legends Pro League (LPL) player and mid-laner of China's Invictus Gaming stood out in 2018 with its exceptional plays and collective spirit. No wonder Rookie was the second-ranked athlete with the most MVP titles in the second split of the regular season.

Be it in 1v1 duels, or in team fights, Rookie plays its part with mastery. He is also a leading figure in the Invictus lineup, thanks to the experience gained in China. When in the company of hunter Gao "Ning" Zhen-Ning, the middle laner shines even more. The synergy between the athletes has been the great differential of the Chinese runner-up.

Notable wins:

  • LPL 2018 Summer - East
  • Rift Rivals 2018 LCK-LPL-LMS
  • NEST 2017

10. Jian "Uzi" Zi-Hao

Jian "Uzi" Zi-Hao is the best player in League of Legends of the present time. A current champion of the Mid-Season Invitational and the second split of the LPL, the shooter is looking for the 2018 World Cup to confirm the ''triple crown'' season. For League of Legends World Championship 2018, Royal Never Give Up is one of the heavy favorites to lift up the title.

Uzi has always been a mechanically well-structured athlete. However, he lacked the capacity to make the right decisions at the right time. But now at The LoL World Championship, Uzi is unleashing his true potential on the main stage. Also, worth noting is the farm's ability of the Chinese ace. In both MSI (11.9) and LPL (11), Uzi was the leading statistician per minute. Which makes him one of the best league players of all time.

Notable wins:

  • 2018 Asian Games Main Event
  • Rift Rivals 2018 LCK-LPL-LMS
  • 2018 Mid-Season Invitational

11. Kang "TheShy" Seung-lok

We might not have seen Invictus Gaming competing in the Worlds this year if they didn’t have the services of “TheShy”. He can play multiple roles for his team owing to his aggressive playing style. TheShy has not made an appearance in big competitions so in Worlds he would have to prove his worth. The South Korean has beaten some of the best players in 1v1 confrontations and has made mind-blowing plays this season.

Notable wins:

  • LPL 2018 Summer - East
  • Rift Rivals 2018 LCK-LPL-LMS

  • NA LCS 2018 Spring
  • Korea Regional Finals 2016- 2nd place

14. Yan "Letme" Jun-Ze

Letme might play as a substitute for RNG since he plays in the same position as Uzi plays. However, there is no denying the fact that he has been clinical in every performance. Letme also played as a tank on some occasions and has proved the best initiator for RNG multiple times. If RNG is meant to lift the title this year, “Letme” will be vital for them.

Notable wins:

  • 2018 Asian Games Main Event
  • 2018 Mid-Season Invitational
  • LPL 2018 Spring Playoffs

15. Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok
