The NA LCS will also give out an award to the most outstanding coach. 

Early favorites for that award include:

Kim "Fly" Sang-chul (Phoenix1), Parth Naidu (Team SoloMid), David "Cop" Roberson (Dignitas).

An award will also be given out for the Rookie of the Split. Rookies have been a major part of the NA LCS this split and the favorites for the award are:

Akaadian (Echo Fox), Contractz (Cloud9), Cody Sun (Immortals)

Finally, the biggest award of them all is the MVP award given to the player deemed to be most valuable to their team. The favorites for this award include:

Jensen (Cloud9), Bjergsen (Team SoloMid), Arrow (Phoenix1), Dardoch (Immortals)

When Does Voting Take Place?

New Rules?

"This split, we’ll be adding a new rule that NA LCS pros and coaches cannot vote for their own players or staff. The methodology and rules from 2016 Summer Split remain the same."
