This week on The Invade, Matt Best was joined by Mark Horner and Matt Hempstead to hand out WWG's NA LCS and EU LCS Spring Split Awards.
Recently lolesports announced their EU LCS All-Pro team. Here at WWG, we decided to come up with our own EU LCS All-Pro team. Lolesports' team consisted of Vizicsacsi in the top lane, Trick in the jungle, Perkz in the mid lane, Zven as the AD Carry, and IgNar as the support. Matt Hempstead of Shot Callers eSports had different thoughts for what the EU LCS All-Pro team should have looked like.
"If I were to build the best line-up in Europe, this is what it would look like," explained Hempstead. "Visicsacsi has proven himself to be the best top laner in Europe. He's capable of being the front-line of a team but he can also seamlessly switch to a carry, split-pusher role."
In accordance with Hempsteads EU LCS MVP pick, he stuck with KaKAO in the jungle. "KaKAO has done a lot in his first split with a brand new roster and his performance will continue to get better as the team meshes," said Hempstead. Keeping the same in the mid lane, Hempstead agrees with the choice at hand. "Perkz has shaken off his inconsistencies and is clearly the top mid laner in EU. The only ones who can really hold a candle to him are Febiven and Exileh."
Things get spicier when it came to Hempstead's ADC pick. "Now to the controversial one in Rekkles at ADC," said Hempstead. "It's very close between him and Zven but at the end of the day, Rekkles has the best KDA amongst EU ADC's despite being on a team that finished the regular season at 6-7. He's once again the backbone of Fnatic and without him, they wouldn't be in a position to take down G2. Speaking of G2, it was a toss up between Mithy and IgNar but eventually I went with Mithy because of what he brings to G2 away from the stat sheet while in game."
