With the first split of this year’s LEC, the votes have been tallied up to name the KIA All-Pro Team of Spring 2020. Established coaches, players, talents and journalists were called upon to pick three players for each of the five positions, and the results see the undefeated G2 Esports roster heavily lauded for their recent form.

Interestingly the LEC shared how the votes were cast in a public accessible doc, allowing us to have a better overall view of the hottest picks.

All-Pro Team 1

Barney “Alphari” Morris – Top, Origen – 82 points
Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski – Jungle, G2 Esports – 114 points
Luka “Perkz” Perkovic – Mid, G2 Esports – 112 points
Martin “Rekkles” Larsson – ADC, Fnatic – 108 points
Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle – Support, G2 Esports – 95 points

In the first place All-Pro Team, G2 Esports’s Jungler Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski and mid-laner Luka “Perkz” Perkovic came away with the most first place votes, with 36 of the 41 experts deeming them the most prolific in their role. Meanwhile Fnatic’s Martin “Rekkles” Larsson came away with 34 first place votes for the ADC role, the best result for any player on his team.

Interestingly the nine On-Air talent experts – which includes the likes of Trevor “Quickshot” Henry, Eefje “Sjokz” Depoortere and Aaron “medic” Chamberlain – all went for Jankos, Perkz and Rekkles.

In the top lane OG’s Barney “Alphari” Morris came out on top with 82 points, only 3 points ahead of Fnatic’s Gabriel “Bwipo” Rau. Elsewhere, G2 Esports’ Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle secured 95 points for best support, his closest rival Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov of Fnatic, who scored 80 points.

All-Pro Team 2

Gabriel “Bwipo” Rau – Top, Fnatic – 79 points
Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek – Jungle, Fnatic – 66 points
Tim “Nemesis” Lipovsek – Mid, Fnatic – 49 points
Elias “Upset” Lipp – ADC, Origen – 53 points
Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov – Support, Fnatic – 80 points

The second place All-Star Team is just a Rekkles short of being the entire Fnatic roster, and for good reason. Fnatic finished joint runners-up with Origen in the group stage with a 13-5 record. ADC Elias “Upset” Lipp is the only Origen player to make it into the second place team, securing 53 votes,  compared to Rekkles 108.

All-Pro Team 3

Martin “Wunder” Hansen – Top, G2 Esports – 69 points
Andrei “Xerxe” Dragomir – Jungle, Origen – 33 points
Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten – Mid, Misfits Gaming – 33 points
Rasmus “Caps” Winther – ADC, G2 Esports – 33 points
Norman “Kaiser” Kaiser – Support, Mad Lions – 42 points

The third place team houses the final two members of G2 Esports, Martin “Wunder” Hansen and Rasmus “Caps” Winther. However, the standout members are Norman “Kaiser” Kaiser of Mad Lions and  Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten of Misfits Gaming, the only players in their team to be voted in, and also the only players to not be part of a top 3 groupstage team in the LEC Spring 2020.

Overall the results of the KIA All Pro Team demonstrate just how formidable G2 Esports have been thus far, but also just how closely Fnatic are on their heels.
