Lol Players

League of Legends summoner search, champion stats, rankings. Lookup LoL summoners match history, statistics, live spectate, rank, runes and mastery. This is a list of the latest notable player transfers. Since the sources for these transfers are often second hand, it is not always possible to get the exact dates. If they are not available, the time a switch has been announced or the time it first has been publicly discussed can be used instead. When no specific date is known, only months and years are shown.

With most regions ending their respective 2021 Spring Splits, let’s take a look at some of the best-performing LoL players so far. A total of 10 players will make the list, with an honorable mention that we’re going to look at separately. While the best LoL players 2021 list, might not have the ones with the best stats overall, their value is crucial to the overall team performance.

Keep in mind, our list is fluid and will be updated at each stage of the season. Once in Spring and Summer Split and once before MSI and Worlds. Stats will be an important metric that we’re going to consider, as well as overall performance over the season. With that being said, let’s just dive right into it!

Most consistent – G2 Rekkles

Martin “Rekkles” Larsson arrival to G2 made the European organization even stronger than last year. One of the best LoL players of all time, he continues shining even more in his new team. His presence grants G2 the consistent player that they needed: he’s able to carry his team over the finish line even when his teammates have a few rough games. The is definitely going for that Worlds title this year, and with Rekkles on board they have all the best LEC players to do so.

With almost a decade under his belt, Martin has remained one of the top ADCs globally for the his entire career span. His latest results showcase he is far from being done with League any time soon.

Most Talented – G2 Caps

Alongside Rekkles, Rasmus “Caps” Winther is establishing himself as the most talented European player that ever played. Despite not having the best stats overall, his value to the team is visible to anyone watching G2’s games. He is the core & the backbone of the team, showing up whenever it’s time to shine. Caps has his eyes set on Worlds for his fourth consecutive year, after 3 years of almost making it, will this finally be the year he becomes the very best player of LoL, and surpass his “baby Faker” moniker.

Perfect Fit – RGE Odoamne

Odoamne showed that LEC veterans still have the level of play to continue dominating Europe. After last year’s performance on Schalke 04, his recent transfer to Rogue has made him stand out even more. He’s surely in talks to become one of the best league of legends players. An extremely flexible & consistent player, who can be aggressive or passive depending on what the team needs. This is what Odoamne is all about. RGE nailed the off-season by buying him, and the results have come in already. This year’s goal, however, is even higher: if they manage to go to Worlds, how will he & his team fare off against the best lol players in the world?

Best NA Player – TL Alphari

After a disappointing performance from LCS teams in last year’s Worlds, people realized that NA had serious problems. After joining Team Liquid during the off-season, Alphari showed that North America must catch up on a lot of things. The British top laner is smashing everyone else: 28.6% Damage output, 8 solo-kills, and positive stats is basically every single metric possible. No one has been as dominant as him: he’s the best player of LoL in North America and the LCS right now. The only other player who can match that is probably CoreJJ, making TL the best chance NA has on the international stage. Will they deliver at MSI?

Barney “Alphari” Morris

Best KDA – DK ShowMaker

After reigning supreme in last year’s Worlds, the newly-named DK (DAMWON Kia Gaming) continues dominating the LCK in 2021. With such a stacked roster, Heo ShowMaker Su is still able to shine through, with insanely consistent play. Throughout spring, he had the highest KDA out of all the mid laners (which played for most of the split), further showing that he’s one of the best League of Legends players of the recent era. There’s only one big problem: ShowMaker recently stated some health issues that might hinder his performance this season.

If all is well and he retains his form, he might beat the KDA record for both the LCK and Worlds this year.

Best Mechanical player – HLE Chovy

Next on the list is Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon. A truly mechanical god, arguably the best player of LoL in the world in terms of pure individual skills. Last year he carried DRX throughout the whole season; this year, he’s doing that once again on Hanwha Life Esports.

While not having the best stats due to his aggressive playstyle, he is the pure essence of lane kingdom: 18 solo kills! No mid laner has such an insane stat or even comes close. While HLE is surely a Playoffs team, Chovy’s presence grants them the chance to directly go for the championship. And that says a lot about the player’s value…

Best weakside player – DK Khan

Kim “Khan” Dong-ha can be probably a questionable pick for this list. Adding him to the list was mainly based on the fact that he came in to fill in Nuguri’s spot, who recently joined FunPlus Phoenix. Once considered one of the best League of Legends players in LCK, his last few splits were pretty rough.

This split, however, his form has been very stable. While he’s not as flashy and aggressive as Nuguri was, he’s the perfect weakside player that DK needed. Khan allows his teammates to make plays whilst absorbing as much pressure as possible. If Nuguri were there, he would probably die and bleed advantage to the enemies. Khan, instead, doesn’t. And that’s part of what is making DK so consistent, fully deserving to be first in the LCK.

Best Role Swap – RNG Xiaohu

Xiaohu’s main strength comes from his willingness of changing his role, from mid to top. Just like Perkz, he role-swapped to help his team succeed. Result: it’s working wonderfully! He’s able to utilize mid-lane champs in the top lane to demolish his enemies, while also playing tanks, making him an extremely flexible player. And just like other players, having the flexibility can be a game-changer.

Li “Xiaohu” Yuan-Hao is a name that you should definitely keep a track of, especially if RNG makes it out of the hell hole that is the LPL this season.

Best Explosive Performance – WE Beishang

Jiang “beishang Zhi-Peng has made a name for himself this split. A 9-time MVP, with an insane early game presence. Thanks to him, WE are able to gain big leads, eventually snowballing the game. Now that the split is ending, the big test left is against the top teams. Will WE surprise us during the playoffs and win the LPL?

Beishang will surely be an important key for victory… and a strong performance will help him establish himself as one of the best LoL players in 2021. With LoL odds not on Team WE’s side, it might be a time to invest a buck, if you share the same faith in Beishang that we do.

Strongest Laning – TES Knight

Last but not the least, Zhuo “Knight” Ding is back to his form after the big slump at Worlds 2020. Similar to Chovy, Knight excels at laning: +13 CS [email protected] as well as +384 XP [email protected] His individual advantages always transition into something else, making him one of, if not, the best mid laner in the LPL.

If TES is able to go to MSI, then the international stage will be Knight’s time to redeem himself.

GOAT – T1 Faker

After an extremely up & down split by T1, Faker has finally come back to take the lead. His return in the last few games showed why he still deserves it: his contribution to the win against Gen.G showed that T1 still has the potential to be the number 1 of the LCK, and that he personally wants to be the best player of lol ever existed. As long as Faker is playing, odds for T1 in LoL betting will always be favorable.

As long as Faker remains active on the scene, he will always be considered the greatest player that ever moved a mouse on the Summoner’s Rift.

Testimonals are a common marketing tool and have many faces. Some are experts, some are satisfied customers and others are your buddy’s’ best friend. The most famous technique for testimonials in advertising is the use of celebrities because they bring instant interest and recognition. Regarding eSports, the question is: Who are the influencers – and thus potential testimonials – and how much coverage do they bring along?

In order to answer this question, we will publish a series of articles called ‘Testimonials and influencers in eSports’ this week, which will list the most famous eSports players in League of Legends (LoL), Defense of the Ancients 2 (Dota2) and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) including their (potential) reach on facebook (page likes), twitter (followers) and (followers and total channel views).
