Who are the best League of Legends players in each position in the LEC after Week 2?

There have been few surprises out of the LEC to start the Summer Split. G2 and Fnatic are on top, Excel is at the bottom with *rubs eyes in confusion* Vitality? Well, anyway, it’s time to look at the best individual European League of Legends players through Week 2 of play.

Top lane

1. Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau (Fnatic)

A new king in the top lane after a fairly disappointing weekend from our previous #1 Cabochard. Bwipo has shown himself to be one of the most versatile top laners in Europe.

This split, he’s played a different champion in each of the four games he’s played in – including games on Jax and Gnar. Despite his kill participation and kill share being low, he leads the LEC in solo kills. This indicates that Bwipo is fantastic at the heavy split-push/skirmish style, drawing attention towards him and outplaying defenders.

2. Martin “Wunder” Hansen (G2 Esports)
3. Paul “sOAZ” Boyer (Misfits)
4. Lucas “Cabochard” Simon-Meslet (Vitality)
5. Barney “Alphari” Morris (Origen)
6. Ki “Expect” Dae-han (Excel Esports)
7. Tamás “Vizicsacsi” Kiss (Splyce)
8. Kim “Profit” Jun-hyung (Rogue)
9. Andrei “Odoamne” Pascu (FC Schalke 04)

Odoamne had a terrible Week 2, causing him to drop below some low-tier LEC top laners like Profit, Vizicsacsi, and Expect. Funnily enough, he leads the league in adjusted KDA, but also has the worst adjusted kill participation. He accounts for over a third of his team’s deaths while having fairly low kill participation, indicating that – unlike Bwipo – he does a poor job in the split-push style of play.

Combine that with some of the worst early-game laning stats (averaging almost 250g and 150 experience deficit at 10 minutes) and Odo has shown a lot of regression in one week. But that’s what happens when you go a combined 1/11/16 in one week.

10. Toni “Sacre” Sabalić (SK Gaming)
