6. David “Cop” Roberson

His playing career ended before the LCS really grew and began handing out accolades, but if they had Cop would have been one of the most decorated players in the league’s history. Over his five splits in the LCS, Cop finished top-ten in KDA every split (and led the LCS in Spring 2013), finished top-ten in GPM four times, top-ten in kills four times (finishing second twice), and top-ten in fewest deaths all five splits. That means he finished at the top of just about every statistical category in every split he played.

The fact that he never won LCS or played at Worlds is honestly a massive shame. He’s the Dan Marino of LCS and I mean that as both a compliment and a painful “what-if.”

5. Jake “Xmithie” Puchero

All due respect to Meteos, but Xmithie is the greatest, most-accomplished, jungler in LCS history. He’s played at Worlds the last five years (six appearances overall), won six LCS titles, and has the most first-team All-Pro appearances as a jungler with three. Add on the fact that he’s been a highly-productive player since 2013, and Xmithie is unquestionably one of the best players the LCS has ever seen.

4. Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen

The only mid laner in LCS history who has ever been able to consistently challenge Bjergsen, Jensen is tied with Bjerg in first-team All-Pro appearances with four and has one-fewer overall All-Pro award with eight to Bjerg’s nine. He’s also led the LCS in KDA twice, gold per minute twice, most kills three times, and fewest deaths three times. In 2019 he finally capped his resume by winning his first two LCS titles to go along with his five Worlds appearances, cementing his legacy as one of the best players NA has ever seen.
