3. Zachary “Sneaky” Scuderi

Back in 2013, 2014, and 2015, no player was as dominant as Sneaky. He finished top-two in KDA three times, GPM once (but finished third twice), and deaths three times. From Spring 2016 through Spring 2019, Sneaky made the All-Pro team every single split, even though he never once made the first-team All-Pro.

Sneaky has been the one constant for Cloud9 in their last seven years, leading the team to a Worlds appearance every year, the longest streak in the LCS. He’s also won two LCS titles in his career and continued to be a statistical juggernaut even seven years after his first appearance (even in a “down” split in Summer 2019, he finished top-ten in all four major statistical categories). If this was his last split as a pro, which seems possible since he’s still looking for a team, what a ride it was for Sneaky.

2. Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng

2018 Summer Split MVP, five first-team All-Pro awards (the most of any player at any position), seven LCS titles (including five-straight going back to the summer of 2017), and five Worlds appearances. Doublelift has been a consistent star in the NA ADC position dominating the awards and almost every statistical category you could name.

He’s led the LCS in GPM five times, kills five times, and led the league in Player of the Week Awards once. If you wanted to make the argument that he is the greatest North American League of Legends player of all time, I wouldn’t be able to stop you.

1. Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg

At the end of the day, there was really no other way this could end. Like Thanos, Bjergsen is inevitable.

He’s won four MVP awards; no one else has even won two. He’s been an All-Pro every single split since they first began giving out the award in Summer 2015, making the first-team four times. Three times he led the LCS in Player of the Week honors over the course of a split; no one else has ever done that twice. He’s got the LCS titles (five), the Worlds appearances (four) to go along with those accolades. He also has the statistical accomplishments.

Next. Grading the 2020 LCS rosters. dark

He finished top two in KDA in five splits (only Sneaky, Meteos and Jensen have done that multiple times). Along with Jensen, he’s the only non-ADC to be in the top-two in GPM twice. He’s also finished top five in that category five times (XiaoWeiXiao, Huni, and Pobelter did that twice and Jensen three times). At the end of the day, even after these last few down seasons, Bjergsen has been the rock of TSM, the face of the LCS, and the greatest, most-decorated player, the league has ever known, and I cannot wait to see him reach greatness once again.
