20. Hai “Hai” Du Lam

Largely regarded as one of the greatest shot-callers of all time, Hai guided those dominant Cloud9 teams to three-straight Worlds appearances starting in 2013. He wasn’t able to replicate that same success on FlyQuest and Golden Guardians, but he is one of the few players who has shown the ability to play multiple positions and that game knowledge can outweigh pure mechanics.

19. Yu “XiaoWeiXiao” Xian

Like Reignover, XiaoWeiXiao proved to be a bit of a flash-in-the-pan in terms of his dominance back in 2014 and 2015. It’s easy to forget that, during his apex, XiaoWeiXiao was consistently top-five in KDA, GPM, and kills in the LCS and won more Player of the Week honors than anyone. Was he not suspended from the LCS in 2015 for elo-boosting, who knows how great the 2014 Summer Split MVP could have been?

18. Noh “Arrow” Dong-hyeon

The 2017 LCS Spring Split MVP, Arrow has been one of the most consistent AD Carries since arriving in the LCS in 2016. He’s finished top 10 in KDA, GPM, and deaths in two splits during his time in NA. Unfortunately, he has yet to find any of the team success or accolades since that MVP season, having never made another All-Pro team or reached the Finals in NA.

17. Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon

Hollo hollo hollo! He may have spent a few years in Europe and Korea, but Huni has played most of his career in NA as a member of either Immortals or Clutch/Dignitas. He’s also finished as a first-team All-Pro twice (in Spring 2016 and Spring 2018) along with a second-team award and two trips to Worlds.

16. Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong

A rock in the top lane for both Cloud9 and Team Liquid, Impact made the LCS All-Pro team six times, two of them being first-team All-Pro. He’s also finished top 10 in KDA among all LCS players twice.
