15. Johnny “Altec” Ru

Altec is never going to be a guy who is mentioned with the great LCS AD Carries, and frankly that’s a damn shame. He may have only made one All-Pro team in his career (third-team All-Pro in 2015 Summer) but he’s finished top-ten in Player of the Week honors in two splits, been top-ten in KDA four splits, top-ten in kills four times, top-ten in fewest deaths four times, and top-ten in GPM five times. That’s an incredibly productive career for a guy who rarely gets the nod for his production each split.

14. Apollo “Apollo” Price

Similarly, Apollo has never made an All-Pro team in his career despite being top five in those major statistical categories over two splits back in 2014 Summer and 2015 Spring. But he’s also shown longevity, placing in the top-ten of those statistical categories fifteen times over seven different splits. In Spring 2019, he was a top-ten LCS player in kills per game and GPM.

13. Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes

Rounding out our group of “ADCs who don’t get near enough respect” is Stixxay. Now, at least he has two All-Pro awards (he was second-team All-Pro in Summer 2019) but not enough people talk about the fact that he was top-ten in gold per minute in six different splits. He also has an LCS title and Worlds appearance on his resume, something his two other underrated AD contemporaries lack.

12. Eugene “Pobelter” Park

The outcry for Pobelter not having an LCS spot this offseason was warranted based on his career statistics. Two All-Pro awards, top-five in Player of the Week awards three different splits, and he’s finished top-five in KDA or GPM three times. He’s also made Worlds three times with three different teams (Team Liquid, Immortals, and CLG) and won four LCS titles.

11. Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett

Amid all the controversy surrounding Dardoch, one cannot deny the level of talent Dardoch’s shown during his career. He was a first-team All-Pro in the Spring of 2018, during which he also finished third in Player of the Week honors and ninth in KDA overall. He’s also finished on an LCS All-Pro team an astonishing five splits in his career, joining only the players in our top-five on this list to do so.
