Here are the best performing players by position in the LCS after Week 5 of the Spring Split.

Having crested the half-way mark of the LCS Spring Split, most pundits are handing out their midseason awards and we will be no exception. Today we rank every single player in the LCS by position, hand out our midseason MVP and All-LCS team awards, and give our perspective on which players still have room to improve.

Top Lane

1. Eric “Licorice” Ritchie (Cloud9)
2. Sergen “Broken Blade” Çelik (TSM)
3. Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho (100 Thieves)

Ssumday has been a bright spot on an otherwise disappointing and inconsistent 100 Thieves team. Although his kill participation is quite low, even for a top laner, he leads the role in solo kills.

4. Kim “Ruin” Hyeong-min (CLG)
5. Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong (Team Liquid)

As TL begins to climb the standings, so too does Impact begin to climb the top lane leaderboards. This week, he had one good game on Sett and one bad one, but with so many top laners having such terrible damage and kill participation numbers, Impact begins to look a lot better by comparison.

6. Kevin “Hauntzer” Yarnell (Golden Guardians)
7. Ziqing “Kumo” Zhao (Evil Geniuses)
8. Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon (Dignitas)

The man who got one of the richest contracts of the offseason, Huni has certainly been underperforming for Dignitas this spring. Among the most surprising stats of Huni that jump out at me are his kill share (15.6%, ahead of only sOAZ) and his below-average laning statistics. He averages CS and experience discrepancies at 15 minutes.

9. Omran “V1per” Shoura (FlyQuest)
10. Paul “sOAZ” Boyer (Immortals)

Speaking of sOAZ, the French import hasn’t been up to snuff this spring, including being one of the worst laners in the LCS. He averages over 300 gold and 400 experience deficits at 15 minutes despite having the second-highest jungle proximity for all top laners.
