Mid Lane

1. Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage (FlyQuest)
2. Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen (Team Liquid)
3. Yasin “Nisqy” Dinçer (Cloud9)
4. Henrik “Froggen” Hansen (Dignitas)

I’ve long held that Froggen is one of the most valuable and underrated mid laners from how good he is in lane and teamfights. His 116.4% adjusted kill participation and raw 77.3% kill participation are both best among mid laners and he has the second-highest damage share for mid laners behind PowerofEvil‘s ridiculous 36.3%

Now, he didn’t play well this past weekend, going 2/2/1 on Ziggs in the loss to FlyQuest and 0/2/1 on Anivia and I know a lot of people are going to point to those two champion picks as obstacles for Dignitas. But I still think Froggen can be a key contributor on days when he doesn’t have to face PoE or Nisqy.

5. Eugene “Pobelter” Park (CLG)Eugene “Pobelter” Park (CLG)
6. Greyson “Goldenglue” Gilmer (Golden Guardians)
7. Daniele “Jiizuke” di Mauro (Evil Geniuses)
8. Jérémy “Eika” Valdenaire (Immortals)

Eika has been having a quiet season and has been looked at as a weak point for Immortals. Though he’s certainly not performing well, Eika hasn’t been the worst mid laner in the LCS like most fans would have thought at the beginning of the year.

Eika has actually been great about not dying needlessly, averaging 1.9 deaths per game and only giving up 7 unforced deaths. He’s also been fairly solid in terms of keeping his income up. Where he is certainly lacking is in his laning (he’s graded our third-worst laner behind Crown and Ry0ma) and damage dealt (400 DPM is ahead of only Crown).

9.Tommy “ry0ma” Le (100 Thieves)
9. Lee “Crown” Min-ho (CLG)
10. Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg (TSM)

I’ve been saying for a while that Bjergsen has been the problem for TSM this split and that was laid bare last week. He looked awful on Zoe, missing every skillshot imaginable and I think I could count on one hand the number of Bubbles he landed.

Bjergsen doesn’t get a lot of flak because of his low death numbers and good KDA, but people overlook the fact that when Bjergsen does die, he gives away bad deaths. His unforced death-to-death ratio (0.54) is second-highest behind Ry0ma, and just barely ahead of Pobelter. Compare that to Jensen, a player who also dies very little but never gives away bad deaths and has a 0.19 unforced death-to-death ratio.
