6. Lawrence “Lost” Sze Yuy Hui (TSM)

The man with the unenviable task of needing to fill Doublelift’s shoes, Lost is unfortunately not coming to his first starting LCS role from a position of strength. Though he was considered a promising ADC in Academy last year, there is still one major deficiency in his game that he will need to improve on for the team to be successful in 2021.

Specifically, Lost is one of the worst ADCs when it comes to his damage output. While his raw DPM of 581 is well above average, Lost’s champion pool was full of high-damage carries like Ezreal and Aphelios. This resulted in him having a -3.94 EDD, which isn’t among the worst but is still well below average.

Other than that, though, Lost is among the upper-echelon of the Academy players making the jump to the LCS this year. He posted a 6.12 aKDA, second-highest of all ADCs in 2020. Most impressively, his 4.8 kills per game was the highest of all ADC players entering 2021.

His laning is overall impressive (237.6 MAGXD @ 15) and he does manage to translate those strong lane performances into a strong late game based on his 441 gold per minute. I don’t think Lost will have much trouble making the leap from the Academy league to the LCS, but don’t expect him to immediately replace Doublelift’s production. With time, though, he could get there as early as this year.
