Let’s get right down to business. Whether you are playing to win the F2P Cup, 1v1 Challenge, or taking on a Squad Battle, we all are after the W. We can even make some money on the way. So let’s take a look and see which players can be the biggest value, and who is most deserving of your Captain Crown.
Odoamne – Rogue $260,000 (vs MAD)
It isn’t Wunder, but Odoamne who has been the most dominant Top Laner in the LEC. He is just so dang consistent, scoring 20+ points in each of Rogue’s last 7 wins. He even flashes some upside by ending the season with a 40+ point game. Best Top on the slate.
Elyoya – MAD Lions $270,000 (vs RGE)
Yeah, MAD Lions is not going to beat Rogue… but what if they did?! Well if they did, that would mean Elyoya must’ve went OFF. Elyoya trailed only Jankos in Kills this split, and actually had way more than any of his teammates. The most carry-focused Jungler in the LEC.
Blue – SK Gaming $260,000 (vs FNC)
It is a battle of attrition as Fnatic and SK both limp into the playoffs. Blue will be one of the least experienced players in the playoffs, but has already flashed his skills in multiple games this split. Blue scored 30+ in 3 of SK’s last 4 wins of the season, and his cheap price at the expensive position lets you do whatever you want elsewhere.
Hans Sama – Rogue $320,000 (vs MAD)
While everybody has been going gaga over Rekkles’ numbers, Hans Sama has been having an absolutely insane season of his own. You may not realize it, but he actually has more Kills than Rekkles this split, but still is always slightly cheaper. Take advantage of that.
Mikyx – G2 Esports $130,000 (vs S04)
Mikyx is still a cheat code at Support. Out of any position, there will be no larger gap between #1 and #2 than there will be between Mikyx and whoever finishes in 2nd. His KP plus G2’s CKPM makes for easy points.
Fnatic $250,000 (vs SK)
It may be hard to believe, but Fnatic is the favorite to win this series. Yes they had a very ugly end to the season, but SK’s fall was even uglier. I just want wins from my team and FNC is the cheapest you can pay for a series favorite.
Best Overall Captain: RGE Hans Sama: Kaisa & Senna
Yeah, I could’ve put G2 Rekkles in here (again) but instead went with the player who leads the entire LEC in Kills this split. He has just as much upside as any player, already having 8 games of 30+ points, but is also safer than anybody as he has only failed to score 20 points on 2 occassions. STUD.
Risky Captain: G2 Jankos: Lillia & Nidalee
The Kill totals that Jankos has been finding in his last few games have been NUTS. Every time you look, he seems to be 4/0/0 before even 10 minutes pass. People still believe that he can’t hit Nidalee spears, and boy has he been proving them wrong.
