2020 LCS Summer Split Awards
This is the 1st LCS All-Pro Team line up for 2020. Three players from Cloud9 made the all pro team, which is ironic as C9 did not make worlds this year. North America’s starting line consists of C9 Licorice (102 points) in the top lane, C9 Blaber (115 points) in the jungle, TSM Bjergsen (115 points) in the mid lane, C9 Zven (104 points) at AD carry, and TL Core JJ (137 points) at support.
Coaching Staff Of The Split
Former shout-caster and new head coach Joshua ‘Jatt’ Leesman led the Team Liquid coaching staff to the first place nomination with 121 points. The coaching staff of Cloud 9 was given the second place nomination, and Golden Guardians in third.
Rookie Of The Year
The rookie of the year award was given to the Team Liquid AD carry Tactical. Tactical replaced Doublelift after the infamous AD carry left Team Liquid for TSM. Tactical however continued to be a strong player and one of the best performers in his role for the summer LCS split.
Honda Most Valuable Player
Team Liquid support, Jo ‘CoreJJ’ Yong-in was the 2020 LCS Summer Split Honda Most Valuable Player. Despite having to work with more than one AD carry, he continued to demonstrate that he is not only the best support in North America, but the league’s most valuable player.
The 2020 Worlds Group Draw is on September 15th.
