Teams and Player Overview | All-Star 2016 Barcelona

With the 2016 World Championship having concluded there are many teams swapping players around, but before the new season kicks off we’ve got an extremely entertaining event in our midst. The League of Legends All-Star 2016 event will be kicking off on Thursday, December 8th, and finishing on Sunday, December 11th, in Barcelona, Spain!

  2. Odoamne (H2K) – 21,3%
  3. Kikis (FNC) – 10%
  4. Wunder (SPY) – 10,4%
  5. Cabochard (VIT) – 8,8%

EU LCS sOAZ Top All Star 2016 BarcelonaIt was quite a close call for the EU LCS All Star top laner, SoaZ beat Odoamne by only 2% and after a set of strong performances by him it’s understandable why a large portion of EU fans wanted him to be the All Star. SoaZ came out on top because he’s a long term well-loved EU LCS player who’s constantly strived to be the best; his attitude towards the game and his fans has always had him in a strong position to win an audience vote.

EU LCS Jungle-Voting

  1. Jankos (H2K) – 38,3%
  2. Amazing (OG) – 15,6%
  3. Trick (G2) – 11,3%
  4. Spirit (FNC) – 11,3%
  5. Trashy (SPY) – 6,9%

EU LCS Jankos Jungle All Star 2016 BarcelonaJankos took this year’s EU LCS All Star jungler vote by a large margin. He sat on 38.3% and the closest to him was Amazing on 15.6%. A lot of people were lead to believe that Trick from G2 Esports was going to be a favourite because of how well he has performed in the EU LCS but after Jankos put on phenomenal performances during the World Champions the votes quickly stacked in his favour.

EU LCS Midlane-Voting

  1. xPeke(OG) – 35,2%
  2. Febiven (FMC) – 21,5%
  3. Ryu (H2K) – 10,9%
  4. Exileh (UOL) – 7,2%
  5. PerkZ (G2) – 6%

EU LCS xPeke Mid All Star 2016 BarcelonaxPeke is to Europe what the sun is to the sky; an absolute star. If you ask an EU LCS fan what middle laner has been the favourite over the years the chances are you’ll hear xPeke. We’ve not seen too many performances from xPeke this year but from what we have seen he’s been holding up well. After his team, Origen, avoided relegations and made a stand for the EU LCS people must be excited to see his performances again.

EU LCS AD-Carry-Voting

  1. Rekkles (FNC) – 43,1%
  2. FORG1VEN (H2K) – 24,1%
  3. Zven (G2) – 12,1%
  4. Steeelback (ROC) – 4,3%
  5. Kobbe (SPY) – 4,3%

EU LCS Rekkles ADC All Star 2016 BarcelonaRekkles has been a fan favourite EU LCS Marksman for quite some time now, he’s got a lovable attitude and has always appreciate his fans. His team may have been in a decline but from recent news things could be looking up for them. He’s had formidable international performances and is known across the world, winning the vote should have come as no surprise.

EU LCS Support-Voting

  1. YellOwStaR (FNC) – 34,7%
  2. mithy (G2) – 18,1%
  3. KaSing (VIT) – 14,8%
  4. Vander (H2K) – 9%
  5. Hylissang (UOL) – 6,3%

EU LCS Mithy Support All Star 2016 BarcelonaOriginally the vote went to YellOwStar who had a 34.7% vote but after his retirement and his move to Paris St. Germaine the 2nd place player, Mithy, took the position to represent Europe at the All Star event. Mithy has been a support player that organisations have been fighting over, he’s had strong performances and when paired with Rekkles he’s going to be a high impact player.

  4. Morning (JT) – 4,6%
  5. Vayn3z (M17) – 3,7%

LMS Ziv Top All Star 2016 BarcelonaZiv managed to take the LMS top lane All Star vote by a huge margin; he was more than 50% ahead of the 2nd player. Ziv has had a few phenomenal international performances as well as some great regional ones, he’s a bit of a double edged sword but he’s also a force to be reckoned with. If he gets ahead he could be the deciding factor of an entire game so keep your eyes on him.

LMS Jungle-Voting

  1. Karsa (FW) – 49%
  2. DinTer (HKE) – 30,1%
  3. Mountain (AHQ) – 9,5%
  4. baybay (AHQ) – 2,8%
  5. Taizan (M17) – 2,3%

LMS Karsa Jungle All Star 2016 BarcelonaIt’s not much of a surprise to see Karsa win the vote for the LMS All Star top lane. He’s a key part of the Flash Wolves team and they’ve regularly had dominant and formidable performances on an international level. They’re the most successful team against the Korean teams and if the LMS want to find success then working with the Flash Wolves top laner is definitely a good way to get things done.

LMS Midlane-Voting

  1. Maple (FW) – 48,6%
  2. Westdoor (AHQ) – 24,2%
  3. Gear (HKE) – 9,2%
  4. FoFo (JT) – 7,7%
  5. Apex (M17) – 2,6%

LMS Maple Mid All Star 2016 BarcelonaWith recent international performances, seeing Maple take the LMS All Star middle lane vote comes as no surprise. He’ll work fantastically with Karsa and together I expect them to make phenomenal rotations and plays together. Maple has been a strong performing middle lane player in his region for quite a long time and extending his international record will only make him more appealing.

LMS AD-Carry-Voting

  1. BeBe (JT) – 56,1%
  2. NL (FW) – 14,5%
  3. AN (AHQ) – 13,3%
  4. Dee (M17) – 5,5%
  5. Raison (HKE) – 5,4%

LMS Bebe ADC All Star 2016 BarcelonaBeBe is a previous World Championship winner and that’s probably a large reason why he won the vote. He’s not had the greatest or most formidable performances recently but this could be his chance to make an international impact once again and prove that he’s still as good as he was when he took the World Championship.

LMS Support-Voting

  1. Albis (AHQ) – 43,4%
  2. SwordArt (FW) – 12,5%
  3. Jay (JT) – 11,5%
  4. Olleh (HKE) – 11,2%
  5. Kaiwing (MSE) – 8,1%

LMS Albis Support All Star 2016 BarcelonaAlbis from AHQ is going to be well prepared for his All Star performances. He’s taken the vote by a 30% margin and when paired with Ziv he’s going to be ready to surprise. Albis has been with AHQ since season 1 and is considered one of the main reasons AHQ is a quality team; let’s hope he can do the same for the All Stars!

LPL We1less Mid All Star 2016 BarcelonaPreviously known as Pain Evil and GoDV, We1less has quite a reputation. Not all of it is positive either; he’s been mocked and battered by the League of Legends community for many things but he’s come back stronger each time.

LCK Pray ADC All Star 2016 BarcelonaAnother large margin separates PraY from the other payers in the Korean ADC vote. PraY has nearly double the votes of the person in 2nd place and the Korean fans are determined to build a super team to represent their region. PraY was a member of the Rox Tigers until the end of Season 6 and was a very determined and dominant player, when paired with a capable support he’ll be able to stun the world.

If you’re familiar with the North American League of Legends scene it might not seem surprising that he won but such a huge lead in votes was quite a shock. Bjergsen has been a fundamental part of Team Solo Mid and has continuously improved to stay on top of the competition; he’ll be representing his team and North America on an international stage and his challengers will be tough.
