Friday’s LPL-LCK action sees some of the best teams in both leagues in action, including Top Esports. With two $150,000 contests to look forward to, here are some picks to consider from each position of your roster.
Set your lineups here: LOL $150K MOBA Master [$50K to 1st] (LPL-LCK)
JackeyLove not being the most expensive player on this slate is a bit surprising. He is the bot laner for the best team in the LPL this season. He has averaged 5.86 kills along with 6 assists per game this season. He has a KDA of close to 6, which is extremely high by any standards. He even has a creep score of close to 300 per map.
Others to consider: Knight ($12,000)
If your top laner is averaging about one death per game, it’s a real value asset to possess. If your top laner then adds 3.5 kills a game to that, then you have something special. Canna won’t be able to keep up this fantastic start to his summer split in the LCK but he should be able to maintain his efficiency to some degree.
Others to consider: 369 ($6,400)
If you’re going to spend $6,800 on a jungler, make sure that selection can create serious differential value to the rest of the roster. That is definitely the case here with Karsa. He has a KDA of 5.9 for a jungler, which is quite high. He has done that by managing in excess of 10 assists this split along with 2.44 kills.
Others to consider: Beishang ($7,400)
From an offensive perspective, Knight has been unmatched and unparalleled this season. He has managed 6.44 kills per game, comfortably the highest in the LPL. That’s why his price is so high. That’s why he averages 105.5 DKFP per game. He is an extremely strong stacking target from Top Esports as well.
Others to consider: Teacherma ($7,800)
This selection comes down to the type of player you want on your squad. Teddy ($7,600) will give you steady returns, but he isn’t at the same killing level as some others in the LPL, like Jiumeng. I’d prefer offense over value in the ADC category at least, which is why I’ve gone for Jiumeng. You will also need at least one player from Team WE.
Others to consider: Teddy ($7,600)
Lehends has actually been quite solid this split. He has been killed an average of 2.13 times per game, which isn’t nearly bad. He has also added 6.88 assists and 0.63 kills to that in eight games in the summer split. For a price of $5,000, these aren’t bad numbers.
Top Esports ($5,200)
You will not get Top Esports for this price in too many slates. For $5,200, you can draft one of the best teams in China’s professional League of Legends scene. Edward Gaming will not be pushed over but Top Esports is just too strong through their roster.
