Captain

Jiumeng ($11,700)

Jiumeng has comfortably led the production for Team WE this summer split. He has averaged 4.17 kills per game, which is an impressive achievement in its own right. He has 6.03 assists as well. Even though his KDA is 4.05 on account of a relatively high death rate (2.52 per game), he still has a creep score of 324.

Others to consider: Fenfen ($11,400)


Top

Xiaobai ($6,200)

Staying reliable in the top lane is extremely important because if the top laner isn’t doing the job it leaves his colleagues requiring to teleport to help him out, leaving the rest of the Summoner’s Rift up for the taking. Xiaobai has been solid with 2.61 kills and 2.93 deaths per game. He has also chipped in with close to five assists per game.

Others to consider: Morgan ($6,400)


Jungler

Wei ($6,800)

Wei is a crucial selection because he is the most effective killing weapon for eStar. That’s also been a problem for the team because your jungler shouldn’t be surpassing the mid and bot laner in kills. Not to take anything away from Wei’s flanking skill though. He has registered an average of 3.41 kills and 2.9 deaths per game.

Others to consider: Beishang ($7,000)


Mid

Teacherma ($7,400)

Even though Fenfen ($7,600) has been steady for eStar, he hasn’t outperformed other mid laners in summer. Teacherma has done much better than expectations. He has put up 2.79 kills along with 6.93 assists. A kill participation of over 10 is the first check for Teacherma’s selection. He can improve on his kill rate though.

Others to consider: Fenfen ($7,600)


ADC

ZWuji ($7,400)

Zwuji’s inclusion opens up unprecedented opportunities for support and team. Since he is so inexpensive, you don’t need to worry about the price of the other categories. He is also a hedging target to cover all bases from all teams, particularly because Rogue Warriors starts as slight favorites against eStar.

Others to consider: Wings ($7,000)


Support

Missing ($5,800)

These are beneficial categories on account of some inexpensive choices in previous categories. Missing has put up 8.86 assists per map, which is rather high by any comparison metric. He even has a KDA of close to 3. He has averaged 53.4 DKFP per game, the only support to cross the 50 DKFP mark.


Team

Team WE ($5,200)

I actually think eStar ($5,000) might beat Rogue Warriors ($4,800) but the level of certainty is definitely more for Team WE, a team that has won 7 of 11 series in the summer season so far. There is plenty of confidence and skill in the Team WE roster, which isn’t the same with Bilibili Gaming ($4,200).
