Captain

Mystic ($12,000)

Mystic has the fourth-best kill rate in the LCK, averaging 4.14 kills a game. He also adds more than four assists, taking his kill participation rate over eight. Facing a struggling SeolHaeOne Prince team, Mystic might even improve on this averages. He even has a creep score of 333, the fourth highest in the LCK.

Other to consider: ShowMaker ($12,000)


Top

Biubiu ($6,000)

With 2.43 kills and 1.89 deaths, Biubiu has proved to be one of the best top laners in the LPL this split. He’s even added 4.75 assists per game to that. Victory Five has continued to make rapid progress up the LPL standings and Biubiu has played a big part in keeping the top lane relatively open for his team.

Other to consider: Kiin ($6,600)


Jungler

Peanut ($6,200)

Peanut provides so many options because his price is incredibly low. A jungler for just $6,200 will allow you to move in any direction for most other categories of your roster. He has averaged 2.89 kills and 6.74 assists. Impressively, he also has a KDA of 4.73, second highest in LGD Gaming.

Other to consider: Weiwei ($6,800)


Mid

ShowMaker ($8,000)

ShowMaker has had astounding success in the middle lane in the summer split of the LCK. In fact, he has the third most kills (4.36 per game). He also has the best KDA in both leagues with 14.5, built primarily on an efficiently low death rate of just 0.82. The sample size isn’t low either because he has played 22 games in summer so far.

Other to consider: Fly ($7,400)


ADC

Ghost ($7,800)

Ghost’s preferred engagement style doesn’t revolve around simply racking up kills. It’s a more concerted and methodical style of play, which includes engaging in team fights only when there is good reason. He has 3.45 kills and 7.14 assists, solid offensive metrics by any standard. He isn’t overly expensive either at $7,800 for a bot laner of his level of output.

Others to consider: SamD ($7,200)


Support

SwordArt ($5,000)

SwordArt is a good hedging play from Suning. Even though Victory Five has the upper hand, it isn’t straightforward. He has quite a high kill participation rate of 1.21 kills and 8.14 assists per game. That earns him an impressive KDA of 4.09.


Team

Victory Five ($5,200)

Looking back at spring, it seems quite unfathomable that Victory Five didn’t even win one series. That has turned around in summer dramatically. V5 has now won 8 of 11 series, positioned fourth in the LPL. In terms of maps, the team has won 19 of 28 games.
