The first all-pro team is interesting because of how it demonstrates the dominance of Cloud9 this season as they take 3/5 spots. However, it also shows how impactful Alphari IS to Team Liquid as he takes the top lane spot over Impact (who he replaced on Team Liquid).
In terms of supports, CoreJJ’s dominance is evidently displayed as he is still seen as the best support, and potentially the best player in the LCS. Followed by Vulcan who is the most talented North American born support in years. Both of which also beat out TSM Swordart, who infamously was signed to a 6 million dollar contract earlier this year.
Cloud9’s Blaber’s dominance was evident as he was the only player in the league to win multiple (2) player of the week awards. Additionally, he also had the highest player of the game awards (7).
Though the regular season is over, there is still the Mid-Season Showdown, which is meant to replace the spring split playoffs. With the winner of the tournament going to Mid-Season Invitational (MSI), due to the recent format changes to LCS.
Due to the Covid-19 in 2020, MSI was unfortunately cancelled last year. However this year it is taking place in Iceland and is the first international event since the 2020 World Championship.
The second round of the Mid-Season Showdown kicks off today (March 21st 2021) with first-placed Cloud9 and fourth-placed 100 Thieves playing a best of 5 series in the winners bracket.
