Snowball and the LCO presents: Your All-Pro Team for LCO 2022 Split 1

The table-topping Chiefs had a heavy presence in the LCO lineup.

On the eve of the LCO 2022 Split 1 Grand Finals, league organisers have unveiled the competition’s All-Pro Team, as voted by the experts, right here on Snowball Esports.

Another amazing regular season has come and gone for the LCO — Delivered by Menulog, and eight teams have become two on the road to the 2022 Mid-Season Invitational, to be hosted in Korea next month. This split saw the Chiefs emerge as standout regular-season kings, crowned by an impressive 19-2 record which included a 14-game winning streak. 2021 champions Peace and Pentanet.GG, as well as the Dire Wolves and eventual surprise grand finalists Order made up the rest of the playoff field.

To celebrate the end of the third LCO split, the Oceanic competition called up its players, coaches, broadcast talent, and several media representatives to vote on the first 2022 All-Pro team.

Now, votes have been tallied and the team is in:

Following on from last year, league organisers also called upon the LCO fans to pick their own illustrious team: the Fan-Chosen LCO 2022 Split 1 All-Pro Team. While some selections remained the same, several different standout stars were also honoured in the viewer-voted lineup.

Fan-voted LCO All-Pro Team

  • Top: Kim “Topoon” Ji-hoon — The Chiefs

  • Mid: James “Tally” Shute — The Chiefs
  • Bot: Quin “Raes” Korebrits — The Chiefs

In addition to the All-Pro teams, the called upon experts were also asked to nominate the player they believed had improved the most from the start to the end of the split. The winner of the Most Improved is…

  • Jeung “DaJeung” Da Woon — Gravitas

Given the absolute dominance from the Chief throughout the LCO regular season, it should come as no surprise they make the majority of the expert-chosen All-Pro roster. Raes and Dragku have been a force to be reckoned with in the bot lane this split and were influential in their org’s early 2022 success. Topoon has been a rock in the top lane after returning to Oceania, and Korean superstar BalKhan didn’t miss a beat either; his supremacy Down Under picked right back up from 2019. Rounding out the team is Peace’s Apii, who role-swapped back to mid lane and quickly made the middle of Summoner’s Rift his own personal kingdom.

In the most improved category, DaJeung was a standout choice. The Gravitas mid laner has been key to the eight-placed team, keeping his team in games and leading them to several victories, few as they were. If DaJeung can continue his rise, Gravitas will likely climb the ladder in Split 2.
