Slowly, Lwx has increased his overall kill production as this split has progressed. He has plenty of experience and confidence after an extremely productive spring split a few months ago. He is now averaging 3.5 kills per game, which is almost one kill fewer than his spring return, but it won’t take him long to climb back up.
Others to consider: Doinb ($11,400)
LangX had a combined KDA of 3/4/9 on Friday in two maps against Vici Gaming. For a top laner, a kill participation of 6.5 with 1.5 kills per map is quite good. Those numbers can almost be extrapolated over a larger sample size and you have LangX’s split stats of 2.35 kills, 2.59 deaths and 5.18 assists.
Others to consider: Kingen ($5,800)
This might not be the price you ideally want to pay for a jungler but options are more in two-game League of Legends slates. That should allow you the luxury of a high-priced jungler, like Peanut. He has 3 kills, 6.46 assists and 2.29 deaths per game, with a solid KDA of 4.14.
Others to consider: Tian ($7,200)
Doinb is quite an easy target for mid laner because of his overall production. He has averaged 3.39 kills and 6.68 assists per game with just 2.5 deaths. Like Lwx, his production isn’t as high as it was in spring, but these are still stellar returns for a mid laner. Doinb has proved to be one of the best middle laners in the LPL with his consistency.
Others to consider: FoFo ($6,800)
Interestingly, AD Carry would not be the category to save but the prices are low already, which is why two-game slates are favorable to high-priced players in other categories in League of Legends. Kramer has a kill participation rate of close to 10 (3.66 kills and 5.03 assists) and has also been killed an average of 1.63 times per map.
Others to consider: Wings ($7,000)
If you have the budget for Crisp, he is definitely the best pick for support. His only drawback on this slate is his lofty price. Crisp has averaged 7.61 assists per game with 0.78 kills. He has a KDA of close to 3, which is quite steady for a support player considering the propensity to be killed quite easily in team fights.
LGD Gaming ($5,200)
In 14 series this summer, LGD Gaming has won nine with five losses. Bilibili Gaming ($4,600) has the reverse record, with five wins and nine defeats. Bilibili Gaming has just not looked close to efficient right from the opening-series loss to Vici Gaming. LGD Gaming might need three maps but should register its 10th win of the split.
