Caps, on the other hand, claimed his spot with a comfortable 123 points, 58 ahead of runner up Luka "Perkz" Percovic.
After that @MisfitsGG win we automatically qualify for Worlds, and will in worst case secure a 2nd seed for the tournament. Doesn't change our goal of the split though, we still have some work to do in order to reclaim the trophy . With that being said, yaaay, good times!!— Broxah (@BroxahLoL) August 25, 2018
Fnatic's dominance in the All-Pro lineup should surprise no one watching this split of the EU LCS. The team stomped its way to a first place finish in the regular season and looks poised to take the tournament. This is the second All-Pro team in a row with three players from the team, as Caps and Hylissang were previously accompanied by teammate Martin "Rekkles" Larsson.
The All-Pro team is the first of the split honors to be awarded so far, announced alongside the award for best coach of the split. Riot previously announced that it would not award a Rookie of the Split for lack of contenders. The coveted split MVP award remains up for grabs, previous split champion Rekkles failed even to make the All-Pro lineup.
