Riot Games revealed the EU LCS summer split All-Pro team Friday, one day before the semifinals of the season's playoffs begin.


The players include G2 Esports top laner Martin "Wunder" Hansen, FC Schalke 04 bot laner Elias "Upset" Lipp, and three members of European ​League of Legends powerhouse Fnatic: jungler Mads "Broxah" Brock-Pedersen, mid laner Rasmus "Caps" Winther, and support Zdravets "Hylissang" Iliev Galabov.

Riot announced the All-Pro lineup in a post on the League of Legends esports site before sharing it on Twitter with an accompanying sizzle reel showcasing highlights from each of the chosen players.


Players were selected during the final week of the summer split by a panel including the EU LCS English broadcast team, regional language broadcast teams, third party media, and pro teams. Riot has yet to release the full list of panel members.


Panelists voted on their picks for the best player of the split in each position, and some of the competitions were closer than others. Upset earned his place with 67 points, edging out the second place contender Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau by just four points. Caps, on the other hand, claimed his spot with a comfortable 123 points, 58 ahead of runner up Luka "Perkz" Percovic.

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.
