Without a doubt, League of Legends is one of the biggest and most popular games in the world right now. It’s got millions of players, developer Riot Games is constantly updating the title with new events, characters, fixes, and more. And on Youtube, a new wave of promotional ads actually use Youtube stars to promote it! It’s huge. But more than that, it’s one of the biggest esports games out there, as teams and players from around the world hone in on their roles and skills to dominate the battlefield.
WIth competitions going on all over the world, you’d think it would be hard to compile a list of the best players in the world. And yet, that is exactly what casters Jatt, Deficio, and Papasmithy did, because Worlds 2017 is coming, and they wanted to see who the best 20 players are in the event, and as such, the best 20 in the world.
To help show off their reasoning, they even did their breakdown in a special video, check it out below.
You’ll notice that every single one of their lists is different, and rarely do they agree on anything. In fact, the only player they agreed on fully was that Faker was No.1 in the world. But still, these lists have had a lot of thought put into them, and each one tries to break down why each and every person on the list made it. It’s not something they take lightly.
The real test now for these League of Legends players is trying to live up to their own hype at Worlds. Can they take home the prize? Will they show their skills to the world? Will they prove why they’re the best? Guess we’ll have to watch and wait to find out. Worlds technically begins this Saturday, with the opening ceremony taking place at 10:00 p.m. PST Saturday night.
