It’s All-Star time. Our final event of the year is back and reformulated to be a celebration of everything fans love about League: the game, the competition, and the community. Here’s everything you need to know to prepare yourself for the ultimate All-Star Experience.
A veteran of the NA LCS, Doublelift has found consistent domestic success regardless of the team around him. His team has won the last three NA LCS splits, he's tied for the most career NA LCS titles, and recently took home the award for 2018 Summer Split MVP.
Known as much for his memes as he is for his consistent international performance, Sneaky is the rock for Cloud 9. If you think his gameplay is good, you should see his cosplay.
Licorice joined the C9 roster in Spring and came out swinging. He took home rookie of the split in Spring, 3rd place in the MVP vote in Summer, and established himself as a crucial component of C9's success, both domestically and internationally.
Fnatic’s venerable mid lane star hardly needs an introduction. Baby Faker’s team conquered both 2018 EU splits, he nabbed the 2018 Summer Split MVP award, took down NA during the 2018 Rift Rivals, and was the first European team to make Worlds Finals since Season 1.
Broxah rose from Fnatic’s Academy squad to global greatness, and since his pro debut, he’s demonstrated why. The Danish powerhouse is renowned for his Lee Sin play, his hyper aggressiveness, and his ability to adapt to every meta.
The Italian Stallion has quickly become one of EU’s top mid laners to watch. Team Vitality’s Jiizuke was the first Italian to compete in the European league and completely embodies the spirit of his team. Watchout out for his trademark Ryze and pocket pick Ekko.
2018 has been a year of firsts for China's most iconic player and reigning All-Star 1v1 Champion. Not only did Uzi take home the LPL championship for the first time, he led his team to international wins at Rift Rivals, MSI, and the Asian Games.
You’re never safe in your own jungle if MLXG is on the Rift. Known for his predatory, hyper-aggressive play style, he has established himself as one of the most feared players in the LPL.
The LPL's favorite import: Rookie was seen as a very stable, consistent player when he joined the league in 2015. With IG's win at Worlds this year, however, Rookie has established himself as one of the best players in the world and brought the title of World Champion to the LPL for the first time.
He needs no intro. By far the most storied name in global esports, Faker has built a dominant career by winning six LCK splits, three World Championships and two MSIs.
When you’re on a team with Faker, the expectations are high. Since 2014, Bang has met those expectations, establishing himself as one of the best team-fighting ADCs in the world, knowing when he needs to step up and carry, and when he needs to stay safe and support his team.
Aggression with a smile. Known for pressuring, outplaying, and overwhelming his opponents-- and laughing while doing it. Don’t challenge him to a smite fight.

The greatest Brazilian player of all time. Famous for his Draven, Twitch and Kalista, he has a drive to win it all and to make his name known worldwide. He has 4 CBLoL titles to his name.
He’s come a long way from his Zilean/Morgana days. While his 2018 season was a tumultuous one, his “hero’s return” to the league made him a fan favorite. If you hear the words “vem pro pai” watch out for Rakin.

The Fizz and TF legend. The Solo queue god. The solo kill master. Westdoor has been an LMS legend since 2012 and continues to be the face of AHQ.

A rising rookie top laner known for his split push bruiser play style. Since Rockky entered the Thai Pro scene, he has been on the rise and makes a strong case for best top laner in Thailand.
