The League Of Legends European Championship shared the 2022 spring split, regular season All-Pro team on Tuesday. While there were some new faces, this wasn’t the first time Andrei “Odoamne” Pascu, Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov and Elias “Upset” Lipp earned LEC All-Pro honors in the award’s long history.

Ever since its introduction in 2015, there have been fourteen EU LCS and LEC All-Pro teams. Except for 2021, when fans voted for those awards, each team has always been chosen by “experts” in the industry. But who all has been included, and how many times? Which team has produced the most, best players?
Let’s dive into the history of those awards and who won them.
All-Pro Top laners
Summer 2015: Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon (FNC)
Spring 2016: Lucas “Cabochard” Simon-Meslet (VIT)
Summer 2016: Martin “Wunder” Nordahl Hansen (SPY)
Spring 2017: Kiss “Vizicsacsi” Tamás (UOL)
Summer 2017: Paul “sOAZ” Boyer (FNC)

Summer 2018: Wunder (G2)
Spring 2019: Cabochard (VIT)
Summer 2019: Wunder (G2)
Spring 2020: Barney “Alphari” Morris (OG)
Summer 2020: Alphari (OG)
Spring 2021: Wunder (G2)
Summer 2021: Odoamne (RGE)
Spring 2022: Odoamne (RGE)
The most awarded top laner from this list is Wunder, with five appearances. He is also the only top laner to appear on an All-Pro Team with two different organizations — G2 Esports and Splyce, in this case.
Summer 2015: Kim “Reignover” Yeu-jin (FNC)
Spring 2016: Kim “Trick” Gang-yun (G2)
Summer 2016: Trick (G2)
Spring 2017: Trick (G2)
Summer 2017: Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen (FNC)
Spring 2018: Andrei “Xerxe” Dragomir (SPY)
Summer 2018: Broxah (FNC)
Spring 2019: Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski (G2)
Summer 2019: Jankos (G2)
Spring 2020: Jankos (G2)
Summer 2020: Zhiqiang “shad0w” Zhao (MAD)
Spring 2021: Jankos (G2)
Summer 2021: Kacper “Inspired” Słoma (RGE)
Spring 2022: Kim “Malrang” Geun-seong (RGE)
The winner here is Jankos, with four appearances — but Trick isn’t far behind him with three. Both were G2 Esports junglers, however, while winning those awards. Neither jungler ever manager to appear on an All-Pro team while playing for different organizations, either.
All-Pro Mid laners
Summer 2015: Fabian “FEBIVEN” Diepstraten (FNC)
Spring 2016: Luka “Perkz” Perković (G2)
Summer 2016: Na “NighT” Gun-woo (GIA)
Spring 2017: Perkz (G2)
Summer 2017: FEBIVEN (H2K)
Spring 2018: Rasmus “Caps” Borregaard Winther (FNC)
Summer 2018: Caps (FNC)
Spring 2019: Caps (G2)
Summer 2019: Caps (G2)
Spring 2020: Perkz (G2)
Summer 2020: Caps (G2)
Spring 2021: Caps (G2)
Summer 2021: Caps (G2)
Spring 2022: Vincent “Vetheo” Berrié (MSF)
Caps appeared in All-Pro teams by far the most out of any mid laners, but his count of seven also makes him the player with the most All-Pro appearances in general. He also managed to achieve this feat across two organizations, Fnatic and G2 Esports.
All-Pro Bot laners
Summer 2015: Martin “Rekkles” Larsson (FNC)
Spring 2016: Pierre “Steeelback” Medjaldi (UOL)
Summer 2016: Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen (G2)
Spring 2017: Zven (G2)
Summer 2017: Rekkles (FNC)
Spring 2018: Rekkles (FNC)
Summer 2018: Upset (S04)
Spring 2019: Kasper “Kobbe” Kobberup (SPY)
Summer 2019: Perkz (G2)
Spring 2020: Rekkles (FNC)
Summer 2020: Patrik “Patrik” Jírů (XL)
Spring 2021: Rekkles (G2)
Summer 2021: Rekkles (G2)
Spring 2022: Upset (FNC)
Just like Caps for the mid lane, Rekkles managed to make the list with both G2 Esports and Fnatic. However, he isn’t the only bot laner to make the All-Pro team with two orgs, as Upset has now done it with both Schalke 04 Esports and Fnatic. Rekkles does hold the record in the bot lane, though, with six appearances. It’s also worth noting that the players on this list still play professionally today.
Summer 2015: Bora “YellOwStaR” Kim (FNC)
Spring 2016: Raymond “kaSing” Tsang (VIT)
Summer 2016: Alfonso “Mithy” Aguirre Rodríguez (G2)
Spring 2017: Lee “IgNar” Dong-geun (MSF)
Summer 2017: Mithy (G2)
Spring 2018: Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov (FNC)
Summer 2018: Hylissang (FNC)
Spring 2019: Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle (G2)
Summer 2019: Mikyx (G2)
Spring 2020: Mikyx (G2)
Summer 2020: Norman “Kaiser” Kaiser (MAD)
Spring 2021: Mikyx (G2)
Summer 2021: Mikyx (G2)
Spring 2022: Hylissang (FNC)
No support in the LEC ever won an All-Pro team award on two different team, but Mikyx is the winner here with five appearances.
LEC all-time All-Pro team
if we take the player who won the most LEC All-Pro awards for each role, here’s what the team would look like.
Top lane: Wunder
Mid lane: Caps
Bot lane: Rekkles
Yes, that is literally just the roster of G2 Esports in 2021.
More All-Pro numbers
While certain players earned All-Pro honors more than others, the same holds true for certain teams. Based on previous information, the result shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, but here are the organizations with the most All-Pro team players across LEC history.
- G2 Esports (31)
- Fnatic (17)
- Rogue (4)
G2 Esports and Fnatic are historically the two most important organizations in European League of Legends, so this tracks. However, in the past year, neither have been as dominant, and it will be interesting to see if newer organizations can challenge them in the long run. After all, no G2 Esports players appeared in the All-Pro team for spring 2022.
