The World Championship of the Heroes League in 2018 is over. In this World Championship, the position of the top unit has attracted everyone’s attention. Since entering the group stage, the single hero on tank has gradually disappeared, and the soldier hero has become the mainstream. This makes this version of the list against the line very fierce, and many teams of singles have played well.
Swordsman and Egart were once unavoidable heroes on the road. Later Victor joined the battlefield to give road players more space to play. Let’s review the rankings of the singles in this global finals and see what are the best players on the road.
In his interview during this year’s World Championship, TheShy talked more than once about the lack of a stronger singles player. He did have this confidence and courage, after all, he won this year’s world championship. In the second game of the final against FNC, he was 43 knives ahead of his opponent in 15 minutes, which can be said to be a complete leader. In this global finals, TheShy has 60% of the matches in the first 15 minutes, which shows that his personal ability really leads his opponents, and his online ability ranks first in Shandong trunk position.
In the IG game against the G2 team, his Jess and Yatox had excellent performance, showing an unprecedented style in the group battle, so that those Western audiences who are not familiar with LPL are amazed. Although the audience couldn’t see his signature Revan in this competition, his Jess killed Wunder in the fifth grade and proved himself to be the strongest singles player in the world. At least in the next few months, it is hard for any player to shake the dominance of TheShy. Some players questioned the support capability of TheShy before, but he also played a good match.
Although Wunder was once singled out by TheShy, without Wunder’s performance in the global finals, the G2 team would not be able to reach the semi-final stage. Therefore, we can’t erase Wunder’s previous excellent performance because Wunder was not carry enough in the semi-final. In the battle against RNG, he was Letme ahead of the line and opened up without support from the field. And in the group game against FW, his Camille is relying on brilliant play to get the team right to go out.
Wunder is 24.4% of the team injury, slightly lower than Bwipo and TheShy, but he is mainly responsible for the division tactics of the G2 team, and the core of the team is Perkz. With Atoks, Akari and Carmel, Wunder was able to create tremendous pressure on the sideways to help the team break down all the way. In this world competition, only two teams try to score and push, one is the IG team, the other is the G2 team, and the G2 team still carries out this idea in the elimination match, although the IG team dumb.
In retrospect of all the matches in this World Championship, the game between IG and KT is undoubtedly a top-notch tit-for-tat match, which is more exciting than the Finals. Although it is only the top eight, KT team has also created a lot of trouble for IG team, especially in the upper and middle position constantly exerting pressure. As a veteran who became famous in 2015, Smeb is no longer at his peak. His personal skills have declined a lot. It’s hard for him to gain an advantage against TheShy. But Smeb has a lot of experience. Even in a backward state, he can restrain his opponent’s top players.
Smeb is also the captain of the KT team at present. He shoulders the heavy responsibility of commanding the team. Although he failed to make up for the knife online and get too much economic lead, we can also see that he is more stable than before. In the third game against IG, his Ariana was caught and exploded earlier, but still saved the team by teleporting. However, due to version limitations, Kennan, Lambert and Planck, who are good at the game, are unable to come out. This is also the reason why Smeb failed to fully demonstrate his strength. He could not adapt to the style of the game.
Before the start of this year’s European LCS Spring Tournament, most players and even Western audiences did not know the name. The player who played in two different wildcard districts showed excellent performance. He won the starting position of sOAZ in the knockout tournament and became a new ace in the FNC team, beating Licorice, the strongest single in the North American LCS. If the FNC team hadn’t done too badly in the S-8 Finals, Bwipo’s ranking might have been higher, but he was really suppressed too badly in the second round of the Finals, which is also related to his inaction in the field.
And in most other competitions, Bwipo has a good performance, whether on-line ability or support ability, is not to be underestimated. And he won six singles in the global finals, which is a very good data for a player who first appeared on the big stage. Bwipo still has a lot of room for growth. Bwipo’s last Victor also caused a boom in the Pedestrian Bureau. Victor is a new routine that has only appeared in recent weeks, but Bwipo quickly launched the hero, which is really unexpected.
Kiin is one of the main victims of TOP20 poisoned milk list. The AFs team did poorly in the global finals, but Kiin is the only bright spot of the team. His overall performance is quite good, but also the first to use single Victor player, even if the team loses, he can also play more than 30% of the injury proportion, in this version is very rare. In more than half of the games, Kiin was ahead of his opponents in the first 15 minutes, and he still had a lot of things to show.
But Kiin has no chance to prove himself. Although he is known as the first LCK singles player this year, it is difficult for him to play on the world stage. The AFs team’s middle and lower routes have been blown up in almost every game. Kiin chooses the opposite hero, and it is difficult for him to perform too well in the group battle. But Kiin is younger than TheShy. He has the chance to challenge TheShy’s dominance again in the future. And Kiin has been a very good player in qualifying. He is a stable player. This world competition has also given him a lot of attention.
It has to be said that in this global finals, the top unit is no longer just the pattern of LCK team blindly dominating, European LCS has also emerged a number of emerging singles rookies. The top unit is the most personal technology test position in the heroic league, especially this version of tank heroes is not popular, giving them more opportunities to confront head-on. Apart from Smeb, most of the players on this list are fairly young geniuses. They will definitely be the focus of future competition. Let’s look forward to seeing them again in the next international competition.
