Hello, summoners and welcome to this article. And today we'll be doing something a little different but don't worry, it'll still be just as fun and entertaining. We'll be taking a look at ten of the most iconic moments in League of Legends eSports history.
Now keep in mind of these 10 iconic moments are not placed in order with the exception of our number one.
Starting the list off at number 10 we have the MadLife.
For players who've been around for a while, you're probably all aware of the first hard carry support player Madlife.
He was the most iconic Thresh and Blitzcrank player of all time and was famously known for reading his enemies like an open book.
Nowadays, whenever you predicted enemies dash or blink with your hook, then we jump out of our chair and scream MADLIFE!
Coming in at number nine, we have the insec.
whenever you hear the name insect the first thing that pops into your head is Lee sin. Insec is widely known as the most iconic Lee sin player of all time. And his display of mechanical skill back in season two shows exactly why. Although ward hopping behind your enemy and kicking them into your team isn't as impressive today, insect was the first person to pull this off at an international event. The whole world was shocked by his creative usage of wart hops, and this innovative move is now as the Insect.
In number eight we have the SOAZ.
This is the most modern iconic play on our list, and it involves toying with the enemy and teleporting out to safety while hiding in a brush. Although many players have done this in the past, soaz has managed to pull this off the most times out of any other players.
Next up in number 7 we have the MISAYA.
For all the newer players Misaya was one of the best Chinese mid laners in the world back in Season 2. he was known. For his incredible mechanics and was the best TF player in China. The Misaya is a move named after him when he pulled off one of the most iconic plays of all time by porting straight into the enemy team and then using Zhonya's to bait out all his opponents cooldowns.
At number six, we have the yellow star.
Although most of the iconic moments in Legue of legends are insane outplays or innovative strategies, we have one that's a bit on the bronze side of things. Back when his play was made Yellowstar was known as one of the best supports in all of Europe. However, his Thresh mechanics fell just a little behind Madlife's. Okay, that was a lie, they fell a lot behind and I mean a lot.
Coming in at number five, we have the REGINALD. For those of you who don't know TSM zoner Reginald used to be the mid laner for their League of Legends team before Bjergsen took over. Pulling a yellow cart is quite easy to do as Twisted Fate, but it appears that Reggie had a thing for blue cards.
Next up at number four, we have the Captain Jack. Despite it's like a success, it's undeniable that Captain Jack was inseparably mechanically gifted at his Prime.
In this clip, he shows us one of the best cleanses that we have ever seen in League of Legend's history. When season 9, whenever you cleanse or qss a CC skill totally we call it the Captain Jack.
At number three, we have the Fanatic brush.
back in the early days of. League of Legends, fanatic was famously known for choosing the enemy team by five man hiding in a brush. Even to this day the fanatic death brush has been passed down from generation to generation and is one of the most iconic moments in League of legends. As a bonus it also gave birth to another iconic moment, the double lift facecheck.
And number two, we have the XPEKE.
Everyone has heard of the xPeke back door is pretty self-explanatory. During the 2013 tournament, Fnatic had just lost a pretty bad team fight against SK.
Just when we thought the game was over, xPeke manages to pull off the most iconic back door of all time. Sorry, Ocelot.
Before you into our final clip, there's. One honorable mention that I'd like to add, you might remember this from the of the Cody Sun.
And finally, at number one we have our most iconic play of all time which is the faker. Even to this day the faker reverse reuse ed outplay is the best outplay we've ever seen in League Of Legends. During Faker's rookie year, he made a statement to the entire world by pulling off the impossible and solidifying his stand-up as the greatest league player of all time.
