The Game Haus pooled together votes from several members of the League of Legends writing staff before submitting the ballot. The votes turned out like this:
- First Team All-Pro: Licorice, Santorin, Bjergsen, FBI, CoreJJ
- Second Team All-Pro: Impact, Blaber, Jensen, Zven, Vulcan
- Third Team All-Pro: Ssumday, Closer, Nisqy, Johnsun, IgNar
- Coaching Staff: Team Liquid > TSM > Cloud9
- Rookie of the Split: Johnsun > Tactical > Treatz
- Honda MVP: CoreJJ > Bjergsen > Jensen
For the most part, TGH’s ballot included many of the same names as the final results. In fact, Tactical was the only player not included, while Johnsun made the cut. TGH, when compared to the other voters, over-valued Santorin, Impact and FBI, while under-valuing Ssumday, Blaber and Zven. All of the other players matched between TGH’s ballot and the final results.
TGH also matched up on the Honda MVP and Coaching Staff of the Split awards. Team Liquid made huge improvements from their ninth-place finish in Spring Split, while bringing on a brand new Head Coach. CoreJJ stood out in the regular season as far superior to the Support field. His Bard, among other champs, was a force to be reckoned with. TGH had Johnsun as Rookie of the Year, but Tactical was the second choice. Both bot laners had a breakout year.
