Academy Standouts: 2020 Summer Week 2

Academy Standouts highlights the players who performed best in the most recent week of NA Academy play. I’ll discuss three of the most noteworthy players, then list some of the other strong performers below.

If you want to track your favourite team’s Academy performance throughout each split, you can also check out the Academy stats pages, starting with 2020 Spring regular season player stats and team stats.

Yusui, Mid, Team Liquid

TL Yusui 2020 Split 1.pngAs I said about Triple last week, there’s an opening for “best Mid in Academy” right now, and Yusui is another leading candidate. He asserted himself this week quite effectively with a pair of strong showings featuring very different play styles.

Academy All Stars: 2020 Spring

I’ve been watching Academy closely all split, and highlighting the standout performers each week. Now that the regular season has wrapped, it’s time to assess the entire nine weeks of work and honour the best player at each position.

NOTE: I’m unable to report full-split stats for these players due to ongoing issues with Riot’s match history service, but you can see the stats for weeks 1 through 8 here.

Scroll to the end for the TL;DR of 1st-team and 2nd-team selections.

5 Academy Standouts Appearances

As I wrote in the week 9 Academy Standouts: Damonte is still the biggest star of DIG Academy, but if you want to see the foundations Damonte is standing on, keep your eyes on the top lane.
