My Ten Favorite Moments From All-Star Weekend 2015 #Listmas2015


The League of Legends 2015 Season officially wrapped up today, with no further professional play happening for the rest of the year. To round out the year after Worlds, fan-voted teams from around the world form super teams and compete in various events culminating in a win for either Team Fire, or Team Ice. Team fire was comprised of the NALCS, LCK and LMS regions, with Team Ice represented by the EULCS, LPL and IWC leagues. A four day event, there were plenty of great moments, not only from the pros playing the game, but also from the casters, analyst desk and even the crowd. Just like all LoL streams, the production quality was high and the ideas fueling the event were solid. Watching more standard format games where one region from each team would face off were fun, but the 1v1 tournament and special game modes were the real treat. It’s one thing to play Snowdown Showdown or All-For-One for yourself — it’s a completely different spectacle when the pros do it. It’s that time of year again when #Listmas posts start popping up and I have yet to participate, but this event gave me something to make a list about. So here it is. Ten of my favorite moments from All-Star Weekend 2015, in no particular order:

This one was during the Best of 3 final of the event, which ended in Team Fire’s Victory, whom I was rooting for over the weekend.

Bjergsen evens up the best of three against Doublelift during the 1v1 tournament final, because ADC’s can’t play Assassins! Good Guy Doublelift then played another mid lane champion in the last match and it ended up costing him. Bjergsen still gave DL credit after the win.

This was the craziest thing I saw all weekend. Not only did this happen in the above clip, but Doublelift agreed to another rematch (though he had already won the best of three at that point) and it happened again afterwards. A third rematch went down and Froggen finally avoided using the snowball, so DL managed the legit win.

Simply an amazing 1v3 outplay by Westdoor during one of the regional best of ones.

I forgot to mention, he got a quadra earlier in the same game.

Yeah, Westdoor was a beast at times… here’s a pentakill on Kassadin.

This All-For-One Mirror match game was amazing start to finish. So. Many. Hooks.

Amazing was pretty damn amazing on Lee Sin during this match.

Rekkles looked done in this 1v1, but managed the takedown himself.

This was voted as Big Play of the Year by the fans (myself included). Fenix with an amazing outplay in this clip. I managed to make the correct choices during this event in supporting #TeamFire and voting for #FenixBigPlay!
