8 Best League of Legends Players of 2022 Competitions So Far

 As one of the most popular esports games of all time, there's no shortage of professional League of Legends players. As of 2022, the player pool comfortably exceeds 7,000. Team rosters are changing all the time, with new talent constantly arriving on the scene. However, despite constant shakeups, a handful of players continue to impress. Below, we throw a spotlight on 8 of the best pro-level League of Legends players active in 2022. 

8. Mun "Oner" Hyeon-jun 

Oner has been a staple member of the T1 team since 2020. This legendary jungler joined top-tier esports with relatively little experience. Nonetheless, he quickly emerged as one of the premier players in the LCK. What makes Oner so successful? He's one of the more versatile players out there, demonstrating proficiency with a huge slate of champions. T1 doesn't seem keen on losing him anytime soon. Back in June, his contract was extended, meaning Oner will remain a T1 fixture until at least 2024. 

7. Zhuo "knight" Ding 

Currently a mainstay of Top Esports, knight is no stranger to pro-level championships. For several years, this Chinese player has been considered one of the finest mid laners around. When it comes to champions like Vex, Ryze, and Ahri, his technical ability is second to none. What's more, his kill count should strike fear into the hearts of any rival player. 

6. Hung "Karsa" Hao-Hsuan 

Karsa's been playing professionally for the better part of a decade. However, this Taiwanese pro came into his own back in 2017 when he jumped ship to RNG. After finishing up a two-year contract there, he jumped ship to Top Esports, before finally settling with Victory Five in late 2021. During his time with Victory Five, Karsa has carved out a niche as one of the best junglers in League of Legends. In 2022, he set a new jungler record for the most kills in a single LoL Pro League game. 

5. Kim "Malrang" Geun-seong 

He might be young, but don't let the fresh face fool you. Kim "Malrang" Geun-seong is one of the fiercest League of Legends professionals of the 2022 season. Previously part of the DWG KIA roster, Malrang has since made the jump to Rogue. Many fans were quick to discount Malrang's abilities, seeing him as a second-rate replacement. However, he quickly proved himself to be a more than worthy successor to Kacper "Inspired" Sloma. 

4. Song "Rookie" Eui-jin 

Victory Five are quickly emerging as LPL frontrunners. This is largely down to a spate of recent signings. One of Victory Five's best moves was convincing Song "Rookie" Eui-jin to make the switch from Invictus Gaming. Rookie might not yet have had the chance to showcase his skills on the world stage, but his talents as a mid laner can't be denied. Expect big things from this youngster in the years ahead. 

3. Kim "Canyon" Geon-bu 

Canyon is one of the longest-serving members of DWG KIA. He's also one of the most decorated, with a stack of MVP awards and records to his name. He's fairly young, but he's one of South Korea's leading lights. During the LCK 2022 Spring, he broke yet another record, securing the most points in a single split. 

2. Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok 

Faker's been playing LoL professionally for almost a decade. Many of his contemporaries have since retired or moved into coaching, but Faker continues to put in solid performances, year after year. What makes this veteran such a standout? Well for starters, he's incredibly versatile. This mid laner isn't scared of mixing it up. As of March 2022, Faker has deployed no less than 72 champions in tournament fixtures. Want to find out which champion Faker is currently putting to use?

1. Ryu "Keria" Min-seok 

T1 isn't exactly short of top-tier talent, but some players stand out more than others. Ryu "Keria" Min-seok is a fairly new arrival to the team, having made his debut back in 2020. Since then, he's become an indispensable member of the team, performing consistently at every tournament. In 2022, he set a new record for the most assists in a single LCK split. In Spring 2022, he also pocketed an LCK MVP award.
