If we take ten dedicated fans of the game and ask them to pick their Top 10, we will undoubtedly receive ten completely different lists of the best LoL players.

With over a decade of competitive play and dozens of players who made a considerable impact, any such list will be debatable.

There is only one position on this list that is impenetrable.

Faker took the crown in 2013 and has ruled as the undisputed superstar of the game since then.

With four world titles in his trophy cabinet, he will remain the GOAT for years to come.

Fortunately for us, the fans, League of Legends is not going anywhere.

And maybe, just maybe, one day Faker will no longer be considered the best League of Legends player of all time.
