[Top 15] LoL Best Carry Players In The World Right Now

[Top 15] LoL Best Carry Player In The World
The whole match is on our back, we need physical theraphy!

It's the end of the year, ladies and gentlemen, and it's time to rank the best player in League of Legends right now. But not just any League of Legends player, but the best carry League of Legends players. These players know how to solo carry an entire match on their backs and show the entire world how amazing they are at playing their specific role. Carry players can be assigned to one of four roles: mid, top, jungle, or ADC.

Support is sometimes used, but we won't go into that right now because not many supports can carry a match on their own. This list is based on the most recent major tournament, the Worlds 2022 Championship, where many players demonstrated their abilities and proved to everyone that they are not to be trifled with. I will not base this list on their Worlds 2022 wins, but rather on how well they have performed in this year's tournaments, not just World's 2022, and how many matches they have successfully carried. Now, onto the list.

15. Huang "Wayward" Ren-Xing

“The top lane is my jam.”

Let's start with the top lane role, and who else comes to mind but Huang "Wayward" Ren-Xing? He is currently a member of a Chinese team called "Top Esports." This player has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to carry an entire match on his back. He first appeared on the professional scene in 2019, and he used to play jungle before switching roles and discovering that he belonged in the top lane. The player also went through several champion changes before settling on Tryndamere as his tournament champion. 

Why that champion? He's one of many champions who can solo carry an entire match and has no problem diving under a turret. That’s the playstyle of this player as well. He loves to dive people under turrets and jump into huge crowds of enemies like Rambo. Throughout his professional career, the player has won numerous matches while leading his team to victory. For his outstanding performance, the player was named a rookie in the LPL 2022 Spring Split and was named to the LPL 2022 Spring All-Pro 3rd team. Which is quite an achievement for any pro player. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LPL Summer 2022 - 2nd place (144,921$).
  • LPL Spring 2022 - 2nd place (151,043$).

14. Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu

“Everyone can make it if they work hard enough.”

When you see this player next up, you know this list is going to be good. Kim "Deft" Hyuk-kyu is a pro-League of Legends player from Korea. After winning Worlds 2022 with his team "DRX," he now plays for "DAMWON Gaming." Unfortunately, he had to switch teams due to some problems with them, but I'm glad he's doing well and has found a new team. One of the more interesting facts about Deft is that he went to the same high school as Faker. Deft began his professional career in 2013 as an ADC.

Ezreal, as many people know him, is one of his more famous champions. He is, however, well-known for his Lucian and Jinx gameplay. He prefers champions who can easily carry the entire match on their own, and he avoids champions who cannot. The way this professional player carries is by hitting skill shots with his champions. During his professional career, the player changed teams several times. During his time on other teams, he was always the one who carried the match and led his team to victory. Many people admire him for his gameplay, and he has taught many people how to play League of Legends. This is understandable given his talent.

Major Tournament Achievements:

  • World 2022 Championship - 1st place (489,500$).
  • Rift Rivals 2019: LCK VS LPL VS LMS VS VCS - 1st place (80,000$).

13. Kang “TheShy” Seung-lok

“I am not shy IRL I swear.”

Next up is another top lane player known as "TheShy" or, to some, by his real name Kang Seung-lok. Despite his nickname, "TheShy," he isn't afraid to show off his strength in League of Legends matches. Because this player has carried so many games on his own, he has lost track of them. He currently plays for "Weibo Gaming." But, if you're wondering how this player knows how to play so many different champions and how good he is at them, here's your answer. He, on the other hand, enjoys ARAM games more than the average person.

In his spare time, the player probably spends more time playing ARAM than ranked matches. I can't blame him; ARAM is a lot of fun. Most of the champions he plays are skill-based, such as Riven and Jayce, but you can also catch him playing Fiora and Aatrox, who can easily carry the match. Because of their high skill ceiling, they are rarely banned and since he mastered them it’s easy for him to carry the match with those champions alone. If you want to learn how to play any of these champions, you've come to the right place. All you have to do is watch him do it to learn everything. When it comes to champions, he's a beast, and most opponents he faces fall to their knees in defeat.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LPL Spring 2019 - 1st place (223,230$).
  • 2018 World Championship - 1st place (2,418,750$).

12. Zhuo “knight” Ding

“I am the knight of the night.” 

I have a lot to say about this player. This is Zhuo Ding, also known as knight by his fans. He is a Chinese mid-lane pro who currently plays for "Top Esports." Let me begin by saying that this player was regarded as one of the best mid-lane players in 2019. Why? That's why you're reading this article. Because he was the best mid-lane carry the game had to offer. Despite not being a jungler, he could easily carry every single lane on his back. 

This player went on to become the server's top rank. He did it several times. If you're wondering which champions this player played for to achieve such feats, look no further. He mostly played champions that can solo carry games and have a lot of roaming potential, like Qiyana, Ekko, and Akali, but he also played Ryze and Irelia. The way that this player carries the match is by roaming and ganking lanes. Most of these champions can easily carry a match if you have the necessary skill. Because you won't be able to carry that match if you don't know how to play them well. It's as simple as that.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LPL Summer 2020 - 1st place (290,267$).
  • Mid Season-Cup 2020 - 1st place (240,000$).

11. Seo “Kanavi” Jin-hyeok

“The jungle is where I reside.”

Let's take a closer look at the jungle role and who we've got here. It's none other than Seo Jin-hyeok, or Kanavi as he's more commonly known. This player is best known for his jungle role, but he's also known for building bizarre items such as "Redemption" on Olaf. That is not a typical item to build on a carry champion, but he does it because no one can stop him. I mean, he always demonstrates that he can still carry the match even after building those bizarre items.Aside from creating bizarre item combinations on Olaf, the player is also known for playing the most difficult champion, Lee Sin.

To do well in the game with the champion, you must know everything about him, and to do so, you must spend years playing and training your reflexes. He mastered the hardest jungler in the game and the reward is that he can carry the match. It’s that simple and it’s also his carry playstyle. This player not only mastered Lee Sin, but he also demonstrated to everyone that even if the champion falls off in the late game, he can easily carry the entire match. The player also began his professional career in early 2019, and he is still playing for a team called "JD Gaming" and carrying multiple games in a row.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LPL Summer 2021 - 1st place (289,842$).
  • LPL Spring 2020 - 1st place (283,185$).

10. Li “Xiaohu” Yuan-Hao

“I conquered two roles.” 

In his lifetime, this beast of a man has mastered two roles: mid and top. Not only that, but by carrying the match, he won two international titles in different roles. How badass is that? In terms of the player, Xiaohu began his professional career in 2014 after joining a team called “Gamtee”. After joining that team and playing a few matches for them, Xiaohu went on to join a team called "RNG," where he is still today, despite joining them in 2015. He's been a member of that team for over 7 years. That is completely insane. And the team captain was correct to keep this player because he can carry any match no matter what.

Most of the champions he plays are powerful and can easily win a match in less than 30 minutes, while others require a high level of skill. Corki is his most well-known carry champion for this player. That little rodent of a champion can easily gank other lanes and aid the jungle, and he's also quite strong right now. LeBlanc, on the other hand, is the most intense and skill-demanding champion that the player plays. The reason behind his pick of champions is so he can help out the jungle and rotate easily to his lane due to the high mobility of the champions. That’s his carry playstyle. Oh, and last year he switched roles from mid to top and for some reason decided to play Lucian in the top lane, which worked out fantastically for him.

Major Tournament Achievements:

  • Mid-Season Invitational 2022 - 1st place (75,000$).
  • LPL Spring 2022 - 1st place (302,087$).

9. Kim “Khan” Dong-ha

“I may be retired but my legacy continues.”

This one is quite special because this player retired from the professional scene in 2021, but his legacy lives on and many people still talk about him. His name is Kim Dong-ha, but many of his fans call him Khan. He used to play for a team called DAMWON Gaming when he was active, and he technically still does because he is an active streamer for the team. He was their main top laner who carried matches. His "Khan" nickname is a combination of "Korea Hanlabong" and Gengis Khan. As Genghis Khan was a conqueror, so was this incredible player in the top lane. 

With his champions, he used to conquer anyone who stood in his way. Fiora and Jayce were two champions with whom he used to excel. When he chose either of those, the opponent knew the game was over, or at the very least that the top was about to fall. Fiora is a great duelist and excels at 1v1 battles which this player uses to his advantage to carry a match and such is his playstyle. The guy used to flame a lot, so to counter that, he ripped the "Enter" key off his keyboard. As a result, he was unable to send any messages. In addition, during an interview, one of his teeth fell out, making him even more famous. He's a fantastic player in general, and he still streams to this day.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCK Summer 2021 - 1st place (172,575$).
  • LCK Spring 2021 - 1st place (178,412$).

8. Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon

“Everything’s gonna be alright.”

The next player on this list is a Korean professional player who is currently an active mid-lane player for Gen.G Esports. Jeong "Chovy" Ji-hoon is his given name. He got his nickname from anchovies, which I find amusing. Regardless, it's a cool nickname. He did, however, have a different nickname, which was simply "ji hun," which was derived from his surname, as you may have guessed. As a mid-lane player, he has extensive knowledge of the game and is known for amassing massive minion advantages over his opponents.

Galio, Cassiopeia, and occasionally Zoe are the champions he uses to dominate the lane. As you can see, all of these champions excel at one thing: carrying the match due to their crowd control possibilities. That’s also this player’s carry playstyle to stun the enemy so that his team wins the team fight.  Because that's exactly his point. This player is only interested in winning and leading his team to victory. In January 2019, this player achieved a 100 KD/A in a professional league against SKT T1. That, in and of itself, is an accomplishment to be proud of.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCK Summer 2022 - 1st place (147,623$).
  • LCK Spring 2022 - 2nd place (81, 829$).

7. Heo “ShowMaker” Su

“I love putting on a show.” 

Let's continue the list with ShowMaker, also known as Heo Su, a mid-lane player. He's been dubbed "ShowMaker" for reasons other than looks. Because every time this player enters the ring, he puts on a show for all to see. The player began his career with DAMWON Gaming in 2017, and he is still a member of the same team today. Which surprised me because every player eventually switched teams, but he didn't. Good for him. Also Sunmi is a celebrity k-pop fan who has modeled in his jersey.

That's pretty neat. This guy knows how to carry a match because he plays Katarina and Kassadin. Both of those champions are so good at what they do that they can carry a match on their own. However, if he is unable to choose those champions because they have been countered, this player always has a backup plan. Twisted Fate or Akali are his backup plans. Both champions are strong in their own right. Because of those champions, this player has the fastest 1000 kills in the LCK. This player’s carry playstyle is all about farming and getting kills until late game as most of the champions he plays are for the late game situations. That’s his carry playstyle. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCK Summer 2021 - 1st place (172,575$).
  • LCK Spring 2021 - 1st place (178,412$).

6. Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg 

“Welcome to the arena.”

Not Olaf or Tryndamere, but the true Viking of League of Legends. This gentleman's name is S∅ren Bjerg, or as many people know him, Bjergsen. Even saying his name makes him sound like a Viking. Bjergsen entered the League of Legends professional scene in 2013 and played his first professional match with the team "Copenhagen Wolves." Unfortunately, he only stayed with the team for three weeks before Riot Games made the tournaments age-restricted. He rejoined the team after leveling up or reaching the age of 17 to continue his professional career. Since then, he has been on and off numerous teams before landing a contract with "Team Liquid" in North America.

He primarily plays Zed, Ahri, Azir, Syndra, and sometimes Zilean if his team requires it. He is not afraid to take a support to the mid-lane and dominate the game. He will also lead the team to victory. Since this player is very versatile when it comes to champion picks he has a ton of different carry play styles that suit him the best in that current situation. This player has also won many first-place tournaments in his professional career and shows no signs of slowing down. Not surprisingly, as a mid-lane player, the champion he hates playing the most against is Shaco. If he sees a Shaco during the match, he will make it his life's mission to make that player's life a living hell.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCS Lock-In 2022 - 1st place (150,000$).
  • LCS Summer 2020 - 1st place (100,000$).

5. Rasmus “caPs” Borregaard Winther

“Welcome to the new age.”

Rasmus Winther, another Viking who has entered the professional scene, is known as "caPs" or "Baby Faker" by many fans because he is so good at the game. Not only that, but he has another nickname given to him by the fans, which is "Craps" when he plays poorly and "Claps" when he plays exceptionally well. Another odd fact that contributed to his popularity was that he shaved his head bald. For whatever reason, many fans found this amusing and began following the guy. That's probably what it takes to be popular these days. Because he's a good player, he's been to almost every single tournament in the game. He currently plays for G2 Esports, but he began his career in 2015 with "Enigma Esports."

Being a mid-laner isn't easy, even though he makes it seem like that. Most of his champions revolve around controlling large crowds, so he enjoys playing Orianna, Ryze, and occasionally, if he feels like one-shotting people, Zoe. Orianna and Ryze are both champions with the ability to carry a single match, as he demonstrated. Because of their crowd control, these champions can easily carry a match and that’s what his carry playstyle rolls with. They also deal a lot of damage once you have some items on them. The player shows no signs of slowing down, as evidenced by winning the majority of tournaments this year in 2022.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LEC Spring 2022 - 1st place (86,596$).
  • LEC Summer 2020 - 1st place (94,723$).

4. Han “Peanut” Wang-ho

“I am the king of the jungle.”

This player is currently the jungler for Gen.G Esports, a professional League of Legends team. Peanut is his nickname, which could be because he enjoys eating peanuts. Han Wang-ho is his real name, and he is from Korea. Peanut began his professional League of Legends career in 2014 with the team "NaJin e-mFire." He also worked as a professional jungler for SKT T1 Telecom during his professional career. Which is probably the most well-known team on the planet, thanks to a single player, but we'll get to him later. Peanut enjoys playing many different junglers, but his favorites are Nidalee, Olaf, Elise, and Sejuani. 

They can all carry the match on their own and deal a massive amount of damage. All of these champions excel at carrying the game, ganking lanes, and accomplishing objectives. The player focuses on ganking lanes and helping out his teammates so that he can carry the match along with the team. That’s his carry playstyle and if you are a jungler with similar champions you should follow him. You will lose the match if you do not do objectives or gank lanes, so it is critical to play those champions. In addition, during the LCK 2018 Spring Season, the player went 11-0-6 against SKT T1 Telecom. That's insane.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCK Summer 2022 - 1st place (147,623$).
  • LCK Spring 2022 - 2nd place (81,829$).

3. Martin “Rekkles” Larson

“The Vikings have come.” 

The Vikings appear to have retired from conquering the world in favor of conquering the League of Legends professional scene. Martin Larson, aka Rekkles, is a well-known player who has had his ups and downs. But mostly ups in his professional career. He switched teams several times, but his popularity skyrocketed when he joined Fnatic. His professional career began in 2012 with a team called "Playing Ducks," but he is now an ADC for a team called "Karmine Corp." Rekkles eats cereal before every major game he plays.

This is quite interesting, and perhaps we should all start doing it so that we, too, can become professionals. Vayne and Kennen are two of his most popular champions in the bot lane. Yes, Rekkles plays Kennen in the bot lane and leads his team to victory. Why? Well, because Kennen has damage, crowd control, and range, so what's stopping him from being played in that role even though he's primarily a top-lane champion? However, Rekkles can also be seen as Tristana, Sivir, and, on occasion, Jhin. Which are all great champions to carry a match and Rekkles does indeed carry the match. The carry playstyle that this player rolls with is all about counter-picking the enemy champion or picking the right champion for the right situation. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LEC Summer 2020 - 2nd place (59,202$).
  • EU LCS Summer 2018 - 1st place (92,517$).

2. Song “Rookie” Eui-jin

“I ain’t a rookie, I'm a pro!”

Song "Rookie" Eul-jin is the list's second-best player who can carry a match. He is a Korean professional player who currently plays for the team "Victory Five" as a mid-laner. When it comes to his carry playstyle, the player enjoys playing AP champions and one-shotting opponents. This is demonstrated by his gameplay and his champion pool. LeBlanc, Lissandra, Orianna, and Syndra are among those champions. All of these champions can one-shot or stun people in some way. That is his carry playstyle. Because of his massive champion pool and incredible mechanics, the player is also known as "Faker Junior."

He also has lightning-fast reflexes. The player also became only the second person in LPL history to reach 2,500 kills. He accomplished this feat with LeBlanc, and it was against "ThunderTalk Gaming." Not only that, but Rookie understands and speaks Chinese fluently. What makes that so incredible? He is, after all, one of the best Korean professional players who speaks Chinese fluently. So he not only had the time to become one of the best carry players in League of Legends, but he also took the time to learn and speak Chinese fluently. That was a chad move.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LPL Spring 2019 - 1st place (223,230$).
  • 2018 World Championship - 1st place (2,418,750$).

1. Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok

“I am the demon on the rift.”

And who better to carry a match than Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok himself? He is also responsible for the team T1's popularity. Of course, because he is the most popular and famous player, the team he is on will be popular as well. Faker made his debut in 2013 with the same team, T1. He never changed teams, and this will be his ninth year on the professional scene with T1. Faker has also appeared in multiple Riot Games music videos and promotional artwork for major tournaments. Riot Games' tournament face is Faker. Funny enough his favorite champion is Yasuo. Damn who would have thought. 

Faker also has the most champions of any professional player in League of Legends history, but some of his most popular are Zed, Ryze, LeBlanc, Azir, and Orianna. Faker carries the match by assisting his jungler or ganking lanes. Not only that, but his mechanical skills and reflexes aren't on par with anyone else's, and they carry the match for him. Faker also has the most tournament wins and is known for owning the most World Championship belts. I mean, high skill equals high rewards, right? If you want to learn how to play League of Legends on a professional level, look up to Faker because he will teach you a lot just by watching.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCK Spring 2022 - 1st place (163,659$).
  • 2022 World Championship - 2nd place (333,750$).
