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

LoL Best Carry Players In The World Right Now
Everybody wishes to be these people trust me.

The Worlds 2021 for League of Legends just ended and what better way than to summarize than to rank the best players who showed off this tournament. It was really hard for me to summarize the players and rank them as most of them were good and showed off their skills during the tournament. It was really exciting and fun watching the Worlds 2021 especially if you were making bets with your homies.

Also, a quick side note is that these players are ranked in my opinion. If by any chance you see your favorite player in the wrong spot please don’t come at me. Now that I have protected myself let’s start this list off, shall we? Some of these players might have not played in the Worlds 2021 but they still deserved to be mentioned!

15. Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk 

This guy hits skill shots like he's using a ruler :D. 

Park Jae-hyuk or as more people know him as Ruler is a South Korean ADC player. He first off started his career as a professional mid laner but later throughout his career he changed roles and now he’s a top-tier marksman.

Ruler excels at team fighting and that’s his catch. You’ll always find him in a situation where he’s helping out his team with his dear life. This guy will not miss a single-team fight. He’s not only great at team fights but he excels at poking the enemy during the laning phase. Any chance he gets to even do 50 damage to the enemy he will take it.

This guy does not mess around when it comes to laning. The enemy team better pack a bag of health potions because they’ll sure need it. Some interesting facts about Ruler are that he reached 1000 kills in LCK on April 1, 2020, and he’s the 11th player to reach that milestone! Another interesting fact about Ruler is that he was known as Bung before and played for a team called Stardust today he plays for Gen.G Esports. 

How badass is this player exactly? - Well, let me tell you. He doesn’t have the best champion because he’s great at every single one of them as almost everyone on this list. But some champions that he excels at and he’s good at are such as Kai’sa, Miss Fortune, and Ezreal. When Ruler picks up Kai’sa he’s winning 100% of the time and getting himself a penta kill. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Ruler achieved the number two spot with his team Gen.G Esports this year in the LCK Spring 2021 Tournament earning himself and his team 89,206$.

14. Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon

Choky Choky Choky!!

Here we have another South Korean player called Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon. He made his name really quickly as the next South Korean mid laner. His playstyle was aggressive yet calculated for a rookie which made him stand out. He’s even deadlier when his focus shifted from getting solo kills to team fights.

He’s not someone to let out your sights and should always look out where he might attack from next. Even if he's doing the worst he’s still one of the deadliest mid laners out there as he has shown that time and time again.

He became the first professional player to achieve a 100 KDA in a professional league in January 2019 after winning against SKT T1. There’s an ongoing meme with Chovy with the casters when he plays poorly they call him “Choky”.  He’s currently playing as a mid laner for a team called Hanwha Life Esports. 

How badass is this player? - Not only did he show his sharp razor skills and rose up to fame quickly but he managed to maintain it for years. Some of his main champions that he dominates the summoner's rift are Cassiopeia, Zoe, and Galio. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

He achieved third place in the LCK Spring 2021 Tournament earning 44,603$. 

Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon highlights: 


13. Hung “Karsa” Hau-Hsuan

Karsa is on the scene!

Hung Hau-Hsuan or known as "Karsa" in the League of Legends community is an underrated player who has been flying under the radar for quite some time. Karsa is a top-tier jungler player who always sets up his team for victory.

He switched a lot of teams but he started his career in 2014 in a team called “Machi 17” later joined “Flash Wolves” in 2015, in 2017 he joined “RNG” and now he’s stationed in “Top Esports” from 2019 to present.

His team's roster has been a roller coaster but I’m happy he finally found a team that he’s happy with. Some interesting facts about Karsa are that he’s born in Taiwan and he’s only 24 years old. He went to the same school as Maple and SwordArt, two other great League of Legends players. 

How badass is this player? - Let me tell you his best champion is Lee Sin and the crazy stuff he can do is just superb. He’s insane at our favorite peanut head-shaped champion. If Lee Sin is banned, the next champion you’ll find him dominating the rift is with Kindred!

Major Tournament Achievements: 

He got first place in 2020 with his team “Top Esports” in the LPL Summer 2020 Tournament earning himself and his dear team 290,267$. 

Hung “Karsa” Hau-Hsuan highlights:

This player sadly doesn’t have a Twitter account but you can find him on here! 


12. Luka “PerkZ” Perković 

The Balcan God!

Luka Perković also known by his nickname PerkZ is a famous League of Legends professional player that was born and raised in Croatia. He has had a spontaneous rise to fame and the professional scene. He made his debut in the 2016 EU LCS and really quickly established his role as the daddy of mid-lane.

His razor-sharp reflexes and mechanics made him stand out in the rising crowd of people. Then unexpectedly he role-swapped. Yes, he swapped to the ADC role and that’s where he’s stationed now and currently playing in “Cloud9”. Interesting facts about PerkZ is that he was featured in Riot’s music video “RISE - Worlds 2018” as a side character. PerkZ also holds the record for most EU LCS/LEC wins at 8. 

How badass is this player? - Well, if you didn’t already notice this guy switched roles and still maintained his title as the razor-sharp player. Some of the champions you can catch him playing the most are Lucian, Xayah, and Kai’sa but when he was playing mid you could catch him playing: Yasuo and Syndra. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

He achieved first place this year in the LCS Spring 2021 Tournament earning himself and his team Cloud9 100,000$. 

Luka “PerkZ” Perković highlights: 


11. Kim “Doinb” Tae-sang

Doinb the mid-lane prodigy!

Seems like most of the best mid laners come from South Korea as our next professional player Kim “Doinb” Tae-sang comes straight from South Korea. Doinb does not mess around but most of the western players didn’t recognize his talent until recently.

He has a huge champion pool so it’s hard to force him into a bad match-up and his mechanics are on point but sadly he lacks the clutch factor something that most professional players have. The lowest placement he received during his professional career was in third place.

This guy will either place second or first, there’s nothing below third exists for this guy. An interesting fact about Doinb is that he’s the 5th player to achieve 2000 kills in the LPL. He’s currently playing for a team called FunPlus Phoenix.

How badass is this player? - He has some weird picks for the mid-lane and that’s why it’s hard for people to counter-pick him or force him into a bad match-up. Some of the champions that he plays are Kled, Nautilus, Ryze, Viktor, and Pantheon. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

He achieved second place this year in the LPL Summer 2021 Tournament earning himself and his team FunPlus Phoenix 154,841$. 

Kim “Doinb” Tae-sang highlights:


10. Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao

This guy will shoot you down like a real uzi!

Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao is sadly a retired League of Legends Chinese professional player but his legendary plays will always be remembered. The reason he’s at number ten is that he’s retired and we don’t know how he will do today.

He was widely recognized as the best ADC player in the world but someone else has taken that spot now. The most impressive thing about reaching his legendary status is that he was dealing with wrist and shoulder issues. He even went on to play Worlds 2017 just after getting back from the hospital because of his pain.

Sadly he retired in May of 2020 and the world was devastated to learn that this legend has left the professional scene. Some interesting facts about him are that he was the first LPL player to reach 1,500 kills and he was also called Puppy by many Chinese fans due to his young age. He never left his team and he was loyal to one team only named “Royal Never Give Up”. 

How badass is this player? - Uzi had issues with his shoulder and wrist but yet he continued to play without complaining. His team even created a strategy named “Puppy strategy” after him. Where they would solely rely on him and his skill to carry the game and carry the whole match he would. Some of the champions he’d carry the whole match with are Vayne, Lucian, Kai’sa, Xayah, and Ezreal.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

He achieved first place in the LPL Summer 2018 along with his team “Royal Never Give Up” earning a whopping 219,458$. 

Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao highlights:


9. Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng 

Best wide known streamer out there! 

 Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng started his career as a mechanical god playing the ADC role. His plays were so insane that the enemy team that he was facing would have to think twice before going into a fight with this monster.

Doublelift made his name as the mechanical god but like any other god, he was lacking in strategy and quick decision making which would eventually lead him to a demise that he didn’t deserve. But even after that his legendary plays are still remembered to this day.

But like all legends, he eventually retired from the professional scene of League of Legends and he’s now a full-time twitch streamer and YouTuber mainly focusing on having fun in the game. An interesting fact about Yiliang Peng is that his nickname Doublelift comes from a magic trick. “Double Lift” is the name of the basic sleight of hand card trick. Doublelift also holds the record for the most LCS titles won! That’s an achievement on its own! 

How badass is this player? - Doublelift has won 9 major tournaments at first place and only once in second place. Talk about achieving something worthwhile in your life. Some of the famous champions that he played to achieve those wins are Lucian, Vayne, and Caitlynn. 

Major Tournament Achievements:

He won first place at the LCS 2020 Summer Tournament playing with TSM and scoring himself a quick 100,000$ in his pocket. 

Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng highlights: 


8. Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek 

I say L you say 9. L9!

Oskar Boderek or better known by his alias “Selfmade” is a player coming straight from the deep roads of Poland. Already having a rough start by being born in Poland and as his nickname suggests he made himself the professional player he is today. He went through 3 different teams until finally stationing himself as a jungler in “Team Vitality” where he is today.

He also used to jungle for Fnatic but sadly he departed with that team for reasons we shall not mention today. Selfmade is a fantastic jungler, a quick thinker, and a playmaker. Some of the things he can pull off today just amaze me at which skill level this guy can play.

An interesting fact about Selfmade is that he was in the infamous L9 club which was known for boosting and toxicity. Thankfully people from that club departed and reformed seeking their fortune elsewhere. Selfmade saw his fortune in the professional League of Legends scene and that’s where he went as for others from that club well that’s a story for another day! 

How badass is this player? -  Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek did something many League of Legends players can’t do and that’s reform into a better mentally stable player. He still has an outburst of rage but ehhh that’s nothing compared to what he was before. Some of the champions that he dominates the professional scene with are Nidalee, Kha'zix our favorite grasshopper, and the spider lady Elise. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek won second place in the LEC Summer 2020 Tournament playing for Fnatic and securing that quick bag of 60,000$

Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek highlights: 


7.  Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu 

One-man army!

Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu is a South Korean one-man army professional player. This player had one weakness only and that was getting picked off late in the game far too easily. Throughout his career, he took that weakness and threw it out the window. He reformatted himself and saw what mistakes he was making so he didn't do them again.

He formed himself into the one-man army we know today and a player with an insatiable hunger for bloodlust. Sadly one downside he never fixed and probably will never fix is that he will always try to make the game about himself forcing his team into a hard position where they can’t carry on their own anymore.

Interesting facts about Deft is that he attended the same school as Faker, the only player to reach 1000 kills in two regions and he played alongside pawN in four different teams. Today Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu can be seen playing for the team called “Hanwha Life Esports. 

How badass is this player? - Deft already made a name for himself thanks to the great skill that he showed while playing professional League of Legends. Some of the champions that helped him reach that goal are Ezreal, Lucian, and our very dear lovely Jinx. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu achieved first place in the Rift Rivals 2019: LCK vs  LPL vs LMS vs VCS while being on the team called “Kingzone DragonX” earning himself and his team 80,000$ in shekels. 

Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu highlights: 

Unfortunately Deft does not have a Twitter account so I’ll link the Twitter account of the team he’s currently playing on https://mobile.twitter.com/HLEofficial

6. Lee “Tarzan” Seung-yong

King of the jungle! The mighty jungle the lion sleeps tonight.

Lee “Tarzan” Seung-yong is a complete phenomenon of a player. He entered the professional stage of League of Legends as a complete rookie but quickly enough he made a name for himself that sends shivers through the spine when his name is said.

As the name suggests Tarzan is a jungler. Tarzan quickly showed his skills with his aggressive ganks and playstyle and the way he could affect team fights like nobody else but his specialty is tracking the enemy jungler and what’s really amazing about this is that he’s always at the right spot at the right time.

He is widely praised for his game sense and game knowledge that none can come close to even today. He also has a wide range of champions he plays so it’s hard to counter-pick him and most of the time you’ll find yourself counter-picked instead. An interesting fact about Tarzan is that he reached rank 1 in season 8 in the Korean region. 

How badass is this player? - Tarzan from the beginning of the game will always have an eye out for you. He can sniff you out like no other player can. He’s a master when it comes to tracking you down in the jungle, you won’t escape him and you can’t escape him. His champion pool is wide but he’s known for his Lee Sin, Graves. Gragas and Taliyah. 

Major Tournoiement Achievements: 

Lee “Tarzan” Seung-yong reached second place in the LCK Summer 2019 Tournament playing on a team called “Griffin” earning a whopping total 49,724$. 

Lee “Tarzan” Seung-yong highlights: 


5. Martin “Rekkles” Larson

Best chin in the whole professional scene!

This absolute chad of a man named Martin “Rekkles” Larson was born in Sweden where he spent most of his life perfecting his craft as an ADC mastermind. For the longest time, Rekkles played for the team called “Fnatic” but later he switched to the team G2 in November of 2020. Sadly when he departed from “Fnatic” it was a sad day for all of us but the League of Legends community was happy nonetheless for this legend.

Rekkles idolizes Deft as a player and has huge respect for him as an ADC connoisseur. An interesting fact about Rekkles is that he holds the world record for the fewest deaths in the entire LCS split only reaching 27 deaths in 28 games. I wish everyone in League of Legends died as much as this guy. The world would be a better place trust me. 

How badass is this player? - Rekkles has won the hearts of many League of Legends players and for that reason, he holds the title of the best ADC player in their eyes. Rekkles has been seen playing a lot of different champions on the rift but some of his most popular are Vayne, Tristana, and Jhin. Sometimes if he’s feeling a bit spicy he will pick Kennen as an ADC. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Rekkles achieved first place in the EU LCS Summer 2018 Tournament playing for the team Fnatic where he earned 92,960$. 

Martin “Rekkles” Larson highlights: 


4. Rasmus “Caps” Borregaard

Comes from a family of professionals!

Rasmus “Caps” Borregaard is another known “Fnatic” player who switched to “G2” but he was the first one to make the switch then Rekkles soon followed. His skill was unmatched in the European professional scene as Caps was known to outplay and out-skill his opponents. Caps managed to kill the best mid laners Europe had to offer and stomp them into the ground.

Caps is also known for having a lot of pocket picks if his main champions get banned or counter-picked so good luck to the enemy team who’s trying to outsmart this guy. Interesting facts about Caps are that he is the brother of the DotA2 professional player Ryze.

Seems like professional gaming runs in their blood. He is often named “Baby-Faker” due to his young age and play-making potential and he’s the first European to win back-to-back MVP awards on two different teams! 

How badass is this player? - Caps is known for his playstyle and the outplay potential he can pull off against his opponents knowing damn well nobody can reach the skill level he did! Some of the champions we can see Caps playing are Azir, Aurelion Sol, Zoe, Ryze, and Syndra! 

Major Tournament Achievements:

He won first place in the LEC Summer 2020 Tournament playing for G2 and earning 94,724$ 

Rasmus “Caps” Borregaard highlights:


3. Heo “ShowMaker” Su 

This lord puts on the best show.

Heo “ShowMaker” Su was born and raised in South Korea and like many South Koreans this guy can put on a show for the community. When this guy is on stage the crowd goes nuts.  The reason he decided on the nickname “ShowMaker” is that he wanted to put on a great show and let me tell you does he deliver on that promise.

Showmaker plays in a team called “DAMWON Gaming” and per my knowledge, he hasn’t switched teams since he established his professional career. Some interesting facts about ShowMaker are that he reached 1000 kills in the LCK and he’s the fastest player to reach that goal and this guy got a K-pop star modeling herself in his jersey and wearing it like a dress.

How badass is this player? - ShowMaker managed to achieve the fastest 1000 kills in the LCK than any other player and nobody has even come close to that. Some of the mid-lane champions this guy plays are Katarina, Kassadin, Syndra, and LeBlanc. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

He achieved first place in the LCK Summer 2021 Tournament playing in his team “DAMWON Gaming” earning a total of 172,576$

Heo “ShowMaker” Su highlights: 

This professional player sadly does not have a Twitter account instead I’ll link the team he plays in https://twitter.com/DWGKIA

2. Park “Viper” Do-hyeon

Worlds 2021 Winner!

Park “Viper” Do-hyeon is an award-winning professional League of Legends player as of recently he has won The Worlds 2021 Tournament. Viper is an ADC mastermind. Not even Rekkles himself can come close to this guy.

He’s widely respected as an ADC and as a professional player. Viper showed his true colors this time and he doesn’t plan on stopping as he will continue to grow and expand his game knowledge and skill.

Interesting facts about Viper is that he played in the team called “Griffin'' where he was known to pick unusual mages as an ADC and those champions are Viktor and Taliyah and that he is the second player after “imp” to score a penta kill during the LCK and Worlds.

How badass is this player? - He won Worlds 2021. Do I have to say anything else? Like this guy cemented himself in the history books. He is known to play champions such as Aphelios, Jhin, and Kai’sa. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Park “Viper” Do-hyeon won Worlds 2021 with his team “EDward Gaming” earning a total of 489,500$. 

Park “Viper” Do-hyeon highlights: 

Unfortunately, he’s another professional player that does not have a Twitter account so instead, I’ll link the team he plays in https://twitter.com/EDG_Edward?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7C...

1. Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok 

Unkillable Demon King!

At our number one spot for the best player in League of Legends and that dominates the summoners rift is none other than the legend himself Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok!!! Do I even have to continue? He is the fan-favorite of all regions. Everyone knows his name and everyone adores him. Everyone alive wishes to be him even your grandma wants to be Faker.

Faker is the most respected and feared player there is. He has won countless tournaments back to back not dropping below first place (sometimes he does but we don’t talk about that), he was mentioned in countless Riot Games music videos, he is the god of mid-lane. Yes, he did not win the Worlds 2021 but he did win the heart of many League of Legends players.

Throughout my whole existence, I don’t think Faker ever switched teams; he stayed in the same team for years and that team is none other than the SKT T1. An interesting fact about Faker is that he brushed his teeth with shower gel once because there was no toothpaste. What a certified lord. And the only clothing he owns are SKT T1 uniforms and t-shirts. I mean this guy is humble, sweet, and a god at the game. Is he the peak male performance we males seek? 

How badass is this player? - Really? Do you want me to tell you how badass he is? Come on now… But yes he did win many major and premier tournaments back to back, he cemented himself in the history books of League of Legends. Some of the champions this lord plays are Zed, LeBlanc, Ahri, Azir, Ryze, Syndra and the list goes on. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

He won first place in the Mid-Season Invitational 2017 playing with his team SKT T1 and earning a whopping 676,000$ for it.
