As MSI 2023 is right around the corner, here is the list of the best ADC players competing in this tournament.

Mid-Season Invitational, or MSI for short, is the first annual international tournament of League of Legends. In this event, the top teams from all around the world compete against each other. There will be 13 teams attending this event, and the winning team will be granted the title of MSI champions.

As League of Legends is a team-based game, every player is divided into roles. While all the roles are important, ADC is one of the most significant roles for the late game.

The bot laner, more commonly known as ADC (Attack Damage Carry), is a role where the player is very fragile in the early game. But in the late game, they become the strongest player with the highest damage potential after buying some items. However, even in that stage, they can be highly squishy, so a timely attack or an assassin could quickly shut down the bot laner.

As an ADC has the most damage potential, they are responsible for getting the highest kill in the game. Because of this, an ADC player must get the gold advantage, from the early stage and has to die the least amount of time.

Since MSI 2023 is just around the corner, every League of Legends fan can see the highest level of play from the best teams. So here is the list of the top support players attending the upcoming major tournament.

Korean by birth, Berserker is currently the main ADC of Cloud 9. Around the time Berserker joined C9, the game’s meta shifted in his favor. So he was able to dominate the NA League of Legends scene. While his main champion is Zeri, he also plays Varus and Xayah, as they are also dominant in the current meta.

4 – Gumayusi (T1)

Gumayusi is the main ADC for T1. After a successful pro debut for T1 in 2020, he immediately became a fan-favorite bot laner. Additionally, his most reliable picks are Aphelios, Caitlyn, and Ezreal. But similar to other top-level ADC players, he has also been dominating with Varus.

3 – Peyz (Gen.G)

While his main champion in this split has been Zeri, Peyz is also winning with Lucian, Xayah, Aphelios, and Varus. Overall, Peyz is one of the youngest players fans should keep their eyes on.

2 – Elk (Bilibili Gaming)

Elk is the bot laner for Bilibili Gaming. He is the 19th player to reach 1500 kills in LPL. Like all the players on the list, Elk is proficient with Zeri, Aphelios, Varus, Lucian, and Xayah. In the entire spring split, Elk was able to hold a KDA of 4.9 with nearly a 70% KP. Even after losing to JDG in the finals, the entire roster of BLG still has a lot of potential for the future.

1 – Ruler (JD Gaming)

Ruler is a League of Legends player born in Korea. Formerly, he played for renowned teams like Stardust, SSG, KSV, and Gen.G. Currently, he plays for the Chinese team JD Gaming. Moreover, he and his team JD Gaming also won the LPL Spring 2023, which makes them a top contender at this year’s MSI. Unlike other players on this list, Ruler’s most-played champion is Varus instead of Zeri. But he still dominates his opponents with his aggressive late-game Aphelios and Jinx. He is the person to watch out for in MSI 2023.
