Five teams representing the pro leagues in North America, Europe, China, Korea and Southeast Asia/Taiwan will clash at the Shanghai Grand Stage.</p><p>There are five regions attending, but only the top four will claim a bye for their region's top seed into the quarterfinals at the Season 3 World Championship. The team that wins it all also secures a coveted extra spot for their region at the Championship to go along with bragging rights as best pro region in the world at the break.</p><p>During the weeks leading up to the event, we'll introduce each of the five teams traveling to China. We've already tallied your votes and <a href="http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/news/get-ready-lcs-all-star-week" target="_blank">revealed the European all-star team</a>; now let's meet the players you chose:</p><p>With over 650,000 votes, <strong>Edward "'EDward" Abgaryan</strong> heads to China in firm command of the support role. Known for his aggressive play, Edward's reputation grew as "'The Thresh Prince" while excelling as the Chain Warden during Gambit Gaming's successful run through the EU Spring Split. His mechanical mastery of high-utility support champions should prove invaluable to the EU teams' pursuit of an All-Star Event victory.</p><p>The bottom lane duo is fleshed out by <strong>Peter "'Yellowpete" W├╝ppen</strong>, Evil Genius' deadly marksman. Rocking a consistent 3.8 KDA throughout the Spring Split, Yellowpete is notoriously calm and composed, even during the most hectic team fight. His expansive champion pool, combined with EDward's potent aggression, may prove too much to handle in Shanghai.</p><p>The infamous counter-jungler, <strong>Danil "'Diamondprox" Reshetnikov</strong> garnered almost 600,000 votes to find himself an EU all-star. Known for supporting his team through aggressive jungle play, Diamondprox is credited with single-handedly impacting the international metagame through unconventional picks and dominance in jungle duels. His 5.5 KDA marks him as a dynamic force to be reckoned with, and there's no doubt he will heavily influence the outcomes of the EU team's games during the All-Star Event.</p><p><strong>Alexei "'Alex Ich" Ichetovkin</strong> heads to China as the mid-lane player for the EU all-stars. Leading Gambit to a second-place finish in the Spring Split, Alex Ich is known as the tactical and mechanical mastermind behind Gambit's success. Originally known for his superior AP tank play, Alex Ich wasn't content to be typecast. Branching out into assassins, AD casters and even more unconventional picks, he's transformed his game and stands ready to assert his mid-lane dominance in Shanghai.</p><p>When <strong>Paul "'sOAZ" Boyer</strong> and Mike "'Wickd" Petersen realized that the voters were evenly split on who should represent EU in the top lane, there was only one thing to do: <a href="http://euw.lolesports.com/season3/split1/articles/call-out-wickd-vs-soaz">a 1v1 showdown to settle the score</a>. As the dust settled, sOAZ's Nunu stood triumphant over Wickd's Jayce, and the EU all-star team was set. Fresh off a victory in the EU Spring Split with Fnatic, sOAZ will land in China ready to do the same.</p><p>Check out the video above to find out what All-Star selection means to your favorite players and remember to watch the All-Star games live from Shanghai starting on May 24 at <a href="http://www.lolesports.com" target="_blank">www.lolesports.com</a>.</p><p>Did you miss a team introduction?

They all look like they hate each other.

Very good gamers overall I'm just not quite sure whether the Teamwork will work or not.

If they overcome the language problem they might be on par with the asian teams.
