With two weeks left until the playoffs, there were a few significant shifts in the League of Legends Top 10 global rankings after the weekends results. Gen.G have managed to retain their top 10 spot moving up to 6th place, while Royal Never Give Up fell all the way to 5th.
SK Telecom T1 were able to go 2 and 0 this week to extend their winning streak to 9 games. They currently stand at 10-5 in a three-way-tie at the top of League of Legends Korea standings, just two weeks before the playoffs. Last weekend saw the League of Legends Championship Series playoffs begin. Team Liquid (sitting in 10th spot of the League of Legends Top 10 this week) currently holds the no.1 seed and earned a first-round bye going into the playoffs.
G2 Esports retain their first place spot in the League of Legends European Championship series and these rankings, despite a disappointing loss to 7 – 7 Team Vitality last week. RNG lost to Top Esports in a tightly-fought contest and dropped below the Chinese outfit, allowing FunPlus Phoenix to rise up to the no.2 spot in the League of Legends Top 10.
|RANKING||TEAM||MATCH RECORD||MOVEMENT (+/-)|
|3.||SK Telecom T1||10-5||+3|
|5.||Royal Never Give Up||10-2||-3|
G2 Esports stay at no.1 again this week despite their 1 and 1 record this week. The outplayed themselves during their match-up against Team Vitality, though they were able to turn things around against Fnatic, showing the same form that has elevated them to the no.1 spot in the rankings, in a 25 minute landslide victory for G2. G2 will remain strong favourites for the LEC unless a team like Vitality, Fnatic or Splyce can significantly improve.
FunPlus Phoenix are pushing RNG for their reputation as the best team from the League of Legends Pro League, owning the best record in the region at the time of writing. This is reminiscent of last season when FPP dominated the regular season, only to fall apart when the playoffs began. FPP showed good form this week against LNG Esports to give fans hope that they might be the no.1 team in the LPL this year.
SK Telecome T1 have made a dramatic u-turn since the third week of the League of Legends Champions Korea summer split. After losing five of their first six games, SKT found themselves in ninth place, fatigued and lost at sea, up against the wall. Since then however, they haven’t looked back. Nine straight wins have seen SKT shoot their way up the leaderboard to the no.3 spot.
Top Esports rise one place to 4th after a win against RNG last week, who have since dropped to 5th spot. Gen.G sit at 6th spot, 3 places higher than the last rankings, thanks to a 2 – 1 win over the Jin Air Green Wings. Keep an eye on Gen.G in the playoffs this year, you heard it here first.
Fnatic then rise to 7th spot, 3 places higher thanks to a comprehensive win against Schalke 04. Splyce fell a spot to 8th this week after a loss to Excel Esports and a win against Rogue. Damwon Gaming had a dramatic 5-place fall to 9th spot after two embarrassing losses to Afreeca Freecs and Hanwha Life Esports. And last but not least, Team Liquid hold up 10th place, rising 1 spot from the last standings, after a tactical Teamfight against Team SoloMid this week.
