The League of Legends Top 10 global rankings remained largely unchanged after the weekends results, though there was some movement following a few surprising results. For the first time this summer Gen.G broke into the top 10 replacing fellow LCK team Sandbox Gaming who dropped out following three straight weeks in 8th place.
As the playoffs loom ever nearer League of Legends teams have but a few weeks to prepare and find their form. Just below the League of Legends Top 10 rankings SK Telecom T1 climbed to 11th place just one place ahead of reigning world champions Invictus Gaming. There was also some shuffling between three Chinese teams, three Korean teams, three European teams and a North American team.
|RANKING||TEAM||MATCH RECORD||MOVEMENT (+/-)|
|2.||Royal Never Give Up||7-1||+1|
G2 Esports stay at no.1 this week. They have remained at the top of the power rankings now for weeks and it is looking likely that their form will continue, unless the overloaded Patch 9.14 throws them for a loop. RNGU climbed 1 place this week despite having one win less than FPP. The quality of their wins however sees them take the no.1 spot in the League of Legends Top 10 from their co-LPL team after picking up wins against top opposition like EDward Gaming and Victory Five.
Much like Top Esports, FPP suffer a lack of diversity in their gameplay. Having fallen 1 place in the rankings to no.3, FPP will be looking for more consistent form following a recent loss against Invictus. Damwon Gaming have risen a mighty 3 places this week raising the question, who are the best team in South Korea right now? The South Korean side may not have as strong a game plan as fellow Korean teams Sandbox Gaming and Kingzone but have shown much more decisive form in recent matches, recently beating Griffin 2 – 0.
Kingzone DragonX have fallen one place to no.5 this week, despite being the favourite Korean team to move into the top spots. The managed only a shakey 2 – 1 win against Hanwha Life Esports but will need to improve their form with games coming up against teams such as the Afreeca Freecs, SK Telecom T1 and Sandbox Gaming.
In the lower half of the League of Legends Top 10 this week Top Esports fell one place as did LEC team Fnatic. As mentioned before Gen.G managed to break into the top 10 at the no.8 spot while Spylce remain steady at no. 9. Rounding up the top 10 is Team Liquid who became the first LCS team to qualify for the playoffs last weekend after wins against Clutch Gaming and Golden Guardians.
