Our LCS Week 2 player power ranking ranks the junglers.


1. Robert “Blaber” Huang (Cloud9)
2. Lucas “Santorin” Tao Kilmer Larsen (FlyQuest)

The Player of the Week for the LCS in Week 2, Santorin posted a bonkers 9/3/27 combined scoreline in two games as Trundle, which also came with a 92% kill participation on the week. That bumped his overall KP for the split to 85.5%, the highest among all junglers and second in the LCS overall (Stunt has an 85.7% KP).

Santorin is one of the best resource-efficient junglers in theleague, with the highest damage-to-gold ratio in the role and one of only two junglers (Closer is the other) with a ratio above 1. He is one of the worse early game junglers in the league, but that could be due to him facing difficult matchups (like Trundle into Lee Sin) or junglers that clear faster than him (Trundle into Nidalee) this week.

3. Can “Closer” Çelik (Golden Guardians)
4. Matthew “Akaadian” Higginbotham (Dignitas)

While Dignitas is burning all around him, not many people are acknowledging how well Akaadian is doing  in the jungle this split. He is top-four in adjusted damage per minute (291.1) despite the fact that he’s constantly behind in his own jungle. He also has the best vision score per minute (1.71) of all junglers through two weeks, despite the fact that he’s constantly so far behind.

5. Mingyi “Spica” Lu (TSM)
6. Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen (Team Liquid)
7. Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen (Evil Geniuses)
8. Joseph “Potluck” Pollock (Immortals)
9. Raymond “Wiggily” Griffin (CLG)
10. William “Meteos” Hartman (100 Thieves)

It has been a rough Summer Split so far for Meteos, best exemplified by the loss to Team Liquid. Meteos had just about every gank and play turned around on him by a Blitzcrank hook and at times it appeared he wasn’t remotely on the same page as his teammates. The loss wasn’t all his fault, but ending the game 1/5/2 isn’t encouraging at all.

He did do a much better job the following game, as Trundle into Lee Sin. He managed to get a lead in a losing matchup, showing his experience and wisdom over the rookie Potluck and leading his team to their first win.
