LCS Summer 2020 Week 4 is in the books, here is where the teams sit in our LCS power rankings.

The word “fiesta” gets thrown around quite liberally when discussing the games played in the LCS. Unfortunately, during Week 4 of Summer 2020, that word may not have been accurate enough. While the outcome of most of the games was what we would have expected, and thus our power rankings didn’t significantly change, the quality of the games was certainly below par.

This week’s power rankings, as we noted, were largely unchanged from Week 3. That said, as we are almost halfway through Summer 2020, let’s take a look at where each of the teams stand heading into the second round-robin of games.

10. Dignitas (0-8)

Elo: 229 (+5)

Dignitas made another Hail Mary roster move this week, subbing out mid laner Froggen and jungler Akaadian for two veterans on their Academy team. Dardoch and Fenix came in to face 100 Thieves and C9.

The good news is that the team managed to not get completely embarrassed by Cloud9 in the second of the two games. I thought DIG held their own throughout the series and Dardoch was actually performing quite well in the game, despite the eventual loss.

The bad news is that this game came after they were full-on embarrassed by 100 Thieves the day before. And make no mistake it was an embarrassing showing by the team, but especially the two substitutes. Dardoch continued his tradition from TSM of going way too aggressively and dying needlessly, while Fenix looked like he was playing Twisted Fate for the first time in his life.

9. Immortals (1-7)

Elo: 248 (+4)

Two losses to Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid, but this current Immortals lineup is already miles above the roster that started the split. The team was competitive in both games, holding the gold lead for a significant amount of both games and dragging each to over 40 minutes.

The one negative from this weekend was the play of veteran jungler Xmithie. He looked every bit the past-his-prime jungler that deserved to be benched, going a combined 2/10/9 in the games this week. I’d love to see rookie Potluck get more action with this roster, especially as they are preparing to have a banger of a game next week with Dignitas to determine who truly is the worst of the worst.
