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

5. FlyQuest (5-3)

Elo: 409 (+16)

It was an up-and-down week for FlyQuest, who took their first game in a statement win over Evil Geniuses, but then fell to Team Liquid. What has to be the most frustrating is that, as cleanly as they took down EG, they were the opposite in their game against Team Liquid.

It was a back-and-forth affair that saw four lead changes and the biggest gold swing being over 3,000 gold at 29 minutes that netted TL two kills, a dragon, and a Baron. Had FlyQuest managed to hold on and win that game, they’d certainly be in our top three rather than barely in the top half of teams from this week.

Luckily, the team has an easy schedule to fall back on next week as they’ll play 100 Thieves and Dignitas. With two free wins in their sight and one of the teams ahead of them in our power rankings set to face Cloud9 (aka take an almost-guaranteed loss), FlyQuest is in prime position to bounce back up the rankings next week.

4. Evil Geniuses (5-3)

Elo: 429 (-37)

Evil Geniuses had maybe the worst win of Week 4 as they struggled mightily to beat the floundering Immortals team. At one point they were down 3,600 gold, didn’t gain the gold advantage that would ultimately propel them to victory until the 43rd minute, and barely managed to close the second-worst LCS team out in under 50 minutes.

Make no mistake, with this result combined with their loss to FlyQuest, EG is most certainly in trouble. A lot of that trouble has to do with their star mid laner Jiizuke, who proved once again that his team’s success will live or die by his play.

While his 2/4/5 score line on Orianna in the win over Immortals isn’t terrible (though he nearly threw the game with a late attempt to flash and steal Elder Dragon while Immortals jungler was up), he went 0/5/2 on AP Kog’Maw the day before and allowed FlyQuest’s PowerofEvil to run over the game. Hopefully, they can bounce back against Golden Guardians and CLG next week and regain their footing.
