Our LCS Summer 2020 Week 4 player power ranking ranks the ADCs.


1. Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen (Cloud9)

You’re welcome, Cloud9 fans, for putting the anti-hex on Zven after questioning if his play was falling off during the Week 3 player ranking. In Week 4, Zven looked like that dominant carry that had carried C9 through the early part of the Spring Split. In particular, his 9/2/6 Ezreal in the win over CLG was a sight to behold as he did over 700 damage per minute.

2. Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng (TSM)
3. Ian Victor “FBI” Huang (Golden Guardians)
4. Edward “Tactical” Ra (Team Liquid)
5. Bae “Bang” Jun-sik (Evil Geniuses)
6. Johnson “Johnsun” Nguyen (Dignitas)

Many spectators lamented that Johnsun was being kept in “elo hell” by Dignitas last week and I tend to agree with them.  His scoreline (5/7/7 over two games) wasn’t eye-popping, but he did manage to out-damage Zven in that loss against C9. Unquestionably, he was the best player wearing a Dignitas jersey last weekend.

He has done well for having to be the only reliable carry for Dignitas this year, as he’s accounted for 42.3% of his team’s kills. That said, I would like to see his damage output be a little more consistent as his adjusted DPM (479.9) is well below his position’s average (519.8).

7. Apollo “Apollo” Price (Immortals)
8. Jason “WildTurtle” Tran (FlyQuest)
9. Brandon “Mash” Phan (FlyQuest)
10. Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes (CLG)

Stixxay has actually done quite well in the damage output arena for himself. He’s usually a bit lower in terms of damage, but this split he’s rocking an above-average (552.6 aDPM) compared to last split (482.1 aDPM). The biggest problem facing Stixxay is his laning.

Currently, Stixxay averages the third-worst gold differential at 15 minutes (-356) but also has the worst CS (-11) and experience (-476) differentials at that time. We saw this in the TSM game where, despite getting first blood and having his team execute a turret dive before the 15-minute mark, he was still down in CS to Doublelift.

11. Cody “Cody Sun” Sun (100 Thieves)
12. Johnny “Altec” Ru (Immortals)
