LCS Summer 2020 Week 6 is in the books, here is where the teams sit in our LCS power rankings.

After another week of insanity, upsets, and the first cut to C9’s previously-impregnable armor, the LCS power rankings were shaken up following Week 5. Week 6 in Summer 2020, however, proved to be just as crazy as the week before.

Cloud9 lost for the second week in a row, bringing them to a tie for first place with a Team Liquid team that pulled itself out of the grave (thanks to Tactical and a resurgence from CoreJJ). Elsewhere around the league, Dignitas had an embarrassingly weak performance against Golden Guardians (who are coming on strong), CLG lost to that same Dignitas team and Immortals, FlyQuest continued to torment TSM, and Evil Geniuses remain an enigma. While the top two teams are clear, we have to wonder if there’s anyone in the LCS that’s even that good?

10. Dignitas (3-9)

Elo: 268 (-21)

Dignitas started the weekend strong, taking down a CLG team that most considered to be fairly formidable. That game saw Dignitas re-insert Omran “V1per” Shoura in place of Samson “Lourlo” Jackson to great results. On his signature Riven pick, V1per went 5/0/3 and ended the game with the most gold of anyone on the map, which is impressive for a top laner.

In their second game of the weekend against Golden Guardians, however, it was a different story. There’s a long-standing meme that teams in the LCS will “do nothing and lose” but that was literally what happened to Dignitas in that game. In a 28-minute loss, Dignitas secured zero kills, one turret, and only contested one dragon.

This wasn’t a perfect game like the one earlier in the season where EG outclassed CLG, Dignitas just never made anything more than a half-hearted attempt to try to win the game. There wasn’t a kill for the first 20 minutes of the game and GGS only needed four kills in the game in order to close it out. Pathetic isn’t a word I throw around lightly, but it’s appropriate to describe this effort.

9. Immortals (3-9)

Elo: 283 (+16)

In an exact replica of Dignitas’s weekend, IMT managed to take down CLG after losing their first game of the weekend to Golden Guardians. I’ll give Immortals credit for making Golden Guardians actually work for their win. They dragged the game to over 38 minutes, secured 12 kills themselves, and even got three dragons in the game! It’s hollow praise in a loss, but it’s miles more than Dignitas mustered.
