With Week 7 of LCS Summer 2020 over, we break down the best performers of the week in our player power ranking.
Two weeks remain in LCS Summer 2020 and teams are beginning to make that final push for the playoffs, jockeying for those coveted first-round byes, a spot in the upper bracket, or just a spot in the playoffs altogether. The end of the split also signifies the beginning of award voting, with awards like MVP and first-team All-LCS up for grabs. Using our player grading system, let’s check in to see where the best players in the league fit in our latest player power ranking!

1. Eric “Licorice” Ritchie (Cloud9) – 91.2
2. Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho (100 Thieves) – 88.0
I’m not sure that you could find an all-around top laner who is better than Ssumday other than Licorice, as the two have been trading spots atop the top lane power rankings all split. In Week 7, unfortunately, Ssumday took a bit of a dip thanks largely to an uninspiring 0/2/1 game on Kennen.
While no one on his team did particularly well (he even managed to out-damage his own ADC on Ashe), he lost the damage and gold counts to his opponent, Hauntzer, on Karma. Even though Hauntzer got early jungle help to get him ahead, I still expect a player of Ssumday’s caliber to be able to win that matchup, which he did not.
3. Kevin “Hauntzer” Yarnell (Golden Guardians) – 83.3
4. Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon (Dignitas) – 82.2
5. Alexey “Deus” Zatorski (CLG) – 80.0
6. Colin “Solo” Earnest (FlyQuest) – 79.7
7. Ziqing “Kumo” Zhao (Evil Geniuses) – 79.3
8. Kim “Ruin” Hyeong-min (CLG) – 79.2
9. Samson “Lourlo” Jackson (Dignitas) – 78.7
10. Sergen “Broken Blade” Çelik (TSM) – 78.0
Broken Blade’s been taking a decent amount of the criticism aimed at TSM’s failings (for the record, TSM’s big problems remain systemic and the only individual you could really finger for underperforming is Spica). In Week 7, he answered those critics with two solid games on Wukong and Ornn. While he’s been accused of not being able to play weak-side, BB has actually done quite well in the role the last few weeks, only surrendering 10 deaths in his last four games.
11. Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong (Team Liquid) – 76.0
12. Kieran “Allorim” Logue (Immortals) – 75.9
13. Paul “sOAZ” Boyer (Immortals) – 74.7
14. Omran “V1per” Shoura (Dignitas) – 74.3
