With Week 8 of LCS Summer 2020 over, we break down the best performers of the week in our player power ranking.

With only one week left in the LCS Summer Split, the focus is not only on the playoff picture but also the races for the major awards. MVP voting will begin soon, as will votes for the All-LCS teams. Let’s take a look at where the top players sit according to our grading system after Week 8 of the Summer Split.

Top Lane

1. Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho (100 Thieves) – 90.3
2. Eric “Licorice” Ritchie (Cloud9) – 88.7

It was not a great week for Cloud9 (who had their first 0-2 week in over a calendar year) or their top laner. Licorice might have had a fine start to Week 8, going 5/3/2 on Sett top in their close loss to the Golden Guardians, but he was probably the biggest issue that caused them to lose to TSM.

Licorice went 1/7/4 on Kennen, totally misplaying the lane phase to give Broken Blade an early lead that allowed mid laner Bjergsen to ult top with TF and secure first blood. From then on, the game was nothing but a bunch of whiffed engages that just let TSM pull further and further away.

3. Kevin “Hauntzer” Yarnell (Golden Guardians) – 85.6
4. Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon (Dignitas) – 82.0
5. Alexey “Deus” Zatorski (CLG) – 80.0
6. Kim “Ruin” Hyeong-min (CLG) – 79.6
7. Colin “Solo” Earnest (FlyQuest) – 79.6
8. Ziqing “Kumo” Zhao (Evil Geniuses) – 79.3
9. Sergen “Broken Blade” Çelik (TSM)  – 78.8
10. Samson “Lourlo” Jackson (Dignitas) – 78.7
11. Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong (Team Liquid) – 78.2
12. Kieran “Allorim” Logue (Immortals) – 74.7

An 0/4/12 scoreline for the week doesn’t seem to be too terrible for Allorim, especially considering that he played Ornn and Sion in those two games. However, on a team with two of the lowest-damage junglers and ADCs, someone on this team needs to help support their mid laner Insanity. There’s also the small matter of Allorim’s rather high death total (3.3 deaths per game, 25.7% death share) despite playing mostly tanks.

13. Paul “sOAZ” Boyer (Immortals) – 74.7
14. Omran “V1per” Shoura (Dignitas) – 74.1
