It was quite the second week of action in the LCS. The standings are now perfectly balanced, with two teams each tied with records ranging from 5-1 to 1-5. There’s still plenty of games to cover, but early in the year we can continue tracking where the players stack up in our LCS player rating and rankings by position!

Top Lane

1. Barney “Alphari” Morris, TL – 96 OVR (+3)
2. Ibrahim “Fudge” Allami, C9 – 87 OVR (-1)
3. Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong, EG – 84 OVR (-1)
4. Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho, 100T – 80 OVR (-2)
5. Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon, TSM – 79 OVR (+2)
6. Mohamed “Revenge” Kaddoura, IMT – 77 OVR (+1)
7. Eric “Licorice” Ritchie, FLY – 77 OVR (+2)
8. Finn “Finn” Wiestål, CLG – 76 OVR (-2)
9. Aiden “Niles” Tidwell, GGS – 72 OVR (-4)
10. Aaron “FakeGod” Lee, DIG – 72 OVR (+1)

Not many big swings in our top lane rankings and ratings. Niles obviously had the biggest change in his player rating in Week 2, falling down four overall points after promising to top gap Finn. For the record, that wouldn’t exactly be a massive accomplishment, given that Finn has been underperforming.

Someone who was definitely not underperforming this week, though, was TSM’s Huni. The object of a lot of online scorn, Huni has actually put in some decent performances of late, creeping closer to the average 80 overall player rating.

See how all the LCS starters stack up in our player ranking!

1. Robert “Blaber” Huang, C9 – 102 OVR (+1)
2. Brandon Joel “Josedeodo” Villegas, FLY – 80 OVR (-)
3. Lucas “Santorin” Tao Kilmer Larsen, TL – 79 OVR (-1)
4. Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen, EG – 78 OVR (-2)
5. Andrei “Xerxe” Dragomir, IMT – 77 OVR (+13)
6. Can “Closer” Çelik, 100T – 77 OVR (-)
7. Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett, DIG – 77 OVR (+5)
8. Raymond “Griffin” Griffin, CLG -75 OVR (-5)
9. Ethan “Iconic” Wilkinson, GGS – 75 OVR (-5)
10. Mingyi “Spica” Lu, TSM – 71 OVR (+2)

Blaber continues to skew the grading curve between himself and the rest of the junglers to the point he should be in his own separate category. The top three after Blaber – Josedeodo, Santorin, and Svenskeren) were largely unchanged, but Xerxe seems to be getting accustomed to NA with a fantastic Week 2.

On the opposite side of the jungle player rating, both Griffin and Iconic had subpar weeks, knocking them towards the bottom of the rankings. Both are victims of being on the two worst teams in the LCS (the reason their GPM and KDAs are in the toilet), but beyond that the two have opposite problems. Griffin has proven to be anemic at early game pathing, while Iconic is one of the least-efficient damage dealers in his role.


1. Luka “Perkz” Perković, C9 – 91 OVR (-)
2. Daniele “Jiizuke” di Mauro, EG – 88 OVR (-4)
3. Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen, TL – 83 OVR (-1)
4. David “Insanity” Challe, IMT – 82 OVR (-)
5. Alexey “rjs” Zatorski, CLG – 78 OVR (-)
6. Max “Soligo” Soong, DIG – 78 OVR (+10)
7. Tanner “Damonte” Damonte, 100T – 77 OVR (-3)
8. Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage, TSM – 76 OVR (+3)
9. Cristian “Palafox” Palafox, FLY – 76 OVR (+2)
10. Nicholas “Ablazeolive” Antonio Abbott, GGS – 68 OVR (-4)

It continues to be a two-horse race between the EU imports – Perkz and Jiizuke – for mid lane dominance. Yes, I know Jensen is also originally from EU, but he seems to have been in NA too long, as it’s wearing on his skills. Unfortunately, Jiizuke had a terrible Week 2, surrendering his top spot to Perkz for the moment.

A bright spot for the surging Dignitas, Soligo is probably the unsung hero of the week. He hasn’t been exceptional other than simply not dying and contributing his fair share of damage. If he can shore up his laning, DIG could be in a very solid position to potentially make a deeper run.


1. Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen, C9 – 90 OVR (-3)
2. Toàn “Neo” Trần, DIG – 89 OVR (+5)
3. Ian Victor “FBI” Huang, 100T – 88 OVR (+3)
4. Edward “Tactical” Ra, TL – 83 OVR (+2)
5. Matthew “Deftly” Chen, EG – 81 OVR (-1)
6. Lawrence “Lost” Sze Yuy Hui, TSM – 79 OVR (+4)
7. Jason “WildTurtle” Tran, CLG – 79 OVR (-3)
8. Johnson “Johnsun” Nguyen, FLY – 76 OVR (-1)
9. Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes, GGS – 69 OVR (-2)
10. Quin “Raes” Korebrits, IMT – 66 OVR (-3)

A very good week for TSM’s Lost, who has continued to climb the ranks during his rookie year. The same can be said for Neo, who has to be considered one of the MVP candidates for the young year, outperforming expectations and helping to lift Dignitas well beyond their projected ceiling.

That said, two of the other top three ADCs – Zven and FBI – are proving to be formidable foes. With two other exceptional bot laners, Tactical and Deftly, nipping at their heels, the ADC position might be one of the top-to-bottom strongest roles in NA this year.


1. Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in, TL – 89 OVR (-5)
2. Choi “huhi” Jae-hyun, 100T – 88 OVR (-)
3. Zaqueri “Aphromoo” Black, DIG – 88 OVR (+12)
4. Lee “Ignar” Dong-geun, EG – 85 OVR (-)
5. Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme, C9 – 83 OVR (-3)
6. Leandro “Newbie” Marcos, GGS – 78 OVR (-)
7. David “Diamond” Bérubé, FLY – 77 OVR (-)
8. Hu “SwordArt” Shuo-Chieh, TSM – 74 OVR (+1)
9. Andy “Smoothie” Ta, CLG – 70 OVR (-1)
10. Mitchell “Destiny” Shaw, IMT – 69 OVR (-4)

The best player of the week, by far, was Aphromoo. His Thresh play this weekend was insane, bringing back a form that fans have not seen in years and reminding them why he was considered one of the best NA players ever.

On the other hand, it is rather disappointing to see Vulcan struggling so heavily, especially while his lane partner Zven has been consistently performing at the top of his role. He took a fairly brutal drop in the player rating this week, largely thanks to that abysmal Blitzcrank game against EG.
