After a wild week 3 in the LCS who sits atop the mountain?
Flyquest is playing similar to Dignitas as far as losing streaks go. However, their overall record isn’t as good as Dignitas. With both teams going winless this week I feel like Flyquest drops into the worst spot in the LCS.
Dignitas had a bad weekend at 0-3 and it’s costing them places in the summer standings. Two of this weekend’s three losses came from CLG and Golden Guardians, the bottom two teams in the overall standings. If you can’t beat the teams below you it’s going to be rough. Plus they have the worst current losing streak in the LCS at four games. So while they are still above .500 in their overall record, they aren’t doing well at the moment.
8. Golden Guardians
Golden Guardians still have the worst overall record in the LCS. However unlike Flyquest, or Dignitas won a game this weekend. Actually, it was over Dignitas, which gives them a bit of a boost in the power rankings. the move up one spot this week from ninth to eighth.

Cloud9 looked bad in an 0-3 week against Evil Geniuses, Immortals, and TSM. Their 4-5 summer record is a cause for concern and a reason for their massive drop from last week’s power rankings. They do still have a 17-10 overall record, which is tied for third-best, but they are now on the third-longest losing streak in the LCS. For that reason, they drop five spots in this week’s power rankings.
CLG came out of nowhere this week with a 3-0 week. This included a big win over 100 Thieves and wins over Evil Geniuses and Dignitas. Our 10th ranked team is on the climb as they now own a 4-5 Summer Split record. Their overall record remains poor at 9-18, but at least they can celebrate not being ranked 10th this week. They climb up four spots to number six.
Evil Geniuses went 2-1 this week with wins against Cloud9 and Golden Guardians. This improves their summer split record to 4-5 and overall record to 14-13.
Immortals are 5-4 after a pair of wins including a solid victory over Cloud9 this weekend. Their Summer record is the main reason to rank them so high, but they are improving the overall record slowly. They jump up two spots in this week’s power ranking for solid performance.
3. Team Liquid
Liquid rises up a spot from last week’s power rankings with a 2-1 record. They now have tied Cloud9 in overall wins and sit just a game back of second place overall and two games back of first place overall. Their 5-4 record maybe a bit of a disappointment this summer, but it is still the third-best mark in the LCS. Barney “Alphari” Morris is also scheduled to return to the starting lineup next week which could be a boost for Liquid during week four.
2. 100 Thieves
100 Thieves had a 3-0 weekend including a quality win over Team Liquid. They are 18-9 with a 7-2 overall record for the summer. While they did lose to a lower-ranked CLG this past weekend it doesn’t hurt their overall standings spot much, thanks to last week’s number two team Cloud9 dropping all three games this weekend, which allowed 100 Thieves to pass them in the overall standings. They do drop a spot in the power rankings from last week with TSM moving ahead of them in overall win total, despite the tie atop the summer standings.
TSM finished off a 3-0 week with a very convincing win over Cloud9. This gives them a 7-2 Summer record, but an overall record of 19-8, which is the best in the division. They have also won their last four in a row. Unlike a lot of teams, TSM hasn’t made any roster swaps this summer and the consistency is paying off. They rise two spots from last week’s power rankings to take the top spot.
