The Dota World Ranking is led by Johan Sundstein, called BigDaddy, in September. He shares the spot as the best player with his former teammates from OG.
BigDaddy, Cr1t-, Fly, Miracle- and MoonMeander lead the Dota World Ranking in September 2016. The five formed the team OG until a few weeks ago. Together the five won two Majors in less than a year and were the fastest to ever reach the top of the World Ranking – even faster than Team Secret before them.
Moonmeanders new team is already at the top
But now the team is split up. Only BigDaddy and Fly remain in OG. Cr1t- and Miracle are teamless. Moonmeander joined DigitalChaos and the numbers six and seven of the Dota World Ranking: MiSeRy and w33. The two continued the success they had as part of Team Secret after leaving said team and joining DC in spring. The team was runner-up at this years International – the best effort the American team ever had.
Kaka is the best asian in the Dota World Ranking
There is only one Asian in the top10 for now: KaKa holds the eigth place in the ranking. The 23-year-old is the main reason why EHOME.cn was so successful during the Winter Season and Newbee managed to come back to the top tier this summer. Now he left Newbee and will surely be a top gear for any team looking for a good captain.
KaKa is even better ranked this month than the whole team of Team Liquid – which lost FATA- and JerAx in the aftermath of the International. Nevertheless they had a good run with four top3 finishes in Spring and a seventh place at The International last month.
A hard time for chinese players
With Liquid playes joining the top10 of the Dota World Ranking it’s time to say goodbye to the Evil Geniuses who drop to rank 14 – as well as the best Dota player of all time, Puppey, who is down to rank 18 this month.
The International winners of Wings Gaming rise to rank 34 together. Amongst the hottest players this month are also Saksa from DC (+17 ranks) and Secret new addition MidOne (+13 ranks). On the other hand it’s a hard time for many chinese players like [aggressif] (-27 ranks) or the Canadian Aui_2000 (-30 ranks).
