The old team of OG once again leads the Dota 2 World Ranking in October. It will be the last time though, because the five former mates belong to three different teams now.
The Dota 2 World Ranking of Ocotber is a little odd. So much has happended during the transfer phase after The International, but the ranking still looks as if old teams never broke up. Rank 1 for example is shared by BigDaddy, Cr1t-, FLY, Miracle- and MoonMeander once again. The five used to play for OG for more than a year all together and thus share the same points.
But things are different now. Cr1t is playing for Evil Geniuses, Miracle for Team Liquid and MoonMeander for [digitalchaos]. That’s a phenomenon you can see a little below once again: Ranks 7 to 10 are Fear, ppd, Suma1L and zai. But only the latter two still play for Evil Geniuses, the former two retired after The International. Nevertheless they all jumped by seven ranks this month, though EG didn’t play a single tournament. But MiSeRy and w33 dropped out of the top ten as well as the former squad of Team Liquid. So in return, EGs players improved.
33 chinese players in the top 100 of the Dota 2 World Ranking
This months ranking is also special because it features unusually many players without a team in the top100. We already mentioned the retired Fear and ppd. But there are also players like FATA-, Akke, AdmiralBulldog or Silent, who just didn’t find a team for the Fall Season so far.
One third of the best 100 Dota players in the world is chinese by the way, but only KaKa achieves a top ranking. The 23-year-old from Newbee is sixth. Behind him is a huge gap until the current team of Wings Gaming shares rank 36. In between them are other Asians, namely the former players of MVP Phoenix, two of which left the squad and joined Team Secret in the meantime.
