Evil Geniuses leads the Dota World Ranking again – right in time for the Boston Major.
Evil Geniuses is back at the top of the Dota World Ranking: Four months after the Americans lost the top spot to OG, they retake it. EG didn’t need any special performance for this. A third place at The Summit 6 and a fourth at the Northern Arena BEAT Invitational are enough. EG is on an impressive streak: The team has never been worse than second place in the World Ranking since November 2014 – for two years!
Dota World Ranking: Five asian teams among the top10
Their closest predator is Team Liquid: The team benefited most from winning the ASUS ROG Dreamleague Season 6 last month. With the 6,400 points for this on their back they also passed the former leader OG. The team around BigDaddy had a good second place at The Summit 6 but lost points due to their results from the Frankfurt Major 2015 and Dreamleague Season 4 being erased.
Rank 4 of the Dota World Ranking marks the beginning of the asian teams; Wings Gaming reclaimed the top spot among the far-east teams, passing Newbee and MVP Phoenix. Wings won the Northern Arena BEAT Invitational in November. With [ehome.cn] on rank 7 and LGD Gaming on rank 10 there are two more asian teams among the best in the world.
EHOME.X jumps the highest
Some teams outside of the top10 deserve our attention though too. First of, Boston-Major-Contestants Team NP (#40) and Team Faceless (#98) enter the ranking and will surely rise due to the Major next month. Dreamleague runner-up Escape Gaming improves by 35 ranks to rank 27 – even after losing KheZu to Team Secret. The former high-class-team of Puppey drops out of the top10 for the first time since January 2015 and is eleventh now.
The World Electronic Sports Games 2016 Asia Pacific Finals made some SEA- and chinese teams rise. Winner To.be.or.not.to.be improves to rank 41 (+59), kyrgisian runner-up NoLifer5 to rank 48 (+22) and third-placed s1 Lykos to rank 76 (+69). The highest jump made EHOME.X though. EHOMEs new subteam rises 159 ranks to due their third place at the ROG Masters. They are 60th now in the Dota World Ranking.
