Fear, ppd and Suma1L from Evil Geniuses are the new leaders of the Dota 2 World Ranking. Their predecessor Puppey fell far.
Fear, ppd and Suma1L overtake the Dota 2 World Ranking in June. All three players of Evil Geniuses benefit from the good team performance. Though EG only played one tournament in May – fifth at Epicenter Moscow – they were the most consistent for half a year. Since October EG has never been worse than third place at any major event.
For Fear and ppd it’s not the first time at the top. They led the World Ranking back in September for the last time. Suma1L however shines so bright for the first time in his career. The Pakistani joined EG back in January 2015 as an mostly unknown player and has proven himself as a worthy addition to the roster since.
The former ranking leader Puppey meanwhile fell far this month. He dropped from the top that he held in seven of the past eight months to rank six. That’s his worst position since September 2015. Puppey suffered from the poor performance of his Team Secret recently. In the past three months, Secret has only been the sixth most successful team in Dota, despite winning the Shanghai Major in March.
With their new additions Arteezy and UNiVeRsE and their old player EternaLEnVy Secret though still holds the most top10 positions in the world ranking. The best ten players are filled with zai from Kaipi, KuroKy from Team Liquid and BigDaddy from OG, who returns to the top10 for the first time since December.
BigDaddys teammembers Cr1t-, FLY, MoonMeander and Miracle- made huge improvements as well. They gained 24 ranks this month and are tied for the 16th place now. The same applies for Liquids players like MATUMBAMAN, JerAx and MinD_ContRoL and the squad of MVP Phoenix. The Koreans are the best Dota team of the past three months.
There are some shadows too and they lie on China: Sylar from Vici Gaming and the entire roster of LGD Gaming lost more than 30 ranks in June due to their poor performances recently. Seven of the eight most underperforming Dota teams at the moment are from China.
