Artour ‚Arteezy‘ Babaev and Ludwig ‚zai‘ Wahlberg take the lead in the Dota 2 Player World Ranking. They don’t even need to share the pole position this time.
The change occurs because Arteezy and Zai both won the ESL Frankfurt 2015 in June with the [secret team]. Their current teammates also benefit from that: KuroKy and Puppey enter the Top10 for the first time since September 2014, s4 is on rank 12 now.
Three teams occupy the first 14 places
The first 14 ranks in the Player World Ranking now belong to the three currently dominating teams of the scene: [secret team], Vici Gaming and Evil Geniuses. Only EG’s Suma1L is a little bit lower on rank 51 due to the fact that he is still relatively new to competitive Dota.
But some players are on the rise, especially the lineup of Virtus.pro which improves by about 20 ranks this month with Fng, DkPhobos, Illidan and Lil occupying the ranks 24 to 27 which are all-time highs for all of them.
Players of Invictus Gaming drop
Where some players ascend in the ranking other have to descend: This is true this month for example for MMY (down to #22), bOne7 and EternaLEnVy (#31) and especially the team of Invictus Gaming with players like ChuaN, [ferrari430] and Luo who drop 15 ranks to #34.
