It’s been four years but we have a new leader of the Starcraft 2 World Ranking who is not from South Korea: Jens ‚Snute‘ Aasgaard has taken the throne.
Snute has taken the top of the Starcraft 2 World Ranking. The Norwegian passed both sOs and Solar this month by winning the WCS Copa International. He is the first foreigner at the top of the World Ranking since Stephano in 2012! It’s been four very long years for this moment happen.
Three foreigners in the top ten of the Starcraft 2 World Ranking
And Snute is still accompanied by two more foreigners in the top ten: Nerchio remains on rank 5 and ShoWTimE on rank 8 after being the runner-up at the WCS Copa behind Snute. The only new player among the ten best in the world is Classic (kdw). The Korean is back after three months because he was the best player in this season Proleague Playoffs.
And this easily we have already named the three best players in September which were Classic, Snute and Showtime in this order. Besides them Dark and Neeb also gathered important ranking points as they were runner-up at the Proleague Playoffs and third at WCS Copa respectively. Especially Neeb, who also won the Kespa Cup today, is leaving another mark in the sand. He rises to rank 11 this month and may enter the top ten for the first time in his career in November.
Kas climbs 130 ranks after his best performance of the year
Since almost all the top players also held the top spots in Septembers two most important Starcraft tournaments, the World Ranking hasn’t seen any overwhelming changes this month, but players like Stats, Cyan, Has and iaguz either climb the ladder slowly or are gearing up for a comeback. The ukranian top player Kas made a significant jump of 130 ranks due to his best tournament performance this year at the StarLine 1xBet League Season 2.
