Team Secret and Evil Geniuses put a huge distance between themselves and the competition in the Dota 2 World Ranking of April. Shanghai-surprise MVP Phoenix meanwhile moves into the Top10.
Team Secret leads the Dota 2 Team World Ranking in April with 55,760 points. That is the second highest score the team (and everyone else) ever achieved and the seventh consecutive month with Secret on the top. Nothing else was to be expected after Puppey and EternaLEnVy won the Shanghai Major in March.
But Secret is still closely hunted by Evil Geniuses: The Americans may have lost two key players to Secret in the shuffle, but before that Arteezy and UNiVeRsE helped EG to achieve a third place at the Major and a second place at the Dota Pit League Season 4.
The Shanghai Major shaped this months Dota 2 World Ranking
The surprising teams of the Shanghai Major are the biggest winners in this months World Ranking, at least at the top: MVP Phoenix gains five ranks and is the tenth most successful team in the world right now. It’s the highest rank for the Koreans since October 2014 – so for more than one and a half years. compLexity Gaming improved by six ranks even and is now on World Rank 18, which is their best position since May 2013.
The Shanghai Major of course dominated the Dota tournament scene in March, which is why the teams that performed well in China are also on the top of this months trend ranking. But we should mention that Natus Vincere launched a successful comeback at the Dota Pit League. Their third place makes the Ukranian team around Dendi the seventh most successful in March. Furthermore Na’Vi rises one rank in the World Ranking (now 17th), which is the first rise since October 2014 when they reclaimed the top spot for the last time. So maybe the downward spiral for Na’Vi has come to an end.
These american teams deserve your attention
Looking a bit lower in the World Ranking, it’s three more american teams that deserve a little attention this month: [shazam~] won the BTS America and was runner-up at the ProDota Cup America, boosting them by 39 ranks to rank 58. That’s a new personal record of course.
[digitalchaos] also set a new personal best by claiming rank 29 after a ninth place at the Dota Pit League and a 17th at the Shanghai Major. With the addition of former Secret-players w33 and MiSeRy much is to be expected of DC in the upcoming months.
Last Team Freedom won the ProDota Cup America and reached a third rank at BTS America. Although these are minor tournaments Freedom has never been better and thus improved by astonishing 81 ranks to rank 107.
