Team Secret isn’t only the most successful but also the strongest Dota 2 team. They surpass Evil Geniuses only by a small margin though. And then there is OG…
Team Secret also tops the strength ranking of the Dota 2 teams this month. They pass Evil Geniuses who held the pole position for quite some months. But the TI5-champions have been struggling a bit lately and thus fallen behind Puppeys squad that won several major tournaments recently and also climbed the top of the Team World Ranking last month.
Team Secret challenged by OG and Team Liquid
The strength ranking is calculated by adding the the individual ranking scores of the five best members of each team. Thus the ranking differs from the World Ranking which only measures team success. Teams with strong members profit even if they haven’t been together for a long time. This is for example true for Frankfurt-Major-champion OG who are the seventh strongest team in the world right now, just a little ahead of Team Liquid.
Some of the newly formed teams after The International are also way up in the strength ranking: DigitalChaos for example is 16th, the CIS Rejects 17th. They are both surpassed by chinese TongFu who disappointed a lot lately and will drastically fall soon if they fail to improve their play.
Newbee and Na’Vi have fallen low
As in the real World Ranking, TI4-champion Newbee has already fallen. The team of Hao is 19th now. Even worse is the situation for long-time superb team Natus Vincere: Since the Ukranians only have two players left, their strength score is pretty low. This month they fall even behind the newly signed STARK eSports to rank 32.
