Vici Gaming has taken the lead in the Dota 2 Team World Ranking from Evil Geniuses, who led the ranking eight months in a row. But they might not be on top for long…
Vici Gaming has conquered the top of the Dota 2 Team World Ranking in July. It’s their first time leading the ranking after being in second place for seven months in a row. They are just the fifth team to lead the World Ranking since the beginning of Dota 2 after Natus Vincere (August 2012 – July 2014 and October 2014), Alliance (August 2014), Team DK (September 2014) and Evil Geniuses (November 2014 – June 2015).
The latter lost a lot of points this month, because their efforts of June 2014, when EG von The Summit and was runner-up at ESL Frankfurt, are not counted anymore.
The Secret Team rises incredibly fast
But VG and EG might not be on top for very long: The [secret team] is closing the gap at incredible speed. The team around Puppey won ESL Frankfurt 2015 this month which is their sixth tournament win in their twelveth tournament – astonishing!
Behind the leading three, Invictus Gaming lost some ranks, while Virtus.pro enters the Top10 for the first time after winning ASUS ROG Dreamleague Season 3 in June. The Ninjas in Pyjamas are now close to pass Alliance as the best swedish team around.
Fnatic enters the ranking
There are also some team which improved greatly this month: Duza Gaming for example is among the best 100 teams in the world for the first time in their career, though the russian organization lost their players during the month. The Champions of Summer`s Rift however are on rank 25 now (+42) which is their best rank ever just for like the London Conspiracy (#36), ROOT Gaming (#54), North American Rejects (#59) and Lemondogs (#86). The newly formed team of Fnatic, former Team Malaysia enters the ranking on rank 64.
