LCS power rankings: 2020 Spring Split week one

This year was supposed to be another year of the horse. Despite the Chinese zodiac starting over in 2020, nearly all LCS fans thought Liquid were going to add to their LCS trophy case with the offseason roster improvements they made. 

But after the first week of play, it looks like their grip over the region may be fading. In fact, our League experts were shaken enough that a new contender has risen to the top of the rankings. Of course, there are reasons for Liquid’s uneven play of late—we’ll get to that in the analysis below. But for starters, we had our experts rank each team from worst (one point) to best (10 points). Here’s the result:

Rank Team Points Ranking Change
1) Cloud9 58 +3
2) Team Liquid 56 -1
3) Dignitas 45 +7
4) FlyQuest 45 +4
5) TSM 31 -3
6) CLG 26 -3
7) Evil Geniuses 26 -1
8) Immortals 19 -1
9) 100 Thieves 18 -3
10) Golden Guardians 6 -1

So why did Liquid drop and what’s going on with the rest of the LCS? Let’s break it down, tier by tier.

Trust the process: Immortals, 100 Thieves, Golden Guardians

Right off the bat, we have an interesting set of results. Each of these teams is in this tier for a different reason. Golden Guardians belong the most. All of our rankers had them down as the worst team in the LCS after losses to 100 Thieves and Cloud9.
