LCS power rankings: 2020 Spring Split week 5

After five weeks, the LCS standings are entering a dangerous dimension. Things are super close, especially in the back half of the league, which will determine the final playoff positions. With four teams tied at 4-6 and two more holding at 5-5, even a little movement could cause the whole landscape of the LCS to change.

The danger extends to our LCS power rankings. After a few weeks of chaos, we had a surprising consensus after week five of the 2020 Spring Split. Out of five League voters—and a total of 50 votes—there was only one vote that differed from the others.

Check it out for yourself—this is what happened when each of our voters ranked the teams from one point (worst) to 10 points (best):

RankTeamPointsRank Change
4)Team Liquid35+1
7)Evil Geniuses20+1
8)100 Thieves15+1
9)Golden Guardians10-2

This level of agreement can be dangerous. It’s possible that we’re just setting up the LCS for a tumultuous few weeks where everything gets turned upside down. That’s generally how the writer curse works—whatever we think will happen, usually the opposite occurs. Get ready for some fireworks in the back half of the Spring Split.
