NA CWL Week 2 Power Rankings

At first glance, it looks like many top teams dropped maps and even wins versus inferior opponents. But in reality, Rise, Optic and a few other teams lost because of lag issues in the game. You can read more about these issues here.

1 (-) 130px-riseRise Nation(3-1) – Classic, Loony, Octane, Slacked
[3-0 C9, 2-3 LG] Rise was looking unstoppable right now. C9 never stood a chance and LG shouldn’t have either but connection issues were a problem with Rise along with other top teams.

2 (-) 130px-opticOptic Gaming(2-2) – Crimsix, Formal, Karma, Scump
[1-3 H2K, 3-0 eLv] The loss vs H2K shouldn’t prove much as there was connection issues throughout. Optic will still destroy anyone below them.

3 (-) 130px-faze_clanlogo_squareFaze Clan(3-1) – Attach, Clayster, Enable, Zooma
[1-3 dT, 3-0  100T] Faze lost to dT with because of the lag issues.

4(-) 130px-nvTeam Envyus(2-2) – Apathy, John, Jkap, Slasher
[0-3 TSM, 3-1 C9] TSM made nV look like amateurs but they did well against C9.

5(+3130px-dreamteamlogo_squareDream Team(3-1) – Diabolic, Chino, Killa, Sender
[3-1  Faze, 3-2 coL] Killa looks like he’s back to World Championship form. The team beat coL with a .87 team K/D so if slaying picks up, dT could stay at the top of the standings.

6(-1130px-elvTeam Elevate(1-3) – Aqua, Faccento, Nagafen, Felony
[0-3 OG, 3-1 coL] Felony performed well in his first match. It might take a few weeks before Elevate really clicks though.

7(+2130px-h2k-gaminglogo_squareH2K(3-1) – Fears, Lacefield, Legal, Phizzurp
[3-1 OG, 3-1 TSM] H2K beat Optic with the lag issues and TSM handily without. They started last Stage 3-1 as well but ended up in relegation.

8(-3130px-colComplexity(1-3) – Goonjar, Mirx, Nameless, Ricky
[2-3 dT, 1-3 eLv] Neslo subbed for the first map against elevate but it really made no difference. Col has a lot of problems to work out.

9(-2130px-cloud9logo_squareCloud 9(2-2) – Happy, Havok, LlamaGod, Mochila
[0-3 Rise, 1-3 nV] C9 got pounded by Rise, but who doesn’t these days.

10(+2130px-team_solomidlogo_squareTeam SoloMid(1-3) – ColeChan, Ivy, Pacman, Whea7s
[3-0 nV, 1-3 H2K] As bad as TSM was last week, they were that good this week. Time will tell what version they really are.

11(+1130px-luminosity_gaming_logoLuminosity(2-2) – Saints, Spacely, Study, TeePee
[3-2 100T, 3-2 Rise] LG barely defeated 100T and beat Rise via lag. There is still a lot to be expected from LG but they haven’t showed anything yet.

12(-2hundred_thieveslogo_square2Hundred Thieves(1-3) – Examples, Johnny, Nelson, Royalty
[2-3 LG,0-3 Faze] 100T really needs to figure out CTF an Uplink still. They’re not good enough to have hardpoint and s&d carry them against good teams as proven against Faze.
