Before now, G2 Esports jungler Jankos developed a tier record on his personal livestream rating every staff collaborating in this year’s League of Legends Entire world Championship. G2 by themselves will be at the function, and Jankos’ ranking of his have staff borders more towards reasonable than overconfident.
In his tier checklist, Jankos rated G2 Esports as a C-Tier group, putting them beneath teams this sort of as Gen.G, Edward Gaming and Rogue, the latter of whom swept G2 in the LEC Summer Finals very last 7 days. He equated G2 to be on the very same stage as North America’s Cloud9, Vietnam’s GAM Esports, and Korea’s DRX, who were also rated C-tier.
Jankos also rated G2 as the weakest staff in Team B, ranking his squad under the LCK third-seed DWG KIA and LPL champions JD Gaming. Jankos put all 4 Chinese groups at Worlds earlier mentioned G2, while also putting G2 previously mentioned all North American groups.
“It feels seriously awkward to set G2 together with Rogue mainly because we bought 3-0’d,” Jankos mentioned of his team’s placement. “But, the argument for that is that I assume we are additional versatile than Rogue. As significantly as we got -3’d, I feel mainly because we are a lot more adaptable, we might adapt far better to the Worlds meta.”

The tier list was also purchased from left-to-right in every single tier, effectively meaning that Jankos believes Gen.G to be the most effective workforce at the function, while Further than Gaming out of the PCS would technically be the worst.
All 3 North American groups attending Worlds were being ranked above Europe’s third and fourth seeds, Fnatic and MAD Lions. Although Jankos at first contemplated placing MAD Lions in the list’s F-tier, he backed up his reasoning for the LEC squad’s greater placement with an inclination that they “have to be greater than Oceania and Brazil.”
G2 will not have to perform along with MAD Lions and insignificant region groups during the Worlds perform-in phase, seeing as they experienced directly for the Worlds group stage. Although the tournament will commence with the participate in-ins on Sept. 29, G2 will not choose the phase until finally Oct. 7, when the group phase kicks off.
