How do the North American players stack up against one-another as they head to the international stage this December?
While there is certainly an argument to be made that some of the “best” players in NA may not have qualified for Worlds, at this stage of Vainglory Esports I’d say this qualification is definitely one of the largest & most important indicators of overall performance.
Being one of the best in a region isn’t singularly based on a player’s mechanics, cs per minute, Jungle camp spawn timing, tournament placement, or KDA. Rather it’s a combination of these and more, including less often considered points of impact; such as consistency in decision-making, reliability in tournament attendance and internet connectivity, off-line vs. live performance, international experience, emotional stability, etc. As I think about the impact each player has while in-game, I certainly take all the above (and even more) into consideration.
This ranking will be presented by in-game positions: Lane, Jungle, & Roam; in which I will rank the 3 starters relevant to each category.
For the sake of attention span, I’ll be releasing this in 3 parts! So make sure to keep an eye out for the following articles: “Going to Worlds – NA Junglers” & “Going to Worlds – NA Roamers”. Let’s get into it.
