Week 8 Manatsu’s Magazine

Hi! Manatsu here, power ranking and predicting who will win their matches this week. We are almost at the end of the season with the final week of cross divisional play before the last round of the divisional series. It’s been a wild week. Goon Squad lost their first cross divisional game, against a Teemo. Anarchy Amber has mental boomed. Greedee still inflates !rawr Lethal’s power rankings. Division 3 is super stacked; Conference 2 in general. All current 4th seeds in each division are officially eliminated from playoff contention. As a reminder, RPR stands for Remaining Power Ranking. It’s the average power rankings of the teams left that the team has to play against. Also, you might notice a discrepancy in the MVP points. This is because the stats calculation were recalculated so I needed to go back and tally up the points again. With that said, let’s get started!
