LEC Power Rankings Winter Split 2024

The LEC is back, kicking off the 2024 LoL esports season with the Winter split. Rostermania has led to a big shakeup and many sides look almost unrecognizable from last year. As a result, the LEC power rankings could see a shift – more in our LEC Power Rankings Winter Split 2024!

LEC Power Rankings Winter 2024

Like any other power rankings, these are entirely subjective at the time of writing with the simple aim of helping out your LEC betting.

10. MAD Lions KOI

The roster decisions by newly-named MAD Lions KOI speak more towards their national marketing efforts than they do of sporting aspirations.

Going all-in on keeping franchise player Elyoya happy by securing his desired players and staff has led to an unrecognisable 2024 lineup. While some players may well live up to LEC expectations, fans shouldn’t expect much of a challenge from this roster.

9. Team BDS

After Worlds qualification last year, BDS took the strange decision of dropping bot laner Crownie who was arguably the player that took them there. Anything but a similar league MVP-level performance by replacement Ice could see them plummet down the table.

8. SK Gaming

There’s not much separating sixth to eighth in the LEC power rankings and SK may well find themselves somewhat higher up the table. Mid laner Nisqy and his leadership skills are a great addition to what is still a fairly inexperienced roster and may help them find the form they showed early last season.

7. Rogue

Another team whose signings might not be enough to see them challenging towards the top, though the pickup of jungler Markoon could prove a clever transfer.

6. GIANTX

While roster changes look fairly promising, the increasing strength of teams around them may mean that GIANTX (formerly Excel) struggle to compete at the top of the LEC rankings as they did during the last of their LoL tournaments.

5. Fnatic

Fnatic’s roster sees only one change from one of the best LEC teams, one that finished runners-up up in the 2023 season finals; support Trymbi making way for Korean support Jun.

A surprise move given that Trymbi’s arrival last summer was a huge shotcalling boost, however mid laner Humanoid has insisted that the departure won’t negatively impact the team’s in-game decision-making.

4. Team Vitality

While Vitality’s roster alone looks strong, their pickup of former MAD Lions coaches Mac and Pad could be crucial in seeing the organisation finally fight among the top in the LEC power rankings.

The staff played a crucial role in seeing MAD consistently challenge for titles and secure Worlds spots despite having a slim budget.

3. Team Heretics

It’s difficult to see a roster with Wunder, Jankos, and Perkz and not expect them to be near the top of the LEC power rankings.

Though the three may not have been at their peak levels recently, they still have the hunger to be winners again and you’d be silly to bet against them finding their old form. The bot laners Flakked and Kaiser are also former LEC champions, completing a roster filled with title-winning experience.

2. Karmine Corp

Karmine Corp’s long-awaited entry to the LEC is starting with one of the league’s most exciting rosters.

Jungler Bo has shown that, on his day, he can dominate and carry games, Upset returns as one of the league’s best bot laners, and Cabochard and Targamas have shown to be more-than-serviceable LEC players.

The question mark comes with the team’s franchise player, mid laner Saken, who failed to impress during his first LEC stint with Vitality.

1. G2 Esports

One team that won’t be shifting in LEC rankings is G2 Esports.

The side won 3/4 European titles last season, the clear best LEC team, and has kept its roster together in full.

Starting not only with the strongest team but one that isn’t building its synergy from the ground up should especially give them an edge early in the season while other sides still work things out.
