Returning champions Empire defend the top spot after seven weeks of play in the Raidcall Dota 2 League. Teams continue to battle it out for a spot in the top 4 and a chance at the $10,000 prize pool.

The second season of the Raidcall Dota 2 League continues in its seventh week. Let’s take a look at the standings as we pass the halfway point.

Returning champions Empire lead the pack with 5 wins in 6 matches, followed closely by Fnatic with 5 wins in 7 matches. Empire is looking strong coming off victories in their matches against No Tidehunter, Team Liquid, and TI2 runner-up Na’Vi. 3rd place team No Tidehunter edges out 4th place Team Liquid. Both have 4 wins so far, but No Tidehunter has managed this in 6 matches compared to Team Liquid’s 7.

Dignitas is biting at the heels of the top 4 with 3 wins in 4 matches, followed closely by Mousesports, who sport 3 wins in their 5 matches. There is a three way tie for 7th place, as dd.Dota, Na’Vi, and Virtus Pro each have 2 wins in their 5 matches so far.

Tournament organizers Evil Geniuses come in 10th, having taken 1 of their 3 matches so far. Re-Defining Madness, formerly mTw, come in at 11th place, winless so far in 3 matches. Finally, 3D Max is still searching for a win after 6 matches played, bringing them in at 12th place.
