We don't have any good pictures of anyone in the top 5, so uh... here's a photo of food drinking water (and also pecks)
The new season of FPL has begun, with July challengers joining the ring. Owen "oBo" Schlatter dominates the FPL ladder once again, despite a slight hiccup last week.

|19.||Brandon "Ace" Winn||1533|

With the FPL week leading up to Fragadelphia 12, many young players such as oBo and Victor "food" Wong top the leaderboard along with MDL players such as David "Sneaky" Polster and James "hazed" Cobb.
As the player break begins as well, professional players have been appearing more in the ladder, with Keith "NAF" Markovic and Jake "Stewie2K" Yip just barely breaking into the top 20, with Stewie2K raking in 37 matches.
With it being the first week of a new month, this week also served as the first week of FPL for two new players who were promoted from FPL-C. The notorious Moldovan Marian "tyfoon" Lesnic performed well, placing 8th in his debut week. Randy "Smiley" Sandoval, on the other hand, placed in 48th with only four matches played. The full standings can be found on FACEIT's website.
FACEIT also announced that Jonathan "Jonji" Carey was named the winner of FPL NA for the month of July, with a 59% win rate.
As mentioned earlier, a new month is underway, and as is a new season of FPL-C.
|1.||Alexander "zander" Diaz||1120||$1,250 + FPL|
|2.||Hunter "koga" Allen||1074||$750 + FPL|
|3.||Jarod "Douglas" Onorato||1064||$500|
|4.||Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk||1059||$250|
|5.||Caleb "jaychancE" Davis||1056||$250|
Note: FPL-C prizes are distributed monthly, none of these players have won anything
Alexander "zander" Diaz has taken the lead by a considerable margin of 46 points and a 76% winrate. Below is Hunter "koga" Allen, followed by Jarod "Douglas" Onorato, who are both currently teamless. Next in the top 5 is Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk, who is currently on a 7 win streak, and Caleb "jaychancE" Davis, who were both mainstays in the top 10 last month.
As it is only the first week of FPL-C, these standings will change and some of these players may fall in the ladder. The full standings for FPL-C can be found on FACEIT's website.
