During the first weeks of FPL’s relaunch in North America, MarkE dominated the league for several weeks. MarkE’s win this week marks his first FPL victory in nearly two months, last winning FPL in the second week of April.

While there is no team domination in the rankings once again, Freedom 35’s Victor “food” Wong and Jonathan “Jonji” Carey take the second and third places respectively.

Lower in the rankings, there are less European players compared to last week’s FPL standings, but two Danes still remain. Fragster’s Ismail “refrezh” Ali and OpTic’s Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer sit down in the rankings in 27th and 43th respectively with only five matches shared between them. The full standings can be found on FACEIT’s website.

On the lower floor of FPL-C, the May season has wrapped up with the standings remaining almost identical to last week. While Alexander "zander" Diaz did overtake Ben "ben1337" Smith in the rankings, the two placements are identical in their prizes, making the change negligable.

Rank Name Points Prize
1. United States Ryan "Winsum" Johns 1348 $1,250 + FPL
2. United States Josh "JoshRT" Lee 1272 $750 + FPL
3. United States Hunter "koga" Allen 1186 $500
4. United States Alexander "zander" Diaz 1180 $250
5. United States Ben "ben1337" Smith 1178 $250

Ryan "Winsum" Johns and Josh "JoshRT" Lee have now qualified for FPL, which they will begin playing next week. 

Winsum was previously a part of Freedom 35, before being swapped out by Jonji. Winsum had also been invited to the FPL Qualifier in the previous season of FPL-C after placing second. JoshRT qualifies as the only member of Team Prospects in FPL. JoshRT was previously in ESEA's Rank S, before being removed in April 2017 for unknown reasons.

Below ben1337 in the rankings sits Randy “Smiley” Sandoval, with 173 matches played and a 7 win streak. But with a 50% win rate and low 14 points, Smiley just barely misses a fifth place finish and sits comfortably in a 6th place spot. The full standings can also be found on FACEIT's website.
