With 22 of the planet’s best professional League of Legends teams currently in Shanghai for this year’s LoL Worlds, China’s hardest ranked server – dubbed the ‘Super Server’ – has been taken over by pro players looking to stave off quarantine boredom.
While G2’s midlaner Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther was the first to hit Challenger rank on the Super Server last week, he has now been overtaken by two other foreign pros – both of which have sailed past the milestone figure of 1000LP.
Caps currently sits on 827LP, according to Lolvvv, but he has been relegated to third place by Fnatic’s toplaner Gabriel ‘Bwipo’ Rau. With 1008LP, the Belgian is strides ahead of his LEC rival. However, even Bwipo’s insane form in solo queue has been outdone. At the top of the charts for Worlds pros on the Super Server is Team SoloMid’s Swedish support Erik ‘Treatz’ Wessén, with 1068LP and a very healthy 60.9% win ratio at the time of writing.
With all players and staff having to isolate themselves in their hotel rooms on arriving in Shanghai, they’ve had a lot of time to kill. Playing against China’s top LoL players (and each other) seems to be the most common way to stave off boredom and keep sharp.

The Super Server is reserved only for highly-skilled players, and you can only create an account for it if you have another account that is Diamond 1 or above on another ranked server.
The Worlds play-in stage kicks off this week on Friday, September 25 with MAD Lions vs INTZ, so we’ll soon be able to see if all that Super Server grinding pays off.
