Team WE tops Suning to gain ground in LPL standings

Team WE moved into a share of sixth place in the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) spring season standings with a 2-1 victory over Suning on Thursday.

Vici Gaming ascended into a tie for 12th place with a 2-0 win over LGD Gaming, and Dominus Esports posted a 2-0 victory over Rogue Warriors.

Week 4 continues Friday with three matches:

--FunPlus Phoenix vs. Oh My God

--LNG Esports vs. eStar

--Royal Never Give Up vs. JD Gaming

The China-based LPL shut down after the Jan. 19 matches due to the spread of the coronavirus, but it resumed March 9 in an online-only format. Players are competing from their teams' headquarters, but they were required to go through a 14-day quarantine before they were allowed to resume play.

The top eight teams from the spring season will advance to the single-elimination playoffs. All playoff matches will be best-of-five, with the winner clinching a berth in the 2020 Mid-Season Invitational, which will include the top teams from all of the League of Legends regions.
