On this week’s edition of the Leaderboard, our hosts dive into the latest League of Legends patch, discuss this year’s edition of the Capcom Pro Tour, and take on a viewbotting controversy on Twitch.

The League Championship Series has only one week still to be played out, with  Cloud9 and Counter Logic Gaming battling for a place near the top of the standings while Team Liquid struggles to claw its way back into the playoff race. The story is much the same in Europe, with H2K and Fnatic fighting at the top while Elements and Roccat trying to salvage disappointing seasons.

The race has been made all the more exciting by the latest patch to the game, which has inspired the use of a variety of champions who hadn't previously seen much if any action in competitive use.

Meanwhile, the Capcom Pro Tour got off to a cracking start this month with events held all over the world. The most notable competition took place in Altanta, Georgia at Final Round, the first major tournament of this year’s tour schedule. Our hosts break down the results there and consider how the $500,000 prize pool for the tour has already begun to change competitive Street Fighter.
