1 - Alpha Sydney

Alpha Sydney come fresh off of an amazing LAN win at Throwdown Season 1 finals. Bringing home what is believed to be a cool $3500 after taking out JAM Gaming with a reverse sweep in the grand final, these boys are officially the top team in Oceania at the moment. With the recent split of JAM Gaming these boys need to perform and keep consistent results if they want to be Oceania’s hope at RLCS, otherwise they could be missing out. - Nutterres
2 - JAM Gaming

This week rings the last week of what was the longest running roster in the world, having been together for an entire year, the departure of SnarfSnarf will have left a hole in the JAM Gaming roster. While JAM have recently been the uncontended number one, they haven’t been playing enough recently to maintain their #1 when considering their 3 - 4 loss to Alpha Sydney in the Throwdown Esports Grand Finals. The big question is, how will JAM continue and will they pick up a new player who can fill the shoes going forward. - yumi_cheeseman
3 - Athletico
Dumbo, Aoe_emp, Lukorice | - 1
Athletico took out 3rd place at Throwdown in a strong 3rd place playoff match. In the Semi final though they now get to have the title of last team to be beaten by the amazing combo we will probably never see again of Monty, Bango and Snarf where they went down 0-3. There is still some work for this team to make it to the top of the rankings, but have the ability to push JAM and Alpha Sydney on their day. Look out for this team in the ESL and CG leagues as they will be a tough match for anyone playing them. - Tibore
4 - 1More
Express, Cyrix, Shadey, Stoney | - 1
1More needed a lot more at Throwdown than they did at PAX. They looked better as the day progressed, but in single elimination finals it hurt too much and they weren't able to come away with a series victory. They have now brought Shadey into the fold and I am excited to see how this works out for 1More. - Tibore
5 - Corvidae
Siki, Daze, Plitz, SSteve | + 1
Corvidae haven’t been playing much in recent times. When they do show up, they tend to do quite well, but they need to start putting on more performances, as this week, they only move up due to the poor performances of other teams. We know they can play well on a given day, so hopefully they play a lot more next week. - yumi_cheeseman
6 - Legacy eSports

A disappointing week for Legacy, with losses to Magnitude in HYPE and a solid pickup team in ESL. They’ve been an off and on again team of recent times, able to put in a good week of play, and then bounce back down again with a bad week. We do know that they are capable of more, and I’m expecting them to find consistency as the region heads towards the RLCS qualifiers. - yumi_cheeseman
