Rankings

1 - Alpha Sydney

Jake the Tyrant, Torsos, Drippay | + 3

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

MontyConnor, Bango | - 1

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

Soma, Eren, GroovyGrape, Penor, ENiGMA | - 1

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

7 - Masterminds

Seniaz, Toxic95, Kamii, Nerd | New

Masterminds have found little success so far in the ESL Championships, being the only team to take home a solid 0-3 loss. Losing out to Legacy, but still managing to make their name and qualify for the CyberGamer Firecuda Cup. These boys will be looking to make a strong start next week, with games against Alpha Sydney and the first week of CyberGamer at the forefront of their minds. - Nutterres

8 (tied) - Scylla Esports

C.J.M, Daisu, Luis | + 1

Scylla’s decision to give Luis a chance is really paying off for them right now. He has slotted into the side beautifully and the team plays between all players are brilliant to watch. They have made the ESL AU & NZ champs and the CG FireCuda Cup. It's going to be tough competition but this team that is really fresh as a combination could really make a splash. - Tibore

8 (tied) - The Rejects

Addzey, ORION, Greeny | New

The Rejects are looking strong, like real strong. For a team that only just formed, with three players who have been top shelf during OCE Rocket League’s history, they look great on paper, and their performances have matched a solid top 8 team. All that Rejects need to do is get the practice in, and build on their synergy, and they’ll start challenging the teams above them. - yumi_cheeseman

10 - Trident Esports

ObeBluee, Dreameh, CJCJ, Julz | - 2

Trident are holding on to their spot in the top 10 and there are some teams that are about to come knocking. This team has been 6th to 10th on the PR for so long have have unfortunately still been unable to find that next level. This team used to make it to the semi final of ESL Go4RL almost every week, hopefully we will see this team come back into form soon. - Tibore

Teams to watch:

Nutterres: The Rejects

Tibore: White Cloud

yumi_cheeseman: Masterminds

n0lsk1: The Rejects
