Rankings

1 - Alpha Sydney

Jake the Tyrant, Torsos, Drippay | Nil movement

Alpha Sydney are clearly still the strongest team in Oceania. Having qualified for CyberGamer through the lower bracket they may have looked like stumbling and falling straight out of the league, but recovered well and will be looking forward to their chance to get revenge over The Rejects once the season starts. This 3-man roster now has the same level of synergy as the old JAM roster and now they just have to keep it up and stick it at the top for the same amount of time. Alpha Sydney are definitely hopefuls for RLCS. - Nutterres

2 - JAM Gaming

MontyConnor, Bango, Express | Nil movement

JAM gaming, after losing SnarfSnarf has had a big set of shoes to fill. And they now have confirmed Express as their third who should fill them well! This team has the potential to be even stronger than the previous JAM Gaming Roster, but they now have 12 months of synergy to rebuild with the roster, and they’ll need to do it soon. A lack of results this week as they were trialling new members, but next week I hope they prove that they still deserve the number 2 spot. - yumi_cheeseman

3 - Athletico

Dumbo, Aoe_emp, Lukorice | Nil movement

This week Athletico went through a few moves. It was rumored Dumbo had been trying out for JAM, Lukorish decided to leave and Emp was almost left on his own. Dumbo stayed, Luko came back and we are back to where we started! I am glad to see the team back together though as they are in both the ESL and CG leagues with a good shot possibly taking out either. Hopefully back to stability this week the Athletico side can get back to their winning ways. - Tibore

4 - 1More

Cyrix, Shadey, Ellusive, Stoney, Zest | Nil movement

1More was dealt a big blow this week with Express moving to take up the 3rd spot in JAM. Cyrix and Stoney now has much if the old SSU side with them now in Shadey and Ellusive, with Zest in there as well to make it 5. They don't have long to build synergy but they are all seasoned players. Jumping straight into ESL AU&NZ Champs and CG FireCuda Cup is going to be a big test and going up against Legacy and Alpha Sydney it's not going to be an easy week. - Tibore

5 - Legacy eSports

Soma, Eren, GroovyGrape, Penor, ENiGMA | Nil movement

Legacy eSports have started their strong run back to the top with their first result in the ESL AU&NZ Champs being a clean sweep of Masterminds. Legacy will be looking forward to what should be a smooth game against 1More, whose roster changes could cause some instability. Legacy are looking good to make a jump up the Power Rankings in an attempt to get back to the top, but JAM just might hold on having now picked up Express. A good result could see them jump next week. - Nutterres

6 - Corvidae

Siki, Daze, Plitz, SSteve | Nil movement

Corvidae took out game of the week for me in the ESL AU&NZ Champs. After getting spanked in the first two games by Athletico 0-4 and 0-8 they turned the match into a comeback for the ages reverse sweeping with a 5th game OT that lasted 3m36s. This team showed absolute resilience in that comeback which was treat to watch. The never give up attitude will serve this team well moving forward as they contest the two big leagues in the OCE. - Tibore

7 - Scylla Esports

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

Scylla Esports have cemented themselves in the top 8 with entrance to both CG and ESL leagues. They still need time to work on their synergy and get to a point where they can challenge the top 6, but for now they should be happy with their results and the chance to prove themselves in the scene. That being said, they have a hard road ahead and will need to pick up some key victories next week! - yumi_cheeseman

8 - The Rejects

Addzey, ORION, Greeny | + 1

The Rejects get their first shot in a league this week in the CG FireCuda cup as they ever so slightly missed out on ESL. This week they will get to take on Legacy eSports who of late have been inconsistent so they are in with a good opportunity. They took out Sunday RLO and will be looking to keep that momentum up this week. With one of the more stable team lineups right now and all seasoned players, this team should be starting to hit their stride. - Tibore

9 - Masterminds

Seniaz, Toxic95, Kamii, Nerd | - 2

A poor loss to Legacy 3-0 in the first week of ESL wasn’t the best start, but successfully qualifying for the CyberGamer Seagate FireCuda cup has kept them in contention for the top spots. Masterminds are looking like a team who, with practice, synergy and a good attitude could definitely jump up the power rankings. These guys could just be the dark horses of ESL and CG with the chances to cause surprise upsets against some of the top teams. - Nutterres

10 - Trident Esports

Dreameh, CJCJ, Julz | Nil movement

Trident has still been struggling for consistent good results for a long time now and OverBlue has decided to move on from the team. They have secured a spot in CG’s 2nd division for the FireCuda Cup and stand a very good chance of winning that if they can at least remain at this level. They have some work to do to rise up the top 10 though. - Tibore
