Weekly Round Up

It’s finally here! The Oceanic Series RLCS qualifier has been officially announced where the top 2 attend the World Championship. Sign ups will open between 10am AEDT March 19th to 11:59pm AEDT March 26th. In light of the news it seems like the shuffling is slowing down to a halt. Still some minor changes, however the expectation is that more teams will be forming rather than splitting up or players leaving. Exciting times ahead as general community participation is growing with anticipation of the largest tournament in Oceanic Rocket League history. On a side note, the Power Rankings committee have decided to change the ranking week we base our releases off. Instead of Monday-Sunday, it will now be Thursday-Wednesday, to better reflect the current climate of the scene.

Rankings

1 - Alpha Sydney

Drippay, Jake the Tyrant, Torsos | Nil movement

Steadfast, resilient, infallible. Alpha Sydney with a flawless extended week, undefeated across all events and beating 7 out of the other 9 teams in the top 10. The powerhouse is utterly untouchable right now, and with their rivals JAM Gaming recently undergoing a significant roster change it’s unlikely that they’ll be facing challenge any time soon. - n0lsk1

2 - Athletico

Dumbo, Aoe_emp, Lukorice | + 1

Athletico have had a good string of strong results over the last few weeks, without even having to use SnarfSnarf as a fill-in. With an emphatic double smashing of Scylla as well as beating the slightly disappointing Masterminds, they will hold the second spot on the PR for this week. They will most definitely have some stronger opposition coming up in the next few weeks of CyberGamer and ESL AU&NZ so will have a lot to work on should they start to slip at any stage. - Nutterres

3 - JAM Gaming

MontyConnor, Bango, Express | - 1

This was a tough decision as Athletico and Jam are very close right now. Jam are still coming together as a cohesive group with Express as the new addition. They are still playing consistently well, just the loss to Trident tipped the scales for me. They are yet to have an opportunity against the OCE powerhouses with this new lineup except with the 2-4 loss to Alpha Sydney in the Go4RL Cup. Next week they face MastermindsGC in the ESL AU&NZ Championship. They have a rough run home though in the last 3 weeks with Alpha Sydney, Athletico and Legacy. This is a team that should be present at the finals, just what seed they take through is the question. - Tibore

4 - 1More

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

With Express leaving for JAM Gaming, it seems the ex-SSU eSports roster is making a silent comeback under the banner of 1More. Nonetheless the partnership of Cyrix and Shadey is a naturally formidable one and while it may take some time before working through any instabilities, don’t expect it to take very long. Aside from Alpha Sydney, they only showed a weakness against The Rejects this ranking period, losing unexpectedly. As time goes on they’ll be able to iron these issues out. - n0lsk1

5 (tied) - Legacy eSports

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

Legacy are sitting rather nicely in 5th position, even with some slightly lacklustre performances over the last couple of weeks. Losing to 1More and Alpha Sydney in the AU&NZ Champs leaves them sitting mid table for ESL, however strong performances in Cybergamer beating out The Rejects and the lower ranked Masterminds prove that they are still a strong team on their day. With RLCS registrations announced I would be expecting these boys to really pull something out of the bag and hopefully begin impressing us once again. - Nutterres

5 (tied) - Corvidae

Siki, Daze, Plitz, SSteve | Nil movement

Being tied for 5th is quite respectable and deserved for Corvidae, considering how many game 5’s they’ve sent us into over the last few weeks. Really starting to pump it up a bit more whilst using both Ssteve and the full core, Corvidae are looking like they may be able to do some serious damage to teams like Alpha Sydney, Legacy, 1More and will be looking to cause some great upsets later into the ESL & CyberGamer leagues. Corvidae will also have some upset potential with the chances of knocking out some top teams in the RLCS qualifiers as well. - Nutterres

7 - The Rejects

Addzey, ORION, Greeny | + 1

The Rejects were previously so close to making it to the ESL League losing out to 1More 3-0 for the final spot. Facing the new line up of 1More in the CG FireCuda Cup though allowed The Rejects to get one back and swept with a 3-0. They didn't play outside of the FireCuda Cup as a full team this ranking period but there is no doubt this team is looking better together each week. Next week in the FireCuda they have Corvidae which promises to be a great contest. - Tibore

8 - Trident Esports

Dreameh, CJCJ, Julz, Madz, SToRMCLoRD | + 2

An incredibly strong week of results from the team that has been lacklustre of late; taking out both Legacy eSports and JAM Gaming in the same tournament to win HYPE. In addition to the resounding performance, they followed it up with a great run in the ESL Go4RocketLeague, taking down Scylla Esports, only to lose to eventual winners Alpha Sydney in the semi finals. It was their only loss this week, so the two spot jump is very well deserved. - n0lsk1

9 (tied) - Masterminds

Seniaz, Toxic95, Kamii, Nerd | Nil movement

MastermindsGC have looked good recently however they haven’t been able to close out games of late. They have not had a good run in the leagues so far either mostly having to play top 3 PR teams. Next week against JAM this won't change but they do have a chance against Scylla in the CG FireCuda Cup. This will be an opportunity for both teams to get a win on the board and get their campaigns on track. - Tibore

9 (tied) - Scylla Esports

C.J.M, Daisu, Luis, PanzerShrek | - 3

Scylla have had some extremely disappointing results recently, struggling to pick up even single games in best of 5 series, sitting right at the bottom of both leagues along with Masterminds. With all the roster changes in the past I’d be expecting these boys to be working a lot better together but other than a few stunning team plays, they just can’t string together a strong series against these top teams. A lot of hard work and extreme effort needs to be put in by these boys if they want to go anywhere, or they could easily be the only team in both the CyberGamer & ESL leagues to drop out of the top 10 in the Power Rankings. - Nutterres
