Weekly Round Up

The halfway mark has been passed for the ESL AU&NZ Championship league and it has produced some contrasting results compared to the FireCuda Cup, with 1More on opposite sides of the ladders. However there’s still a long way to go and anything can happen in the remaining weeks. There is a whopping 99 teams teams signed up for the Throwdown Rocket League OCE Championship with one day left to register for Oceania’s qualification path to RLCS. The deadline is tomorrow night at 11:59pm AEDT so make sure you don’t miss out. Time for the bad news unfortunately as HYPE have run their final tournament for OCE. Many thanks to all of the staff who dedicated their time to bringing our region an awesome tournament for so long.

Rankings

1 - Alpha Sydney

Drippay, Torsos, Jake, yumi_cheeseman | Nil movement

Alpha Sydney currently have not lost a competitive match since the 18th of February, over a month now. This is all against the other top sides including 2 league matches last week against Athletico. Simply put, they are a tier above right now. In ESL AU&NZ Champs they will face off against JAM and this promises to be a great contest. Can Alpha Sydney keep the streak going, or could Scylla take the opportunity in the CG FireCuda Cup? It’s almost impossible to tip against AS at the moment though. - Tibore

2 (tied) - Athletico

Dumbo, Aoe_emp, Lukorice, SnarfSnarf, Kia | Nil movement

Pushing Alpha Sydney to game 5 in the ESL Champs but going down hard 3-0 proves Athletico are still up there with the best, sticking it next to JAM in 2nd spot. Recently announcing the addition of Kia as a sub it means they have a player they can now fall back on in dire circumstances, but the core are working almost perfectly together. With RLCS qualifiers up shortly these boys are looking on hot form and are on fire to dominate through them. The key now is to put together good performances and see if they can take down the reigning star-team of OCE, then they’re in with a shot at top spot. - Nutterres

2 (tied) - JAM Gaming

MontyConnor, Bango, Express | + 1

With a few weeks of play under their belt, JAM Gaming are starting to figure out how to play with their new roster, and it’s leading them to a rise back in the power rankings. Winning ESL and taking down Masterminds are the stepping stones they need to reclaim their number 2 and start vying for that number 1 spot, but we’ll see if they can keep their form into next week. - yumi_cheeseman

4 - 1More

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

There isn’t too much to say about 1More this week. They’re still trying out their new roster and despite losing a strong player, Shadey and Ellusive are fitting into their roles well. A RLO victory and win against Scylla Esports in ESL Champs gets marred by their continual bad form running through the CGi division with a 1-3 loss to Legacy eSports. They really need to prove their consistency with this new roster, and with teams below them nipping at their heels they’ll need to play well next week to retain their position. - yumi_cheeseman

5 - Corvidae

Siki, Daze, Plitz, SSteve | Nil movement

A strong week with easy 3-0 wins over both Legacy and The Rejects in AUNZ & CyberGamer respectively means that Corvidae sit in a comfortable fifth spot and can be duly proud of themselves. Having been on a slight slump recently and requiring some good results to boost them back up, they’re looking good to push for a LAN spot in ESL and could be seen sitting nicely atop the CyberGamer rankings soon. Corvidae have now proven they can work with any combination of core so I look forward to their upcoming performances against Scylla and, yet again, Legacy. - Nutterres

6 - Trident Esports

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

Trident are currently on a tear, flying up the power rankings. Within approximately the last 2 weeks they have turned it around from struggling to hold onto 10th all the way up to 6th. They are smashing the FireCuda Cup in the 2nd division and own the last OCE HYPE victory, beating Athletico along the way. They beat Athletico and Legacy on they way to the Grand Final of ESL Go4RL, however the final against JAM didn't go so hot as they lost 1-4. If Trident can fix up their communication and rotational issues they could turn into a potential OCE RLCS contender. - Tibore

7 - Legacy eSports

Soma, Eren, GroovyGrape, Penor, ENiGMA | - 2

Legacy have suffered some very heavy defeats recently, leading to a drop down to seventh place in the power rankings for the first time this year. Losing to Corvidae in straight games in the AU&NZ Champs means that they are looking almost down and out for a LAN spot at the end, but a successful 3-1 win over 1More means they currently sit second on the Firecuda Cup ladder. These boys take on Athletico in the next round of the Champs, as well as facing Corvidae for the second week running, this time in the Firecuda cup, and means we could be seeing another upset. The Legacy core has bits to work on with RLCS qualifiers right around the corner and need to make sure their team synergy is absolutely on point to give themselves the best chance. - Nutterres

8 (tied) - The Rejects

Addzey, ORION, Greeny | - 1

The Rejects are dipping, and now is not the time to be falling down the ladder that they’ve been climbing up. A surprise loss to The Tendencies, and losses to Corvidae and 1More leave them in a bit of a rough position, but we’ve seen them take a win off 1More in the past. I’ll be eagerly watching what The Rejects do this week, as they’ve been my team to watch for a while, and they haven’t lived up to that this week. - yumi_cheeseman

8 (tied) - Masterminds

Seniaz, Toxic95, Kamii, Nerd | + 1

Masterminds are tied for the eighth spot this week on the Power Rankings, most notably picking up their first win against Scylla in the Firecuda Cup. That is their first competitive win between the AU&NZ Champs and CyberGamer leagues so gives hope for them to rise. Sadly they are taking on the red hot 1More in both leagues this coming week and will need a huge turn of fortune to beat them in the ESL League. Luckily 1More sit bottom of CyberGamer so this is the only positive Masterminds can take going into next week. Best of luck to them as they’re going to need it to stay up in the power rankings. - Nutterres

10 - Scylla Esports

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

This was not a good week for the team at Scylla. In the ESL AU&NZ Champs 1More put on a goal scoring clinic and in the CG FireCuda Cup they went 0-3 against Masterminds. Hopefully they can turn things around to where the were a few weeks ago. Their strength used to be their team synergy and they passing plays but that appears to have disappeared this week. Hopefully this was just a hiccup and they can recover. It will be a daunting week though in the leagues against a back to form Corvidae and Alpha Sydney. Scylla has 4 talented players on the roster, they will need to forget this week happened and get back to playing with style. - Tibore
