1 - Alpha Sydney
Drippay, Torsos, Jake, yumi_cheeseman, ENiGMA | Nil movement
Once again the indomitable side of Alpha Sydney reigns supreme. The closest they have come to losing a series however was this week against JAM Gaming, taking it to the final game in overtime, but Alpha still managed to pull off the victory. There seems to be no end in sight to their dominance. Their only enemy now is complacency. - n0lsk1
2 - JAM Gaming
MontyConnor, Bango, Express | Nil movement
Being the only team to look like pushing Alpha Sydney to the edge of their throne, JAM have sat steady in 2nd spot and are proving they are still a strong core. Taking out the ESL Monthly from January also helps to boost their confidence with some lovely Monthly Champ titles and enjoying the undefeated run to the grand final as well. Now all these lads have to do is turn up this Sunday to kick some ass and ensure they qualify for the RLCS Group play. - Nutterres
3 - Sand Castle
Dumbo, Lukorice, SnarfSnarf, Aoe_emp, Kia | - 1
With the surprise of the week the team left Athletico and went back to their previous name of Sand Castle. SnarfSnarf had been playing up in the main core for a few weeks now and that move sees Aoe_emp to sub. The 0-4 loss to JAM this week was the telling result which saw them move down to 3rd from equal second. But they did also lose to Legacy in The ESL Champs which didn't help either. They looked a lot stronger against The Rejects in the CG FireCuda though with a strong 3-1 win. This team is looking good and with 4 top tier players they have a deep roster. - Tibore
4 - 1More
Cyrix, Shadey, Ellusive, Zest | Nil movement
1More had a steady week. In the two leagues they had Masterminds twice which they ended up going 6-0. This team is still undefeated in the ESL Champs going 5-0 so far. They face up against the biggest test though next week in Alpha Sydney. The winner will likely take through top seed into the finals which will be on the side stage at IEM Sydney. - Tibore
5 - Corvidae
Siki, Daze, Plitz, SSteve | Nil movement
Whilst they haven’t had too many tournaments next to their names, they’re picking up the wins where it counts. Having now beaten Legacy twice in succession, with 3-0’s in ESL and a calm, collected 3-2 in CyberGamer, they sit nicely in 5th spot, still trailing behind the teams they truly struggle to beat, whilst sitting ahead of those that were slain before them. Corvidae could stand a good chance at breaking into the top 4 with some promising results against names like Sand Castle and JAM if they possibly can. - Nutterres
6 - Legacy eSports
Soma, Eren, GroovyGrape, Penor | + 1
Legacy look better each and every week. The core is playing better together and they are finally getting back into the groove of their passing plays. GroovyGrape is also looking to be back to form as the main goal scorer mopping up any scraps that end up near the net. They got a great result of 3-0 against Sand Castle in the ESL AU&NZ Champs and ended up just being edged out by Corvidae in a back and forth thriller in the CG Firecuda Cup. The top teams are going to have to watch out for Legacy even more now. - Tibore
7 - Trident Esports
Dreameh, CJCJ, Julz, Madz, SToRMCLoRD | - 1
Not much to be said about them this week as they did not compete; their placing this week based solely on their success in previous weeks. That won’t hold them for long however, they’ll need to come back as soon as possible with the show of strength that in recent times impressed us so greatly. - n0lsk1
8 - Masterminds
Kamii, Nerd, Requiem, Seniaz, Toxic95 | Nil movement
Masterminds sit at a still 8th position, having made a few recent changes to their core lineup and how they are aiming to play as a team. With Kamii set up as the captain and Seniaz moving almost entirely away from the team, they looked promising against 1More in ESL, but were still unable to pick up a game. Once this new core lineup has spent a bit more time together, they’ll definitely be a mainstay in the top 8. One of their biggest challenges right now would be against Trident, but we still need to see it happen to really determine where Masterminds should be sitting. - Nutterres
9 - The Rejects
Addzey, ORION, Greeny | - 1
The Rejects have not been playing too often recently. They have only really been competing in the CG Firecuda Cup. Hanging out at 1 win and 3 losses they are in big danger of missing out on the finals. Last week in their match against Sand Castle they looked amazing for the 2nd game in the match but that's all they could manage. They couldn't find the goals they needed but it is always going to be tough going up against Sand Castle. If they can get a some wins on the board they might just be able to push through but they will likely have to win all 3 remaining matches. - Tibore
10 - B Team
ObeBluee, ZeN, Noizee, Chai | New
This is not the first time ObeBluee, ZeN & Noizee have made the top 10 of the power rankings, but the first time they’ve broken in as the B-Team, and boy are they looking strong. With notable wins over Scylla as well as extremely close losses to teams like JAM and 1More in previous weeks, they’re extremely deserving of this top spot. The only team that looks like knocking them back out of the top 10 is Scylla, and even then they’ll be requiring some outstanding performances. B Team just need to keep playing strong and they can easily hold out at the lower end of the top 10. - Nutterres
Teams to watch:
Nutterres: B Team
