Weekly Round Up
The region saw the biggest turnout of teams to date for the massive day that was the Throwdown Rocket League OCE Qualifiers, with 106 teams signing up. At the end of the day however it’s the same teams that qualified for league play that did so for the ESL AU&NZ Championships. Alpha Sydney secured the top position in the penultimate week and they’ll be looking to do the same next week as well in the FireCuda Cup. April is shaping up to being the biggest month yet in Oceanic Rocket League history.

1 - Alpha Sydney
Drippay, Torsos, Jake, ENiGMA | Nil movement
No news is definitely good news for Alpha Sydney. Still yet to lose a game with their core roster for a month and a half, they don’t look like budging from the top spot any time soon. These boys are probably Oceania’s best hope coming into RLCS league play and are possibly the only team I could put money on to make the recently announce LAN in LA this June. - Nutterres
2 - JAM Gaming
MontyConnor, Bango, Express | Nil movement
Mostly dominant yet with slight cracks in their armour, the side of JAM Gaming are like a cuddly grizzly bear. They showed a few weaknesses against Corvidae in the TRLOC Open Qualifiers, falling to the lower ranked side in a closely contested series. Nonetheless they have proven to be the stronger side against Sand Castle 3 times over the last two weeks, securing their spot above them. They’ll need to work on those weaknesses though if they want to keep the number 2 spot as there is massive potential for a top end power ranking shake up in the coming weeks. - n0lsk1
3 - Sand Castle
Dumbo, SnarfSnarf, Aoe_emp, Kia | Nil movement
With recent movement in the core lineup for Sand Castle as well as having ditched the Athletico branding, these boys have had a shaky start. With close games and even having to reverse sweep Trident in the RLOC Qualifiers to guarantee their qualification they have just slipped through as the third placed team on the PR, but need to keep up their strong performances to guarantee they stay up. - Nutterres
4 - 1More
Cyrix, Shadey, Ellusive, Zest | Nil movement
A convincing performance in the TRLOC Open Qualifiers sees 1More in their third league. The synergy between the ex-SSU eSports members plus the Cyrix & Shadey combination is shaping up to being one of tightest partnerships in OCE. Their consistent results can be attributed to their stability; they have shown to be the more stable team out of both JAM Gaming and Sand Castle. However the strength of their results in recent times have not been enough to topple their rivals this week. Keep a close eye though, if they keep it up it won’t be long before they overtake them. - n0lsk1
5 - Corvidae
Siki, Daze, Plitz, SSteve | Nil movement
Another team that’s been very impressive of late, most impressive of which was taking down JAM Gaming in an epic series in the TRLOC Open Qualifiers. It’s been a steady rise for the Corvidae side since the beginning of the year, perhaps even somewhat managing to fly under the radar. As it stands now however they are third place in both the ESL AU&NZ Championship League and the FireCuda Cup. No doubt they’re a team to be feared, even when playing with their substitute they can produce similarly convincing results. - n0lsk1
6 - Legacy eSports
Soma, Eren, GroovyGrape, Penor | Nil movement
They’ve been a bit rocky recently, not performing to the level that they would like nor what we are used to. Legacy are still able to grind out the results though, which speaks to their experience as competitive Rocket League veterans. Personally their performance against Cl4rity in the TRLOC Open Qualifiers was in a word, concerning. However I have no doubt that they’re working on it and will aim to close the gap between themselves and Corvidae. - n0lsk1
7 - Trident Esports
Dreameh, CJCJ, Julz, Madz, SToRMCLoRD | Nil movement
Unfortunately, it’s been an absolute nightmare week for Trident with some rough losses in the TRLOC Open Qualifiers meant that they just missed out on league play. With arguably the hardest run for qualification, they managed to dispense with The Rejects but failed to close out their resounding performance against Sand Castle; in the end falling to a reverse sweep. Similarly against Masterminds, even after a 9-0 game they couldn’t secure the win in over them, being ultimately eliminated. Nerves seemingly getting the best of them, hopefully they’ll be able to bounce back as they’re still a quality side. - n0lsk1
8 - Masterminds
Kamii, Nerd, Requiem, Seniaz | Nil movement
Masterminds have been working hard with their new roster recently and it’s paying off. Qualifying for league play in the TRLOC Open Qualifiers resisting the might of Trident Esports to do so. It’s too late to turn around their run in the ESL AU&NZ Championship League but now they can focus on bringing their improvement to Throwdown’s league play; they’ll be aiming to reach higher than their current 5th position in the FireCuda cup. Not a side to be underestimated. - n0lsk1
9 - Scylla Esports
C.J.M, Daisu, Luis, PanzerShrek, Outlast | + 2
Scylla have barely scraped their way back into the top 10 this week, and most likely just for the fact they qualified for RLCS league play. Scylla have had some extremely shaky results but successfully managed to pick up their first win of the CyberGamer season with a solid 3-0 demolition of The Rejects. Sadly this is possibly their only positive result and they’ll need to keep improving from here if they want to stand a chance during the RLCS league play. Scylla are entirely out of LAN contention for ESL and have very little chance of CyberGamer, so need to focus on RLCS right now. - Nutterres
10 - B Team
ObeBluee, ZeN, Noizee, Chai | Nil movement
The new side managed to make it to the final round in the TRLOC Open Qualifiers against JAM Gaming, unfortunately falling short against the Oceanic powerhouse. They did show up in a big way though, forcing JAM to step up to shut them out; B Team’s aggressive style of play initially overwhelming the more experienced side. If they can zone in on that and make it their own they’ll be climbing the ladder in no time. - n0lsk1
