Weekly Round Up
The OCE shuffle goes on as teams and players continue to run around like headless chooks in a washing machine stuck in a hurricane. When the dust settles there will be only two teams in the regular top 10 that have not made core changes: Alpha Sydney and Sand Castle (now Scylla Esports). The top 2 teams now have the opportunity to pull away from rest as they sort themselves out and work out the kinks. Hopefully it settles sooner rather than later before the gap draws too wide.

1 - Alpha Sydney
Drippay, Torsos, Jake, ENiGMA | Nil movement
Alpha Sydney always has some fleeting moments of failure, it’s a real enigma why it happens, but this week they took a 1 - 2 loss to Masterminds. Despite the loss, they are still the strongest team in the region, and they’ll be biding their time for the next on season before we see Alpha Sydney step it up a notch. - yumi_cheeseman
2 - Sand Castle
Dumbo, Aoe_emp, SnarfSnarf | + 1
Sand Castle had their best week in a while, winning both Pale Horse and ESL (in a full tournament clean sweep). Granted they didn’t have to verse anyone else in the top 4 to make it, it’s still a great result. With the recent pickup of a new organisation, it may be the support they need to take it to another level and vie for that #1 position - yumi_cheeseman
3 - JAM Gaming
MontyConnor, Express | - 1
Type F for Bango, after being with JAM Gaming for more than a year, he’s taken a break to be able to complete his studies. This leaves JAM with the unfortunate task of looking for a new teammate, and for this week that was OverZer0. Not all news is bad, since Bango was busy with Year 12, the new roster member should allow JAM Gaming to begin practicing a lot more, and it’s scary to think that they’ll be able to do with a full week’s scrim schedule. - yumi_cheeseman
4 - The Other Team
Cyrix, ellusive, Siki | Nil movement
It’s great to see Siki, picked up for the eponymously named “The Other Team”. He should fit in with the midfield dominated play that Cyrix and ellusive bring, and we saw that reflected in their results, not losing a single game this week! Granted, they also didn’t play a single game this week, but as an old guard team of the region, they keep their fourth spot above the teams below who only just newly formed. - yumi_cheeseman
5 - Masterminds
Kamii, Kia, Requiem | + 1
Another fresh set of faces for Masterminds, this is the fourth iteration of the team we’ve seen, and with newly picked up Zen, they’ve been able to get some great results, including a 2 - 1 victory against Alpha Sydney. They play fast, get good challenges and put their opponents on the back foot, for a new team it indicates that they’ve got the ability to grow into a group that can challenge the top 4, and that’s always exciting. - yumi_cheeseman
6 - SSU eSports
