Weekly Round Up
The Power Rankings are back! It returns after a short hiatus from a lack of stable teams during the off season. It may have taken a while but now that teams are settled it’s more competitive than ever.
We’re halfway through the third season of Throwdown and in the latter stages of the second season of the ESL AU&NZ Championship, and we’ve seen a shift in power over the last few weeks. Billy Fan Club (formerly Alpha Sydney) are in a slump at the moment and have taken a sharp fall in the rankings. On the other hand Legacy’s new roster has been performing extremely well of late; they’re currently the highest they’ve been in the Power Rankings since they last held the number one spot. JAM Gaming are in prime position and have been holding strong since they added Shadey to their line up.

1 - JAM Gaming
Montyconnor, Express, Shadey | Nil movement
JAM Gaming have done well to hold a full roster since we stopped writing up the PR a few weeks ago, making their way to the top for this week. Finally beating out Billy Fan Club for the first time in a few months to take the top spot, it’s been done with ease, winning the majority of games they’ve played and guaranteeing themselves a spot in the AUNZ invitational. If these boys are able to make it through the invitational and get to the LAN in Sydney they have a very good chance of hitting the jackpot and taking home the top share of $7,500. - Nutterres
2 - Legacy eSports
Soma, Plitz, ZeN | + 2
Legacy have exploded up the power rankings and haven’t seen a second place since last year. Soma’s new team mates in Plitz (ex-Corvidae) and Zen (ex-Masterminds) are proving to be a great fit and they have been showing rapid improvement as the roster can finally stabilised after the departure or Eren (leaving competitive) and GroovyGrape (break for school commitments). In the last fortnight they have had victories over every other team in the top 10 besides JAM, earning 2nd spot on the ladder with force. They are eager for opportunities to face JAM and prove that once again a Soma lead Legacy is worthy of number one. - Tibore
3 - Scylla Esports
Dumbo, Aoe_emp, SnarfSnarf, Daisu | Nil movement
It’s been touch and go the last couple weeks for Scylla with Dumbo being away temporarily. Despite a series of mixed results Daisu has been holding down the fort; comfortably beating The Other Team while receiving a heavy loss to Legacy eSports. In a period where anyone can beat everyone, it will be interesting to see what Scylla can produce with a full strength line up. - n0lsk1
4 - The Other Team
Cyrix, ellusive, Siki | + 2
The Other Team have been making a great name for themselves in the scene since forming, sitting in the fourth spot on the PR for this week. Looking strong and ensuring that they continue with dominating performances could be seeing them sent to the LAN in August. If they’re able to pull it off it won’t be the first time we see Cyrix and Ellusive on LAN but this time round they’ll be out for vengeance. - Nutterres
5 (tied) - Billy Fan Club
Drippay, Torsos, Jake, ENiGMA | - 3
Lets just call these last few weeks a hiccup for the Billy Fan Club (ex-Alpha Sydney side). This team was basically unbeatable in OCE all year, even taking some wins in the International RLCS finals. After the name change things seem to be a little off for them though, struggling for what they are capable of in Throwdown S3 and ESL AU&NZ Champs so far. This weekend is now the real test for if they are their old selves. They are desperate for wins in Throwdown and 4 spots are open for the ESL LAN finals and they will be looking to prove they are capable. Recent losses to teams they will likely face such as Legacy, JAM, Scylla and The Other Team will hopefully be forgotten as they look to prove that this is just a minor slump for them. - Tibore
5 (tied) - Pale Horse eSports
Kamii, Kia, CJCJ, Julz, xkorez | Nil movement
Just picked up by Pale Horse, ex-You See Me have been looking very strong, especially when using a full core. Even better for these boys is that using their subs they look almost the same. Coming third in the most recent AUNZ cup they have solidified and guaranteed their spot in the invitational and assuming they can pull out strong performances this Sunday we might just see some beautiful faces on LAN. These boys can easily keep rising in the PR but definitely need to keep some positive performances at the front of our minds. - Nutterres
7 - Team Skyfire
Addzey, CJM, ORION | Nil movement
Addzey & Orion have stuck together as the strong core of Team Skyfire and have picked up CJM to help bolster the attack. Picking up 7th seed for the ESL AUNZ invitational this coming Sunday, these boys will be looking to impress under the Team Skyfire name, and what better way than to make the first LAN that comes around? If they’re successful it would look to be one of the top 4 to fall victim to these boys. I look forward to seeing what they bring back to the scene. - Nutterres
8 - Feint
Flawe, Myst, Tulendeena, Erit | + 1
The ever illusive team of Feint lead by veteran Flawe have been in and out of the competitive Rocket League scene for quite some time, but whenever they’re returned they’ve always managed to kick up a storm. Bursting back into play by beating Billy Fan Club, and holding their own against JAM Gaming and Scylla Esports. With his long time teammate Myst and new recruit Tulendeena they are absolutely capable of slaying the OCE giants. They’ll have a chance to prove just that in the ESL AU&NZ Invitational Cup this week, having qualified 8th overall. - n0lsk1
9 - Conspiracy ESC
Slurpee, Hectic, WallcottsPace, Triggsy | + 1
Having left the Pale Horse: Shire name and being immediately picked up by the Conspiracy Org, these boys have been playing rather strongly. Sitting now in 9th place on the rankings they’ll be looking for strong results and possibly the Mockit Championship Series to make their name known. Sadly they miss out on the ESL invitational and a chance at their share of $7500 but if they keep working hard they can definitely be pushing the top 5 to their limits. - Nutterres
10 - Leftovers
Outlast, SSteve, Sam, Noizee | New
The Leftovers come in as a new entrant into the PR rankings this week and will debut at 10th but I believe this team will be contesting top 8 and higher very quickly. This team has 4 thoroughly established players from the OCE RL Scene. If this team can stick together the potential for big things exists. - Tibore
