Rankings

1 - JAM Gaming

MontyConnor, Express, shadey | Nil movement

JAM Gaming had a quiet week, but they woke up to take revenge on long term rivals, Billy Fan Club. After being knocked down to the lower bracket by them last week in ESL, they’ve come back up to take them down 3 - 1 in Throwdown, and have secured 1st seed in the finals, which means they’re guaranteed at least $2000. JAM Gaming are showing a lot of potential and with a clean up of their play, they’ll be able to steadily hold onto the top spot for weeks to come. - yumi_cheeseman

2 - Scylla Esports

Dumbo, aoe_emp, SnarfSnarf, Daisu | + 4

Scylla have their core back and it’s shining through well. Taking out the Vapour Masters by beating Billy Fan Club twice, as well as the straight 3-0 over Legacy in Throwdown league play guaranteed these boys 2nd spot. Jumping up 4 spots is clearly showing improvements and Dumbo is obviously back and refreshed, but not lacking in the slightest. These boys seem like one of the only real challenges that JAM could have to face and they definitely won’t want to face them whilst they’re on such a roll. - Nutterres

3 - Billy Fan Club

Drippay, Torsos, Jake, ENiGMA | Nil movement

Having fallen short to the revived core of Scylla twice in the Vapour masters, as well as dropping to JAM in the final week of Throwdown, Billy Fan Club aren’t looking stunning, but are definitely still sticking it with the top 4. With Billy Fan Club now able to look forward to the LAN Finals of ESL as well as Throwdown finals, maybe they’ll be looking at picking up a new org and getting right back on schedule? I’m sure the whole scene is hoping to see an improvement from these boys as they’re one of the teams that makes up the regular top 3. - Nutterres

4 - Pale Horse eSports

Kamii, Kia, CJCJ, Julz, xkorez | Nil movement

This is a team I have been severely underestimating in the last few weeks. They sit equal top of the Throwdown Challenge Ladder, they qualified for ESL AU&NZ Champs LAN Finals, they beat Scylla and The Other Team when it mattered the most. This is a team that can still be a little inconsistent which can be expected as there aren't many teams that run with 5 players. Sometimes they end up better with a sub in like their last match against The Other Team in Throwdown. Which Pale Horse will turn up on the day? I do not know, but expect excitement as anything could happen. - Tibore

5 - The Other Team

Cyrix, ellusive, Siki, Requiem | - 3

The Other Team did not have a good week. Only playing 2 power ranked tournaments going down to Pale Horse 2-3 in Throwdown and Conspiracy ESC 2-3 in ESL Go4RL. In the previous week they were perfect, this week cracks appeared. The 3 place drop is harsh however due to the top 2-6 being so close right now it was a tough decision. The Other Team for me just had a shaky week and will be back in force, ESL Champs LAN is just around the corner and there are 3 players that will be looking to improve upon their finishes at the previous ESL Champs finals at IEM, when Cyrix and ellusive were 1More (3rd) and Siki was Corvidae (2nd). Look for the fire to return in the coming weeks. - Tibore

6 - Legacy eSports

Soma, Plitz, ZeN | - 1

Legacy eSports have certainly finished their honeymoon period, denoted by scoring just 1 single goal in tournament play this week. Their period to dominate the competition is over, and now it’s a sign for them that they need to grow their consistency. We’ve seen the potential of the players, we know they have what it takes to challenge the top, but now it’s up them to put in the hard work and dedicate the time if they want to have a chance to make RLCS Season 4. - yumi_cheeseman

7 - The Moist Kites

Spiral, Curto, Seniaz, Decka | + 3

With a few promising results The Moist Kites have have made a promising jump up the 7th place this week. Taking out the 2KF1 on Tuesday, following up with a 4th place at Vapour Masters including good wins over Conspiracy and Skyfire, the boys in this team are starting to make their name known. If they’re able to keep up the positive results and stay in the top 4 of most tournaments they play, they’re guaranteed to remain top 10. - Nutterres

8 - YAES

Addzey, CJM, ORION | - 1

A quiet week sees the lads drop a spot in the rankings. Despite the minor setback of the unfortunate dissolution of the Skyfire organisation, the good news is through the bonds of friendship the team is sticking together. Hopefully over the next couple weeks they’ll show a little more presence in the upcoming tournaments and get their spot back. - n0lsk1

9 - Conspiracy ESC

Slurpee, Hectic, WallcottsPace, Triggsy | Nil movement

Conspiracy still sit just inside the top 10 and will have to pull through a strong week to keep themselves comfortable. Only managing second place in the ESL Weekly whilst beating The Other Team, but losing to a PUG team of Dibble, Golde and Turtlyx it signals that they’re able to stand up to what should be tougher opponents, but those lacking in game plan may come as a challenge. Needless to say they’re still a strong opponent to face and could easily be brushing shoulders with the Top 6 if they can pull out their strength in more clutch situations. - Nutterres

10 - Feint

Flawe, Myst, Tulendeena, Erit | - 2

It's been a lacklustre week from Feint, only participating in the ESL Go4RL and despite losing to the eventual winners, it still left a little to be desired considering the calibre of this team. Much like YAES hopefully these guys can show a little more presence next week, get some solid results on the board and look to climb back up the rankings. - n0lsk1

Nutterres: The Moist Kites
