Pale Horse once again stepping up and securing a spot in a major final, where they’ll have another chance to prove they have what it takes to hang with the best in Oceania.

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
