Weekly Round Up

There is a plethora of Rocket League going on right now in Oceania, with Throwdown S4 league play underway, ESL announcing their third season of the AU&NZ Championship, and Vapour Nordic League underway in support of the region’s bubble teams. We also just saw the finals of MCS where Chiefs ESC once again took out the top spot, leaving JAM Gaming and Pale Horse eSports with that déjà vu feeling with similar results to the most recent ESL LAN finals.

Rankings

1 - Chiefs ESC

Drippay, Torsos, Jake, ENiGMA | + 2

The lan-bois are now online-bois once again having taken out the MCS finals this week. Despite a relentless assault from Pale Horse in the semi-final, they managed it with two relatively comfortable victories over JAM Gaming. On top of that they’ve had a flawless week this week, making it through all their match days undefeated. Could this be the return of this team’s dominance over the scene? Or will their closest contenders in recent times Pale Horse and JAM have something to say about it? - n0lsk1

2 - JAM Gaming

shadey, MontyConnor, Express | - 1

JAM gaming is currently sitting in a precarious position this month. They’ve been relegated to rank 2 after two consecutive losses against Chiefs in the MCS finals but managed to avoid dropping further by taking out Pale Horse 4-2 in the same tournament. However it was their match against Conspiracy Esports that has me quietly concerned. Although they managed a 3-0 win, every game was a close 2-1 and on a slightly different day we could have seen a very different result. Maybe it’s just a poor stylistic match-up, as conspiracy has beaten them before, and not an indication of what's to come. - Courier

3 - Pale Horse eSports

Kamii, Kia, CJCJ, Julz, xkorez | - 2

In the week off since the last power rankings were released, Pale Horse have suffered some disappointing results, including losses to both JAM and Chiefs in MCS as well as a sad loss yet again to Chiefs for Throwdown League Play. Overall these boys are still a very strong team and it was difficult to draw the line between them and JAM, but the single loss lead to Pale Horse placing ever so slightly lower. Assuming they keep up with their practice and get some more strong results against both Chiefs and JAM we could easily see them jump right back into second or even first spot. - Nutterres

4 - Avant Gaming

Cyrix, ellusive, Siki, Requiem | Nil movement

Avant has continued to lockdown their stranglehold of rank 4 this week with two interesting showings. At MCS; they had two solid defeats at Pale Horse (1-3) and JAM Gaming (3-0), which is enough to take them out of the running for a top 3 finish. At Throwdown’s League Play; they managed to take Chiefs to a 2-3 and take out Scylla 3-1. Interestingly, every game they won, they did 1 by a point and every game they lost, they got rolled. Maybe Avant need to work on playing from behind and the mental game going forward? - Courier

5 - Scylla Esports

Dumbo, Kira, Addzey, aoe_emp, Daisu | + 1

Squid Squad have managed to jump up one spot on the rankings this week with an easy qualification to the ESL Invitational but a poor loss to Avant Gaming in the first week of Throwdown League play. The shining light for Scylla however would be a game 5 victory against Legacy Esports, with some strong performances coming out from the core. Now that they’ve had some time to work together and try create more synergy, it looks like they may be on the rise but they’ll need some strong performances and a couple of good results over the coming weeks to prove that fact. - Nutterres

6 - Legacy eSports

Soma, Plitz, ZeN | - 1

Legacy have had what could easily be considered a poor few weeks and are probably rather lucky to still be sitting in sixth spot right now. Almost struggling to make it to the ESL Invitational qualifier as well as a loss to Scylla, Legacy are looking well out of shape and like its time for a revamp. Beating Noizee isn’t Toxic 3-0 in Throwdown League play is a good start but still doesn’t give much hope as they beat the essential underdogs for this season. If they want a shot at making the PAX Finals they need to start dominating the scene and showing some huge improvements, whether it’s in playstyle or roster. - Nutterres

7 - Conspiracy Esports

Slurpee, Hectic, Walcott, Triggsy | Nil movement

Conspiracy had a disappointing start to the Throwdown League play with a quick and easy 3-0 thrashing at the hands of JAM Gaming, but can be comforted by the fact that they have made it to the invitational qualifier for the next season of ESL Champs. The key now is to capitalize and make their way into ESL League play with some strong games and crucial wins. Assuming they’re successful and get some wins over teams such as Scylla and Legacy they can easily move up the rankings, but could still struggle against the top 4. - Nutterres

8 - Feint

Flawe, Myst, Tulendeena, Calamareee | + 2

Feint continue pressing their dominance their bubble team rivals, going undefeated this week in the Vapour Nordic League. This lineup also has technically qualified for the upcoming ESL AU&NZ S3 Invite Qualifiers, with two of their core players teaming up with a couple of new unofficial additions and running amok. Could we be expecting some changes in the near future? - n0lsk1

9 - Noizee Isn’t Toxic

Zest, Noizee, Outlast, Reggles | New

Noizee isn’t Toxic burst onto the scene with a spontaneous RLCS qualification, taking down both Lynx and Feint to reach the top 8 and get into Throwdown League play. Following this they’ve had a relatively quiet couple of weeks, but losses to Feint and Legacy mean they sit slightly below the pair. With what may be the most toxic roster imaginable in Oceania, it’s a surprise this team is still together. Hopefully for the sake of RLCS they stick together and give us some solid performances, but they’ll need consistency to stay in the rankings. - Nutterres

10 - Lynx Gaming

Sammy, Snares, Delusion, Blu3y | - 2

It's been a rough time for Lynx Gaming this month with the introduction of Noizee Isn’t Toxic, who stole their dreams of RLCS with a 3-2 in the final round of Throwdowns top 16 just after Lynx defeated Outlaws who were a favourite for top 8. The results at Vapour Nordic League were much more palatable, with important wins against Deft, Square1 and Cl4rity allowing them to hold onto the top 10 within the PR ladder. Now would be a good time to get some big wins against the ‘Power 6’ or at the very least stick it to Feint. - Courier
