Recent News

The OCE Shuffle has begun! With the end of the season nigh, players are moving, switch, going on a vision quest, or just taking a break. As a result we’re starting to see a decline in participation across the board, which is normal around these times. In light of that we’ll be releasing the Power Rankings only when there are sufficient stable teams/results to do so.

Very soon the Throwdown PAX Champions and Runner-ups Chiefs ESC and Pale Horse eSports will go head to head with their EU and NA counterparts at the RLCS World Championships. The ex-JAM Gaming roster and Scylla Esports will have a second chance at LAN redemption next week with the ESL AU&NZ S3 live finals. They’ll go up against Chiefs and Pale Horse again in what is essentially a re-do of the Throwdown PAX LAN.

Overall Season Rankings

1 - Chiefs ESC

With minor blemishes on their season record, Chiefs have held on to the number 1 position for quite some time, making it their own. They’ve showed their dominance throughout the season; their only losses since late August have been to Legacy and Scylla. They would’ve likely gone 7-0 in ESL AU&NZ S3 league play if they weren’t forced to forfeit their match against Square One on the account of being in Washington. What’s more is they are practically unstoppable at LAN; dropping only 1 game to Pale Horse at last season’s ESL AU&NZ live finals, and dropping only 2 games to JAM at last week’s PAX finals. I predict they’ll make a similar run in the ESL live finals next week as long as they’re not exhausted from their overseas travels.

But first, the undisputed LAN-boiz will be facing their biggest Rocket League challenge yet in a matter of hours, and that is going up against G2 Esports. It may be interesting to learn however that out of the NA finalists at RLCS, G2 boasts 2 of the 3 least efficient players from league play in the form of Rizzo and Kronovi. Providing they can keep up with their pace, these guys could really annoy the home crowd. - n0lsk1

2 - Pale Horse eSports

Pale Horse have been trading blows all season with JAM Gaming on the Power Rankings, but up until recently they’ve managed to pull away from them; racking up consecutive victories against them and securing second place as their own. This line-up has grown together quickly and immensely over the course of the season, and when they’re switched on they are an absolute force to be reckoned with. Towards the end of the season they were starting to extend their intense rivalry between themselves and JAM to include Chiefs as well, living up to the title of the Top 3. They’re a surprise package, especially at LAN, even more so on the world stage.

Like Chiefs however, they face their own challenges in Washington which is also their biggest yet: PSG eSports. With arguably the most stacked run in this seasons RLCS World Championships, they’ll have to take down some of the most impressive players from EU league play in their first international LAN match in order to proceed. They may be up against it, but that has never deterred them; keep an eye out for these guys as they could produce the biggest upset in RLCS history. - n0lsk1
