1 - Abyss ESC
Express, Addzey, Cyrix, Stoney | Nil movement
Quiet week for Abyss, didn't play as a side during the week but will ever so slightly hold onto their 1st place. Athletico won 3 tournaments last week, however they didn't have to face Abyss or Legacy who didn't play so complicated to gauge. The rankers were largely split here for 1 and 2 between Abyss and Athletico and Abyss just edged it out. With the year winding down we may not see the top sides playing too often in weekly tournaments, hopefully they can all stay in good form for a big entry into 2017.
2 - Athletico
Bango, SnarfSnarf, Montyconnor | + 1
It's been a quiet week for many of the top teams and Athletico took this opportunity to pounce, boasting a perfect week. Confidence has been in short supply of late for the Athletico lads; they'll be hoping that a week like this can help boost them back into the form that saw them rise to the top of the rankings. - n0lsk1
3 - Legacy eSports
Soma, Eren, GroovyGrape, Penor | - 1
After yielding poor results over the last couple of weeks, dropping matches to the likes of Abyss, Athletico, and Gameroos - Legacy is in a bit of a slump. Legacy has been pretty quiet over the last week, likely looking to work themselves back into the form we expect from them after taking the PAX Finals. It's no doubt they'll be preparing to come back even better and to regain that #1 position in the region moving into 2017. - Wasted
4 - Alpha Sydney
Jake the Tyrant, Drippay, Torsos | Nil movement
Having seen very little of Alpha Sydney in recent times, it would be reliant on their strong performances of past to keep them this high in the power rankings. If we don't see enough good performances from this lineup they may not be able to hold this position much longer and may even be threatened with dropping further down. Would be great to see these boys back in action and out destroying tournaments. - Nutterres
5 - Sand Castle
Dumbo, aoe_emp, Lukorice | Nil movement
After 2 weeks tied with Corvidae they've finally broken away and have done so unanimously. Another quiet team this week, fair though as Dumbo was with fellow power ranker Yumi_Cheeseman in Amsterdam watching RLCS. However in the past two weeks they've lost to Team Reticent twice, perhaps becoming their kryptonite? They'll need to be more consistent against lower ranked teams to facilitate their climb to the top. - n0lsk1
6 - Corvidae
Siki, Daze, Plitz, Ssteve | - 1
For the first time in months Corvidae have dropped below the 5th position, having done very little in the last week as well, mostly due to a lack of tournaments. With FuroX closing in having played a few recent tournaments, Corvidae will have to pull up some good performances over this week to guarantee holding this position and I'm sure they will try their hardest to jump above Sand Castle shortly. - Nutterres
7 - FuroX
0veerbluee, Dreameh, Zepsy, Untouchable_Gilly | Nil movement
It is the same story for FuroX once again. They are incredibly consistent at beating teams below them on the PR but still can't make inroads into the sides higher. The only higher side they faced this week was Athletico where they went 0-2 and 2-4. This team plays is a lot of tournaments, hopefully they can start getting some more consistent top level teams to play against.
8 - Team Reticent
CJM, ZeN, PanzerShrek, Arcus | + 1
Back to their highest position on the power rankings, this time without the help of the OCE shuffle! Team Reticent have been putting in work recently rising two spots in as many weeks with some very solid results. It's been a long time coming but we could be seeing this roster finally fulfilling their potential. Underestimate this team at your peril. - n0lsk1
9 - Masterminds
Fachy, Kia, Snowy, Seniaz | Nil movement
Masterminds (formerly Serenity) didn't have the biggest week, only winning 1 out of 5 competitive matches. That being said, 3 of the teams who beat them are placed higher on the rankings. 0-3 Athletico, 1-3 Sand Castle 1-2 Team Reticent. The team will hang onto 9th spot for this week. But the rankers will definitely be looking for some wins in the next week.
10 - Infinity
Slurpee, Hectic, Lulz, Fake, Rasmus, Freak | - 2
Infinity are one of the lower ranked teams to have played tournaments this week, and haven't been able to pull out amazing performances to hold their place from last week. Losing twice to Anixia (now Magnitude) they had a string of average performances, culminating with 2-0 and 2-1 losses to them. Hopefully we can see better performances from Infinity this week in an effort to avoid losing their position to this talented Magnitude side. - Nutterres
