ESL Monthly Finals Announced with in game tags!
1 - Abyss eSports Club
Addzey, Express, Cyrix, Debat | Nil movement
Undefeated for two weeks is Abyss securing top spot yet again. One of their poorest turnouts in a long time this week without only one tournament this week, however they did win HYPE and managed to take out Athletico to do so. They are looking like the team to beat at this stage and with Athletico back to fielding their core roster Abyss will need to be vigilant if they want to keep their spot. It will be interesting in the following week with the Chase as the 2nd ranked team are not in the finals, will it be a week for Abyss to pull away or Athletico to close the gap? - n0lsk1
2 - Athletico
Bango, Montyconnor, SnarfSnarf, Jcooke | Nil movement
Athletico come back with their full roster this week, and show us what they're made of. Unfortunately for them it appears a little bit of rust might have set in, taking their first big loss to Abyss in the HYPE Friday tournament. It seems they bounced back quickly however, taking first place in both ESL and rOCEt taking down, Legacy, Corvidae, Alpha Sydney and Gameroos in the process. Overall a solid week for them, but they will not be satisfied until they take down Abyss, and this week will be really telling on whether they'll be able to take back #1. - yumi_cheeseman
3 - Legacy eSports
Soma, Eren, GroovyGrape, Drippay, Penor | Nil movement
Legacy finally put a stop to the speculation this week and announced their new members. Most of us wondered if it would be GroovyGrape or Drippay, the answer, "Why not both". Soma and Eren remain in their core positions and they will have 3 subs. Legacy played 2 tournaments this week both on Sunday (ESL and Rocet) In ESL they went down to Alpha Sydney and continue their run of unlucky ESL bracket draws. They managed to beat Athletico (2-1) and Corvidae (2-0) in Rocet, however couldn't take out the win as in the double elim bracket they had to take on Athletico again (1-2). The main question leading into the future will be based around how they will perform with the 2 core and 3 subs.
4 - Corvidae
Daisu, Siki, Daze | Nil movement
Corvidae have firmly held this 4th spot for the last two weeks, and show no signs of giving this spot back to Alpha Sydney. Strong performances against lower ranked teams, coupled with an inability to beat Legacy sees Corvidae sitting comfortable and hopefully a smile on Daisu's face! To get any higher they'll have to pull out some consistently good performances against Legacy, but for the time being have to relax and be happy with where they're at now. - Nutterres
5 - Alpha Sydney
Dumbo, Stoney, Dicky, Shawthing | Nil movement
The past couple weeks have been shaky for Alpha Sydney, with mixed results spanning from defeating Athletico and falling to Team Erase. I suppose they could be considered the surprise package in this case as it's difficult to predict which Alpha Sydney will turn up at any given time. I'm sure they feel they should be higher but it's hard to deny their unbalanced results as a result of an ongoing poor run of form. They will be looking for consistency in their play and their results in the coming weeks to find their way back up the rankings. - n0lsk1
6 - Gameroos
Aoe_emp, Julz, Plitz, DabeastXD, Yumi_cheeseman | Nil movement
Gameroos didn't play too much this week, only ESL and Rocet continuing the relaxed theme of the week for most teams (besides Athletico - a complete reverse from the usual!). They didn't manage to pick up a big scalp, going down to Athletico (1-3), Athletico (1-2) and Alpha Sydney (0-2). It's hard to move them in the power rankings this week after that kind of run so they will hold steady at 6th.
7 - Team Erase
Fachy, Lukorice, Greeny | Nil movement
Team Erase won Gameroos Tuesday this week and on Thursday had to be taken out by Athletico in the Grand Final (1-3). This team is still putting up amazing performances and are on the charge. It is the RLO Chase Finals this weekend, and with the main event on Sunday Team Erase are looking very good right now with a chance to do more. The competition will be tough though as their Preliminary Final is against Corvidae, then if they could make it to a Final the toughest test awaits them in the Grand Final as either Legacy or Abyss. Can the underdog do smash it out?!
8 - Furox Omega
Overbluee, Dreameh, Hughsey | + 1
FuroX Omega are quickly rising in the Oceanic scene, having recently picked up Hughesy and solidifying the core. With a few odd performances they are lucky to sit in 8th place but will need to play a lot better to convince me that they deserve to stay in the top 10. With The Chase over but the finals well underway, these lads will be looking to take out their championship and prove themselves as a top team.- Nutterres
9 - Blitzkrieg
Triggsy, Whitewolf, Waterblitz | - 1
It was a very average week for a lot teams, and with that Blitzkrieg are able to stay in the top 10. All this despite a complete roster change coming out this weekend, and thus an absence in competitive play. They were able to show up to Gameroos this week, winning against Enigma, and Furox Omega, but losing to Furox Alpha and Anixia. It's going to take a big showing if they want to maintain their position this week. - yumi_cheeseman
