The OCE Power Rankings - 23/01/17 - 29/01/17

These Power Rankings are done by a committee of 4 people consisting of:


Former player, with extensive knowledge of the OCE Scene.


Analyst & Commentator for AussieGamingTV.


Rocket League addict.


Director of Public Relations for Rocket League Oceania and budding global Twitch mod.

Weekly Round Up

It’s with many apologies that it has been several weeks since our last power rankings release. I myself recently returned from holidays only recently, having been given assurances from the primary manager that the power rankings would be taken care of. Unfortunately, all attempts at communication since then have proved fruitless. However, a very special thanks goes to yumi_cheeseman for going beyond the call of duty and continuing his power ranking stream throughout the temporary hiatus, which you can catch every Monday night on his Twitch channel.

Nonetheless, the committee are eager to get back into the groove of things, especially since having won 2016’s Best Community Driven Content for OCE Rocket League. There has been some minor shuffling of teams and players over the break, as well as the return of Legacy eSports from their temporary competitive interlude. We have also seen several highly competent teams form recently to compete in newly announced major tournaments, one of which is already underway and another just recently announced.

1 - Athletico

SnarfSnarf, Bango, MontyConnor | + 2

Back on hallowed ground is Athletico with a long time absence from the top. They haven’t necessarily shown as much dominance in as many tournaments as Alpha Sydney, but they have completed three 4-0 drubbings out of their last five head to heads. However, for the tournaments they do enter they are more than likely to take them out, oftentimes without dropping a round. A force to be reckoned with, likely sharpening their claws for the upcoming major tournaments. - n0lsk1

2 - Alpha Sydney

Torsos, Jake the Tyrant, Drippay | - 1

Alpha Sydney have had an extremely strong start to 2017, coming in hot with amazing results against all of the top teams but barely missing out on that top spot due to the very simple face that Athletico just have that edge. Torsos, Jake and Drippay have made a huge name for themselves as a young and upcoming Alpha Sydney side and have only got space to rise. With a coach like yumi_cheeseman these boys will be receiving the best and getting some amazing tips. Winning the inaugural 2KF1 tournament for the year and placing first or second in almost every tournament they play, they sit in a very comfortable 2nd position. - Nutterres

3 - Sand Castle

Dumbo, aoe_emp, Lukorice | + 1

Sand Castle have had quite a dominating run to begin the 2017 year. With excellent results against all of the top teams, but the odd loss in places to teams such as Alpha Sydney, Athletico and SSU the Sand Castle boys sit in a comfortable 3rd place to start this year. Having recently played with Addzey after he left 1More, Sand Castle will be looking to pull out some even greater performances and hopefully make their way higher in the power rankings. Make sure you’re looking out for that Sand Castle vs 1More in upcoming tournaments. - Nutterres

4 - 1More

Express, cyrix, Stoney, The Stig | - 2

As the 2017 season starts up, we’ve already seen a few big moves in the scene, with new tournaments coming left right and center, but perhaps the biggest move has been the loss of Addzey on 1More. It appears the 1More team is feeling the affects of the departure, losing that synergy they once had, but they carry on the hopes of bouncing back even stronger. For now, they have a star studded substitute lineup with Stoney and The Stig being top level players in their own right. While 1More have dropped, they’re still the most consistent team in OCE at the moment, and I can see them climbing the rankings again very soon. - yumi_cheeseman

5 - Team Reticent

C.J.M., PanzerShrek, ZeN | + 1

Reticent are an interesting bunch, hyper aggressive, and fast players, they can catc
