RLO Power Rankings | Edition #13 (7/10/2021)

Welcome to the RLO Power Rankings.

The top Oceanic teams are ranked by a committee of Community Leaders, who base the rankings off tournament results from Majors, Minors and Premier events in the local and international circuits. During the regular season, we will look to update the power rankings around every two or so weeks, however, during offseason periods updates will understandably be made sparingly.

The thirteenth edition of the RLO Power Rankings looks at the results from the following tournaments:

The Gauntlet S4 - Week 2 + 3 + 4

The Glove S4 - Week 2 + 3 + 4

RLO For The Kids

Please note that currently this edition is in reflection of current off-season teams and results and is subject to change with the continuation of roster movement.

1. - Ground Zero ( - )

Express, Torsos, Amphis, Jimmah (C)

Scratchy Showcase

Ground Zero made their first appearance in the off-season last weekend when participating in RLO For The Kids.

Whilst the roster finished a convincing second place, both series against R!OT Gaming and Dire Wolves were nail-biting, showing signs of cracks that need to be filled. With Dire Wolves taking a 4-1 victory in the Grand Final, the cat is officially out of the bag and with RLCS commencing this week, anyone could make a successful run at the defending champions.

2. - Renegades ( - )

CJCJ, Kamii, Fever, Zukoe (S), LBP (C)

Dominating Gauntlet

Domination in The Gauntlet is not an unfamiliar phrase associated with Renegades.

Their continued ability to pull victories against Dire Wolves and R!OT Gaming has been impressive during the offseason.

However, cracks and weaknesses were exposed during RLO For The Kids, with a surprisingly close series against Bros On Their Toes, Whilst it must be noted that this series was played with their substitute Zukoe, the following series against Dire Wolves with a full-strength side didn't show much improvement.

With Ground Zero still getting back into the swing of things, the top spot is still up for grabs.

3rd - Dire Wolves ( +1 )

Fiberr, Misty, Walcott, Vive (C)

Finding Form

The wolfpack have been out for blood in the last fortnight.

Facing elimination in The Gauntlet, the roster dominated in back-to-back weeks, promoting themselves into consideration for the top 2 in the region. Fuelling the conversation was their dominating performance in RLO For The Kids with a 3-1 and 4-1 victory over both Renegades and Ground Zero.

All eyes are on the wolfpack into if they can showcase this form going into the first Regional.

4. - R!OT Gaming ( -1 )

Kaka, Finn, Tango, Joshuadx7 (S)
