RLO Power Rankings - Edition #3 (15/9/2020)
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 third edition of the RLO Power Rankings looks at the results from the following tournaments:
1. - Renegades (+1)
CJCJ, Kamii, Siki
Revenge! Renegades were successful in avenging their defeat against Cringe Society from RLCS Event #1, finally achieving the elusive championship title. An MVP performance from CJCJ allowed for a dominant 4-1 victory against a Cringe Society roster which struggled to hit the ground running in the Grand Final. Now with both Renegades and Cringe Society equal first on Fall Split Rankings, the 3rd and final event for the split is shaping to be a battle for the ages.
2. - Cringe Society (-1)
Decka, Drippay, Torsos
Unfortunately the view from the top step didn't last long for Cringe Society, as Renegades swiped it back.
Cringe Society will be looking to flip the script, as they aim to settle who is the top seed heading into the OCE Major.
All eyes will be on these two and with no clear winner in sight, its gonna be a cracker.
3. - Ground Zero ( - )
Amphis, Express, Julz
Signed, sealed and delivered. Ground Zero have now officially locked themselves in as the third best roster in the region with a outstanding performance in RLCS Event #2. With only going down to Renegades in Stage 2 and Playoffs, the roster continues to move positively with the newest addition of Amphis.
4. - Mindfreak ( - )
Cavemanben, Fever, Requiem
Similar to Ground Zero, Mindfreak are locked in fourth position on the PR board. Mindfreak only went down to Cringe Society throughout the entire event, but they continue to show dominance against the pack below with no sign of easing up.
5. - Vort Central (+2)
Sammy, Tango, Vortexioz
Consistency of achieving strong performances grants Vort Central fifth place on the PR Board. Moving up from seventh place comes as no shock, as they continue to put in strong performances with only losing to Dire Wolves in Stage 1. With consistency with them currently, they will be looking to continue the fortune going into the third and final event of the split.
6. - Gaming Gamers (-1)
Fiberr, Leviathan, ZeN
When consistency is key, Gaming Gamers are beginning to show glimpses of struggle and uncertainty. A shocking 3-0 defeat to No Dramas in Top 16 has left our PR Committee questioning if the pressure continues to impact the raw skill or if No Dramas just had the momentum in the series.
With Gaming Gamers making Playoffs, they continue to tick the boxes but with one more event before the OCE Major our only hope is for a strong convincing performance is on the cards.
7. - Dire Wolves (-2)
Ghost, Misty, Spratt
Out of the frying pan and into the fire is how you can sum up the Dire Wolves run in RLCS. A challenging schedule in Top 16 saw Dire Wolves face Havoc, Renegades, Gaming Gamers, Ground Zero and FURY. Unfortunately, they were unable to break into the Playoffs but with now facing the challenge they will look to overcome the adversity moving forward.
With the hunt for success now set for the final event, they will be hungry for a berth in the Playoffs.
8 - FURY (+1)
KennySalmon, Matro, Scarth
FURY is back on track! Gelling together as a trio with reverse sweeping Havoc and Dire Wolves is a positive step into qualifying for Playoffs. The development of the roster provides great confidence for there fans, as they now focus on rising back up the board.
9. - Canberra Havoc (-1)
Le Duck, SPYDOGE, Walcott
A wobbly start to Stage 2 for Havoc had fans doubting if they could be able to turn it around when facing a Game 5 on a do or die series with Forbidden Gaming. With backs to the wall they were able to hold on and then continue the momentum into making to Playoffs. The shaky achievement is a credit to the lineup but will history repeat itself?
10. - No Dramas (+1)
Cobbo, Yeatzy, Zayd
The highlight for No Dramas performance in RLCS, was the sweep against Gaming Gamers in Stage 2. Unfortunately, the upset wasn't enough for them to make Playoffs as they fell short.
With the team continuing to rise and a thankful assistance from Widow who substituted for Zayd in Qualifiers, this provides signs of the roster continuing to improve.
11. - Blessed Esports (-1)
CJM, Finn, Riv
Slipping slightly down the board is Blessed Esports. Formally known as Sneakybois the roster had a disappointing turn out in Stage 2 of RLCS. Still tackling nerves and finding the correct team playstyle, expect the roster to come back to form for the upcoming event.
12. - Forbidden Gaming (NEW)
Lausiie, KyRo, Applecrash
The newest addition to the PR Board is Forbidden Gaming.
Forbidden knock off R!OT Gaming from the board after a strong performance in the XP Esports RL Open Demolition.
Forbidden Gaming continue to confuse the opposition with an unorthodox playstyle, which saw a 3-2 series win against Cringe Society in that event.
Looking to continue to develop, the roster will be aiming to become a solidified member on the PR Board.
