Rankings









1 - Abyss ESC


Express, Addzey, Cyrix, Stoney | Nil movement
One appearance from Abyss 4th is week and they came oh so close to a victory in the Sennheiser. Just like at PAX, 1 game away from taking it all but just couldn't close it out again. Express is looking deadly and the rest of the team is as strong as ever. This team is always in the running for the majors, hopefully the bridesmaids can soon become the brides! - Tibore






2 - Athletico


SnarfSnarf, Bango, MontyConnor | Nil movement
Athletico continue to get good results, this week winning ESL while only dropping 1 game throughout the day. That being said, they have been dropping a few series this week, including a game 7 overtime loss to Alpha Sydney in the Sennheiser finals, and a 0 - 2 loss to and understaffed Legacy in HYPE. While they've proven over the last few weeks that they can be the top team, they aren't quite hitting the form that they will want, and should hopefully be hitting the scrims hard as we start looking towards tournaments coming in the new year! - yumi_cheeseman






3 - Alpha Sydney


Jake the Tyrant, Drippay, Torsos | + 1
With a very strong week, and their only recorded loss being to Sand Castle, Alpha Sydney jump up one spot to third and are now at the peak for this "new" squad. With strong results beating both Athletico and Abyss 4-3 in the Sennheiser finals, they managed to take out the tournament in style. Going into a break over Christmas these boys could easily hold their position well into the New Year as long as they remain strong in this last week. - Nutterres






4 - Legacy eSports


Soma, Eren, GroovyGrape, Penor | - 1
Their absence is proving to be telling amongst the top four as Legacy continue to drop in the rankings. It seems so long ago they were crowned champions of PAX, but their extended break cannot be ignored as the teams above them showing they can keep up with the competition. There's no doubt about their quality however, and when they return they will bring the fervour that brought them their success. - n0lsk1






5 - Sand Castle


Dumbo, aoe_emp, Lukorice | Nil movement
Sand Castle have had what could be a considerably average week, placing last in the Sennheiser tournament, but absolutely dominating HYPE. A solid 2-0 win over Alpha Sydney will be why these boys held this position, proving that Corvidae will still have to pull out amazing performances to stick this high in the power rankings. Whilst it looks unlikely that Sand Castle will move before Christmas, one amazing week could prove me wrong quite easily. Best of luck to them for this week. - Nutterres






6 (tied) - Corvidae


Siki, Daze, Plitz, Ssteve | Nil movement
Corvidae have only played 3 times in the last 4 weeks, and only once with their current core roster. This week, they were knocked out of ESL by Athletico 0 - 3 in a difficult bracket. They've held onto their 6th place position out of benefit of the doubt, as they are a high potential team that could take it to the top 5. While it is getting close to christmas and the number of tournaments are dying down, we hope to see some more results coming out from Corvidae. - yumi_cheeseman






6 (tied) - FuroX


0veerbluee, Dreameh, Untouchable_Gilly, Julz | + 1
FuroX moved up in the standings this week to 6th with Corvidae. An inconsistent week for FuroX but that's understandable since they have dropped Zepsy, moved Gilly to core, and brought in Julz as a sub. In the constant quest for perfection FuroX like to make a lot of roster changes so we will see how this shake up changes things for FuroX in the weeks to come. - Tibore






8 - Team Reticent


CJM, ZeN, PanzerShrek, Arcus | Nil movement
Reticent are proof that sticking together and putting in the hard work yields results. The longest running team outside of the top 2, they've been ever so slowly climbing the rankings, and continually improving. This week, they won their first cash prize, taking out RLO ahead of teams comprised of top players, and in the past weeks have taken games and series off of Sand Castle. They're biting at the heels of Furox right now, and some good results could see them make a quick skip up the rankings, but they still have a long way to go to get into the top 5. - yumi_cheeseman






9 - Magnitude


SamDaHam, MrShoeShoe, SeriousSam, EyeDeeKay | New
Magnitude have had a relatively strong week, playing out the ESL and HYPE tournaments, coming second to Athletico for ESL and going down relatively early in HYPE to Alpha Sydney. Whilst they haven't moved on the power rankings a strong week could easily boost them above Reticent and give them a very strong chance at pushing other teams down. All they need now is a third Sam, and their roster will be complete and ready to dominate the rankings. - Nutterres






10 - Masterminds


Fachy, Kia, Snowy, Seniaz | - 1
Masterminds have steadily been falling down the rankings over the last several weeks as they have been struggling to put core players on the pitch. The once new and fresh line up have all but been missing, even in the tournaments they do play have been underperforming especially according to their standards. Hopefully a break over the holidays will revitalise their resolve. - n0lsk1

Nutterres: Masterminds
Tibore: Team Reticent
