na Power Rankings {4/8/16 - 4/15/16}

Welcome to the Rocket League Power Rankings!

Each week, our committee will be ranking the best teams based on a variety of criteria as well as providing commentary on the teams who make it into the Top 10. The committee is comprised of players, content creators, fans, analysts, & coordinators to help diversify opinions and come to a general consensus. Each committee member has their own method for determining team rankings (ranging from stat-tracking to instinct), but they only count for a single vote since the individual ranks are averaged together. Each member will also list a team that didn't quite make the Top 10, but they feel is on the rise and should be watched.

While we do our best to ensure that we are fair and impartial, it is important to remember that these are just opinions and will most likely change weekly. If you have any questions, thoughts, or suggestions, please send them our way. We’d love to hear from you!

Kings of Urban

Roster: Fireburner, Jacob, Moses, Vafele

Describing the activity of the past month as merely “roster changes” just doesn’t even come close to conveying the magnitude of what happened in NA. Frankly, “dumpster fire” stopped being effective after a couple weeks. However you choose to label the post-RLCPL / pre-RLCS chaos, Kings of Urban made it through unscathed, but perhaps a little shaken. It was incredibly difficult to rank the top 4 teams. Kings of Urban haven’t been the dominating team they used to be and are being pressured by the likes of Orbit (formerly Failure to Launch), newcomers Retrospect, and Mockit eSports NA. The gap that separates these teams is far narrower than the numbers 1 through 4 would otherwise indicate. I felt Kings' historical dominance before this recent period of instability gave them the edge over the other top tier teams to earn themselves the top spot, but Orbit is hot on their bumpers.

Orbit

Roster: Zanejackey, Genocop, HotWheelsSid, Stev

The team formerly known as Failure to Launch has leveraged their success over the past several months into a sponsorship deal with Orbit (one of the largest eSports organizations to come to the Rocket League scene to date). Starting off the RLCS era, Orbit has beaten Kings of Urban (twice), MockitNA (twice), Lucky Bounce (twice), Goomba Squad, & No Clue. However, they've also lost to Kings of Urban, Aspire, MockNA, Retrospect, and Kairos (disbanded) which makes their claim as the definitive #1 team a little less than certain. For me personally, it came down to the fact that they had beaten KoU and MockNA (2 top 4 teams) more times than they lost to them, but a case could certainly be made for KoU as well.

Mock-it eSports NA

Roster: Insolences, Low5ive, Rizzo

Over the past three weeks, Mock-it have found some success, with an ESL win and taking home the monthly prize this past weekend. In the top NA team soup, Mock-it have faired admirably, but like the rest of the teams, they've traded wins back and forth. Winning only a third of their series against Orbit, but two for three against Kings of Urban, the rock-paper-scissors matchup was a difficult decision to make. Ultimately, KoU arrives on top of this mess due to their consistent wins against lower teams, only losing a more unexpected series to the always-dangerous VexX in these past few weeks. Mock-it has only dropped games to Kindergarden, while Orbit has lost series to Chemistry and Aspire, but the head-to-head matchup was too much to ignore. Mock-it do have the skill to push to the top, and they will get there by contuining to ward off the teams nipping at their heels to get a slice of that top team pie.

Retrospect

Roster: Klassux, Huskih, Flow, Espeon, KyleMasc

It's 1/2 NOT, 1/2 Apollo, and 1/2 Double Tap? Or wait... Never Tap Apollo? Well, I guess Retrospect sounds good too... I guess :P On a serious note, you're probably seeing quite a few new teams up in these rankings whereas in reality it's really just comprised of the same players in new squads. And Never Ta... err I mean Retrospect is NOT an exception. Comprised of players from the previous teams mentioned, it really doesn't come as a surprise that they've done pretty good. Not amazing, but enough to play better than a lot of teams. Obviously their wins over KoU and Orbit pulls a lot of weight, as well as some key wins here and there, but there's an awful lot of mishaps here and there that is pulling them down a bit. Though to be fair, everyone in the NA lineup has dropped quite a bit of unexpected games. In summary, an undefeated PPL run really set them up for success, however it's shrouded by uncertainty.

iBUYPOWER Cosmic

Roster: Kronovi, Lachinio, Gambit, Gibbs

Cosmic went through some roster changes just like much of NA. Dropping Sad, moving Gibbs to coach/sub/mime, and welcoming Lachinio from Untethered and Gambit from Orange Creamsicle. On paper this team looks beastly but we haven't seen them in much action yet. They won Mock-It 3 weeks ago taking out an assortment of EU teams as well as Kings Of Urban. No one will be surprised if these guys get catapulted to #1 soon. We just gotta see it to believe it.

Gibbs

VexX Gaming

Roster: Jayyyrah, Garrett, Turtle

VexX are one of the more curious teams attempting to break through that top bubble. They have great results, getting wins against KoU and Genesis, but their stray losses to teams like Phoenix Infinity and Lucky Bounce keep them just beyond the reach of the top. Now that Jayyyrah is settled back from his long absence in past weeks, I expect this team to really start working toward claiming a spot for the RLCS. VexX definitely have the talent, but they need to buckle down in the coming weeks and win the games they should easily take if they want to shine with the best. If they can start to comfortably take future series against teams like Lucky Bounce and Genesis while still challenging the best of NA, this squad is definitely my pick for a dark horse run at RLCS.

Genesis

Roster: Sadjunior, Pluto, Quinn Lobdell, Kovanel

Genesis is the other Cosmic/Untethered/Orange Creamsicle team to join forces and take a run at the RLCS. Most people have these 3 guys as the "#2's" of their old teams but they are here to prove that they can be the best in NA. During the PPL qualifiers they were a bit shaky since Quinn was sick/subbed for but they still went 3-3 and had a nail biter loss to Mock-It. The next day they came back and destroyed everyone in ESL. ESL didn't feature Mock, KOU, Orbit, or Cosmic but almost everyone else participated. Genesis didn’t play all these teams but the teams they did play they made short work of. I expect them to continue to improve as they get used to the new team. These guys are a real threat to be a consistent top 3 team.

Gibbs

Lucky Bounce

Roster: Timbathy, Darkfire, Matt, September

After several months of skirting outside of the Top 15, Lucky Bounce launches all the way up to number 8 this week. They've had some really strong results lately with wins over Genesis, VexX Gaming, Jorellis Goodies, & Retrospect. The losses to MockitNA, Orbit, No Clue, & Double Tap (RIP), however, keep them from rising up any higher at this point. They've made several roster changes over the past several weeks and it certainly appears that the changes have paid off. --- Fun historical fact - Timbathy and Matt used to play on a team that I personally think was the best named team to date (Battlecar Galactica).

CloudFuel

Chemistry

Roster: Amoney_tv, Sizz, Air

Allow me to welcome newcomers Chemistry to the Top 10! Amoney_tv, Sizz, and Air showed the world that they established their namesake when they defeated teams like Lucky Bounce, Orbit, and CheekySploonMan (Kronovi/KyleMasc/Digital) in the latest Mockit. They should feel great about their performance and if they keep it up they can contend for one of those top 8 spots in the RLCS qualifier.

AspireRL

Roster: Finesse Greg, Kazoo, Chrome, SteveGates

Falling into a nearly unanimous #10 in this iteration of the power rankings, for Aspire (aka 2ARC) being on the brink of the top 10 is an oh so familiar past. Let's get a bit into why Aspire is ranked where they're at: to put it simple they've really only put together one impressive win for the past three weeks, and have lost against the teams that they are currently ranked below. The elephant in the room here is really the fact that they've had to switch out their star player SteveGates for Chrome, but I'm definitely not trying to put Chrome down, it's just that Steve created some big shoes to fill in. At this point, I'm keeping my eyes on Aspire to see if their team synergy and chemistry is able to drive them back up the ranks as the newly formed teams have really taken a commanding step into the NA scene.
