na Power Rankings {5/31/16 - 6/7/16}

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!

iBUYPOWER Cosmic

Roster: Kronovi, Lachinio, Gambit, 0ver Zer0*, Gibbs*

It's hard to stress just how misleading this unanimous #1 spot feels for iBP with respect to the rest of NA. Playing the role of the doomsayer, if the best of NA continues their trend of shoddy defending, odd rotations, and simply not getting the results against even the middling EU teams, it's going to be a bleak day come the International Finals. It was quite difficult to not pick KoU over iBP, but their recent matchup that went 4-2 iBP a few weeks back keeps them just shy of stealing the #1 slot. It seems that the initial shock of pure talent and individual skill of iBP is starting to waver, especially against most of the EU teams they had faced in the PPL Finals this past weekend. While their offensive pass plays are still extraordinary, they just seem to be lacking any structure and cohesion when they stop dictating the pace of the game. I do think iBP still has a grasp on the top spot for NA, but I fear that if they can't spark some kind of change soon, KoU will be in the perfect spot to take control next week.

Kings of Urban

Roster: Fireburner, Jacob, Sadjunior

I'm going to basically repeat myself from last week: another week, another solid Rocket Royale performance for Kings of Urban. They even did it with a sub (Sniperkid) this week. For those curious, Sniperkings of Urban (it's the best I got) performed as followed: 2-0 Phoenix Infinity, 3-0 Retrospect, 3-0 Dragonfly, 1-3 Mockit EU, 3-0 Lucky Bounce, and 0-3 We Dem Girlz. The only result with the full KoU lineup was a 1-3 series loss to Mockit EU in the Pulsar Premier League playoffs. Kings of Urban are still really, really good.

Eanix

Roster: Garrett, Turtle, Moses, Chrome*

Let’s get the results out of the way first: Eanix made it through Royale Groups with a 2-0 win over Vision and a 3-0 win over Xylophone Zebras, but lost to a red-hot Lucky Bounce 1-3. They also lost a 2-3 series against eff0rt in the Pulsar Premier League playoffs. Nothing to make them challenge KoU for the 2 spot and nothing that would allow Genesis or MockitNA to steal #3 from them. They, as they existed then, were still a very good team. ""...as they existed then..."" I’m not going to touch on whatever is going on regarding the VexX/Eanix organizational stuff. I will say this, however, Jayyyrah is no longer on the team and his place now belongs to Moses. We can speculate for days as to whether this is a good move, but the only metric that matters is results. I'm not sure if the addition of Moses is enough for Eanix to challenge for the top two spots, but this very well may distance themselves from the pack below them to solidify another 3rd place finish in the RLCS which should all but solidify a spot in the LAN.

Genesis

Roster: Pluto, Quinn Lobdell, Kovanel*

I really just want to hug Pluto at this point. As Moses has made his exodus to join Eanix, so has my hopes of Genesis having an easy ride into the RLCS groups, but even with ignoring the roster mania situation, they still had a bad week. They went 0-3 to WDG in PPL, and were knocked out by XyZ and LuckyBounce in the Rocket Royale group stage (both 1-2 losses). They'll hold their spot for now, however, seeing as how Mockit hasn't played anything recently and Orbit didn't hit quite hard enough to merit a two seed movement. Genesis is just in another crap situation. They're incredible players, but if things aren't settled fast, expect them to take a really big dip in the following weeks. And while their immediate future may be in limbo, I do expect them to bounce back. I don't know when. I don't know how, but these guys always find a way. My only advice to the other teams is to take advantage of the situation, fight for their seed, and please stop trading your players like hand me down Pokemon cards. And to both Pluto and Quinn, good luck.

Mock-it eSports NA

Roster: Insolences, Low5ive, Rizzo, Chad*

I can't blame teams for wanting to take a bit a of a vacation between the qualifiers as this is their best time to do so, but let's not slip up when the opportunity to capitalize on team roster changes are all the rage. Taking a quick look at what has already been discussed in these write ups: Moses goes to Eanix and Genesis is kind of just standing around confused and looking for a third... oh and Orbit is in their own debacle. While some roster changes have worked out tremendously well: KoU/iBP, Mock-it definitely has the witts about them to see this as a chance to grab more points in Q2 group stage (assuming they qualify) should the changes prove detrimental. Even though the changes have been given enough time to solidify before the group stage, Mock-it's 5th place finish is just a stärk reminder of how close they have been to getting their own taste of the Online Finals. Now, with the NA shuffle front and center on stage, they stand together as a team watching and waiting to take advantage of any weaknesses that will be presented. No one in NA is safe, not even the top two; the future is up for grabs.

Orbit

Roster: Zanejackey, Stev, Haku

Orbit is in a transitional phase at the moment. After losing Genocop a couple of weeks ago, the team has acquired Haku as the new third. This week’s Mock-it tournament was taken by Orbit after three straight series’ against 2 EZ; losing the first series 1-2 then fighting back with two 3-1 series wins in a row. The tournament was far from perfect for them as they took five losses in total, but these growing pains are natural for such a recent roster change. Rocket Royale ended relatively quickly for Orbit. After beating Retrospect 2-1 in the group stage, they dropped their series against Dragonfly 1-3 in the knockout stage. Haku says the team is unshaken and remains optimistic going into the second RLCS qualifier as their recent scrims have yielded promising results. I am personally excited to see where the team will end up after a few more weeks of practice with Haku. These guys will certainly be a strong contender to qualify for the RLCS group stage.

Lucky Bounce

Roster: Timbathy, Darkfire, September, Torment

While some of the highest ranked teams tripped up this week, Lucky Bounce only accelerated. Their most notable performance can be found in Rocket Royale where they burned straight through the group stage, sweeping XyZ and earning an impressive 2-1 win over Genesis. After beating Kindergarden 3-0 and Eanix 3-1 in knockouts, Lucky got a rare taste of EU as they take a 1-3 series loss to WDG. Their run finally ended in the 2nd chance bracket with an 0-3 loss to KoU. These results impress me because Lucky has shown that they can easily deal with teams ranked closely beneath them and take series wins against teams well above them. Lucky seems to be clicking now more than ever after a few weeks of implementing their newest member Torment. I watched Lucky sweep my team 3-0 while turtling across the field wallowing in despair, so I can attest to the well oiled rotational strategy and fast plays that are getting them to the top. If Lucky can keep pushing these results out in the coming weeks, they will be moving up quickly in my book.

Retrospect

Roster: Klassux, Huskih, Flow, Espeon, KyleMasc*

I just want it to be known that this past weekend, I played in Rocket Royale with a couple friends (iBP never showed up) and managed to get a game off Retrospect with Snaski subbing in for Espeon. Now that my only recent Rocket League accomplishment is out there, however insignificant it was, I really don't have much to say about Retrospect this week. They just didn't play, so they were at the mercy of whatever the teams around them had done, and boy did Lucky Bounce have a great week in Rocket Royale, beating Eanix and Genesis. If I were Retrospect, I wouldn't be too concerned about the small drop-off, though the prospect of a new top challenger in NA means they will have to grind out some more competitive games to work toward the second qualifier for RLCS.

SoftGoat

Selfless

Roster: Amoney_tv, Sizz, Matt

Selfless just holds onto what is remaining from their previous accolades as a week of now reported matches and harmful results from the previous 2 weeks make it harder to defend their position. It was not too long ago when we saw these same guys make their way into the RLCS with a hope for the #4 spot to put them in the Online Finals. However, today I just have to wonder if they are secrety practicing or spending some time away to regain composure for the upcoming Qualifer 2. Should Selfless continue to be aloof next week... well you can easily expect them to be out of the top 10 at least.

Dirkened

Vision

Roster: Bell, Fireworks, ODJoey, Ampel*, Unrivaled*

Excuse my informality here. I just honestly don't really know what to make of this team. In PPL they took Postbusters 3-2 and Ninja Dinos 3-0, but dropped their set against Kindergarden 4-2. Whom they then beat in the first round of Rocket Royale groups 2-1, but lost the second place match 1-2 to the same team after getting (2-0)'d by Eanix. That all sounds confusing, because in reality it is confusing. Vision isn't challenging the higher seeds like they should or used to and has very mixed results against the teams below them and only seem to be floating on this ten seeded threshold because the team ahead of them hasn't played at all, and the teams below them seem to be just as inconsistent. They're sorta kinda maybe perchance the top dog in a group of sickly looking Pomeranians, all of which are also slightly stunted in growth and likely half blind. If they keep this up, they might possibly end up, maybe, in the same place next week perhaps. At this point, it seems like finding consistent results in these bubble teams is like trying to spell out your name in your alphabet soup except all you bought was Spaghetti-o's. Final Verdict - ¯(?)/¯
