eu Power Rankings {5/24/16 - 5/31/16}

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!

Flipsid3 Tactics

Roster: Markydooda, Kuxir97, M1k3rules, mye_bipod_4shor

It was the big week. The week which would decide where all the money, the trophy, the pride, the hookers, and most importantly, the cocaine, would all end up. It was the week where people grew up, where cars had gender reassignment surgery and became men, where men took their huge exhaust pipes down to the field, and where they bunkered down to play with some big, all important balls. At the end of the weekend, the team emerging with the biggest exhaust pipe, was, of course, the no. 1 seed, We Dem… wait, no, everyone else was wrong. Flipside took the trophy this week, after taking out their exhaust pipes and… Flipside won this week. They played through Gfinity on Friday, and took the tournament down, never dropping more than one game in a series. They took out Gentlemen 3-0, Ka Pow 3-1, and beat Mock It EU in the final 4-1 to take the win. This was a good precedent going into the RLCS online finals, and they faced Mock It again in the semi finals. Very rarely for Flipside, they started off the tournament brilliantly, and took out (a questionably looking) Mock It in a decisive 4-0 sweep, to put them $1500 richer, and into the finals where they would face We Dem Girlz. They lost the first game against the favourites 0-2, but then came back to win the next game decisively 4-1, taking the momentum, and then taking the series 4-2. It was by far the best Flipside have ever looked, each player was playing near the top of his/her game, and they were playing with each other (heh) almost perfectly. They were all playing very fast, an improvement that M1k3Rules has been showing especially lately, and they were passing inexplicably well. Kuxir97 has been the best performing member of the team for the past few weeks, but when it counted, F3 really looked solid all round, with it being incredibly hard to pick a best playing member for the tournament. There is gonna be a constant question being asked about F3, about whether they can keep up this insane level of play, and for the next few weeks it’s probably gonna be a no. But when it gets important again, and when RLCS starts back up, i’m sure we’ll see them at the top of the leaderboard, and the top of the game.

We Dem Girlz

Roster: Remkoe, gReazy, Maestro

For the first time in over a month We Dem Girlz aren't a #1 team. This may come as a shock to many people but one of the main reasonings is not to the fault of WDG but to the strength of how Flipsid3 has played the past week. They were unable to play in GFinity with their full roster and had Amoney playing alongside them under the monikers of Amoneys Girlz and amoneys boys. Those results wouldn't be considered towards our ranks. In Mock-it EU tournament on Saturday they took the tournament by beating out SK Gaming and Crown & Jewels Frost (twice) to win it all. Continuing with Rocket Royale where they seemingly had no difficulties in their games until the final stage. During the finals bracket they faced off against Genesis to start but the results was an expected 3-1 for We Dem Girlz. After facing Genesis they had a much harder opponent in Kings of Urban but they were able to squeak out a 3-2 series win in their first set against them and faced them again in the final round to only yet see a similar result of 3-2. During RLCS is where people might see the sudden shift in ranks between Flipsid3 and We Dem Girlz. We Dem Girlz had an arguably an easier opponent in KA-POW and it was seen through the 4-0 series win for WDG. But most viewers were watching for this specific Finals against Flipsid3 Tactics and it really didn't disappoint anyone - except for WDG fans - resulting in a 2-4 series loss for We Dem Girlz. Like Alieuzz mentioned these top two spots seemingly rely on how consistent Flipsid3 can play over the weeks because we know that We Dem Girlz have kept their consistent performances over these many weeks.

Mock-it eSports EU

Roster: Paschy90, Miztik, Sikii, Turbopolsa

It was the big one last week. The bee's knees, the cat's pyjamas, the toasted marshmallow. The RLCS Qualifier 1 Online Finals were afoot and Mock-It was there as the #3 seed. Guess where they placed! That's right, 17th. Sorry, I mean 3rd. Their first match was vs. Flipsid3 Tactics and it went...yeah pretty bad. I don't know if Mockit were nervous or they hadn't warmed up properly, but this was not the Mock-It we usually see. They were constantly under pressure from Flipsid3 for the majority of the series and 2 out of the 4 games were completely one-sided. The series ended at 4-0 to Flipsid3, which mean Mock-It moved to the third place match Vs. KA-POW. This went a little better. Although Mock-It were still not quite themselves they were certainly playing a lot better now, and it showed because this series was one of the closest in Rocket League eSport history. It went the entire 7 games and 4 of them finished with an overtime. The final game ended with a 2-1 OT win for Mock-It, after Miztik scored the winning goal. This final result means that Mock-It are currently 3rd with 740 points. In GFINITY last week they had a really good run, but eventually lost 4-1 to Flipsid3 in the grand finals. They had a similar run in Rocket Royale, where they dominated their groups with 12 points, after beating Shazoo 5-0, Mock-It International 4-1, and Team Solid 3-2. In the EU knockouts Mock-It reverse sweeped Supersonic Avengers to win 3-2, followed by a 3-1 win over Miracle Workers. In the international finals however, things didn't quite go so well, as they lost 3-1 to Kings of Urban. In the losers' bracket they managed to stay in the tournament longer by beating Genesis 3-0, but then lost to Kings of Urban 3-1 once again

Doomsee

Supersonic Avengers

Roster: ELMP, Snaski, Doomsee, Kasabi

Here's the best team that didn't make it to top 8 in RLCS. Supersonic Avengers have been in a middling spot since not qualifying for RLCS group stage. They didn't have a good time in Friday's Gfinity losing out to "2 Kidnappers" losing 1-3. In Rocket Royale they had a decent start to the week by placing second in their group - with sub Kasabi - only losing a set to Crown & Jewels but beating out FireWall and The Flying Dutchmen. The knockout stage was a different story, facing against Mock-it EU and losing out 2-3 in the series which ended their Rocket Royale hopes. One of their saving graces in terms of results is ESL, they grabbed another victory there. Beating out eSportsWall and Cow Nose 3-0 while moving on to beat SnK eSports 4-1. They seem to show their strength in ESL by beating out the bubble teams that are trying to fight their way into the top 10/16 but they didn't have much competition because some of the teams that they would compete with were playing in RLCS.

KA-POW

Roster: al0t, Sniperkid138

This week Kapow remain in 5th place with their games coming from Gfinity and the finale of the 1st RLCS stage. Obviously the major talking point surrounding this team at the moment is the sudden departure of Turbopolsa following their loss to Mockit EU in the 3rd place match on Sunday. Prior to this however they did have a brief stint in Gfinity on Friday where their only notable games came with a solid 3-1 victory of SK Gaming (formerly JJJ), and then their 1-3 loss to Flipsid3, nothing to be surprised about. Now onto the Online Finals of RLCS, where they were matched against We Dem Girlz in the semi-final. This series was a complete 4-0 stomp in favour of WDG, in which there was a total mismatch in team performance. This put them down into the 3rd place decider where they faced Mockit EU, who were also beaten 4-0 by Flipsid3 in the other semi-final. This series was one of the worst in terms of quality I’ve seen from EU in a while, but in the end Mockit showed at least an ounce of class and were able to take the win 3-2. This had Kapow take 4th place in the first stage of RLCS, securing a solid amount of points going into the next stage and at the time put them in a pretty good position for qualifying for the LAN finals. However, only a couple of hours after the end of the tournament on Sunday, Kapow announced on Twitter that Turbopolsa would be leaving, meaning that one of the longest-standing unchanged lineups in Rocket League would now be going through roster difficulties. It seemed apparent that Turbopolsa made the decision to leave based on the disappointing performances shown by Kapow against the other top teams. It also seems like Turbo may be switching places with Miztik from Mockit, with Miztik joining up with Kapow. Turbo clearly feels that joining Mockit gives him a much better chance at making the LAN. With Miztik likely replacing Turbo on Kapow, it will be interesting to monitor how this changes the performance of Kapow going forward. I personally feel that there will not be any noticeable improvement, but perhaps with Turbo gone from the team, some of the negativity in the team may have been removed.

The Flying Dutchmen

Roster: Dogu, Jessiepinkmaan, PauliepauINL, Vogan

Nothing much to say here this week for The Flying Dutchmen. They weren't in both GFinity tournaments and same story for ESL and Mock-it's EU Tournament. They did make an apperance in Rocket Royale but it wound up only being the group stage. They were another team that 5-0'd FireWall but were able to take out Crown & Jewels 3-2 in the set. The match that mattered the most to them getting out was their 1-4 set loss to Supersonic Avengers. The 4-6 spots are seemingly stagnant with SA, KAPOW, and TFD just constantly holding their place in the ranks.

Gentlemen

Roster: Bluey, soLid99npnp

Gentlemen move up 2 places this week into 7th. They start of their week playing in Rocket Royale where they don’t actually have the best of results. They finish 3rd in their group, behind eff0rt who are below them in the power rankings. As for results, they first lose to eff0rt 1-4, with eff0rt fielding a sub, so whether this is entirely indicative is to be questioned. They then lose 1-4 to WDG and beat Cow Nose 5-0. This tournament doesn’t impact their ranking that heavily as the only real unexpected result was to a substitute roster, but they’ll still be somewhat disheartened I’d imagine. Next for them was the Tuesday Gfinity in which they crucially beat Precision Z 3-1 which contributed a fair bit to Gentlemen’s ranking this week. Gentlemen were then beat 0-4 in the final by WDG + Amoney. In Friday’s Gfinity they had a similarly important win against Team Solid, another team previously ahead of them in the rankings, and then lost 0-3 to Flipsid3. So as you can see from this, Gentlemen had two crucial performances. Not only this but teams like Precision Z and Solid have dropped the ball somewhat recently, and so in combination this resulted in Gentlemen climbing to 7th this week. Looking ahead, it’s been announced that Kaydop has left the team, from what I gather this was a decision made by the rest of Gentlemen and you do wonder why a roster change was necessary given their impressive rise up the rankings. I wonder who they have lined up to replace him, as this will impact the future trajectory of this team.

Crown & Jewels Frost

Roster: Sebadam, Taurex, Flarke

Another team that looked at last week, and decided to make it their female dog, was Crown and Jewels Frost. The new team consists of Sebadam, Taurex and ViolentPanda, all players who have been around the top level of the scene for a while now. They got thrown together by the new Crown and Jewels coach JohnnyBoi_i, and really came out firing. In the Tuesday Gfinity they made the semi finals, and had an exceptionally close series against Amoney's Girlz (We Dem Girlz + Amoney) losing 2-3, showing they were probably the 2nd best team in the tournament, as Amoney's Girlz 4-0’d Gentlemen in the final. They played in Rocket Royale, and topped a group that also consisted of no. 4 ranked SA, and no.6 ranked Flying Dutchmen, and went 4-1 in the series against SA, a brilliant result for the team. They further 3-0’d Team Solid in the Knockout, but lost to We Dem Girlz 3-1 before they could make the finals. These were good results, but it looked sketchy for a bit when ViolentPanda announced that he was retiring from pro Rocket League, and so they lost what was quite possibly their best player. The cute team quickly looked to get a cute replacement, and Johnny drafted his former team mate from Mockingbirds (Mock It International) Flarke to fill in the gap. At first the team wasn’t sure if Flarke had the right hair to fit in with them, but he got it cut, and they happily played Mock it EU 3v3, where they promptly slapped a load of people. They came 2nd, losing out to We Dem Girlz again 1-3 in the finals, but had very good notable wins against Shazoo, and more importantly, a team of Yemen, Jessie and Stocki, who they beat 2-1 in the losers finals (they were sent there by We Dem Girlz 0-3). Overall this is a very good start for a new team, and for them to be thrown straight into the rankings is impressive. The change from ViolentPanda to Flarke might raise questions, but in my opinion Flarke has been one of the best players flying under the radar for the past few months, and although he might not be at Panda’s level mechanically, he isn’t quite as silly as that boy. The question of who is cuter still remains though. All in all it’s a brilliant start for a new team, and there are very high hopes for both this team, and their sister team Blaze, with Marvin Gaye mentioning some very good scrims results, against top level teams, that he heard on the grapevine.

Precision Z

Roster: Tequilaz, Mikageishi, Dadooh

I'll be blunt. This was an absolutely disastrous week for Precision Z. I'm talking being 1st place in Mario Kart and then getting hit by 2 red shells, a blue shell, 5 green shells, lightning, and then finishing the race in 8th bad. Let's start with Tuesday's GFINITY, where they beat Challengers 3-2, and then eff0rt 3-0. Good start, no complaints there, but then they lost 3-1 to Gentlemen, which was pretty surprising. On Friday's GFINITY they ended up losing 3-2 to SnK eSports in their 3rd match. Another surprising result. They did not participate in Rocket Royale this week, but they did play in Mock-it on Saturday, and it didn't get much better. In round 3 they faced Team Shazoo, where they lost 2-0...which was pretty shocking to be honest. They then got 1-0ed by SK in the losers bracket. In ESL they made it to the Ro 16 where they lost 3-0 to SK Gaming, formerly JJJ Squad. This gives Precision Z a total of 4 (5 if you include the 1-0) losses to teams ranked below them, all within 1 week. The only notable wins they got this week was vs. eff0rt and Challengers, both outside the top 10.

Doomsee

SK Gaming

Roster: Krazack, JHZER, Ryuk

The team now known as SK Gaming jump into the top 10 this week after a series of well rounded performances last week. Whilst they didn't do anything spectacular, certain teams ranked above them have been falling behind, and SK picked up a couple of nice wins just to edge them up one spot. To start with, on Friday's GFinity they 3-0ed Unirvalled in their 2nd match, but lost 3-1 to KA-POW in the next. They didn't participate in Rocket Royale last week but they did play in ESL, where they beat Precision Z in the Ro 16 and ended up losing 3-2 to SnK. The continuing decline of Team Solid's performances lately has pushed a few teams upwards, which is good for SK, but that #10 to #16 region is an absolute mess, to be honest. Any team can beat any team and I expect it to look completely different next week.
