eu Power Rankings {6/21/16 - 6/28/16}

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!

We Dem Girlz

Roster: Remkoe, gReazy, Maestro

We Dem Girlz only played in one tournament last week and that was Mock-It. They won the whole thing pretty easily, beating teams such as Aeriality 2-1, Mock-It 2-0, and then Aeriality 3-0 again. They had a couple of close shaves at the beginning vs. some very unknown teams, but they got into the flow by the end of the tournament and simply stomped on everyone. However, that's all they needed to take 1st place because Flipsid3 didn't play at all last week, which means WDG take the number 1 spot and receive their participation reward!

Now, onto the RLCS. The group stages for Q2 start this week but where do WDG stand? Well, pretty much exactly where they want to be. After getting 2nd in Q1 they didn't need to play in the RLCS open qualifiers for Q2, and they currently sit on 860 points. We don't know exactly where WDG need to place in Q2 to qualify for the Live Finals because that depends heavily on the placements of other teams, but if they get 4th or higher they are guaranteed a spot in the Live Finals, no matter where the other teams place. And that's just to guarantee it! There are plenty of ways WDG could still make the LAN even if they placed 6th, and since We Dem Girlz have consistently been in the top 3 for many months now, it seems extremely likely that We Dem Girlz will make the LAN.

Flipsid3 Tactics

Roster: Markydooda, Kuxir97, M1k3rules, mye_bipod_4shor

Flipside spent 15 minutes revising for their exams, thought they’d done quite well and took a small month break, now it’s the night before the exam and no one's sure how they’ll perform, least of all themselves. They’ve been exceptionally indefatigable with their laziness, and it’s come to bite them with a knock down to 2nd place in the rankings. They did attempt to play Friday Gfinity as a team, but pretty unsurprisingly a certain member of the team fell asleep and so they played 2v3 and were knocked out by Team Enjoy. To Flipside, Robbie Brady is probably the most important person who hits balls around professionally at this minute, but they’re gonna need to get over that and focus on balls that don’t really exist. With the RLCS coming up they’ll start playing again, and will get a chance to take back their number 1 spot. In my personal opinion i would say that they deserved to be kept at the top until it’s been undeniably taken off them, but it is very possible that this lack of playing will get them incontrovertibly pushed beneath other teams when they do show. All we can do is sit and wait for now and see how much F3’s lack of practice will hinder them for RLCS, and how long it’ll take them to get back the number 1 spot. I’ll throw out my 2 cents, and guess that they will underperform for the start of RLCS, but by the online finals will back in the position to win it all.

Supersonic Avengers

Roster: ELMP, Snaski, Doomsee, Kasabi

The boys of Supersonic Avengers had a solid week on their way to climbing up another ladder rung on the power rankings. Starting off with the ESL May monthly finals where they had a fairly easy run into winning it by sweeping aside Cow Nose, eSportsWall, and Gentlemen. A few days passed and Supersonic Avengers played in Friday's GFinity which would be their way to warm up for RLCS qualifiers. In GFinity they had a fairly tough run to the finals. Along the way they found themselves up against Complex, Mock-it eSports EU and Team Celerity but wound up beating those 3 teams 3-0 in each respective series. In the finals they found themselves against current #6 ranked Crown & Jewels which resulted in a close-fought battle but ultimately SA were victorious 4-3 in the series and had a good challenge to prepare themselves for RLCS qualifiers.

Last time around in RLCS qualifiers for group stage Supersonic Avengers were upset by RG eSports (now Team Solid) and Precision Z. From being around Doomsee ever since those qualifiers he was determined to qualify for this second group stage and prove that Supersonic Avengers are a top team. So this group stage qualifier was less brutal for them since they were able to beat Unspecified, Complex, and Team ENJOY en route to group stage.

This team is looking to win the RLCS group stage and hopes for other results to go their way so they can make it to the RLCS LAN in Los Angeles.

Mock-it eSports EU

Roster: Paschy90, Turbopolsa, Sikii

Mockit EU Drop another place this week into 4th, with Supersonic Avengers surpassing them. Many factors contribute to this, but overall over the past couple of weeks it has been made clear that there still seems to be a problem with the team’s synergy. They just don’t fit well together. As individuals there’s nothing wrong with them, but Turbopolsa’s introduction hasn’t made as significant a difference as first thought when he replaced Miztik. For their week’s results they first fell to Supersonic Avengers in Friday’s Gfinity 0-3. This obviously had a huge role in determining whether SA climbed above them or not. SA just looked far more structured and visibly looked more organised, while Mockit were left disjointed. Mockit EU’s next games came in their own tournament on Saturday where they took out PZ 2-1 but notably lost 0-2 to WDG, another top team they get swept by. To make this tournament worse they lost to Aeriality, a team they really should never be losing to.

Next came their RLCS qualifier bracket where they managed to qualify for the group stage by taking out Cow Nose 2-0 and then just barely getting past C&J 2-1. Looking ahead, Mockit’s chance of making the LAN are very favourable thanks to the points they amassed in the first RLCS stage. This is not to say their qualification will be guaranteed however, they need to overcome the problems they have with their team system as at the moment they’re not a fully functioning team and are relying on individual ability alone to win games. If it weren’t for the fact a few unexpected lesser teams qualified, and that Kapow completely capitulated in the open qualifier, I’d have said Mockit could have been in trouble. However, as it is, they just need to not completely fail and they should be fine for LAN qualification as there are very few times likely to surpass their points total.

The Flying Dutchmen

Roster: Dogu, Jessiepinkmaan, PauliepauINL, Vogan

The boys who are probably sat bored as hell, while every other country in Europe is being able to enjoy the Euro’s, have been able to play Rocket League, and have had a decent showing for the week. They played Friday’s Gfinity and beat Team Solid 3-0 before falling to remkoe 1v3 0-3 to get knocked out the tournament. The other tournament they competed in was the RLCS qualifiers, where they gave a very good and quick performance (similar to how I assume they’d be in bed) and took out Complain 2-1 and effort 2-0 to qualify for the finals. This is important, as with Ka Pow’s failure to make it into the finals, they stand a very good chance of taking the 4th place to the LAN finals in boring old Beverly Hills.

Crown & Jewels

Roster: Sebadam, Taurex, Flarke, solid99npnp

Gfinity:

Supersonic Avengers and Frost had an epic battle in the Gfinity Final on Friday. Despite SA battering every team they have seen recently, they manage to take it to a tense 4-3 game that really proved that they can tango with the Rocket League Giants.

RLCS:

Had a tough draw having to face JJJ and Mockit in main bracket; in losers they went straight into playing Precision Z.

Firstly JJJ were split apart into individual ‘J’s and bent and contorted until they looked like @ signs, to paraphrase, A convincing 2-0 win.

After that they got another top 10 power ranking team, this time in the form of Mockit EU. Sebadam Literally went beast mode in game 2 scoring some marvelous goals, 1v3ing his tough opposition, similar to that of a Season 2 Grand Champ amongst beginners in Season 3 Solo Standard.

Frost moved into losers bracket and bump into Precision Z, and probably due to some disruption in focus after losing a tough, high pressure game in front of their biggest audience they’ve ever had, lost 2-0. Playing under pressure will soon become more normal for the top teams, which C & J most certainly have proven themselves to be.

JJJ Squad

Roster: Krazack, JHZER, Ryuk

Eeeeeeeeh it wasn't a fantastic week for JJJ, let's put it that way. We'll start off with some positive results though over at GFINITY. Take it away, Doomsee!

Thanks, Doomsee. So, their first big win of the week was vs. KA-POW where they won 3-2. In the past this would've been a fantastic result but ever since Turbopolsa left the team KA-POW have been plummeting faster than an Olympic bobsled team. However, they were ranked above JJJ at the time, so this is definitely a plus for them. Next they took out CY.Tempest 3-1 and a team consisting of Turbo, Jessie and Johnny 3-0. Not too shabby. Their run was to be short lived however as they were obliterated by Mashski, a team consisting of a mashed potato and a ski boot (it was Maestro, Ash and Snaski. Woah, shocking!)

Next up is the big'un: RLCS! They did not do well. Their first opponent was a fellow "Mid Top 10 Madness" team: Crown & Jewels Frost. C&J took this one with a clean sweep, winning 2-0. This sent JJJ into the losers bracket where they beat Cow Nose 2-0, but then lost 2-1 to Team ENJOY, the underdogs of the whole event. This means that JJJ did not qualify for groups in Q2. Fudge.

Precision Z

Roster: Tequilaz, Mikageishi, Dadooh

Precision Z are the source of the most varied ranks this week, and for good reason. This week showcased some of the inconsistencies with Precision Z, in both GFinity tournaments they played, tuesday and thursday, they didn't have too much success by losing out to Mashski on Tuesday and to FTW.pro on Thursdays in tournaments that they had a high chance of succeeding in. The last tournament before RLCS that PZ played in was Mock-it EU tournament and they had an expected results of beating Eff0rt and losing to Mock-it eSports EU to drop into the loser's bracket where they decided not to play any loser's bracket games.

The tournament that's making them tough to rank is the big one, RLCS. They didn't have a good start, losing to Hyperion eSport, but their loser's bracket run is the biggest shock. During their loser's bracket run they beat a plenty of well-known teams and those teams were Team Shazoo, KA-POW, Complex, and Crown & Jewels. Their run was ultimately stopped by Shoot n Goal, now the #10 team, which was shocking considering who they had to beat to get to that point.

On June 22nd it was revealed that Precision Z would be temporarily disbanding which means this will be their last foray into the rankings for the time being.

Roster: al0t, Sniperkid138, ViolentPanda

Weeks have gone by now and KAPOW have not been the same since Turbopulsa moved to Mockit EU. It’s like if you have cereal with milk put on second, everything works perfectly, then someone forces you to put milk in first, and some parts of your cereal are soggy, whilst others dry, and it doesn't really work together.

As one of the favourites to go to RLCS LAN after Qualifier 1s performance, it was a disappointing weekend losing to Team Enjoy 2-0 then quickly knocked out in the Losers by Precision Z. Probably the most unexpected team to not qualify.

Let’s go back to Gfinity Last Tuesday. JJJ Squad won 3-2 removing KAPOW in the Quarters. Pop in a time machine, go back 1 month and announce that result, and people would say ‘here comes dat boi’... or whatever they said back then… but you would also get told that result is unlikely. The fact of the matter is the KAPOW name does not represent the same caliber of players it used to.

Shoot n Goal

Roster: Fanatiz, Killarnaud, Chausette, Fakyy

SnG’s continued presence in the top 10 this week is almost entirely due to their qualification to the group stage of RLCS. This is because their results elsewhere really don’t show the same level of success, as well as their in game performance looking very unconvincing and quite poor at times. In Gfinity on Friday SnG fell to Aeriality 2-3. Then in RLCS SnG had to come all the way through the loser’s bracket due to losing their winner’s bracket final in the first stage the previous week. Their notable games in this run include a 2-0 win over Complain (Yemen, Ring and X3MW), A 2-1 win over Team Solid and finally a 2-0 win over Precision Z to get them group stage qualification. The overall quality of RLCS games in this last 64 stage of the open qualifiers was quite atrocious. It led to quite a few unexpected results which certainly helped SnG’s route to qualification as teams like Precision Z and Kapow just completely flopped and therefore allowed lesser teams a much easier chance of making it where they would not usually.
