na Power Rankings {7/12/16 - 7/19/16}

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, Sadjunior, Flow

First of all, congratulations to Jacob, Fireburner, and Sadjunior for winning the second RLCS qualifier! Taking #1 in the most recent development of the largest tournament in the competitive scene is one of the more convincing ways to take the #1 spot on the power rankings. KoU came back strong this week from what I would consider a poor performance in the week prior. The very hot Lucky Bounce had a lot of momentum coming into this finals weekend as the #1 seed, but KoU dealt with them handily in a 4-1 series. The final against Exodus was a very close 7 game series with KoU taking a 4-3 victory. The three players that make up this starting roster have been around for an extremely long time in the competitive scene. Such experience seems to grant KoU cool, confident heads during the most pressure intensive matches. They know their game, they stick to it, and they get results. I’m quite interested to see how cool this group can keep their nerves during the RLCS LAN event.

Exodus

Roster: Moses, Garrett, Turtle, Huskih, Stev

With Online Finals concluding last weekend, the reality is starting sink in for these top NA teams. Exodus have had a long road to travel to get to where they are now, and with LAN just around the corner, GarrettG, Moses and Turtle (and let’s not forget our Stev!) need to keep their cool and keep up the practice before they all head to LA for the Offline Finals. These guys were looking strong in the Online Final, pulling a 4-1 from Genesis, and a 3-4 from Kings, who are sitting just above them in this week's Power Rankings. At the moment, Exodus sits comfortably in position 2, but I'm sure they're willing to do what it takes to push out of their comfort zone and rise to the top of NA once again. Let’s see if they have what it takes.

Lucky Bounce

Roster: Timbathy, Darkfire, September, Torment, JKnaps

Lucky Bounce remain one of Rocket League’s most active teams. They wrapped up a 3rd place finish in the RLCS Online Finals losing first their semifinal match to Kings of Urban (4-1) and beating Genesis (4-3) after nearly being reverse swept for third place. They placed second in ESL 46 falling only to Low5ive, Zanejackey, and Chad playing under the Failure to Launch banner. They handed defeats to Empyreal (3-2), DatZit Gaming (3-2), Heroes of Tomorrow (3-0), and Chef (3-0) along the way. We are now including results for Shift Pro League in our ranking considerations and this week Lucky Bounce stormed through SPL undefeated until they met up-and-coming Momentum who dealt Lucky Bounce a 1-4 defeat in the final round. Lucky Bounce is participating in the new GSCL and Rocket Royal starts up this weekend so Rocket League’s busiest team will have even more opportunity to prove they’ve earned the #3 spot in NA.

iBUYPOWER Cosmic

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

Not a lot to report in this front as iBP Cosmic didn’t play. Their main issue now is after a poor RLCS group stage Cosmic need to regroup and make a real statement in the build up to the LAN. The talent in this roster is incredible and if iBP are to come out on top they need to couple it with some hard work. With the rumours that a lack of confidence struck Lachinio and their defensive issues it may be time to call for help from an outside source to help work on these issues. For my first write up it's almost fitting that I write about the first pro team I watched just hopefully they can get back on top!

Genesis

Roster: Pluto, Quinn Lobdell, Espeon, HWS*, Kovanel*

This past week hasn't been very active for most teams in the top 10, with only Online Finals and ESL #46 showing any sort of result after last week's Power Rankings. Genesis was only found competing in the Online Finals this week, resulting in 1-4 to Exodus and 3-4 to Lucky Bounce. Although this wasn't their best showing of results, after securing the LAN I'm sure their guard has been let down a bit. However, it's nice to see that all of Genesis' players have been keeping active during the weekdays; the extra practice will definitely show in their future performance at the Offline Finals. I feel it wouldn't hurt for any of these teams to pop into the "lower tier" tournaments for the next few weeks just so they get more practice together.

Mock-it eSports NA

Roster: Insolences, Low5ive, Rizzo, Zanejackey

Mock-it has not gotten their full roster together to play a tournament this week (since the end of the RLCS group stage). However, the strong performance that they showed during the last day of the group stage has me convinced that they have what it takes to fight back to the top of the rankings. With RLCS coming to an end and the hiatus of Rocket Royale growing longer and longer, I sincerely hope that Mock-it can start getting together to compete in some of the smaller tournaments. Now that there are so many strong rosters filling the top ranks, only the teams that put time into the most tournaments and practice will be able to maintain the top 3 spots. Mock-it can do it, I just question whether or not they will.

Retrospect

Roster: Genocop, Chrome, KyleMasc

Retrospect were in a great position after Week 1 of the RLCS Qualifier 2 Group Stage, but they fell short during Week 2 thus no Online Final appearance and subsequently no LAN appearance. Klassux has left the team and, for now, we are unsure of what lies ahead for Retrospect. Despite the departure of Klassux, they do retain their history, but they did not participate in any competitive Rocket League events this past week. They are participating in GSCL (GamerSaloon Championship League) which started yesterday July 14th with KyleMasc in place of the departed Klassux. | Post write-up addition: Retrospect will now be known as Foresight.

2 EZ

Roster: Ostyn, EyeIgnite, Toxic, Kxnetic

When you break into the top 10 in a week where a lot of teams above you are taking a break, you would be forgiven for taking a break also. Not these guys though 2 EZ have got the taste of success in their mouth and had a strong vVv showing, defeating everyone in their path 2-0. Including a few of the on the bubble teams. Albeit their esl showing was much weaker going down 2-0 to ps4 baddies. The main reasons behind my decision to rank them higher is because 2 EZ is beginning to show form to establish themselves firmly in the top 10. They do need to (as said last week) put themselves into situations to at least take games off the bigger teams if they are going to move onto bigger and better things.

Selfless

Roster: Amoney_tv, Sizz, Matt

Not much to report here as Selfless, along with the Retro and MockNA, took this week off. Hopefully it works to their advantage and they come back with some results soon enough. I, however, can't but feel skeptical of this as after the previous group stage the team disappeared from the scene entirely until the second qualifier rolled around. Lack of results aside, Selfless still isn't a pushover team. They're definitely a step above the bubble boys as they managed to not get swept in any of their RLCS games. They did however cement a spot at the bottom by losing every set 1-4. For their sake, we'll hopefully get some results soon. Otherwise we'll have a good fight on our hands as we toss their spot into the group of teams frothing at the mouth to take their place.

Momentum

Roster: Dappur, watsupmijo, Timi_F, Air*

Speaking of which, with this week's addition of the Shift Pro League results we have a new addition to the rankings! Riding in with some Momentum, Dappur, Miijo, and Timi have been destroying SPL by taking every tournament thus far (outside of the introductory week) and just last tourney ran away with wins over, well... everyone! Notable they took Chef (a name we've seen making a little noise recently) 3-0 and then went on to take Lucky Bounce 4-1. They've definitely done well to take LuBo this week, but if they really want to climb this ladder, we're gonna need to see them diversify there playing pool and get some games in against some other well known teams. They sit in a nice place to start fighting their way through the teams in their way, and maybe we'll see them more often in the coming weeks. We're always welcome to more competition, and Momentum seem to be bringing it! Good luck guys! You've got a long road ahead of you! -A_Lovely_Badger
