na Power Rankings {9/30/15 - 10/7/15}

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!

Cosmic Aftershock

Roster: Kronovi, Gibbs, Sadjunior

Competitions need measuring sticks. Organizations like FC Barcelona or NY Yankees, when they’re at the top of their game, fuel tremendous passions, both for and against. In Rocket League, Cosmic Aftershock IS the measuring stick. Whether it’s kronovi as the best player, Gibbs as the greatest defender, or Sadjunior as the saddest, CA generates conversation among Rocket League followers throughout the internet. But in such a young e-sport like Rocket League, that reputation can be fleeting. This week, CA puts its reputation on the line once again in a gargantuan face-off against interloper, vQ Untethered --- a team they haven’t gone against in over 2 weeks, since the 4-2 victory on September 13 in the NA ESL #7 finals. Can CA maintain their #1 ranking once again? We’ll all be tuning in tomorrow to find out.

vQ Untethered

Roster: Lachinio, Pluto, Vafele

vQ Untethered are done being the bridesmaids. The dresses CA has picked out are just plain embarassing. Without Cosmic Aftershock in the field, they won ESL in pretty convincing fashion. This next week is huge though with a possibility of facing Cosmic Aftershock in 3 series across 3 tournaments. On Thursday they play for first in the Pro League. Saturday is the ESL Monthly Final, and Sunday is a possible ESL showdown as well. This is the week vQ gets to prove why they should be wearing white!

Kings of Urban

Roster: Gambit, Fireburner, KyleMasc

We haven't seen much from Kings of Urban as of late, but what we have seen has been somewhat of a mixed bag. Last week they lost to Flipsid3 Tactics (5-1) in the MLG Pro League. This sounds like a blowout, but a closer look at the stats from those games shows that every game was decided by 1 goal and that the total goal differential for the series was 4 (16 for F3 / 12 for KoU). Flipsid3 is currently the #1 ranked team in Europe and is definitely in the conversation for #1 team in the world, so the fact that KoU held this high-powered offense to just 16 goals in 6 games (besting Swarm Gaming who held them to 18 goals) is not something to be taken lightly. Then, just last night, Kings of Urban beats Perfect Storm in the MLG Pro League 5 games to 1. Again, while it may look like a blowout, the stats show that aside from game 4 every game was decided by 1 goal and the final goal differential was 6 (21 for KoU / 15 for PS). It's hard to tell if KoU is playing to their competition, but outside of having a formidable defense they do seem to be struggling to find an identity. With the overflowing amount of talent on this team's roster, however, the expectations are set very high for the Kings of Urban. For now, we wait to see if they stay at #3 or if they can take that next step and commandingly insert themselves into the conversation for #1.

DeVoid Gaming

Roster: zOctanez, TvLow5ive, cougycougs, FicklePlatypus

Ever seen a spot where business after business fails, regardless of how well it's operated? That’s our #4 spot. From Propulsion, to Perfect Storm, to Orange Creamsicle, to Titanium Ricochet, putting someone as my #4 has meant dire fortunes ahead. DeVoid Gaming has the stuff to push my inadvertent curse away, but can they do it remains to be seen. With cougycougs regularly playing they’ve performed well in Pro League, but his absence on Sundays has created a “void” so to speak. For now, DeVoid goes as far as cougycougs availability will take them, although eventually I can see low5ive and zOctanez taking up the slack. Thursday’s 6 games apiece against EU powerhouses Flipsid3 and Swarm will test them to their limits, however, so we’ll have to see how they fare. A playoff spot in MLG Pro League, regardless of how it’s obtained in the final regular season matches, will be quite the feather in DeVoid Gaming’s cap.

Perfect Storm

Roster: UsedWolf, Jacob, Elmirfudd

Perfect Storm played Kings of Urban close in the Pro League on Tuesday night. They had two long overtimes and one last second miss to force OT against KOU. Sadly they could only close out one game and it looks like their playoff dreams are dead. On Sunday they had the wonderful boy toy Doomsee fill in for Usedwolf and made the finals interesting against vQ but I can't credit them too much for this since they have not shown that much promise with their regular roster. They are 5th only because no other team has shown enough.

Apollo 11

Roster: Huskih, Dan, Lars, Azi

As my team to watch from last week, Apollo 11 really pulled through for me, making it to the ESL semifinals by taking out Double Tap, stealing a game from Untethered in a 3-1 series loss, then finishing off Doesn’t Matter in the consolation game. Once Lars gets his internet/gaming situation settled, I think they’ll be even better. Just need to solidify that lineup, keep working on team-play, and I think we’ll see Apollo 11 as a fixture in the top 10 list rather than a one week interloper.

Double Tap

Roster: Flow, Jamesbot, Pulse696, Sir PancakeIII

This was a bit of a down week for the Double Tap crew as they fell in the Quarter-Finals of ESL Cup #9 to newcomers Apollo 11. Previously, this squad had been steadily rising through the ranks and making it further in the ESL competitions as each week passed. Aside from Venenum, they didn't beat any notable teams and are in need of a big win this weekend to ensure that they can remain in the Top 10. They'll have a tough test on Saturday in the ESL Monthly Finals, but a solid showing in this event will help their case in a big way.

Doesn't Matter

Roster: caNoNjj, Mech, Zanejackey

This squad powered through the early rounds of ESL Cup #9, narrowly beating Pandorum Gaming (previously GhostBoosters) and taking out teams like Air Force Two & Team Fresh (who took out a GoodFellas squad and Titanium Ricochet). They made it all the way to Semi-Finals before they were blanked 3-0 by a Perfect Storm squad aided by the sub services of Doomsee. In the 3rd place match, they fell to the newcomers Apollo 11 by a score of 3-1. As a team that I have been watching for a few weeks now, they have definitely done enough to earn a relatively consistent spot in our Top 10, but now they need to starting pushing the teams ahead of them to keep from falling back and losing ground to the number of teams eagerly attempting to overtake them.

Orange Creamsicle

Roster: Edwind, Quinn Lobdell, Kuniv

Orange Creamsicle had a bit of a frozen treat meltdown this past Sunday at ESL, inexplicably losing to the unknown The Crimson Meme in r128, who also went on to lose in the next round. So this wasn’t even an up and comer. After replacing enigma_please --- who was a very solid member of the rotation, but just not available enough --- they seem to have slipped in their performance. Here’s to hoping Smite Pro Edwind, teammate Quinn Lobdell, and Kuniv, or whoever they line up with, figure things out so they can return to the tasty orange slice deliciousness we’ve grown to love.

Titanium Ricochet

Roster: Cazaz911, Klassux, WaZe_One87

After a deep run last week in ESL, Titanium Ricochet came back down to earth with a bad loss to Team Fresh. Will they travel back to space in search of water this week? They have a chance this weekend in the ESL Monthly Final to move up a spot or two. Double Tap is waiting for them in the first round. If they want to stay in the top 10 they must perform against Double Tap or have another decent run in ESL on Sunday.
