eu Power Rankings {11/2/15 - 11/9/15}

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!

FlipSid3 Tactics

Roster: Markydooda, Kuxir97, M1k3rules

The fight between #1 and #2 this week was closer than it has ever been. Despite the triumphant return of M1k3rules, which netted FlipSid3 a victory at Friday's Gfinity tournament, the great 'Kings of Clutch' came into Sunday's Rocket Royale tournament with the sort of effort that could be outmatched by Queen Elizabeth in the 100 meter dash. Managing to squeeze through the Winner's Bracket, history would be made as FlipSid3 - operating at full compliment - would lose their first major tournament by giving up not just one but TWO Best-of-5 series back-to-back. Though it's only one tournament, and only one week, their position atop the leaderboard is precarious and Complain is threatening.

Complain

Roster: X3MW, Dadooh, JHZER, Yemen

Putting Complain at #2 was a difficult decision and was made mainly due to consistency. FlipSid3 Tactics, perennially the top team, has shown that they have consistently top-tier performance which failed them this week. However, Complain shone like a beacon in a night by setting the Rocket Royale tournament ablaze with two consecutive Best of 5 series wins against FlipSid3 in order to take the tournament. Their showing on Sunday proved just how potent of a team they are and gave a platform to X3MW who earned Tournament MVP honors with relative ease. One more week of this caliber of performance and FlipSid3's days as Kings of EU may be coming to an end.

Swarm Gaming

Roster: Paschy90, De_boer_bros, Gambit

Swarm Gaming is the sort of team that will always be in this conversation, and with the recent addition of Gambit (formerly Kings of Urban), they've adjusted their strategy to try and match the three forward striker style of FlipSid3 Tactics while also meeting their own needs as a dominant EU squad. Unfortunately, this week, the obstacles remained the same. Despite making it to the finals of Gfinity, it was FlipSid3 who would set them down by winning 4 straight after losing 2. On Sunday, Swarm would have a difficult time with the new kids on the block, Complain, who would send them to the Loser's Bracket and then eliminate them from competition all-together in the LB Finals. Perhaps with a little more time with Gambit under their belt, Swarm will sort out their weaknesses and find their winning ways once again.

Dot Dot Dot

Roster: Ash, BicycleThief, Maestro

Dot Dot Dot lives up to their name as the team who will leave you speechless. Coming practically out of nowhere, Dots began by bursting into the top tier of EU, beating teams that no one expected, and performing consistently better week over week. Qualifying for Rocket Royale with a 3-0 series win over Team Rocket, Dots would move into the tournament Sunday and stir things up early, sending iBP Cosmic into the Loser's Bracket (before being sent there themselves by FlipSid3 Tactics), only to eliminate PeaceHater in 3 straight games and qualify for the next Rocket Royale by placing in the Top 4. While they still have a little ways to go, any team in the top of EU needs to keep an eye on Dot Dot Dot, because they'll steal the words right out of your mouth.

Noble eSports

Roster: Oneill_Clan, Vogan, Skyline, Meeps, Stocki1997

The former Team Shazoo had a bit of a hot and cold week. Falling to Spectral 2-3 in the Rocket Royale Qualifiers, but then beating them 3-0 the next day, Noble would make a push into Sunday's ESL tournament and make a little bit of history of their own. Competing against a number of other Top 10 teams, Noble would blaze a path through the ESL Europe Cup #14 and become the first team ever to win the ESL tournament without losing a single game. Though there are still things to work on - and finding the right formula of players is one of them - Noble may have cracked the code and could start challenging for that top spot next week.

Shalthis

PeaceHater

Roster: xGodLiightx, Killerno7, Sikiicem

On the weeks that PeaceHater plays, they're quite dangerous. Unfortunately, they sometimes neglect actually playing. This week, however, they came into Rocket Royale with a solid showing by taking out Smokin Rockets and Spectral to earn a spot in the tournament itself, managing to eliminate SnK eSports (formerly Apollo 11) in the Loser's Bracket before Dot Dot Dot sent them home early. The consistency lacks a bit of something, and for PeaceHater to really crack the top tier, they'll need to start playing more often and perhaps in other tournaments. Sometimes, lack of experience - or even a bit of the ol' rocket rust - can be your biggest downfall.

Team Rocket

Roster: Doomsee, I Am A Tree, Noir1992, Cole

Oh, Team Rocket. While I love to say how much I enjoy my buddies in Team Rocket, and how entertaining they are, I would be remiss if I overlooked the steady decline in their performance as of late. This past week, Rocket failed to make it past Dot Dot Dot in the Rocket Royale qualifiers and also fell to FlipSid3 Tactics in the QuaterFinals of Gfinity. While not catastrophic, the bits of Team Rocket that I'm used to seeing - the bits that gave Rocket their first ESL win and a host of top 2 finishes - are getting a bit harder to find. I'm hoping, for the sake of competition and because I like these guys a lot, that next week is a bit friendlier to them and they come out with guns blazing in every tournament.

Smokin Rockets

Roster: Desgadelhado, Fredd97, Techtox, Scrub Killa

Smokin Rockets came into this week with some solid performances behind them. Despite not qualifying for Rocket Royale, Smokin Rockets did manage to place 3rd in ESL this week as well as the Top 16 for Gfinity. They've had a few issues with breaking through the upper half of the top 10, but certainly aren't the kind of team to be taken lightly. I'm expecting players like DESGADELHADO and Scrub Killa to take some of the 1v1 skills they showed off during Tuesday's ESL Aerial Cup and apply it to the team game. A little of that will take them to the next level and maybe edge past a few of these other teams.

Shalthis

YouMyZero

Roster: Linkuru, Anduru, D3tin

YouMyZero keeps fluttering around the lower part of the top 10 week in and week out, and I feel much of it has to do with consistency to performance. They seem to do WELL (placing in the top 4 of Gfinity, for example) but just not consistently well ENOUGH (placing in the top 16 of ESL and losing in the 1st round of the Rocket Royale Qualifiers, for example). While YMZ has the talent, I'm hoping to see them demonstrate regularly better performance going forward, and maybe - just maybe - they'll grab a higher spot.

Error 404 Name Not Found

Roster: BruTzz, Ganoph, Antonium, gReazy, Sputosky

The former Nice One Team may be unable to find their name, but they have found some quality wins this week, finally breaking through into the Top 10 despite being on the radar of every Power Ranking committee member for some time. Error 404 took a top 16 spot in Gfinity on Friday but followed that up two days later by finishing 2nd in the ESL Europe Cup. As long as Error 404 can keep finding big tournament victories, we can expect them to be a lot higher than 404 on these power rankings every week.
