Power Ranking Methodology

These rankings were provided by a committee of people that offer different views in the Rocket League Community. Each member of the committee has a different method for how they rank the teams, though they are consistent and similar. The members of this committee consider several factors when determining their rankings and the data referenced is typically from more than just the most recent week of competition.

 


 

Power Ranking Expansion

 

We wanted to expand the number of members on the Power Ranking Committee, so over the past few weeks we’ve given some of the best applicants a trial run. The trials are now over and we will now be voting as a committee and bringing on some of the applicants permanently.

UPSETS OF THE WEEK

  • GFinity Invitational – Noble eSports (4) – FlipSid3 Tactics (0)

 


 

POWER RANKINGS

#1 FlipSid3 Tactics: Markydooda / Kuxir97 / M1k3rules |

There’s no arguement to be had that FlipSid3 is the undisputed #1 team in Europe still, and their performance this past Saturday during the Gfinity Rocket League Invitational was a big indication of that. Despite losing 4-0 to Noble eSports in the first round and being severely threatened in a 4-3 win against Spectral, FlipSid3 would manage to overcome the likes of SK Gaming (4-0), Crown & Jewels (4-1), myXMG (4-0), and Supersonic Avengers (5-0) to capture the entire tournament. Though their series against myXMG in the RLC Pro League would be a bit closer (3-2), F3 would still triumph and remain Europe’s top team without doubt. -Shalthis

 

#2 Supersonic Avengers: ELMP / gReazy / Maestro / Snaski | Up 1

The climb of Supersonic Avengers was not surprising to anyone. Despite a startling start to the RLC Pro League regular season, the Avengers would come back with a fury and stand toe-to-toe with some of the top Euroepean teams and even shut down former #1 Crown & Jewels, to whom they would have suffered that 5-0 lost just a few weeks prior. Supersonic Avengers are now in the same position that many teams before them have stood – on the precipise of dethroning the kings. Only one team has stood here and managed to defeat them, and now they’re falling from grace. What fate awaits the Avengers? Only time will tell. -Shalthis

 

#3 Crown & Jewels: Paschy90 / Yeezy / Killerno7 / Sikiicem | Down 1

There’s no doubt in my mind that C&J has been one of the most consistent teams out there in the recent past, however they ran into a rough spot in the last two weeks which has allowed opportinuties from other teams to show off their abilities. With the Gfinity Invitational giving us some really great match ups, what we saw out of C&J was a 2-4 loss to the previous #3 SA and then a difficult 1-4 loss to F3. Granted they did get a very strong 4-1 win over Team Rocket, and then the next day in the Pro League a 3-2 win against Noble. It wasn’t too long ago that C&J had 5-0’d SA (Granted there were very close matches) so we have to take an overall look to see what is changing with C&J. Personally, I see a team that had been very confident all around lose strength in their offense and as a result have fallen back to trying to rely on defensive rebounds -Därkened

 

#4 myXMG: al0t / Sniperkid138 / Turbopolsa | Up 1

Moving up to 4th this week, myXMG come out with a decently strong showing over the past week with wins over SK Gaming and Noble eSports. Their losses to Supersonic Avengers and FlipSid3 Tactics certainly don’t help their ranking, but don’t really hurt them much either. In fact, taking FlipSid3 to 5 games in the RLC Pro League shows that they still have the potential to take some games off even the best teams in EU. The next few weeks will be a tough test for this group as they try to lock down a spot in the RLC Pro League playoffs. -CloudFuel

 

#5 Spectral:TJShorty / remkoe / Miztik | Up 2

Perhaps one giving us some of the most hype matches lately (with the exception of Noble vs F3), spectral is on the rise, and if they can iron out their kinks, they are a contender for being a top 3 team. Why do I say this? Well if you paid any attention to the EU scene you’d have noticed that Spectral dropped early against SA but powered through the lower brackets with a 4-0 against TR, a very close 4-3 vs Noble, and then what could’ve been a monstrous win over F3, but finished as 3-4 loss. Not to mentioned that they shut down SK 4-1 in the Pro League. So if there’s anything to say about Spectral’s week, it’s that they are looking to hop in their steamroller and break down anyone that stands in their way. -Dürkened

 

#6 Noble eSports:Skyline / Vogan / Stocki1997 / Meeps |

A revitalization may be at hand for the boys of Noble eSports. Despite several weeks of hit-or-miss competition, the team made a convincing statement against FlipSid3 Tactics by defeating them 4-0 in Gfinity then moving on to take a pair of games off of the former top team, Crown & Jewels. While there is still work to be done for Noble to clear a path back into the top 5, we can see the building blocks already in place. -Shalthis

 

#7 SK Gaming:X3MW / Dadooh / JHZER | Down 3

It’s been a pretty rough week for SK Gaming. With not a single win under their belt, they have fallen down to 7th place. In the GFInity Invitational they lost 4-3 to myXMG followed by a 4-0 loss to F3. And in this week’s Pro League they were beaten 4-1 by a rising Spectral. SK have been slipping week by week since Yemen left the team in a majestic fashion, but could it be that he was the one keeping their team near the top? Tune in next week to find out on Doomsee Watch! -Doomsee

 

#8 The 3 Musketeers:ViolentPanda / Ryuk / RingTelefonRing | Up1

T3M may have had some rough patches in the past, causing them to be bumped down a few places, but this week they’re back in it after their 2nd ESL victory in 3 weeks. Taking on Comrade Gaming, ECN Surf, and Stoic in the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Finals respectively, T3M beat them all relatively comfortably. Their main challenge was Stoic, but with a 4-2 victory to claim the title, T3M have shown that they desverve their 8th place. They are now on the outer edge of the Pro League teams, with plenty of opportunity to rise up into their ranks at upcoming GFinity tournaments.-Doomsee

 

#9 Stoïc: Intrauzes / Unknow / Kaydop |New

After spending several weeks on the outskirts of the Top 10, Stoïc find themselves vaulting up to 9th place this week. With a strong showing in ESL Cup #27, they’ve proven that they can certainly hang with some of the best teams in EU. Taking wins over Torched, Galactic Lions, and RG eSports helped them get to this position, but the win over Team Rocket and taking 2 out of 6 games off of The 3 Musketeers really helped to push them up past the #10 spot. They don’t often get a chance to face many teams in the 8-15 range as they have typically lost to teams in the 1-7 range in the recent past. They’ll need to continue taking advantage of these opportunities as they arise to ensure that they can keep a foothold on their recently earned Top 10 rank. -CloudFuel

 

#10 Team Rocket:Doomsee / Cole / Wrong_Way_Woody / Oneill | Down 2

Team Rocket find themselves trending slightly downward this week mainly due to the losses to Stoïc and Comrade Gaming. The losses to Crown & Jewels and Spectral in the GFinity Invitational don’t really help or hurt their circumstances, but those would have certainly been favorable games to win. In ESL Cup #27, Team Rocket narrowly defeated Dot Dot Dot and ECN Surf which raises the question of whether those teams are closer to Top 10 status than previous results would indicate or whether Team Rocket is at danger of falling out of the Top 10 for only the 2nd time since the dawn of the Power Rankings. Perhaps it was simply an off day, but going purely off of the results it is clear that Team Rocket needs to provide some big wins this upcoming week to maintain their current Top 10 status. -CloudFuel

 

#10 AneVia RL:FaNaTiz / Killarnaud / S_TONYDARK / Chausette45 / wesh92 / PlaY0urLife |

AneVia didn’t partake in any significant events this week, so I personally look at what they did last week and compare what the teams around them did this week to see if any teams clearly stood out as being more impressive. Aside from Stoïc and Comrade Gaming, none of the other teams that competed this week really outshined what AneVia was able to accomplish last week. This, for me, was enough to leave them at 10 this week, but they will have to provide some big wins this upcoming week in order for me to justify not dropping them. -CloudFuel
