Rainbow Six Siege Power Rankings, September 13th

Here's The Thing
September 13, 2019

We are pleased to announce that Rainbow Six Siege will be our first title for the official power rankings that will be accessible via our website. Creating a culture around power rankings has always been a passion of ours from the get go and we are extremely excited to be launching with such a strong title. 


For this to be made possible, we reached out to some of the top talent in Australia and New Zealand to see if they would be willing to help us build on this culture. We found that this list of talent are striving to create a stronger community for Rainbow Six: Siege in this region and will do anything to do so; which lines up perfectly with our mission statement. 


Our Rainbow Six: Siege panelists are the following:

                   Without further ado, here is our Rainbow Six: Siege power rankings for the month of August.


1.) Fnatic

“As we approached the Melbourne Esports Open this past month, we went into it knowing that whomever took it out between Fnatic and Orgless, would assert themselves as the top team in this region. In the end, Fnatic proved why they are the top team. Not to mention that they are consistently the top team during all APAC qualifiers that they attend, granting them spots in all possible global events for this region. Whilst they are also looking even better with the recent roster changes.”

- James “Devmarta” Stewart


2.) Orgless

“After results prior to the Melbourne Esports Open, many thought that Orgless were potentially the top team in this region. During the playoffs it seemed to be that way, but the grand finals against Fnatic seemed to be their detriment; losing in a very rough way. But that’s not to go without saying they are definitely a top contender, as they are one of the only teams to consistently go up against our fellow APAC teams and take down Fnatic from time to time.”

- Samuel “MonkeyFist” Royals


3.) Oddity

“Oddity’s roster has been consistently close to the top of the Pro League for a few seasons now, despite roster changes. Whilst finishing fourth in the most recent season of the Pro League, they took a map off of Fnatic at the Six Masters and came uncomfortably close to taking the series out; earning themselves third place in our power rankings.”

- Alex “Skye” McCallum


4.) Mindfreak

“Although Mindfreak can go toe-to-toe with the best in this region, they can be inconsistent from time to time. Despite their third place finish in the Pro League and almost taking down Orgless at the Six Masters, their inconsistency and upset losses during the Pro League has earned them a fourth place position.” 

- Konstantin “Cthulhu” Nuridzhanyan


5.) Fury

“It’s obvious to most that this team is extremely inconsistent online. They finished an abysmal seventh place in the Pro League, despite many predicting a lot more from this roster. But thanks to their offline experience in the roster, they are able to show up when it counts, at events. Thanks to beating the teams below them and a second place finish in their Six Masters group, they have earned fifth place.” 

- Rob “Manic” Munday


6.) Sinister

“With the new addition of Nikoh for the Six Masters, they are looking a lot better than what they were. Although that’s not to say that their online performance will improve from last season. Consistency is something this team will need to master to earn themselves a spot in the top five.”

- James “Devmarta” Stewart


7.) ACME

“Despite this core not competing in the last Pro League season, they have been able to consistently put up good results against those above them; whilst almost defeating Mindfreak at the Six Masters. If they keep going the way they’re going now, they could soon be a very strong side.”

- Samuel “MonkeyFist” Royals


8.) CryptiK

“It seemed bright for this roster at first, beating ACME for a spot in the Pro League and then placing well. They did not make the offline stage of Six Masters, however are currently 1st in the LetsPlay Live League. Hopefully we can see them continue this into the remainder of the Pro League season.”

- Alex “Skye” McCallum


9.) Rhythm

“With the better results than most non Pro League teams and being the final team to qualify for the Six Masters at the Melbourne Esports Open, they have earned themselves a spot at ninth. With some development as a team, there is a promising chance that this position could soon rise.”

- Konstantin “Cthulhu” Nuridzhanyan


10.) Sleeper Gaming

“Being an under 18 team and almost beating Fnatic in a match is something they should be proud of. Not to mention that they have some of the strongest results against majority of the non Pro League teams. If they have more time against top level teams, they could be one to watch out for.”

- Rob “Manic” Munday


Honourable Mentions by MonkeyFist


PC419

“Despite not making Pro League, this team hasn’t given up. They were an extremely strong team during the Challenger League and have shown promise by currently sitting at second place overall in the LetsPlayLive League.”


Paradox Gaming

“Showed early promise earlier in the season, but unfortunately narrowly missed out on the Six Masters. Currently sitting fifth overall in the LetsPlayLive standing; behind all those above that are competing.”


With the Pro League starting back up on September 18th, we'll soon see a lot of these teams back in action. Until then, it's back to practise as the post-MEO blues continue.
