CURRENT TEAM RANKINGS

LAST UPDATED: 24 / 03 / 2020

1

FNATIC

“It appears that a fresh roster was exactly the revitalisation that the fallen kings of APAC needed to aspire to their former glory. The addition of MentalistC and Tex replacing RizRaz and Speca after FNATIC's Season X disaster was met with much criticism, but thus far the boys in orange have proven the naysayers wrong. A minor hiccup 6-6 tie to Kanga on playday one has been corrected with seven consecutive FNATIC victories in the ANZ Pro League, earning their place atop the local standings."

- James “Devmarta” Stewart

  • 0:2 vs Empire (SI 2020)
  • 2:1 vs FaZe (SI 2020)
  • 2:0 vs Empire (SI 2020)
  • 7-1 vs Kanga (PL)

Active Roster: Magnet, Tex, MentalistC, Lusty and Virtue

2

Wildcard Gaming

“2019 was a year of uncertainty and excitement for the Wildcard roster, as they finally broke through the barriers of APAC to qualify for two global finals events and sought out an organisation to support them to compete full time. But this golden age could not last forever, and Wildcard have befallen their worst Pro League performance ever seen, sitting in 4th place on the ANZ standings and having lost or tied matches to all of the bottom four teams. Many onlookers question Wildcard's potential for not only their upcoming Six Invitational debut but also their prospects of qualifying for Season XI APAC Finals, which will require an exceptional performance in split two, and the hope that teams such as FNATIC, Onyxian & TBD do not continue their strong Pro League performances for the last leg. One thing is for certain, Wildcard stands on thin ice and will have to remedy their issues to continue their streak of success into 2020.”

- James “Devmarta” Stewart

  • 7-1 vs Kanga (PL)

Active Roster:Ethan, Derpeh, NeophyteR, Diesel and EmoRin

3

Onyxian 2.0

“Onyxian have had an incredible start to Pro League Season 11. The two new young guns Dgtl and Giovanni have had a seamless transition into the team seeing only one game dropped so far in Pro League (and this was played with their coach). It will be exciting to see how Onyxian fare against the likes of Fnatic and Wildcard in the 2nd half of Pro League.”

- Samuel “Monkeyfist” Royals


Recent Results:

  • 7-5 vs SiNister (PL)
  • 7-4 vs SiNister (PL)
  • 7-3 vs Kanga (PL)
  • 7-1 vs Kanga (PL)

Active Roster: Vast, GodLegion, Giovanni, Redd and Dgtl

4

TBD

“To be honest, coming into Season 11 there were doubts about how TBD would perform. That being said, they are currently 3rd in the standings winning at least one map against every opponent they have faced thus far.
Although impressive, it will be interesting to see how they play against Fnatic, Wildcard and Onyxian in the 2nd half of Pro League.”

- Alex “Skye” McCallum


Recent Results:

  • 7-2 vs FURY (PL)
  • 3-7 vs FURY (PL)
  • 1-7 vs Pittsburgh Knights (PL)
  • 7-2 vs Pittsburgh Knights (PL)

Active Roster: Cutieee, JKR, ItBeStyle, Mangoz and Naate

5

Fury

“Fury has had a pretty good beginning for the 1st season that saw them get a single map win off TBD, that were known as Mindfreak before, and a win plus a draw against Wildcard, who are one of the two ANZ representatives that are going to Six Invitational 2020 in Montreal. After all that, Fury so far were not able to find a win against other higher end teams, which does result in their 5th position in our Power Rankings.”

- Konstantin “Cthulhu” Nurdizhanyan


Recent Results: 

  • 2-7 vs TBD (PL)
  • 7-3 vs TBD (PL)
  • 7-5 vs Wildcard (PL)
  • 6-6 vs Wildcard (PL)

Active Roster: Shade, Rock, Warden, Golden and Muesli

6

Pittsburgh Knights

“Pittsburgh Knights had a bit of a rough start considering that the beginning of the season saw them being given all the top end teams that the Knights were not as prepared to play as they probably would've. Nonetheless a draw with Wildcard, win against TDB and Onyxian 2.0 is certainly a good indication that the roster has very good ground to grow on, and I am sure that the fresh PL roster will go places in the future, but for now they land on our 6th place after a close contest with FURY.”

- Konstantin “Cthulhu” Nurdizhanyan

  • 3-7 vs FNATIC (PL)

Active Roster: Hayward, Stryder, Dino, Stigs and Arlo

7

Kanga Esports

“Being one of the teams promoted from CL, Kanga have been improving week in and out. They have impressed many by taking points off both Wildcard and Fnatic with a win and a draw, respectively. Looking forward to what else they can do in the games to come.”

- Samuel “Monkeyfist” Royals

  • 6-6 vs FNATIC (PL)

8

Team SiNister

“The SiNister roster had to make a change to their line up quickly before the season started. They have had some decent performances but have had trouble closing out rounds where they have the advantage and therefore have been struggling to put points up on the board.”

- Samuel “Monkeyfist” Royals


Recent Results:

  • 5-7 vs Onyxian 2.0 (PL) 
  • 4-7 vs Onyxian 2.0 (PL)

Coming Soon

1

Renegades

“It’s no surprise to see Renegades once again at the top of the pack. They haven’t been playing much domestically, but by beating both Order and Avant in the Asia Minor Qualifiers, their form is enough to keep them solidly pegged as the Kings of Oceania. That said, Order and Avant were both able to take a map off Renegades, perhaps boding well for the future of ANZ CS.”

- Jordan “Elfishguy” Mays

Recent Results:

  • 2-1 vs ORDER (ESL Rio Quals)
  • 2-1 vs Avant (ESL Rio Quals)
  • 2-0 vs catman (ESL Rio Quals)
  • 0-2 vs FaZe Clan (IEM Katowice 2020)

Active Roster: dexter, sico, INS, malta and Hatz

2

ORDER

“There has been much discussion over the 2nd spot in ANZ, with both Order and Avant’s name being thrown in the ring. The difficulty, of course, being that both have taken a series off each other on numerous occasions. We think Order has the edge though, by virtue of their qualification to the Rio Minor (ahead of Avant/Chiefs), and their wins in Season 33 of MDL. With ANZ Champs Finals on the horizon, there will be another opportunity to see the developing rivalry between Avant and Order go head to head, and the next edition of these rankings may look very different based on that result.”

- Jordan “Elfishguy” Mays


Recent Results:

  • 3-1 vs Avant (MDL S33)
  • 2-0 vs Avant (MDL S33)
  • 2-0 vs Rooster (MDL S33)
  • 2-0 vs Paradox (MDL S33)

Active Roster: aliStair, Rickeh, USTILO, Valiance and J1rah

3

Avant Gaming

“Finally starting to hit their stride, Avant have managed to get revenge on Order twice recently and taken pole position for ANZ Champs Split 1. Unfortunately they were unable to back it up again in MDL but if they keep growing as a team they may be able to grab that 2nd position in the rankings.”

- Geordie “Mac” McAleer


Recent Results:

  • 1-3 vs ORDER (MDL S33)
  • 2-0 vs Rooster (MDL S33)
  • 0-2 vs ORDER (MDL S33)
  • 2-0 vs Chiefs (MDL S33)

Active Roster: BL1TZ, HaZR, ap0c, ofnu and strerl1ng

4

Chiefs ESC

“A bit inconsistent as usual. The Chiefs managed to knock Avant down a rank a few weeks ago but have since slipped back to 4th after dropping some games to teams they should have dead to rights. Hoping that the boys can continue down the path of improvement again, and start to challenge the top 3 on a regular basis.”

- Geordie “Mac” McAleer

Recent Results:

  • 0-2 vs Ground Zero (ESL AUNZ)
  • 2-0 vs I Sleep (ESL AUNZ)
  • 1-2 vs Paradox (ESL AUNZ)
  • 2-0 vs Rooster (ESL AUNZ)

Active Roster: Jinxx, stat, apocdud, SkulL and Mayker

5

Rooster

“Ok, I’ll admit that initially, I was not convinced by Roosters’ ability to climb through the region’s ranks. But they’ve had an exciting patch of form recently with some thrilling matches including the 78 round marathon against The Chiefs, and a surprise 3rd place finish in ESEA MDL Season 33, so I'm starting to believe. A little more structure, and this hot lineup could find themselves really beginning to shine against some of the region’s classier teams, otherwise we may see them run out of steam and we’ll have another, potential-filled roster begin a fast decline.”

- Matthew “mattyB” Bowerman


Recent Results:

  • 0-2 vs Airborne (ESL AUNZ)
  • 2-0 vs Skyfire (ESL AUNZ)
  • 0-2 vs Chiefs (ESL AUNZ)
  • 0-2 vs Avant (MDL S33)

Active Roster: chelleos, ju1ces, flaw, DannyG and nettik

6

Ground Zero Gaming

“Ground Zero had an exciting start to the new year, with an early qualification to the WESG World Finals, and a decent patch of form heading into the minor. Since then, we’ve seen a slight dip, and a roster I once had primed to sneak its way into the top 4, now finds itself in a slump. And with a 4th place exit at the hands of closely-ranked rivals, Rooster, it's back to the drawing board now for Ground Zero”

- Matthew “mattyB” Bowerman

Recent Results:

  • 2-0 vs Chiefs (ESL AUNZ)
  • 2-0 vs Eimi Fukada FC (ESL AUNZ)
  • 1-2 vs Paradox (ESL AUNZ)
  • 0-2 vs ORDER (ESL AUNZ

Active Roster: bURNRUOk, PEARS, void, Llamas and Noobster

7

Paradox

“Since we last talked about the Paradox boys, they've had some good results. Their MDL Season 33 campaign continued with success outside of clashes with the top 3 teams, and even more impressive is their recent results inside of ESL ANZ Champs. They lost 0-2 to Avant, but have since taken series wins against the likes of Ground Zero and The Chiefs.
However, more concerning for Paradox is their recent roster change, with the removal of 1ukey - they're currently using Teal in his place but we have no info as of the time of writing to indicate whether he's just filling in or will be joining the lineup. With Teal, however, they did manage a 2-0 over Skyfire (albeit with two overtime maps) so in these early stages, he seems a decent fit.”

- Tim "brainstorm" Dunne

Recent Results:

  • 0-2 vs Ground Zero (MDL S33)
  • 0-2 vs ORDER (MDL S33)
  • 16-7 vs Incept (MDL S33)

Active Roster: urbz, ino, ekul, Teal and bedonka

8

I Sleep

“I Sleep (formerly MC Esports) are, I feel, going through a rough time. Their results have been very inconsistent lately, with some strange performances from key players. One moment they’ll be absolutely abysmal, then they’ll bounce back to have a stellar performance. Recent results have shown them coming close to top teams such as Chiefs, going into multiple overtimes on the Chiefs map pick, but then losing their own map pick by a large margin. With very seasoned players on the roster, and very individually talented players, I think I Sleep haven’t found the one key factor that sets them apart from the competition. Their main focus should be on getting some consistency as a team, because until then, they’ll struggle to string many wins together.”

- Dion “Komodo” Pirotta


Recent Results:

  • 1-2 vs Eimi Fukada FC (ESL AUNZ)
  • 0-2 vs Chiefs (ESL AUNZ)
  • 2-1 vs Airborne (ESL AUNZ Quals)
  • 2-0 vs Incept (ESL AUNZ Quals)

Active Roster: Moey, Noisia, tot, ferg and Dirty

9

Airborne E.C.

“Airborne have been struggling to find a collection of wins recently. Their MDL run saw them finish in 11th position with 7 wins and 10 losses, meaning they failed to make the finals. This was a very disappointing result, as they’d had shown a lot of promise last year. They are however, not yet knocked out of the LPL Circuit, and can still make a good run of it despite ending up in the lower bracket. Hopefully Airborne can continue to get more wins under their belt, and show us why they were the team to look out for in 2020.”

- Dion “Komodo” Pirotta


Recent Results:

  • 2-0 vs Roosters (ESL AUNZ)
  • 2-1 vs Paradox (ESL AUNZ) 
  • 1-2 vs 4 and a half men (LPL S4) 

Active Roster: pz, smooth_crim, JD, BRACE and swede

10

Trident Esports

“With Skyfire finding themselves down two players and being ineligible for our rankings, Trident find their way back into the top 10 once again. Trident have just finished an MDL run, winding up in 7th-8th place after BO3 losses to Chiefs and Skyfire in the finals bracket. Their season included BO1 victories over Chiefs back in January and Ground Zero in early February, and saw them finish the group stage with a 10 wins/5 losses record, putting them right behind the likes of Order, Avant, Rooster, and Chiefs. Trident don’t have any other CS coming up, so we’ll have to see how they go once competition resumes. They’ve been able to stay competitive even against the top teams in the region, and I look forward to seeing them continue to improve.”

- Tim "brainstorm" Dunne

  • 0-2 vs Skyfire (MDL S33)
  • 0-2 vs Chiefs (MDL S33)
  • 9-16 vs Roosters (MDL S33)
