CURRENT TEAM RANKINGS

LAST UPDATED: 14 / 02 / 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

  • 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.”

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

Mindfreak

“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

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)

Coming Soon

1

Renegades

“The boys have certainly hit the ground running in 2020. They can clearly be seen as the top of AU right now with an immaculate performance throughout the Katowice quals, only dropping a single map to Team ‘team’ in the grand finals. Of course it needs to be mentioned that their first international campaign of the year was a great success as well, making the grand final against BIG, and individually Dexter was drawing a few eyes around the world as well. I can't wait to see what they're able to do as Hatz develops more chemistry alongside the team.”

- Geordie “Mac” McAleer

Key Achievements:

  • 2-1 vs Mad Lions (DreamHack Leipzig)
  • 2-0 vs Cloud9 (DreamHack Leipzig)
  • 3-1 vs Team team (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 2-0 vs ORDER (IEM Katowice Quals)

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

2

ORDER

“Left in a rough place after losing Hatz to Renegades, ORDER are still looking for their permanent 5th while trialling/filling the spot with Rickeh for the time being. They placed 3rd in the Katowice qualifiers after Team ‘team’ had another great performance but haven't lost in their MDL campaign just yet and are hunting for the Global Challenge yet again. I'm interested to see what happens with the team and who will round out the roster that was starting to show a lot of promise at the end of 2019.”

- Geordie “Mac” McAleer


Key Achievements:

  • 16-10 vs Airborne (MDL S33)
  • 16-11 vs Paradox (MDL S33)
  • 2-0 vs AVANT (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 2-0 vs Team team(IEM Katowice Quals)

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

3

team

“Despite disappointing results overseas at the NVIDIA Geforce Cup, Team have continued their solid domestic run and continue to push the issue against the top teams within Australia and New Zealand. Their performance in the IEM Katowice Closed Qualifier where they beat Order in 2 Bo3’s, Avant in one and took a map off Renegades bodes well for Team. Team’s form is looking good at the moment but they will need similar results either on LAN or internationally to leapfrog either of the top two.”

- Jordan “Elfishguy” Mays

Key Achievements:

  • 2-1 vs ORDER (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 2-1 vs AVANT (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 2-1 vs Paradox (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 2-0 vs PC419 (IEM Katowice Quals)

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

4

Avant Gaming

“Avant continues to be a team that is ‘almost’ there. Things were looking good before their roster changes, but the additions of Ofnu and Blitz are yet to yield results that match those of the previous roster. Avant maintain their rank at 4th based on the strength of the roster on paper, and their reasonable performance in the IEM Katowice Qualifiers, but they will need to ensure the new roster meshes well as there are a few teams hot on their heels.”

- Jordan “Elfishguy” Mays


Key Achievements:

  • 2-1 vs Airborne (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 2-0 vs PC419 (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 2-0 vs Ground Zero (EPL S10)
  • 2-0 vs catman (EPL S10)

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

5

Paradox

“After some up and down form at the back end of 2019, paradox have started 2020 with a bang, making an extremely deep run through the IEM Katowice quals, and exceptional performances vs some of the region's best. A dip in form in the early rounds of MDL do put a few question marks on if they can find themselves as true contenders for 2020.”

- Matthew “mattyB” Bowerman

Key Achievements:

  • 16-8 vs Trident (MDL S33)
  • 2-1 vs Ground Zero (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 2-0 vs unfortunate circumstances (IEM Katowice Quals)

Active Roster: urbz, ino, ekul, 1ukey, bedonka

6

Airborne E.C.

“A rising contender at the back end of 2019, Airborne now find themselves with a new 5 in chubster, and a new chance at success. A decent showing in the IEM Katowice quals, with a series you could argue they let slip vs Avant, shows they still have that potential, before a couple of lackluster performances to start the new MDL season. Only time will tell if chubster is the solution to Airbornes aspirations of success.”

- Dion “Komodo” Pirotta


Key Achievements:

  • 2-0 vs Ground Zero (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 2-1 vs PC419 (IEM Katowice Quals)
  • 3-1 vs Team team(LPL)

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

7

madlikewizards

“MLW started 2020 with some fresh faces and a decent run of form. You could argue the only real contender they have faced to start off MDL is Paradox, they have still been extremely convincing on the scoreboard. This could be the season we finally see Chelleos breakthrough, and he will be the key to MLWs success throughout 2020.”

- Matthew “mattyB” Bowerman


Key Achievements:

  • 2-1 vs Ground Zero (GeForce Cup)
  • 2-0 vs VITAL (GeForce Cup)
  • 1-0 vs Bizzard (MDL S32)

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

8

MC Esports

“With the new season of MDL in play, MC have started off nicely against Incept, which is a good start considering they have brought in the experience of ferg to the roster. It will be very interesting to see how MC will fare against the other teams in the MDL league.”

- Dion “Komodo” Pirotta


Key Achievements:

  • 16-13 vs Formidable (MDL S33)
  • 16-7 vs Incept (MDL S33)
  • 2-0 vs PC419 (NVIDIA GeForce Cup)

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

9

Skyfire

“The Skyfire team are an interesting little mix of players. We have seen Mizzy before with his short run in the old Paradox lineup with Keeyto, Llamas, Noobster, Chub, but for the eyes of the rest of the scene, the names of these boys may not be known. I've seen most of these guys play at local events like LANSlide, and if they can replicate their LAN performances in their online matches then I feel these guys can consistently be in our Top 10 Rankings.”

- Dion “Komodo” Pirotta


Key Achievements:

  • 16-4 vs ROCK CANDY (MDL S33)
  • 16-11 vs Trident (MDL S33)
  • 16-5 vs Formidable (MDL S33)

Active Roster: affiNity, LikiAU, lato, Mizzy and Gumpton

10

Trident Esports

“I don't know where to put my finger for Trident to be honest. Very sharp players, who were able to get the better of Team 'team' in a best of 1 in MDL S33. It should be noted that they also lost to lower ranked teams than Team 'team'.

Although, I feel that Trident are a team that are yet to fully showcase what they are capable of, if they start to gain a little more consistency in their games I feel their confidence will propel them to greater things.”

- Dion “Komodo” Pirotta

Key Achievements:

  • 16-11 vs Team team (MDL S33)
  • 16-9 vs PC419 (MDL S33)
  • 2-1 vs Corvidae (MDL S32 Relegations)

Active Roster: JP, MDK, nope, QuasarGT and Versa
