ESEA Open S30 Power Rankings, Vol. 6 (Final)
3/18/2019

With The Boomers defeating There We go 5-2, the regular season has officially come to a close. For this final edition, I thought it would be a good time to make a complete wrap-up of the season by ranking every surviving team (any team not marked "Dead" on the roster page).

Why? Firstly because I'm a dumb nerd who can't get any sleep. Secondly, there was a lot of time between the previous update and the last match of the season. So yeah, enough rambling. Here's my nerd essay.

Key:
___ = Made playoffs
<S: #> = Playoff seed
[+/-] = Change in rank since previous edition (if ranked previously and rank changed)
# = Power ranking
(N-N) = Record

#1 Simian Aggression (16-0), <S: 1>

I've given this team a lot of praise, and deservedly so considering they've wrapped up a perfect regular season.
Still, they aren't taking their remaining opponents lightly; I've heard several players on this team give credit where it's
due to the other top contenders. Overall, I'm still favoring the 16-0 apes to win playoffs, but it's not going to be an easy fight either to take home that glorious 250 dollars. Congratulations on not losing guys.

#2 The Boomers (15-1), <S: 2>

Snore started the season as (arguably) the more stacked team, but steady reinforcements of veterans has grown The Boomers past them slightly. Still, I'm sure a rematch will be close again (The Boomers won the previous meeting 5-3). The Boomers predictably boomed most teams or just made them say fuck it and forfeit and have made their way through the season with only a single blemish on their record.

#3 Enoch eSports (14-2), <S: 3>

As a team full of Face It lords with little experience on their ESEA pages, the only people I heard hyping them up pre-season were people who had actually scrimmed them and saw that they were really, really good. I underrated them at first, but they gradually proved to all that they deserve their status as contenders. They lost to The Boomers and Simian Aggression, but gave both teams a hard fight.

#4 Snore (13-3), <S: 4>

The last of the apparent open title contenders. Even while not taking the season too seriously, they've managed to give the other top teams a lot of trouble. You could argue these guys as high as #2, especially considering they might get more serious now that playoffs have arrived. They aren't my top pick to win the division, but I wouldn't be shocked if they did either.

#5 SliceRogue is Banned (13-3), <S: 5> [+3]

After a failure to launch at the start with 2 forfeits losses and a 5v6 loss, this team turned it around and won out. Aside from that, I know dickall about them since I don't know these aliases, although some people have said that they should be higher possibly? Maybe they'll make semi-finals? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows.

#6 There We Go (12-4), <S: 6>

TWG cruised through the season under the radar since most of their early wins were against low tier teams. Their first real challenge against MyAnimeList Academy ended up a disappointment since they couldn't field 6. Finally, as the strength of their competition increased in the latter half of the season, they made their case for a spot in the upper bracket of playoffs with quality wins over Home Run Thomas, Carrier Penguins, Toaster in the Bath, Lion Coalition, and Longerboys.

#7 Moshi Moshi Vac Ban Desu (11-5), <S: 10> [-2]

In the first half of the season, the MikeMat friend team was just almost good enough to be a top team, but a few tough games left them at a sub-.500 record. Then just in time, Ebsikl rode in and gave them the last little push needed to turn the tides of some close games. I'm not saying Ebsikl carried them, but I think he was what they needed to bump them into the next tier. In the end, they managed to win-out after his arrival and turned a 4-5 season into an 11-5 season. Still, the less than dominant performance in their final match versus Carrier Penguins hurt their stock some.

#8 My AnimeList Academy (11-5), <S: 7> [-1]

Like Moshi Moshi VAC Ban Desu, this team had a rough start and a strong finish. Speaking of which, it looks like they'll be re-matching Moshi Moshi VAC Ban Desu in the first round of playoffs, so one of these teams is making an early exit. Their first match was close, but this time they'll be without Ekh0, so that could mix things up (for better or worse).

Edit/Correction: They're dead.

#9 Longerboys (11-5), <S: 9>

Gjohnce feat. Gjohnce morphed into the Longerboys mid-season. They had few easy games following their elongation, but ultimately managed to go 5-1, with that one loss only 3-2. The 8th/9th seed is a hot seat; they'll be in for another grind against Toaster in the Bath in the first playoff round.

#10 Good Damage 2 (10-6), <S: 12> [+4]

Every week, I think I've either underrated or overrated this team. To be fair to me, a number of roster changes and substitutions made them hard to judge. Finally, I think I've found out where to put them. Similar to Lion Coalition, they had to go up against a number of good teams early in the season which set them back, but nonetheless, Good Damage 2 was able to win out their last 4, making their 6-6 into 10-6 and securing a playoff spot.

#11 Lion Coalition (10-6), <S: 11> [+2]

ESEA veteran and lacrosse hero Bill returned for his 13th season, making playoffs for the 5th time. The beginning of the season looked rocky with a losing record, but they managed to keep with it and climbed back into the top 16 just in time.

#12 Team Win Steel (10-6), <S: 14> [-2]

I thought of them as an underdog to make playoffs after their first few, but an 8 game hot streak including upsets
over MyAnimeList Academy (then the Burnsiders) and Toaster in the Bath put them on the map. Their playoff dream nearly went to waste, but a 4-3 comeback over 5Head finally put them over the line to make it in.

#13 Toaster in the Bath (11-5), <S: 8> [-1]

From early in the season, it seemed this team had a lot potential with the players they were able to assemble. Since they formed pretty close to the start of the season, they didn't ball out initially, but after the mid-point, it looked like things really started to come together.

#14 5Head (10-6), <S: 13> [-3]

In spite of some slip-ups getting that 10th win, they caught it with a 5-1 over Carrier Penguins, securing their playoff spot. I thought they would end the season with a few more wins, but 10 is still a solid finish.

#15 Carrier Penguins (9-7)

The Penguins floated through the season on the playoff bubble and just barely missed it. In a final ditch effort to get the last win they needed, they came close to upsetting Moshi Moshi VAC Ban Desu with a 3-1 lead at half time, but like in their match against Plumpwench, couldn't hold onto it. I guess Sunshine is a cursed map for them.

#16 Enjoy Freezing (8-8) [+1]

This team was all over the place in terms of match results. They lost their first match to General Nick, then won 7 in a row including a win over Good Damage 2. After losing a few more, they nearly knocked off 5Head in overtime, but immediately after get knocked out of contention themselves by Hugs and Kisses. They then finished their last three with close matches against Home Run Thomas, Toaster in the Bath, and Snore. With a softer schedule, they probably would've made playoffs, but that's just how it goes sometimes.

#17 The N-Word Free Zone (8-8)

There are a few low seed playoff teams I would favor them against, but with their last two games scheduled against Snore and The Boomers, their fate was sealed as soon as they lost to the Carrier Penguins. As an aside, congratulations for managing to play every game with the same six people. That in itself is an accomplishment for an open team.

#18 Home Run Thomas (8-8) [-2]

The Home Run Thomas boys were incredibly close to making it into the last playoff slot, but close only counts for Soldiers and Demomen. They started off hitting big with a 7-1 start, but weren't able to keep it up in the later innings.

#19 Hugs and Kisses (7-9)

With half a squad of returning players and some great additions replacing the departed, it looked like a strong season was in store for Hugs and Kisses. Unfortunately, a tough schedule dragged down their record and a few winnable games slipped away such as their close 4-3 match vs. Nav eSports (featuring former teammate Tosm). Toward the end of the season, it looked like they were on the right track with an upset over Enjoy Freezing and a close
fight with the Longerboys, but there weren't enough games left to get back in the race.

#20 Eternal Phoenix Cult (9-7), <S: 16>

This team slipped into playoffs under the radar. They ended up with enough rounds for their 9 wins to get them in
over the Carrier Penguins. While arguably there were some other teams that "deserved" this spot more, I'm happy to
see them get in after fighting for the spot down to the wire in their last two games, both 5-4 wins.

#21 Nav eSports (7-8)

I kind of thought of these guys as my baseline for an average open team. They beat off most of the low open teams with ease and had some really tight ones with mid open teams, but were blown out by the upper tier. I do think it's a little unfortunate they didn't get a chance at a final game because 8-8 feels a lot better than 7-8 (odd team out, no 16th game).

#22 Plumpwench (now Club KO) (6-10)

Plumpwench was cursed with a brutal schedule, and they were probably a bit better than their record suggests. Still, they managed to put up a fight and even managed to upset the Carrier Penguins. I expected them to do a little more after opening the season with a close game vs. the Burnsiders (now MyAnimeList Academy), but overall, not too bad of a season considering they were able to take home a few solid wins.

#23 General Nick (6-10)

These guys got the worst of the evil ESEA computer's matchmaking. With a promising 5-3 win over
Enjoy Freezing and a 4-0 start, they were stricken down for daring to win. 9/10 of their losses were to teams I ranked in my top 16 at some point, so at the least, they lead the division in quality losses. If they had been given a more average
schedule, I think they would've at least been 8-8.

#24 Retards of the Carribean (10-6), <S: 15>

By far the most successful Newbie Mix Drive team of the season. Sure, they got into playoffs with the blessing of a shallow schedule and a lot of FFWs (they have a negative RF-RA), but for team of mostly brand new players, it's still impressive to go 10-6 and improve so much regardless of the circumstances. They worked especially hard for those last two wins, winning both games 4-3.

#25 Old Fools Big Tools (8-8)

The Old Fools got crossed up in some weird 3 way bubble playoff race. If they had beaten both the Retards of the Carribean and Eternal Phoenix Cult, they would have been the ones sneaking into the playoffs. They ultimately lost both matches by 1 round which allowed both the Retards and Eternal Phoenix Cult to make the last couple of playoff spots while the Old Fools were left hanging at 8-8.

#26 Pretty Boys (6-10)

I don't really know much to say about this team. Turns out writing about 43 teams gets repetitive somewhere around the 22 mark.

#27 NKCCS (8-8)

I'm running out of things to write but I'm almost finished so I might as well put something here. Something.

#28 The Underducklings (8-8)

Although this team did not have any major wins, they were at least good enough to beat some of the lower end teams decisively and even took a couple of rounds from some upper open teams. There are also lot of nice, patient people on this team. If rankings were based on niceness, they'd definitely be in the upper playoff bracket.

#29 DEADBEEF (6-10)

After two .500 seasons in a row, 3735928559 was not able to make it to 8-8 again. They did have some fun games though with two of them coming down to one round.

#30 Rex and his Raptors (6-10)

Not the best but not the worst Newbie Mix Drive team this season (lost to Retards, beat Warriors). This time, Grape Juice's students managed to collect 3 non-FFWs which isn't bad considering they changed up roles just about every week.

#31 Envision Crew (3-13)

As the longest running team in open, Sidular returned for his 8th consecutive season under the same roster page. Throughout his history there have been some up ticks (10-6) and down ticks, and unfortunately, this one was a down tick. But who knows. The Sidular crew went 1-15 before having a 10-6 season, so maybe next time will be better.

#32 Wireless Warriors (5-11)

Finally, the oft defeated Newbie Mix Team #3 feat. P4rsa. They nearly got a win on Propaganda, but fell apart near the end. Still, at least they managed to make it to the end of the season. Last place is better than dead (maybe).

Dead Teams:

Hostile Hamster Datenight (8-8)

The artists formerly known as White Genocide started the season 8-1 but said fuck it and peaced out to play Apex Legends (according to their guestbook comments). They were almost revived in time to face Home
Run Thomas, but were re-deaded by Discord's homework.

Keyboard Lords (6-10)

The Lords had a chance at finishing in the middle, or even as someone taking the 16th seed, but they disbanded in their final 5. General Nick, Hugs and Kisses, and Retards of the Carribean were all beatable opponents who could've got them in at 9-7 depending on number of rounds won.

Dab on UGC (5-11)

They died, but they do have the distinct honor (?) of being, as far as I know, the only team to win a game 1-0 this season.

Cozy Gang (4-12)

The Gay Communist Gun Club AKA Cozy Gang AKA Team Boxcar wasn't amazing, but wasn't bad either. They were on track for an average middle open season, but died.

Summertime (2-14)

They died at the mid point of the season, but Summertime wasn't all that bad for a team with a 2-14 record. They nearly upset Toaster in the Bath and beat an alright Nav eSports team.

Jeffinators (1-9)

In spite of having 29 people on their roster, Jeffinators didn't make it long. Of course, most of those players never had any intention of playing, and the fact that they posted their join password on their guestbook might have inflated the numbers.

homoheroes (1-9)

This team was just a bunch of Counter Strike players who seemed to register just for the hell of it. I assumed they'd
play one match and quit but they actually played two. I think they intended to just play one, but the leader of their
second match opponent kindly asked them to play and they actually did surprisingly.

Ok Kids (1-9), Cumber Crew (0-10), Drush and the Jets (0-8), The Creatures (0-7)

These teams died at the start of the season so there isn't much to say. That's the end of the list. Kind of anti-climactic. Maybe I should've sorted this from bottom to top.

Anyway, that concludes my ESEA Open S30 Power Rankings that no one asked for. Good luck to everyone who made playoffs or plans to play S31. Finally, thanks for reading, giving feedback, and helping me improve the series throughout the course of the season.

Run Thomas, but were re-deaded by Discord's homework.

[b]Keyboard Lords (6-10)
[/b]
The Lords had a chance at finishing in the middle, or even as someone taking the 16th seed, but they disbanded in their final 5. General Nick, Hugs and Kisses, and Retards of the Carribean were all beatable opponents who could've got them in at 9-7 depending on number of rounds won.

[b]Dab on UGC (5-11)
[/b]
They died, but they do have the distinct honor (?) of being, as far as I know, the only team to win a game 1-0 this season.

[b]Cozy Gang (4-12)
[/b]
The Gay Communist Gun Club AKA Cozy Gang AKA Team Boxcar wasn't amazing, but wasn't bad either. They were on track for an average middle open season, but died.

[b]Summertime (2-14)
[/b]
They died at the mid point of the season, but Summertime wasn't all that bad for a team with a 2-14 record. They nearly upset Toaster in the Bath and beat an alright Nav eSports team.

[b]Jeffinators (1-9)
[/b]
In spite of having 29 people on their roster, Jeffinators didn't make it long. Of course, most of those players never had any intention of playing, and the fact that they posted their join password on their guestbook might have inflated the numbers.

[b]homoheroes (1-9)
[/b]
This team was just a bunch of Counter Strike players who seemed to register just for the hell of it. I assumed they'd
play one match and quit but they actually played two. I think they intended to just play one, but the leader of their
second match opponent kindly asked them to play and they actually did surprisingly.

[b]Ok Kids (1-9), Cumber Crew (0-10), Drush and the Jets (0-8), The Creatures (0-7)
[/b]
These teams died at the start of the season so there isn't much to say. That's the end of the list. Kind of anti-climactic. Maybe I should've sorted this from bottom to top.

Anyway, that concludes my ESEA Open S30 Power Rankings that no one asked for. Good luck to everyone who made playoffs or plans to play S31. Finally, thanks for reading, giving feedback, and helping me improve the series throughout the course of the season.

That was a close match, and I can now say I've ever won a playoffs game.

Gloperz would be the last person to cut his way to the top. You're doing some crazy mental gymnastics.
