ESEA S30 Power Rankings
Mid-Season Update

#1 Team NOW (power rankings never lie, e-dating)
You won’t believe how well this team played based off of the early power rankings. This team has simply TRANSCENDED expectations and have been OUTPERFORMING them.

#2 Redemption Arc (Ft. Air, the irredeemable)
In my first power rankings I wrote “Yoona will empower the team with his helpful, and friendly criticism for the team”. Now that Yoona is gone, Air will give this team even more helpful and friendly criticism TRANSFORMING this team into a powerhouse which can not be stopped. Maybe Scratchh will develop into an upfrag FARMER under Air’s benevolent guidance.

#3 Another Day At The Office (Metalworks scout, 74 kills)
This team SHOCKED the entirety of ESEA’s TF2 Intermediate gaming division by beating the formerly number 1 seeded team. Aquilla has MORPHED into a MONSTER on the battlefield, though, their roamer Susihaha Ejishaha is a COMPLETE and utter dollar tree shit filled trash bag. If there was someone to REPLACE this man it would be the powerpoint maker himself.

#4 Doubleplus good (Spent Valentine’s on Propaganda powerpoint)
Unfortunately, Prograde has simply not been living up to his INCREDIBLE expectations. The powerpoints have not been up to par with IM, and the transition has been very tough. REGARDLESS not very many have been able to TRIUMPH over his ELITE snakewater powerpoint strategies.

#5 Theory of Knowledge (Stock, full time shield)
A chill group of gamers SMASH perfection, roblox boy, invite sandbagger, and weebs in a match on gullywash.

#6 Ojama Country (malfunctioning cheat client, leaving mid scrim)
Perfection FAILED to calculate the right angles at which his shots should go with his cheat client pure skill. Lizar is the PINNACLE of skill putting his e-dating mongoloids on his back, carrying them into playoffs.

#7 Space Bugs (Weed, fortnite)
Goldfish has SUCCESSFULLY smoked enough weed to ROCKET his team to IM playoffs. Little does ANYONE know, Goldfish, after winning out of playoffs, will go to conquer the Democratic Republic of the Congo, what a true hero.

#8 Goblin Zone (Roamer always behind, Last one to die on mids)
This team has proven that they can do well despite primarily speaking Minionese the entire season. They will truly be the KRYPTONITE to B4nny’s innate weakness to the walking 2 inch chodes; Hedgehog Hero, leading the VALIANT charge in a attempt to take down the TYRANNICAL leaders of invite. Oh, they’ll edge into playoffs too.

#9 Bumbology (Refuge for the washed)
Which of the 19 homeless shelter (invite) refugees will show up to their next match? Also, chill good dm.

#10 Portland Blacksiders (Collapse of the Union, failure of communism Circa 1989)
This team has fallen a DRASTIC 5 spots since the pre-season update, and there may be some hints to why. Screwb’s omnipotent system has DESTROYED the foundation of his team. While in hindsight it may have seemed like a good idea. Apparently little motivation to improve and innovate leads to FAILURE in one’s country team.

#11 Dunk Masters (Makkabeus berating his team, Legit 180 ping)
You won’t BELIEVE how Makkabeus has MUTATED his team of primates to be able to FINAGLE around his MASSIVE brain. This team has TRULY shown their skills in MANHANDLING the other team by using their sweat to OSMOTICALLY diffuse water out of the enemies brain’s, a never-before seen strategy for intellectuals.

#12 BD Energy (JaguarBRAIN, ESEA retirement home)
This team has been on the hotplate many times, and doesn’t have much to show for it. With the COMBINED gaming experience of over 100 YEARS you’d think they wouldn’t choke against a cheater pure skill player.

#13 RHDP (Mu, their only player)
Mu has successfully 1V6ED the ENTIRETY of IM, this is a fantastic achievement only surpassed by the other 12 teams above them.

#14 i miss my fly
I know a team
That swallowed a fly
But I don't know why
They swallowed the fly
- I guess they’ll die

Ipaka -2019

#15 Pancake-Waffle Rifle (Autobots, roll out)
Tomtron reprograms his scout mains into the ULTIMATE TRANSFORMERS. He also picks up a couple demo mains to fill in the rest of the gaps.

#16 Excellent Adventures (Dippidy smells,The fridge is bad, MustardOverLord)
This team has moved up one spot, what an accomplishment.

#17 Faint Gaming (Ew, Sandbaggers)
America’s next top invite sandbag team.

I know the Faint sandbag train is very tempting to jump on but realize the only reason this team is even a thing is because Exile was told he'd be getting an invite spot and then got moved to IM days before the season began. Then that team groaned on for weeks hating playing together until they died. This current team is only a thing because it was my final attempt to show my wrath to the tf2 gods on behalf of Faint.

We were content to sponsor a non-playoff invite team. We were bummed but, okay with being moved to IM. This was a real last ditch effort so, I really would stray away from the idea of us sandbagging simply because I picked up good players that were only available because of their teams having died.

Right, Velocity was dead. Ether and kryptonite were both on that roster paid up. Rio had his invite fees paid up too. There was no reason to not use the veL roster when it became clear it had died, yet you still stacked the IM roster.

could you not have resurrected the vel roster in invite and re-branded it to faint? or are there limitations as to how many people can join/leave?

doesn't invite only allow 5 player additions on a team so you can't roster trade and is why the whole situation with how FROYO Black and cafe black occurred?

adding onto the whole only allowing 5 player additions per roster, pretty sure veL had added ether to their roster so it would be only 4 people being able to be added to the roster.

ScreamScrewb’s omnipotent system has DESTROYED the foundation of his team.

This is an issue we are actively trying to correct. I have moved myself to flank scout and am no longer main calling in hopes that the rest of the team can stand on their own and learn. I think i'm done playing combo for a while. I have mega pocket soldier syndrome i need to correct before i try it again.

emo whole situation with how FROYO Black and cafe black occurred?

Nah, botmode wanted to get shade and bdonski to replace zilly and delpo, but shade wanted to use marmaloo over botmode. So the cucked botmode and used marmaloo

Only 3 roster transactions per week though

I think rebranding as faint would have technically been possible but it's also unclear if krypt (or any of them for that matter) would actually play still or not cause there's a difference between being down to play IM and being down to play invite when you're 0-4 and your goal in the first place was playoffs

Anyway, the way I see it there's a lot of up and coming talent in IM this season and compared to sandbag teams in the past the new faint is definitely not that strong in comparison. I would be really surprised if the top 4 IM teams can't handle faint cause you guys are all pretty good. Like faust you should definitely not be critical of them for sandbagging considering everyone on your team except phone (IM champion) and meatball have played invite

this, and also wanna add that we first thought of taking the velocity roster but the roster transactions left on the team weren't enough for the people we wanted to get on it (no one on velocity besides ether wanted to keep playing since they weren't making playoffs)
