ESEA Open Power Rankings S31: Vol. 2 of 7, 5/20/19
Updates every Monday probably.

This week, there were relatively few key matchups so I ended up investigating logs.tf more than usual. Furthermore, since the last release was posted behind schedule, there isn't as much change as expected.
__________

#1 The Medic Academy (6-0)

While I can't confidently crown anyone the definitive #1 contender with so little info, I don't see any reason to move down The Medic Academy since they haven't played another match since last week and no one else has looked dominant enough to raise the question yet.

#2 Late To Mid (5-0)

Basically the same story as above except replace "#1" with "#2".

#3 Cheep Cheep (6-0) [+1]

Unlike the two mentioned above, Cheep Cheep actually did play a notable match (versus Angry Dog Noises). They dropped a couple of rounds, but nonetheless came out on top 5-2, affirming their place near the top of the list.

#4 Perfect Sip (5-1) [+1]

Recent results suggest that this iteration of the John Milter and Mr. Popo combo isn't as strong as last season's The Boomers (which makes sense because they don't have a bunch of invite players this time). Their last match against Soulja Boy eSports came down to overtime where The Perfect Sip came away with a less than perfect 5-4 victory. They did have to substitute a player mid-match, so to be fair, that might have caused some issues. Either way, it's still a solid win considering Soulja Boy eSports is a good team.

#5 OK Kids (6-0) [+3]

After some role swaps, re-orientation, and the addition of Lysol, they've gone from "maybe playoffs" to probably top 8. Their recent 5-0 win over SkyZ Gaming shows that this last season is probably going to be a bit better than OK for them.

#6 Soulja Boy eSports (4-2) [+4]

Soulja Boy eSports is currently halfway through tough stretch of games spanning OK Kids, The Perfect Sip, Holy Ghost Baptism, and The Medic Academy. True, they lost their last two games, but they made both of them close enough to say that they're near the top of the heap.

#7 Rats on Acid (6-0)

No significant change from last week. I don't really have anything to say but it looks weird if I leave this space empty.

#8 Angry Dog Noises (5-1) [+1]

Recent scrim results suggest that the Dogs and Rats are pretty close in skill levels. That said, I gave the Rats a slight
edge based on their greater pool of experience and stronger match schedule so far.

#9 Goys R Us (5-1) [Prev: HR]

The Goys boys have a pretty dead ESEA schedule full of FFWs and predictable results aside from their win over Midfright/Hwasa's Thighs. On the other hand, a look through the log archives shows that they've been performing well behind the scenes. I don't like to look too deeply into scrim results since there are many other factors to consider, but it wouldn't feel right to leave them out of the rankings either.

#10 SkyZ Gaming (5-1) [Prev: HR]

I wasn't sure if I underrated SkyZ Gaming, overrated Operation Starve B4nny, or maybe both, so it's hard to draw a conclusion from SkyZ's recent 5-4 win over Operation Starve B4nny. I think on paper, their upcoming match against Angry Dog Noises should help clear things up as to where SkyZ stands.

#11 Operation Starve B4nny (4-1) [-8]

Just based on the individual strength of their players, Operation St4rve B4nny should probably be higher on the list. In their last match, Screwball dropped nearly 60 kills. Regardless, the game is judged on rounds won and not kills, and they ended up just barely losing to the above mentioned SkyZ gaming 5-4. Perhaps they just need a bit more time to synchronize together?

#12 Free Mr. U (4-2) [-1]

As far as matches go, their schedule probably won't give us any new info any time soon. Their scrim results seem to suggest that keeping them ranked around this place is a good estimate, though.

#13 Yarn Legacy (5-1)

After losing to a bunch of crayon munchers to kickoff the season, they seem to be doing a bit better. Adding Playmo on roamer and moving BBZ to medic seems to be a more fitting use of the team's resources, so the future is looking pretty good for Bobby's boys.

#14 HWASA'S THIGHS, formerly Midfright (4-2) [-8]

KevinIsPwnwbaconI'm not sure how seriously these guys are taking the seasonhttps://i.imgur.com/OlKCtS8.png

#15 Crayons Eaters eSports (5-1) [-3]

While they've mostly continued to perform as expected in their most recent performances, I do think I overranked them slightly based on their win over pre-Playmo addition Yarn Legacy. That said, their next outing against Operation Starve B4nny is a good chance for them to show what they can do and move up.

#16 Holy Ghost Baptism (5-1) [-1]

I'm not really surprised by any of their recent results. I imagine their playoff chances are going to be up in the air throughout the whole season since I think their chances against many playoff bubble teams are coin flips.

Honorable Mentions:

Nav eSports (4-2) [Prev: #14]

I didn't move them down due to any fault of their own; it's just a crowded list. That said, I think everyone from about #15 through #20 are all pretty close, and after everyone's season has come to an end, there are going to be a few very disappointed teams.

Team Frantic, formerly Frantic Gaming (4-2) [Prev: #16]

They aren't really taking the season seriously, but the quality of their players is good enough that they still have a solid chance of taking one of the last playoff spots with the right matchups. Plus, many of them have experience playing with each other in past seasons anyway, so I imagine they don't need as much practice as some other teams to do well.
__________

Compared to how awful my first edition was last season, I think my first part was a lot better this time. Or maybe I just haven't had enough time to be proven wrong. We'll see.

With the upcoming match against Starve B4nny, we're gonna have to move on from Crayola and go to something more premium.

If you want to be the best of the best you're gonna have to commit to the crayon eating life, that means buying in bulk before going to a lan.
