RGL Season 2 Power Rankings (Main), 1 of 6
1/12/2020
__________

I feel like power rankings are less useful now since RGL divisions are smaller compared to how large ESEA-Open was so it's easier to keep track of what other teams in your division are doing. But anyway:

#1 Sorrow's Soldiers
Scouts: 24, DonDorito
Soldiers: Kami, Gritoma
Demo: Nat
Medic: Ghadilli

Ghadilli, Don Dorito, 24, and Nat broke into RGL-Main semi-finals last season with an upset over 5 players + sbeve. This season's roster has a different set of soldiers, but Gritoma and Kami are capable replacements. Considering the skill level of the RGL divisions have been shifted around, this team has a fair chance to take first prize this time.

#2 Sword Art on9 Survivors
Scouts: Dnker, Lewd Rude & Nude
Soldiers: Coo Coo Cachoo/Sushi*, Jayy
Demo: SIN K4RMA
Medic: Squidie

Though now lacking in size due to the recent departure of their 6'10" power forward GeneralNick, picking up Squidie on medic is a substantial upgrade. From what I've seen, everyone on this team is working hard to improve, and they're already better than the majority of main teams and several lower advanced teams. Also keep an eye out for the league debut of pug legend SIN K4RMA.

*Coo Coo Cachoo is starting, but is out for the first few matches of season.

#3 BEAST MODE
Scouts: Tosm, P4rsa
Soldiers: Market, Moist_Master
Demo: Shiba
Medic: Patrick

P4rsa, Tosm, and Market have great DM. I don't believe the majority of these guys have played with each other in previous seasons, but nonetheless, they've done well against the other top teams in the division. Considering they don't have much prior experience together, they have a ton of room to build coordination.

#4 shboom
Scouts: GrapeJuiceIII, Scarfs
Soldiers: Meatball, Caboose
Demo: Azion
Medic: Air

This offclass team was thrown together at more or less the last minute. Turns out, even a few days before the end of registration, there are still plenty of capable, unemployed players. Even though most of the players aren't mainclassing, they still have enough collective gamesense to make it work. Additionally, Scarfs, a former Invite player, has been away for a long-ass time. If he can reclaim some of his former glory, the team could be a title contender.

#5 Rodney and the Stangers
Scouts: Taiga, Abstand
Soldiers: J0dd, Pongallow
Demo: Goosea
Medic: Gus

Last season's RGL-Intermediate champions return mostly intact to take a stab at winning the next division. The synergy they've developed by playing together so long is possibly their biggest strength. Adding Taiga to the line-up has also made a big impact from what I've seen. On the other hand, you could also see their long history together as meaning that they have less room to grow. Either way, they're already a solid contender to make semi-finals.

#6 Whataburger Esports
Scouts: Wonder, Souyant
Soldiers: Vanxi, Nurfu
Demo: Deimos
Medic: Kale

A large portion of this team (Souyant, Vanxi, Nurfu, Kale) comes from the ESEA-Open heritage of Bolt Action and/or Holy Ghost Baptism. They also have Wonder offclassing onto combo scout. While he isn't the most efficient in terms of damage input/output, he's able to make up for it with strong calling abilities. Kale is also new to playing medic so there's plenty of space for individual and team growth.

#7 King Screw
Scouts: Golden125, Owen
Soldiers: Fleskore, Pyxelize
Demo: JaguarFiend
Medic: Betty

A fusion of 50% Ratz Team (14-6 RGL-Intermediate S1), 33% Dragons Are Pretty Cool (13-5 RGL-Main S1), and 17% Pyxelize (not a team). JaguarFiend might literally be the oldest person ever invented but he's a great player and has a lot of experience leading teams. King Screw is probably on the bubble of playoffs right now, but with the right player development and the right first round playoff matchup, they could very possibly make semi-finals.

#8 juggalos of cs:s
Scouts: ???
Soldiers: ???
Demo: ???
Medic: ???
(Between all the offclassing and aliases in scrims, I don't know who is playing what class.)

The juggs are all around good and especially strong in the DM department. If half the team doesn't get snapped again by the RGL admins, they have a good shot at making playoffs.

#9 The First Galactic Empire
Scouts: Reck, Serge Ipaka
Soldiers: Bill, Joey
Demo: EvilDeath
Medic: Tuba God

I haven't seen most of the players on this roster before, but I've heard they're solid. The team won 2nd in UGC Silver last season, so they have some playtime with each other. They haven't done anything to show that they're top contenders, but if everything falls the right way they could sneak into one of the lower playoff spots.

#10 Muddy University
Scouts: Steiner, ???
Soldiers: Prograde, Sunder
Demo: Yohny
Medic: Reigh

The Muddy University begins a new semester, this time with Prograde back on soldier. They're not really in serious contention, but they're competitive enough with most teams that with the right roll of the dice, it's feasible they could make playoffs, especially with RGL's dumbass points system making the close cases fuzzy.

Good luck to everyone this season. Next update: 1/26

P4rsa and zbra spent two and a half seasons together so theyve got that going for them so long as countercalling doesnt kill the team

also zbra doesnt miss so this team might be interesting

griffCAP_CREATUREboxcarwith every ban my team grows stronger...
With how much you shit-talk/slurs you say in scrims I don't see why you aren't banned let alone have admin. I didn't really bookmark logs at the time because it doesnt really matter to me, but I've been called F*G by you at least 3 times in recent memory in pugs (and have seen you shit-talk others in scrims) when I'm playing creature scout and I go behind and kill you because I know you are gonna come up on sniper. I somewhat agree with allot of these rgl bans but you really need to be fair about this.

Aparently it's okay for you to say slurs but not okay for me :)
