RGL Main Season 3 Power Rankings
6/21/2020

I researched/wrote this in like 6 hours this morning. It isn't as detailed or well-edited as previous versions since I don't have much time to make these anymore. Rosters are assumed based on the last match logs I could find. Hopefully, it at least gives a decent enough overview of the playoff race.
_____
#1 Scooby Snacks (7-0)
Scouts: KutchKutch, Pomeranian
Soldiers: Artist, Dog
Demo: Mousecake
Medic: Rasta Ronaldo

At the halftime of the season, Scooby Snacks survives the RGL Main battle royale as the last undefeated team in the division, for now at least. Yet unlike the champions in previous seasons of RGL Main, they don't look untouchable. Three of their games have been competitively contested 5-3 wins. Perhaps come playoffs, the dice could fall a different way? Nonetheless, overall, they're the clear favorites right now.

#2 Hairline Treatment Center (7-1)
Scouts: Inky, Kore4n
Soldiers: Asi4n, Flatline
Demo: Alfredodan
Medic: Th3o

On Villa, Hairline Treatment Center lost their challenge to Scooby Snacks's throne at the top of the division. However, they put up a solid fight, taking three rounds. Aside from that loss, they've consistently managed to defend their perch from every other challenger, albeit not by much in many cases.

#3 WORX WG547 20V (2.0Ah) (6-2)
Scouts: Woodchip, Souyant
Soldiers: Nurfu, Josh
Demo: Deimos
Medic: Weeb_Whacker

Similar to other teams in the top 8 (excluding the top seed), they've had their fair share of hard fought matches, showing that there's a lot of parity in Main this season. This week on Snakewater, they suffered a close, disappointing loss to Hairline Treament Center. Later in the week, they rebounded with a well earned 5-4 victory over Space Cadets.

#4 Pootis Von Epic (6-2)
Scouts: Myc, Zyehac
Soldiers: Jude$, Space Cadet
Demo: Improper
Medic: Skip

After a dull start to the season with all their games rolling one way or the other, the heat's been cranked up these last three matches with each of them being decided by one round (2-1 over this period). They very narrowly get the nod over Straight Outta ReSurfed due to the head to head victory.

#5 Straight Outta ReSurfed (6-2)
Scouts: Dream Forever, Witness
Soldiers: R4bbit, Setsuna
Demo: Micahlele
Medic: Li

They aren't crushing games, yet more often than not, they're the team with their name in green when it comes down to it in close games. Their first three weeks were pretty sweaty, but this week on Snakewater they got a nice break from it with a couple of clean 5-0 wins over weaker competition.

#6 Rodney and the Stangers (5-2)
Scouts: J0dd, Taiga
Soldiers: Pongalow, Carter
Demo: Abstand
Medic: ZoomZxe

The J0dd Squad returns for a fifth consecutive season with an interesting lineup shuffle putting J0dd on scout and Abstand on demoman. With Clearcut coming up, their previous seasons together might give them an edge on other teams who haven't had as much time to practice the map together. As long as their loss to Naknak is an abberation and not the norm, they should be on track to make playoffs comfortably.

#7 Frantic (6-2)
Scouts: Sheep, Graham
Soldiers: Nehcro, MarShan
Demo: Zaboomafoo
Medic: Cerby

[Team] Frantic [Gaming], last seen in ESEA Season 31, has risen from the grave for a fourth season and is off to a strong start. Nehcro, Sheep, Graham, Sharkitect, and Zaboomafoo have all been part of previous iterations of the roster. They've secured a close upset win over Pootis Von Epic, but they'll need another quality win to really show they're a contender to make semi-finals.

#8 blu (5-3)
Scouts: Scott, Nugs
Soldiers: Lenn, Elijahhh
Demo: Juffelo
Medic: Egyptian Shumba

Blu is flying under the radar with only a 5-3 record. Looking at each loss though, they haven't lost to any bad teams. In fact, they're leading in quality losses with two 5-3 defeats to the top two teams. They've still got a lot to prove, and they're headed in the right direction now that they've picked up a win over Space Cadets.

#9 Space Cadets (5-3)
Scouts: [Not Space] Cadet, Owen
Soldiers: Pont, Golden
Demo: Jaguar
Medic: Craig

The remix/rebrand of Jaguar and the Ratz Team and Others has had a heartbreaking week. In an alternate universe, they could be near the top of the division with a 7-1 record. In this reality though, they're 5-3 after losing both Snakewater games 5-4. Still, their full resume shows they're contenders to make second round of playoffs if they can close out games better in the future.

#10 has anyone seen naknak? (4-3)
Scouts: Lehcs, Tacos
Soldiers: Bliztank, Tele
Demo: Avian
Medic: Moose In A Suit

A half-n-half record at the half way point of the season isn't the ideal spot to be in. It's also far from the worst spot to be in. They've shown promise with an upset over the Stangers and a good effort against Hairline Treatment Center where they claimed three rounds. It's hard to tell where these guys will wind up at the end. I wouldn't count them out of upper bracket playoffs yet.

#11 onlyfans.com/SpadesSlick (5-3)
Scouts: SpadesSlick, Dot
Soldiers: Gritoma, Highlander
Demo: Michael Matthew
Medic: Starka

They're off to a decent start at 5-3 and 9th place in the standings, but they haven't beaten any strong competition yet, and so far, the Only Fans page is lacking in content, limiting their funding.

#12 Family Friendly Content (5-2)
Scouts: Kots, Claps
Soldiers: Aimer, Sir Pineapple
Demo: Mojo
Medic: Rahmed

Things didn't look great following a loss to last season's IM champions, Pastel Mirage, who haven't been too hot so far. Since then, it seems they've cleaned up their act with only two rounds lost. Tonight, they'll face a tough opponent in a late Snakewater showdown with the Stangers.

#13 2wycked esports (4-4)
Scouts: Smashy, Displace
Soldiers: Sobigallmyt***arebigt***, Willy
Demo: vonflare smokin kush on i94
Medic: Tojo

Even with the immense power of Tojo limited to the Medical Man, his high level of experience should be able to aid his team's development over these last few weeks. At 4-4, there's still time to climb back up. Although, I'm not sure how seriously he's taking it as the last log I saw with him on medic he dropped 5 times in 30 minutes and his alias was [420]ExcessiveTOKER5 so he might be playing the season permanently high as fuck (disclaimer: just speculating, I don't know if this is what's actually happening).

#14 Creative Gaming Association (4-4)
Scouts: Spirit, Notso
Soldiers: Liammm, Coolin
Demo: Meemo
Medic: Reno

Right now, probably the baseline average team for Main. I'm not creative enough to think of any banter or interesting comments to say about this team. Chances are they'll ride the playoff bubble for most of the season and make a final playoff push in the last week.

#15 nap time (4-4)
Scouts: Q, [Redacted]
Soldiers: Arryu, Zotoh
Demo: Dennisvich
Medic: DiscoTribble

Their glorious leader Boxcar departed, so Arryu has taken the reigns and reformed the roster stronger than ever. Previously, they were near the bottom of the division. After a brief visit from ScrewB on demoman and adding Q, they've got the tools they need to get back into playoff contention.

#16 yeremy (4-4)
Scouts: Snark, Sjn
Soldiers: Saint, Scizor
Demo: ATT
Medic: OneUpper

Yeremy (the team) has some interesting restrictions: Between Yeremy, Scizor, and ATT-, only two players may play at once. Yeremy, Scizor, and ATT are obviously some of the highest level players in the division on their main classes. If they can be a fraction as good at the classes they're unbanned from, they can easily rise up the standings in what's left of the season.
_____
Like I said at the start, even though there's a clear favorite, there's still plenty of time left before playoffs and no one seems invincible yet. For the first time in RGL Main's (short) history, the division is wide open. Could be fun to watch over the next few weeks.

Div. 2 rankings coming Monday.

Nice power rankings, I appreciate the effort you put into this and looks solid overall. My 2 cents, Jodd team is a top 3 team, they need to overcome the inconsistencies. Everything else I agree with.

Loving the rankings, a couple I might disagree with, (Claps team a bit low, Frantic a bit high because of my scout play XD) but overall good job!

I just minus-fragged your post.

FAQ
What does this mean?
The amount of frags (points) on your comment and TFTV account has decreased by one.

Why did you do this?
There are several reasons I may deem a comment to be unworthy of positive or neutral frag. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Rudeness towards other TFTVers,
  • Spreading incorrect information,
  • Sarcasm not correctly flagged with a /s.

Am I banned from the TFTV?
No - not yet. But you should refrain from making comments like this in the future. Otherwise I will be forced to issue an additional minus-frag, which may put your commenting and posting privileges in jeopardy.

I don't believe my comment deserved a minus-frag. Can you un-minus-frag it?
Sure, mistakes happen. But only in exceedingly rare circumstances will I undo a minus-frag. If you would like to issue an appeal, shoot me a private message explaining what I got wrong. I tend to respond to TFTV PMs within several minutes. Do note, however, that over 99.9% of minus-frag appeals are rejected, and yours is likely no exception.

How can I prevent this from happening in the future?
Accept the minus-frag and move on. But learn from this mistake: your behavior will not be tolerated on TFTV. I will continue to issue minus-frags until you improve your conduct. Remember: TFTV is privilege, not a right.

Clearcut is significantly better than villa. If anything Villa should go and we should keep 2 KOTH maps.
It never made any sense to just have 1 KOTH map and 7 CP maps every season.
