dave2Hi Every1

just wanna let u no that the couch podcast is trying to put together lil frag highlight videos for the episodes. problem is, demos are a bit scarce this time of year. so, if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with hitting dope shots syndrome and want to send in a sample for analysis, please direct it towards either jemond (je'mond#0007) or alfredodan (alfredodan#9937) on discord.

looking to put 1 in each episode, so don't be afraid to send those mfs in. match frags preferred, but if u do something cool in a scrim i might b able to look the other way

thank U and gah bless

finna go through vods/stv's this weekend

if you go clips hit my discord je'mond#0007
if you got something and it got clipped through twitch. I can sniff thru stv's that way too you ain't gotta send the whole stv link if you don't want to sniff.

also (should we add invite clips ahahah not artist bias or anything ahahahaha)

RGL S6 Advanced Power Rankings, Pt. 2 of 3
6/12/2021

Roster Spreadsheet

Video Commentary with je'mond, slugmundo, and alfredodan

Once again, the RGL season moves into the mid-point after a busy Snakewater week, leaving no team with their zero.

The next three maps are all incredibly distinct with a new-ish map in Villa, the projectile-centric Gullywash, and of course new addition (to non-Invite, at least) Bagel. The division is already competitive enough and I'm sure this'll throw another wrench into things.
_____

#1 una limonada por favor (7-1)
In spite of a 4-5 loss to end Snakewater week (historically a weaker map for these players), I don't think you can hold it against them too much considering how close it was and that they've beaten every other contender they've played yet. Of course, it does prove true what we mentioned last week in that they're far from unbeatable. This next week will be interesting as well as Dunker is on leave, forcing them to shuffle their roster.

#2 RHDP (6-2) [+3]
After a series of unfortunate events in their first week resulting in back to back losses, RHDP has brought it back hard and won six in a row. They had a close call winning 4-3 on Product against Fresh Installs, then scraped by THE GOBLIN ZONE in a slow-burn 3-2. Now that they've regrouped, they've got two tough matches with serious playoff implications coming up versus una limonada por favor and Anglerfish Holdings.

#3 THE GOBLIN ZONE (6-2) [+1]
I've said enough about this team over the last few seasons that there isn't much left to say. I don't see them having the extra spark to win the division outright, but stranger things have happened and I can imagine this these guys beating anyone on the right day.

#4 Lombre (5-3) [-1]
Lombre lurked down the middle of the table for a while not through any fault of their own, it's simply that they played their last Snakewater match late. Now with that one in the bag, they've rightfully re-entered the playoff zone in the official standings. Even though a 5-3 record isn't the hottest, two of their losses were by a single round, one to BLANC on Product and one to fellow top Spanish themed team una limonada on Metalworks. Keeping that in mind, they're still definitely contenders.

#5 GlobalClan Lightning (5-3) [-3]
Even the mighty KJKUOD was not enough to stop una limonada from sweeping them 4-0 on Product. They rebounded with back to back wins over bubble boys BLANC and anilist.co. However, shockingly enough, Journey hit them with an absolute earthquake of 5-0 roll on Snakewater. I critique against them too harshly considering they had a sub (ump) and that they've generally been the more consistent team, however, in such a competitive season that's going to be a tough hit for the playoff seedings.

#6 Journey (4-4) [+2]
As mentioned above, Journey showed up in a big way and completely grounded GlobalClan Lightning. It's an impressive win for sure - yet with only a 4-4 record there's still a shitload of work to be done before Journey can start feeling comfortable with where they're at. The pressure's on now to prove it was no fluke.

#7 TAINTED Gaming (5-3) [+2]
Beep_boop's squad had a hot showing on Product before simmering down with two tough losses on Snakewater. Their King of the Hill performances definitely impress, but they still have yet to prove themselves with a big win on a 5CP map, which considering that's most of the map pool, is more important. The recent loss of vin on combo scout also taints their recent success as roster changes this late in the season can lead to unpredictable results.

Note, Vin left after this was drafted so that was not taken into account for ranking purposes. XBS is now on scout.

#8 BLANC Esports (4-4) [-1]
For better or for worse and aside from what's already been mentioned prior in relation to other teams, there isn't much more new about BLANC at this point. Tery's crew is chugging along steady as always.

#9 anilist.co (5-3) [-3]
anilist, or Gentleman's Mafia as they prefer, is much like BLANC is that there isn't a whole lot else to mention that hasn't been said already. That said, they did have a notably lackluster performance as they very gradually grinded out a win over watch This, a team which has had it's share of internal struggle recently. Nonetheless, a win is a win at the end of the day (unlike the first two seasons of RGL, cough cough).

#10 @37 (4-4) [+4]
Considering they don't scrim at all minus pre-games, a 50% win rate is a more than respectable showing. That said, with unfamiliar maps coming up in the latter half of the season, it'll be intriguing to see how they handle those going in raw.

(Continued from above)

#11 GUTTER BAZOOKA: ONLINE (4-4) [-2]
For the most part, our forecast was correct and they've performed roughly according to expectations. That comes with the exception of their misfire against watch This on Product where they suffered a rough 0-4 loss. I expected them to be an excellent Product team as it seemed their cast's strengths catered to the map, though stylistically it seems that isn't the case.

#12 All Caked Up (5-3) [+5]
This team has run through a pretty chill schedule with ease. However, that's not the main reason this team has risen up the rankings. Moving Air to scout will definitely allow him to have a greater impact on the game and should overall give them some extra firepower. Even if Air does decide to run Shortstop.

#13 Obese Whales (3-5)
They've really had a whale of the time with their major roster switch-ups, legal issues, the death of their team and subsequent resurrection. Despite all those mishaps, they've managed to float along well enough with a 3-5 record.

#14 Fresh Installs: Black (3-5) [-3]
Kronky showed up in time to snipe for Product and nearly helped them bring an end to RHDP's win streak. Although a loss, it's still an impressive showing given their limited practice schedule. On the other hand, it's not too surprising; Product does play almost perfectly to their team's strengths.

#15 watch This (3-5) [-3]
Now without their previous captain Maze, Jaytee has taken over combo scout duties to well, roughly the same effect as before. Mechanics wise, Maze might have been stronger, but the change in atmosphere makes it all pan out about the same for now. As always, we'll just have to watch and see how it develops.

#16 My Team Spins The Wheel (4-4)
The wheels keeps turning as The S4rr and crew enter the midpoint going even. Looking at results so far, they've finished off most of the lower advanced teams so things are going to get a lot, lot harder from here on out.

#17 Genetically Engineered Cat Girls (3-5) [+3]
As with many teams who have struggled to start the season, this team has re-engineered their roster quite a bit over the last couple of weeks. While adding former Invite medic Virgil on combo scout might not bring the sickest of damage output, it'll at least bring some much needed experience to the roster. Maelstrom has also hopped aboard and while he may have a few cobwebs to paw off, he can definitely be a force for this team.

#18 Los Angeles Anglerfish (2-6) [+2]
No longer at risk of going winless, the Anglerfish have caught not one but two trophies: one over Portland and another over fygisawesome.com featuring ScrewB who dropped 400+ dpm (and was shortly after removed from the team). Many roster shuffles later including the... questionable Reako demoman, they're more or less back to their original configuration, now with je'mond instead of mopsy on demoman.

#19 fygisawesome.com (1-7) [-1]
Fortune hasn't improved too much yet, though on the brightside, they'll be able to skip past half of Villa week as they pick up a free BYE win. On the other hand, could have one less match make them a little less prepared for the one they do play? Either way, they still have some winnable games on the schedule and time left to work with.
