As part of Fireside Casts' coverage of IM/Main/Advanced this season, we decided to write up an article with input from a few Main leaders of the preseason rankings of the teams this season.

We're experimenting a little bit with coverage this season, so hopefully you guys can get a good picture of Main this season from this!

Though loafe’s play in season 9 Advanced playoffs restricts him to the flank scout role

He played scout on the adv team that died, but soldier on our team as a sub (Thrembology)

There was a slight error in the list prior to publication. When PERUTECH had frosters on their roster they were Playoff Finalists. A few hours before publication we got word about the roster update and I thought I had edited it, but I guess I put the previous draft I had instead of the final draft. They're moved to Bubble Playoffs :)

Yup, I decided it was more important to include his soldier play since he played the entirety of thrembology's playoffs run minus the opening match I believe?

lets throw some sauce on it this thread is starving

  • ranking the minions by peak potential is shortsighted, i think theyre more likely to miss top4 than they are to win
  • WANG should be happy to be bubble playoffs but i dont think they have much potential to surprise
  • if cat noises dont die or get bored they should be an easy mark for playoffs
  • theres no way that RHMP is below the 3 teams above them
  • theres no way that nug hub is below the 4 teams above them
  • probably my oldhead bias but coconut oil looks a lot more reliable than the 3 moveup teams in Mid Main
  • jaguar sucks but hes not low main, and hes got better zoomers than any of the other Low Main teams as well
  • it would be much funnier and more fair to have written up dave2 rudely instead of excluding them

good points!

rhmp is in a weird scenario where they have been losing a few scrims to low main teams. not sure what their scout scenario is right now though with magic. things would've been diff if they kept k1ng/rex

i watch a few of the demos/streams of the teams when doing the ranking. needless to say nug hub could b bubble playoffs main but i rated them after their pickup of zoomxze. probably new team things but they were losing to teams ranked lower and haven't seen them beat any of the bubble playoffs teams (yet). comms look really hectic and if you knew some of the things going on with their team it'd be justified

coconut oil is a good team. actually a lot of the people rated them low main but they beat one or two of the bubble teams iirc. i'm really high on the guitarfreak stocks

no counter for the jag argument. i still remember the match against happybob on sunshine tbh

Our team just has some minor difficulties.Once we fix that I think theres no doubt in my mind we are high main. I do still think we are heavily underrated but its what ever its an opinion. Also its not like our team is bad we have alot of great players on our team we just need to execute it properly to actually produce results. Also I do think this list is incredibly short sighted. I think alot of teams including mine have the potentinal to upset most of these teams.
P.S make sure to downfrag me tryna average like -60.
