Playoffs Round 1 Manatsu’s Newspaper

Hi! Manatsu here, power ranking and predicting who will win their matches this week. As someone competing in the Plat league and spending time creating content for that league, I don’t have as much free time to watch the Gold league games. This means all my rankings and predictions will be made by my ELO system. We are entering the first round of playoffs with a thrilling set of 8 matches for the top 16 teams. Since all the other teams are not competing anymore, they will not be included in the power rankings. At the end of this newspaper, I have a new section for Players of the Week. I use the stats provided by the Blue Otter League to determine who performed the best. With that said, let’s get started!

Current MVP Race

I didn’t include this portion of the newspaper in last week’s iteration, but I’m adding it now. This MVP race is tallied by the rankings of the Impact Efficiency Ratings on Blue Otter League’s Stats sheet. If you have made it onto the Challenger Team (best IER rating), you earn 3 points. Making the Grandmaster Team earns you 2 points and the Master team 1 point. Unlike professional sports systems, I will be tallying the points into playoffs (traditional sports have a separate MVP for the season and for the finals). The point format for those rounds will vary. Round 1 and Quarterfinals retain the same format. For Semifinals, the Challenger Team members will earn 2 points and the Grandmaster Team members will earn 1 point. The reason for this change is that there will only be 4 teams competing for these points. For Finals, the Challenger Team will earn 1 point. Here is the current standings for the MVP race!


1st: Exiled Blade, Chubby Babies Cinder, 8pts

1st: Rurfu, The Collective Esports, 8pts

3rd: Lil Natz, Mad Rawrs, 6pts
