Week 7 Gold Power Rankings Division 1
1. Oasis Nails and Day Spa
Oasis NADS has solidified themselves as the undisputed best team in Division 1, dropping only 1 single game so far. It’s mathematically impossible for them to get 2nd seed at this point, so I expect that they’ll probably have some fun in their series against VBU Krypton if it gets played.
Player to Watch - diete + Phish Tak0
It’s really hard to pick just 1-2 players on this team to give this mention too, as they’ve all just basically breezed through this season. But these two have consistently dominated their lane opponents and have
had a stellar regular season.
2. Literal Monkeys
It’s hard to be disappointed with LTMK this season. They’re the only team to take a game off of NADS, and game 3 went to almost 40min. They put up a really strong performance and I have nothing but great things to say about them going into the playoffs.
Player to Watch - Wunderworld
I don’t like to give the same player PtW two weeks in a row, but this guy was popping off again this week. He’s dominant on the meta champions in his role, and that just makes
him even more of a threat. Will be interesting
to see how he stacks up against adcs in other
divisions in the playoffs.
3. Vitamin X
I flamed them last week, and this week they came out swinging. xStreets had a much better performance this week than in previous weeks, and they were able to come in clutch and secure a much needed victory to lock them for playoffs. There’s still a very good chance that this team can get the 3rd seed for their division if they’re able to pull a win out tonight against the Pod of Dolphins.
Player(s) to Watch - iStretchMoms
This man was stretching more than just moms last week. It’s surprising to me that
Olaf isn’t permabanned against this team.
Two great performances on Olaf, and one on
Zac makes it difficult to pick another player for
Player to Watch.
4. Dawnbreak Gaming
After a hard-fought series against VitaminX, this team drops 1 place for me in the power rankings for this division. What I thought was a great win condition for them in the top lane brings another question mark for me. What can this team do when life is a myth isn’t popping off? Right now it looks like the other players on this team aren't as comfortable being put in a position to carry. DBG’s game against LTMK have important seeding implications so it’s important for this team to figure out another way to win without only relying on top lane.
Player to Watch - Drafter?
Since I’m pretty disappointed overall with
the performance of this team last week,
I think a big issue for them is their drafting.
If this team can focus more on drafting around
their strengths, they’ll be able to put up a good
fight against LTMK.
THEY WON AGAINST A TEAM THAT ISN’T VBU KRYPTON! It seems like all their practice has finally paid off, as the first game was a pretty big stomp. They were also able to close it out in a 2-0 after winning a 45min game to finish out the series. This is the last time this will play in BOL this season as they’re out of playoff contention, at least they were able to destroy the dreams of a playoff hopeful team.
Player(s) To Watch - Gilmore Girls
Had a great series and consistently performed
for his team better than Internal Balance
from Pod of Dolphins. He showed last week that
you cant sleep on his Viktor and expect an easy win.
6. Pod of Dolphins
An unfortunate end for the Pod of Dolphins as they can’t make it to the playoffs after losing last week. This team definitely could have had promise if the roster issues that plagued them were solved earlier on in the season, but right now all they can do is destroy the dreams of VitaminX getting better seeding by beating them 2-0.
Player to Watch - Whole team
Since there’s really not much left to fight for, look to see this team try some cheese strats to maybe deny VitX the third seed.
