Yung Pinch's Power Rankings (Week 7)

1. Serenity (11-1)


Explanation-  

         

     We just continue to see wins coming from this team, Serenity went on another 2-0 week and it is hard to say that there is a team that will touch them.  Last week they had the rematch of Scum Gang and Chubby Babies. Against Scum Gang Serenity  looked to be the first team to truly shut down the bot lane and Jungle of Scum Gang. Cmonshootfaster was not able to carry like he once was and the jungle difference was huge for Serenity. The Chubby Babies game was bot lane focused for Serenity and BetterTopW1ns saw who is better than him during that game. The draft phase for Serenity is looking good and they are playing to their strengths. This team might just run away with the playoffs is no one can stop them.

Week 7 Predictions-

 

     This week Serenity have two teams that are trying to prove themselves or make it to playoffs in Literal Monkeys and Friend Zoned. While i predict a 2-0, Literal Monkeys were only team to take a game off Serenity this split. As for Friend Zoned the new roster is showing good progress and might just make it into playoffs but they are probably going to have a rough time taking down Serenity. The winning streak will continue for these sets of games another 2-0 for this squad.

2. Scum Gang (9-3) ▲1
  

Explanation-

 

     Scum Gang has weather the roster changes and stays near the top of the tables in my power rankings. I thought they would have a rough week but they pulled out the W in t he 1-1 week against Literal Monkeys. Scum Gang seems to provide a mental block for the Literal Monkeys because the game plans they set up shatter whenever they face each other. For the Serenity game, Scum Gang looked like a little lost and didn’t play correctly for their comp. Taunty was tasked with being one of primary engages for Scum Gang and things didn’t work out for them. Serenity also had a huge advantage in the jungle with Denali going 0/8 during that game. This wasn’t to far from expectations for me because Serenity is looking just too good to beat right now. While i did get meme’d for predicting the 0-2 for them for the first time they pulled through the week with a 1-1 finish and showed that they are the true number 2 team in the league.

 

Week 7 Predictions-

     Scum Gang faces Illumination and Friend Zoned this week, which is going to be exciting to see. This is the first game against Friend Zoned with the revamped roster. It's really Scum Gang versus Scum Gang lite and i'm not sure who has the upper hand in this match up. They move on to play Illumination aka SadBoySquad so that is a confirmed W. i'm think this could be a 2-0 week for Scum Gang provided Friend Zoned doesn’t show up strong but who knows, i was wrong last week and they could prove me wrong again.

3. Literal Monkeys (10-2) ▼1


Explanation-

 

     Literal Monkeys had an average week and played below my expectations in the 1-1 finish. They played Aztecs and Scum Gang last week, and while 1-1 isn’t the end of the world i think they just can’t beat Scum Gang. they have something blocking them from playing and executing a good game plan against that team. They are constantly playing away from the mid lanes and jungle strengths whenever they face. From this game they moved onto Ozone Aztecs and the game plan was executed fine. We saw the reserve jungle come out from the Monkeys, which was interesting to see them incorporate a new face this late into the season. Could be a new way to throw off people’s drafts against them. Wasn’t a bad week for them by any means but i was hoping we would see them claim the second spot in the rankings but unfortunately for them that didn’t happen.
    

Week 7 Predictions-

     This week is a pretty interesting one, because they play against Serenity and Chubby Babies. They were the only team to take a game of Serenity this split. Chubby Babies has a newer roster and is looking to secure playoffs so they need these victories. My heart wanted to say 0-2 and Chubby Babies  steal a big game off Literal Monkeys but ill be more modest and go with 1-1. Win against Chubby Babies and loss against Serenity.

4. Chubby Babies (4-8) ▲3

 

Explanation-

     When i first made rankings i was kind of shocked that i listed Chubby Babies so high. But then i started to look back and see consistent game play and them earning big victories when it mattered. Some people might think this is an over rating but i'm confident with at fourth place because of BetterTopW1ns. Last week they faced SPK White and Serenity, which i thought was going to be a really tough week for them. They have pushed rather into the top teams than i thought they would. For the Serenity game is looked like a pretty standard loss from them. The overall skill level is just too high right now for most teams to take a game off Serenity. The big game for me was SPK White, because this  was a true middle of the pack team who looked stronger coming into week 6. I was incorrect with my predictions last week because i didn’t account for the Top lane Chubby Babies X factor. With him in the game the team looks more controlled and explosive.

 

Week 7 Predictions-

 

     They face off against Atlas S5U and Literal Monkeys. While Atlas has a new roster i think that the Chubby Babies top laner might be too much to handle causing the game to fall into the hands of Chubby Babies. For the Literal Monkeys game i'm going to go with history and pick Literal Monkeys to win if they shut down BetterTopW1ns. If things go bad early Literal Monkeys could drop the game. Overall i'm going to 1-1 week for Chubby Babies but i'm always expecting upsets.

5. Atlas S5U (5-7) ▲3
    

Explanation-

 

     At last like many of the other teams have a new lineup and i'm not sure who is going to play at any given time.  But this team has one thing that others don't, ViperFang. While i don’t know if he is going to be playing this week, having him in the potential line up is enough for me to excited. Last week they played against Illumination and SPK White. The Illumination game isn’t much to write home about, Illumination is looking like the worst team in the league so far. The SPK game is one where i wasn’t sure who would win. But i was hoping for a Atlas Victory. SPK was able to get mid and adc very fed, it was all downhill from there is looked like. Hopefully this week Atlas can get the roster situated and keep going forward. I'm happy to see an Atlas team that isn’t last place for once.


    

Week 7 Predictions-

 

     They face Chubby Babies and Team Boba Boyis. I'm thinking they can have a 1-1 week. Chubby Babies is pretty hot right now in the backpack of BetterTopW1ns. So i'm thinking they might drop the first game and rebound with a win against a lackluster Boba Boys. I’m not counting Atlas out just yet for the 2-0 week but i'm leaning towards the 1-1 week 7 finish.

6. SPK White (7-5) ▼2
    

Explanation-

 

     I considered putting SPK White higher than 6th place this week but i just can’t get around the constant roster changes. The only remaining player are Jesus and Shadowballs. This team is different week to week and i'm never sure who is going to be subbed in or replaced. This last week they played against Chubby Babies and Atlas S5U. they were able to secure the 1-1 week with a win against a new roster of Atlas and defeat from the Chubby Babies carry top laner. I think that if they can lock down the roster and keep consistency they will finish the season higher than 6th place but right now i'm very uncertain with their performance.


    

Week 7 Predictions-

 

     So this week could go one of two ways, they steam roll 2-0 or they lose again to Ozone Aztecs. With the uncertainty of the roster i'm not sure what will happen but I'm thinking they can at least take a game off of Boba Boys right?

7. Friend Zoned (3-9) ▼1
  

Explanations-

 

     My poor Friend Zoned brothers are in for the fight of their lives just to make playoffs. One miss step could change their standings. Last week i had some big expectations for Friend Zoned and it was pretty much shattered. While i like a lot of the players on this team i don’t think this roster is built for the right reasons or with the right pieces. Friend Zoned from all accounts had an easy week where for the players on the roster i would expect an easy 2-0. But things didn’t work out for them against Boba Boys. the roster that played against Ozon3 Aztecs is one that i could get behind. If they field that roster in week 7 i'm thinking that they would shock a lot of people. Without it i'm expecting another disappointing week.


    

Week 7 Predictions-

     This team has one of the harder weeks going against Scum Gang and Serenity. I'm not sure if they can show up and take a game off of one of our power house teams but i think they might be able to do it. Maybe a optimistic 1-1 prediction for this team. Going 0-2 isn’t really something they can afford this week.

8.  Ozon3 Aztecs (4-8) ▼3
    

Explanations-

 

     Ozon3 Aztecs are a team that produces mixed results every week and i'm never sure what will happen with them. Last week they faced Literal Monkeys and Friend Zoned. I was kind of expecting them to lose both games but i thought the Friend Zoned game would be close. Literal Monkeys pretty much played the normal win through mid and bot play style. I would normally think that Ozon3’s bot lane could stand up to them but they look slower without pronibs. The Friend Zoned game looked rough for them not being able to control acme. They added FunkyTator also and he didn’t have bad games but he did look like he was still settling into the team. Hopefully his synergy will be better soon. Overall i expect this team to do better, last week wasn’t the greatest week for them.


  

Week 7 Predictions-

 

     They play against Illumination and SPK White. The Illumination game should be an easy victory and they could maybe get another victory from SPK. but i'm going to be conservative and go with 1-1 week for Ozon3.

9. Illumination (4-8) ▲1


     Illumination is on a streak right to the bottom, the only reason they didn’t 0-2 last week was because they played a worse team. The team that i once thought would be the gatekeepers of 5th has fallen hard and fast. They played Atlas and Boba Boys last week. Atlas pushed them around pretty easy which is sad to say for a newly formed team. For the Boba Boys game they were able to just bully them because Boba boys are the only team worse than Illumination right now.

Week 7 Predictions-

 

     If you aren’t Boba Boys then you will beat Illumination, should be going 0-2 for the foreseeable future.

10. Team Boba Boys (3-9) ▼1
    

     I had some big hopes for this team even when i ranked them so low all split. But the inconsistency and lack of talent on the rosters that they changed has caught up with them. They are pretty much destined to fight in relegation after the season. Last week they faced Illumination and Friend Zoned, they got 0-2’ed because they have no synergy and no true carry or person to play through. I always hoped for them to make a turn around and we almost saw something from them. But the story of this team is disappointment and under performance.

 

Week 7 Predictions-

 

     They will lose to everyone right now so i don’t think it matter who they play the predictions will always be 0-2.
