Hello everyone! You’re one and only Poptart is back to give you some rankings and some useless nonsense to go with it, for the week 3 of the ammy league! If you’re new to this article each week, teams ranks are voted on from the community and I do a little write up about how the team is doing and what I think of them. Hope you enjoy!
9. Bad Intentions (0-5)
FF against Underrated, Supernova and Aftershock
Every season has to have one and it’s unfortunate to say Bad Intentions is the dead team for this ammy season. It’s unfortunate to the possibly 3 active players on the team that your captain had to leave you this season, I hope you can find someone to still play this season. Best of luck. I most likely won’t be listing Bad Intentions in next week’s rankings due to it being a dead team, unless of course some miracle comes and save the team from being a forfeit factory.
8. Reflex (3-4)
Victory over Affinity 5-2 (Nuclear Taco 42, DasJagers, Big Al 60, MVRetrograder (sub))
Loss against Legendary 5-0 (Nuclear Taco 42, DasJagers, Big Al 60)
This week Reflex managed to get another win, and one of those being against another underdog team Affinity securing themselves a 2-0 against them and a loss against Legendary although being a 3v4. With only 2 games and 1 of them being a 3v4 I feel we haven’t seen much more out of Reflex than last week, but I want to start seeing Taco and Killjoy, the two standout players, show us the strengths Reflex can have. At least I feel like they were starting to gain some momentum since week 2, but I think Killjoy is going to have to be there for games to pull off any wins past Affinity. Next week Reflex has only one game, but it’ll be against the very strong 5-0 Eclipse, although unlikely, a win against Eclipse would change everything for Reflex.
MVP W2: Nuclear Taco 42
7. Affinity (1-6)
Loss against Reflex 5-2, Oblivion 5-3 and Underrated 5-2
Right now it’s looking really rough for Affinity, with yet another loss against Reflex, the last ranked team, Affinity is having a tough time picking up a win against anyone not named Bad Intentions. Not all hope is lost for the Affinity squad though, as they have traded their draft player for NinjadYoAss, the missing piece to GankedYoAss, and now they have both tools to make the most powerful duo of all time. All that aside, picking up Ninja is very good for Affinity, adding another solid player to the team, so now they don’t have to rely on a 4 man roster, they’re also reuniting Ninjad and Ganked which adds some friend power chemistry. We’ll have to see how effective that proves to be though, and next week and it’ll really have to be something impressive because they’re facing up against Eclipse, Aftershock, Legendary and Supernova, good luck to you guys and may the power of friendship be with you.
MVP W2: Pacfan010
6. Oblivion (2-2)
Victory over Affinity 5-3 (Mr Crobar, SonicNachos, JohnMo, MVRetrograder (sub))
There’s still a lot more to be seen out of Oblivion, but with the lack of games it’s hard to have a clear view of where they’re at. With a win against Affinity and Reflex and a loss from both Eclipse and Underrated, the most we can really assume is that they’re somewhere there in the middle between those teams. I think there’s still a lot of opportunity to see where they’re really at though. I still have to stress how good Crobar and Sonic are looking this season, I’m excited to see if they can beat the higher ranked teams and how they will end up doing in a rematch against Eclipse and Underrated. We’ll at least get a chance to see the rematch against Underrated being their first game in week 4, and then 2 other big games against Legendary and Aftershock, if they get any of those wins, I think an Oblivion top 4 spot would be very possible.
MVP W2: Mr Crobar
5. Supernova (2-3)
Loss against Eclipse 5-0
With each coming week, Supernova looks stronger and stronger, but with the 5-0 loss this week against Eclipse they just aren’t quite there with the no. 1 team yet. With Eternally being such a dominate player and the rest all being able to structure around him as they’re all solid players too. The only thing, I think, they have been missing is the teamwork to make it work against the other top teams. Once they find that piece, it could be hard to stop Supernova at that point. This week Supernova gets a rematch game against Underrated, and then a overdog game against Affinity. Beating Underrated would be a great way to show the progress their team is making through the season.
W2 MVP: Eternally
4. Legendary (3-1)
Victory over Reflex 5-0
With only 2 wins against Reflex, 1 win against Affinity and a loss against undefeated Eclipse. It’s hard to see where Legendary stands other than not quite being that no. 1 threat that was assumed at the beginning of the season. It stays the same that Legendary still looks like a top 4 team threat, we’ll just have to wait for that result for sure. Week 3 will be a perfect time to do that though as they are facing Underrated twice, Oblivion and Supernova.
MVP: BROLY THE LEGND
3. Aftershock (4-2)
Victory over Underrated 5-0 (TcT Avenger, TcT Conviction, Falltiltheend, Hide yo o kiddz)
With the dominant win against Underrated that Aftershock needed to show that they were of the very best. So far they have proved that they’re squad of former teammates made for having teamwork far above any other team right now right next to Eclipse, and that’s where they truly thrive. Making confident passes, that players that have already been playing with each other for awhile can pull off. Aftershock is a very aggressive team, with very capable tanks that, even when they don’t have the stats to show it, and at least this week it showed to overwhelm Underrated. This week Aftershock will have a chance to shock their opponents (okay I’ll go RIP after that one), facing up against Oblivion and getting a rematch game against Eclipse. Will Aftershock be able to take down yet another undefeated team?
MVP W3: Falltiltheend
2. Underrated (5-1)
Victory over Affinity 5-2 (Godly HCS, MVRetrograder, Inactive Spoon, HWM Jester)
Loss against Aftershock 5-0 (PoisonxPoptart, Godly HCS, MVRetrograder, Frequent Change)
The 5-0 loss against Aftershock really hurt Underrated since it was so dominate. But if they took anything from that loss, it’s that they still have a lot to prove this season. So far Underrated’s defense was looking to be some of best out of the teams, but against the pressure of Aftershock they couldn’t seem to pull that out anywhere. That game aside Underrated still looks like a very strong team (considering they still have the no. 2 spot in the votes). And to keep that spot or even take the no. 1 place they’ll have to make sure to fix any mistakes they previously had and turn them into strengths (or you know, just make sure they aren’t mistakes). This week Underrated have a loaded week and will play against the undefeated team Eclipse, a rematch against Oblivion, and a double header against Legendary. All those game are huge for them, and every will count.
MVP W3: Godly HCS
1. Eclipse (5-0)
Victory over Supernova 5-0 (inMotion Venom, sjew, warhero1990, Aether Conquest)
With yet another win against another higher tier team, Eclipse is now looking to be unstoppable, and yet again obvious why they have the no. 1 spot in the rankings again. Similar to Aftershock they’re teamwork is miles above everyone else’s. With energetic offensive/defensive passes that no other team in the league has right now, and easily the best play making team as of now. The tanking line may look lack luster on paper, but are actually all very solid tanks especially Warhero1990. It will be interesting if Eclipse can keep this undefeated streak going through the season, or who will be the first to catch up to them and defeat them, because right now they are ahead of the pack. Next week Eclipse is looking for some more wins against Reflex, Affinity, Underrated and Aftershock.
MVP W3: inMotion Venom
