Howdy all, and welcome to Snowball Esports’ weekly OPL Power Rankings. These will be hot off the press each Monday morning, serving only the hottest takes fresh out of the oven that was the last week’s games. Our panel includes our three writers: Reece, Andrew and Callum, our wonderful designer Swifty, and former SIN Gaming coach Bencel.
Let’s see how the teams shake out now that we’ve seen all the teams go once around the rift!
A quick note on power rankings: Power Rankings are different to how one would traditionally rank teams. Normal rankings are a bit more based on ability than results. In a traditional ranking if one team beat another you could still rank them lower if you thought they were still worse than the team they beat. Power Rankings are by definition recency-biased and results-focused and are more of a snapshot of how a team looks right now than how they have looked throughout the year or how they project overall. A bad loss may see a team drop below a team most would see them as being better than. A string of losses can see a team tumble down the rankings.
