Intermediate Week 3 Power Rankings and Predictions

Introduction


Week 3: koth_ashville_rc1

Welcome to Week 3 of RGL Highlander! After another exciting week, we are moving back to KotH and have some very exciting matchups. Unfortunately due to a very busy real-life schedule this week, I haven't had much free time to work on the article so it will be brief.

Teams with strong damage will dominate this week. Experienced flanks will control the map; a high-level Scout and Soldier can make the enemy team pawns of their matches, controlling when and how they push. Players such as Pauly, maak, and em should pound this week.

Predictions


Intermediate Red


Arctic Monkeys vs.massive cranium esports (MOTW)

Arctic Monkeys come into another exciting matchup against one of the higher teams in this division. Similar to last week on Swiftwater, small yet valuable plays will win the match. Although massive cranium esports enters this week off of a depressing loss to one of the less skilled teams in the division, there is no definitive “better team” in this matchup. massive cranium esports has performed very well on other KotH maps and Arctic Monkeys have been displaying solid results against Main teams this week. Pauly especially has been making the difference on Scout that his team needs for them to win again this week. It should be very close, but I will give the win to Arctic Monkeys. I cannot wait to see how this match plays out.

Prediction: 4-2 Arctic Monkeys

Red’s Rambunction Rampagers vs. Four Loko 14% ALC 400mg CAF
Prediction: 3-0 Four Loko 14% ALC 400mg CAF

Duck Duck Duck Duck vs. Some Assembly Required
Prediction: 4-1 Duck Duck Duck Duck

404 Players Not Found vs. Waifus of War
Prediction: 4-2 Waifus of War

Intermediate Blue


IM Legend vs. Leo Fan Club
Prediction: 4-1 IM Legend

Tentatek TF2 vs. Bedtime Stories
Prediction: 4-0 Bedtime Stories

Clear Comms vs. Corncake’s Dormroom
Prediction: 4-1 Corncake’s Dormroom

Utopia Turned Dystopian vs. Anthrax
Prediction: 4-0 Anthrax
