How are you going? Here's this weeks top five players.
G’day everyone! The first of the four Winter Majors took place last weekend, and if the title wasn’t enough of a giveaway, it was the Oceania Major. These five players made their mark over the course of the two-day event, including the player who took down Renegades and the animal with all the clips...
5. LACHLAN “FEVER” AITCHISON - MINDFREAK
Mindfreak leapfrogged Renegades in the table by a single point by finishing fourth overall. Fever ensured his team stayed level with the competition with his clinical passes (0.77 per game) and immaculate defensive positioning (1.73 saves per game).
4. HAMISH “BAKED POTATO” HOLDEN - TEAM PROCESS
Renegades fell flat against R!OT Gaming in the upper bracket, suffering an 0-3 defeat. And although they quickly dealt with Hazard Esports, handling Team Process proved more difficult, largely down to this popular foodstuff. Baked Potato does not miss - for every shot he took in those four games, he scored a goal against the Renegades, including this game three winner:
Team Process crashed out in the round of six, but still jumped to tenth in the overall points table despite only forming at the start of the Winter Split.
3. LUKE “AMPHIS” RIDDELL - GROUND ZERO GAMING
Ground Zero’s star man Amphis did not disappoint as he delivered 22 goals over the course of the event which he successfully backed up with a respectable three shots per game and most of his team’s saves, however, this week one of his teammates stole the limelight, more on that shortly…
2. MACLEAN “LE DUCK” REES - R!OT GAMING
Terribly sorry, oh no I did it again!
Le Duck was easily the most memorable player of the week, with plays like these keeping his opponent’s rotations (and egos) in check. Besides these though, the Aussie had a fairly average statline with a modest 0.74 goals and 2.26 shots per game.
1. DANIEL “TORSOS” PARSONS - GROUND ZERO GAMING
Only one person broke the one goal per game barrier, and it was this guy. Torsos had a weekend to remember as he outshone both his teammates for the first time in a while, and delivered a beautiful air dribble bump against adversaries R!OT.
Torsos also successfully set up his teammates for goals on 12 occasions over the course of the event, built up a pretty collection of saves and put three shots towards the opposition net each game.
Want more RLCS X action from OCE? You’ll have to wait until the Spring Split, but the Winter Majors continue in South America this Saturday at 2.30pm GMT, see you there!
