Welcome back to Sliding Doors, where each week we run through the OPL teams with sometimes spicy, sometimes nice if/then takes, and every now and then an additional bonus one around a special topic.
You might be familiar with this concept if you’re an AFL fan, which is where we got the idea. So without further ado, here are your sliding doors for the OPL Split 1 playoffs!
You think there might be a more iconic duo than Avant and finishing 5th,
there’s not. Bring on the memes!
Chiefs could have secured first place last week,
the preparation leading into the playoffs could have been vastly different. Now they have to dig deep and work hard.
You refuse to play Ornn,
you’re set for an uphill battle in your playoffs run.
You were to give Gravitas a grade for their season,
the end result would provide a pass given initial expectations. Pabu’s return really gave this team a shot in the arm, as their season was looking abysmal early on.
You’re a long time OPL follower,
this feels incredibly eerie. It’s not the first time Legacy has won the regular season and looked the better team.
This season, however, they’ve had to overcome some serious hurdles. Has the experience given the squad enough character to finally lift the cup?
You’re reviewing Mammoth’s Split 1,
there’s nothing to learn. It’s a go next for Split 2 — although things might look just as grim there too.
You’re wondering if Order is a pretender or contender,
let me be clear: pretender. With that said, wouldn’t be the first time Order has proven this website wrong.
You’re looking for gifts to give the Pentanet faithful,
avoid items such as ties, marbles, Yowies, or any item that could present as a choking hazard.
That’s all we have for this week. Sliding doors will be in hibernation mode over the offseason, but we’ll return prior to Split 2 starting!
The Oceanic Pro League returns today.
