Sliding Doors: OPL 2020 Split 2, Week 6

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 2, Week 6!


There are three certainties in life,

it’s death, taxes, and Avant finishing fifth. Despite falling off the pace last week, they have a real chance to bounce back with a 2-0 this week to stay in touch. It’s probably in God’s plan.


You’re looking at the top of the OPL table and licking your lips at a potential El Clasico final,

let’s just pull on the brakes a wee tad. Chiefs fans will surely remember the misery of last split when things were looking like this.


There was an unsung hero of Split 2,

it’s Shok. I don’t think it can be overstated how much of a rock he is for the Dire Wolves squad. If Shok keeps playing well, then another grand finals berth isn’t out of the question.


Gravitas want to put daylight between them and the bottom of the table,

this week is a good chance to do so. That’s not to mention another win over Avant could have huge implications for head-to-heads come the end of the split.


We were to take a stab in the dark at why Legacy lost last week,

it’s probably our fault. We’re sorry for jinxing you. We can’t promise it won’t happen again though.


You can’t wait until August for Summer Games Done Quick 2020,

tune in to Mammoth’s games this week. Chiefs and Legacy are going for the Any% speedrun.


There are four certainties in life,

it’s death, taxes, Avant finishing fifth, and Order neutralizing a 2-0 week with a 0-2 (and vice versa). Hopefully they can break that trend this week.


Pentanet truly want to cement themselves in the race for the title,

this week will be key. Two of their biggest challenges yet, but both games are completely winnable.


That’s all we have for this week. Check back every Friday for more sliding doors!
