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 7!
You’re dreaming of a playoffs run,
it’s probably just going to be a dream for Split 2 if you’re Avant. The reality is looking bleak.
You missed the last few weeks of the OPL,
you’re probably wondering where has it all gone wrong for the Chiefs? Outright second to a dog fight for fourth raises a few eyebrows.
It’s the Week of the Wolf,
a 2-0 over Chiefs and Order would have the team barking the house down. With some luck, they might even clinch first over Legacy too.
Things are evidently spiralling out of control for Gravitas,
let us highlight two stats for you. Since N0body returned to the Rift, he hasn’t got a kill in four games (0/16/13). Gravitas have only taken two towers in the last two weeks too. It’s looking rather grim.
Week 5 was an anomaly for Legacy,
you have to wonder if Week 6 is now the trend. Have they counted their eggs before they’ve hatched?
Snowball’s power rankings were still around,
there would be arguments for Mammoth being in first place after making last week’s Sliding Doors look like a piss take.
You ever doubted if Doss still had it in him to potentially make it to another international event,
his demolition job last week should instill some hope. If Order can keep it up, they’re a real title contender.
Pentanet don’t bottle this weekend,
the battle for the OPL title would arguably be the greatest in history. This team has some scalps under their belt already, and it’s only a matter of time before they get another one.
That’s all we have for this week. Check back every Friday for more sliding doors!
