Sliding Doors: OPL 2020 Split 2, Week 8

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 8!


Any OPL team is in need of a miracle,

it’s Avant. They’re looking more likely to finish seventh instead of fifth, despite Chazz’s best efforts.


You gave a pass mark to Dragku’s role swap after two weeks this season,

we wouldn’t blame you for backtracking on that after recent performances. The Chiefs are struggling, and Dragku is the big pressure point.


We were to hedge our bets on the Raydere Medal right now,

Shok would have to be a shoe-in. At least give him the Carbon Award surely.


There’s a team that leaves a lot to be desired,

Gravitas is top of the list. On the Rift, lacklustre results. Off the Rift, no content. Give us something!


You’re an OPL team looking at the final round robin before playoffs and fearing your game against Legacy,

you’d hope Halo is playing mid when you play them. While he’s good, he’s struggling to fit in on the roster, and it shows.


I owe anyone an apology for giving them a rough time in this column,

it’s Mammoth. They’ve really managed to turn the ship around and sixth place is within reach.


You think Order is the most in-form team in the OPL right now,

you’d be right. Swip3rR and Eyla are firing on all cylinders, and they look like the best team in the league heading into the playoffs.


BioPanther keeps getting his Dr. Mundo,

we’re not just tipping Pentanet to win the OPL. They could win Worlds at this rate.


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

The Oceanic Pro League returns today.
