AbsoLads Are the Best AoT Clan - Wrap-Up of Season 25

posted by Black AdderMonday, 28 December 2015

In the past few months, we had the chance to witness the very top Age of Mythology players battle for the traditional award belonging to the best clan in the whole of AoT - the Golden Banner of RTS League's Age of Mythology: The Titans Clan League. Season 25 brought some new names into the spotlight, with some others remaining in the shadow of their glory past, perhaps awaiting a better moment to pounce back and yet again grab some Banners for themselves. Let's now have a look at the path that led the new Champions to their highly coveted and prestigious prize of RTS League's shiny Gold.

Similar to last season, we have seen a remarkably smooth progress to S25 with very few hiccups along the way, underlining RTS League's strong position amongst clans and players alike - it's simply well worth it making the time and playing for the glory of your clan :) And looking at who competed this time around, we can clearly see some rivalries and egos helping along the way, too :)

Besides the established organisations like last season's Champions 2k for jesus, Deities of Death or Tsunami Clan, we have also seen a few newcomers like FROST or Fighting Immortal Newbies, with ReGeneration easily being the most discussed clan all around - its incredibly powerful line-up including the best players of today Magic and TheMista with Titou promised to supply some great games and also a serious threat to all the other clans' ambitions.

Overall, there were hardly any boring match-ups or games this season, which was also reflected by our highly improved streaming efforts on the RTS League Twitch with our casters offering you live 35 out of all the 55 possible matches - that's a pretty great number and amount of time you could have spent enjoying the high quality games played at RTS League just as they happened :) This, of course, wouldn't be possible without our dedicated streamers, for which they deserve some quite big thanks, and so here they are - thank you Chaos, Chrono, Chicks and Shelty! (If you're missing Black Adder in that list, then that's because that's me and I'm writing this post, so that would be weird :D )

And now, let's finally get to how it all went down right up until the Grand Finals:

The Path of AoL

Before the season started, probably nobody would've guessed that Albis Onis Lobias should be a favourite for even just an advance out of their division, much less some higher achievement in the Playoffs. Their Round 1 bump with FROST (vids, recs), a newcomer looking to upset the established order of things, seemed to confirm their rocky position, but right the next match with Brazilian Team (recs), basically the former Brazilian Legend, Champions of S23, hinted that it might be at least prudent to keep an eye on them. When they then dispatched Deities of Death 2:0 (vids, recs) in the last round, claiming first spot in Division 2, something was definitely in the air and ideas started floating around.

As usual though, Playoffs are an altogether different beast, and AoL's life span was counted in days rather than weeks looking how their players are excellent Norsemen, a supposedly not-so-great option against clans with experienced Greek+Eggy players, and their road included either TSM or DoD. But even before that encounter, they had to face Alliance des Résistants Francophones, a clan with potential to make anyone's day sour through their skill. This match (vids, recs) proved to be a great experience for them in the end, as even though they started well, ArF properly utilised their home map advantage through Vinlandsaga and convincingly forced in a tricky decider, testing AoL's performance under pressure.

Semifinals with Tsunami Clan (vids, recs), the second highest-seeded clan into the Playoffs, were then an array of great games and a nice showing of AoL's ability to switch between Norse and Zeus power, even though they definitely seemed more comfortable with their northern brethren rather than the lightning-wielding dude :) With the exception of TSM's favourite Medit, they were able to win all the rest with a varying degree of ease, the Savannah being probably one of the most nail-biting games of this season - a real test for TSM_Xeninha, who played her first match of the season right here in the penultimate fight :)

Lad's Way to the Top

Even though still a relatively new clan (well, in this community anything not at least 10 years old is new :d ), AbsoLads' strength was gradually becoming obvious in the past months, actually already since the last RTSL season where they've claimed the Bronze in their just second participation, giving DoD a real run for their money in the Semis (vids, recs - without VBP) along the way. The group stage only confirmed this trend, with them taking care of all the opposition including ReGen (vids, recs) without any real difficulties, facing just one problem in the first round against Organization of Natural Uppers (recs) - surprise home map Sudden Death worked for ONUs like a charm, but not even that seemed to faze Lad on their grand route to success too much.

Postseason was a pretty tough deal for them, facing the Defending Champions 2k for jesus right in the Quarters (vids, recs), but in the end all it took were a few brutal Locusts (and the toppest skill, teamplay, and all) and the path was clear to try and advance further than in Season 24 - a goal on mind of anyone performing so convincingly throughout the games so far. Brazilian Team definitely was a Semifinal opponent that had good chances of stopping them in their tracks though, being yet another recent Champion in Lad's path, but try as they might, they found it a bit too hard to crack AbsoLad's shell properly, nicking it just once in the match (vids, recs), and so we knew that this time, there's going to be a brand new Champion standing tall at the end of all this fighting.

Grand Finals

The culmination of Season 25 promised to be a singularly rare match, featuring two clans that have never made it this far, and also clans employing rather unorthodox god line-ups, with no Zeus/Isis-mains in the vicinity - AoLs as the Norse masters, Lads housing Eggy and Atties, including a very prolific Kronos. Seemingly the game balance on its head, but is it? ;)

It all started on new Frozen Wastes RTSL (vid, rec), a map made for raiding, and not surprisingly, that is exactly what we've got in great abundance - raids all over the icy place. The game developed in all kinds of interesting fashions due to its openness, with each clan having a strong and a weak side, racing against each other who can finish their opponents first before falling themselves, but in the end AoLs had a better game and proved that Norse can do very well if they know their game plan, and after some truly intense fights marched into an early lead, knowing they're one step closer to living the underdog dream.

After this tough encounter, Lad's Oasis (vid, rec) changed the pace and must've felt as one of the easier maps, with AoL's special strategy backfiring due to nice game reading by the home team, but Albis Onis Lobias' Marsh (vid, rec) got right back on the crazy track with a well-executed plan resulting in one player's elimination before he could even reach Classical, setting the pace for the whole game quite clearly. Even though Lads continued fighting and made it as difficult as they could, the preparation time AoL put into this strategy paid off, and they were once again ahead in the Final run.

Sea of Worms RTSL (vid, rec), a proven fun map resulting in interesting gameplay, then saw a rather unexpected progress where AoLs even after switching into triple Zeus couldn't withstand the mixed power of their foes, as Lad's superaggressive approach paid big dividends and basically prevented the powerful Mythical surge from coming into play at all, crippling AoL's game plan completely.

And so the fifth, last game of the evening was needed to decide the holder of the prestigious RTS League Title. Gods have picked Anatolia (vid, rec), a pick you don't see too often in the normal proceedings, and so clans needed to think on their feet how to win the game on this peculiar map. AoL trusted their Norse line-up and yet again went for it right from the start, with successfully stealing enemy TC and applying pressure, but after this small initial victory, Lad's mixed gods started slowly edging forward, gradually gaining ground where their opponent's claim has been before, and AoLs were being forced back to whence they came. The promise of glory eternal coming with the RTSL Gold was as strong as anything though, compelling Albis Onis Lobias to fight as long as they possibly could, with the ultimate hope of invoking the gods' blessings and wrenching this all-important game from their enemies' claws. But when the last of the powerful Ragnaröks was spent and strengths started to dwindle, the inevitable was becoming clear, and that was that the new Champions of RTS League's Age of Mythology: The Titans Clan League, Season 25 are:

And the honoured Finalists:

Bronze Banner Match

The Semifinalists from Tsunami Clan and Brazilian Team were pitted against each other in a fight that promised to bring us some interesting plays in a battle of two former Champions, and on top of that excellent team game players overall. It all started on rather epic Frozen Wastes RTSL where we could've seen some great action and awkward situations for the players to find themselves in, and continued with equally cool Medit that seemed to be going one way, but in the end turned into a heated skirmish tying the match in its first session. Players then reconvened the other day and we saw a very composed performance of our steady Banner holders, resulting in them claiming yet another well deserved trophy to their virtual shelf:

League Cup

This season we had another, and this time pretty strong, chance at a clan claiming the elusive and extremely rare League Double - AbsoLads could've won both the Gold and also the Blood-Red League Cup Banner at the same season. AbsoLads B made their way through tough ReGeneration in the Semifinals (vid, rec) and fielded a pretty strong team for the Finals that could've rivaled any Playoff attendees, but Organization of Natural Uppers had another idea about how things should go, proving that once their rust is shed, they are a strong contender for any of the Banners. After some good efforts and especially a rather crazy second game, they managed to get a hold of the prized badge of honour belonging to the best clan that ended up just outside the borders of Playoffs:

Fair Play Award

The last, but by far not the least important award to be handed out is the Blue Fair Play Banner for the fairest clan of them all - a clan that is the epitome of all the good qualities a competitive team should posses. Stellar scheduling, arriving on time, being easy to play with, typing gg at the end - such are the characteristics that can be applied to the clan deserving the top placement. After all the ratings from all the competing clans have been properly evaluated, the most fun clan to play with has been, for the second time in a row, determined to be:

JSS 8.75
ArF 8.60
TSM 8.50
DoD|C 8.40
ReGen 8.40
DoD 8.25
FROST 8.00
Lad|B 7.75
PK 7.75
ONU 7.20
AoL 7.00
DoD|B 6.75
BrT|B 6.60
Lad 6.60
ONU|B 5.25
BrT 4.25

Well done on keeping being awesome and making RTS League all the more fun to play in, 2k for jesus! :)


All right then, that's all the deserving clans decorated now, and, as usual, all that remains is "just" to congratulate the successful clans and give thanks to all the participants who helped make this season as great as it was - congrats and thanks!

Definitely hoping to see you all in the next season!

AoC Season 38 Accepting Sign-Ups!

posted by Black AdderWednesday, 16 December 2015

The year is almost at its end with the last two weeks of the 2015 calendar, but once we turn over the last leaf, we're not going to see just the new "January" and "2016" designations on the next page, but also one a lot more important than the rest - Season 38 of RTS League's Age of Empires II: The Conquerors Clan League. It's time. It's time again to test your skills and see if Lords of Skulls, the reigning Champions, are still the best clan in the whole of AoC, or if there is someone else better suited to fill that role, to bear that eternal honour. Is maybe your clan the one we're looking for?

No matter if you're aiming for the top spots or you're "just" interested in having the best team game fun around, RTS League is the place to be with its time-proven format ideal for everyone looking to have some competitive entertainment in a well-organised, yet still very friendly environment - RTS League knows no bounds and is open to players of all skill levels and platforms to try their hand at clan wars with meaning that are used to gauge clans' position in the community already since 2001.

Ready to give it a go then and be a part of the battle for the prestigious title of RTS League Champions, the best clan in the whole of Age of Empires II community? Then gather your clan mates and sign up!

--------------------

To take part in Season 38 and have a chance at the fun (and the Banners :) ), your clan will need to fit a few conditions to ensure you would be a positive contribution to the League.

First you will need a Clan Operator - the guy/gal representing you in the competition, scheduling your matches with the opponents and communicating with League staffers on your behalf. This person should be reliable, responsible and available regularly, every day if at all possible. Proper and timely communication is the key here. You can, of course, have more than 1 Clan Operator to cover for each other :)

Then you must have at least 6 active players ready to participate - this is to ensure you are able to complete your matches regularly even if some of your heroes happen to be temporarily unavailable.

Further you need to be familiar with the League rules. Read them carefully. The only slight novelty for this season is the ability to choose the Nations Cup II maps as home maps if both clans agree.

And when you've checked all these points and you're ready to join, then again make sure that your clan meets the criteria listed above and within the rules and simply post the following sign-up form (if you're new and need an account first, follow the instructions up top under the menu and we'll get it done). Returning clans need just to confirm the participation (and re-read the rules, just in case).

Clan Tag:
Clan Name:
Clan Website:
Number of Members:
Clan Operator Nickname and Contact:
Clan Leader Nickname and Contact:
Clan Operator has read the rules and agrees to them:

Please sign your clan up only if you seriously want to take part in the League, do not sign up inactive clans or clans with too few players to actually meaningfully compete. Clans that drop out during the season will be excluded from the next one/s.

Sign-ups will be closed on Friday 1st January, Season 38 will start the following week.

If you have any further questions, feel free to contact our AoC staff members or any other staffers.

Looking forward to having you in the League, and spread the word - the more clans, the more fun for everyone!

AoT Grand Finals and Bronze Match Live This Sunday!

posted by Black AdderSunday, 06 December 2015

It's here! After a great season filled with so many intriguing match-ups and even better performances by not just the expected clans, we have reached the final stage of the RTS League's Age of Mythology: The Titans Clan League, Season 25 - the Grand Finals and Bronze Banner Match!

Only the best of the best in the whole of AoT could've reached the ultimate heights, and so we can be sure we're in for some truly epic games this #AoTSunday, and we're, of course, going to bring you those top quality games live on our twitch.tv/RTSLeague!

So, who are going to see battle for the prestigious RTS League Banners?

Bronze Banner Match

We're going to kick off with the Bronze Banner Match featuring two of the former Champions and highly skilled clans with many respected players, names that everyone in the community knows full well - Tsunami Clan will try to defend their Bronze from the last season they participated in, and Brazilian Team will try to follow up their Gold from the same season (gained under previous name TBL) with another award to their starting set.

TSM's season was full of quality performances, owning their division with just one loss to Deities of Death B and overcoming the reigning Champions 2k for jesus, and in the Playoffs they dispatched their ever-present nemesis Deities of Death A in some great games. They met their betters only in the Semifinals, where Albis Onis Lobias surprised the n2 seed and sent them to fight in the Bronze Banner Match.

BrT, on the other hand, had a tricky group stage, having to play extended match-up against Deities of Death A for the direct Playoff advance, but proved to be clearly better, raising their Banner expectations immensely with overcoming such a powerhouse. In the Quarters they continued with teaching DoD how to play, eliminating the Bs, and only in the Semis did AbsoLads, the n1 seeds, put a stop to their Gold raid, pitting them against their current opponents.

This will be a great match that could easily rival the Grand Finals, featuring players such as:

Atlantis
Fen
PLAYER
Sensuy
Xeninha

for the home side, while the away team boasts:

Leonard0
metall0
Playhrd
Seattle_MC
SuperAfim

Come see them fight live on Sunday after 16:00 GMT/17:00 CET/11:00 EST/8:00 PST on twitch.tv/RTSLeague!

Grand Finals

And right after the Bronze is decided, we'll continue with the pinnacle of this season, the best of the best, the top of the top, the experts of experts, giving it their all to determine the greatest clan of current Age of Mythology, the holders of this season's RTS League Golden Banner. AbsoLads will attempt to repaint their last season's Bronze with the shiniest colour possible, while Albis Onis Lobias are aiming for their first Banner ever, hoping they could make the Cinderella story ring true once again.

Lad are having an awesome season, having lost just once in the group stage to Organization of Natural Uppers, but otherwise they convincingly overcame the other adversaries, including ReGeneration housing the top 1v1 players of today Magic, TheMista and Titou. Quarterfinals saw them defeat the Reigning Champions 2k for jesus, all the more supporting their position as the ones to claim the Gold this season, while in the Semifinals they have yet again shown their strength with skillfully overcoming the very strong Brazilian Team in four games.

Their most prominent trait is excellent teamplay, giving them edge in situations where many would bet against them, proving team chemistry is just as important as individual skills in team games.

Not many thought of AoL as a clan that should fight for the Title, but they grew through the group stage, culminating in convincing win against Deities of Death, sending them into an uncomfortable position of fighting for the Playoffs. Whispers of the shadow in the east side of the bracket grew, getting stronger with their successful Quarterfinal bout against Alliance des Résistants Francophones, finally getting confirmed by their good performance with Tsunami Clan, fully actualising their formidable presence.

The most curious thing about them is their Norse-heavy line-up, which should, by most everyone's take on the current meta, be insta-losses in most cases, but they are time and again proving such assumptions wrong through their skill and incessant raiding.

The progress of both those clans this season is a definite promise for highly entertaining gameplay, and it will be provided by players the likes of:

Aurelien
Ayah (Azkeel)
IKillUDie
JohnnyWalker
NyanRacingCat

on the one team, while the other hosts:

Berserker
Iron_maiden
Puma
RecoN
Snak3_H3ad

Clans and players looking to make history for themselves, looking to etch their names into the RTS League Banners of the highest quality, looking to prove who gets to be called the best clan in the whole of AoT community. They will take up arms soon after the Bronze is decided, so don't go anywhere after that match, with the preliminary scheduled time for the Grand Finals being around Sunday 19-20:00 GMT/20-21:00 CET/14-15:00 EST/11-12:00 PST on twitch.tv/RTSLeague.

Format for both of the matches will be Best of 5, with two preset maps, looking like this: 1. Frozen Wastes RTSL, 2. Map 1 loser's home map, 3. Map 1 winner's home map, 4. Sea of Worms RTSL (Conquest), 5. Random.

Should be an evening-full of the best Age of Mythology entertainment you can find, finalising the great experience RTS League has been offering for the whole duration of this season - now it's up to you to choose your favourites and cheer them on to the win and the highly coveted Banners! Who is your pick? Let us know in the comments and on our community channels:

As always, the Postseason wouldn't be complete without the unique competition for teams not advancing into the Playoffs, but since we're still waiting for the second Play-In match to be finished, we cannot kick League Cup off just yet. At any rate though, these teams will have a great chance at redemption and claiming the sole Blood-Red Banner:

BrT|B, DoD|C, FROST, Lad|B, ONU, PK

We'll definitely let you know when League Cup begins so that you can follow your chosen team's progress as well.

Now, with all the important stuff said and posted, there's one last thing left to do - wish all the clans gl&hf, and may the skill be with you!

Technical notes

Quarterfinals are slated for the week 9-15th November, but due to the need to still play the second Play-In, we are prepared to prolong the first round of Playoffs if necessary. At the same time, already set Quarterfinal matches can be played this upcoming weekend if it suits both clans.

Best AoC Clan? Lords of Skulls, Winners of RTS League Season 37

posted by Black AdderSaturday, 24 October 2015

A few weeks ago, a great and in some ways surprising season of RTS League's Age of Empires II: The Conquerors Clan League has finished, seeing the 2-season reign of CZ Clan ended by Lords of Skulls, a clan that has rarely been noticed or thought of as being favourites - until now. How did they manage to clinch the Golden Banner belonging to the best clan in the whole of AoC? How did they overcome all their opposition? Read on and find out what it takes to become the best of the best and rule them all in a world full of Conquerors...

The season itself began as one of great expectations, because as RTSL's prestige constantly grows, more and more top quality clans and players hunger to taste the sweet nectar of victory and recognition coming with the success in the oldest Age of Empires competition ever. We again saw many top teams sign up, like WolfpacK, Power of Japan, Rulers of Rome, Run Forrest Run, New Chapter, Arg plus multitude of others, and CZ's way to the magical third victory in a row was pretty much assuredly not to be easy, many even predicted not possible at all due to the insane line-ups they had to face.

Group Stage

As fate would have it, both the Finalists-to-be were seeded into the same division, expecting the Czechs as top favourites to come 1st, and LoS fighting for the Playoff placement with other clans the likes of Arg or Klrz, kLu. Both clans' way towards the Postseason seemed pretty easy with Lords suffering just 1 loss to the Argentinians, and defending Champions coming up loss-less up until the crucial last fight of the group stage - mutual battle to decide who goes as n1 seed into the Brackets.

Almost ending in an Administrative Decision, teams finally met on the field of battle in the nick of time, and we got to see a pretty fun set of games ending with a clear score 2:0 (recs). But not for the favourites. Evil tongues could say it was because CZ left their best at home, but with how much was at stake - direct advance into Quarterfinals, but, more importantly, avoiding WolfpacK until Finals - no one could say this was a moment to underestimate, and the Champions sure knew what they were doing. Nonetheless, with the help of some traitorous Paladin, whose name and whole family shall forever be cursed, the first spot deservedly fell to Lords of Skulls, and CZ's first wrinkle on their pristine record had grave consequences for their hopes to claim Gold yet again.

The rest of the divisions went more or less according to expectations, with WolfpacK, by many considered clear favourites for the Title, owning Division 2, and New Chapter coming strong in Division 4, but special mention has to go to Rulers of Rome in Division 3, finishing above strong (and last season Bronze) Run Forrest Run, posing an interesting question - can they follow up with equally intriguing results in the Postseason? With the kind of clans heading for the "Best of" fighting, supported by individual results and performances so far, we knew we were in for something special come Playoffs.

Playoffs

The answer to the question posed above came soon, when CZ Clan faced the enigmatic Romans in the Quarterfinals and dispatched them 3:0 (recs) with their top line-up, clearly showing the strength of the RTS League Champions clad in Gold. Similar brandishing of weapons happened in the LoS-Arg encounter (recs) as well though, and we were getting clear signs something is up - the mostly Brazilian clan means business, definitely confirmed by employing TyRanT's finest, RiuT (aka SAFADAO), who wanted to help his true home clan come out big.

WolfpacK then had similar success (recs) against Tolpoi Kuchaem having season of their lives, and New Chapter had a little revenge fun with RFR (recs) for last season Bronze battle, wrapped up by a rather epic Game 4 (rec). This all resulted in some highly anticipated Semifinal match-ups, promising great games and loads of top quality team game fun in the best format available - 3v3.

WolfpacK vs. CZ (recs) was dubbed the premature Finals, as before the season started, CZ Clan were obvious favourites, having won two times in a row, and WolfpacK's line-up just doesn't allow room for anything else than Gold - and to many, even the Czechs were supposed to be a walkover. Well, they weren't. Also due to some misfortune, but mainly due to serious skill in strategy and tactics set-up before the match itself by their opponents, the Wolves found themselves on the standard end of the Little Red Riding Hood story, and the Czech Hunters found not only her and the granny inside the canines' bellies, but also the shiny key to the Grand Finals themselves.

The other side of the bracket was no less interesting, and with the players both Lords of Skulls and New Chapter were using, this seemed like a Nations Cup rematch (recs) in full strength. Here the fans started to realise the Brazilians (mostly) are kind of the favourites with fielding 2k++ all the time, and were actually expected to trash nC, but boy, were such predictions misguided. All the recent training paid off tremendously for the Germans and they were very clearly reaching for the advance, but proved just a bit short in fully capitalising on RiuT's presence that seemed to have an interesting, yet unexpectedly sour, side effect - common and inescapable mentality that superstrong reinforcement will win the games by itself. Luckily for LoS though, they managed to get things right just in time to clinch their Grand Finals ticket in the last, fifth game, and dream of claiming the highly coveted Golden Banner for themselves stayed alive.

Grand Finals

The last fight of the season was a bit longer in coming due to stacked schedules of the clans, but when the teams finally met, the atmosphere was almost palpable, as there was a whole lot at stake - magical third victory in a row for CZ, premiere Title for LoS, and eternal glory for the winner. Lords of Skulls stuck to their expert game skills, CZ to their expert pre-match tactical preparation. Only one could prevail though, and so the heated clash began, with the challengers racking up Game 1 on Flood (rec) after skillfully conquering the sea, impatiently waiting to face CZ, the Arena Masters, on their favourite home map (rec). The Defending Champions went with their proven, highly effective double sling, but to their surprise, the opponents somehow contained the situation and did not allow for it to get out of hand, stealing a map that should have been CZ's stepping stone to victory. With LoS' home map incoming, the situation was dire for the Champs, needing to win all now, and even though BCC3@Fortress (rec) is similar in appearance to their cozy little piece of battlefield, the progress followed the theme of the evening, eventually, and quite fittingly, seeing the Kings of AoC topple. When all ggs were said and shaking of hands done, a new day has dawned, a day where the proud CZ Clan's Banner flies a little lower, outshined by the Golden Banner of the Champions of RTS League's Age of Empires II: The Conquerors Clan League, Season 37:

Bronze Banner Match

The first Banner to be awarded though was the one that again had a supposedly clear favourite - it was near unthinkable that WolfpacK would leave empty-handed with such quality, but at the same time New Chapter were on a very similar boat, collecting awards with regularity many could envy. With the fairy tale adventure yielding proper lesson, the Wolves looked to rectify their mistakes and make sure Bronze would be theirs, ready to transform into fearsome Werewolves for this match, not having to worry about the fateful Silver Banner at all. But, well, the representatives of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation did not need any silver on their side, as they had plenty of holy water ready to Flood (rec) their enemies with, followed by just enough spikes made of Black Wood (rec) to still the beasts' hearts, finishing them off with a golden sling found at the fabled El Dorado (rec), a weapon even David himself would love to brandish against his nemesis Goliath. Not even the Arabian (rec) mystics could then divine a way to secure victory for the Pack against such huge odds, and so were the chroniclers of old made to turn the leaves of their tomes one last time this season, to start a New Chapter depicting the heroic deeds of:

Count's Analysis of AoT Season 25

posted by Black AdderFriday, 02 October 2015

The new season of RTS League's Age of Mythology: The Titans Clan League has just recently started, and it's already producing spectacular games and inciting speculations everywhere it goes. Will JSS successfully defend the Gold? Will Magic+TheMista with Titou carry BeaSt to the Title? Is DoD ready to retake what is theirs? Leader of the reigning Champions 2k for jesus Count_Von_Count has put his thoughts on paper and you can now see what does he think about the 25th RTSL Season and how will it play out according to his experience and knowledge - read on to glimpse the possible future!

Division 1

Division 1 is in my opinion the toughest division in the League. I think four teams are able to advance: DoD|B, TSM, JSS and PK. Let's take a closer look at the teams and their strengths.

DoD|B: This season DoD decided to equally divide the best players over the A & B teams, resulting in DoD|B becoming a very well-rounded team. I expect them to play with quite aggressive god+map combination. Fox has a very aggressive Isis gameplay and also Shelty is known for his Loki. Furthermore, we have BriefKeese and Jollyman, both decent players who should not be underestimated.

The player to watch: DoD_BriefKeese

JSS: The winners of Season 24 will be participating without TheMista this time around, which is obviously a big loss, as last season he was JSS' key player - both Ert and VonCount had more of a supporting role on the team. The question is: Are they capable of changing their playstyle? Whatever the answer, I still think JSS is the team with the best teamplay around - in contrast to most other clans, they play as one team, not as a sum of separate parts. Smoort, Elmo or Hellenic will be the 3rd players to complete the teams, all three of them being solid 18++ players, but having little experience with big team-tourneys like RTSL.

The player to watch: JSS_Ert

TSM: TSM is a long-time participant and always performed really well. So far they have played Medit as their home map in almost every confrontation. The team is featuring Player, Fen, Sensuy and Atlantis - Player is one the best Zeus-players of modern time, and also Fen is playing rather well lately. Sensuy will probably be the one completing the team. The combination of multiple Zeus' in one team has been proven very successful in RTSL's history, and I expect no different this season.

The player to watch: TSM_Player

PK: PK is another clan that should not be counted out. Kye, 7up and pops play and improved a lot, and I expect them to come up with some crazy strategies. I honestly have no idea what home map they will play, or which gods they will go for - as far as I know, all of them can play multiple civilizations. I am not sure if they have a chance to advance out of this tough division, but they might be able to take some games from the stronger clans.

The player to watch: PK_Kye

I expect that TSM will end up first in the division. They are familiar with playing high-level teamgames, and the gods they like to play fit really well together. JSS is the team I expect to qualify as second. Ert and VonCount are both really experienced teamplayers, and as long as the 3rd player on the team delivers, they should not have a problem qualifying. I expect DoD|B to perform better than PK, they have a great potential to play aggressively, and I don't think PK will be able to deal with that. For the more experienced clans (like TSM and JSS) this will be less of a problem.

Division 2

Group 2 seems to be the easiest group. I think there are three clans which have a chance on qualifying - DoD|A, AoL and BrT.

AoL: I find it really hard to judge this clan. The core players are Iron_Maiden, Recon and Berserker, all of whom have a really aggressive style of playing. I have been watching Berserker's stream lately, and his APM is rather high compared to most other streamers. Also Recon (ex-nilla player) is a player that prefers to win by himself rather than waiting for his opponent to make a mistake. If Iron_maiden can step up, I think AoL should be able to qualify for the play-offs.

Player to watch: AoL_Berserker

BrT: The Brazilian squad is also present this season. Seattle, Giovan, GoldenLion, Playhrd, Ninho and Metallo all know how to play in a team. I expect them to produce a lot of mercenaries and hopefully make J4Jc3 rage-quit during one of their games. I am not sure how much of a chance BrT has in the play-offs - their core-strategies have been rather abusive in the previous seasons and therefore counterable by teams able to play multiple gods. At any rate, I am quite sure they will end top 3 in this division, they have overall a decent team and clear game-plan.

Player to watch: BrT_Playhrd

DoD|A: Without Fox and Titou, DoD|A will be slightly weaker than they were in Season 24. However, Rangers, Spoeft, Hellsravage, Killerboy and Brickhead should have no problem coming first in this group. DoD|A plays as a team, is able to pull of different strategies and features numerous expert-players, and even though Spoeft and Killerboy might be a little rusty, DoD|A should still be the strongest team in this division.

Player to watch: DoD_Spoeft

For obvious reasons I expect DoD|A to finish first in this division, skill-wise they are just a step above the other teams. BrT will most likely end up in the 2nd seat, as I don't think any of the other clans in this group (besides DoD) can take any games from them. Only AoL has a chance, but I'm not sure how Norse players (like Iron_Maiden) can deal with BrT's core-strategy.

Division 3

I expect this group to be really close. There are four different clans competing for the 3 top spots - ArF, Lad, ONU and ReGen.

ArF: The best player on ArF's team is for sure Adhafang - he is a very solid random-god teamplayer. However, I don't think the other players on this team will be able to perform on the required level to advance. But if Grandmonster, BzH and Laior can surprise us, they might have a chance to reach the play-offs.

Player to watch: ArF_Adhafang

Lad: Lad has a really strong team on paper - IkillUdie, NyanCat, Ayah, JohnnyWalker and Aurelien have all been doing quite well on the Voobly ladder. Lad did not do bad last season either, but they could not compete with DoD in the semi-finals, and also LNC turned out to be stronger than them when they faced each other for the 3rd place. It is hard to predict how well they will perform this season, but I would not be surprised if they made it to the semi-finals.

Player to watch: Lad_IkillUdie

ONU: ONU did not participate in the last seasons. Back in 2009, ONU's top-players Piske and Sparx performed really well across several seasons, but can they adapt to the current meta? We'll see, but with Highlander recently joining the ONU-squad, his Set might be a great addition to the team. I predict that ONU will do fine in this group, but I don't think they will play at the same level as ReGen and Lad.

Player to watch: ONU_Highlander

ReGen: Magic and TheMista are without a doubt the two best 1v1 players of today, both have crushed every other top-player multiple times. However, we have not seen them playing that many teamgames, and TheMista has shown a really solo-oriented style last season. Will that fit Magics style as well? Will there be any synergy between the two of them? If so, ReGen will most definitely come first in this group, if not, things might get really interesting in group C.

Player to watch: ReGen_Magic

If TheMista and Magic find a way to play together, I don't think any other clan in this group can stop them. Lad is my number two in this division, they have a lot of sup-topplayers and will therefore come out on top of ONU and ArF. I expect ArF vs ONU to be the candidates for the 3rd seat. It will be a rather close fight.

Gods and Maps

Last season there were two gods who have been played way more often than the rest: Oranos and Zeus. Due to the balance-patch 1.02, I expect the meta to slightly change. The Shockwave is one of the reasons why Oranos used to be very strong - especially vs Greek Oranos was a decent choice, because that one godpower could kill about 3 Centaurs if used correctly. Due to the Shockwave nerf, Oranos is now weaker, especially versus Zeus, and therefore I think we will see less of him this season.

Zeus has also received some nerfs - the Bolt godpower cannot be used on villagers and also the repair speed of the Underworld Passage has been reduced, and on top of that, Centaur-raiding became less effective due to the change on their passive. Even though all 3 changes will affect Zeus' strength in teamgames, I do not think we will see less of him - Zeus is in my opinion the best god in team games, plus the nerfs to Oranos are rather beneficial for Zeus players.

Loki will be one of the gods that will be played more often than last season. I expect most teams to opt for more aggressive strategies compared to last seasons, and Loki will fit this style perfectly. A decent amount of hero Hersirs in a team can be a great addition by itself, as Isis players will have to be more thoughtful with casting A+E when there is a Loki on the opposite team. Also Centaur raiding becomes less effective when facing Loki.

Furthermore, I expect a very small increase of Egyptian picks this season. Egyptians have always been a risky choice since you are not able to help your allies in the early phase of the game, but if a team decides to play a defensive map, the Egyptian gods fit in perfectly.

This season RTSL introduced a few new maps: Blue Lagoon, Frozen Wastes, Painted Desert and Sacred Pond. Using these maps might be a great opportunity for the less experienced clans to catch a strong opponent off guard.

Mediterranean will be one of the maps we will see a lot. Good multi-tasking and water-micro are key factors to play this map successfully, which usually benefits the more experienced players. The new Midgard might also become a popular choice due to the fact that Atlanteans naturally suck at this map. Tundra and Blue Lagoon are maps I expect to be picked by the more aggressively-oriented teams, as both maps are rather open, which is necessary to raid. Marsh has been a very popular map last season, and I still think some teams will play Marsh as their home map, but not as often as last season. Most players are familiar with this map, which makes it harder to execute special strategies.

The Semi-finals

I do not precisely know how the RTSL will format the play-off brackets, but I think the following clans have a good chance of making it into the semi-finals:

ReGen: If TheMis and Magic perform, no one will stop them from hitting the semis!
Lad: Active, diverse and solid. I don't see them winning this season, but I don't count them out either.
TSM: Player, Sensuy and Fen might go straight to the top. It would surprise me if they didn't reach the semis.
DoD|A: Easy group stage and lots of experience. This should be no problem for the grandpas.
DoD|B: Talent and aggression, if they do well in their division, they will do well in the brackets, too.
JSS: Extraordinary teamplay. JSS has proven itself already and surely will again this season.

So, do you think he's right? Has he hit the nail on its head? Or do you think he's wrong and your predictions are entirely different? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
