The regular season for SHL Season 2 has ended. With it we begin the playoffs to crown our second champion and see who’s flag will fly. Before we get to that though, let’s look at the final Power Rankings for SHL Season 2.
1. Pocahontas In Space (7-0, 134 Points)
PIS was nothing short of dominant in the regular season. They went perfect on the season and had the most points of any team in THL or SHL this season. Week 7 they won 4 out of 5 matches against Defias Henchmen. This week they take on The Dog House in the Semi-Finals of the playoffs.
2. Kawasaki Ninjas Rule (5-2, 116 Points)
KNR got to the top of the Purple division and never looked back. Week 7 they won over XplosiveSheep to get their second win in a row as they head into the playoffs. They face Team Xnergy in the Semi-Finals.
3. Team Xnergy (4-3, 103 Points)
Team Xnergy had a close race going into the end of the season for the last playoff spot in Purple. Sweeping Lorewalker Nachos helped them secure a playoff spot. This week they face the regular season champion of the Purple division, Kawasaki Ninjas Rule.
4. The Dog House (3-4, 89 Points)
The Dog House made the playoffs in one of the closest tiebreakers that I’ve seen in my time with THL and SHL. The Dog House tied with Defias Henchmen at 89 points each so we then went to the tiebreaker of their head to head matchup from this season. The Dog House won by 1 point, despite losing 3 of the 5 matches. They look to carry their momentum from their Week 7 victory over Team Black Lotus as they take on PIS.
5. XplosiveSheep (3-4, 88 Points)
Our Season 1 champions struggled early on in the season and then looked to have found their stride as they won 3 straight. But losing in the last 2 weeks put them out of the playoff race and ended their title defense early.
6. Defias Henchmen (2-5, 89 Points)
Defias narrowly missed the playoffs in a very close race with The Dog House. They had some solid wins over the course of the season but lost their last 3 weeks to end their season.
7. Team Black Lotus (2-5, 72 Points)
Team Black Lotus always seemed to be on the competitive and looked to have started putting it together early on. However a midseason slide of 3 loses in a row put them out of reach of the playoffs and made it very unlikely that they had a chance at a playoff seed going into Week 7.
8. Lorewalker Nachos (2-5, 72 Points)
Lorewalker Nachos was a team that looked to be competitive early on as they were in the hunt for a playoff spot after the inter-divisional part of the season. However, a 4 week losing streak helped to put them out of the playoffs and end their rookie season.
