As the regular season ends, I want to thank everyone for a successful first season of the Selfless Hero League. When we started this, we had hopes that it would be fun and competitive and I have to say that Season 1 has been even better than I had hoped. For that I thank all of our players, captains, streamers, board members, and data reporters for their efforts in making this a success. Without you guys, Season 1 would not have been nearly as fun as it was.
We saw a lot of different storylines this season. The 3-man rosters made every week very competitive and one week you could be on top of the rankings and at the bottom the next if you weren’t careful. I’ve played in THL since Season 2 and SHL Season 1 ranks up there as far as competition that I’ve seen.
With that I present the final power rankings for Season 1.
1. XplosiveSheep (6-1, 79 Points)
Xplosive Sheep come in at number 1 for the season. They went 6-1 on and finished with a league high 79 points. They end the season on a 3 week win streak and look to avenge their only loss on the season in the Semi-Finals against Enthalpy.
2. Defias Henchmen (4-3, 73 Points)
Defias come out of a close race in Gold to take home the top spot in the Gold division heading into the playoffs. They finished with 73 points and are also riding a 3 week win streak. This week they face off against Kawasaki Ninjas Rule in a rematch from Week 1 that they won 10-7.
3. Kawasaki Ninjas Rule (4-3, 70 Points)
Kawasaki Ninjas Rule narrowly edged out xG for the last playoff spot in Purple by 1 point. They finished the season strongly, winning 3 of their last 4. This week they look to avenge a loss in Week 1 when they play the Defias Henchmen in the semi-finals.
4. Enthalpy (3-4, 70 Points)
Enthalpy is another team that won a close race into the playoffs. It literally came down to the last match in that series deciding it, with TheAnarchist defeating Mainge 3-1 to earn a spot in the playoffs. This week they look to get their second win over our top seed, XplosiveSheep.
5. xG (4-3, 69 Points)
The first team out of the playoffs was xG. They had a great season but ended up missing the playoffs by 1 point to Kawasaki Ninjas Rule. Season 2 should hold good things for captain DexterHS and his team.
6. Pocahontas In Space (4-3, 66 Points)
The very popular PIS narrowly missed out on the playoffs. They won against Enthalpy but Enthalpy were able to score enough points in the loss to secure the playoff spot over PIS. PIS had a successful season, going 4-3 and Season 2 should see big things for them.
7. Silent Storms (3-4, 57 Points)
The Silent Storms finally fell to victim to their name. They lost their final 3 weeks to come in last in Purple and fall short of a playoff bid. They enter the offseason looking to come back in Season 2 with some renewed focus.
8. The Old God Squad (0-7, 23 Points)
Season 1 was rough for the Old God Squad. They went 0-7 and had a few weeks where they pushed their opponents to some game 5s in their matches, but unfortunately weren’t able to come up with the wins in any of them.
