The season is in full swing, which means that we have enough data to start the PPR. This PPR will be renamed “PPR by the Numbers”. It’s interesting to see another PPR and you’ll notice a lot of the same faces on both lists.
With this list, it’s based on three criteria; series won, game win percentage, and opponent win percentage. Series won is how many series you’ve won. For this first PPR, everyone on it is undefeated and are 3-0. Game win percentage is how many games you’ve won compared to how many games you’ve played overall. Opponent win percentage is how many series your opponents have won compared to how many they’ve played overall.
Season 5 has been very fun so far. We saw several new teams and new faces come into the league. Add to that the conference realignment, and it’s been a season full of surprises so far. We’re only 3 weeks into the season, and with another 6 to go I have no idea how this season is going to end. All I know is that I want to watch it happen to see who’s flag will fly when all is said and done. With all that said, let’s start the list at number 10.
10. Jingbudda (3-0, 9-5)
Jingbudda has been in the league for a long time and is off to a great start in Season 5. He’s gotten victories over JesusC, Tranid0r, and Eridan. This week he faces another tough challenge in Twizz.
9. Aroy (3-0, 9-4)
The Season 4 MVP Runner Up is picking right up where he left off last season. He’s gotten a 3-0 over Vendi and wins over ArthurRhodes and Samoo. This week he faces off against newcomer to the league, BlueSpartan.
8. ArcaneTHL (3-0, 9-4)
My pick for most improved so far would be ArcaneTHL. He’s off to his best start in his THL career. This season he’s gotten wins over SwankyTiger, THLeumer, and Force of Will. This week he begins his captainship of Initium Novum and also his biggest test of the season, JesusC.
7. Markshire (3-0, 9-4)
The Season 2 MVP Runner Up is off to a hot start. He’s beaten Fenom, RidiculousHat, and RayC591. This week he faces off against HectorHowl.
6. Craeon (3-0, 9-3)
Craeon found a new home with Entropy and has found success to go with the new team. So far this season he’s gotten victories over Jedininja, Kuthroat, and CaptainMurdoc. This week he faces another big challenge in veteran AlecGWPodcast.
5. MeMyselfandI (3-0, 9-3)
Newcomer MeMyselfandI has taken to THL really well. He’s gotten victories over Zab, DirestBear, and Twizz. This week he takes on PumbaasBFF.
4. Sunshine (3-0, 9-2)
Sunshine is having a great start to the season. Two sweeps on the season, over TheAvatar and DocMcButt and a 3-2 victory over SeniorSaxon. This week he takes on another person who’s off to a good start, Krakshot.
3. MVParker (3-0, 9-2)
Fresh off of a championship run with one of (if not the) best teams in THL history, MVParker hasn’t missed a beat in the beginning of his captainship of Soupreme. He’s gotten 3-0 victories over CaptanMurdoc and AlecGWPodcast and a 3-2 victory over Ridiculous. This week he faces off against Tzeriel.
2. Dlineman (3-0, 9-1)
Dlineman is dominating with Entropy. He’s only dropped 1 game this season in Week 1 and hasn’t dropped a single game since then. He’s gotten victories over B0rck, JoshSampson, and Brunson. This week he faces DrewbixQube.
1. SmokedSalmon (3-0, 9-1)
Coming in at number 1 is the captain of Entropy, SmokedSalmon. Like his 4 seed, Salmon has only dropped 1 game this season. He was undefeated through the first two weeks, picking up wins over Chiggmo and Thorsmash before finally dropping one game to Cassity14 this past week in his 3-1 win. This week SmokedSalmon looks to stay on top as he faces off against Hupnar.Honorable Mention: Jaybie (3-0, 9-5)
