I posted these in the last thread, but that thread doesn't really exist anymore and there has been a pretty substantial change in ompl managers. Figured I'd repost this to rank Chloe. These are my unofficial manager rankings since that's all of the info we have about ompl teams so far.

1. Jrdn
Jrdn did an great job last OMPL, with his team The Head Honchkrows having an incredible 5-1-1 regular season. They entered playoffs the clear frontrunner of the tournament, but got eliminated in a super unfortunate semifinals matchup vs the klinks. Just based on managers, I think jrdn has the best chance of winning this ompl because of his superior OM knowledge, knowing his way around which players to actually draft, and actually being able to play this year (16k jrdn is a gigantic steal LOL). Just based on managers, this is going to be one of my favorite teams to watch this year. If I were a player, I'd want to end up on this team for so many reasons.

2. Funbot28
Funbot and the magearnas' season was cut short last year because of a couple unfortunate ties and losses right before playoffs. Although they started out the season at the top, they quickly fell off as the klinks gained momentum and took their spot. However, being this team's assistant manager last year, the team dynamic was incredible and Funbot's spot as a top OM player and builder means as a player, you get a ton of support. This is the team to be on if you're looking to break into the OM scene. I'm excited to see how funbot does this year, and I have a ton of hope that they'll do better now, especially with funbot able to play (again, 16k is a steal asf).

3. Chloe
At the time I'm writing and posting this, it seems like Chloe did in fact gain a manager role. Chloe has had pretty good success in past OMPLs, almost leading the klinks to victory last year and coming back from a super unfortunate first couple weeks. The team gained enough momentum to bring them into the finals, where they lost in a pretty strange meme filled series vs the jolteons. Chloe is up there with Jrdn as the manager with the most experience in OMPL, and I'd be surprised if the klinks didn't perform well this year.

4. xavgb
Stresh is one of my favorite OM players, and for good reason. As a multi-meta threat, I'm excited to see how he'll hold up managing this year, since I think this is his ompl non-playing debut. Coming off a decent 4-3 season with the mags last year, I think stresh will be one of the best managers to be with because of his knowledge and incredible play across all of the main metagames. On this team, you'll get a ton of support as a player, and you'll almost definitely have a good season (also, 16k xavgb. lol.)

5. OM Room
Last year's tyrantrums, lead by Drampa and OM, had a decent tie-filled season that ended in a playoff loss vs Ransei's jolteons. OM just barely sits below the top half of managers, but don't count him out. He's a great player and a great guy to be around, so I expect this team's morale to be pretty high no matter how their season goes. I can definitely see an OM-lead team going all the way, but he might struggle a bit vs the top 3. As for a 16k manager price? It depends. I'd personally value OM a little under that, but I wouldn't call his decision to buy himself heinous.

6. chazm
I think chazm is a good manager, but he definitely falls short in some aspects and that puts him pretty far below the "top 3" managers above. He had an incredible season last year and he was at the top of the mix and mega field, however, I think he struggles when trying to support non-mnm players (and he should only be buying non-mnm players, 16k is underpay for chazm and I'm excited to see what he brings to mnm this year). I have no doubt that this is a team to watch out for this year as I trust chazm's drafting skills, but only time will tell.

7. Catalystic
I don't know much about cata other than his near-ghosting ban (go zyg and 1k here). He didn't have a great season on the klinks krows last year, and he ended up going 1-5 vs a good mnm and a mediocre stab field. His only victory last year comes from a mnm match vs non-om player tony, which let's face it, isn't a great feat. I don't think cata will be a bad manager, but I don't think he'll lead his team to anything particularly stellar, but that all depends on his draft plan.

8. SBPC
I don't really know this guy. At all. From his signup post, I can assume that he'll be pretty good NFE support, but honestly how much support does that metagame need, there's like 8 viable mons lol. I'm assuming he'll be decent at NFE because he's a roommod (and he'll probably snatch up all of the good NFE players because nobody really knows who's good at that tier), but I really can't say anything for sure. I don't trust his ability to support players of the big 4 OMs. Will he buy himself? Who knows. If I was drafting, would definitely spend less than 16k on my NFE budget since it doesn't seem like you really need anything special to play it, and I'm sure he could snag some better NFE players for way less than 16k because they're all relatively unheard of in the OM comunity.

Now, let's see who didn't get picked as a manager.

The big ones: Mamp, Ham, Mark K, willdbeast
Mamp would definitely run a fun team. He did decently well last ompl coming in with a 4-3 record, but I think this could've been way better. I'm disappointed I won't be able to see him managing, but we'll see how he does playing if he decides to pick up gen 8.
Ham is a super solid player and I'd trust him as a manager. Not sure how his team would do, but I could definitely see a team lead by him getting to playoffs.
Mark had a very unfortunate season as a manager last year, tying with TI and the blisseys for last. Unfortunately he won't be managing again this year, but I definitely think he learned some valuable managing lessons, and he'd do a way better job this time around.
willdbeast got robbed. free the new era bedroom blisseys

ompl mock 1.png



getting myself for 4k is a steal.
Getting the coveted I want atago to sit on me for a measly 9k was worth (suck it Andyboy :psysly: )

I dont know nfe cast though but I heard that Marjane plays well but just needs teams and luckily have two other nfe players
Bh is held well with anaconja, abriel and champ leon.
mnm as well with fd and multi
camo is admittedly weak with only myself and vig
aaa is almost non existent though as i am unsure of anaconja's "any" and there is only ye olde vig
 
Ok, this post is going to be very hard to do without offending Chloe. Not totally sure if that's how you tag a user but will find out once posted.

I feel like Chloe shouldn’t be TL of Mix And Mega. I have barely ever actually seen her play the meta, and when she does, I’ve only seen her beaten (not counting ladder battles). There are much better players, who are both more active and more helpful (thank you stresh), and who actually respond to PMs. Chloe has ignored me all but once when I’ve tried to PM her.
stresh is very helpful when he isn’t afk, as I was surprised to find out when I asked him to help me build. The only one who I think wouldn’t do a better job is ChazmicSupanova (sorry) as he is deliberately unhelpful, but even he is active a fair bit. Sorry if I’ve offended anyone, but I think Chloe should be replaced for QT or stresh.
