Lord Pein's Ladle 36 Predictions

Post by Lord Pein »

Opening Round
Wild West vs Death by Distraction

DBD will most likely have an extremely difficult time just winning more than a few rounds. WW has much more skill and experience in fortress (DBD will have a hard time just trying to kill Punish)

Result: Ww 2 - dbd 0

SPD vs Inglorious Bastards

SPD has some good players, but IB is far more organized.

Result: IB 2 - SPD 0

Dark Syndicate vs Open Team

The performance of the Open Team is random and completely based on who shows up. I assume the factor of organization will be their doom.

Result: DS 2 - OT 0

Vecolity vs Plus+

I have heard that Accem is a decent defender, and the rest of the team is decent for the most part; however I have also heard that Accem and Zat have had things come up and will not be able to make it. Even if Vecolity has their full team, a full Plus team will eventually emerge victorious.

Result: ++ 2 - Vecolity 0

Immortal Dynasty vs Twixted Xats

TX has an unnecessarily strong attack.

Id will lose.

Result: Tx 2 - ID 0

Tronners Unlimited vs Unknown

UNK has some pretty legit players.
UNK is probably going to be a bit more organized than last ladle.
UNK has more than just a legit defense.

TU will be all over the place. UNK won't be.

Result: UNK 2 - Tu 0

tseW dliW vs Crazy Tronners

WW backwards is going to be somewhat disorganized.
emphasis will be playing and he is one of my favorite CT members.
Theroze ruined casual friday for everyone.
CT is much more skilled and organized.
WW backwards will lose.

Result: CT 2 - WW backwards 0

PlzResUs vs Speeders

Pru practices more than any other team on the challenge board.
Pru is the most improved ladle team in the past year.
Pru is confident (or at least Word is).
but...
Ins has an overwhelmingly annoying defense.
FoFo is my favorite SP member (who unfortunately will not be playing).
Ins has an overwhelmingly annoying defense.
Viper is my 2nd favorite SP member.
Ins has an overwhelmingly annoying defense.
Ins is my 3rd favorite SP member.
Ins has an overwhelmingly annoying defense.
Flex is legit (may be underestimating him, but I never see him play outside of G5's pro (which doesn't always reflect players full potential)).
Ins has an overwhelmingly annoying defense.

Sorry Pru, but like every other team that will be competing against SP, you lose.

Result: Speeders 2 - PRU 0

Quarter Finals

Wild West vs Inglorious Bastards

This could go either way; but I think IB is more well rounded, and experienced.

Result: IB 2 - WW 1
OR
IB 2 - WW 0

Dark Syndicate vs Plus+

If everyone shows up on both teams, it could be an interesting match.

Liz really does not want to lose to DS.
Bellum is legit.
Spin and Liz work quite well together.

Result: DS 1 - Plus+ 2
OR
DS 0 - Plus+ 2

Twixted Xats vs Unknown

Assuming TX will have more than 2 members of their team show up...

TX will overwhelm the UNK defense with their strong attack.
UNK will spend most of their time back at their own circle trying to deal with Liza, Eckz, and Subzero.
UNK may get a few zone snipes from Deso disconnecting (if he is defending).
Liza is my favorite TX member.
Hoax is my second favorite TX member.
Goody is my third favorite TX member.
Nuby is my fourth favorite TX member.
Subzero is my fifth favorite TX member.

Result: Tx 2 - UNK 0

Crazy Tronners vs Speeders

Ins has an overwhelmingly annoying defense.
BUT
CT is not going to go down with out a fight.
BUT
Ins has an overwhelmingly annoying defense.
AND
Viper is playing (so I've heard).

Result: CT 1 - Speeders 2

Semi Finals

Inglorious Bastards vs Plus+

IB is a very organized team IMO and will remain calm through the entire ladle. Plus+ will make a few costly mistakes and IB will show no sympathy.
Hi Tits!

Result: IB 2 - Plus+ 0

SP vs Twixted Xats

Ins has an overwhelmingly annoying defense.
TX (I assume) has an unreliable defense (due to connection issues).
I am getting tired of typing.

Result: SP 2 - Tx 0

FINALS

Ins has an overwhelmingly annoying defense.
Free Kill has an annoying defense.
Both teams are legit (obviously).
BUT
Since FoFo is in SP, and I am tired of typing...

Result: SP 2 - IB 1

Can you all please stop with this annoying spam. The only ladle predictions people care about is Concords and Durka's.

Edit: or just make one annoyingly long paged ladle prediction page.

That was funny. Not the predictions, but the way you expressed them.

the only reason why people care more about durka's predictions is cause he seems to have luck guessing, and he was the first one trying... now tthat everyone tries it's getting annoying, indeed.



i miss concord's so much :(

I don't think this really qualifies as spam. It was slightly entertaining too. But yeah, I was also thinking maybe these threads could be combined later as "Ladle 36 Predictions".

Their not-so-secret weapon is their loud talk before every ladle :D It works about 0% of the time.
