Speedhax beating tx AND pL is a little iffy, especially if their best guys show

Still, I'm feeling like sp and mym would eliminate whoever got into the semis, so I agree with the final

Opening Round:

Speeders vs. Swift (0-2): concord, titan, koi.. oh my! and we all know this sp team is just led by insa and fofy.

Crazy Tronners Alpha vs. Open Team (2-0): Hax! We dont win!

Immortal Dynasty vs. Pure Luck (1-2): It is good to see ID back in the fortress game.. unfortunatly Pure luck is just the higher caliber clan.. and then.. you know.. theres syllabear.

Team.uNk vs. Crazy Tronners Beta (1-2): Elmo leading a ladle team.. that was almost as funny as Tu: dying

United Noobs of Armagetron vs. Team Elite (2-0): Sorry team elite but uNa finally has some great power within them.

Imagineers vs. RoadRunnerZ (2-0): well cody is on the team and he can basically win alone against this team.

\\MeetyourMaker vs. MeetYourMaker// (2-0): liz forgot to hook up with the randomizer this time.

Twi¦×¦ted ¦×¦ats vs. Pure Luck (2-1): Deso went into troll mode and made Koala RQ

Imagineers vs. \\MeetYourMaker (2-0): please dont let me down cody.

Semi Finals:

Crazy Tronners Alpha vs. Twi¦×¦ted ¦×¦ats (2-0): Tx left the last round due to inactivity.. wd raph.

I've never really understood why people so blindly pick their own clan/team to win it. It's like Titan believing in God.

Also, those aren't actual people on Cody's team, just fake names so that his team can't be d/q'd, haha!

That was in poor taste & I don't appreciate you making fun of my teammate. You're an idiot if you really believe what you just said.

I prefer self, well team, confidence over self doubt.

I like to think of it as "We can win this guys!" instead of thinking "ya, we can't win gg".

And besides, the last time I had Speeders v. mYm in finals, I was right, mYm won.

And yea, I don't think J Dawgs predictions are anywhere close but hey, whadoyano, anything can happen.

Yeah I wasn't really referring to your predictions spin.

Me too, but I prefer even more the middle ground called being realistic. Actually, the best combo in my opinion is being technically realistic with your words, yet optimistic and/or confident with your tone. Example: "We can do this you guys!" Can = best loophole word. Doesn't mean we will, but it means there's a chance (and there's always a chance, no matter how thin). If somebody asked me if I believed we would "do this" after I said that, I'd answer truthfully whether we would or not, and if not, then the optimism could be transferred into a statement like "Nope, but let's give it a shot anyway!"

</rant>

Anyway, what I'm trying to say I guess is that you don't need to lie to yourself about what you honestly believe for the sake of confidence. There are other, much purer sources of it.

Because I truthfully believe my can win. I'm not lying to myself. We've done it twice in the last 4 ladles, what makes you think we can't do it again?
