I was talking to Poke and he said something along the lines of, "We will blow the 3peat because that is the kind of team we are".

Never said I wouldn't do predictions though? What makes you think I won't do them soon? o:

Opening Round

Rogue Tronners v. Help! I'm Trapped | 2-0
The two time defending champs are just to much for this open team.


Speeders v. <P)hoenix | 2-0
Pheonix has something to prove being one of the newer ladle teams but i still the the skill of speeders and the work they have been putting in advances them to the Quarters.


uNk v. Crazy Tronners Alpha | 2-1
unK and CT arent nearly as active as they used to be but i have a feeling uNK with the addition of mr and vein they can overcome CT and their crazy tactics.


Crazy Tronners Beta v. MYM | 1-2
I hear from a source that CTb will have a lack of players, i dont think they can overcome mYm without 6, if they had 6 i think it might be a different story.


Revolver v. RoadRagerZ | 2-0
RoadRagerZ is roadrunnerz 2nd team and if they prove to be anything like their masters they will within the next couple ladles become a team to beat! But Revolver will be too much for this newer team!


OOps v. Misfits | 2-1
Oops has been around alot longer than Misfits, not much to say here, but i would love to watch this match.


RoadRunnerZ v. Velocity | 1-2
RoadRunnerZ has alot of teamwork, they always have... But i think they will overlook the newer velocity team and Velocity will come out on top, of course it wont be easy, but what is in life? Velocity has put in alot of work over the last couple weeks and they are looking to prove it to the fort community.

Immortal Dynasty v. Redemption/% | 0-2
Lets be realistic Redemption is too much to handle for ID "version 3"


Quarter Finals

Rogue Tronners v. Speeders | 1-2
I suspect its time for Speeders to get back into the spotlight, they will start by taking down the 2 time defending champs!


uNk v. MYM | 2-1
uNK also has warmed up and is feeling good, these matches will be close but i have a feeling uNk comes out on top with supreme play from slash and potter.


Revolver v. OOps |2-0
OOps had a good run to Quarters, but Revolver is too much for them to handle atm.


Velocity v. Redemption/% | 1-2
Redemption also overlooks velocity and velocity gets an early win, but redemption regains themselves and earns themselves a 2-1 victory, i have a feeling these will be good matches or extremely funny ones.


Semi Finals

Speeders v. uNk |2-1
This is the main event right here, these 2 teams are fighting it out for a chance at another ladle victory, best matches of the tourney! But i still think Speeders pulls it out!


Revolver v. Redemption/% | 2-1
Revolver is certainly looking for a ladle victory seeing as they havent won one in some time! Hard fought matches but Xyron finds some way to live again and wins it for Revolver!


Finals

Speeders v. Revolver | 2-1
Speeders wins again! after a very long time, they have put the effort into it, i have seen them at practicing and i think it pays off! Intense matches and most end 100-98 or some variation close to that!

I hope i did alright these were my first predictions ever, i was kind of bored so, hey... why not :)

Octa Finals

Rogue Tronners vs. Help! I'm Trapped
Not a terrible Open Team for sure, but they were just very unlucky with this matchup.

Rogue Tronners (2) - Help! I'm Trapped (0)

Speeders vs. <P)hoenix
Phoenix is getting better, but they still lack the type of skill Speeders has. This is a very interesting Speeders team that is missing two key players, wonder if <P)hoenix can give them a run for their money if they play their best.

Speeders (2) - <P)hoenix (0)

uNk vs Crazy Tronners Alpha
I would love to say uNk will win, and I think they can. Seen a lot more activity than I'm used to seeing from them and maybe that'll leave a few of them more prepared for this matchup.

uNk (2) - Crazy Tronners Alpha (1)

Crazy Tronners Beta vs. MYM
CTB's team is not bad, but it's not the best and although mym lost a good player in Gaz, they should be able to beat CT's second team with some ease.

Crazy Tronners Beta (0) - MYM (2)

Revolver vs. RoadRagerZ
Revolver lost dread, but still a very sound and fundamental team. Is Durka coming back? It would be nice to see him there. rZ's second team doesn't have quite the skill as their first team does. Maybe their first team could steal a match, but I don't see them being able too.

Revolver (2) - RoadRagerZ (0)

OOps vs. Misfits
Honestly, I have no idea who will win this. I feel Misfits is more likely to show up a full team than OOps, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

OOps (0) - Misfits (2)

RoadRunnerZ vs. Velocity
Seems like this could be a good matchup with some of the players VcL has, but I don't think they can dash rZ's hopes in their return to the ladle scene.

RoadRunnerZ (2) - Velocity (0)

Immortal Dynasty vs. Redemption/%
Unfortunate for ID to get stuck with, probably, the most improved team from last ladle.

Immortal Dynasty (0) - Redemption/% (2)

Quarter Finals

Rogue Tronners vs. Speeders
Said it before, saying it again. This is a weird Speeders lineup. No insa. No FoFo. US server. Looks like it could be a lot of trouble for them for an R team looking to make some more noise.

Rogue Tronners (2) - Speeders (0)

uNk vs. MYM
If uNk can get on the right track, they have a very dangerous team. My only question is if they can get back on it. Would love to see them have success like they did before. I think they will, getting by a MYM team that will be exposed for the weaknesses they have.

uNk (2) - MYM (1)

Revolver vs Misfits
Unfortunate second match for the Misfits, but it was uncontrollable. Revolver benefits here from a relatively weak quarter of the bracket.

Revolver (2) - Misfits (0)

RoadRunnerZ vs. Redemption/%
Everyone knows rZ is getting better. Everyone knows they could make some noise if they can limit their mistakes. The problem is they make too many, and Rd still has a better overall skill set. Could they sneak in a match against a possibly unsuspecting Rd team, much like they did CT? Yeah, but they won't.

RoadRunnerZ (0) - Redemption/% (2)

Semi Finals

Rogue Tronners vs. uNk
Back to EU for R, while uNk has been staying, and getting used to their server. Could be a smooth, or difficult transition; but it's hard to say that it benefits R in this matchup. I dislike saying server plays a part, but if R let's their confidence get the best of them this could be closer than they want it too. Similar to times they played Rd, maybe let one squeak by and maybe let things get too close for their comfort. uNk will hopefully be prepared, and hopefully won't pull it off.

Rogue Tronners (2) - uNk (1)

Revolver vs. Redemption/%
Could be the best matchup of the tournament. The dread vs Revolver might be one of the story lines, but it shouldn't be. These are two really good teams, and even though Revolver did lose dread, they shouldn't lose a beat if their best players come back. Not to mention if Durka makes an appearance like I've heard he might. This could swing either way, and frankly, I would like Revolver's chances if I saw more of them.

Revolver (1) - Redemption/% (2)

Finals

Rogue Tronners vs. Redemption/%
Third time in a row these two teams meet in the finals. Will R come out on top for the third time in a row? Was dread really the missing piece of the puzzle for them? Will vov not have a bad connection? Will EU make the difference for the center battles? Is DGM's wifi good enough to handle aggressiveness? Is Soul's bottle strong enough? Will the change in attacks make the difference? Will Red actually be there? Are there more questions I can ask? Are there too many answers and unknowns to make a solid prediction? Are both teams only getting better? Is R really that good? What will happen? Find out next time on Dragon Ball Z... Which is now.

Rogue Tronners (2) - Redemption/% (1)

ggs, I really hate being slightly biased, but I would like to counteract poke's motivational trick and have this be a fair fight in that regard :] .

Edit: Sorry Elmo, not quite 3AM for me yet but I damn well tried to wait until then for your sake :P .

I wasn't trying to be motivational. I just feel like we have a knack for blowing things, but then again I guess every team does, given that nobody wins ladles more than 50% of the time.

True, except for teams that only showed up once and won, the highest ladle win % is Revolver's, at 33%, followed by Arrow clan's 30%. Yay for stats.

MYM is also 1st in seeds! Seeding in 87% of ladles!
Go sine stats!
