Group A

Cartel:  Legend, Sica, Shaady, SLG
FrenchPlusOne:  Cruzz, NURIX, TchiK, Zhuh
Muriel Robin:  IIMada, KronosZer, Sunriz, X3rThoS
Team Name:  Lunny, Morguhh, ShabbyDagger, Snakey

Predictions from Sherzy_1 of Europa Halo:

There’s no doubt in my mind that Group A’s top spot belongs to Cartel. The second spot however is a little more tricky. Team Name and FrenchPlusOne will lock horns for their chance at the semi finals and although this will be a tightly contested affair, I believe Team Name will have just a little too much firepower and will progress to the knock out stages.

Group B

Mock-It:  Batchford, Looney, Procisionite, Squashy
No Shields:  HeresToNow, NQOBY, UndyTonza, Sanart
QuestionReality:  Cr0ssMan, Luundy, Qatchy, Beetly
Power:  Jimbo, Mose, Kimbo, Snipedrone

Sherzy_1:

Power will lay claim to the summit of this group with Mock-It no doubt claiming the runners up spot. I don’t believe the other two teams in the group can match these heavyweights.

Now semi finals time.
Power vs Team Name
This has all the ingredients for a great series. potential for a Game 5 if Team Name come out the blocks firing on all cylinders. However, Power have made it to the finals and these players know what’s required to get the job done when it matters most. I predict a 3-1 in favour of Power.
Cartel vs Mock-it
Cartel have been formidable throughout the open cups and have handled Mock-It every time they’ve gone head to head. I think this is a 3-0 Cartel.
The Finals
Cartel vs Power
These teams have gone the distance in two finals. The Frenchmen having won the most recent. Just last week we had late drama as Cartel were staring down the barrel of defeat losing 2-1 in the series and Power only needing five seconds of ball time on Fissure. With the scores at 145-75 Cartel roared back to life playing some flawless Halo to snatch victory from the jaws of despair. With the scores all tied up and revitalized they took the Game 5 Slayer 50-42 to close out and truly legendary comeback. Will the big game players of Power be able to lick their wounds and bounce back when it matters most? You’d be a brave man to bet against this Cartel roster and so I won’t I think Cartel win all the marbles in a thrilling 3-2 series!
