    Welcome to the finals of SPL 4!

    A couple of banned players and a manager or two later with some drama along the way, but we finally made it! Congratulations to the Tigers and Wolfpack for making it this far, you've both earned it.

    I have asked management from both the Wolfpack and the Tigers what it feels like to be in the finals and the road they had to travel to reach this point.

    Starting the season, I was certainly more confident in my team than the rest of the league was! We had a good core group of users going into the draft and ended up drafting most of the targets we had lined up in our plans. The players all really did a good job of coming together and making #los_tigres a fun place to be, while helping out in their respective tiers too. I was incredibly proud of how quickly everyone started acting like a team, something that continued throughout the season. Last week was incredible to participate in and the entire management team is enthralled with how the team has performed, no matter how this finals match-up turns out. Due to tennis being a nigger, we did have to rely on two honorary tigers, ium and oglemi, to pick up his slack and I would like to ask that his trophy, provided we win, is given to them instead. I'd also like to thank our lord and savior, DEER GOD, for bringing us to the highest stage team Pokemon has to offer. #drunkfordunk #slammedforsir ~ little gk

    Before the season started, I offered to play RU, but Limitless chose me as an assman instead. We came up with a plan for a really solid roster, but it obviously did not go the way we planned! Weeks 1-3 were really rough, going into each week having to take an autoloss or two. Things only got worse when Limitless was kicked off the team and jason was banned, since we only had 2 inactive substitutes. The team was pretty much broken at this point, with little hope for success. When I became manager I knew that there was still hope because we still had many strong players remaining, and I wanted them to have a fun rest of the season. Week 4 changed a bit when we got champion DarkLoïc, though everyone knew we still couldn't keep going the way we were. Thankfully, midseason came and we picked up some great players who boosted the team up to par with the rest. At that point we had to put in an extreme amount of effort, since we'd been at an unimaginable disadvantage throughout the entire tournament. Despite what anyone says, I still feel that the odds were against us even after midseason. However, our team pushed through, and I'm really proud of every single one of our players for trying their best and not complaining about luck or trash talking, with the exception of one... shoutout to big MARTH>SMOGON. Everyone knew we had to go all out after the unfortunate tie in week 7. I asked for a 12-0 the next week in order to prove everyone's determination, and we pretty much got it! Every win this season counted, and I'm really proud of our team for persevering and fighting for the win. I'm ecstatic that we're in the finals of the tournament, many of our players for the second time in a row. I don't really know what else to say besides how proud I am of everyone who is on the wolfpack, and what a great time it was. Maybe we'll finally get the chance to spam AWOO next week :p. Finally, good luck and have fun to our opponents! No matter what happens, it's been a very exciting and intense season and I hope everyone on our team had fun! AWOO ~ DittoCrow

    I think if every person on Smogon were polled at the beginning of this season and asked which two teams they thought would be in the finals, not a single person would have guessed these two. Not trying to insult either team here. In fact, I'm impressed with both teams' performances. May the best team win!
