    Two teams eliminated, ten remain. Who will take home the honour of being World Cup champs? Let's find out.

    The standings after two rounds:

    Standings

    Asia is leading the pack but metro is not far back, and several other teams still have a shot (even canada maybe!!) It will be fun to watch down the stretch, that's for sure!


    Round Three format changes:
    -A victory in this round will be worth 2 points, as outlined on the format page
    -Pairings were created randomly


    And now, *drumroll* the round three pairings :)

    Round Three Pairings

    Earthworm vs Lockon
    Taylor vs MoP
    husk vs Phuquoph
    Thunderhorse vs [kd8]otome
    batpig vs Shiv
    Sonuis vs omni
    Antique Roadshow vs GG
    aldaron vs FiveKRunner
    Fade_Away vs Brawley
    Loki vs Mysterious Stallion
    Obi vs DD.
    Jirachi268 vs Jackal


    The deadline to complete battles this round will be Sunday, April 27, 2008. You guys did well last round so I expect no problems, but just in case there are contact Jackal or Shiv!

    Post predictions, smack talk, etc. As always check the site for all updates...and most of all FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY!!

    PS: Canada is winning this tournament

    Earthworm vs Lockon- Metro took a huge hit last round, but look for us to rise above the adversity!!!

    Taylor vs MoP- good match...MoP probably cheats to win (like in the riddle)

    husk vs Phuquoph- easily the highlight match...I say since Phuquoph started slaying the Asians...he might as well keep doing it ;D

    Thunderhorse vs [kd8]otome- no team doorman!!! still, IPL's awesome, lol

    batpig vs salaspectrum- this is batpig's tournament to lose (to me of course)

    Sonuis vs omni- tough call, going with the guy who raped me in ST4

    Antique Roadshow vs GG- I think I've voted against GG everytime...how does that makes you feel, AR?

    aldaron vs FiveKRunner- yea bad luck man so that I can win

    Fade_Away vs Brawley- like the easiest 6-0 to call here

    Loki vs Mysterious Stallion- MS is my very good friend but Loki...is Loki...

    Obi vs DD.- Who is Obi?

    Jirachi268 vs Jackal- I can't believe I'm voting for a Canadian...

    Jackal, you spelled honor wrong. It's okay, I know that you're not retarded, just Canadian.

    I was really hoping that LonelyNess would advance so that we'd have 4 players in this round, 2nd most out of all the teams. I still think that Central has a nice shot at climbing up the ranks in this thing, depending on how many of us make it through.

    Earthworm vs Lockon - EW has hit good form as of late
    Taylor vs MoP - Extremely hard to pick. Chose MoP based on rep. EDIT: Good work Taylor :)
    husk vs Phuquoph - tough choice, but the way Phuquoph won last round is hard to go past.
    Thunderhorse vs [kd8]otome
    batpig vs salaspectrum
    Sonuis vs omni - never seen either battle, so I'm pretty much picking blind.
    Antique Roadshow vs GG - fuck yeah Oceania :)
    aldaron vs FiveKRunner - Another hard one, but I'm picking Aldaron.
    Fade_Away vs Brawley - Very unpredictable battler, and I have faith that he can pull this one.
    Loki vs Mysterious Stallion - gl dude
    Obi vs DD. - don't know who DD is
    Jirachi268 vs Jackal - everyone is picking Jackal, but Jirachi has been fucking everyone up as of late so I'm gonna go the upset here.

    Gl to everyone.

    Earthworm vs Lockon - One of the highlight battles of the round. Earthworm is good and a very known battler, but Lockon is rising through thr ranks very quickly
    Taylor vs MoP - sorry Taylor, but I gotta give this one to MoP
    husk vs Phuquoph - Boy this is tough. I've battled both, but I have a lot more experience agaisnt husk, so eh. Another highlight match imo.
    Thunderhorse vs [kd8]otome - Yeah
    batpig vs salaspectrum - Never seen salaspectrum, but after watching batpig tear shit up, he gets my prediction again
    Sonuis vs omni - Don't know Sonuis
    Antique Roadshow vs GG - Another good match. GG swept our division though, so I'm going with him
    aldaron vs FiveKRunner - Both good but aldaron wins. Should be a good battle to watch
    Fade_Away vs Brawley - Hey, everyone underestimates Brawley. He's made it this far, may as well go further
    Loki vs Mysterious Stallion - Another highlight match. Don't really know about this one, but I like Loki's name better.
    Obi vs DD. - Pretty much exactly what Gouki said
    Jirachi268 vs Jackal - I don't know either, but I've heard Jackal is good
