    The race for second is on. It could not be closer between the 5 teams clumped near the top of the standings, behind the dominant Asia. This round will be vital in determining who can claim second! And let's not forget individual honours :) The World Cup storms on...

    After four rounds, here are the standings, with NO team having more than one battler alive! Quite a balanced final 6.

    Standings

    Notes:
    -Rules are located here.
    -A win in this round will be worth one* point, as outlined in the Formatpage.
    -Pairings were made randomly

    *I gave my reasoning for this in the last thread for those confused

    Here are your semi final matchups!

    FiveKRunner vs Taylor
    GG vs Shiv
    omni vs Fade_Away

    Deadline to complete battles is Saturday, May 31, 2008, which gives you guys PLENTY of time to get these important battles done! Good luck to all of you.

    Post predictions and smack-talk in this thread, and FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY!!!!

    PPS: Fuck I'm a better battler than Shiv what is going on :(

    FiveKRunner vs Taylor - I am 1-1 in Tournament matches with both of these players if I remember correctly, and FiveK seemed the most impressive out of those matches, but Taylor should not be underestimated!
    GG vs Shiv - I haven't seen Shiv battle as far as I know. GG plays quite well, and although I won't reveal his playing style it is very effective!
    omni vs Fade_Away - Both of these two are great but I think Fade will take this!

    Wait, Shiv is actually good at pokemon? I am not even trying to be rude/mean/sarcastic, I had no idea that he played seriously and/or cared at all.
