Nooooooooo now everyone is going to know we could've used a real bannerNow, for the long awaited, highly anticipated, over sophisticated, well rated, forever belated... PREDICTS! For the fun final full set of matches!
Aaand... it's green vs blue yet again. Here we go:
Lavender Laprses (3) vs Turffield Turtwigs (7) (Spaced out cause these are very wordy)
Ubers: velvet vs Blimax - They may have the same record, but I'm pretty confident with who wins here. Blimax definitely strikes me as the better ubers player, and better player overall based on his blt performances. Unless velv plays to the blimaximum and blim plays to the bliminimum, blimax shouldn't have too much trouble winning here.
OU: Not Miyan vs myjava - The better player here can be shown only through records. Myjava has had a solid 5-2 performance so far, with some nice wins, while not miyan is 3-4 with the 3 wins he has not looking so great. I believe myjava is an actual ou main unlike miyan, so myjava should be the better ou player here. In conclusion, the winner will be not miyan- erm... not not miyan? Screw it, your personal java wins.
OU: henguinie vs Harshal_08 - I think this is a similar case to the one above, where the record can do the talking. Harshal has performed beyond everyone's expectations over the course of the tour, beating several impressive opponents convincingly and earning himself a record of 6-2. While drizz is a good player, he's had an abysmal 2-4 run. Comparing their 2 overall performances, I think bdlol is in for a harsh loss to harshal.
UU: queso vs 100%GXE - Both of these guys had a rough start to blt, and both came back nicely from losing first week to having now positive records. Although, idt there's anyone in this whole tour who has come back stronger than gxe has, losing the first week and never losing since. He was really out for blood after that. Queso also came back nicely after losing the first few weeks of the tour and even redeeming himself vs mish last week. However, I feel confident that the winner here should be none other than goatxe. Goatxe is overall the better player, and this is shown in both his games and his record. Cheese has shown he is a force to be reckon with too, but idt gxe plans on letting another user escape his infinite wrath.
RU: Mac3 vs Wubben - This is the only rematch here, and its no question who wins it. Mac3 is an ru goat while any faith I had in wubben was lost in week 7.
NU: Xiri vs TeamCharm - Imo this is the most hype match. Everyone on the turts (except myjava) has played more than 1 tier, with charm having played 5 different tiers, and still managing to be 5-3. Charm is a great player, very versatile, and a creative builder who has plenty of knowledge and experience in nu, having made it to nupl finals. While Xiri didn't make it to nupl finals like charm, Xiri has been a solid lower tiers main of mostly nu and pu for a while now, on top of being a great player who is very consistent, as shown by their record. This should be close, and I feel charm can win depending on what he brings, but I think I'll favor Xiri here because I think Xiri is the better player by a bit, and has shown more consistency than charm.
PU: tlenit vs Decem - This is probably like second most hype. Decem has had a very mixed blt while tlenit had one of the rockiest starts to blt and actually came back very nicely to finally get a positive record. I can say for certain that when playing their best, or without hax, these 2 have shown that they are both great players. Tlenit may seem like an obvious pick here as Decem hasn't played any pu this tour, while tlenit has been playing it for most of the tour, and is a solid pu main with a lot of experience, knowledge and prowess. However, Decem is a highly versatile player who plays plenty of lower tiers, and solidly. I'm giving tlenit the edge here, but taking down decem won't be easy.
LC: Surfy vs Serene Grace - I just picked 3 lappies in a row, sorry surfy but that's enough lappies for this week. Both are good lc players imo, though I can't say the same for both performances. Serene has been mostly dominant while surfy has been struggling through a lot of the tour. Overall, I think serene just outclasses surfy in terms of playing skill, lc experience and prowess, so he should win here. Sorry surfy, your name might be the most fitting for the team you're on, but lapras can't use surf if it just keeps getting flinched.
DOU: Zoaw vs mammalu - This should be the closest match imo. Both have under-performed in blt so far with records of 2-3 for zoaw, and 3-3 for mamm. These 2 are a little hard to compare as they both strike me as wild cards. Zoaw may have won only twice, but those 2 wins were against ttt and RKD, 2 well established doubles mains. The same applies for mamm, whose 3 wins were against ttt, crunchman, and shadow, 3 well established dou mains. Both of them are what I'd call inconsistent because of this, though doubles can be pretty wild itself. I'll favor mamm because I think he has had the better games and overall performances, but I think out of all these matches, zoaw has the highest chance of pulling an upset.
Monotype: ChessRobot vs Maki - This should be another close one. Robo chess master came out of nowhere and swept through most of his competition going 5-1 so far, while Maki hasn't touched mono this tour and has only played 3 times total, though they were all wins in all different tiers. ChessRobot, having played mono for the whole tour and having beaten 5/6 of his opponents seems like the right choice, but I think otherwise. Maki has plenty of history with mono, and I've seen them play it before, and solidly. Chess may be in the top 50 on the ladder, but I'm gonna have to give it to Maki because of their history playing mono, and the fact that they should have much better support. When you have the king of mono, Decem, on your team, then like they say in Allstate commercials, "You're in good hands".
These 2 teams tied when the turts were memeing, so if they're not memeing now, wouldn't that mean...
Anyways, it was fun doing predicts this year as always. Thanks for reading see you for TLT maybe! (unless tie breakers?)
(Apologies to anyone I may have possibly offended, please do not take these very seriously.)
Your welcome!won in a good game!
Since this prob my last match, so I wanna put some of my thoughts. My run hasn't been well this season and yet I was given the opportunity to play in finals. Thanks to Xiri and mj for being awesome managers. I also wanna thank Lapras Fam Mac3, halaman, Tlenit, Chessrobot, velvet, cheese, zoaw, henguinie, surfy, magicalxerneas, TMM. They all have been very supportive and friendly.
Let's bring THIS HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
