Ok.
This should be fun to follow. Here is some analysis from yours truly.

Red Group
CT v Nederlands

If DaAwesomeDude1 doesn't equate getting haxed to choking 10 turns in a row in his match like he usually does, CT will have a nice good snack this round. rob. is gonna come out the shadows like Batman while Nederlands gasp in fear, juggling, or w/e nederland people do.

OU v France

Since I don't know half the France users personally barring names I've heard like Scythe let me just establish that putting Team Pokepals in RU and Ajwf in UU must be the cue Reverb and Dread is looking to catch some nice and easy losses this round. Maybe trying to fake out the competition to pull some upsets later who knows. It's common knowledge most of the OU auth are quite bad at battling / building and its best players are normally everyone not here. They might have the lower tiers down a bit more solid though, with shartruce pretty familiar with PU and CZ the only person in a room that averages 500 users daily to play LC.
Blue Group
My relatives v Tours

The Tours lineup is just way more sound with familiar faces who either have a reputation for being good playing or have better resources to utilize between its player pool. Always has a cute Slowking avatar on Skype. Playing test games with rozes before I became a team cancer and left showed that rozes is good and will be a valuable asset on top of everyone else there. Maybe my bean loving, banana frying, relatives will prove me wrong.

Wifi v NU

Blitzamirin doesnt think I havent seen him lurking on pokemon online dropping that knowledge in OU but I see him :3c. With that said I think NU will probably take this. The lower tier players for Wifi are largely unknown so there isn't much to judge but NUs lineup looks like they have more relative experience playing and tournament wise. Cranham can probably take Ubers really easily for Wifi however. I think he's proven himself overtime not to be total dung at Ubers so props.
Silver Group
Staff v Survivor

"Zodiax who's gonna play OU for us. Most of us are just senior staff we don't actually play pokemon and too busy trying to stop the anger of badgeholders :( ." - Staff
"Well we can always have antemortem play." - Zodiax
"No way man, I want to play LC, where all the cute mons are Lando-T is ugly." - Antemortem
"Ok, I think I've watched AM and asked him how to OU enough to have an idea what to do. I'll bring Chesnaught I think that's a good mon right?" - Zodiax
"I like fried chicken and guys." - ryan

UU v Mafia

Lol in the nicest way possible, Mafia doesn't stand a chance against the UU lineup. Holy Moly.
Gold Group
Monotype vs Scavengers

I honestly don't know anybody there well other than alls falls down who is an OU guy primarily.

Anime and Manga v RMT

I know most of the RMT guys and feel like their lineup is just more consistent. Their strong trait will definitely be like the Tournaments room in compiling resources for effectiveness.
Crystal Group
PU v Chinese

I don't know many of the Chinese room players other than John Yui who is appropriately put in the OU slot. Megazards constant complaining of hax and largely irrelevant factors throughout his PUPL games was rather cringe to watch. If that attitude persists it's really gonna bring PU down and most of these players look more like lower tier specialists anyways.

Dutch v RU

Dutch needs to throw in the towel now. That RU lineup is death x_x. I love you CT but good luck l0l
Emerald Group
Ubers v LC

I think Ubers has this. The players in the Ubers lineup are put into slots with guys who are more adapt at those tiers than LC is in a general sense. It could be either groups win though, since Cased can grab the NU slot easily while Madoka has already taken the LC one.

Card Games v Abnormally happy Singers

Dont know anyone here. It'll be like watching an OU room tour.
Ruby Group
Battle Spot v OM

The higher tier players for OM looks like they have the advantage here, especially Gunner Rohan in the Ubers slot. The lower tier matchups look like they can go either way barring iplaytennis as long as he doesnt do a signature end game choke.

Dubs v Game Corner

My perception of dub players is that most of them only know and familiarize themselves with dubs. I guess that's a pretty gross generalization but outside of Memoric watching most dub players play other tiers is watching a trainwreck in slow motion. The only advantage is that Game Corner looks like they pulled out the reject Team Rocket Grunts from the basement to put together their lineup.
Sapphire Group
Italians vs Pro Wrestling

I honestly can't believe I'm saying this much to my CT pals surprise but I think Pro Wrestling has the advantage here. All the relevant Italian players are preoccupied with WCOP and other tours to where their line up seems weak at first glance. Who knows though.

Scholastic v Pokemon Players at Starbucks

jacob being on scholastic is a free win in the OU slot. Steeledges made a smart choice there.
Have fun :]
A handicapped manatee could make better predictions regarding Mafia vs UU. How about waiting and watching us play before counting us out, bro.

uw0t m9 we're on the same team and all but like, UU is good and has a lot of famous players and we have a bunch of unknown players. It's OK to predict for the other team to win. chill. :v

Yeah how dare that piece of shit, predicting that a lineup of mostly SPL players would beat a team where the only recognizable player is only recognized because his name is a decade old meme

(my understanding of it is that Huston is upset that AM totally counted us out)(even though we're going to lose)

HOW DARE YOU CRITICIZE PRAISERUFFLETS
