highlight:

SS OU: John W vs Tace
i was asked not to predict this one so both could avoid The Blanket Curse, but either way i'd have a tough time picking. obviously as biased as it can get for me, but idgaf this is a banger match even if john w is gonna end up bringing some bullshit that will drag it on for 200 turns. they both play well and use good stuff, not too many gimmicks from either, so i guess they're kinda "boring" players in that regard, but they obviously get the job done. john was ranked higher than tace as he's seen some higher highs and has more outwardly pushed the metagame, but when both are playing at their best, i'd say they're neck and neck and two of the best in the game. despite a rough start for tace, i have no doubt both will be at that level. also noteworthy is that tace has talah support, which definitely makes this even closer. no more highlights cuz it doesn't get better than this 8)

I don't really enjoy making predicts, but by request, I have picked out some highlight matches for each tier. I have purposefully avoided picking too many matches from the same series, and while current wins are something I paid attention to, my selections aren't always between two guys with good records thus far. I hope everyone has a good week and I look forward to a Sunday that contains over half of this week's matches.
Eo Ut Mortus vs talah (SS): The most expensive player from the top team in the standings looks to take down one of the three currently undefeated players in CG OU.
Eternal Spirit vs Garay oak (SS): Interesting because Garay is currently undefeated, while Gama is looking to turn over a new leaf in a new tier, after being moved from a winless SM slot.
FlamingVictini vs Sacri’ (SS): We will get to test the theory of whether more expensive really means better quality. I think this is the most expensive CG OU match of the week, combining for a total of 49K credits.
z0mOG vs Welli0u (SM): Z0mOG has, for the second week in a row, bravely moved himself to face off against an undefeated player in their home tier. We will soon see if this is a display of dominance or foolhardiness.
BK vs Gondra (ORAS): BK has been shuffled back into ORAS to face off against one of the top performers of the ORAS pool thus far. The Tigers and Ruiners are the last 2 in the standings at the moment, so both are banking on these guys to help them climb back up.
Finchinator vs SoulWind (BW): Finch will be fighting to remain undefeated and prove he is the chad alpha male of the BW pool.
BIHI vs snøfall (DPP): Both are currently 3-0 in dpp. snøfall will have the chance to be “ranked last btw” but have the best record in the pool.
McMeghan vs Tamahome (ADV): Relevant because both teams really are in need of a win this week. Tama will be fighting for his first win vs a Classic trophy winner in his strongest tier.
Conflict vs ABR (GSC): ABR will be looking to defend his honour and cheesy team choices in this match, while Conflict will be fighting to remain undefeated.
Nails vs Kiichikos (RBY): Nails is having a rough tour thus far, but this week he has the opportunity to take down a player who is currently 3-0.

Team Raiders (5) vs (5) Indie Scooters

SS OU: Samqian vs Gefährlicher Random
SS OU: Eeveeto vs Niko
SS OU: FlamingVictini vs Sacri' - Two players who were ranked pretty highly but have had different stories so far. I've been a fan of FV's team choices for a while now and he's rarely made mistakes in battle which is a good formula for winning consistently while Sacri's had a rough start to the season and doesn't look comfortable with his teams. Regardless, this is still a highlight game for people who wanna see SS OU and could go either way.
SM OU: frisoeva vs Corazan
ORAS OU: Luigi vs Santu - Another good one to catch this week
BW OU: Jimmy Turtwig vs Caetano93
DPP OU: BIHI vs snøfall
ADV OU: CyberOdin✝ vs thelinearcurve
GSC OU: FriendOfMrGolem120 vs false
RBY OU: MetalGro$$ vs Serpi

Ever Grande BIGS (6) vs (4) Congregation of the Classiest

SS OU: Storm Zone vs lax - When he's not using regidrago playing early in the week, storm zone has a good chance to beat anyone in the pool with his unique team selection and unpredictable plays. Both have looked good so far and have been creative with teams so this is a great one to catch if you wanna see non standard SS OU.
SS OU: Eternal Spirit vs Garay oak - ES has had a rough start but I actually think he'll do good with this change to SS. Garay's been playing super well and has brought good teams every week which has led him to a convincing 3-0 but I expect ES to get his first win over a strong opponent in true ES fashion. Another battle to catch.
SS OU: ima vs Luthier
SM OU: Insult vs Jytcampbell
ORAS OU: Vulpix03 vs London Beats
BW OU: FMG vs Fakes
DPP OU: DeepBlueC vs august
ADV OU: McMeghan vs Tamahome
GSC OU: Zokuru vs TDK
RBY OU: Hayburner vs rozes

Circus Maximus Tigers (7) vs (3) Alpha Ruiners

SS OU: beatiful vs Separation - We get the OLT semis rematch this week and its clear that seperation hasn't found his footing yet compared to his OLT finals run and it doesn't get easier having to play Bea who is one of the top players in the SS OU field. Bea seems ahead in the building department and his play is as good as anyone in the pool atm. Tough one for sep but it seems bea will get his revenge for the semis.
SS OU: watashi vs mncmt - Tigers went back to flcl in ss however he's had a tough time with some difficult mu's so far. He's capable of taking this one but mncmt has been a strong option in SS for a while and should be favored to take this one.
SS OU: Bushtush vs Askov
SM OU: robjr vs Empo
ORAS OU: BK vs Gondra
BW OU: dice vs Frania
DPP OU: ToF vs Emeral
