Quantum Tesseract (60) vs willdbeast (40)

While both are equally skilled, Quantum beat Hassin last round (and it would've been 2-0 if he hadn't choked g1) and it's not hard to see why. While Hassin looks like a good player by all means, he's been taking teams from willdbeast and all of Will's teams that he's revealed so far share a very exploitable weakness amongst them which Quantum took immediate advantage of last round. Based on this alone, it gives Quantum an incredible advantage. However, I believe Will still has a reasonable chance because he's had the opportunity to analyze the weakness his teams have based off of last round, where all of Quantum's replays show off the weakness his teams have - I believe Will is going to fix this weakness for the final round, but I don't think that he'll be able to do so in a way that doesn't leave him open to other things as taking into account one large weakness in multiple teams and incorporating them into your future building generally takes a while. On top of the advantage of hindsight, Will also knows his teams better as he made them himself, which should boost his chances a bit. In the end, I believe Quantum's going to pull through, but this should be a bunch of interesting games to watch.

Oh, I also can't root against a Mega Ray.
 
People I'd like to thank:
A huge shoutout to fsk who made the cores I brought to the open, they definitely worked out.
Thanks Hassin627 for being an excellent test bed for my teams for earlier rounds and props to him for getting so far despite not being a BH player, goes to show his versatility as a player. I've known this guy for way too long but he's always a hilarious guy to prep with.
Thanks to aki0s and @ whatever SL42 (sorry guy called whatever who I accidentally tagged :/) is called now for looking at some teams for me and GL Volkner for not being a traitor after all.

Thanks to all the BH and wider OM community (who I cant tag because I can only do 5), you make it a really fun place to be especially you of the OM Discord. You know who you are >.>

Thanks also to The Immortal for unlocking this thread for me to post.
