Week 5 Review


The Outback Fraghouse vs The Peach Creek Boys

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: 2-0 The Outback Fraghouse
Outcome: 2-0 The Outback Fraghouse
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

Will’s review: While I may not have done any predictions for this week, I saw this scoreline coming from a mile away. The Outback Fraghouse just overall out performed The Peach Creek Boys. Pizzagun8 and Uber Alles certainly did not have a bad match, but it was not enough to keep up.

We Overslept.. vs No.3 Pencils

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: 1-2 No.3 Pencils MOTW
Outcome: 0-2 No.3 Pencils
Logs: First Half Second Half Third Half

Will’s review: This match was MUCH closer than the 0-2 score reads. Overall No.3 Pencils only beat We Overslept… by 8 frags and 2000 damage. Classes were also fairly even as well, with the standouts being the flank for No.3 Pencils. beep and spaghetti out fragged the flank of We Overslept… by 15 frags, providing a lot of breathing room for their combo. MANA-_-TEA had a great game top fragging in the server with 39 and winning out in the SvS by 6 frags, but unfortunately it was not enough for his team to go off of.

Lasky’s review: Thi was a rough loss for We Overslept… Both their combo and sniper had a very good game, with MANA-_-TEA top fragging and Soap top damaging. Unfortunately for them, No.3 Pencils’ flank had a monster of a game, with beep and spaghetti combining for 63 frags. This was enough to completely turn a close game and secure a win for No.3 Pencils.

Will’s MVP: spaghetti

Lasky’s MVP: beep


Train Station vs Indian Panini

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: 2-0 Train Station
Outcome: 2-0 Train Station
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

Will’s review: While I certainly did not expect Indian Panini to pick up a round, I did not expect the match to basically be a slaughter. Heading the charge is Jinzo with an insane 44-9 over the course of the match. mel0n for Indian Panini top fragged his team with 22, but a scout can only do so much on a combo heavy map like Vigil.

Lasky’s Review: As expected, Train Station’s absolutely superior combo gave them an easy win. Both Jinzo and c0ry pounded in this one, with both of them dropping over 450 dpm overall. Additionally Jinzo top fragged the server at 44. Like I said, it’s unfortunate for Indian Panini to get this matchup, as the map favored Train Station’s standout players while punishing Indian Panini’s.

Will’s MVP: Jinzo

Lasky’s MVP: Jinzo


Five Days vs Aureus

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: 0-2 Aureus
Outcome: 2-0 Five Days
Logs: First Half Second Half

Will’s review: While not a dominating performance from Five Days, they definitely had the upper hand. Bon Qui Qui had a very strong showing, top fragging in the server at 45 frags. DeanTheTurtle also had a good game, top damaging both halves and got 42 frags.

Lasky’s review: Despite the 2-0 score, Aureus put up a hell of a fight. DeanTheTurtle had a monster of a game, with 484 dpm overall. vohh also carried his weight, matching his opposite number and winning the svs 8-4. Unfortunately for Aureus, Five Days had great power in both their flank and combo, with Papa Peach and Soala combining for 61 frags, and Bon Qui Qui having a monster game top fragging at 45.

Will’s MVP: Bon Qui Qui

Lasky’s MVP: Bon Qui Qui


dog vs EVHS Cheerleaders

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: 2-0 dog
Outcome: 2-0 dog
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

Will’s review: It’s crazy to think originally we had EVHS Cheerleaders as one of the top teams in the division, only for them to go 1-4 then dying. I seriously wonder if EVHS Cheerleaders was even trying in this match or if they saw the writing on the wall and just stopped caring.

Lasky’s review: Will is mean but I have to agree.

Will’s MVP: hyon

Lasky’s MVP: hyon


Utopia Turned Dystopian vs Bye Team
Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: 2-0 Utopia Turned Dystopian
Outcome: 2-0 Utopia Turned Dystopian
Logs: N/A

Will’s review: A bye week is a free week.

Lasky’s review: A free week is a bye week.

Week 6 Review



The Outback Fraghouse vs Five Days

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: N/A
Outcome: 4-1 The Outback Fraghouse
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

Will’s review: The Outback Fraghouse’s dominance of Main continues. Even though The Outback Fraghouse won, the frags and damage were extremely close. This leads me to believe Five Days was not taking advantage of the bomb of a game Powerpuker had, who 3 way tied top fragging in the server with 42 and top damaging in the server with 17000. Alternatively, they could have feared trxter who 8 med picks and 7 demo picks, effectively stopping any momentum.

Lasky’s Review: Once again, the Outback Fraghouse shows why they’re a favorite for placement. trxter and reigh combined for 80 kills overall. Additionally, almost every single class on The Outback Fraghouse ever so slightly outperformed their opposite number. The exceptions to this are Lary and Powerpuker, who tied topfragging the server at 42. Unfortunately for them, it wasn’t enough to pull it back.

Will’s MVP: trxtr

Lasky’s MVP: trxter


No.3 Pencils vs Train Station

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: N/A
Outcome: 1-4 Train Station
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

Will’s review: I don’t know if anyone saw this outcome happening. The seasoned combo from No.3 Pencils seemed to either not be in sync or just having a rough game, with c0ry and Jinzo outfragging them by almost double. asian had top fragging in the server and top damaging for his team, but he can only do so much if his combo couldn’t follow up.

Lasky’s review: Had predictions come out, I probably would have said 4-2 No.3 Pencils. This game was definitely an upset, with c0ry leading the charge. Every single class on No.3 Pencils got outmatched by their counterpart, with the exceptions being asian, and spaghetti. Train Station’s combo had a hell of a match, with Jinzo and c0ry absolutely pounding throughout the game.

Will’s MVP: n00t

Lasky’s MVP: c0ry


dog vs We Overslept...

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: N/A
Outcome: 4-0 dog
Logs: First Half Second Half

Will’s review: This was just not We Overslept... ‘s match, as they just were not able to get anything going. Dog was just the clearly superior team, out performing We Overslept… entirely.

Lasky’s Review: Once again, not much to say. Will is the article god. (It’s me but don’t tell him I said that)

Will’s MVP: hyon

Lasky’s MVP: jel


Utopia Turned Dystopian vs Aureus

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: N/A
Outcome: 0-4 Aureus
Logs: First Half Second Half

Will’s review: Utopia Turned Dystopian’s loss on Product makes them 0/3 on King of the Hill. Kalvyn and Bagel had good performances, but realistically Aureus just played a better game of Product.

Lasky’s review: Utopia Turned Dystopian’s koth woes continue. Despite a strong performance from ally, Aureus absolutely stomped this game. DeanTheTurtle stomped all over everything this game, dropping 685 dpm and getting 4 medpicks. Additionally, Bagel went 29/8 overall. This strong combo presence combined with Utopia Turned Dystopian’s lack of a main demo caused this match to be one sided from the beginning.

Will’s MVP: Kalvyn

Lasky’s MVP: DeanTheTurtle


The Peach Creek Boys vs Indian Panini

Will’s Prediction: N/A
Lasky’s Prediction: N/A
Outcome: 2-4 Indian Panini
Logs: First Half Second Half Third Half

Will’s review: This outcome is pretty surprising, as The Peach Creek Boys definitely appears to be the better team. They were even able to outfrag Indian Panini by 22. Every round either went into double overtime or was extremely close. This leads me to believe The Peach Creek Boys has trouble pushing off frags.

Lasky’s review: Essentially what Will said. There aren’t any standout players on Indian Panini that single handedly pushed this game over the edge, it’s just that Indian Panini played off their frags better, especially in the second half.

Will’s MVP: wonder

Lasky’s MVP: wonder




Week 7 Predictions

Lasky has been busy recently and did not have time to finish the predictions.

The Outback Fraghouse vs dog
Will’s Prediction: 1-2 dog MOTW

Will’s Preview: With dog’s recent roster changes they have been extremely strong, strong enough I think to take the win against The Outback Fraghouse on a heavy coordination map of Steel. I expect both combos to play a massive role in deciding the outcome of this match.

Will’s Players to Watch: Toucan Slam, Rikuus



Train Station vs Aureus
Will’s Prediction: Train Station: 2-0
Lasky’s Prediction:

Will’s preview: A high main team faces a mid main team on the cusp of playoffs. Unfortunately for Aureus, I just can’t see them taking a round off Train Station. DeanTheTurtle will more than likely have a huge game, but Train Station will overall be better.


Will’s Players to watch: Jinzo, DeanTheTurtle


No.3 Pencils vs Indian Panini
Will’s Prediction: 2-0 No.3 Pencils

Will’s preview: After No.3 Pencils surprising lost to Train Station, they have to prove they are able to shake off the loss and come back stronger. Like Upward, No.3 Pencils has been playing this map for 2-4 years at this point. With Indian Panini being comprised of newer highlander players, I don’t see them able to overcome the massive amounts of experience No.3 Pencils has.


Will’s Players to Watch: Brick HugHouse, dro



Five Days vs The Peach Creek Boys
Will’s Prediction: 2-1 Five Days

Will’s preview: While Five Days is better than The Peach Creek Boys, I definitely think The Peach Creek Boys can take a round off them. If they do it will be on the back of Uber Alles and Mr Z going big.


Will’s Players to Watch: Bon Qui Qui, Uber Alles


We Overslept... vs Utopia Turned Dystopian
Will’s Prediction: 2-1 We Overslept...

Will’s preview: This match can definitely go either direction. These 2 teams played each other in S3 Semifinals, which was a very contested game, so We Overslept… will be wanting to prove themselves. On the other side of the coin, Utopia Turned Dystopian will be wanting to prove that they knocked them out for a reason. Depending on how the other matches go, the winner has a small chance of making the playoffs.


Will’s Players to Watch: Cmdr.Cameron, Western
