preliminary pre-PR roast:
(if you are offended by this post, know that it is meant to be 100% serious)
A solid all around team. First there's Skarph, the greatest to ever do it (sorry Fardin, that ain't you. Not sure if you even crack the top 5 TBH). Then there's crying, a newer player on the AG scene, who's had some impressive runs recently. And you got MZ, a surefire performer in the ORAS/USUM slots. Swastik is coming off an impressive SS seasonal run, and Ainzcrad has proven his ability in AG team tours of the past. Satanic Beast is a solid USUM pick, and Inder is solid for SS. Not sure why Polt is here though, maybe to bring teams like this
It is my unbiased opinion that this is a goated team.
Definitely a shakier team from an initial glance, but could definitely outperform expectations with the right support. Kate is a great NDAG player, but she did lose to 6 Magnemite once with Kyurem-B on her team. Curious. Chlo is a strong ORAS pick, but drafting her might bear the cost of incomprehensible rubbish being posted in the team chat. But this is Kate's team after all, so who are we kidding! Andyboy is an outstanding player, just don't put him versus smeargle cheese and he should bring a dub in each week. I'm pretty sure Kate drafted Ballfire to eliminate from the NDAG pool the one player that beat her in NDPL (O M L), and Lunala/Lauriane/Rotten are good support options. Not sure why Kate drafted AGL though, Pichus isn't playing in this tour??!!
Where has Pichus been btw, haven't seen her in a hot sec
This is a solid team no doubt. Baconeatinassassin is one of the best to ever do it (unless he's playing Anique or default0), and should slot nicely into Bo3. Zayele is one of the best ORAS players here, and can generally slot wherever the team needs her. Lotiasite is a solid SS pick, as is Royal1604. Just restrain Loti from bringing LO Zygarde every week. GRNBLN and Unicorns are both coming off of impressive AGPL runs, so it was an interesting decision to draft both of them in a tour with only 1 USUM slot (nice one, Bacon). And last but certainly not least, we have 2 GOATS: Farce Of The Death and 80 Years (*8O Years).
Another shakier team, that can do well if the team performs beyond the first 3 slots. Fc is lucky and bad. So is Icemaster! Except at least Icemaster has a Circuit Playoffs title. Default0 is god, enough said. Velvet is perhaps a bit rusty, but proved that she can perform when it matters during AGPL II. Mr. 378 provides good Ubers support, and temp provides good YouTube support! Crunchman will probably be contained into his own channel a week into the tour, and idk who Ren is tbh.
Alright, who's gonna say it. Fardin + Geysers + Tic-Tac Toe Guru—now THAT'S good team chemistry if I've ever seen it. I mean, what could possibly go wrong there? Nothing more than some good ol' good spirited camaraderie, that's what. Very fitting for this trio to be on a team that contains the word "Malding". Staxi is a solid NDAG pick, and PDT is great in SS. Ransei brings in the much needed PH support, and fabwooloo should be alright. Snoms is perhaps a bit less established, but could make an impa—wait a second, where
have I read this before :pensive:
The [Real and Serious] PR will be coming later this week (hopefully)
