how u doin'?

blunder vs Raptor - Raptor has been performing really well lately, but I think blunder is still the more complete ORAS player and has a larger variety of teams to choose from.
Finchinator vs Santu - really surprised with how well Finch has performed recently. Santu is also a very solid ORAS player. Both have the tendency to tilt quickly however. This series is pretty even to me, might come down to who is luckier or who remains more calm and collected.
MichaelderBeste2 vs Spl4sh - Although I think Michael is a great overall player, I'll have to go with one of my favorite ORAS players overall atm. I didn't expect Spl4sh to drop to the Lower Bracket for this round, but I also don't see him lose 2 series in a row, whereas Michael has been fighting for his life in the lower bracket for a while already.
erz vs Empo - I think Erz is too stubborn with his team choices and that limits him sometimes. I know for a fact that Empo can do more than spam HO in ORAS at this point. Going with him :v4:
