Fakee Oye no me malinterpretes, pero si algún día tienes oportunidad, tienes que probar a fumarte un peta estando completamente tapado por una manta, en plan tú dentro y sin que salga el humo jajajajajajajaja, osea no sé, estoy en la mierda, pruébalo algún día jajajkakaka
 
Power Plant Dynamos (4) vs (6) Arena Spartans

SS OU: Gtcha vs Relous - unfortunately max got subbed out. clueless of relous prowess in ss compared to sm but gonna predict it works out
SS OU: bbeeaa vs Ewin - going with big name bbeeaa but props to ewin for pulling it out in 580 turns with no sr stall even though that's a bit slimy (i did not watch it except the freezai coverage, sounds like he played it well at least)
SS OU: Shafofficiel vs March Fires - just going off strength of schedule irdk
SS Ubers: SoulWind vs SiTuM - just bias for sw on this kind of stage but both have had respectable seasons
SS DOU: Spurrific vs Animus - idk
SS UU: KSt3ve vs Lily - not this flop
SS RU: BIHI vs TheFranklin - should be a good game, franklin's wins have been more impressive but bihi can easily take it
SS NU: Ren-chon vs Charmflash - charm looked a better last week builder wise but did get bailed on some pretty big turns
SS PU: jonfilch vs Lambovino - think the meta has moved far away from the kind of style lambo dominates with. curious to see if he changes it up
SS LC: Welli0u vs daunt vs - both have had some unfortunate breaks but going with the mainer

Orange Islanders (6) vs (4) Studio Gible

SS OU: Sage vs London Beats - yassss
SS OU: TPP vs TJ - maybe a weekend trip to uberstown was all she needed to get back into an ou groove
SS OU: mind gaming vs Xrn - um should be good
SS Ubers: Exiline vs Fc - Fc has delivered in ubers pwell thus far
SS DOU: JRL vs Frania - better record
SS UU: pdt vs bb skarm - i'll bold skarm one week i promise just not this one
SS RU: Ajna vs Mac3 - think mac is more motivated at this point in the season
SS NU: Nat vs aim - should be a good one im sure aim is hella motivated to deliver her first loss
SS PU: mncmt vs termi - waittt mncmt i bolded you what happened
SS LC: boulicrok vs kythr - right

Showdown Shoguns (5) vs (5) Mt. Silver Foxes

SS OU: Chaitanya vs Tace - chait in ou sounds better
SS OU: CTC vs watashi - hmmm idk about the basedlord in 2022 boots
SS OU: blunder vs INSULT - probably
SS Ubers: crying vs Aberforth - crying games are always entertaining but i think abe will pull it out
SS DOU: Ninja vs dnagerbdager - hmmm idk
SS UU: Poek vs KM - oh boy
SS RU: lax vs Raptor - right
SS NU: Gilbert arenas vs Xiri - done a bit better
SS PU: reyscarface vs soulgazer - sg hasn't looked good this season unfortunately
SS LC: Bushtush vs S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - nah

Indigo Platoon (8) vs (2) Circuit Breakers

SS OU: Finchinator vs Punny - literally like
SS OU: ez vs damien the genius - ez is so good omfggg im bolding him vs everybody bestie
SS OU: MichaelderBeste2 vs H.M.N.I.P - should be good
SS Ubers: Tony vs Lunala - um
SS DOU: Z Strats vs Tenzai - he is 4-0 im going with that
SS UU: TDK vs Fakee - fakee can farm mid players but i dont think he takes one off tdk here
SS RU: McMeghan vs robjr - mcm has looked better and more versatile too
SS NU: GXE vs maki - not sure why maki's in nu
SS PU: Leru vs Scottie - hasn't lost yet
SS LC: tazz vs LilyAC - he's 4-0

better late than never?

Indigo Platoon (8) vs (2) Circuit Breakers

SS OU: Finchinator vs Punny - finch got gifted pretty nicely last week after sacking half his team to buzzwole when he had 20 buzz counters in the back. not the most impressive display but "a wins a win" seems to be the motto of the season for finch so hes probably pretty proud of that one. punny lost in a very close game to what he seems to think was bad rng. cringe but cant deny that hes better than finch atm
SS OU: ez vs damien the genius - it just hit me that ez is on the Jerk team alongside finch of all people. u would expect the beacon of morality on smogon to have something to say about the blatant cheating going on in his team but i guess its easier to turn a blind eye when it benefits u. im not surprised with The Jerk being ok with this but i expected better from finch. oh yeah about the matchup, only way i see damien winning is if ez gets banned before sunday or the power goes out in sayoozes gated community
SS OU: MichaelderBeste2 vs H.M.N.I.P - dont get me wrong pietros not even that good but i have a feeling he will have the right team for this game. michaels lucky and good, dangerous combo. but he also has a pool of like 12 mons to choose from for every game he plays. i trust the italian cteam machine
SS Ubers: Tony vs Lunala -
SS DOU: Z Strats vs Tenzai - discount aisle freezai got a solid win last week but hes playing z strats. sick name, sick teams, sick play. i'll go with him
SS UU: TDK vs Fakee - no way fakee is actually starting i thought that was a joke. ngl hes actually pretty decent tho im not sure how likely he is to have a lycans situation in the middle of the game. tds should consider adding a discount price to all venezuelan players just for that tbh. tdk lost last week surprisingly but the mainers still think hes the second coming of jesus christ in uu. shocker
SS RU: McMeghan vs robjr - if i had a dollar for every ru game in this tournament that would be 10x more exciting if the players were playing another ou tier i would have enough money to pay the tds to do a better job and tourban ez already. regardless of the tier mcm should be favored here tho
SS NU: GXE vs maki - makis not very good, gxe is aight. this is the kinda game i wish i could turn off the matches tag for
SS PU: Leru vs Scottie - pu is the only tier where a player like leru could be at the top of the standings
SS LC: tazz vs LilyAC - where was this tazz when we were struggling to get a win in spl 2 years ago?

Power Plant Dynamos (6) vs (3) Arena Spartans

SS OU: Gtcha vs Relous - apparently relous is in this tour, i cant be the only one that had no idea before this week went up. subbing max for him feels wrong but after getting demolished by london i cant blame the managers. last week gtcha employed his usual strat of getting smashed in the first 5 turns of the game then somehow bringing it back, except luck was not in his side at all and that led to a win for mdrag. ill give it to him for this week because relous might be washed
SS OU: bbeeaa vs Ewin - another must win beef battle for bea if he wants to save his reputation. starting to notice a trend here? i feel like ewin gets a lot of his wins off the builder (i still remember that colbur counter bro from wcop vs tony) but thats not necessarily a bad thing when youre facing someone almost as predictable as gama, as much as bea would like u to believe his trusty recycled teams are drastically different and keep him ahead of the competition. should be interesting
SS OU: Shafofficiel vs March Fires - the wcop farmers facing each other. if either of u is reading this pls tell me what the secret is i literally cant win in wcop. anyway, i have slightly more faith in march fires as a player but shaf is coming off a win vs insult and march got 6-0d last week so yea, slight edge or something
SS Ubers: SoulWind vs SiTuM - thank god situm beat tj last week, i was beginning to worry he would finish this positive. just for that i'll give him the bold this week even tho sw is most definitely the most capable player in the tier
SS DOU: Spurrific vs Animus - now that im a dou mainer ive been told i should act more friendly towards the community so i will skip the part where i beg these 2 to get better names. ive actually been on a doubles binge lately and with my limited understanding of the tier i gotta say spurrific is the better player. lets see how that turns out
SS UU: KSt3ve vs Lily - lily couldnt defeat bigotry last week which was a bit disappointing. this week she gets somewhat of a detox facing the most harmless uu player in the pool. this goes for his gameplay as well, i could count on 1 hand the amount of plays ive seen steve make in the past couple weeks. granted he didnt exactly need to last week given the matchup. i'll go with him anyway because lilys not much better
SS RU: BIHI vs TheFranklin - upset(? kinda but i like the teams hes used and his playstyle is hard to read. ngl i always get bihi and hsa mixed up i forget which 1 is the clicker, i hope its not him because then this will be a quick one
SS NU: Ren-chon vs Charmflash - charm won last week and proceeded to make the most charm-like winpost imaginable. so naturally, i gotta bold his opponent again. is renchon the guy that has his discord profile set to obvious-male-larping-as-female to get unlimited nitro from league basement dwellers? or was that another brazilian?
SS PU: jonfilch vs Lambovino - i was gonna say i wish i could bold neither but then i remembered i could just do that
SS LC: Welli0u vs daunt vs - so i guess well is just bad at lc. i'll go with daunt in hopes bratva sees this and reconsiders paying the 30€ he owes

Orange Islanders (5) vs (4) Studio Gible

SS OU: Sage vs London Beats - its unclear why sage brought mono lose to clefable last week vs finch of all ppl but that went as well as expected. i havent liked her team choices much lately, i think she was better in spl. london was pretty good last week so sure why not
SS OU: TPP vs TJ - the curse of dave continues to haunt tj and im starting to think he might finish negative after all. tpp has been doing pretty well disregarding his game last week for obvious reasons, to me this is like 50-50 but i'll go with tj so his ego isnt completely crushed
SS OU: mind gaming vs Xrn - not to underestimate xrn but idt hes particularly strong and mind has been doing this for some time, i hope he brings something crazy and wins
SS Ubers: Exiline vs Fc - something about this guy makes me extremely upset. rooting for fc
SS DOU: JRL vs Frania - my thorough analysis of all dou games so far tells me the dou frontier winner is the superior player. i like franias teams better tho
SS UU: pdt vs bb skarm - skarm has been killing it lately. then again pdt put tdk in a pack last week and shares the same record. i dont think either is great so wouldnt be surprised if both finished like 5-4 tbh. anyway im leaning towards skarm for now
SS RU: Ajna vs Mac3 - time for ajna to bounce back. mac3 hasnt been terrible for a 3k ru sub drafted by the gibbies so maybe he can send ajna into retirement
SS NU: Nat vs aim - cool game, nat has faced pretty tame opposition so far so this should be more of a challenge for her. id go with aim for an upset but he just lost to charm so ill keep my expectations low
SS PU: mncmt vs termi - both are terrible, respectfully
SS LC: boulicrok vs kythr - the bkc of lc

Showdown Shoguns (5) vs (5) Mt. Silver Foxes

SS OU: Chaitanya vs Tace - to eo or whoever is in charge of retroactively editing ppls posts on a whim in this forum, could u go back and remove any praise i gave tace in these past couple posts? jesus christ what an awful game from last week. im specially pissed because now bea will never shut up about this. anyway, i guess hes still favored against chait. or maybe not, i dont have a strong read on chaits style outside of being average, maybe he can pull this off
SS OU: CTC vs watashi - it should be rey in this slot tbh. anyway, yea, watashi wins
SS OU: blunder vs INSULT - hot mu on paper, in practice decent chance either of them brings dogshit and the games decided by turn 10. leaning towards insult because hes better
SS Ubers: crying vs Aberforth - cryings still cool
SS DOU: Ninja vs dnagerbdager - ok forget what i said earlier what kinda wannabe blarghfarghl dumbass name is this? i cant take u seriously sorry
SS UU: Poek vs KM - i was p sure km was a player i was aware of that abbreviated their name and I couldnt remember exactly who they were anymore so I looked back and this guys name used to be... kittens milk? yea nvm keep the name change. i havent rly watched poeks games outside of last week but it was good so i'll let him have this
SS RU: lax vs Raptor - lax hasnt been having the best tour (as in hes getting smashed) but i dont think raptor has the heart to send his mentor into retirement. would be an exciting mu if this wasnt ru tbh
SS NU: Gilbert arenas vs Xiri - unfortunate game for marcop last week, i dont see him losing 2 in a row without similar circumstances
SS PU: reyscarface vs soulgazer - i guess having this joke of a tier in the tournament is worth it if we can get a macthup like this in 2022. reys not that washed apparently but sg should still be favored as a pseudo-mainer. either way i wouldnt wanna be the guy laying on reys operation table after this game
SS LC: Bushtush vs S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - after a humilliating loss last week to checks notes yelodash? its no surprise to see bush in some random lower tier. ive been giving this guy 0 credit so far because of his obnoxious name but hes 3-1 so he can have this one

Technical Machines (5) vs (4) Uncharted Terrors

SS OU: Raiza vs Twixtry - raiza might have faced a more winnable mu against pietro last week had he listened to my expert insight on pietros tendencies. alas. aside from that hes had a fairly impressive start to the tour so he should be a challenge for twix, whos 2-1 but i still maintain is one of the more capable ppl playing wise in the pool. even mu, i will favor team italy
SS OU: Separation vs Eternal Spirit - sepa redeemed himself last week from a disappointing start to the tour with an expertly managed endgame against maki. tbf insight from the secret jerk tells me makis trash and shouldnt be in the tour so cant give him too much credit for that. meanwhile gama continues to use good teams and farm the opposition. it helps that 80% of the pool is painfully mediocre but hes been choking less than usual so gotta give him that. highlight of the round if u exclude beef battles and ppl playing with sayoose and the gang in call
SS OU: xray vs xavgb - i cant keep calling stresh the most overrated player in the pool if we lose this so xray better pull up with a serious team and not mew spikes balance or whatever
SS Ubers: Edgar vs Fogbound Lake - im building our ubers team this week so theres almost no chance we lose this one, specially against an npc
SS DOU: Memoric vs Nails - not gonna predict this one because amaranth told me im subbing in 5 minutes before the scheduled time (spoiler? i think we all saw this coming). looking forward to playing my current dou mentor. ill bring my own genesect
SS UU: DugZa vs Lyss - mayb if i read any messages on my team discord i would know why we subbed out pif this week for dugza. i think hes like a mono mainer (whys there 20 million mono mainers in this and no mono lmao) and his opp is like 3-1 so yea
SS RU: Floss vs Feliburn - floss is a beast
SS NU: Danny vs Kushalos - danny might be the goat after playing his scl debut in a week decider and clutching the tie against nat. kush is one of the scarier players in the pool but fuck it
SS PU: EVIL z0mOG vs sensei axew - i forgot how annoying it was to team with zomog. this isnt a shitpost this is a cry for help zom if youre reading this i hate u
SS LC: ninjadog vs Acehunter1 - please for the love of good win a game ninja
 
SS OU: bbeeaa vs Ewin - another must win beef battle for bea if he wants to save his reputation. starting to notice a trend here? i feel like ewin gets a lot of his wins off the builder (i still remember that colbur counter bro from wcop vs tony) but thats not necessarily a bad thing when youre facing someone almost as predictable as gama, as much as bea would like u to believe his trusty recycled teams are drastically different and keep him ahead of the competition. should be interesting
Leo u might be a genius no Cap

Won, gg and sorry

Showdown Shoguns (4) vs (6) Mt. Silver Foxes

SS OU: Chaitanya vs Tace - according to bea tace is the luckiest player of all time so this is an ez dub
SS OU: CTC vs watashi - ctc is not cut out for this
SS OU: blunder vs INSULT - random youtuber vs one of the best ou players
SS Ubers: crying vs Aberforth - eccentric username but he is an ubers leader
SS DOU: Ninja vs dnagerbdager - the foxes' dou streak continues
SS RU: lax vs Raptor - lax cost over 3x as much as raptor so he better win!
SS NU: Gilbert arenas vs Xiri - gilbert arenas has a better record
SS PU: reyscarface vs soulgazer - reyscarface is a washed boomer
SS LC: Bushtush vs S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - drifting support is unmatched
