I would suggest Clmr for the Clamour but I need to verify with their leadership.

C1: GwTh def TAW 5-1
C2: Clam def IRIS 5-3
C3: GwTh def Clam 5-3
C4: IRIS def TAW 5-2
C5: Clam def IRIS 5-3

D1: MAG def xPIx - 5-4
D2: Duck def CC 5-1
D3: Duck def MAG 5-1
D4: CC def xPIx 5-4
D5: MAG def CC 5-4

E1: MadH def TCCB 5-1
E2: BFS def VOLW 5-2
E3: Gent def MadH 5-3
E4: Gent def BFS 5-2
E5: VOLW def TCCB 5-2
E6: MadH def VOLW 5-2
E7: BFS def MadH 5-3


Pretty much a total guessing for the newer teams.
The first two brackets had clear favorites for me and the teams in there are well known. You know their strengths and weaknesses.
A newcomer vs newcomer game is a total guess cause you barely know anything from them.

C5: Clamour def. IRIS 5-3

D1: MAG def. xPIx 0-0
D2: Mandarins def. CC 5-0
D3: Mandarins def. MAG 5-0
D4: CC def. xPIx 0-0
D5: MAG def. CC 5-1

E1: Hatters def. TCCB 5-0
E2: BFS def. VOLW 5-3
E3: Gents def. Hatters 5-0
E4: Gents def. BFS 5-0
E5: VOLW def. TCCB 5-1
E6: Hatters def. VOLW 5-2
E7: BFS def. Hatters 5-4


Group C:

GwTh are really great at what they do, so I expect them to take this group fairly easily. If we see a Spire then a couple of kills could be landed on them. I haven't been all that impressed with what I've seen of IRIS or TAW, so I could see The Clamour taking the second seed despite being a recently formed team.

Group D:

The newcomers probably won't be causing any massive upsets or anything, and the rest is mostly guesswork. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a forfeit from one of the teams, and I'm putting my money on Phalanx for that.

Group E:

A bit tougher. Hatters have a solid Gents roster, so dealing with Cupcake Bandits shouldn't be an issue. BFS will likely also win their match, but they have some Russians as opposition, and we all know how tough those guys can get. Next up Gents will beat the Hatters because they're usually the better team, but also because Hatters have had to replace both their captains. I'm sure they have two fantastic replacements ready, but having lots of experience flying with your teammate is possibly the most important requirement for success in competitive GoIO. Next up Gents will beat BFS because mid/long-range>mines, especially on Fjords. Next up the VOLW will beat Cupcake Bandits... Because Russians I guess. I recognize at least one name on their team, which is more than I can say for their opponents. That won't be enough against Hatters though, who as I said have a bunch of great Gents on their team. Finally BFS can probably pull a victory out against Hatters, who once again have two captains who almost certainly haven't gotten as much time flying together as Brick and Gilder.

Interestingly I was telling my team all week that Serra's Sentinels probably wouldn't show up. If only I put my money where my mouth was.

Although technically they did show, they just didn't have enough people..

Group C

Match 1 - GwTh def. TAW 5-0
Match 2 - IRIS def. Clam 5-2
Match 3 - GwTh def. IRIS 5-2
Match 4 - Clam def. TAW 5-3
Match 5 - IRIS def. Clam 5-1

Reasoning: The Thralls pack a heavy punch and have a lot of experience under their belt. Clam and TAW don't have as much experience (I think) as IRIS.


Group D
Match 1 - Neither team shows 0-0
Match 2 - Mandarins def. Clock 0-0 (no show)
Match 3 - Mandarins win (no show)
Match 4 - Draw? 0-0 (no show)
Match 5 - Draw? 0-0 (no show)

Reasoning: Pretty sure the other three teams won't show, giving Mandarins nothing to do but arrive before watching the other streams in boredom.

Group E

Match 1 - Hatters def. Cupcakes 0-0 (no show)
Match 2 - BFS def. VOLWe 5-1
Match 3 - Gents def. Hatters 5-2
Match 4- Gents def. BFS 5-1
Match 5 - VOLWe def . Cupcakes 0-0 (no show)
Match 6 - Hatters def. VOLWe 5-0
Match 7 - BFS def. Hatters 5-3

Reasoning: I'm just tossing around that no show card a lot, although I hope I'm proven wrong. xD Overall I'm just going with the more experienced team. I'm fairly confident in all of these but the Match 7.

that would suck..

anyway for those interested in some insider knowledge of group B.

The first game is going to be very very interesting. TAW have slowly been moving from a casual team to a more organized and tactical team.
I have spent some time with Hunter from TAW and shown him how to play the diffrent maps, and also how valuable communcation and positioning is.
I can't wait to play this game.

Dang! If I knew, I would have played in the lottery :P
Interesting how the group A played out :)

Congratulations to the winning teams and good luck to the upcoming matches. I will post my guessing later :)

I think I'm going to have to go through and re-count points. I'm pretty sure I should actually have 5 points (4 from A, 1 from B), and if I miscounted my own score then goodness knows what I missed on someone else's score.

Incidentally, I will be away from my computer most of the weekend until monday night, so odds are I won't be able to update anything until then at the earliest. So, you know, forewarning. :P
