Glowwater Thralls 5 vs 2 Mad Hatters
The Clamour 5 vs 1 Museosaurs
Overwatch 5 vs 2 Deadpool's Army

The Art of Warfare 1 vs 5 Sacrilege
Sky Invading Rhinos 5 vs 4 Cake
Black Flight Squadron 3 vs 5 Zill's Merry Men

Rydr 5 vs 3 Holy Roman Army

-Glowwater Thralls are definitely one of the strongest teams, and as much as Mad Hatters aren't the worst either, I believe that the Thralls' experience and skill level still will be overwhelming for the Hatters.
-The Clamour have quite the big shoes to fill for Mandarins, and as it stands they do give quite a show, beating Hatters and causing trouble for Thralls. They will definitely take the win against Muse, though I expect a slip as usual for the benefit of Muse Team.
-Overwatch definitely have quite unique style, and they are more experienced than DPA, but they tend to heavily focus about disabling strategies, which I expect may be to the benefit of aggressive Deadpool team. That being said, other than few kills caused by being caught out of position I think OVW experience will win the game for them, together with a little effort.

-I understand that TAW may have trained hard, but I don't think it's to the level of many other teams yet, including Sacrilege. SAC in my eyes would be undefeated if not for the time restrictions during their last match, and defeating SIR is a proof in itself that they are a force to be reckoned with.  Hard to say what will be the main factor for the match result here, is it yet too little an experience from TAW, or incredibly good performance from SAC. Nevertheless, I expect it to be quite one-sided here.
-This is one of the toughest matches to predict. Cake showed us that they are incredibly powerful team, that is wise not to be underestimated, but I've been a witness of SIR training quite alot this week. Add their overall competitive performance and you have them as winners, though I'm sure this will be a close, and really exciting match.
-Now this is the match I expect everyone to be excited about. From my perspective, being quite a freshman in GoIO competitive community, I can only judge it by the performance of both teams during their matches. I expect MM to take this one, for even if they still need to get the dust off their playbook and rust off their ship engines, they seemed more reliable with their performance in the Hephaestus' Challenge than BFS, that indeed do try to think outside the box, but it's yet to work for them effectively, especially since they have the same issues as Merry Men, being dormant for some time.

-HRA did well in their matches, but it was against the teams that still struggle with their performance and only warm up for more serious games. This time they'll stand against a much more experienced team, and Rydr, of all the teams possible (self advertising). I believe that this game will be quite intense, but if we Ryders will manage to get the pilots we want, we should be able to take the win. Good Luck and let's have a good game HRA o/

I'm sure we will have our full crew this week! Week 1 we lost a main part of our "secret" strategy, Week 2 we lost a pilot but this week we should have a full crew and another shot on dunes to use our intended strategy! Tropo! We're coming to get you! ^^

Gwth def. Hatters 5-2
Clamour def. Muse 5-1
OVW def. DPA 5-0

-The Thralls haven't really been performing as I expected them to so far, but they're 2 for 2 and seem stronger all around than the Hatters.
-Muse has been pulling off some decent games, but unless something goes terribly wrong for the Clamour it shouldn't be very close.
-DPA has been lacking in performance, and OVW has done a solid job in the first two weeks. Easy win for them.

SAC def.  TAW 5-0
SIR def. Cake 5-3
MM def. BFS 5-3

-SAC is a pretty good team, and would have two matches in their pocket if it weren't for some issues last week. By comparison, as far as I remember TAW has yet to land a kill so far.
-From what I've seen, SIR should be a bit stronger than Cake. Or maybe not. Let's call that the upset of the week.
-MM should take this one, unless BFS has a particularly good week.

HRA def. Rydr 5-4

-HRA is one of the best new teams in a while. While I'd usually give this one to the Rydrs easily, the substitutions on the Rydr side could give HRA the edge.

Glowwater Thralls - Mad Hatters 5:0
Nothern fjords is so dammed imbalanced map, where just the spawn place would give you 40% to victory. Thralls have red spawn, and their domination is obvious. Also, Oracle mentioned yesterday, that Hatters have a new pilot for the team, which could weaken  them as well.

Clamour - Muse 5:2
Awwww, I am so glad that our small paddling of ducklings finally migrates from fjords! I hope this match will be fun and tense.

Overwatch - DPA  5:1
Dunes Red Spawn, Overwatch doing really well last days and FluffyHetshe in the team - these are three factors, which tell me : Deadpool fleet will break before they manage to rush the enemy! But sniper's matches already gave unpredictable results when Cake got their glorious victory over Sacrilege. I don't know if Deadpool army can snipe though.

Sacrilege - TAW 5:2
I suppose SAC will fight with all their fury after last week, and canyons will help them in there.

SIR - Cake 5 :3
I am a real fan of Kirk now! Cake did amasing job  by this moment, but SIRs are strong rivalry. I expect an interesting to watch, tense battle.

Merry Men  - BFS 5:4
By this moment Merry Men performed nicely, and Bully Boys did not. But! BFS got a cool red spawn over there on Fjords.  Can't really predict this match, but I expect this to be close and intense as well. No clue what wil be, if they go for sniping.

HRA - Ryder 5:4
HRA already dominated on Duel and Ryders have 2 replaces in the team because of schedules issues.  I expect a close game, and if Ryders, despite my prediction, win this, I will get drunk to celebrate! 

Surprize of the wek : The vultures defeated by falcons, Ryders beat HRA 5:4
