Week 3 Predictions


While Admirable is still looking for motivation from the bottom of his pint, howdeh provides us with the weekly shot of quick predictions again:

Howdeh's Week 3 Predictions

Hey again guys, looks like Week 3 is starting with a whole new set of matches, this weeks maps are ns_veil and ns_eclipse, two very nice maps to be played, so there should be some awesome games! In Group A, NS~Force and Snow Rollers are on a roll with the points, winning both matches played, whilst in Group B the tanks of Division 2 and the Fallen Angels are also battling for the top. (Kiez and Fallen need to play the match from Week 1 still.)

Divison 2 : Group A


For this game I can only really talk about one team, (I watched a little bit of the match against sR) I still haven’t been able to watch VIGOR* play, my internet is so slow at the moment, I can’t even download the demo’s! NATURALFISHERS were playing it cool in week 1 and week 2, drawing with Quaxy and having a great start against Snow Rollers, this team has many good players, each that play a good, strong part in every match, I just hope that they can pull this match off and get themselves most of the points in this game. However, I’ve still no idea who does what roll, from what I’ve seen its different each time round. Good luck guys!

Impact players:
NATURALFISHERS: sorca (Fade), sandwich (Fade/Lerk?), Kamakaze? (Skulk)

For this match I’d predict a NATURALFISHERS 4-0 VIGOR*. Good luck with the game guys!


Quaxy - wtf.=>

Aaaah, it’s the Finnish team of the Division against the newly formed French-Belgium elites! Starting with Quaxy, I haven’t actually seen this team play any matches this week, not to mention the official wasn’t scheduled, (I’m sure it wasn’t your fault!) in which they would get possibly most or all points from. These guys have been playing like mad, especially last week, and they are improving every time, I think these guys will do better on marine rounds this week, as they spotted their mistakes against NATURALFISHERS, and hopefully they will be able to act upon them!

On the other hand, wtf.=>, a newly formed French/Belgium team was created to replace Totalidy, they had a bad game against the strong NS~Force and I haven’t actually seen them practise at all this week, I however do know their alien rounds will be strong, considering they have ChiBi` as Lerk! I hope to be able to write more about this team, I will try my best to watch this game!

Impact players:
Quaxy Gayming: Rasputin (Fade), MoZa (Lerk), MULK (Skulk)
Wtf.=>: ChiBi` (Lerk), Tjul (Commander)

For this match I would predict a Quaxy 3-1 wtf.=>. Though if wtf.=> practise some more, I would not be surprised if it was 2-2. Have a great game guys!

Quaxy 3-1 wtf.=>

NS~F - sR |

Ohohohohoho! The top teams in this Group in my opinion, I feel this will be a very close match, as both teams have teamwork, experience and some individual skill! Starting with NS~Force, these guys really have surprised me, considering I had never seen them before until the officials, and they are doing very well, their teamwork is great on marine rounds, ambushing is nice, and they have some solid life forms on alien rounds! -=Walking-Target=- would be the one I’d have to pick out who stands out the most, he knows what to do in tight situations, and he will save them a round at least, with his sneaky skulking.

On the other hand, the Snow Rollers have been doing very well, also winning both matches, and with the addition of Taurus these guys are going to roll even harder, providing he plays! These guys fully trust each other and know exactly what they are going to do before hand, they spot mistakes, and never make them again, they are truly a strong team. I hope to see these guys show us what they are made of!

Impact Players:
NS~Force: -=WalkingTarget=- (Random!?), Sifright (Fade)
SnowRollers: tjab0 (Marine), Zared (Marine), Taurus (Lerk?)

For this match I would predict a NS~Force 2-2 SnowRollers, though I do know sR are capable of taking a round, they just need to prove it to me! This will be a game to watch!

NS~Force 2-2 SnowRollers

Divison 2 : Group B

v3.ns - Fallen`

Woooo, the match I’ve been looking forward to write about, El Fork (…Well, it would be without me!) versus the team who came, they saw, and they conquered! Its v3! This match is going to be very close, I know this because both teams want to fight for the title and will pull out everything to win just in Week 3! Starting with v3, these guys have been progressing A LOT since the defeat against TTS. With all the help from the ex-exigent players, reflect gamers, these guys are going to hit hard. This team will have to put on a lot of pressure on both rounds to take the points, as will Fallen`. With James and his shotgunning, and amplifier’s American tactics, Fallen` will be in for a shock on the marine rounds. Their alien rounds have progressed since last official, with more pressure on resource towers and heavy hitting with the fades, these guys will play very well!

As for Fallen`, it is pretty much the same in my opinion, after playing it cool against the Latvians and coming close in most practises, this team will also have to put in a lot of pressure on both sides. With ContagiouS in the chair and his experienced players, their marine rounds will be smooth, and should be fast on the pressure. Alien rounds are very quick paced, they find that their great ambushing at the start of games are always very impacting in game, getting up that quick hive and fade will bring on the quick pressure!

Impact players:
Veni Vidi Vici: James (Shotgun, Fade), Steve (Marine), amplifier (Commander)
Fallen Angels: howdeh (Marine), Trigu (Lerk), wicker (Fade)

For this match I would predict a Veni Vidi Vici 2-2 Fallen Angels. However, both teams are capable of snatching rounds from each other, I guess the team who puts the most effort into the games will succeed. As I said, this game will be very close!

Veni Vidi Vici 2-2 Fallen Angels

lif // - [Kiez]

The Latvians versus Kiez. This match should be one to watch, as there maybe some suprises from the Latvians. The Latvians haven’t really got off to a bad start, drawing with a new coming team, then losing to Fallen, however this could be blamed due to the ping spikes of the players or not having some of their impacting players. I still feel these guys need more practise though, and need to play often. They do have team work, and I can’t deny that, but sometimes they lose track and it turns into public. These guys need to play strong through the whole round, not just playing it strong right at the start, remember, you haven’t lost yet!

Kiez are topping the Group right next to Fallen, however, those two teams have a score to settle at some point, and I hope it will be scheduled quite soon! Kiez have a strong line-up, they have great teamwork, and a lot of experience, I have no doubt in a win to Kiez for this game, providing Cheesy keeps up with the pressure in early game, then letting Handschuh finish the alien rounds with a smooth touch! Marineing sometimes gets a little bit sloppy, but with Handschuh again, the pressure is coming very fast. Watch out Latvians!

Impact Players:
Lif //: Surrounder (Fade), Aryan (Annoying Lerk!)
Kiez: Handschuh (Marine, Fade), Cheesy (Lerk), R@mbo|MS (Commander)

For this match I’d predict lif // 0-4 [Kiez], though I hope the Latvians pull out a round from these, just to keep up on the points. Good luck both teams!

lif // 0-4 [Kiez]

^|TTS|^ - ^rawR?
The Hungarians are looking rather hungry for some points, whilst ^rawR? Are getting better every second. TTS looked like they were putting up a good fight against Kiez, using different tactics each round, it was just unfortunate on how they couldn’t pull out that last round. TTS are going to have to keep on the pressure in all matches if they want to survive, getting some points from ^rawR? Would help them A LOT, and I’ve no doubt that they will, especially with SoLDieR’s Fade combined with BlackEvils Lerk, their alien rounds are very nice to watch. For the marine rounds they just need to keep doing what they do, instead of changing tactics, this will help them focus on one main surprise attack, and hopefully bring them up high in the Group.

^rawR? Are playing a lot, and it wouldn’t be surprising if they put up a good fight against TTS, especially with sephywoth’s Marining and tomato’s Lerk, they will pull out atleast 1 of each side. Progressing every moment, these guys will be one of the strongest teams in the coming weeks. Good luck with the game guys!

Impact players:
TTS: BlackEvil (All round), Ve$e (Fade,Marine), SoLDieR (Fade)
^rawR?: tomato (Lerk), septhywoth (Marine), Doctor (Commander)

For this match I’d predict TTS 2-2 ^rawR?, I think both teams will win one of each side, however, I think both teams are also capable of taking a round, I will be watching this game guys!

TT2 2-2 ^rawR?

Good Luck with all games, I hope to see some teams move up the Group, and some surprises in-game. Go go Week 3!

I am really disgruntled by your display of pure angst. I am not going to deny it. I was a "cock" in own? but that wasn't too much of a problem. I was only 14-15 at the time at an age where you go through alot of changes. I whined I raged and I smacktalked... however to be singled out is a bit unfair as alot of members of the community at the time did this.

Ofc over the years I have matured and learned alot about player to player relations and attitude. Actually I am completely against offending other players unless it's in a jokey way nowadays as I think it's just retarded when people go off the wall on one.

However like usual Arj you are being a complete idiot not knowing the situation. Alty is a friend of James and they talk very frequently. If you ever came on vent when James is in our channel you would know it's very large spam of jokes and banter to one another normally with some small insultive backing to it. James calls me warthog.. I say he sucks steves private area... Alty goes "would you like some not funny with that fail?" and then pulls a joke off to james.

You'd also know that alty is a really really dramatic and funny guy on vent always taking the piss outta people and having the piss ripped out of him. He's a harmless guy that is actually really kind hearted and always wanting to help.

He also has, despite what the scene say, a very good skill level and is 20x better then you Arj will ever be. (Dig 1.)

Tweadle however has never been a "cock". He sometimes adds cocky little jokes or puns to a forum post or shoutbox but however never tries to offend people directly only make a joke out of them being idiots. However he like me has matured although I would say his ego has grown with it and he can be very boastfull and cocky but with good grounds to be. He is an intelligent guy, more so then you Arj (Dig 2.), and he loves NS which he has cotinued to improve at to a high skill.

Your seemless attacks at me nowadays are really really pointless. You do not know me Arj and maybe you never will. People change Arj... yet you have not. Your still cocky, arrogant and one of the biggest dicks to hit the surface of NS.

Has Mutli spawned into you then Arj? Cause last time I talked to him, he liked men. (no offence to mutli hes a really cool guy!)
