Week 1 predictions

Premier league
The Wheat Bearers (0-0-0) vs. Lucky (0-0-0) -by lump`
Impact Players:
The Wheat Bearers: morphz (Fade, Marine), Ben (Abusive Leader), wltrs (Fade, Marine), Avex (Whatever he ends up doing)
lucky: Purple (Exploitive Gorge, Comm), Ernos (Pancake), Naxu (Marine)

A battle of all ages this one. The Wheat Bearers are the new boys on the block but also quite the opposite. A recently formed team with a wide range of players that have never been together as a group before, despite combo’s of the players in various other clans such as TN, <3 and BTE. With players like Avex, Dw, Ebnar and wltrs we are stretching right back to the 1st days of NS. (I’m not talking about low skilled for their time either.) Lucky are similar for their individuals experience with NS, they are a collection the majority of Finns who go back furthest in NS history out of those active; only recently reforming for the ENSL.

Both teams have not appeared greatly active before leading up to this match up but Natural Teamwork should be a given for both with their times played together in the past. Both teams having a large variety of skilled players to suit any roles they may need to fill in game. Many of the players in both teams have played together with less than lucky and one of the lucky players even being in lessthanthree for a long run of their history. I feel both teams will know what to expect from each other and this may force unusual tactics from lucky to try and catch wb off guard. Knowing Ben I would expect him to stick to what he knows best and go for the power of his players to outplay lucky.

The skill level of individuals such as morphz, Avex and wltrs will play a large role in wb’s game and in my opinion; make them the much stronger team in the match up. I have a feeling it may take a while for the old skill levels of the previous lucky team to come back so we can expect more from them later in this season. Right now, I’m confident in wb taking a comfortable win.
Prediction: The Wheat Bearers 4 – 0 Lucky

Semper Fi (0-0-0) vs Knife (0-0-0) -by ben
Impact Players:
Semper Fi: PhOeNiX (Fade, Marine), Sublime (Lerk), Mt (Fade, Marine)
Knife: b1 (comm, skulk), mu (Fade, Marine), Hickz (Whine)

At first glance everyone is thinking 4-0 knife, right. And you know, you're probably not wrong but I have my doubts right now and know from playing with Semper Fi that their team contains a few talented individuals. For most of Semper this is their first experience in the big leagues of NS and what an opponent to get, ENSL season 1 runner up (UL), UGL and CB champions. They'll be counting on the experience of their commander Lump to guide them and their allstars listed above to bring their game to this level.

When you look at Knife and the experience you have to wonder whats going to stop them winning ENSL this season. Unfortunately for them though, a lot of their big names are either coming back from a serious stint of inactivity or aren't that active right now. For example Fana, a key player in knife is in the army and can only play weekends and b1's availability is lacking too through no fault of his own. Cheez, wzza and zallvan are all coming back from huge periods of not playing so I'm not expecting their best from them.
In my opinion it's squarely on the shoulders of frg and mu. They play key roles in the alien round and both will be looking to bring their stuff to the table.

The big question is: Can knife step up their game back to their old level or will Semper Fi be able to capatilise on their inactive roster issues and show us all what they're capable of. In my opinion this is closer than it looks.

insane (0-0-0) vs. Levitacus (0-0-0) -by lump`
Impact Players:
insane: aZa (Comm), tutu- (Large Baguette), animz (Fade), Nirgal (Onos), FlashNaabZ (Marine)
Levitacus: zaCK (Marine), Tm (Marine), Scale (Lerk), Hopsu (Missing hitbox)

Insane staying with their consistent activity level which seems to have not changed for as long as they have been around earning them some awesome teamwork! Their unusual but well planned tactics involving lots of early motion tracking or maybe 2 lerks’ are known to be suprisingly effective; so we may even expect more to surprises the masses from them this season.

Levitacus going from a relatively unknown clan and then taking leaps and strides to get into the Prem of the 1st ENSL Seasons now have a very firm hold. They have always had very role specific players which work out well for them such as Scale's impressive lerking and Talis with a steady hand on a SG.

Both teams have recruited new additions over the last season with Shivan and animz coming back to activity for insane and Levi stealing a few old saunamen players to boost their experience. I see this being a good game to watch if both teams perform. Insane have seemed a little more active of later weeks and I can see their teamwork giving them an advantage when needed but still the skill level of Levitacus' players can't be ignored. I'll say 3-1 to insane but on that note but it could easily go the other way if Levi have been practicing more that I have seen.
Prediction: Insane 3-1 Levitacus

Division 1 - by Skyice
Selected predictions-
Dt vs own?
-own? have made some major rostor changes since there outstanding performance in season 2. In season 2 they were led by UnK who has never failed to amaze me on how he made a bunch of noobs into one of todays top clans. This season they are led by cream(1337) ReD and Tobold. I feel that without UnK as own?'s clan leader they will not perform as good as they could do.
-Dt have been around for quite some time now and they have never failed to put up a fight against the many clans they have played against.
In there match i would expect a draw or a win from Dt.
Dt have always been a strong clan led by Lance. Own? have had some recent rostor changes which i feel will bring there skill level down from last season.
Prediction: Dt 2-2 own?

Division 2 - by Skyice
Selected predictions-
Evil vs Clan Miau
-Evil are well known throughout the eu ns community. They have trained up alot of todays good nsplayers. Evil's squad consists of a few well known top level players and a briliant (thoe sometimes annoying) clan leader. Evil seem to have gone almost "inactive" the past few weeks which may damage the clans team play.
-clan miau are one of the many crazy spantard filled clans in todays community. Clan miau seem to have some rostor changes which could make them a challange for Evil.
If Evil stick with sensible tactics and play at there top level they could just about pull off a 4-0 on miau... BUT knowing Evil and there strange yet delightful irish players, they will try to pull off a gorge rush or something impossible like that. (thoe Evil have won pcw's with the gorge rush tactic!)
Prediction: Evil 3-1 Miau

Division 3 - by Skyice
Selected predictions-
in memory of vs incoming
- i have played against in memory of about 2 times now and both times they have shown amazing team work with there alien side. There marine side is weak and lacks team work at times, but i have no doubt that at the end of this season they will have marine side sorted as well.
- incoming are a strong team and i think they will put up a good fight against in memory of.
I think both teams will do good on there alien rounds but not so great with there marines
Prediction in memory of 2-2 incoming

Division 4 - by Skyice
selected predictions-
Quaxy vs Zick
- Quaxy are a very strong team and they show briliant team work with both Alien and marine sides. I am more than confident that Quaxy are going to show the other teams in div 4 how its done.
- Zick are a new clan to the ensl and i welcome them and wish them good luck through out the season. Thoe Zick are a new clan they have recruited 2 strong and experianced players into there team, Reflection and Destiny. Im sure they will pass there experiance and knowlage onto there team mates and help them through div 4. Thoe zick have a few good skilled members i don't think that it is enough to pull them to victory.
Prediction Quaxy 3-1 Zick


Thank you for reading my predictions. Just remember that they are my opinion only so if i have predicted you clan a lose, don't get angry! its based on what i know about the clan already!!.

Also, i will do the predictions for all the clans i missed in week 2.

Oh YeaH! HF aLL ^^
By: sherpa ( cisequaltothree ) on 17/Jan/06 02:43
Maybe bash teams a little less?

I see...

"clan miau are one of the many crazy spantard filled clans in todays community"

...as being particularly offensive.

Also, yea, go over the grammar ("I" instead of "i" etc...).

But not a bad first post. At least you to didn't fall into my pitfall of listing players' by their real names. How was I supposed to know Thibault Frigg was French slang "Your Momma"?!

Anyway, IMO:

Dt > own?

Evil = Miau

In Memory Of > incoming

Quaxy > Zick

And Prem:

s&m lucky

Insane > Levitacus
By: sherpa ( cisequaltothree ) on 17/Jan/06 02:45
Irony of criticizing your grammar when I can't spell myself? VERY HIGH INDEED.
By: weezer on 17/Jan/06 02:55

By: weezer on 17/Jan/06 03:33

By: anderval on 17/Jan/06 05:08
can you blame them? look at the rage! someone call fananana - predictions will never be the same again, i.e. legible

oh and:

s&m insane

wb > lucky
By: GibbZ ( 9L ) on 17/Jan/06 09:42
Sherpa

By: CAssassin ( Saunamen ) on 17/Jan/06 10:10
Lol and Skyice seems to continue where Sherpa left it , tough this seasons opponents should be harder, gonna be intresting.

By: ben on 18/Jan/06 16:02
Levitacus (0-0-0) vs Insane (0-0-0)

Impact Players:

Levitacus: Invasion (Fade, Marine), Scale (Lerk), Tm (Marine)

Insane: Shi (Fade), tutu (fade?/marine), Ray (loller lerk, Marine)

Now here's a good match up. Last season they played and insane won 4-0 but levitacus have a habit of being on and off. 3-1 vs storm - the champs - last season shows that they're really not to be taken lightly and I think Insane would be foolish to not prepare well for this match. An interesting fact for you all here: Levi are the only team to have featured in all 3 seasons. In season 1 they came third behind lessthanthree and knife, in season 2 third behind storm and insane. This season I imagine they'll be wanting a well deserved shot at the grande finale themselves.

Insane have really strengthened their roster this season and they're no longer reliant on lerks because all their fades are hideous. tutu out of nowhere has learnt to fade, animz has returned and shi of assorted clan fame has joined. These guys, backed up by Ray -who has hopefully learnt some self control about flying into vast amounts of weaponry- make their alien round a formidable force.

Levi are going to need to use all their resources to beat these guys but it's not an impossible task, zack, invasion, Tm, Tane and tmk are all solid marines and they have solid lifeforms as alien in Scale as lerk and inva as fade. I think if they do their homework on Insane's tactics from previous seasons they'll have a real chance.

(2) Levi - (2) Insane - Either team capable of the 3-1.
By: sherpa ( cisequaltothree ) on 18/Jan/06 18:20
What the shit? Proper nice predictions Benjie. I was expecting something like "you all suck. 2-2 for everyone" from the world's only adrenaline fade.

Not bad Ben, just in a exam period and was stoned when replying last night, will do yours today.
By: GibbZ ( 9L ) on 18/Jan/06 20:23
3-1 to semper fi me thinks tho =/

or 4-0 depends. Knife have been playing not as well as their roster makes them out to be.

No seriously good job everyone, something > nothing. Peopole that don`t do anything have no right to criticize. :

Yes the hell we can, shut up tard.
By: Fana ( Archaea ) on 18/Jan/06 23:14
So why do you keep calling me a tard whenever you make an ensl comment?

Pick:

A. If you're trying to be funny, you're not. You have to know someone to make ironic jokes like that.

B. If you're just being a dick, well, it's obvious who the tard is.

Thank you, good night.

lol, Talis has gone to army.

People still think he's good with sg. Note that Talis has been inactive since last summer. Don't but him to predictions, HE IS NOT PLAYING ANYWAYS.

He lost his skill when surftown combat servers stopped to excist. (Talis's only practicing place.)
By: anderval on 19/Jan/06 01:34
stop making sense please

TALIS WILL GET YOU WITH SG
By: Iots ( el'pheer ) on 19/Jan/06 01:53
Excuse me, but when did i say that i was trying to be funny in your eyes, Fana?

And yeah, retard claims like that, just couldnt pass, sorry.
By: Iots ( el'pheer ) on 19/Jan/06 01:55
Oh and yeah, Lump and Ben should continue doing those predictions, that is if the tard isnt going to step in also.
By: GibbZ ( 9L ) on 19/Jan/06 02:06
"Wtf mates. Own in div1 though they never won us (Insert)? We won them like 3-1, 4-0 and then there was one even game 2-2 because of christmas inactivity. Yeah no offense own, they are nice ppl but this sucks. :I"

Yes jiriki but own suprised the league last tiem didnt they.

First matches were looses but own pulled it together and with activity and teamwork and with some help and shiznit they won div 2 against all ods.

Insert are not good enough for prem div nor are they bad enough for div 2. Fair enuf to be in div1.

Own are not good enuf for prem div but they won div2 last time and clearly earned there place in div 1. KTHX.

Okay thankyou.
By: 360ms on 19/Jan/06 02:15
We werent saying Talis was amazing, I just used him as an example for the set role players.
By: weezer on 19/Jan/06 02:51
those 'set roles' arent as obvious as they may have once been, although scale still lerks
By: 360ms on 19/Jan/06 05:13
As i said i haven't seen you play in a long time :P
By: Fana ( Archaea ) on 20/Jan/06 17:19
"P.S. fragged any bootcamp buddies yet?"

Negative, but some guy hid an AG3 (automatic rifle) between his bed sheets in one of the other troops, and their sergeant shouted at them all for like 1 hour out in the freezing cold (it's like -20 effective degrees here). Hilarity.
By: sublime ( Perfect Peckers ) on 20/Jan/06 19:40
MINUS TWENTY EFFECTIVE DEGREES MEIGHTS.
