Week 2 review

Things have become somewhat jumbled up in the past week with schedules over running. The premier division should be in week 4 right now but the reality of the situation is that this is week 3. As such: Here are the week 3 predictions and a week 2 run down.

Week 2 really highlighted the equal level of skill currently present in the premier division with knife tying lucky and Insane tying the wheat bearers. Clan's inactivity and inability to get a PCW even when they have 6 is really taking its toll and can clearly be seen. For example in the wheat bearers vs Insane: neither team took their marine round on caged yet stormed to a win on veil. Unable to scrim regularly on a map rarely played saw two strong marine games reduced to rubble by lack of map knowledge.

Unfortunately I haven't seen the demos for lucky vs knife so I can't draw any conclusions from this match. If anyone has these demos then please upload them. Whilst not surprising, it's somewhat annoying that despite there being 50+ specs you were all too dimwitted to record.

Levitacus sky rocketed to the top of the premier division at the end of the week and became the first team to take home a 4-0 win over Semper Fi. Semper appear to have done a boonsquad, or a rage.ns. The burden of potential was too much and they submarined. Hard. With hindsight I can say I'm not surprised but way to ruin my predicting record.

Week 3 Predictions - By Benjamin Bunny

Levitacus (1-1-0) vs lucky (0-0-2)
Impact Players:
Levitacus: Inva (Fade, Marine), Tane (Marine, skulk), Scale (Lerk)
Lucky: Peach (comm), Citrus (Fade), Ernos (Lerk)

The Finnish community has just seen it's national team become champions of
the world. This week their "domestic" clans can fight it out for the title of best in Finland. Last week Levi stomped Semper Fi into the ground and looked far stronger than they did in week 1 where Insane made a mockery of them. Like all clans they've not been scrimming much, if at all lately, but they have the advantage of being together for nearly 2 years now.

The lucky players, whilst being a top clan in the past, have all quit NS for extensive periods of time and are yet to, infact probably will never refind their previous glory. However Peach has remained forever as one of the best comms in the EU and as such their marine round is something to be feared.

The maps are particularly interesting for this match up with finnish teams famously liking origin. I'd not be at all surprised to see levitacus experiment with sensory and there's no way in hell we won't see jetpacks in one marine round before 7 minutes have passed. I don't think lucky have what it takes to finally win a match, but they'll definately take rounds.

Levitacus (2) - Lucky (2)

Insane vs Semper Fi
Impact Players:
Insane: Ish (fade, marine), tutu (fade, marine), Ray (lerk, marine)
Semper Fi: Pho (Fade, marine), lagga (shotgun)

Not much to right here. 4-0 Insane. They've beaten levitacus who just destroyed semper in week 2, and they've tied the wheatbearers. Semper are
the only team to not at least tie one match and have take 1 out of 8 rounds. I don't see last season's runners up dropping a round, even though they're inactive and hardly scrimmed for week 2, semper are no better off.

Insane (4) - Semper Fi (0)

AFAIK I thought that as Sherpa practically ran theleague at the time he put s&m in that div. Was i wrong?

Well, he compared the clan to two others who specifically asked not to be put in the prem. =/

I had say for both involvement with bs and s&m, neither wanted to be prem. Division sizes and other skill levels are deciding factors.

I was quite happy for s&m to be put in the Premiership, as I felt I was ready to lead a clan against Europe's elite (I'm still surprised at how much I learnt in the month I spent with TeamUK, despite having over 3 years experience with NS).

Though I had nothing to do with season 3 division placement.

Technically, I was only a predictor; though I did do a lot of admin duties to help Mike.

I'd like to think that given the chance, I would have had an involvement in placement, but I had ragequit by then.
