RGL-Main

Swiftwater has come and swiftly went. Now teams must change gears back to koth. This newish koth map provides a new challenge for teams to overcome, while still being a straightforward koth map.

Week 2 Review


Luigi's REAL Italian Ice vs As Foretold by Rayman5000

Prediction: GL;HF
Outcome: 2-0 Foretold by Rayman5000
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

The battle of the perfect game teams. J_peg along with shohh were again able to prove an effective flank combo. Panther was able put out massive amounts of damage from the 10 Kritzkrieg charges their team had. The potential overreliance on the Kritzkrieg may have been their downfall, being unable to take a successful uber trade.

This week’s MVP: J_peg


The Garage Band vs Oprah Winfrey Network

Prediction: 2-1 The Garage Band
Outcome: 1-2 Oprah Winfrey Network
Logs: First Half Second Half Thrid Half Full Match

A close game between The Garage Band and Oprah Winfrey Network, except for the first round. The first round consisted of Oprah Winfrey Network hard holding on second, only to cap first faster than The Garage Band. Comparing kills, things are the same with the main difference being rk beating out Thot Patrol Captain.

MVP: rk


HOLY PYSCHO vs Swift Inc.

Prediction: 0-2 Swift Inc.
Outcome: 2-0 HOLY PYSCHO
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

This is certainly an outcome I was not expecting. Hael was able to shut down Swift Inc’s pushes, scoring 8 frags on VAVLIE. Unfortunately for spaghetti, his superb performance was not enough to keep Swift Inc in the game.

MVP: Hael


Burnt Toast vs No.3 Pencils

Prediction: 0-2 No.3 Pencils
Outcome: 0-2 No.3 Pencils
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

As expected No.3 Pencils made swift work of Burnt Toast. Unfortunately Burnt Toast was apparently dealing with roster issues as well, which certainly could not have helped. milk had an absolute field day, with a K/D of 39-8.

MVP: milk


We 4fit vs Loud Noises

Prediction: 1-2 Loud Noises
Outcome: 1-2 Loud Noises
Logs: First Half Second Half Third Half Full Match

A close game between two lower Main teams. cray went insane dropping 72 frags over the course of the match. Poor Theoretical Spy was able to top frag on his team, even scoring double digit frags on 4 classes.

MVP: cray


ANTHRAX vs Neanderthal Gaming

Prediction:1-2 Neanderthal Gaming
Outcome: 2-0 ANTHRAX
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

After their recent loss of vohh, ANTHRAX proves they will not be taken lightly. Whip pulled out 43 frags and almost hit 20k damage. New pickup Fordo along with ghost was able to keep the pressure up, both scoring 33 kills apiece.

MVP: Whip


Plan B vs Zam and retards

Prediction: 2-0 Plan B
Outcome: 2-0 Plan B (FFW)

As expected, Zam and retards were unable to play, resulting in a forfeit win for Plan B.



Week 3 Predictions


As Foretold by Rayman5000 vs HOLY PSYCHO MOTW

Prediction: GL;HF

Both teams have momentum coming off their recent 2-0 wins on Swiftwater. It will be interesting who is able to carry that momentum further.

Players to watch: j_peg, [Heavy] hael


Oprah Winfrey Network vs No.3 Pencils

Prediction: 2-4 No.3 Pencils

Cascade has a lot of open space milk can and will take advantage of. rk has been absolutely killing it in scrims lately and will certainly be a thorn in No.3 Pencils side. I believe this match will come down to who each team handles these 2 players. No.3 Pencils has an overall better combo; however, I still expect the rounds to be pretty close.

Players to watch: rk, milk


The Garage Band vs ANTHRAX

Prediction: 2-4 ANTHRAX

This match is going to be won or lost by their team’s combo. Exquizit should be able to get a plethora of frags on koth. Whip proved last week he had what it takes to be an effective EU demo in the NA scene. Outside of the combo I believe ANTHRAX has overall better players, which should give them the edge to win the match.

Players to watch: Exquizit, Whip


Luigi's REAL Italian Ice vs Plan B

Prediction: 4-0 Luigi's REAL Italian Ice

If Plan B can shut down pantherr, then they may have the opportunity to win a round or 2, however I see this as unlikely. saturation is a wild card in this match and could get some important picks to turn it around.

Players to watch: pantherr, saturation


Loud Noises vs Burnt Toast

Prediction: 4-3 Loud Noises

Provided Burnt Toast does not have roster issues again this week, this should be a pretty close match. Cascade being a bigger map, devoi will have more room to work and get behind Burnt Toast. Assuming Jazz2jz is playing sniper, they should be able to put some work in as well.

Players to watch: devoi, Jazz2jz


We 4fit vs Swift Inc

Prediction: 0-4 Swift Inc

Unfortunately, We 4fit is going against one of the most experienced teams in the division. Swift Inc should make short work of this match.

Players to watch: Theoretical Spy, spaghetti


Neanderthal Gaming vs Bye Week

Neanderthal Gaming gets a much-needed bye week to refocus themselves and possibly untilt.
