'Lanche 5-3 in the prelims, hello Sunday!



Since the forum goes through points of death and bleakness I am going to write a hope onto what happens.

My opinions on this event:
In their bracket going into it they are ranked 4th over all, behind Ironmen, Joy, and Blast. They might have a slight disadvantage coming into the event for they as well as everyone just came off of playing MAO. I think the team to beat, believe it or not, in the prelims is going to be Farside. After their play at the last event, they will be coming in hungry and most of the team has hit practice hard, and has not had to train for X-ball to go on top of the training for tampa. Especially against Avalanche. That game may be one of the biggest games to watch the whole event. The ex-Lanche boys taking on the Avalanche 3.0? We will see, I would put my chips on Avalanche though, they are deffinately "gellin'."
Another thing to look at is the team itself. With the addition of Frank the Tank they have one of the deadliest line ups for 7 man. That is if Frank did more than just geust. I am going to go out on the limb and assume Ed has locked him down (like he has for Mayo, Tiljak, and Markowski). I am assuming he has them contracted now, has had two of the best teams walk out on him and I bet he is not looking for that to happen again.
Going into Tampa they are easily the hottest team, who is looking to upset their whole bracket. They all have something to prove, and look for one of the hungriest teams you have seen hit the field in the past years.

Bring one home Avalanche!

My prediction for the prelims for Avalanche:

Avalanche beat the Raiders in three
Avalnache beat the naughty dogs in two
Avalanche loose to Joy in three
Avalanche beat the Americans in two
Avalanche beat Farside in two
Avalanche beat ironmen in three
Avalanche loose to Blast in two
Avalanche beat Image in three

*Note these are my opinions and thoughts, only to spark activity in thses forums*

I pretty much agree with everything you said but i think naughty dogs will finish 4th and lanche will fight their ***** off and earn 3rd. I know lance didnt make the cut AT HB but neither did the dogs and Blast got by on the seems oon the pants. I also think they are hungry as all and the newer players they have picked up could very well have gotten use to the new teammates.

It will be close between the dogs and blast I never undersetimate the dogs even tho they seemed to be in a bit of a struggle of lates. But if thety get to playing their A game we all know how great they can play. knowing how consistant blast/legacy squad has been since the long/shows merge, they better do just that. It will be a damn good fight for 4th. And for what ever reason i get this dumb gut feeling they might not do so great [blast]. I am well aware of their victory at HB but with the way the pro division is nowadays it difficult as ever to repeat, but i will not be surprise if they do prove me wrong and lay the smack down on everybody.

Althoguh im fairly postive raiders will fall beneth 4th, i think they will be strong aswell. I am tempted to put them higher but im am unsure if they can get their Quest to shoot as they like. The worst problems a team can have, are gun problems. As it seems to me that they been having issues with that and its been holding them down, so the raiders will be my sleeper pick for this tourny if they get to shoot back.

My view on the top four teams coming out of the prelims:

Avalanche 6-2
Ironmen 5-3
Joy 5-3
Farside 5-3

Actually I just checked the NPPL site for game days, all prelims are on saturday. So if Avalanche can keep their speed up the whole team they will easily be the team everyone is chasing. There is no reason they could not go 8-0 going into the quarter finals, but that is near impossible anymore.
Wish we could get a team member to comment on these topics... maybe.

Bring it home Avalanche.

Tiljak getting shot is what lost it for them. Can't go blaming him, random stuff happens all the time
