Tai vs QMP
While I wouldn't call this the "game of the week", I would certainly call this the most interesting match-up that should not be missed. Tai drafted a tried-and-true combination of a top player + 2 priv regulars, while Dsparil went for the 100% European juice, a first in WDL history. Tai's team looks like the favourite to win, with his superb D pressure in MAP24 and Caution's elusive Mid/O play, but QMP's team chemistry and fragging power might prove to be a secret weapon to throw their opponents off. In the end, however, I doubt QMP will be tapping into their full potential just yet, as Langrenus and im1 are still quite new to Odamex, and Dsparil and Dragon might not be enough to hold off Tai's team in this map.
Tai 2-0 QMP

SXP vs SUC
With both teams starting off the season with the classic RalphBones match-up, this will be the game of the week. Ralphis has brought back his team from last season, while Bones brought back his own team from the season before that, so rest assured their chemistries will be on-point for this match. This map seems to reward crafty, tricky runs more than it rewards runs based on raw pressure, so for this map in particular, I would say SXP has the edge here.
SXP 2-1 SUC

PEE vs GPS
Stab has drafted what I personally consider to be one of this season's strongest teams on paper, so Razor's first obstacle will be an intimidating one. turSKA and Dranzer are talented players in their own right, but PEE's team play will need to be heavily worked on if they plan on standing a chance against GPS. Stab is no stranger to playing with Dev or Starrk, so he should struggle a lot less making his team composition break whatever ideas Razor's team might try to pull.
GPS 2-0 PEE (in 3)

Tai vs QMP
Tai and Caution should make an incredible duo. Given their fragpower, I see them controlling the map very well. Look for them to surprise QMP this week.
Tai 2-0 QMP

SXP vs SUC


PEE vs GPS
With a team of 3 established captains (past and present), Stab may have had one of the best drafts this season. I can't see them losing a single round to PEE. Look for them to completely skate through PEE this week.

GPS 2-0 PEE in an blowout

SXP vs SUC
I've never known a SUC team to get out of the gates slowly, and this year they're returning with virtually the same lineup as last season's 4-1 team, so I think that might give them the advantage in an otherwise impossible to call matchup of what I'm predicting will be two of this season's best teams. SUC in 3 rounds.

BST vs BSK
On paper alone I'd give a slight edge to BST here, but OurHero and Halloween have both been ripping it up in privs, and I think this is a map where upsets can happen. As long as both teams have D locked down, it becomes an elongated grind where one small mistake can decide the whole game. BST in 3.

TPT vs QMP
Tai and Dastan play so well together here, I don't see this team losing. TPT in 2.

All blue teams win this week.

TPT vs QMP
QMP rolls their all Euro-squad out to a week 1 victory. Tai leaves D and blames his team.

QMP 2-0

SXP vs SUC

 :rock

BSK vs BST

I originally thought that BSK would get blown out - after having practiced with them, I think they will put up a good fight. BST still pulls it out.

2-1 BST

PEE vs GPS

Experience prevails in this game. PEE has a good showing, but GPS moves into week 2 with a win.

2-0 GPS

SXP vs SUC

A classic matchup of Ralphis/Bones for sure, with familiar pairing (Bones/Rude + Ralphis/JWarrier) that strike fear into any opponent. Wouldn't surprise me if this is a close match, but I think SXP will be slightly craftier than SUC and that will make the difference.

SXP 2-0

BSK vs BST

I'm not gonna pretend I really think this match is in doubt, but I do wanna see how BSK does with Starrk, who apparently hasn't practiced much, if at all. Overall tho, I think BST is a very solid team with 3 guys who are well-rounded and can probably play any position on this map. I'm happy to be proven wrong, but I think BST rolls easy.

BST 2-0

GPS vs PEE

You know what? I think we all know who probably should win, but a certain someone wants to underestimate my power so um I dunno. For PEE, we have a rookie captain in Razor looking to prove he really can hang with the big boys and a crafty runner (a good fit for a map like this), and then Dranzer and Turk who are a good fragging combo, and have been around the block for a while. IFFF they play the map correctly (and Dranzer keeps his head on straight), they could absolutely be a problem for GPS, as established as their team is (shoutout to fellow GDA champ Denz!!). I think GPS should be prepared for a long fight. And while I'm at it, props to Razor for taking the reins as a captain when many pussied out elected not to.

GPS 2-1 (I'm not THAT petty)

TPT vs QMP

See ya Saturday:

SXP vs SUC
bones did a great draft 10/10 IGN Masterpiece, rude is just great and really handsome and that makes him an absolute doomgod. Ralphis recreated the SUC of last season, and well... tbf, ralph and jwar are kinda decent, but i dont see them doing much without me tho!! and souler made us lose in the semifinals... anyway....(uh oh and i wont even waste my time with hugo...please)
SXP 2-0

BST vs BSK
BST is a really versatile team, they prob got this, but Zakken told me that his team is doing really great too, but i feel like its SO WRONG too believe in my country friend...sorry Alan <3.......
BST 2-0

GPS vs PEE
GPS has DenZoa and PEE has razor..
Den can literally lift the whole PEE team with only two fingers, beat the hell out of them denzoa u r so hot man marry me i wanna touch these muscles everynight
GPS 2-0
