GPS vs BSK

Unless Soul practices enough and figures out how to play on that map with his team, it should be an easy 2-0 for GPS.

GPS 2-0-0

PEE vs SXP

Unless Dranzer plays his game instead of League and razor plays on his PC, it should be an easy 2-0 for SXP. If both play, then it's going to be a tie.

SXP 2-0-0

SUC vs QMP

Match of the week in my opinion. This map favours QMP's frag heavy power, but SUC's synergy is very strong overall. This is going to be a tie.

1-1-1

BST vs TPT
Game of the week! BST's looking as impeccable as expected, but even though TPT started off with a disappointing tie against QMP, Tai and Caution have long proved their ability to mess up the rhythm of even the most stacked teams. With Tai/Caution vs RoSKing/Infer taking centre stage in a TDM-esque fragfest, I believe the deciding factor will boil down to how much Legion and SkullRush/Dastan can outplay each other. Had this been a playoff match, I'd give TPT the edge here, but given how we are still on Week 2 of the regular season, BST should be the favourite to take this against a TPT that is still trying to find its footing.
BST 2-0 TPT (in 3)

PEE vs SXP
Coming off a heartbreaking loss, SXP gets a lucky break this week by facing off against Razor's uncoordinated team. PEE's only hope is to play Dranzer, so they can stand up a fight frag power-wise, since Razor is not much of a fragger himself. Although, even if PEE were to find a way to practise regularly, it is still awfully unlikely that SXP will drop any games this weke.
SXP 2-0 PEE

SUC vs QMP
SUC came out strong in week 1, securing a hard-earned win against SXP to start the season. QMP, on the other hand, is also coming into week 2 with positive momentum on their side, as they made a superb comeback to deny TPT their win, exceeding expectations. This is looking like the most even match-up of the week, and if every player engages their clutch factor, this should end as the second tie of the season.
SUC 1-1-1 QMP

GPS vs BSK
Oh hi Stab
BSK lots of flags-a few flags GPS

BST vs TPT
R against R, should be a good game, hard to predict. I think the map style might favor TPT slightly, so I'm giving them the edge.
TPT 2-1


PEE vs SXP
Impossible to bet on PEE against a talented team like SXP until we've seen their full lineup with a little practice. PEE too much of an unknown right now.
SXP 2-0

SUC vs QMP
The new map makes this tough to predict without seeing any practice, but I think SUC is the favorite given how much of a battle-tested, fully developed product they already are. Still, there's a lot of talent on QMP and I wouldn't be surprised at all if they prove me wrong.
SUC 2-1

BST vs TPT
Look for BST to surprise everyone and roll over TPT fairly easily.
2-0 BST

GPS vs BSK
This one looks close. I think the openness of the map favors BSK a bit more, but an Alt_Stab, Dev, and Denzoa lineup is going to be very hard to beat. GPS will have to be crafty if they want to pull ahead.
Gps 2-1

PEE vs SXP

for me, yo

SUC vs QMP
This is a map new to WDL and it looks to favor a runner's craftiness. Look for Dragon and Ralphis to come out running, and for a relatively ineffective mid from both sides, due to the map itself. This one can go either way, but I think I like SUC a bit more.

2-1 SUC

GPS vs BSK

Even though it was against a team clearly not ready, I like how GPS looked in Week 1. BSK has to do a lot to , in comparison, make up for their defeat against BST. I actually think this map fits both teams pretty well, so I'll predict GPS in a close one cause I think they have a LITTLE more fragging power.

GPS 2-1

PEE vs SXP

SXP is coming off a hard fought loss to SUC, and despite their defeat I think their ability was clearly on display. In comparison....well, let's just see if PEE's very best actually shows up this week, since anything short will be easy pickings for SXP.

SXP 2-0

SUC vs QMP

Easily the game of the week (apart from mine lol). On paper, I think these teams are evenly matched, and I think their performances from Week 1 speak for themselves on how potent they can be. Just off their overall experience (since the map itself is brand new), I have to side with SUC here, but an upset by no means would surprise me.

SUC 2-1

BST vs TPT

GPS vs BSK

BSK has a good bounce back after solid practice all week. However, it's just not enough. BSK is a good squad that is learning what works for them - GPS is playoff ready.

GPS 2-1

PEE vs SXP

PEE seems to be getting it together, but SXP features some of the best players in the league without the hiccups. Razor's silence has been deafening, but the rest of the team seems to be putting their best foot forward leading up to game time. With all that said, this is a hard week to pull it together for PEE. SXP wins in 2.

SXP 2-0

BST vs TPT

The North American main event. Two legendary captains from the same clan trot their squads out for a big week 2 battle. BST has an opportunity to cement their 1st place position, but even TPT can take the top spot with a two round win. This should be a great game featuring all great players. Since I played TPT in practice and thought they were the hardest squad I faced on this map, I'm going to have to say they narrowly edge out BST.

TPT 2-1
