Predictions

First of all, I predict that this tournament will become very interesting and I am as exited for the games I am about to play myself as for spectating the other games.

Outcome
I’m pretty sure that Finland, Sweden and Netherlands will be fighting for the top spots. These three teams have lineups that should be able to win against the other nations without too much of a hassle.

For the rest of the teams, I think that Russia A looks strongest and will take the 4th place. Other than that, i’m not sure at all and will probably lose all my Goldrush cash during those games.

Strongest lineups
The lineups I think would be the best choice for each nation, ordered by the strongest lineup.

  1. Finland: fifi, fix, milton, blaze
  2. Sweden: XantoM, razor, riker, nabbe
  3. Netherlands: purity, reppie, murdoc, dragon
  4. Russia A: xpr, doom, blaze, gor
  5. Poland: cpe, billy, insane, blasp/derek/panczo/plast/slabi*
  6. United Kingdom: batfink, ser, marvelforce, keys
  7. Germany: spoink, Soma, 123, uig
  8. Denmark: Zalon, ParadokS, nEmo/eMbAh/Shadow/pwr*
  9. Hungary: zero, milamber/orion/crash/stevens*
  10. Czech: JohnNy_cz, Flamer, moris, itmik/shpeq/jebak/Fr4g/cuky*
  11. Russia B: VVD, bubliG, SS[3b]
  12. Austria: Defcon 5, slash/hoshi/watzl/ori*

* Don’t know which of the players who is the best.

.. or am I totally wrong? You tell me!

Btw: If you know when you are playing a game, please tell us in #qwdrama or add it to QW Schedule and it will be open for bets at Goldrush asap.

XantoM

Woot? Perhaps ParadokS recruited some guys from the xmas table.

can't wait for games of se/fi/nl between each other, as for a games vs. them :]

Zalon
Sunday 13th January, 2008

Hehe, it took some convincing to get him onboard, but atm our team is ParadokS, nEmo, Zalon, eMbAh, Shadow - and then i hope to get Face, Latency and tec/eclipse/y whatever he calls him self today to go for it too :)

I can't say I agree. I would without any doubt place UK as nr 4 since their lineup looks really strong. The lack of activity might be a problem though, but the polish players doesn't seem to be much more active. The russians are active, but I don't think they are skilled enough to beat UK.

How about a Rebellion of thunderish team for a Portugal/Spain mix team or something? :) Or maybe that's not allowed (though i think i read something about it once)

Åke Vader
Sunday 13th January, 2008

I definitely think UK is the fourth strongest team btw.

marv
Sunday 13th January, 2008

if i were denmark i would pick desmo hes quality. As for the uk team who signed that up we will see what happens if it does happen as hagge stated we are not active and i thought i quit? If the team needs me though ill try my best.

Åke Vader
Sunday 13th January, 2008

Another such combo could be denmark/norway to make things more interesting...but i guess the good norwegians aren't playing as much nowadays. :|

marv
Sunday 13th January, 2008

As for predictions i would go for sweden as razor is probably the smartest qw tdm player atm.

Hagge
Sunday 13th January, 2008

i'd have loved to see a division based nationscup ... because as it is now we will probably lose three games straight in the group and move into the playoffs as worst seeded to get smacked again by the number one seed :] well anyway ... gonna enjoy the spanking ;) gl!

cpe
Tuesday 15th January, 2008

Hagge
Tuesday 15th January, 2008
