This week put the final nail in the coffin for several squads playoffs hopes, and I'll give you a tiny run-down of each individual matchup.
1. Tavarous v. TOMB
An easy win for the new juggernaut that is T-Money$$$ Givens, he has been undefeated since the re-draft and his epic playing of his country stealing! Syria, China, and Germany were all on point for T-Money all grossing over 100pts each, and Saudi Arabia was slacking with a mere 69 points. The TOMB massively fell down with only Ukraine producing over 50 points wiht everyone else being in the 15-30 range. Not even the bonus KAHOOT points could save him. This move put Tavarous into 4th place in his division and a near cementing of a playoff spot, the TOMB has now fallen to 3-9 and is mathematically out.
2. The Ducks vs. Azeem
Another win for the ducks, with a 38 point victory. Iraq made the duck's week notching up 111 points, Cuba and Jordan were 80+ but Cyprus was weak. This win put the Ducks back on top of the entire league with an impressive 11-1 record, and he looks like he could roll through the divisional playoffs. Azeem has fallen to 7-5 and 5th in his division. He needs to put up big points next week and a loss from Anything but East Side (Helena) to have some sort of a shot....but it looks unlikely.
3. Teghan v. Helena
Teghan notches another win, and is looking re-vitalized after the re-draft (although she missed the chance for bonus points from Friday's KAHOOT). Iran pushed Teghan to the win, being the highest scoring country of the week (171 points). With her win, she is mathematically in 4th, and cannot fall out of the playoffs (unless Lucas has some pro-Jack shenanigans up his sleeve). Helena is still sitting in 3rd and will probably stay in the playoff spot (but will fall to 4th if Tavarous wins next week).
4. Aaron's Black Crackers vs. the GDI
Aaron destroyed Lucas....Stays in Second.....nothing much to see here.
5. Macallaster vs The Tsunami
This was a big match and don't let the 441-612 score line (in favor of the Tsunami) fool you. The double or nothing bonus for Thomas (who was dominant on both the review quiz, and the random Pokemon one) really helped him out, he would have lost without it.....The MILFs now fall to 2nd in the league, and stays barely ahead of the ABCs in the division, but will still be in the playoffs.
6. Axis of Evil vs Smith
Yawn....Jack wins, by 40 points, both teams have fallen out of playoff contention.
7. Adrienne vs. Katie
Don't be Upsetti....Have some Spaghetti is victorious by 50 points over "I just want extra credit...." Katie is now out of the playoffs (but sits in 5th in her division) and Adrienne rises to a respectable 6-6, but sits on the bottom of her division.
In the First worlds, the playoff spots are locked and nothing will change next week (check out the main page), in the LDC's, Alec and Aaron have locked spots, Adrienne, Azeem and Smith are probably out..but who knows.
For week 13, I have the following predictions
Anything but East Side over the TOMB
Ducks over Adrienne
Teghan over Azeem
Lauren over Smith
T-Money$$$ over the Tsunami
the ABC's over the Axis of Evil
Macalester over Katie
LUCAS WINS AGAIN WITH THE BYE.....but still had an embarrassing season!
Potential change-ups for the playoffs will be disclosed tomorrow...
That is all...Good Night, and Good Luck!
