top tier analysis, well done :thumbsup:Gotta give anaconja a taste of his own medicine and do an euology of how the WUoG and the Think-a-Ton Crew didn't even make it to semis:

Okay, as we can see here, it's quite clear the TaTC didn't spend their budget quite well. A good start was around their leaders in decently known Pet Modders Sticky Fingaa and Lord Zorz (the latter which formerly gave leadership to the Turn 1 Booomers in the previous PMPL), and from there they managed to get Earl, who is a good strategist and player even beyond the tiers he mains, but beyond that, some basic research from the past PMPL sheet shows that they overpaid a lot on players with questionable precedents, which isn't helped by some of the players being newcomers this PMPL round, and thus one can claim at least some had difficulty getting customized.
From here, it's clear some of their most expensive players got significantly more Ls than Ws, and it sure isn't helped by activity Ls being called on them multiple times, which implies that their leaders didn't do a good job moderating their players to at least push for a substitute in such cases, and so overall there were problems everywhere, but at least Earl didn't get hax'd to death like the past PMPL.

Now, onto the Union Workers of Gensokyo, Anaconja (who led this team the past PMPL) + Adem apparently is a potent combination from what I've heard, and so the two being the managers of the team sounds good on paper, they also managed to get into their team a variety of decently known users from the OM and Pet Mods communities, but from there the issue is clear, not only were they unable to pick some of the better players they had last PMPL as other teams got luckier, it also seems the Earl curse went on to G-Luke instead, who apparently was suggesting stuff to this team, and let's just say that didn't fare well...

From weird choking to IMO wasting the potential of some of the players they picked (MFW IsoCon never played a game), it's clear the WUoG lost the mentality and some of the resources that made them win the last PMPL.
