tier

PUPL Champion
Lets get some predicts goin.
Mt. Silver Foxes (6) vs (2) Circuit Breakers

SV OU: Thiago Nunes vs Gondra - Gondra is a great player and i can fs see this going either way, but having been around nunes and seeing his games I think he is a phenominal player rn
SV OU: Carkoala vs Sylveon used calm mind - smth smth dave tour
SV OU: mncmt vs Nat - I wanted to bold mncmt because I thought Nat might overcook smth but shit theyve been bringing interesting stuff and its been doing well
SV Ubers: Highlord vs M Dragon - hopefully we can do my homework after ur game smile. Gl tho king you got this
SV DOU: Akaru Kokuyo vs Meminger21 - fraud tier idk this shit
SV UU: hariyana grande vs umbry - ok ok hariyana grande is fs my goat, but umbry is just a powerhouse to be against and had plot armour last week, easily in my top 3 games this week to watch
SV RU: Floss vs ishtar - idk RU moment dont flop, 3-1 tho so vamos my mono amigo
SV NU: Togkey vs Elias PSY - evidently a strong player i doubt they go too wrong but elias hasnt been playing poorly by any means beating gxe and meru is big
SV PU: Xiri vs gum - goat will be close fs
SV LC: Éric vs tazz - unfortunately another fraud tier but at least ive heard of this guy before, the other is 4-0 but idk

for what i had as my last place LU, seems like yall are farming

Uncharted Terrors (5?) vs (5?) Indigo Platoon

SV OU: Joeshh vs Finchinator - shrug ill bold finch but im not 100000000% sold
SV OU: oldspicemike vs zioziotrip - zio brings strong shit consistently, i expect him to play well and had him winning but the people on the street expect a close game going either way
SV OU: xavgb vs MichaelderBeste2 - fs a highlight for OU this week, the way stresh be making teams leaves me constantly impressed every week so this was an obvious bold for me
SV Ubers: RichardMillePlain vs SiTuM - GOAT, if imma be real i favor situm as the stronger player but rich is gonna cook some gas
SV DOU: Nails vs Xrn - " GOAT " this is a highlight asf of this week in DOU for me, Nails is probably favored as the player but i truly think Xrn can pull this one out and seems most people are rooting for him :innocent:
SV UU: Accel vs McMeghan - Stronger fundamentals as a player, this one wont be a wash tho
SV RU: Feliburn vs Ajna - this seems like another MU oat, i hope feli cooks a cool team gl
SV NU: avarice vs Axrtix - imma be real i alrdy didnt think axrtix was starter lvl in the first place, not as a fuck you but i think there was a large amnt of skill disparity plus he is against one of my goats so i dont think there will be an insane game. Feel free to prove me wrong
SV PU: sensei axew vs Santu - "GOAT"
SV LC: Laroxyl vs Scottie - This seems like a sick MU the scottie dude is clearly farming other players and ive heard people say laro is good, i dont have any where near enough knowledge in lc to know who is fundementally a better player


Power Plant Dynamos (5) vs (5) Technical Machines

SV OU: Baloor vs Isza - damn, imma fs tune in, baloor shoulda won last week but i cant pretend like im not rooting for isza to go X-0 and smash this tour
SV OU: Separation vs TPP - battle of the 0-4s who no one expects to be 0-4. ydays game with TPP not clicking protect to scout ever w gliscor had me going yo this dude is the goat, doesnt expect the zap, or doesnt give a fuck. regardless any of those 3 make me choose him as long as seperations doesnt bring out a heater team
SV OU: BIHI vs Malekith - neither of these users have had games that made me gasp and go oh shit that was fucking insane, theyre both strong and it can go either way
SV Ubers: fade vs entrocefalo - entrooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
SV DOU: raf vs qsns - again fraud tier moment idk i only saw qsns play one game and he won so lgi 0-1 vs 3-1
SV UU: tko vs Punny - Punny is a strong player and builds cool shit, having spent some time fucking around in UU myself i wouldnt have thought about using iron leaves and it pulled a great MU yday. I dont doubt he will bring another interesting and powerful team to secure this
SV RU: Beraldo vs JustFranco - not at all sold on the franco train, dudes been winning esp vs some dudes like ajna so i cant hate but i wasnt a fan of his team nor his play yday
SV NU: Kushalos vs freezai - "hmm kush just better idk" " I'd bold kush " "freezais fishy techs have just worked " " Ask chat gpt at this point bro " word on the street is kush wins
SV PU: DAHLI vs Chloe - peacccccccccchyclouds lgi gang
SV LC: Collette vs Elfuseon - collette be stealing my ompl custom so im not bolding them lol

damn i rlly rate none of ur lower tiers thats nuts

Showdown Shoguns (4) vs (6) Studio Gible

SV OU: blunder vs Piyush25 - aii i mean i woulda loved to bold z0mog or smth here but i dont think mr piyush is winning, also vert teams r gonna fuxk him
SV OU: Storm Zone vs Fogbound Lake - clearly the german core is going vamos gogbound gake
SV OU: lax vs mind gaming - reference above
SV Ubers: SoulWind vs Fc - FREEEEEEEEEEEEEENCH CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANADIAN i expect some bullshit out of this slot this is either gonna be a boring ass gliscor vs gliscor game or FC is gonna bring some heat like basculegion or some random weird caly ice w agil
SV DOU: eragon11145 vs zee - man wtf is this fraud shit i cba predicting this tier
SV UU: Gilbert arenas vs Eternal Spirit - In a hypothetical logic competition, we have two renowned contestants: Gilbert Arenas, known for his sharp strategic thinking in basketball, and Eternal Spirit, a figure shrouded in mystery, rumored to possess profound logical insight.
The contest involves a series of complex puzzles and deductive reasoning challenges. Given their backgrounds, Gilbert Arenas might excel at quickly assessing situations and adapting strategies, while Eternal Spirit may bring a unique, abstract perspective to problem-solving.
Considering their respective strengths, it's a tough call. If the competition heavily emphasizes rapid decision-making and adapting to dynamic situations, Gilbert Arenas may have the edge. On the other hand, if the challenges require deep philosophical reasoning or unconventional approaches, Eternal Spirit could prevail.
Ultimately, the outcome of this mock logic competition depends on the nature of the challenges and the judges' criteria. It's a coin toss, but it promises to be a fascinating battle of wits.
Remember, this is entirely fictional and for entertainment purposes, as I can't provide real predictions for such scenarios. If you have specific questions related to logic and critical reasoning in a class environment, feel free to ask, and I'll be happy to assist.
SV RU: bb skarm vs ninjadog - ninjadog being slotted here has been a big ? to me if imma be frank, i truly see some of the subs sitting in the back as being stronger players and ngl ive never seen bb skarm **WINNING** across my time w him in PUPL or watching his SCL rn but i have seen them put insane effort into their prep, whether that warrents a win or not im unsure but this is defintely a match up lol
SV NU: watashi vs etern - bj support goat
SV PU: zS vs S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - sigh.
SV LC: Eniigma vs dcae - 1-3 vs who people keep rating as the strongest so

I wanna see gibles win this but damn some of the slots feel like a big **?** to me

I asked the hosts to delay the week until I got a chance to write my predicts, hence the week not going up until monday night and the lineup fiasco, my bad gang
also disclaimer, in order to keep these predicts free of bias i decided not to watch a single game of the tour up to this point or even look at the sheet, all i know is the foxes win every week

Mt. Silver Foxes (4) vs (5) Circuit Breakers

SV OU: Thiago Nunes vs Gondra - gondra wasnt even around for wcop and now hes playing this meme tour i truly wish him the worst, id predict him to lose but its his birthday dont forget to wish him the best. tbh i cant remember if thiago is an rby or an nu player but neither should translate well into ou so
SV OU: Carkoala vs Sylveon used calm mind - #1 sylveon fan so i have to bold him, havent looked at his record but i imagine hes at least neutral, carkoala has a lot of hype from The Jerk or something which cant be very good for him
SV OU: mncmt vs Nat - even more shocking than gondra playing is nat being here, i wouldve expected her to have made her yearly smogon quit post by now after seeing her sign up for olt but it seems she has remained zen, probably a good sign so ill give her this one even tho mncmt seems more consistent in this gen
SV Ubers: Highlord vs M Dragon - yearly mdragon tournament appearence so ppl wont forget hes still around, i think his opp is supposed to be good but i will not be predicting against the dragon before i see him do the gen9 equivalent of forgetting future sight
SV DOU: Akaru Kokuyo vs Meminger21 - akaru is good now or so ive heard, someone should tell meminger its not too late for a rebrand wtf is this name
SV UU: hariyana grande vs umbry - oh nah hariyana grande is in this, umbry is either doing really well or really poorly but im leaning towards poorly since apparently she cost like 30k(?) dawg what
SV RU: Floss vs ishtar - no clue who ishtar is, im gonna watch this 1 so i hope he leaves a good impression
SV NU: Togkey vs Elias PSY - 2017 njnp goon vs someone i think ive only seen in spanish tours before or maybe im confusing him with another elias. close one, its nu so it doesnt really matter lol
SV PU: Xiri vs gum - xiris heat and ive heard from the secret jerk that gum is trash and should make himself comfortable in the bench (not my words)
SV LC: Éric vs tazz - dunno who eric is and from what i know about tazz he should be slightly better than that

Uncharted Terrors (5) vs (4) Indigo Platoon

SV OU: Joeshh vs Finchinator - i would never bold finch in current gen but hes playing i think the lowest ranked player in the pool(?) surely this is a free win even for finch, guaranteed he brings something like gliscor empoleon dragapult and clicks some buttons
SV OU: oldspicemike vs zioziotrip - not sure whos more racist, someone literally banned for racism or someone named after old spice. either way zio is a 1v1 main and mike beat me in ost with starry watching so ill give him this one
SV OU: xavgb vs MichaelderBeste2 - stresh is not good i will die on this hill. michael is one of the best players of recent time but he doesnt seem as involved lately so i wouldnt count stresh out, 50-50
SV Ubers: RichardMillePlain vs SiTuM - cant predict againt a richie mille, situm pre name change was about as intimidating tho so maybe theres a chance
SV DOU: Nails vs Xrn - nails is too good guaranteed at least 7-2
SV UU: Accel vs McMeghan - i remember accel being pretty good but hes playing sv enthusiast roro so its a tough one, i wish this was The Jerk team so i could just bold roros opponent without second thought but it doesnt seem like it so he can have this one
SV RU: Feliburn vs Ajna - boring one cause i think theyve played a million times already, flip a coin
SV NU: avarice vs Axrtix - all i remember about avarice recently is him losing a finals tiebreak to activity so im gonna say hes putting about as much effort into this, leaning towards arxtrix whoever tf he is
SV PU: sensei axew vs Santu - word on the street has it the sensei downgraded to pu because uu was too hard for him, granted u could say the same about santu. close one but i think the lgbt community has a tight grip on the lower tiers the sensei certainly outgays santu in this one
SV LC: Laroxyl vs Scottie - i think laroxyls supposed to be good

Orange Islanders (3) vs (7) Arena Spartans

SV OU: Rubyblood vs Niko - looks like niko is back, for better or worse. im not trying to hate on a former teammate but i cannot forget ruby donating a surefire win to ox during last years spl so this one goes to niko
SV OU: Wolf vs Ox the Fox - having rubyblood and bloody alfa next to each other on the lineup would instantly win u every week off intimidation factor alone but he ruined that with this name change. ive heard ox is washed now and should stay retired but ill give him the benefit of the doubt for old times sake
SV OU: Welli0u vs Sage - sage is ok, i remember her having a lot of potential in spl so i wanna see if thats paid off. on the other hand theres well who put retirement on the line for his olt swiss match vs empo for absolutely no reason and then LOST(?) next level main character syndrome, hope he loses and gets therapy
SV Ubers: Exiline vs Icemaster - i remember this guy used to piss everyone off but ig he must be better now if he keeps getting picked in these tours, still bolding dollar store starmaster
SV DOU: JRL vs Tenzai - tenzai was heat last scl, same with jrl. tossup
SV UU: pdt vs Lily - i thought lily played ou now, uu should be easy in comparison and shes playing pinkdragontwerker or whatever
SV RU: robjr vs TheFranklin - thefranklins good i think he kicked my ass in wcop. robjr robbed me of my deserved adv ribbon i wont forgive that anytime soon, maybe next week
SV NU: Danny vs GXE - the one game of this season ive seen was dannys i think and i remember i didnt like what i saw, however in an effort to remain unbiased i will offset that by bolding him and praying
SV PU: DugZa vs Mana - dugza uses like 1% of his total brainpower whenever he makes a pr post so im hoping the other 99% goes towards playing cause otherwise hes smoked. id bold mana automatically but decent chance they leave this game for last and he subs out
SV LC: Hacker vs Wail Wailord - cant beat a literal hacker

Power Plant Dynamos (5) vs (5) Technical Machines

SV OU: Baloor vs Isza - i get the impression that baloor uses the downtime between every turn in his games to eat some crayons instead of thinking about his next move, I’d be legitimately embarrassed to lose to lanloorius therian or whatever he nicks his mons
SV OU: DAHLI vs TPP - seeing dahli in a starting lineup lights up my day. tpps ok but hes been around for a while and hes still only ok, ill lean towards dahli winning with a maushold or something
SV OU: BIHI vs Malekith - 2 of the best players in this meme tour, should be a fun one
SV Ubers: fade vs entrocefalo - jon really does everything except play ou, no amount of farming lower tiers and oras ou to pad his sheet record will make me think hes good. i guess im bolding this other guys
SV DOU: Feyy vs qsns - i think feyy won osdt recently so he should be good, i used to fw qsns but i have heard some suspicious rumors about him recently, not bolding just in case
SV UU: tko vs Punny - punny farming lower tiers as usual, shouldnt see much resistance from tko
SV RU: Beraldo vs JustFranco - i think beraldinho isnt ass anymore so thats a relief cause i hate watching bad mainers, franco nearly killed his career a few weeks ago in olt but he was brave and played insult anyway knowing he would lose, i hope hes better than beraldo
SV NU: Kushalos vs freezai - freezai is heat but i am forever in debt to kushalos and thus have to bold him
SV PU: Mashing vs Chloe - i dunno when mashing got so much clout but good for her, i havent heard of chloe before ill put her around kate level in my mental rankings because thats the most self intuitive spot
SV LC: Collette vs Elfuseon - 2 white ppl in lc im not watching

Showdown Shoguns (6) vs (4) Studio Gible

SV OU: blunder vs Piyush25 - ladder piyush is a menace but he loses a lot of his power in tournaments, i dont think he’ll beat blunder
SV OU: Storm Zone vs Fogbound Lake - fogbound lake still sounds like a sacri nickname for tapu fini or something, storm came back from a tourban and made his deepest run in olt recently thats an easy bold
SV OU: lax vs mind gaming - heat matchup, lax is perhaps at his peak again but i rank mind gaming very highly
SV Ubers: SoulWind vs Fc - activity for sw because fc shows up 12 seconds late
SV DOU: eragon11145 vs zee - if u have that many numbers in your name youre either god or your managers decided to do a little trolling, we’ll see after this week
SV UU: Gilbert arenas vs Eternal Spirit - marcop is good at every tier he plays, gamas still ass, maybe we’ll see him in pu next season
SV RU: bb skarm vs ninjadog - i see ninjadog as more consistent of a player but with a lower ceiling than skarm, kind of a tossup
SV NU: watashi vs etern - i have 0 faith in either of these but watashi lost to jon so leaning towards eternally
SV PU: zS vs S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - i saw sinnoh talk about himself in the third person in the scl channel the other day so i dont expect much from him, i think hes experiencing erz syndrome
SV LC: Eniigma vs dcae - this is lc so im just bolding whoevers more indian

SV RU: bb skarm vs ninjadog - i see ninjadog as more consistent of a player but with a lower ceiling than skarm, kind of a tossup
SV NU: watashi vs etern - i have 0 faith in either of these but watashi lost to jon so leaning towards eternally
SV PU: zS vs S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - i saw sinnoh talk about himself in the third person in the scl channel the other day so i dont expect much from him, i think hes experiencing erz syndrome
SV LC: Eniigma vs dcae - this is lc so im just bolding whoevers more indian

Yep definitely neutral, you should not look up my score

hs

Banned deucer.
I asked the hosts to delay the week until I got a chance to write my predicts, hence the week not going up until monday night and the lineup fiasco, my bad gang
also disclaimer, in order to keep these predicts free of bias i decided not to watch a single game of the tour up to this point or even look at the sheet, all i know is the foxes win every week

Mt. Silver Foxes (4) vs (5) Circuit Breakers

SV OU: Thiago Nunes vs Gondra - gondra wasnt even around for wcop and now hes playing this meme tour i truly wish him the worst, id predict him to lose but its his birthday dont forget to wish him the best. tbh i cant remember if thiago is an rby or an nu player but neither should translate well into ou so
SV OU: Carkoala vs Sylveon used calm mind - #1 sylveon fan so i have to bold him, havent looked at his record but i imagine hes at least neutral, carkoala has a lot of hype from The Jerk or something which cant be very good for him
SV OU: mncmt vs Nat - even more shocking than gondra playing is nat being here, i wouldve expected her to have made her yearly smogon quit post by now after seeing her sign up for olt but it seems she has remained zen, probably a good sign so ill give her this one even tho mncmt seems more consistent in this gen
SV Ubers: Highlord vs M Dragon - yearly mdragon tournament appearence so ppl wont forget hes still around, i think his opp is supposed to be good but i will not be predicting against the dragon before i see him do the gen9 equivalent of forgetting future sight
SV DOU: Akaru Kokuyo vs Meminger21 - akaru is good now or so ive heard, someone should tell meminger its not too late for a rebrand wtf is this name
SV UU: hariyana grande vs umbry - oh nah hariyana grande is in this, umbry is either doing really well or really poorly but im leaning towards poorly since apparently she cost like 30k(?) dawg what
SV RU: Floss vs ishtar - no clue who ishtar is, im gonna watch this 1 so i hope he leaves a good impression
SV NU: Togkey vs Elias PSY - 2017 njnp goon vs someone i think ive only seen in spanish tours before or maybe im confusing him with another elias. close one, its nu so it doesnt really matter lol
SV PU: Xiri vs gum - xiris heat and ive heard from the secret jerk that gum is trash and should make himself comfortable in the bench (not my words)
SV LC: Éric vs tazz - dunno who eric is and from what i know about tazz he should be slightly better than that

Uncharted Terrors (5) vs (4) Indigo Platoon

SV OU: Joeshh vs Finchinator - i would never bold finch in current gen but hes playing i think the lowest ranked player in the pool(?) surely this is a free win even for finch, guaranteed he brings something like gliscor empoleon dragapult and clicks some buttons
SV OU: oldspicemike vs zioziotrip - not sure whos more racist, someone literally banned for racism or someone named after old spice. either way zio is a 1v1 main and mike beat me in ost with starry watching so ill give him this one
SV OU: xavgb vs MichaelderBeste2 - stresh is not good i will die on this hill. michael is one of the best players of recent time but he doesnt seem as involved lately so i wouldnt count stresh out, 50-50
SV Ubers: RichardMillePlain vs SiTuM - cant predict againt a richie mille, situm pre name change was about as intimidating tho so maybe theres a chance
SV DOU: Nails vs Xrn - nails is too good guaranteed at least 7-2
SV UU: Accel vs McMeghan - i remember accel being pretty good but hes playing sv enthusiast roro so its a tough one, i wish this was The Jerk team so i could just bold roros opponent without second thought but it doesnt seem like it so he can have this one
SV RU: Feliburn vs Ajna - boring one cause i think theyve played a million times already, flip a coin
SV NU: avarice vs Axrtix - all i remember about avarice recently is him losing a finals tiebreak to activity so im gonna say hes putting about as much effort into this, leaning towards arxtrix whoever tf he is
SV PU: sensei axew vs Santu - word on the street has it the sensei downgraded to pu because uu was too hard for him, granted u could say the same about santu. close one but i think the lgbt community has a tight grip on the lower tiers the sensei certainly outgays santu in this one
SV LC: Laroxyl vs Scottie - i think laroxyls supposed to be good

Orange Islanders (3) vs (7) Arena Spartans

SV OU: Rubyblood vs Niko - looks like niko is back, for better or worse. im not trying to hate on a former teammate but i cannot forget ruby donating a surefire win to ox during last years spl so this one goes to niko
SV OU: Wolf vs Ox the Fox - having rubyblood and bloody alfa next to each other on the lineup would instantly win u every week off intimidation factor alone but he ruined that with this name change. ive heard ox is washed now and should stay retired but ill give him the benefit of the doubt for old times sake
SV OU: Welli0u vs Sage - sage is ok, i remember her having a lot of potential in spl so i wanna see if thats paid off. on the other hand theres well who put retirement on the line for his olt swiss match vs empo for absolutely no reason and then LOST(?) next level main character syndrome, hope he loses and gets therapy
SV Ubers: Exiline vs Icemaster - i remember this guy used to piss everyone off but ig he must be better now if he keeps getting picked in these tours, still bolding dollar store starmaster
SV DOU: JRL vs Tenzai - tenzai was heat last scl, same with jrl. tossup
SV UU: pdt vs Lily - i thought lily played ou now, uu should be easy in comparison and shes playing pinkdragontwerker or whatever
SV RU: robjr vs TheFranklin - thefranklins good i think he kicked my ass in wcop. robjr robbed me of my deserved adv ribbon i wont forgive that anytime soon, maybe next week
SV NU: Danny vs GXE - the one game of this season ive seen was dannys i think and i remember i didnt like what i saw, however in an effort to remain unbiased i will offset that by bolding him and praying
SV PU: DugZa vs Mana - dugza uses like 1% of his total brainpower whenever he makes a pr post so im hoping the other 99% goes towards playing cause otherwise hes smoked. id bold mana automatically but decent chance they leave this game for last and he subs out
SV LC: Hacker vs Wail Wailord - cant beat a literal hacker

Power Plant Dynamos (5) vs (5) Technical Machines

SV OU: Baloor vs Isza - i get the impression that baloor uses the downtime between every turn in his games to eat some crayons instead of thinking about his next move, I’d be legitimately embarrassed to lose to lanloorius therian or whatever he nicks his mons
SV OU: DAHLI vs TPP - seeing dahli in a starting lineup lights up my day. tpps ok but hes been around for a while and hes still only ok, ill lean towards dahli winning with a maushold or something
SV OU: BIHI vs Malekith - 2 of the best players in this meme tour, should be a fun one
SV Ubers: fade vs entrocefalo - jon really does everything except play ou, no amount of farming lower tiers and oras ou to pad his sheet record will make me think hes good. i guess im bolding this other guys
SV DOU: Feyy vs qsns - i think feyy won osdt recently so he should be good, i used to fw qsns but i have heard some suspicious rumors about him recently, not bolding just in case
SV UU: tko vs Punny - punny farming lower tiers as usual, shouldnt see much resistance from tko
SV RU: Beraldo vs JustFranco - i think beraldinho isnt ass anymore so thats a relief cause i hate watching bad mainers, franco nearly killed his career a few weeks ago in olt but he was brave and played insult anyway knowing he would lose, i hope hes better than beraldo
SV NU: Kushalos vs freezai - freezai is heat but i am forever in debt to kushalos and thus have to bold him
SV PU: Mashing vs Chloe - i dunno when mashing got so much clout but good for her, i havent heard of chloe before ill put her around kate level in my mental rankings because thats the most self intuitive spot
SV LC: Collette vs Elfuseon - 2 white ppl in lc im not watching

Showdown Shoguns (6) vs (4) Studio Gible

SV OU: blunder vs Piyush25 - ladder piyush is a menace but he loses a lot of his power in tournaments, i dont think he’ll beat blunder
SV OU: Storm Zone vs Fogbound Lake - fogbound lake still sounds like a sacri nickname for tapu fini or something, storm came back from a tourban and made his deepest run in olt recently thats an easy bold
SV OU: lax vs mind gaming - heat matchup, lax is perhaps at his peak again but i rank mind gaming very highly
SV Ubers: SoulWind vs Fc - activity for sw because fc shows up 12 seconds late
SV DOU: eragon11145 vs zee - if u have that many numbers in your name youre either god or your managers decided to do a little trolling, we’ll see after this week
SV UU: Gilbert arenas vs Eternal Spirit - marcop is good at every tier he plays, gamas still ass, maybe we’ll see him in pu next season

hii um only going to write about the tiers i know

Mt. Silver Foxes (5) vs (5) Circuit Breakers

SV OU: Thiago Nunes vs Gondra
SV OU: Carkoala vs Sylveon used calm mind
SV OU: mncmt vs Nat
SV Ubers: Highlord vs M Dragon
SV DOU: Akaru Kokuyo vs Meminger21
SV UU: hariyana grande vs umbry - gonna predict the upset here, frankjosh hasn't brought the best teams at least compared to what umbry has brought but he has been super motivated the whole tour and that honestly goes a long way. umbry's the better player as of now but idk I just have feeling frankjosh is gonna bring something cool this week and outprep umbry in the builder
SV RU: Floss vs ishtar - well so i guess the breaker's ru starter is out..? ishtar didn't have necessarily the best ru debut last week and Floss has been doing good so I'll give him a solid edge. ishtar does have a way of stealing games out of nowhere though so wouldn't be surprised to see the upset here either
SV NU: Togkey vs Elias PSY - togkey is the queen of bringing some random shit to abuse common cores, which elias has been spamming, so going to give her the edge. I think this game is going to come down to who gets the better matchup as I think they're relatively even players
SV PU: Xiri vs gum - gum's not going to go 1-4 in 2023 PU especially since their most recent losses have been pretty unlucky with hax and unwinnable matchups even though their play has been good
SV LC: Éric vs tazz

Orange Islanders (5) vs (5) Arena Spartans

SV OU: Rubyblood vs Niko
SV OU: Wolf vs Ox the Fox
SV OU: Welli0u vs Sage
SV Ubers: Exiline vs Icemaster
SV DOU: JRL vs Tenzai
SV UU: pdt vs Lily - I think Lily is going to transition quite nicely to UU after struggling a bit recently in OU as I've always been fond of her UU play. pdt is an amazing player although and his only loss so far is to Punny which is IMO the best player in the pool so this game is going to be really tight. Going to give Lily the edge though as I think she's going to be motivated enough to not end up with a negative record (as long as she brings a check to that demon Hydreigon set)
SV RU: robjr vs TheFranklin - arce is not going 0-5 albeit rob has impressed me a lot with his RU play so far. I think as long as arce brings a solid team with better outs to common RU threats he'll outplay to his first win
SV NU: Danny vs GXE - Danny has played the better games so far I think and I've been more fond of his team choices. GXE's obviously a great player though so this could go either way
SV PU: DugZa vs Mana - Honestly haven't been a fan of what the Spartans have been bringing and although Dugza is 1-3 his games have been a lot closer than what that record makes it seem. He's brought the better teams IMO and realistically should be 3-1 so gonna give him the edge
SV LC: Hacker vs Wail Wailord

Power Plant Dynamos (5) vs (5) Technical Machines

SV OU: Baloor vs Isza
SV OU: DAHLI vs TPP
SV OU: BIHI vs Malekith
SV Ubers: fade vs entrocefalo
SV DOU: Feyy vs qsns
SV UU: tko vs Punny - Punny's the best player in the UU pool and it's no surprise that his only loss is to umbry whos 4-0. tko was preforming relatively well in LC and kind of got botted last week so I wouldn't count him completely out but I'm pretty sure Punny will win this pretty handily
SV RU: Beraldo vs JustFranco - Beraldo's been steam rolling the RU pool and I don't really see him stopping here
SV NU: Kushalos vs freezai - both Kush and freezai have had some interesting games so far but neither have really impressed me all that much so I'm going to go with the better NU player
SV PU: Mashing vs Chloe - Chloe's been struggling a bit lately (albeit her week 3 game was primarily lost due to luck) and she brought a Dusclops..? last week but yeah I have no reason to believe she'll lose here idek if mashing has played a single PU game like ever
SV LC: Collette vs Elfuseon - Collette's a really good player so it's no surprise that she's starting in LC finally. Machines LC slot is 0-4 and seem to be really struggling so Collete should take this pretty easily here

Showdown Shoguns (4) vs (6) Studio Gible

SV OU: blunder vs Piyush25
SV OU: Storm Zone vs Fogbound Lake
SV OU: lax vs mind gaming
SV Ubers: SoulWind vs Fc
SV DOU: eragon11145 vs zee
SV UU: Gilbert arenas vs Eternal Spirit - I've been a fan of Marcop this tour he's been playing really well and has brought some really solid teams. Gama is a solid player though and his wins were with teams that had almost impossible to lose MUs so I can see him bringing a team with another great MU and farming. Nonetheless, gonna pick Marcop here as I think even in a bad MU he'd be able to outplay to a win
SV RU: bb skarm vs ninjadog - Gible's RU has been struggling big time and although skarm hasn't been the best, I've been a bigger fan of what I've seen from him so far
SV NU: watashi vs etern - could go either way but etern has been rock solid this tour so gonna give him a slight edge
SV PU: zS vs S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - love zS but the Ho3 has been preforming really well this tour. However, I think if zS brings a solid team with a good matchup he can def pull off the upset
SV LC: Eniigma vs dcae

Let's have a fun week everyone :)
 
Damn you talk like you're a fucking superstar, what do you have on this fucking site except one good spl carried by Will Of Fire ? So pathetic LOL . Even Tsunami the guy who ghosted his classic isn't that cringeworthy.

SV OU: Welli0u vs Sage - sage is ok, i remember her having a lot of potential in spl so i wanna see if thats paid off. on the other hand theres well who put retirement on the line for his olt swiss match vs empo for absolutely no reason and then LOST(?) next level main character syndrome, hope he loses and gets therapy
SV Ubers: Exiline vs Icemaster - i remember this guy used to piss everyone off but ig he must be better now if he keeps getting picked in these tours, still bolding dollar store starmaster
SV DOU: JRL vs Tenzai - tenzai was heat last scl, same with jrl. tossup
SV UU: pdt vs Lily - i thought lily played ou now, uu should be easy in comparison and shes playing pinkdragontwerker or whatever
SV RU: robjr vs TheFranklin - thefranklins good i think he kicked my ass in wcop. robjr robbed me of my deserved adv ribbon i wont forgive that anytime soon, maybe next week
SV NU: Danny vs GXE - the one game of this season ive seen was dannys i think and i remember i didnt like what i saw, however in an effort to remain unbiased i will offset that by bolding him and praying
SV PU: DugZa vs Mana - dugza uses like 1% of his total brainpower whenever he makes a pr post so im hoping the other 99% goes towards playing cause otherwise hes smoked. id bold mana automatically but decent chance they leave this game for last and he subs out
SV LC: Hacker vs Wail Wailord - cant beat a literal hacker

Power Plant Dynamos (5) vs (5) Technical Machines

SV OU: Baloor vs Isza - i get the impression that baloor uses the downtime between every turn in his games to eat some crayons instead of thinking about his next move, I’d be legitimately embarrassed to lose to lanloorius therian or whatever he nicks his mons
SV OU: DAHLI vs TPP - seeing dahli in a starting lineup lights up my day. tpps ok but hes been around for a while and hes still only ok, ill lean towards dahli winning with a maushold or something
SV OU: BIHI vs Malekith - 2 of the best players in this meme tour, should be a fun one
SV Ubers: fade vs entrocefalo - jon really does everything except play ou, no amount of farming lower tiers and oras ou to pad his sheet record will make me think hes good. i guess im bolding this other guys
SV DOU: Feyy vs qsns - i think feyy won osdt recently so he should be good, i used to fw qsns but i have heard some suspicious rumors about him recently, not bolding just in case
SV UU: tko vs Punny - punny farming lower tiers as usual, shouldnt see much resistance from tko
SV RU: Beraldo vs JustFranco - i think beraldinho isnt ass anymore so thats a relief cause i hate watching bad mainers, franco nearly killed his career a few weeks ago in olt but he was brave and played insult anyway knowing he would lose, i hope hes better than beraldo
SV NU: Kushalos vs freezai - freezai is heat but i am forever in debt to kushalos and thus have to bold him
SV PU: Mashing vs Chloe - i dunno when mashing got so much clout but good for her, i havent heard of chloe before ill put her around kate level in my mental rankings because thats the most self intuitive spot
SV LC: Collette vs Elfuseon - 2 white ppl in lc im not watching

Showdown Shoguns (6) vs (4) Studio Gible

SV OU: blunder vs Piyush25 - ladder piyush is a menace but he loses a lot of his power in tournaments, i dont think he’ll beat blunder
SV OU: Storm Zone vs Fogbound Lake - fogbound lake still sounds like a sacri nickname for tapu fini or something, storm came back from a tourban and made his deepest run in olt recently thats an easy bold
SV OU: lax vs mind gaming - heat matchup, lax is perhaps at his peak again but i rank mind gaming very highly
SV Ubers: SoulWind vs Fc - activity for sw because fc shows up 12 seconds late
SV DOU: eragon11145 vs zee - if u have that many numbers in your name youre either god or your managers decided to do a little trolling, we’ll see after this week
SV UU: Gilbert arenas vs Eternal Spirit - marcop is good at every tier he plays, gamas still ass, maybe we’ll see him in pu next season
SV RU: bb skarm vs ninjadog - i see ninjadog as more consistent of a player but with a lower ceiling than skarm, kind of a tossup
SV NU: watashi vs etern - i have 0 faith in either of these but watashi lost to jon so leaning towards eternally
SV PU: zS vs S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - i saw sinnoh talk about himself in the third person in the scl channel the other day so i dont expect much from him, i think hes experiencing erz syndrome
SV LC: Eniigma vs dcae - this is lc so im just bolding whoevers more indian

Damn you talk like you're a fucking superstar, what do you have on this fucking site except one good spl carried by Will Of Fire ? So pathetic LOL . Even Tsunami the guy who ghosted his classic isn't that cringeworthy.
I'm not ashamed to tell you what I think of you because you were once my spl teammate and you're an ridiculous still talking about a game two years ago, what have you done better since? Delete this and get better with LA next wcup, clown of the smogon social network.

UU predicts:

(3-1) pdt vs Lily (0-0) - Not really shocking PDT is rocking a good record here. Seems that Lily and Sage have swapped since Sage is 0-3 and Lily is only 2-2 in OU (though she got an unwinnable matchup one week). Sage has prior experience in OU so the swap isn't outrageous. I've been told Lily doesn't have the most impressive UU team tour numbers despite usually dominating in individuals. I will take pdt if he doesn't fuck around too much in the builder.

(2-2) hariyana grande vs umbry (4-0) - No one fucking understands how much hate I got for saying Umbry is the best in the pool. Yes at times she doesn't play well, but she's the best builder here just above Lily imo. And now she's 4-0. Fuck the haters, it's Alyssabry season. Mad props to frankjosh for having an even record in his first big tour though. Genuinely happy he's having success.

(2-2) Accel vs McMeghan (1-2) - I think roro's dominance in this pool got oversold. Yes he's a good player, but he's incredibly out of touch with a highly fluctuating metagame. I also think Accel is one of the most battle intelligent players ever to play UU. His record isn't telling, but I think he bounces back and wins here.

(0-1) tko vs Punny (3-1) - Dynamos are struggling to find a UU slot, having a combined 0-4 record among it's three starters. Punny is one of the most consistently dominant players on the site, and actually has played UU games this year wracking up a typically solid record. I don't see tko winning this one without a fire matchup or performance enhancing drugs.

PU predicts:

(2-2) sensei axew vs Santu (2-2) - for what are two players who were both highly rated on prs, matching 2-2 records is surprising. I think thus far the pool hasn't played very impressively. I would give sensei better odds here. Never been a fan of throwing a good player into a tier they haven't touched. I've seen Santu's teams on ladder several times so I don't think the prep is at an adequate level.

(2-2) Xiri vs gum (1-3) - Both used weird teams last week in my opinion. Xiri got farmed by a player I've never heard of and Gum didn't get the Duggy sweep they planned for. I think Gum is one of the best builders in this tier. But I don't think they have been impressive in their play, and neither has Xiri. 1-4 Gum feels weird so I will lean towards them.

(1-3) DugZa vs Mana (1-2) - Another set of weird records for these players. Dugza has suffered from some huge misplays but also some bad luck. I'm going to take him to win because once again he actually plays this tier, vs Mana who probably got reluctantly slotted in.

(0-0) Mashing vs Chloe (2-2) - Dynamos seem to be having an intense PU crisis since the ban happened. I don't see them winning any games until they sort out a player who can figure out the tier. Chloe gets the edge if she plays well here.
