Marco's Unbiased Predictions

Cuirassier Management Co. (19) vs Blockhouse Boomers (16)

Revnak (5) vs JulianK (2)
Ungurs (5) vs Mitoe (2)
Kévin (4) vs iamturk (3)
tabben (5) vs Happycat (2)
Sombbugunggu (0) vs Frontline (7)


JulianK is not having much success vs slot 1/2 players versus CMC & not having to prepare anything it's gonna down likewise without any change .
Ungurs is showing why hes MIP and totally cracked last 2 weeks.
Turk has the lowest winrate over the weeks (20%) ironically like don_artie & Kevin is on his top shape but he is still a good challenger for Kevin since he has caught up.
Jacked tabben #TT vs infamous Forjustice . Tabben has grinded more than Forjustice and is more solid in gameplay can be even a 6-1 or 7-0.
This is where weakness of CMC roster is having inactive player on slot 5 vs someone at frontpage placed #11 hence named himself Frontline whos is atleast 3rd slot player.

I would have tried to pair Kevin vs Frontline ,Sommpu vs iamturk . Overall CMC has the easy route to victory but Boomers can surprise us if all them perform more than their standards or peak performance.

Revnak (3) VS JulianK (4) - Yea so I overpredicted Julian twice but my Julian/minimoult prediction was 4-1 and the actual result was 3-2, so not so bad. Anyway I predict Julian because I believe that Julian can do the same sort of things that Revnak does but with better macro. His civ pool will suffer in bo7 (or rather, he won't have enough practiced civs and MUs, especially given that they play tomorrow), so I feel like it will start off really good for Julian then pick up for Revnak towards the end. Can go either way.

Ungurs (5) VS Mitoe (2) - Ungurs is one of the best players in this EPL. First he went 2-3 against Daniel, but I think Daniel is also one of the best players in this EPL, and he should have gone 3-2 but he threw the USA game. Then 4-1 against Julian and Ezad, seriously impressive. Mitoe is also really good, and I think the games will be closer than the score would indicate, but I think Ungurs wins convincingly. That said, if Mitoe brings his A-game onto every map then the score line might end up looking very different.

Kevin (4) VS iamturk (3) - In the first two weeks, iamturk wasn't too convincing. 2-3 against me into 0-5 against tabben. But in week 3, even though he only played 2 games, it looked like a different iamturk. He is playing a lot and I think he is getting his mechanics back, and he is getting help from the team with civs and builds and practice for specific matchups. Kevin is also a player that I think iamturk can do well against, and on top of all this iamturk has a mountain of tournament experience over the past 6-7 years against very strong players. Despite that, I still think Kevin will win, with more DE experiences and iamturk still feels a bit washed despite the improvement in week 3. Also, I usually don't use ladder games or elo as an indicator for how a player will perform in a tournament, especially with how DE ladder is, but iamturk clocks in at 1750 elo as of the time of writing, compared to Kevin's 2100. This is a 350 elo difference, so even if iamturk overperforms significantly and kevin underperforms significantly in tournaments compared to their elo, it still may not be enough to overcome the massive difference. Still expect some close games.

tabben (5) VS Happycat (2) - I think tabben is a better player but Happycat has more DE civs and some good builds. However, I think tabben's civ pool can handle the stretch to bo7, but Happycat's will suffer more. Also, Happycat dropped a map to Don Artie's Dutch with Ethiopia, which doesn't bode well for him here. Despite that, I still think Happycat will take two maps when he gets good matchups with strong civs.

somppu (1) VS Frontline (6) - I didn't watch the somppu woodpusher series but I was impressed that somppu won 3-2. That said, Frontline is #11 on the ladder right now, and I believe somppu only recently started his EPL grind when it became clear he was replacing miggo, and now he needs to play 7 different civs (unless there is a reset for bo7), and either way I think it's just difficult for somp here. One thing he has is much more tournament experience, similar to the iamturk/kevin situation but somp just has much less DE games.

CMC (18) - BHB (17)

I'm actually hoping for BHB to win, tempted to just give Mitoe an extra map but I'll stick with these predictions

I misread title as "layoffs" and was wondering if we got a point where players get fired

Damn tables have turned! Ungurs need to win 6-1 or 7-0 vs Mitoe for CMC to win else BHB takes it easily!! currently CMC 12-16 BHB.

In simple words if Ungurs drops 2 games it's over for CMC.

Since everyone predicted 5-2 for ungurs vs mitoe we can already figure out who won the predictions

Based on how far the prediction was from the actual score (points are bad):

Revnak (5) VS JulianK (2)
I predicted 3-4 - 2 points
Callen rng predicted 6-1 - 1 point
marco predicted 5-2 - 0 points

kevin (4) vs iamturk (3)
I predicted 4-3 - 0 points
Callen rng predicted 5-2 - 1 point
marco predicted 4-3 - 0 points

tabben (2) vs happycat (5)

I predicted 5-2 - 3 points
Callen rng predicted 3-4 - 1 point
marco predicted 5-2 - 3 points

somppu (1) vs Frontline (6)
marco predicted 0-7 - 1 pt
I predicted 1-6 - 0 pts
callen rng predicted 3-4 - 2 pts

Marco - 0 + 0 + 3 + 1 = 4
Callen rng - 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 5
Me - 2 + 0 + 3 + 0 = 5

Marco wins slightly, with my predictions being equal to Callen's randomly generated predictions

General result:

I predicted Julian winning, Kevin winning, tabben winning, and Frontline winning. 2/4
Callen rng predicted Revnak winning, Kevin winning, Happycat winning, and Frontline winning. 4/4
Marco predicted Revnak winning, Kevin winning, tabben winning, and Frontline winning. 3/4

Callen's randomly generated predictions win, with Marco 2nd and me last. But you know, I'd rather predict Julian winning and be wrong

Getting it exactly right:

Marco and I both got 2, both got iamturk vs kevin correct, Marco got Revnak VS Julian and I got somppu VS Frontline. Callen's rng predictions, despite getting every general result correct, didn't get a single match exactly right, which makes sense I guess.

Do we have the MVP of the tournament award? for me it is @Ungurs probably.

Surprise player of the tournament - @Frontline. he was solid.

The game of the tourny for me is that Kaiser (Dutch) vs Breeze (Otto).

Congrats to players and thank you for organizing ESOC.

MVP was Happycat for me carried blockhouse boomers to victory because of his performance. Ungurs did extremely good too i don't blame him.

Frontline is good idk why people underrate him hes like in the first or second page of the ladder and he performed the way i expected. He has participated in kotow also not a entirely new player.

Best games were minimoult vs JulinaK (china mirror ) & conequeror97 (otto) vs tabben ( China) comeback was unexpected wp.

Happycat was undoubtedly the MVP. He basically won the playoffs for his team, and he did so by winning a match that most people expected him to lose. CMC’s pairings strat required tabben to beat happycat which would make things very difficult for Mitoe, but instead he won, and by enough of a difference to win the playoffs despite only winning 2/5 matches.

The 2nd mvp is probably tied between Dan and ungurs

u are right. need to pay more attention to frontline games from now. he was just not my radar before.

also i really enjoyed the messy india game win from Sompu. it must have been a nightmare for his opponent!
