The last quarterfinals match is played, with bomber splattered all over the ground, and the wizard unable to secure the ball. Orcs advance, and humans have to yield.

Now for the messy predictions:

Nelphine predicted 7 round 4 games; he got 4/7 right. He then predicted 4 round 5 games; he got 2/4 right. This leads to 6/11! And he can still get both round 6 predictions correct.

tussock predicted 6.5 round 4 games; he got 5.5/6.5 right. he has made 3.5 round 5 predictions (very wishy washy on orcs vs ogres) and got 2.5 right. This leads to 8/10! This sounds better than 6/11 but we promise it's not! He then made 2 more predictions (only 1 round 6), that i'm pretty sure contradict his other predictions, but he could still get that round 6 right!

Joost predicted 7 round 4 games; he got 5/7 right. he has made 3.5 round 5 predictions (he thought humans magically turned into undead), and got 1/3.5 right. He has 6/10.5... ok fine this is better than 6/11. Unfortunately, all his remaining predictions were incorrect.

happygrue predicted a whole lot of things, and got 1 right. 1/???. he has similarly predicted very interesting round 5 things, and got 1/??? right. He will definitely get confused!

Astrolonim predicted 6 round 4 games. he got 4/6 right. he has made 1 round 5 prediction, but it was late, so 0.5 round 5 predictions. But he didn't get right. 4/6.5, definitely worse than 6/11, what are you talking about??

following up the widely appraised commentary from #majors

I will do my first forecast

HEEL vs GRIEFER WITH A HEART OF GOLD will be a hard fought battle, where many a star will make an appearance, but when the dust settles it will be a win for the griefers

UBER HEEL vs WILDCARD will be a costly win for the fat orcs, losing precious positionals that will miss the inevitable showdown with the boneheads, still way down in TV

I will not make a pronouncement regarding the final, at this stage

sadly I won't be able to spectate either of the semis

but my golden balls don't lie, so no need for me to witness what is already decided

The first finalist has been determined!

Orcs plowed through Undead, with more brute force than skill!

I like a Troll (and a gobbo!) as it seems more fun, more variety. Though I think less efficient an overall team at low TV.

No seasonal redraft; and useful randoms on the Troll turns the efficiency dial more in favour.

I much prefer the troll, as a S5 roadblock. I don't like the goblin, but I understand the arguments of using a goblin as your primary ball carrier instead of a blitzer. I don't care for TTM attempts though.

And the next finalist has been chosen! Bomber blew up, taking down ogres, dwarves, and every other imaginable target, and in the end, the ogres danced on the bodies of the dwarves to advance!
