Nations Cup Thoughts

Postby  Goodfello » Sat Jun 17, 2017 3:52 pm

Hi there, this is my first post here, after years of reading.

I am excited about the Nations Cup.

Top teams
Finland A
Germany A (with Jordan!)
Brazil A
Canada A
Vietnam A
China SY

Good teams
Spain A
Austria A
Russia A
China Frantic

Those are the most powerful teams i can see on the list. Haven't seen every team or player of the list playing, so i might be very wrong. Some teams have 1 or 2 great players but in a 4 vs 4 this is not enough in my opinion, so i don't include them in the favourites. Hope to see new teams and players coming on top this time!

Hello,
you're missing Brazil B - IMO even stronger than Brazil A if Feage gets back in shape. Also missing Arg A, who always perform really well in NC and usually have great team play.
On the other hand you're definitely exaggerating Jordan factor in Ger A, no offense to any Ger A player, but they're just not the top in TGs. Also Spain A, Russia A and Austria A are far from the top 8 teams.
I'd say there are 8 teams that will compete for the top 4 and I'm very sure they will be top 8 seeds. China SY, China Frantic, VNS A, Brazil A + B, Argentina A, Finland A and Canada A.
My prediction would be -
1) China SY
2) Brazil B
3) Brazil A
4) VNS A
5) Winland A
6) China Frantic
7) Argentina A
8) Canada A (sadly, I'd say the have the most powerful rooster among all teams + the best experience)
I don't really see any other team capable of competing with those 8. There are other good teams (CZ A, Mexico A, USA A, Germany A, Spain A and other) but there's skill gap between those and top 8.

Finland and China Sy are top for sure, no other teams have put so much effort into practising nearly every day.

Top 8 in no order:

China Sy
China Frantic
Braz B
Braz A
Finland A
Vietnam A
Argentina A
Canada A

I wouldnt neglect Hong Kong and Japan. They have very good TG play imo, could surprise with a top 8 i think.

I agree, with the addition of CZ A

Did Argentina originally sign up with their full-strength roster or have Gary et al been added in? Have they practiced much?

With (canada) Dave at the helm, there's no way Canada B can lose.
