Another week down, and another week where both the Immortals go undefeated, and as a result of owning four of the team’s players, Derpy is also undefeated. Which means he took me out last week. It was a closer match, but he still beat me convincingly. To top things off, due to the fact that I now have the 3rd highest point total, the 2-2 record I share with Judentus means I’m now in 3rd place in the league. I do face Judentus this weekend though, and as of the time of this writing I’m down by a lot, but that’s because he has quite a few EULCS players on his team. I have zero this week, so I won’t know how it’ll shake up until Sunday. I’m confident that I will win, the projections said as much. At least he doesn’t have any members of IMT.
So let’s take a look at last week’s matchup. I was facing Derpy and as I’ve mentioned he basically owns IMT so of course they had huge games again and I lost, whereas my score was actually the lowest of all, so I would have lost no matter what. Either of the other teams would have actually won this week if they would have faced Derpy, so I guess it’s bad timing that I was the one playing him that week. Perhaps he will drop a game. I am almost positive that Immortals will, and it will likely be to one of the weaker teams in the league. These types of things happen all the time in sports, and I think that will correlate to pro LoL play.
Anyway, I was pleased with my European last minute pickups’ scores but then they still don’t see very high. As a result I made some changes going into next week. I’ve been giving Rush chances to give me the big points time and again, but I’m watching Dardoch’s stocks rise, and his week-to-week scoreline has been impressive. I’m giving the rookie a go this week and hoping for good things. The rest of my lineup is pretty much the same. I like CLG’s matchups this week so I threw them into the mix, and Derpy actually made some small changes to his lineup, resulting in the aquistion of GBM. I know he’s probably hit or miss, but I’m taking a risk. The final two slots have seemed to be the thing I either need to change each week (team) or I haven’t found a good permanent solution yet (flex). Perhaps GBM will over perform this week like he did when NRG played TSM.
Moving along, let’s see what’s changed on the pro player leader boards:
This week I had absolutely no one in the top 5. That was a streak that I knew would come to an end, but it was sad nonetheless. However, I do still have Piglet and Pobelter putting in work for me overall, scoring 2nd and 3rd place for the spring. Wildturtle leap frogged over them though, but I’ll take two top players over just one anytime. That’s about it for this week. We’ll see what happens in the games and I’ll be back next week with more.
