I've seen foo's name on either steam or psn's ranking before, I'll have to check to see which it was....glad to see parry, eastgold and gunthor representing the dailys!

Although I sure wish pools were actual pools and not just a double elimination bracket that feeds into a larger double elimination bracket. (Why even call it pools?!)

After talking to Gunthor, here is what the bracket looks like. http://challonge.com/DKT8SCR Foo is also tagged as a Stream player, although he has played a lot of mr.n on ranked aswell.

Adelheid vs Sanchez is a toss up, but ill go with Adelheid.
Parry > FireLyger
Gunthor > Foo
Meansaltine vs Eastgold is also a toss, but I'm cheering for eastgold so eastgold it is.

Parry > Adelheid
Gunthor > FireLyger
Sanchez > Eastgold

The rest of the matches are probably also a toss up....

Gunthor > Sanchez
Gunthor > Adelheid
Gunthor > Parry
Parry > Gunthor.

Though I've never played Gunthor, Mr N absolutely eats Baz.

Here's hoping he plays and Represent Mr. N like I would. By complaining!

Everyone things they have a good match against Baz, until they play Gunthor.

Gunthor lost two sets to Sanchaz in pools though.

Pools just refers to breaking up a bracket into smaller chunks before semis and finals and not to the format used; it's used for both a double-elim pool and a round robin pool.

Edit: Gunthor's a great player, but I think you're severely underrating Sanchaz and Adelheid, especially since both of them have high calibur experience against The Baz (Sanchaz also beat Gunthor to advance out of winner's); I think that those 2 are the 2 best players in vanilla right now.

Eastgold/meansaltine should be fun to see. I'm gonna go for eastgold as well, since there needs to be more Kenny love in this world.

No matter who wins between adelheid and sanchez, parry is gonna be in for a rough time.

Based off of what parry and gunthor have told me, gunthor seems to have figured out the matchup with s-kill a lot, mainly referring to what he knows about trick. I think the only way he doesn't win this tournament is for Sanchez to knock him out. I don't know if adelheid still feels the same way vs Baz after facing Sanchez's Baz, but I'm willing to bet Gunthor is the best Baz in the game right now, so I wonder if she would be caught off guard at all if they faced each other.

No matter what, this top8 will be hype!

Everyone things they have a good match against Baz, until they play Gunthor.

It's not even vs The Baz, it's vs Gunthor when you play him.

I THINK Foo is a Mr. N?

As far as I know, Foo plays Mr. N and Stream, and maybe some Sensei. He chooses Stream vs Redacted, which is pretty surprising to me, so I would tend to say he is a Stream main at this point.

Very nice win by Gunthor.

Adelheid figured out that you can kick Baz as he crosses, but never tried to trick as he was setting up his kick.
