Division 3 playoffs are underway and to make sure you guys
know who to bet on Kwibus has predicted it for you!
At last weíve reached the playoff stage of EQL. The group
stage of division three was a huge success with only a few
teams struggling in activity, but besides that there was
lots of activity and the difference in skill wasnít too
extreme either. Special mention to Mob of Oddballs who had a
hard time, but lots of kudos to them for playing most
matches if not all.
Iím going to have a look at the teams that reached the
playoffs and make a prediction of the upcoming playoff
games. Iíll also mention the star player of the team for
They reached the number one spot with relative ease winning
all their matches and are the favorite for the division
three title. This Portuguese/English combination (and
Flash/de) is one of the more experienced teams. Some players
could as well play in division two. Only problem they have
is their connection.
I donít really think they got a star player although Iím
leaning towards Mushi, but with his poor activity and mostly
crappy ping he canít really shine, which is a good thing for
2. Boomstick Ownatorís
Runner up and thus the biggest competitor for Quinas? Iím
not too sure about that. They got their asses handed by
Quinas twice on dm2 for the group stage and Comfortably Numb
beat them 2-1. Besides that they won all their group games.
I donít know BO very well so itís hard for me to judge.
Their loss to Comfortably Numb was (according to BO) an off
day, but if that is true is up to them to prove in the
Star player: glt
3. Comfortably Numb
A struggling start in the group stage made it look like CN
were upsetting some good teams later, but I think those
later games are more representative for Comfortably Numb's
abilities. Having beat other playoff teams like BO, Baconmen
and Fallen Angels at the end of the group stage, but having
lost to Quinas, in a blaze and Bloodpunch earlier in the
I think CN can beat any team, but in the end Quinas will be
a bit too much. A lot will depend on their opponents ability
to play during the weekend as CN's Hungarian players canít
Star player: Akken
This Swedish squad relies a lot on the skills of Zaiko who
is probably the best individual player running around in
division three. But of course he canít do it on his own and
thatís exactly the weak spot of this team. The others ainít
top division three material, besides aki of course, but he
didnít play that much so will we see him in the playoffs? If
so they can upset anyone.
Star player: Zaiko
5. Fallen Angels
This group of mostly QW veterans cruised to the playoffs.
Playing with whatever lineup they could put up. If they had
four online then it was those four who played not minding
the opponent. Like most teams itís important to win the
division title playing with your best lineup and thatís
probably the hardest part for FA. If they can field their
best lineup they are an absolute contender for the division
three title in my opinion.
Star player: Karnage (US)
Mixed feelings about this team. They got such different
results with the same lineup that itís hard for me to
predict what they are gonna do. Besides that I havenít seen
them play since mid March so I wonder if they are still out
there? What are they up too in the playoffs? Having results
in the group stage that could easily make them favorites,
but also results that suggest they wonít make it to the next
Star player: Stickman
7. In a Blaze
Possibly one of the teams can still upset anyone. They are
under the guidance of the mighty fix which certainly helps
them. They can field a mighty lineup, but I wonder if they
ever played with their best possible lineup? Looking at
their results they reached the playoffs with quite a few
different players playing so Iím not sure they are able to
field a consistent lineup.
Star player: Ande
8. Tactical Powerless Amebas
These amebas are probably surprised they reached the playoff
stage and well thatís what they should be. They played
pretty much all of their games which were mostly lost, but
since Na Fianna decided to quit EQL near the end of the
season they ended up just above the line. This friendly team
wonít reach the next round.
Star player: Cujo.
The playoff matches.
Quinas vs Tactical Powerless Amebas 3 Ė 0
This match will be nice for Quinas to keep up their good
morale by whooping TPA across TB3 maps. TPA doesnít stand a
chance, the difference between these teams is just too
Boomstick Ownatorís Ė In a Blaze 3 Ė 1
A lot will depend if they can field the best line ups, but I
guess thatís the same for all teams so from now on I will
just assume both teams will field their best lineup.
BO have shown that they are a solid team so far and they
wonít let In a Blaze upset them. The games will be tight and
tense, but BO will walk away with the win.
Comfortably Numb Ė Bloodpunch 3 Ė 2
This could go either way. Normally CN should take this match
home, but BP have shown they can really be monsters so why
not this match? With CNís dominance on dm3 I doubt BP will
be able to win it. Dm2 though should be won by BP as CN only
managed to win it once, but that happened to be during their
last match in which they actually pretty much owned Fallen
Angels on dm2.
Since I think CN has the edge on dm3 they will win this
Baconmen Ė Fallen Angels 1 - 3
If Peppe, IBA and Karnage play for FA then they will
certainly win this match, but since this is highly unlikely
it will be a tense and tight game, but I still think FA will
win this match.
Baconmen will be able to steal a map because Zaiko goes on a
rampage, but thatís it.

Not sure about the current div3 activity as I haven't seen
any of the 8 teams at all this weekend:)
I tried to contact bloodpunch twice, but didn't get a
Maybe if you read this we want to schedule for next weekend!

first one correct :P

Glad that div3 has now predictions aswell. At last! Thank

Quinas is no more a "Portuguese/English combination" than is
Portuguese/Irish or Portuguese/German. We have only one
English player in the team. Did you think that the
tricolour flag next to my name was a St. George's Cross? It
is dangerous to imply that an Irish person is English,
people have been killed for far less.
Other than that, good predictions zapp... nice to see a bit

Hedgepig: It's Kwibus you should put on your targetlist, not
zappater. Doesn't matter to me who you choose though *evil
#72009-05-05 16:56 by Kwibus (213.46.205.XXX)
Excuse me Hedge :)
I actually thought I wrote Portugese/British combination,
but I also didnt notice it when I read it before handing it
over to Zap:)
#82009-05-05 18:34 by Hooraytio (89.160.23.XXX)
do irish ppl consider themselves british? or is that a
deadly sin too :P
#92009-05-05 23:43 by Hedgepig (81.84.105.XXX)
Ohhhh caralho... Kwibus, what do they teach you in those
Belgian schools? :) No, we are not British. Yes, it is
also a mortal sin to say so.
But indeed you are right and I should know that. Ireland
isn't british indeed... doh!
Shameful display from me :D
#112009-05-06 15:55 by random noob (62.68.168.XXX)
what do u mean about star player?? lot of frag or lot of
killed rls, or good teamplayer?? i think this star player
stuff is sux. humiliating to the rest.. I can be a star
player if i take all fucking thing wich is in my way, with
12 ms. Especially here in nub division, there is no real
starplayers, maybe mushi, who shouldnt play in this div :P.
#122009-05-07 09:37 by Kwibus (62.41.97.XXX)
Originally I added in my write up that the starplayer thingy
can be controversial and open for discussion, but we decided
not to add that in the definate post.
But i'm happy finally someone anonymous decided to make an
troll post about it :D
A starplayer is something I added for flavour and I don't
know why it should humiliate their teammies. They ain't
blind and can see for themselves that someone is better yes
or no. It doesn't matter unless someone has a huge ego and
gets hurt by something harmless like this:)
#132009-05-07 20:08 by random noob (62.68.168.XXX)
Stats tells better who is the star player, but checking the
games tells more, but ok, u wrote it down, so i accept it,
its ur text, ur summary. gl hf
#142009-05-13 17:08 by Hooraytio (89.160.23.XXX)
random noob = lanix ? :))
always on about the stats after mixed 4on4s
#152009-05-15 01:44 by random noob (62.68.168.XXX)
No, just a man with no name, but not lanix :).

Tonight BO vs CN and FA vs Quinas.
Predicion: CN - BO 3-2 or 2-3.. heck no idea how this will
end up really. BO will take dm2 and CN will take DM3
normally and the last time e1m2 was a thriller so I can go
FA vs Quinas. FA will win if Karnage and Peppe play, but so
far only Karnage seems to be on their roster. As of yet only
3 are on their available list. Let\'s hope they get 4.
Quinas will have a tough match, but normally they should
take it home.
