Match 1 - Pressed (3-2) vs. Pubes (3-2)
History: Big Cat 6-3, Rone 5-3, KFC 6-2, Feits 5-7
Storylines: This is a play-in game to determine the final playoff spot in Group B. The winner advances to the postseason, and the loser is eliminated. Big Cat and Rone started off 2-0, but have lost two of their last three since then. On the flip side, Pubes had a slow start at 1-2, but now, both teams control their own destiny.
Quotes to Remember: "There is zero pressure, because I don’t care. Hank would probably be mad [if he heard that]. I want to win, I won't throw it, but if I lose, it wont affect me." - Big Cat
"I have studied Pressed's game quite a bit, both fast teams, they work the bottom, we just have to beat them to taking the bottom." - Feits
Clinching Scenarios: Winner advances to thee postseason, loser is eliminated
Question 1 - Winning Team/Losing Block
Question 2 - Total Blocks
Match 2 - Muddah's Wake (2-3) vs. ZARCH (3-2)
History: Balls 4-5, Mush 2-4, Trent 4-5, Robbie 4-5
Storylines: This is the match that could cause pure chaos around the league. If Balls and Mush win, we would have a four-way tie with the entirety of Group A at 3-3. The tiebreaker for that is still to be determined. On the flip side, a ZARCH victory would have them clinch the group and the Purple Hedgehogs would clinch, too. There is expected to be a live audience for this match of people who are directly impacted by the implications of this match.
Quotes to Remember: "This is what you play Jenga for, I want a Jenga off. I want the four-way Jenga off. This is the biggest day possible." - Glenny Balls
"If we lose, we know we send the league into chaos and anarchy, we want to win on behalf of everybody." - Robbie Fox
Clinching Scenarios: If ZARCH wins, they win the group, and Purple Hedgehogs clinch as well. If Muddah's Wake wins, there would bee a four-way tie at 3-3. The tiebreaker for that is TBD.
Question 3 - Winning Team/Losing Block
Question 4 - Total Blocks
Match 3 - Futból Team (3-2) vs. Rangoon Wranglers (2-3)
History: PFT 5-3, Kelly 3-2, Wonton Don 4-5, Chef Donny 2-4
Storylines: This is our second play-in game of the afternoon. No matter what happens, the winner advances to the postseason and the loser is eliminated. This is a rematch of the longest match ever, where we nearly saw a Futból Team forfeit due to timing issues.
Quotes to Remember: "I won't regret [picking Kelly] it unless she is the one that messes it up." - PFT
"The pressure at an all-time high. I think me and Donny might actually practice before, for the first time all season." - The Wonton Don
