Altador Cup Predictions
With the Altador Cup fast approaching the tensions are already starting to rise with people starting to pick their teams and gentle bickering about the chances of Faerieland managing to keep out of the bottom position when they’re no longer even in the air. Just remember; slushies are only to be thrown at customers and kidnapping the opposition is not allowed.
With the Altador Cup fast approaching the tensions are already starting to rise with people starting to pick their teams and gentle bickering about the chances of Faerieland managing to keep out of the bottom position when they’re no longer even in the air. Many people already know exactly who they are going to support on the basis, and there are even some deluded fools who will continue to loyally support Moltara this year on the basis that they might have improved. But there are many newcomers to the sport of Yooyuball and the excitement of the Altador Cup who perhaps need a helping hand in choosing the team that they wish to support. Now, I’m not giving definite predictions here so nobody is allowed to get stroppy with me when your team loses, however if you’re wallowing in confusion as everyone gets steadily more excited then this might be the article for you.
There are several teams which have steadily come in the bottom sections of the tournament year after year, although they still have die hard supporters who will of course assure you that this year WILL be their year. The most obvious would be Faerieland who are perhaps simply too nice to play the hard and fast game of Yooyuball, and whose fans are just too quiet for the screaming competitions, but they got quickly overtaken in the art of failure by the fairly new Moltaran team. Perhaps it’s a lack of experience, perhaps the fumes of Moltara have addled the teams brains but it seems like they can’t do anything very well. Maybe their supporters are right and this year will be their year, but after the last couple of years appalling performance you can’t blame me for being very sceptical of that fact. In fact I’ll eat my hat if they get above the 17th position. To be fair though they perhaps have more reason to be useless than the hosting team of the tournament; you’d be forgiven for believing that considering the Altador Cup is indeed held in Altador that they’d have a strong team to field. The only reason they managed to scrape a place above the Moltaran team last year was because they could at least hurl slushies fast enough to keep them from landing the bottom place, but their total of two wins in the game which they themselves created was frankly appalling. In any place, these aren’t teams I’d touch with a bargepole unless I was forced at the end of a Ylanas Blaster.
