As for the UK last week, it is now France’s turn to align two sets in at “home”. On this sixth week of the tournament, teams GO and BMS are challenged by Wild Blast and Reason Gaming.
The first set features Luffy and his comrades from GO versus Vegapatch’s Wild Blast team (representing Spain, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands). So far, the French have faced 2 defeats for only one victory. This week, they can use tactical advantage as they play at “home”. This position allows them to know the characters chosen by their opponents in advance, giving them an edge and the opportunity to bet on surprising character choices. If they go for surprise indeed, Akainu and his usual diverse picks should come as a potential high ground.
Meanwhile, this could be another time for Valmaster to shine with Chun-Li against tough opponents like Momi, who often uses Cammy as a main pick. If team GO has to show what they’re made of once again, Vegapatch and his teammate will give them the strongest opposition.
