World Cup Finals - Aresius vs NebulonB

Yeah, I'm reusing this picture, so what?

Did you ever watch the "Mighty Ducks 2" where the Ducks were drafted to represent the US in a junior hockey world tournament?  And they played Iceland and got wrecked, then they played them again in the final?  Well, buckle up kids, because we've got BOTH POD 4 PLAYERS IN THE FINAL.

That's right!  For the first time in World Cup History, two players that played themselves in the POD rounds will meet at the top of the bracket to determine who will be the World Cup Champion!  And the US isn't invited!

Hype:


This is the 3rd time this game will be played.  Back in POD play, Raddus and NebulonB scored a closely fought win, and leaves NebulonB as the only remaining undefeated player.  In spite of going 3-0 in POD wins, none were large enough to seal a POD victory, as Aresius blew out his remaining opponents.  Aresius has also dispatched multiple Raddi commanders en-route to the finals.

Meanwhile, on Feb 16th, at the Austrian Regional, NebulonB lost to Rieekan and Aresius. 

The third time these two will face off.  For NebulonB it means going undefeated in the World Cup and exacting revenge for the Austrian Regional.  For Aresius it means erasing the one blemish on his otherwise stellar World Cup run.  For both, it means the 4th greatest prize in Armada Tournament Gaming - being able to claim that you are the World Cup Champion for 2019!


Biggs Analysis


I'm not going to make a prediction other than that you should do everything in your power to WATCH THIS GAME.  I will edit in the date and time once it is scheduled.  Watch it.

This is high level play at its finest between some of the best players to roll (electronic) dice.

You don't need any more analysis than that.
