Ladies and gentlemen it must be tuesday again because it’s time for an FFFL update! Last week saw a departure from the world of the feast as our players took part in Ballista as part of our Vana’diel outreach program. Next season, the FFFL is proud to announce two of our games will be played overseas in Vana’diel to help bring in fans from other planes!
Last week saw some incredible outcomes including our biggest blowout in league history as BeemBo USA was decimated by a margin of 70% in their match-up with the Super Senpai Megaforce. We can finally confirm that the Balamb T-Rexaurs won their matchup against the Red wings thanks to a strong performance from Vincent. While no fans actually attended the game, apparently one of the security cameras was able to get footage of the match.
Most of the teams in the league decided to stand strong with their roster this week, but the ever changing Verminion Lords and Edelweiss Avengers both made a move to continue shaking things up. The Verminion Lords acted first, dropping Setzer to obtain The Marmots that Juxta did NOT kill in 1.0 as part of the Special Marmot Defense Force, yes specifically those marmots. Setzer was disappointed by the news he had been cut, saying “It’s their mistake. If someone picks me up off waivers next week, I hope I get to play against them and make em pay.”
The Edelweiss Avengers meanwhile parted ways with Sazh, one of their few remaining draft picks and instead chose to draft Aldo onto the team. We reached out to GM Kallo who said quote “We may or may not beat the Chickabos when we play them… but it won’t be any fun for Nika.” More on this story as it develops. In other league news, after being cut from the Avengers last week and failing to be picked up on waivers, Ealdwine has announced his retirement from the FFFL. We reached out for a quote and he said, “I wasn’t supposed to be in this anyway. Some moron drafted me.”
Our current standings:
Eastern Division –
Titan’s Banana Hammock (3-1)
Balamb T-Rexaurs (2-2)
Melusine Marauders (1-3)
Red Wings (0-4)
Western Division –
Super Senpai Megaforce (4-0)
Edelweiss Avengers (3-1)
Verminion Lords (2-2)
El Negro Grande (1-3)
BeemBo USA (0-4)
This week’s match-ups after the jump!
In our perhaps toughest to watch match-up of the week, the Melusine Marauders hit the road and head down to Quarrymill for a match with BeemBo USA. As BeemBo returns home, they’ll be desperate to get that first win of the season to get things rolling while the Marauders struggle to stay relevant in their division.
El Negro Grande came within a whisper of pulling out the upset last week and they’ll look to bunker down at home against the invading Super Senpai Megaforce. The Megaforce is coming off our largest margin of victory ever so confidence will be high, but will that be enough to take the win against El Negro Grande?
Much like BeemBo USA, the Castle Baron Red Wings are getting desperate to pull down their first win of the season. It’ll take a strong performance in the Navel as they go against Titan’s Banana Hammock. Sandstorms are expected during the game so we’ll see if that affects things!
The Balamb T-Rexaurs have fought their way back into being relevant but a difficult showdown on the road sees them travelling to The Missing Member to face off with the unbeaten Chickabos. Rumor has it they’ve promoted Terra to team captain for reasons we can only speculate on. Will it be enough or will the Chickabos continue to roll?
Both teams that made a waiver wire move will play against each other this week, meaning one GM will look brilliant while the other will be the goat. The Verminion Lords, sponsored by Haurchefant’s Shield Repair Service, will travel to the Rogue’s Guild Fight Club for a match-up that could spell out the future of the division.
