Ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to your Tuesday update for the FFFL! Week 5 of the season is in the books so now we turn our eyes forward to week 6. This week has seen the completion of a trade as well as a couple roster moves, so lets jump right in!
The Verminion Lords have hooked up once again with the Melusine Marauders to complete their second trade of the season. This time, they’ll be sending the marmots Juxta did not slay in 1.0 as part of the special marmot defense force, yes specifically those marmots and Lightning to the Marauders. In exchange, they get Shantotto and Freya back!
On the waiver wire meanwhile, the Edelweiss Avengers have dropped Thancred despite having not lost a game with him. They pick up Shadow though who will get right into the action this week.
Last week proved to be a heartbreaker for the Balamb T-Rexaurs as their GM went on a tirade this Sunday. GM Eskalia could not be reached for comment, but league sources confirm he was fined and will be penalized in the draft next year.
With that out of the way, let’s check out the standings as we approach the half-way mark of the season!
Our current standings:
Eastern Division –
Titan’s Banana Hammock (4-1)
Balamb T-Rexaurs (2-3)
Melusine Marauders (2-3)
Red Wings (0-5)
Western Division –
Super Senpai Megaforce (5-0)
Edelweiss Avengers (4-1)
Verminion Lords (2-3)
El Negro Grande (1-4)
BeemBo USA (0-5)
This week’s match-ups after the jump!
In our first match of the week, BeemBo USA travels to the Rogue’s Guild Fight Club to take on the Edelweiss Avengers. The Avengers continue to mix up their team every week, but it seems to be working! So ya know, take that logic.
In our game of the week, Titan’s Banana hammock gets the chance to avenge their only loss of the season. They welcome the Chickabos to The Navel in a match that if you’re not watching, you’d better be dead. And if you’re in jail, break out!
Two teams, 10 players, and one win between them. Cancel your Ambien prescriptions and check it out as El Negro Grande travels to Castle Baron to take on the Dead Wings.
Two teams in the same division with the same record battle it out this week to try and catch up to the second place Banana Hammocks! The Melusine Marauders travel to the Balamb Garden Training Center in hopes of avenging their early season loss against the T-Rexaurs.
GM Juxta Position has been wheeling and dealing to shuffle his line-up in time for this show down with the Super Senpai Megaforce. That’s right, the Gold Saucer will be brimming as the home town Verminion Lords, sponsored by Teledji-Adeledji’s Goods and Trading Services, will defend their home field against the Megaforce.
