Ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to your Tuesday night update as to what is going on in the FFFL! Week 7 is officially upon us. It’s the second half of the season. A chance for some of our middle of the pack teams to make a push for play-off contention and a chance for some of our bottom rung teams to provide me with material on Sundays.
First over to the waiver wire! For this first time this season, neither the Verminion Lords or the Edelweiss Avengers made a move, meaning they will finally climb the waiver order a little! However, both the Melusine Marauders and the Balamb T-Rexaurs decided to shake things up after their tilt last week. The Melusine Marauders cashed in their waiver position to claim Kooky Persona off waivers. She’ll replace Haurchefant and join the Marauders this week for their match-up with the Chickabos. Meanwhile, the Balamb T-Rexaurs have decided to end the experiment with Hildebrand, feeling he was not panning out the way they intended. They’ve cut him from the team to sign Prishe. We reached out to Prishe who had this to say: “It’s about damn time! We’re gonna beat the hell out of whoever we’re playing this week!”
In other league news, word officially broke today that next season will see the inclusion of injuries into the FFFL! The move is made with the intent of reviving the bench position as well as to encourage trades and waiver moves. More details on how injuries will work as we draw closer to the end of the season!
Our current standings:
Eastern Division –
Titan’s Banana Hammock (4-2)
Balamb T-Rexaurs (3-3)
Melusine Marauders (2-4)
Red Wings (0-6)
Western Division –
Super Senpai Megaforce (6-0)
Edelweiss Avengers (5-1)
Verminion Lords (2-4)
El Negro Grande (2-4)
BeemBo USA (0-6)
This week’s match-ups after the jump!
Our first match of the week sees the Edelweiss Avengers traveling to the Midgar Slums for a match with El Negro Grande. It should be noted that the last time these two teams met up in The Rogue’s Guild Fight Club, it produced one of our closest matches of the season.
Next up, the Chickabos will defend their home turf in the Missing Member as the Melusine Marauders make the cross-town trip for their match. The Marauders are brimming with confidence after acquiring Kooky Persona off waivers, but the undefeated Chickabos certainly have no shortage of confidence.
The Super Senpai Megaforce will travel to Quarrymill this week to take on winless BeemBo USA. The Megaforce will need to not take BeemBo lightly, lest this become a trap game for them.
After acquiring Prishe off waivers, the T-Rexaurs now descend into the Navel for their second match of the season with Titan’s Banana Hammock. A tough game lies ahead for them, as the Banana Hammocks come off a painful loss last week.
And finally in our mid season toilet-bowl, the Verminion Lords visit Castle Baron for a game with the Red Wings. The Verminion Lords faced the toughest first half in the league, and should have a couple of easier opponents to try and get back into things. That said, over-confidence can be hazardous in the FFFL.
