Good evening everyone and welcome to your Week 8 outlook for the FFFL! It has been a crazy week full of trades and waiver wire pick ups! As such, most of our update is going to be looking at roster transitions today, so let’s dive right in!
The catalyst has certainly been the Verminion Lords who have set a league record by managing to swing EIGHT trades in one day. In an unprecedented move, GM Juxta Position has cleaned house and will field an entirely different team than he did last week. First he swung a deal with GM Madd Hatter who released Raw Devil to obtain Godbert off waivers. No sooner did they acquire him though, than did they send him over to the Verminion Lords in exchange for Shantotto.
Next up, Juxta got Poppa Woody on the phone and swung a trade that saw Titan’s send Kain over in exchange for Freya. He then dropped Freya to pick up Hildebrand on waivers. Not done yet, Poppa Woody then sent Hildebrand over to Juxta in exchange for getting Kain BACK and for “considerations to be named later”.
This was not the only trade of that type Juxta pulled off however. Nika then traded him Tifa in exchange for Y’Shtola. She immediately dropped Y’Shtola to acquire Iroha off waivers who was then swapped to get Tifa back along with again “considerations to be named later.”
STILL NOT DONE! He then talked to Aniero and did yet another trade of this ilk. Aniero sends protagonist to Juxta for Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh is dropped to waivers to acquire Hovernyan. Hovernyan is then swapped to Juxta to get Protagonist back with once again “considerations to be named later.”
AND STILL NOT DONE! Lastly, Juxta managed to get in touch with Malkythera. Malky dropped Onion Knight to acquire Mog for the Melusine Marauders, but immediately traded the moogle away to get Aymeric. No considerations to be named later.
Our current standings:
Eastern Division –
Titan’s Banana Hammock (5-2)
Balamb T-Rexaurs (3-4)
Melusine Marauders (3-4)
Red Wings (0-7)
Western Division –
Super Senpai Megaforce (7-0)
Edelweiss Avengers (6-1)
Verminion Lords (3-4)
El Negro Grande (2-5)
BeemBo USA (0-7)
This week’s match-ups after the jump!
First up this week, the Edelweiss Avengers put their 6-1 record on the line as they travel down to the Balamb Garden Training Center to square off with the T-Rexaurs. This is their first and only match-up of the season, and one that means a lot to the two GMs running the teams.
Despite picking up a shocking win last week, the Melusine Marauders decided to make a change, swapping out Onion Knight to eventually obtain Aymeric. They defend the Wolves Den as Titan’s Banana Hammock comes to town for a big match in the division race.
Angry from a loss last week, the Chickabos look to take it out on the Red Wings as they travel to Castle Baron this week. It’s no secret the Red Wings have struggled this year, but a game on the road in the FFFL is always a dangerous one.
El Negro Grande will hit the road this week, traveling down the Murderer’s Row known as they Chaos Shrine. They take on the unbeaten Super Senpai Megaforce who looks to continue on the road to a perfect season.
The new look Verminion Lords head down to Quarrymill this week to take on winless BeemBo USA. BeemBo made their first move of the year this week, unsurprisingly in a trade with Juxta. Will a team of 5 fresh faces gel in time for the match or will BeemBo finally get on the board?
