Welcome back everyone to the second season of the Final Fantasy Feast League! It’s been a long tumultuous off-season, full of drama, suspensions, rules-dodging, and back alley deals! However, I am proud to declare season two of the league official open!
As we open the second season, there are new faces to be found everywhere. This comes as no surprise since 5 of the 6 teams from last season were either banned from the league, fell apart due to financial concerns, or are currently on trial for murder, sexual misconduct, and/or rampant drug abuse. Only Titan’s Banana Hammock returns to the league this season, eager to build off a strong finish to last year and hopefully take home the gold. They’ve adopted the Navel as their home base, and will be represented by a cast of familiar characters including Yuna, Lulu, Kain, Cyan and the newcomer Fusoya. Now let’s introduce our new teams, starting by rounding out the Eastern Division.
Aniero Grigori returns to the league, helming up the newly formed Red Wings of Castle Baron. His early draft strategy of picking players no one had ever heard of him may serve him well, if only because other teams have no idea how to prepare. His team of Lakeicius, Layle, Brandt, Benjamin, and the Protagonist from FF Legend 2 are eager to make their names known here in the FFFL.
New GM Malky Thera will be running the Melusine Marauders. Based out of Limsa Lominsa, this well rounded team of Shantotto, Freya, Onion Knight, Y’Shtola, and Gilgamesh (FFXIV) are out to prove they’re the captains of the ship city. They’ll have no shortage of competition however, as this season has 3 teams coming to us from Limsa.
Eskalia Ryumasa has reorganized his team after the disaster that was his first season in the league. Adopting the Balamb Garden Training Center as their home, the Balamb T-Rexaurs are ready to take center stage and power to the play-offs this season. Squall returns to the team from last season, joined by Zidane, fan-favorite Rydia, Auron, and Hildebrand!
After taking dead last in season 1, Nika Kayanian has restocked and reloaded with an active off-season. Re-branding her team the Chickabos, she represents our second team to be based out of Limsa Lominsa with her team doing battle in The Missing Member. Tifa, Iceheart, Celes, Merlwyb, and Faris have all signed on, determined to put to rest the demons of last season!
And now on to the Western Division:
First up we have a new GM to the league in Gordor, heading up El Negro Grande. Determined to put Kallo’s offensive strategy from last season to the test, he’s drafted Barret, Raubahn, Vivi, Laguna, and Garnet to defend the slums of Midgar!
However, another new GM to the league will be standing in his way. BeemBo USA will be headed up by Madd Hatter, coming to us all the way from Quarrymill. With a strong second round in the draft that netted him fan-favorite JoeNeverFails, his squad of Wakka, Ramuh (FF14), Locke, and Raw Devil are ready to roll!
Last season’s champion may have had his title and team stricken from the record books, but Kallo Landis has scratched, clawed, and cheated his way back into the league. Now running the Edelweiss Avengers, his team represents our third Limsan squad. Coming to you live from the Rogue’s Guild, Fran, Sazh, Thancred, Robel-Akbel, and Ealdwine aim to pick up where the Kallo Klux Klan left off… for better or for worse.
Making his LBR debut, Senpai joins the league as our newest GM as he takes command of the Super Senpai Megaforce. With a potent line-up including Beatrix, Sabin, Balthier, Rubicante, and Firion, opponents will certainly have a difficult time playing in the Chaos Shrine this season.
And finally, after extensive PED and STD testing, GM Juxta Position returns to the league running the Verminion Lords. Coming to us straight from the Manderville Gold Saucer, and sponsored by Lords of Verminion (Find in the Sleep-aid section of your local pharmacy), Juxta has drafted a legion of living dead including Cloud, Aerith, Haurchefant, Tellah, and the Marmots he slew in 1.0 as part of the Special Marmot Defense Force, yes specifically those marmots!
Match-ups coming your way after the jump!
