Hello everyone! Eskalia Ryumasa here with your Final Fantasy Feast League week 8 match-ups! We are three weeks away from the play-offs and every vote counts!
Three teams decided to shake things up this week, making moves that they hope will line them up nicely for a play-off run! First up, Bondage N Servitude has decided to cut Beatrix, not believing their long time tank has it in her to take them to the promised land. Instead, they’ve chosen to sign Terra off the waiver wire. Critics were quick to question the use of Terra in the tank role, but when asked about the move, team GM Juxta Position just screamed “MAGIC DEFENSE” into the microphone for approximately 20 minutes.
Although Hengr’s Crucible doesn’t make many moves, they decided to make an upgrade at the bench-warmer position this week. Faris will have to find another team to serve Gatorade to, as Thancred has been signed off waivers. Our reporters reached out to Thancred about agreeing to terms with a team that didn’t have an open starting position, but his primary concern seemed to be whether he would be participating in or cleaning up after the many orgies common on Hengr’s Crucible.
Lastly, the Kallo Klux Klan has decided to make a roster move despite sitting in first place. Team Ranged DPS Rinoa has been cut from her second team this season, and will be heading back to the free agent market while FFXI Black Mage Shantotto will be immediately filling her place on the active roster. Fans of the team were pleasantly surprised to learn Professor Shantotto is in fact an adult, despite her appearance.
Over on the scoreboards, the race for the playoffs is in a full sprint to the finish. Despite being 70% of the way through the regular season, every team still has a chance to make the play-offs, although some have it more dire than others. The Kallo Klux Klan picked up another win last week over Titan’s Banana Hammocks. This puts the hammocks in a tough spot at 2-5, as one more loss is likely to spell the end of their season. Meanwhile, the Kallo Klux Klan sits at 5-2 and in 1st place. The Mordion Gaolbirds barely eked out a win over the Besaid Butt Plugs, pulling themselves into a tie for fourth place and out of the basement. Coming off their fourth straight loss however, the butt plugs now find themselves even with their week 7 opponents. Both teams are at 3-4, and will be hungry for a playoff spot. Lastly, Hengr’s Crucible picked up their second win of the season over Bondage N Servitude thanks to a fired up performance from Prishe. Both teams are at 4-3 with Hengr’s Crucible holding the tie-breaker and second place overall.
The current standings are:
1st: Kallo Klux Klan (5-2)
2nd: Hengr’s Crucible (4-3) (2-0 in tiebreaker games with BNS)
3rd: Bondage N Servitude (4-3) (0-2 in tiebreaker games with HCB)
4th: Besaid Butt Plugs (3-4) (1-1 in tiebreaker games with MGB)
4th: Mordion Gaolbirds (3-4) (1-1 in tiebreaker games with BBP)
6th: Titan’s Banana Hammock (2-5)
