Wynn Predicts The Things (Week Two)
by: Wynn Wittaker - April 3rd, 2018 - 03:37pm

As promised in my Week One Wrap, here are our much anticipated PREDICTIONS for Week Two of Madness 2018.

Hayashibara Division:

[1] Jewell Ravenlock -vs- [9] Romeo MacKenzie

Romeo had some pretty solid luck in Week One against Jewell’s former Royal teammate Luna, but I think this may be where it runs out. Now granted, it’s been awhile since we saw much in the way of action from the Empress and when we have, it’s been a lot of yada yada Kalamere drama and oh my heart. Don’t worry, Jewell, you give us heart palpitations when we see you too. I think she’ll send all of our hearts a-fluttering when she lays the smackdown on Ro.

Prediction: Jewell wins, 5-3 in 10.

[5] Baphelocutis -vs- [13] Strawberry

In Round One, Strawberry put down a rather infamous slaver while Baph put down a five year old boy. You’d think that maybe based on that, the lady would have it in the bag. Don’t get me wrong, the Beginner’s Luck phenomenon is real, but it’s hard to believe it will hold up against tried and true experience, the likes of which Baphelocutis has plenty. I think the Wardrac takes it, but it’ll be a narrow victory.

Prediction: Baph wins, 5-4 in 14.

[6] Xanth van Bokkelen -vs- [3] Matt Simon

Xanth had a hell of an opener against Leena Vincent in Round One and in Round Two, he’s lucky enough to go up again my favorite Team Fist Colonel, Matt Simon. Xanth is a badass and all of that but I’m contractually obligated to always pick Matt Simon. I think Xanth will put up a good fight but yes, Matt takes it in the end.

Prediction: Matt wins, 5-3.5 in 11.

[7] Ebon Ilnaren -vs- [2] Ekthbjlgke Smith

E Smith has had quite the year when it comes to dueling in general. He is the latest Overlord and even got himself an Opal over in the Outback. The former Governor is a nice guy? Yeah, we’ll go with that. That said, I think he’s a nice guy that is going to get absolutely steamrolled by E. Sorry, Ebon.

Prediction: Ekthbjlgke wins, 5-2 in 6.

Wynn’s Weekly Wrap

Week 1 Madness Wrap Up & Week 2 Predictions

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, here were are again for another year of DoS Madness! After a brief sabbatical during which I got married (Avery is Best Girl!), I am back and here to report all of your Madness Sports News. I got back a little too late to write up some pre-Madness predictions, but let’s do a wrap up of Week One and see how Week Two might play out. Without further ado

Week One Wrap

Week One saw ten bouts of action and six total byes. While many matches went the way most expected, there were a couple surprises. Will we see more of that as our top seeds work into the fray? I suppose we’ll find out soon! Let’s break it down.

Hayashibara Division:

[8] Eva Luna -vs- [9] Romeo MacKenzie

Despite their relatively close seeding, most expected Rhydin’s favorite babealicious doc to handle Dirty’s rookie brawler fairly handily. Ro has relatively little experience in the rings though he was recently named the Squire of Dockside by current baroness and Dirty veteran, Terry King. Though I would have hedged my bets with Eva as so many did in their brackets, Romeo swept the good Doc right off her feet and walked away with a solid 5-1.5 in 11 round win.

[5] Baphelocutis est Lathadoscia -vs- [12] Nikolai Allen

What in the nine hells were they thinking with this pairing? A decorated warlord dragon something or other, known for his brutal in ring tactics, versus what had to either be a midget or more likely, a five year old. A five year old? Yes. In Madness. Well. Alright then. Though Nikolai got plenty of points for being absolutely adorable, Baph made quick work of the little boy with a score of 5-2.5 in 11. I’m sure he’s proud of himself. Way to go Baph, you probably made a little kid cry.

[4] Anubis Karos -vs- [13] Strawberry

In a match that most likely expected would end in a collaring, it seemed like it would be a quick match for everyone’s not so favorite slaver. The pair met surprisingly on time wit   . . .

Prizes!

First Place, Myria Graziano, claims the Overlord Challenge (to be issued within 1 week after the results of E’s challenge to Jewell is officially completed) and a Baron Challenge Grant, to be gifted before this coming Sunday (5/7).

Second Place, Crunchem, elects 6 WoL to be applied to his record. This should bump the ogre up to Grand Master!

Runners Up, Ellisa Morgan and Baph, receive 3 WoL to their record.

Congratulations also to the Bracket Pool Winners!

Dris takes the 1,000 noble pool, edging out Anubis by vitur of being the only person in the pool to pick Myria as the champion.

Jak of Swords took top position in the 100 silver pool, tying Anubis and Dris who all finished with 77 points.

Thanks to all who participated, both as contestants and those who entered the pool. And, naturally, we cannot forget the callers who volunteer to make it all happen.

It was another successful tournament and I hope to see you all back again next year!
