Excluding Es for my opinion here, to not just say I think my squad gonna win this, I've the strong feeling So Brave is the best candidate to win this league so far.
It's a close race, Lee and Resi do a fine job so far aswell and could also turn out taking this years cup away. So Brave showed its not ez to beat them, with two ties, one win and no loss so far. Their roster is pretty strong/active and they clearly have no issues with weak spots, while azela is a solid leader and brings what it needs to win a league. I think this years league is the league with the closest race the first place: While Still I Rise and Baby Jesus having a hard time getting wins so far and cant hardly concidered beeing top candidates for 1st place, Leegendary, LVB's, So Brave and Elitestar all have showed that they are squads to expect putting up a hard fight and win games. Also the combinations between the last four squads in matches have been very mixed in w:l relation, which for i think everyone of them still offers the possibility for themselve to dominate their following matches and place themselve in finals. There is still no best lineup one squad could come up with that would 120% beat any other top lineup from the other squads.
