Squad Reviews

Post by GAZ! » June 2nd, 2017, 7:27 pm

Odius
I guess we'll start with what I consider to be the worst squad after draft, but not by very much. I think top to bottom he has the least strongest roster, but he does have very good pilots in Ioth, unplug, dbz and mattyoung. His anchors are strong with Ioth and unplug and a good sw1 in DBZ, he should have solid attacks and defense. He will definitely win some games on Sundays. If his mids can play well he may find his way into playoffs. Hopefully he can get some points via BD, but his roster looks like the activity won't allow him many BD wins.
Strengths - Anchors, Swing
Weaknesses - Lower Roster, Activity
Overall score: 7.5

Universe 7
Smoking Blue had a pretty good draft. Rushmore, Omega Red, Square Apple and himself should make for a decent team. He has decent anchors in Rabbit! and twistnturn. His defense should be very good considering he can play himself/rushmore/romeo/omega anywhere on defense and know his anchor is safe. The only reason I don't rate him higher is his overall roster strength, top to bottom he's just not as strong as the rest of the squads. He should make playoffs.
He should be able to pull of some BD points as he has pilots with decent pub activity.
Strengths - Swings, Attack, Versatility
Weaknesses - Lower Roster
Overall score: 8.0

Glory Holes
Fin had a pretty solid draft. He secured a couple of very versatile players that could win a lot of games for him. Himself, Hoontar, Wilson and even Attack Mode can play multiple positions well. Wilson may be the second best anchor in league, and Hoontar is strong wherever. I think his overall roster strength is lacking as well, but his top players are game changers and Wilson is a solid anchor. I think fin may try to solo NME a lot because outside of his top 7 he doesn't have much. Pretty sure he's playoff bound.
He should pull a ton of points in BD as well with a very active pub roster.
Strengths - Game changers, Strategy, Anchor, Activity, Versatility
Weaknesses - Lower Roster
Overall score: 8.3

BlackMamba
Eel did pretty well in draft, securing a top 3 anchor in Ice as well as another good anchor in dist, a good swing with Monty, and a solid player in H4B. Eel has a good top lineup and solid depth as well. With eel's leading capability and the strength of his entire roster he will have a very strong squad and a very good shot at playoffs.
Mamba should do fairly well in BD matches due to a decently active roster.
Strengths - Strategy, Roster, Anchors, Swings, Versatility
Weaknesses - Lacks elite players
Overall score: 8.3

Jesus Shat
I think I had a decent draft. I managed to get two solid anchors in pao and merc, with them both able to play multiple positions very well. TC should be able to help whoever is behind him at home feel comfortable, as he's a top 3 s1, I may be able to allow someone else to anchor to free up pao/merc. If the older players I have actually log on, I should be very solid throughout the roster. That being said, I think my strength lies in the overall strength of my entire roster, with only 1 real low player. Good shot at playoffs.
I have a good shot at getting BD's in due to good activity as well.
Strengths - Strategy, Roster, Anchors, Swings, Activity, Versatility
Weaknesses - Activity
Overall score: 8.4

RIP
I think Unlimited had the best draft by a small amount. He secured probably best anchor in clutch, and a couple of other solid anchors in groan and aggi. He also has a lot of versatility with himself, aggi and poem being good at multiple positions. I expect Clutch to be home and aggi/groan to be NME and the rest should play well however you make the lineup. He has probably the best chance in league of making playoffs.
He has pretty good level of activity which should allow him a good chance at a lot of BD wins.
Strengths - Roster, Anchors, Versatility,
Weaknesses - Lacks elite players
Overall score: 8.6

I'd consider clutch the only "elite" player on the squad. Like top 3 at respected position. It's not surprising considering you had 1st pick, which makes you get the best overall player and then wait 11 spots to choose again. That's the only bad thing about 1st pick in a draft that's not top heavy.
