With our Legacy champions crowned last week, only 1 series remains: the Wild Series. POWBOT has been waiting all season for this matchup. Let’s see if POWBOT can go out on top by predicting our Wild Series champions.
Last week the top 2 seeds in Wild progressed to the final, as expected. F2L: Viridian took a convincing 14-6 win over Aussie Pillager Mains and Rumbletusk Shakers achieved a similar 12-6 win over TaggerFans. F2L: Viridian have been dominant in THL’s Wild Series, winning the past 2 seasons, whilst the Rumbletusk Shakers have been building towards a title challenge.
As we did in the other series, let’s take a look at the logos for our finalists and see if they give either team an edge:
F2L: Viridian’s logo is the classic F2L logo with viridian (green) in color. The Rumbletusk Shakers logo uses the art and flavor text of the namesake card. Although the logo appears less threatening, the record of the team, the individual players and the F2L franchise as a whole will surely have the Rumbletusks shaking in their boots.
POWBOT predicts F2L: Viridian to take the title with a score of 18-10. F2L: Viridian hold a distinct advantage in the 5 seed with the other matches all being close. These matches could go either way with all these players being high quality Wild players. Rumbletusk Shakers won their match 14-13 when they met in round 5. Who do I expect to win? F2L overrated, EaW outdated, long have they waited… Rubletusk decimated. F2L back-to-back-to-back.
