...and the desperado is now a vertical spinner slugfest. I at least hope that Minotaur wins.

Black Dragon over Shrederator
War hawk over Ragnarok

Black dragon over War hawk

Final looks really close, I would go Black Dragon just because Minotaur's been so unreliable.

Congrats on your perfect bracket.

Thanks! Was really surprised black dragon won the JD as the rules say aggression can only be scored with an active weapon and minotaur seemed to have the damage points but glad they did, it was well deserved.

If only, texas twister is a pretty good sub though.

Huge, Breaker Box, Wan Hoo, Sow, Sub Zero, Nelly (Much more manouverable than Axe Backwards, secretly hoping we get to see it punted all the way back to the uk though) and Witch doctor. Their srimech counters the lifter and also protects the top from when Whiplash brings their spinner down from above. Plus Whiplash doesnt like big spinners.

P1 is not a great opponent, but it's still cool to see SubZero actually do something for the first time in three seasons.

Imagine getting drawn against Bite Force in three out of four seasons...

Bite Force, Hydra, Yeti, Skorpios, Bronco, Monsoon, Copperhead. Hate to not pick any upsets, but this card isn't doing me any favors.

Season Record: 52-19

Hydra, Yeti, Scorpios, Free Shipping, Monsoon, Copperhead. The main event seems really close to me, going to go with Hypershock as Bite Force seems to win by always getting under its opponent and I think this is the first time it's been put up against something with wedgelets. Aside from Yeti which it kind of struggled with.

That Chronos win was excellent, purely because I didn't think they had a hope in hell. It must have been that awesome Tears for Fears reference that gave them luck.

Also, Bite Force is 3-0, but they look more beatable this season. Two JDs and reduced mobility early in both of those fights. I'm saying they won't repeat as champions.

Who got a rematch?

Also, glad to see hypershock vs bite force being slightly less one sided.
