Klaw goes WTC: This year’s top 10 teams identified, once more with feeling.

Posted by on 3:53 am

Hello dear reader. The time of year is nearly upon us, that magical weekend on which the whole Warmachining world holds its breath in awe, to witness the forging of legends, the tournament of tournaments, the pinnacle of the gaming year: the World Team Championship. And because I think you’re not nearly hyped up enough, I have this little tradition going on, in which I ask all teams that went 5-1 or better the previous year to nominate the teams that will go 5-1 or better this year. So, for my little survey, I polled representatives of the following 2016 teams: Australia Echidna, Germany Black, Canada Goose, Sweden Nobel, Poland Wisents and England Roses. Astute readers will notice the lack of Scotland Irn in that list. The reason for this is that the only member of Scotland Irn who will be present at this year’s WTC will be playing for Steamforged. Yes, that’s Guild Ball. Since traditions are traditions, I first spoke with Doctor Kellerman, also known as Sascha Maisel from team Germany Loreley. He came up with the baseline of: Australia Drop Bear, Canada Beaver, England Lions, Germany Loreley, Italy Michelangelo, Poland Hussar and Sweden Götaland. He considered Sweden Norrland, but after casually taking their Cygnar player’s Hurricane off the table on bottom of one at the Heavy Metal Days1 (with Goreshade1, no less), he decided they would only let him down anyway. His Dark Horse nomination went to Germany Fafnir, how very patriottic of him. Working my way through the polls, this seemed quite the baseline right there. Australia Drop Bear has two members who took last year’s crown, and added some much needed sexyness in the form of Josh Bates. I mean, even if these guys show up in plain grey T-shirts, they’ll still win the best jersey contest by a country mile, courtesy of Batesy taking his one off2. Anyway. Obvious spokesperson Chris Davies came up with Australia Drop Bear, Canadia Beaver, England Lions, German Lovely/Loreley/some word, Norway Hugin, Poland Hussars and Sweden Norrland. I must say, I totally understand the problem with Loreley. It’s not like it’s a part of international culture, no, it’s just a rock on a river, accompanied by some poems about a chick brushing her hair. Speaking of hair, Robby the Kid’s new hairstyle (which is exactly like his old hair style plus an elastic band) brings out all the Jon Snow in him. As a Game of Thrones fan, all I can add to that is moar Jon Snow = moar better.   Loud Chris went with New Zealand as dark horse pick. I so hope they do a haka.   Also speaking of Game of Thrones, the King in the North, Bubba Dalton of last year’s Canada Goose, came up with Australia Drop Bear, his own Canada Beaver, England Lions, Germany Loreley, Poland Hussar, Sweden Götaland and USA Texas. As a northener, I thought it strange for him to value less northern Swedes and even Texans over more northern Swedes, like Sweden Norrland. Google Maps to the rescue – turns out that he lives about as far north as, say, the beautiful town of Venice, which makes it very understandable to go with Italy Michelangelo as his dark horse pick3.     Meanwhile, a wild Tom Guan appeared,...
