Klaw goes WTC: The top 10 teams identified, again!

Posted by on 6:29 am

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is that time of year again. The biggest, baddest, thrillingest, coolest, and other superlativest Warmachine and Hordes event of the year is almost upon us, which makes it my solemn duty to … predict the winners, like I did last year. The setup of the survey is simple: ask all teams that went 5-1 or better last year, which teams they think will go 5-1 this year. To add some spice, I asked them for a dark horse too. A dark horse is a team no one is really preparing for, but who could really be good. For reference, the following teams would get polled: Finland blue, both Australian teams, Poland Leaders, Germany Dichter Denker, and England Roses. I added some bonus people as well, because reasons. I set upon my task by spamming people on Facebook. The first person to respond was the venerable Doctor Sascha Maisel, proud member of Germany Black, formerly known as Germany Dichter Denker. He came up with the following list: Poland Wisents, Scotland Irn, Sweden Nobel, Germany Black, Finland Väinämöinen1 and Australia Koala. Going by some twitter comments of the past weeks, this might be a list of usual suspects. The only twist there might be the nomination of Koala (with Jeff Galea, Pottsy, Aaron Whale and double Bates) over Echidna, with international superstars Tom Guan and Colin Hill, to name just two. I can understand that logic. A koala looks the most like the most dangerous Australian animal in existence … a dropbear2. His dark horse pick was Austria 1 (or Austria Schnitzel, if I’m not mistaken). We’ll get to them later.   Anyway, after this good talk with Doctor Maisel my spam start to yield results. I catch a certain Tom Guan in his natural habitat, namely on a plane. He comes up with the following list: Australia Enchinda (sounds better than Echidna, you have to admit), Germany Black, Poland Wisents, Scotland Irn, Sweden Nobel and USA Red. It becomes apparent here that the USA don’t really have one top team leading the charge. They have three very solid teams, but it seems we’re missing that one all-star lineup. Some say it might be the MK3 effect on team USA Blue, but all I hear are excuses. The Guan therefore seems to choose for the experience of Puryear and the pure star quality of Flanzer3, something I can’t blame him for. His dark horse pick is Norway red. As a Belgian, I can’t ever admit that I would respect them enough to compare them to such a noble animal (I would rather use “troll” than “horse”4), but we’re totally in agreement about the dark part.   The next person to answer the call was Ryan Evans from England Roses. He went with the following list: Belgium Prinzesschen and the Fabulettes5, Germany Black, Poland Wisents, Scotland Irn, USA Red and Australia Echidna. In that order. For obvious reasons, he’s my new man crush now. Such fantastic choices. What a great guy. As a dark horse pick, he went with Russia Wolves, something I really can’t disagree on. Awesome dude. So nice.   Anyway. The next person I managed to get a hold of was Marcin Mycek from Poland Wisents. He went with the following list: Sweden Nobel, Sweden...
