TMM is a truly skilled manager; it is impressive that he could possibly do this and sweep the awards. Obviously very unlikely, but this could be the true statement of skill.

My Predictions
Primus TMM (Tyrant), RU Rabid Gerbil
Cont TMM RU Marmaduke
Elig Floyd RU TMM Sleeper Khisanth
ADM TMM RU TUM Sleeper OAB
Fresh OAB RU TMM Sleeper TDO
Challs TMM RU TGG Sleeper Storm Lord
Champ TDO RU Grimm Sleeper Madwand
Adept TMM RU TUM Sleeper Grimm
Init TMM RU TDO
App TMM RU TUM

I hope Managerr's predictions are a joke. Like everyone else I know their are a few players that dominate in tourneys, with TMM being the top of that list. Unfortunately once the game has any one person win every class in a tourney, it does not bode well for the future of the game.

Nor does it bode well when one style wins Primus every time. Why would anyone run any other style to that level?

I wouldn't read too much into it.

Mgr has been fairly out of touch with Duel2 over the past year, I think, and probably doesn't have his finger on the pulse of the tournament scene like he once did.

I think predicting TMM to win every class was meant to be funny, and its also a fairly lazy prediction. If you don't know who is going to win a class, TMM is a good bet.

Even IF these predictions were accurate, the predicted TC winners aren't true favorites. They aren't 51% to win the class. Maybe I have a 15% chance to win Freshmen, TMM has a 20% chance, and LHI has a 5% chance. Meanwhile, there are 20 other managers who each have a 3% chance to win Freshmen, rounding out the remaining 60%.

I have no doubt that TMM is sending some great stuff and is sure to be the heavy favorite in Primus and Contenders, at the very least. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see him with a 5 TC tournament (between the 11 possible living TCs and 5 possible dead TCs). But no way is he running the board.

when one manager runs the board, that's the day I quit tourneys altogether. It's impressive (and DEpressive) enough as it is, much less think about something like that.

I'll be there to make sure he doesn't win rookies

I believe Manager's post was half joke and half "wanting to do predictions because that's what the community wanted" and him not scouring through everybody's stuff because he's busy in real life.

Please don't let any of this get your panties in a bunch.... unless TMM actually does get 11 living TCs Wink

Yeah, I am sure it is not 100 percent serious; and not 100% humor. He certainly has a point that TMM has great warriors, top managerial skill, and some prizes that could help him be the favorite at every level. He puts a lot into this game and has the earned his success;

I hope no one truly gets all upset by the predictions; but, his effort is to be appreciated.

Our opinion .............................
Well, his past predictions have been greatly appreciated. This one - not so much.

No reason to get upset.
It had humor.
It was a perfectly fine post.
The old style was savored. The new one was a flop.

(Again, our very own opinion)
