Dynamo vs Victory - 540:750
Fighting-Hamsters vs Volcano - 460:250
Catchers vs Gunslingers - 750:640
Harpoons vs Bangtails - 580:490

Unfortunately the run of the defending Champions, London Dynamo, ends in the Quarters. They should be happy given that they were relegated from Honour last season.

The St Helens Volcano end their impressive run as well, they can definitely be satisfied.

The Newcastle Gunslingers lose in a tough match against the Catchers; it was quite unfortunate that they had the most difficult Quarters opponent.

The Bristol Bangtails somewhat shockingly lose and end their journey in the Quarters as well.

---

After defeating the Dynamo, the Ayr Victory reach the Semis and are set to face the Isle of Man Harpoons - that team being very impressive so far, defeating the Bangtails and booking themselves this Semis duel.

Will the Victory go to the Finals or have to "settle" for another 3rd Place Match?

Meanwhile, the solid Fareham Fighting-Hamsters had a relatively easy match against the Volcano - however, they will now face off against the mighty Plymouth Catchers, which had an impressive victory over the Gunslingers.

Will the Hamsters rise to new heights or will the Catchers finally win the CWC, having three Runner-up and one Third Place placements from past attempts?

Maybe a RP from QW is necessary for the Hamsters-Catchers Match.

We'll see.

But seriously though. I know Harpoons are actually a pretty good team (team AVG 88 in 4th league? Damn!) but it was still really surprising. Nevertheless, I think that Catchers will get the trophy.

I feel about the same. Losing to Dario is no shame, but I wonder if things would have turned out differently if I would have stayed up and cheered for my team instead of going to bed early prepared for a hard day at work.

So Victory vs Hamsters oO TBH I kinda thought it would be Catchers vs Harpoons. It will be a very interesting, yet somehow unexpected final!

Not really, Catcher and Hamsters are actually closer than their league standings suggest.

Hamsters are 2-2 against the Catchers, but have a -480 difference. However, 3 of the games have been in snitch range, and the other one Gilliam could have caught a suicide snitch to make the deficit about 200 points less.

So, the Hamsters were underdogs, but not too big of an underdog at all.

It was the opposite for me. :( Managed to beat you in the championship and lost in the CWC the next day.
