Lazy Laundry Tournament II - January 2011 Bracket

Posted December 29th, 2010 at 10:59 AM by Elginb
One of my favorite parts of doing these Lazy Laundry tournaments is arranging the bracket and trying to make interesting armies out of often sub-par pieces. After I’ve built the first half of the playing field, the armies really start to get hodge-podgey—but that doesn’t mean the hodge-podge army can’t be dangerous. In the last tournament, the army of Venom, Warhulk, Templars, EOV, and Axegrinders made it to the third round (for some reason, Venom seems to be the patron saint of successful hodge-podge armies). Others have gone further in past tournaments.

Anyway, once I finish one tournament, I typically make a list of units based on how far they got in that tournament—units that made it to the finals make the top of the list and units that didn’t make it past the first round go to the bottom of the list. I then proceed to build armies around the losingest units so that they get their best chance to shine. Below are the match-ups for the first round of the tournament I imagine I’ll conduct in January. An * designates my predictions for first round winners. If you’d like to make your own predictions, please do. Keep in mind that I make my predictions before I know what map they’ll be playing on.

There are some really interesting matchups in there, and some funny ones, too. Poor elf wizards, drawing the Hulk in the first round...

The armies that stand out to me as favorites are:

DrakeV2/Sentinels/Mass
Q10/Venom/MW/KMS/ratsx3
Eltahale, Airborne Elite, Sir Gilbert, KoWx3, Eldgrim

All three of those will be really hard to beat unless a few things go wrong for them.

There's a couple others, like Q9/G-Natorsx2/Zombiesx4 and Braxas/Krav/PKx2/MDx3, that could be nasty in the right matchup.

I pretty much agree with your picks. If I've gotta pick an upset I'll take the 'trons+Frosty+Wyvern to take out the Dwarves+Murphy+EOV+Sonlen.
