Frontline Tactics is a new team in the scene however their players are by no means unknown. FT started out as a 5v5 team for the EC5 where they respectfully achieved 2nd place. They wanted to continue as an 8v8 clan which lead them to recruiting a few players so they could sign-up for the WSC. With their captain Charlini having proven a lot recently, both as commander and as player, this team certainly as a potential to run for the title.
FT is a team that any of their opponents should take as seriously as possible and for a good reason. Looking at their roster they have some of the strongest players in the scene. Their cavalry department consists out of no one less than one of the most dangerous players in that category, Peter. He is backed up by rising talents such as SirAlecks and Dume who are surely no less feared. To top it all off they have Firunien who has proven to be quite an accomplished cavalryman.
Their infantries also consist out of well-known players such as Oliveran and Eder. They are backed up by Charlini and Fietta, two players who have recently proven that they were capable to compete with the very best teams. Their line-up is completed by excellent rangers such as Rainbow and Rayden, who are two of the best archers in the scene, and Sparta, who despite being less-skilled than his comrades can certainly provide excellent firing support and potentially even make a difference if he is in form.
FT has to face off against PE in the first quarterfinal, although PE is a dangerous team to play, FT should feel somewhat comfortable fighting against them with their current line-up. If they play as a team and show the same synergy we’ve seen from their match against Aequalitas, then Polish Eagles might have a hard-time going against them.
Polish Eagles have always been a very solid team, and with a roster stacked with excelent players, it is no surprise but to see them reaching the quarter-finals.
Polish Eagles, who doesn't know that name? A team that always proves to hold true to their reputation and this time they have done it again. Being placed in group A with AE, Sacrosanct, CCC and BB, PE was expected to do well but it was unclear who would come on top of their confrontation against Sacrosanct. After a very exciting match, PE emerged victorious, claiming the second place of their group and looking to take the first place, would they come to upset Apis Europae. Unfortunately for them, they looked extremely short in their final match against Deacon and his team and they had to satisfy themselves with a second-place finish.
Frontline Tactics may have some of the best players in the scene, but so does PE. With infantry players such as Blackhawk, Warhammer, Horace, Zoyka, Sebek and Napoleon, they can most definitely challenge FT's infantry squad and they’re backed up by Cramer, Pon, lovca and Pendragon. Their cavalry department consists out of Woj, Marek and ColonelKurtz who seem to be in most of their recurrent line-up with BabyEagle_Z and Blue as potential back-ups. But Polish Eagle strongest point certainly is their archer duo, Prince and Matafiks, who have proven to be extremely deadly when given the necessary space to express themselves.
After their disappointing performance against AE, PE has yet another really hard match ahead of them. Can their infantries hold out against the squad of FT? Can their cavalry compete with one of the best cav line-up in the tournament? Will their archers be enough? If PE's teamplay is as solid as it ever was, then this match could certainly be down to the wire.
