    Lots of newcomers with the new system, so any group has the potential to end up tougher than it looks now. But with that being said, there's already some packed groups. Which group is your Group of Death?

    I think I am going with Group H, tough users with good teams along with being a 5 team group.

    lotta unknowns sure makes it tough this year, so I had to go with the group I know the most about and is still pretty damn tough- Group G. guayo10, BESHIKTAS, and MiaFLSurf are all Serie A-caliber players.

    Of the groups that got 2 Serie A teams tho, I thought Zikry and Friz in the same group was tough. So Group H will certainly be a tough one too.

    Here's a quick mini-preview of 10 words of less for each group. I keed will be a little more than 10 words. Could do a more detailed one if time permits, but might be saving that for next season as many on here have no prior history on TFS. Also many of us missed Season 13 and 12 and part of 11. Ha.

    Group A
    Favourites: HokieNYC RedAL925
    Why? Serie A, that and don't know much info about the others. Pretty sure they're all newcomers.
    Upset City: KnightNoles BigBeansMcGee
    Why? Played both, plus pulling for Beans as a former 3 star and below user.
    No Chance: Lions67
    Why? Had to place a team here, never played him.

    Group B
    Favourites: Broncos218 Blaza
    Why? Broncos Serie A, played Blaza before. His pressure will suffocate teams, literally.
    Upset City: UcanHateMeNow
    Why? Played him on the PS3, will steal points.
    No Chance: Akshat Singhal
    See above, same thing with Lions.

    Group C
    Favourites: redwings8831 rschwep
    Why? Serie A
    Upset City: Frenchie1916
    Why? I don't know the other guy + more
    No Chance: Caleb Clark
    Why? Sunderland, ha. Toon Army.

    Group D
    Favourites: CxMacx10 Kevin Gomez
    Why? Mac is good, KG has a non 4 star team. Vamos!
    Upset City: krtgolfing
    Why? Like Ucanhateme he could steal points.
    No Chance: abolishthefed
    Why? Never played him, only played with him clubs.

    Group E
    Favourites: shiftee IJGator
    Why? Serie A
    Upset City & No Chance: Lou & pitt4life21
    Why? Both face huge odds to advance imo.

    Group F
    Favourites: vipermansa hedache
    Why? Serie A and played both of them before
    Upset City: hokie79
    Why? I think I've played him before
    No Chance: PhiGuy179
    Why? Needed someone to take this role

    Group G
    Favourites: Guayo10 MiaFLSurf
    Why? There has to be a group where a Serie A member fails to advance.
    Upset City: BESHIKTAS
    Why? Not really an upset as he's a Serie A member that has been done wrong.
    No Chance: CTfromDC
    Why? Needed someone

    Group H
    Favourites: Zikry Friz
    Why? Serie A
    Upset City: MoonBBad
    Why? Lone B member, plus played clubs with him
    No Chance: Calhockey10 John O'Connor
    Why? Never played either

    With that said, for me Group E is easy access to both Serie A teams imo. Groups A & G are the toughest in my eyes. In Group A I see 4 teams capable of advancing, not sure how Lions67 plays but it could be all 5 teams capable of going through. In Group G I see 3 teams capable of winning the group. All 3 could win the tourney with some lucky breaks as well imo, so a potential champion could be left out. In the unofficial PS4 season Guayo won S1 and MiaFLSurf won S2. Group H, while having 5 teams, isn't as strong (the top 2 might be stronger but A is more competitive balanced 1-5) as A imo. I have absolutely no clue how 4 of the 5 in H play as I've only played Zikry. Calling it a tie with A & G, but ultimately going with G due to the potential damage a 3rd place team could do in the Confederazione. Also would like the honor of being on back to back to back Groups of Death in my 3 seasons here haha. Again most of it is unknown since there are a lot of new members.

    Fun fact, 3 of the 4 teams in G made the Round of 16 in their last Coppa appearance. Two of them lost to Shiftee, albeit one was via forfeit.

    BESHIKTAS: S13 Round of 16 loss vs. shiftee
    Guayo10: S11 Quartefinals loss vs. WingedHelmet (forfeited due to dropping out), last full one: S10 Semifinal loss vs. WingedHelmet
    MiaFLSurf: S12 Semifinal loss vs. shiftee (forfeited due to dropping out), last full one: S11 3rd place in group stage

    Ha yeah most of the No chance guys are people I've never played or have less time on TFS than I do haha. With all the new members I'm shooting to get at least 45% of the above correct ha. Remember that you can use semi for those options that give you manual - semi - assisted as options.
