Omfg group D of death, closely followed by group C. Group A looks like a walk in the park though.. Lets see those two orc power houses qualify and of course chinese undeads as well!

This is all pretty cool, but without replays.. Whatever .. As if nothing took place. Looks competitive though . Hope a European wins it all in the end.

Very poorly designed groups. TH000 should be swapped from Group C to Group A and replace Tara or one of the other UD's as his group is too strong and has no UD's while group A has 3. Another ideal scenario would be to have Infi from Group D to replace one of the NE's from Group B besides Xixi... Fly wfz and Infi in one group is just ...

Here is a 'big' replay pack which contains 'most' replays of Zodiac Cup #12 - April Masters, which were saved on the hostbots we used. Several games of the later stage of the tournament were not played on our hostbots, therefore we have no access to the replays. The replay pack also includes the show matches (Hawk vs. Lucifer , HawK vs. ReprisaL), which took place after the tournament was already over. -->

Comment #13Thu Apr 16, 2015 21:09 pm
Stupid set up. Ruins the quality of the tour
Comment #14Thu Apr 16, 2015 23:46 pm
