FIFA 15 PC Gameplay – Chelsea vs Manchester United

At Gamescom 2014, EA announced that more than 50 Legends will be available for Xbox in FIFA Ultimate Team. You can now loan players and build concept squads. Brand new Friendly Seasons have been added so you can now play Ultimate Team against your friends. New base attribute has been added, PHY, which stands for Physical.

the away fans actually sound realistic in this game, why couldn’t fifa16 or why cant fifa 17 have a realistic crowd. for example in real life when the away team scores the away fans don’t celebrate till the net ripples, but in the game the away fans celebrate as soon as the ball crosses the line.

 

fifa commentary is stupid. theyd be droning on and on endlessly, clueless of the match theyre meant to be watching. when a goal goes in, they suddenly switch to the game exclaiming how good the goal was, AS IF THEY ACTUALLY SAW IT, and werent going on about david moyes or some of the other they talk about on this game.

I do have an odd issue. I must say that I haven’t purchased the full game yet and still playing demo because of it. So, idk if it can also be confronted in full game either. Here it is.

I do have a pretty low level/cheap gamepad which can not be recognized by the game. To make it run through the game, i am using a third party app called as x360ce. Using the produced config by that app. The problem is that when i plug in the gamepad and step into a match ‘apart from the BarclaysPL game done between Liverpool vs Man. City(opening game), the ball physics get broken. Only and only in that match, its realistic as well as what FIFA 15 game offers. But, when i choose a team and start any match, the ball physics go wrong and look like a balloon bouncing all over the pitch. I do not know how to fix this. What i confirmed is, as i unplug the gamepad and play with keyboard/mouse config. given inside the game, the ball physics are always the one it has to be. Though, that way, i can not enjoy the game.

Mario Balotelli makes most prolific Ligue 1 start since Zlatan Ibrahimovic – fifa15books.com

Alison Bender takes a look at Mario Balotelli’s start to life in Ligue 1, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic struggles in England.
Nice have extended their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table after easing to a 4-1 win over Nantes.
Nice have now opened a six-point gap between themselves and second place Monaco, FC’s Gab Marcotti dives into their form.

Nice striker Mario Balotelli has scored six goals in five Ligue 1 games, with only Zlatan Ibrahimovic making a more prolific start to his Ligue 1 career.

Ibrahimovic, 35, scored seven goals in his opening five Ligue 1 matches after joining Paris Saint-Germain from AC Milan in 2012.

Balotelli, 26, found the net in his team’s 4-1 win over Nantes on Sunday to move onto six for the season, meaning his has scored in all but one of his appearances since his summer transfer from Liverpool.

Radamel Falcao scored four in his first five league games after he joined Monaco in 2013 while Edinson Cavani, who left Napoli for PSG at the same time, struck only twice in his first five league matches in France.

Mario Balotelli bows to fans after scoring against Nantes.

Despite his sensational start to life at Nice, Balotelli still has room for improvement, according to his new boss, Lucien Favre.

“He made a great run for his goal. He’s very good in those sorts of situations,” Favre, who has used the Italy international sparingly, said on the club’s official website. “He had had a week of complete rest and then a normal week.

“I have said it again and again: there is still a lot of work to do. Today, he did more tracking back than he had done previously. It’s positive.”

fifa15books – Bastian Schweinsteiger, Henrikh Mkhitaryan in Man United training

Manchester United’s miserable form continued after they were thwarted by an inspired Tom Heaton for Burnley.
Manchester United’s miserable form continued after they were thwarted by an inspired Tom Heaton for Burnley.
Man United have had a torrid stretch of results in league play, the FC crew look at some possible solutions.
ESPN FC’s Shaka Hislop chalks up Man United’s scoreless draw with Burnley as a game where it ‘wasn’t meant to be’.

Manchester United released pictures showing Bastian Schweinsteiger and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in first-team training on Monday.

Schweinsteiger, signed by Louis van Gaal in 2015, had not been training with the first team following Jose Mourinho’s arrival in the summer and the Daily Mail’s website published a story on Sunday evening saying Mkhitaryan had “worked out alone.”

However, United published a picture on Monday showing the pair in training alongside midfielder Marouane Fellaini and assistant manager Rui Faria.

Luke Shaw said he was delighted to have Schweinsteiger back on the training pitch. 

“It’s great to see him back,” the United left-back said. “We found out the news a couple of days ago and it’s so great to have him back.

“He’s a big influence in the dressing room and obviously on the pitch, especially for the young players like myself.

“It’s a great boost for us, the experience and the quality that he brings. The quality he possesses is a boost for our team and I’m so glad to have him back.”

Schweinsteiger said in August that he “will be ready if the team needs me” but United subsequently wrote the former Germany international off as an asset in the club’s accounts.

The 32-year-old was included in United’s 25-man squad for the Premier League but not for the Europa League, which means he would not be eligible to play in European competition until registration reopens for the knockout phase.

His return to training comes after Ander Herrera — who has been playing in a deeper midfield role — was sent off in Saturday’s 0-0 home draw against Burnley.

Schweinsteiger has not shown any sign of dissent throughout his exile, posting positive messages on his social media accounts. On Wednesday, he posted a picture of himself at Old Trafford, wishing the team “good luck” for the Manchester derby, which United went on to win 1-0.

The 2014 World Cup winner had said earlier in the season that United would be the last club he plays for in Europe. He has two years left on his United contract after joining from Bayern Munich.

What to Do at Level 110 in Legion: Artifacts, Gearing Up, Suramar, World Quests and More! – fifa15books.com

Grats! You’re now level 110 with all dungeons unlocked, an awesome artifact, and a quest to go to Suramar. Now what?

We’ve put together a list of some of the most popular things you can do at max level, ranging from gearing up to questing through Suramar. In a future post, we’ll be highlighting some of the fun things you’ll find if you slow down and explore along the way. Please check out our Legion Survival Guide for a complete list of Legion guides and content topics.

Artifacts

Artifact Knowledge

Make sure to aways have Artifact Knowledge Work Orders going on, which will increase the amount of power you get from items which grant Artifact Power. Placing a Work Order for Artifact Research Notes requires 0 Order Resources. More details about Artifact Knowledge can be found here.

If you’re very close to finishing an Artifact Knowledge Work Order, consider waiting to turn in Suramar quests that reward a lot of power such as Delving Deeper by Arcanist Perclanea. Every rank counts; Rank 1 provides a 25% gain and Rank 2 provides a 50% gain.

Artifact Power

If you are going out of your way to look for Artifact Power, for example if you are preparing for raiding and want to work towards a second golden trait as soon as possible, then work towards Suramar Quests and targeted World Quests with Artifact Power.

If you want to gear up offpsec artifacts, there is a huge jump in trait costs from Rank 13 to Rank 14 (1000 to 6840). So if you are hopping between specs, keep in mind that it is easy to reach one golden trait.

Not sure what to spend your Artifact Power on? Wowhead Spec Guides detail recommended artifact build paths.

Want a break from regular artifacts? Try out Legion Fishing for the Underlight Angler Artifact Fishing Pole instead!

Third Relic Slot

The Class Hall Campaign Quest has a strong lore component, but it also unlocks your Third Relic Slot at the end. Relics let you upgrade the ilvl of your Artifact even further and modify another trait. As you complete this long quest, you will send Champions on several long missions, run dungeons, finish 30 World Quests, and recruit 8 champions to your Class Hall.

As the quest series generally requires 5x 8 hour and 5x 12 hour missions (Warriors have even longer ones), as well as several dungeons and/or profession requirements, this is something that cannot be powered through in one day; so start it early.

Summaries of each campaign can be found in the Class Hall Campaign Guide and a detailed breakdown of the Rogue Campaign is provided as an example in the Missions Guide.

While completing this long questline, you will also get two Class Hall Set pieces (Chest and Wrist), a new artifact appearance and tint, and a special class title. All of the rewards are in the Class Hall Campaign Guide.

Appearances

At max level, you can progress towards more of your artifact appearances. The following achievements unlock a tint or appearance:

  • This Side Up
  • Forged for Battle
  • Glory of the Legion Hero
  • Unleashed Monstrosities

Other achievements require a lengthier time investment or content that has not fully unlocked yet. You can also work towards your Hidden Artifact Appearance but some appearances are very obscure.

Gearing Up

World Quests/Dungeons

Before raids open, there are two primary ways to get gear without spending gold: solo World Quests and group Dungeons.

World Quests are a good way to improve your reputation and get basic gear without needing a group or long time commitment. Just open your map, or check it via your phone on the Legion Companion App or on Wowhead’s World Quest Page, to see which quests are up. The better your ilvl is, the higher ilvl rewards you have a chance of getting. You can get gear for any slot as well as relics.

Dungeons drop ilvl 805 loot on Normal, 825 on Heroic, and 840 on Mythic. There are 10 dungeons for max-level players; two require special attunements. We have complete Dungeon Strategy Guides to all encounters, trash, and Dungeon World Quests.

If an item appears up to 10 ilvls above the base, it will be marked as Warforged in the tooltip. If an item procs +15 or higher, it wll be marked as Titanforged. For example, If you love solo questing, there’s a small chance your rewards from World Quests can proc Titanforged and be the same level as loot from a Mythic Dungeon.

Less gear in Legion is spec/role specific. Most primary stats change based on your specialization and new to Legion, rings and necks have no primary stats, only stamina and secondary stats. This makes them desirable for everyone.

More details and other ways to gear up in the Early Legion Gearing Guide and specific gear tips for each spec in the Legion Spec Guides.

Suramar Dungeon Attunements

As mentioned above, two dungeons require attunements:

8000/12000 Honored is needed to start the questline to unlock The Arcway and Court of Stars. These are Mythic-only dungeons which drop ilvl 840 loot and a chance at itemsets with additional equip effects.

  • Reach 8000/12000 Honored with the The Nightfallen reputation
  • Complete the Nightfallen But Not Forgotten achievement as well as The Waning Crescent and Blood and Wine stages of the Good Suramaritan achievement
  • Obtain and complete the Statecraft storyline, requiring two separate bribes of 0 Ancient Mana and 0 Ancient Mana to Arluin
  • Complete the Friends With Benefits quest

The special itemsets are: Fortitude of the Nightborne, Traitor’s Oath, Jacin’s Ruse, Nightwell Arcanum, Journey Through Time, March of the Legion

Order Advancement

Make sure to continue farming up Order Resources and watching your remaining research time on the Order Advancement Tech Tree. You will need to do 43 consecutive days of Order Advancement research to hit Tier 6, which allows you to equip one more legendary. Each tier costs progressively more Order Resources to learn or swap.

Besides working towards the legendary perk, there are other benefits in the Order Advancement system:

  • The first tier is a choice between increasing success chance of the first mission per day, or increasing the chance that leveling quest rewards have rare or epic upgrades.
  • The second tier is a choice between an ability which either enhances your missions or troops, or a creative class-specific perk that unlocks toys, pets, hidden artifact achievements etc!
  • The third tier increases the amount of troops you can recruit, or allows you to acquire Champion equipment via Work Orders or Missions.
  • The fourth tier lets you choose between ways in which your troops can become stronger: roughly 5% base success or 15% success in certain conditions.
  • The fifth tier has some variation between classes. It includes access to special third troops, instant completion of a World Quest every 3 days, Order Resources per world quests competed with a Combat Ally, or a Work Order for a Seal of Broken Fate.
  • The sixth tier increases the number of legendary items which can be equipped.

Choosing your Order Advancements is another task that can be done via the Legion Companion App. More details on what each skill does and the costs in the Order Advancement Tech Tree Guide.

Questing

At max level, players can continue questing via Suramar and World Quests, or go back to other zones to finish up Loremaster for Broken Isles Pathfinder.

Suramar

Suramar is a sprawling, tragic, exploratory zone; the Nightborne have entered into a no-win pact with Gul’dan to ensure the survival of the city, while the rebels have been expelled and wither before our eyes.

  • First, you will want to unlock the quartermaster through the initial "Nightfall" questchain in Nightfallen But Not Forgotten and then hit Friendly to unlock World Quests. Hitting Friendly simply requires a few more questchains in Nightfallen But Not Forgotten; Chief Telemancer Oculeth and Arcanist Kel’danath.
  • At 8000/12000 Honored, you’ll unlock the quest chain to become attuned to Arcway and Court of Stars.
  • At higher reputation levels, more parts of the story unlock as well as specific World Quests, which are all detailed on the Good Suramaritan page.
  • Revered is required for Broken Isles Diplomat
  • Several parts of the Class Hall Set require Suramar Reputation: Gloves, Shoulders, and the Greater Armor Kit.

The Comprehensive Suramar Guide covers everything you need to about the important parts of Suramar, including acquiring and spending Ancient Mana, unlocking the teleportation network, and Withered Army Training.

World Quests

In addition to gearing up, World Quests help with a number of topics in Legion:

  • Reputation Gains: All quests in a specific zone provide reputation with a faction. If you are interested in profession recipes, vanity items, or Broken Isles Diplomat, you will want to complete World Quests. All zones except for Suramar only take you to Honored via story questing. For Suramar, different parts of the storyline unlock at higher reputation levels and you won’t be able to hit those levels without World/Emissary quests.
    World Quests are very important for The Wardens and Nightfallen; they are both Level 110 only factions.

Professions: Quests have a chance to reward Blood of Sargeras, and when you hit skill level 100, additional profession quests unlock which can reward recipes or high-end reagents like Thick Slab of Bacon.
Other quests reward Artifact Power, Gold, and Order Resources.
PvP quests reward Honor and a chance at PvP gear; Battle Pet quests reward bandages/stones.

World Quests do not reset on a daily basis; they also do not immediately respawn when you have finished one. This should help with pacing and other problems surrounding Mists of Pandaria dailies. However, use common-sense when choosing which quests to complete:

  • Completing the quests related to the active 3 Emissaries gives you the biggest reward for time spent; 1500 reputation and a cache which can even contain Legendaries.
  • Nightfallen dailies, as discussed above, are a great way to supplement reputation gains from story quests.
  • Complete quests for gear that will be a clear upgrade.
  • Wardens do not have any story quests associated with them; you will need to do World Quests primarily to gain reputation.
  • Prioritize Artifact Power or Order Resource quests if you either need to progress on your Artifact or Order Advancement.

See which World Quests are up on our World Quest Tracker.

Withered Army

Since Nightfallen story quests reward small amounts of reputation, you will definitely want to complete World Quests, as well as the Emissary Quests The Nightfallen and The Kirin Tor of Dalaran. A notable Nightfallen World Quest is Withered Army Training.

  • To unlock this quest, you must have completed the main Suramar questline up to Building an Army and have 400 Ancient Mana on hand.
  • In this scenario, you earn a score based on the number of mobs you kill in the instance. Based on your score, you will get more Arcane Tablet of Falanaar reputation items from the final chest.
  • There are many tips and tricks to maximizing your potential, such as starting with a larger Withered Army for more Ancient Mana, and looting small chests along the way for items like Traveler’s Banking Chest and Ancient Mana Basin. Please check out varenne’s comment and video and voxxel’s guide for more details.

Broken Isles Pathfinder

Flying isn’t coming to Legion quite yet, but there is an achievement for the first step: Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One. One of the components is Loremaster of Legion, which requires completion of all the major storylines in Legion. So if you skipped a zone while leveling, you can go back and finish the main quests (Good Suramaritan) will take a while longer).

Battle.net profiles are inconsistently updating for players; when Battle.net is stable, you can import your characters to the Wowhead Flying Tool to check their exact progress and track quests.

Professions: Obliterum Forge

At level 110, you can complete the Trial By Fel Fire quest series to unlock the Obliterum Forge. This will allow you to destroy crafted items (even non-armor like flasks) in return for Obliterum Ash. The resulting Obliterum can then be combined with 2 Blood of Sargeras to increase the ilvl of a crafted piece of gear by +5, up to ilvl 850.

This is a lengthy questline that requires you to turn in 4x ilvl 815 crafted bracers, which is expensive at this point in time.

While Mythic Dungeons drop higher ilvl loot in general, crafted gear provides a guaranteed way to get an ilvl 850 item; it will be expensive but you’ll get there with enough materials.

Learn more about Professions in our Legion Professions Overview; we also have guides to all the Profession Questlines.

Raiding: Emerald Nightmare

Normal and Heroic Emerald Nightmare open on September 20th, with Mythic following a week later. Our Emerald Nightmare Overview is up along with all boss strategy guides so you can familiarize yourself with the fights in advance.

In addition to knowing the boss abilities and strategies, you can get your gear and consumables in a good place. We have gear and artifact path recommendations for each spec for early Legion, as well as recommended consumables.

Stockpiling flasks, potions, enchanting materials, herbs, gems, and ore in advance can ensure you have a steady supply of materials as you get new gear upgrades quickly. The Legion Profession Guides have more information on what quests to do to learn recipes or gathering ranks.

Seal of Broken Fate is the new bonus roll and Archmage Lan’dalock offers quests to earn them. Several classes have an Order Advancement Option to access a Work Order in return for a Seal, but as that is Rank 5, it will take some time to unlock.

PvP: Farm Honor

Legion Season 1 starts on September 20th. You can increase your Honor currently in Legion, which progressively unlocks Honor Talents. An easy way to increase Honor is to complete the PvP "Warden Tower" World Quests. These reward Vindictive Combatant PvP items or Soldier’s Splendor as well as Honor. You can see which are up easily by going to Wowhead’s World Quest page and filtering for the PvP quests.

Learn more in the Honor Talents and Prestige Rewards guides.

England drop Wayne Rooney to bench for World Cup qualifier in Slovenia on fifa15books

ESPN FC’s Craig Burley says Wayne Rooney’s current form and style of play slow down the youngsters in the England squad.
Wayne Rooney trained this morning with the rest of the squad following reports he may be benched against Slovenia.

England captain Wayne Rooney will be left out of the starting lineup for Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Slovenia, caretaker manager Gareth Southgate has confirmed.

Rooney, who was deployed in midfield on Saturday against Malta, was booed by sections of the Wembley crowd during England’s 2-0 win.

Tottenham’s Eric Dier will start in place of the national team’s all-time top scorer for Tuesday’s Group F qualifier, Southgate revealed at the prematch news conference in Ljubljana.

“It’s very straightforward. We’ve looked at Slovenia and the way they play and from when I looked at it I’ve had in my mind the profile of the midfield that we wanted to play.

“In no way is it a reflection on his performance on Saturday. In fact we were very pleased with what he did.”

Jordan Henderson will captain England in Rooney’s absence on Tuesday, but Southgate said Rooney will continue to lead the side for the foreseeable future.

“He’s still captain of this team while I’m in charge,” said Southgate, who is preparing for the second of his initial four-game stint as England boss.

“Everything I have seen this week has only improved the feeling of how impressive he has been as a leader of this group.”

Wayne Rooney
Wayne Rooney will not start for England against Slovenia on Tuesday.

Rooney said he was unaware of the jeers from his country’s own fans against Malta but vowed to continue to give his all for England.

He said: “To be honest I wasn’t aware of it. I think football nowadays, that’s part of the game, but I wasn’t aware of it on the pitch. I’ve nothing really to say on it.”

On Southgate’s decision to drop him against Slovenia, he added: “Of course you want to play.

“I understand and I respect the manager’s decision and I’ll support the players 100 per cent, and try to help the players get three points tomorrow.

“I’ll be ready to come off the bench if needed.

“I show great pride in playing for my country, whether that’s from the start or from the bench.

“Of course you want to be on the pitch, but my role as captain won’t change off the pitch.”

Griezmann will still take penalties – Simeone on fifa15books

The France international saw a late effort crash against the bar, but his coach pointed out that even the best players in the world sometime err from the spot

Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann will continue taking penalties despite his latest miss, coach Diego Simeone said.

Griezmann put his 84th-minute spot-kick against the crossbar, but Atletico still claimed a 1-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.

A first-half goal by Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, set up by Griezmann, was enough for the LaLiga giants.

Atletico down Bayern in Champions League clash

Atletico have taken three penalties in their last four Champions League games, failing to score any of them – with two missed by Griezmann.

"[Diego] Maradona, [Lionel] Messi, [Michel] Platini and Zico have all missed penalties. Griezmann will carry on taking them," Simeone said, via UEFA.

"We are very happy with his work. He started the counter-attack for the goal and he did a thousand things.

"For me, he is in amongst the best forwards in the world."

Carrasco's pinpoint finish in the 35th minute proved the match-winner for Simeone's side.

The Argentinian was also full of praise for midfielder Koke, saying: "We have been working with Koke for the last two years, moving him more inside.

"He is looking more natural there and seems to be the boss in there. It works well and he enables the team recover the ball much more quickly."

De Boer pleased with Inter progress on fifa15books

The Nerazzurri have managed to put together a two-game winning streak since their shock Europa League defeat against Hapoel Be’er Sheva under the Dutchman’s guidance

Frank de Boer has put down Inter's strong response to their shock Europa League defeat against Hapoel Be'er Sheva to his players getting a better grip of his philosophy.

In the six days since the 2-0 reverse to the Israeli champions at San Siro, the Milan club have beaten Serie A champions Juventus and won comfortably at Empoli on Wednesday.

Speaking after the latter victory, De Boer – who took over the Inter reins in the summer – explained that his charges are starting to adapt to his methods better.

"What has changed from the Europa League match? My players," he said in quotes reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I've been coaching this group for only a month, and players are assimilating my methods and are beginning to understand what I want from them.

"Ours is a project that cannot be implemented within days and requires a lot of energy. Over time, you will see it bear fruits."

"It was a good match [against Empoli," he added. "After the two goals, we did well to control it, despite a small decline in the second half.

"That was only natural after spending so much energy against Juventus [on Sunday].

"The attitude, however, was the right one and I am glad to see that the boys have the same philosophy as the coach. This is important."

fifa15books – Luis Enrique defiant after Messi injury

The Blaugrana boss put on a brave face after learning his star would miss roughly three weeks of action, while admitting his absence would be a heavy blow

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique believes his team will remain "strong" despite losing Lionel Messi to injury.

Messi came off during the second half of Barca's 1-1 LaLiga draw with Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou on Wednesday.

The Argentina star is set to miss three weeks with a groin strain, the club later announced.

Luis Enrique remains upbeat over the ability of his team, even without one of their attacking maestros.

"To lose Messi means that football loses," he said, via the club's Twitter.


READ MORE | Messi subbed off with injury against Atletico


"With Messi we are stronger, but we will continue being strong."

Ivan Rakitic gave Barca the lead four minutes before half-time against Atletico, but Angel Correa levelled for the visitors just past the hour-mark.

Luis Enrique felt his team were worthy of a victory, saying: "These types of games are decided by small details, and we deserved more."

Barca sit third in the table, three points behind leaders Real Madrid – who were earlier held to a draw by Villarreal.

Chelsea are playing boring football – former defender Franck Leboeuf – fifa15books.com

Former Arsenal striker Paul Mariner talks what Chelsea can do to light a spark in their attack.
Antonio Conte says he must show that Chelsea is a great team, and can’t make the same mistakes as last season.

Former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf has urged manager Antonio Conte to rethink his tactics, claiming the Blues are producing “boring” football.

Chelsea began the season with a hat trick of wins but have since drawn at Swansea and were beaten at home by Liverpool on Friday.

Leboeuf, who won two FA Cups and the 1998 European Cup Winners’ Cup during five years at Stamford Bridge, said: “You get bored because it’s always the same style of play.

“There is no acceleration, no surprise. Say what you like about Diego Costa, but the boy works. He’s the one who scored [against Liverpool], and he created a second chance. The others didn’t exist.”

Leboeuf suggested Conte should alter the trio of attacking players he employs behind Costa in a bid to reinvigorate Chelsea’s football.

“I think one of the three players can stay, but there has to be another formula so that this team can live, show something else,” he said.

Teams to look out for

Luminosity

This Nordic core mixed team narrowly missed qualifying for the Atlantic Showdown. They did not let a second chance slip through their fingers and not only qualified for the OW Open regionals but dominated their group. They also managed to get out of their group at the Lenovo Cup. This team is on the cusp of truly being elite, definitely a name to watch out for.

Team LDLC

Formerly Le Mixx, this European squad features players from Sweden, Germany, France and Romania. Regulars in our weeklies, their consistent performances have seen them rise to be ranked 12th in Europe. These relative new-comers will try to cement their place among Europe’s best today.

Tornado Rox

Born from the ashes of Prets, this mainly Russian team has a lot to prove. They went out in disappointing fashion in the group stage of the OW Open regional and had a rough group stage exit at the Lenovo cup. Look for them to step it up today and prove they belong with the best of Europe.

Sydioda

Relatively unknown despite a lengthy history of consistent placings, this French team is yet another up-and-comer looking to prove themselves today. While they have yet to qualify for a major tournament, they’ve been very close several times. Regulars among the top 16, look for them to go deep with a few of the regular top teams taking a week off.
