(+2) Hazers- Despite getting 2nd place, I ranked this team number 1, because besides there rocky start in the Finals. They did not have one disappointing performance, during the whole event. Good Job, Hazers.
(+2) Oceanics- I expected nothing less from this team. After 2 years of ups and downs, this team finally has their chance at a final spot on the podium.
(+9) Savage Speeders- This team surprised me the most this event. Last event, Anton and I both predicted that the Savage Speeders would not perform well in the Ice Dash. I don’t know about Anton but as for me, I stand corrected.
(+2) Snowballs- Good Job to the Snowballs. They did really well this event. There is not much to say about this team that needs to be said. It seems that the home field advantage is truly an advantage.
(-3) Pinkies- I would have to congratulate them on their semi final appearance. But I expected them to make it to the finals. I just don’t know if the Pinkies are ready for the challenge of the podium
(+3) Balls of Chaos- They came really close to going to the Finals, but the Savage Speeders and Snowballs were just too good. I am confident, however, that they will do well in the remaining 11 events.
(-6) Team Galactic- Here is the problem I have with Team Galactic. They looked really good coming into this year, but they lack the drive to accomplish anything of significance. They started out doing really well in the Ice Dash, but they relaxed towards the end allowing the Pinkies to come from behind and get 2nd.
(+3) O’rangers- They went off the track BOTH TIMES. It was very funny to watch. They performed really well in the Ice Dash, but just didn’t have what it takes to make the top 4, something reflected in their power rankings.
(+6) Midnight Wisps- I was shocked when the Midnight Wisps made the Semi Finals, but their performance in the semi finals was what I would expect from them. Bad.
(-5) Mellow Yellow- I was honestly hoping for a better performance from them. I have lost my confidence in their ability to perform. Very big drop in their rankings this week.
(-1) Limers- Not impressed with their performance, but they do not give up, so maybe they will win one.
(-4) Team Momo- I was optimistic about their odds this year, ranking them 8th. But the more that I see them play, the more pessimistic about their odds I become.
(+6) Thunderbolts- They had a good start but they lost their momentum. Not a good omen for their future appearances in the 11 remaining events
(+2) Crazy Cat’s Eyes- One of the three new teams that qualified, but can’t do much else.
(-2) Minty Maniac- Not much to say here. They just sucked. They had the slowest time in the Ice Dash this year. Good job to them for qualifying, but they don’t have much of a chance this year.
(-2) Raspberry Racers- HEY!!! They didn’t get last. HUGE MOMENT for the Raspberry Racers. If they are lucky, then they might not get last every time.
