While you might think some of the Thursday match-ups aren't going to be that exciting--and you may be correct--I don't see how you can skip any of them without risking missing out. Oh sure, there's work or school to consider but seriously, are you going to let those get in your way when all you need is a hot spot and one of ten thousand gadgets that will get you online where you can catch all the action and a legitimately unique event in Dallas as the pro bracket transitions into Champions & Challengers. Not to mention all the new faces. Does Impact come back with a vengeance after a disappointing Cup? Do the TonTons make an immediate impact? Is Vicious gonna be a player early in the season? Thursday will provide the answer with match-ups versus Damage and Impact. And what has the off season really changed? Will CEP or Shock come in looking to shock the world--and capable of doing it? You might say no but can you really afford to take that chance?
The day begins with X-Factor and XSV. X-Factor had a strong second half last season finishing third at Cup and XSV came into Cup and went 2-2 knocking off Damage in the process. Wait, did I forget to mention we's playing on the old sized field too? Trust me, it's gonna make a difference. The question is, who will it favor?
Check out that lunchtime line-up of Heat versus Dynasty. Is Heat ready to defend their title? Is Dynasty gonna make a big run this year? This game is round 1 in what could be a season long battle. Followed by Legion versus Impact. Boom! This could easily be a Sunday preview match.
Cut class, call in sick, do what you gotta do, this is an event not to be missed.
