Build: 189cm, 80kg
Player Skills: P21
Playing Style: Offensive Goalkeeper
On their way to a Third Place Trophy, /vp/ would pick up two victories in benuldies -- better known as classic PES coin-flipping at its finest, and a point of argument for critics eager to dismiss /vp/'s run as a fluke. In retrospect, however -- /jp/ and /sp/ never really had a chance. At least, not when /vp/ had a true master of the coinflip on their side: Smogonsword! Though he started out as a midfielder and then a centerback for the team, management soon realized that his 150 / 150 mixed offenses didn't flourish well in those positions, and so eventually Smogonsword would change to Shield Forme and become the reliable alternative whenever main goalkeeper Gotta Catch 'Em All felt under the weather. One of the last lines of defense in /vp/'s deep defensive lines this Winter, Smogonsword would go on to rack up nine saves of his own -- along with Gotta Catch 'Em All's seventeen, the duo's defense would add up to the most saves per team this Cup in support of a spot on the podium. As the living embodiment of "skillful" play himself, we can be sure /vp/ will stay in the Cup's Ubers tier as long as his mighty King's Shield guards the net.

Or who knows? Personally, I'd say the odds are fifty-fifty.

POTW PFoL.jpg Purest Form of Love U icon.png /u/
Build: 189cm, 80kg
Player Skills: P05, P08, P12 , P16, P24
Playing Style: Hole Player
The purest form of love may very well be that of two girls holding hands as each stares passionately into the other's eyes -- but if /u/'s namesake player is any indication, a divegrass player with the ball at their foot is a goddamn close second. The linchpin of /u/'s rejuvenated, out-for-blood offense, Purest Form of Love not only outscored /u/ stalwart and center forward Homucifer, but also achieved such in a streak stretching from /u/'s second game to their second Elite semi-final -- often as either the sole goal-scorer, carrying the team on her back; or as the breaker of a floodgate for /u/'s goalscoring effort. Make no mistake: /u/ are back in force, and with it, Purest Form of Love at the helm, reminding anon that his relationship with his hand (or animé body pillow) will never be quite as patrician.
