    Peru, Mexico and Argentina have tough groups. 

    If they play like they did before their match against Ecuador, then yes, Argentina has huge chances of fucking up; however, I doubt they will.

     

    As for Mexico, I'm sure they'll barely beat South Korea, get rekt by the germans and then "surprise" everyone beating Sweden - whether they qualify or not will depend on the goal difference.

  2. Turns out Peru's government is considering a takeover of their football federation, to which FIFA responded by threatening them with disqualification (essentially opening the doors to a New Zealand classification, but some news sources claim it'd be given to Chile instead). That will surely stop any nationalization of the organization on its tracks, but who nows if it'll actually work - football involves a lot of money and I'm sure the peruvian government would appreciate the extra income for whatever purposes it sees fit.

    Hoping England can actually do something next year (if they even qualify that is). But I can already predict the outcome. We'll qualify "comfortably", finish 2nd in the group and get knocked out by Germany somewhere down the line.

    England's pretty much through, they just need to win the next game - or at best tie and then win. If Slovakia doesn't win their next game, England's pretty much through.

    It would be amazing if my country Ecuador defeat Argentina in the last qualifier match, but knowing how important for the FIFA is to have Argentina for marketing purposes, I doubt it.

    Have some faith, Argentina is shit and football can be unpredictable (specially South America's). I, too, think Argentina will get a helping hand (if not several) from the refs, but there's always the chance they'll show us all just how bad they are. If not, we'll just have to deal with laughing at them fail miserably at the world cup for the sixth time in a row.

    Only Fernando & Lewis among current drivers, can be considered among the ATG.

    Except Lewis, unlike Alonso, has been able to compete due to his car alone. Skills not withstanding, that car he has is the reason he's winning so much. Take that away and he's good, not championship-winning good. Same way Vettel dominated due to his car a few years ago.

  6. I almost gave up on reading when I read that "Tankoubon are still printed in recycled paper", since that's wrong. Magazines are. Tankōbon are printed in good paper (some better than others). Magazines are meant to be thrown out and recycled so you go buy the tankōbon and support the industry, hence the difference in paper quality. I've bought several old and used (or what Japanese call "used", which is to say nearly-mint) tankōbon over the past year and they're not yellowed at all, not to mention I saw several older volumes of various series around the buttload of BookOffs I visited as well - no yellowness. I wonder how people treat their stuff for it to get yellowed. Probably leaving it under constant sunlight and shit-poor conditions.

     

    Additionally, you should educate yourself on how much of a pain in the ass it is to draw a weekly chapter even for the most mediocre of series. Coloring ain't as expensive as it used to be, but it's still time-consuming. Not everyone can get their publisher to hire another assistant or two to help ease the workload and many authors are already knees-deep in work to be able to pump out a new chapter every week fully colored - let alonefor the tankōbon. No one can touch things up on the tankōbon except the author him/herself - and that means cutting time dedicated to their already heavy workload.

     

    All that said, sure, colo could make things look nicer and tidier, but it's not really something manga needs. If anything, it needs to get good. So much average crap out there.

    Pre ordering games isn't that bad. I just think if people pre rider AAA games, then those games just like this are the biggest problems that occurs way more. Mostly games that aren't AAA ain't have problems of day 1 games like psycho pass Mandatory Happiness, steins gate 0 and j stars victory versus. It mostly depends on the publishers every no matter what a game will have problems no matter what. If a developer really cares of just not rushing and taking care of the issues before release, then pre ordering isn't going to be an issue by those parts. 

    Those examples are awful because they were all localized. By the time we got them they had been out for several months and wouldn't have issues as ridiculous as these, not to mention two of them are visual novels, not exactly something glitch or bug-prone.

  8. I think the most fair would be counting the number of correct (or exact) results and the one with more should be the overall winner.

    But we can use the other side of the argument as well: someone predicted more winners than the other one, even if he didn't get lucky with the exact results.

     

    I don't really have any ideas as to how to break the tie. I'll just trust Conn's judgment (and hope it doesn't screw me over :|).

  9. No congrats to potugal & his football suckers, now we know a team can win a tournament while winning only one game on time. UEFA has to have a reflexion on his rules, it's no more acceptable, like France playin' this game...

    If you're that bothered by it you should just stop being a France supporter. Probably the best solution to not having to cry over losing all the time.

     

     

    Anti-football is the way.

    Greece proved this

    Spain proved this

    FCR7 just followed the most ideal way  ;)

    ...But Spain is  the best thing to happen to international football since the late 1990s lol. If anything, it's Greece in 2004 and Italy in 2006, and it all stems back from Italy beating Brazil in 1982 ("the day football died").

  10. France BTFO. I didn't care who won but once Payet fouled Ronaldo in such a dirty manner, I couldn't help but wish for their demise.

     

    Shame the score fucked me over from winning this, but w/e. I'm happy for Ronaldo. Brotugal managed to pull off a Greece.

  11. "Play like shit"let's see if the French journalists still will not regret those words!

    They forgot how france was qualified for the 2010 world cup ( that henry handball against ireland was ... beautiful ) :)

     

    You'll have to specify which of the two xD .

    Portugal 0 vs 2 France


     


    Wtf I just checked the standings. How the hell did I get to second place when I feel I botched most of my predictions?

  13. I don't really care who wins now, but it'd be kind of funny if Portugal did. Ronaldo would have the chance of fucking over the host nation with a vastly inferior time - like it happened to him 12 years ago.

     

    Yeah we all know that handball was bullshit.  :lol:

     

    I hope France gets the final anyway, mostly cause of players like Payet and Griezmann. And I don't like Portugal anyway. :P

    A handball is a handball. That's what sucks about the rulebook - it's all up to the ref lol.

  15. Wales vs Belgium was one big fraud...

    frist goal came of a corner that shouldn't have been given because it was clearly offside, then the ref lets the game go on after 2. 2 no less penalties should've been called (foul on Nainggolan and hand ball by Ramsey....)

     

    Yeah, everyone's calling the ref as the reason Belgium lost, but here are some numbers (Wales on the left, Belgium on the right):

    Belgium kept the ball much more but hardly shot on-target, and both them and Wales were pretty even as far as shooting goes. Belgium crossed the ball a lot, but most of those were bad or cut-off and only a handful ended up as shots (and most were off-target). Belgium lost because they couldn't score more than once, so even if the ref fucked up a bunch of calls, it's still on them for not scoring when they could. It's the same as when Uruguay knocked Ghana off the World Cup in 2010: Ghana lost because they couldn't score that one penalty kick, not because the match was a fraud.

  16. I think Belgium wants to beat England as the greatest jobbers of the tournament. At this pace I don't think they'll ever stop being "the little team that could but doesn't", with the way they always seem to screw up at the last possible moments.

     

    Great job from Wales, with an overall less talented team and assets they took their chances when they had them. You know this is one heck of an odd Eurocup when one of the semi-final matches is freaking Portugal - Wales.

     

     

    So.. this is how it ends. Congratulations to Portugal. Although, I can't say they were the better team, they were lucky (as always). On the other hand, our tactics didn't work this time. We didn't use neither high nor low pressure what resulted all those good situations for Portugal. Also, it's kind of pity that our best player Błaszczykowki missed his penalty. We would have at least a bronze medal if we won this match..

     
    Luck or not they won and Poland didn't. We all know this sport isn't 'fair' (ask the Netherlands and their Clockwork Orange) and we all know the only tournament Italy actually played football in the past 20 years they lost 4-0 whereas their crappy 2006 World Cup resulted in a win. It's just part of the sport at this point, and unlike the MLB or the NHL you don't have multiple matches to play and prove your worth. Accept it and move on, hoping next tournament your team pulls it off (same way 22 other teams will this year).

  17. Not the same level of competition, but Portugal is reminding me of Paraguay 5 years ago during the Copa America held in Argentina, reaching the final without winning a single game (although they lost against Uruguay). Would be a bit funny.
