Ill start simming tomorrow. For the group stage, ill sim matches for two groups at a time. Four matches a day for 12 days. Tomorrow will be Day 1 of matches for Groups A & B.

You'll notice the first post has everyone's picks. Ill update that post with groups, standings, and matchups.

Ill have the groups thrown up on that 1st page in a few minutes.

Looks like group G is the easy group and Group H & B are the groups of death...
