It's been awhile since we've seen the Ultra, as the Toronto-based team hasn't played in a league tournament since the Florida home series all the way back at the beginning of May. Ironically, their last matchup was against the Guerrillas in a five-game set that ultimately saw the Los Angeles squad make it to the finals of the aforementioned tournament. I would be shocked if a similar elongated series didn't occur in this one, as both Los Angeles and Toronto are way too up-and-down to sweep an opponent.
Unless something drastic changes for the individual lineups (please Ultra, sub in CleanX), I think you're going to need to slot at least two players in from this matchup, and more than likely will mandate you use a captain spot on one of those players as well.
I'm going to lean Guerrillas as the series winner essentially by default, as I could see either team taking the win, but the most important part of this equation is how many games are played. Methodz is essentially the sole consistent slayer on the Ultra, whereas the Guerrillas have a number of guys that can go off in a given match. You're not necessarily stacking this contest, but when you have just three games to work off of from
