FCS Waffles! Which is better?

The FCS waffle machine is a new edition to the cafeteria and everyone’s wondering which flavor of waffle to choose. Now, you may be confused, thinking, “Flavored waffles?

Of course it is hard to compare two rosters from different times, but we will try our best. We will be judging them on tournament placement and overall skill in the players. We will be counting the amount of tournament wins each roster had. Astralis has won eleven tournaments with its current roster; they have only had nine months to win these tournaments…
