I'd be interested to know why AFB didn't chose Group A AND Conbox since even in the event that they would have lost to Envy they still would only have had to face the winner of X-6 and Conbox.
To me that would have been an almost guaranteed path to the semis. Well, at least this makes the groups slightly more balanced.
I don't know how to properly quantify AFB's performance this season because their group was, imo, the 2nd weakest but I'll give them a slight edge considering how much better they look now that their unit has been improved.
