I for one think that is a very interesting spread in there with a lot more Nids finishing in the top spaces.  We’ll be going over the top armies in detail in the days ahead. I’ll leave it up to you tea leaf readers to decipher what themes are proving to be successful in the current meta.  Have at it armchair generals.
