The story on 21 September 2018 explained how Echochamber and ISR FireFlash represent the world's top level of the unofficial and undefined amateur teams and how the two teams battled for the spot behind Belgium's 4-way world champions.
NMP PCH HayaBusa and Echochamber will travel to Australia next and represent Belgium and Sweden at the FAI World Meet 2018, while ISR FireFlash has to follow the competition downunder from their homeland and cheer for their former 8-way partners via the internet.
Echochamber finished with another impressive 21.1 average in Belgium. The NSL News had reported on 4 August 2018 how the Swedish national team did not even bother with the 20+ average and lifted their record average to the 21+ level in August this year. Echochamber's highest 10-round average before was 16.5 at the national championships in 2016. Last year's 20.0 average came after only six rounds and with the support by a 31-pointer for a very fast sequence (J-F-C-H-9) in Round 2.

The Swedish team has shown a proper cleaning phase before and is aware of the potential and the results that come with minimum damage by penalties. Echochamber had realized after the Wind Games 2018 and the Swedish Indoor Nationals 2018 that they lost too many points and worked on this part of 4-way competition.
There is a good chance that Echochamber will show the 22+ average in Australia if the last cleanup session before the world meet is successful.

Black Cat is not competing for Russia in 4-way this year, and the Qatar Tigers will be the top contender for the 4th place without any unknown surprises by a national team stepping up to the 22+ level.
Switzerland has a strong 4-way team with the Airheads who finished not that far behind the Qatar Tigers (31.4 - 29.1) at the CISM Championships this year.
However, Echochamber could have an opportunity to place better than any other Swedish 4-way team in history. The scoring average is already on Swedish record level, and the best placing could follow in Australia.
The 5th place at the FAI World Meet 1993 in Eloy (14.8) is the target for Echochamber, and the 4th place could be in reach...
