The new format of the Cup has not proven helpful to the Mermaids. After their brief stint in fourth place during Altador Cup VI, they dropped back down to eighth with the introduction of the new format, and seem to have stabilised in the middle tiers since. Unlike many teams, and in a change from their earlier years, Maraqua tends to find a steady pace for the season and sticks to it. This doesn't exactly make the team a powerhouse, but they shouldn't be underestimated by those pushing for the top tier, as the Mermaids have been known to give a nasty tail slap to the unwary. Their tight-knit fanbase keeps them going, even after many teams lose steam.
