    I'm running the same basic format as last time, potentially with a couple of tweaks. For those who don't remember it:
    - We start with 128 members
    - Rounds 1 and 2 are groups of 8, with 4 members advancing.
    - Round 3 drops to groups of 4, with 2 advancing.
    - The Round of 16, Quarters, Semis and the Final become one-on-one, sudden death battles.


    And as per usual follow forum rules in the threads, no personal attacks etc. etc.

    Not participating. Wouldn't want to inevitably beat Daemon and break his heart. Or Phlegm. Or Athlai. Actually, **** Phlegm.
    This was a serious post:

    Well thus far this is an underwhelming response.

    Nominations, people. I've had 16 nominations to fill 28 positions.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    How come andyc isn't on the list?

    Nominate andyc.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.
