    All I can say is, Good job Han!

    Keep up the good work. I know some people in this forum were a bit rough on you with your polls, but they'll know better next time :D

    I don't know about you guys, but I tend to burn out. Right now I'm all gung-ho for another go-round, but I'm afraid that 2 or 3 bouts into it people will start to get bored. Ever read the first book in a series and loved it so much you jumped right into the next only find you mind wandering after the first few chapters? I think that might happen to a lot of people here.

    Also, I'd like a heads up as to the general idea of who will be included in the next tourny and some time to "bone up". Not the acctual contestents mind you, but what seires, what seasons, what media will inculded (if thats even a consideration), that sort of thing. But, whatever happens consider me there!

    Also, if you decide to wait a while and people are itching for a contest, consider a mini-contest as a filler. Like the Combiner brawl, or (my favorite idea) a team match-up.

    I say give it a month or so...

    Or on the other hand... would that hit exam time? Maybe we should got with the momentum we currently have? We won't get as many people following during the school wrap-up, and I would hope we'd get less people during the summer.

    But I suspect with the lower-rung characters in this tournament, discussion will not be as... involved... as some of these matches. :)

    How about starting after RotF's release date? Huge influx of people, potentially. All with ideas to contribute.

    Will the next round be TFs not used in this round?

    Or are we just going with the same TFs, different random selection of battles?

    I have no problem giving some insight into the next round although I will not go into the specific bots etc that will be involved.

    The next tournament is already finished. It will consist of G1 characters that were NOT in the first tournament. So as far as brushing up on characters, watching the G1 seasons would be good (hmmm maybe we should wait till next fall after the seasons have be re-released).

    We will be doing a Unicron trilogy, a Beast wars, an animated and maybe some others in the future. That being said - I think each version will potentially bring in a different crowd. We could always throw in a Beast wars one this summer and hold off on the G1 until next spring or somethign but like SMOG - i like the momentum we have built up so far and according to the vote it seems like most are ready to keep the ball rolling.

    All ideas are welcome and I will do some thinking and watch the polls before I decide anything!

    I'm a little sad that I came in when I did, and lost interest when I did.

    However, I wouldn't mind seeing round 2 when it start's up (hopefully I won't lose interest this time around). Mostly because thinking up creative ways for the bot's to win was fun. Not to mention reading and contributing to the discussion was the most fun I have had in, well, ever.

    Honestly for me, I could go for this summer. I got burned out a little bit in the end so jumping back into it and running home every day to check boards right now isn't exactly on my mind.
