    There will be no contest today. The 2nd Round will begin tomorrow and each contest will now be open for 48 hours.

    Contests to look forward to in the 2nd Round:

    Grimlock vs Ultra Magnus
    Soundwave vs Blaster
    Rodimus Prime vs Jazz

    Will any of the 1 or 2 seeds be eliminated or have a run for their money?

    Will the second round provide us with any of these future possibilities:

    Ultra Magnus or Grimlock vs Optimus Prime
    Starscream vs Megatron
    Shockwave vs Devastator

    Let the speculation and fun begin!!!

    48 hours? Really, there's only three good contests. The only two TFs that look to have a chance of knocking off one of the big guys are Starscream and Mirage. And I fully expect most people to say that Starscream will run away screaming. It's entirely probable that 12 out of the 16 second round matchups will be blowouts.

    When you do this one, you might want to mention in big letters in the first post that Ravage, Laserbeak, Steeljaw, etc, are not involved. That seemed to confuse a few people earlier.

    I respect your opinion, but disagree with them also. I think over half of them will be good matchups unless people refuse to breakdown the contests and aimply vote on 1st instinct.

    Also, in like the very 1st post in the Soundwave contest I put it does not include any casettes...but you are right some people dont take the time to read the entire thread so I will try to make it big and bold. I am a little slow with the computer though because i just broke one of my wrists and sprained the other one :(

    Will you be opening a new contest each day, and letting them run for 48 hours, or only one contest at a time, still? In other words: Day 1: Contest 1 starts. Day 2: Contest 1 continues, contest 2 starts. Day 3: Contest 1 over, contest 2 continues, contest 3 begins; etc.

    I would prefer a new one each day. I think the second day of each will not yield a lot more votes.

    May I suggest taking a look at how many people vote in the second day...and if it turns out the 2nd day is a waste...re-evaluating the whole 48 hours thing after a couple match-ups go by?

    I think 32 days for the second round may make things get stale.

    How many votes did Cliffy get?

    I'm a fan of Omegatron1's schedule too.

    In pure logic Metroplex would win this.. HE is a freakign cItybot

    and before anyone comes with that lame ( if they get inside him they will win)

    Metroplex fights in 2 forms,
    1: Battle Station, all gates closed full weapons armed, chance to get in .= about 0%
    2:Robot form, were would anyone get in there and with the FIREPOWER Metroplex has with him I dont see anyone having a chance against him.

    In my mind my vote for who wins is already decided and that would be the logical choice and that would be Metroplex. He has no equal in this battle of those contestant that is left( he will only loose if you ppl make up dumb assumptions he would fight in city mode with all doors open say, Hi come on in, AINT happening.

    The runner upp would be one of the combiners or Omega.

    but then again..knowing ppl here I sya Prime takes it-

    end rant. ;)

    don't think I've replied in a thread, but I've voted in most if not all. I've LOVED this! Really enjoyable contest. Thanks for doing it.

    I also say either one of the BIG guys like Omega and Metroplex or one of the gesalts or any of the leaders.

    Next time, Optimus Solo , have the tourny with out the gesalts (Only seperate members), because they might without default and have it more mixed up. (Just a suggestion)

    I just mentioned that because I'm hoping my man Blaster can at least keep it close.

    Sorry too many hours in the hospital Cliffjumper got 6 votes, the other 2 vote recipient should have been Thrust

    Love the ideas and agree that that schedule is worth trying and that way it wont matter how many people vote that second day. Also, as I have said before, the individual bots that make up the gestalts will get there day in the sun in a future contest.
