    I always liked Shockwave more, but the logical voice in the back of my head said that there's a reason Megatron was the leader and Shockwave wasn't.

    Sorry about that, I'm not very good at the whole 'sum up my complex or elaborate thoughts' thing. That's why I have that first line in my sig.

    I can try, but the only thing that I can think of that would definitely cut some length would be to only respond to one person per post. I just don't do that normally since I'm used to forum netiquette where you don't put one of your own posts right after another of yours (a no spamming thing).

    Well, anyway, I'll give it a shot. :thumbs2: 

    Well, we could make this more like a normal thread. Here, I'll do some name calling.

    Why you so-and-so, how dare you disagree with anything I have to say?!!!111

    You're just a blankity-blank.

    :) 

    Sorry, I don't have time for anything else right now. Hopefully, I'll get the time to continue the discussion later today.

    Why is this poll still open? Shouldn't there be a new match by now? Did I miss a rule change or something?

    edit: oh, it is closed, still no new fight though...

    Sorry had to coach a baseball game after the school day way over, just got home! Let me eat and then I will post the first of the final four...or should I tease you and wait until the actual final four starts!!!

    Too bad Sto missed on this one. The discussion had on this thread has been some of the best yet (minus my insensitive nature and a little attack here and there haha)

    Yes it wasn't the same without the Klingon. I like including him in my closing comment and now I cannot....But at least Megatron won as he should have.

    ALL HAIL MEGATRON.

    Hey, omegagoalie: In honor of Megatron winning the bout, here's a little joke for you:

    Warning: Bad pun alert. Highlight if your dare....

    Q:Why is Megatron ruthless?

    A:Because someone stole his candy bar.

    Sto! Hope your Ok brother. this last fight thread was a MONSTER! You gotta go allllll the way back to page 162 to find the begining, but goes pretty much uninterupted from there. The short version is: We were all pretty well and evenly divided on the outcome, and wether logic and planning could win over bravado, quick thinking and raw power. then the Cult thing got attacked, Solo took some lumps, Ominus' dizzying scientific analisis caused a few heads to explode and some eyes to bleed, SMOG showed up a little later than usual and (as always) laid out the facts of the matchup. Everyone seemed to have an opinion on this one. Megatron took it in the end, only to get stepped on by Metro early in the next round (so far anyway).

    glad to have you back, feel better.

    I hope you're ok, Sto. It was fun, but we did miss your input on things.

    Some people have different page counts, so I go by actual post numbers, since they stay the same. For me that post is about midway down page 81 (at 20 PPP). Anyway, go to post #1618 as that's the beginning of the Megs vs. Shocky debate. Enjoy!

    Nice to have ya back, Sto. Hope everything's alright with you, considering.

    Have fun perusing this monster thread. I was busy on the weekend, so had to come in late myself. Some good arguments put out there both ways (and some not so good arguments ;D ), but I'm happy that Megatron took this in the end.

    "Been in hospital since x" never sounds like a good thing. Hopefully, I'm at least a little bit wrong in this case.

    Heh, and I was holding back about half of what I could've put in because I didn't want to type that much.

    On a similar note I was going to ask Trebleshot and Smog if they felt like continuing the Megatron vs. Shockwave discussion until the thread got merged into the general tournament thread, but it looks like I'm a bit late on that. Oh well...

    I'm not sure what I would add to my arguments in favour of Megatron. This is getting... exhausting. :) 

    Anyway, at the moment, I'm currently locked in a losing battle, espousing Megatron's potential to upset Metroplex. Gah... I have no life. :)

    I wouldn't have minded, Omnus, but I also haven't checked in on the Megs vs Metro fight since I last posted. Work has been hectic due to the potential problems from the pending April Fools virus.

    OptimusSolo, what happened to the nice bracket link with the design, colors, and graphics as opposed to the ASCII kind of page?

    Sto, good to see you're back. A prolonged Hospital stay can't be good.

    This contest went downhill as soon as Predaking beat Rodimus, frickin' bull****. I suspect Metroplex is going to win simply because he's just sooooo awesome.
