    By popular demand I will be attempting to hold the rest of this tournament all on this thread. If at any time it seems to not be working this way I will go back to the seperate threads with Polls to continue.

    Let me lay a few ground rules for how this will work.

    1. Every new contest will be posted with the regular pictures so you can know when one contest ends and the other begins. I will also do a post with a final count to signify the end of the previous contest. There will be a bracket link on the first post of this thread for you to check the brackets at any time.

    2. In order to help me keep track of votes please update the numbers every time you vote. For example, if the previous post has stated

    Menasor 1
    Warpath 0

    And you wanted to vote for Menasor...at the bottom of your post PLEASE put

    Menasor 2
    Warpath 0

    This will help eliminate me trying to determine if you are just making conversation or if you are in fact casting a vote. It will also make it a LOT easier to count up votes and therefore make it possible for me to post all the contests in a timely manner. So, thank you in advance for that!!

    3. For each contest there are no rules. You can make up whatever scenario you would like. You can have them fighting indoors, outdoors, on an island it doesnt matter. As long as you can explain your scenario and why the character would win you are good to go.

    So without further ado, let the games/discussions/debates/and votes BEGIN!!

    Cyclonus: Among the Decepticons, finding a genuinely loyal and competent second-in-command is a near impossibility. Cyclonus is the exception to that rule. Created by Unicron, Cyclonus is a being whose loyalty to Galvatron and the Decepticon cause is so intense as to exclude most other emotions and interests from his mind. He is dedicated to destruction in his leader's name.

    He also has brains to back up that dedication, power to enforce Galvatron's will, and the initiative to form plans and get them done. Cyclonus could easily rule the Decepticons himself if he so desired, either as a power behind the throne or directly overthrowing his psychotic master. His responses to any suggestions that he do so? "All hail Galvatron!"

    Scourge is Galvatron's implacable tracker and leader of his own cadré of huntsmen, the deadly Sweeps. He was created by Unicron from the remains of a dead Decepticon. Immensely powerful like all the Unicronian Decepticons, arrogance is his only true weakness. Despite being quite powerful in his own right, Scourge generally acts as a near subordinate to Cyclonus, and, despite his leadership of the Sweeps, is generally content to take orders from others. Scourge tends to grumble and complain a bit (a habit sometimes shared by his Sweeps).

    Now, I know technically Cyclonus is Scourge's boss of some sorts and I know you cant just go by tech specs. However, I was shocked at how similar their tech spec numbers were. I think this is a pretty good matchup and am undecided on how I will vote. So, everyone out there, convince me on who you think would win and WHY!

    Don't worry Maximus if the number of votes goes way down from what we were getting on the polls than I will go back to the polls in a heartbeat!!! (We had 57 votes in the last poll so lets see what we get for this one especially since it is a way better matchup)

    Remember if you are voting please help me out and do it by posting the following

    Cyclonus=#
    Scourge=#

    So, I will do it for you on that first one (this is not my vote)

    Cyclonus=1

    Scourge=0

    Cyclonus is just a little too powerful and a bit more resourceful than Scourge. I say that it goes down to the wire though.

    Honestly, I don't care for the new format either, or the lack of a poll. In fact, there's less discussion here then in any of the multiple poll threads. Heck, so far there's been zero discussion. When this first started, I was with some of the dissenting voices, figuring that you'd clutter up the GD with your inane poll threads, but the discussion has been fun and there's enough structure there to make it interesting. A year or so ago, we did have a poll forum, perhaps it's time to return to that idea?

    Cyclonus, despite his retarded tech specs, like speed (he's slower then Ramjet? How the heck does he make intersteller trips at "Mach 2", let alone how does one measure mach speed in space?) He is a warrior to Scourges tracker. Though usually both are pansies in nearly ever medium despite their badass introduction, going by the numbers, it's Cyclonus all the way.

    Cyclonus - 14
    Scourge - 0

    Cyclonus - 14
    Scourge - 1

    Seeing as I'm the antagonist underdogger, let's not forget scourge powered by starscream would kick Cyclonus's ass....

    Bumblebee 1st underdog 09!!!!
