If you are reading this message, my team has already been vanquished.
Well, this has been another fun and unpredictable contest. I won four straight defeating a couple of powerhouses along the way.
Then I got beat in ignominious fashion in three straight battles (one of them lost me TWO characters and 3 cards. Crap!), before getting one last victory against my early pick for winner (Flash and Icarus), before bowing out in the weirdest circumstance yet----Metamorpho vs. Wonder Girl. Do they have powers or not? Is Wonder Girl Venus Williams or reece Witherspoon size? in a sceincell of all things.
Ah well. I admit I did get a tad frustrated at times. I sheepishly admit that I do tend to get TOO invested in things like this despite my best efforts not too. So, if I offended anyone at any point, I truly do apologize.
This was a blast and added some fun to my life during a couple of difficult trials over the last few months.
I want to, first of all thank Ladyjay. She convinced me to join up in the first place basically. I hate doing these generally because of my aforementioned problem with getting too invested, but she was working ehr butt off to get one started and I agreed to participate to help get the owner numbers up there.
Knowing little about current incarnations of these characters I thought I would bow out quick and be done with it anyways. Boy was I wrong.
Also, Ladyjay was in constant communication helping me along the way. She also runs a really good online comic store that i discovered during this and will be visiting again! And her tireless and mostly thankless work made all this happen mostly!
I also want to thank the silent contributors, Valiantone and Alphacomics and Jim!
I know Jim and Valiant helped out and they did it thanklessly. Your effort is appreciated. And ALpha (who we all know is already one of my two ABSOLUTE PREFERRED COMIC SOURCES) selflessly pldeging free comics to the top three places!
Don't worry, Alpha. I already decided i'm throwing a decent order your way regardless of whether I won or not. I haven't forgotten about you!
I want to thank all the other participants too. Ghost was a constant source of behind the scenes banter that enhanced the experience (be on the look out for an announcement from the two of us by the way).
Icarus, Bobafett and comicclint (my onetime partner) also bantered a little behind the scenes.
The other owners, eville1, Ukblueky and burning doom certainly provided their moments as well.
Mostly I want to note that this was the most drama free contest I can remember. All you owners deserve a pat on the back for that!!
One more thank you.....attilla, dreadnok1, comicreaderbatman and any other CCler I may have forgotten to mention that wasn't an owner but commented and helped make the whole game more fun. Thanks!! Run a team next time why doncha.
ah well. The cards were a blast. The Metamorpho/Swamp Thing fight was a highlight. GREAT JOB EVERYONE! GOOD LUCK TO ALL WHO REMAIN!!
