Now that the game's over I want to give some credits:

bowtown, SureShot, and orange&blue. you guys came up huge, especially in the trust department and were reliable on a daily basis. I'm EXTREMELY happy at least two of you got to the final 3... though I was SURE keeping you guys downlow would get all 3 in.

apa and med. we started planning from before day one, and they taught me a ridiculous amount fast and helped curb my innate blood thirst. I, or my fireteam, obviously wouldn't have gone nearly as far without you guys. My biggest regret in this game was miscounting the day Mediator got voted off. We were soooooo close and could've had it locked in, but Med wanted to take the fall for Amesj and Gunns.

and of course Hotrod. After the target got placed on Apa, we needed another inside man. no one could've done the job better.

Also thanks to Falconer and JCM, although you two were more of Apa's guys than mine.

Honorable mentions:
Broncobiv
bfoflcommish
vance
(sorry, you 3)
gunns, despite leaking everything we ever fed you
amesjosh, despite giving me a headache on a daily basis from your sheer unpredictability

Also to:
TheDave and CBF for the most transparent and fun blackout round ever. Close fight, but I did tell you.

Everyone else:

JCM's speech should include a thank you to Fort Collin's Comcast internet from stopping me from making the vote that would've Killed JCM in the Ghost Round...

There were a few of us that figured out we were betting on the right horse very early and two of us rode it all the way to the finish line. You call that not playing the game, I call it winning the game (or almost winning). Donít like it? Too bad Iíll be drinking champagne on the medal podium while the rest of you are crying in your cups of wine made from the sourest of grapes over in Wraiths lounge.

All this said there are some major props that need to go out to some people who I never would have gotten here without, one especially. Those people know who they are and I know who all of them are, even if we didnít speak at all during the game. The rest of you can drop deadÖ oh wait you already did. It was my pleasure.


A final huge thanks to Old Dude for putting together a really great game. Iíll be back for more. Until then, if anyone needs me, Iíll be over on the secret Noob message boards.

Sincerely,
bowtown
Mr. Irrelevant

Ps. Conklin, Iím still having trouble accessing that thing. Can you make sure itís functioning properly?

Who cares? I abandoned all hope of winning by coming into the open in the blackout round by tugging on your strings to draw fire until you guys actually tried to split votes!

Then when you realized you didn't have enough and tried to re-focus on Apa. It was too late and I got 3!



Beautiful round.

My favorite editorial comment received:

Screw appeasing a ghost.

23 enemies down, lost 1 teammate. Control the entire final eight.

I already won.

JCMElway x 1
Falconer x 1

And on the pedestal these words appear:
My name is Ozymandius, King of Kings,
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Hey Old Dude thanks for this year it was so much fun. I hope you were convinced to continue this tradition after thinking about ending it last year. I officially announce my retirement from this crazy game.

But I hope you continue to run this thing and next year I hope to be your assistant.

By this time next year, maybe I'll have more time - so I can play! (Under some assumed name, of course!)

If you want to play let me know I will run it if need be. But then again I doubt I will be around much myself to devote the effort needed.

But seriously, thanks for the diversion and the fun. Even if a psycho inbred hick from Arkansas can't separate life from a game I still enjoyed myself.

Yes Ark Psycho that was directed at your sad pathetic ass.
