Due to this contest having an odd number of matches in rounds 1 and 2 and ending at awkward times, we were given two mid-contest bonus matches. The first of which was a last place affair between the three round 1 characters that did the worst, because if there is anything round 1 needed it was one more match to determine the ultimate last place guy.
We all knew who that was going in, Chester is a champ like that, but there was something hysterical about Caim getting 55% of the vote while only getting 8880 votes. But hey, Chester got a total of 24 hours to make some history, so it can't be all bad. The other great thing here is Luster Soldier's polls on the board decided all of our bonus matches, yet somehow Allen's wife found the time to talk smack on the dude after the contest ended. The whole thing was just great.
And with that, round 2 (and somehow, the contest's entire stretch run) was upon us!
This was the bonus match post-Round 1, it didn't count for points I think and I also think we voted on what match we wanted to see. LusterSoldier usually remembers this stuff better than me.
Something tells me we could have come up with something more interesting, but at the time the board was obsessed with finding the weakest possible character in these things. Yet somehow we all knew and wanted it to be Chester but we also voted for him?? You can't make this shit up, we never agree on anything. The only thing we learned from this match is that Caim is so weak he can barely double Spring Breeze Dancin'. We also learned just how low we could get the votals to go.
