    Sorry, my wireless just failed in the middle, flashed off, then straight on again but i still DC'ed. I tried to get it back, but yeah, sorry....

    Sikh was in control of the match however, especially as I didn't know 2 of his pokemon (and how they fared against Heatran, which was my main option to take out the rest of his team).

    Man why did this have to happen in the final...

    hmm, so everyone says sikh was in control and zakkusu d/ced? suspicious.

    lol, just kidding. I wish I could have watched.

    Congratulations to Sikh Assassin for winning the first Official Battling 101 Tournament!

    You've made both your tutors (despite what they think) proud. Thanks for being patient everyone; hold tight as we prepare for the next round of tutoring. I'll leave this thread open until that time for final reflections on the last match and the tournament itself.

    Consolations to our runner up, Zakkusu. Thanks for being such a good sport - and great job getting this far!

    With that, the first Official Battling 101 Tournament draws to a close. Thanks everybody!

    By time....been waiting since May, like when the tourney was in 8 pairs...Probably the start.

    Question: Will it start in the next 30 minutes?If so, I'll stay on.

    It will most likely start within the next day or two. We need to get a few things in order beforehand.

    [Hope that people acknowledge mine and Jabba's sarcasm]

    Congratulations to our young, bright Sikh Assassin for the impressive victory on his part. Unlucky to the tremendous Zakkusu, for an incredible, yet un-expected stretch that granted him to the finals.

    Well played.

    Congratulations Sikh, and apologies about that mess up in the final. I guess the underdog (I was primarily predicted against in every round hehe) could only go so far. I look forward to the next tourney where hopefully I can try to knock you off your throne :)

    Also thanks to Gorm for the tutoring heh. I wouldn't have gotten as far without it, honest. I'm just happy my Smogon battling debut was a success :)

    Could someone put me down to be in the next one. I would really like to be in it and have been waiting for awhile but I will not be able to get on until the 27 or 28 and Im not sure if that would be too late.

    well, by then it'll be already halfway through, so I'm not sure the merit of going for that round. I'd just wait for the next one.
