    I'd like to thank every participate for making this a fine tournament to host. For the first time in ages, we had a multi-day tournament that didn't stagnate into unresponsiveness! Yay!

    Now, a lot of you are probably wondering why I asked you to send me in your battle videos when you were done with your matches. Well, originally the plan was for me to purchase one of these, record each individual match, and post it on Youtube for an exhibition of the entire tournament. Unfortunately, I chickened out and never bought the device so the videos won't hit youtube with my help, and I'd hate to ask others that can to help and pin them with such a huge workload. Instead, here are all the battle videos I've received, enjoy!
