Before I announce the winner, I want to say that, for me, this was an epic read. Both of you did an awesome job and in my opinion both of you are deserving of the win. I also want to apologize again for forgetting the post count for the fight as I'm sure what I was going to do with 2 more posts would have been fun to not only read but for both of you to write. I also want to apologize a little for writing this out of character, but at least it's a safe bet that if I do it this way there won't be a thong dance in this post. I know. I know. You really wanted the thong dance but in all honesty, I'm a little tired today.
I want to thank Imp, Storm, The Imposter, Jacogos, Wattz, Mary Sue and Kris for helping with the the judging duties for this battle. I imagine it wasn't the easiest task and you are all awesome for helping out.
I also want to thank everyone who entered this year. All your contributions have helped to make the Rumble what it is. And despite a few hiccups along the way, all of it was awesome and I look forward to doing this again next year.
And finally, I want to thank the members of staff who contributed to this by judging the battles and coming up with wonderful and creative fields for the competitors. Also for putting up with my insanity, but they should all be used to that by now
So now, without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to announce the winner of the 2012 Rumble on RPA.
Once again, congratulations to both combatants for making it to the gold match. You both worked hard at this and in my opinion both deserve to win.
As always Auki and Car'mael, you may contact Kris or I for more information on what the judges said on how they came to their decision.
Thanks everyone and see you next year!
