Hi from vacation all! First off I gotta say that I love this fan ficition thread. Second, question for WHG’s new forum account: How was LOTR not a contender? I rag on them a lot. But the first thing I said at the start was that all they had to do to avoid even risking losing the world was avoid history repeating itself and not run their mouths. Otherwise easy win for them. As for Cult having a chance maybe we don’t. Or maybe we do. Guess we’ll find out. We threw our dog in the fight because it’s fun to compete. Ultimately whether we win or lose, we did it our way and had fun getting here. Don’t think it matters much for LOTR though as they’ve made everyone hate them and generally accept the risk of a Panda victory if it means bending you guys over the table. At the end of the day, the only group that ended up helping Pandas was LOTR. As for CH making themselves out as elites. That wasn’t them. I hyped them up. And that’s because I know their core group well enough to say they’re good.
