Sorry for the double post, forgot that I had to do this.
Day 1 Analysis - Division I
Latiosmaster42 vs. Dhampy This match was highly anticipated and was pretty epic in the polls. Dhampy put up a great fight but down the home stretch, Latios snatched the lead and the win away from Dhampy. At the beginning, things were looking like they could go either way after the first tie vote followed by a vote for Dhampy. Things got shaken up though by four consecutive Latios votes nearer the end. And, in the end, Latios pulled a great win out of his hat and a great start to the season.
raha vs. jane29 This match was insane. Through the whole first page, the votes were totally back and forth. It took a strong five vote run on the second page to seal this raha victory. jane put up quite the intesne battle though and I think we can expect great things from both these users this season.
forty-two vs. airhead Reminiscent of the raha/jane match? Yes indeedy. Another great match between to VERY evenly matched users. With nearly EXACT even voting on page 1 into a rough home stretch. This was neck and neck the whole way and forty-two barely squeaked out a win against airhead.
insomniac vs. FFQueen92 This match was a bit more one sided. The first few votes showed an even match but by the end of page 1, FFQueen was already up 5-2. On the second page, the exact same vote count happened and FFQueen landed a very solid 10-4 victory over a tough opponent. This is one to watch out for this season, folks.
Day 1 Analysis - Division IV
Zeth_Durron vs. Gorillaz2-D Wow. This one kept me on the edge of my seat. With Gorillaz up 4-3 on the first page, things were looking very tense. I clicked on this topic several times to see if either had pulled ahead. When page 2 started coming in, things stayed tense. Some doubled-up votes showed up for both players but in the end, the Gorilla won by the skin of his teeth. 7-6.
AdmiralThrawn vs. pisces And we have our first tie match of the season. This match was THE most intense of the whole day. I was rather surprised that newly-returned pisces did this well against Thrawn. Maybe he has more in him than I thought. No need to comment on the voting here, the score speaks for itself. 7-7.
Spamwise_GameG vs. Elite See above description and read it into this match. Exactly the same. Two ties in one day? In the same division? Yep. You read me right.
Vegetta vs. LoC_Leftie This was another close one. I wasn't really sure just how Vegetta would do against up-and-coming CHU superuser LoC. He did great. I guess nostalgia DOES play a part, eh? Loljk. This match was another that could have gone either way after page 1. Still, LoC kept his head above water and came up with a close 8-6 win over the saiyan.
