I felt bad this never ended. But I'm not sure it's in an acceptable timeframe for resurrecting. The problem is context. Contestants usually make finals strategies that build off of earlier ones, with some sense that the host and judges know their general strategy. If new judges jump in with no prior battle knowledge, they might just see a bunch of nonsense instead of a coherent plan.
This has the potential to affect Id as much as me, so it isn't self-interest. I'd also rather see it end and lose than not see it end, so there's also that. But it was a fun tourney. I'm still going to add it to the tourney history thread sometime.
So, this entire tourney ended. In the past, we've had tourneys reach the playoffs, sometimes even finals, but not actually finish the matches. But this ended completely. We just never got judge votes.
Occasionally Id's presentation was all over the place. But he also built a tourney-killer. I was proud of my effort, and felt strongly about my amalgam. But this was always Id's tourney to lose. And everyone pretty much knew it. We can't ever know how a particular crop of judges will lean, especially given two strong amalgams. But I personally felt like I lost.
So I'm conceding the match.
Yes, this is well after the fact, but it seemed a shame to never resolve something that ended entirely. Id earned the win, and I hope that late is better than never for a tourney win.
Once the Secret Wars stuff ends, I'm adding several entries into the Tourney Respect Thread. This will be included.
My whole strategy here was being deliberately obtuse about Id's strategy in the hopes that judges didn't understand the full magnitude of it. And/or turning his own power on him. I clearly didn't have enough on my own. Was a fun match to try to figure out strategically though.
