Regular observers of our boards probably have been aware of all the fun happening with our Wheel of Time
cage matches. Well, we learned from the best: Suvudu. "For the past few years, Suvudu has been the home of Cage Match, where we pit fantasy and science fiction characters against each other in a March Madness-style bracket."
March Madness? Wait a moment--is that not precisely the month we are in? Yes it is, so it is once again time for the epic Suvudu cage matches. For a list of which characters have been chosen to participate, you can have a look at the Character list
. To see who will be competing against whom, you would be best served by looking at the Bracket
Since it's far into March already, the competition has advanced to the 3rd Round, which will determine who makes it into the Round of 8.
Current combatants are Saphira vs Zaphod Beeblebrox
, who are standing in a very close lockdown in regards to votes, and Anomander Rake vs Bast
, with Anomander taking the lead. The winning combatants of those two battles will in turn be fighting against each other in the next round. Moiraine Damodred vs Jardir
is one to fuel our Wheel of Time
pride, seeing as Moiraine is taking the lead and the other battle in that bracket is Kelsier vs Ray Lilly
, with Kelsier taking the lead. On the other side, we have Revan vs Mr. Wednesday
, with their votes being but 1 or 2% apart, and Granny Weatherwax vs Napoleon (on a dragon)
, with Granny taking the lead. In our last bracket we have Julia Wicker vs Kylar Stern
, with Kylar taking the lead by far, and the last match is between Erevis Cale vs Rachel Morgan
, with Erevis narrowly taking the lead by 1%.
The voting for the Round 3 cage matches closes ON THURSDAY, MARCH 22nd, 2012, AT 5 PM, EST. That's later today, so if you're not liking one of the current winners, you'd better rally your voters and see if you can change the outcome.
Now, we all know that the original knock-out stages are never as fun as the more important battles. As such, I think reading the next set of battles, with the voting due to start on the 26th of March, will be quite the fun activity. So, be there or miss out!
