    WOOT! Quite the shock given where the Paladins are in the standings right now. Figures it would take a "real" fake person to close it out for the win. I really thought at the start of the season that the real Paladins would be a much more competitive team than the last few seasons, so nice to see it play out in the Cup. So make sure you PM me with the settings you used soon Wolvie.

    Thanks so much for reviving the Cup Wolvie, appreciate all the work you did to make it happen. Expect my "financial donation" to a charity of your choice to arrive in your bank account shortly...

    Wish i had more time (and a better memory) to finish the Cup sooner. Hopefully next time I won't be as busy. Maybe I'll do this every four fake years...
