OAB - Appreciate your lists!

Is 7 of 11 AB TCers high or low these days?

I must admit I greatly enjoyed watching my Rookie AB discover his rhythm and weapon. I'm amazed that a critical hit with a shortsword can do so much damage to a fully armored-up TP!

I think its a bit high.

ABs winning the majority of the ADM level classes is not unusual, but ABs recent success in basic is pretty closely related to the prizes that are offered.

Granted, there were two natural ABs in the finals of Rookies in January, but that is the exception to the rule. This time all seven of the AB TCs were prize modified or created, whereas three of the four non-AB TCs were natural warriors.

Its a positive feedback loop. ABs excel in tournaments, so people use their prizes on ABs, which causes ABs to excel in tournaments, etc. I'd still bet on a natural ST or LU over a natural AB in basic.

I'd say it's about par for the course.

Wow, a mail in tourney. Brings back memories. It's been a long time for this crusty old manager. Just popped on to see what was up and this spoiler thread brought a little tear to my eye. Good fighting to you all.

The FONZ may rise again....or not.

What's this? A few weeks back Consortium speaks the word that shall never again be spoken, per Sue, T**S and now the word FONZ reappears. See what you have done Wayne? You have awoken a great evil! Laughing

This is ALSO straight up nasty. I didn't catch it because I never peruse the FtF newsletters very closely any more. Did this warrior run in the mailer? I'm guessing they're both strikers??

Funny, my tag line still references TOGS too. Shows how long since I've been around.
I play some WOW with Sentinel and he says hey to everybody.
I will unhijack your thread now.
