Here's the final scores! As you can see, there's a 5-way tie for first at 300 points. No one got the extra points in the Finals and it wiped out a LOT of points, which is why we have tons of people at 0. There were also 211 people that voted and participated.
Well over 200 players?! Guys, that was awesome. I'm glad the series entertained and amused so many of you. And really... 300pts was the winning score? It's kinda awesome to think that any one battle could have changed that outcome completely.
To the final Five Winners: if you're interested, send me your address in PM and I'm going to see what I can do to get you a prize for your excellent guessing!
To everyone: I guess let me know if you want to see this happen again. There are already a bunch of new 100pt figures, or I could take a look at all of those 50pt figures. Personally I like that there are almost 50 72pt figures! But after a quick check I see that we're only 2 new figures away from 100 75pt figures... so maybe that's the next thing!
Should I bring back Uatu and Bob? They seemed like the right "voices" for play-by-play sportscaster-style reporting.
I gotta say that the last battle was crazy for me. When it started and ended all I could think was "No one is going to believe this!" But the dice told the story and I just tried to keep it fun for you all.
Thanks again for reading and playing and everything!
Oh... and I think it might be time for my Generic Generic Reviews to make their return... hmmm... any good ones lately?
I was in a 66-way tie for 45th place! YEAH, BABY!
Seriously, though, I enjoyed this article series SO much: thank you, jackstar7, for putting in the work necessary to write it up, post it, and (most importantly!) letting us all piggy-back in on the fun!
Thanks as well to Jerry_Damage for the scorekeeping!
I can't wait to join Uatu and Bob Monitor for the next cosmic-sized throwdown, regardless of what it is! (idea!: If you're looking for a quick one to keep everyone 'on the hook' while you cook up another ROYAL rumble, there ARE only eight 8-point figures & pogs (not including the Universe Paramedic, as it's the same as the XP one... )
Again, this was a really fun, inter-reactive read. Loved it!
Also, if you do the 50 pointer write-up, there will be a conflict of interests with Uatu!

Reason: oopsies! wrong name! whatta maroon!
They were all a ton of fun to read. I look forward to 75 point battles and eventually the 50 pointers would be insanely fun. Also Bob and Uatu give a nice multifranchise voice for the piece. keep up the awesome work.
