Gamespot this question is directed at you: How come right after every sinlge round you guys posted a ROUND RUN DOWN article shortly after the rounnd ended. Now all of the sudden it is over with a delclared winner and still several days later there still is no article.... hhmmmm somethiing smells alittle fishy with actions like that. It's is only hurting you more and more the longer you wait..... I mean come on there was 31K comments in round 6 tier alone, I think people are going to notice..

October can't come soon enough, I'm really curious about how the forums will look on the site.

Congrats to Stevo_the_gamer  :)
