Top 8: Feature
Top 4: Feature
and as for the aurkus not attacking, I did attack with it and me and my opponent even took it off but after that turn the judge said he didn't hear me declare the attack so it didn't count =/.
Also when i reborned the aurkus, I almost instantly realized it when i did it but i wasn't sure what to do so i didn't say anything. But i knew i was going to be flamed for that once i did it so id figure id try to explain.
Match for 3rd place: Me vs. Roy St.Clair
