    I can't wait. I've enjoyed reading the other showdowns in the past.

    I prefer 16 games over 8.

    Me either. I was surprised when I saw that Guild Wars won both years. You would think WoW would have won at least one. Are the same MMORPGs going to be in it this year?

    It will probably be in the Review Directory again, but may do something with it here.

    Ok, might get this started this week:).

    We are probably going to have two matches per week for the first round since it is getting late in the year. 16 seems to be the best number of games.

    The final two slots have now been determined. Pirates of the Burning Sea and Rappelz are the the last two games to enter the Showdown.

    It has also been decided that the forum will be responsible for determining any tiebreakers.
