Grats Kroxi. A tough break for me - I was on the opposite of your luck, always taking the second turn and, in the one battle that I was poorest at (Blood and Glory) getting stuck in against you. I'd already beaten the Beasts before, too. I COULDA BEEN A CONTENDER! Ah well, gratz on the victory sir, it was a scary, scary army list you had there.
I do think that Poll-voting would be a good one for this. Give everyone 1 vote, and there's nothing to worry about. Sure, they can vote for themselves, but it's 1 vote, and the opponent was given a fair chance to vote for himself too. Otherwise yeah, this is traditional VW formatting isn't it? I think it works just fine. As far as ideas for the next one? Not sure - I think running them the same way would work just fine, with the only change being the polls instead of bolded votes.
