If you're not tired of running in circles around spires of rock and firing laser, arrows, various other projectiles, and bashing each other with shit... you should be. I gave you all an extra day and everything.
That being said, any duels that are still open are being closed, and will be handled with voting. Now read the following shit, because it's very important and I don't want to have private messages regarding it because you were too lazy to read this:
If your duel has managed to conclude itself (someone forfeited, one of you admitted defeat, whatever), and I have not yet closed it, let me know immediately so I can remove you from this list. If you were a part of a duel and were left waiting on someone's reply to your combat post for two days or more, you were made the winner by default, and your duel is now closed. There were a few of these, and they're not contestable. If you didn't post for two days or contact me, you lost your duel.
If your duel is still going on and hasn't been concluded yet, it is now time to stop bonking each other. The duels will all be finished by tomorrow evening, meaning that voting will be closed, the duels will be closed, and all Round 2 contestants will have been decided by then.
How the voting works:
You will click on the links for any fights you feel like voting on, and you will go vote there. At the very, very end of each of the threads that need voting, you will see two posts. One for each of the duelists. Voting is very simple. You will thumb up for the person you think deserves to win.
This is a vote. That means you may only vote for one of the duelists: not both. Obviously I can't stop you, but I expect you to be mature, honest, and vote properly. This also means that you should not go vote-whoring to get people not in the group to vote for you. If I find out any of you did this, and believe me I will find out, you will be disqualified and your opponent will win automatically, regardless of how the voting was going.
Hear that? Cheat on the voting, and you lose. So don't. Pretty easy.
What you should vote on:
You're not voting for whoever took the least damage in the fight, or anything like that. Even if a duelist got the shit kicked out of them, they could feasibly win in voting. If it were just a matter of health-to-health, I would have already closed the threads in question.
When you vote, I want you to read up on the fight: all the posts you can handle. I want you to vote for who you think fought best, made best use of their character, and who deserves to go on to the next round. The duelist with the most votes in each of the fights will advance to the next round.

I'll get the vote-posts up ASAP: should be within just a few minutes of this blog coming out. Again, if your duel is listed, but is actually closed, let me know.
And again, if I catch anyone cheating on voting, there will be hell. Real, actual hell. So don't make my job harder than it already is, and give me fair results, please.
