Douche is probably never going to post the results for the final rounds, but Not Sure won. A lot.


  • The Week 7 Challenge, the Castle of Dragon speedrun, frustrated the hell out of many partipants. Complaints were lodged that the game was too awful and participants demanded a new game. These complaints were ignored. This challenge was devised by Syd.
  • Although it is commonly misconceived that NotSure won, this is untrue. It was later discovered that he is a robot, and he was disqualified from the competition. For his bravery in fending off the laser attack that accompanied enraging a robot, FNJ was awarded the title, despite not competing after the first round.
