Loser battles will still happen, the order of fights is just changed so that the tournament can end sooner. After the tourny is over then we can get to the matches we want to see/haven't been done.

The Phoenix Opening: Round 1

Match 4: Nichaey Gearedwarm vs. Necksnapper Roughnessair

Rith: Welcome back, Iím Rith Rithdur and we are approaching the midway point in round 1 with this next match-up.

Stakud: It looks like weíre not wasting any time in starting match 4 with Nichaey Gearedwarm entering the arena!

Spoiler: Nichaey (click to show/hide)

Rith: Itís plain to see what Nichaeys strategy is looking at what heís brought to this fight, stop any attacks with that beautifully made shield and follow up with a devastating attack. The battle axe has not been that well represented so far in this tournament but I think Nichaey could show us what it is capable of here tonight. 

Stakud: We shall see, but look! Here comes Nichaeys opponent from the other side of the arena, itísÖ a copper colossus?

Rith: Thatís no copper colossus, thatís Necksnapper Roughnessair, covered from head to toe in thick copper armour!

Spoiler: Necksnapper (click to show/hide)

Stakud: By Armok youíre right. Look at that pudgy little bastard, he can barely walk! How is he supposed to fight wearing all that let alone break necks? Maybe if he fell on Nichaey.

Rith: It is true that this approach has not yet won a match-up but thereís a first for everything.

Stakud: If there was ever a match of complete polar opposites this is it, the light and fast Nichaey with the battle axe, the heavy defense tank Necksnapper with the war hammer, and there they go!

Rith: Nichaey charges forward like a dwarf to a beer barrel and Neckbreaker lumbers towards Nichaey like a zombie troll!

Stakud: Nichaey takes a swing and OH! Nichaeys axe connects with Necksnappers mid section and leaves a great big gash!

Rith: The force of the blow has sent Necksnapper flying backwards and oh dear, his entrails have shot out through the wound! Necksnapper is bowed over in pain, looking very sick.

Stakud: Vomit! I see vomit!

Rith: Congratulations, now back to the fight. Nichaey charges onward and hacks at Nechsnappers left arm. He give it a second hack and there goes the arm along with any chance Necksnapper has to win this fight. Nichaey, continuing the brutal assault gets into good rhythm attacking the limbs, but the damage is already done. There is the killing blow!

Stakud: Nichaey, with a clean and accurate slice has cloven Necksnapper body in two, wow.

Rith: Urist has got to be wondering heís going to have to do to beat this dwarf. Nichaey wins this fight with a truly flawless victory, Necksnapper wasnít even given a chance to get an attack or block in. Truly an amazing performance by Nichaey as he wins this round 1 fight to move on to the quarter-finals.

Stakud: You know what, Iím starting to get tired of these one sided fights. I want to see some brawling! I want to see two dwarves fighting tooth and nail, I want to see the winner have to pick up his limbs after the fight and walk out with them raised high above his head! PLEASE tell me we have a good matchup coming up?

Rith: Oh I think we are going to see some very good matchups coming up in the second half of this round, looking down the list I canít see any of these fights being boring. Kicking off the second half of Round One will be Geshud Rashilul vs. Nanothnir Shedimabod! Weíll be right back.

As it stands now, either Fireheart, Diego ďThe SmashaĒ, Urist McUrist or Nichaey will take the first spot in the finals.

I had a funny feeling something like that was going to happen.

I suppose there will be a competition for biggest loser, yes? Necksnapper's going to win that one.

I understood nothing, contributed nothing, but still got to win, so good game everybody else.

The funny thing is, Nichaey only got 2 points of experience in that entire fight. No experience in shield user at all, all it took was that first good hit. Weapons seem to be pretty overpowered even at 3x their real price. Hopefully the fights will last longer when the dwarves aren't slowed by armour.

Well I think my fight is going to be good.  We both have the same setup.  Weapon and Armour mixed.

This may be the most utterly awesome thing to ever grace Dwarf Fortress.
