Achilles was gonna be hard to beat, for me, from the get go and it rang true. I have to give him my nod. I love just about every match-up and that final has me drooling.

Kpro is a tough tough second, though.

It's a forum based game. In order to play, you have to pretty much be a regular on the forums. Various members host these on random occasions. This one has been completed already.
