Yes, Congrats to Rob for taking Thantos to the tournament win!
I actually had the first pick of characters in the draft and took Star Warrior with the express intent to dethrone Thantos...but there is something about Thantos and this tournament. Star Warrior hit an early Nova Launch, but it wasn't enough to knock out the Evil Gamemaster. As the match progressed, there was a feel that Thantos just had it...only a matter of time and two Masterlocks later it was over...
Looking forward to next year and the chance to give it another go to knock off Thantos!!!
