Okay, per Justin's suggestion I've started this thread for us to keep track of our previous threads. If we want to use PerCo's thread at the bottom there to organize matches, I'm down, otherwise we can do it here or on a thread-by-thread basis. I figure this would be a good place to keep track of statistics of any games played, though. I'll keep an eye on it, just upload a replay and state which match you played and who won (I'll browse the replays if I can, but summaries would help).
Aequinox did a great job with his format in Round 5, so I'll stick to it so that everything is nice and organized. Remember that this is all for fun and to learn, so please keep the flaming to a minimum. This thread is open to people of all skill levels, so if you want to convince others that your opinions are valid, you should have good explanations.

Forumers are given a choice of four draft pools. There is a ~48 hour voting period to chose the Draft Pool for this round. Each forumer is allowed up to 1 vote each for their first and second choices. All votes will be counted equally, so it doesn't matter which one is your first pick. You can vote for only one if you want. I'll tie-break in the unlikely event of a tie. Voting will end in about 48 hours at roughly 07:01 UTC (GMT) aka 00:01 PDT (PST, Los Angeles) on Sept. 15. Turn 0 will end early if there are enough votes in 24 hours.
The thread number is 38568. Forumers get first ban and first pick.
