Gronk Affair vs. Outlaw - Bolt-01 Cup - Group 3 Game 4
« on: 22 September, 2021, 06:32:02 AM »
A tie in one of the opening games of Group 3 means that there is a lot to play for still and this could well become the most interesting Group. We will know more at the end of the match ups.

All you need to worry about which is your favourite between:

The Gronk Affair - more info

Vs

Outlaw - more info

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite of these two stories at the beginning of your post (or use Bold tags so I can spot it easily) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Saturday 25th September and the winner (I’ll count up who gets the most votes basically) gets 3 points towards qualifying… huh…

… there’s a spreadsheet to make following easier… if you fancy. If not, don’t worry just VOTE!!!!

I’ve tried to explain the finals here.

What on Earth is ALL of this?

Why on Tharg’s Earth head are we doing this?

Any questions, just ask as ever - and have FUN!

Oh and my ‘More info’ links… well I don’t say how much more and they get pretty wonky at times!

This is a difficult one but I will go with Outlaw

Outlaw was probably the third Stront story I read - after the Moses Quest Quest (I know that isn't what it's called, but it'll always be that to me) and The Killing.  And thus it was my introduction (not necessarily in any particular order) to members of the Stix clan, the Gronk, NBK, Middenface, a member of the Fuzz clan, etc.  So Outlaw!

Just today to go and while there seems to be a clear leader its not going to take many votes to swing this one so the result isn't as expected when I count up this morning.

And it will be no surprise to anyone who has seen my comments on Outlaw to know I could be the start of any swing back as I'm no fan of the strip and and love the other so this one is a clear win (well for me) for

The Gronk Affair

VOTING CLOSED

Them gronks they can't catch an even break can they. Fighting so hard to qualify, then battling Schicklegruber to a stand still, but only getting the draw. Now against the spralling Outlaw the story put up a good fight... but again nothing as

Outlaw

Takes this and sets up a fascinating final round of matches.

Group 3 going into the final round of matches

                                        Points   Votes Diff
Outlaw                                6              12
Schicklegruber Grab         4                2
Gronk Affair                       1               -3
The Son                              0                -11
