My prediction is ............. The trial accounts will win. Although I have lost interest in who wins the election I was still interested in the method, therefore I watched the final round of voting last night and my observations follow. Early on Esca forged ahead and established a lead of around 10, this lead was maintained for some time until the flow slackened around 8.30ish. Once again a steady flow of dubious chars began, some with basic clothes/equipment, some quite obviously 'young' because they still bore the tag. I know Esca himself noted this because I heard him remark that voting age should be restricted and that 'young' were about. From this time on the gap closed and was then reversed until at close Alaster held a lead of around 14. Now I was not able to watch the last round so I know not what the figures were but if they were similar the whole thing has been made a mockery by a few. I know it was remarked that the manipulated vote at the last round prob made no difference because the lead was overwhelming but if last nights showing was the norm in this case it most certainly has. If Alaster has won and not by the same overwhelming amount the young/newbie vote will have made the difference. I hold no brief for either candidate, neither was my choice, I oppose Esca, as a traditionalist, I prefer Sosaria as an entity not a collection of parts. Nor will I vote for someone with a nappy fixation. I must say of the 2 Esca mounted a most impressive campaign and for it probably deserved to win. I only post because to me at least it is unjust if he has lost because of an exploit. To have all that effort wasted, not because it was outshone but by the manipulations of a pathetic few, is unsatisfactory. I know and realise this is just a game but I find it terribly sad that within it some find it necessary to act in this manner. Tis a cruel world.
