Ladies(?) and Gentlemen, the results are in and tallied, so without further ado we bring you the results of the August CBUB Monthly Challenge:

THIRD PLACE (as there were only three) up with the score of 3.5
ThePhenomenalOne

SECOND PLACE with a score of 3.5
Bigballerju

And the FIRST PLACE WINNER with a total score of 3.67 is
thetrekker with Saxton Hale vs. Beast

Here's what the Judges thought of his setup:

Ruinus
Saxton Hale vs. Beast
4 out of 5
I don't know who that Saxton guy is, but the French woman joke actually made me laugh. The divorce was pretty left field, but I suppose there needed to be one way to revert him to his beast form.

Me: AKA - Simon Cowell
3 out of 5
The funniest part was when he broke the fourth wall to explain why he couldn’t give background on Saxton. I chuckled. 3 out of 5

Culwych
4 out of 5
Lol for 3 entries only - but still better than it could have been.

Congratulations trekker, your match is going in the Outstanding Match Ups thread and your name is going in the CBUB Hall of Fame as writer of the Month. Outstanding job.

Oh and I’m sorry for those that didn’t get through. Not enough judges judged for them to count.

Heh, Pymp's entry didn't get in on time after all.

Congrats, trekker! Well deserved. I had a feeling you might take this one.

As for next month, may God rest your soul. :P

Thanks to everyone who participated in the tournament. Without you guys, we would have had no contest. I was honestly biting my nails because I feared we were all so close and that it could have been anyone's game.

Ruinus- Thanks for the feedback. I'd been waiting for a good year to find a good place to place a prenup sort of joke and the turning him back into the Beast bit felt to good to pass up.

Treach- Ironically, if I was over the limit, that line was first on the chopping block.

Culwych- Erm thanks?

Again, thanks to everyone who participated and especially those who commented on my match when it was out there. That's always the favorite part of my experience, people talking about the set-up I try to bring to life. This has been a great comeback tour so far and I can't wait to be demolished by writers infinitely greater than me.

Can't have a Contest of Champions without the Champions. Challenge on hold indefinitely as we wait on champions.

Culwych- Erm thanks?


Hey Trekker, really sorry that was all there was - I did mean to go back and put proper comments in but life got in the way as usual lol. An excellent setup even though I don't really know Saxon. I will say that the main strength in your fight is the dialogue and tone of the story - hilarious. Congratulations and I'm looking forward to your next entry!

I noticed that Fox hasn't put up this tourney's final results on the homepage yet. Has he been e-mailed yet?

He has not.

Do you guys want to continue these? My time to participate or even post these is very very very few and far between, I'm wondering if you guys even want to continue this? My Contest of Champions didn't work due to the previous contestants disappearing, so I'm a bit saddened. What are some things you guys want to see on CBUB. Any types of things like this that could improve or be fun.

The lack of responses as opposed to the amount of views is a bit disconcerting.

I say continue, who past monthly champions will show up. If they don't perhaps that month's 2nd or 3rd place contestant can stand in, if the 1st is no where to be found or not interested.

If there is going to be another one, I'll be a part of it(unless it's a champions only edition) and I might be able to talk some others into it as well.

Yeah, the lower participation is probably partially my fault. The first champion and a moderator, and I haven't even participated since the first.

I'd say let the challenges continue. The other judges were doing just fine running things in treach's absence, and a mod or another admin can be PM'd to set up challenge topics here.

3 judges should be enough. Just have the monthly winner rotate in as judge so one person can't go on a winning streak.

Kay, I'll try to get September up soon then. Ruinus and Culwych are in charge of voting, I'd like one of the previous winners to be a judge also.
