Serious props to everyone who participated and TOMI who ran the whole thing. I’m pretty sure at least 5 Editors become Moderators during this contest so congrats to them too.

Can we get a regular season, two conferences and playoffs? Idk if that would be too hard to coordinate but it would be dope af. Anyway, congrats to Scope and thanks Tomi for making this another great reason to visit the forums more often.
