americandingbat answered this one...
And the bolded names in The Vagabond's ranking thread list indicate "Active Fighters", if I am not mistaken.
Could we get clarification on that, Vagabond?
Schro Dog: Definitely a consideration but if that occurs the tournament may never end and we would bleed into the next one...it is possible.
Though what an epic process it would be.
I think for now we'll keep it as is as I really don't think that any more ranked Fighters will join and thusly bump other ranked Fighters and as
well the new unranked's will likely shuffle with others as not all of them will understand the required dedication.
Edit to Add: Also, the current format is designed to keep the first rounds at a managable pace (where the top eight get a bye).
16 debates in the first round is a huge undertaking for the judges and would take forever to get through...
