indeed. That reminds me my first ever rival and myself never did finish any other matches.
My first tournament I had just come into RP's in 1996. I fought three opponents and finally in the last match vs a gaia member by the name of I_HATE_YOU_WITH_A_PASSION
He played the last hellfire demon. The Prized Fighter Inferno. I was the first to escape several of his trapping attacks and also the first to end up in a draw. We split the prize money as we both were rendered unconsious on the final match. We became friends instantly and all the way till 2008 fought several times but never finished any other fights. We retired roughly the same time. Then I came back.
