You know, I've always considered it a contradiction of my existence that

Floating tables are good, as long as you can keep the battles close 
enough.  If there are two different fights going on at the same time,

I know this goes against the spirit of GZG in a big way, but maybe 
there should be some sort of official ruling as to what a 'tournament'
