Nightfire squanders HUGE lead, tournament wide open again!

After 15 of 18 Rounds

9.0/15 -- CM11 Nightfire
8.5/15 -- CM11 Nazgul
8.5/15 -- CM11 Incubus II
8.0/15 -- CM11 Fear II
7.5/15 -- CM11 Conqueror
7.5/15 -- CM11 Inferno
7.0/15 -- CM11 Aiglos II
7.0/15 -- CM11 Archangel
6.0/15 -- CM11 Thingol
6.0/15 -- CM11 Hector

Nightfire was at 8.5/10 and a MASSIVE 3 point lead. After doing no wrong in the first 10 rounds, it could do no right in the next 5, securing only half a point! The top seeds, Aiglos II and Archangel seem to be out of it. What will happen at the end?

Quick update.

Hoping to get this started within the next week. I've struggled to make a proper tournament book for this one. It's taken a lot more time than I hoped it would.
