First, I want to say congratulations to the beautiful Petronas Towers. Totally deserving to be in the Final Round, and two of the most gorgeous towers ever built:

That is your opinion.

Chrysler and ESB are elegant, beautiful, and forever symbolize the skyscraper.

That is my opinion, and with Chrysler having won, I can safely assume others agree with it.

Congrats Chrysler.

So in the next Supertalls World Cup, will Chrysler even be allowed in, having won and everything?

Buildings being beautiful is not mutually exclusive, but some buildings are prettier than others. You have to deal with that instead of putting words in his mouth. He never called those buildings ugly. Voting against them is not the same as calling them ugly. It seems that you just can't handle defeat, huh?

I guess, for what has been arranged this competition - to win ESB or CB.

I'm sorry guys, but it is so...

sore losers are pretty annoying. My favorite didn't win either, so that means more people prefer a different building. Is that really something to get upset over? People having a different opinion is perfectly fine.

You're right. The admins on this site pre-organized the brackets so that the ESB and Chrysler buildings would have an easy path to the finals, and then whenever they were in trouble and may not win, tampered with the voting. In some cases even to the extent to make it look close just so people wouldn't suspect anything. And they did all this not for financial gain because they assume anonymity being that it's an online tournament, but instead so that two buildings could be finalists in an online skyscraper tournament. It's genius.

This is a hilarious post! I rarely compliment Yankee fans, better hope no one sees, can't ruin my reputation.

That's what I thought, but there are some people being just as unreasonable and ridiculous as you were pretending to be on this thread *cough* evrasia *cough*
