Two rounds down into the TA Battle Royale and, so far, the tournament has stirred a lot of debate and controversy. When it's all said and done, a winner will be crowned, but the debate might rage on. We've got a foursome of matches in Round 3 here, before the semi-finals kick off later in the week. Let's recap the eight bouts from Round 2.

- Marcus Fenix saws The Lone Wanderer with 60.5% of the vote -- Most votes with 2,231
- Isaac Clarke tears apart Bayonetta with 55.9% of the vote
- Lara Croft out-duels Captain Price with 53.8% of the vote -- Narrowest victory

- John Marston dead-eyes Adam Jensen with 56.7% of the vote
- The Dragonborn fus-ro-dahs Sam Fisher with 57.7% of the vote
- Commander Shepard defeats Agent 47 with 67.2% of the vote

Overall it was a closer round than the one previous, with the average margin of victory coming in at 60.8%, compared to 65.1% in Round 1. The matchups are only going to get more narrow, we think. Let's look ahead with these visuals brought to us again by Nighthawk205.
