    Default Preliminary Rounds Discussion

    Hello, folks! Those nominations and the wait between them should have only whet your appetite for the good stuff, am I right?~

    This year, we're running quite a few less preliminary matches, with 14 instead of 20. There will still be 15 entrants in each match, though this year, the top 4 from each preliminary will make it to the First Round. And there will be only 4. Ties will be dealt with by severely beating the parties involved.

    Past voting rules apply, but to the new participants among us, you have multiple votes in the preliminaries! You can vote for one entrant, five entrants, eleven entrants, or fourteen! You just can't vote for all fifteen. Well, you can, but then your vote would be pointless, wouldn't you agree?

    Each match will have its poll open for one day and typically, one poll will be open at any given time. There might be some potential overlap, as the event staff can't always be on hand to perfectly time each match. In such an event that a match closes and there is an extended period between the close of that match and the start of the next, please be patient or lay blame on Robby, whichever coping method works best for you.

    The Preliminaries shall begin on Saturday, June 16th!

    And now we will announce the matches and their participants. As a reminder, Luffy, Franky, Usopp, Robin, Whitebeard, Awesome Octopus Fishman guy next to Jinbe on page 17 of chapter 624, Monkey & his Doma, and Satori are auto-passes to the First Round, and thus, will not appear in the Preliminary Round matches.

    And there you have it. This should give you all about a week to start making campaigns for your favorite entrants.~ Now please commence discussion in this thread. We want to hear your misgivings about how your favorite characters are unfairly locked in fateful combat with each other. Though, a little praise for the staff never hurt anybody.

    T-Bone and Hattori in the same round.
    I hope it'll turn out to be T-Bone and Hattori, not T-Bone vs. Hattori.

    Momonga is in, MOMONGA IS IN. Here's our chance Marines!

    Nice to see Sadi and Domino together (their campaigns pretty much ended up as the same one cover picture.) surprised to see Jango and Fullbody together. I thought Jango always did well by himself.

    Anyone know who these guys are?

    Itomimizu & Chuchun
    Ishley & Friends (the killfish quintuplets?)
    Izou
    Scopper Gyaban
    Happa-san
    Stainless
    Shachi & Penguin
    McGuy
    Rakuyou
    Bobbin
    Monkey and Doma (the WB crewmember?)

    Or are they just random chars who have been given names?
    Oh hey, I do videos on figures and manga and stuff: https://www.youtube.com/thatmanhismerch

    I only forgive you for not knowing Itomimizu & Chuchun, Happa-san, and Stainless. (I guess Izou and Rakuyou are ok too, and Scopper who was in Roger's crew and only got his name revealed in a databook)

    Bobbin appeared in the manga in the last couple months. But really, Shachi and Penguin? Doma and his monkey? I thought you followed this tournament!

    I hope there are some stylish mod interference and power abuse this year as well. You have good chances, Kitsune.

    And now to think how we can make Law not pass the preliminaries.

    It's Fullbody who didn't. And since they are now best friends forever and share their screentime, it was inevitable.

    Ishley and her friends are mermaids from the cafe. Scopper is the black ponytail guy from Roger's crew. Stainless is the fabulous french moustache vice-admiral. Shachi & Penguin are Law's crewmembers. Rakuyou is Newgate's division commander with dreadlocks and chains. Bobbin is Big Mom's crewmember in a mask.

    Ah I knew one of them was from Big mom's crew. Ishley was the one who got stolen by Caribou right? Scopper. Still don't remember him. WB's division commander and allies just blurred into one (aside from Ace, Jozu, Marco, Squadro and Vista) they weren't really memorable at all.

    While I agree with you that it will be entertaining, two mid-carders I've been meaning to push this year, The Faux Hats and Cindry, are going to get murdered.

    I fully intend to not let that happen though.

    Fox, I know you're an avid Shanks fan, but isn't giving him two different slots for maximizing his vote count a little unfair?

    Also, God that match #5 is killing me. So many good, memorable characters will be eliminated right there. It's so sad.

    Might as well finish up the list then. Izou is Whitebeard's crossdresser. Happa-san is the guy who gave Usopp onigiri and ship repair materials in Water 7. Thunder Lord McGuy and Doma are New World captains who fought with Whitebeard.
