Thread: The first ever DOFLAMINGO INVITATIONALS!

  1. #1

    Default The first ever DOFLAMINGO INVITATIONALS!

    It's that time of year again, the annual Arlong Park character tournament! Madness, campaigns, fights to the death, winners, losers, art aplenty, surprises and twists, and thousands of Hattoris!

    This year however, we're doing things a little... differently. And you can thank Oda for that!

    Since Oda has graced us with so many wonderful new characters in such a short period of time, and the first ever real tournament in the series, Arlong Park is proud to introduce

    THE DOFLAMINGO INVITATIONAL!


    Inviting *only* characters introduced within the last year! (Between chapters 667 and 707.)

    FIFTY TWO competitors will enter this year's arena, in a massive battle royale, with a chance for the newest crazies to shine like the sparkling diamonds in the rough that they are, to determine...

    Who is the best new character?


    That's right, only new characters! (Sorry, no Luffy. Not even as "Lucy")

    The first round will feature 4 blocks with all your new favorites, thirteen gladiators at a time, competing for the favor of Doflamingo and a special mystery prize! Obviously that won't be the entire thing, but that IS the first round!

    How will eliminations work? Will there be more rounds? What happens with the four winners of those matches? What happens to the losers? All these questions will be answered, only for there to then be even more questions! I guarantee, it will be a wild ride!

    ALSO! As an added bonus! This year we are having an extra special super chocolatey fudge covered bonus set of filler matches that will feature non-One Piece characters in their own battle to dominance! Featuring favorites like Grinpatch, Dracon, Zabuza, Gerard, and Xiao-Mei the mini Panda! More details on that will come as we have them!

    Wait a minute, this new character thing is a side project, correct? The regular tourney will still be in effect, right?

    I figure the winners of this tourney will probably be seeded later on into the regular tourney. It's a nice way to allow newer characters to still have a shot. I like it.

    Oda's giving us a chance to do something really different and mix it up from what we've done for the last several years, so we're taking advantage of it. So many new people have been introduced in such a short time, it'd be a shame to have them all just lose immediately to an old timer like Makino or something.

    This is going to be different from past years, but you'll have fun with it, I promise.

    And its not just the Doflamingo Invitational. The Filler matches will have quite a bit to them this year as well.

    Nope. No "Lucy", no Bellamy, no Burgess. New characters from the past year only. We've already got the rosters ready, 52 contestants, just wanted you guys to have a chance to process the fact that we're doing something different from previous years first.

    Without Hattori to root for, I'm rather lost - and much easier to win over.
    This will be fun.

    I have no idea who those people are. I'm not in charge of the filler matches, you'll have to ask someone else.

    I think its a perfect excuse to make 52 *NEW* Hattoris.

    Or maybe Smileys.

    We have a lot planned for this tournament and we don't really want to engage in spoilers much. So asking about the future won't yield much in the way of answers I'm afraid.

    I assure you guys that it will be cool, though, so try to just go with the flow.

    In other news, go Ricky! I'm also a little surprised that nobody is trumpeting Fujitora yet.
