Thread: Preliminary Round Discussion Thread

  1. #1

    Default Preliminary Round Discussion Thread

    The straws have been drawn and the table is finally set. Vergo looks on, while Fujitora tries his best to do the same. They meet a powerhouse lineup of Bon, Franky, Luffy, Robin, Usopp, and Whitebeard that have earned the right to skip the slaughterhouse of a round that's about to occur. In addition to these 8 titans of popularity, this tournament will feature an additional 210 characters. And they will collide for a preliminary round that will cover 14 bloody matches with only 4 out of the 15 advancing in each prelim. That's right, there will only be 4 advancing from each prelim and the other 11 will be eliminated until next year or worse.

    This is mostly standard procedure as you guys are used to it. Since 15 go in and 4 come out, we will be allowing multiple votes just like we have in the past. You can vote for any number of characters 1-15, but all votes must be cast at the same time. Once your vote is submitted, it is final and can not be changed or added to. You could even vote for all 15 characters if you really wanted to, but doing so would be a waste. The polls will also be open for 24 hours each, and in the event of a 4th place tie once time expires, it will be broken by an event mod who has withheld their vote.

    And without further ado, I present to you the matches. And in the department of redundancy department, Bon, Franky, Fujitora, Luffy, Robin, Usopp, Vergo, and Whitebeard have been deemed too awesome for this round, so we will not be seeing them until the next round. I also took the extra step of alphabetizing the individual matches after they were drawn this year so that they'll be easier for us to archive in the future.

    Aw geez... this really is going to be a blood bath. No matter what we will lose someone fun each prelim round. Let's see... 56 move on making it a total of 64 for Round 1. I'll need to figure out a way to best optimize my votes this round.

    Huh, perhaps I'm not reading the list carefully, but it seems like no one group is insanely difficult for popular characters. If anything we'll have a bunch fighting for third and fourth in each preliminary.

    The rosters are weighted by previous performance, which helps avoid, say, three strawhats appearing in one prelim. (ANd obviously previous champs are weighted out of the prelim entirely.) It also helps us keep track of previous participants, and decide which characters get through that weren't nominated to fill in gaps after the nomination process.

    So, all votes in the preliminary DO matter... even if the contestant doesn't get into the top 4, it may affect their chances next year.

    Good. I'm just about finished with all my new campaigns. Was a rough week with Gimp but not nearly as exhausting as last year's work.

    Let's see. Otohime's big threats are Dragon, Hattori, Mihawk, Perona, and Smiley. Gonna be a tough one.

    Match 12 is full of some awesome.

    Monet's only powerhouse opponent is Garp so I'll be able to reserve my campaigns until later.
