    Default First Round Discussion Thread

    And I'm ready now.

    Heck of a Preliminary Round wasn't it? Bunch of the matches went down to the wire and many of them were decided by tie-breaking votes by the person who started it.

    Now that that's out of the way, we can kick off the First Round. The method of selection was once again by me drawing names out of the remarkable Satori-O-Matic and, as always, it wants me to remind you of how much it hates you all.

    So, without further ado, here's the First Round of the 2013 Character Tournament aka
    STRAWPOCALYPSE NOW






    Spoiler:

    01. Teach (94) vs. Iceburg & Tyrannosaurus (126)

    Hm, considering Drake's loss to Fred last year, I think Hancock can take him. Not without campaign help, though, since people were supporting Drake better this year. I might have to get back in the game...

    My picks:

    Hidden:
    1. Ice and Ty
    2. Undecided, but leaning toward Binami.
    3. Perona
    4. Shanks, unless Apoo's campaigns rock.
    5. Robin
    6. Kuzan
    7. Tough, but probably Kuma, since he didn't knock Tashigi out of the running. :P
    8. MEH
    9. Gatorbus
    10. Bon-chan~
    11. Galdino, all day, every day.
    12. Crocus
    13. Norland
    14. Laboon!
    15. Tough! Leaning more toward Iva, though.
    16. BOA FUCKING HANCOCK
    17. Chopper
    18. Tough call! I might have to let campaigns decide.
    19. WHY?! Given who he's up against, I'll have to side with Jinbe on this one. Sorry, Luffy.
    20.
    Love Tiger, but probably Smiley for Smiley.
    21.
    This choice is SUUUPER easy.
    22. Hattori, easy.
    23. Oh, you... :D
    Ace, of course.
    24. Tough! But not voting Buggy probably constitutes as blasphemy, so my hands are tied.
    25. Kishishishi!
    26. You know Venomous will bring the Mag campaigns! No contest.
    27. Tough! Maybe campaigns.
    28. Tom-san
    29. MEH
    30. Tough choice. Campaigns.
    31. Shakky
    32. Eh, campaigns, I guess.

    There's only a handful of matches I will definitely pick outright. I'm indifferent to so many of these. Should be a lot of close ones!

    Spoiler:

    01. Teach vs. Iceburg & Tyrannosaurus
    02. Bellamy vs. Borsalino
    03. Eustass Kid vs. Perona (don't really care for either character, will reward good campaigners.)
    04. Shanks vs. Apoo
    05. Nico Robin vs. Bartolomeo (I don't dislike Robin, but she doesn't have the same spice as Barto, though she's a great character. I'm sure she'll win the match anyway.)
    06. Arlong vs. Kuzan (this is the hardest match for me; I really love both characters. Arlong will have to win with campaigns.)
    07. Wiper vs. Bartolomew Kuma
    08. Donquixote DoFlamingo vs. Trafalgar Law (I kind of verge on disliking both characters, Law for being boring, and Doflamingo for being so hyped up by fanboys/girls pre-Dressrossa. Doflamingo has a much cooler design and less stupid/overpowered devil fruit so I'll go for him)
    09. Brownbeard vs. Fujitora (He's been an awesome character so far. Brownbeard, has too, but he doesn't make asteroids fall form the sky)
    10. Nami vs. Bon Kurei (Mr. 2 has already won, time for Nami to shine. Though I don't want her to win the whole thing haha.
    11. Bellemere vs. Mr. 3
    12. Vergo vs. Crocus
    13. Silvers Rayleigh vs. Norland
    14. Zeff vs. Laboon
    15. Whitebeard vs. Ivankov (It's always Whitebeard's age)
    16. X. Drake vs. Hancock
    17. Sanji vs. Chopper
    18. Hannyabal vs. Brook
    19. Luffy vs. Jinbe (ooh, this is a toughie.)
    20. Fisher Tiger vs. Smiley
    21. Franky vs. Usopp (two past winners, and two amazing characters. Franky has been more Super post-timeskip, though Usopp has done some cool stuff this arc.)
    22. Hattori vs. Monet (You know, I don't care at all for either character, probably won't vote haha.)
    23. Ace vs. Akainu (I would usually never vote for Akainu, but Ace's fanbase...)
    24. Dr. Hiriluk vs. Our Lord and Savior, Buggy the Clown (Goddamn Chopper had a great flashback haha. Time to keep Hiruluk's dream alive)
    25. Gekko Moriah vs. Kaku (For Beka)
    26. Kinemon vs Magellan (Much respect to Venomous Warden, but I think Kinemon has the potential to go really far and I'd love to be a part of it all the way)
    27. Crocodile vs. Smoker
    28. Zoro vs. Tom (I always vote for Tom with a Don)
    29. Enel vs. Cavendish (He's God)
    30. Garp vs. Dr. Kureha (Dr. Kureha reminds me of some nasty skimpy dressed old women I've met)
    31. Shakky vs. Caesar Clown
    32. Bepo vs. Gatz



    I really enjoy the character tournament.

    Holy Shiiiiiiiii.....





    Here's my list
    Spoiler:

    01. Teach vs. Iceburg & Tyrannosaurus (Iceburg has always been a favorite of mine and I don't care for BB. Plus Tyrannosaurus is awesome.)
    02. Bellamy vs. Borsalino
    03. Eustass Kid vs. Perona (Not a Perona fan and Kid has Magneto powers)
    04. Shanks vs. Apoo (It's Shanks for now but it could change)
    05. Nico Robin vs. Bartolomeo
    06. Arlong vs. Kuzan
    07. Wiper vs. Bartolomew Kuma (While I think Wiper is pretty cool, Kuma is one of the characters I want more backstory on since his role in the story has been very unique)
    08. Donquixote DoFlamingo vs. Trafalgar Law
    09. Brownbeard vs. Fujitora (I like his take on justice and he's just a great new character)
    10. Nami vs. Bon Kurei (I really like Nami and Bon already won)
    11. Bellemere vs. Mr. 3 (I'm a fan of strategic characters, Mr. 3 was always my favorite BW agent, other than Croc and Robin of course.)
    12. Vergo vs. Crocus
    13. Silvers Rayleigh vs. Norland
    14. Zeff vs. Laboon
    15. Whitebeard vs. Ivankov
    16. X. Drake vs. Hancock
    17. Sanji vs. Chopper (Like I said before I'm a fan of characters that use strategy. That's why Sanji's my favorite Strawhat.)
    18. Hannyabal vs. Brook
    19. Luffy vs. Jinbe
    20. Fisher Tiger vs. Smiley
    21. Franky vs. Usopp
    22. Hattori vs. Monet heheha
    23. Ace vs. Akainu
    24. Dr. Hiriluk vs. Our Lord and Savior, Buggy the Clown
    25. Gekko Moriah vs. Kaku
    26. Kinemon vs Magellan
    27. Crocodile vs. Smoker
    28. Zoro vs. Tom
    29. Ener vs. Cavendish
    30. Garp vs. Dr. Kureha
    31. Shakky vs. Caesar Clown
    32. Bepo vs. Gatz


    Wow I've never seen anything like this before. It's like every match is evenly matched.

    I don't even know for most of them.


    Let's do this!!!

    I wake up to find Inazuma didn't make it...and that one misclicked vote made that the case :(
    I like Apoo, but...eh OH WELL. Had fun with those campaigns. Thanks to anyone who did vote Inazuma

    ANYHOO FIRST ROUND

    I don't have preferences for most of these, so I'll do it the fun way and let campaigns swing me. CAMPAIGN AT ME, PEOPLES. Of course, I'll be doing my own too, although many my of my favourite characters are put up against characters I also really like and argh (I rather get the sense that Shakky is in trouble, and poor Crocus).

    And oho, matches 8 and 23... XD
