    Default 2014 APCT Fourth Round: The Eighth Finals Discussion Thread

    So here we go. Four former champions are out, along with such a collection of long-time fan favourites as Urouge, Jabra and Zoro. Now the field is tightening, and we're bound to see more upsets (maybe more than Usopp losing to Zeff).

    Eight matches, eight losers, eight winners set to contest to be the eighth champion, it's ... The AP Character Tournament Fourth Round: The Eighth Finals!


    Anyway, I'm no good at making things exciting, so I'll just hand over to Gatz here. Don't worry, I'll make sure he's kind of unbiased.





    I have the matchups for the next round right here. But! Before that, let's hear from the losers from last round!










    Gedatsu: Mmm ... !!

    Urouge: *grin*

    Cavendish: Zzzzzzzzzz

    What the hell! they're not saying anything. Okay, moving on, the next round's matchups!

    In the first, it's a duel between veteran pirates! These tough old guys have lost a lot of flesh, but don't think too light of them! It's an old favourite against the upset of the year!
    Spoiler:
    Brook vs Zeff!!


    Then in a duel of weirdness, that guy who I'm pretty sure is no longer human clashes with the guy who has always been above human! It's true pervert versus the true champion! It's ...
    Spoiler:

    *ulp* Did anyone else see that? ... No? Err, right, the second match.
    Spoiler:
    Franky vs Satori!!


    In the third match, this year's number one super rookie takes on the villain of the age! In a royal duel, it's the King of Birds and the King of Trolls!
    Spoiler:
    Doflamingo vs Bartolomeo!!


    Then we light up the streets as revolutionaries go head to head! A match not to be missed, it's
    Spoiler:
    Sabo vs Robin!!


    In the fifth match, two well-loved antagonists go ... not quite one-to-one! It's
    Spoiler:
    Enel vs Moriah & Aphelandra!!


    Then comes the duel of eternal cool guy and his fiery, overly passionate ally! It's the guy who seems to always need some rescuing against the guy whop seems to always need to rescue people! The sixth match is
    Spoiler:
    Law vs Sanji!!


    Match seven is pits an old favourite against the second of this year's super rookies! A match to test any animal lover, I give you
    Spoiler:
    Crocodile vs Koala


    And in the last match of the round, it's a rematch from last year! The road to the sun is a rocky one indeed; we finish with
    Spoiler:
    Luffy vs Jinbe!!


    And those are the matchups! I'm fully supporting K--












    Thanks Gatz.

    Doflamingo versus Bartolomeo. Nooooooo!!!!

    My Picks

    Match 1: Brook vs Zeff
    - All aboard the flash back character train.
    Match 2: Franky vs Satori
    - Franky is amazing. Would vote Satori if it were any other character.
    Match 3: Doflamingo vs Bartolomeo
    - Oh my god. Why AP, this is what I wanted the finals to be.
    Match 4: Sabo vs Robin
    - I hate Sabo, but Robin has been kind meh lately and she has already won.
    Match 5: Enel vs Moriah & Aphelandra
    Moriah, just because.
    Match 6: Law vs Sanji
    - I prefer Law. Both are pretty meh.
    Match 7: Crocodile vs Koala
    Croco's cool and I can't buy into the Koala Hype.
    Match 8: Luffy vs Jinbe
    Luffy has already won, so......

    Match 3: Doflamingo vs Bartolomeo

    Tom was so close. So close. Either way, a fair congrats to the Law camp. Now let's see....

    Match 1: Brook vs Zeff
    Want to see how far Brook can go, sorry Zeff.

    Match 2: Franky vs Satori
    Lol, who needs votes when you're a ball priest? Shouldn't I be upset Cabbage is gone from the list? Nah, we haven't seen the last of him. Satori for the lulz.

    Match 3: Doflamingo vs Bartolomeo
    This will be a tough match. Barty all the way, there's no stopping his hype train this year.

    Match 4: Sabo vs Robin
    Fufufufufu

    Match 5: Enel vs Moriah & Aphelandra
    Again, I really am sorry Aphelandra.

    Match 6: Law vs Sanji
    Sanji made it over Bellemere, but can he take down the Lawfare? I feel bad for Kishido.

    Match 7: Crocodile vs Koala
    Literally up to campaigns.

    Match 8: Luffy vs Jinbe
    A rubbery rematch, it seems. Too bad there's no Dryish this year to break the tie......arrgh, this could be super intense.

    Well then...

    Match 1: Brook vs Zeff
    Honestly can't decide. A favorite strawhat VS the surprise of the year? I'll let the campaigns sway me.

    Match 2: Franky vs Satori (totally Satori )
    Voting against Franky, for REVENGE

    Match 3: Doflamingo vs Bartolomeo
    I love them both, but I think Barto has a better chance should he go up towards the big times. And I'd take Barto any day above a strawhat in the tournaments.

    Match 4: Sabo vs Robin
    Can't decide here either

    Match 5: Enel vs Moriah & Aphelandra
    AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHUUUUUUUUUUUUU UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Match 6: Law vs Sanji
    Sorry Sanji, but you've been ruined since the time skip

    Match 7: Crocodile vs Koala
    Nostalgic old-timer VS popular of the moment? I'm looking forward to this.

    Match 8: Luffy vs Jinbe
    Sorry Jinbe, you had your time last year, no matter how much I'm worried about Luffy taking a boring victory (I put my faith in you, Barto!)

    Overall, my long-time picks would probably be Law, Enel, Moriaphelandra and Barto.

    My picks:

    Spoiler:
    Match 1: Brook vs Zeff (Zeff is great and all, but he's got a little too much meat on his bones, probably from all that delicious spicy food.)
    Match 2: Franky vs Satori (Hohohohoho)
    Match 3: Doflamingo vs Bartolomeo (I just identify with love him so much. Too much.)
    Match 4: Sabo vs Robin (Toss up.)
    Match 5: Enel vs Moriah & Aphelandra (As a villain, I wasn't really in love with Enel. Moriah at least gave me a few good laughs.)
    Match 6: Law vs Sanji (Gentlemen Lady Lovers unite!)
    Match 7: Crocodile vs Koala (Another toss up. I'm leaning Croc, though.)
    Match 8: Luffy vs Jinbe (And another. I love both of these characters so much!)


    But, as always, I'm at the mercy of the campaigns. I can always be swayed!

    Wow... really??
    The match between Cavendish and Satori was actually a trap?
    It's sad cuz Cavendish will probably never get a year like this again :(

    Enel
    Koala
    And Zeff because he bested the great Usopp.

    They have my undying support. Everyone else I'll vote on campaigns.

    The poll was correct, it was the match title and image that were incorrect. Since The Cabbage Merchant isn't a One Piece character, he can't actually win an APCT match.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    I'm kind of relieved that my accidental vote for Law wasn't decisive. I'm sad for Tom, but in the end I don't want either of them to win the tournament.
