WWN Character Battle 2011 - Brackets + Predictions

Postby HPD » Sat Jun 11, 2011 8:24 am

Crappy image ahoy

Here are the brackets for the contest. It would be fun to see your predictions for the battles and the champion in this topic. You probably won't win anything besides bragging rights, but hey, it's fun, right?

In short: all top nominations made it in, those who were only mentioned once are seed 6 or 7. Seed 8 consists of the highest four that were mentioned more than once. The rest was straightforward to seed.

Drachma? I don't remember seeing him mentioned at all. Though admittedly, apart from Miror B, I can't recall much of the characters as a whole. Oh well, PREDICTIONS (Despite own opinions. Mostly.)

That was me. An odd first choice, I'll admit, but I'll stand by it because Drachma is just so awesome. All these years later, and I still love him.

plus y'know taking down eldrich abominations with the tiny Little Jack was just that cool.

If you want this done quickly, I'm going to have to sit out on account of being gone. But if you're still waiting when I get back I'll throw one together.

EDIT: Nope, I'm still too lazy to do a bracket.

I'm just sad cause after submitting all those Advance Wars characters, none of them got onto the list. (I didn't vote for Olaf) Kirby is awesome though, he beats up on King DeDeDe again, defeats an entire squad of bandit mice, and defeats some demon all because his cake was stolen. And never tell him the cake is a lie. Should you, I'm going to stand waaaaay over here.....

I, uhh, will start this in a couple of days. Don't want to wait too long since I'll be gone for some weeks from the 19th of July to somewhere mid-August. I want this finished before that.

But yeah, predictions are fun, so I'll give people some time to think about it.

My guess, for the record. I damn well hope a lot of these don't come to pass, but WWN is fairly predictable.

And damn, if I'd known that a #1 listed character would get an automatic pass then I'd have put Gabranth up there. There's nowhere near enough Afrikaaner in this battle.

Things just happened that way. Considering the amount of nominations, it wasn't really all that hard to imagine that 10 points would be enough to make it through the nominations list.

honestly if the points weren't weighted the way they were and thus all the nominations were equal, the vast majority of characters would have only had 1 point and there would only be 8 or so characters in the contest.

really the problem is that our game taste is all over the place, so 10 each wasn't enough for our nominations to have much common ground.
