WWN Character Battle 2012 - SF1: Raine vs. Lin

Post by HPD » Fri Aug 24, 2012 6:57 am

So guys, we're nearly there. The semi-finals are already here. Will we finish before September comes around? Well, no. But that's only by a day or two by my calculations.

Anyways, we still have our last semi-finalist to pick. It's either going to be Mia or Sami. Follow the link and vote for either one for as long as the poll remains open.

But let's get on to picking our first finalist, shall we? It shouldn't surprise you that there are two candidates who qualify, and that it's up to you to pick one of them. I'll present you Raine and Lin! Both characters have done amazingly well so far. Raine made short work of two Mass Effect characters (Kelly Chambers and Samantha Traynor) before finishing off Lucca. Lin got here by a victory over Leona Heidern, a hard-fought battle with Samus and came out victorious against Ms. Fortune.

Have fun picking your finalist!

Ah, Raine Sage. Once the unofficial mascot of WWN during the Newbie era. Those were the times, man. You should've been there. But some of you are not, so hence this little introduction. We know Raine from Tales of Symphonia, the bestseller J-RPG originally released on the GameCube. Raine is the local teacher in a remote village and very knowledgeable on just about anything. There is but one thing she can't do: cook. No really, she's probably the worst cook in video game history! Later on, she becomes a playable character with a focus on healing and support magic.

Lin is the second-in-command of the 12th Battalion, nicknamed Brenner's Wolves (after commander Brenner). She is an apt tactician and logician and adds a more cynical point of view to Brenner's ideas on the goodness of humanity. She does respect the man a great deal, though. In-game, she's one of the stronger COs out there.

Huh. So Lin made a last-minute comeback and beat Raine by one point.

How the hell did an AW character end up in the finals of an AW community's character contest? DOES. NOT. COMPUTE.
