WWN Character Battle 2012 - THE FINAL: Lin vs. Sami

So yeah, it's as many people feared in the semis: an AW vs. AW final. I honestly never expected this to happen, but I think it proves that though many people deny it, AW is still highly popular amongst our community.

You could see this battle as the 'old' AW games versus Days of Ruin. Sami and Lin personify both sides. I wonder who'll bring home the title.

(4) Lin

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin

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.

(2) Sami

Sami is a CO in the Orange Star army and has been around ever since the first Advance Wars game was released back in 2001. Her last appearance was in Dual Strike, after which the series got a reboot in Days of Ruin. In all games she appears in Sami specializes in infantry units. Her powers give these units more firepower, movement and even increased capture speed! While she's friendly and good-natured towards her allies, she's a fierce enemy who's not afraid to tell her enemies to piss off. Don't make her angry!

Also, she's supposedly dating Eagle. No one knows how serious their relationship is, however.

These are boring characters for a final, but Sami isn't actually mediocre so she gets the vote no doubt.

Drat, my usual approach of "who's showing their navel" is useless here.

Going with Lin. It's been a while since I've played either game so my exact memories of the characters are a bit hazy, but I think there's something about her cynicism that's entertaining, especially when she's snarky about it.

Sami, no doubt about it.

Lin, because she is an actual character and not a cardboard cutout.

They both have exposed midriff too, so Sami's only asset doesn't help her.

Treed, just have a laugh at the reasoning applied.

But yes, it turned into a Character Miss 2012 Election instead of a Character Battle. :lol:

8-10 for Sami with two days left! Will Sami take the title or will Lin make a sudden comeback?

I can't really vote against Sami now, can I? Not with the destruction I've wrought over the years with Victory March - it always was one of the most satisfying powers to use in AW2/DS.

I voted Sami because I can remember her theme.

AND IT'S OVER! With a final score of 10 to 12, Sami is now the official winner of the WWN Character Battle 2012, proving once and for all that the old AW games are still and will remain very close to all of us.

All hail Sami!

I hope you've all had fun with this contest! I certainly did. We'll probably be back next year with yet another contest. I don't really know what I'm going to do then, but we'll see. For now, thank you for voting and go check out the amazing games that were represented in this contest you didn't know about!

This topic will remain open for post-contest commentary but I'll archive it once interest seems to be gone.

Well, the participants aren't any better. :P

Sami's fine as a victor, if we look the other characters.
