Thread: 2014 APCT First Round: The Red Wedding Discussion Thread.

  1. #1

    Default 2014 APCT First Round: The Red Wedding Discussion Thread.

    And the picks are in! 12 groups of 16 characters have aligned to kick off this year's character tournament. Unlike previous years, this draw wasn't weighted to keep the powerhouses spread out, so no character was safe going into this round without an autopass. In commemoration of the new draw, the "preliminary" tag has been discarded this year.

    But fear not! Not just one, but FOUR characters will advance from every match. Because of this, multiple votes will be permitted throughout the round (but once you hit the vote button it's final and there's no going back). Also, any ties that may occur in this tournament will be broken by the event staff. Tying for 4th will not guarantee that a character will be able to move on.

    Piece of cake, right? So without further ado, we present to you... the matchups!

    The intensity just seems to keep building and building. And believe me, you're definitely not going to want to miss the end of the round. The event staff took one look at what popped out and was inspired to dub it the George R.R. Martin Wedding Round, or rather we present to you...

    My prediction for the final:

    Pagaya vs Seņor Pink

    Seņor Pink beats Bon Kurei in the semis, finally taking his place as the manliest character in OP, and Pagaya destroys The Hiking Bear.

    Not sure who will win, but itīs a match up that will dignify the final.

    This year will finally be Garp's year. The greatest grandfather in the world will crush the competition with his fist of love.

    You all need to vote for him! But only if you want to, of course.

    I've never campaigned before, how am I doing?

    I will cheer for Brook all the way, but I fear he's been too absent from the series for a win... /cries

    Looking forwards to some interesting match ups though!

    I will give this prediction proper respect, as all opinions deserve acknowledgement. Even if they're unfortunately incorrect and misinformed.

    As always, first and foremost, my votes will go to Usopp-sama.
    I will vote for certain others, as long as they do not come up versus God Usopp.

    Those certain others I always vote for -as long as they don't run against Usopp or each other(and make me choose between them)=
    Garp, Hattori, Whitey Bay, Shakky and Yasopp

    All others are case by case -or should I say campaign vs. campaign- voting.

    Diamante will be taking home the crown this year, that should be obvious.

    The Hero of the Colosseum will also claim the title of King of Tourney Violence.

    Victory Flags will not be an issue.

    So hey I'm pretty excited since this is my first tournament, but how does this work exactly? We campaign for our nominations, I think, then everyone votes?

    Every match will have a thread with a poll where you can vote for whomever. People will campaign in the match thread. So voting and campaigning go in parallel.

    Oooh I see. Generally how many characters are placed into each poll?

    It starts with larger fields and then comes down to one on ones.

    Typically the First Round has very large numbers of characters with the top few passing.

    In the past few years there have been tag team matches to reduce the number of rounds, ie 2v2 ...

    You'll have to wait to see exactly how it'll work out this year ​unless someone tells you.
