Another year, another Tournament enters its final stages.
I used a modified Doolittle system to determine the draw. I have an atlas (several really) but don't want to tear it or mark it up so I'm going to spin a globe, close my eyes, and put my finger on the globe when I hear it stop. The character whose name is closest to the location my finger is resting on when it stops moving is the pick. A place that is named C or D would be Carrot. A or B would be Bellemere. M, N, or O could be either Nekomamushi or Nami so I'll take the first two letters in that case. Per Doolittle rules, no visiting the same country twice and I went again if we landed in the ocean.
Spin, world, spin.
! First stop, Magdagachi, Russia. Next stop, Birjand, Iran.
! >! First match, Nami vs. Bellemere.
! Next spins, Teresina, Brazil. Jidda, Saudi Arabia.
! >! Second match, Sanji vs. Jinbe
! This was pretty rough on this poor globe by the way; it's older than most of the people on the forum. Probably by a good decade or more.
! Entirely too many ocean landings later, we finally hit Coatzacoalcos, Mexico. Lagos, Nigeria.
! >! Third match, Carrot vs. Koala
! Last matchup was by default, but just for the sake of completing things, I went and finished things out: Cordova, Alaska and Maracaibo, Venezuela.
! >! Nekomamushi vs Ryuunosuke
