Thread: Preliminary Round Discussion

  1. #1

    Default Preliminary Round Discussion

    It's been a long couple of weeks since the announcement video was posted, but things are about to get crazy. I hope you've all taken the time to prepare for this.

    As previously stated, this preliminary round will cover 32 matches of 10 characters each. Once each match is over, the top 4 vote getters will secure a spot for the tournament in May, while the other 6 will be left behind. We will also be having one event mod refrain from voting in every preliminary match. That way, if a tie occurs, his or her vote will act as the tiebreaker. Therefore, there is absolutely no reason for anyone to vote for a tie in this round.

    Some very similar characters to the story have been grouped together. Other nameless characters have been "dubbed" names by the tournament staff so that they could participate. Those nameless characters can be recognized by the quotations around their names. In every case, portraits of each contestant will be included in their matches when they begin. That way, everyone will know who is who.

    Small AF joke:
    Due to popular demand, the Straw Hats have been barred from entering the tournament this year. There are several reasons for this, including the fact that they've won every tournament so far, massive complaints during the final rounds last year, and many other complaints about a main character bias. This way, the tournament can be more "fair" to the rest of the participants. Similarly, we've also removed Portas D. Ace from the list of characters. This decision was made due to the emotion surrounding his death, and to the rampant hate of his character by several members of this forum. We're avoiding the inevitable massive flame war that would otherwise take center stage for his first serious match. In our discussions a few months ago, we were still against the idea. However, after witnessing the discussion in these threads the past few weeks, we've changed our minds. Nobody really cared for the Strawhats in the Omake match (in which everyone got their fair share of the crew), anyway. We realize that some of you will not like these decisions, but tough shit. Deal with it.

    But wait, in order to make it up to their fans, you're going to love the replacements that we've come up with! In our attempt to give the missing characters adequate representation, we've decided to include several characters that Oda, himself, has designed which lie outside of the scope of the One Piece manga! These awesome bonus characters have been added to the roster this year:
    Galley (Romance Dawn 1)
    Silk (Romance Dawn 1)
    Spiel (Romance Dawn 2)
    Anne (Romance Dawn 2)
    Balloon (Romance Dawn 2)
    Daddy Masterson (OP Loguetown)
    Carol Masterson (OP Loguetown)
    Ganzack (OP Defeat the Pirate Ganzack)
    Head Dragon (OP Defeat the Pirate Ganzack)
    Scarlett (Strong World)

    It appears there were some mistakes in the this post I made which spanned through April 1st. My apologies for the errors. The corrections were made now, so it should be 100% accurate.

    Since he was the champion of the last character tournament, Luffy will get a free pass through the preliminary round. He was drawn to be included in preliminary match #29, so that match will actually only contain 9 characters who will battle for only 3 spots. All the participants of last year's tournament will appear in the preliminaries, with no exceptions.

    Now then, without further ado, I present to you the preliminary matchups (in chronological order):

    The preliminary matches will be setup with multiple votes, so you'll be able to vote for as many or as few of the 10 names as you wish. Remember when you vote that only the top 4 from each match will move on. Voting on all 10, for example, would be the equivalent of totally wasting your vote.

    The first preliminary match will start in 2 days.

    holy fuck finally. Shame about the strawhats, I'd like to think the forum has learnt from last year and that there'd be several amusing beatdowns. Plus I would have supported a few of them.

    COBY AND VIVI WILL GO TOGETHER!!!

    Hell no XD Never liked Enel, I'm rooting for Shiryuu >_> Just not too sure how he's going to stand against Enel, Aokiji, and Marco, especially Enel and Marco DX I've been looking foward to epic campaigns for him.
