Hello everyone! Back for more, are ya?
Spring time 2012 bringing you the end of the world One Piece tournament!
I'm opening this thread up to call out for nominations for this years tournament. This year the tourney number allowance is a bit smaller that last year, with only 218, with 8 of those being auto passes for character who have certainly deserve it... more or less!
We will also be combining certain characters into duo's or teams so don't be surprised when the preliminaries come out and you see some of the nominations combined. This is to include more characters while taking up less spots and/or to give them a better chance. When it comes to nominating groupings/pairings, as long as it's supported by the manga by way of appearance, meaning they're usually always seen together "Square Sisters", "Johnny and Yosaku", "Dorry and Brogy", then you are free to nominate them together. Just use your common sense and past tournaments as an example. If you're not sure, go ahead and nominate as you wish, and we'll correct you.
For the next week or two, we'll be taking nominations, so start nominating your favorite characters, or characters you want to be in the tourney that you think others might not name. We'll only except one nomination per person and a character only needs one nomination to be considered.
Once that's over, we'll weight characters based on former tournament rankings, create the preliminary matches and start our first round!
ONE NOMINATION PER PERSON.
