Thread: 2016 APCT Round 1.5 Discussion Thread: Test Your Might!

    I think you guys are underestimating the champions a bit. Again, consider that a lot of the first-place characters in these past matches barely had campaigns, but just with the sheer power of their popularity were able to secure their entry into next round anyway. You really think the likes of Robin and Usopp won't do just as well, by default, as the likes of Sanji and Jinbe? XD

    And like I said, I don't disagree it's gimmicky, but like I said, so is the base concept of a character tournament in the first place. And all the things that have been made up in the past several years.
    I mean, I don't mind people disliking what happens, no one plan is going to be beloved by everyone and it's silly to think that will be the case. But if you're going to call it dumb as well as imply stupidity of the people behind it because of it being a gimmick in a tournament with a history of gimmicks, I'm going to want a bit more solid argument and reasoning behind it. Otherwise it just feels tinted with bias.

    Let's be honest: APCT exists only because of drama, memes and general atmosphere. No many people actively participate, but if it was another one "Yearly Best DC Character event. Spoiler: Batman wins", nobody would care at all. So, basically, what Noqanky said.

    Also it's not spite. That would be too harsh of a word and imply some ill feelings for character or their fans, and that would be silly and stupid.
    It's just competitiveness and desire too see unexpected memorable outcome. Somebody winning second time is just a bit boring, especially if MC.

    Oh goodness this is so true. I wonder how they would've done in the round 1 matches.

    I thought the single-vote preliminary rounds were a really neat idea and they worked out great with some fresh results; but I don't like this round 1,5. I can't really give a reason why, but the more I try to think of one the less I like this idea.

    I also agree with Kubihige about the chances of the past champions. If only 1 character would advance from each of these rounds then I don't think a single champion would make it, so luckily there are still 4 characters going through... but yeah, I don't know, I still don't like it. That's just my opinion though, and it seems that most of you guys do like it, so I'll just shut up now haha ^^

    It's cool that Gin gets another chance, but he doesn't stand a chance in that round.

    I await the day when mods will start a tournament without telling anyone as a sub-forum in the archives, and Blackbeard will win this because it's off-screen.

    Barto, Wiper, Yonji, Apoo. Only hard choice is in the first round between Barto and Luffy for me.

    Man, I would love to vote Hancock to give her another chance (and I think I'd vote her over anyone else in Rounds 3 and 4), but her being put in the same block as Robin? Ouch.

    MAtches 1 & 3 are easy, Barto and Usopp. That shouldn't surprise anyone that knows me as I'm a Usopp fan and always chosen him over others, followed closely by Barto, Crocodile (not in this round), Wicca, Whitebeard and Whitey Bay. (And damn it all, all three in a match against each other!!)

    Matches 2&4 are not so clear, have several faves that are equal in my fan-love so likely come down to see if anyone campaigns for them.

    Match #1
    Champion of 2014 - Bartholomeo

    Match #2

    Wiper
    Baby 5
    Champion of 2012 - Bon Kurei

    Match #3
    Champion of 2004 - Usopp


    Match #4
    Champion of 2010 - Edward Newgate
    Wicca
    Whitey Bay
