Elections 2008
It's the end of the line.

This week we saw Barack Obama claim victory in a hard-fought election. Now who will emulate him? Will it be Rye and Avalanche? Or will theundeadhero and his Shinra party emerge victorious?

After weeks of campaigning, we reach the end of our road. It's time.

I'll update this as often as I did the tasks thread, ie, once every 5-60 minutes. The more you post, the more it'll make me want to update! Obviously I'll be doing this in reverse order because it's no fun if you start with the Presidency!

Remember - THE PARTY WITH THE MOST VOTES IS THE ONE THAT WINS. ;) In the event of a tie, it is the party with the most categories won.

So uh...shake your money makers! First up, we've got The World is Square...And Enix. Flying Mullet takes on qwertyxsora. Who do you think will win? Who do you want to win?

Gen Squen!

A battle for control of the forums you're too scared to go in. Who is the victor? Well I can tell you it's

Flying Mullet

Flying Mullet....................11

First blood: Avalanche! Yeah it was very, very, close, but Mullet has just managed to shade it. A blow for Shinra, the southern forums are their heartland. Still, I'm sure they'll be able to hold onto The Smell of Fear. Right? ...right? Well it's up next, when Aerith's Knight duels with Laddy.

Running count:
Avalanche: 11, 1 category
Shinra: 10

11-07-2008, 07:15 PM
It's ok shinra, we can manage. Go AK!

11-07-2008, 07:19 PM
I already said, the only true winner is Mittopotahis.

I already said, the only true winner is Mittopotahis.

One time I agree with you my friend.

Whoever wins should be treated by Shinra to the restaurant of their collective choice.

...what, you thought I was done with that?

The Smell of Fear

Shinra were hoping for a strong showing here, and well...

Aerith's Knight

Aerith's Knight...................12

Another close victory, but this time the result is reversed. And now it's all square between the two. Can Aerith's Knight take another FF forum, as him and Fate Fatale square off for control of the Quickening? You're about to find out, folks.

Running count:
Shinra: 22, 1 category
Avalanche: 20, 1 category

Aerith's Knight

Aerith's Knight...................11
Fate Fatale.......................10

Good. Gravy. You can clearly see how this thing is going down to the wire here folks. Aerith's Knight scoops the double! Last Final Fantasy section, Nerds in Paradise, coming up, and Shinra will hope to finish well before entering the Avalanche heartland. Can their candidate, qwertyxsora, overcome his disappointment of losing to Flying Mullet to claim victory over Rantzien...?

Avalanche: 30, 1 category

Nerds in Paradise

Both of these men were, in the eyes of your election Booth, strong contenders in the primaries. However, both fell short. Let's see what they've done here.



Rantzien's victory has swung the balance firmly into the hands of Avalanche. Although they have both won two forums, Avalanche has come out of Shinra's home turf on top. As we move out of the FF forums, onto Reference, can potential first lady I'm my own MILF defeat his wife's rival, Lekana?

Running count:
Avalanche: 43, 2 categories
Shinra: 41, 2 categories

Yep, it's that woman. She has just reduced Avalanche's impressive lead to nothing! Wow! This is ridiculously close. Seriously what the hell EoFF! :laugh: Anyway, next up, we have the first clash for the presidential wannabes, Rye and theundeadhero, as they duke it out for control of Staff.

Shinra: 55, 3 categories
Avalanche: 50, 2 categories

Damn. That doesn't look good for Shinra for the FINAL SHOWDOWN for the presidency, does it folks? Never mind. Rye just undid all of Lekana's work with a reversal of the last category. Onto General, where Avalanche will be hoping for a strong showing from SilverWind & Rantzien on their home turf. Meanwhile, Shinra know they need to claw their way back, and so will pray that theundeadhero & Mittopotahis can deliver the goods.

Running count:
Avalanche: 64, 3 categories
Shinra: 62, 3 categories

BOTH PARTIES RECEIVE DOUBLE VOTES BECAUSE THEY SANG. So success here is going to put your party in a very good position...

theundeadhero & Mittopotahis

theundeadhero & Mittopotahis.....28
Rantzien & SilverWind............14

Christ, first one of you takes a lead, then the other eats it up and overtakes it. Can't we just have one party dominate? Onto the big two, Vice and Prez itself. Pureghetto will represent Shinra, while Flying Mullet carries the banner of Avalanche. We also have our friends the Turks joining the fray, with Vaern hoping to steal votes from a worthwhile cause.

Running count:
Shinra: 90, 4 categories
Avalanche: 78, 3 categories

See? More postey from you = more postey from me!

The turks makes this a complicated mess.

Assuming turks don't get votes, I need only 5 votes to win.

If they steal votes, it's too complicated for me to bother doing.

Looks like hero made the wrong choice for running mate, and Rye made the right one! IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN! Rye vs theundeadhero. Avalanche vs Shinra. Pussy Liberals vs Crazy Fascists. Oh, and NeoCracker :rolleyes2

I can now reveal that because of the vote count, the final presidential votes will be worth THREE.

Anyway, four categories all, 3 votes in it (which is basically just one vote when you consider the above). This WILL decide the outcome of this election, make no mistake about that.

Running count:
Shinra: 96, 4 categories
Avalanche: 93, 4 categories
The Turks: 1

So the winners of the 2008 EoFF elections are, of course



We're leaving ground. Will things ever be the same again? Rye SMASHES hero. Even if the votes were worth their real value, Avalanche would have won this election. (Rye got 15, hero 7, cracker 1)

Gamer Overt:
Avalanche: 138, 5 categories
Shinra: 116, 4 categories
The Turks: 4

Closer than the final vote count would suggest, really, but Rye delivered a whoopin'. 'grats, Avalanche!

And so Avalanche wrestled control of the forums from Shinra in a hard-fought battle. Unfortunately, due to their policy choices of stripping Cid's Knights of their power, EoFF went into pure anarchy. Daily goatse wars were the standard, 4chan memes were spammed all over the joint, while spambots claimed General Chat as their own.

President Rye, satisfied that she had destroyed the staff's authority, sat back and smoked a blunt or two, and pondered the future of EoFF. Oh fuck it, she said, and posted her tits.

11-07-2008, 11:04 PM



For the sake of anarchy.

As First Gentleman, I want to thank you all for your support and under-the-table work you have done. Without greasing the wheels of power this historic victory, the first Female President, could not have happened.

Of course, I am probably the unluckiest man alive right now, because my wife is both a wife, and the President. :(

We will be hosting arms auctions for various nefarious African leaders aboard the Presidential Yacht, currently based in our Summer White House in Newport:


Don't miss out! We're selling Bradleys, M-1 Abrams, thousands of units of small arms, a small number of newly developed Davy Crockett Mk. 2 'Pocket nukes', and a mystery auction to be announced on the day!

Wow, down to the last category. That was so close! Yay tuh and I won General! :D:D

Do you want to know what the most effective way to get people to believe is? To get a crazy man no one ever agrees with to believe the opposite is true!

You fell right into our hands puny mortals! All that was required for this plan to work was for me to raise a fuss, and then fade away when voting started getting closer. And given my record of dropping projects, I was PERFECT for this job! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
