View Full Version : Fall Classic Screen Name Tournament: Two-for-one: Drama + Winner.

Hi. It seems to be that time again! Over the past year, this tournament has been wonderfully hosted by the great Ouch! but alas, it returns back to under my helm as I host the 20th Screen Name Tournament, or the Fall Classic Screen Name Tournament. I have gathered 128 names (not including past winning screen names featured in the Unofficial Screen Name Hall of Fame) to duke it off until one final name remains to be named into the Hall of Fame.

During the spring of this year, the winning screen name turned out to be none other than... what was it? Oh yes, it was 41-Inches-Wide! She managed to win against the likes of scrumpleberry, which was also a superb name. How very exciting it was, and we hope to see a similar finals for this Fall Classic's Finals.

Now, for those unfamiliar and looking forward to their first ever screen name tournament here is what you should expect to see. As I have earlier said, there will be 128 screen names, all divided into eight brackets of sixteen names each. Your duty is to select a screen name out of each paired match-up. The name with the most votes will advance to the next round and we start over until the final round. There will be seven rounds total, and each will have two days for voting, so that means this tournament will end within two weeks.

Now for some voting rules.

1. Don't post your votes.
2. PM your votes to Agent Proto.
3. Vote for one name from each match-up. You should have eight names chosen for each bracket this round.
4. If you wish to not vote for a match-up, please leave a blank.
5. Please title your PMs accordingly! (Optional.)
6. If you wish to change any votes, please title your PM "Vote Change" and indicate which votes you wish to change. Don't just send a revote including vote changes.

So you want an example of what your votes should look like? Well look no further, I've got you covered!

Example Bracket
1. Jane
1. Billy
2. Steven
2. Henry
3. Paul
3. Dan
4. Nicole
4. Stephany

Your votes should look like this in your PM.

Example Bracket
1. Billy
2. Steven

Fan-fucking-tastic. Against Maxx Power. :(

Jiro
10-05-2009, 11:14 AM
I'm feeling particularly arrogant today so I think I'll go down in Round 3, beaten out by The Shoeless Hobo. I'm surprised he's not in the hall of fame already!

EDIT: Gahh, voting was tough. So many good names, such vague judging criteria. I think Woodinator has my bet though.

Timekeeper
10-05-2009, 11:42 AM
Alright Mold Anus, bring it! :monocle:

Raven Nox

Ace Protorney

Anyway, to see some discussion going on, let's start off with some early predictions! Who do you guys think would win each bracket?

DK
10-05-2009, 04:13 PM
I am not happy with you Proto you always leave Keith out of this even though he has one of the best names on EoFF I demand you take me out of this sham of a competition and put him in instead you awful man :irked:

scrumpleberry
10-05-2009, 04:16 PM
koshiotor?

Ace Protorney
10-05-2009, 04:38 PM
Dan, no can do. Once voting has started, it wouldn't be fair for Keith or Momiji. All the names up will not be removed or changed. Sorry. ;)

scrumpleberry: Yeah, blame my handwriting, I read it with an -or instead of -ar. It has been fixed. xD

Loony BoB
10-05-2009, 04:49 PM
smittenkitten + The Shoeless Hobo for the win!

EDIT: I am willing to sacrifice my involvement for I Took the Red Pill's involvement. Having said that, I don't think either of would win anyway. But his is pretty much a more amusing SN than mine.

Rodarian
10-05-2009, 05:28 PM
I have such stiff competition.....This pony won't even leave the race stand of the Kentucky derby! :(

Jessweeee♪

Breine
10-05-2009, 06:07 PM
I think that either Shlup, Flying Mullet, PG or The Shoeless Hobo deserve to win. But really, there are so many good names.

Huckleberry Quin
10-05-2009, 06:09 PM
What kind of person thinks "Quin" is a good name?

Melissaur
10-05-2009, 06:26 PM
I Don't Need a Name, I think has a good chance! love the "lack of a name"

Mister Adequate
10-05-2009, 06:27 PM
My laurels.

I rest on them. :smug:

Breine
10-05-2009, 06:28 PM
What kind of person thinks "Quin" is a good name?

...You?

Ace Protorney
10-05-2009, 10:08 PM
This just in. After a good handful of votes, there have been some very tight match-ups. I'll report them to you guys.

Before doing so, I'll describe a tight match-up. That is a match-up where the there is at least a two-vote difference between the two screen names. There are quite a bunch of those so far!

Garland Bracket: 2 match-ups
Golbez Bracket: 3 match-ups
Exdeath Bracket: 1 match-up
Kefka Bracket: 2 match-ups
Sephiroth Bracket: 2 match-ups
Ultimecia Bracket: 2 match-ups
Kuja Bracket: 2 match-ups
Jecht Bracket: 1 match-up

Voting is still going on, so PM in your votes if you haven't done so already!

Ouch!
10-05-2009, 10:17 PM
I'll have my votes in soon, Proto. I promise!

Ace Protorney
10-05-2009, 10:25 PM
Ok, here is a compromise to both Loony BoB and DK. If either of your names advances to the next round, I will have I Took the Red Pill replace your name. Will that be acceptable?

Madonna
10-05-2009, 10:55 PM
I am so wishing I was allowed to keep BMIWBR for this, but I guess that is out the window! Grrr, rubah!

I will vote the following rounds, since it seems I missed out on this one! Good luck, folks!

Marshall Banana
10-05-2009, 10:57 PM
I'm biased and like my own name best! I also like "smittenkitten."

Huckleberry Quin

I think it's a necessary name. :(

If it ain't a Quin related pun, I don't think my name has any right being in a tournament. :doublecolbert:

I accept, but it's kind of pointless as I don't think I will be progressing to the next round. :p

Ace Protorney
10-06-2009, 05:11 PM
Silly BoB. :p You don't really know if your name may not win. It may or it may not. 'sides, Red Pill will take your name's place if it does advance, so be patience. There's still the rest of the day before I announce the results and get onto the next round!

As for everyone else who haven't voted, it's not too late to send your votes in for this round. I've got several undecided match-ups waiting for a clear winner!

Heads up to anyone interested! Since Loony BoB has advanced to the next round, he has agreed to have his name replaced with I Took the Red Pill, so Red Pill will be in his place in the second round.

Let's see how many close match-ups we have for each bracket. a close match-up is one with a difference of 2 or less votes between the names.

Garland Bracket: 0

I haven't seen any new votes in a couple hours, and hardly anyone has been posting in the thread, so I will be closing the voting for this round now and will be posting the results up so I can prepare for the next round. There has been two ties this time around! And both ties involved the hosts of these tournaments, Ouch! and Agent Proto. How fascinating that must be.

Anyway, to the results!

Round three is here. Now that we're down to 32 names, each bracket now have four names remaining. I have decided to join two brackets to form a division, so instead of eight brackets, there will be four divisions, each named after a hero in Dissidia, as the brackets were named after the villains.

The Cecil Division consists of the Garland and Golbez brackets; the Terra Division consists of the Exdeath and Kefka brackets; the Cloud Division consists of the Sephiroth and Ultimecia brackets; and the Zidane Division consists of the Kuja and Jecht brackets. With that in mind, let's start round three!

Round Three

Cecil Division.
1. scrumpleberry
1. I Took the Red Pill
2. Whiffles
2. Noctiluca
3. smittenkitten
3. theundeadhero
4. ShlupQuack
4. Marshall Banana
<small><b>Possible close match-up(s):</b> smittenkitten - theundeadhero, ShlupQuack - Marshall Banana
<i>We have several interesting match-ups for this division. scrumpleberry and smittenkitten, both were in the Final Four in the last tournament, are facing tough competition. We also have a Battle of the <s>Cute Names;Girls-Who-Like-Cute-Stuff</s><b><u>Strawberry Lovers</b></u> (I think?) between ShlupQuack and Marshall Banana!</i></small>

Terra Division.
1. The Shoeless Hobo
1. Jiro
2. Shiny
2. Necronopticous
3. I Don't Need a Name
3. Wolf Kanno
4. KoShiatar
4. Dolentrean
<small><b>Possible close match-up(s):</b> None.
<i>It may appear that each of the match-ups seem pretty easy to see a clear winner, but you can't count out the underdog screen names like Wolf Kanno and Jiro out just yet.</i></small>

Cloud Division.
1. Dignified Pauper
1. TheAbominatrix
2. Pureghetto
2. Roogle
3. Moon Rabbits
3. Woodinator
4. Vermachtnis
4. Jessweeee♪
<small><b>Possible close match-up(s):</b> Dignified Pauper - TheAbominatrix, Pureghetto - Roogle
<i>There is nothing to report for this division. However, I do want to say this... Ouch! And the Flying Arrow is out of the building! Poor pun and grammar, indeed! :D</i></small>

Zidane Division.
1. The Unknown Guru
1. Old Manus
2. Captain Maxx Power
2. Vice Nebulosa
3. Agent Proto
3. Bunny
4. Melissaur
4. Rantzien
<small><b>Possible close match-up(s):</b> The Unknown Guru - Old Manus, Melissaur - Rantzien
<i>So it looks like Yeargdribble and the popular Flying Mullet didn't get to advance any further. And will Bunny's prediction come true and lose out in this round to Agent Proto? And how about that last match-up?</i></small>

Voting starts now and will last for two days. :monster: And could a staffer please update the thread title as well? Thanks much.

<b>Optional Discussion:</b> Which screen names do you think will win their respective divisions?

Marshall Banana
10-09-2009, 05:20 AM
I didn't register with "Marshall Banana" because I think it's cute. I don't like bananas, and "ShlupQuack" is cuter.

"Marshall Banana" is a Cowboy Bebop reference.

Ace Protorney
10-09-2009, 05:24 AM
I couldn't really think of an appropriate name for the match-up, but I think it's rather interesting you both are paired up in a match-up. What would you have named it as?

I hope this will bring up some discussion, but it's purely optional to do.

Since there are eight remaining screen names for each Division, this should give you a good idea of who could win in the future rounds. Which screen names do you think will win their respective divisions?

Ace Protorney

Reporting in with some quick updates for this round. Let's take a look at each division to see how many close match-ups we currently have. Remember a close match-up has a vote difference of 2 or less between the screen names.

Cecil Division: 3 match-ups
Terra Division: 1 match-up
Cloud Division: 2 match-ups
Zidane Division: 1 match-up

Fun fact: Cecil Division currently holds the most female members remaining with five! Garland Bracket also started the tournament with five female members.

Don't forget about the optional discussion! I'm interested to see who you think would win each division.

Hm, let's get rolling with the next round.

Sweet 16

Cecil Division.
Garland Bracket.
I Took the Red Pill
Noctiluca
<small>I Took the Red Pill should be fortunate that Loony BoB offered to let his name be replaced, or we may not have seen this match-up for the Sweet 16. His challenger for the Garland bracket is Noctiluca, who has been at this point before, as was Red Pill. Who will make a visit to the next round?</small>

Golbez Bracket.
smittenkitten
ShlupQuack
<small>Smitzy would be proud of smittenkitten, as she makes another visit to the Sweet 16. Same goes for ShlupQuack, who beated out Marshall Banana in the Battle of the Strawberry Lovers, now it's time for Part II, and this time it's for the Golbez bracket!</small>

Terra Division
Exdeath Bracket.
The Shoeless Hobo
Necronopticous
<small>Here, we have the Hobo, who has been here before last time, facing off against Necronopticous, who is making his first visit to the Sweet 16. They are fighting for the Exdeath bracket.</small>

Kefka Bracket.
I Don't Need a Name
KoShiatar
<small>The nameless one against one of CK's finest artists for the Kefka bracket. Will I Don't Need a Name prove that you don't need a name to win, or will KoShiatar continue her surprising run to the next round?</small>

Cloud Division
Sephiroth Bracket.
TheAbominatrix
Roogle
<small>Roogle returns to the Sweet 16! His opponent, TheAbominatrix (without a space!) makes a surprise visit with her victory over the Diginified Pauper, preventing Marick a return. They face off against each other for the Sephiroth bracket.</small>

Ultimecia Bracket.
Moon Rabbits
Jessweeee(musical note)
<small>The Ultimecia bracket turned out to be no real surprise. Moon Rabbits and Jessweeee both made it to the Sweet 16 in the spring. However, only one of them will move on while the other stays put.</small>

Zidane Division
Kuja Bracket.
The Unknown Guru
Captain Maxx Power
<small>The underdog for the Kuja bracket, Captain Maxx Power of the Pirate Red Mages!! This would be his first ever visit to the Sweet 16, and his opponent would be The Unknown Guru, one of the more popular choices to win! Will the Captain (not to be confused with The Captain) make a surprise victory or will the Guru continue on as expected?</small>

Jecht Bracket.
Agent Proto
Melissaur
<small>And finally, we have the Jecht bracket. Here we have one of the more unlikeliest match-ups with Agent Proto and Melissaur. However, only one will move on, continuing their unlikely run in the tournament. Will it be the name that upsetted Flying Mullet in the second round, or the name that had been recently changed (though not as recent as Garnet Eiko LAX 2009 Extreme)?</small>

For easier voting, please use the following when you PM me.

Reporting in! After a day of votes, pretty much all eight match-ups are toss-ups! What does this mean? It means anyone could win and advance to the next round. There are no clear leaders, so who should win is up to the voters to decide. There is still a day left, so please vote if you can!

Only you can decide who wins!

Well, reporting in with how the voting is going. Of the four match-ups, only one is neck to neck. I can't reveal which match-up it is, but I will say that anything goes if the voting continues on! :) Remember folks, the next round will be the Final Four and following that, the Finals where we decide on a name to join the UnOfficial Screen Name Hall of Fame.

Loony BoB
10-14-2009, 12:41 PM
I think it's only right that he's in there, although I wouldn't want him to win purely because he got in through an 'alternative' route. In fact, I'd be disappointed if Danielle didn't get to the next round (I may be biased there, mind you...) and surprised if he got to the final as he'd have to get through my other hopeful, The Shoeless Hobo, as well. Pretty confident that the semifinal of the first four will likely end up being the winner by a landslide in the final as the latter four just don't scream "Winner" on any level...

Elite Eight Results

4. <s>The Unknown Guru</s>.....||||\||| (8)
4. Agent Proto..........||||\|||| (9)

I Took the Red Pill, coming in as Loony BoB's replacement, makes it all the way to the Final Four winning the Cecil Division over BoB's Pink Knight and favorite, smittenkitten (who was also in the Final Four last time.) Winning the Terra Division is the ever so popular name, The Shoeless Hobo, making his second straight appearance to the Final Four. Moon Rabbits returns to the Final Four after winning the Cloud Division over newcomer TheAbominatrix. Topping off the Final Four is the winner of the Zidane Division, Agent Proto, who topped The Unknown Guru in a very tight match-up!

That makes up for the Final Four! I Took the Red Pill vs. The Shoeless Hobo and Moon Rabbits vs. Agent Proto

Final Four

1. I Took the Red Pill
1. The Shoeless Hobo
2. Moon Rabbits
2. Agent Proto

Voting starts immediately and will end within two day. Also, could a staff member update the thread title for me? Much appreciated. :D

I am continuously surprised by the group's effort to have a lack of taste! There is still meager hope here and I wish for the best name to win!

Loony BoB
10-15-2009, 09:51 AM
That's the last time I sacrifice my name so that someone can beat Danielle's name. You people have no taste for a good rhyme. Having said that, I Took the Red Pill is still mildly better than Moon Rabbits and Agent Proto, one of which is due for an absolute battering after TheAbominatrix missed out on her chance of reaching the final.

Having said that, one of my favourites is still in there and I trust that it shall still prevail. On the Hobo!

Tsk, time for results! (It looks like I'm posting a whole lot lately with the lack of others posting. :()

And let's see how the voting turned out!

Final Four Results!

1. I Took the Red Pill..||||\||||\ (10)
1. <s>The Shoeless Hobo</s>....||||\ (5)
2. <s>Moon Rabbits</s>.........||||\| (6)
2. Agent Proto..........||||\|| (7)

So, there we have it. For the Finals, we have I Took the Red Pill (winning 10 to 5 over The Shoeless Hobo), who was a substitute for Loony BoB and the host with the most, Agent Proto (winning a close 7 to 6 over Moon Rabbits). This marks Proto's second appearance to the Finals, and Red Pill's first after his second trip to the Final Four. And now one has a chance to win it all. Either winning will mark the ultimate upset, one way or another. So, who would take the prize and join the others in the UnOfficial Screen Name Hall of Fame?

The Finals

I Took the Red Pill

or

Agent Proto

Remember to send your final vote <strike>for me</strike>to me, Agent Proto. You have about two days to do this! No pressure, okay?

Discussion: Now that the Finals are here, what are your opinions? Surprised or not? Who would you have preferred to see instead make it this far? Don't be afraid to speak out!

Just for your sake, I am really surprised to see my name make it this far. I was really expecting to go out in the second round, but things turned out rather differently with the unexpected tie with Flying Mullet. :monster: No complaints, really. Just surprised about it.

Regardless, I'm rooting for Proto. He's definitely the underdog, and that's who we support in Australia.

Jiro: So you never support your own teams in cricket, rugby league or the Olympics? :p

I suppose I should vote for Agent Proto so I never again have to feel like people are voting or his username for a reason that isn't to do with his username... but eh, then again, I also feel like people are doing the same with Red Pill, so it's lose-lose for me. I vote for The Shoeless Hobo.

But really? Agent Proto? I mean, why is that one of the best usernames here? Can anyone tell me? I can't believe to this day that I once got to a final of this contest for any reason other than being popular, so I guess it can happen to anyone. I just can't understand why it's considered to be such a good name... maybe I'm missing some kind of witty reference or something. EDIT: But then I suppose I can say similar things for about 5 of the earlier winners too =x I'm just picky I guess xD

Australia is the underdog in all the sports that I follow. We are ridiculously patriotic, but we also support others who are the underdog. I remember watching a tennis match where the foreigner was cheered for more by the crowd then the Australian player. Of course it was that girl with the jerk father, I don't remember. Tennis isn't my sport either.

Honest, I never intended to have my name end up here, but I'll see how voting turns out in the end. It'll be a bit slow, I bet, and I may extend the deadline for another day if for some reason I end up with less than ten votes by the end of the second day.

Australia might have the problem of tall poppy syndrome, but this one minor negative means that Australian's are more willing to give everyone a fair go and to get out there and support the underdog in pretty much every sport there is. As they say, the Aussie crowd claps loudest for the last man who crosses the finish line. Isn't that nice?

It's all about the vote. I don't claim to understand why most would vote my name over another, but the name did receive more votes than the names it faced, even if it wasn't by a huge amount like some of the others had. If the tournament received more voters during the later rounds, perhaps we'll have a different result.

gotta be honest, not entirely sure why "The Shoeless Hobo" is supposed to be the greatest username in the history of EoFF or anything, it's kind of medicore imho. And that is what it comes down to really, my opinion, and all of our opinions. Everyone is so happy to jump on the "waah waah my favourite name didn't go through, it must be a popularity contest boohoo" bandwagon, toughen up ****'s, my favourite name wasn't even in the competition to start with until someone sacrificed themselves for it and now it's made it to the finals. So there's more than one person that enjoys that name. People have different opinions, it's clearly not all down to being a popularity contest otherwise Paul would win every year and Proto would be out in the first round (:aimkiss: Geoff), deal with it or GAGF, just stop whinging

Psychotic
10-18-2009, 07:58 PM

Wow DK. Serious much?

Take your cookie and go sit in your corner. If people whine they whine. Or "GAGF" with your opinion and whining about people whining. Hypocrisy much? Or should we all jump on your boohoo bandwagon of people whining? Maybe that'll make it better.

It's a competition, despite how much anyone whines the votes are the votes. If more people have a problem with it than the name was voted for then well, god dammit they should have voted for their faved name.

Go ahead and preach your piece. But don't think for an instant that in a competition that the finalists or the winner will be accepted by all. That's the whole reason there are votes, for a majority.

People complain, it's all they can do if they didn't like the outcome. Unless one of them makes a time machine and goes back in time to swing the votes to their candidates favor! But if that was the case I doubt they'd use their time machine to do that simple silly little task. I would play Go-fish with lincoln before I try to swing some votes in an internet name competition.

nowhere did I say the names in the final should be accepted by all, but coming steaming into the thread with "urrr, this name is crap, why is it even here, the name *I* like was sooo much better, wow this competition is clearly being fixed/voted on popularity and nothing else" is pure disrespect and failridden behaviour, shows a complete lack of class and grace for the people that have actually been voted for and advanced into the tournament on the back of their names. if you don't like having it pointed out to you when you're being a **** then don't be a **** quite frankly. there is a difference between complaining that your favourite name went out and you're upset and posting in the thread with the sole purpose of whinging that people only got through because of a popularity contest. Which is just horse:bou::bou::bou::bou: behaviour tbqh.

I missed the drama bombs; how upsetting! Never am I oft pleased by the group's choice of king, but that is the nature of team co-operation; a good compromise should leave everyone bitter! Anyways, names beat up names and names move on and if we matched up names differently maybe some different names would have made it and we would have different finalists, but hey, this is a tournament! Contestants get eliminated and sometimes the pairings are not ideal for some, but we shall have a champion!

I am backing the Agent; bring it, Pillsy!

People complain and whine about things all the time when they don't get what they wanted. I call it being a spoilt brat really if you're so used to getting your own way that you can't accept that it doesn't always go the way you wanted it to then you need to 1) grow up, 2) get a good taste of what life is really like and 3) learn to accept the fact that life is full of crap and sometimes the crap lands on you. If everyone was acting as spoilt as this in the real world then the world simply wouldn't work at all. I'm with Dan on this; quit your whining you've had a chance to vote and it didn't go your way, learn to face facts if you voted for someone/something and the majority says your vote option sucked then well it aint going to happen is it? And for the record I haven't voted in this no, I've not been on EoFF properly since my laptop broke 10 weeks ago, I don't like typing on the girlfriends laptop I've kept up on things more by XBL (anyone doubting this can check with proto also, I'm sure seeing as my gamer score leapt like 2000 points recently you can all see what I've been killing time with) however because Proto asked for more votes I will PUBLICLY state my vote:

Proto, chalk me up for I took the red pill, Agent Proto is a decent name, don't get me wrong however I don't think it beats I took the red pill since I took the red pill is a good reference to a great movie imho.

Before announcing the winner, let's take a quick look at our two finalists.

<b>I Took the Red Pill</b>
Red Pill would have never made it had DK never made his complaint that his screen name had been overlooked, thus making Loony BoB have Red Pill replace him after his decisive victory over UnbreakableWill 11 to 8. Since then, he has taken on an impressive streak, starting with his victory over rubah, then taking out the last tournament's runner-up, scrumpleberry. Following scrumpleberry was Noctiluca, smittenkitten, and The Shoeless Hobo all the way to his first appearance to the Finals.

<b>Agent Proto</b>
Agent Proto's second appearance to the Finals was rather unlikely and unexpected. He sneaked his way through very close victories over some of his opponents. However, in the first round, he easily crushed Mirage 17 to 1. The second round, he tied with Flying Mullet, only to win through a tie-breaker. From there, it was smooth sailing until the Elite Eight, beating Bunny and Melissaur. However, he won two close match-ups over The Unknown Guru and Moon Rabbits. both by just one vote to get into the Finals.

So, out of the two remaining screen names, who have won it all?

...

We'll find out right after these next couple posts before I post again!

Timekeeper
10-19-2009, 05:35 AM

I'm really having trouble understanding why I have not won over and over and over. :colbert: Clearly whether it is based on the merits of the name itself, or on the popularity of the member, I should have won.

You're a pack of ingrates and I will have no more to do with you!

Good job to Keith and Proots for making it as far as they did. I didn't expect them to beat out Moon Rabbits and Shoeless Hobo, but they did. All four are great names imo.

Congrats on your win, Red Pill. Now all you need to do is take this gender verification test and you'll be all set.

I sadly missed your presence in this thread, Del, knowing you were usually sometimes vocal in this kind of competition threads at EoFF.

How well I do in these seems to rise and fall with my current popularity level, but whatever.

Yeah I kept forgetting to particpate because I don't check GC that often. Which is too bad because I would have loved the opportunity to shove Shoeless Hobo's missing shoe down BoB's throat.

Ouch!

Oh hey. I completely forgot about this. Damned midterms. Grats to the winner. See you all in the spring. I'm considering that bit about the acid pit seriously.
