http://home.eyesonff.com/images/icons/bocoboco.gif Wark! Hello once again! In case you haven't been hanging about the forums lately, my name is Award Chocobo and I'm the host of a special event for the 25th Anniversary celebrations of Final Fantasy. Eyes on Final Fantasy will be hosting a special Ciddies event - for Final Fantasy!


And there's a prize up for grabs for members who participate, too! See the end of this post for details.

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/icons/bocoboco.gif For those not familiar with Ciddies, they are awards... and in this case, they will be handed out to the characters and monsters of Final Fantasy that we know and love! We've already finished the nomination stage of this event and now that we have the finalists, you can vote for who you want to win! (send your votes to me (http://home.eyesonff.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=38011)!). Posts made in this thread will not be counted, so definitely make sure you message me with them.


http://www.eyesonff.com/BoB/ffciddies/ffx2singing.png
Entertainment is planned for the audience! It'll be one big song and dance!

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/icons/bocoboco.gif At some point on the 15th/16th December, we will all gather in this forum to witness the Final Fantasy characters themselves receiving their awards! They will be gathering at the Opera House of FFVI, but as host of the event, I will keep you all posted on everything that goes on that evening. :)

We already have a few people at EoFF working on making this event very special, so all I need now is for you to send those votes my way via Mognet Message (http://home.eyesonff.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=38011) (aka Private Message). You can vote for one finalist for each award. But obviously you need to know who the finalists are! Without further fuss, here are the celebrities of the Final Fantasy world, here for your votes!

Some creatures weren't too happy at being left out of the finals, but Mog should keep them under control...


http://home.eyesonff.com/images/icons/bocoboco.gif Now, I know this is all hard work for everyone, but rest assured that it's not without a little incentive! Every member that votes for all the awards will be in with the chance to win their choice of the following...
- A Final Fantasy game of the user's choosing. Purchase may be up to GB£40 / US$60 or international equivalent and will be made from a respectable website.
- A GB£25 / US$40 voucher for PlayStation Network (this option included only so you can buy Final Fantasy games from there, of course!).

The winner will be revealed on 18th December - Final Fantasy's 25th birthday! Oh, and if you already entered the draw during the nominations stage, you can double your chances by voting as well!

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/icons/bocoboco.gif That's it! Kweh! Looks like we'll have to leave it up to you folks, now... please, send me your votes as soon as possible! If you're interested in who created the Ciddie image, all credit goes to a member of EoFF called Madonna for this work! Oh, and one more thing... what!? Only one nomination for Chocobo Theme!? Sometimes I wonder about the taste of you people... but I suppose those are some good songs you put through... okay, I'll let it slide. Just this once. But you better vote!

I am surprised that Death of Zack from FFVII:CC is not listed under "Best Moments". Next to Death of Aeris, it's the only moment when I cry for a hour during the ending credits. Really, it was an emotional moment and that deserves a Ciddie in my opinion. Oh well, no one else thought so.

As do I :( That aside there are some nominations I've read (in the list and those that didn't make the cut) that has made me realise how difficult voting will be given the quality of competition for each award. I also feel terrible for forgetting about the Kingdom of Baron music...

Glad to see I wasn't the only one thinking that Biggs is Wedge and vice versa, and that Zorn and Thorn are the cutest couple!

More nominations were made for Biggs than Wedge for MLT Be Wedge, and vice versa. Looks like most people had the same idea!

Ooh, looks like there's something else I'll need to fix in that list. If you really want to avoid the issue coming up in your PM or post, feel free to get around the filter (we'll allow it if you're not actually swearing, obviously) by putting tags in the middle of the name - eg. Yoshi[</>b][</>/b]taka = Yoshitaka

For snubbing me, you shall despair! I'll curse you all to have no hair! Ohohohohohoho! 38330
Dr. Shantotto did recieve two nominations for one of the awards - Cutest Female, amusingly - however, 8 the eight finalists all received at least six nominations! Seriously, participation was awesome.

Warrior of Light was one nomination away from getting into Best Hero, and the same again for Most Influential Character. Garland was nominated for five different Ciddies, but not more than once for any of them. Both Invisible Woman and Arylon the Dancer were nominated for Best NPC. White Wizard got a nomination for Cutest Female, too. There might be more in there somewhere...

Ah, I think the reason Best Song had so many nomination snubs is because a lot of people interpreted "song" to mean "has singing". I know I did, at least, so all three of my nominations were vocal pieces. I don't know if the data supports this theory though. *stares at Award Chocobo*

Nah, it was simply that out of all 13+ soundtracks (hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of tracks), a song had to get at least three nominations to get to the finals. With only three nominations from each person allowed... I'm pretty sure I'd struggle to find someone else with the same top three FF songs. :p Too much choice leads to wide scattered votes with little overlap.

If it were only vocal pieces there would be a lot less not making it to the final, because there's only so many vocal tracks. Only half of the finalists are vocal tracks, so your theory does not hold up too well. :3

The Man
12-10-2012, 10:36 PM
Well, it's possible some of the people who nominated thought best song would be only vocal pieces, but others didn't. In that case that would explain why half the pieces are vocal pieces when really, there aren't that many vocal pieces in Final Fantasy.

Gonna vote soon.

12-10-2012, 10:45 PM
Also, wtf at some of those "get together" nominations. Celes and Locke already are a couple. Edge and Rydia are pretty blatantly implied to be one as well, and Quina and Vivi are technically married :monster:

Anyway, voted :monster:

Ah, I think the reason Best Song had so many nomination snubs is because a lot of people interpreted "song" to mean "has singing". I know I did, at least, so all three of my nominations were vocal pieces. I don't know if the data supports this theory though. *stares at Award Chocobo*

This was my thought, a "song" implies lyrics, so I voted that way.

Really? I must have been quite aware of the question. Granted, I did nominate Suteki da Ne, but I was tempted to go for Movement in Green instead.

Award Chocobo: When does voting close, and when are results being posted? I need to know so I can decide when to set the deadline for the predictions party :<

Award Chocobo
12-11-2012, 10:04 PM
Voting, I'm not sure... it may be Thursday as I have a very large amount to plan out. Friday at the very latest. Assume Thursday for now, GMT, around 8pm.

The predictions, of course, can carry on after that if they want, but you're right in that it's probably best to close them earlier on.

Pretty sure a lot of guys around here find lesbians attractive, actually... I guess they like what they can't have. ;) As for Rikku - she's 17 in one of the games! Not sure on Fang's age... maybe they find the length of her pole intimidating. :smash:

Can't say I know that for certain, to be honest, although I have heard that mentioned before.

Just a heads up everyone, to show you how close it is - 56 members have voted so far, I expect that to rise to at least 70 before we're done... and I can confirm it's currently a four way tie for Best Character. Yikes!

FFVII spoilers (especially Aeris' death, which is an It Was His Sled-level spoiler) aren't anywhere near the same thing as FFXIII spoilers. The statute of limitations on FFVII has clearly passed, but FFXIII hasn't even been out for three years yet.

I feel its fine to spoil her age since XIII's plot is so bad having it spoiled is more like a warning about the bulltrout of its writing than being something that will fundamentally ruin the game for you.

In less than ten hours, this number has shot up to 70 members voted already. There are currently ties in awards such as Best Heroine, Best Dialogue, MLT Get Killed off in a New Sequel and MLT Be Riding the Chocobo. Loads more are seperated by just one or two votes, so it's going to be a very close-fought affair on all but a handful of the awards!

As I said above, FFXIII hasn't even been out for three years yet. It came out in early 2010 (except in Japan, where it was late 2009).

Two. :p But I think it's safe to say that there are a lot of spoilers in this thread alone, it's something that you have to do when there are awards for things like Best Moment. Still, avoiding spoilers where possible is a big plus. Meanwhile, how about them awards, huh? :D
