How did you seed the brackets? Was it random?

Dat Matt
01-19-2015, 11:21 PM
Pretty much. Everything was given a "Seed" number based on nominations before random generating, and then I used that number as my ground for the Random Number Generator. So FFIV had like 7 or something like that and it was the first number picked so it went in slot 1, and Tactics had like 12 and was the second number and it went second.

The bottom half of the left bracket "Aka Niche-ville" was totally random. I was also kinda surprised xD

Jinx
01-19-2015, 11:23 PM
Yeah, the left bracket is pretty easy to predict who will win (FFVII) but the right bracket has VI, VIII, IX, and X...so, who knows!

Shauna

First entry to bite the dust was Final Fantasy Tactics. Final Fantasy IV advances to round 2.

Next up - Final Fantasy XI vs Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. Place your bets~

Tactics got a tough seed. It's one of the best but FFIV is much loved by many.

Ayen
01-23-2015, 02:43 AM
I thought Tactics was going to win at first because of all the people I've seen on here talk about how it's the best.

Guess I underestimated IV's following on here.

On your image in the OP, Matt, FFV looks like it lost to FFII going by the red lines.

9 and 12 will be going against one another and I don't know what i'm going to do about this because those are my two favorites. ;_; Then whichever one wins that has to go against theartrhythm :( My other favorite :(

The next two matchups - XII vs. IX and VI vs VIII - are certainly going to be interesting. All four are loved at EoFF by different groups of people.

I think IX will win, but I'm not sure about VI vs. VIII. Could go either way, honestly.

Group One: The Final Fantasy VII Show
Group Two: Who Wants To Be Beaten Up By Final Fantasy VII feat. Final Fantasy VII Jnr
Group Three: IX vs. XII, also featuring Cannon Fodder
Group Four: The Interesting One

I'm guessing VII will win, but IX is my favourite so I'm obviously rooting for that one :D

Loony BoB
01-26-2015, 03:51 PM
I don't think many people expected Vivi to win Best Character in the FF Ciddies, so you never know! These little tournies are great because often people will get surprised. The dead heat between some earlier games shows that more people care for other games than you'd think, and often people make assumptions based on a vocal few at EoFF.

Egami
01-31-2015, 12:00 PM
With X-2 vs IX coming up, I think it is safe to say that it is the end of the line for the Gullwings.

Going by the current results, X will easily win against Bartz and co. in the current poll but my, it sure has a tough road ahead...first against VI and if it wins that it goes up against IX. I will be voting for Yuna and her guardians in both cases; I hope they manage to pull ahead.

As amusing as it would be to see X and X-2 pitted against each other, both are going to have a hard fought match ahead of them for sure. FFVI is the last remaining 16 bit retro game in the tournament while X has had a sudden spike in popularity ever since the release of the HD port. It should be a good contest.

My predictions going into the next round are VII over XIV, IX over X-2, and VI may very well get the best out of X. The only one I'm not sure on how it's going to turn out is Crystal Chronicles vs. Tactics Advance 2.
