Happy Birthday Final Fantasy!

So, I don't know whether you've heard of this series - Final Fantasy, it's a pretty niche thing - but it is turning 30 this year. So old. Join us in celebrating EoFF's namesake in its big milestone!

To kick off the celebrations, which will hopefully see various events and such running throughout the rest of the year, we are going to have a character tournament! Yes, I know, such an original idea.




A Character Tournament? I cannot contain my excitement, tell me more!
But which characters will be included in this? There are literally millions of characters to choose from!

That's where I need your input, friends! Please send in via PM to me (http://home.eyesonff.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=15366) a maximum of 10 Final Fantasy characters of your choice. Use whatever criteria you want for nominating them! Maybe you like the frill of their socks? That is fine.

The 32 characters with the most nominations will be randomly seeded, and they will each go head to head until we vote the ultimate champion! I can only hope that we see an upset like the IX vs X-2 battle we had a few years ago! What an exciting time that was!

Get your nominations in by Friday 4th August and we'll get this party started!




Is that it?!
No no, there's one more thing... There has been a generous offer made! Three A number of lucky participants will get a neat prize! Well, okay, it's not that neat. Times are tough, and we're not inventive to do something more fancy.

The three number of lucky participants will get any Steam game of their choice*! Ain't that swell? The more you participate in the overall tournament the higher your chances of winning. There will be one winner announced per week of the tournament. No, this is not begging or bribery. :colbert:


So, what are you waiting for? Get nominating, nerds!


*Up to a value of $30; for those that do not have Steam, we will discuss an alternative means of providing you with your prize

Do they need to be playable characters or any character?

Shauna
07-30-2017, 11:16 AM
Any character at all! I mean preferably with a name for ease, but if you wanna nominate "Stay Away from the Summoner" Lady, then by all means.

I just voted for the ten I love most. Don't ruin this thing with tactical voting!

Narrowing this down from eleven to ten was legitimately difficult. I had to cut a character I am very dear to. :(

Thank you to my 10 nominees so far! Only 4 days left to get your favourite characters in!

I gotta say, I'm surprised at some of the characters whose names haven't popped up yet. I would have thought they were more popular!

Psychotic
07-31-2017, 07:09 PM
Voted for my 10! I tried to pick 5 boys, 5 girls and each one from a different FF. ...although I may have counted XIII and XIII-2 as two FFs. Bloody hell, I don't even like the XIII trilogy!

Can I send in more votes if other people don't nominate?

Shauna
07-31-2017, 08:20 PM
We actually have 25 characters with two nominations or more, so hopefully I'll get enough noms in that I won't require any more from people who have already nominated!

Not to mention, I haven't nominated anyone so...

Lyndis Highwind
07-31-2017, 08:25 PM
Do we just send in their names, or do we give reasons for nominating them as well?

Shauna
07-31-2017, 08:26 PM
Just names is fine! We can have the long reasoned debates for each character once we get to the actual tournament!

Aulayna

Just a bit over 48 hours to get your names in. We still need some more sets to ensure we hit the 32 character mark!

I was worried we weren't going to hit it with characters with two nominations minimum, but now we have 40 characters with that threshold. So, trying to get the cut off of 3+ nominations now! We have 21 of those, so just 11 more characters need to be pushed over the line!

I hope to not have to send out any fun PMs to peeps - I see you checking the thread and not sending in your favourite characters. I see you. :stare:

Shauna
08-03-2017, 01:37 PM

We're in the final stretch! The nomination round closes tonight (GMT tonight, so approximately 12 hours)! 200 individual nominations in - thank you so much, guys! Always room for more, so make sure you get your names in!

I'll just be sending out a few nudge PMs today to see if I can drag some nominations outta folk, but worst case scenario, we can deal with what we've got.

Shauna
08-04-2017, 01:11 PM
I am about to slink off and play Crash Bandicoot for a few hours, but before I disappear into the afternoon - I decided I'd give a brief update on the Numbers so Far!


23 sets of nominations in, with a total of 222 character nominations! Thank you all!
That accounts for 105 individual characters being nominated. That is a lot of great personalities being put up to the plate.
One character so far has 8 nominations - the most any single character has garnered! Who could it be?!
Despite there being so many great characters to choose from, 51 characters so far have gotten two or more nominations. Almost half!

Shauna
08-04-2017, 04:59 PM
I have been getting through some SUSPICIOUS sets of nominations from Russia, apparently. Why can they leave nothing alone?

Right, I've finished all my reviewing of the characters, so I'm just gonna try and get all the honourable mentions out ASAP. Except for all that video games time.

A lot of characters got 2 nominations really early on and I thought they'd be through for sure. Then the nominations just dried up for them. Just the way the cookie crumbles, I guess!

Yet another joke character nomination hits the honourable mentions. Gotta admit, it would have been cool to see how "This Guy are Sick" dude would have held up against some of the big hitters that made it to the finals.

As an aside, it was really difficult to find some character pictures that weren't massive for some reason. I could have resized them, but eh. I have like 90 honourable mentions to get through, ain't nobody got time for that.

I'm gonna be straight with you all here - the picture of the Seeq? I don't know if he's the Jovial Seeq. But you're gonna have to deal with just a random Seeq because I can't do anything better. But at least we have Joe with his snazzy hat to make up for it.

And I'll say it again, as we have plenty more coming up - damn we got a lot of FFXIV characters popping their heads in to say hello.

Things that surprised me during nominations:
- Cids were... not common nominations. At all. I didn't think too much of it until I finally got a Cid nomination in, really late on in the game. I would have thought we'd see more of the various Cids!
- Sephiroth only got one nomination. What the heck!
- Edward has a full name, and it is really really dumb.

I think Sephiroth suffers from oversaturation and oversimplification. He's definitely the most well known and prominent FF villain and Square love to give us him and One Winged Angel remixes at every opportunity. I like him but I'm also kind of bored of him by now.

I've seen several members here boil down his plot to "oh he's a mama's boy" or whatever and say therefore he's a bad villain, but smurf that because they're all a bit one dimensional. Above any FF villain before or since, he has presence. The closest ones to that are probably Caius and Ardyn. Maybe X-Death. And Jecht, if you count Jecht as a villain (I don't)

A big ol' round of applause for the 90+ characters who didn't quite get the level of support they needed to break through into the top 32! Whoo! This was a lot of time spent on those that didn't make it, but you know, gotta drag things out forever! But really, a lot of great characters were nominated, and it's good to give them all a bit of appreciation despite them not going on to the knockout rounds.

So. It's time for the reveal of those who did make it through!

Terra Branford - Final Fantasy VI

When I mentioned before that one character was sitting at eight, it was Balthier! He led the pack for a significant amount of the nomination cycle.


There's one more character left. Take a guess - who could it be? How many nominations do you think they got?

Vivi for sure. I'm guessing he's got eleven nominations. I will be absolutely surprised if it's not him.

You called it, guys! Well done on guessing the number of nominations too - you win a :up: .

It's none other than our very own

Vivi Ornitier - Final Fantasy IX
https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/finalfantasy/images/3/39/ViviMirror-FFIX.PNG

A third of those nominating threw one in for Vivi. What a popular guy. Will his popularity carry him all the way through the tournament? Time will tell!

What now, you ask? Let me give a brief overview!

For the next 14 days starting from tomorrow (god help us) there will be two polls posted on the forum. I'll make a hub thread as well, for overall discussion and a place for us to track the competition as it goes on.

Vote in those polls for your favourite character of the two! Tell us why! Tell others why they are wrong (politely, of course)!

Following those 14 days, there will be 4 further days of one poll being posted - this will be the semi-finals, 3rd place and final rounds. Giving them their own days for maximum intensity.

There will be more chances for prizes across the next 18 days, so make sure you keep an eye out for the polls popping up and get involved!
