Welcome to the Ultimate Character Showdown Main Discussion Thread!

A place for overall tournament discussion (please keep specific character v. character chat to their individual threads!), predictions and also mainly for me to keep track of the competition as it goes on. I'll be updating this OP with links to the individual polls, posting winners/losers, and anything else of interest.

The polls will be posted at approximately 6pm GMT/2pm EST every day and they will be up for 24 hours. So make sure you get your votes in before they close!

We have about 2 hours until the first two polls will go up, so - who do you think is going to win? Who do you want to win?

There are still prizes up for grabs - again, participation nets you more entries as always, so get involved! As a reminder, the prize is any Steam game of your choice (or, as I worked out with fat_moogle, an Amazon gift voucher where Steam is not an option) up to a value of $30!

I'll be back in a few hours for the first polls - but let me wish the best of luck to all the characters nominated!

Sorry, Faris, I let you down. :( Squall I'd probably have gone for over Ramza only because I can barely remember much about the FFT plot and I never even finished it anyway so uhm. Oops. Better to miss that day than the current one though, where I can let my FFVII love flow free.

Right so.

As I found out today, Steam has actually heavily cracked down on gifting across regions. It is unlikely then, that I will be able to gift games through Steam to anyone outside of the UK.

Again, for transparency on how you got an entry:
- casting a vote in a poll got you one entry
- five posts in either the poll threads or the hub thread got you one entry (i.e. Galuf made 25 posts across all the threads, and so got 5 entries)

Seriously, though: I'm incredibly surprised Vivi was kicked out period, but especially so early in the game. I thought for sure he'd win. It's especially surprising to see him lose to a character that seems to be fairly controversial (in the sense, you either love him or hate him, rarely do I see people just sort of like him).

Still, what a twist!

Loony BoB
08-16-2017, 11:55 AM
I guess Vivi fares well against masses where you can have multiple votes and/or where people's faves are more spread out amongst various opposition, but not so well against specific opposition when it's a 1 v 1 fight. I remember Vivi won Best Character in the 25th Anniversary Ciddies thing too, which had quite a large haul of votes. It probably also helps that with these polls it's a much more niche group voting rather than a huge mass of people.

Prompto is first alphabetically so should therefore win.

Yes, but Red is from the chronological earlier game, so he should win.

Scratch that: he's from a non-shitty game. Non-shitty game character gets the tiebreaker.

Due to some scheduling issues (diplomatic way of saying it's the weekend and I'm getting drunk every day) I will be ending this poll early, probably tomorrow's early and then Sunday's I will probably let run a bit late to try and make up for my shortcomings.

Just a heads up!

Pools Open!

Another draw will be made today also! Been a week! I'll get those names - also if the previous weeks' winners could actually get back to me at some point, that would be ace. xD

Also, today marks the last day of having two polls up! From tomorrow onwards, for the semi-finals, third place and finals - we will be having one poll per day.

No, thank you! Without all your input, Yuna would have won this competition as she would have been the only person nominated. But yes, thank you all for getting involved!


Speaking of getting involved... I did say that doing so increased your chance of winning.

I have one more prize! For the person who managed to scoop up the most entries (i.e. voted lots and got involved in discussions the most) throughout the competition!

I am sure it comes to no surprise that it is

Someone's a salty boy.

Anyway I made another skin inspired by this tournament called Dark Skies. It gives you all of the neat little Fifteen stuff like the curved post info boxes and wide-but-fixed-width (how the fuck do people using Aeris Reborn and Old Skool live with that width?) but uses a dark colour palette. Our two finalists feature as the background. Enjoy!
