>>437021 >>437019 (me) I know what it is, back in my day it was XJ-9. I just don't use the site anymore so maybe just put Eris forward. Those two characters are basically the two dedicated "First Boner" candidates for 2000s kids. also, .fandom.com is botnet, use the conservatory :^)
>>437014 I’m pretty sure they’ll be on the main site to be quite honest, hype threads were deleted in the past year as well, a lot of people would be quite upset if the tournaments were canned entirely because at this point it’s tradition. Although if something does end up happening this is definitely the backup site to do so. Not to mention if that new captcha system is fixed for many anons to rapid fire posts
>>437060 >electioneering RP Realistically there should be no roleplay, there wasn't for 2 1/2 years of tournaments. You could campaign for your character but not make it excessive, as in you're not fully indulged as the character And this is the most important: Once your character is done that's it, don't bring them up again. There's no point in bringing them up again once they are out. The main reason this mess happened is narcissistic Simonfags would not let go of their character
>>437064 >The main reason this mess happened is narcissistic Simonfags would not let go of their character It was more than that, it was the most seeded character going against the lowest seeded character, a first for all of the tourneys. It wasn't just Simonfags or Jackfags, that moment overshadowed the whole tourney right from the start.
>>437069 Really? I remember it being a very big deal that seed 1 was going against seed 128 I didn’t know that matchup happened in other tourneys, /co/ tourneys at the least I don’t participate in other tourneys
>>437070 This is just a misunderstanding if you haven't seen Simon's source material. In Infinity Train, the passengers get off the train after the number on their hand goes to zero but Simon believed the higher the number means the more powerful the person. In the contest, he has the highest number and it's in character for him to think this means he's a bigger deal than the lowest number. I don't particularly like the character but I can see why people thought it was funny.
>>437081 It isn't, the match-ups are randomized >>437091 Okay, i get the whole Simon fad last year now, it was a seed fitting to the character, like if numbuh 1 got the number 1 seed people would run with it
I'm curious at what point mods will stop deleting tourny threads on the main site.
Ms. /co/ last year had active discussion threads up basically 24/7 between the 5th of September and the 11th when it actually started, with no problem. Mr. /co/ is technically even more extreme because discuss on that basically starts the moment Ms. /co/ ends.
Tag is a bit harder to judge due to fuse last year, but still.
September 1st? Mid August? September 4th or 5th? Nothing til the day of due to all the excess attention this year
>>437276 Definitely not yet. I'd try at the two week mark at the tail end of August, and if that doesn't work, the first of September, and if that doesn't work, the 4th aka the one week mark, and if that doesn't work, the 5th aka where last years threads popped up, and it that doesn't work......give up
>>437293 For clarification (as the guy who made the tier list) the purple tier can be a bit confusing because it essentially has two different types of characters in it.
Firstly, the guys who fall dead inbetween Midtier's and E8ers. They tend to get consistently to the Top 16 and maybe even the E8, but not enough to go blue. Or, maybe they used to get E8, but have since fallen out of fashion to some degree.
Heinz, Bugs, and Jack are the main examples of that.
The rest of Purple Tier are either FOTM's (He-man, Pepe), have some sort of history with the tournament (Oswald, Simon), or characters with a high degree of violatility (Dan, Mao Mao) that COULD very easily go E8 or even win under the ideal circumstances, but could also easily flop early.
>>437294 Also, most of the tiers have mini plus tiers at the top that I'd put above the rest of their bracket, but below the tier above.
CandleJackov, Zoidberg, and Ramses are all Qualifer +. They could all very easily get in due to their status and maybe even get to R2, but they have no staying power. Candle has memes, Zoidberg too, though a bit broader and less /co/, Ramses has last years nonsense.
Ruckus, Alastor, and Jon are at the Early Round Plus tier for the same reason. Ruckus is very consistent in atleast going one round successfully, Alastor has the voice anon backing, and Jon has a weaker version of the Ruckus factor combined with infamy from last year. Could go a few rounds easily.
Midtier, all the Eds, Megamind, Iron Giant, and MAYBE Iroh would be plus tier. Their highly consistent and have come within striking range of the Elite's more then once.
Mao Mao and Dan are both Purple Plus due to them both forming a feedback loop with eachother with their rivarly and both having lot's of recent news to work with, though Mao Mao is higher since the cancellation leaks just happened while Dan's revival leak was back in February. Heinz is a connsistent high player, just not enough for Blue. Still, Purple Plus, Indigo i guess....
Courage is the only plus tier in Blue due to his new movie and Muriel's death.
>>437308 It's been like that since I started keeping track, it's what I used for the 128 day thread, the 64 day thread, and the 50 day thread where people said I had it wrong. Wiki had said September 10th since March.
>>437344 Yes Disney shows on /co/ have been following the "___fags" format to refer to fans of certain shows, more frequently then with other company shows >Frogfags is Amphibia >Owlfags is Owl House >Duckfags is Ducktales >Cabsfags is Three Caballeros Don't know if there's any more
>Depends on if they do anything special for the 5th year aniversary. I’m hoping for an extra two rounds, 512 total people on. That would require the host to return two more times. Who knows how long the host can single-handedly keep up with /co/s autism. I'd be surprised if he even comes back this year.
>>437518 Because we've told you 1000 times to not post these threads but everyone's autistic ass can't take a few months to chill. If they literally just shut up about it for 10 months then they won't remove threads about tournaments ever They removed them in 2020 too so that's your indication that they won't ban it unless you keep spazing out making threads on /co.
Gertrude has a strong shot of being the best non-capeshit comic performance yet.
/co/‘s been growing a following for her since late last year, she road into the Tag Tournament off of it, and the double announcements of more fandubs for the later issues and new issues coming soon is adding fuel to the fire
i made my own miss co. 2021 (prediction) tier list. here's my thoughts.
(i remove "probably going to win" category due me have no idea who's gonna win)
Raven/Frankie Foster/Azula/Shego - i mean, do i really need to explain? of course they're definitely gonna be in Top 8 again.
Jesscia Rabbit/Eris - i'm surprised these two hasn't made it Elite 8 yet. Especially Jessica Rabbit, the most Hottest Cartoon Girl of all time! hopefully both of them will be in Elite 8 anytime soon.
Could go far if things go well for them. (A.K.A Girls that has bad RNG):
Muriel Bagge - a very kind elder lady and has funny curious moments whenever the monsters that Courage sees what they're up to. too bad her voice actress passed away recently..
Helen Bramley/Maria Rivera - i really don't understand why these two hasn't nominated in last year. (Especially there are over 1000+ nominations) Helen is funny and very enjoyable, and Maria is one of the Hottest Nicktoon mom i ever seen.
Miss Pauling - didn't noticed that she's came originally from /co/ (Comic) instead of /v/ until now. and since i'm a huge Team Fortess 2 fan (no surprise to anyone). i'm gonna vote for her.
Leni Loud - Honestly. she's the only female Loud House character who got the most votes to make it. even though i don't watch The Loud House that often, it's sucks to see Leni didn't make it to Top 128 last year. maybe one day she's gonna have her redemption chance this year.
Annie Bramley - if i vote for Helen Bramley, then i should also vote for Annie. she's a very kind girl to Pony, her friends and her parents. i know i heard people thinking she's a Hilda rip-off but i don't care. i really enjoy her!
Johanna - speaking of Hilda. Johanna is one of those who's really popular. but ehh, would prefer Eris but still.
Enid - Out of all Female OK KO characters, Enid is the only one who made it in top 128 multiple times. sure she's cool but since this show got booted off from CN unfairly. you see these girls rarely in miss co. (all except for Enid)
Midtier at best:
Sid Chang/Kelsey Pokoly/Dee Dee/Hilda/Anne Boonchuy/Luz/Marie - other than Annie Bramley. to be honest, i don't feel comfortable to voting these girls. sure some are cool/fun (Sid Chang and Kelsey Pokoly), some are mystery (Marie and Hilda). but i'm sorry there's no way all of them are gonna be in Elite 8. EVER!
Toph - these Tophposters ruined this character for me. it's just sad.
Maggie/Pacifica Northwest = like.. are Alphia Bitches even special anymore?
Loona - if you saw a guy who's keep putting her in Elite 8 prediction posts. you know why i put her here.
Never EVER nominated:
She's Legs Go All The Way Up Griffin - BIG FAT NO TO ME, THANKS.
Miss Dimmsdale/Princess Marco (Diaz) - What Happen you take these drag boys (which are intended as a joke) way too seriously. then you shoehorn nominated them for real.
>>437632 >>437632 >>437634 >>437635 Thanks for the feedback. I'm thinking of starting from 2018 myself but i wonder if it would be too much of a hassle and if there's even enough to work with? Still, i'll do my best no matter where i start. First i wanna get some input from people who participated in the tournaments. I wanna know what they want in, what they want out and what new i can put in as well.
>>437637 2020 are the main ones with arcs consistent enough for a comic. I’d personally suggest doing Mr. /co/ or the Tag Tournaments for a webcomic.
Tag Tournament 2020 would be the easiest. I’d ignore the whole race thing for the most part since most of the arcs did. Problem is a lot of them were tied into Mr. /co/.
For example, the Dan and Mao Mao arc was tied into events from Mr. /co/, was tied into Eggman’s arc with Jack Spicer, was tied into the Samantha-Grace-Mumbles Fiasco, and eventually got tied into Wilkins Cult arc and Bill’s arc.
The Wilkins Arc lead off of the Star and Gertrude arc, which was directly continuing off a series of RP threads on /co/ board at the time, and eventually got its paws on Zone-Tan and Amity, and indirectly many more. Not to mention the conclusion to the Tulio and Miguel arc was a response to Wilkins.
So you’d either have to pick one arc and try to condense and polish it up(Wilkins is probably the easiest for this if you want my opinion) or you’d have to do it all staring with Mr. /co.
>>437637 It really just depends on what you want out from the comic. If you want the main characters to be consistent, then /co/nrad and the judges such as Jenny would be perfect to provide commentary. Maybe you would want a rotating cast that has bigger characters with more impact, which would be the Elite Eight, or a couple of characters that people associate the tournament with (Sam & Max, Jenny , Bravo). You can just check the wiki and booru to quickly find out more about the other tournaments. >>437021 >>437054 >>437055
Depends. Do you want to base it on the vague concept of the tournament, or actual storylines from them?
If it's the latter, Wilkins is absolutely the easiest choice. It's almost entirely linear, and the interactions with other arcs are shallow. The only requirement is the Star and Gertrude stuff, which is short, still mostly linear with it, and I can provide you with everything you need. It could very easily be buffed up into a proper story
>>437657 >>437667 Well i was thinking that for the 2018 and 2019 tournaments the comics would just cover the stories of the characters with the most going on like Jenny, Spinel, Captain America, etc. While the 2020 tournaments were fill with so much i feel like to do them justice it'd be a bunch of stories leading up the grand finally.
>>437671 Star/Gertrude Arc leading into Cult of Wilkins is mostly self contained and linear with a few exceptions, atleast compared to everything else in 2020. I'll lay out all.
First, the stuff from the RP threads.
>Star's cleave removes the magic barrier seperating her verse from others, triggeres a collapse of the multiverse fabric and merging her verse with several other nearby verses that had similar events on their end. Gertrude's seizure of the heart of fairyland combined with Darkeath Deadeth's power broke hers, John Egbert's attempt to kill LE broke his, and at the center was the WarHammer verse,broken by the shit that always goes on there. A few other verses like Pretty Violent and SU also get caught in.
>Star's actions quickly attract the attention of the god emperor, who is impressed and delighted she managed to so easily wipe her universe of the magical scourges, and is intrigued by her budding sadism.
>After a brief apprenticeship where she wipes out a demon planet without a sweat, he takes her in as his own daughter, much to the detriment of his sons, who have continued to disappoint him.
>During their one day a year off from work, he takes Star to the amusement park. His sons try various Looney Tunesesque plans to kill Star, all of which fail.
>She names her space marine chapter "The Star Butterflies", and despite initial doubts, her effienct and ruthless, yet quirky and kind leadership leads to her becoming the most effective chapter in the Imperium.
>Their pink and blue armor at first attracts mocking, but soon the word spreads of their terrible effiency in slaughter. The rock metal version of the Star Vs Theme they play as battle starts strikes fear into all their foes.s Also Star casts a spell that makes cake come out of their wounds when they get shot because she's Star and still squimish about blood.
>Gertrude(Still unable to get home due to Fairyland being merged by itself and not bringing her homeverse with it) by this point has been on her own distruction spree, and briefly attempts to kill Star for her own glory and power, going on a rampage on various troops in the area, but instead meets the God Emperor, who is impressed by her immense power and perchant for violence
>While she's not QUITE as powerful or versatile as Star, and she's certainely not the best at puzzles, she's even MORE ruthless and cruel, doesn't flinch at blood and guts, and is a better drinker. Not to mention she still has the powers of the Fairyland Heart and Darketh Deadeth. He promotes her to second in command of the Butterflies, and introduces her to Star.
>Star is initially iffy, but a disgruntled Horus decides to assasinate his father, which Gertrude easily stops, killing him. Star officially takes her into the chapter as a second in command.
>The God Emperor decides to adopt her too, though due to her different skillset, instead of being a leader she becomes a solo enforcer for areas that need to 'be taught a lesson about respect", and a savage assistant to Star who uses brutality tactics.
>Gertrude briefly has a schism about dating Gilliman, but she eventually leaves him and things work out. Star starts dating a guy named Steven Universe due to their similar surface personalities, though he gradually realizes her violent and sadistic side.
>Gamma Rae from pretty violent also attracts the attention of the God Emperor due to her own violent streak and killing skills, but immediately dumps her when she kills her own team of recruit soldiers and insists she's the good guy. Gertrude mocks her relentlessly and shows her up. Rae wanders off to seek more chances to be a hero, but she keeps accidentally killing her teammates and can't get a job with any of the Warhammar cliques. She blames Gertrude and declares her her archnemesis.
>They are good for a while. There is a sweet moment where Star draws a crayon drawing of her and her dad and Gertrude pillaging.
>But eventually word comes around of a new Tyranid commander who's seemingly been sucking the luck out of everyone who opposes her and taking it for herself. Vriska Serket. "The Sp8der Girl". Star and her come at odds in a skirmish, but Star's wand catches her off guard and forces Vriska to retreat. She declares Star her rival and wants revenge.
>The family goes on a vacation. Gamma Rae(seeking to destroy Gertrude) follows them, but ends up landing in the wrong spot and murdering a family of Planet 51 aliens instead. Gertrude and Star mock her further, and kick her ass.
>The sad and defeated Rae sulks off, being found by Vriska(who was in the area planning to kill Star and her dad), who talks her way into possibly helping her, in exchange for Vriska using her luck powers to stop her from killing people accidentally.
>Soon after, the duo attack the family while they are at a lake. The battle is close, but even attempting to use her luck to disable the wand Star and her Dad combined are too much for Vriska. Gamma Rae, even luck charged, is too poorly trained to beat Gertrude, and she gets scared by the brutality tactics. They both retreat to a cave, where Vriska blames Rae for the whole ordeal, and becomes convinced if she could get the wand she could easily destroy them.
This is the last event to occur before the tournament proper, which picks up directly where this left off. I'll post that later
>>437671 Don't do anything from Mr /co/ 2020 that isn't specifically tournament results (aka don't do shit like simonfags getting the tournament banned with their dubsshit, weddingshit, generic roleplay with characters who never made it in or were out at the time, etc.) or tag-team 2020
>Jannies keep deleting every mention >Anon keeps on spamming threads to see if the host is coming back >No word from the host >No discussion even on /qa/ >Nobody is excited for either tournament It was fun when it lasted.
>>437676 If RP got the tournaments banned the mods waited a whole two months to actually not say anything about it (because they never did). It only started with the tag-team tournament and after we already had a few threads where everyone was chill. Stop pushing the narrative that RP got these tournaments banned.
>>437678 The pastebin was updated for 2021 so I assume Stats is planning on coming back. Save the doom-posting for September 9th.
>>437681 This. The tournaments got banned because fusefag mad a thread with loli/shota incest as the OP image, a mod thought it was a real tournament thread and now they think the tournaments are about loli/shota incest and will banish them to /trash/ along with the Loudfags.
>>437681 >>437685 We had Fusefag spamming porn and posts since the tournaments began in 2018. And each time despite that everything went on. Isn't it funny that immediately after roleplay fully takes over everything all threads are now being removed? Much like they allowed that current tournament to finish off then banned any future tournaments because of the roleplay autism? Very funny...
>>437699 The tag tourney didn't even have any rp when it got banned. The ban clearly happened after fusefag made that one thread with the loli/shota incest op. Also you're wrong about when it started. fusefag wasn't even a thing at the beginning of the tournaments.
>>437705 From what I remember, people were suggesting other tournament ideas in 2018 and he started to suggest the Fusion tournament. Everybody told him it was a bad idea, but he kept on posting it and then other people started to make "desu"-style spam posts (but with the word "fuse" instead of desu). Honestly, it was most likely him posting that but I don't remember him posting any porn since the threads were slow. The OP/Cap situation took place at the end so that overshadowed it. His autism didn't get revealed until the next year right before the OP broke.
>>437675 Now the second half that occurred in the tournament. Like I said, while the cast of characters varies, it's overall extremely linear.
>All of them get brought to the realm of the tournament via the hosts portals shortly after the battle at the lake.
>Gertrude and Star plan to make their father proud, and he himself makes a statement urging everyone to vote for his daughters(who have done more to eradicate chaos then any of his lazy sons ever had) and threatens extreme torture to those who don't.
>Vriska has shown up with Rae, and threatens the Emperor, saying 'It would be a shame if bad things started happening to your daughters'. He completely dismisses her threats as propaganda.
>Gamma Rae is being her usual naive self, still convinced Vriska is a hero like her and that Gertrude and Star are big supervillains. She also keeps forgetting Vriska's name, which annoys her further.
>Still, Vriska maintains her promise to use her luck powers to keep Gamma Rae from accidentally killing her friends.
>Also Wilkins shows up to the tournament. He's just doing his usual shdict of maiming Wontkins for not drinking Wilkins and making an example of him. Nothing special, though Vriska likes his spunk.
>Steven meanwhile, who has apparently been dating Star for a while, attempts to break it off on account of her sadisitic tendancies. She gleefully proclaims that, unless she's forced to take him into the tournament with her, she'll dust him.
>Steven loses. Star uses her magic to dust the entire diamond gem species, killing White, Blue, and Yellow, and leaving Steven in a coma. Garnet is not happy.
>Due to a quirk of LUCK, however, these results were actually leaked earlier then they were supposed to, meaning R1 was delayed and everyone was stuck in limbo for a short while. Not only allowing Steven to get axed, but also alerting Vriska to the fact she was about to get kicked out of the tournament realm before she had a chance to kill her rivals. What could she do?
>Rae decides to just give up, she's becoming concerned about Vriska and wants to go home.
>Vriska however, is desperate. She needs to cut a deal with someone. She recalls the sadistic Wilkins, who liked to create the illusion that people who didn't drink Wilkins would suffer by creating traps for Wontkins. Maybe he'd like to be able to do that on a wider scale.
>She explains to him she could give him the ability to truly curse non-Wilkins drinkers, anywhere in the world, in exchange for him ensuring Star, Gertrude, and their father suffer a terrible fate.
>The qualifer ends, and Vriska is cast out of the realm. But she has no intent on staying gone.
>Wilkins now has a trademark Scorpio on his chest, a sign of Vriska's power within him. He begins making larger threats then ever before, but he still isn't being taken that seriously.
>Wilkins MIGHT have been involved in the death of Mr. Stotch, rival coffee salesmen, but this is disputed.
>Wilkins DOES, however, manage to intimidate several of the villains, especially Eggman and King Koopa, who pledge to drink it as best they can. Even Belos is concerned about his power. He even eventually gets Koopa and Eggman to tell him the location where The God Emperor is overseeing his daughters preformance.
>SCAM INC attempts to get in on the Wilkins market, but he refuses, as Vriska's powers are making distrubution easy for him.
>Star distracts Garnet by blaming Eggman for Steven's death, but she finds out eventually it was Star.
>Gertrude is more concerned with the extremely angry Garnet out to kill her and Star for crippling Steven. Star let's Gertrude fight it out by saying it was Gertrude's idea, while she struggles to find both spells needed to put her down.
>Wilkins manages to impress Zone-Tan though, and even tosses her a small favor by killing Dave for her. It's implied she's getting the hots for him.
>Through this, he learns the God Emperors location.
>Star successfully dussts Garnet, and returns to the base only to find Gertrude and her Dad had suffered terrible accidents. She soon dies too of another terrible misfortune.
That's up to the end of R1. Star and Gertrude are out of the picture now. I'll do the rest of Wilkin's arc later, it gets crowded
>>437740 (While it's still technically correct, I'd probably bump Mao down a few tiers since a ton of bad drama hit Parker Simmons at a bad time. He's defintely not at the top of Purple tier anymore like he was after the leaks.)
here's my mr. /co/ 2021 (prediction) tier list. here's my thoughts
Probably Going to Win:
Courage - he lost both elders now. so he's my rooting choice this year.
Samurai Jack - obvious/predictable winner choice but maybe he'll win this year or not.
Grim/Aku - /co/'s most wanted winner alongside Jack. and i can totally see why.
Carl Brutananadilewski - i really love this pissed off neighbor fat character but unfortunately he's hasn't been in Elite 8 before. hopefully he will get his lucky charm this year.
Dan - due to his Revival planning soon. i can see why anons want him to win. (even though i'm more on Courage)
Oswald the Lucky Rabbit - at first i wasn't interest voting him until the arc happen for him. now i'm interest but curious.
Bugs Bunny - i mean of course this troll cartoon bastard is gonna be in it again.
Could go far if things go well for them. (A.K.A Boys that has bad RNG):
Mao Mao - eh.. he's not enough for me to let him in Elite 8 but if he does because of his show's cancellation. i shouldn't be surprised by that.
Scooby Doo - he has a crossover movie with Courage and since Shaggy isn't allowed in this year. maybe Scooby should take his spotlight this year.
Mike Wazowski - loved Monsters Inc and University. and really enjoyed Monsters at Work TV Series. i can see why he's qualified.
Red Guy - one day, this red devil bastard is gonna be qualified this year.
The Ed Boys - if you thought Oswald had an curse for his qualified problem. then The Ed Boys also suffers with the curse for.. ..not make it to Elite 8. hopefully they're gonna lasted as long as Samurai Jack.
Master Shake - same reason as The Ed Boys but worse.
Master Splinter - least likely. shame because he's one of the coolest character in franchise history. hope he's gonna qualified. which wasn't the case for the turtles which i'll talk to later.
Saxton Hale - like Miss Pauling. i also didn't noticed that he came originally from /co/ (Comic) instead of /v/ until now.
Midtier at best:
Homer Simpson/Peter Griffin - Fox's most memorable/popular fat main characters of all time but both show's newer episodes kind of sucks. so i'm not sure if they're good enough for qualified and/or Elite 8.
Thomas The Tank Engine/Bob the Builder/Fireman Sam/Postman Pat - British's finest stop motion characters of all time besides Wallace and Gromit. but similar to Homer/Peter, not sure if they're popular enough to be qualified (maybe they will but still.)
Bob Belcher - never seen a single full episode of this show. maybe he could be funny but wasn't sure for voting him anytime soon.
Hank Hill - not sure if he'll ever gonna be in Elite 8 again. but one day he'll will or not..
Early Round Fodder:
The Turtles (Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo) - the less likely mr. co choice yet. it's a shame because i really love these Turtles. but since /co/ doesn't care for these four Turtles other than.. Girls. i feel lonely voting for these Turtle Power..
(no "Qualifier Spam" and "Never EVER Nominated" category due to i'm more familar with ms. co than that.)
Also I should mention, mods were allowing "hype" threads at points in 2021 They ended and started removing them because an absolute faggot decided let's have three in a row after the previous two archived like it's a fucking general Why can't fucking sperges hold in their autism and realize they are the ones causing the most damage for the chances of the event happening
Hello! Excited to once again participate in another Ms /co/ tournament this year. All I did last year was voice an intro, and draw simple sketches of losers becoming Monarch henchmen. I want to do more though this year, and hope a comic character takes the crown finally
>>437752 We might be benign and quiet (when we're not being pelted by illegal spambots) but its still technically link-whoring to other imageboards in the eyes of moderation. Most of them probably have no idea what Plus4chan is, just see it as another random knockoff imageboard.
>>437762 >>437752 From what I've seen any discussion of the tournament gets nuked, which is also why linking to plus4chan got you banned... when plus4 is mentioned in stuff like the /coc/ threads, it's never a problem...
Wouldn't be surprised if at this point they'd nuke the entire tournament.
>>437762 This same discussion happened last year when "hype" threads were removed for an extended period. So really because janitors cannot discuss it we don't know if they are removing the tournament or just hype threads >>437764 If the tournament are nuked I'm pretty much going to try to stop going to /co/. Can't take something like this not being allowed but east vs west threads and twitter threads are allowed for 500 posts
In case the 4chan mods decide to nuke the entire tournament, would you like me to set up a board specifically for tournaments here? It would have larger bump limits (really the only reason this is limited is because at 500+ post threads, browsers start to lag really badly) and I could try to enable image duplicates there so the same image can be posted multiple times.
>>437769 A tournament board can work, especially if a lot happens that would clutter this board The main issue is, could these two tournaments even work on here? Tag-team worked because it always was informal. These tournaments are meant to see how /co/ feels about characters at that current moment, and don't work if you remove the intended audience via moving to another website If we have to we have to, but it won't be the same and I don't think we can "retire" winners off what 70 people off-site vote for
Your fortune: You will meet a dark handsome stranger
>>437777 The idea is to make a board that is more roleplay friendly, and indeed also that it does not clutter up the current +4 /co/. I only suggested holding the entire tournament here because we don't even know if the -4 mods will nuke it entirely or if they are just stingy with the hype threads - for the tag tournament they nuked everything. If they actually allow the tournament, then you could do something like having the tournament on regular /co/ and mention in the OP that roleplay goes to the plus4chan thread.
So it could be more like /rp/ than /cot/. Note: I can't come up with a better board name, so help me out there please.
>>437778 Most of us don't want more RP though. I'm not sure what you know about the tournament, but Mr. /co/ 2021 and the Tag Team Tournament were ugly flukes that the vast vast majorty of people involved didn't like on that front.
>>437779 So this guy's concerns are pretty valid on that front.
Also yeah, I don't really see a point in doing it here if the jannies actually had the balls to try to ban it.When it's just a couple dozen people it's kinda lame. I'd rather if that happened we all rioted until things got fixed
>>437810 >>437811 I guess I can say it here but I have the impression /co/ mods don't actually like being mods of /co/ and have no interest in comics or cartoons. I know it's dumb to have expectations of 4chan mods but it feels like a lot of other boards don't have with their mods that /co/ does.
>>437834 Without communication we're in a bit of a "wait and see" situation. When time comes for the main tourneys and they go unmolested, but Tag Team gets pruned, then that's about as clear of an indication on what's allowed that we're probably going to get. It's also possible that the banishment of Tag Team was the beginning of a larger banishment of all tourneys. I wouldn't think so, but I also didn't think the Tag tourney would be an issue. We won't actually know anything until the time comes.
>>437834 My opinion is we should just skip 4chan entirely for tag-team and host it here to preserve the other two tournaments Reasons for that being: >Tournament was removed last time, so why risk it again? >Moderators don't like dealing with the excess tournament threads, so keeping it to a month of tournaments over 2 months is better then extending that into december >It isn't official like the other two >It can be done here because it has no specific board meaning, it's pairings of two characters who often aren't even canon pairings so it's not as much of a determination of what /co/ as a board is like that year like the other two are >The whole thing is set up for roleplay, which is a no no on /co/ >The admin here really wants a tournament on this site, and it can be a yearly thing here to drive interest and thank them for holding us when /co/ forces us out
>>437837 >The admin here really wants a tournament on this site It's not a question of whether I want to host it here or not, but whether you guys want to host it here or not, and if so, how to best accommodate the event on my part.
>>437810 >>437812 >>437813 How do we even know that rioting or reporting it to mods on /qa/ will even do anything? The mods didn't seem to give a shit about Tag Team threads being deleted when it got kicked. Though last I checked, the only thing I can remember of mods telling /co/ jannies to back off was when one janny who kept deleting Centaurworld posts and banned folks for making them got a thread about it on /qa/.
>>437860 >How do we know the main tourneys are even safe at all? Has anyone made a thread on the main site that hasn't been deleted? Yes. It got archived yesterday. >Also, Miss /co/ is next week, right? 11 days.
>>437879 >>437880 300 posts (for bumping) or 350 images (after that it blocks image posts). Pinned threads can take infinite posts/images but that requires manual micromanagement. This is also the reason why I'd opt for a separate board, so it is set up with limits more befitting the content.
>>437898 >Emmy The Robot facebookfags, obviously. >Peridot she's already in elite 8 in 2019. and didn't the SU hype just died after Future is done? >Charlie i never enjoyed Hazbin Hotel. that's why i ain't voting her. >Maggie (Amphibia) fucking who? >Loona while Helluva Boss is better than Hazbin Hotel. i ain't an furry guy so no. >Trap/Drag Boys i swear if Princess Marco make it past Quailfiers again then i'm losing my mind by my anger..
>>437898 >Maggie (Amphibia) If we were at s3 and she actually got an episode I could kind of understand but I'm so fucking sick of her. >Miss Heed (Villainous) I don't think she can qualify? I'm not sure, I guess Stats needs to update the rules on whether or not tik-toks and instagram roleplaying count. >Blind Girl and anyone from those comics I don't even know why it's allowed on /co/. >Charlie (Hazbin Hotel) I just don't like her, but I would vote for Loona, Millie or Verosika if they got in.
>>437916 Sorry I don't understand your question. All of Mr. /co/, including the nomination period, is in October. If you're asking for how nominations work, Stats (the guy who runs Ms. & Mr. /co/) will open them for 24 hours. You reply with a picture of your nominee, say their name and canon, and if you get enough replies in support they get added to the list of qualifiers.
>>437933 Raven actually seems to beat Frankie in sex appeal based on the straw poll thread, and in a vacuum might beat her 1v1.
Problem is, Raven has some baggage for being mildly rigged for (though not nearly as bad as Emmy or Spinel, who she lost to) while Frankie is seen as the probable legitimate winner. Raven loses mid E8.
>>437935 Yeah I can see "taking out first seed" being a thing now after last year's tournaments. But Jack only lost by 1 vote even with all the complaining that Genndy was going to sweep the tournament (which is funny since I don't think any of his characters made it to the elite 8).
>>437950 I've been meaning to conduct a study on what percentage of voters consider things like art, greentext output, and campaigning when voting, or if they just pick their favorite character.
I personally think 90-95% are the former, and MOST matches are pre-determined the second they happen. The only exceptions are very close matches within 30 votes, or exceptional circumstances where a meme gets big enough to up the percentage.
>>437951 It's two weeks (I think TTT might not be allowed back) out of the year. I think people just need to learn to not take it seriously and dip out early if they're really upset the character they were rooting for loses. You don't even need to hang out it in the threads, just check one a day, vote and then leave. And all mods have to do is say no rping/avatar usage and it'll die down.
>>437953 Discussion of characters has definitely swayed my vote. Particularly when I don't know who either character is in a matchup or don't feel strongly about either of them. Fan art has never made a difference to me. Generally the more entertaining and less annoying people are, the better their candidate comes off.
>>437962 Not him and IDK how Stats does it but I made the brackets for Mr. /co/ and Tag Team Tournament last year, and in a case like Raven's I'd pick her most popular look because it's familiar and easy to find which would probably be her Teen Titans design. Unless Stats specifically asked for me to use a comic look instead.
>>437965 It just depends. If you're interested in how a certain character will look on the bracket, I assume he'll keep it similar to the previous year's icons/poll. https://mrmsco.fandom.com/wiki/Character_Plate
>>437951 Shitposting and autism is part of the fun. There was a purity to the first year that's never been the same though. Each year it seems to become less a straightforward popularity contest and more a kind of world in itself, with all sorts of history and system gaming. It's still fun to me though, but maybe in a different way.
Omen Anon back at it again >Cute characters like Adorabat and Unikitty always die in first round because they are against some anime lady. >Eggman loses every single damn tournament he enters (See you in King /v/ or Mister /mlp/ whichever comes first) >Spinel put in a bad light because of her fandom later confirmed that the votes for Spinel were rigged. >Emmy and her fans assaulted by Peru Facebook page but thanks to the help of Basilanon we were able to help stop it. >Emmyfans take the cheating seriously and accept the loss/disqualification to make things fair. >Skyla assaulted by racist SJWs who claim she's racist. >Minnie Mouse not only lost the first round but also her voice actor. >Henchgwen misses her gets constantly >Vintage girls Curse >A grandmother from the "Chocolate" epusode of Spingebob was given a record for the lowest amount of votes given to any character. >First OP rigged Captain America to win the game, probably making it to where everyone will never vote for him again, second OP of Ms /co/ runs away due to stress. >the Snow Miser incident >DC character in every Top 8 >Kim Possible Eternal 4th. >DoucheyOP's Shitty Tourney. >Jucika Fans assaulted just for being friendly. >Pedo/Toph fags BTFO! >Yakuza Anon never Delivered. >Caberello Curse >Mao Mao Curse Mother Fucking Daffy! >Lost to Bender Meme (2018) >Lost to Joker Meme (2019) >Lost to One More Time (2020) >Screwed over for 2021 >Black Widow, Ramses, among other characters somehow ommited from Qualifiers. >Game characters getting boot off. >Tag Tourney gets cancelled due to Fuse showing his anus. >People creating Hype Threads way too soon jeopardizing both Miss and Mr /co/
>>437990 The tournaments itself never were the issue they had, it’s the autism around it and making it a general and all that stuff. Which is why these “hype” threads get removed The tournaments are well structured to on out exist a certain time and have an actual purpose of finding characters /co/ likes, which may allow them to happen. That’s what we need to see this year. I don’t think Tag-Team happened because it had no purpose (it allowed non-canon pairings) and was solely revived for roleplay
>>437993 This. None of the tournaments were founded like that.
Ms. /co/ 2018, Ms. /co/ 2019, Mr. /co/ 2020, and Mr. /co/ 2019, were all essentially RP free.
Tag Tournament 2019 and Ms. /co/ 2020 were both mostly RP free, but in the second half a small amount of mostly contained RP occured centered around the eventual winner (Sam and Max RP, Mrs. Monarch Posting)
Mr. /co/ 2020 and the Tag Tournament 2020 were both unhinged RP free for all from the start. Almost everyone has agreed this is a bad thing.
>>437995 >I don't understand why the mods didn't just say to stop rping in that case, because most everyone would've complied. And most everyone has complied since. Danon, Mao Manon, Chrisanon, both announcers, Ramsesanon, Simonfag regrets it heavily, Garfield Poster, Zone Tanon
>>437991 Explain what exactly is so wrong with having a general for 7 days before the tournament instead of 5 days. I'm sure there's at least one janny lurking here. I wish one would ocme out of hiding and explain this. Why is it okay for disney shows to have generals while their shows are airing for several months at a time, but when it's the one successful thing that users on this board have managed to create and come together as a community, we have to be extremely restricted. arbitrary rules with no purpose make people hate you.
>>437996 They're complying with the wishes of the other participants, not the mods or jannies, whose wishes are nebulous at best. We don't actually know if we're fixing the actual problem they have, or if they even had a real problem besides the very existence of the TT tourney. I still don't think it has anything to do with the RP, but toning it down is still good in general.
>>438002 I've been collecting nomination pics for both major competitions since last year. A lot of characters I know would lose to Raven but I'd like to see make the bracket and how they fare against other waifus. I expect to be unproductive for the entire week.
>>438013 >For me it's drawing OC of my nominees. Mostly this. It get's pretty boring to participate in /co/ drawthreads that are just "draw X in Y outfit", "can I have a fusion of these characters?", "my waifu in this pose?". At least with Ms. /co/ you can have creative crossovers between matchups, a comic based on the event, drawing based on the vocaroos, prompts from various people, etc. Sometimes I wish I could just go back and draw the matchups in the previous tournaments but the event is only one week long and I can't draw high-quality stuff for nine days straight (and nine days straight again for Mr).
>>438019 All things considered they go fairly well. Naturally there are bumps along the way, but I would never expect something like this to go 100% smoothly. It's no more cursed than any other event that goes on anywhere else.
>>438035 If three amphibia girls are getting in it’s almost certainly going to be the three main. >>438036 Frankie, raven, azula. I’d include Toph but after last year i’m not sure. I’m pretty curious to see if her jobbing last year made her more low key and hence less spited or if she’s lost it for good.
Spicy question: how would ponies have done if they were allowed? And assuming no Spinel x10 rigging (which is possible). The tournaments started in 2018 by which point ponyfags were well on the downhill, but there's still a lot of them.
>>438042 Everyone would just only care for the guys tournament Ponies would be way too autistic, would make 3/4 of the finalists the top 3 seeds (which are all mlp characters), would lead to spinel-tier flamewars It's better that ironic joke of a show following is its separate thing
>>438053 It's really simple. You just stop. And that's it. What really helped me was when I realized that I could visit once a week and still see the exact same threads up as I last visited - while half the threads are the same "general" threads. There's something fun every so often, but they are too few and far between. Plus half the time I see an interesting thread, it gets deleted... or it has half its posts deleted by a janitor.
I predict this competition may end up similar to 2019 minus Spinel, just because people are still bitter about being robbed of a fair top 8. Can't really see a lot of potential wild cards on the scale of Venture Bros and Primal last year.
Maybe either Atom Eve, Mark's Mom, or Monster Girl since Invincible was a pretty big hit with the board.
>>438059 To be fair, that IS a bit off topic to discuss it there. Other passing mentions itt were allowed But yeah, if they delete it I'm going to weed myself off /co/ because there's no hope for anything enjoyable when things like east/west and the she-ra spammer are going to piss me off and actual engagement isn't allowed
>>438061 If the "but it devolves into shitflinging about shows and waifus" excuse is brought up by anyone for deletion of Ms /co/ content, it doesn't make sense because that's what both East vs West threads and Death Battle threads usually devolve into.
>>438068 >Shows fighting leads to discussion of the field. >Waifus fighting leads to shitflinging and needless drama. >For all that one guy keeps spamming "Reddit and Memey is better than Venture Bruhs", it's nowhere near the cancer of the >Chilean Facebook group that hijacked the poll for the past two Ms. /co/s, not to mention that this board has about 5 >Rei/Asuka pairings that never reach that level of havoc because people split their attention between them all. Well you got your answer.
>>438071 >not to mention that this board has about 5 Rei/Asuka pairings that never reach that level of havoc because people split their attention between them all. I’ve read this ten times and I still have no idea what this sentence even means.
>>438090 I THINK he's saying there's already lots of threads on /co/ where the argument is basically "my waifu is better than yours" and that Ms. /co/ makes those arguments worse because they're contained in one thread? But I think they're either exaggerating or just fucking lying. I can only think of Spinel vs. Connie threads (which are always made by the same anon) and Anne vs. Luz but even those arguments have died down.
>>438094 There’s so many reasons why that’s stupid if that is what he meant. But you are right. There are no rei/asuka equivalents on /co/. We’ve had threads discussing this and nobody could come up with any examples that even remotely came close. Star fire/Raven is probably the closest you’ll ever get and golly gee it’s almost like we have a rule in place that stops both of them from competing against each other this year. And if people want to fling shit over which waifu they like more than the other then I honestly can’t see why anyone cares. Just don’t click on the thread if it bothers you. Other people find it fun.
It's really going to be up to Stats, but IF (and only if) the proper tournament gets removed we have two choices 1. Host it here (likely with a new tournament board section so we don't clog p4c's /co/) and make the determination how official it is in relation to the others 2. Skip the tournaments for the year and come back 2022 Regardless, we would try the next year and every year after until it gets allowed, even if we have a new tourney host at some point. There is going to be a point where that one janitor is no longer going to be employed and it's going to be allowed again
Still suspect that fuse is the janny. The tag tournament was banned shortly after janny applications and fuse basically caused the flimsiest excuse (porn) to nuke it, and janny has been a total silent menace to tournaments since then.
>>438099 I don't think so. One one of the threads there was some of his posting (and it's very obvious when it's him, he does the same type of stuff everytime) and he wouldn't need to do that if he could just nuke the thread right away But you do have a good point that it could be one of the janitors who applied that year and is less then a year old simply not liking the tournament (or getting butthurt over a result that happened)
>>438098 I don't believe we should skip a tournament over this. I imagine participation would drop but this is the tournament the most people care about, so it's possible they'd follow it off-board or even off-site, if they can find it. I don't think rogue jannies should be able to cancel the whole thing for everyone though. Fuck those fags let's do it anyway.
But, we still have a few days until nominations. It looks dismal but maybe they're just really anal about the hype threads. It's best to take this one day at a time.
>>438102 If we hold it here, we need to make sure everyone knows it's here, which would be difficult if 4chan bans every mention of it. But most content creators are on twitter so I guess you could mention it there?
>>438105 There might not need too, I highly doubt people will remember the TTT incident as that was a spinoff tourney and wasn’t official. I’d say we wait for the actual day the tournament starts or the remaining 72 hours prior to it’s start. Plus the adult swim tournament is active
>>438097 >>438095 Yeah. Bracketing ensures 9 times out of 10 actually autistic seething matchups like those never happen. Hence we generally invented our own tournament specific rivalrys like Mao Mao vs Dan or Secret Squirrel vs Danger Mouse or Amity vs Jackie or Jack vs Simon.
>>438116 It could, I have a feeling that if he starts deleting the main tournaments(keep in mind these events attract a shit ton of people who don’t regularly browse 4chan and see it as a yearly tradition in general) there’s gonna be a lot of upset and confused people to the point the board might not be usable that day, will most certainly be mentioned on other websites and sour /co/‘s moderation even further(to the point it might be enough that mods fire the janitor for such an incident)
Everyone take a deep breath, let the [as] tournament do its own thing, and we'll come back in a few days and see what the situation is There's a chance they won't delete the actual tournament threads but simply any of the "hype" threads
>>438123 janitors are also allowed to clear report queues, so it could be that a few janitors specifically keep alive rule breaking stuff they likes, while deleting what they don't like.
there was a janitor in the win-o thread who kept posting his own referrer links to everything, the posts stayed on despite being clearly rule breaking, and any mention of it got deleted from the thread by the janitor.
>>438123 >The reason the Femboy Threads are allowed to stay up even when they break rules is because the mods really like traps
For those threads in general there's a lot of favoritism in play. Ass threads and Trap threads get a shit load of leeway from the mods in general for stuff they really shouldn't. The booba threads are judged way harder and harsher, and the fat threads get pruned on sight even when they've done nothing wrong.
Janitor's can both keep stuff they like up and attack stuff they don't. Like Homestuck.
