Somehow, four thousand posts was still not enough to contain all the discussion of the /v/idya tournaments. Here's to another thousand!

Discuss the /v/idya tournaments. Unholy beings welcome.
The problem with Beatrice is the severe falseflagging she would suffer through if she actually got far.
Not really, what other male characters could you even meme about? Fucking Kinzo? It just leave us with female characters. Also George have some incel memes I guess but it wouldn't get him really far.
In hindsight, kind of funny how the three here who made it were the ones in the middle. I was right about some points but really off on others.

Welcome all to the Murder Games! The purpose of this tournament is to give any of your nominee a second chance to get a win. For each character added to this tournament, the game randomly gives them perks and items that will come in handy, although other times can backfire horribly. The game is simple, everything is a simulation where all the characters fight each other to death. The rules are simple:
>The winner is excluded, only 127 characters will participate
>The transition between posting rounds will be around 7-8 minutes so anons present can discuss anything about the previous slide
>Peace slides are posted faster
>The Elite can participate
>The last character standing alive is the winner

*blink* You're welcome, buddy. I'm just trying to give others a second chance to get their victories and also have a fun time with champions killing each other. Also to make sure to entertain you and make Zorak's victory worth it.
Can you do one for /his/?

Just because of Yugi's fails, we're going to main Yogi Bear for Mr. /co/lympus, right?

>I think his impact on indie games and inspiration to things like Undertale is worth being celebrated campaign aside
I would know, I was one of his campaigners (personally speaking OFF was very important game during my middle school years). But his run was more of a meta victory around all the OC and the alliance he was part of. I mean, Batter and Livesey aren't bad characters at all, hell I like them and their source material more than some winners and elite eight members. But they lack that *something* that would make them truly fitting champion in the eyes of many. It's an understandable position to have.

Anyway, time to abandon this thread.
Is the issue with the AI stuff the amount of it or just that it exists? I was in and out of the tournament so I only saw glimpses of it, but I was never bothered by it. Maybe it was easier to tune out because I wasn't looking at it all the time, but I never saw it as a threat to actual OC. I'm guessing it's perceived as a slippery slope that leads to that actually happening though.

*blink* Welcome back. Here is your cast. We start right now as you may already know. The new champions have been added to the cast. One issue is depending if we get another barred and Maiden/Butler for /v/ then I will have to be looking for a new option to replace Hunger Games.

Are we ready?

There was no evidence in any of Ms. Loona's posts to indicate her as being non-human! You can not find be guilty of being into animals with only a few posts on /qst/!

It was confirmed within the show itself that Loona in fact over the age of 18.

As much as I hate Trite, even I'm not low enough to label him something he isn't.

Huh, I guess this thread ended up being a waste of time as the hype bread ended up being used anyway

Okay, hear me out: What if we had a /vp/ character tournament? And instead of Mr. and Ms, there could be one for Pokemon and one for the human characters? And instead of eight, Pokemon have an Elite Six and humans have an Elite Four?
The real question is, would the jannies allow it? I mean I'm down for this idea and it caught my attention but we have seen exactly what happened with /aco/ recently. What would be the point at doing it in /trash/?
Maybe, but /mlp/ doesn't skip nominations
Oh great you made me reply to a post from a year ago because I thought this was new

So I'd like to have a thread focused specifically for the foundational questions about the tournaments.
The biggest question I want to bring up is:
>What does the tournament actually represent? Is it a popularity contest? Is it about OC? character love? a war of wills and tactics? just plain fun? If multiple things to what extent is each?
Also by extension:
>What does it actually mean to be a board tournament winner? What makes a character "worthy" to be a winner? popularity? OC? campaign? actual quality of character?
>Should we limit more popular characters/series's/franchises? to what extent?

I hope one of my many teams reaches Elite 8.

Not a bad pick but they aren't apart of the plAn.

I have the same question but for a different reason. Usually my picks do really well in these side tournaments, and I don't really get why. Are they more popular than I initially thought, is it just the campaigns people like, or is it a mix of both?

Due to deletions on the main site Ms. /aco/ nominations (and possibly the whole tourney) will continue here. Previous nominations will carry over and the reply requirement is now 7.

Since this is technically not an adult board please NSFW any NSFW pics.

It's popular, they just fail at tourney's specifically for a variety of reasons. They might have a breakout year eventually.
>DTVA is no doubt KWABOTY
Wouldn't that be Nostalgia Critic since he couldn't even beat DTVA in a side tournament?
Oh yeah, lol. But wasn't he in on some novelty pick rule? He wouldn't even be allowed in a main tournament. Maybe he's KWABOTY of /tnt/.
