>"Everyone must partake in the dance" Edition

Because the the controversial tournament opinions thread basically turned into a tourney general, we may as well make it a straight up general thread instead of pretending to make random threads into one.

Don't forget TF2 comic and animated media used to justify Scout's schizo campaign. Something about schizo stuff brings about so much /v/ autism.

This is oddly enough, a King /v/ only problem.
The only character outside of King /v/ that won through the retarded power of friendship was Zorak with the help of the plunderers and /co/nquerors. Even then, it wasn't due to the fallen defeated opponents coming back to help zorak, it was support from a measly three to five characters who jobbed in round 1 and 2.

King of /v/ for some reason has a boner for characters that behave like shonen characters. My personal theory for why this is might boil down to the end-game hype and fallen opponents campaigners jumping ship to the proceeding contestant who won which gives it more power and hype in turn.
Then, to feel included these artists use the "power of friendship" to include characters that jobbed a few rounds prior.

So, what's the absolute WORST tournament crowd? I want to see some spicy takes
>The Spitefags that don't particularly desire to see a character win, but rather want to ensure you lose. Will often use REALLY stupid excuses "they're a solo campaigner, they're a /tnt/ pick"
>The Silentfags that don't discuss the source material, don't roleplay, don't post art or make any, only vote in a way that doesn't at all reflect thread hype or energy
>The Campoogner crowd inverse that cries that you HAVE to vote for their characters just because they have a lot of art and the tournament is literally over if they're voted out, even if you've personally engaged with the source material and disliked it
>The LJN (Laughing, joking numbnuts) crowd that put in entirely insincere or out-of-character picks "Because it's funny", don't actually care about the source material, only thread-derailing memes. Not because it's humorous source material, mind you. But something divorced entirely from the source (Alex Eagleston, Battler, Jpeg dog, Jack-off, Jimmy Neutron "this guy has really bad stuff in his computer", etc)
>DBS derailers
>DTVA derailers
>The "hype" crowd that will propel absolutely anything regardless of how good it comes out to be "because it'd be EPIC" (Duck Match) or a character being perceived as an "underdog" just automatically makes them better

Well because people weren't exactly contend with losing to a character who was 90% of the time up to the E8 carried by a single artist and that was hyped to be this absolute unstoppable powerhouse. Grimm in perspective was the more respectable contestant to lose to as it was a joint effort.

I still hold the opinion that Wario's biggest advantage over Eggman was the fact that he had better hopes of diversifying further in terms of vocal support. As time goes on, it unfortunately becomes clear that Eggman is a surprisingly quiet pick despite how many anons do love him. I'm not certain Wario could have quite beaten Grimm considering the sheer power gap between the top and bottom parts of the 2023 bracket, but he didn't have as obvious an Achilles' heel as Eggman did.

Maybe hard opinion, but the roleplay alone didn't get Zorak a win nor any alliance did.
The roleplay got him to a certain stage, but what sealed it for him was a very smart strategy once he got there of trying to tie in the character's importance to AS and later adult animation and humor, as well as pity voting with C. Martin Croker. Very smart move that sealed it for him

Someone already said it but the short version of it is timing. Ms. is the first tournament and that's when all hell breaks lose. Spitevoters and funposters have been waiting the whole year and we know how Ms. is ruined since 2019 and why. King happens at the very last time and people are getting really tired. That's when people will have the mentality of "burn it all down" and do the most craziest shit imaginable and there's just no time to cool down. Mr. and Queen are just chill as hell in comparison.

>THE original Final Fantasy antagonist
>THE classic cheesy cartoon villain of the 80s
>THE first big modern indie girl or THE beloved robot girl in gaming

I'd add a category: troll/chaosfag. Just wants to start shit, see the tourney burn. May or may not actually be engaged with any character but that's besides their main pointwhich is agitating and demolishing.

Worst to fine:
>Riggers
Obviously the worst I think. Literally destroys the tournament fundamentally. Justifies host paranoia. Ruins characters.
>Trolls/Chaosfags
Probably a lot of crossover with riggers, spitefags and meme fags.
>Spitefags
Yes, they're annoying and can make the tournaments ugly and unfun. Thrive in ms. /co/'s especially.
>campooner
The worst thing out of the meta-tization of tourneys. Basically wants to turn main board tourney's into some kind of /general/ wank. Been calling out this attitude since 2021.
>meme crowd
It's gay and stupid but I think largely falls in with trolls/chaosfags and some people wanting to spite the whole tourney cause their picks lost (Johanna and Jack Frost were largely used for this purpose).
>hype crowd
Stupid and short-sighted but not malevolent, just annoying. Worst thing they ever did was jack-off.
>DBS
Sometimes annoying, whatever.
>DTVA
At least they're relevant in some tourneys. At this point MDfags may have surpassed them in annoying fandom.
>silent majority
Complaints about silent majority were always on a level weird to me. It's literally just the casual voterbase. Of course it exists and of course they will go with the popular and "obvious picks." You should expect it. Like some others have said it's an appropriate filter that still makes it a board tourney and not some circlejerk. There are annoying examples of perhaps 'unworthy' characters getting through because of them but ultimately I think it's better a winner lean more into silent majority than meta crowds. The first two year tourney's were basically ran with majority standard taste and the winners (sans Spinel) are still considered pretty universal and top-notch.

Soldier is unironically the most fit TF2 character to win King /v/ in any capacity. He’s funny, entertaining, has had a campaign on par with scout, is actually schizophrenic, is the most well liked class in TF2 and he has the best theme song in TF2.

Tom and Grievous are the stealth most significant winners. Tom was the first 'underdog' push and no surprise his tourney coincided with the first mass rpfest and establishment of thread personalities. Grievous was the first campaigner champ who's thread activity went over an established "obvious" powerhouse and his win signified and immediately preceded what was to be the /v/ 2021 tourney's.

TF2 mercs all are inheretly very well designed characters with their own merits to why they deserve to be good characters to proceed to E8 or take the crown. Some however are better than others.
>Scout
The illiterate boston boy has consistently been a good pick and had a damn strong and good campaign alongside it. Probably the most vocal character. Has already made it to the E8 twice but I don't see him as a contender for the crown.
>Soldier
Actually a well rounded character. As said, he's entertaining and has had a very good campaign to go with it. Really deserved to proceed much more and is one of the TF2 mercs that is deserving of taking the crown due to its well likeness.
He's also the TF2 merc with the highest seed ever at the 5th seed.
>Pyro
The actual schizo of the TF2 roaster and at the same time the most bland one. He really is a mystery and we don't know a lot about him but he is entertaining in that regard of mystery and his schizophrenic antics. Although a disliked by the playerbase for W+M1
>Demoman
Can be on the same level as the soldier but he's never qualified. He's a drunk black scottish cyclops, he possess a sword that speaks to him and he is a demolition expert that is surprisingly rich as fuck. Also liked by TF2 playerbase for having two entierly different playstyles within the class.
>Heavy
The textbook definition of a silent majority pick. He's always been the highest TF2 seed within a tourney and has made it to the elite two times. He hasn't really had a campaign or any support whatsoever but he's also ironically the TF2 merc deserving of the crown for basically being the face of TF2 and legacy to countless memes. Also loved by the TF2 fanbase.
>Engineer
Engie is always for some reason the character with the shittiest memes possible but with the highest potential for a good campaign too. The most played class in TF2 apparently.
>Medic
Is the merc with absolute highest potential for OC and campaigning and legit disappointed he's never even qualified once. He's a batshit insane doctor who somehow makes the most infuriating and stressing class to be enjoyable to play. TF2 fucking worship medic mains as god among men as the class is very rare to come by.
>Sniper
Entertaining but not really E8 material if being honest. He has more character than pyro but that's it, he throws piss at people which is funny. He's fucking despised by the greater TF2 fanbase for being a class with little to no downsides.
>Spy
Never actually understood why Spy is the most commonly third qualified tf2 rep in these tourneys. The character is sure interesting and annoying at the same time, but he's hardly if ever had any type of support regarding his runs which doesn't workout like Heavy where there's some inherent support towards it. I do find spy kinda infuriating because he takes the slot of what usually would've been the more interesting and active TF2 pick from entering these tourneys.

Spinel was actually my first thought outside of the obvious inaugural winners. The biggest argument against her is that a lot of her impact was specifically on Ms. /co/, but she's often associated with the tournament turning into one of the least well-regarded in terms of general results to come out of it. Add on her being the face of the FOTM rule and just changing a lot of general tournament expectations going forward.

Batter isn't AS high as Spinel for me, but he's going to rank high just for his direct affect on King of /v/ the following two years, and honestly just for his unprecedented amount of OC.

>>110618
I would actually argue Recette goes lower than Batter just because she wasn't as instrumental in Queen of /v/'s outcomes the next two years. 2021 in general was a fluke year, so even if the more traditional winner of Madotsuki had won there would have been some lingering effects going forward. Recette wasn't even the one to directly take down Midna despite being in the same part of the bracket. Still an important character, but I feel she's just Batter Lite at best.

Waifufaggotry is super strong in the animation medium. /co/ is way worse than /v/ and /a/ is way worse than /co/. But at leasy half the reason is honestly probably Spinel jacking up the standards so early. There's probably something to it being the first tourney too, so being the big autism release valve and host retardation testing ground.

Here's an interesting question: is King Harkinian more of a /v/ pick or a /co/ pick? Everyone talks about the CD-i cutscenes, but think about it. He's directly taken from the king in the DIC cartoons, and even in the CD-i games he's only featured in the animated cutscenes aside from a simple sprite appearance at the very end of Wand of Gamelon. That's not to mention that YTPs are more adjacent to animation overall.

I don't know why people try to push this when AM has had one of the most in-character and non-meta campaigns. A power of friendship push would make zero sense for him when he's objectively one of the most evil characters to be in the tournaments, if not the most evil.

At this point I believe the last three winners being part of the schizo alliance is a coincidence - /v/ doesn't actually have any favoritism for "schizo characters" or whatever, the reality is that a good chunk of Ko/v/ voters are just easily enticed by epic power of friendship storylines.

The Judge is written by the legendary author Cormac McCarthy in the novel Blood Meridian where he serves as the main antagonistic force of the book. He appears randomly throughout the novel, in places you’d find most inconvenient or convenient.
The OP image describes the end passage where the Judge says everyone has to be the part of the dance, a metaphorical call to the cruel and chaotic cycle of war and life. And a fitting image for discussions all around.

Serious explanation:
1. The whole Anton-Loli debacle
2. Hyped up /lit/ contestant

In the controversial opinions thread, an anon who avatarfagged Anton from No Country for Old Men for some reason was mad as fuck, although at first for a good reason, then he just went on a tamper tantrum and began to rabble random sentences like "diet-loli". His first complaints were kinda reasonable, people were ignoring a fundamental problem within Queen /v/ which was the obvious lolicons who voted for the characters just because they're little girls. This in turn made a few well educated anons summon The Judge, a character written by the same author who is a notorious pedophile and pederast, among other things. Thus Judgeposting is usually brought up when there's some sort of drama going around regarding lolis.

The judge is also an incredibly hyped up character for a potential /lit/ tourney, of which was suggested by a namefag that went by "TheJudge" to be hosted who initially wanted to host a loli tournament but everyone voted for no. We also have a slight idea on how well-received Judge Holden is as the book, Blood Meridian is consistently on the top 10 best books of all times on the /lit/ yearly polls. Last year it even rose to the top 5 best /lit/ book of all time.
Many say that the judge would be an analogue to AM. They're very easy to draw for OC, they're very fun characters to campaign and roleplay, and they're legitimately some of the most well written antagonists to ever grace any media.

Both Garland AND Grimm are guilty of it, again the real problem goes back to that post mentioning the double-standards "schizo alliance" (or "Discord alliance" by this point, since it's all just pet picks of a black souls discord). Wuya was initially liked as a winner yet SLAUGHTERED for MAYBE being rigged by NSA, when we know she doesn't have as much power as people fearpost considering her tantrums over Zim, Bayonetta, and Wesker losing. Meanwhile schizos have actual, verifiable proof of the previous two kings being Spinel-tier riggers, but it's "okay" because shonen circlejerks from shitty "games" are apparently better than actual video game characters. It's all so tiresome.

I wouldn't say it was swept under the rug because it was basically all that was talked about for a good couple weeks before The Fall of NSA started, the reason it's not talked about anymore is because after all the extensive deliberation about the matter it's still completely implausible Eggman would have beaten Grimm even without discord trannies trying to brigade, the vote gap was just too high (and we still don't know how many votes were from SHITcord, unlike spinel where it's pretty obvious the number of votes the peruvians were stuffing for spinel just based off qualifiers alone). Besides not knowing how many votes were a result from shitcord there's also shit that further muddies the water like said shitcord also having people saying they voted for Eggman, the seeming inactiveness of the server, etc. Now there's also the maybe of the John Ward match which was a lot closer than Eggman, but again without any clear sense as to whether there were 10 votes from shitcord or 100 votes from shitcord, it's hard to draw any real conclusions other than that discord trannies should hang themselves immediately.

I don't know why people are forgetting such a debacle that just happened a few months ago, but the short gist of it was that the discord rigging happened way late into the tourney and there weren't enough people actually change the outcome of the votes either way.
We still have the discord server btw, we know how many people even gave a shit Like 20-30 at max and the maximum ranges that people have implied to have rigged was 79 votes (which turned out to be a reference to a meme). They also turned out to basically be a /v/ lounge for off-site users.
The only match that could've been changed the results for grimm had the discord not deployed the "79" votes, would be John Ward. Scout and Eggman still lost to Grimm, and this 79 vote statement was made when Grimm was matched with Eggman for this reference
You fool, I have 70 alternative accounts!youtube thumb

The actual amount of people that were visibly supporting and being active within the discord server was less than 30 unique individuals at any given time.

In short, even if we highball it at around 100 votes from the mostly inactive server, maybe Grimm vs John match could have been affected. Someone said the server also rigged since Garland and got him to win, but somehow it couldn't get Grimm past round 2 in 2022 or Alice past round 3 in 2023.
It could also be that the server did jack shit like that vote link in /vg/. Moreover this was clearly someone trying and succeeding in starting shit up. Blatant and obvious falseflagging and samefagging in the final afterparty thread made that all the more obvious.

I would say 32 characters actually is a relatively small selection. Sure, maybe admitting to only truly liking two contestants out of a 128-man bracket would be weird, but that on its own doesn't speak about someone's attachment to the medium in question, if anything and on its own, it just signals possessing different, more strict standards.
You also have to consider that most people with irl responsibilities can't fully alter their weekly schedule to allow themselves to be active in the threads for entire days, and sometimes that only leaves them with enough time and energy to campaign for one or two characters they REALLY care about.

My point being that I definitely don't think campaigners with specific tastes are below riggers, spitefags and trolls in any way. Here's a good reminder that nobody is entitled to free content/art created by other people with the express purpose of having FUN.

You have consider the demoralization part of the aspect. When you're trying hard to support one singular pick you're trying so much to support, only for it to lose unceremoniously, it demoralizes the supporters. Sure they can jump to their side-pick but when that loses too, it completely breaks them most of the time.
Ms. /co/ 2023 was for some reason really prevalent with this one. I for myself had to switch four different characters from qualifiers to round 3 until I just gave up and observed. I saw people having their entire pick lineup be slaughtered in the first and second round. When that happens, it isn't their fault they're not trying to campaign further.

What I prefer to do, and what I think other people should at least consider as an option so their other favorite characters don't get spited for being "silent", is to focus all my OC on one character but still vocally support the other characters I like by talking about them in the threads and why people should vote for them. Just something simple like "here's a list of reasons why x is a good character" or just sharing funny/cool scenes and images of the character is a great and honest way to campaign without busting your back pumping out OC. And you can easily do it for several characters at once!

There’s a pretty obvious contrast between people who have ideals of duos just in context of the duos themselves and those who really just support this one singular character and try to find anyone to match with them so they can wualify and then campaign as/for said individual character. The later are weaker teams because you’re trying to force a character into a team as opposed to there being a natural and obvious connection between two that makes sense nominating. The Elite 8 ban being teams only and not characters particularly exeplifies the issue

The reward for winning Loser's Bracket is being guaranteed for the top 128 the next year, which is a stupid reward because if someone is able to win Loser's, there's a very high chance that they can easily qualify the next year.

I had this viewpoint since the King /v/ ended but wasn't sure to say it until I rechecked the archives and I am currently confident to say Eggman had a more entertaining and interesting matchup with Geralt than it did with Wario.

Let me say this first, Eggman vs Wario wasn't even close towards being a bad match. It was a kino matchup with a lot of hype, OC and drawfagging and it saw two of the most prominent drawfags clash at a battle of pencils. It was a comfy and kino matchup but Eggman vs Geralt on the other hand was way, way, WAY more entertaining and enjoyable for differing reason. It is the only match up that actually made me kek multiple times even on a re-read through the archived threads. The Geralt greentext straight up sent my sides to the stratosphere and Geralt was actually beating Eggman in thread presence in most of the round, Hexanon also did the most OC for Geralt out of any Eggman opponent totaling at 15 OC pieces, so it wasn't purely a writefag thing either.
The reason why I am writing this is because someone said that Wario vs Eggman was the best non-E8 matchup out of any tournament this year and I had to digress. Wario vs Eggman actually did have absolutely kino OC and comfy, but it wasn't as entertatining and funny as Geralt vs Eggman was.

The power of friendship trope within the tournaments is way overblown out of proportions due to newfags and revisionists trying to think it was this thing that started with Batter which... It did but it also didn't?

Batter contrary to popular belief wasn't carried exclusivity carried by the schizo alliance in every OC piece. It was a big push, sure, but Batter doing it solo still accounted for a vast majority of the OC and campaigning. The only thing that Batter really got in terms of "power of friendship" was the cape of Grimm and Glasses of Spamton. The former usually not even included. The glasses were also included to add coloration to Batter as he was very plain and easy character to draw.
Schizo Alliance was a big push towards what helped Batter win, but it wasn't exclusively the schizo alliance that made him win.

Jack Garland is what I believe really started the Power of Friendship bullshit and the whole paranoia with it. At that time, King /v/ 2021 was basically considered the best tournament to ever be hosted still is somewhat and King /v/ 2022 was trying to recapture the spark. Garland was the obvious choice as he was hyped up since the start by defeating two fellow chaos destroyers and inheriting two weapons of them instantly, which then also changed the poll picture for each subsequent round. This was the definitive power of friendship bullshit moment, it was purely done to recapture the King /v/ 2021 fire which in hindsight didn't age well at all. The jack-off happened and we all know how it goes.

Grimm on the other hand... Is also very much a perpetrator of the power of friendship... But he's a special case because this is literally how he summons friends and allies in Black Souls 2. When fighting the end-boss, grimm summons every ally, foe and friend he's meet in his path to bring the boss down. It is cheesy but it makes sense why it happens in Black Souls 2 if you've played it but I am not going to spoiler it.

TL;DR Batter had plenty of OC where he did rounds solo without the help of schizo's and Garland is most likely the source of Power of Friendship paranoia.

I think the stupidest thing about Jack-Off was how early on in the tournament, people talked about an idea of Garland transforming into Chaos if he made it to the finals like what happened at the end of Stranger of Paradise, and then by the time the finals hit, his last opponent is a force of chaos.

This could work seeing as Raiden gets new weapons in MGR after beating certain bosses, although it's because of Doktor making them out of data rather than as a gesture of respect outside of Sam. I don't think the idea of someone using weapons or items from their past opponents is necessarily a bad idea, it just depends on the execution and the characters involved.

I don't think Battler was a bad candidate only towards the ending of Loser's Bracket. I do enjoy his funposts in moderation and his campaign made me kek several times. His matchup with 47 was lackluster which I can kind of understand since it was a 4 way match rather than a more 1v1 experience. I can also get why this would anger some people because it was thematic bs for TFRfags but he was doing fine during main and lost fairly to #1 seed by >1VOTE lmao.

Most doesn't really care about tournament results after everyone they were interested in are out. Not all of them is done good, but it's whatever. I really enjoyed ones that utilise deflated opponents as slaves: Hat Kid in previous year ( even if it doesn't make sense) and Eggman's robotisation in 2021. I would do similarly if I could actually draw.

I'm wary of anything that lets characters who lost stick around, as it opens the door for attentionfagging and other funposting. plus I don't think shonen bullshit could ever work on /co/ because the voters there value a character's individual merits more than the narrative around them. you can make friends, find love, and sway the voters of the opponents you defeat to your bandwagon. but in the bracket, you stand alone.

Funnily enough, the character that is analogous to the Judge in /a/ in Yujiro Hanma. They’re unnatural and uncanny humans bordering on being demonic. They’re completely in control in every room they’re in, unstoppable forces of nature that puts fear even in the most deranged and brave hearts. They venerate savagery and cruelty, they philosophize what’s right and wrong in their off-set morals and kill just because they’re felt like that for the moment.
Yujiro also raised Baki in near shocking similarity to what the Judge said on how to raise a child

Yujiro's big lacking point is the uber intellectualism and eloquence. For me the best /a/ equivalence is Johan.
But then conversely you miss the overwhelming purely physical presence.

He most certainly would respect him in the same manner he did Musashi, of which the Judge would not really care. Yujiro would also see the Judge as competition which would end up in both of them squaring up. Who’d win is entirely up in interpretation of what the judge is.

It's more than that. Ultimately, Monster has Johan confront his Nihilism, as the story's conclusion emphasizes him to be more than simply a force of nature but a person whose humanity was buried deep inside him.

Yujiro is one of my safest bets to do well in Villains of /a/.

How is it possible that one of the oldest tripfags on this site is also one of the worst, you'd think time would have pruned his shittier opinions and his attention whoring habits, but no.

Ironic lolicon is a meme. Diet loli is something I haven't seen used on any board.
