Well there’s a hype thread for /v/ up right now, but yeah, sure.
If you want me to give my opinion, I think Soldier deserves an E8 appearance this year far more than any other TF2 rep. He’ll have tough competition though, and the prospect of implementing randomized brackets for King is very likely, so we can’t be certain if he will do well.

Yeah probably but I think it's the most likely series to have more than one character in the Elite Eight outside of Metal Gear. Speaking of which, I think Snake will make it back to Elite Eight this year seeing as he was close last year. If he just had a bit of OC, he would've beat Leon.

Doubt it, like REAAAAALLY doubt it. You can probably ask the roleplayers himself since he is a regular here.
One thing I do remember from this Ms. /co/ is Numnuts saying something along the lines of NightShift being one of the OG minor roleplayers from 2020. However take into account that
1. It's fucking Numnuts we are talking about.
2. Whichever character NSA might have played during 2020 wasn't active in subsequent years

Well, for starters, don't be a spamming faggot.
Like another anon said in one of the final afterparty threads, putting your character in the public consciousness WON'T guarantee you better chances. People seem to think being recognized at all gets the votes, as opposed to your character actually being liked. It's true that many of our champions and elite members used to be tournament fodder early on, and needed active campaigning - sometimes spanning several years - to even get close to reaching the quarter-finals stage (see Grievous, Zorak, Carl, Betty Boop, Tyr'ahnee, Wallace, Max, Xavier...), but the thing all of them have in common is that they resonate with the board either because of what they represent to the medium, or due to their history here, and have always had a dedicated group of fans rooting for them. They didn't come out of nowhere. This is not to say your literal who doesn't have a chance at all at qualifying, but it isn't something that gives instant results.

With that aside, fan-art and roleplay are the most effective forms of campaigning, with their own intrincancies of course.
Fan-art often requires more skill and is more time consuming overrall, but you can still be relatively mediocre at drawing and make good content for your pick going by other factors. Take one of the Xavier drawfags who made those mini-comics. Sure, they are not the most technically impressive out of all the stuff produced this year, but they were hilarious and made a good effort in potraying the characters effectively.

The thing is that with roleplayers, they should strive to remain as in-character as possible and post occasionally, lest they post so much that they make the thread all about them and it goes from a few funny interactions into an attention-whoring contest. This was a huge problem during Mr. /co/lympus 2020 and it almost killed the tournament. Three or four posts per thread are fine, but a reply chain running for several threads after the guy you're roleplaying as got kicked from the tournament? Well, that's a complete no-no. Hell, people might be motivated to vote againts your pick for this reason.

NEVER beg for votes; don't rely on alliances to leech off other characters, and even more importantly and especially applied to roleplay, don't drag other characters through the mud, or at least as little as possible. Yes, EVEN if it's complete in-character for well, ern, your character, to do so. Nobody likes that. The anon who rp Hades this year was absolutely delightful in how well he played the character and still avoided this issue.

Betty did get some fanart and genuine supporters before making quarter-finals in 2021, and I can tell you it was a deciding factor because some of her matches were extremely close. It might not be the best example, but it counts. Tyr'ahnee and Dominator might be the only real cases of an early exit making it big in Ms. /co/ through constant campaigning, not counting Brisby because she was apparently rigged. Fuck why is Ms. /co/ so fucking lame.

Tbh, that highly depends on the context. The alliances were quite an integral part of King /v/ 2021, it made for some really hyped up matches and the RP and OC's were top notch. In /co/, I agree most alliances are fucking shit and are mostly to leech each other off... Expect for one: The Plunderers. It is too small to even be called an alliance, It would more appropriately be called a friendship than an Alliance and it was formed naturally because Zorak, Ruber, and Silverbros were being genuinely supportive of each other and it made sense to be called an alliance afterwards.

I honestly think that Plunderers are ONLY reserved for those three parties.

>The alliances were quite an integral part of King /v/ 2021,
As someone who had Batter and several others from his own alliance as their mains, I came to hate the entire idea behind "The Schizos" and how it became so integral to Batter's campaign to the point people won't be able to separate his victory from all the autism and team-faggotry derived from it.
The Schizos SHOULD have been an alliance in the same nature as Plunderers, consisting only of Batter/Isaac/AM/Grimm aka the characters with actual chances of making the bracket with enough shared traits to have a theme around them. But of course, people were afraid if they didn't include every single Generic RPGMaker Sexyman #56 in existence then all the fandoms who had been left behind in the qualifiers wouldn't lend their vote.
A huge shame since I genuinely like Batter and the rest of the schizos are probably going to be spitevoted to hell by association going forward.

Honestly outside of the Schizos, the teams in King of /v/ last year were forgettable and didn't really help out the characters in them except for maybe Morshu and Wario, but even then Morshu has legacy as a YTP icon and over a decade of memes, while Wario is a former Elite Eight member and like the only character /v/ unanimously likes due to being a fat bastard shitlord, plus he had a dedicated drawfag.

Easy answers are John Silver, Strong Bad, Dr. Livesey, Donald, Kermit, Wallace… But for me SpongeBob was the saddest loss because of how badly he did againts Squidward, considering he had a great campaign behind him. This year was actually pretty reasonable in terms of results and upsets compared to say, 2020, where literally every single character I was backing up lost unceremoniously at some point.

Something that I’m disappointed is how little hype John Silver vs Squidward got compared to what it should’ve had. Most people were doomposting about Silver inevitability losing to squidward which greatly diminished the OC potential it could’ve gotten.

The only OC we got, which arguably the best OC for both, was a last minute OC where John Silver began to say Sundowner lines which I greatly wished would’ve lasted longer because it was funny as fuck. Shame honestly, because John Silver still turned to have been squidwards toughest opponent.
