here's something, there's been a huge increase in Metal Gear rising memes this year and our favourite boys Raiden and Sam are both able to be submitted again so do we suspect some powerful meme magic?
I would do anything to see Raiden take 1st place only for a new poll to be made where it's Raiden vs Armstrong

I want to believe Raiden can take it, but there's something about being a previous runner-up that makes voters take your victory for granted and stop voting for you from a certain point onwards. Last year the rest of the MGR rep got fucked over due to the franchise limit rule, I hope this time it won't apply.

People don't like it when a winner is from the same franchise as a previous winner.

Having Elite 8 repeats every year is completely fine and should, in fact, be encouraged. Making the top 8 in a tournament is seen as something deserving of permanent elite status since it's a stage very few can reach: attempting to make it a goal for all characters to reach this status at some point is very moronic, and only takes away from the merit of becoming part of it.
I say this because, among other things, people more often than not vote like absolute retards and go for the characters they feel "deserve it more" rather than those they genuinely prefer. And don't take this as me bashing the most recent winners btw (for reference, the Mr. /co/ 21 E8 had the best balance between veteran heavy-hitters and new blood), I only think it’s dumb to consider a selection better than another because it has more new members or whatever.

One of the main fighters for the ultimate Get. Was actually one of the main characters that got a quint and he constantly battled and stole Simons Gets. Aside from that, nothing really.

Unless there's a really shitty way of how nominees are listed in the qualifiers like last year all of these will make it, perhaps except Candyhack, Spicer and Ruckus who are on the edge.
The rest are pretty much eternally top-tier popular and a cut above all else, the weaker ones have missed a tournament at least once now. These are the guys who made it four times already, they'll always make it.

I wasn't as gung-ho about the Monarchposters as everyone else was, but they grew on me over the 2021 tournaments.
The Megamind shit is disgusting, but I'm glad we have it in case we ever need a strong normalfag filter.
A lot of the most memorable moments in these tournaments, Mr. /co/ especially, are born from or aided heavily by RP. Ms. /co/ doesn't lean on that nearly as much, which is why the most memorable moments from those tourneys are anticipated matches or upsets, barring outliers like 2020's Peru business. (which, as someone who first particpated in 2020, was as good an introduction as you could get.)
I am biased in favor of them because I dabble in roleplay myself every once in a while, but the only thing that really irks me about it is when contestants stick around after their elimination. Gwenpool/"Henchgwen" made it work because she was so tightly tied to the candidate she was supporting and it sort of worked with her sort of meta nature, but that was lightning in a bottle. When you let any character stick around with the excuse of "oh they're supporting this other competitor", you get Jackiefag.
