    Default The Ultimate OOTS Cookie Cutter Nameless Soldier Tournament: quarter finals week 1

    They are probably the least important characters in the comic. They only count because of their numbers. Their outfits and even their faces show so little diversity that it becomes impossible to tell Hobgoblin Warrior #1 from Hobgoblin Warrior from Strip #433, Panel 3, may he rest in peace. One of them will get their time to shine. This is the Ultimate OOTS Cookie Cutter Nameless Soldier Tournament!

    With the pool rounds over, let's update that picture. The candidates in the pools are now placed in order of number of votes, and the winners are placed in their next matches.



    A few thing we can learn from this:
    1: It's not easy being green.
    2: It's better to be a smiley facing right (from the perspective of the viewer) than left. While 11 of the 20 entrants faced left, 5 of the 8 who got through faced right.
    3: It helps to smile on your smiley.
    4: A good ninja wins, but draws as little attention to itself as possible.
    5: The best row to be in in the original picture was one row from the bottom. The middle row also performed above average in number of residents getting through, but they probably just stole their votes from that orc or something.

    Anyway, on to this weeks votes. This week we'll be dealing with A1 VS B2 and D1 VS C2.
    We'll get to the actually plausible fight matchups next week.

    That means our first matchup is:
    VS
    Wight versus Goblin Ninja

    The childlike shoe loving wights outperformed their undead colleagues by leaps and bounds in the pool phase. They are now facing the ultimate in sneaky. Undetectable by any horribly failed spot check and with a lineage going back to the beginning of the comic, the goblin ninja is ready for a fight.

    The second match is:
    VS
    Hobgoblin versus EoT soldier.

    The Hobgoblin warrior doesn't really need an introduction, as it is probably the most omnipresent face in all of the order's adventures. But while they were establishing Gobbotopia, their rivals were founding the not so free City of Doom. The weepies have their sad face on and are ready to make the hobgoblins weep.

    Voting in both of these matches happens by embedding the appropriate portrait(s) in your post, or by naming the nameless contestant(s) of your choice. In case of a tie the last vote that was cast before the deadline determines the winner. The loser of a match immediately leaves the tournament, unnamed soldier style.

    The deadline for this week of voting is 00:00 GMT the night of Friday the 4th upon Saturday the 5th of December. Saint Nicholas is bringing us a couple of winners this year. [/localized in-jokes, maybe I am a hipster after all]

    First Match:
    Goblin Ninja. Why? Since stabbing Elan a lot, they haven't been seen since. They're ripe for a Jiminy-esque revival.

    Second Match:
    Hobgoblin

    I already decided for the same combo before seeing the other votes. I guess that means we might have two winners already?

    Maybe, maybe not. I'm just letting them run their week, surprises happen, and the gap is not that big yet... if I was in a big hurry to finish the tournament I wouldn't have split the quarter finals (or the pool phase) into two weeks to begin with.

    I'm not, shoe wight got very popular for a bit and they have that child like innocence that playgrounders just eat up. Where as goblin ninjas did't really have personality and their jokes seemed a little less memorable (at least for me, possibly because I read the Azure city arc so much more than the beginning). Poor Weepies though, managed to make it to the quarter finals and then they seem to be getting slaughtered.





    Also on a random different note unrelated to the above, nice touch flipping the images around so they all look towards the center.

    EDIT: I'm an idiot!

    The scores are:

    IX Wight
    VIII Goblin Ninja

    XIII Hobgoblin
    IV EoT Soldier

    The wights live! Or unlive, as the case may be. Slam dunk in the buzzer. They may have punched a few goblins to get there, but the referee failed his spot check. The hobgoblins remain secure in their massive victory.

    VIII* Goblin Ninja

    The ninja sneaks in a kill as he can already see the eyes of their wights. After being dropped to second place in the pool by a last vote, this time that last vote before the deadline worked in his favor. The wights are out despite three more people pledging their support after closing time. That's gotta hurt mommy.

    XIII Hobgoblin
    III EoT Soldier

    The hobgoblin scores the most decisive victory so far. After winning their pool with a one point lead they now crush their quarter finals opponent. Loser's weeper, go home cry boys.

    The next week is already running.

    You wrote "If this post is more than one hour and twelve minutes old voting is closet." and Pyrous voted half an hour later--so am I wrong that his vote should still count?

    Oh, you're totally right. I got confused by the forum (showing my local time) saying 12 AM, it sounds like it should be 13 hours after 11 PM. That's probably why all my clocks are all 00:00-23:59. I'll edit it right away.

    No worries! Wouldn't be the first time that timekeeping conventions caused some confusion...
