    Thumbs up The Ultimate OOTS Cookie Cutter Nameless Soldier Tournament: pool phase 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!

    Because the brave nameless warrior is often a person of little words, I'll let a picture do the explaining:



    In week one we vote on Pool A and Pool C. In each pool you can vote for a single contestant, voting 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 first two of each pool will be going through to the next phase of the tournament.

    The deadline for this week of voting is 00:00 GMT the night of friday the 20th upon Saturday the 21st of November.

    The contestant in Pool A are:


    The contestants in Pool C are:


    Let the voting commence.

    (Contestants were placed in pools completely at random totally honest why would I lie to you by an independent person who was told to go for the warm balls.)

    Thanks to ti'esar for helping fill out the roster.

    Oh, wow, you actually did the thing.

    I always had a soft spot for random nameless extras (the reason I was able to suggest some is that I've actually been trying to assemble a list of character appearances for them), so I approve of this contest.

    horray! sacrifice voting back on agenda!


    Let's see. In D&D wights are probably my favorite undead. So even though I am not a Tsukiko fan, for pool A I will vote for .


    For pool C, I don't have a strong opinion, so I'll go with the "strongest" contestant:

    Are you going to add links to the strips these characters appeared in, or are we just cutting on "every single wight" vs "every single goblin"?

    If so, I chose wight and zombie

    In pool A, I choose Ninja, because Monkey said so, and in honor of Therkla.

    In pool C, I don't remember ever seeing the bearded devil. I like the full helmet dude, but i'll go with the Ogre, like 137ben.

    I'll abstain on Group A for the moment.

    In Group C, though, I'd like to vote for the Lizardfolk EOB Soldier, because I have a soft spot for lizardfolk. But it's got to be the Empire of Tears soldier. Despite only ever appearing in three comics, and in those as essentially just cameos, I really like their "sad" helmet design.

    So many generics, so few fireballs...

    For Group A I pledge my vote to: Their childish antics amuse me. As does their mockery of the living.

    For Group B I pledge my vote to: All glory to the Weeping King on his Weeping Throne.

    Yes. You can vote on them because of a particular individual of course.

    Lvl2 Expert, in the tournament of OotS tournaments, this one would win best graphical presentation.

    Ditto for me.

    Wights gave us wights-ordered-to-eat-each-other and also wight-in-Thanh's-boots.

    The EoB lizardfolk looks like a koopa troopa. Also, I approve of the EoB army's integration of the species.

    Group C is looking more and more like it's gonna be the Weepie and the EOB lizardfolk. Yay lizardfolk!

    For Group A, I've finally decided to vote for the wight. They're amusing and sometimes disturbing little guys.

    What browser are you using? Can't you see some of them or all of them (it sounds like all of them)? Some of these pictures don't work on my copy of Opera, I assume it's some sort of protocol problem concerning one of the hosting sites (I uploaded some myself recently, but others come from the oots smiley thread and were made some time ago by other users). So maybe try loading the page on another browser if you have one? I don't know what would cause all of them to be missing... Maybe there's a problem with viewing .png files?

    The fact that I had problems with some of the pictures is also one of the reasons I made the big overview picture at the top. Can you see that one? It also lists the candidates for each pool. Hope that helps.

    Thanks. It seemed like a good way to do justice to the large diversity the giant has given us in characters who's ironic reason for existence is limiting diversity.

    I can't see any pictures at all
    I think if someone's just written 'I vote for blah blah blah', then I can see that. But if they've linked to something like an image then those aren't showing. Actually, when I 'quote' your original post I can see the IMG links, just not while it's live...

    Shhh, don't tell anyone, but I'm looking at this while at work!
    That's probably it, we're running IE version something or other. It's notoriously rubbish and we even have to use Chrome for some of the companiy's own systems... I'll have a look at home tonight if I can, see if that works :)

    I think the hosting site for the pictures is blocked at your workplace. When I'm at work I can't see some pictures either. If you can see the IMG links, try accessing them directly; your browser should show some error message that you can't access the site for whatever reason.

    So, when the world, the universe needs saving, they appear
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones who will come
    We are underdogs, I know, but we rise up to the challenge of being heroes.

    The voting has ended, and the results are in.

    The scores in Pool A are:
    VII
    V
    III*
    III
    -

    The orc, coincidentally the least cookie cutter contestant, receives no votes at all. The wight and the ninja move through to the knockout phase.

    The results in Pool C are:
    VI
    V
    III*
    III
    I

    The western continent puts its mark on this pool. The zombie takes a headshot.

    (An * denotes the difference made by the most recent vote cast.)

    With the winners of this week known, let's move on to part two to see who they will face in the next round.

    By the way: is it just me or do all those losers look a little unhappy with the results?

    As I'm not only having problem with seeing pics, could you write also names? I missed half of votes this way, and I don't know who won.

    Thanks in advance.
