Bahamut7's News


I hate to do this but I'm cancelling this contest. There wasn't enough interest this time around and only two characters had more than one nomination.



Introduction

Halloween isn't too far away and the Alternative Character Battle contests would like to celebrate this special occasion with a monster special contest, hence the name Monster Party. The winner of the whole contest will be announced on Halloween to coincide with the holiday. This is simply for fun and nothing else, especially when we're having a contest dedicated to Halloween.

How the Alternative Character Battle works

There are similarities to how GameFAQs' Character Battle system. For the Alternative Character Battle, you list 5 - 10 of your favourite applicable game characters and results will be tallied and the final bracket will be posted on on the 25th September. The first poll of the Alternative Character Battle will be on 29th September.

The polls will be posted on this account's news posts everyday at 7PM EST/12AM GMT. Each poll will be open for 24 hours and the results will be tallied once the time is up. Obviously, the character with the most votes will go through to the next round. The amount of characters for each battle will depend on how many entrants have been submitted to this contest.

How to submit your entrants and vote in the polls

Post your 5 - 10 favourite video game characters to this news post. Please take note that any entrants that do not abide the rules will be rejected and the comment will be deleted. For the polls, just a simple comment saying Character A or Character B is enough.

Rules

1. MONSTERS ONLY! Nominating human or mechanical characters defeats the whole purpose of this special contest so avoid them at all costs! As long as the character you're nominating looks like a monster, it's good to go. Keep in mind that the more monstrous they look, the better.

2. No license characters! This is strictly for VIDEO GAME CHARACTERS and not including characters from TV shows such as Kang & Kodos from The Simpsons.

3. No generic nominations. This means nominating zombies, bats, vampries, etc are not allowed. That doesn't mean any characters representing those type of creatures are forbidden. If you nominate something more specific like Nemesis in Resident Evil or a common enemy like Headcrabs in Half-Life or Malboros in Final Fantasy, those will be accepted.

4. English names only. To reduce confusion, character names must be what they're called in English. The only exception is if they don't have an English name due to lack of release in English speaking countries.

5. The limit for the amount of characters from any franchise or video game is 4. Your submission cannot exceed that limit.

6. If the results receive too many characters from one video game/franchise, the characters will be narrowed down to 3 - 5 and the others will be left out. This is so the polls won't be flooded with characters from a single franchise such as Final Fantasy.

7. No characters are forbidden. This is a special contest so no characters are excluded from nominations as long as they meet the criteria.

That's about everything covered. Nominate your characters right away!



Engineer!

Maybe not enough people took part in this one and I'm not too surprised but our winner is Engineer. Not only is he celebrating his update but he also took the lead for the TF2 special contest.

Next contest isn't too far away. I plan to start the nomination on 1st September so be sure to be on the lookout for that!

Kratos!

I admit, I didn't even expect Kratos to win at all. I thought he'd have been knocked out by Kefka but it seems people have praised him so much for killing gods that he took out Kefka and I thought he was going to go all the way to the finals. Nathan Drake, Alien Hominid, Duke Nukem, Pyramid Head and Terra went down along with him.

This has been an interesting turn out for the contest. We had a great variety of characters competing from classics such as Donkey Kong to obscure games only found in Japan like Rin Tohsaka. Since Kratos won, I suppose I should get the God of War trilogy sometime soon as I've been meaning to get those games since...ever!

Thanks to everyone who competed in the tournament, even if you only took part later on and didn't get the chance to nominate characters yourself. Despite that, you have been a great help to me. Infact, you all have! You won't be able to nominate Kratos next time as he'll be on the Hall of Fame list and won't be participating in any future main contests.

Speaking of future contests, if you wish to be notified for the next one whether it be another ordinary one or a special contest, please let me know and when the time comes, you'll be sent a PM or if I know you personally, I'll inform you ASAP!

And to finish it off, a different picture for kratos!
