The characters of Las Lindas have lived in peace for years. They have grown idle. They have grown lazy...

They have grown fat.

It is time, once again, to have our forum members battle over who is the best character in Las Lindas! Only through your votes will a winner emerge victorious! Only through your participation will great prizes be won! It is time for...

:furyRandal: :furySarah: :furyTaffy: ULTIMATE CHARACTER BATTLE! :furyVixy: :steamedTiggs: :furyJoy:
THE GAME

The game will be organized into three simultaneous single-elimination tournaments, like the last UCB. But their names are going to be a little different this time around. The three tournaments are :


[noresize]http://laslindas.katbox.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2013/05/design.png[/noresize]​
Design - The design tournament is for judging the visual aspects of a character. This tournament is to determine the one that you feel looks the coolest or the most unique. Keep in mind, this does not include "sexiest" as that gets a tournament all its own!

[noresize]http://laslindas.katbox.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2013/05/sexappeal.png[/noresize]​
Sex Appeal - The sex appeal tournament is obvious! Who do you think is the sexiest LL character!? As a combination of design and personality, based on how they look and act, who is the LL character that keeps you the warmest at night?

[noresize]http://laslindas.katbox.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2013/05/personality.png[/noresize]​
Personality - And finally, who in Las Lindas do you feel was written the best? Whether you like them or not, who do you feel convinced you of their authenticity as a fleshed-out, well-rounded, interesting person? Whether you identify them on a personal level, hate their guts, or just admire them from afar, this is where you judge on words and actions instead of looks.

STUFF YOU CAN DO AND PRIZES YOU CAN EARN!

Yes! There's prizes! LL characters battle, you win!

The top two characters in all three tournaments will get a victory picture, drawn by Chalo! That's three pictures with two characters each, themed after which tournament they win in! Just like when Ambar and Hope got that fun little pic for the last UCB!

Example sexy prize go!




THE BATTLES HAVE BEGUN!

Awesome! I was really hoping y'all would do this again after I read the last UCB in the Character Archives.

I believe this year's UCB will be quite...


Explosive.

My apologies, but I forgot to ask these questions in the previous post.

  1. Will the contest only be open for May 15th only or is this a week/weekend event?
  2. Can each forum member pick more than one person for each category? For example, the main character then a runner up.
  3. For the quote and bio for the character, is that entry only limited to the one we vote for or can we submit one for each character?

1. The 15th will be the first battle. Every week with the LL update will be another battle through a very large bracket to be posted this Thursday.

2. You get one vote per battle per tournament. 1 for sexy, 1 for design, and 1 for personality.

3. You may submit as many bios and quotations as you want! We will pick the one we think is the best and post that as the new bio. We reserve the right to choose none of them, though. So you gotta give it your all!

Due to LL updating every other week, the poll will now update every Saturday instead of every LL update.

Also, since there's little to no participation in the character bios or quotations, we will be redoing those ourselves and allocating the prize money that we set aside for sketches to increase the quality of the prizes for the winners of each contest bracket.

Wait a minute...the character bios and quotes? Truthfully, I thought those were already cancelled. From what I understood, I thought said bio and quote would be selected after a character was eliminated from the tournament.

Well, somewhat of a moot point now. Glad to see that we'll be getting them weekly again.

*Gendo-Pose* I was wondering when someone would point out that there was literally NOBODY posting anything worthwhile for a character bio/headline (or anything at all) after ...which battle? C? D?
Oh well...

I think that it may be possible the contest aspect of this character battle may not have been advertised enough.
Eh, I don't think so. The giant text reading "STUFF YOU CAN DO AND PRIZES YOU CAN EARN!" in the pinned announcement SHOULD suffice. It just shows that people didn't even bother reading all of the info.
Which, again, highlights the flaws of the community :/ Lack of interest and motivation to post in 95% of the forum areas.

Unless the post was altered, In what case i was unfortunately not here when this contest started, I came in around match F i think

I hope one day characters who win a category more than once over the years get kicked and graduated to a Hall of Fame category. Results get boring when it's the same faces, and I feel like it's gonna be similar to how it always is for me: Interesting until all the big names have killed off the competition.

A valid point. Perhaps we need new categories to mix things up.

I feel like there's enough categories, I just think it's gonna follow the same semi/finalist trend as before. It's always the preliminary rounds that interest me, then I get bored as it starts to end cause it gets more predictable. Been there done that sort of feeling. If you've ever seen that Gamefaqs character battle, it's the same. How many times do you really wanna see Mario, Link, Cloud, etc? Yawn. We've already seen you're popular.
