KATBOX ULTIMATE CHARACTER BATTLE

That’s right folks. Thanks to the approval and contributions of the Katbox artists and writers out there that participated in this competition, we were able to organize this special event for you, the fan. Come out each week to see your favorite Katbox characters battle it out head to head each and every single week.

Want to help decide the ultimate victor? Then head on over to the tournament brackets hosted on Survey Monkey to cast your votes. I will post a link to the surveys each Sunday around 10:00 PM through 11:00 PM CST. The surveys will end each Sunday at around 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM so I can update the next one.

EMERGENCY CHANGE VOTING SPECIAL SURVEY

Hey there folks! Sorry for having to do this to you, but thanks to @Phuufy for catching the error and thanks to PhotoBucket for MESSING it up, there was an error in the ballet in which Farron was facing off against Farron. That was a mistake. To remedy this, I’ve added a special ballet down below.

Please vote here for the CORRECT battle there.

Alright all voted! No characters from the Las Lindas verse this year?

Also some of the surveys were kind of messed up. I saw Farron on there 3x, one time against himself? XD I didn't see Frances anywhere.

I'm guessing it's getting its own battle since it mas way too many characters.

No LL :o?


Anyways, My only problem is coming to one where it's like "I don't know either of these two so I dunno..."

Also #9 in CONTD 2 pits Farron against himself..?

Really? That’s odd. Let me check on...
And I just found the problem. Whenever I did bulk upload on PhotoBucket, it wrote over Frances and Krzzt. I fixed it now; however, just to be on the safe side…

Voted! XD

Still curious about the LL and Rascals characters not being involved. Maybe Chalo and Godai decided to sit this year out???

Hey come to think of it...No Rascals cast either. Are they gonna get their own battle?
Hey there. Yeah...i should've probably explained that in my original post. I sent out all invites to the competition and didn't hear back from a few people. If they didn't' respond by a June 11, 2016, then they forfeit their slots for the year. I sent out a total of six messages during the entire six weeks up to this event.

I know Chalo was on break until recently so that might account for him not responding. I dunno, seems really odd to outright exclude big comics like Las Lindas, which frankly is one of biggest staples of this whole site, and Rascals. I wasn't even aware that this thing would require invites. Just somehow doesn't sit right with me that they are not included. :pointsMora: :cryReiko:

I mean can it really be called a "Katbox Ultimate Character Battle" without those heavyweights?

To be fair, the Ultimate Character battle was Las Lindas exclusive for a few years before last year which opened up site-wide. So LL has gotten alot of limelight in terms of popularity contests such as these.. still would have been nice to have more contenders.

Also I know a huge factor in these voting polls is "who is the sexiest/best drawn" but it'd be nice to see characters judged on well, their character.

While I don't disagree with what you say here, the other Katbox artists could have any time requested to be apart of it I imagine, they simply did not. However, the point is, this is still called "The Katbox Ultimate Character Battle" which shouldn't exclude anyone unless they specifically ask to be. That's just my two cents.

As for this, I couldn't agree more.

I don't take any of this very seriously. It's all goofy fun, in my eyes.

.......unless all of my favorites get voted out in the first round, that is!!!!!! *murderface*

Indeed. At this point it is more like the... "Still pretty big but not quite Ultimate Character Battle" really wish I had a more witty way to put that.

I would have thought just being in Katbox, most of all veterans like Rascals and especially Las Lindas, having inclusions to go without saying... It's like having a poll of favorite Nintendo characters, and leaving out the Mario characters.

Yeah. Maybe next year, we should have the battle in three seperate categories. Las Lindas, Rascals, and The Katbox.
I dunno, that sounds rather tedious - if that's the case every KB comic should have its own UCB and I don't think we want to overload @MrAMP that much.


Yeah, I've got... Some feelings about this, I know it's not a significant impact but I'm gonna sit out voting on this thing this year :l.
TBH, considering the same thing myself. <_<
Doesn't seem very fair to the other comics participating. :pointsClaire:

Yes, the Katbox is made up of more than a few people. It's the entire community.

The Katbox members have control over their intellectual property. Most of the site-wide things we do are opt-in in order to preserve that integrity. If MrAMP attempted to make contact with creators and they didnt respond then the ethical thing to do is simply to do without. Including them anyway or waiting indefinitely for a response would be unfair to one party or another. If you don't feel like participating because your favorite is not represented then that's fine. I would prefer that you give the other great community members a chance but I obviously can't tell you what to do in this case.

Hello there folks.

I hope everyone is having a good time and everything. I'm afraid that I have some unfortunate news. Due to the recent string of conversations here that have not been on topic with the battles themselves and comments received on DA & FA notes, I'm afraid that I'm going to have to reconsider this contest at all. I actually have a write up that I was planning on posting, but I'll just get to the point of it.

THE 2016 KATBOX ULTIMATE CHARACTER BATTLE IS HEREBY SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
