CB10: Virtuous Quarterfinals, Battle 4

By Brian on July 15th, 2009 under CB10,

Battle 52I'm honestly surprised. I didn't think Otacon would bow out of the contest, but he does. Raiden knocks him out in a close one to advance to the Semifinals. It is there where he will face Solid Snake, who won easily over EVA, breasts and all. The surprising thing is that Raiden was actually the favorite here--either I'm missing something or you just have no love for techies. Especially ones who have no luck with women. No pity. So be it. Snake and Raiden will face off in the Semifinals, and now we head to our last set of Virtuous Quarterfinals. Winners here will advance to the Semis. Also, an FYI, if you didn't hear the podcast: Metal Gear will take a break this Friday and Saturday evenings, as I'll be out of town. Contest will resume on Sunday and will go straight to the end. Now, back to your regularly scheduled battling. Remember to vote at my LJ when you've finished placing your votes here. Here's the leaderboard after the first set of Quarterfinals. Nilfalasiel chuckles as the squabble continues for 2nd and 3rd.

CB10: Virtuous Quarterfinals, Battle 2

By Brian on July 14th, 2009 under CB10,

Battle 5075% of the contest is now history. 16 characters remain, 16 battles remain. And it's still anyone's game. Even though Nilfalasiel still holds the top spot, the bulls-eye on her only gets bigger as the points double again, for it is now 100 points for a fully correct prediction, 50 for getting just the winner, and 0 if you're wrong. As for the battles that just ended, Liquid Snake once again closed the round out with an authoritative win, knocking the FROG clear off. However, as I hoped, Volgin and Fortune would be close. I didn't think 1 vote would be the deciding factor, but Fortune took the win. There was no tiebreaker vote--it was tied on LJ, whereas Fortune held on by a vote on Late to the Party to take the close win. There is a podcast being recorded tonight, in which Round 2 will be recapped--so I may not get to the visual leaderboard tonight. With that said, I wish you luck in these Quarterfinals. Remember to vote at my LJ when you've finished placing your votes here.
