    The 6th Annual Favourite Final Fantasy Character Knockout Game

    Welcome to my sixth annual Final Fantasy Character knockout game! I have 134 characters, from Final Fantasy I to Final Fantasy XIV, and Final Fantasy Tactics all meshed in and spat out to form battles. Who will be victorious?

    It was decided from last year's game onwards that the winner from the previous year will take the year off, so this year we say goodbye to Kefka from Final Fantasy 6, and welcome back Vivi from Final Fantasy 9!

    Here's the podium finishes each year thus far:
    The 1st Games 2011: Squall, 46 points | Sephiroth, 37 points | Shadow, 31 points
    The 2nd Games 2012: Vivi, 42 points | Beatrix, 36 points | Zidane, 32 points
    The 3rd Games 2013: Vivi, 26 points | Zidane, 25 points | Squall, 21 points
    The 4th Games 2014: Vivi, 37 points | Gilgamesh, 26 points | Laguna, 30 points
    The 5th Games 2015: Kefka, 36 points | Auron, 29 points | Edgar, 27 points


    Also next year I will take out a certain "number" of characters to make room for FF15 characters that will be introduced, I'm unsure how many will be coming in and leaving the game but I will try to be lenient with characters introduced from last year's game (that's not to say they are guaranteed a place though). At the moment I'm thinking along the lines of introducing 9 characters from FF15 but removing around 15 characters from this year's game, this will make the game round with 128 characters, but we'll see how things go when FF15 is released and how the game goes this year first.

    So with Kefka out and Vivi back in who is going to win this year? Next to each character I've put down the game they appeared in, followed by position each character is in tally wise, and their votes tally from the result of both years as well. In Round 2 onwards I'll also post their total tally this year. This is all for information purposes, if you're a statistical nerd like me. If that doesn't make sense, here's what Kefka's name would look like, if he were playing this year:

    Vivi (VI, 6th, 98)

    The 15 characters introduced last year will remain highlighted in blue to give them a bit of love, mainly because they were introduced later than everyone else so are still quite low on the rankings!

    If you haven't played any of my FF Knockout Games in the past, here are the rules:

    The Rules
    1. To vote, simply check who is going against who and reply with your favourite character in each roundup, preferably in a column format.
    2. When a round finishes, if there are any tiebreakers, I'll post them up at the end. Tiebreakers are to be decided by listing them, and asking the question again about who is their favourite, the first response wins the tiebreak (eg. if the tiebreaker was Kefka vs Cloud, and the first poster to respond chooses Kefka, Kefka goes through to the next round).
    3. Round 1 has 64 fights to it. Because 134 doesn't work into 64, there are 6 battles where there are three characters who will fight for the place in Round 2.
    4. All these battles are chosen randomly, I've used a simple Excel spreadsheet and the "Rand" formula to help me make it fair and square. The only exceptions I've made is that there's no two characters from the same game going against eachother. I'm going to try and keep characters from the same games apart for as long as possible, although that may get difficult later.
    5. I'll keep these rounds open for around a week before posting the next one.
    6. Because Round 1 has 64 battles, I'll split it into four sections (so you'll see 16 battles today, 16 in the next update etc). Round 2 will have 32 battles and I'll split that into two sections. Round 3 onwards will be posted in the complete forms.
    7. Don't take this seriously, it's just a bit of fun. By all means debate why you love or hate certain characters, just be respectful of others feelings of those same characters.


    Can I also bring your attention to Shad's Final Fantasy Music Rumble, a similar game where you can vote for your favourite songs in the series! [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    So without any further delay, here's the first part of Round 1...

    Dude insane timing, I just thought about this a couple minutes ago and checked in to see if it had started yet.

    I'll have to get my music equivalent up and running too.

    Will vote a bit later.
