    No tiebreakers in the last round due to an odd number of votes

    Round 3 Roundup

    Most Popular Characters – Beatrix of FF9 now leads the way with Kefka of FF6 being a shock elimination in the last round. She has 14 points so far. Behind her with 13 points are Terra and Ultros of FF6, Quina from FF9 and Aeris and Red XIII from FF7.

    Most Popular Characters (All Time) – No changed from the last round in the Top 10, but Ultros is the highest mover closer to the top of the rankings. He's gone from 22nd to 18th, and may be on course to having his best tournament yet, but that's for you to decide!

    Lowest Drop in All Time Rankings – We have two different characters now who have dropped the lowest in the rankings in Semih Lafihna of FF11 and Chaos of FF1. After getting zero points in this year's game, they've both dropped from 81st to 94th place, 13 places down in the rankings.

    Highest Rise in All Time Rankings – Again a new person takes this crown thus far in Red XIII, a "blue" character, which means he only joined three years ago. He's having his best tournament so far in getting 13 points, and as a result has gone up 26 places, from 107th place to 81st. If we're talking about characters that aren't "new", then The Emperor did the best, going up 12 places so far as mentioned in Round 1.

    Centenarians - As stated in the last round, a lot of early shock eliminations means that Celes is favourite to become the next centenarian. She's still active, on 91 points, so she has 9 points to go. Can she get far enough in the tournament to reach the mark?

    "Biggest Upsets" – Vivi being eliminated is probably the biggest shock, the three time winner lost to Cid of FF Tactics, someone ranked 35 places lower than him. It's his worst performance since the First Games. In terms of highest/lowest ranking upsets, Red XIII of FF7 losing to Faris of FF5 can be argued as the biggest, a massive 61 places separated them. But, as stated earlier, Red XIII is a newer character so you could argue the result isn't that shocking.

    There are no FF15 characters left now. Also, props up to FF Tactics, they have 4 characters still left in the tournament, this is the first time they've had more than 1 character reach Round 4, never mind actually having 4 characters reach the last 16! There are also 4 FF6 and 4 FF9 characters left.

    Round 4 now! 16 characters, battling for a place in the Quarter Finals! You have a week to vote! Happy voting!

    Round 4
    (Key: Character, Game, Last Year’s Rank, This Year’s Points Tally)
    Characters that joined two years ago are still in blue

    Aeris (VII, 46th, 13) vs Ovelia (Tactics, 57th, 11)
    Ramza (Tactics, 37th, 11) vs Galuf (V, 31st, 10)
    Auron (X, 1st, 11) vs Quina (IX, 32nd, 13)
    Beatrix (IX, 5th, 14) vs Sabin (VI, 70th, 11)
    Celes (VI, 14th, 10) vs Freya (IX, 39th, 12)
    Red XIII (VII, 107th, 13) vs Ultros (VI, 22nd, 13)
    Agrias (Tactics, 43rd, 11) vs Terra (VI, 4th, 13)
    Zidane (IX, 3rd, 12) vs Cid (Tactics, 46th, 11)

    TIEBREAKERS! NEXT VOTE WINS!

    We have half the battles at deadlock, but who do you prefer?

    Aeries (FF7) or Ovelia (Tactics)?
    Auron (FF10) or Quina (FF9)?
    Red XIII (FF7) or Ultros (FF6)?
    Zidane (FF9) or Cid (Tactics)?

    The Quarter Finals will be set up shortly after.

    Round 4 Roundup
    Most Popular Characters – Beatrix is still leading this year’s competition with 18 points. Terra has now cemented 2nd place with 17 points, and there’s a couple of characters with 16 points.
    Most Popular Characters (All Time) – Celes has moved into 13th place from 14th place other than that, nothing really to report. I might move this section out starting from next year because very little moves at the top of the rankings really nowadays, after doing this for seven years!
    Lowest Drop in All Time Rankings – Semih Lafihna and Chaos have now taken over the crown again, they’ve now gone down 13 places each in the rankings.
    Highest Rise in All Time Rankings – Red XIII has definitely raised up the rankings the most this year, he’s moved up 30 rankings now. Of the characters that are not “blue”, Rafa has now moved the most, he’s gone up 12 rankings as The Emperor has been pipped slightly again (still, 11 rankings up is pretty cool).
    Centenarians – As stated in the last round Celes is favourite to becoming the new Centenarian, and she’s still going strong in the competition, she’s on 95 points now so a good showing in the Quarter Finals and Semi Finals should get her there, but she needs your votes!
    "Biggest Upsets" – Red XIII beating Ultros again is considered the biggest upset when it comes to rankings, a massive 85 places separated them. But again, with Red XIII being a “newer” character, is it considered an upset? If we’re not counting that, Cid from FF Tactics beating Zidane of FF9, is a massive shock, 43 places separate them!

    Before we go on to the next section – I’d like to mention Auron from FF10 has been knocked out in a tiebreaker. He was our #1 ranked character and has been for around two years now. He’s also the only character to get to the Quarter Final in EVERY tournament. Until now! Massive shock!

    It's Quarter Final Time! At this point in the competition we start to remove the statistics and talk more about who's left and how they've done in the past. Please welcome, the Top 8!

    Beatrix – Honorable General Beatrix is one of the most popular female characters in the tournament. She made it to the Quarter Finals in the first three years, all in a row. But since then, she’s failed to make it this far since. Now she’s back in the QFs, can she make it to the Semis? She’s gotten there twice before so it certainly can happen again!

    Celes – This is Celes’, second quarter final, and in a row too! Last year she finished as runner up, in an all-female final to Rydia from FF4. With Rydia out of this year’s tournament, can she make it all the way?

    Cid – This is Cid’s first Quarter Final! FF Tactics have done exceptionally well this year, compared to other years anyway. No FF Tactics character has made the Quarter Finals before and now we have three! Clearly this is the best Cid has done, the best he did before was his first tournament, when he finished 30th. He’s in the Top 8, but can he go even further and surprise more people?

    Ovelia – FF Tactics have had a lot of love this year, and this is Ovelia’s first Quarter Final. In fact, the best she ever did before this year was get to Round 3 and finish 25th place. She’s a massive underdog this year, how far can she go?

    Quina – This is Quina’s second Quarter Final, and along with Celes, it’s two in a row. He/she got the bronze award last year, doing remarkably well. Can he/she get to the Semis two years in a row? Or maybe even win the whole thing? Only you can decide!

    Ramza – The most consistent Final Fantasy Tactics player we’ve had in the last seven years, but he has never made it into the Quarter Finals… until now! What a tournament FF Tactics characters have had. Three Semi Finalists! And with Ramza being the “favourite” among the characters from that game, does that make him a bubbling underdog favourite? We’ll find out!

    Red XIII – Being one of the newer characters introduced into the games three years ago, this is his first Quarter Final. He’s only the second “blue” character to get this far, after Sabin from FF6 did it last year. Despite being the lowest ranked character left in the tournament, he’s still a wildcard, being a newer, fresher character. With your support he can be the first “blue” character to get to the Semis!

    Terra - This is Terra's fourth Quarter Final, and also four in a row. She missed out on the Semis last year and has only got there once before. She’s also now the highest ranked character left in the game, with Auron, Vivi and Zidane having shock exits. With your support she can get to the Semis again!

    Okay. Quarter Final time. Let's do this!

    Round 5: The Quarter Finals
    (Key: Character, Game, Last Year’s Rank, This Year’s Points Tally)
    Characters that joined two years ago are still in blue

    Beatrix (IX, 5th, 18) vs Ramza (Tactics, 37th, 15)
    Celes (VI, 14th, 14) vs Quina (IX, 32nd, 16)
    Cid (Tactics, 46th, 14) vs Red XIII (VII, 107th, 16)
    Terra (VI, 4th, 17) vs Ovelia (Tactics, 57th, 14)

    hmmmmmmmmm.... interesting pairings! The only characters of the lot that I was pretty much always going to vote for were Terra and Cid, unless they got stuck head to head in which case ............., but they didn't.

    Beatrix vs Ramza is the toughest one for me. I thoroughly enjoyed FF9, but the characters didn't stick around in my memory the way they have in other games. I remember really liking Beatrix, but not much as to why. Ramza I frequently support as the central character to Tactics, but it was more the cast around him that made the game so intriguing, in my opinion. A vote for him feels more like a vote for the game than a vote for the character in it. I think I'm going to vote Beatrix for now but might switch if Cid fairs poorly.

    Beatrix (IX, 5th, 18)
    Celes (VI, 14th, 14)
    Cid (Tactics, 46th, 14)
    Terra (VI, 4th, 17)

    The first two were the toughest choices for me. Too bad my favourite FFT character (Agrias) didn't make it :/

    Round 5: Quarter Finals


    Beatrix (IX, 5th, 18)
    Quina (IX, 32nd, 16)
    Red XIII (VII, 107th, 16)
    Ovelia (Tactics, 57th, 14)

    Beatrix and Red XIII are some of my all-time favorite characters throughout the series, so I'm really happy to see them this far. As far as Quina goes, I think it's great to see a character that a lot of people seem to dislike and find useless make it to the QFs two years now!

    so many tactics... i didn't actually finish the game. maybe i should go out and purchase it.
    I think i made a connection with celes, but quina is just so funny. she turns out to be very caring and thoughtful.
