    TIEBREAKER

    .... Beatrix


    It was such a close battle, that in a few days I've changed my mind. I can't eliminate Beatrix.... Sorry Ramza:/

    A few notes before I reveal the Semi Final pairings...

    - It may have been obvious but we're going to crown a new winner this year. All previous champions fell in Round 3 or earlier, a terrible showing for all ex-champs!
    - We do have three characters that have been in this position before in Terra from FF6, Quina from FF9 and Beatrix from FF9.
    - Beatrix is the only character left that's now a three time Semi Finalist.
    - We had no characters from FF Tactics get to the Quarter Finals before and now we have one in the Semis! It's been a great year for them.

    We're almost there! Who will make the final?

    Round 6: The Semi Finals
    (Key: Character, Game, Last Year’s Rank, This Year’s Points Tally)

    Beatrix (IX, 5th, 21) vs Terra (VI, 4th, 22)
    Cid (Tactics, 46th, 18) vs Quina (IX, 32nd, 20)

    It's the final!

    Route to the Finals

    Cid
    Game: Final Fantasy Tactics
    Ranking prior to 2017 game: 46th
    Ranking in 2011: 30th
    Ranking in 2012: 68th
    Ranking in 2013: 43rd
    Ranking in 2014: 60th
    Ranking in 2015: 56th
    Ranking in 2016: 31st
    Total Ranking in 2011 points prior to 2017 game: 40
    Points in 2017 game: 22
    Opponents in 2017 game: Selphie (VIII), Cloud (VII), Kefka (VI), Zidane (IX), Red XIII (VII), Quina (IX)
    Interesting fact: Wow. Sorry. Just look at who Cid has knocked out over this years game. Impressive. Massive underdog gets to the final. Never seen a performance like this in the 7 years of doing this game. He’s the first FF Tactics character to get to the final. He’s also the lowest ranked finalist of all time too. No matter what happens in this next week, he’s had an amazing tournament!


    Beatrix

    Game: Final Fantasy IX
    Ranking prior to 2017 game: 5th
    Ranking in 2011: 8th
    Ranking in 2012: 2nd
    Ranking in 2013: 4th
    Ranking in 2014: 18th
    Ranking in 2015: 23rd
    Ranking in 2016: 36th
    Total points prior to 2017 game: 113
    Points in 2017 game: 24
    Opponents in 2017 game: Y'shtola (XIV), Cor (XV), Leo (VI), Sabin (VI), Ramza (Tactics), Terra (VI)
    Interesting fact: Beatrix is only the second character to get to more than one final, the other is Vivi, who has been in and won three finals.

    Who's your favourite character? Let's finish this year's tournament and vote for the final time!

    I clicked on this thread about 3 minutes after Szczepan posted or else we would have a very different final. ;)

    Makes my decision easy though.

    THUNDER

    For me it's another very easy decision. I've ALWAYS been a huge Beatrix fan. I've always had a weird crush on her too... I'd love to play a prequel of FF9 that concentrates on her... that would be awesome!

    At 1st, I wanted to vote for Beatrix, because I like her better. But then I realised it migth be the only chance for FFT character to ever win this, since none has even got to the quarter final before... Go Orlandu, go where no Cid has ever been!



    But in the end no matter who wins this, I'll be happy :3

    If a tiebreaker occurs, it's completely unprecedented in the Finals. I've decided because of this, if it's required, we'll do a poll that will last a week, for anyone to decide on.

    So people have three days to vote, otherwise we'll do a poll

    hmmm....

    She's a constant competitor.

    She's a two-time finalist.

    We have a finals deadlock.

    ........Don't think that the great Cid Orlandu will not return. ;)

    But I'll move my vote to a deserving winner in Beatrix and put an end to this.

    Cheers!

    After Shad's very thoughtful change of vote, we never needed a tiebreaker and we officially have a winner!

    Congratulations Beatrix!


    Statistics after the Seventh Annual Final Fantasy Character Knockout Game
    -Beatrix of FF9 is our fifth winner and also marks the longest streak of new winners we've had since the games began.
    -She is our second female winner after Rydia last year. Two women win two years in a row, it's definitely a woman's world at the moment!
    -Despite still never winning a tournament Auron from FF10 is still at the top of the rankings, in fact the Top 3 hasn't changed for over 2 years now.
    -As stated earlier Cid from FF Tactics is our lowest ranked finalist, being ranked 46th as of the start of the 7th games. He does now rank 34th as of the end of the games.
    -Rydia from FF4 started her honeymoon ranked 8th place, she's only lost the one ranking in that time.
    -Rikku from FF10 continues her trend of ranking worse year upon year, she's gone from 17th to 19th, to 29th, to 39th, to 42nd to last year she was 43rd and now she'll rank 46th.
    -Rydia aside the highest ranked character not to register a single vote this year is Edea from FF8. She was ranked 39th and as a result has dropped to 51st.
    -Squall from FF8 was the highest ranked character not to get to Round 2. Despite this he hasn't changed his position in the rankings, remaining in 10th place.
    -As stated earlier the highest climb of the rankings is Red XIII, who was previously ranked at 107th and now is placed in 71st, a huge 36 places. That being said he is still one of the "newer" characters.
    -Out of the characters that have been here since Day 1, we have two characters that have risen 12 places. One is our runner up, Cid from FF Tactics, who has gone from 46th to 34th. The other is Rafa, also from FF Tactics, who has gone from 99th place to 87th.
    -Two characters share the coveted "worst drop in rankings" award this year. They are both Chaos from FF1 and Semih Lefihna from FF11, both we ranked 81st place and have both gone down 13 places down to 94th.
    -Two characters also have not registered a single point in two years in a row now! They are Fran from FF12, who is ranked 67th now. The other is Niellefresne from FF14, who is now ranked 120th. Give them some love next year!
    -This year we had 730 votes in the game, which is down 892 last year. One of the reason behind that is we have 6 less characters to vote for compared to last year but also general interest is down. If you guys know of other people on the forums that may be interested in this format of game, let them know we'll be here end of April/start of May next year again! Many thanks to everyone who voted again this year, I really appreciate it

    Cheers!

    My goal (odds of meeting it are maybe not so hot) is to have played/replayed the entire series by this time next year. Should have a pretty interesting impact on my votes, or maybe not. We'll see!
