    It took a tiebreaker to decide it but we finally have a winner!

    Congratulations, Laguna!


    Statistics after the Eighth Annual Final Fantasy Character Knockout Game
    - Laguna from FF8 is our sixth winner and continues the streak of a new winner every year since Vivi from FF9 won three years in a row from 2012 to 2014. Four different people have won it since that period of dominance.
    - Laguna is our second winner from FF8, after Squall won the first ever tournament in 2011. He's also the fourth male to win the competition.
    - Zidane is now the only character to get to a final TWICE and not win the tournament.
    - For the first time possibly ever, we haven't got an outright leader of the rankings! Auron of FF10 is now in joint first/second with Zidane of FF9. Vivi has fallen to third. This is the biggest shakeup in the Top 3 we've had in over three years. That being said of course, Auron and Zidane, despite being joint leaders, both have never won the tournament.
    - Beatrix of FF9, who took a honeymoon this year, has dropped two place in her year off going from 4th to joint 6th with this year's winner Laguna.
    - Beatrix aside the highest ranked character not to register a single vote this year is Aeris from FF7. She was ranked 38th and as a result has dropped to 42nd, which isn't too bad considering the statistic.
    - Rikku from FF10 continues her strange trend of ranking worse year upon year, she's gone from 17th to 19th, to 29th, to 39th, to 42nd to to 43rd, last year she was 46th and now she'll rank 52nd.
    - Rydia from FF4, fresh off her honeymoon period was the highest ranked character not to get to Round 2. She was ranked 9th and has dropped to 12th.
    - As stated earlier Dycedarg of FF Tactics has risen the most places this year, moving from 96th to 75th, a 21 place difference.
    - Golbez of FF4 takes the dreaded "worst drop in rankings" trophy. Being one of the characters not to register a single point, he's gone from 63rd to 72nd, a 9 place difference.
    - This year we had 636 votes in the game, which is down 730 last year. If you guys know of other people on the forums that may be interested in this format of game, maybe point them in this direction? Some of the people who used to play this game a few years ago are still on the forums, maybe they don't know about the game still being around? I dunno.

    I've decided that from next year onwards I'll be removing the "blue font" for the characters that started in the 5th games. They've had chance to settle in now.
    New FF15 characters will remain in red though.
    We will determine new colours for characters returning to next year's games and to those joining us for the first time.

    So here’s the big table of the results of the eight years combined for the characters, and the characters in order of official rank! At the end I'll separate characters who are leaving and returning/joining for the first time next year.

    (Key: New Rank, Character Name, Game, Total Points)
    2) Zidane (IX, 169) - this year's runner up
    2) Auron (X, 169)
    3) Vivi (IX, 158)
    4) Terra (VI, 152)
    6) Beatrix (IX, 141) - (last year's winner didn't take part this year)
    6) Laguna (VIII, 141) - this year's winner
    7) Edgar (VI, 134)
    8) Kefka (VI, 129)
    9) Celes (VI, 113)
    11) Locke (VI, 111)
    11) Cid (VII, 111)
    12) Rydia (IV, 109)

    And we say hello to all of these brand new characters, initially all ranked at 129th with zero points (not for long we hope!):
    Edge (IV)
    Cyan (VI)
    Yuffie (VII)
    Cid (VIII)
    Eiko (IX)
    Cid (X)

    Cid nan Garlond (XIV)
    Cindy (XV)
    Wiegraf (Tactics)

    So that's it until next year! I'll be bringing this game back in around August time I think. But I might be back with another project between then and now... in around February time? We'll see...

    There's nothing more to say other than to say goodbye to Laguna for a year! And to say welcome a return to...


    Beatrix!

    Thanks for hosting, and thanks for the stats! I think it's pretty neat how me replaying FF8 this year impacted the outcome pretty drastically.

    I pull some off site support for my music game each year. If this happens to get back onto a May/June timeframe next year I can definitely pass people along to it as well!

    I know you're not the biggest fan of VIII, which is why I'm still surprised that you voted Laguna over Zidane. I know you replayed, but it's still a bit of a shock!
