Channel your inner nerd! SRK BATTLE POLL IX OFFICIAL THREAD (Matches ready!)


#1

It’s that time of the year again…and again…and again!

Lantis Productions of Unneccesary Bandwidth Waste proudly presents the Ninth Annual Battle Poll! We welcome you all to this clash of wits and fanboyism, and hoping we enjoy your pointless rants and amusing propaganda!

For those of you who want a recap of how this shit is played…let me break the news (and by breaking the news I mean I invoke the powers of COPY/PASTE):


MIRACLE STOCKS

Each time a character gains 5 votes, they earn a miracle stock (noted as a * in vote tallies). These stocks can be ?broken? (via a miracle stock break) to gain extra votes for your cause. So, therefore, if your character has 10 votes, that means you have 2 miracle stocks, and if you decide to break these stocks, you will then have 12 votes. I guess that?s as easy as you can get.

Like I said earlier, if you break stock and pass through a technical miracle stock limit (5, 10, 15, 20, etc.), you will NOT gain another stock from it. So let?s say your character has 18 votes, thus having possession of 3 stocks, and you decide to break all 3 stocks. This will increase your vote count to 21, where you will technically would have gained another stock since you surpassed 20 votes already. However, since this was achieved via miracle stock break, another stock will NOT be granted in this scenario. This also goes for stored stocks.

On the other hand, the use of assists/skills/Leader Moves WILL grant you stocks.

This year, miracle stocks will NOT be saved for use in later rounds. If you have an exceeding amount of stocks by the time the match ends, those stocks will automatically transfer to SP (see below), and all remaining stocks will automatically disappear.

ASSISTS/SKILLS/LEADER MOVES AND THE SKILL POINT SYSTEM

Unlike previous Battle Polls, the whole assists/skills/the new Leader Move system will be ruled by a given number of skill points granted to each team (NOTE: EACH TEAM, not each member). Each team will begin with 20 skill points. Using any of these abilities will cost SP.

Assists (which involves your other teammates using a special ability to aid your current character in battle or even foreign characters) will cost 3 SP.

Skills (which consists of your character doing their own special move in battle) will cost 4 SP. Skills can only be used by the characters in their own matches, not in others (unless they are already dead).

The Leader Moves are moves only granted to the leader of each team. I will attempt to make these moves better than the rest (and probably nerf the assists and skills in the process) because hey, they?re supposed to be powerful! But of course, the price comes in hefty: 5 SP a pop. Again, this move can only be used in the leader’s matches (unless they are already dead).

You can also replenish skill points, of course. By using 2 miracle stocks, you can recover 1 SP. This can happen only after the match, though. You can also NOT exceed 20 SP, as that is the highest amount allowed in this BP.

When a character dies, they can do one last move before they disappear completely. As such, if a character is dead, you can use either their assist, their skill, or even their own Leader Move to assist another character ONLY ONCE. That means if you decide to use the dead character?s skill, you can?t use their assist or Leader Move ever again. The final huzzah before they drop, as you may say.

Please note that when a character is dead, they can use their skill, assist, or Leader Move to assist other characters, regardless of their usage when they were alive. So, you can use a dead character’s personal skill as an assist, and the same applies with Leader Moves. There will still be a SP cost, though.

Please note that you must be SPECIFIC about what move you’re using at the time you’re calling it. Like, for example, if you say “Ryu assists Ken”, then I will AUTOMATICALLY assume you’re using Ryu’s assist instead of his other moves (in case Ryu is already dead). You could at least have the decency of remembering your character’s moves before you do it.

Vague statements like “I use all my SP” or “I use all my moves” will NOT be tolerated and will be promptly ignored.

VOTE TALLIES

Please, please, PLEASE stop changing votes midway down the Battle Poll. A hour or so between switches is OK, but don’t vote for some character and then change it at the end of the day. That’s just gay (wow, it rhymed!), and messes up with stock breaks, skill effects, and the such. It can be considered OK if there is not much activity on both sides (no stock breaking or skills used by anyone), but if I see you acting like a lady again and not making up your mind, I’ll just make sure the original vote STANDS and give a vote penalty for the switcheroo.

SUDDEN DEATH

When a match is tied at the end of the final tally, a sudden death will be invoked. During this sudden death, users who have already voted CANNOT vote again, but they can use their assists to determine the winner. Anybody who hasn’t voted on that day can vote to determine the winner but they also MUST vote for the other matches (regardless if their outcome has already been determined).

Likewise, if the participants still have stock left (or wish to break a stored stock), they can do so to determine the winner.

CLOSING TIME

(…that reminds me of a song…)

All polls will be closed at midnight CENTRAL TIME regardless if I appear to close them or not (votes at the brink of time are accepted, any action starting from 12:01 are INVALID). The time stamps will be adequate references for this. Please do schedule your appearances before time, OK?

ALL VERSION RULE

This one has caused quite a headache among the years?.

The all-version rule will ONLY be allowed for those characters who have alternate versions that don?t really break the character?s balance. For example, it is OK to pull out the Evil Ryu card if you pick Ryu because Evil Ryu is really just normal Ryu with a bad hormone day. However (and this mostly applies for comic book characters), if you happen to pick someone with a devastating alternate self (Gambit, Iceman, Cable, whoever), you WILL only oblige for the regular version of the character and not to his overpowered self.

AVATAR RESTICTIONS

There will only be ONE team-related avatar per user during the BP, with another avatar enabled after Round 3 (considering your team makes it that far). You can have other users sport your avatars if you have the resources to do so.


Let me be perfectly clear about something, though:

NO MUGEN GAMES WILL BE INCLUDED!

This will also include fan-made games or flash games you find on Cartoon Network or Newgrounds. There was much controversy surrounding a game called “Charles Barkley: Shut Up and Jam Gaiden” last year, and I let it slide, but not this year! You can, of course, pick a character from whatever game and then say “Oh, you saw this new fanmade game they made about X character? He can throw nuclear pancakes in that one!”. You can probably roll with that for the remnant of BP, but PLEASE pick a character from a normal game like normal people do.

There is also one general rule in order to participate in this ish: YOUR ACCOUNT MUST BE AT LEAST ONE YEAR OLD TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR ENTRY That is, only September 2009 and earlier registration dates apply. If your registration date is October 2009 and onward…see you next year (but if you’re a old user with a new account, I can make an exception)!

THERE WILL BE 32 ENTRIES FOR PARTICIPATION, AND ANOTHER 32 ENTRIES FOR VOTERS ONLY
