Best Final Fantasy Character Ever: ROUND2, DAY39: Beatrix (FF9) vs. Wakka (FF10)

#1MagmaYoshiPosted 5/3/2012 8:48:56 AM
**SPOILERS AHEAD!**

Welcome to ROUND 2, MATCH 39 of the "Best Final Fantasy Character Ever" tournament! This tournament will determine the best character in the Final Fantasy series. After going through an intense nomination process, we have narrowed the contestants down to 64 nominees, with representation from almost all corners of the FF universe.

This is how it will work. Every day, I will post two contestants. All you have to do is vote for the character you think is the better of the two. At exactly 12pm EST, voting will freeze and any votes past that will not be counted.

Some ground rules:

1.) I would really prefer you copy-paste the previous voters' "Current standings" posted to prevent me from having to go through the topic and count each one. However, I won't disqualify your vote if you fail to read.

2.) You are only allowed to vote once per match, but feel free to discuss as much as you want.

3.) If you don't know anything about one of the characters (ie you haven't played their game), please abstain. It's not fair to that character.

4.) Please be very clear when casting your vote.

5.) You may not vote if your account was made AFTER the tournament began on March 17. I would impose a karma requirement but that has the possibility of weeding out real voters.

6.) In the event of a tie, sudden death will be entered at 12am (midnight) EST and the first contestant to reach five votes will win.

Here is the bracket with all of the matchups:

Yesterday, we were treated to a truly cruel display when Yuna (FF10) was forced to let go of her past and say farewell to Tidus once again at a vote of 39-33. I guess in the end, people fell in love with Yuna's character. Tidus did very well though, I'd say, considering all his haters. Yuna will move on to Round 3, where she will face Sabin Rene Figaro (FF6).

Sorry Wakka. You're one of my favorites from X, but Beatrix (FF9) is my second favorite character. She just gets SUCH awesome music. I feel like FF9 would've been a MUCH btter game if she had been utilized more. Even though I might even go so far as to say that Wakka is the deeper character, I just can't NOT vote for Beatrix.

Current Standings:
Beatrix (FF9) [01]
Wakka (FF10) [00]

Hum, Beatrix is still here? Okay, I voted for her in the first round, but she doesn't stand up to a full fledged character like Wakka.

Vote for Wakka
