I know the daily polls have no real significance, but I hate the character battles. The same chars always win and I just think they are a waste of time

Anyone else feel this way???

Well this year at least apparently some redditors are rigging some of the polls, so that makes it more interesting. This will be the first year that the final round won't have Mario, Link, and/or some Final Fantasy character in it.

It's a bit of pointless fun. I'm not a sports guy so the Character Battle is the only bracket I'll ever fill out. I have 155 and I picked Snake to win. If a miracle happens I could get onto the leaderboard.

I hate them too.
Completely idiotic and a waste of time.

It's pretty dumb how they always put the most popular characters against characters that aren't as popular and you always know who's gonna win.

Francis York Morgan should've been in the finals. Best character I've seen in a game in years... possibly ever!

Not that it matters, but hey. :P

absolutely not. they are a complete waste of time when the only winners are either cloud, sephiroth, link, or a joke character that only gets votes because reddit or 2chan thinks it will be funny. Seems like the joke character is winning this year.
Glad DmC shipped a million copies and was a success. Supporting risk-takers and change is how the industry grows.

Well this year its pretty interesting since Link, Mario, Cloud and all FF characters are eliminated

But the final will either Snake will win by a small margin..

or Draven will win by a huge landslide.....

This has been one of the more interesting character battles. Even though it can be attributed to reddit votes. Link is OUT. Cloud lost to a freaking Pokemon. Vivi>Mario came out of nowhere. Snake winning against Draven would make this the best contest ever imo (probably won't happen).
