organize the bracket by the average X-Stat value of the years from the last Games Contest

I'll do the math for you, Allen

this is what happens when Allen tries to create a "rally-proof" contest I guess

I don't find this interesting at all. It's too broad of an idea and I don't really care about what year a game came out, but I'm fine with it as long as it's a Villains/Series Contest and we're getting another one later this year

This has to be, without a doubt, the hardest contest to "root" for an entrant, so I can see why people would be less hyped for it because of that. Still, it should also really mitigate the trolling and animosity that we sometimes drum up during contest season. If I had to guess, I'm expecting the least "dramatic" contest we've ever had, but it could be the most amiable and laid-back as well.


I think after the last two that's a perfectly good idea

And I really enjoyed the more amiable ones. It gives b8 a focus without it becoming the be-all and end-all.

People will still find ways to get angry.

They just won't be able to find an outside source who will care enough to interfere.

Well of course, like the relatively amiable 05 villains contest had the hilarious Master Hand/Kuja mess. There has to be some conflict, some animosity, obviously. That's part of it.

But that's not even in the same ballpark as 2013 or even 2015 where it was excessive.

I think you've got some nostalgia blinders on if you think any contest from the first four or five years was "amiable." The board was much younger and much more volatile in the early days.

We can have topic after topic of people who like new games whining because those years are all losing to the 90s and early 00s.
Our brackets went under, but DpObliVion's lived to tell the tale.

Awesome. 1998 will probably crush, but that's fine since it deserves to.
