Was Dug a victim of how relatively early the round went up? I don't remember who all the Dug savers were, but that sucks.

I'm sorry I didnt make a formal Dug trade partnership with one of his backers... I hated saving Lotso there instead of him, damn.

I am going to reach out to Sparrow savers so the same thing doesn't happen in the future!

Trading with someone who's saving Dug doesn't actually help him. It actually hurts him more if you trade with his traders because then you can't save him in the end of the round if need be.

While it's a nice gesture to try and trade with characters you also like, in the end all it does is hurt them since that person will just find a trade with someone else if they don't trade with you.

In actuality you want to be trading with the characters you like the least because come the end of the round if you need to save someone you like, you'll always be free to do so.

I see your point but I still disagree, I had been freed up to auto for Dug in the past when I had saved him earlier, but now I have to roll all my saves into Darkwing so I cant do any late round help, eg this exact round. So I'd like to focus my saves on characters I really like... though I understand it really doesn't matter since trade partners can always be found.

SMDC VIII: 87/200 (Percentile: 57)
SMDC IX: 7/200 (Percentile: 97)
SMDC X: 10/200 (Percentile: 95)

Modern Era Average Placement: 47.60
All-Time Average Placement: 49.00
All-Time Average Percentile: 80.42

Modern Era Rank: 30/183
All-Time Placement Rank:28/289
All-Time Percentile Rank:24/289

It seems to always be feast for famine for Dug. Out of 8 contests, he has three top tens and a top 20, a 33rd place... then 87th and two sub-100 finishes. One of those was his debut, a 113th place in SMDC III (a fortunate contest to have that in, if you're looking at the percentile ranking), three great contests, two sub par contests, and and now back to back top tens. Dug got caught in that 7th place ceiling that traps a lot of characters like him. Tod, Dug, Bolt, Mittens, 7th place is often just as far as those characters can make it, and very few break through. But Dug has made the best of it - only six characters in the contest have more top ten finishes than him, and if you replace one of those blips of his with a finish more around his average, his placement jumps 5-15 spots depending on the category. Those couple slip ups are all it took for him. That said, he's still in great shape, being in the top 30 overall in every category, including top 25 by placement. He jumped 7 spots in the modern and placement categories, and 4 spots in the percentile category.

Anyways, just to be up front with where we are now to everyone.

If everyone stays the course, Mulan wins. an outside shot of Pooh, but Mulan combined with megadeal backlash i think makes it a done deal.

Right now Nick looks strong, but the end of the road is coming and I know it. Simply put, his power has neared its peak for this year. The only character death that gives him strength is Sparrow but that is no guarantee and it is minor support at best.

This isnt to say he is weak, he is a very strong character here, with definite future winning potential. But that win simply wont happen this year. People that i know potentially could be his supporters any given year aren't coming this year. He could easily finish top 5, cap as high as third again, thats great, and while satisfying to me, in other ways, and its hard to describe and kind of strange at the same time, it also isn't satisfying.

So I'm throwing it out there now, if everyone stays the course, we guarantee a repeat winner or at least repeat finalist. If you guys really want to start the power spike that comes from everyone trying to snag repeat wins, i cant stop you from opening that can of worms.

I'm just going to say it, if no one moves i stay the course and wont be sad about, Remy is one or two supporters from having a lot of power. Hes one or two supporters away from being able to make a deep run and if you show me he can be a contender, I'll make him one.

I know Nick's supporters like Remy. It is some of the last overlap that could change the game left.

But if people stay the course, I'll put my fox to top 5.

This result matches my predictions as well. Dug was doomed. Nick or Remy...one of them will make the final and one will get something like 7th.

Mulan an Pooh will split 1st and 3rd respectively, depending on who gets the support thrown their way as other characters fall.

4th, 5th, and 6th will split Sparrow, Darkwing, and Simba out.

Next round the most likely outs are Shere Khan or Lotso.

wait what red

What are you thinking Remy is gonna do, just "make a deep run"? What's that going to change exactly, other than screwing Nick over. You're just putting Remy in the spot of Nick from last year pretty much.

yea this entire time I've been about saving who I like. Nick is one of my favorite characters so that's why I've been supporting him, if you see my pattern in SMFFFC you'd know I'm pretty consistent with that. Vivi's won 2 times now and yet I keep pushing him because....he's my favorite Final Fantasy character. Like I personally don't fuck with future deals or anything like that, I simply want to save the character I like year after year.

Also I was hoping Nick would be free of any controversies/conspiracies that plague numerous characters in Save My's, this doesn't help that unfortunately. Nick is just someone who has a fair amount of people saving him because they genuinely like him a lot, and he ranks fairly highly for people who even don't save him as priority. That feels nice, would hate to have any resentment get thrown towards him.

The anti-Mulan propaganda always conveniently forgets how, despite her early strength, Mulan has a long history of dropping around the final five or six, in large part because of the very propaganda that constantly reinforces "she's the one to beat."

I don't understand why saying the #1 ranked SMDC character after 9 seasons is one of the best bets to win the contest sounds so far fetched. It is not outlandish at all to say she will win. It's basically the most un-outlandish claim or prediction I can make.

Pooh has static support. Again, just by measurement of rankings. Soooo many people had him at the bottom. Who's going to switch to him as more characters fall? I've only heard people talking about switching to mulan, Nick/Remy combo. And that's about it.

Mulan still has saves shell pick up as others are eliminated. Pooh pretty much has the same core moving forward. I still think Pooh makes the finals, but Mulans going to pick up much more support along the way. Easy Mulan victory.
