Now that I'm the primary host of the Board 8's Best Original Character contest (or B8BOC for short - a round-robin competition with original characters created by B8 users as its entrants), I figured we should have a proper results and discussion topic. Feel free to use this topic for other related purposes, such as fanart of the characters involved, as well!

Here's The Results, so far:

Day 1: Obrov > Rayleigh, 8-5
Day 2: Winona > Big Blob, 7-3
Day 3: Mary > Abigail, 8-2
Day 4: Atrocita = Yoshiki, 5-5
Day 5: Obrov > norenxaq, 12-0
Day 6: Artemis > Marina, 9-3
Day 7: Talirah > Spirit, 9-3
Day 8: Winona > Rayleigh, 7-3

And here's our Forthcoming Schedule:

Day 9 (starts 11/19): Big Blob vs. norenxaq
Day 10 (starts 11/20): Obrov vs. Winona
Day 11 (starts 11/21): Abigail vs. Atrocita
Day 12 (starts 11/22): Yoshiki vs. Mary
Day 13 (starts 11/23): Artemis vs. Spirit
Day 14 (starts 11/24): Marina vs. Talirah
Day 15 (starts 11/25): Rayleigh vs. Big Blob
Day 16 (starts 11/26): Winona vs. norenxaq
Day 17 (starts 11/29): Mary vs. Atrocita
Day 18 (starts 11/30): Abigail vs. Yoshiki
Day 19 (starts 12/1): Obrov vs. Big Blob
Day 20 (starts 12/2): Marina vs. Spirit
Day 21 (starts 12/3): Artemis vs. Talirah
Day 22 (starts 12/4): Rayleigh vs. norenxaq
Day 23 (starts 12/5): Vote-in round
Day 24 (starts 12/6): Wild Card Match AB
Day 25 (starts 12/7): Wild Card Match CD
Day 26 (starts 12/8): Wild Card Match AC
Day 27 (starts 12/9): Wild Card Match BD
Day 28 (starts 12/10): Wild Card Match AD
Day 29 (starts 12/11): Wild Card Match BC
Day 30 (starts 12/12): Championship AB
Day 31 (starts 12/13): Championship CW
Day 32 (starts 12/14): Championship AC
Day 33 (starts 12/15): Championship BW
Day 34 (starts 12/16): Championship AW
Day 35 (starts 12/18): Championship BC
Day 36 (starts 12/19): Ultimate Final

All matches from here on out will begin around 6 PM PT on the listed day. Note that we will be taking a brief break for Thanksgiving, and another one-day break near the end due to a prior commitment I have that day.

To explain: Pre-contest, Andy randomly sorted each character into one of three divisions. Division 1 ("BROWN") is comprised of Big Blob, Rayleigh, Obrov, Winona, and norenxaq. Division 2 ("MAYA") is comprised of Mary, Abigail, Yoshiki, and Atrocita. Finally, Division 3 ("MAST") is comprised of Marina, Artemis, Spirit, and Talirah.

From there, to quote Andy:
The division champions all move onto the final. The runners-up in each division will move on to the wild card division, where the winner of that will join the championship round.

The metric that matters most is votes. However, a character will gain additional votes for winning a match, that being 20% of the total votes in that match (rounded down). The character with the most votes at the end of their division wins it. The one with the second-most goes to the Wild Card. Additionally, there will be a vote-in round that will function sort of like a Save My, but with the one character with the most votes entering the Wild Card Division as well. This is being added because of the additional character.

The three Division winners and the Wild Card Division winner will all move on to a Championship match. The two with the most total votes across their matches in this Division will then face off in the final.


I'll update the standings in this topic every so often, in lieu of a spreadsheet. Stay tuned for those, as well as a link to today's match!

That's great - much better than anything I could draw, for sure!

And the Scott Pilgrim vibes are intentional; a specific Scott Pilgrim character was my primary influence.

@Snake5555555555

tried to do Mary but I was drifting off while drawing it so it didn't really come out how I wanted

also, an alternate version where I accidentally mesed up the paint but I kinda like how it looks better

I love the style you chose there, and like your Big Blob art, the sense of perspective.

It's also really interesting to see how both you and Johnbobb seized on and incorporated minor details such as the scarf I included in my original 'art'.

Yesterday, Rayleigh became the final match winner of the divisional phase, by a 5-2 margin over norenxaq.

That leaves our final divisional standings as the following:

BROWN:
1. 39 Obrov
2. 28 Winona
3. 21 Rayleigh
4. 17 Big Blob
5. 6 norenxaq

MAYA:
1. 20 Mary
2. 16 Atrocita
3. 15 Yoshiki
4. 8 Abigail

MAST:
1. 25 Artemis
2. 19 Talirah
3. 14 Spirit
4. 12 Marina

That means Obrov, Mary, and Artemis move straight on to the championship round; Winona, Atrocita, and Talirah reach the wildcard round; meanwhile, everyone else gets one last shot at redemption in the vote-in round.

I would like to apologize for failing to post it on time, or to announce the specific rules beforehand. With that said, vote in it right here: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/8-gamefaqs-contests/78230455

Rayleigh won yesterday's Vote-In round, on account of RySenkari's vote for her coming in ahead of their vote for Big Blob, since the two characters received an equal amount of votes. As a result, Rayleigh moves on to slot D in the Wild Card round.
