No, we like it to coincide with March Madness.

By the way, with me helping VX out by making brackets (which I made myself in Photoshop, al, since you asked), that now means that what's basically an election of sorts is being run by guys who grew up in Miami-Dade and Cook County. If that doesn't make you feel assured, I dunno what will.

You Clique Bers give yourselves way too much credit. I already told you the reason behind the seeding: You primarily post at the Pit. Not here. Wrong board for a poster tournament to be seeded first. Your bracket was a mix between TSM's "elite snobs" and boardum, and I seeded it #1-8 TSMers, and #9-16 Boardum guys. I rated you the highest of the boardum guys, and actually if you look at the matchups, got a way easier match against Kotz (I mean, look how much ass BL is kicking right now.. I have 36 ballots in, and BL is winning 25-10!) than you would have against Inc or AoO, and you still bitch. Why should we start over? I'm trying to be as impartial as possible, while preventing this lame bloc voting that happened last year. Or do any of you guys forget how the second round chave just mysteriously randomized the matchups, and all the Boardum kids were able to move on because of easier matchups? Fuck that noise, man.

Also, my votes-


Elite Snobs/Boardum/Pit bracket:
#1 Incandenza vs. #9 Ravenbomb - I like Inc.
#12 Chave vs. #4 Banky - This is the vote I would've given Banky last round, plus chave is a menstruating cunt. Even though he seems like he might be a good bloke once in a while.
#14 Black Lushus vs. #6 Kotz - Kotz is my boy, plus he needs all the help he can get.
#10 kkktookmybabyaway vs. #2 AgentOfOblivion - Much more amusing and interesting to interact with on the board.

TSM Vets/Shit Folders bracket:
#1 Slayer vs. #8 bob_barron - Again, I don't dislike bob, but I just like Slayer better.
#5 CWM vs. #4 Leena - Looks better in a dress.
#3 Czech vs. #11 Smues - Moving the blowout right along..
#7 FrigidSoul vs. #15 Special K - While I wanted to vote Fridge this round, I'm pulling for Special K in the eventual case of me losing.

Sports Folder bracket:
#1 alkeiper vs. #8 CanadianGuitarist - Hockey>baseball, even if the bastard didn't vote for me this round. I should post in the hockey threads more often.
#12 The Max vs. #4 Ripper - Minorities stick together.
#3 Kingofthe909 vs. #11 TheManInBlak - This was really tough for me. I like both posters, but I voted 909 for being the most notable poster from L.A. right now.
#7 Vitamin X vs. #2 LordOfTheCurry - Duh.

The Awesomely Mediocre and/or Unknown bracket:
#16 Muggy Bogues vs. #9 DrVenkman - Killin' the #16 upset.
#12 AndrewTS vs. #4 redbaron51 - Andrew's still a dork.
#3 CanadianChris vs. #6 Hawk52 - I don't like numbers mixed in with names, especially when names are really similar to other posters to begin with.
#7 HuntersTornQuad vs. #2 gary floyd - HE IS THE CHEESE! HE IS THE BEST CHARACTER IN ALL THE BRACKET. HE IS BETTER THAN BOTH THE SALAMI AND BOLOGNA COMBINED

No, I would've seeded you #8 if you were in the Elite Snobs bracket, which is where the Boardum/Clique B people are. I know you don't like them. You were seeded higher than everyone else in your bracket, outside of last year's finalists and the owner of the board.

Also, voting will end sometime Sunday, although I doubt we're going to get very many after today anyways. Sunday night my time, I wager, or in the afternoon.

I'm seeing the average turnout for each round is about 40-50 votes, and we're at 38 right now.

Okay, let's get it straight here.

Elite Snobs/Boardum/Pit bracket:
#1 Incandenza vs. #9 Ravenbomb: Yep.

#12 Chave vs. #4 Banky: Banky's not a British poster.

#14 Black Lushus vs. #6 Kotz: I will NOT job to Nebraska. Better'n Kansas, but c'mon guys.

#10 kkktookmybabyaway vs. #2 AgentOfOblivion: We must have an Agent/me Sweet 16 matchup.

TSM Vets/Shit Folders bracket:
#1 Slayer vs. #8 bob_barron: Bob Barron.

#5 CWM vs. #4 Leena: He's my boy. Leena can never be my boy. Like, it's physically impossible.

#3 Czech vs. #11 Smues: Okay, the new mod got his first round win. That's enough, 'specially if he votes against me.

#7 FrigidSoul vs. #15 Special K: Again, dicks who vote against me pay.

Sports Folder bracket:
#1 alkeiper vs. #8 CanadianGuitarist: Again, I can't overstate how much of a resource this dude is.

#12 The Max vs. #4 Ripper: I despise Atlanta, but like Ripper.

#3 Kingofthe909 vs. #11 TheManInBlak: This was tough. Okay, not really. I heart MiB.

#7 Vitamin X vs. #2 LordOfTheCurry: I didn't see LOTC starting this. He was too busy doing... ah, whatever stereotype he fills.

The Awesomely Mediocre and/or Unknown bracket:
#16 Muggy Bogues vs. #9 DrVenkman: Oh shit, a #16 is still alive. I gotta vote for the lowest seed possible. Take that as you will.

#12 AndrewTS vs. #4 redbaron51: If he posts anything that makes me want to slap him within the next 24 hours, consider this vote null.

#3 CanadianChris vs. #6 Hawk52: Why not.

#7 HuntersTornQuad vs. #2 gary floyd: HTQ tripped off me, but he's a good egg. Lovecraft gets the vote for hanging around these parts more, not that this would be considered a good thing. Toughest of the round, seriously.

Ah, bless you.

For the sake of comparison, below is last years tournament. I don't think anybody in Clique B got an easier round through than geniusmoment (apart from Lushus of course, he had it way easy). In fact, I got Banky at the same stage last year. The difference that because there were no brackets last year, and because the only people who visit this folder on a regular basis are people who have been here a while (which includes Clique B) people in Clique B are more likely to get voted for than, for example, HTQ or Al. The only block voting (I'm assuming you don't mean we were voting for communists) was in Carnival/Slayer, and Jugs was never going to win that anyway.

As for the semi-diss regarding Lushus having it easy (because he was facing me), I'll point out he only beat me by a couple votes. Not exactly a blowout. And it doesn't strike you as a bit odd that Niskie, Malibu, Carnival, and kkk all made it to the round of 8? Come on now. Malibu had geniusMoment and AndrewTS. Cake. Niskie had lovecraft (at the time largely unknown outside of horror movie threads) and Rudo, who everyone pretty much hated at that time anyways. Easy. Only Carnival's run was justified, when he somehow overcame the magic of FOOSTER~ and then got an easy matchup with Matt Young, who shouldn't have gotten that far to begin with.

But either ways, the point is, is that there's a bit more of a challenge and reward for making it out of the brackets you're in. Consider that really a big reason why I would put you in that bracket was because I know you guys would get a lot of votes. That's the hardest one to get out of for a reason. There's some strategy to this, and it doesn't seem as fishy (whether you meant for it to be that way or not) as it did last year. Let's put it behind us.

Niskie's very well liked, Malibu has a lot af friends, kkk made it out of the last 16 by beating me (and belive me, I'm far more biased towards me) and Carnival has always defied the laws of natural selection. When you compare it to this years tournament, when your last eight is going to include two posters from the mediocre bracket, I'd say it's stronger. Besides, it's no easier than Czech's, or potentially your, route to the final eight this year.

I think the final last time out was a suitable one. Maybe next year, it's worth seeding everybody in the 64 and doing it that way.

But the whole point of having a mediocre, elite, and two "middle" brackets is that more posters have an equal chance, so it's more exciting that way. It's not about having a stronger overall tournament, not until you get to the semis and the finals themselves. And if a mediocre poster somehow gets voted there, well, then more props to them.

And my point re: Niskie, carnival, kkk, and Zack being in the 8 last year isn't based on their merits, but more on the merits of their opponents which greatly outweighs their strengths you just listed. In other words, someone is more likely to vote for Zack Malibu over geniusMoment because they don't give a flying fuck or know who geniusMoment is, whereas they see Zack's name and say "Hey! I know that guy, sorta" even if they don't really KNOW him. They're more voting for some sort of familiarity or voting AGAINST another poster (much like how niskie got past Rudo, or even moreso, how Rudo got past Dama).

I don't see how the seeding is done wrong here. The NCAA March Madness tournament is the most exciting playoff in sports, and this is the most fun a lot of the lesser known posters could have in one of these things. Hell, we've had some weird shit happen already, like Muggy freakin' Bogues, the 16 seed in the Mediocre bracket, upsetting ADMIN. And blowing him out, too. A lot of these guys wouldn't have had a chance in the other brackets, yet, they still probably won't win the tournament because they do eventually have to go up against the champions from a very strong bracket. Everyone wins. Seeding it 1-64 just makes things uneven and messy for each next round.
