Oh my God, just imagine if this contest turns into a waifu war between Monika and D.Va rallies.

If Overwatch went full power, no one else would have a prayer.

And Monika is easily winning two matches. Past that, who knows. Zero is a monster.

I do think D.Va will easily dispose of Aloy, despite the seeding discrepancy. So that could potentially help her gain momentum.

I also don't think Fox is going to have his best showing, since Star Fox Zero turned out to be a complete debacle.

That might be the scary aspect of this. They are registering/digging up old accounts now, so the rally safeguard is weakening right now. This won't account for everyone that shows up day of, but at least a good portion of their rally will also be voting with the bonus.

Good. I'm rooting for a rally out of sheep spite for all the whining about it since 2007, even though we have had rallies in literally every match.

Sweet.

Just keep in mind, the Disclaimer it has at the beginning of the game when you boot it up IS NOT A JOKE!

I do say that it does make for a good game to play during October.

Also fun trivia about Dan Salvato, the guy who made the game, he's a former Melee Pro Player (he's a Link main), used to do modding for both Melee and Brawl (he was one of the developers for Project M), and he speed runs Yoshi's Story.

Doesn't need to be. You can win most matches now by getting 30,000 total votes, and her first two matches are against Wario, then either Noctis or Master Hand. The bandwagon will be in full effect when it's time for Zero and Pikachu, and if she gets past them then only Link can stop her.

Let's put this a different way. Every rallied-to-win character has been a first timer with PC gamer + meme appeal, including L-Block. If she beats Wario, watch out. Her path is the perfect slow burn bandwagon storm.

Yes but Tetris is the best selling game ever and LoL was the biggest game in the world at one point.

I think if Draven just barely edged out Link, it's going to be hard for anyone to beat him with the double vote bonus. D.Va might be possible but Overwatch isn't free like LoL so it probably doesn't have as much potential. Basically I don't think any rally will be as strong as Draven's was this year because there are no Fortnite characters which is the new LoL basically

Hopefully Zen saves this to the archive so everyone can laugh at me if I'm wrong though!

Link had no chance against Draven. Rallied entries like to give the appearance that their opponent has a chance when they don't.

Mario 64 did nothing all day long while SSBM had a fairly large rally of its own. Both results were a "narrow" Undertale victory.

Man, I so fucking wish Mash got in the contest.

The Fate/Grand Order community is not be underestimated.

Maybe.

The /r/grandorder sub averages like 3k active users, which is significantly more than what the DDLC sub gets.

(Eric Andre voice) Do ittttt. I even have the perfect name for this - the "Babylon Sisters" bracket.

I'm with Ulti, though - a Link with BotW goodwill on his side is going to be terrifying, and will have significant rally potential in his own right. I'm not betting against him this year.

Picking Monika to lose in R3 now. I was going to ignore rallies but I can't do that when the rally starts during the bracket submission phase.

I still think that Reddit looks small enough for it not to go far. Or rather, I want to belive in it.

If it's only the Reddit, that won't be enough to take Monika very far. But things spread quickly to other communities on the internet. She could be powerful enough to take on Zero by the time that match happens, and then everyone but Link will be slain easily.

For all people talk about rallies they have a certain lightining-in-a-bottle thing that's necessary to happen. Most rallies barely win one match or so. We had rallies last two contests because there were so many attempts that eventually one succeeded.

I'm sticking with Wario. Itll be closer, but Monika still has too much going against her.

-Registered voters get two votes

-Shes probably super weak naturally

-And is incredibly prone to anti voting now that we know about it ahead of time

-The reddit page is too small for anything substantial to happen.

I say she probably breaks 40% on him. Either way though even if she pulls it off, itll at least be a fun match now

It's a lot smaller than LoL's subreddit. Currently DDLC has 1,427 active users while LoL's has 40,616. That said, rallies can go past reddit into other DDLC communities once the word is out.


I could totally see 4chan rallying for Monika as it seems like it would appeal to their userbase.

their link makes it look like they have to fill out a bracket to "vore"

cue lots of brackets, no voting


Well, I assume they will likely update the link to go straight to the voting page (sometime after it goes live).

Yeah but Undertale's reddit is actually smaller than the Doki reddit (and also had around 1000 active users at the time of the rally).
What matters is if they can get the support of other communities.
