    Thumbs up The Ultimate OOTS Cookie Cutter Nameless Soldier Tournament: Finals. Results in!

    This tournament is over! Results in post #26.



    They are probably the least important characters in the comic. They only count because of their numbers. Their outfits and even their faces show so little diversity that it becomes impossible to tell Hobgoblin Warrior #1 from Hobgoblin Warrior from Strip #433, Panel 3, may he rest in peace. One of them will get their time to shine. This is the Ultimate OOTS Cookie Cutter Nameless Soldier Tournament!

    The previous session closes later tonight, so let's get cooking!

    This is the second to last time I'll get to post that picture. The end really is near.


    The match of this final ultimate extra long round is:
    VS
    Wight versus Hobgoblin

    Do I really need to say any more at this point? You know these candidates as well as I do! In fact, while you're voting, why not also share a link to your favorite hobgoblin or wight moment, to help refresh everyone's mind?

    Voting happens by embedding the appropriate portrait in your post, or by naming the nameless contestant of your choice. In case of a tie the last vote that was cast before the deadline determines the winner.

    This match will run until the night of Friday the 8th upon Saturday the 9th of January, 00:00 GMT. And then we'll finally know who will be crowned the ultimate nobody! Mouhahahahaha!!!

    Ooh, tough one. I'm going to go with the standard Hobgoblin, though.

    This is the rare tournament where my favorites make it to the final. I'm going with wights. This is hard to vote against, no?

    As I said before, I feel like the hobgoblin is a good contender for "the" iconic nameless copypasted soldier extra of OOTS.

    It is hard choice, hobs are much more iconic. Unfortunately, like Tsukiko I have crush for undeads, so I cannot vote but Wight!

    Like their mistress, the wights never had enough brain cells to comprehend that they weren't truly part of the big picture. The hobgoblins at least have that much going for them--they are aware of their mediocrity and not afraid to admit it.

    Hobgoblins for the most nameless soldiers.

    Go Wights!

    A well timed vote. One more hour to vote, results tomorrow, some final statistics a bit later.

    Results time!

    But first...

    I tallied the total number of votes cast in every round of the tournament, and this is what the numbers look like:
    Pool Phase week 1: 18
    Pool Phase week 2: 28
    Quarter finals week 1: 17
    Quarter finals week 2: 19
    Semi-finals: 21
    3th place: 21
    Finals: 19

    All rounds get about the same number of votes, with one clear outlier, the second week of the pool phase. That week was also the only time someone came in to vote for one match without naming a contestant from the other one. Pool B got 27 votes that week, pool D got 28.

    The winner of pool D was from there on destined for greatness, and made it to the finals. And there he won with a difference of a single vote, 10-9. The Ultimate OOTS Cookie Cutter Nameless Soldier is...

    The Hobgoblin Warrior!

    Have some acid-spitting beetle pie!



    The wights get a well deserved second place, but they can't help but feel they might have been champions if they had just found the right shoes to stomp the competition with.

    For fun and giggles, the total numbers of votes cast on the final four contestants over all rounds:
    Hobgoblin: 45
    Wight: 37
    Ninja: 36
    Lizardfolk: 35

    And for the four losers of the quarter finals:
    Halberd Azurite: 17
    Goblin Ninja: 17
    Bug Bandit: 16
    EoT soldier: 9

    So that brings us to the end of the tournament. The omnipresent hobgoblin takes the win! And on that bombshell: see you in the next tournament.

    (Note: one post in this thread was scrubbed by the moderators. I found myself unable to trace the content of this post (plus I'm not here to mod the mods), so it hasn't been counted as a vote, and since we now have a winner it will not be counted if it becomes known at any point in the future. The hobgoblins have threatened to feed me to the monster in the dark if I didn't say this.)

    Well, that was definitely a fun tournament! A well-deserved win for the Hobgoblins, even though my heart was riding with the Wights.
