Re: 2016 Aquamarine General Discussion Thread

But bruh, I have little to no understanding of what the rules are this year. My body is not ready for this.

That's actually not unprecedented. We actually did do a live draw on IRC chat for 2009 placement.

Re: ISML 2016

So, I just heard about the news today. As the guy who started all of this in the first place, it is only fair that I give my thoughts on the situation. First off, I want to personally thank Crisu for running the International Saimoe League for the past six years. I know that we have had our issues i...

Re: When will we know about ISML 2016?

We are less than 4 weeks away to March 1st, and we know nothing about 2016. Is it happening or not?

Re: POLL: Consolation or Exhibition

In that case, go with exhibition. For postseason tiebreaker, use the seedings obtained by PS I.

Re: Should the ToC be cancelled, or be changed?

I don't understand the argument where, if something indirectly affects another, it should be "canceled" or "changed". This is a part of every day life. Actions you do will influence people you never even meet. I could very well say that the ToC match SHOULD influence the tiara match because it brin...

Re: POLL: Consolation or Exhibition

Because that would mean more days in the calendar. And some staff members got exam something like 10 days after the end of ISML. So if you add a week of matches that mean they can't study. ISML already finished very late this year. I don't think voting near christmas is a very good idea. No it does...

Re: Looking for a wild way to spice up ISML 2016? Here's on

Perhaps two additional non-Tiaras could be sacrificed to maintain four slots for Tiaras, who are evenly split into the two divisions. Maybe with 2WC+29 characters per division it could be ok. It means 31 characters per division = only 6 matches per period (that mean maybe we can have a calendar wit...

Re: Looking for a wild way to spice up ISML 2016? Here's on

140-4 contestants seems like a lot. Is it possible to still incorporate some or all the TOC will maintaining 70-72 total females? In my proposed scenario, it is possible to do 70 RS females, but not without people's feelings getting hurt: We can use this in a two-division format, where instead of f...

Step 4: Postseason I Obviously, the four new divisions beg the question: How are we going to handle the Sapphire and Diamond Circlets if the divisions are no longer Nova/Stella? Well, here’s how: Sapphire Circlet – Kanade Division Top 8 + Ruri Division Top 8 Diamond Circlet – Mikoto Division Top 8 ...

This post is reserved for any frequently asked questions on this wild idea. #1: Why give the Big Three byes? Why can't all the Tiara winners have to play their way in to get their own divisions?

Looking for a wild way to spice up ISML 2016? Here's one.

Let me begin with the following disclaimer: In no way, shape, or form would I ever think that this wild and crazy idea will be implemented by the ISML Staff next year. #ItsJustAnIdea But looking back at ISML 2015, it seems like the most memorable moments, to me, are not Yukino losing to Chiyo in Top...

Re: RESULTS: 2015 Postseason II-6 [el clásico]

I think Kanade is the only participant who has never lost a match, right? She lost a zillion matches before . You were wrong. Shana beat her on her first entry to ISML. That is only the beginning and you didn't even know that? I did not know that the words zillion and six were synonyms. :roll:

Re: RESULTS: 2015 Postseason II-5

I propose that starting next year, ISML should be simplified. Get rid of all the PSAO garbage and go back to pure win-loss records during the tournament. Tie breakers are decided by live-streamed rock-paper-scissors matches between Crisu and Hikari cosplaying as the characters in question. I second...

Re: About the value of Heavenly Tiara

If anything, the value of the Heavenly Tiara is even greater now than it was before. For the necklaces, 7 contestants qualify, regardless of exactly how well they did (undefeated or otherwise). Aka, you can lose a match and still qualify for the necklace match. For the Tiara, if you lose, you're ou...

Re: So...who win this year?

Considering that the " foul play, distrust, unreliability, and negative labeling " was a direct quote from me, allow me the luxury of responding. If Eru defeated Yukino 51% to 49%, I can certainly make very legitimate case that foul play and unreliability would win this year just as it did last year...
