Aquamarine Necklace Winner

Post by Chocola » Tue Apr 06, 2010 8:36 am

Do you approve or disapprove? Were there other characters (who had a chance) that you would rather win? Or was Mio good enough?

Approve. I would have prefered Yuki but Mio is good enough and better than Misaka who I expected to win the Aquamarine necklace.

I approve

inb4ban from ISML IRC


Also Im sure people are already aware that the KyoAni Empire is no longer the dominant force on ISML, they have the numbers, but not the territories.

Current Top 5:
Akiyama Mio (KyoAni)
Misaka Mikoto (JC Staff)
Shana (JC Staff)
Katsura Hinagiku (JC Staff)
Aisaka Taiga (JC Staff)

JC Staff is now IMO the ultimate moe maker industry at this moment

Hina or at least Misaka would have been much better. But I'm at least grateful that it wasn't a certain few characters I dislike.

I approve, though I would have preferred someone like Nadeko or Azusa.

edit: For the poster, the whatever it's called in her mouth kinda ruins the poster for me x.x

I approve, fun to see a newbie win the first round instead of an old vet...

I only hope Shana wins a necklace before she starts acquiring hate votes for being so awesome! =D (yeah Im sure this helps *grin*)

So for Aquamarine we've had Shana, Tomoyo, and now Mio.

The defender of Topaz is Yuki, who will not have to go against Mio anymore. (Setsuna is not viable to defend her 2008 title).

After this we will start getting into undefended titles, and the Rozen Maidens are gone. Shana defends Sapphire, while Hinagiku defends Ruby.
*unless you want to fall back on the 2008 winners to defend in place of the Rozen Maidens, in which case you have Kagami as defender (twice) and Haruhi defending the final challenge.

Despite wishing other characters could have won, I approve Mio's win. It's her first necklace, and honestly I would rather have her win than some of the past big hitters from previous necklace wins. Congrats Mio!

I approve a Mio's win...but support Yuki to the end (this was the only match I didn't vote for Mio...because I vote for Yuki above all).

I miss having Rena in this though...the Collection was fun.

I don't really approve because I like both Misaka and Taiga more than her. However, I don't think anyone here thought she wouldn't win at least one necklace this year.

On another note, the new posters look really nice.

Well, I wasn't expecting Mio to win this one, and I didn't want her to, but I don't mind it. If it wasn't Aquamarine, it would've been another.

The Aquamarine Period makes me despair...

Looking at the stats given by the ISML, one can see that Mio only won against Misaka by 208 points in VF and the SDO where Mio got 78/78 (wins/match) while Misaka got 75/75. Statistically speaking, both characters tied in the Aquamarine Period. Also Misaka has a winning streak of being first from round 2 to round 6 while Mio only got first in the last round. I want an explanation why Mio was hailed as the Aquamarine Necklace Winner and there are no tiebreaker match anounced.

Winning a necklace is largely based on three criteria:
1) You need to win all 7 matches in a period.
2) The characters you beat need to win their matches against other characters.
3) You need to win by as much as possible in your seven matches


1) You need to win all 7 matches in a period.
This is straightforward. Mio and Misaka both won all 7 matches in Aquamarine. A character needs to be really strong to meet this criteria.

2) The characters you beat need to win their matches against other characters.
This is the SDO criteria. It's mostly luck based. Unless ties are involved, it's the total number of wins the characters you beat got multiplied by 3.

Mio's old opponents and the number of wins they had in Aquqmarine:
Sanzen'in Nagi - 5
Furude Hanyū - 0
Hirasawa Ui - 2
Sengoku Nadeko - 6
Illyasviel von Einzbern - 5
Ichinose Kotomi - 2
Nagato Yuki - 6
Total - 26
26*3 = 78 = Mio's SDO


Misaka's old opponents and the number of wins they had in Aquqmarine:
Hiiragi Kagami - 5
Saten Ruiko - 3
Minami Chiaki - 1
Izumi Konata - 4
Kushieda Minori - 2
Furukawa Nagisa - 4
Aisaka Taiga - 6
Total - 25
25*3 = 75 = Misaka's SDO


Mio's SDO (78) > Misaka's SDO (78) so Mio wins the necklace. Trying to determine what SDO a character will get before match results are out can be a pain, but it's just adding up numbers if you have all the results.

3) You need to win by as much as possible in your seven matches

This is the tiebreaker incase two characters get 7 wins and have the same SDO. You simply look at the VD for the two characters, highest VD wins. VD is the number of votes you got minus the votes cast against you. Smashing the hell out of all your opponents (hi there Shana) gets you a high VD.
Satisfied? :cooltongue:

Here's an analogy (not entirely accurate, but whatever makes visualizing easier).

Character A is undefeated by beating all lions.
Character B is undefeated by beating all rabbits.

The stronger character gets first place. So who is stronger? Character A or B?
