Do handicaps stack if you place if you place in the Top 3 consecutively? >_>

Of course. That's the plan. I'm not sure why you keep winning, because your exhibition limit passed a long time ago. :P

It did? I guess I'm just playing for fun from here on out. That doesn't mean I'll hold back, though. =D

I got 4 right, according to those answers. My overall score will suck, I bet.
But the results make up for it~

Remember, some of the Top 3 may be ineligible for prizes already, so you should try to get as high as you can~

Congrats on winning frustra! I was making a big comeback in the later rounds but it wasn't enough to get by you. Also congrats to Umi on a top 3 finish.

I'm pretty surprised I managed to finish in second place despite the handicap. I just got really lucky from Sapphire 5 onward with just about everything falling my way.

Job well done frustra, TRE and Umi!

Finished joint 4th this round and 8th overall, but managing to stay in the Top 10 was good enough I suppose. =)

Biggest improvement over Sapphire goes to Nagato Yuki. If you asked me before I looked over all of my stats, I would have guessed that it was Victorique that grew the most over Sapphire. Ever since Gosick ended, Victorique has shot up in strength like a rocket. This included beating characters she would not have been able to beat in the past. Yuki's growth was a lot less flashy since there weren't very many characters ahead of her to begin with and Kanade was just way too far away. With this boost, Yuki moves into a fairly clear second place in my stats. Following behind Yuki and Victorique, Tsumugi and Azusa also showed significant growth. In Azusa's case, it was just enough and just in time to beat Shana. Even though Azusa directly beat Shana, she is still lower in my stats because Shana did better during the other 6 rounds of Sapphire. Other characters that went up in strength are Index and Taiga.

While Index went up in strength, Last Order completely crashed. Last had some strength at the start of Sapphire but she kept disappointing time and again and in the end barely got past Nymph and already outright lost to Rin. Infinite Stratos characters are still falling in strength at an alarming rate. Lingyin and Charlotte continue to fall apart. Lingyin is already pretty much at the bottom of the rankings along with the other Infinite Stratos characters but Charlotte still has a chance at making the Top 16. Charlotte needs to get her act together soon. Nadeko and Ayase also seemed to fall by quite a bit over Sapphire.

Did ok for a quick fantasy; I guess it makes sense, since without much statistics there's no need to put alot of time into it.

Gratz to frustra, TRE, and Umi!

Once again, KS fails to keep TRE down. :P

IMO, KS's next ploy is to make people guess characters exact vote numbers.

What, there is no ploy. I already repealed the fun CD. If I really wanted to keep TRE down, I would've have made the questions for Emerald way easier. =/
