Fate drops out of Top 16

Post by Seanstar » Tue Jul 13, 2010 6:44 am

So with the last match(Ruby 4), Fate dropped to slot 17. Is she gonna stay there or is there reasonable odds for the former tiara winner to make it into DE? Odds on winning? as the year's gone on she seems to be getting weaker and weaker...thoughts?

Personally Im cheering it on...MGLN just rubbed me the wrong way (watched the first 2 seasons, couldn't stomach a third...) and Ive never been particularly behind either character...

Personally myself, I wouldn't mind if Shana Dropped to 49th , but we dont' all get what we want. I would suspect Fate has a decent enough chance of gaining the 16th slot - Its going to be Fate Rin or Hitagi~

I am personally hoping she remains in the top 16.

(id also like Rin in there also, but hey then id have my top 3 in the DE)

There might be a chance that Fate might just lose it this time,
It might be that older series might lose it charms and slowly losing it fans unless there are new season,
Speaking of that, I wonder how Taiga would do three years from now.....

Probably Hina? :D
I feel bad for Fate, but I have to say that CLANNAD has wiped out Fate this time. = =
And K-ON as well, the 2nd season will be their last season. I wonder if Mio can maintain her strength even for next year.

From winning in 2008 to barely fighting to just stay in the top 16, isn't it sad Fate?, sadly more voters and a stronger field in general is seeming to take it's toll


idk if she'll fail to make it but all those characters she's competing with all have a pretty good chance of making it so we should have a pretty good race for that last slot

Since Aquamarine, Fate's highest rank was 12th (held from Topaz 5 to 7). She was previously out of the Top 16 from the end of Sapphire through Emerald 3.

A "fun fact" is back at Aquamarine 1 when Shana def. Fate 3528-2060. Because it was the very first round and that was the largest winning margin, it put Fate at 50th place for the day.

Fate-chan will make top 16. :tearsad:

I blame 17th on bad demographics (And Xinil), HMPH.

Naturally, Fate can't win the Tiara this year, so as long as Fate makes top 16 and Shana dies (preferably sooner than later) in DE, I'll be content.

The only thing that will change between 16, 17, and 18th place going into the final round of Ruby will be SDO. I can see Hitagi, Fate and Rin still with the same record going into Diamond (unless Rin beats Kagami or Fate beats Nadeko).

I reckon Fate will make it into the DE, but it should be a good battle over the last slot.

Recent performance makes me think that there might be chance that 'Side with the Winner' Bandwagon voters go back to Shana from Mio if Shana's dominating performance continues, for some of my statistical indicators suggest chance of Shana overtaking Mio. If that happens, Shana will be very difficult to kill. You better pour out your resources for Hina in order to discourage those bandwagon people, and keep Shana at 3rd seed, where the path to tiara is tougher compared to the first 2 seeds.

Well, I'm sad to see Fate drop out of the top 16. But I still have confidence on her since she had beaten her main competetor Hitagi and Rin. If they finally get the same winning matches numbers, Fate sitll grab the last ticket to DE.

You know, I always thought the (Nano)Fate votebase is weird as hell; they seem to like constantly disappearing and appearing out of nowhere. They were strong enough to push Fate to the tiara in 2008, but is somehow fading at a speed only second to that of the RM faction and Vietnamese Negima faction. At times, Fate can pull miracles out of thin air to upset her opponents, but other times she slumps completely. I suppose this could be the result of a limited core fanbase, although I still doubt it would be this sporadic.

My conclusion? Demi. kidnaps children and makes them vote for Fate on select match days.

Since when did Demi. limit himself to just kidnapping children? >_>


From the look of things, everything is going to come down to Diamond 7. Hitagi vs Rin is a Diamond 7 match. Coincedently (or maybe just as planned) if Fate beats Konata on that day, she'll win via tiebreaker.

Hay you guyz, I only kidnap children on weekends, so that they don't miss out on school during their absence.
Better schooling makes for better ISML picks, etc. >_<

True, Diamond 7 is probably where it will come down to. However, Fate defeating Nadeko or Rin defeating Kagami could change things. Either is possible, although neither is a favorite to win the match.

I could see one of the matches coming true more than the other if a certain someone gets his act together... -_-

I don't know why some ppl blame on Shana. Demi, Fate won a champion in 2008 but what does Shana get from ISML? People will always remember the top 1 but not the second. I also very sad because Fate dropped to slot 17, but i feel sorrow that someone want Shana to die....
Not only Shana def. Fate, my opinion,....this is not Shana false

Well, this is under the assumption I'm hating on Shana because of ISML.

I share the same sentiments for Konata and Taiga (Mio is on the verge of falling to that level with her non-changing antics).

Shana just happens to be the only one I have to worry about winning the Tiara. Not that the one who can beat her is much better. And then there is Hinagiku -- who, isn't bad but certainly not worthy of a second Tiara to me.

So yeah, I'm screwed either which way. ^.^

Though to be fair, I said I wanted her to 'die' in DE, not for her to literally die in the anime, or something. That would just give her sympathy moe points anyways...
