2014 Prelim general discussion

Post by maglor » Fri Jan 31, 2014 8:44 pm

This post is for discussing upcoming matches. There isn't strict limit on what can be posted as long as it is somewhat related to upcoming and potential matches in the future, except for very negative comments/posts about almost anything. Also please refrain from posting too much support materials for a character. A little bit of support post can be tolerated, but any post, that for some reason is deemed to be, or have become, too excessive may be deleted without warning.

Hmmm..... looks like the nova matches are alittle more difficult to predict than I expected. No eliminations for nova in first round, but results could affect who is strong enough to advance. I'll wait until following round to predict Stella matches.
Nova matches, possible contendersShow
(7) Yoshino and Azuki Azusa, Nyaruko..... interesting
(8) Yaya, Yui, Ririchiyo..... (Actually I know 6 out of 7 in this group)
(9) Nase Mitsuki, Natsume <Raven>, Ai Fuyuumi (5 out of 7 I know)
(10) Mirai (Doesn't look like a strong group even with Toka Takanashi and Oragami)
(11) Kotori, Mikan, Kudo Asuka, Yuigahama, Noumi (Looks like a group of death to me based on personal favorites)
(12) Kurumi, Yusa Emi, Rin Natsume, Neptune

Oh well, time to start writing previews.

Mmmm, Oreshura's, Oregairu's, and Machine-doll's badges are so lovely~ <3 >w<
I also like NagiAsukara's and the Monokuma :)

So far, Stella 5 is the most difficult group to choose.

Doing the fantasy I realized how little I can gauge a girl's strength, except for the clear winners in each group.

Waiting for results of:
Stella 5
Nova 9

Well I guess that's a good thing, it means the staff are seeding properly.

Anyway I'm already going to have to abstain once in two groups (10 and 11)...
Just from this I don't have high hopes for my number of Nova girls this year.
Well even still let's look forward to it.

Can I ask regarding previews

If I want to sumbit them to the site, who sohuld i give them to and how should the fromat be
There's really nothing special about Stella 1 and 2, with exception of whether Kurisu or Meiko takes 2nd

Stella 3 also seems to be normal and all but a fight between Eucliwood Yozora and Hinagiku mgiht be interesting

Rozen Maiden recently got a hd version made of it, so Suseiseki might have a chance to finally not finish last.

Stella 5 is rather... hard to choose. With ppl as loud as Minori,Yui,Masami or ppl who are elegant like Soseiseki and Mashiro whom recently joined Stella, it's kind hard to pick.

Stella 6: Either Ayase wins this or Haruhi perfoms one of her upsets this round, prob not. Nymph might have a chance

Nova 7: I'm still wondeirn why Madoka fans keep hanging on to their characters.Almost every year do I see some madoka characters in nova
But there are some strong characters here as well, first place might not be that simple

Nova9: We have Mituski,Manka and Nastume. Kinda hard

Nova 10: Despite having some of the most variety of characters, they are all rather average when faced alone

There will be a thread up later where you can submit previews.

Format is up to you, but there are certain things to keep in mind.
For now, you can use last year's thread as a reference: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3600" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Post them in this thread~ The format is the same as in past years unless Mari-nee changes it later, and guidelines are in the OP of that thread. Examples can be seen in the link in Kanocchi's post~

I believe prelims previews are 1v1v1v1v1v1v1. Meaning you got to write for all 7 girls. Correct me if I'm wrong. Have never done prelims previews.

Nah, the initial seeding is always flawed. We'll know the proper seeding once Prelim I is over.

My view,
Stella 1, Kuroneko easy win, with Last Order and Yami lead the others, Nanoha elimated.
Stella 2, Kadane easy win, other will put up quite a fair fight, with Holo, Kurusi and Meiko fight for 2nd place, while Tsukasa, Mikuru and Maria try to get themselves being elimated.
Stella 3, Eu win, Hinagiku or Yozora runner up, Ami and Rika likely will be elimated.
Stella 4, Misaka win, Chii or Hitagi will be eliminated.
Stella 5, Mashiro win with decent margin, Yui or Index runner up, Minori likely get eliminated.
Stella 6, Haruhi vs Ayase for the top spot, while Louise and Nymph will be safe from elimination, Kallen most likely unable to go through.
Nova 7, Yoshino win, while others put up a fair fight as Sayaka and Yuno try to avoid the last place.
Nova 8, This group is tough for me, Yaya will have better chance to win, but still a quite balance group.
Nova 9, Momo will go to 2nd round, while others quite hard to guess.
Nova 10, Totally no idea who will win and who will be eliminated. Tōka have upper hand, but Mirai and Origami can challenge her, Kōko and Suzuka have small advantage as series still on-going, Frey and Kazusa will have equal chance for not go to 2nd round.
Nova 11, Kotori win, Yui, Ōka, Mikan and Hotaru will try to being eliminated.
Nova 12, Kurumi win with tiny margin while Neptune come 2nd, others have equal chance to be eliminated but Rin will have upper hand.

p/s, I apologies if I said your girl(s) being eliminated, I just write down what I think.

nova: (not true eliminations)

sayaka

Some of those nova ones are rather tough to call. But they aren't truly eliminated anyway - at least not yet. Last year noone who lost on the first 2 days made it into regular season.
