League of Thrones: Round 13, now with 48 characters

158 posts in this topic

Welcome to the "League of Thrones"-poll

In this continuous poll 48 characters are matched up each month 1v1 to see who's more popular. At the end of each month they get ranking points that determine the matches for the following month. The amount of points each character receives equals to the percentage of votes they got compared to their opponent, the points from up to 12 rounds are summed up to get their total score. After 12 months a round becomes obsolete and will no longer affect the rankings.

For each round, neighbouring characters in the ranking will be matched up against each other, which means number 1 will fight number 2, number 3 will fight number 4 and so on. This is the case, unless two people have already gone up against each other within the last 11 rounds, in which case for a certain character the next-lower available oppenent will be found. So you won't see the same matchups over and over again, while there will still be some duels between very high-level characters every single round.

The 48 characters currently included are: 

Aemon Targaryen (Maester Aemon)
Arianne Martell
Arya Stark
Asha Greyjoy
Barristan Selmy
Brandon Stark (Bran)
Brienne Tarth
Brynden Tully
Catelyn Tully
Cersei Lannister
Daenerys Targaryen (Dany)
Davos Seaworth
Doran Martell
Eddard Stark
Eddison Tollett
Euron Greyjoy
Garlan Tyrell
Gendry
Ghost
Jaime Lannister
Jeor Mormont
Jon Connington
Jon Snow
Jorah Mormont
Mance Rayder
Margaery Tyrell
Meera Reed
Melisandre
Missandei
Oberyn Martell
Petyr Baelish
Podrick Payne
Ramsay Bolton
Renly Baratheon
Robb Stark
Roose Bolton
Samwell Tarly
Sandor Clegane
Sansa Stark
Stannis Baratheon
Theon Greyjoy
Tormund Giantsbane
Tyrion Lannister
Tywin Lannister

Sounds interesting!

I have a couple questions about the format. First, how did you come up with it? Second, how will you avoid a situation where after assigning most of the matches, the next character has already faced off against all of the remaining ones?

Possible characters to add:

Missandei

Beric Dondarrion

Margaery Tyrell

Asha Greyjoy

Doran Martell

Mance Rayder

Brynden Tully

Brynden Rivers

Duncan the Tall

Thanks for your feedback:)

I just wanted to have a continous character poll and sort of built the format around it, and I figured that strong characters would have to go up against each other to make it interesting. I also didn't want too many characters for the time being, because I would like to see if this format even works in practice.

I guess if it doesn't add up in the end, I would have to go back and unmake the last match I assigned and reassign the person with the higher score to the next lower available opponent. If it doesn't work itself out at that point, I would go further back and so on. But since the amount of characters will be a power of 2, I think it will resolve itself nicely most of the time. If there were, say, 34 characters, it would probably happen a lot.

 

Edit: an example to clarify what I mean:

If everyone is already assigned except numbers 31 and 32 in the ranking, who already faced each other, I would go back and unmake the last match, which would happen to be 29 against 30 in this example. I would then go ahead and instead assign 29 to 31 and then 30 to 32, none of which have played against each other before, hopefully. If 30 has already played against 32, or 29 against 31, I would instead assign 29 to 32 and 30 to 31. If it still doesn't add up, I would unmake another match. It happens to be 24 against 25, since 26-28 just happened to be assigned much earlier in this example. The next match I would try is 24 against 29 (since 24 has a higher score than 25, and 29 is the next lower available opponent) and then work it out from there.

Ok, it's the 1st of March, so I'd like to begin the tournament. I hope more people will participate in this once it starts.

I have decided to pick Asha, Doran, Mance and Brynden as additional characters, because they're the highest-ranked characters from Zizoz' requests above. I then assigned all 32 characters at random for round 1, which produced some interesting results. So, who's your favourite character in these matches:

 

Jorah Mormont   vs.   Jon Snow

Varys   vs.   Arya Stark

Yoren   vs.   Sansa Stark

Brienne Tarth   vs.   Daenerys Targaryen

Stannis Baratheon   vs.   Sandor Clegane

Eddard Stark   vs.   Tyrion Lannister

Asha Greyjoy   vs.   Cersei Lannister

Davos Seaworth   vs.   Oberyn Martell

Brynden Tully   vs.   Mance Rayder

Barristan Selmy   vs.   Jaime Lannister

Wyman Manderly   vs.   Samwell Tarly

Petyr Baelish   vs.   Aemon Targaryen

Robb Stark   vs.   Brandon Stark

Renly Baratheon   vs.   Tormund Giantsbane

Catelyn Tully   vs.   Theon Greyjoy

Doran Martell   vs.   Eddison Tollett

 

This round will officially last until the 31st of March, I'll probably count the results and start the next round at some point on the 1st or 2nd of April. If you want to participate, just post your votes here or pm me, whatever you like better.

I would also like some ideas for a more catchy name than "League of Characters":D

Can you add some historical characters, which don't, you know, suck.

It's Bran, as indicated in the OP. I probably should've made that clearer. Also, Aemon Targaryen is Maester Aemon.

Sorry my mistake. I have difficulties to *see* Bran as a Brandon, when Aemon is always Maester Aemon.

But who do you see as cool?  Seems some disagree based on voting.

Voting for round 1 will theoretically end today, thanks a lot to everyone who participated so far. For a while I thought this poll would bomb, but now it didn't and I'm happy about that.

I will probably count the results and post the matches for next round tomorrow or on Saturday, which means if you still want to vote you can do so and I'll include them up to when I actually start calculating the results. I will let you know once I close this round for real. Until then, you may edit your votes if you've changed your mind about something. I also thought it might be helpful to include the ranking and matches for any current round in the OP, which I will do starting with Round 2.

I just feel like it'a a little unASOIAFlike. You could probably name any poll about any subject on the planet "Kool Kids" and that will just confuse people.
