Red bloometh the rose of conviction!
And Red bloometh the rose of hate!
Yes, Red bloometh the rose of conquest!
Only blood will sate!

And the war it wageth on!
The storm it rageth on!
The bold ever fight on!
Their lives echo in song!

...So Ravana isn't from VI or IX, nor did he even qualify for the Elimination Round. But the phrase "Prelude to Elimination" sounded a bit too much like "Prelude to Liberation", so he came to sing for us. Or maybe I just wanted the Elimination Round to start on lucky number 400...

Whatever my motivations are, this is merely an announcement that if all the CSS kinks are worked out, we will have the first round of the Elimination Round out this weekend. Until then, you should familiarize yourself with the rules and schedule, and maybe work on your fantasy roster.

It's the moment we've all been waiting for: the beginning of Magicite Madness IV! The first round, if everything goes according to plan, will begin early April, but until then, we need your help to decide some of the tournament rules. Namely:
  • Should we include Terra and Vivi in Magicite Madness? They were the champions of MMI and MMII. Zidane, as the champion of MMIII, will be the final challenger in this tournament and will not be included regardless.
  • How many competitors should we have? Options include 256, 384, or even 512 competitors. You can view the tentative roster here (note that we won't sort them into brackets until the number is chosen).

These polls will run until Saturday, 1 April.

Votes against including Terra and ViviEdit

  1. As fond as I am of Vivi, this tournament needs a new star. Armageddon11 (talk) 20:39, March 28, 2017 (UTC)
  2. I'm all for another star to rise to the top. Keeps things interesting. King of Noobs 20:56, March 28, 2017 (UTC)
  3. I like them both, but no.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 21:11, March 28, 2017 (UTC)
  4. As cool as they are, they need a breather for just a bit longer. We still need fresh blood.Crashb2007 (talk) 03:04, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
  5. GoldenChocobo 12:53, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
  6. might as well leave them out for now Pzykosiz (talk) 21:17, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
  7. As much as I like Vivi, you'd be putting him in alongside what amounts to Cloud Strife's twin sister isn't gonna work out well. Besides, I'd like a bit more variety in this event I've never seen before. Berani00 (talk) 11:04, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
  8. Eventually, there should be a tournament of champions where it's all of the previous winners!Zhor720:00, March 30, 2017 (UTC)

Peanut GalleryEdit

So the argument for including fewer candidates is, essentially, that the first few rounds would be very one-sided as we eliminate all the unimportant characters and characters from spinoffs. While we're going to try to randomize the brackets in such a way that this is minimized, this won't be perfect.

Of course, the argument for including more candidates is simple: more characters, more madness. And more sockpuppet bans! There will be blood! Cat (meowhunt) 20:44, March 28, 2017 (UTC)

I'm so psyched that I get to help organise this. Let's have a nice, clean, fun, happy, friendly...oh, who am I kidding? Let's make this a slaughterhouse.--Kierandell1409 (talk) 10:09, March 29, 2017 (UTC)

just for that, i hope it runs as smoothly as possible, just to spite you Pzykosiz (talk) 21:18, March 29, 2017 (UTC)

Well, looks like we're doing a 512 tournament. If we do eight brackets of 64, how's this sound for a schedule: Round 1 fights last two days. Every two days, we do another bracket. Round 2 fights last three days. This time though, we do two brackets every three days. At the end of this, we're down to 128 competitors, and it's only been four weeks. Round 3 onwards, fights last for a week. For Round 3, we do two brackets at a time. Round 4, we do four brackets at a time. All remaining round we do all the fights for that round in that week. By my calculations, we should be done by mid-to-late July. What do you think?--Kierandell1409 (talk) 02:20, April 2, 2017 (UTC)
