Congratulations, Jimcloud!


There was a time, back in May of 2010, when the supreme transcendental nonentity, Sorceror Nobody, thought it would be amusing to brand some l'Cie. It was very much just for the sake of mild amusement, and he did not expect more than a couple of users to volunteer.

Five months and twenty-three l'Cie later, Sorceror Nobody was astonished by just how many users seem thrilled at the prospect of eternal servitude with a risk of eternal damnation. In fact, he was beginning to consider how best to start making use of them for the purposes of entertainment. Certainly, having l'Cie whose Foci are largely beneficial to the Wiki is nice, but it was about time that something fun was extracted from them.

A suggestion by one of the l'Cie, Bond em7, eventually cropped up in the Flan's Elbow Colosseum. Remarking that it "could be really exciting... or just a colossal waste of time... but what do we have if not time right?", he made the proposal of a tournament between the Sorceror l'Cie. Thus the Grand Sorceror l'Cie Tournament was born, and after a month of consideration and planning, and with a further dozen l'Cie available for inclusion, it is approaching fruition. Unlike the superficially similar Magicite Madness II tournament, this tournament has only thirty-two participants. Another difference between this and Magicite Madness II is that this is a double-elimination tournament rather than a single-elimination one, meaning that a l'Cie has to lose two fights before being knocked out.

If you want to help spread the word about this tournament, this banner and this "popup" can be used.


Rules[edit source]

  1. Each round lasts one week, and the total duration of the tournament will be eleven weeks.
  2. The closing of each round, and start of the next one, occurs at 20:00 (UTC) every Monday.
  3. Only registered users may vote, and must ensure that they are logged in when they do so.
    Furthermore, the wiki's signature policy applies: username, userpage link, and timestamp.
  4. Votes and comments constituting personal attacks or insults will be removed. Keep it civil.
  5. In the event of a tie, GF's random die-rolling function will be used to determine the winner.
  6. Misconduct may be punishable by revocation of voting privileges for the entire tournament.
  7. Any l'Cie who attempts to corrupt the fairness of the tournament risks being turned Cie'th.
  8. Sorceror Nobody is in charge, with further management provided by DSS and Paramina.
  9. If any user suspects another of misconduct, they are strongly requested not to voice this
    in public. Instead, they're advised to inform only Sorceror Nobody, DSS and/or Paramina.


Specific details about votes:
If any l'Cie finds a vote that they believe to be questionable, generally on the basis of Rule 4, they may contact any of the three tournament managers with their concerns. All such claims will be reviewed, and if the claim is upheld, the vote will be dealt with accordingly. However, repeated unjustified claims could be treated as a breach of Rule 6 and/or 7, and could result in any further claims from the l'Cie in question being ignored.

It should be noted that although canvassing for votes is technically not prohibited, it is less than sporting, and is therefore not encouraged. More importantly, something that is expressedly forbidden is canvassing anywhere that is likely to give a particular advantage, e.g. a l'Cie canvassing on a wiki that they edit on but their opponent does not. The only places where canvassing is permitted are the Final Fantasy Wiki and the #FFWiki IRC channel.

In all issues concerning management of votes, Sorceror Nobody's decision (after discussion with DSS and Paramina) is final.

Secondary bracket[edit source]

Because the tournament is double-elimination, when a l'Cie loses a match in the main bracket, they are not knocked out. Instead, they drop into this bracket, and it is only after losing a match here that the l'Cie is knocked out entirely. The winner of Round S7 here will go on to face the winner of the main bracket in the Grand Final, while the l'Cie in Round S8, competing for third place, are the runners-up from the two brackets.

"Instant Awesome Just Ask Nelo" Sorceror Nobody

In U.S. $$$, just how much exactly IS 50 pounds (assuming I tied the correct currency to that mark)? King Nothing Where's your crown? 12:22, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

It is around $80, last time I checked. Ultima 12:37, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
Firstly, I'm not sure why you're bothering to work it out. Didn't I say those rumours aren't true? Secondly, why on earth would you want to convert it into dollars? That's not even real money! -- Sorceror Nobody 14:46, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
You DID say that the rumors were false, but curiosity demanded that I ask anyhow. Secondly, dollars are real money. They're... just not the best kind. King Nothing Where's your crown? 14:56, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
EDIT: Also, I had an idea for a completely non-FF related fight, and was wondering if I could still get it in your arena, or if I should post it in mine: Adam Savage vs. Jamie Hyneman. Or, if the names don't ring any bells immediately, a battle of the Mythbusters. King Nothing Where's your crown? 15:00, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
O_O THAT WOULD BE AWESOME. All things considered, then, it's just as well that the FEC regulations state that awesomeness can override the "at least 50% FF" rule :P -- Sorceror Nobody 15:51, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, nevermind, I went ahead and suggested it in my arena, where I also changed the fight. King Nothing Where's your crown? 15:55, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
