For those of you with more mainstream "tastes" (pun entirely intended), there's always the FFWiki's "official" arena, the Dragon's Neck Colosseum. Alternatively, if you like the FEC and want to see other atypical fights, check out our affiliates:

Place your vote in the appropriate section below, preceded by a "#" for numbering. Registered users, please sign votes and comments. Unregistered users... just register and then come back.
In the event that the leading side (assuming there is one, of course) has a lead amounting to less than 20% of its total number of votes, a draw will be called for that fight.
Every week, there will be a new fight. Updates generally occur on Sundays, most likely around 8pm UK time.* If you want to suggest a fight, or support an existing proposal, you should do so here. This is the beating heart of the FEC, as the normal weekly fights are decided there. You'll also find links to the archives on that page.
I suppose I need a spoiler policy: you are free to mention spoilers here, but I do ask that you at least try to be considerate, perhaps by using my spoiler template. Needless to say, this does mean that if you don't want to see spoilers – and not necessarily just ones relating to the fight at hand – you should be careful about reading other users' votes and comments.
Click here to see the FEC statistics and records! Currently hugely outdated. I'll probably get around to recompiling the statistics this week.
Never let it be said that the FEC lacks manliness
The FEC is considerably more lax than the DNC, so I generally request nothing more than sensible behaviour and consideration for other users' opinions, et cetera. However, I will not tolerate any of the following:
Fundamentally discriminatory remarks, e.g. homophobia or racism. Ideally, don't even joke about it
Prolonged and significant deviations from the fight, i.e. going a really long way "off-topic" in comments
Ridiculously long votes. Bulky votes are tolerable, but remember, there's a comments box for a reason. A good rule of thumb is that if it's more than two lines (full page width) or four lines (half page width) when you preview it (and I do hope you are previewing), it's going to be too big, and should go into the comments
Attempts to gain an unfair advantage for your chosen side, e.g. sockpuppets. Canvassing for votes is also questionable, although not explicitly forbidden and it can bring in new voters, so no complaints there... >_>
A breach of these rules earns a Yellow Card. In addition to the immediate penalties, the Yellow Card comes with a "probation period". If another Yellow Card is earned before the probation ends, a Red Card, which indicates a ban, will be issued. The ban may be either temporary or permanent, entirely at my discretion.
The current fight is the 2013 Summer Special!
The (belated) summer special for this year is, on Drake's suggestion, a swimsuit special! Better still, it's something of a miniature tournament for a little added fun. As is usual for specials, it will run for two weeks; however, the first week is four brackets of four, while the second will be the four winners of this week in a single four-way fight for victory.
It gets even better when you look at the participants. It's a complete accident of the randomisation, but S has Serah and Shiva, E has Emina, Y has Yuna, and X has... Rikku and Paine -- SorcerorNobody 11:08, July 1, 2013 (UTC)
