It's a simple numbers game, Ka-pi. When each round has anywhere between 30 to 50 votes in total, a group of only 6 to 10 people can already control 20% of the votes. While that's not enough to guarantee an outcome, it's enough to skew the outcome because many rounds are rather close to begin with.

I want to do an experiment for GUT 2018. I want to see if we can get Libara to win, particularly because he almost never posts on the site and is thus an unknown to many people, but he is fairly well-known among the Discord users. I think that would be a good way to put this theory into practice.

The six active discord users? Yes, cant wait.

You're saying you're going to attempt to rig it in order to test a theory about it being rigged?

Well, all the previous winners have at least been fairly well-known on the site, unlike Libara. So, it would be the best way to test it.

That's a great way to make yourself popular. Openly talk about plans to rig the contest and completely ruin it.

On a more serious note, examining the past would not only be a faster method, but also make you less of a jerk.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Well, the thing is, the GUT is determined by nothing other than popularity as a metric. So is it really rigging it if it's within the rules? Mind you, this is just an idea, rather than something that would ever feasibly come to fruition, because there'd have to be a certain amount of people actually willing to do it in the first place, and I assume that won't happen.

This isn't an auxiliary thread for discussing the GUT, stay on topic please.



In any case, I had wondered about making a Wikia on it before, but I decided against it because there was no way I was willing to put in the effort to do that.

You mean we can't discuss VGC history in a thread about VGC history?

In your case it's whining, so no.

Now you have the time? Go for it.

 

Jeez Rol, Mods be going at you as of late. I feel like Montana Hatchet is back in power.
