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.
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.
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.
