Overview

No Caption Provided

Hello all, and welcome to the inaugural Comic Vine All Star Debate. I was inspired by the recent NBA All Star Game that took place yesterday to create CV's own version of it. So I'll explain the rules and process here.

Basically, the All Star game is an exhibition match consisting of "All Stars".

An All Star is a player who was voted to become one by fans, other professional players, a media panel, and coaches, making it one of the most comprehensive (and accurately reflective of both popularity and talent) voting processes ever. The top players with the most votes become an All Star, and then the All Stars are divided into two teams.

The two individual All Stars with the most votes during the voting process become team captains, and they select from the remaining participants who will be on their team. Then the two teams face each other in a fantastic match.

Rules

So here's how we're gonna do this.

Phase 1

This thread will serve as the nomination round. You must have at least 500 posts or have been on the site for 6 months to cast a nomination vote. You can nominate anyone you want (besides yourself) and nominate however many people you want, but only users with a minimum of 5 nominations will be added to the nominee list.

Phase 2

A separate thread will be created for the voting round. You must have at least 1000 posts or have been on the site for one year to vote. You can only vote for users on the nominee list. The top 20 nominees with the most votes will be collectively referred to as "the panel" and will move onto phase 3.

Phase 3

In order to avoid this being an all out popularity contest, at this stage public voting is gone. Our new panel (top 20 nominees) will vote among themselves to decide the top 10 between them. The top 10 will then be named "All Stars".

Since anyone from the panel can become an All Star, we can ensure that this way, whoever actually ends up being top 10 was voted as such because of their debating talent, not their popularity.

The Debate

The two All Stars who had the most votes will become Team Captains. The Captains will then select 3 people each from the remaining All Stars. 2 of the 3 will become "starters" and all the remaining All Stars are reserves.

The actual All Star debate will be three separate 1v1 matches in CaV style. Whatever team wins 2/3 matches will be named the winning team of the All Star program, a title that will have major credibility behind it.

And another thing, the panel will decide what tiers the debate will be during Phase 3.

Ready. Set. Go!

Edit:

*Attention*

This is something incredibly important that I forgot to put in the OP. This isn't an award ceremony or a Hall of Fame or anything like that. The people who get voted in actually have to participate in a debate.

It should go without saying that the debate HAS TO FINISH.

So you are only allowed to nominate users who've made a CaV or tourney post since the beginning of 2019.

I'll make an exception to the rule on post 5. Anyone who is currently in a CaV or tourney match but is waiting on their opponent(s) to post is eligible.

*whips newspaper before sipping small cup of tea*

Oh.....an all-star game, I'm king James on these boards so I'm 1000% obligated to be involved. Nominate yourse truly if you want an entertaining ball game. This is a self nomination btw.

Otherwise:

  • Leothegreatest - the Draymond Green of the all-star game, we don't know how the hell he got there but we admire his hustle. We need some gags aswell.
  • DarthJHawk- litterally the Chef Curry of CV
  • EmperorThanos - Durantula
  • Jovialma - Damian Lilliard of the vine, only plays at the elite level when contested
  • Azureus- the Kawhi of the league, silent and underrated elite
  • HitTheAssassin - the non-flopping, elite defending and all time scorer Harden.
  • KrieAvenger - Mr. TripleDouble, Westbrook of the vine.
  • Streak619 - Deaaron Fox, most improved and quickest in the league

Meh.....thats all I got so far, I'm sure I'm forgetting somone.

I have decided to remove the minimum vote count to be considered a nominee. So everyone listed currently is a nominee and will move onto phase 2. If there isn't up to 40 eligible nominees by the end of the week I'll skip phase 2 and take the top 20 users for phase 3.

(Also I'll be making edits to my current tally posts periodically to reflect eligible users. Several on there haven't done a debate since the beginning of the year.)

  • Green Snake.
  • Fetts (dunno if he's still active).
  • Thedarkpaladin (he ain't active, but he's pretty damn good when it boils down to Saint Seiya and DB related topics).
  • Toratorn.
  • Panzer X.
  • xZone.
  • Amcu.
  • ANTHP.
  • Wastemanland.

Remember, you can vote for anyone you want, and you have an unlimited number of votes.

But this isn't an award ceremony or a semi Hall of Fame:

The people you vote for WILL BE DEBATING. So you can NOT vote for inactive users. Make sure before casting your votes that your nominations have done one of two things:

  • Completed a CaV or tourney post since January 1, 2019
  • Is currently in a CaV or tourney that was began during or after Fall/Winter of last year and is waiting on their opponent to post.

I vote for:

@toratorn: Encyclopaedic knowledge of Marvel mid tier and a decent debater as well from what I have seen.

@socajunkie: Best OP debater on the site and knows enough about other verses as well as comics to hold his own.

@darthjhawk: Extremely knowledgeable and one of the very few unbiased users when it comes to manga.

@thenewguysnm1: This dude gets a lot of flak and can be pretty obnoxious at times, but that doesn't take away from the fact that he can be a pretty formidable debater when the occasion calls for it. Criminally underrated and deserves a shot at the title imo.
