My Vote Goes For

@pics - Has been a very solid debater during his time on CV. He really helps give anime's that are not represented much on CV some well-deserved respect.

@darthjhawk - Fantastic debater. Consistently produces great debates. Any series he debates with he gives the proper respect. His posts speak for themselves.

@shirso - Just your ideal chill debater. Has done so much for the One Piece debating scene. Respectful and is a super cool person outside of debating. The most causal high-tier debater you will find.

@anthp2000 - One of it not the best Avatar debaters on this website. The detail he puts in his posts is crazy. He is just overall one of the nicest people I have had the privilege to meet on CV.

@professorrespect - I genuinely do not know anyone on CV more knowledgeable in their field than him. He may not CaV but that doesn't mean he shouldn't be recognized for his accomplishments. His reputation will be remembered long after he leaves CV.

There is so many more people I would vote for it was very hard to choose just five. Really sorry to the people who I didn't vote for since there is a lot of them that deserve this honor.

@professorrespect: Extremely knowledgable debater, especially about comic characters. Lives up to his name and I enjoy reading his debates and gives me a general understanding of where comic characters lie. Also his respect threads are pretty cool too.

How on earth are @anthp2000, @hittheassasin, @shirso, and obviously @darthjhawk not already there? and tbh while im at it this was a hard one but @defiant_will definitely should be there as well.

ANTHP shouldve been on there when this first became a thing, HTA has been consistently hilarious for years now, Shirso's Sanji Wank singlehandedly changed the way the vine views OP as a whole, I prophesized DarthJ being here when he first joined this website, and DW has singlehandedly gave more spankings than anyone else I've named.

Is this the HoF or just 2021? If so I will gladly fabricate the evidence for a HoF case for you all.......as soon as you tell me how devilishly handsome I am.

Shame the best most deserving comic debater, toratorn, did not make nominations, but alas I'll do my votes anyway.

  • @bladeoffury - By far the most creative debater on the site, and that title alone makes him deserving imo. His tournament work is absolute gold and honestly he wins more than he has any right to given how unfair matches he'll get himself into(he just beat a team including DC Monarch with just MCU Hela in a high tier tournament)
  • @darthjhawk - obviously
  • @thewatcherking - exposing overly complicated arguments for years
  • @rajjarsalt - regardless of what you think of his debating(I agree it's bad not always the best) - I think he's inarguably one of the best researchers out there, I mean who else would buy Burger King to get tie ins for feats. His insane in depth. research alone warrants a spot, plus he has taken on and beaten some great debaters(or at least gotten close I don't remember the outcomes) like defiant_will and he's beaten me multiple times, as well as convinced me of seriously dumb opinions.
  • @anthp2000 - GOAT analyzer of gifs, incredible essay force, somehow convinced me MCU peak humans can fight super soldiers.

Easily the best 5 on the list that I'm familiar with imo

@takenstew22: You can only vote for 5 people.

EVERYONE: Please tag the people you're voting for, using their full, correctly-spelled, correct name so there is no confusion over who you are voting for. In the past there have been all kinds of confusion and arguments about whether a vote counts because of stuff like spelling and nicknames. I know most people have in fact done tagging, I'm just saying this for emphasis.

If you want to write out an explanation of why you're voting for someone, that's appreciated but not required.

Also, nominees are allowed to make a post explaining why they think you should vote for them. Typical campaign posts would include a description of your debating style/technique/skills as you see them, and links to debates where you think you showed off your abilities clearly.

Adding in some SW debaters.

@breakofdawn from the brief debates we had regarding a lot of issues ranging from Vaylin vs Revan to Karness Muur vs DT Vader, I think he is an awesome SW debater that I look up to

@killbilly another excellent, all-round SW debater whose knowledge of TFU era is arguably unparalleled

@thevivas he doesn't debate SW much anymore, but his skills in NFUs are still quite great

I will need to think about the other 2

@maestromage Keeps the tourney scene alive. That alone is testament.

@deathhero61 Has been around and on the nominee list for years. He payed his dues and still presents great (even if I hate them at times) arguments.

@professorrespect earn my respect. Plus the best respect thread creator hands down.

@thewatcherking: same as above with Maestro. A Tourney maker and I like his debates. Even if he likes anime.

@stormshadow_x I like his taste in characters for debate. He is not a mainstream sheep.

My campaign post:

RIP SG, he lost to Brony

A hooker OG, but now a phony

Untagged, unclaimed, not named, no shame

He lacks debaiting prowess

He watches, baits, and sits quite soundless

Clowned by Gear, but he’s still here

Team SG will always thrive

He will survive!

Okay but now actually, my record:

  • 5-0'd by Brony
  • Lost to Gear like three or four times, I think... made him concede two tho
  • Lost to ANTHP despite having the comic character against an animated character while my character had a sneak attack
  • Have ghosted countless CaVs, it's not even funny
  • Also been ghosted countless times tbf
  • CV's foremost Percy Jackson expert
  • One of CV's expert Eddie Brock reppers
  • 0 tourney wins (finals)
  • 0 tourney wins (semi finals)
  • Went from Iron Man and Hulk wanker to LA wanker (yuck amirite)
  • Rightfully beat DCEU Dooms "adapt" day with MCU Eli "carbon spikes in your lungs" Morrow
  • Probably more

All share similarities in being highly knowledgeable, versatile, or being levelheaded and as unbiased or possible. Raj gets a bad rep but you cannot deny his insane level of evidence he's able to pull out to justify even the wildest statements.

@cocacolaman: ok, thanks and I deleted your earlier post so there's no confusion.

@takenstew22: OK, feel free to change your mind and vote later. It's totally appropriate to list a set of people you want to vote for and a list of honorable mentions.

I'm sorry to say this but there are a few people who ended up on the nominations list who we didn't notice aren't eligible for the HOF in this round. Someone needs to have been on the Vine for a full year to get in the HOF. morningstar999, and aryan87 don't quite meet that timeline (the latter two by the skin of their teeth). We'll keep them on the nominations list for future rounds.

Can anyone fill me in on caocao? They seem to have deactivated their account. If so they're also ineligible.
