    Re: Semifinal 1: Whitebeard vs. Gol D. Roger

    It's funny really. Roger wins against Whitebeard because he's the king. Next round, he fights with either his apprentice or the guy who is equal or not much different in strength than his apprentice.[/tournament]

    Heh

    Re: Semifinal 1: Whitebeard vs. Gol D. Roger

    Please, for the love of God, vote for Whitebeard.
    Yes, Roger is the Pirate King, but we have no idea about his ability.

    We CANNOT have a guy we don't know winning the tournament!!!


    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    Oh yes.... Whitebeard was sick and Roger was dead... A sick vs a dead ....

    The Epicness of Wbs death itself should be the reason to vote him.... People have followed him like anything... Why even a question like that is coming ... Whitebeared was a person with no D in his name but seems like he understood well the will of D.,.. out of respect to the character .... I will go for Whitebeared,,,

    Guys, if Roger (whose abilities and powers we actually now nothing about) wins here, then he'll most likely win against Shanks (or Mihawk, but lol) in the next round aswell. Making Gol D. Roger the strongest man in One Piece ... which is corny as sh*t.
    So my vote goes to Whitebeard, for an awesome final round of this tournament.

    But don't expect any Manga drawing here, haven't done that in a long time.

    Well he shouldn't have been in the tournament at all. Neither should anyone we haven't seen fighting. You can twist and turn it all you want. The fact we haven't seen him fight makes no difference, because, as Oda stated, they were equals. It all comes down to who you like more.

    Heh

    Re: Semifinal 1: Whitebeard vs. Gol D. Roger

    It's impossible to know who is stronger here as Oda himself said so many times that they draw. Sure Roger was te Pirate King, however WB himself said to Roger that he didn't want the title (I don't remember the chapter, they were on an island talking, Roger offered to tell WB where the One Piece was and WB refused) so I'm not using the title as a way to decide the winner.
    I'll vote WB for two reasons. One, he was the last survivor. Even if Roger didn't surrender to the Marines, he would have died before WB because of his disease. Second, because if Roger wins hhere, there'll be no discussion next round as he won against WB based on is title not is fighting abilities, which we never saw.

    They fought to a draw in the past, but roger was sick in the past, and if a sick roger can tie healthy whitebeard, i'll give it to roger

    By that logic, Whitebeard already lost to Blackbeard, haha.

    I'll go with Roger, since by tournament rules, we go by the character as we last saw them.
    We saw Roger in his prime, but Whitebeard as old and sick (and as Marco said, not evading attacks he used to be able to).
    So if they used to be on par, then the rules dictate Roger wins.

    ... But it's not like people have actually been voting based off the rules... just voting however they want, haha. *shrug*

    Also, good catch. Roger wasn't even in his prime, he was sick. And still tied with a healthy, in-his-prime Whitebeard.

    Roger wasn't sick during his entire pirating career. Only last couple of years.

    That's the same time he was in the New World, and had his fights with Whitebeard.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but Oda never gave a precise timeline of Roger's voyages through the world. He was sick during his last 2 or 3 years (I can't remember which) when Crocus was with them. He was practically a kid when we saw him recruit Rayleigh. He was probably around Whitebeard's age so it would mean he was around 50 when he was executed.
    It leaves plenty of time for skirmishes with Whitebeard. Nobody ever said Whitebeard was born in New World and never left it. They could have fought in several places. Besides, it's not like it took Roger 30 years to get to New World. That's a little too much.

    Anyway, it all boils down to Roger starting his pirating career as a kid and ending around his fifties. Which means he was perfectly fine most of his life and we have no reason to think that any kind of illness made him weaker in his fights with Whitebeard.

    Heh

    Crocus joined them at the beginning of the Grand Line. So unless Roger and Whitebeard never clashed anywhere in the Grand Line, either the first half or the New World, then the reasoning stands.

    Yes, but once you sail through the entire Grand Line, you return back to the start.
