    Hahaha. Actually, we have no idea what happens to you. Maybe you come up out from inside Reverse Mountain, get shot up in the air, and land in some random place on the globe. Who knows.

    Crocus joined when the Roger pirates began their adventure on the Grand Line.

    Anyway, when this tournament began, I assumed Whitebeard would win the votes.

    Personally, I think it would be a shame for the undefeated Pirate King not to win.

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

    This is a tournament of individuals. Roger became pirateking, but he didn't do that alone, he had a crew, friends, family etc., not to mention the circumstances - we still don't know what it takes to get to Raftel - and whatever else played into that like knowledge - will of D., lost century - and so forth.

    Or in short: wait how people vote

    You could have said that in the previous Roger battles.

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

    i can see shanks winning this tournament I'll vote for white beard since someone must have surpassed Gol. D at some point in OP universe and i think this man was the one in his prime

    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!!!
    I'm glad this tournament happened, but it should have been tier'd up... and no feat characters like Roger/Dragon/ect. would not be used, and it could've been more fun... I knew from the beginning it would with no doubt be one of these two winning...

    WB has my vote... because Gold Roger has no feats and I'd have him lose against Don Krieg if it came to it... sure Roger's the Pirate King but it doesn't mean much in this tournament in which he has no feats other than holding a pistol and sword and screaming at Shiki...
    I have an opinionDon't hate me for it...

    True, but of course Roger did it with a much, much smaller group of people than any of his rivals had. I mean, look how many pirates Whitebeard had! Shiki had a whole armada too. Garp and Sengoku often went together, along with Marine warships. So if anything, it speaks to the individual power of each crew member, and Roger for being the boss of such monsters.

    My vote goes for Whitebeard. Roger X Whitebeard had an epic battle sometime in the past and I remember it being tied and we have seen some kickass abilities/powers of Whitebeard in ace execution war saga and we had only heard about Roger. So my vote goes to Whitebeard

    In direct fights between two whole groups, I would agree that the smaller one has more powerful individuals. However, we do not know about the way to Raftel / becoming pirateking yet, so it might as well be easier for smaller groups. On the other hand, Garp and Sengoku represent the Marines, the military/police of the Worldgovernment (as far as we know) so they naturally need bigger groups. Shiki, afair, was plotting to topple the Worldgovernment, which is a diffrent task as well and similarly Whitebeard settled down as Yonkou for which he needed a big crew (do we actually know his crews size in the days of fighting Roger?).
    So altogether, their groups rather follow the function they have in the manga and we can't necessarily derive their strength from that. Interestingly, Luffy took on the role of protecting FI which doesn't really fit the crew's size, but that's another discussion.

    tl;dr: neither title nor the size of the combatants crew help us decide this match. follow your heart?

    Whitebeard's goal was to have a family, so the size of his crew was an end in and of itself, not something he needed for a secondary goal or for power.

    I also think territory is less about having someone stationed there to actively defend it and more about the threat of reprisal if you mess with it.
    The Grain Pirates. Scourge of Spelt, Corsairs of Corn, Rogues of Rye, Buccaneers of Barley, the Freebooters of the Farmland.
    What reason is there to stop a man from sailing?

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

    Have to agree with Sachsenhesse here. I'm sure Gol D Roger had his own strengths that were unique and formidable enough to scare the ish out of many people (both marines and pirates). However, we've witnessed a lot more from Whitebeard during the Marineford Arc and he definitely showed his value as a Yonkou. Looking back on it now, I would've loved to see more but from the amount of injuries sustained while already suffering from a severe illness you got to hand it to him. Legendary stuff~

    My vote goes to the old man!

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

    I don't know so much of the power of . Gol D. Roger but for akanui to say that he was a legend and whitebeard wasn't close to him but i know akanui did it to pissed off ace also but if just one pirate has explored the grand line (new world), and became the only pirate king, i vote for . Gol D. Roger but i would like to more about him and his battle skills while whitebeard is a freaking monster and he was also a legend to me..
    living in the darkness and now with a new light, i will raise to a new beginning...

    Yeah!
    WB won!!

    Thanks to that, we can have a great Finale, where we can actually discussed things such as Powers and Abilities, instead of Fame and Reputation...


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

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

    WTF? We have seen the limits of sick Edward so that's why he wins.

    So by this logic, if we have Roger Vs Hannyabal, the second one has to win because he has showed his limits.

    May i think that in the popularity poll Whitebeard won by 59.18%?
