    One Piece Bet Thread

    This thread fills the purpose to make your bet and guesses on who will win this tournament.

    There is two modes: You can either vote for who will win or vote what difference will be between each one. You can see upcoming fights in this thread.

    If you guess who will win, it will be considered 1 point.
    If you guess the difference between each other (In percentages) it will be 3 points.

    (If both asseveration end being true, you'll get 1 vote for the first and 1 point for the other)

    Each round I'll be updating this thread with the ones who bet and in the end the winner will have something. It's secret, so you shouldn't know.

    SPECIAL: Guess who the winner of this tournament will be NOW. It will be worth 5 points. You can only bet for this NOW in the first round.


    Good luck!

    Re: Bet Thread

    MASS EDIT - just noticed the last 16 table

    Whitebeard gets 89% of the votes to knock out Kuma, and Akianu gets 98% vs Roo - Damn you, Sachsenhesse!
    Mihawk gets 74% of votes, and knocks out Yasopp, Garp gets 56% to knock out Dragon
    Blackbeard vs Enel should be interesting, but I'd hazard a guess at 61% of votes going to BB
    Gol D. Roger vs Marco gives a 'shock' result, 58% of votes going to Marco
    Rayleigh 100%'s Ace, and Doflamingo only manages 2 votes as he gets knocked out by shanks (97% to Shanks)


    Next round, Whitebeard wins 67% vs Akianu, Garp gets 61% of the votes to knock out Mihawk, BB beats Marco with 70% of votes, and Rayleigh vs Shanks... I'd have to give it to Rayleigh, solely for the people that won't vote for people that haven't shown anything. 54% to Rayleigh.

    Whitebeard beats Blackbeard, 52% to 48%, and Rayleigh beats Garp with 61%. Then, in the final, Rayleigh gets 62% of the votes to win - if there's a battle for third place Blackbeard takes it 71%-29%.


    So, how's that?

    Also, what would happen if user A gets, say, 27 points, and user 1 gets 23, but user A bet on user # winning and user 1 bet on user A winning? So, A would win, and by winning, not win. But, since he no longer won, would user B still get the 5-point bonus?
    Or, to put it simply, how does the bonus 5 points work when calculating the winner?

    Re: Bet Thread

    Whitebeard and Akainu both beat their opponents with 100% of the votes.

    Mihawk wins with 80% over Yasopp. Garp wins with 70% over Dragon.

    Blackbeard will probably win over Enel with 65% of votes.

    Not really too sure if Roger's hype will be enough to overcome Marco. There seem to be a few people who don't want people who we haven't seen fight get by solely on their reputation. However, Roger will probably still win, with about 68% of votes.

    Rayleigh beats Ace with 85% of votes. Shanks has a flawless victory over Doflamingo with 100% of votes.

    In the next round, Whitebeard takes out Akainu with 82% of the total votes. Mihawk versus Garp is a tough call, but I'll say Garp wins with around 67% of the votes. Roger should barely edge out Blackbeard with 55% of the votes. Shanks will also have a narrow margin over Rayleigh, with 58% of the total.

    Then, hopefully Whitebeard will win over Roger, with a narrow margin of 53% of votes. Shanks and Garp will also be close, but I'll give my vote to the younger generation and say that Shanks wins with around 60% of the votes.

    Finally, Shanks is the ultimate winner of the tournament with 65% of the votes.

    I think you're misunderstanding things Kazu-sama. The five points are for guessing the One Piece character who wins the tournament, not for which user wins the betting.

    Well, it's more interesting when people acts according to others. The changes that are made by the Bets is what I think makes it more interesting, because you need to predict what others predict in order to success.

    Re: Bet Thread

    So far everyone guessed right, but nobody got the % right. I blame troll voters - no way 8 people seriously believed that Kuma could beat WB. Yeah, it'd be a good battle, but...

    That's what I like about bets. You can always change the outcome, so you must predict the troll as well. :P
