And the winner is. . .
This month, we settled once-and-for-all a question which has preoccupied the fandom since Teresa's first appearance in 2002: Who’s the most attractive warrior?
Our means of resolution was a two-phase tournament: we opened with a ‘hot or not’ style elimination round from which the top 32 candidates (as ranked by ‘hot’ votes) proceeded to the current phase where the real fun begins. Every two days, a new pair of matchups will be posted on this thread. The winner proceeded to the next round.
All times subject to change.
Round 1.1: Clarice: 65.52%, Rigaldo 34.48%; Galatea: 89.66%, Hilda: 10.34%
Round 1.2: Alicia: 68.63%, Beth: 31.37%3; Hysteria: 52.94%, Helen: 47.06%

I plan on spreading the word on other forums but at this time of the month not many people visit them. Instead I will wait till the weekend. Then there should be more people around since they would be expecting spoilers.
YES! THANK YOU! The whole point of the format is we enable non-MH votes so the more outside promotion that gets done the better~!

Is anyone here any good with photoshop? There will be a fair amount of image resizing to do at some point and their smoothing algorithms are much better than those of Sumopaint and Pixlr. If you're able and willing to help out, PM me.
UPDATE: Photoshop access problem == solved. 30 day trial periods FTW~!

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: It's not obvious from my profile, but I live in Australia. What this means is that everything I say about days of the week will be a day ahead of what many of you will perceive (I said this contest starts Monday, most of you will see it starting Sunday). All my time-related announcements will be given in AEST (my timezone) and will include a date. Check worldclock if you want to know what they correspond to in your corner of the globe.
Even thoug I am looking forward to this, I think that overratedly overrated Roxanne (I will never get what is so great about her?) will win.
Even tho i think this poll will just end in fighting lol(as no matter what anyone says Claymore1 will always think Roxanne looks like "a cheap whore", and no matter if they won Jean still looks like a butch football player, and probably tied for uglyest warrior with Rachel)
But still a good idea, but A are we voting on looks alone or do we factor in personality ?(because Teresa is kinda hot but she has the worst personality of all warriors...she is the biggest bitch i was so glad she got her head cut off...she so had it coming)
I never said that Jean was the prettiest, because she certainly is not. The only reason I have her for my avatar is that at the time I created my original account (on AnimeSuki) I was just at the part in the Anime where Jean sacrificed herself for Clare. I did it in memory of her .Quote:
And since I have had this avatar for so long I don't want to change it. And it is not just Roxanne who looks like a prostitute, I have always thought that Hysteria looked like one too. From the very beginning, even before learning about how terrible Roxanne actually was, that is how they both appeared.
No, Roxanne is still the worst. Teresa was bad at first but she redeemed herself when she started traveling with Clare. Teresa's personality completely changed and she turned into a better person. And don't forget about Renee, she was ugly and her personality was bad. Yuma or Cynthia probably are the best when you combine their personality's with their looks.Quote:

a few days with clare(who was annoying as a human and worse as a Warrior) dose not make up for years of Teresa being a colossal bitch. the only cool thing Teresa ever did(besides dieing) was when she offered herself up to those bandits...like "oh you wanna rape me.....here ya go come and get it"Quote:
an example of a warrior with a bad personality that gets redeemed would be Undine(her rude personality was a way for her to protect the weak)
you are right Renee is quite unattractive. But her personality was no worse then any others(for example she is no where near as bad as Ophelia)
Cynthia is a cutie.
Well yes it does,Quote:
Teresa's attitude completely changed after this and she showed genuine affection for Clare.
ANNOUNCEMENT This is a beauty contest, votes should be cast based on outward appearance. If inner beauty is your thing, fair enough, but please try to keep your decisions as aesthetically-based as possible.

And to put it in perspective if i am an ass to you for YEARS but then i say "oh we are really the same" and am nice to you for a week dose that week of being nice make up for the years of me being mean to you?
same goes for Teresa...
To quote Stannis Baratheon "A good deed dose not wipe out the bad, nor a bad wipe out the good"
So Teresa was still an awful person, she was really only nice to clare(for a short time, and had the bandits not attacked Teresa would have left Clare in that village). But she did do nice things for Clare and did save her life from the bandits(and even was willing to die to hurt the people who hurt Clare....and i think the reason she did not let the other warriors kill her at her execution is because she knew the MiB would turn clare into a warrior which is something Teresa did not want for clare)
And was it not implied that Teresa hated humans, due to the fact that she felt betrayed by her family who sold her to the Org.

I feel like most people would disagree with that statement considering that it is one of the best scenes.Quote:
Clare only knew Teresa for a few days before Teresa changed heart. Everything else before that is irrelevant.Quote:
So, to you, people can never change?Quote:
That is how most claymores feel. They don't treat humans kindly because humans don't treat them kindly.Quote:
