Determine the strongest Doubles pair of the tournament.
The bonus round ends on Thursday, October 25th 8 PM GMT.
Cast your vote and discuss (logically) why you voted for who you voted for. Have fun, but keep it clean!
Golden Pair FTW
Akutsu/Kawamura could pull off a slaughtering. I'm gonna go with them.
something like... 80th Hadoukyuu for a few serves. That removes a lot of players on here.
Then 108th Hadoukyuu serves. We have even less pairs alive.
Akutsu is amazing.
It's either Taira Yoshiyuki/Momoshiro Takeshi or Akutsu Jin/Kawamura Takashi for me. I don't view a lot of player as they can take a shot that break spot light and still be alive. I know Taira/Momo lose in final, but they are still stronger team in my eyes.
Taira/Momoshiro is another good pair (just because BJK is almost unreturnable, Momo is really OP here lol). Data Pair is really strong, WoK has a huge fan base (I didn't see them winning in any discussion yet they won every single match... almost like Jirou did) and I really like Shiraishi/Kirihara...
Kaoz you did great with the pairs , I would have replaced strong pair with Hirakoba/Amane (or something like that, Amane was useless in S2 lol).
Jirou also had good fan base. But I think he won his match pretty fair and square. The only match that he win that I think he had no chance winning is the 1st match, his match with Kenya. He had a pretty decent chance at winning the rest of his match.
Against Kojinki, that was a close match. And against Amane, I actually tried to make a fair match and defended David lol (Jirou destroyed him).
I still can't believe WoK won against Kirihara/Shiraishi (this pair won against GP, and GP won against Data Pair... GP DP and K/S are all better than WoK for me :/ )
I also like Jirou, but after being neglected since his appearance, there just isn't enough to go by that he can still win matches.
Konjiki can also be argued to defeat Jirou may I add.
Jirou lost his argument against Kenya. But against Konjiki, everybody was ignorant and ignored anything against him.
It was far worse with WoK. Everybody suddenly involved the plot saying they can't lose.
Nobody actually ever gave reasoning for WoK. Disappointed in how people overrated them despite their loss to Washio/Suzuki.
WoK discussions sucked, it was useless to fight against them . I remember that in every single match, every one was like "...and Chitose has Saiki", it was impossible lol
Kaoz, do a makeshift pairs tournament sometime :3
I just believe in Shiraishi/Akaya.
Remember though, in a tournament where argument has no value and it's only about the vote count, you're apt to get silly arguments.
I realized that extremely few people were waiting until later to cast their votes or open to changing their vote.
People just voted for who they liked.
Like how Fuji got actual votes against Sanada and Yuki.
Like how Kintaro got actual votes against Yuki.
They stood out to me but there were some other ones where a discussion wasn't too necessary but votes for characters that would realistically be comfortably defeated were rather high.
Lol about the Fuji thing, I couldn't control myself, I knew he was going to lose both matches anyway (although his match with Sanada was a close one).
WoK argument annoy greatly annoys me. No one presented any actual argument that they'll might win. They just say "plot". At first, I find that kinda okayish. So I go ahead and use those same argument for Echizen. But Echizen fanbase isn't as strong as WoK. Even with his next match as clear as day that it's going to be with someone higher than no.5, something that wasn't even nearly confirm with WoK, Echizen still lost his match. Even without those things, we never once saw Echizen fail to improve to beat his opponents. He and Sanada had massive gap when they fought in Kantou, yet Echizen close it.
Sure, he lost to Tokugawa, who is amongst the 2/3 strongest HS not counting Genius 10. Oh, and Nanjiroh. Are you seriously counting Nanjiroh?
