I can finally fix the first post since some people think bastardizing it is cute.

Thanks to the efforts of @LadyVyxx and @Ngamer64, we found out we're set for a contest in early 2020, which is almost assuredly going to be Game of the Decade 2. Assuming chalk, Breath of the Wild or Smash Bros. Ultimate is going to thoroughly annihilate that contest. Probably Zelda because of the LAW, though Brawl almost won last time: http://www.gamefaqscontests.com/drupal/node/22?matchnum=4195&num=2

Zelda had a 1500 vote lead and only won by 900. If people actually loved Brawl the way they love Melee or Smash Ultimate, it very well could have won. If we proxy in Breath of the Wild and Smash Ultimate, who knows? Ultimate is no joke; it just set the record for most played and most watched game at EVO, and it's legitimately the most played game in that series. It's far more balanced than Melee and has a shot at having a much longer shelf life, too. Compare tournament results. Melee's are always the same few characters. Ultimate's are always all over the place. This is a good thing for shelf life.

The wild card is Fortnite (League of Legends came out in 2009, so it's not eligible). Fortnite is by far the most popular game right now. The anti-rallying stuff worked in a character contest because no one really cares about this site anymore. We're ranked 17,000th on Alexa, when we used to be top 100 (or higher) on the regular. Last contest I threw 10 bucks at Maximilian Dude, while he was streaming Smash Ultimate fresh off release, during the Mario/Cloud match. The response when he read my thing was "that site still exists?!". Cloud won two updates and it barely mattered. This site is more or less a joke among gamers right now, and that is never getting fixed. I see it with my contribution hits. Used to be on fire, now it's nothing. The same thing is true for everyone else. Outside of people googling an answer and sending people here, this place is dead as a hammer.

But here's the thing. People care waaaaaaay more about games than they do characters. If the Fortnite fanbase looks past our site being dead and wants it to flatten everything else, then it is absolutely going to flatten everything else. It got an appearance in Avengers Endgame and recently gave 3 million to a tournament winner. I mean come on, that's just nuts.

So I think it's Zelda, Smash, or Fortnite. What say you guys?

A = Strongest Character
B = Character Weaker than A
C = Character Weaker than B
To figure out a character's Xsts Percentage ---> [(CvB)(BvA)]/50 = CvA
To compare how C would do against B ---> [(CvA)/(BvA)]*50 = CvB
To figure out how B would do against A ---> [(CvA)/(CvB)]*50 = BvA

Fortnite will be as strong as World of Warcraft. A game like Persona 5 will destroy it.

MOLTEN LAVA TAKES. And it might actually be true, which is hilarious.

Fortnite will undoubtedly be a wild card I'm sure I'll predict horribly

Fortnite is going to be trash. Even at its peak a year or 2 ago, it wouldn't be worth much, but now with all of the bad PR with their latest updates it won't be doing much of anything.

Fortnite is all about the rally power. It was never going to go anywhere on its own strength.
Link isn't the only one who kicks ass.
Congrats to Advokaiser for winning the CBX Guru Contest!

Fortnite is going to be complete fodder unless the fanbase shows up en masse. And I don't think it will, as its young fanbase isn't going to give a s*** about our contests.

Also, woo new contest. Can't believe it has been 10 years since GotD. I was just wrapping up with university when we had that contest, and now I have a wife/kid/house. Hard to believe laughing at the board during GSC/MM was that long ago. What a great contest that was.

That's good news. I hope the contest starts in January 2020, shortly after the GotY polls end. I'm also perfectly fine with opening up the nominations before the end of 2019 (sometime around December 15th-20th) because I don't expect any notable games to be released during the final 2 weeks of the year.

Fortnite's reddit page is massive and if one of the inevitable posts about it being in the contest gets hot, it's game over.
Don't mind me. I'm just here for the contest.
