We didn’t manage to quite get the turn out for this poll as we did last week, but we still managed to accumulate a fair number of votes. And it wasn’t a steamroller victory, though our winner was comfortably in the lead for the whole week. And that winner is Candruth for her Healing Words. Congrats Candruth (it’s been a while hasn’t it?) and well done to all our other entrants.
This weeks poll got over 250 votes in total, which is a record for a CDC poll (if we exclude CDC97, because that was an anomaly to say the least) and, as you might expect with voting numbers so high, the poll was close. Our winner only won by 9 votes from 2nd, who was a further 11 votes ahead of 3rd, giving us a nice and neat 20 votes covering the top 3. However, I’m sure no-one will be surprised with who the winner is. And that winner is Guy Genesis for his amazing Jaquis Kobar. Congratulations Guy and well done to everyone else who entered, whether they made the poll or not.
Now, before anyone votes I would like to make this clear, yes it does say Paladin in the contest title, but this contest is about designing the best character in any of the Fantasy RPG fighter/ warrior class staples, so knights, paladins, barbarians etc. So you don’t have to worry about “is this really a Paladin or not?” just vote for your favourite… if you can choose that is.
I have to say, the quality of the entries for this contest was superb (and the same also applies to the current contest, but that’s off topic) and the poll just proves it. It wasn’t a run away contest, it was closer between the top 3 than in some contests gold and silver medal positions, but the winner still won by a decent margin (13 points I believe). And that winner is Blunt Object for his Tempest. Congrats Blunt Object and well done to everyone else who entered, as I said, the quality in this contest was amazing.
This contest certainly lived up to its name. There could have been a completely different poll. Honourable mentions go to: Roseweave, ASubtleDagger, Meniukas (for his Zaria entry), Lef & Legatus, all of whom could have made it on to this poll.
I do like it when we have a close contest. It’s so much nicer than just having the winner run away with almost half the vote . This weeks winner only won by 6 votes over second place (to put this into perspective, last weeks winner got 55 votes more than second place, whilst this weeks winner didn’t even get 55 votes more than fifth, although there were 22 more votes overall in last weeks contest). But still, a win is a win and it doesn’t matter how close or distant the race was. ANd this weeks winner is Achilles228 for their Gauge. Congrats Achilles and well done to everyone else who entered.
This weeks contest got exactly 200 votes, which pleases me, because it makes figuring out the percentages so much easier (even though poll daddy does that for me, but if I did it myself it’d be easier, but anyway). And our winner managed to garner 90 of those votes (which is 45% of the votes) to take a comfortable, and yet again runaway, victory. And that person was, predictably, AMS for his Waterdragon. Congrats AMS, that makes you our first repeat winner this year, and well done to everyone who entered.
