Exibition Matches: Phase 1 Results
March 30, 2011
The polls have closed on the first exhibition round of Sai Mecha (though not according to keikaku, for some reason they didn’t automatically close when they were set to!) The winners are in and those four mecha move on to the next exhibition round to compete for the final prize, the right to have their mecha replace the Sai Mecha site banner during the full tournament. Results below the cut.
The results are as follows:
VF-1 Valkyrie (SDF Macross) over the RGM-79 GM (MS Gundam.) 86.03% vs 13.97%
Z-01 Lancelot (Code Geass) over the ATM-09 ST Scopedog (Armored Trooper VOTOMS.) 56.57% vs 43.43%
Ingram AV-98 (Patlabor) over the SVMS-01X Union Flag Custom II – GN Flag (Gundam 00.) 54.44% vs 45.56%
VF-25 Messiah (Macross Frontier) over the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam (Gundam SEED.) 70.05% vs 29.95%
[Please note: it is requested that you read the results summary in this voice.]
So a resounding win for the VF-1 over the EFSF workhorse GM, and a solid win for the other Macross entrant over the Strike. That pilot could not have helped the Strike’s cause. Meanwhile the Lancelot proved to be the comeback kid as it overcame an initial shortfall in votes to barely overcome the Scopedog. In many way that was a match of opposites with new and sleek versus old and bulky. A result certain to rile up the oldfags! And finally, the Ingram AV-98 got and held its narrow lead over the GN Flag for all but a day of voting.
In other Sai Mecha news, the nominations process continues. Keep those votes coming! Nominations will run until the scheduled time (April 9) to record as many nominations as possible. So far a few primary contenders are emerging from the tally sheets, but you’ll have to wait until the conclusion of nominations to find out. In the meanwhile the exhibition matches will continue after a one day break and then four more days of voting will commence. Thank you to everyone who has submitted their nominations, voted in the exhibition matches, written posts about the tournament and their nominations, and to all those out there spreading the word about Sai Mecha on their blogs, Twitter accounts, forums, chat, and word of mouth.
