We won. Metanorn was disqualified due to cheating. Pretty pathetic, right?
Cheaters Gonna Cheat
This is gonna get real sad, real fast.
Fansub reviews are evil… gotcha.
But voting multiple times is good.
And telling your friends to vote multiple times is good too.
And bragging about how everyone you know voted multiple times for you is also good.
Well okay, now that we’ve got our moral compasses set, let’s take a look at what wiill, a tournament organizer, has to say.
[12:55] <~wiill> the rules should say one vote per individual
Pretty clear to me. But it’s not like they enforce these rules for other blogs, right?
::Note:: There were 91 fraud votes for 8thsin Fansubs Anime Blog that were removed after the voter IPs were checked.
Due to multiple attempts at manipulating and rigging of the polls, both before the polls were officially open and after, in favor of CSW by one or multiple members of the CSW writing team, combined with their subsequent reaction, CSW is disqualified from the tourney. Sekijitsu will progress to the next round.
Jinx has been disqualified due to vote manipulation
Wow, and Jinx did the exact same thing Metanorn admitted to doing.
So looks like an open and shut case of some pathetic cunt cheating and getting caught. So that’s why Metanorn got disquali–
Oh, I’m sorry. I forgot that one of the tournament organizers, wiill, actually works for Metanorn and the other one despises me for unknown reasons. So… Metanorn didn’t get disqualified. Actually, they were rigged to win from the start. While none of the other blogs participating knew what the scores were, Metanorn knew all along, because wiill built the polling system for them.
They knew the vote count throughout the tournament so they always knew what the scores were while others didn’t. And they could change the scores to whatever they wanted. Fun fact I heard from one of the people with access to the info: Against Star Crossed, Metanorn was down 250 votes. They somehow magically came up with over 250 votes in an hour to win the whole thing. Interesting, huh?
I decided to talk to Metanorn to find out what goes through the mind of someone who has to be so pathetic as to fake their victory in an internet tournament.
Dark_Sage Talks to Metanorn
Before we won the tourney, I tried to get in the mind of someone who has no life. You know, see what makes them tick. So I asked Miss Kyokai a few questions about her lifestyle when she mentioned she had been to New York.
Knowing that she lives in Bangladesh, I wondered how she could afford such a trip when the average Bangladeshi yearly income is $1800. So I started asking her a few questions, trying to get a picture of her life story, but she didn’t seem inclined to share.
<&kyokai> And I don’t want to share it with you at least
<SushiGoKart> >/ Yo just forget this banchaud.
<Dark_Sage> No story? Why not?
<@lvlln> Well, let’s be honest here. 99.9% of anibloggers are in the upper class in terms of world wealth.
<Dark_Sage> I just wanna know if I’m talking to a slum queen here or not
<&kyokai> slum queen?!
<Dark_Sage> Yeah, slum queen, or is that the wrong terminology?
<Dark_Sage> Gutter queen?
<Dark_Sage> That might work better.
<SushiGoKart> How the fuck are you going to call someone a slum queen?
* kyokai sets mode: +b *!*sdfdsf@*.desu.desu
* You were kicked by kyokai (Dark_Sage)
I think she got mad. I tried to contact her afterward.
<Dark_Sage> Please don’t be mad, Miss Kyokai :(
<Dark_Sage> I didn’t mean to call you a queen.
But I didn’t get a reply. I presume it’s because she doesn’t know how to handle private messages on IRC. Oh well.
Moving on from that… Since they rigged their own tournament, let’s rig our own.
New Aniblog Tournament
Well, that was easy. It’s almost like I didn’t have to become relevant to get votes. I just had to control the system from the get-go. Well, fuck, we won! Congrats!!
Well done, everyone! We won the tournament just like I knew we would. Just wait for the tears to flow from the other blogs.
