Finale updated!

...Edgic...victory? Pfft, Jackie's edit sucked.

Character Ranking:
(Warning: lots of ranting ahead)

#20. Bonnie: Like this really needs to be explained...but I feel the need to at least address a few things. First off, I don't care that she's a super-negative bitch. That's fine and good for a season's villain, with a delicious downfall. But there are still 2 HUGE reasons this...THING is dead last. One, TWO SEASONS IN A ROW. THIRD PLACE. DOMINATING THE SCREENTIME AND THE STORYLINE. Even if she got cooldowns this season, she was still at the crux of the storyline. Everyone wanted her out, or to use her, or was voted out because of her, or blah blah blah...RIGHT AFTER SHE DID THIS IN SFC9. And two...her domination of the storyline DESTROYS OTHER CHARACTERS. Look at poor Starr; TWO SEASONS OF HER, DOING ALMOST NOTHING NON-BONNIE RELATED. Adrian, spending an ENTIRE SEASON just being bitter at her. If Bonnie left earlier or wasn't cast, maybe, I dunno, they could've actually done something DIFFERENT. DEVELOPED AS CHARACTERS, MAYBE. Ugh, so much CAPS LOCK...but yeah, Bonnie ruined so many potentially great characters on two seasons in a row now. And that's terrible. Just like Lex Luthor stealing 40 cakes.

#19. Minerva: Wow, what a fall from grace...but it's deserved. This is NOT the amazing underdog who got votes left and right that I loved in SFC4/All-Stars. This was a CPNbot who completely dominated the game boringly, who turned Ryuia into her little mindslave in one of the most uncomfortable plotlines in SFC history (only Iraenus is more uncomfortable, I think). Thankfully she didn't win, because if she did...she would've been a negative Barney, and that's pretty much the last thing The Minerva Mink should ever be.

#18. Ryuia: This is an incredibly sad placing, because she was amongst my favorites premerge...but then she willingly lost all her personality in order to turn into Minerva Jr., which I mentioned already was a very disturbing plotline. And I was willing to place her higher in the finale, where I was expecting...or at least HOPING she'd get some form of character development when she realized Minerva didn't care for her (like Johnny)...but nope. She was completely worthless, arguably worse than Luke. Hands down the biggest opinion drop I've ever had of a contestant from the start to finish of a season.

#17. Jackie: WOW, the final 4 are the bottom 4, isn't this just an AMAZING season? Now Jackie, I'll give him JUST enough credit to place above the bottom 3, because he did sometimes have...I dunno, okay funny/sympathetic moments? But...ugh, he's still terrible overall. First off, he's sexist. Look at the way he talks about women, he only "respects" them if he's banging them, apparently. Second, SCREAMING NARRATIONAL STRATEGY REALLY LOUDLY IN CONFESSIONALS AND SWEARING DOESN'T MAKE YOU CPOTT. It makes you annoying. Third, he got this forced positive edit simply because the final 8 was so negative...which means we're supposed to root for him when he reveals his injury is fake, and he proceeds to be the biggest douchebag on the planet in the FIC. Fat chance. All of this...and he wins. Ugh... It felt like SWSU was trying to validate his edit WAY too hard.

#16. Chloe: Speaking of lack of character development...Chloe's probably never heard of the term. All there was to her was hating Chrii...and of course, making Bonnie look brilliant by getting her voted off. Where's SCH Chloe when you need her? Thankfully she left early, so we didn't have to suffer too much from THIS particular disappointment.

#15. Baxter: I wouldn't go so far as to say he was a terrible character, per say, but having him last until the final 8, as Bonnie's ally and with the edit he had...really wasn't necessary. He was part of what made the season too negative.

#14-11. Quadratic/Frank/Chrii/Emilee: I really cannot be bothered...

#10. Adrian: I wanted to like him more than this, he had potential, but it was squandered horribly. He should've played without Bonnie, because with her, his positive moments were drowned by bitterness.

#9. Starr: Pretty much the same deal as Adrian, except instead of being bitter as a problem, she just...didn't do anything. And it's a gigantic shame.

#8. Miranda: She was...very, very, VERY slightly interesting in her strategic dilemma...I guess? Too bad she doesn't have a personality.

#7. Xero: HE WAS MISSING A FRIKKIN' EAR. Deserved a freaking redemption arc SO badly...instead we got a vaguely unlikeable, terrible at the game first boot. Bumped him up partially due to rebellion against the season.

#6. Ventious: And the only reason he's this high is because positivity was so desperately needed this season. He was pretty boring and...not as likeable as his SFC7 self this time around.

#5. Kris: And the only reason SHE'S this high is because of her once-in-a-while snarky moments. She's still overrated though; she doesn't have a personality this season.

#4. Oehda: Lol at her being this high despite me hating her in SFC8, but she was...actually better this season. ._. Her Jackie fights, while still annoying, were less of a thing this time, and more focus was brought to her mama bear role, which was honestly handled much better this time around (as opposed to I'M SUCH AN AMAZING MAMA BEAR I LOVE ALL MY CUBS-except Alice, she sucks-AREN'T I AN AMAZING PLAYER). So props to her for being...I think the only player to improve this season? Just about?

#3. Sanza: He's...likeable. That's the best way to describe him this season. Like, I can't say he's very interesting or had much of a story (wearing a Red X jury outfit =/= Red X storyline), but he seems like a fun guy to hang around. That's really it.

#2. Phil: In a season full of CPN strategybots, Phil was a much needed breath of fresh air. Even if he was repetitive, it was nice to see someone play the game in such an unorthodox way, resulting in drama and clashing ideals and voting off people no one else would vote out.

#1. Heinz: LMAO. I cannot believe...HEINZ OF ALL PEOPLE. NUMBER 1. HOW. JUST...HOW. Well...when I said Oehda was the only person who improved from her previous season...Heinz was the only other one. And instead of Mr. Entitled loner we got...the Straight Man to the rest of his tribe's Funny Men. I still don't think he was that great, but at the same time...I was never disappointed at him at any point during the season, which is more than I can say for...anyone else. So congrats Heinz, for being...semi-decent.

Hey! I have an idea! Maybe you could have a contest where if you guess the winner right, you get to create a potential character for your 3rd SFC season!
Also, I recommend you send another fan character for SWSU cuz you have really good ones :)

Reply Vilecheese, June 18th, 2012, 2:29 pm

@JETTEJ: I probably will making a contest of some sort for my 3rd season, but I haven't decided what it'll be yet.

Question for Vile You know you said how to get the character faces well how did you get the background out in the cast releases so it's just the character's face and a white plain background?

Bonnie: Strategized Phil's quitting and staying in the game over Chloe, even if she was kinda OTT about it, she still explaned her actions with Phil.

Reply Vilecheese, November 30th, 2012, 10:24 pm
