Ulti's Analysis Edit

This was one of the weirdest not-close matches of the entire contest, because while Leon > Gordon > Shadow was very predictable, the trends would not behave for the longest time. First Shadow and Gordon stayed even for 10 minutes, then Gordon threatened a comeback on Leon with a few cuts overnight, then things slowly separated and the match seemed to end out of nowhere. This was a match that could have greatly benefited from a 1v1 format or 24 hours, but it was not to be.

I'm pretty sure the big explanation for things being off here was Leon/Gordon overlap. 25,000 votes is extremely low, even for a night match, so overlap had to have happened somewhere. Leon also had to deal with the very lite version of Dante's Tameem experience, which is being stuck in Resident Evil 6. He's probably the only part of that game that isn't trash, but he was hated on by approximation to the rest of the bile.

Capcom on the verge on bankruptcy is some of the best news in gaming history, because I can only think of one other company (Activision-Blizzard) that deserves collapse more than those idiots. All the bad games, all the ruined series, all the shady DLC practices, all the hating of fans... it's really caught up to Capcom, finally. Good riddance to them.

Zen's (Late) AnalysisEdit

Here's another match with a direct precedent and almost four times the votes: Poll2095 If you extrapolate these results, Gordon would have gotten only about 7000 votes if he still was at his 2005 strength, so he has gotten stronger. Or, maybe, because of Giraffe Felatio Simulator 6 absolutely bombing, Leon has dropped a little. Maybe the votals just don't lend themselves to true strength.

Either way, this wasn't really a debatable match. It was Sunday morning so more people were at church praying for Shadow's mortal soul rather than voting on GameFAQs leading to some of the lowest votals of the round. Really sad results here. Just a bland match.

I spoke a little bit about Shadow and Gordon already, but where will Leon be in 2018? Unlike Chris, who has had an RE7 DLC and an appearance in MvCI, Leon hasn't had much play outside of being in the much-hyped Resident Evil 2 REmake. Leon will most likely always be a solid-to-upper midcarder, but depending on the current amount of support he has, he may find himself in a bad situation as a low seed if people forget to nominate him. It's been 13 years since RE4, and if that doesn't make you feel old, then consider it's been 20 years since RE2 and that will get you.
