Purpose of the HOF

Contrary to what most may believe the HOF is about more than just back patting and recognition. It's about endorsing the values we want to see more on our forum. There's an old Saying you catch more flies with honey ................ and it's true. recognize the things you like with praise and more will want to do them for the recognition. This is your chance to positively influence our community.

Please no negative comments about any user or anyone's choice. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

The list so far comes from those nominated for round 6 and excludes those new nominees of round 7 (due to the change over from CV 1 to 2.0 at that time). Sorry I have no way to find the most recent

Rules

Everyone can vote for five only of the nominees on the list below (only on the list). There has bed a week long process of nomination that everyone had plenty of time to add to the list. No complaints about the list will be accepted as it was made by the community in an open process.

You cannot vote for someone twice

You cannot vote for yourself ( campaigning is allowed as I'll be heavily campaigning for Forever who is long over due)

Please base votes on the behaviors of the debaters listed and the talent they show in debated ( a rule obviously ignored in round 6 when I got in- as my presence confirms)

No derogatory comments about other members choices

Please provide a brief reason why you voted for the viner you have ( it might just eliminate the usual negative comments about the list/process/ etc.

Links are provided so you can have a look at the posts of candidates your not familiar with if you like ( those few who aren't will be updated soon)

@comicstooge - Great CAV debater who can out-debate some solid names even when he's using the worse character.

@veshark - Really knows his stuff and is one of the best debaters on this site at applying his knowledge. He can pinpoint all of the important aspects of a fight and come to a solid, educated decision. I seriously can't remember the last time I disagreed with one of his analysis' on a fight.

@shootingnova - One of, if not the, best Star Wars debaters on this site. Absolutely ruthless in his counter arguments, knows how to properly explain context even in it's most convoluted or vague forms, and can definitely apply his wealth of knowledge to an overwhelming degree in any debate, even if he just wants to play devils advocate.

I'll pimp myself (for what little good it would do me) and be back to vote after I have had some sleep (a lot of good people that deserve votes): http://www.comicvine.com/profile/wyldsong/blog/my-debate-link-list/97679/

From the list though, I'll drop down links to 3 of my first CaVs. Bear in mind that one of my more recent goals has been to showcase the underdogs, those characters from the less mainstream lines. As such, I have taken such characters as Aphrodite IX, and faced down Azrael (great debate with @higorm there, and my first CaV):

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/cav-aphrodite-ix-vs-azrael-voting-done-1533306/#79/

Another fun one was against @lukehero, where I took Aspen Matthews of Fathom, and went up against Ms. Marvel (defninitely not an easy character to debate against):

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/cav-msmarvel-vs-aspenmatthews-voting-closed-1541795/#5/

And of course, most people seem to know me for my knowledge and debates with this guy, Jackie Estacado, the ever loving Darkness (been called the Darkness incarnate a few times for my debates with him):

I took on @pope052 in a classic match (which the ever awesome @neongamewave helped get set up) against the Prototype boys:

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/cav-the-darkness-vs-the-prototypes-voting-open-1534390/#44/

So far, I am pretty much undefeated in the CaV ring, and have learned a lot from each and every sparring partner I have ever had, who have been all great and awesome to debate against. A big heartfelt thanks to everyone who has ever sparred with me in the CaV ring!

I'll also throw out my two times as being picked for a viner argument of the week by the one and only @k4tzm4n (I was very honored and humbled by these with so many great arguments being thrown out by many awesome debaters):

http://www.comicvine.com/articles/comic-vine-battle-of-the-week-results-zombie-apoca/1100-147395/

http://www.comicvine.com/articles/comic-vine-battle-of-the-week-results-cardiac-vs-h/1100-147112/

And then there is my Witchblade Respect Thread: http://www.comicvine.com/witchblade/4005-18319/forums/time-to-respect-the-withcblade-revamp-1533219/#34

And an early battle forum blog of mine that received great reviews: http://www.comicvine.com/profile/wyldsong/blog/dr-manhattan-the-truth-behind-the-feats-aka-why-so/61001/

And I think that is enough pimping of myself, but I have a few more CaVs in the first link, and one or two other regular forum threads I have participated in.

Like I said, I'll come back and vote in a bit...but I need some sleep and time to think...

@mikep12: Thanks for the vote my friend. It is greatly appreciated brother man.

Bringnit. He was probably the most knowledgeable user when it came to spider-man (and for what its worth I include myself), he wasn't afraid to disagree with the majority, and he was always able to look at battles with an open mind. He was also probably the most unbiased user I can remember.

@beatboks1 How long is voting open? I have other people in mind but I want to think about some things.

#23 Edited by Dredeuced (5545 posts) - - Show Bio

Here is the part where I do a bit(re: a lot) of campaigning for myself. I feel like the best place to kick off is some debates against people already in the hall of fame. My first tournament on the Vine had the unlucky (or lucky, if you will) pairing of me taking back to back rounds against HoFers @yourneighborhoodcomicgeek and @floopay. My first round was a bare win against YNCG(Fair warning, all my debates are...lengthy):

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/htsl-r1-dredeuced-vs-yourneighborhoodcomicgeek-753177/

While YNCG got caught unable to give his final retort, I won the debate with a deciding vote casted by fellow nominee and all around respected debater @esquire. It was a close and very interesting debate. My next round came against a roadblock in Floopay. While it was an eventual loss, I think I handled myself well and put forth a great argument:

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/htsl-r2-floopay-vs-dredeuced-755159/

As fate would have it, I would end up meeting Floopay in a similar high end street leveler tourney (with very similar teams, even) hosted by @sovereign91001, in a three way match against Mr. Ingenuity. During that tourney I also defeated @veitha in R1 seen here:

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/sovereign-s-tourney-round-one-dredeuced-vs-veitha-1455992/?messageId=9463229/

Followed by the very close victory over Floopay and @mr_ingenuity

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/sst-r2-dredeuced-vs-mr-ingenuity-vs-floopay-voting-1458650/?page=1

Sadly, I don't believe the tourney ever finished as Sovereign found himself busy, but I don't think anything else I was doing that tourney would match my game against Floopay.

In another street level tourney hosted by Esquire, I put together a pretty good team, I won pretty handily in round 1, @dextersinister gave me a good fight in round 2, I actually got a concession from @juiceboks in R3, and I believe I put HoFer CadenceV2/@pokergeist in a spot he couldn't win (it gets a little chippy in the end but Cadence and I have since worked out that tiff). While the winner wasn't conclusive I chalk it up as a won tourney for me. The Dextersinister match is probably the best read as Dexter really put me through the hoops to pull out that win, even if he isn't a HoFer like Cadence. While the previous rounds against Floopay were really good debates between even teams, this was more me getting the better of everyone with a really powerful team and running roughshod:

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/superpowers-finals-cadencev2-vs-dredeuced-1461293/

Getting out of the Streetlevel/mid-tier hero category for a bit, I also participated in a brief high tier draft tourney hosted by @clark_el. I picked New 52 Barry Allen, one of the niches of knowledge I'm best at, and went into some rounds where most people thought I was at a decided disadvantage due to the character's lack of showings at the time.

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/clark-el-s-powerhouse-tournament-clark-el-vs-drede-1450490/

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/clark-el-s-powerhouse-tournament-dredeuced-vs-ocea-1451252/#0/

The battles are a bit redundant as they're versus similar character types, but here's a flattering statement in round 1 from someone I greatly respect, @lvenger:

"If voting is open I'll give my vote to @dredeuced: in a surprising display of coherent arguments with very relevant feats to support his point. I thought you would have your hands full only using New 52 Barry's feats but you pulled one heck of a strategy out of the bag."

Continuing on with the "higher" tier tourneys, @diredrill's Big Shoes tourney was a fun one. I made it to the finals, but defaulted a loss to @thetruebarryallen as I ended up going on an unexpected hiatus midround and couldn't really get back to the vine for about half a year. That's not a big deal as I'm not sure I could've beaten TTBA anyhow and give him all the credit in the world for winning the tourney. That said, there's still lots of great matches using a very interesting system for a tournament, courtesy of the ever creative Diredrill:

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/big-shoes-dredeuced-vs-thedlp-1467736/#0/

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/big-shoes-2-dredeuced-vs-cadencev2-1471414/

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/big-shoes-semi-final-higorm-vs-dredeuced-1475408/

On the way I end up with another match against CadenceV2/Pokergeist where I come out with a win.

That's about it for solo tourneys I remember putting a lot of effort and thought into.

That said, I'm not solely a tourney thriving debater, while I don't have a specific thread to link to, I'll just uh, inflate my ego a little bit with a couple of Kudos posts from HoFers @killemall and @god_spawn:

Killemall: "One of the most under-rated humble and all around solid debator. I know most people are going to rate you different, form my side you deserve a whooping 4.8/5.The only 2 person who have impressed me more than you off late, sorry just being honest, are rolldestroyer and Strider."

God_Spawn: "Shameless self plug aside, I think the list is solid. Especially on Dredeuced. No offense to anyone else, but he's definitely the best up and comer the Vine has had in awhile IMO, as far as all around knowledge goes from comics to anime."

Of the people on the vine that could make me blush with a compliment, God_Spawn and Killemall are very high up there. Hopefully me not being quite so new hasn't diminished their expectations of me.

Beyond that, I think most everyone knows that I'm very well versed in many things pertaining to Wildstorm, all things Justice League, and, obviously, The Flash and I've taken part in many a normal thread with these characters involved. I feel my strongest point is that outside of the above listed specialties, I've got a pretty wide angle for a knowledge base extending from major and minor American comics to the now very popular anime/manga battles. I put a lot of thought and effort into every post and, while they often times get very TL;DR (Example: This post), I've always thought it better to have a very big, very thoughtful post instead of a short thoughtless one. I've got my flaws, as does everyone, and hope this resume I've put together is both an interesting read and, at the very least, a bit impressive.

Special thanks to @reaverlation, @comicstooge, and @wolverine08 for thinking I'm worthy enough for a nomination. Hopefully this post rewarded your faith in me and demonstrated why you thought I was worth the nomination.

To everyone I tagged, sorry if I bothered you. I feel like if I'm gonna name drop people to make myself look good I should atleast give credit and let someone know that I'm namedropping them.

Finally, thanks to @beatboks1 for taking his time to host this event.

Ah i didnt even see the nomination thread..

My Votes in no particular order.

1. @dredeuced (although just be clear this has nothing to with that fact that he is the only one campaigning himself :p).

2. @frozen (despite out never endless list of agreeing to disagree with each other, he is a fantastic debator and deserves this spot). Also not related, remember i once talked about a past debate with you in regards to Kyle, sorry just realized that was Forever not Frozen.. so easy to get mixed up with similar nick name.

3. @omgomgwtfwtf (One of the most under-rated debater who deserves a lot more respect than what he gets... also makes up an awesome debate partner).

4. @bringnit (As a person who sheldom visits a street level thread, if i am be this damn impressed with him, i am not sure why he hasnt made it to the list. Granted i havented seen you around in recent time but you deserve this)

5. @czarny_samael666 (Perhaps the first person i made friends with in comicvine, although that was nothing to do with why he is here, from the last 3 hall of fame voting i have always voted for him, and will continue to do so up until he gets there, simply because he's a badass :p )

Debating Black Adam and Shazam (me) against Superman and Wonder Woman (pages two and three)

Shorter debate --- KC Superman (me) vs Superboy Prime thread

Short CAV. Interesting to use movie-characters: James Bond (me) vs Black Widow (Shroudofsorrow)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just some general admissions that have been passed on me, first by the best there is (@wolverine08, I hope he doesn't mind if I use this......) - I'll do so. I've heard that you were good before, but the first time I've actually see you debate was your CaV with Nickzumbato. Needless to say, I was extremely impressed by your debating. You clearly have a vast amount of knowledge with what you're talking about, and have an excellent way of breaking down arguments and mirroring how you're character's strong points will take advantage of your opponent's weak points. Very respectful as well. A 9/10 for me.

From GhostRavage - Ah, hopefully you see more about me as i want to see more about you. I find quite intriguing the fact debaters like Lvenger (which i esteem a lot) respect you so much and i've never seen you around till now. That batman CaV showed me you indeed have potential and maybe all that is said about you may be true. It's hard to earn a follow from me when it is completely separated from friendship but debating skills so know you're one of the few i've actually followed because of skillz :P.

From HigorM - I must say I'm impressed with your last debates, two in special, the one against CitzenBane and the other against nickzambuto. You are not the type of debater who run CaV's every single week, but when you do it's for real. You seem to have a great amount of knowledge in some characters like batman, superman and others, and you always make a solid case for them when supporting the character. For me you are a solid debater, who actually knows what you are talking about, and debates not only with scans but most important with actual arguments. So, to in resume, I believe you deserv recognition for your debating skills.

From Lvenger - Wow thanks for the undeservedly high rating mate, I'm honoured to be placed that highly in the eyes of such a credible and knowledgeable debater such as yourself. I humbly accept your rating of me ;)

From Killemall -

As promised I went through most of your forum posts and it seems pretty impressive. You seem to be pretty knowledgeable in what you debate; you normally have a cool level head, and have the ability to substantiate your claims.There isn’t much to criticize there, I would rate you extremely highly mate, something between 8-9, and more leaning towards 9 than 8.The only limitation I see, is that you don’t see overtly knowledgeable with character from marvel but then I suppose it’s pretty hard for someone to be knowledgeable in everything, you obviously prefer to DC more.

EDIT: So far I give my votes to @lvenger and @dredeuced (brilliant debater and plus..I call on him for Flash knowledge).

Obviously my first vote goes to

Forever. A debater who always showed great character respect for others and always debated his case calmly rationally and supported with an incredible clarity of thought.

DedmanWalkin the master of loopholes and without question most creative tourney player to have ever blessed the site with his time.

czarny_samael he and I have gone head to head so often over the years (both being into magic characters though i probably lean a little more to the demonic)and I've always enjoyed our debates. He never get's ruffled and simply presents his case calmly and logically.

Sexy Merc master of all things green lantern so naturally as an Alan Scot Fanboy he and I met often on the same threads in his day. yet to meet anyone who could out knowledge him on anything GL

My last spot was a very close toss up between esquire , Acidskull, shootingnova and Sherlock. Esquire is as his username implies. he carries himself with great dignity and a nobility few can match

@wyldsong Same reason as ILS, but he did it with Top Cow, which is awesome.

@ghostravage Best debater for Hulk on this site. There are thousands of Hulk "experts", but GR's by far the best.

@boschepg- his knowledge of lesser known characters (like alpha flight) and his ability to use them effectively in debates tells me he has the skill to be here

@kidman560: my man, you honor me.......thank you so much for the encouragement and kind words.

@tparks: once again, thanks man. It really means a lot...

and now for me official votes huh? get five? this is very, very difficult for me as there as sooo many that deserve this. That being said (and no hard feelings to anybody.....i would vote for you all if I could) here ares the ones I feel just rise above a bit and truly shine

All in all, it's a honor to be associated with all you fine gentlemen on the vine, and an even greater personal honor for myself to be mentioned amongst fellow company. Thank you.

@pope052

they all have in common that they have enormous knowledge on their subjects and even more important is, that they always keep their cool and stay respectful in their replies regardless of the fanboyism and stupidity they face ^^

especially wyldsong in the godzilla threads and princearagorn in the anime departement :)

i couldnt take half of it before i start with the insults xD
