Group 17 is very interesting. In a twist of fate, it includes four characters that qualified for the 2014 World Cup (Shining Armor, Daring Do, Vinyl Scratch, and Derpy). That means at least one character from last Cup will not qualify this year.

Jeric, I just want to thank you for getting Derpy's name right and not including her in the poll as Muffins.

@Batbrony would have armored up and come after me with his collection of poisonous Nerf™ guns.

Oh this is a predicament of choices isn't it:orly: Muhaha, time to show my show vs. fandom bias:umad: (And abuse the maximum post count)

As Captain of the Royal Guard and Prince of the Crystal Empire I believe I would make a fine team captain.  I have the strength and the knowledge to train anypony in this competition to help our team as I did for the Equestria Games.  However, I don’t think we’d even have to worry about that if I can get a courageous adventurer like you on our team.

Ha, no problem, this area is no more foreign to me than my own house, and trust me we can get quite a workout dodging all the traps and…

WATCH OUT!!!

Huh, nice one.

5a75be8964b95_tenochtitlanbasin5.thumb.png.82ca2a6ce7e6b2e63d320faec9959599.png

Yeah, with you on our team we are a shoeing to know the ins and outs of the competition. But who’s to be our third?

Well based on the previous poll and who’s in I think we could do use that musician one considering her friend is in on the other team.

What do you say, are you in?

Wa-wa-wait! What about me I’m like the most popular background pony, you couldn’t possibly leave me out of this?

5a75beb38b1bb_tenochtitlanbasin10.thumb.png.41ac548108aeaec8fc4209871a0e6e1f.png

I’m sorry, who are you?

Why I’m Derpy obviously, I’ve been here since day one!

5a75bebc38771_tenochtitlanbasin11.thumb.png.358f0acec9095ce55f1cca37dd8293b6.png

A little longer than either of you two, but who’s counting, so it would be an absolute mistake to not include my in this competition.

5a75bec4ddde0_tenochtitlanbasin12.thumb.png.748f97688ed903248b66d7b2a45209ed.png

Yeah, that name is still not ringing any bells.

Are you serious! I delivery the mail, I help the residents of Ponyville like that sweet Doctor and the different weather ponies, plus I can bake you some delicious muffins for this competition.

*ahem* yes well, it’s not as simple as…and I can’t really respond to that…

5a75bee06b8f2_tenochtitlanbasin16.thumb.png.3e4d78ec5a69f28c270e5c944fd5f8ac.png

Don’t worry I get where you’re coming from, but see this is a competition and I don’t see how popularity is going to help us in the long run and your physical reputation is well…

So you’re going to let the music pony in and not me! Trust me I can be more beneficial.

5a75bee9ec777_tenochtitlanbasin17.thumb.png.132d950f54cd661cbb4b3310ab55f27a.png

Have you seen my stats? As a young flyer I was incredible.

You know she does have a point.

5a75bef248059_tenochtitlanbasin18.thumb.png.607dd3dc5cf114e1e24f42fc85e75ce6.png

We do need somepony more suited for competition

Thank you and-

And I think he would make a much better teammate! Did you see the skills he has with just balloons, that is exactly the kind of talent we need!

5a75bf04b3ad0_tenochtitlanbasin20.thumb.png.bf73ba9031ef3e0cf27843bf3d43659c.png

Ah, you know what that that would be better, a skill the competition would never see coming.

5a75bf0c6c02a_tenochtitlanbasin21.thumb.png.bc583b2372df028bcbde3723c7cbe0e0.png

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?! You would pick him over me!

5a75bf2e0fbf2_tenochtitlanbasin22345.thumb.png.5f99640cff961f7cf1454c77d104f44e.png

Actually, why do you think you deserve to be on this team?! How much have you even accomplished Mr. Damsel in Distress! I think my team would be much better off without you.  That’s right MY TEAM!!! I’m the face of the fandom, I’m the original meme, you cannot leave me out of this, you cannot…

5a75bf1540d1e_tenochtitlanbasin26.thumb.png.4878938377bb1c7a674c8ba79d2314b8.png

Hey Amethyst, since my Wild Card round won’t be for a while I thought I’d come to support you and…

5a75bf1e1b352_tenochtitlanbasin27.thumb.png.70f1556c57bf26368e22f83244e9887a.png

uh…I’ve never seen her get like this, is something wrong with her?

Her, nah, it’s just this guy’s skewed representation of who he thinks “deserves” to be in this competition.

5a75bf25e18b0_tenochtitlanbasin28.thumb.png.a96f5a01a36cd601417b36e7a39bf2e9.png

Don’t worry about it, we’ll have an ACTUAL commentary by @Batbrony and the others later on to set the record straight.

Your Move Everyone :P

And not as Ditzy Doo either. Much appreciated. :)

 

Oh, but on the topic of today's contest, once again the choice is easy. Votes are obviously going to... What?!? How in Equestria is Shining Armor so high? I just... what?

Ok Derpy, time to set this competition back on track and put that colt in his place.

(O_O)

This is a three way race? I should have expected as much, but I really thought Derpy would have almost a double digit lead. I'm almost pleased Shining is doing so well. Goes to show what a few seasons of good characterization can do.

As this competition goes on I find that it is helping me really realize who my favorite ponies (i.e., characters) are in this entire franchise as it's usually those who I end up fighting for the hardest: typically those like King Sombra, Blackthorn, Grogar, Captain Celaeno, Mage Meadowbrook, Moondancer, and Zecora; though I still hold lots of love for some like Chrysalis. That said, along with Vinyl and Amethyst, I'm going with:

Ok, who reneged on their vote for Derpy?  She had 15 and now she has 14. :okiedokieloki:  I am not amused.

C’mon ya’ll, vote Derpy!!!!  Who’s meant more to the fandom than her in this group???  Only one who even holds a candle is Vinyl, and even she’s not as beloved!  This is the fandom’s greatest mascot we’re talking about here!!! Do not disappoint me, bronies, but more importantly, DON’T DISAPPOINT DERPY!!!! :angry:

I have done maths.

Currently there are 79 votes, which means 26.3-recurring people threw in their three votes.

Derpy only has 16 of those votes.

This means there are ten-and-a-third heretics that we must expurgate from the forums, and we will require 3.4-recurring pitchforks to perform said expurgation, assuming three tines per pitchfork, one tine per heretic's spleen, and one heretic's spleen per heretic.

 

Maths is so useful.

I would lend you two fifths of a pitchfork I happen to have lying around except then you'll use it to impale a third of my spleen :sunny:

Actually I could use 2/5 of a pitchfork to impale 1.2 heretics' spleens, assuming three tines per pitchfork.
