Some thoughts.
I am wholly unsurprised by this year's Iron Waifu.
Some real surprises were that Meline lost to Renfeld, and 'dine actually made it to the finals.
I think that having a popularity contest mixed with "the winner gets more content" is kind of counterproductive and... maybe disruptive. Especially that last post regarding what each winner would get. Maybe it didn't swing the votes too hard, but i think results would have been a little bit diferent otherwise.

So Secretary-chan won, huh?
Well, I was close enough with declaring Birgandine as tournament winner before it started. And thanks to the anouncement for the final 8's rewards, I can look into the future with anticipation.

Hope everyone can enjoy the threesome. Personally I'm not a fan of those, unless they are mainly of comedic nature. As a LQ scene I find it a bit unfitting, but to each their own.

While it leads to conflicting motivations for voting, the content rewards also spike interest in the tournament, the game itself, and provide feedback on what players are looking forward to most. I also felt that the write ups created a shift heading into the home stretch, and helped Brigandine the most by solidifying the mechanics>personality crowd behind her already popular character, but I don’t think it changed the eventual winner.

A straight-up popularity poll wouldn’t be nearly as interesting or useful, and I appreciated the tweak to the rules at the outset to try and help the LQ girls even if this didn’t seem to lift the stigma of being a “completed” character. If done again next year, a more prominent description of the “prize” and how it affects LQ girls, non-harem characters, and so on would be useful.

Fun Facts
-Penelope is the only entrant to have been eliminated by the same character in both contests (Yamamaya).
-On the other hand, Kyrie and Renfeld got revenge, eliminating the girls that beat them last year (Raina and Meline, respectively).
-Doll was most improved, going from a first round exit to the final four with a 120 vote increase.
-Of the seven new entrants this year, only Nerys won her first round matchup.
-Shally, Jonagold, Elaiya, Serade, and Gargan are the characters with a record of 0-2.
-In both tournaments, Violet and Brigandine were eliminated by the eventual champion.
-If patterns hold, next year Brigandine (the runner-up) will win by beating Kyrie (the Champion's toughest match) in the finals ;) .

Please understand, the Iron Waifu tournament isn't meant to be just a straight-up popularity poll. The themed update for the winner was part of the contest's design from the start, and this year Therese was removed from the running precisely because she was most popular last year.

The intent of this contest is to let fans participate in determining the future content for the game in a fun and engaging way. That's why it's presented as a single-elimination tournament. If it was just a straight-up popularity poll, there are far more effective ways of conducting such a poll that doesn't involve things like strategic voting and random seeding.

One other question, I thought there was supposed to be a bonus round of Alina vs Therese today, but I couldn't find the poll.
Was I mistaken, or hasn't it run yet?
