    I am happy to announce that for the first time that I'm aware of, a JC Tournament thread is being held outside of the Census forum. If you are not familar with that forum, for the past several weeks, they have been conducting a tornament to find what the fans consider to be the Best Star Wars Line spanning the entire saga. As that tournament is cominng to a close, predictably, all of the lines that remain are from the OT. This got me thinking - I wonder what the Attack of the Clones community would consider the best line of Attack of the Clones? We'll soon find out! :D


    Tournament Rules

  2. The lines will be arranged randomly, and separated into brackets.

  3. Read the latest posts to make sure you are voting on the current bracket.

  4. We will be voting for two pairings until we reach the finals of each bracket, the "elite 8", if you will. Hopefully, with enough interest, each vote will last approximately 24 hours.

  5. Please do not vote more than once using socks. If you are caught doing so, you will lose voting privileges for this tournament.

  6. All decisions of the Tournament Director, aka me, are final. In the event that a vote ends in a tie, my vote will act as the tie-breaking vote.



  7. There will be 4 brackets with 16 lines each, for a total of 64 lines in all.



    Here are our list of quotes:



    CORUSCANT REGION


    <STRIKE>I see you becoming the greatest of all the Jedi, Anakin, even more powerful than Master Yoda.
    ? Chancellor Palpatine

    ? Yoda
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/AOTC--yodalookingup.gif">

    <Strike>It?s all Obi-Wan?s fault! He?s jealous! He?s holding me back!
    ? Anakin Skywalker
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/EP3-darkani_ask.gif"></Strike>

    <STRIKE>We will find out who is trying to kill you, Padme. I promise you.
    ? Anakin Skywalker
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/anakin_aotc_wen2.gif"></STRIKE>

    I will not let this republic that has stood for a thousand years be slit in two. My negotiations will not fail.
    ? Chancellor Palpatine
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/palpatine05.gif">

    <STRIKE>That?s why I?m here.
    ? Obi-Wan Kenobi
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/AOTC_obiwan_04.gif"></STRIKE>

    <STRIKE>Oh, not again. Obi-Wan?s going to kill me.
    ? Anakin Skywalker
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/anakin_aotc_wen2.gif"></STRIKE>

    <STRIKE>She seems to be on top of things.
    ? Obi-Wan Kenobi
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/obiwanhanginout.gif"></STRIKE>

    Always a pleasure to meet a Jedi.
    ? Jango Fett
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/Jango1.gif">

    No, I call it aggressive negotiations.
    ? Padme Amidala
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/padme_16.gif">

    <STRIKE>I?m not worried Artoo. It?s just that I?ve never flown before.
    ? See-Threepio

    If you?ll excuse me?
    - Anakin Skywalker
    <img src="http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/attackoftheclones/010-smuggler-widescreen-freefall.gif">

    <STRIKE>I should think that you Jedi would have more respect for the difference between knowledge and wisdom.

    This is my favourite [face_devil].

    Well, to get this gravy train rolling we need to cut ten of the choices. As it says above, I would like all intended participants of this tournament to please pick the five quotes from the above list that they feel are the weakest. Please rank your five in order, from 1-5, with number 1 being the quote that you would least like to see in the tournament. After a day or two of preliminary voting, I will cut the ten most requested lines. :)



    :cool: Mace Windy,
    too windy for spoilers!

    My top five...

    1.) "Begun, the Clone Wars have." -Yoda
    2.) "You must join me Obi-Wan and together we can destroy the Sith!" -Count Dooku
    3.) "I am a slow learner." -Anakin Skywalker
    4.) "I will create a grand army of the Republic to counter the increasing threats of the Seperatists." -Palpatine
    5.) "I?m just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe." -Jango Fett


    We are looking for the BOTTOM five right now, Smuggler. We need to get rid of the ten WORST lines in order to officially start the tournament.

    Good stuff, Mace Windy! I look forward to being able to participate in this tournament.

    At the current moment, however, we have but one problem - there are just too many good lines in Attack of the Clones!

    [face_laugh] Some people might argue that the real problem is that there aren't enough good lines in "Attack of the Clones". Not me, however.

    As requested, five quotes that I wouldn't like to see included in the tournament: (in descending order of clunkiness)

    5. "Oh, not again. Obi-Wan's going to kill me." - Anakin Skywalker

    4. "Die, Jedi dogs!" - C-3PO

    3. "Idiot!" - C-3P0

    2. "This is such a drag!" - C-3P0

    1. "We live in a real world. Come back to it." - Padme Amidala

    Oh, not again. Obi-Wan?s going to kill me That's what I heard in the theatrical release, but on the DVD it's ....Obi-wan's gonna kill me. So either my ears are playing tricks or it was changed Windy.


    On to my list since my last post vanished:

    5: No. I?d be much too frightened to tease a senator.

    4: Ani, you?ll always be that little boy I knew on Tatooine.

    3: The thought of not being with you. I can?t breathe.

    2: I don?t like sand. It?s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here.

    1: This is such a drag!

    "That's what I heard in the theatrical release, but on the DVD it's ....Obi-wan's gonna kill me. So either my ears are playing tricks or it was changed Windy."


    In case anyone is wondering, I took all of the quotes directly off of the DVD subtitles to make sure that I got them *just* right.

    My top 5 worst on this list, or as some of my SF Giants friends would say, worstest, in no particular order....

    If an item does not appear on our records, it does not exist.

    Idiot.

    This is such a drag!

    Die, Jedi dogs!

    Ani, you'll always be that little boy I knew on Tatooine.

    Notice how a lot of these are C-3PO. He was slightly on the annoying side in AOTC, I must say.

    Once again, at this stage in the game we are eliminating 10 of the quotes to make an even 64. You were asked to provide me with the 5 that you thought were the WORST of the bunch. Granted, the above quotes may be your 5 LEAST favorite, but seeing as how you are a FIGS member, I sincerely doubt it.

    I am grateful to all who decided to read before they posted. This tournament is only going to work if we have everybody on the same page.

    For those of you who are confused, I'll do my best to briefly explain it again:

    This is a TOURNAMENT. It will feature 64 quotes from Attack of the Clones organized randomly in four 16 quote brackets. After we've eliminated the worst 10 quotes, I will begin each day by providing the community with a pairing of two of the quotes. At that point, you are all free to check into the thread and vote on which quote from each pairing is your favorite. We'll keep on going every day until only one quote remains - your favorite Attack of the Clones Line!

    The Official Tournament will start tomorrow morning. In the meantime, I am looking for you to vote out the 5 quotes that you'd LEAST like to see in this tournament. The 10 lines which the community least like will be removed immediately by your votes.
