Summit Voting Part 2: The 2nd spot goes to Tweedy

Comments

People were conspiring to pay money for summit votes? Oh no, how diabolical
I mean, it's not just the votes (it was the default invitees too he and others didn't fully agree with). But yes, in terms of wanting a GOOD weekend of competition, it SHOULDN'T be a popularity competition. Popularity =/= good (am I really preaching this to adults in 2019?). I'd be enraged, too, if Sherry Jenix made it over someone even like Burrito Voorhees. Everyone should be.
 
A conspiracy? Bruh. Raising funds and trying to get your friends into summit is not a "conspiracy". It's not like they were pulling some sort of heist or deceiving anyone. People are out here trying to make these huge sums of money mean something. If I were dropping thousands of dollars on someone, I would definitely want to drop it in such a way that it'd have the highest chance of clinching a win. Otherwise, it could go to waste.

If anyone has a problem with this - then you should take it up with the Summit system. The vote-in system is about campaigning, funds, and strategy. It has been for years. I understand that a lot of folks here aren't familiar with it.

Also: Summit is simply not just a competition. It's not necessarily where you'll find all the best players in the world compete. It's absolutely also about the personality, atmosphere, and production too. It's a show for the viewers. It's not merely a meritocratic event, as much as some would like it to be. That's just not what it is.

Raiding funds for your friends is OK, but the reason people are mad is because people were begging for contributions with "We just work so hard for every vote", when the whole time they were secretly plotting to use somebody else's money to push themselves in.

They were literally trying to keep Tweedy out. It’s not just “oh they were just orchestrating votes to get in”, they were making sure Tweedy didn’t get in. That’s why he was so pissed and people didn’t believe him. Then the screenshots came out and the same people who said he was wearing tinfoil hat are saying “eh, no big deal”.

Imagine how any one of you would feel if your peers were actively trying to prevent an opportunity you had just because they didn’t like you. Regardless whether he “brought it onto himself”, y’all would be pissed too ESPECIALLY if no one believed you at first.

Also like @CrimsonShadow said, they were acting like they were just grinding for votes and everything and that’s where the votes were coming from. That’s super shady no matter how you slice it. Glad me and Crimson finally agree on something LOL <3

Side note, this wasn’t directed at you obviously Dr, lol
 
The summit is an advertising event, not a competition event. Why do people not understand this yet.
There's a winner at the end, right? That numerous participants are trying to achieve. That by definition is "competition".

The Summit's main priority may not be the competitive aspect, but that doesn't mean the competitive aspect should have no principle behind it.

Luckily, it's all self-correcting as generally ppl deserving of votes actually get them. But that doesn't lessen or invalidate Tweedy's concerns any less.

edit:
I should add, I'm aware Summit added requirements for players to be eligible to even get votes. But I was relaying the points independent of that, as directly related to the whole subject of Tweedy's issues w/ the process at the time.
