It's been so long since I logged a contest I forgot to synopsize. Rocket started off slow with a condition boost and some less flashy moves than Proxy's consistent combos and Warlock's copying, but the condition boost helped out when Rocket took a page out of Roxy's book and threw out smartly-placed combos.

Musubi had control of the lead position for pretty much the entire contest, which is really handy with the Hot Potato rule. Roxas was in position to rack up points, but got handed the bomb on Close Combat (hey GameFreak, how is that move Smart?). Musubi and Drakillis were tied at the end, but Musubi gave Drakillis the big startle for a clean victory.

Pretty much what you'd expect from a two-Ditto contest. Glory Days held a commanding lead pretty much the entire time, adapting well to Thotja's startle-heavy strategies. :assaultvest: got screwed by the bomb, while Deez Meltans managed to dodge bullets.

Mwehehehehe pulled off a brutal Scratch -> Fury Swipes combo early on, prompting a series of ruthless startles. Shelly Girl wasn't exactly leading, but Ophelia's Synthesis fizzled and the others couldn't make up the gap for fear of catching the potato penalty.

Yumeko played ridiculously well, with strong, attribute-matching combos and predictive copying putting them far ahead of the curve. Myrielle tried to appeal high, but Not Gengar's ruthless copying kept them tied up in the end. Bloodmaw tried some combos, but they were too low-scoring to work out in the end.

Childish lived up to their name, going for low-appeal startles rather than the risky, high-appeal plays that kept Mwako afloat. Musubi used combos well, too, but Sabrina knew when to copy and pulled ahead as a result.

Lots of startles; Pointy Cuddles went for them every round, but got kickback from the crowd in the form of a piping-hot potato. Griffith rocketed upward with a high-appeal combo near the end, but Emily consistently appealed high and matched the crowd for massive gains.

The carnival rule made this a big meme, but it was pretty alright for baby's first festival. Good clean fun until the last few rounds devolved into copychain nightmares. Broseidon was a frontrunner for a while but Artemis's copying and Aran's chaining put the specter and dog in the lead.

Rosencranz worked really hard and reaped the benefits; the rest were buffeted on the waves of the fickle crowd. Any path to victory ended for Marta when the one big startle of the contest hit them right in the middle of a risky move.
