Bracket Battle 2017: Round 3 Recap

Level 15

1702_thwack_BracketBattle-Sidekicks_Landing-Page_525x133_v.1.png

March madness brings April Awesomeness. It’s April, which means we’re getting close to the exciting and dramatic finish to Bracket Battle 2017! Round 3 had me hitting the refresh button and kept me guessing on who would win each matchup.

Let’s see who from the elite eight will move on to the final four:

  • Watching these two battle for the lead was like watching a quidditch match. Hermione used every spell in the book, but it was Groot who won this match in the end. bigmclargehuge gave some insight into the struggle between Groot vs Hermione, “ This is a tough call for me. Hermione was a great companion in the story, but Groot was an integral team player. I voted against Groot vs. Ford Prefect, but I gotta go with Groot here. He just seems like the better sidekick!
  • Samwise fought the good fight, but now he’s headed back to shire to eat some po-ta-toes. stevenastem commented, “I like Watson's approach to Holmes better than Sam's approach to Frodo.  Plus I think you can argue that Sam is actually the hero with Frodo his simpering sidekick.  Sure Frodo is 'in charge' but I think that was a mistake.”
  • Garth’s Cinderella story finally came to an end this round. He was the underdog in the play-in round and managed to party all the way to the elite eight. Excellent. Pinky is definitely the underdog (er mouse) taking on Chewbacca, the favorite to win in the next round.
  •   Chewbacca continues his streak with another landslide win! ecklerwr1 is already predicting Chewbacca will win the whole thing, “Chewbacca is going ALL THE WAY!!!!!

Were you surprised by any of the round 3 outcomes? Comment below!

To quote our friend Garth, it’s time to “live in the now” and move on to the next round of bracket battle. Check out the updated bracket & start voting for the ‘Distinguished’ round now! We need your help to determine who will move on to the finals in the ultimate sidekick bracket battle!

Go Chewbacca go Chewbacca go!!!

I am just glad all the Hermione / Agent K nonsense has come to an end.

My poor Pinky appears to be on his way to getting squashed.

I said to myself at the start that Chewbacca would make it all the way but I did not post....  wait... if I didn't post it on thwack, did it even happen?

I really don't like Chewy.  I can't see him losing, though.

I think the advantage here is that everyone knows chewbacca. That pretty much seals the deal

It almost seems unfair.

Well, Chewy needs to save his strength - I'm afraid there are Pinky fans out there that are going to vote against Chewy in the next round - that would be a travesty!

I don't think Pinky fans are that vindictive, are they?

Media & recent mass exposure of a character appears to be what it takes to win each bracket.  Although I'd rather have Hermione by my side than Chewie or Pinky or Dr. Watson, I suspect Chewie's massive media exposure / appeal will win over all.

I would agree, for some Chewie has been known to them for a good part of their lives...while Hermione only in the last decade and change as their kids grew up....

I'm sorry, but Hermione is a law abiding do-gooder who can't pull droid's arms out of their sockets...

Jfrazier
Level 18

likely true...but then she has never seen a droid or gotten mad at one for losing a game to it either....

I guess these weren't the mudbloods you were looking for!
