Darth Vader finally won This Is Madness on his third trip to the final bracket, defeating last year’s champ, Obi-Wan. Here’s hoping The Force Awakens really does a number on fandom next year, because when the most exciting thing that happens in the brackets is a Jar Jar cheating scandal, things may need shaking up.
Hondo here, with a headache. I had a big party this weekend after winning the preliminary round over that Mando masked man, Pre Vizsla. At least that’s what my men told me happened. And they would never lie to me to have a party.
Back to business, err… This Is Madness. On the light side, there is Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano. Hondo would like to remind you that I did once capture Obi-Wan, and he was pretty cool about it later, when he showed up at my base looking for that Darth Maul guy. But Hondo also once captured Ahsoka Tano as well, though she later talked her way out with some cute Jedi brats. So I have a bit of a soft spot in my pirate heart for her. Vote Ahsoka. Besides, Obi-Wan won last year.
On the dark side, it’s Boba Fett against Asajj Ventress. I don’t think I would want either of them showing up at my place. Boba Fett has lots of guns, but Asajj Ventress has a lightsaber and the dark side. In my experience, I can deal with guns. So vote Asajj, because I don’t want to make her mad.
Back to the party!
Your favorite Weequay pirate, Hondo Ohnaka, is back and
begs demands that you immediately go vote for him in StarWars.com’s This Is Madness. And then share this message with all your crew members and friends. and even enemies. Hondo will reward you later.
Also, if anyone wants to slice into the This Is Madness server and just declare Hondo the winner, it would save a lot of time and effort.
Anyway, in the Light Side, there are two clones: Rex and Gregor. Rex is a friend of Ahsoka’s, and Ahsoka is a friend of Hondo’s. So Captain Rex it is. He might have to owe me one.
It’s your pal, Hondo, the only pirate to capture Jedi and Sith at the same time. The results of the first day of This Is Madness are up, and I am not pleased. Not pleased with any of you. I told you to vote for Hera Syndulla and the Inquisitor. And look who won – Leia and Grievous. Okay, Leia is fine with me. But that rusty robotic thorn in my side? Never!
Anyway, onto day two. On the light side, we have Yoda and Qui-Gon Jinn. Qui-Gon got himself killed by that horn-headed Maul, who also once trashed my base. So he can’t be all that great of a Jedi. Then again, Obi-Wan was his apprentice and I have some respect for that guy. Then again, I also captured him. Yoda, on the other hand, seems to be a pretty powerful fellow, winning the first year and all. I’ll go Yoda.
On the dark side, there is Jango Fett and Greedo. Greedo gets my sympathies since he speaks Huttese and all, but seriously, he’s not much of a bounty hunter. Jango can at least shoot first. Jango Fett.
Welcome to you! It’s your old pal, Hondo, and once again, the dashing folk at the official website have started up their This Is Madness bracket game again. And once again, Hondo Ohnaka, scourge of the space lanes, will reign supreme. Never mind that they show Yoda and Obi-Wan as past winners. It’s all lies, I tell you.
Watto has got some good tips on the competition. But don’t listen to that flying gasbag; let me tell you who to pick. Because if you do for Hondo, someday I might let you live instead of kicking you out of an airlock.
Anyway, the first match for the Light Side: Princess Leia vs Hera Syndulla. Both of them are those pesky Rebels you keep hearing about. But a princess and former senator? Ransoming her would bring more credits in. Then again, if I captured Hera, I’d probably also get her ship. And I could always use another good ship. Hera Syndulla.
On the Dark Side: General Grievous vs the Inquisitor. That four-armed cyborg once trashed my base. I’m still not over that. Pick the Inquisitor!
This is Madness 2015 begins. The annual March Madness rip-off has begin, and you can vote for play-ins for the next couple days, before it starts in earnest.
In a second victory for the light side, Obi-wan Kenobi has won 2014’s This Is Madness Star Wars Character tournament. Two-time dark side champ Darth Vader also lost to Yoda last year.
It’s a rematch for the ages as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader face off in the This is Madness championship round. Who has your vote?
It’s Fate of Four time in This Is Madness, as Obi-wan Kenobi and Han Solo face off for the light side, and Boba Fett and Darth Vader for the dark. These matchups will run through the weekend so vote… Err. As your heart tells you.
