Read the vote question before you click, scrub!

Low-tier avatars, they're everywhere. Login to any discussion platform worth its salt and you'll witness them in droves.

We've all seen them, but until today nobody has asked the vital question: Which is the lowest-tier of all? Which should I pick if I want to main some S-Tier garbage and clown on my opponent with the joke character?

They take many forms, but for this inaugural title match we'll be focusing on a matchup near and dear to many a gaffer's heart.

While I don't care for the anime art style as much as I did when I was a young lad, it's still something. The letters are blanks, or sometimes people who just won't get a damn avatar.

Isn't there a thread where someone makes one for you?

So many alphabet avatars banned for spewing the dumbest shit. Anime avatars are incels but they can usually control themselves.

We should separate regular anime avatars from loli pedo shit, because a regular anime avatar is okay I guess but that other stuff is complete trash and the second lowest tier possible with only furry/my little pony avatars being worse as the absolute lowest of the lows.

Anime avatars are for losers who live in their mom's basements. Letter avatars are for people who don't need to feel special.

An account without an avatar is like a person without a face; I can't recognize or remember you.

Anime is so much better, it's not even a contest. Even if you dislike anime, at least it sets the user apart from others.
This guy gets it.

Ladies and gentlemen, it would appear that Letterposters have taken a strong early lead and dominated the match so far with over 60% of the votes!
And some folks in the crowd are holding up signs with lewd imagery! Others with only single letters! What a spectacle!
Will Anime Avatars make a surprise comeback as the other hemisphere of the GAF world wakes up, or are they doomed to higher tierdom than their erstwhile opponent?

Find out after a message from our sponsors.




They chose a good color for my avatar.
A subtle shade of puke green, quite :unsure:

Isn't there a thread where someone makes one for you?
Yeah, it's still knocking around somewhere. Hasn't been super active for a while though, outside of this work of art by local auter @Melon:



Just start the Fat Val Kilmer avatars vs regular avatars thread already.
It's in the bracket. We're still hashing out details, paying off other people's people, and trying desparately to book Val for a live stage appearance before making any announcements.

furry/my little pony avatars being worse as the absolute lowest of the lows.
Ugh, I had all but managed to forget MLP avatars.

Ugh.

Bitch, you speak when one of your forum celeb boyfriends allows you to speak. Zip it.
Nice day at the beach? :messenger_sun:
