Alm was #4 on the male bracket and he's still got solid recency bias + no alts of him. Pretty good shot, I'd say.I'm pretty sure either Azura, Micaiah, or Camilla will be the top female picks. I don't know which male ones will come out on top (other than probably Reinhardt).
Rein's got Memes still on his side but now that Chrom is in Smash pretty solid chance of him getting more of a boost. Could easily come down to a three way battle between them.
Camilla was really high up, so it's more a question on if the burn out for Camilla is real. Camilla, Eirika & Azura were 3/4/5 respectively and they all had a lot of alts and a lot of bad reaction, but the possibility of a vocal tight knit minority can't be ignored.
I could see Loki getting less votes this go around since, well, Loki's key asset is already on full display in her default appearence which is now in the game. Laegjarn is a huge fan favorite and wasn't available in CYL2, maybe we'll see a swing towards her? Hard to say, especially since she did in fact get an alt.
Also to consider are everyone's favorite skeleboobs, Hel & Thrasir. We can say with certainty that we'll get them eventually, but never doubt the power of horny on main.
Actually, backing up to the male bracket real quick. Now that we have all the Book 2 OCs in the game, alongside a Brave Veronica, and can feel pretty certain we'll get all the Book 3 OCs (even Gustav & Henrietta both have weapons on full display, they'll come eventually), that leaves one big OC gap: Bruno.
Could we see a Bruno surge now that Veronica is in the game?
