Howee Husky wins 2012 fursuit tourney after murrsuit fracasPosted by GreenReaper on Sun 2 Sep 2012 - 17:06
Results are in for the 2012 Fandom's Favorite Fursuit Fracas, with Howee Husky victorious over Matrices' Beef Jerky.
The husky won by a 20-vote margin, 209 to 189. Oz Kangaroo's Duke beat Clementine 200–165 in a showdown for third place.
The tourney was briefly suspended after the quarter-finals, when fursuit builder FirestormSix withdrew Dakkota Wolf, claiming to have been slandered by an opposition supporter.
2012 saw a crossover with the Furry Basketball Association, which provided names for the group brackets used for the single-elimination portion of the competition.
Organizers say almost 400 matchups were made and 70,000 votes taken during the Fracas.

Bucktown Tiger's fans, who go by the name of Shopwreckers, have reason to celebrate. The piano-playing fursuiter has become the first feline to win the Fandom's Favorite Fursuit Fracas, vanquishing opponent Twitch Da Woof in one of the most highly contested finals the competition has witnessed. Both furry musicians were underdogs in their own right, and neither were expected to make it as far as they did.

Furry fandom's foremost fursuit competition - the Fandom's Favorite Fursuit Fracas - may add a pool round prior to the knockout stage, according to organizer and co-founder Rhett Foxcoon.

MixedCandy, Arend lead Fracas picksPosted by GreenReaper on Wed 8 Apr 2009 - 23:00
Nominations for the Fandom's Favorite Fursuit Fracas have closed, with 326 fursuit characters proposed for the 2009 event - an 11% increase over 2008. Voting for the knockout tournament will begin once all nominees have been contacted for their permission.
Last year's event ended with a landslide victory by Nevermint's Jäger from One Fur All Studios, who attracted 319 votes in the last round to Greifer's 195 (Tilt Longtail/Jax). In 2007 — the first year in which the tournament was held — Frazzle (Rose Quoll/self-made) beat Sophie Cabra (MixedCandy) in a close 135-122 final.
Many now turn to full-time costume makers for their suits, with professional mascot builders MixedCandy and Arend Studios each responsible for twice the entries of any other individual builder. Still, the top five account for less than 40% of the total, and just over half the nominees were created by builders outside the top ten.

The contest was organized as a series of one-on-one knockout rounds, with a simple vote deciding who would proceed to the next round. Groups were formed from 16 regions, named after those fursuits entered with the most nominations. Results were calculated on the journal, and reported on WikiFur.
