Darksaint vs Beatboks
Damborg vs LoB
Martian Mind vs Smurph
Supermutant vs Deathlash

Predictions for the quarter finals? Tough matches? Mismatches? Favorites?

zopzop
Supermutant is gonna win. Once people start seeing some of Sinister's more insane fights/feats, its all over for the rest of the competitors. For example, this dude was fighting simultaneously on the material plane (vs Colossus/Rogue/etc..) and astral plane (vs Storm/Psylocke/Jean). Havok sucker attacked Sinister and he didn't even feel it. Rogue couldn't drain him, he took over HER body. He can destroy/erase memories and devour astral selves (making you a mindless husk). Those are just the Inferno era showings. He has even more impressive ones later.

He can just [email protected] his way to victory.

Sinister has nothing on Jean love

Bentley
Since I'm judging I'm not going to do my play by play predictions public, because you guys are kids and you'll ***** about it.




You know who you are biscuits

DarkSaint85
Yeah but I can go invisible and stuff.

You guys are all boned.

He defeated Jean, easily. Hell, he defeated Jean while fighting Xman at the same time. This is an easy win for him which is the reason I picked him.

DarkSaint85
Emma has mindphucked him though. So I'd give good odds for her

carver9
And he has outright stomped Emma before.

DarkSaint85
Exactly. So I wouldn't say it's an easy win by any means.

carver9
Also, there was major context to that showing. Emma beat him because he was in Cyclops mind and Emma took advantage of that.

DarkSaint85

I wonder who you would've gotten, had you stayed in. Would be interesting.

krisblaze
Every character here could easily lay claim to victory.

Sparks and Aquaman are two to keep an eye on.

Most if not all of his feats are prep based. Plus his showings are all over the place. In a nom plot based fight Emma, Xavier are comfortably above him. Hell Id argue Rachel as better than him. Hes a prep character

krisblaze
Sinister can throw down for sure but there's definitely some context to his showings yeah.

DarkSaint85
Would've been hilarious if it was just telepaths, and a freefor all.

Then Emma just goes diamond form and punches everyone.

leonidas
yeah there isn't much context at all to most of sinister's good showings. at his best he's a team wrecker, straight up. from easiest to predict to least easiest i'd say psylocke/sinister, jean/sue, aquaman/emma then nightshade/sparks. but who knows--that's why we play the games i guess.

The TAS is why Sinister is my favourite villain in comics to this day. That was the start for me.

No prep at all against Jean. He just beat her. You can keep thinking they are above him but what's shown on panel is completely different. The only person I would give an advantage over him in a TP battle on your list is Xavier. I know about every single one of Sinister showings. You can't win this argument.

You mean weakened Jean? U think Sinister can beat Jean straight up..no. Sinister ALWAYS preps for the X-Men thats his thing. Yes hes powerful but his levels vary wildly. He would not win against Emma in a TP battle. She is way too skilled

Lol...full powered Jean...Lol. Yes, he can beat a non Phoenix Force Jean. It usually take the entirety of the Xmen to beat him.

Carver shut it. Let Supermutant defend his character.

What exactly is a non-phoenix powered Jean guy?

Smurph
Jenny Sparks v Nightshade might be the most interesting first round match.

And Sinister's up against Psylocke in the first match. IMO, people are sleeping on Betsy. I drafted her, I'm biased, but I think she can/should win that match.

Guys, this isn't a debate thread.

I am interested in Nightshades showings, tbh.

krisblaze
She has a boatload, so does Jenny.

This will get interesting.

DarkSaint85
At this tier, everyone is vaguely humanoid (no weird energy forms or whatever).

Surprising how many telepaths there are, though.

leonidas
telepaths can complicate things, no doubt.

True but Sinister has complete control of his body down to the molecular level.

Same. Curious about nightshade though, surprisingly versatile

There is so much porn based on them....

I wish Endless Mike was here. At this rate, all I have to post are porn fanfic scans.

The offer still stands to join my cabal, DS. We could use 1 more.

Be great if characters get randomized again next round.

krisblaze
Here we go, the darkest of saints and beatest of bokses.

DarkSaint85
I assume I'm next

Philosophía
Nobody is next.

But in the spirit of fair play I mentioned earlier, everybody should spread their posts, and not leave them for the last day or something.

I know this is something that's annoying, since it sometimes matters 'who has the last word', so if everybody wants, they can also PM the last post to me, and I'll post them simultaneously.

If not, it doesn't matter the order.

krisblaze
I've always been a fan of posts going to the host.

Philosophía
I'm fine with that, too.

Supermutant
Interesting start to tourney, the bubble-but vid was entertaining.

Philosophía
DarkSaint's strategy is clearly to have people masturbate before reading the posts, so they can think clearly.

leonidas
lol well, can't say the 2 posters don't have contrasting styles.....

Martian_mind
DS is doing rather well, considering. Keen to see how this plays out.

Also, who are we still waiting on?

DarkSaint85
Considering WHAT??

What would that be a misrepresented scan of Sue defending from TP when facing a Jean who doesn't have TP or the scans of alleged superior speed for a character with at best equal reaction?

leonidas
hmm, i'd save it for the match if i was u, it would appear you may need it atm. /shrug

Honestly I'm hoping/expecting to loose. I've over commited with this and struggling to find the time for it. Drawimg a character I've read very little of means a lot more work for me, and I'm using to much of what little free time I have in a role play character build scenario elsewhere. With all 3 of my kids on school hols and me working nites (mrs days) I've only got a couple spare hrs a day at best when I get home from work at 1am b4 crashing for 4 to 5 hrs at 3.

Jean was barely in the xmen for the decade or so I read them. Team was more logan, storm, jubilee, gambit etc.my only familiarity with Jean is the feats I cant use 😅

Philosophía
Bump.

Predictions after almost all of the posts?

krisblaze
A lot of players repping characters they're not overly familiar with and it shows.

There will be some tough calls though.

It's the case outside of comics too.

But as for my predictions?

We're going to lose a lot of telepaths in this round, lol.

Heh. I've never been able to use telepaths well. Whereas someone like Leo has wrecked house on more than one occasion because of it. I guess I've just never been able to argue for it as well as some other advantages, or have never emphasized it enough to be the difference in my matches. I suppose we all have our preferences.

I find that telepaths are too binary for them to be feasible. Either it works or it doesn't, and you're out of options for the latter. But once a telepath was picked, it was normal that the participants would continue to pick them, to counter.

I almost wanted to remove them from the selection, but that would shorten the list too much.

50 Shades of Grey

50 night Shades of jean Grey. I guess no one got it or cared. Whatever stick out tongue

I think LOB will win in the semi-finals.

He'll judge your match.

So...I guess?

Guys when this is over, I want to mention something about the Jean/Sue fight but I got to keep my mouth shut for now.

Philosophía
Does it have any relevance to the current matches?

If not, go ahead.

zopzop
It does. It explains a lot during the Jean/Sue fight. And since Sue is still in the tourney, it's not fair to DS to post anything here until it's over.

thumb up Smurph loses any way amirite?

But if it helps me in any way, I don't want to know. If it helps my opponents (Smurph, and assuming I get through to the final, LoB), then I won't wanna know either.

I live or die by my own ignorance thumb up

Damborgson
DS vs Smurph is going to be a nasty one to judge

Supermutant
thumb up There should be a hall of fame bz thread where DS vs Smurph would enter pretty high up.
