Clarify.

2 person amalgam/team consisting of two mid heralds

or

3 person amalgam/team consisting of one mid herald and two lower than mid herald

... right?

See, that's the problem with most of these tournaments, all these PMs to ask about rules. What's the point of only one person being sure of a rule and the other 6/7 drafting based on a completely different understanding?

If you have questions; post them here. Anything discussed purely one on one, prior to rules being set, should be invalid.

FTR that's also pretty much what happened in iD's tourney. When I was asking if I could have Mr Miracle I said he was low herald but mentioned the ale. ID asked me for a brief rundown on the strategy I was planning to rule if he was OK.

I wasnt pming to ask to clear a strategy just being upfront that my pick had a potential (one he hadn't realised ) to exceed tye limits..

If you'll remember in that tourney I made his ruling on unlocking clear while people were still drafting just as I've done here.

There's nothing underhanded I can assure you. I'm more than happy to vet my three picks (and the one denied) opnely in this thread if anyone wants.

Sure, my point is that just because the organiser thinks something might be ok, it doesn't mean the other competitors or judges will agree. Much like your ALE attempt; frankly I'm not sure anyone really believed it was viable OR legal other than yourself and Id.

i think most people overthought what i had. I stated (and correctly so) that my access to it was limited. All the feats of the use of the Ale to any truly great degree are with vast dark emotion (like in death of new gods where scot free was suffering everh dark emotion after Barda's death).

I didnt have that, i had a little snooty anger from Arthur Curry, that is part of bhis character. The amount of the Ale that would unlock was miniscule at best. When DS had only a "portion " of the Ale it barely amped him at all. He was amped to much higher degree by the soul fire and absorbing the energy of the dead gods.
Hell even with the full power of the Ale in DoTNG Scott Free couldn't beat infinity man who was only using a portion of the Sources power as his avatar (yet more proof that the equation and entity are two separate things because the entity is the sources equal in all respects.

What exactly did i do with the ALE in my match, i used it to immobilize my opponent and trap them. I did that because that was realistically all one could do without a much more evil/darker emotional state. Tg ere were plenty of characters i could have picked with those traits but i would have considered that breaking the rules, overstepping ty e mark..

Even still, a more explicit ban on forces (i.e. ALE) that can be above the caps might be in order, to go along with amping rules. In the example of what is allowed (Jeffries/Adamantium), neither the power set nor the metal on its own exceeds the caps, so it's ok.

For reference, BB, I assumed your usage of the ALE was legal because it wasn't questioned much in-match and Id ok'd it. My vote against was due to execution of the plan.

Also, friendly word of advice to everyone: ban the more uber Flashes, and/or overt speed force manipulation. The last tourney managed to be ok allowing lightspeed because really only Jay could skirt in under the caps. But no judge wants to read a bunch of people squabbling over which picosecond feats are better, which is what it will devolve into once everyone realizes there's no reasonable counter to say, Wally or Barry's reflexes other than taking their own speedster.

No that's valid.

2 mid-heralds or you can choose 3 of anything lower is what he asked clarification on

-----------------------------------------------

So far we have:

-Blair wind

-Smurph

-Beatboks

-Abhilegend

-Scoobles

-Darksaint

(Possibly one more)
