Blair Wind
The Iron Avenger

Gender: Male
Location: Stark Tower

The current favorites have to be the returning champions from the last few tourneys: Me and Scoobless based solely on experience (which has been shown to be important in the past) and the fact that our partners are considered "big guns" (DC and Digi respectively) as well.

But PR/Rewmac are regular forums, as are bigbran/goober. And plenty of people have made names for themselves taking down "big guns" in tourneys before (I myself, for example, was hardly a favorite going into the Ironman level tourney where I pwned Scoobs).

So...

If 8/1 is the average, we'll start Me/DC and Digi/Scoobs at about 6/1. PR/Rewmac, Goober/Bigbran and Roldz/Nino at 8/1. King Kandy/trollyl and Devil Lance/BB at 10/1. MM/Captain at 12/1 (captain hasnt been around has he?)

This could all change though, and obviously will.

So, what odds would all of you have?

Anyway:

There's always a few things you can look to (since I've seen my share of these things).

1 is experience. Blair/DC and Scoob/Myself are the tourney vets. It doesn't mean we'll win, but historically "tourney vets" have fared well (even if they haven't won).

2 is a strong draft. We'll know more as rounds 2 and 3 play out. I'm sure everyone will have their opinion, but I'll withhold mine until we know more.

3 you can't really account for. Occasionally someone just comes out of nowhere. But generally you can sort of see it coming with a solid draft or a lot of tourney involvement.

P.S. Blair's assessment seems about right. But it will obviously change. thumb up

i pretty much agree with you on the odds part, this tourney could go the way of the tourney vets walking it or the newcomers causing an upset... i think once the draft is finished things will start to become clearer...

Nah just having fun.


....


And people like Blair and myself actually gained a lot of noteriety in tourneys (though I didn't win mine). I probably wouldn't be a mod if I hadn't been so active and successful (yet respectful and intelligent) in the old herald amalgam tourney (which caught the attention of Tron and Paola).

So this could be my break into the big time...

Yeah, but we already had sign-ups a couple weeks ago. Since you're kinda new, you might be better off just watching the proceedings anyway, then if you're interested you can get involved in future tourneys.

Hmm. It depends. From what I've seen of Digi and Scoob, Scoob knows a lot about Iron Man, and I haven't seen much of you Digi, no offense. I like Scoob's style, because he gives the cold, hard facts. I respect that a lot, and I think it gives a huge advantage.

I'm assuming the DC is Darkcrawler, who is one of my favorite guys to talk comics with on SHC. He's very aggressive with his debating style, and keeps people on the ropes. As for Blair, he's also aggressive, but in my opinion annoying, which keeps people's minds off balance. Sure it's low, but it's effective. The only problem is that when debating against someone who is maticulous, you'll leave yourself open for a counterpoint that might f#@$ up your whole presentation.

The underdogs are Bran and Goober. Both these guys are good buds of mine, and know their facts more than anyone I know. They are both awesome and presenting literally everything they can find to win a debate. I kinda imagine two dudes sitting next to each other with a mountain of comics reading through each panel looking for feats. I wouldn't be suprised if they win the whole thing.

So, that's how I see it. Can't wait to see how it pans out.
