the answer is no, obviously.

olympics would be waaaay to hard to judge.

Oh I know but I'd like to do something deviating from the norm.

I actually already know who I'd pick. But it would be like 3-4 picks out of about 6-7 good ones available at any level for females....there's really not enough to make an interesting tourney. There'd be a random-ass lottery to get the 1-2 best at any level, and everyone else would pretty much be screwed. I'd probably either get my first choice in the draft and roll to the finals or just forfeit my matches.

Deviation from the norm typically only works if the steps taken are minor.

If it was run competently, I'd actually like to have seen Evangel's tourney style put to proper use.

Has anyone ever done a prep battle tournament? Like pure prep, more like a chess match than a fight (though a fight could be one dimension of the tournament).

i could host a street-level tourney. i'd love to take part in one as well, but prolly about time i hosted one.

i'd do a non-team format (ie you compete on your own), maybe 3 team members. i'll do it if i have 6 individuals are will NOT back out of the tourney. 2 pools of 3. round robin in pools, last place knocked out, 2 plays off against 1 in a x-over semi final then a final match between winners.

who'd be interested?

I ask cause I'd be SERIOUSLY interested, but I think I'll be internet-less starting May 5th. So unless the tourney was starting ASAP and lasting little over a month...

Blah. Street. Gimme a few days to mull it over. I've been wanting to enter a tourney, and I'm sure leo would run a good one, but Street is probably my least knowledgable level. I'll need to see if I could come up with enough potentially competitive teams to feel confident about drafts.

By street you mean street though, right? No low metas sneaking in? Because there's a lot of tweeners like Azrael for example, and just street is a surprisingly small draft pool.

It just doesn't seem like there is much of a selection in the street-level tiers. Realistically, if one person were fast enough with their drafts and picked up 'good' street levelers the first go-around, it'd likely be pretty easy for them to clean this thing up.

Perhaps a tourney for all characters between Streetlevel and Low Tier/Low Herald?

Which is why any "street" tourney on the forums to this point has actually been a low meta tourney, give or take a few characters depending on the exact rules. But yeah, it's an issue. The best solution is usually to make a few pertinent bans on "cheap" powers for the level and allow the majority of low metas, but I'm sure there's a variety of ways it could be pulled off.

I don't know if I could participate in terms of entering said tourny, but I think I could def devote time to judging if that would help out.

hmm, i'd have thought that there was a pretty good pool to draw from. could always just make it 2 characters per team which would only be 12 characters. i KNOW there are 12 solid street guys out there. the second rd would be reverse order of the first, btw.

especially since all the best street levelers get their title as the best by beating the other known street levelers.

you pick batman, you automatically have a plethora of scans to draw from that are specific to practically all of the dc martial artists, and conversely picking any of them means you have scans of your guy losing to batman. wink

same goes for captain america i guess

One problem I forsee in a street/low meta tourney is someone like Mr X stomping a huge number of people, due to the fact that reletivly few street levelers have any forms of TP resistance...
