i'd prefer it that way, however, if everyone WANTS it opened to low meta, i'd be more than fine with that. i'm just offering to host. i'll host whatever level is agreed upon, though the format would be the same as i mentioned.

if 6 people can decide on a level and sign up i'll host. simple as.

I guess it depends on the nature of their powers.

I mean, Batgirl's body reading and Taskmasters photgraphic reflexes might be seen as powers by some (although imo, they're not really powers in the same sense as X), but then those aren't exactly match ending techniques like move reading telepathy...

That would probably become horrifying to compete in or judge.

I mean, the one tourney I have been in we were given 10 mins of prep, and things still became quite insane even with that small limit.

only problem with that it that the street guys often become redundant. if i'm hosting, it will be something where all charaters are evenly leveled.

Amalgam or a team of three? I have a low level meta amalgam I have been toying with the idea of using for a while (no prep needed. Yes. You read that correctly. I said no prep needed). If it does not pan out with the rules here, I am still willing to use it in a battlezone. If anyone is interested PM me. Might not happen for a while, but might as well see if there is someone who wants to do a battlezone (if the tournament does not pan out)

How so? The only reason I said I would not need prep is because the characters have no need for it. That and most seem to define me as someone who uses prep as a crutch. Thus, I've been thinking about several teams for a while that do not need much prep. The one I am thinking about in particular fits the low meta level.

Hmm...

I was thinking about an elimination tournament. Each person would draft 4-6 characters (street to low meta) and participate in blind draw matches (you'd know who your opponent was and who they had on their roster, but not which 2 characters they'd be using in the match).

With a loss one of the two characters used in the match would be forfeited to the victor's roster. Participants would be eliminated when their roster was depleted to 1 character .

No prep. No amalgamations. Just run n' gun.

I like leo's idea of keeping it strictly to street level and making teams smaller. Sort of a minimalist tourney with just 2 to a team, little or no prep, and some punchy-style debate.

Meh. I'd prefer to open it up to allow for low power levels, but it'd be k either way.

Seconded. Having some kind of power (even the low level kind), opens up tons more avenues than everyone wanting simply martial artists for the street level.

To keep things simple and fast, just disallow prep time. To keep things interesting, allow up to, say, Spider-Man level powers.

That'd be my idea anyways.

If that's what you guys vote for, then cool. But it would no longer be a street tourney in any sense. Sans prep, there probably isn't a street-leveler who should be drafted over many low metas. I agree it opens things up...I just liked the simplicity of street for the sake of something different. In all KMC's tourneys, there's never been a truly street-level tournament.

Meh. There was a time when Spider-Man was considered "street". At the time it seemed fairly legitimate, it's just by the new narrow definitions that they don't fall under the category.

I'd rather have a tourney where every debate didn't feel exactly the same though, and that's what I'm fearing if it's solely no powers.

I guess I just get a kick out of the idea that every match will be a variation on "no, I punch you harder and faster." I smile when I think of it.

In either scenario, I'd vote to keep it to small teams, little or no prep, no amalgams, etc. Again, I think we've done cosmic omni-busters to death...you would know that better than most. And even the few low meta tourneys ended up being insane either due to amalgams or battle locations, or both. It's fun, yes, but we honestly have no idea what a more subdued tourney would look like, or what kinds of teams/debaters it would favor. I wouldn't mind finding out.
