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.
this

catching other people's pokemon sounds great too.

all right, low meta it is.

--teams of 3.

--the 3 characters will be subject to my okay--and i'm NOT the forgiving type when it comes to this issue

--competitor will have have the choice of amalgamating his characters or keeping them as individuals or a combo of the 2. this decision CAN be changed from match to match.

--i'm considering a redraft scenario since i think it adds some excitement but not sure if i'll go after each match or after the first rd is finished.

--10secs of prep of RELATIVE PREP--ZERO TOLERANCE

--reverse-order drafting in second rd, first-come, first-serve in rd3

--looking for 6 people seriously interested. i'm going to go ahead and say for the sake of argument that we have the following:

1. smurph
2. bw
3. digi (you KNOW you want to kick ass with parker . . . big grin )
4. ?
5. ?
6. ?

3 high quality debators. be great to get 3 more of similar quality.

--format again: 2 pools of three, rd robin format. top 2 advance to x-over semi-final and top 2 to the final.

I would be interested, but it depends when you're planning on doing it, as my A level exams start in May and carry on till mid June, and I need to focus on those for awhile...

...of course, Mega Man probably isn't allowed, and I forget who the 3rd component was...someone who gave him that color scheme. Cue Ball or 8-Ball or some D-list villain sh*t.

Still. Forewarned poozers.

Same with my senior thesis\degree exams (hope I described that graduational shite right in its American analogues). Anyways, I don't care, I compete purely for fun and I'm going to present a bit tweaked to fit in with comics-only format version of the dreaded Beyotch of Fire.

Guys, tourneys are long things. We'll all have something crop at some point. But as long as it won't keep you away from a computer for literally weeks at a time, it can be dealt with. If you want to enter, enter.

and banned characters so far include sabes and jakita wagner (who is really misplaced on that tier thread . . .) i'll also pre-emptively ban ambrose chase, much as i would LOVE to see him used in a tourney . . . sad

At least give us a day or two notice once you find a 6th please. I'm not gonna do a "ZOMG ZERG!" of the draft thread, but I currently don't even have an idea for a team. That can be remedied very quickly, but a draft in, say, 2 hours would undoubtedly hurt some chances of people who aren't ready to draft.

Also, ban Gideon and similar power sets. Also, what's going to be the ruling on power amplifiers, since I know there's a few low-level muties floating around with such powers?

Can we get a general list of banned powers?

I too have few team ideas, but I can work on that basically after tomorrow night, unless some fantastic team inspiration comes to me before then while I'm trying to crack this philosphy assignment.

general tourney rules will apply. gideon is NOT low meta. no power copying, speed is capped at quicksilver level but that speed advantage does NOT grant any advantage in prep--not even in thinking speed. no time manip, no reality manip. matter manip directly on the opponent. none of that should really be an issue given the level of this thing.

and of course, no loopholes. seriously. my goal was to try and have a tourney where the winner was based more on who debated the best, as opposed to gimmicky characters and/or equipment/tech.

as far as tech limits--think mr terrific's standard gear.

no tp ohk, no mentally controlling opponents. tk is capped at about classic cable level at the very outside.

the standard stuff, pretty much. everyone in this thing should be familiar with the basics. any direct questions, pm me. any character concerns pm me BEFORE you choose them.

and digi--no worries on the draft. you'll have a day or 2. i'm trying to round up some judges as well. any volunteers?

to those involved--i could easily run a rd robin with just 5 competitors. 5 solid debators still makes for a good tourney. i could give the sign up til say, sat, then say the draft happens sat night if we don't get a sixth.

i know steam runs out of these if delays crop up. i'd rather go ahead with 5 interested people the hold out for too long just waiting for a sixth.

if you'd all agree to that of course. otherwise, we wait and see if we can grab a 6th. anyone heard from goob? i'd have thought he'd love a chance to whoop some ass with cap . . .

1. You may want to start PMing potential judges. You can never start too early with that, or have too many.

2. Is Mr. Terrific low meta? I guess it was with prep in exotic battlefields, but I remember I think Blair doing some insane sh*t with him in that tourney delph ran on the other website.

Classic QS is also listed as mid meta on the tiers list. I probably don't have an issue with him at this level, but I wanted to point it out.

3. Also, let's hold out for 6 another day or two at least. Two groups of 3 sounds much more fun for some reason.

4. Lastly, make a thread for this leo. This is pretty much official now, and deserves its own.

Very cool. I'm glad this thread panned out.

I guess make your own tourny discussion thread if you want.
