In this 2 v 2 battle each contestant is allowed 1 and only 1 High Meta character each. 1 for each person competing. Note this is not an amalgam. Each person controls 1 character.
Just going to stick with a 3 Post limit per team, (opening Post doesn't count in this case.), so technically 4 posts.
So to clarify the 2 teams will have 3 posts each as a team not 3 for each of the 4 taking part.
For the opening post for each team if they end up exceeding the 10,000 character limit will be allowed to extend it to another post. So if your post came to 13,000 characters you can use another post to put in the other 3000. But this only counts for the opening post and noting else.
No CIS OR PIS
Since it's the people involved taking control of the character(s).
So of course the opponents will know of who is drafting who since it has already been made public. Which means weaknesses , history etc all apply.
Ruling on Amping
Amping is going to be disallowed on all fronts.
Creation of Tech and/or Non Autonomous Constructs/Summons
This is going to be disallowed in prep, but allowed in mid battle
Feats cannot be used if your character is similar to another. So Green Lanterns wont share feats and same with Nate Grey (X-Man) and Cable.
Prep Time is going to work like this, each team will have approximately 1 Minute to raise shields, cloak yourself or teleport.
High Meta limit.
Just below Light Speed.
Reality Warping, Time Manipulation, Duplication (making copies of yourself), Power Copying, Memory Retention.
Things such as Space Manipulation, Matter Manipulation can be applicable if they are at a High Meta or lower level.
Functional Immortal characters are also banned. An example of such characters like this would be Mr Immortal or characters like Lobo (although obviously he isn't in this tier).
Standard Gear Rule
Each character used in the tournament enters each battle with what he is generally known for carrying.
Non standard gear (so gear your character rarely uses, or has only ever used once) is disallowed.
BFR is banned, self BFR is only good for phasing or by accidental BFR due to your opponents tactics.
