Long Story Short: There's a list of characters and add-ons with point values. You get 30 points to do with as you will! Once we get 8 or 16 participants, we'll do a single-elimination bracket-style tournament. Scroll down for the list. Rules are below.
You can post your team in the thread, or you can PM it to me. Matchups between participants will be determined by random number generator.
Once all of the teams have been submitted, I'll make individual threads for each debate.
Please stick to generally accepted debating practices and refrain from trolling. Treat your opponent with respect and dignity. If spectators want to correct misinformation they may, but in general let the 2 people debating keep the debate to themselves. Once a debate is finished, we will call a vote and any Viner who wishes may vote for whom he/she believes would win the fight. Please vote for who made a better argument as to why their team would win, NOT who you like better or which characters you like better. This is not a popularity contest.
-All DC characters are their Pre New 52 versions.
-Both Teams are aware of the situation and who their opponents are.
-There is no prep time, but a basic list of their opponents' powers is given to each team. It doesn't include personality traits or weaknesses. If characters have prior knowledge of each other, that can be used.
-All characters are "in character" unless otherwise specified.
- You ONLY have 30 points to construct your team. You will be disqualified if you are over this amount.
-Victory is by death, knockout, BFR or incapacitation.
-Team chemistry does come into play.
-Characters with guns have unlimited ammo unless specified otherwise.
-Characters with bows/throwing knives have unlimited razor arrows/knives unless specified otherwise.
-Characters still need to reload.
-Your team MUST consist of at least 2 characters. You can have more than two if you want, as long as you have enough points left.
-The same character can be picked by multiple debaters, they are not removed from the board once picked.
-You may not use more than 3 add-ons for a single character. Team add-ons do not contribute to this total.
-No tele-dropping, tele-dismemberment, or tele-BFR.
-All characters are limited to only Comic Book feats, with the exceptions of Video Game characters and Anime Characters.
-If a debater fails to show up for an extended period of time (greater than ~ 4 days) then I will be forced to disqualify them.
