Before you start
When making a new battle thread make sure you understand both characters / Team you are pairing off. This will not only prevent your thread from being locked due to an unfair battle but will also allow you to debate in your own thread.
Now on to making the thread.
First step and perhaps the most important: Check to see if the thread has not already been made, there is a few ways to check this one is to use the search function provided by comicvine, which you can learn to use in this thread search Function and Dupe Threads Or you can use the re-cap thread to double check Battle Re-Cap I would suggest using both to be on the same side. Also make sure to read the site rules before hand as well:
Now if the battle has not been made before, then you will need to click the “Start a New Topic” button found at the top right of the comicvine forum page. (See picture)
Now that we have done that we need a title for the battle; most titles should include who is fighting e.g Batman Vs Captain . If you wish to do a battle that has already been created but you have a different set up, make sure to place “read OP”. OP stands for opening post and will alert users to the fact that this is not just a straight out fight. Make sure that the forum you are posting in is the battle forums, if it is different change the drop down option to Battle Forums.
Okay now making the actually battle itself, things you will need in your OP will be.
Link to the characters pages and use current pictures of fighters, unless you wish to have an older version fighting E.G.
How to Link Characters to their page.
this sometimes can change the outcome of a battle, it is best to think about this for your battle and if you can provide images.
Gotham docks at night.
Gear is also a factor to bring into a battle, what weapons or gadgets are you giving the fighters.
Both Batman and Cap have normal equipment add pictures where required.
4. DetailDetail is an important factor, make sure to give as much as possible about the fight, what distance, strength and so on does each character bring to the table.
Both fighters start twenty meters apart; they are fighting for their lives. fighters have morals on and have had one hour prep and know who they are fighting. They can call one person for back up.
If you need to set rules for your battle then do so, do not be afraid to tailor a battle to make it more fair
Rules: Back up can not be anyone over 5 tones or have invincibility or magic use.
