@docnick: Bullhawk is using some of Hawkeyes gear like his bow isn't he? Also Hawkeye can't use Bullseye/Hawkeye feats as far as I'm aware. Same with Bucky/Cap. Bucky using Caps weapons.

@i_like_swords: why don't we start it now and allow the spots to fill later?

The longer it takes, the more people leave.

@i_like_swords: why don't we start it now and allow the spots to fill later?

I'm in favor of this idea. Right now we have two teams at near completion and one empty slot. As soon as those teams are ready we have 7/8 matches and are only waiting on one team.

If any of you can recommend this tourney to someone to help fill the slot that would help. I'll start round 1 soon.

@docnick: I think it'll be alright, it's not like there's tons of clones going around. Just two guys with different gear. If there is issues it'll be a lesson for the future and we'll get through it lol.

@sovereign91001: God damn yes you're back. And the other slot has been filled, looks like round 1 is starting with 16 teams sooner than I thought.

@i_like_swords: I think the Claymore Crew is a bit above the tournament limits, to be completely honest. Just an FYI. The other thing is whether or not Hercule being hit so hard he flew 10 miles away and got up without a scratch is considered canon.


Magic: Hmmmmmmmm.... I have a list of characters with magic equipment. I was wondering if that's allowed. Conjuring daggers for throwing, making his steps silent, etc. etc. Obviously nothing crazy like indestructible equipment, or something that summons hordes of monsters or anything, but things that have enhanced cutting power (not unlimited, moreso allows a normal sword to cut through obsidian or enhanced metals with mild effort, rather than being incapable of cutting something like that), enhanced defense (again, nothing crazy, or even more powerful than Batman's suit), or improve the user's speed mildly (well below speed limit still). Things like that.

Additionally, I have a character who has magical wands with spells in them. However, none of them are over the energy projection limit. He also has teleportation items, but obviously I can just simply argue as if he didn't have those, they aren't essential to his arsenal.

Thanks for reading,

@floopay: I don't see how the Claymore crew is above the limit, the Clare I'm using is BEFORE she trained with Irena I do not see her above the limit. Miata does not have any feats that put her above the limit and we know Raki is not and Clarice is almsot laughable compared to other Claymores.

@floopay: In what aspect are they too much? Eh, has he got any other durability feats other than that, that are canon? If not we could say that it isn't canon and move on from there.

If all your magical equipment is within the rules as you described then go for it. What kind of spells are we talking and how powerful? Would you personally consider them street level, or atleast suitable for the tourney?

Claymore Crew - Oh, I thought you were using the crew, as in, most recent versions. I was gonna say, wtf are you trying to get away with, Clare is hypersonic at this point! :P

Hercule - I haven't watched/read DBZ in years, and I was just inquiring as to how canon that particular feat is, as I don't remember it overly well, I do remember it happened.

Wands

Fireball - Greatest feat as of now is it blew apart a single caravan wagon (think Oregon Trail sized wagon).

Lightning - A single bolt of lightning, but much less powerful than a real bolt of lightning. However, it would kill a normal person (much like Cyclops's attack would), but people with higher durability, pain tolerance, and etc. seem to be able to tank them and continue fighting, though most definitely still hurt.

Sticky Goo - Creates a 10-15 foot in diameter area of stick goo, however, it starts off as a bullet sized projectile, and is rendered useless if it doesn't actually strike the person. However, if it does stick them....well, it's pretty durability, would be a hard one to get out of!

Warmth - Renders people immune to the harsh conditions of cold environments.

Teleportation - Obviously not allowed

Overall: With the exception of teleportation I'd think they are fine. The Sticky one might be borderline, but because it's not exactly a bullet speed projectile, it's something that can be dodged pretty easily if someone knows it's coming or sees him launch it, I would say it's about right.

@i_like_swords:

One final confirmation. Whether or not you allow or disallow them won't change my team, just what equipment they can use. What are you rules on abilities to create allies (Jamie Maddrox duping, someone summoning shadow clones, summoning pets, etc.)?

My Team:

  • Drizzt Do'Urden (Forgotten Realms)
  • Jarlaxle D'aerthe (Forgotten Realms)
  • Zaknafein Do'Urden (Forgotten Realms)
  • Artemis Entreri (Forgotten Realms)

No duping. No shadow clones. I did however allow someone to have one small pet which aids their master in combat. Nothing game breaking but I'll allow something like that. Your team is definitely all within the tournaments rules in terms of physical stats and their powers? In that case I'll add your team.

Powers:

Globe of Darkness - Creates a globe in a 20 foot radius that obscured all normal vision, infravision, ultra violet vision, etc. 3 of my characters can do this 4 times per day, lasts about 5 minutes.

Levitation - Can levitate straight up and down, but not in any direction. Three of my characters can do this once per day.

Faerie Fire - Lights an opponent up in purple and blue flames. Does not harm them at all, just illuminates them to be easier to see. Three of my characters can do this whenever they want. Lasts about 5 minutes.

Physical Stats:

All within the rules, I could elaborate further, but I can assure you they are all within the limits provided. None of them are more durable than Batman or Deadshot in their suits.

Round 1 is about to start

The teams are just about complete so with that I will now begin round 1. I've made match ups and they all look pretty interesting. The debating will go on from now until this time next week. Obviously some matches may end quicker in which case I'll open voting sooner.
eight victors enter into round 2. four into round 3. And just two will be left in the finals. The rounds will all have their own unique settings, so I hope you have all picked a well-rounded team. Now that that is out of the way, I will begin creating the match ups! Good luck everyone. If I have any advice; be thorough in your points and leave out no details. Enjoy!

Bob wishes you all the best of luck.

On a side note. Since Diredrill is a judge as well as a participant, I will need one of you to volunteer to judge his fight, since he can't judge himself. You will only have to judge his matches, nobody elses. If any of you are interested let me know. Thanks in advance.

Judges

@dondave @thedarklordpandamonium @jokergeist @diredrill - The matches are starting and will be taking place this week. Keep a close eye on the matches and be ready to make your votes this time next week. Matches may end early so if they do I'll open voting early. Thanks for helping the tournament out in the form of judging. One other thing; when you make your votes, please give a decent explanation about why you chose someone, and base it off their arguments, not just their team!
