It doesn't necessarily have to be the next one, but maybe in the distant future, once we get organized enough for it. Also, it doesn't need to be for any prize, since it's just sort of a fun thing for people to get together and do.
We do it a lot on the board I go to right now, in different forms. One is called,
Basically, a set even number of participents choose 3 comic book characters (within reason, don't go choosing The Living Tribunal or some guy you made up in the third grade in some little comic strip) to fight as a team in a neutral and enclosed environment against other contestant's teams. Each contestant provides a strategy they would see their team using to win, and then the fights are voted on either anonymously through email or here on the board. Unfortunately, sometimes this comes down to a simple popularity contest or somebody voting based on a lack of knowledge about a given character. Not much can be done about it.
Another variation, with Character bidding currently under way here: http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=206&topic=33157804" />http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=206&topic=33157804">http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=206&topic=33157804
This is called,
The Eisner Cup
I'm not altogether sure if this was created on that board, or somewhere else. Regardless, it's a much more complicated and solid version of the 3vs3. The first stage involves everybody nominating characters to be eligible for the Cup, and people with enough knowledge regarding fairness deciding which of the nominations gets in or not. These characters are then put into various Tiers (usually about five) of power. Each tier has a set amount of "points" for all the characters therein. Tier 1 characters might be worth 10 points, while Tier 5 would be 50. Then, like the 3vs3, a set even number of participents sign up for the Cup. What proceeds after that is the Bidding stage, seen in the link above. All participants are given the same amount of points, maybe around 200-300, to bid on 6 (instead of 3) characters they want in their team. To bid, they must send an email to the administartor of the Tournament containing who they want to bid on, and how many points they bid. They cannot go over the set amount given to them. This stage could go on for several rounds, or just one. Finally when bidding is over, the contestants with the highest bids on their selected characters have their team assembled. Again, like previously, the teams are pit against eachother and the fights are voted on by users.
I just thought this might be fun for the community to get together and do. Really helps everyone get to know one another.
