Deadliest Warrior Tournament 2012
So while Deadliest Warrior the tv show may be in limbo (it's not been renewed for a 4th season) our Deadliest Warrior tournament is back again. Not a whole lot has changed since last year.
The premise is simple, you nominate warriors you want to see fight. (Though please, try to avoid nominating all the same ones we had last year.) Team battles return again (more on this below).Nominations
To nominate your warrior(s) you can reply here/PM Me
either with their name (and I'll figure out their weapons and all that) or fill out this:
Name: (with a link to their bio if you want. Either a type of warrior or a specific one.)
Close Range weapon: (This is any weapon/power that a person has to get up close and personal to use...)
Mid Range weapon: (This is any weapon/power that affords some distance.)
Long Range weapon: (For the far distances)
Special weapon: (A weapon/power that either doesn't fit in one of the other categories. )
X-Factor: (Something that you think gives this warrior an edge. EX- training.)
If you elect to fill out their weapons, only give 1 or 2 per level to keep things more balanced.
If a character exists in multiple mediums, it is a good idea to specify which of them you mean if you want a specific version (since there are often variations between the mediums. EX- Iron Man in the comics has over 30 armours where in the movies he has 7.)Team Battles
Team nominations are roughly the same as the individual warriors in that the same form is used for each member of the team if you want to specify their individual weapons/skills. (Though this year you can use warriors in the team that have already been nominated individually.)
The 4 people per team from last year worked well so we'll continue that. Though when nominating a team this year, you must list the 4 members you want to see in the team
Teams though must be recognised teams from their respective medium(s), like the Avengers/Justice League. (So no fan-created dream teams.)
You can nominate any number of individuals or teams you like.The nomination deadline is May 28th 2012 at 11:59PM GMT-5. Post-Nomination
After all the entries are received I'll sort them into these categories...
- Futuristic (Laser based weapons)
- Modern (Gunpowder based weapons)
- Past (limited use of black powder, but mainly swords.)
- Fantasy (Super powers or magic.)
- Gods (not necessarily Gods, but just the ultra powerful characters.)
And then I'll pair them up with an opponent to fight it out (again using randomly generated number pairs). I'll perform an analysis of the warriors weapons and put it to you guys to vote/discuss. I can't say how many rounds there will be for now. (It'll depend largely on how many entries are received.)
When a match is posted, people can discuss it for the duration of the tournament. The last match though will only be open to discussion for 1 week since the date of posting.
May the best warrior win.
