Hello Everyone, I'm going to be trying to restart this area of the forum and try and get some new and interesting battles going.
Now then to the first of such battles i present the One Manga Battle Contest
How this contest will work is as follows:
- The first battle will be selected by Me and my judges. In the battles proceeding that the judges will select a winning side like the previous battles. They will also select an MVP, which can come from either side, who we felt was the better debater in the battle. This MVP will receive an award(pending) and have the opportunity to select the next battle.
- We will work with the MVP to select the next battle. In the interest of keeping the battles open to many people it will be restricted to manga in the Big 3 & Semi-Pro sections (with other manga being included depending). This means battles from: Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Toriko, Attack on Titan, Hunter x Hunter, Tower of God, Kubera, Nobleese and Nanatsu no Taizai.
- After the first week and people have suggested things we will use battles suggested here as a way to give the MVP ideas about what they want to do if they don't have any in mind. Also if they cannot pick one or are unavailable we will have a poll here with some of the judges favorite suggestions and the winner will get made into the new Battle Contest.
- Once a battle is selected with the approval of the judges that battle will go up and the MVP will become a judge included in selecting the winning side, writing up a judgement, and selecting the new MVP, as such a MVP cannot win 2 weeks in a row. Also all judges are allowed to participate in the debate as they see fit, since it will be collective choice we will keep out any bias from participating.
- A rule we are going to start with will be no crossover battles. It brings un-needed complication to the battles and takes away from people's understanding and will just further limit debate. As this Battle Contest goes on we might lift this rule.
- Including the above the Battle Contests will take place like any normal OMBR tournament round. There will be two characters fighting to the death in a small arena, there will be no specified location, just a clear and small battlefield (ala the Hyperbolic Time Chamber). There might be minimal restrictions depending on what is selected, but we are trying to have as few as possible and trying to find match ups that are close on their own merit.
- At the start the judges will be: @Relinquisher, @DaEvilWithin, and @Tale. If you would like to be considered as a replacement you can say so here. If any of us are unavailable or don't know enough about a certain battle we will try and sub out with someone to keep the contest going consistently.
If you have any questions or suggestions put them in this thread instead of the general suggestions thread. Also please suggest any individual battles you would want to be used with any of the series listed. If you want a particular series to be included on the list of included manga suggest it here, ill add a poll if something gets enough support.
