27 Hello all on Fri Jun 26, 2015 12:55 pm

This feels like a good place to say hi. I started following Arch with his ME 3 videos and have been a fan since. I voted for ME and comics specifically Marvel. I do agree that ME is problematic because of the equipment issues and the (what always felt like) problems in lore with powers. If cut scenes are canon then Jack can rip apart mechs but I never did that in game scratch . Still I do think it could be interesting if the parameters are ever figured out. I know Marvel better than DC so that works for me. I also always felt that DC had characters that were...to powerful. That maybe just my misinterpretation though.

First of all, hi Inkling, welcome to the forum =)

Second of all, the entire purpose of such a tournament is to see differing opinions and perspectives. So for example, for me the 'lore' levels of power between the characters is more established by cutscenes and accomplishments rather than gameplay. So I'd say Jack (for example) really is that powerful of a biotic... and so is Samara, whereas say Miranda is far weaker in that field. That's just my take of course, there's plenty of valid perspectives.

Interesting thoughts. I agree with that and it's the same reason I try to consider canon characters > actions of the player character. Though we'll be at the mercy of consistent writing as always. i don't see where Shepard would fit in either tbh.

I think Shepard presents a problem as well. I wonder if Shepard is extraordinarily powerful or is the best combination of traits that makes Shepard the best leader/right person for the job but not the best in any area. I always pictured as Sheridan or Deleen from Babylon 5.

I voted Zelda

But can we do the obligatory Nerevar vs. Hero of Kvatch vs. The Last Dragon Born battle.

The Dragonborn yells at the Hero of Kvatch until the Hero of Kvatch turns him into a bad idea while the Nerevarine Reborn leaves the continent so as to not totally destabilize the entire setting for future games.
WINNER: Random Guard #87 who witnessed the altercation and decided it was a STOP RIGHT THERE CRIMINAL SCUM situation.

Most player characters would be a bit tricky, though Shepard is a bit like Revan in that he/she is very charismatic, not necessarily the most skilled or powerful--as far as I understand.

So far I'm seeing Zelda, Megaman, Metal Gear, Comics, and Mass Effect. Going to go ahead and finish out at least one of the existing tournaments before bringing up the next one in order of popularity.

So in future can we ommit Player Characters and OP charactered, who always win unless a certain condition is met.
No characters such as Shepard, Revan, Exile, Dragonborn, Inquisitor and etc - their power levels and everything else is determined by the player so effectively they are cheats.
If we are doing a comic book universe, no cosmic entities etc.
Bottom line, no characters that break the tournament because automatically they win.
Just throwing my two cents in.

Agreed. In general what we'll be doing is leaving up a thread saying "Hey weigh in on whom you think should be allowed to participate", and reasoning will be required in several cases to justify.

I concur. Player characters are a tricky thing to include since we have any number of power levels and other potential baggage to consider.
