    Rules


    Post Count is on!
    Remember when making your posts that the nonspam rule is in effect. It's easy to make a nonspam post, just post an opinion and a reason for said opinion. Infractions will be handed out to those who break the spamming rule.

    Round time is four days
    Once the rounds go up, the polls will stay open for four days. After that time is up, the thread will be closed and the winner will move on to the next round.

    Tie-breakers are decided with written votes
    By all means, defend your favorite heroes! Your posts matter, and can sway the voting one way or the other and can even lead to victory or defeat for your guy.

    Matches can end in death or incapacitation
    You don't need to put your opponent's head on a spike in order to claim victory. So guys like Batman, Spider-Man, and other do-gooders stand a chance, the fight can end in either death or incapacitation. For all intents and purposes, incapacitation should be defined as being unable to continue the fight for an extended period of time, arguably enough for the opponent to be able to walk away from the fight without "retreating." As an example, if Spider-Man completely tied his opponent up in webbing and his opponent is unable to break out of it, that would qualify as incapacitation.

    The matches have no pre-game warmup time
    Imagine this tournament like a fighting game. As soon as the word "FIGHT!" is mentioned, the competitors can do whatever they want to each other. Beforehand, however, they only know their names and what they saw in the previous round. No arguing that Iron Man would have made a special suit of armor for killing his opponent.

    No backup, no support
    Batman cannot call in Robin, Harry Potter can't call in Dumbledore, and the rest of the X-Men can't get Wolverine's back. These are one on one fights.

    Have fun!
    This is supposed to be a fun tourney. It's great to nerd out a bit and have some lighthearted debating but try not to take things TOO seriously. If you find yourself getting angry at your computer, just remember that you're arguing about fictional heroes having a fictional fight on an internet message board.

    That's all for now. Any questions regarding the rules, tournament setup, or anything at all can be asked in the official Ask A Question Thread located in this very section.

    Let the battle begin!

    I just wanted to throw out a quick reminder to everybody posting in the tournament, to clear up any confusion: This is a non-spam section. Regular rules apply, just as they would in the WWE, TNA, etc. sections. You can't just say "Flash wins." or something of that nature, you have to expand upon WHY he deserves to win. It doesn't have to be complex, something as simple as "Flash wins. His speed is too much for his opponent." is just fine. Make sure to head over to the Ask a Question thread or check out the competitor biographies if you have any questions, too.

    Now, let's have some fun and enjoy what should be an excellent tournament!
