    i'm talking about like...wall level or 1 higher.
    powers and shit would likewise be limited to those who can a) only fuck up a wall with those power or b) whose abilities only extend/reach/cover/destroy a wall.

    no other restrictions besides reality warping/ absolute defense-offense would really need to be given the above because anyone who violates the criteria would be disallowed. scaling people down wouldn't be permitted either. they've have to met those criteria.

    but...in prep, which would be done without their opponents universe, there would be no restrictions.

    not trying to step on the already up torunament toes so this would be when that one finishes...
    just wondering if there is any interest... i mean interest in someone else hosting/launching/running/etc

    Replace Willy's nuke strategy with someone that can bring in an entire nations armies worth of wall level cyborgs with their resources and tech.

    Contesa as mentioned.

    A tourney this low is facing the issue that certain abilities can just carry, and that what resources a character has access to are far, far more important than what most characters bring to the table.

    I don't think that's really going to be a problem if you manage your matches accordingly.

    I would be up for it, but it depends when it will take place.

    No supernatural powers, scale down people who are building level to wall level so we can have the most amount of people.

    Just noticed this.

    So you want someone else to host? Why not yourself?

    Anyway give me 6 or 8 or 9 contestants at least then I will do it.

    It might be kinda fun, in a different forum I made a thread with a few mainstream characters with only feats from their first five chapters and that was pretty similar to wall level.

    batman tends to carry exploding batrangs beyond wall level.
    tony depends on the incarnation since some have like built in crap within his body
    both are far from the most broken picks if the restrictions remained light.

    ambrose chase is the most beast for wall level...

    Wall level is a bit too restrictive when we have characters like Solid Snake reaching small building level durability by "just accident" him surviving some tough shit.
    Even if wall level (let's say capped at 10 MJ) restrictions are in place, you should be much more lenient with it. Allowing a few stronger characters to scale back to this.

    Also I suggests a considerably higher treshold for heavy weapons and explosives.
    The kind which is cumbersome and overall more difficult to use (and easier to avoid) than simple weapons and casual attacks.
    For these the ceiling could be 100MJ or even 1GJ.
    Really, you don't see many missile launchers and explosives that are not in the small building level range.

    That, and, you may want to put some more restrictive rules otherwise.
    Albeit I think banning all supernatural powers is a bad idea.
    Because whether some ability is natural, induced by technology or supernatural is only an arbitary distinction.
    We're still talking about people who can potentially punch harder than the cannon of the M1 Abrams and may even out-sprint F-15 fighters with ease.
    So that'd just only give people a loophole to mess with.
    Beides, with no special powers I think the tournament may even get a little boring.

    what about this-
    banned pre-prep
    reality warping/ absolute defense-offense / auto adaptions or shields, kinetic manipulation, and power steal /boosters

    limits
    small building level dc
    mach 100
    abilities cannot have coverage/reach beyond continent level (i.e. if u can twist a mind from a continent away it's too much)

    banned in prep
    -everything in pre-prep in addition to multiplication, energy/matter manipulation, and power boosting.

    additional picking:
    each team picks 3 characters
    each team may pick 1 items from any fictional universe that do not violate any of the limits noted above.
    each team may pick 1 vehicle from any fictional universe that does not violate any of the limits.

    I'm down for a low-tier tourney. But wall level...? Lol, we'd pretty much be restricted to MMA fighters and U.S soldiers.
