    I thank Vasto for locking the sign ups and LPH for locking the editing period (and AS for locking the thread :p). Sorry, but I have been busy the past few days...

    I quite like how this turned up. We could create a perfect roster with 16 people and I love how we have several new players joining the fray (including Azeruth, who I'm happy to see finally moved on to battling instead of just discussing/voting).

    If anyone, non participating, would like to randomize match-ups (including locations) and send them to me, I'd be glad. Would do it myself if it was not for fairness and all.

    Sorry, Azeruth, but RNG is RNG.

    I personally am most interested in... Well, my own battle of course. The fun thing about it is I will battle with JoJo, who has been looking for a rematch with me after since his defeat by my hands in the very first tournament.

    I believe Atlantic will be picking the 20 pointer for your opponent, there are only 3 choices though, Yuka, Fukuro, or Bacchus and we've seen Erza/Bacchus before.

    Also, I'm not going to be giving out any advice or answering questions for the duration of this tournament. First, it's too much effort and I'm lazy, and secondly, I don't think it's fair.

    Spoiler: Team Ratings

    Atlas Flame:
    I don't know how I feel about his team. You've certainly got excellent mobility in it, and some good attacking strength, but there's not really any synergy in it besides the obvious combination. Cobra is a pretty deadly opponent to fight against, and you've picked a prime time to use him in a tournament, but I don't see many options to be very creative here. The problem is, I think, that you've basically just picked a bunch of strong characters (except Warren) just because they're strong, without really putting too much thought into possible team chemistry. It's fine, depending on your play style, but it can also be a big mistake, under some circumstances.

    I'm not sure what to make of your team, really. It's powerful, and has elements of brokenness in it, but it can still be defeated if it's lack of synergy is exploited and the right strategy is employed.

    Attacking Power: 7
    Defensive Power: 3
    Mobility: 8
    Synergy: 3
    Creative Potential: 2
    Danger Rating: 7
    Overall Rating: 6

    Zeref:
    This is a fairly well rounded team which has a lot of options as far as being creative goes. Your team isn't particularly excellent at anything, but it's good in just about everything. You've got a lot of options for attacks, and it's not like your team's offensive capability is weak or anything either, so that's good. As far as defensive spells go, Lyon provides a lot of options. Your weakest point, however, is definitely your mobility. Lyon doesn't really move around that much, and Wendy isn't that fast either... though, Duke Everlue does provide some leeway with this.

    Lyon is an all round solid choice with good stats all the way round, and Wendy is pretty much the optimal support character who goes with everybody. Though, having said that, your team lacks a certain degree of 'brokenness', and I don't think it's particularly difficult to defeat either.

    Attacking Power: 7
    Defensive Power: 7
    Mobility: 4
    Synergy: 7
    Creative Potential: 10
    Danger Rating: 6
    Overall Rating: 7

    JoJo:
    I'm not sure about this team either. Ichiya... is a fairly decent choice, I suppose. Very bizarre, and certainly not what I would have gone for, but then, I suppose this is a trial, and he hasn't been properly used before, so there's that.

    As far as attacking power goes, you're decent. Ichiya packs the bigger punch and Fukurou is stronger than Wendy, but the fact that they are pretty much limited to close range combat leads me to believe Wendy will be much more valuable as an attacking player and a supporting player. My advice would be to not put too much pressure on her all at once, as is often the case with support types like her, and to play with your strengths. In the way of being defend yourself goes, you don't have a whole lot of options, but on the plus side, you have good 'staying' power due to Wendy and Ichiya's abilities. Your mobility, frankly speaking, is kind of terrible, bar Fukurou.

    You've picked a good structure for your team, in terms of point distribution, but I can't help but feel that you've picked some weird characters.

    Attacking Power: 6
    Defensive Power: 3
    Mobility: 3
    Synergy: 6
    Creative Potential: 6
    Rating Rating: 6
    Overall Rating: 5

    Raijin Flare:
    I like your team, and it might possibly be one of the most balanced around, to be honest. Offensively, it's quite strong, and while it may be lacking slightly in terms of options for defense, your superb mobility more than makes up for it. The fact that you've picked Freed and Bickslow (two very rarely used characters) makes me happy, for both the aforementioned reason, and the fact that they should definitely have some excellent teamwork and chemistry with each other.

    Bickslow's dolls also leave some room for getting creative as well, assuming you want to try and take the risk. As far as being dangerous goes, you're slightly lacking, but it's still a dangerous team.

    Attacking Power: 8
    Defensive Power: 5
    Mobility: 10
    Synergy: 7
    Creative Potential: 7
    Danger Rating: 7
    Overall Rating: 8

    Space:
    A two character team is pretty rare, and kind of risky, but you've picked two very strong characters, so maybe it's not that bad. Mirajane is probably the most destructive character on the tier list, potentially, including even Azuma (due to his restrictions), so your attacking power is most definitely high. Though, the problem with that is, you've sacrificed a lot of defense, and you basically have no way to defend yourself whatsoever, which... kind of sucks. But, assuming you can pull out a decisive enough victory with your nuke character (which you can easily do, against some teams with lower defense ratings), that shouldn't even be relevant.

    You've got excellent mobility, but your synergy is almost nonexistent and you have very little - if any - room for creative potential (or maybe you can surprise me). It's a fairly solid team and definitely not one I would like to face, but I don't particularly like it.

    Attacking Power: 10
    Defensive Power: 2
    Mobility: 10
    Synergy: 3
    Creative Potential: 3
    Danger Rating: 10
    Overall Rating: 8

    Final Giku Tenshou:
    I would not like to face your team in a match, to be honest. Cobra and Simon is a match made in Hell, or Heaven (depending on how you see things), and I'm all too familiar with your style of having quick decisive victories (since I used a very similar team before).

    Having said that, though, your team isn't particularly great with attacking power, defensive power or mobility. But given your choice of characters, I'd hardly think defensive power really all that matters to you, and Cobra's attacking power is more of a long term thing anyhow. As far as synergy goes, your team is pretty good, but there's not much creativity that can be used here.

    Attacking Power: 6
    Defensive Power: 3
    Mobility: 5
    Synergy: 8
    Creative Potential: 1
    Danger Rating: 10
    Overall Rating: 7

    LovePeaceandHope:
    Decent team, and the the choice of characters made here was quite sly on your part, given the recent feats of your two lead characters. Your destructive power isn't bad, but it's not excellent either; a lot of it is dependent on Lucy's Aquarius summon, meaning a location without water could be troublesome. Though, you have Cana in your team also, which could potentially fix that issue, but that's assuming she doesn't get killed. Your defensive power isn't fantastic either. A strong enough attack could probably plow through most defenses you put up, but then, stuff like 'raw' offense or defense clearly isn't the aim of your team, so much as synergy and creative potential, which you have a lot of.

    You have decent enough mobility as well, thanks to the likes of Virgo.

    Attacking Power: 6
    Defensive Power: 4
    Mobility: 5
    Synergy: 8
    Creative Potential: 8
    Danger Rating: 4
    Overall Rating: 8

    Melodie:
    It's a fairly decent team, I guess. Sting is a Dragon Slayer, which obviously provides a lot of starting attacking strength, though your team is missing a lot of defense and mobility. There is the fact that Sting can go underground, but it's still quite obviously not going to be as good as a summon or character whose specialty is digging. You've gone for an all out offense team, like you did in the previous tournament, though you haven't gone for the super heavy hitter/support combination like a few others have, which is good, since I don't like those teams.

    Sting and Yukino were former Guild team mates, and Alzack/Bisca are also team mates, so the synergy should be good to. I like what you've done there.

    Attacking Power: 7
    Defensive Power: 2
    Mobility: 4
    Synergy: 7
    Creative Potential: 7
    Danger Rating: 6
    Overall Rating: 7

    Superman:
    When I look at your team, and then your match, I breathe out a big sigh of disappointment. Your team is actually very good, and pretty much has everything. Mirajane is one of the heaviest hitters on the tier list - moreso than Azuma - and while your defensive power is virtually nonexistent, you have a lot of mobility, synergy as well as creative potential, which is rare for a team which boasts a high tier. Not only that, but your danger rating is also going to be high because.. well, Mirajane, as well as Kamika, given her abilities and how little knowledge people have of her.

    You could have done so well with this team, and it's a shame to see that you lost, despite this being one of my favourite teams in the tournament.

    Attacking Power: 10
    Defensive Power: 4
    Mobility: 10
    Synergy: 8
    Creative Potential: 7
    Danger Rating: 10
    Overall Rating: 9

    General Mael Radec:
    Good team. Unlike a lot of the other teams, it looks like you've gone for a very defense heavy option by buying Midnight. None of your team members are particularly strong, so your attacking power is slightly low, but Midnight pretty much offers the premiere defense of the tier list due to her reflector magic, so you're in luck there. As far as mobility and creativity goes... well, you have some options, but I'm not going to say them, though there's already a hint as to what it is in this very paragraph.

    Your team has some decent enough synergy, and given the element of Midnight, I'd be inclined to say that it's a fairly dangerous team. Moreso at short distance.

    Attacking Power: 5
    Defensive Power: 10
    Mobility: 4
    Synergy: 7
    Creative Potential: 7
    Danger Rating: 7
    Overall Rating: 7




    I'll do the rest, and an explanation of what each thing means, later.

    Was our battle randomized? Or did you do this one on purpose? Not that I'm complaining but I'll be looking forward to our rematch. And wasn't it in the exact same place and distance?
    Honestly though, I think you put the Creative Potential pretty low. Not like I'm gonna elaborate on my plans. lol

    It was randomized, but I'm glad it was. Now that you're saying it, it indeed is the exact same place (don't know about distance though).

    It's almost the perfect rematch :amazed

    As much I want to, I can't start matches from my phone, especially not when I am busy.

    Would anyone care to start new matches around 4:30 PM GMT (in less than 3 hours)?

    Otherwise the last batch of round 1 matches will start a little later.
