    Yep, it's time again to begin of the fun games I hosted over last winter. This time though, I figured I would begin during the spring this time, so that it won't be so tedious as schoolwork will be out of the way.

    In case you did not participate last time, the fighter character tournament is when you nominate a character from a number of fighting games out in the video gaming universe. Games like Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, etc could have 1-1000 entrants in it, and the winner of the showdown will go down as the second ever champion of the Fighter character Tournament.

    Last year, Ryu of Street fighter fought Kasumi of Dead or Alive in the championship match, and came out on top! Will he repeat this year? Or will one of the many combatants defeat him and win the showdown for it's sophmore run? LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

    Here are the rules.

    1. You guys will pick the combatants. I want you all to list 8 names from a fighter game, along with what fighter game they will be representing. If the fighters represent 2 different games Yoshimitsu for example), just pick one game he will represent.

    2. Some games that become fighter games will not be eligible. Games like Marvel VS. Capcom, Super Smash Bros, Mega Man VS, etc. that have liscened characters that are not from an original fighter game, will not be allowed and if someone picks a combatant from the game, I will ask them to pick someone else.

    3. Some characters, like Ryu Hyuabasha, The Spartan Nicole, Link and Spawn from Soul Calibur, etc. Are also not eligible because they are not original fighter game characters.

    4. The top 12 from last year's fighter battle will recieve automatic bids into the tournament. DO NOT add them to your list.

    Other than the rules above, everything else is fair game. Once we have either 128 combatants, or once there is no interest and we just begin going.


    Here are the automatic bids into the tournament this year.

    Ryu (Street Fighter) WINNER
    Kasumi (Dead Or Alive) RUNNER UP
    Hanzo Hattori (Samurai Showdown) SEMI-FINALIST
    Raphael (Soul Calibur) SEMI-FINALIST
    Scorpion (Mortal Kombat) QUARTER-FINALIST
    Guile (Street Fighter) QUARTER-FINALIST
    Forrest Law (Tekken) QUARTER-FINALIST
    Kyo Kusanagi (King of Fighters) QUARTER-FINALIST
    T-Hawk (Street Fighter) TOP 12
    M. Bison (Street Fighter) TOP 12
    Shun Di (Virtua Fighter) TOP 12
    Heihachi (Tekken) TOP 12

    Because I have OCD and I like even numbers, I will nominate 4 more fighters for the beginning of the tournament, remember you should nominate 8 fighters instead of 4, this is just to make an even number.

    So my next 4 are as follows

    John Talbain (Darkstalkers)
    Fulgore (Killer Instict)
    Hayato (Rival Schools)
    Voodoo (Wargods)

    I chose those 4 to show you the range of fighting games you can pick from. You don't have to diverse them like this, they can all be from the same fighting game if you so choose, but these are just examples of lesser known games. It doesn't have to be the best fighter game to have a nomination, but it must be a fighter game.

    Entrants are open right now, and I will begin to make a master list in a few days.

    P.S

    I got to be more clear on my words I think....

    I wouldn't classify it as a fighter game, mainly because it is not a one on one fighter type that I was thinking of. Games like Yakuza, fighting Force, etc I would not want in this...

    Also...you can nominate 8 people...I kind of prefer it to keep numbers even guys.....I guess it's ok if you do less, but I honestly prefer 8 from each nomination.

    No problem Links. Although, I only used that picture of Faust as it was roughly the same height as all the other pics. (Note that he is kneeling, yet the same height as Sol standing.)

    Link, I think you should leave Ryu out this time. Declare him the 2006 winner and leave him ineligible to win this time. I think that's how Game FAQs does their character showdown, for example. Just my opinion.

    I'll be posting my nominations within the day. Don't close registration yet!
