    In order to clarify the tournament rules before participation:

    Team Creation

    -We use the draft and item lists previously created for Rumblers League, which can be found in the League site (link below):

    http://rumblers-league.wikispaces.com/

    -Only characters and items worth 6 points or below may be picked.
    -You can have only 4 things (items or characters) worth 6, tops.
    -You will have 100 credits to create your team.
    -Every team must have between 3 and 8 members.
    -You cannot spend more than 30 credits in a single character. Exception: Vehicles do not count towards the pilot's credit limit, so you can have a 30 points vehicle with a 30 points pilot.
    -A character that gets an item, keeps that item for the rest of the tournament and you cannot swap things around between rounds. Exception: Vehicles can carry more than one individual as passengers, if this is feasible.
    -There is only one of each item and character. So if someone has drafted, say, Captain America or purchased his shield, those things no longer can be picked by anybody else.

    Tournament Rules

    To make things as varied as possible, every week will feature four different types of challenges: a conventional fight against another team in a randomly chosen location, a non-combat challenge that the competing teams must solve independently from each other (winner being the one who is best suited for the task or capable of doing it better in the opinion of the voters), a non-combat challenge in which the competing teams can nevertheless interfere with each other, and a fight in which the teams fight separately against somebody else.

    So, for example:

    Week 0
    Teams 1 and 2 fight each other in the Enterprise.
    Teams 3 and 4 have to help Dick Dastardly win a race.
    Teams 5 and 6 have to replace members of the soccer teams of countries X and Y in the Olympics and compete against each other without obvious use of superpowers (or something like that).
    Teams 7 and 8 fight the movie Avengers in Robocop's Detroit.

    The initial idea is to give the odd team out a weekly bye.

    Strategies are strongly recommended, but not absolutely required. However, if you don't argue about how your team can beat the competitors in the fights or challenges, don't be surprised if the others vote for the guy who actually posted an argument of how his team can win the day.

    Any questions or comments before we start the draft?

    No questions from me. Sounds fine. And I won't hold the draft up at any point, unless I'm asleep.

    3-8 people? SO you're not allowed to get a whole bunch of people at the expense of items?

    I wanted a balance and 8 seemed fair.

    However, the thread title contains "rules discussion" in case there are strong objections. Or people decide they don't want in with these conditions, before we get started with drafting.

    If someone for some reason wants to play a joke team of 100 1 credit characters or a serious team with no items, AND people don't mind, that's open to change.

    Probably a dumb question, but just want to be sure, the leeway on "of Choice" items is still good right? So if someone else picks an adamantium staff, I can still pick an adamantium dagger?
    It's a lie! My pants were off the entire time!

    Mind transfer restricted to the power cap, too. Other than that, the "of choice" stuff is good to go.

    So if someone else picks an adamantium staff, I can still pick an adamantium dagger?
    Or an adamantium knife, scimitar or whatever, yes.

    So each thing can be an Item or Person: Ie I could pick two Items my first turn instead of a Character and Item, or Two characters and no items?

    looks awesome Mandy really looking forward to it.

    EDIT: just one question

    Captain America or purchased his shield, those things no longer can be picked by anybody else.
    If you bought Captain America, I can still buy his shield as an item right?

    Well, it's been a number of hours now and no objections have been raised.

    So we start whenever Dalak is ready to go. I'll be PMing the competitors to direct them to this thread.

    Of course. You could also buy a Jedi and then a lightsaber.

    Standard equipment doesn't count towards purchase restrictions.

    Crap, I have to actually start thinking of what my team should be, huh?

    I can't decide between four 6-pointers or a purposefully inefficiently costly group.

    Likewise!

    Was kind of expecting a draft date to be announced, rather than "ok we'll start now!"

    I take back my initial point about not having to wait for me, because I haven't even begun to start putting a team idea together.

    I may need to use the allowed time to make my picks.
