I've kinda been wanting to do something like this before and I think I might finally have both the time and urge to actually do it. However, the idea itself is still very rough, so I'm hoping to both gauge interest as well as get some input for ideas. And, if that's done relatively quickly, we can use this as a signup thread too.
So the basic idea is that, instead of the usual tournament formats (whether that be the free-for-all vote-based 5 member teams tournaments or the credits-based structured leagues), each participant creates what is essentially an army.
Each team would have a base of operations, a leader, a genius, a doctor, a pilot, an animal (you know the drill), but will also be allowed to pick things like a generic fleet of vehicles (as well as 1 main vehicle) and an army of generic foot soldiers.
So, for instance your team might be based at Castle Grayskull, the leader might be Superman, the genius might be Dexter, the animal might be Kong, the fleet might be real world M1 Abrams tanks, the foot soldiers might be Storm Troopers etc.
Other than that, the premise would be much the same as other tournaments. A mash-up of 'taculars and fight-based tournaments, so to speak.
So one week might be a simple versus match, the next week might be who copes best in fending off Galactus, the next week might be that the teams have to attack Apokolips etc etc.
Each slot (leader, genius, fleet etc) will have a power limit (so your leader might not be allowed to be more powerful than Superman, your genius might not be allowed to be any more powerful than Spider-Man to avoid people using Superman level people in this slot etc).
So would anyone be interested in this kind of thing?
It wouldn't necessarily have to be scheduled weekly either. We could just do it in a "the round is over when it's over" capacity.
I'd be interested in hearing ideas about slots and challenges and anything you would add/remove/change, especially from anyone who might be interested.
In a nutshell, it's the Rumbles Wars Tournament and it will be an army-building, team-based competition.
Lack of interest will result in me not running it, so don't worry, not a big deal or anything. Just an idea for something different.
