    Default Ladies Day Tournament - Discussion and Sign Up

    Premise is simple enough. Teams of 5 Women (no children, teenagers are fine), 2 teams per player.

    This is an arena challenge, so fighting ability is a necessity.

    Rules:
    1. No Reality Warpers
    2. No Speedforce users
    3. If they can bust up a planet (even the Moon), they are too powerful for this tournament
    4. No one who is omnipotent and/or immortal to the point of being untouchable and impossible to defeat.
    5. No duplication of characters, including alternate universe versions.
    6. I reserve the right to set additional limits if needed for fair and balanced tournament.

    Feel free to ask questions or offer comments or suggestions. Or post teams. I will review teams as needed.

    You have ten days to post teams and work out issues. If enough teams register, Tournament will begin on December 20th.

    Voting is strongly encouraged. If you make a team, be prepared to vote.

    Embedded links to info on team members (Wiki, Comic Vine, or similar sites) strongly encouraged.

    Are we allowed to pick from any source, or is this just comics, or just movies, or what?

    How many teams can we have?

    Any source is fine, comics, books, movies, tv, etc.

    It's in the OP - 2 teams per player.

    Hey Tami, few questions:

    By speed-force users, are you trying to say that anyone with speed enough to combat effectively at light-speed is a no-go?
    Is this going to be a team match in the form of five 1v1 matches or actual team fights of 5v5 in the arena?

    1. By Speed-force, I mean Flash and anyone who can tie or beat Flash in a Speed Fight. So, Light Speed and anything close to it is a no-go. I don't want to see automatic curbstomps based solely on speed.
    2. 1 on 1 (however, I may mix it up and do at least one team on team)

    Pretty much impossible to avoid unless you ban super speed outright. I can already see several characters who are going to auto-win any given match thanks to speed, unless they fight another speedster who happens to be on their level. Granted, speed isn't their only power, but it's what'll let them win before the enemy even has a chance to blink.

    Also, I'm assuming Time Stops are banned?

    If a character has more going for it than just speed, and if their speed isn't such an issue as to guarantee an automatic curbstomp win every time, then I probably won't complain.

    Timestop - yes, it probably would be best to ban that as well. So, I'd say no to Homura.

    Note: Wonder Woman has already been picked, but it just says "DC" which by default rules should mean current - hence me picking the post-crisis version. However, if for some reason that gets over-ruled, I'm calling dibs on Nu.
    The OP says no duplication of characters, period. If someone else has Wonder Woman, then she is off the board.

    Ah, I read that as "excluding".

    In exchange for this I am allowing characters from the same work/universe to be on the same team.
