    Default KJ's "Guardians of the Galaxy" Live Action Tournament/League

    Welcome to "Guardians of the Galaxy" Live Action Tournament/League!

    For those of you familiar with standard tournaments on Rumbles, and those of you familiar with the classic Rumblers Leagues, this will be something of a mixture of both (in the sense that it will be slightly more complex than a standard tourney, but it won't require anything close to the dedication of a Rumblers League).

    For this tournament, each participant will pick a team of 10 (ten) members. Once the tournament starts, a round-robin format will begin, in which each team will find themselves dropped into 12 (twelve) different scenarios spread over 12 (twelve) different rounds/threads.

    Each scenario will be a disaster, catastrophe, invasion or mission of some sort from existing fiction. Each participant will be given the option to present their argument as to how their team is best-equipped to deal with each scenario, and users will then be asked to vote for the top 3 (three) that are best-equipped to do so. The team with the most votes will get 3 (three) points for that round, the team with the second most votes will get 2 (two) points and the team with the third most votes will get 1 (one) point. At the end of the 12 rounds, the team with the most points win the league. There will be no knockouts - all participating teams get to participate in all twelve rounds.

    So, for example, the teams might each be dropped into the middle of a specific galaxy-threatening scenario. Whichever team is deemed best-equipped to save the galaxy wins 3 points and so forth (if no teams are deemed capable of prevailing, users will simply vote for the team they think will come closest to doing so).

    Here are the rules for picking your team:

    - As already mentioned, 10 members will be picked for each team.
    - Every single team member must be from a live action source (and any live action characters only get their live action feats).
    - The theme is "Guardians of the Galaxy" - meaning every single member of your team must be a completely different species/from a different planet (and if you have a human, you can't then pick a half-human/half-alien character, for example). Please specify the species when you pick.
    - Every team member must lose in a physical battle to MCU Thor 10 times out of 10 in Khazan one-on-one.
    - Every team member must lose in a mental battle to Fox's Charles Xavier 10 times out of 10 in Khazan one-on-one.
    - Each pick must serve a "role" (to be specified with each pick). So, when drafting, you should say "I pick Character X (MCU - Human) - he/she will serve as the team's leader". You can choose the names of these roles yourself.
    - One pick at a time per entrant.
    - Wait until half an hour after your last pick OR until 5 (five) other entrants have made a pick.
    - Additional teams MAY be allowed depending on the number of teams we get.

    There will be no prep, but if your team get dropped in a scenario and you say "Team Member X heads off for half an hour to build a bomb" or "Team Member Y takes the team aside to discuss tactics", that will be allowed - just bear in mind that may result in your team being deemed to have taken longer than others to complete their task, whatever it may be (and that might lose you votes).

    Team members won't be able to call on friends or allies - the only people able to aid them are their 9 other team members.

    Everyone will be acting in-character. So, if you have a team member who loves chaos and destruction, they are unlikely to want to save the galaxy from an evil threat. That being said, they may be useful for other tasks. Pick carefully.

    I WILL be entering this tournament, but I will allow 2 (two) other entrants to make their first picks before I consider making mine.

    I have tournaments running at the moment. This one will begin only after at least one of those has come to a conclusion.

    Apologies for the length of this post, I just wanted to be as clear as possible! Make sure you read it all if you want to enter!

    Go!

    Thanks for kicking things off, Cleric.

    If you don't mind, please refrain from picking your next team member until someone else has made a pick (otherwise it could, potentially, just be you having a free run at it until you're done!).

    Oh and please don't forget to specify roles (it's just so I know people aren't just power-stacking and are putting some thought into it).

    This needs a kick-start, clearly, so I'll make my first pick if nobody else has done so within the next hour.

    Hancock (Hancock)

    Hancock is an "angel".

    He's the team's unpredictable muscle/wildcard.

    Ohh, thats' perhaps a tough sell on Thor beating him. Hancock's as fast and is stronger, after all.
