Gonna try in the next couple of nights. Mitch is pretty open...but life has gotten in my way with everything this last 1 1/2 weeks

This is the famous "Mitch horseshoe" at work isn't it?? He knows this is a no-win matchup, so his only hope is to torpedo your schedule??  :laugh:

I am pretty well open anytime that Nick isn't :)

I'm giving Drywall the win, as I won't be able to make it online to play him today (last day of deadline).  Sorry dude, if I can get online another time, let's just play it out for fun.

Halfway through the round.....and half the games played...can we live the dream and have all the games resolved before the deadline??

Also time to think about the next event, I was thinking a straight-up format, but some people were talking the "Franken-Lackey" style of random SS and backstage with a different backlash and a third arsenal..... I'm all for opinions and thoughts folks?

it might be fun to play best of the worst.
everyone who enters picks a bad superstar. once everyone enters they are assigned on of the pool at random. this way if someone picks someone who isn't really bad they can't be assured they will get them and give an advantage to a competitor.

BUT in all honesty that sounds like fun and would help some realize how much better some of the so called bad superstars are. When the Brood released, I thought they were possibly the worst, and I'm 2-0 with mine and I believe Mitch has a build as well that does pretty well...sometimes all it takes is for someone to actually sit down and build the superstar instead of just looking at their set and moving on

My preference would be Franken-Lackey, since let's be honest, I can already build a bad deck. I don't need to be assigned a bad superstar to do it with.  :-\

That said, maybe Tourney 13 can be one of the two formats, and Tourney 14 the other?

On format for next time - I think Franken-Lackey is simpler so we can get the next tournament moving and done pre-ACMT (which is usually when revisions come out).  I would like to try the "bad" deck format, but how can we agree upon who the "bad" superstars are?  I guess we'd have to start with:

1) No Legends
2) No Tag Teams or Stables
3) Very few females/divas

All of those groups get good perks that can take them out of "bad" status. 

Once we get to that point, how do we decide on which single male superstar(s) are bad vs. which ones are good?  There are a couple of obvious ones (poor Funaki), but by and large we probably need a pool of 20-30, and I'm not sure there are enough "bad" superstars to support that tournament.

12.) Eric Rowan
13.) Evan Bourne
14.) Funaki
15.) Goldust
16.) Hacksaw Jim Duggan
17.) Heath Slater
18.) Hollywood Hulk Hogan (Non Throwback)
19.) Irwin R. Schyster
20.) Jack Swagger
21.) Jeff Hardy
22.) Jeff Jarrett
23.) Jerry Lawler
24.) John Morrison
25.) Justin Gabriel
26.) Kaientai

32.) MVP
33.) Norman Smiley
34.) Paige
35.) Prime Time Players
36.) Raven
37.) Raw Guest Host

42.) Santino Marella
43.) Scott Hall
44.) Sheamus
45.) Sin Cara
46.) Skip Sheffield
47.) Stevie Richards
48.) Team Hell No
49.) The Corre
50.) The Dangerous Alliance
51.) The Heat Seekers
52.) The King of Kings (Throwback)
53.) The Legacy

62.) Xavier Woods
63.) Yokozuna

There's more than a few questionable choices in there (depending on who you are). Many of these guys aren't "bad" per se, just many I never hear or read about people building or playing; others seem to be right on the cusp of being good...many seem to be missing "something".

There's obviously room here to cut half or so, thoughts?

See that's a problem though - "not played" does not equal "not good".  On a quick look, DTRJ would steamroll that field.

30.) Maryse
31.) MNM
32.) MVP

I wiped out a few people from here and I'll say why:

MVP = Free Fort and then switch to a control deck, VERY good...big pain in the ass to deal with
John Morrison = won two pods in Indy last year and two-time nXt Format winner in Gen Con as well
Heath Slater = MASSIVELY underrated, but I can put him back....he'd be an odds-on top guy though
D-X = borderliner overpowered and maybe up for revision talk
"Movie Dwayne" = see D-X
Chyna Doll = yeah Dynamic sucks, but she gets all the nasty D-X guys' reversals....I'd say maybe sub him....HER....it? .....for Lex Luger
Benoit = has some nasty cards....but his real life actions may make people uncomfortable playing for or against him.... maybe make the Radicalz?

D-X and Chyna 2.0 would be up there too

I wouldn't include these:
John Morrison(Really good, recovers forever and gets free fortitude)
The Legacy(Their new backstage makes them pretty awesome)
Sheamus(no hybrids ever is pretty solid)
Chyna Doll(She is in process of being nerfed last I looked, since no one wants to deal with Chyna's press slam into Precision Haymaker 1st turn)
Dwayne/DX are both pretty good in general
Xavier Woods(A lot better than you would think, Banned + his ability+ NXT to WWE is a free 2 recovery anytime something is reversed)
