Arena Games Season 2-Draft Thread

Recommended Posts

Let's get this show on the road! Here are the round themes and points again for reference.
 


BONUS POINTS
Drafting characters will earn you bonus points depending upon whom you select. Each round will have a theme with special bonus point criteria. Here are the universal criteria and their values. They are cumulative.

  • 3 bonus points if the pick is selected within 24 hours
  • 3 bonus point if character is a non-speaking animal
  • 3 bonus points if the character has never died*
  • 1 bonus point if the character chosen is female
  • 1 bonus point if the character chosen is non-white (does not apply to non-humans)

*Death, in this case, means for a year or more of published comics.
 
Your pick will get one of the following, if applicable. These will not apply to characters with fewer than four appearances.

  • 3 bonus point if the character has never starred in a TEAM title
  • 4 bonus points if the character has never starred in their own solo ONGOING title or MINISERIES
  • 5 bonus points if the character has never starred in own solo ONGOING title or MINISERIES or TEAM title

THE DRAFT ROUNDS
Each round has a special them and/or rules, as well as unique ways to earn bonus points. Here is what you're looking at for the selection rounds.
 
Completed rounds spoiled for space


Round 1 - Open / Expansion
This round is for those without keepers. New teams go first to get caught up.

  • 3 points if you give your team a name
  • 1 point if I like you

Round 2 – Who da Man?
Your character must have been created by Stan Lee.

  • 2 point if the co-creator was not Kirby or Ditko
  • 2 points if character was created before 1961
  • 2 points if character is non-Marvel

Round 3 – I Was Born This Way
These characters were born with their superhuman abilities. Aliens with superhuman abilities count. Artificial life-forms are not allowed—created is not the same as being born.

  • 2 bonus points if the character is otherwise human (mutant or meta)
  • 1 point if the character had their powers from birth
  • 1 point if the character's powers are dangerous to them or their environment

Round 4 – Playing Both Sides
Characters must have been both a hero and a villain at some point during their careers. Not included are mind controlled characters or misunderstandings.

  • 2 bonus points for characters that started as heroes  
  • 2 bonus point if the character is currently a criminal

 
Round 5 - Heavy Equipment
Character's primary power is sourced from a focus, including (but not exclusive to) standard firearms and martial arts weapons.

  • 2 bonus points if character did not create focus
  • 3 bonus points if the focus is not unique

 

Round 6 – The Color of Victory
Characters must have a code-name with a color in it.

  • 1 bonus point if the color is not green
  • 3 bonus points if the color is also not red, blue, black, or white
  • 2 bonus point if the character was created after 1986

 

Round 7 – Independence Day
Characters must have originally been published by a company other than DC or Marvel. (DC and Marvel swallowed up several smaller publishers, so they may be published by one of those currently.)

  • 2 bonus points if the character appeared in more than one independent title
  • 2 bonus points if the character was in a movie or TV show
  • 5 bonus points if they're not published by Image.

Round 8 – Open Finale
Round out your team with a free selection.

  • 2 bonus points if the character was created before 1956 or after 1986 
  • 2 points if the character has a code-name and a costume

 


 
 
Since we have a catch-up round, this is the draft order for round one only!

  • Lady Pariah
  • CaptnStrawberry
  • Bazza
  • Steve
  • bigbywolfe

Beginning in round 2, (and every even round) we go in this order:

  • bigbywolfe
  • Steve
  • Bazza
  • CaptnStrawberry
  • Lady Pariah
  • SKJAM!
  • Enforcer84
  • The Rose
  • Psybolt
  • Pariah
  • BlueCloud2k2
  • Hermit

Every odd numbered round from round 3 on is in reverse order.
 
We are ready to go with round 1, so Lady Pariah is up!

Sorry it took so long to get started.  Was at a birthday celebration for yours truly so I just saw the post.  Selection is done and I've messaged next in line.  Looking foward to joining in on the fun!  Thanks for letting me hop on board at the last minute.

 

Happy Arena Games.  And may the odds be ever in my favor.  :winkgrin:

First pick:  Thor

 

 

 

Family tradition? 

All right, for this round's legacy pick, the Universals select Dane Whitman, the Avenger known as the Black Knight!

 

 

I'm going to guess this is the first official sniped draft pick of the Arena Games.

 

Are you checking my browser history, or are we just on the same wavelength. ?

 

Did Pariah give you my password to my browser history?

If by "family tradition" you mean winning, then yes, it is. lol.  Did I snipe you?  Sorry about that! Kind of. :whistle:

Family tradition meaning that last time, Pariah sniped my pick, and this time, you did. I'm sensing a trend...

Well, so far this is a big-guns round, so I will go with the ultimate strong, silent type:

 

Black Bolt!

Tentative Team Name: The Knights Who Say Nietzsche

I have been generally well-liked by the friendly Hero Games community (less so in real life, but who cares about that?!)

 

PM being sent to Bazza.

It simply means that we all, the three of us, have exquisite taste in characters.  :king:

I have to agree with Pariah...exquisite taste. He's living proof of that...he chose me, didn't he!?! :)
