    Ultimate Dark Souls Forum Tournament

    Post by LunarFog on Thu Jan 17, 2013 1:32 am

    My last topic gave me a nice idea: I'm going to make a tournament that pits all of the humanoid characters against each other.

    RULES
    1.)The tournament will take place one round at a time, each round lasting a week.

    2.) Characters will be pitted against each other at random.

    3.)The main thread will be created this weekend, with a link to a sub-thread made for the battle that week.

    4.)Decisions should be based on lore, and in-game stats.

    4a.) If the decisions are based in-game play assume that the characters in question are both level 100 with only equipment that they either use in-game, or are said to have created(for example, Havel doesn't use "Great Magic Barrier" when you fight him, but the description of the spell itself states that he could.

    4b.) Characters are equal in level which means that the only advantages or disadvantages in a fight from an in-game stat-wise viewpoint will come from equipment and spells.


    5.) Assume that all battles are held in the Ruins in the Battle of Stoicism. If you're unfamiliar with the DLC, imagine an arena that has a fair amount of walls to where someone would be able to use the environment to gain a slight advantage(In the cases of people like Ciaran and Shiva's Bodyguard)

    6.) Assume all characters fight at the peak of their power within the time of the game.(Artorias is obviously not at his peak when you fight him, but that's the condition you will assume he is in during the tournament)

    7.) Any other rules I should add?



    ROSTER
    If you suggest I add or remove anyone, then please leave a comment.

    You might want to add whether or not we can use rings on our cosplaying builds. I'm sure quite a few of us could make a good cosplay build that has fastrolling because of Havel's ring.

    This isn't going to be gameplay. It's a tournament on the forums, similar to the havel vs Tarkus armwrestle thread.
