About time we got a new topic up, hmm? Admin team is currently evaluating old mercs and deciding who to axe or keep. Post here if you want to participate in a few respect checks and contribute to the process!

He'd kinda need some specific stuff I feel

like uhh

pick an alignment and you get one of the alignment based superswords, pick a class and get appropriate spells/gear for it, then the 'ascension kit' stuff? No idea what his/her abilities would be though.

Wish - For yadda yadda amount of recharge, @ may stumble upon the bestest of Nethack boons, a single wish. He may use this to add any one item from the possible customization list to his writeup that isn't currently there already, regardless of whether it fits his chosen class.

Alternately, he may go the violent route and wish for a Scroll of Genocide. Choose one species of Merc (Human/Undead, etc). All Mercs of that classification will be instantly KOed on both teams. Including @, if he was dumb enough to Genocide his own species. You'd be surprised how often that happens.

Tempting, but in theory Kain is supposed to be roughly equal to the Double Dragons, so I wanna see if he matches up to them alone

speaking of, gonna do the writeup for the match soon, gimme a bit

Billy and Jimmy Lee have challenged Kain Highwind to a fight! Location of the fight: The Void - A barren featureless landscape with no cover or anything to speak of. There is no obvious source of light, but visibility is clear and the terrain otherwise has similar gravity, atmosphere, etc to Earth. Teams start 100m from each other.. Which side will win?

Guidelines

- The fight will occur in real-time (like an FMV sequence). Gameplay mechanics are less important than how the characters would function in a real-time environment.
- The members of each team are ideal teammates capable of a pre-selected plan of battle.
- "Broken" refers to a lot of things, including insta-death, auto-effects, a variety of status effects (e.g., Imp, Silence, Stop, *not* Poison), and revival. Unless stated otherwise, nobody has them, though do use your own discretion.
- There may be SPOILERS from all of the games the characters are from.

Rules for Voting

- Bold your votes (using bold HTML tags).
- You do not need to require justification for your vote, though the admins reserve the right to disqualify votes in the advent of obvious alt voting and other similar scenarios.
- Leaders cannot vote for their own teams (and players from the same pool may not vote as well), but they are free to argue their case.
- If you want to switch your votes simply bold the change; there's no need to delete your post, though you may if you wish.
- This match will end in 24 hours.
- The following conventions are in use for match topics: www.gamefaqs.com/boards/570224-mercs/75290480/878106427

Billy & Jimmy Lee are as they are seen in Double Dragon Neon, with the Balanced, Rage, Weapons Up, Desperation, and Absorb Mix Tape, and all Sosetsitsu with the exception of Song Snatch. They can high five at any time to split their total health pool evenly between them.

~VS~

Kain Highwind is as he appears in Final Fantasy IV. He has access to the Holy Lance and Wyvern Lance, as well as the Adamant Armor. He also has all of his moves from Dissidia NT, though that game's mechanics do not apply. He will be missing at the start of battle, but after thirty seconds, he will attempt to land his Jump attack on Billy and Jimmy Lee. The attack can be dodged, but he isn't visible until falling from the apex of his Jump after the thirty seconds are up. Only Kain's team knows he is missing and when he'll be back, but they do not know who his target is.

What are the Dragon's durability feats? Because I'm not sure the target survives the jump, and Kain easily wins a 1 v 1.

Toph and Scrooge somehow escape the biggest clusterfuck Cube. Birds, ED-209, Spartans and Detmer do not

So Toph is super well respected from the two matches she's been in

I figured she would be tbh, but she's also very terrain dependent

put her on Bubbly Clouds and she's fucked

I think Scrooge got way too much credit there though

Big thing for me is taking everyone who has Smash as a base and giving them an actual game to base themselves off of. And then apply the Smash moveset to it.

Or just say "Master Hand is the size of a giant hand. He is not a literal glove, just a metaphorical one."

Falcon still sux though.

Yeah, your video was the horribles. You should have grabbed something more like this.

Wouldn't have really changed my thoughts on the fight though, they are quite plodding on foot speed, and I still would be humored enough to try to argue the Dragon armor and weapons would be extremely effective against them, because they are the double dragons.

And there was no actual arguments done, where the effort, knowledge, and debate skills can change how the fight can go, not to even mention location. Location can completely wreck a fight that should be a free victory for one team. I know in Tom's merc brawl, Neptune got huge value off of her entrance to Celestia map, where it heavily favored long range. There was also the Waterball (easiest kill on vampires ever) and some votes where a team that should have won lost because of picking the absolute worst location for the job.

the funny part is I had very little terrain respect until waterballing everybody
