Will we have the slot info before that Saturday? I'd love to be able to pick my team a couple of days in advance and not be searching for them that day.

SLOT Three: Humanoid and self-contained (non-distributed) robot, autonomous machine, self-aware computer or cyborg.

 

I don't quite understand what you mean by "self-contained (non-distributed). Also, what is the max power level/rating for this category?

Sure, as an example SKY-NET is distributed.  That is, it exists in many computer systems like the internet.  Whereas one of SKY-NET's T-1000 Terminator Robots is not distributed - it is a self contained cyborg entity.

 

The Red Queen, from Resident Evil 1 I think - the Umbrella Corp hologram, is also distributed.

 

Power level / rating hasn't been set.  However Planet Destroying will be out.  Sorry Unicron.

No not distributed for the purposes of a CBUB match because she was depicted as an autonomous humanoid being.

SKY-NET has never been depicted strictly as a defeatable humanoid character. SKY-NET is everywhere and in everything. It is essentially an abstract being and that just doesn't fit the category.

"The Matrix" itself as a character is another one which will not fly. The Red Queen from Resident Evil, Joshua from War Games ... you get the idea.

The Holographic Doctor from Star Trek Voyager could be a CBUB Season contender because he also was shown to be a roaming self contained entity when using the portable holographic projector.

Im assuming Fox is letting me help judge characters allowed for teams. He asked me to post my suggestions to him for all to see for the upcoming season 2. So to help clarify some...

As far as slot 3, 4, and 5 for season two goes...

Spiderman as an example as the LIMIT for slot 4

 BELOW superman and thor level for slot 5

around superman and thor level (no cosmics) for slot 6

I think I will give season 2 a try. I like the new CBUB.

Are there power limits for spots 1 and 3?

I really like that the slots are getting into some better specifics regarding character powers.

 

SLOT Three: Processin' the team's odds

A Humanoid robot, autonomous machine, self-aware computer or cyborg of up to average power.  Character must mobile and targetable - Not a stationary computer.

Examples: IG-88, Terminator Robots, Data (Star Trek), Cyborg Friday the 13th Jason (IN SPACE! lol), Machine Man, single lower powered Transformers (like Bumble-bee), Deathlok

 

Two things about slot 3. First, isn't Bumlebee way more powerful than anyone else listed there? He may not be a good example of a low powered robot. Second, are machines that infect other machines allowed? I'd hate to see a character chosen who wins every match with "Character A controls Character B's mechanical brain and forces it to self-destruct lawlz." Would get annoying.
