Season two has been pretty exciting (in my humble opinion) and as we get close to the end of the Individual Rounds there are still a lot of teams that look like they could get into the top slots.  Should be interesting.

 

This thread, is to throw out ideas for slots in season three.  Got any?  Throw in a suggestion.

 

Also, if there is any problems you see coming out of Seasons One and Two (the Draft itself, matches, slots, etc) that we might could address in Season Three, please throw that out as well. 

 

Thanks!

Remind me, what slots were used in both seasons? I'd like to be sure. But I do suggest magic users probably?

Well first in Season 3 is it still single battles or teams?

Magic Users seem reasonable.

 

It's a tricky thing though.  Magic-users come in many power levels.  If there are 40-something teams and you say just "Magic Users" in general, then a few teams are going to have characters which will absolutely decimate the field.  Some kind of qualifier on the slot helps.

I liked the idea of the kung fu spot, but I think there was a problem with superpowered characters being in the spot. Became less skill versus skill and more about punching people to the moon.

Every season will have X number of individual rounds.  In Season Two the individual rounds are almost over.  The four Players which have the most wins go to the Team Rounds.  There are two Team Rounds.  That's whats in the FAQ, anyways.

Okay, let's say someone has to be under certain power levels, how about that?

Some slot ideas for Season 3:

 

1. Sci Fi Characters Slot

2. Video Game Characters Slot

3. Sword Wielders Slot (Example would be a Aragorn or Samurai)

4. Characters from Fiction Slot (Must come from a novel first)

5. Vechicle Slot (Car battles. Think twisted metal type battles or car chases. )

6. Spaceship Slot 

7. Soldier Slot (Must be a soldier currently and no super-humans. No peak humans either.)

How about these as well (besides nominating the above, incidentally; sword wielders came to my mind as well):

Archers

Gunslingers

Kaiju

Barefoot Funny Animal

Pacifist

We need to keep some slots that aren't straight up fights. While the straight up brawls are the heart of this whole thing, the humor and CSI matches helped to keep things interesting.

That would work, how about a delivery scenario?

Sorry for the double post but I have to ask, what can be done for anyone who doesn't get to the draft on time?

I think having an entire alien race as a slot would be cool. Like The Borg, Predators, so on and so forth.

For the spy/mercenary slot, I would like to suggest for a battle arena 'take out the rival agent' to give them a prep time fight.

Also, maybe a leadership slot. There are plenty of team leaders in the database and the battle arenas could be stuff like; seek and destroy missions, (various targets, including the other character, the Death Star, Doctor Doom and other big baddies) Commanding armies (World War II, Iraq and Afganastan, The Empire from Star Wars, and other things that require leadership and stragegy rather than just punching somebody)

I thought of some Slots.

 

Slot: Bounty Hunters and Assassins

For this slot, have characters that are bounty hunters, assassins, or just hunters, and have them catch or kill a character like Doctor Doom, Riddick, Kingpin, Doctor Who, Cobra Commander, etc.

 

Slot: Giant Robot Battle

This slot is for characters that are Giant Robots or a person that can pilot a Giant Robot.

 

Slot: Spaceship Battle

This slot is for characters that are Spaceships.

 

Slot: Creatures as Weapons

For this slot, have characters that can use creatures as weapons. This would work for characters from shows like Pokemon, Digimon, and Bakugan.

 

 

I also thought of some Battle Terrains.

 

Xenomorph Hive: Characters fight each other inside a Hive full of Xenomorphs.

 

Mall of Zombies: Characters fight each other inside a Mall full of Zombies.

 

The Kraken: Characters fight each other on a ship as well as fighting a Giant Squid.

 

Fighting on a Plane: Characters fight each other inside an airplane.

I personally like these ideas

What ever the slots decided on, we need to be more specific in the descriptions on who to pick.  I know its been a work in progress but it just needs a little more refining to make it relatively even for everyone.

Well done selections. Again, I refer to my delivery scenario like say can anyone deliver a pizza in under 30 minutes despite dangerous obstacles?

I like the idea of space ships or vehicle matches, sometimes it could be a battle and sometime it could be a race or something. I also like the idea of Race/army. Beast/animal battles would be cool too. 

 

We definently need power levels for each slot and maybe a backup plan for someone who makes it in by mistake. Maybe letting the 3 judges vote on if someone is overpowered or against the idea of the slot. If character did get excepted by mistake then said character could be suspended/forced benched.

Edit: if you you wanted to top the oh shit button, we could go full on god slot. No limits at all.
