Fox's Fabulous Final Draft!
cbub_fantasy_teams_season_12_draft.jpg

It was 1997 when Fox started a site called the Comic Book Universe Battles in the wee early days of the Interwebs. 

Now, as we approach the year 2022, this site will have been online wasting people's time and bandwidth for 25 years! 

That's remarkable!   So much wasted time and bandwidth!

And so, we must celebrate this incredible achievement by wasting our time with...

 

CBUB Fantasy Teams: Season Twelve

BEST OF SLOTS!

 

But this time it's different!  Because we have Prizes!

Every participant who enters a team is eligible for this fantastic commemorative T-Shirt that tells the world that you wasted your time right here!

25_year_shirt_v1.jpg

The final design might differ, but you get the idea.

Also, the four players that make The Final Four of the Fantasy Teams Tournament will be eligible for an Amazon Gift Card prize. Wow!

This will be a LONG season running through Holidays Nov and Dec. More than 10 regular rounds, for sure.

And so, without further ado, let's look at the Slots to draft for. (No repeats from the previous Best of Slots).

 


The Rules:

Draft Open: 12 noon Pacific time, Sunday October 10th.

Draft Close: Oct. 19th at the earliest. Could be end of October, we'll see.

In case you need a refresher on the rules, here you go :

I've been thinking about a new Draft slot for some time now, and I actually got the inspiration for this from Ed Asner's recent passing. 

How about: the Intrepid Reporter? 

Who would go the farthest to get the scoop? Who would ask the most hard-hitting questions? Etc., etc. Bring on Lois Lane, April, O'Neal, J. Jonah Jameson, and yes, Lou Grant. 

Not sure how many notable journalists are available in pop culture, though.

Looks like there is quite a bit of coding I'll need to do in order to increase the number of Slots.  And I'll need to do some testing.

I can't provide any particular time / date when the draft will be open.  It opens when it opens.

Thanks!

Is this deemed final unless we can still save the CBUB?

This is just Fox's Final.  Celebrating 25 years of Foxyness.  We came, we saw, we got the T-Shirt!

Who knows what the future holds for CBUB: The Next Generation.

I have completed my updates and prep.  I will open the access to the draft tomorrow Sunday Oct. 10 at 12 Noon Pacific time.

So I would say Battlewiki is not ok for Superhuman lowest power gauges. They list Ainz Ool Gown there. And he kind of  is soloing massive field battles.

Ainz is listed Tier 9C "physically" and then crosses tiers upward with Magic.

He would be denied for the low power slot, absolutely.

The way to read the character on Battle Wiki is to see the highest tier the character crosses into.

See, Snake-Eyes is a perfect example of a Tier 9 pick.  He doesn't cross tiers upwards.

No. Tier 9 is Street Level.  Like Snake-Eyes from GI Joe, for example.

Go through the Tier Nine category and ensure the character is actually Street Level and doesn't cross tiers upwards.
