YOU: What about side cards?
US: Sigh… We couldn’t stop RobbieRobTown if we tried.
-The two day prep, fight in an arena still applies.
-No outside interference from people who are NOT on your team. Ie: No stunts from Franklin and Professor X. Your team is your team and that’s who you’ve got.
-Heroes with Multiple team affiliations can only fight for 1 team
- Only 5 members max per team. Current lineups are based on our choices, as we are awesome.
-Remember, this speculation is based on the TEAM MEMBERS we have assembled. Yes, the results would have been very different if Professor X was on the Team, or Green Lantern, or Martian Manhunter or whomever. But they aren’t, so the results are based on who we’ve got. However, having said that…
-You have 1 week before the first round starts, so argue passionately and intelligently about why so and so should be on a particular team and we MAY do a few substitutions. However, once the tournament starts, it’s locked in.
So there it is. Let’s keep it clean (ish) and have fun out there!
