We are human. After all.

In the red corner: Androc, as Thomas Bangalter!

In the blue corner: Tollymain, as Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo!



This game will be a match between two iterations of Endrbyt, and will use special actions. We can do this two ways:
  • Blind Build: Both players will select their Endr-kit in secret. I will reveal in the thread, then players will select starting discards and finisher.
  • Draft: Using a modified Rochester draft, players will draft a functional fighter from one copy of Endrbyt, one set of standard bases, and one set of beta bases.
I'll let the participants hash out how they want to handle this. (In the event of a disagreement, we will default to blind builds.)


Players will blind-build their Endrbyts, which will be revealed before discards and finishers are chosen.




















Heaven or Hell? LET'S ROCK!

See, my guess was a Tanis mirror. I'm... not sure if this is better or worse.

I would probably want to know more about the draft mechanics before settling on a choice, but my gut feeling is that blind build presents less chance to get screwed over pre-game.

e: Though on further reflection, being all cutthroat during draft could be fun in itself.

Argh. I've noticed some flaws in my planned drafting rules. I'm afraid the draft is off. We'll be doing blind builds.

Setup is complete! Players, submit your pairs. Tolly, include ante.

WOAH EVERYBODY HOLD THE PHONE


There's an error on Endrbyt's sheet here. Just checked my own physical copy.

Acquisition Mode should only give Endrbyt 2 energy tokens to start.

Players, please reevaluate your openings with this information, and either confirm your current move or submit a new one. Tolly, if you want to switch modes in light of this, we can call a mulligan and go back to building.

Terribly sorry.

EDIT: OP now corrected.

Pairs are in, and technically ante should go back and forth, which I forgot to do in prior beats because my brain has been jellofied by real life poo poo.

But both of you shot me pass antes, so I'm just gonna go with it.
