The rules: This is one of four threads containing matches. Due to the holiday, these threads will be in use for 9 days. Days 1-4 (Mar 12 - Mar 15) are strictly setup time for owners to plead their cases, tell us their teams strategies, breakdown the match ups, and do whatever else they can/want to do to try and convince you that their team would pull out a victory. Please, let the owners do this on their own with no help. On Day 5 (Mar 16) I will post and tell everyone that voting may begin. Any votes cast before I open voting will not count. Look over the matchups and read the strategies, and take into consideration how in-character each character is. Afterwards, use your best judgment to decide who you think has the best chance to win the match. (Note: The length of a writeup the discretion of the owner. Do not punish owners just for having a shorter writeup.) To vote, post the team names you think will prevail in each match. Remember to vote for all matches or your vote will not count! The teams with the highest vote total at the end of the 9th day (Mar 20) will get a W while the other will get an L. (Equal votes will result in a tie.)
