MVG, you didn't count peoples' votes for themselves, which would have been fine except for the fact that there's more than one place being voted on, meaning your opinion still matters in your own rankings.

So if I read this right, me being in position 17 would be eligible to fight the person in the #10 spot or beneath? And if we go by how Candy positioned things that would mean I could issue a challenge to Psibat? (I counted from Markus down) And lets say if I win would that automatically put me in his number ten spot? Then from there on I would have to defeat the next person above me till I get to the number 1 spot. Correct me if I don't seem to be following on track here. So its like this but simpler.
Patience and practice are the greatest talents you'll ever have.[/size]
Keep in mind I did this off the way Candy had placed things so the listing is mainly based around his..list.
I think the problem is having multiple brawlers on one position. So like Grent suggested earlier why not just have a multi-way combat battle? Like Number 15, 14, and 13, fighting to occupy number 10 have a go. They could do a roundabout where each person gets a turn but the defender has to counter attack. Or a free for all where you could also try to take out the opposition as well as the lead number you're trying to fight for.
The winner is determined by majority vote so if 15 gets majority he moves up to position 10. Pos 14 moves to 15, 13 to 14, and 10 moves to position 12. Cause position 11 hasn't issued a challenge he will remain at his current position.
Oh also there can only be 17 positions total since that is the total amount of people who wanted to be in the battle/brawler rankings. Unless I'm wrong then go ahead and question me on this and I'll try to give an answer. Really though these are just ideas to simplify things.
If there is still anything wrong (And I know there is) with how I'm trying to place things speak now, or forever hold your peace.
First of all, Nitro, I'll probably arrange these in a bbcode table so that we won't have to edit an image every time. Second, pretty much only through #11 is gonna be relevant, so I doubt anyone below that would even be listed. Hell, I might not even list them. Third, if someone is knocked down from #10, he (or she I guess) gets moved down to #11, replacing the old #11.
I thought there was no point in listing anyone below 10, because everyone below 10 is automatically in rank 11, and get into the ranks by challenging the rank 10. So, dozens of people could all fit into rank 11 because being in rank 11 means you're basically not in the ranks at all, like this:
Even with the tiebreaker votes, Gunny vs McJ vs MVG was super close. The difference between Gunny and MVG was 2 points.
If you're curious how I tallied, DK vs Balto was a straight vote (duh), but in the three-way ties, I gave 2 points for a vote for first (among the three), 1 point for a second-place vote, and 0 for a third-place vote.
So, moving on. I was thinking that challenges would be first-come, first-serve, but if someone challenges someone and then is challenged by someone else within a certain amount of time (like an hour or two), we would encourage a three-way match.
For default match rules, I was thinking similar to tourney style:
4-week standard brawling, with a 1 week time limit on individual pics (i.e. you have a week at most to respond to your opponent's picture)
The defender chooses a battleground.
The challenger posts the first picture, which consists of the challenger's character busting up a ton of the defender's minions, and culminates in the challenger coming face-to-face with the defender.
After the 4 weeks (or other agreed upon time limit) is up, everyone votes on who the winner should be.
The fighters can agree to change the rules to suit their tastes, but if they can't agree, rules default to this set.
For multi-way battles, we could do something along the same lines, except have the match go on for six weeks, have one-week thread posting rules, and have one person eliminated at the three-week mark. Input?
