This thread is apart of a larger tournament between six ComicVine users. You can read the other debates here:
The debate follows all formal and informal policies of Lucas Licensing as of September 2012, including the internal continuity rankings of the Holocron. In addition:
- Feats take precedent over directly and indisputedly contradicted statements.
- Quotes are binding and have no expiration date unless directly or subtextually contradicted. For the latter, such a case must be made within the debate itself.
- All letter or number statistics ascribed to characters from C-Canon sources, including role-playing games and trading cards, are banned.
- A novelization takes precedent over a video game in any places of contradiction.
Each post can take a maximum of 72 hours to respond. Please contact me if you are unable to fulfill the requirement.
Tentatively, there will be three posts per side. The first post, not including response or sourcing quotes, will have a maximum of 3,750 original characters, the second 7,500, the third 11,250, the fourth 14,750. Each debater will have a 2,500 finisher.
The combatants will fight in-character and with morals on, but beyond that they will not hold back and are ready to kill. They start diagonal from each other at 42 meters away in an indestructible 30 meters by 30 meter arena in the grass plains of Lothal.
There will be both a popular vote that will be tallied and converted into 40% of the overall vote. A panel of three "official" judges will also vote and be worth 60% of the overall vote. The winner has the higher total percentage out of 100 possible points.
