First of all, you need to have made the character you are submitting (although edits are allowed) (an exception can be made if you submit someone else's character with the permission of the original creator),Fixed.
You do realize that is still limiting right. (I guess according to your rule, Juan Carlos, and Reubenkee characters are off the table then since they are DEAD IRL, and even so I highly doubt people would care if you need permission to use there character for what a mugen show) I don't understand why you don't just allow any character from any author, submitted by anyone it seems unnecessarily limiting. (and you haven't given me nor orochi gill an inkling of a reason why)
I'm not using a bracket. As explained in the video, characters will compete in a randomly chosen bonus stage every episode, and at the end of an episode, the 2 characters who do the worst fight, and the loser of the fight is eliminated from the competition. The process is repeated for each episode until only 2 characters are left, and once that happens, the 2 remaining characters will fight in the Title Bout.
Though you'll still have to have a power of two for this to work, this is just simple math even with your elimination setup if you want to end up with one person.
As for that... You'll just have to wait and see.
Ok, if you really want people to invest in this... you'll have to tell them what they'll receive. I did this with my mugen tournament with the participants obviously winning the tournament but also their team became the champions where they had to defend their title as it. (which means they couldn't participate in the next tournament for what should be obvious reasons) Even though technically people where satisfied enough with just winning the thing.
Hey yall, I see that some of you are a little confused when it comes to the plot/setup. So I've updated and extended the idea to help everyone get a better grasp on it. The link to it is in my signature! So enjoy!
Ok first of all why didn't you just link it in this thread, and secondly the thread doesn't really address the problems we've brought up here.
Here's how I would set this up and you should most defiantly follow if you want this thing to well work at all
