Code:
RULES/STIPULATIONS/REGULATIONS
-Each contestant has 4 draft picks -He must pick 1 Super-Heavyweight, 1 Heavyweight and 1 Light-Heavyweight. He must also pick one reserve from ANY weight class. Animals picked must be alive today -Contestants will fight each other 3 v 3 -A contestant MUST have all 3 weight classes in a fight -The reserve can be from any weight class and it's purpose is stylistic match ups.... Example: If the fight is in a forest, one might swap their grizzly bear for their Gorilla reserve because it is better suited to fighting in that environment -There will be 3 rounds of matchups. The first round there are 4 fights with 8 contestants. The 2nd round is 2 fights with 4 contestants. Then the 3rd and final round, the last two standing fight it off to crown the winner -The round 1 and 2 matchups will be completely random -The environments in each matchup will be completely random -The 3 judges will give their interpretation on the fight, and who they think is the winner. 3 judges so whoever has the majority vote is deemed winner The Environments: African Savanna Tropical Rainforest Saharan Desert Kilimanjaro Snow Peak NOTE: No humans

Matchup Format:
- 3v3 (1 SHW, 1 HW, 1 LHW)
- 1 substitute
- You must always have ALL 3 weight classes in the matchup, irrelevant of substitute activity
- Strategy driven fight; meaning the animals will fight together in a cohesive unit, regardless of animal temperament/aggressiveness
- Obviously, the team that is left standing, wins. This 3v3 is a fight to the death
- There are 8 contestants, meaning 3 rounds of matchups to crown the champion
- First round is 4 matchups
- Second round is 2 matchups
- Third round is the championship matchup
- The matchups in the first two rounds are RANDOM
- The environments for the matchups in all 3 rounds are RANDOM
- The contestants in a matchup will be given a paragraph or 100 or so words to explain why their team will win the matchup, and how it will happen EG- Strategically how they will win. This first paragraph must be sent to the Arbitrator (Me) and must not be shown to your opponent.
- The Arbitrator (Me) will then post both contestants paragraphs
- The contestants will then be allowed another paragraph to counter their opponent's original paragraph argument
- The counter arguments will be sent to the Arbitrator (Me) and I will post both of them at the same time
- The Judges will then read the arguments and the counter arguments, and then they will come to a decision on who is the victor
- Obviously the arguments/counter arguments are not the only thing that determines the Judges decision. Their personal opinion is the main factor, including their knowledge on animals
- Whoever gets the majority vote from the judges, is declared the victor

ENVIRONMENT 1 - African Savanna

Characteristics: Flat plain with little to no trees. Ground is mostly shrubs and areas of medium to long grass. Lots of space, no mobility hindrance for large animals

ENVIRONMENT 2 - Tropical Rainforest

Characteristics:Unpredictable, uneven, small confined space. A lot of tall trees. Dense vegetation. An environment that is definitely suited to the smaller, more mobile animals. Larger animals will find the environment constricting of mobility. Areas of water/small to moderate water bodies.

ENVIRONMENT 3 - Saharan Sand Desert

Characteristics:Sandy environment floor consisting of huge dunes and peaks and waves. Also features areas of flat sand plains. Heavier animals will find that their mobility and movement is much slower due to the sand and being weighed down. Lighter animals will manage much better movement wise.

ENVIRONMENT 4 - Kilimanjaro Snow Peak

Characteristics: A flat snowy mountain peak. Elevation: 5,895 m. Snow slightly slows down heavier animals. Flat peak has steep drop offs all around it. Steep drop offs create a limited space.

I have made a weight class list of about 50 animals for a rough guide. Most of the best picks are on the list... Contestants can pick any animal alive today though.

Judge based on what?
How cool the animal is? How strong it is?

Fight to death. The 3 animals are strategically working together. The judges are experienced animal fight hypotheticists.

Once we have 8 contestants I will use a randomizer MULTIPLE times and post the results then we can average out the lottery placing to avoid potential rigging on my behalf.
