Lightbulb Coming January 10: The Beast Wars 25th Anniversary Dream Combat Tournament

I've never held anything like this on Cybertron.ca before, though I've done something similar in older forums like Autobot.net (how's that for a throwback?). With this year being BW's 25th anniversary, I thought I'd introduce a fun game in here, which looks like it may last a few months. You've probably seen other fan sites and communities hold "fantasy tournaments" pitting pop culture characters in dream matches and determining an ultimate winner. This will be the same idea, starting this Sunday.

24 Beast Wars characters - 12 Maximals and 12 Predacons - will be randomly drawn into one-on-one matches in a single-elimination tournament bracket. A poll thread will be opened periodically for members to vote for a winner in each match. The selected combatants are as follows:


Maximals:
Optimus Primal (Transmetal)
Rhinox
Rattrap (Transmetal)
Dinobot
Cheetor (Transmetal)
Tigatron
Airazor
Silverbolt
Depth Charge
Wolfang
Grimlock
Onyx Primal

Predacons:
Megatron (Transmetal)
Scorponok
Tarantulas (Transmetal)
Terrorsaur
Waspinator
Blackarachnia
Inferno
Quickstrike
Rampage
Transmetal 2 Dinobot
Ravage
Antagony


Once all matches are completed, the character winning the Tournament will go on to face a mystery 25th combatant - hey, it is the 25th anniversary, after all - whose identity will be kept secret until that bonus round.

Due to the number of combatants selected, 16 characters will be in eight Round 1 matches; the remaining eight will have a bye in that round, and wait in Round 2 for the opening-round winners to advance. Here's the blank bracket showing the arrangement:




Due to the nature of the poll feature, a separate thread will be opened for each one-on-one match. Here's the anticipated schedule for the full tournament (times of day are approximate, barring real-life circumstances getting in the way):


Round 1: Jan 10 to Feb 6 - 2 matches a week for 4 weeks; each match poll will open on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, lasting 3 days

Round 2: Feb 7 - Mar 6 - 2 matches a week for 4 weeks; each match poll will open on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, lasting 3 days

Quarterfinals: Mar 7 - 20 - 2 matches a week for 2 weeks; each match poll will open on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, lasting 3 days

Semifinals: Mar 21 - Apr 3 - 1 match a week for 2 weeks; each match poll will open on Sunday afternoons, lasting 6 days

Tournament Final: Apr 4 - 10 - 1 match only this week; match poll will open on Sunday afternoon, lasting 6 days

Bonus Round: Apr 11 - 17 - 1 match only this week; match poll will open on Sunday afternoon, lasting 6 days


Watch for the bracket to be updated by this weekend with the names inserted, and watch for the first match poll to open this Sunday!


ADDENDUM: Match pairings have been drawn as shown in the image below. A new thread for the first match's poll - the first of eight Round 1 matches - will open this Sunday, so be ready!

This reminds me of the Hurt & Heal threads on GameFAQs somewhat (yes, I lurk there).

Hoping Dinobot doesn't have to fight himself or something lopsided. Looks like it'll be fun!

Interesting how Onyx fights Antagony, as they're the only non-retail toys or show characters here.

Re: Coming January 10: The Beast Wars 25th Anniversary Dream Combat Tournament

Hmm, very curious who this mystery combatant will be!

I'm gonna make a guess list, if allowed.
Firstly, since this tournament is more pre-BeastMachines show-based, I'll list obscure characters from the show.

-CyberBee
-Starscream
-The Vok!
-Snow Stalker
-The Tripedicus council of red guys
-G1 Megatron from the disk (badly voiced, but not as bad as Stascream)
-Transmutate

You could also go with classic BW toy characters, and really surprise us with the McBeastWars toys!

Panther
Rhino
Beetle (known in my family as The Geo-Spider! )
Manta Ray
Under-3 ( )

Yeah, just how the luck of the draw turned out.

Sure, guessing is perfectly fine; might be as much fun as he Tournament itself! Of course, to know who it is for sure, ya still gotta wait until that Bonus Round rolls around....

And speaking of the Tournament, I've got another match to set up, so as they once said in TV land, stay tuned!
