That's why rules can set be setup to follow a specific debate form instead of just voting.

Even if you set down the rule that explanations need to be given, people will just come up with some silly way to justify their favorite character winning.

Never underestimate the dedication of fan(boys/girls).

one of the reason is cuz some people try to criticize characters that is part of the battle in which they hate.. so its indeed 1 sided. they try their best to downgrade the characters they dont like just to make the other higher. and im talking about power characters getting downgrade. 1 of those person is USSJ. his debates are 1 sided. drama will then start because others will try to argue with him and others...

also the battles are boring since alot/most info about naruto have been revealed already and people know the full potential of certain characters so when a battle topic is posted ppl will quickly vote a straight forward answer but this should not be applied to the battles because they are some that are highly impossible to predict the winner because of power characters clashing together and its difficult.

Try not to use ppl's usernames, I don't want any drama happening here. But I do understand what you all mean. I think an official battledome tournament would be nice, but I personally am not too familiar with how those work. Having an active poster on Battledome host it would be ideal.

Also, things get more interesting when people post battles between characters from animes other than naruto or bleach. We should post more varieties between topics to encourage this.

what are we aiming for here? More people posting in topics, or more topics made...?

In either event as it was mentioned earlier one of the main problems you are going to run into when using non Bleach or Naruto characters is low reply count because people are afraid to comment on people they know nothing about... I use to try and post links to a wiki page or something when using characters that are from lesser view manga to try and provide a easy source to get familiar with the characters... Although I didnt see much improvement... the only other thing I can think of which might help promote more variety... is a roster of more obvious characters from several different manga... In hopes it would spur the imagination when picking the people you would like to use in a topic... which can easily include small character Bio's or links to wiki pages...


Anyone else ever wonder exactly how many rare candies Naruto feed his Vulpix to get a Ninetails that goddamn big?...

as for suggestions, i think adding conditions to a battle makes it more interesting. like a location or prior knowledge or distance. have defaults so people dont have to type all that if they dont feel like it

1 - Lack of creativity and balance of the matchup
2 - People with replies like "Tobi" and nothing more. (Lazy bastards.. That's how socializing and debating is rare nowdays. Quick answers)
3 - People that want to boost their post count. (I have a serious suggestion to admins and mods. Turn the post count off for the battledome section also, and you'll see that some improvements will happen)
4 - Lack of logic and fanboyism.
5 - Same topics (I swear 'Itachi VS Minato' is one of them)

Another suggestion: Admins or mods should open a topic with BANNED matchups, which includes the most repeated matchups in battledome.

Happy battledoming

Well if anyone is interested I will be creating a battledome tournament next weekend, that will hopefully be succesful. Hopefully this will work out and won't be biased and will have good debating. I'm making sure have great matchups.

Glad to see something like this will be happening soon. I'll be watching it to see how it plays out to determine how to tweak my own Battledome "tournament" idea.
Good luck with it as well.

A couple tournaments have been thrown around since i've been frequenting the battledome... (which a pretty damn long time...)... and not many have been that successful... including my own attempt... but out of the few that had a bit of a following this one by Tupapi_the_best was the most successful i've seen... Ultimately with the format he went with his own inactively lead to its downfall (as suggested toward the end of the Original Topic)... but there might be something you can learn from it...

The Original Topic
The second round sign up(s)

I know each individual match up had its own topic created where people voted and weighed their opinions reguardless if they were part of the whole tounry or simply enjoy the deabte of the match up at hand, and im not sure is he had a separate sign topic for the first round as it appear most of the registration was done via the original topic... if it does exist i cant find it... it was hard enough to find the second round sign up back on page 180 something... Enaki_Renraku reboot is still has sticky status it appears... although that appears to have gone dead as well...

The only other Tourny type thing in the battle dome that might be worth looking into for ideas is the old VS Series by Mebflame that went down when I first got into debating here... and the first signs of that can be found just in the back like 5 pages of the battledome... it had a nice run, but used a different format from what Tupapi did a year later...

All good ideas, keep them coming if you have more. Things are currently being discussed, do not think your suggestions will be made in vain!

As many others have said, I'd say the reasons it's dead is a lack of well thought out, good fights (or, if there are many, they get drowned by ones like 'Baki vs. God' and aren't seen by many people) and people who get on, post a one word answer, and don't back it up at all, which makes it impossible to debate. The best suggestion I could think of:

Create a subsection within the Battledome for actual debates. Give it a moderator or two. Only allow the moderators to post new topics. If someone wants to post a topic, they must PM the moderator with the match-up (characters, area, restrictions, etc) and if the moderator thinks it is a good match-up, they post it in the subsection and give credit to the one who thought up the match-up. This would fix the 'stupid thread' problem. Then, to prevent the 'one-word, no back up answer' problem, turn off post count, and let the mods issue warnings to people who don't give at least some form of explanation for their answer.

I really think that would work out the best. It doesn't get rid of people who just want to see match-ups and post one-word answers, because this part of the Battledome will still be here since the above idea is just for a subsection within the Battledome. But, for people who want real debates, they can go to that subsection.
