Battle of Champions 2 [HH]

...this time with more champions!

First a look at the battlefield. It's some ruins from an old fortress or some such.
Image

This time around I put the champions into teams for the early rounds since the battlefield was a little small for the number of players.
Team 1: Leonidas, Han Solo, Waldo, and Prince of Persia
Image

Team 2: Barbosa, Clint Eastwood, Wesley, and Gandalf
Image

Team 3: Gordan Freeman, Legolas, and James Bond
Image

Team 4: Jack Sparrow, Iron Man, Indiana Jones
Image

Team 5: Gnome, Cyclops, Chell
Image

Team 1 start position
Image

Team 2 start position
Image

Team 3 start position
Image

Team 4 start position
Image

Team 5 start position
Image

Overview with players in place.
Image

Luke ran up the stairs and got onto the wall
Image

Cyclops ran up the slope and got on top of the wall as well.
Image

Waldo ran up the stairs as well.
Image

Wesley jumped up onto the wall.
Image

Where he checked the chest...
Image

...And he found some armor!
Image

Gandalf tried to animate the practice dummy, but only made it spin.
Image

So he got ready to defend himself from attacks.
Image

Jack Sparrow ran into the throne room.
Image

Clint Eastwood opened a chest...
Image

...and it blew up in his face!
Image

The Gnome found a new sword...
Image

He tried it out on the spider, but it disintegrated.
Image

Iron Man flew up onto the wall and took a shot at Luke, which got blocked.
Image

Legolas started up the stairs…
Image

…and took a shot at Jack, wounding him.
Image

Then he used his elf abilities to become invisible.
Image

Leonidas followed Waldo, still a little bitter about being killed by him last game, and shouted, “THIS IS SPARTA!!”
Image

Chell used her portals to launch herself up onto the walls.
Image

She took a shot at Wesley, but missed.
Image

Barbosa threw his sword at Iron Man…
Image

Iron Man caught the sword and dropped it, with the appropriate amount of disdain for such simple weapons.
Image

So Barbosa went to fetch his sword.
Image

Gordon Freeman pulled out a shotgun from his inventory.
Image

He shot at Han Solo, but missed.
Image

Indy went over to lend Jack some help.
Image

James Bond started to jump up onto the wall.
Image

He got his arms on the ledge…
Image

But he couldn’t hang on like Bonn-o-Tron.
Image

Prince of Persia took off running toward Clint Eastwood.
Image

Overview after round 1. Somehow I lost the picture for Han Solo’s turn, he basically ran to the spot where Gordon shot at him.
Image

Luke attacked Iron Man, but failed to hurt him
Image

Wesley went after the Prince, but his landing was a little rough, and his attack was blocked.
Image

Han shot Gordon! Revenge is sweet!
Image

Chell shot a portal under Wesley, dropping him over by the Gnome.
Image

She then tried to drop a cube on him, but Wesley caught it.
Image

And threw it back in her face, knocking her from the wall and wounding her.
Image

Cyclops removed his visor and blasted at Wesley, but missed.
Image

Clint shot at Chell and missed.
Image

Iron Man took two shots at Luke. One was blocked, one was a hit.
Image

Waldo ran along the wall towards James Bond
Image

Jack retrieved Barbosa’s sword.
Image

Legolas checked a chest…
Image

He found a medkit!
Image

Then he shot at Indy
Image

Indy took a hit, Legolas took cover
Image

Gandalf checked a chest…
Image

He also found a medkit! Those things are popular!
Image

Then he called down lightning upon Iron Man, frying him a little.
Image

The Gnome tried attacking Wesley, but was blocked by Wesley’s armor.
Image

Indy tried whipping Legolas, but missed.
Image

So he whipped the arch and did a swinging kick, only to be blocked.
Image

Gordon pulled out a Gauss gun, since the shotgun didn’t seem to work.
Image

It had a malfunction, but Gordon was unhurt.
Image

Barbosa tried to get his monkey, Jack, to retrieve his sword, but the monkey had other plans.
Image

So Barbosa wrestled for sword himself, and won.
Image

Leonidas continued to follow Waldo, shouting “Revenge shall be mine!” He was really unnerving the guy playing Waldo.
Image

Bond moved forward, shot at Gandalf, and missed.
Image

This Prince of Persia attacked Chell, who rolled out of the way.
Image

Overview after round 2
Image

Legolas shot at Iron Man, but the arrow plinked off his armor.
Image

Han finished off Gordon Freeman, for the first fatality of the match.
Image

Han then took cover behind the column
Image

Chell shot a portal under the Prince
Image

And then another portal under Clint Eastwood
Image

She tried to make a pile-up on top of Wesley. The Prince fell and was hurt, but Eastwood landed on the wall.
Image

Eastwood shot at Jack, but missed.
Image

Iron Man had a systems failure and couldn’t attack.
Image

Wesley attacked the Gnome, wounding him
Image

He tried to jump up the wall after Cyclops, but slipped and fell.
Image

Jack attacked Barbosa but was blocked.
Image

Waldo had enough of Leonidas and attacked him, but he missed.
Image

And his momentum carried him off the wall
Image

Leonidas hopped down, ignored Waldo, and tried to attack James Bond, but he was out of range.
Image

The Gnome attacked Wesley, but dropped his saw. So he summoned a lawn jockey to help him, but the jockey stubbed his toe on Wesley’s armor.
Image

Gandalf checked another box and found some dynamite!
Image

He tried to whack Jack, but missed.
Image

Luke finally got a good swing on Iron Man and finished him off.
Image

Cyclops drilled the Prince with a blast, finishing him off as well.
Image

Indy whipped at Legolas, relieving him of his bow.
Image

Then he whipped again, wounding Legolas
Image

Bond climbed up next to Legolas and shot at Indy, but missed
Image

Barbosa attacked and killed Jack!
Image

Overview after the 3rd round
Image

Gandalf attacked Indy but missed
Image

Legolas jumped down, retrieved his bow, and used his medkit
Image

But Cyclops blasted him, re-wounding him
Image

Han shot Wesley and wounded him.
Image

And then he found some armor.
Image

Indy curb stomped Legolas finishing him off.
Image

Then he used his whip to steal Bond’s gun
Image

Waldo also tried to attack Wesley, but missed
Image

Wesley got up and finished off the Gnome.
Image

Then he took the Gnome’s saw and attacked Han, but was blocked.
Image

Luke used the force to drop a rat on Gandalf’s head in order to cause a stray attack to hurt someone, but the attack missed.
Image

So he tried to jump down and attack Barbosa, but slipped on the landing.
Image

Clint took another shot at Chell, but didn’t hurt her
Image

Leonidas attacked and wounded Cyclops
Image

Chell took a much needed drink from the tap
Image

It was so good she forgot to attack
Image

Barbosa ran to attack Indy, but tripped over his own feet and hurt himself when he hit the throne
Image

Bond tried to kick the gun out of Indy’s hand, but couldn’t get his leg high enough.
Image

So instead he tried to punch Indy, but didn’t hurt him
Image

Overview after round 4

At this point all the teams were disbanded.
Eastwood pulled out a Winchester and killed Chell
Image

Barbosa thrust his sword through Indy and into Bond, killing Indy and wounding Bond
Image

Leonidas finally got his revenge, wounding Waldo
Image

Gandalf summoned lightning and killed Barbosa
Image

Cyclops called Phoenix who attacked 6 out of the 8 remaining players. Gandalf was wounded and Waldo was killed.
Image

Cyclops then blasted Bond, finishing him off as well
Image

Han finished off Wesley by finding the weak spot in his armor
Image

Luke attacked Gandalf but failed to hurt him
Image

Overview after round 5
Image

Luke used the force to cause Cyclops to blast Gandalf, but it didn’t work
Image

So Luke finished him off the old fashioned way, with a lightsaber to the face.
Image

Clint took a shot at Cyclops but failed to hurt him.
Image

Han grabbed Wesley’s sword and attacked Leonidas, but was blocked
Image

Cyclops used the portals to leap up onto the wall
Image

Where he blasted and killed Clint
Image

Leonidas shield-bashed Han, wounding him
Image

But when he tried to follow up with his spear, it slipped.
Image

Overview
Image

Leonidas tried the shield bash again, but failed to wound Han
Image

So he grabbed his spear and headed for higher ground
Image

But Han wasn’t ready to let him go and gave chase
Image

Cyclops grabbed Chell’s portal gun and tried to use it to launch Han into Leonidas. He missed.
Image

And Han landed safely on the wall.
Image

Luke checked a chest on his way to the action and found a battle droid.
Image

The droid targeted Cyclops…
Image

But it had a serious malfunction
Image

Cyclops blasted at Luke but missed
Image

Han jumped down and attacked Cyclops, but armor saved him
Image

Luke called in an X-wing strafing run, but missed everyone
Image

So he attacked and wounded Leonidas
Image

Leonidas removed his helmet and dropped his shield and hurled his spear at Cyclops
Image

He hit Cyclops, but Cyclops’ armor held against the attack, barely.
Image

Overview after round 8
Image

Cyclops tried to do a fancy backflip while shooting lasers, but under-rotated and fell on his face
Image

Han took advantage of that and killed him
Image

Then Han took some cover
Image

Luke picked up Han’s discarded gun and shot and killed Leonidas
Image

Luke then used the force to blow the tap off the keg, spraying drink everywhere, and soaking Han
Image

Overview after round 9, down to 2 men, both from Star Wars incidentally
Image

Luke shot at Han, but he didn’t do enough damage
Image

He threw the gun at Han and tried to convince Han he “was not the minifig he was looking for.”
Image

Han started charging, but slipped…
Image

Han got up to attack, but the force was strong with that one, so he failed to attack and kill him.
Image

Han told Luke, “Darth Vader is your father!” Luke replied, “Dude, Revenge of the Sith totally ruined that surprise.” Then Han attacked and missed.
Image

Luke attacked but was blocked by Han’s armor
Image

Then he used the force to leap on top of the wall
Image

Han threw his sword at Luke, but missed
Image

He then retrieved his saw and dove for cover
Image

And he came to a stop behind the emptied keg
Image

Luke used the force to drop a piece of the arch on Han, but Han was under the arched part and was safe
Image

Then Luke ran over and attacked, but missed
Image

Luke then used the force to try to make Han cut himself with his saw, but the armor was in the way.
Image

So he chopped him with the lightsaber
Image

Finally ending the match
Image

Luke got so many moves there at the end because he went second one round and first the next and his heroic feats all succeeded, sort of.

Alright, time to review! I'm not going to say a ton, but here we go!

Gameplay: I'll admit, the first two turns were pretty boring. However, it really picked up around turns 3-4, and became really cool. I liked the mechanics with the portal guns, and all the crazy feats in turn 4 were nice. But how could anyone see Waldo? I'm giving it a 3, because the first two turns were just a bit boring.

Photography: All the pictures are beautiful and clear, especially considering the sheer amount of them. 5

Violence: There's no blood and little gore, which I personally don't care much about. It was an appropriate amount of violence for the amount of characters. 3

Writing: This is the low part, because there's no Excuse Plot, and not any sort of description in the writing. You gave a bit of detail to what was going on, but it was definitely the weak part of the game. 2

Overall Appeal: WALDO!!! The inclusion of him makes everything better. I liked most of the champions in the fight, and the battlefield was cool. It looks like you and the other players had a good time! I just wish you had some sort of story to it.

Overall Score: 3/5 (Average of scores, rounded)

Also, I now need to make my own Waldo minifigure. ^_^

Gameplay: I thought this battle went on for too long. I'm sorry, but I lost interest after a while and began to talk to girls on facebook. I guess for mechanics the chests and portal gun were interesting, so I'll round up. 2.

Photography: The photography was clear and good. 5.

Violence: There wasn't much violence honestly. Although I like the sillyness of these battles, in terms of violence it doesn't really hold up. 1.

Writing: There wasn't a story, and there doesn't need to be. This was silly, and silly is good good good good. 3.

Overall Appeal: I would've removed one or two of the teams because after a while I lost interest. Although it's clear you put effort into a variety of characters, you could've just kept the more interesting ones.

Overall Score: 2.5

Gameplay: like 2 maybe? I'm not too fond of the format in general.

Photography: The photography fine 4.

Violence: what violence? 2.

Writing: I believe it twas a comedy of sorts, and therefore you get a 2.

Overall Appeal: I was tempted to not even read it. 1.

Overall Score: 2.2

I loved this battle -- the characters' unique abilities were nicely represented, and hero vs. hero fights are always fun. I guess my biggest problem is that for some reason you decided to take Westley over Inigo Montoya.

I'm pretty sure that's a fanfic somewhere...

Thanks for the comments guys. I guess I should have stated at the beginning that I hosted this battle over facebook for a lot of my non-brikwars friends in the style of a forum battle.

I made about 40 characters available for selection and each player picked who they wanted, so it's not my fault Inigo didn't make the cut.

And I agree with the judges about it being short on description and violence, but it was on facebook (have to be careful what you put on there) and there were almost 170 pictures to narrate, so I rushed that part a little.
