This is a revitalizing of the old thread because it got passed over and i think this could be a good game.

2007-08-13, 06:10 AM
Due to a certain phobia, I won't play. But OOTS showdown was awesome.

2007-08-13, 05:46 PM
Oooh I'm interested. I'll PM you my choices...

2007-08-13, 06:09 PM
The Flash is madly overpowerzomg!!!!! Seriously though you need to tone down that init bonus.

Raiser Blade
2007-08-13, 09:45 PM
hmm looking back on teh flash i will tone him down not so much on speed but on damage to compensate because come on possible 5 damage its a little too much

Edit: i will gladly take character fixing suggestions so if you think a character is under/over powered speak up

Edit numero 2: toning down the hulks 6damage attack to 4
for those of you who had him as first choice you may pick a new number 1 if you so desire

2007-08-14, 07:35 AM
Ok I'll join in, sending pm now. :smallsmile:
