@Blueflame yes you can, and you can also have any 'version' of the character that you like. As long as you have agreed with your opponent first, just like any other match. Also not all tournaments will allow a Canon character, but its fine to ask.

This is dead as fuck, but a friend tried to make an Arena roleplay and discovered they couldn't set it as Ranked. Any reason for it? Do you need to have a certain amount of Arena posts or is it just a thing that only a mod can do?

You only need mod approval to change it after it's already been posted to the best of my knowledge. I'd try it again if the forum was having a hickup.

@Xandrya So looking forward to our next match, just a few bits of advice before you take me or anyone else on.

1) You're undoubtedly a talented writer but the learning curve of non-collaborative writing can sometimes take a bit of getting used to. I started my RPing in the arena so it comes naturally to me, but you are writing to kick the living crap out of your opponents character not to nessecarily tell a dramatic combat story. Too often in our match did you have your character simply react to what was happening without counter attacking.

2) Be aggressive! Every post counts every action should have a reaction. If you're not constantly pressing the attack, you should be using your posts to set traps or to 'prep' bigger and more powerful attacks. Try not to use too many posts 'in a defensive stance' or 'waiting to see what your opponent will do'

3) Give your character a lot of different ways to fight, whether that be magic, abilities or gadgets. If for any reason your character is more stripped down or limited, take advantage of the environment around you, keep all of your attacks diverse and creative, make it harder for your opponent to 'write his way out' of a dangerous situation. Keep this in mind when choosing the fighters and locations.

4) Make use of the character sheets sub topic section of the guild to keep your roster of arena characters, so you can keep them nice an different from each other, and available for easy reference.

You're gonna do some real damage kid, looking forward to our next bout.

I appreciate the advice! But like you said, definitely a learning curb on my end. The hardest thing to do imo is switching my mentality as I have zero experience participating in arena RPs.

Whenever. A few of my RPs have slowed down.

@Xandrya Okay well I'm thinking we could try a fantasy match up. Sword and sorcery low-mid tier.

Put together a character sheet and let me see what youve got.

Do you guys only score for T-1? Or can it be T-2. Also, iis it only T-1? Or can it be T-2, T-3, T-4, and T-5?

@Melting Point
I'm absolutely certain nobody here would actually use T2-5, mostly due to the vagueries and completely lack of effort required for that form of roleplay. The "Tails vs Sephiroth" fight that is commonly posted as a joke falls into, I believe T5, and for that exact reason T5 isn't exactly taken seriously at all. The shortening and removal of details causes a huge failing in posts, makes it so that fights can indefinitely stutter between two actions being countered back to back without any resolution until one party decides to lose. (Either by quitting or conceding.)
