    Eh, I can only think of one addition at the moment:

    King Mickey, Donald and Goofy (Kingdom Hearts)

    ::shrugs::

    And I dunno about Locations, I don't think they'd be as useful in this draft as they were in the CB Draft.

    I'd say no to Donald and Goofy from KH. Never played the game, but as I understand it, they're pretty much just plot devices.

    For team picks, how about tripling up some of the Koopa kids from Super Mario Bros 3? Individually, they aren't that much to handle, but some of them have some cool powers (Magic, illusions, etc) that can be useful at least as distractions in team battle. We could also add Chupon to Ultros (Final Fantasy VI) to make it a better pick.

    I'd also be in favor of getting rid of Kyle Katarn and Jaden Korr. Again, there's a Jedi Draft, and they fit better here. I've yet to see arguments for them that didn't fall into general Star Wars universe arguments. That, or we come up with a SHAZAM-style rule for them. :p

    I agree with axing the Rampagers and Kraid. I hate beast picks. And Killer Instinct, so I support axing them. :p

    I must admit to no familiarity with most of the games on the team list so I can't judge them really. Cody/Haggar/Guy strikes me as a weak team though.

    And I've always supported the booting of the Jedi to the Jedi Draft.

    Yeah, I'm in favor of giving Kyle and Jaden the boot as well.

    And yeah, the Final Fight crew does seem pretty weak. But then, we still have Mike Tyson on there. By himself. They're not that weak. :p

    The only bad thing about not being the commish anymore is that I can't protect Mike Tyson. But I can beg and plead that he be left on the list.

    If he is removed, I will ban someone.

    I still maintain that he is criminally underrated.

    I'll shove out some possible fire emblem teams, but quite a few of them my be too powerful to have in teams with the coming release of Goddess of the Dawn.

    Brothers:
    Oscar, Boyd, Ralph
    - Awesome Combo Attack here!

    Pegesus Knights:
    Marcia, Tanith, Elincia
    - There's a pretty sweet Combo Attack here as well.

    Greil's Mercenaries:
    Greil,Ike,Mist,Titania


    The Four Riders
    The Black Knight, Bertram, Bryce, Petrine


    Dragon Riders:
    Jill, Haar, Shiharam


    Beast Tribe:
    Giffca, Lethe, Mordecai, Ranulf


    Bird Tribe:
    Tibarn, Ulki, Janaff, Reyson


    Elemental Onslaught:
    Soren, Ilyana, Calill, Rhys


    Swordmasters:
    Mia, Zihark, Stefan, Lucia


    Ashnard is too powerful to put on a team, I'll look for footage on him later.

    Evil.

    I was kinda waiting on you, actually. :p

    More teams? Less? Yes or no to the PL? More cuts? Etc, etc.

    At this stage, I'm leaning:
    No more PL. If it fails, we can always look at it again next time.
    Same no of GMs.
    The teams + cuts probably leave the list at about the right size.
    No more Rampage/Kraid. Monsters FTL. I'm also tempted to cut Tyson just to see who Inty bans in retaliation. :p
    Teams, I'm not really familiar with the games they're likely to come from, so I have no further suggestions there.

    As for Donald and Goofy...they just seem like a generic wizard and a generic knight, to me. Nothing that makes them stand out as characters, which I care more about than their power.

    I'll work up the list as it will stand tomorrow. But I still want to see some more hero picks to balance the villians. Though it's difficult because you tend to have uberpowerful enemies being evil...:p

    I can't think of any hero picks right now, but I can name a few villains to add. :p

    From DoC:FFVII -

    Azul the Cerulian
    Shelke the Transparent
    Rosso the Crimson
    Nero the Sable
    Weiss the Immaculate

    and Possibly Genesis depending on Crisis Core.

    Sorry for the double post, but I have a few more teams to suggest.

    Hojo's Legacy:
    Aerith Gainsborough (VII), Vincent Valentine (FF VII), Red XIII (VII)

    It might be a little too powerful, but there's still tons of characters that can beat them.

    The Seagulls:
    Yuna (X-2 no summoning powers), Rikku (x/x-2) Payne (x-2)

    and here's a few more characters to add...

    Emperor Larsa (FFXII)
    Babus(Tactics Advance)
    Llednar Twem(Tactics Advance)
    Ritz Malheur(Tactics Advance)
    Ultimecia(FFVIII)
    Edea(FFVIII)
    Adel(FFVIII)
    Jaster Rouge(Rogue Galaxy)
    Kisala(Rogue Galaxy)
    Zegram Ghart(Rogue Galaxy)
    Lilika Rhyza(Rogue Galaxy)

    Evil.

    Dumb question, I guess, but does that mean (if the Seagulls are included), that whoever chooses Yuna will get to pick if she will be the summoner version OR the X-2/team attached version?

    Does Larsa actually do anything? I've only seen him hang around chucking potions at me.

    Seagulls? Wait...I think I meant gullwings...or something....what IS the right name for them?

    Uh...I think that is all Larsa does...other than watching me die :mad:

    But over all, he was helpful during those times....somewhat.

    I think Shadow should be removed for being too powerful.

    I think Shadow should remain in but just be judged as a normal hedgehog. Only with intelligence so he knows he's about to die.

    Sorry about this, I'm getting hammered with uni at the moment and my internet connection failed. Everything should be back to normal soon.

    What the hell is wrong with Shadow? If we are keeping the ZOMG UBER FF CHARACTERS THAT CAN DO ANYTHING, then why can't we keep him in here? A lot of those characters have the same powers and every gets all wet and excited about the FF characters being all that, I don't see why.
