Thanks to Ramen Tengoku Ramen Tengoku and SneakyLink SneakyLink for approving this thread.

Welcome to the MultiVersus Rate Their Chances thread! In here, we discuss and debate potential candidates for Warner Bros.' platform fighter, MultiVersus. Each day, we rate a certain character or concept in terms of chance and want. We use a scale of 0%-100%. Just keep in mind that one person's interpretation of what a 25% chance (for example) means will differ from what another person thinks a 25% means. But don't overthink it, just go with your gut feeling and make a judgement based on your knowledge and research on the character. This is a forum game after all, so have fun!

By participating each day, you can earn nominations (noms) to use towards a character or concept you want to discuss. The goal is to obtain enough noms to push your idea into the top 7. At the end of each week the top 7 will be locked in, at that point nominations for those characters/concepts are null and void. The days will last 24-48 hours, depending on the amount of posts and conversations going on. As a rule of thumb I will typically end days if there aren't any new posts for 24 hours.

There are several ways to earn noms. The first way is to abstain. If you do not want to rate a character for any reason, you can write "Abstain" and you will still get 5 noms. Explaining why you abstained is appreciated, but not required. The next method is by writing 4 sentences per character, 2 sentences for chance, 2 for want. This will grant you 5 noms. Keep in mind that you need these 4 sentences, not just to get 5 noms, but also to have your scores be counted towards the total. However, you can abstain on one of the scores and still get 5 noms. So for example if you don't want to give a character a chance score but you want to gush about them and give them a want score, you can provide two sentences of reasoning for want and your want score will be used in the average. In addition, you can earn 10 noms for giving a character 10 sentences of reasoning. It doesn't matter if you have more sentences explaining chance than want, or vice-versa as long as there are 10 sentences in total.

Keep in mind that you can also divide your noms among different characters and concepts. For instance, if you earn 5 noms you can use 3 towards Joker and 2 towards Concept: another Looney Tunes rep.

Here is an example of an adequate rating:

Superman
Chance: 95%
He is one of DC's flagship characters and one of the most iconic superheroes of all time. With how popular DC movies have become, I can see them getting at least a couple reps and Superman is a prime candidate.

Want: 100%
I grew up with Superman's comics and movies so I have an attachment to him. Plus he has plenty of powers and abilities to make for a cool moveset.

After each day, I will calculate and share the average for the character/concept's want and chance scores. We won't be doing much with these scores other than seeing if we end up being accurate or not in the long-term.

Now that the groundwork has been set, let's get into the rules.

1. Please follow the global rules, listed here.

2. Debates are allowed and encouraged! However, please be civil. A back and forth conversation is fine as long as it doesn't get out of hand. Any name calling, trolling or harassing will get you a warning.

3. After a character's day has ended, you are allowed a grace period of one hour to get your rating in. After that, discussing the character further will be considered off-topic.

4. For now, you can only nominate characters that are owned, or partially owned by Warner Bros, or had a product distributed by Warner Bros. As well as characters who have made a significant appearance in Warner Bros media (Whether it be their comics, TV shows, or movies) like LeBron James. I realize that this is vague, so if you want to nom a character and you aren't sure if they qualify, please PM me and I'll review them alongside the moderators.

5. Characters DO NOT need support threads to be nominated. But any character who does will have their support thread be linked in the post that starts their day. The purpose for this is to give people an easy way to do some research on a character before making a judgement on them.

6. If there is a tie in the top 7 when its locked down, we do double days where we discuss two characters or concepts in the same day. These days will generally last longer.

7. In the event that there are too many abandoned ideas sitting at the bottom of the noms list, we'll do what's called a purge where the nominated characters and concepts below a certain nom threshold will be taken off the list. The exact threshold will vary with each purge. And don't worry, I will warn the thread way before the purge happens to allow adequate time for some ideas to be saved.

8. Any character or concept can be nominated an unlimited amount of times. However, you have to wait two weeks after their day has ended to re-nominate them. I encourage you all to only re-nominate characters or concepts if there is a drastic change in speculation that warrants a rerate.

9. You can edit your ratings anytime during the day. However, you are not allowed to edit your ratings after their respective day has ended. Doing so will render your scores and noms null and void. This is to prevent cheating. You can still edit your ratings during the one hour grace period, though.

That is all. If you have any questions, concerns, or recommendations for the thread, feel free to PM me or the two moderators listed above. Now debate until your hearts are content!

______________________________________________________________________

Day 0

The goal of this day is to decide what the first top 7 will be. The assignment will be to vote for seven characters you want to talk about. The seven characters with the most amount of votes will become the first top 7. The next day, Day 1, will be the first rating and that's when you will be able to start earning noms. No noms will be awarded during today.

A reminder that you can vote for any character who is completely/partially owned by Warner Bros, or any characters that have made a significant appearance in a Warner Bros. comic book, TV show, movie, etc. Examples of I.Ps and media that Warner Bros owns includes, but is not limited to:
  • Looney Tunes
  • DC Universe
  • HBO shows
  • Cartoon Network
  • Adult Swim
  • Boomerang
  • Mortal Kombat
  • Rooster Teeth

I will start:
  • Joker (DC comics)
  • Scorpion (Mortal Kombat)
  • Ed Edd n Eddy
  • John Oliver
  • Pennywise the Clown (IT)
  • Doomsday (DC comics)
  • Tony Soprano

Hold up, I thought we were nominating first then voting? If that being voting was the case I would've put the Ed boys on my list.

Chance: 100%
Chance It'll Happen This Year: 95%

When it comes to Scorpion I don't think there's anything needing to be said, he's apart of one of Warner's biggest game franchises and is a character with huge popularity. When it comes to moveset he has lots to work with. When it comes to memes (seemingly important, as Ultra Instinct Shaggy apparently inspired this game and we got UI Shaggy in), he doesn't have much but "Get Over Here!" is still iconic. When it comes to being too mature, I admit I haven't seen it but from what I heard Game of Thrones is mature yet we have Arya Stark so I don't see it as an issue. The only thing holding him back from me being 100% certain he'll happen this year is maybe other characters out prioritize him (maybe characters like Gandalf or Rick who I think the devs see as more popular or memeable) or that character making would be slow (we don't know the schedule, it could take 6 months for one character for all we know), but Scorpion will happen.

Want: 80%

Honestly weird spot for me where I really want him but I can't imagine me being excited because I'm sure he'd be here. Yeah, I like Luigi but I don't get excited seeing him confirmed for Smash, that's just gonna happen. There are also Mortal Kombat characters I want over Scorpion like Johnny Cage, Raiden, Sonya, Johnny Cage, Scorpion would still be cool but he's not my most wanted MK character.

Ruby Rose Predictions: 96.4%

Noms: Gumball x5

Do we still vote after we participate?
So basically the voting was only for Day 0. From now on the characters/concepts will be chosen by nominations that you and others earn by participating. After Day 7, the top 7 characters on the nominations list will be locked in, and the cycle repeats. For more info on how noms work, check the first post.

Chance: 100%

One of the devs asked what Mortal Kombat characters people want to see in the game and Scorpion is, of course, number 1. I imagine he would be a dumbed down version of his normal self, with sword attacks, punches and kicks and, of course, his classic spear. I would also like to see him make hell fire rise from the floor. I always thought that was cool.

Want: 100% I want plenty of Mortal Kombat reps. I love Mortal Kombat. I played every fighting game from Trilogy to present but 4. I want Mortal Kombat to be the next fire emblem even and add so many it makes people mad.

Noms: **** Grayson x3 (He's Nightwing but he's also the OG Robin)
Maxwell x1
Jackie Chan x1 (Can I nom him? He had that cartoon on toonami)

I guess so. The rules of the thread state that characters with a product distributed by Warner Bros is allowed, and I think letting the show air on Toonami and CNN technically counts. So while the connection is loose I've allowed characters in a similar situation already so I'll say yes because I don't want to be hypocritical.

Considering Mortal Kombat is the most iconic game franchise Warner Bros. owns, I think a character from it would be an incredibly high priority for Multiversus. It’s one of the first things that spring to mind to most people when they think of arcade fighting games, and it was one of the main catalysts for the ESRB rating system coming into place. Even today the games are still doing gangbusters and Warner Bros is still making animated and live action films for the franchise. The only concern I could potentially see is Scorpion being too violent, but considering we have Arya Stark in this game, I don’t consider that too much of an issue. I doubt they’d have him ripping out Steven Universe’s heart or anything, but I think you could still tone him down while still staying true to his fighting style.

Want: 80%
Scorpion is one of those inclusions where I’d respect it more than I’d be actively excited for him. I’m not much of a Mortal Kombat person and him being of those “no duh” characters does make his inclusion here less exciting than it would be in Smash or something, but he’s more than worthy of being included in Multiversus.

Nominate: Eric Andre x5
