A New Versus Series!

With the Kaggath Tournament coming to a close, I thought that I would introduce a new versus series (to debut after the Kaggath Finale).

This versus series is based off of the Jedi Temple Apprentice Tournament, a tournament in which thirty-two appprentices would demonstrate their skills to gain a potential master. I have taken the layout of the tournament, slightly tweaked it, and took it to the extreme. Instead of students battling each other, I have taken some of the best of all time and pitted them against each other. Of course I will be putting my own spin on it

I created this series because I have grown extremely tired of seeing incredibly lop-sided match-ups or the Sidious/Luke vs. so-and-so. Thus I have painstakingly studied dozens of characters and created a bracket of thirty two competitors, and made the battles as close as possible. Below are the competitors. I will not say who is fighting who. Keep that a surprise.

[REDACTED]

You may spot a few oddballs in the mix, but I have done my best to create the closest battles possible. You may also be wondering why characters like Yoda aren't in the mix. The reason for that is because it is very difficult to find characters to match or even beat them, without disrupting the flow of the tournament. I mean, if someone can beat Yoda, then he/she has a pretty high chance of winning. But don't fret. I plan to have multiple tournaments over time. So your favorite characters may make it in.

After the primary tournament comes to a close, I will host a losers tournament- a tournament in which the losers from the above list will battle. Once the losers champion has been decided, he/she will battle the winner of the primary torunament in an epic Grand Finale.

Predictions as to who will face who? Who do you think will win in the end?

My main question is: when does it start?

I feel as if some of these are gonna be incredibly one sided, just due to the fact based on showings/feats of some of them.

Shortly after the Kaggath Finale comes to a close.

Unless everyone wants it earlier?

The later rounds probably, but I assure that I have tried to make the first round as close as possible. I will not be taking feats into account, because, when it gets down to it, all that matters is skill.

But...feats can show skill. XD

IMO the Kaggath has already been won by Traya, but they seem content to continue on, they could go on for another week, I don't know, it would be refreshing to debate something else.

EDIT: Could we also keep this as close to Dark vs Light as possible? makes debating these things far more approachable and doesn't fog up half these characters' abilities.

Maybe, but I think Aubere is good enough to match them so this won't happen, either it being a close match Like Bastilla vs Satele, or wether its with an odd environment or condition.
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away from… save one.

Well, let's say we are pitting Revan against Qui-Gon Jinn (not an actual match-up). Revan may have greater feats, but Qui-Gon has shown superior skill.

Edit: By 'feats' I don't mean feats like 'leading armies' or 'conquered half the galaxy' or 'killed a buch of people' I'll probably discuss dueling feats (one-on-one), but not feats that have no relation to the battle at hand.

You're probably right, but I'll wait a bit to see what others think.
