It's time to get this section back in effect. Vs. Mode was a series of polls where people voted for their favorite character according to a certain theme. The character with the least amount of votes at the end of the week was eliminated. The first and only battle ever carried out was the Superninjas 2002 tourney which Guy won. It was surprisingly fun but still ended as a popularity contest. I've made a new system that may do something about that.

Here's a demo of what the fight index page looks like now:

This is mostly just a placeholder and you'll see more info and all that as I improve the engine.

I've had a simple version of this working on my hard drive's copy of the site for a while but I'm just now getting to a few more nitty-gritty parts of the engine. Things will still be visually simple this first time but the plan is to add more and more graphics generated by the poll itself to make things really interesting. I may or may not have a fully working version by June 20th but there will be enough to test. I'm making it a semi-closed test just so I can get more feedback and work with smaller numbers. Testers will get a link explaining the poll combat details, rules, ideas, blah blah blah. Again, please don't give this out to non-testers as it will make it hard to get everything fixed up. All testers will be given a shout-out in the credits as testers. I really need help here since an important part of the engine only lets me vote once a day :sagatlaugh:

To sign up, just post a reply here saying that you want to sign up. I appreciate any help that I get with testing this (if any) :salute:

Sure, I'm in!

Or do I actually have to use the words "I want to sign up"?

I want to sign up!

Nah, you don't have to use the exact words. Just make it obvious that you want to sign up :)

I planned to have something ready long before now but a lot of design stuff popped up while working on the 10th Anniversary update. I still want to start testing this some time later this year.
