Yeah, I went for 500/60/60. So then, second round I had 755/115/65.

A cool contest. Definitely could be expanded with more skills and some rebalancing.

I started with
HP 500
ATK 21
DEF 99
Round one went just as planned although Dex's three skills hurt the stat gain a bit (any one skill high attack build would've been ideal and any pure-stat builds would've been decided by the pm order). I missed the first fight list completely due to limited Internet access and didn't really have time to analyse the results enough for the second list.

Heh. Funny, that! That certainly explains our first battle a lot more clearly then.

Since each of us were only doing each other 5 damage per hit, the battle must have lasted over 100 rounds! The result was almost entirely based upon how often Skill took place, since 1/10th of 5 isn't even 1.

Am I the only person to increase my health above 600 with the training points?

I wound up choosing Skill and Courage with 780 health, 41 attack, and 31 defense. I was trying to hedge my bets, so to speak. And it seemed to work well enough to get me to the final three.

My stats was something like 500/20/80 and without Bravery.

To be honest, my main problem was that I became very busy that I didn't have time to made up good stats or lists... On the other hand, I couldn't remember what those things were... :(

Chaco--your fight had rounding in effect--I took that .5 to a 1.

brian_s--you got lucky in that in both of your fights, neither of you could hurt the other, and you had the higher (highest) health. Sillyman also had 700 health.

It does seem like this one was quite a popular contest--I will probably run another at some point in the future.

I think that writing a PHP-HTML or PHP-Flash app for this would be an interesting exercise for me. Not that it would be too useful, (and I won't have any time until end of next week). I can actually see this idea being turned into a browser RPG, KOL styled but that's just me thinking aloud.

The contest was really fun, as it didn't require much time and attention to participate and... have fun :).
