4,000,000 contestants from across the universe wage war for the purpose of becoming reigning champ, for whatever suits them. For some it’s about endorsements and money, others it’s about prestige, honor, or maybe about testing one’s skills in glorious combat, and some are just in it to kill other beings legally on a galactic stage to the chant of bloodthirsty fans.

From there the Lucky 2,000 will be allowed to choose a team of 5. Team Warfare Battles will be held constantly for the next 5 years in order to get points. The 100 highest teams move to the next round, from which another 75 will be eliminated, the next will be standard tournament duals until a champion is crowned.

Entry Form: My personal character
Name: Nova 227
Call sign: Nova
Species: Alandri Star Mech
Gender: None physically-male persona
Biography: Nova was a Starfighter Astromech, over time he started learning from his dogfights, and became Self-aware. When he questioned orders, under the ROH Sentient Rights accord he became a living being with all the rights and privileges afforded a human being. Alandri decided to set him loose instead of spending a fortune in the ROH courts to win a court case, and dealing with all the bad publicity that would come after. However never one to lose an opportunity for profit Alandri slapped Nova with a massive bill for his own construction (and every repair he had previously). With Ultima coming up, it seemed a way to make the money he needs. Alandri is fine with letting him do it, if he succeeds they look good to the public and their product is advertised like never before, if he is destroyed, they remove a potential media nightmare from their list. While he is not a slave Nova is deeply in debt, and always looking to make money to pay it off. He is brilliant, logical, and has a connection to the Extranet
Appearance: with a body made of Carbon fiber-synthetic muscle covered with White Ceramic alloy plates Nova has painted himself blue in a mechanical pattern with a Nova burst on his left breast. A positronic brain, nervous system, and advanced sensors mean he has some of the fastest reflexes on the battlefield.
