It is the year 2015 and the world has progressed in various ways technologically, medically, and physically. Enter the world of Gunpla: The technological marvels of the current generations have allowed model makers of the plastic gundam suits to animate and fight it out with their models in contests to see who will win. This is the era of the third Gundam boom in which has seen the increase of many sales of the models and many more fans of the gundam series. Entire celebrity followings have been made to center around this phenomenon as much as sports and music. With the boom of gunpla in the late eighties and nineties along with the commercial success with gunpla the series has become a massive hit for all mecha fans everywhere. Enter the national gunpla tournaments and franchise. Now of days you can use models built by yourself and others to fight with other people using the advanced plavsky particle machines to animate the pseudo mobile suits. Tournaments are abound everwhere from country to country and are even broadcasted on national tv and in the tournaments the ending is usually the National Finals where two of the best builders in the world take their place to become grand champinion of gunpla. However after seeing the market crave more variation than the usual from the tournaments of this they decided to add a new championship to the set. Adding to the current Intentional titles of: North American Championship, Pacific Championship, Asian Championship, Euro Championship, and North African Championship along with International Champion comes the first ever Tag Team Championship. Previously tag teams had not been recognized officially but with the increase of interest once more various companies including Bandai and the makers of the plavsky particle machines which make it all possible comes the International Team Championship. Now not only can friends join together in an attempt to gain the newly made championship (with the team being sponsored by someone) but strangers are allowed to enter a specially made randomizer which will give them a team in which will be formed to compete against another team in a bid to win a sponsor to enter the tournament. With the tournament being held around the world it is more than likely that contestants will need sponsors from some company or another otherwise they'd have to front the cost themselves. With the start of July comes the start of the tag tournament and where our story starts. Now is the time in which to reach for the stars and become one... === Rules: 1. All typical roleplay rules apply 2. Canon Gundam armor and systems do not matter in this roleplay. A sword will cut through Strike, Gundam Wing will be wiped out by a Zaku if the pilot is better than the other. This also goes along with special systems having little effect on the machine itself. Things like the berserk system won't have much effect outside of a small boost in one area or another. For example Gundam F91 can be beat by a Gyan, Devil Gundam can be beat by a mere Jegan, and melee based gundams are at a disadvantage, if they don't have precautions, against heavy ranged suits like the Quebley. Think carefully about which suit you want because these aren't the real suits just replicas. 3. You are allowed up to three mobile suits to use with one alternate in case your in story lose one of your suits. Suits can be rebuilt but it will take time and it takes longer depending on the skills of your gunpla making skills on your character.Each gunpla MUST HAVE A CANON BASE AND CANNOT HAVE MORE THAN ONE SPECIAL POWER BOOST ON IT Likewise special systems are minor at best if one's character does not have the skill/money to make it better like Meijin's upgraded Exia. 4. We're all going to be on the same team but NPC characters can be controlled if you want to control a npc on another team please ask first. 5. The more custom your gunpla, more weapons special features, the more skill you need to have in gunpla build fighting or a rich background for someone to pay someone to make these suits. The more skill you have when actually battling with gunpla translates you into not being as good a builder. WHY is this in place one may ask? This rule is to keep people from being massively skilled builds on Sei's level who can still compete like Reiji or Felini. Having a split like Mao is possible. === Disclaimer: This roleplay is essentially will be the same sort of thing Gundam Try Fighters has going on but with larger teams. However ironically this roleplay was made on a different site before the first episode of the season aired. No canon characters are involved in this roleplay is also worth noting.
