Champ's post has been restored and is now up for judging considering he was not originally informed about the extension. KOA will officially re-judge the match.
Damn I really want to respond to Champ's post but I can't. :crazy:
Danzo, I love your strategy regarding Zabuza's knowledge of human anatomy. That certainly would give him a great way to capture Yamato and give him a good means of keeping him unconscious. I also like your strategy regarding Hidden Mist and sneak attacks. I like the idea of dampening the wood with water, but I don't think this will actually make too much of a difference. I do agree, however, that Yamato's 4 pillar cage won't necessarily be able to hold back Zabuza and his water techs. I like how you brought Zabuza's Demon Shroud into the mix, it certainly would give him an edge under the right circumstances and I think you utilized it well.
Champ, I agree that Yamato knowing about the Hidden Mist will help him, but I certainly don't think it will eliminate it as a threat. I like your point about using his Locking Walls to protect him from the Hidden Mist, but I don't see how this can help him in the long run considering he still has to wait for his opponent to attack. While Yamato has both Water and Earth, I don't think we can assume he has water dragon. Its a nice idea, but since its not shown in the manga, that really can't be assumed he has it. I thought you came up with some pretty unique ways to show how Yamato would win, but showing feats of other characters to back-up your own character's strength can be somewhat hit and miss. I do like your closing argument, it really proposes a good scenario for capturing Zabuza.
All in all, I think you were both strong and weak with your arguments at times. I certainly believe that 4 Pillar Cage might not fully restrict Zabuza and his jutsu. Even with Yamato enhancing his Moukuton with his chakra, I have doubts it would stand up to Zabuza's sword if he could still swing it freely. I agree that Zabuza's knowledge of the human anatomy would give him a great way to subdue his opponent, though Yamato has a great way to confine his opponents as well. I also think that while Locking Walls is a great way to counter Silent Killing, I feel that a strategy such as that may not benefit Yamato in the long run and ultimately leave him at a disadvantage. Clearly Champ had no defense against Zabuza's Demon Shroud, but he did create a good scenario in the end.
With that said, I think it was too little too late when it came to Champ's closing. I feel that you should have created that type of scenario for countering Silent killing earlier. But since you adopted it so late, I don't consider it a match-winning response because your closing should really be about bringing home your main points rather than creating new ones. Bottom line? I feel that this debate might have been better off if it was argued a little more, but these things can't always be perfect.
I give my vote to Danzo. Both of you keep in mind that KOA still has to re-judge this, so its still anyone's game.
Great arguments on both sides without going into much detail, I feel Champ did more to support his points. I give Champ.
Koa's re-judging will be the deciding factor here.
My vote remains with danzo for the reason his closeing points are far better then champs
overall out of 30 i had
