Wow, this is really a killer group.. I really dont know who wins this.. I see only Jozu in 5th place.
I would love to see BB lose in this group, but i doubt thats possible.. If you look at it objective, Dragon and BB are the favorites here.
But if Dragon and Luffy fight together, what is very likely in a battle royale, they also have a chance to get to the next round. Their combined power > Blackbeard
On pure power alone no tag team matchups and the like then its obviously Dragon and BB....setting those two monsters aside it's fun to play around with the luffy, jozu, beckman thing....am curious how luffy would fare against diamond jozu using haki
aren't you all underestimating Benn Beckman? even someone like Kizaru backed off seeing him. anyway, i do think that first two will be Dragon and Blackbeard in no particular order.
Battle royale, dragon and luffy will fight togheter, obviously, besides, they would all ally toghter, to take BB out first, the BB and Jozu can be taken care of by dragon and luffy.
Dragon is considered the world's Worst criminal ever in History of OP because of his beliefs and his actions of leading revolutionary army against the World Government, but strength wise we don't know nor does it matters for WG what matters to them is his actions taking capability like Gorosei..
so in a strength wise match considering he has COO knows haki and Smoker backed off after seeing him in logue town I can say he is definitely stronger than VA's and comparable to Admirals, but here except luffy every one else's strength is comparable to Admirals..
but still after all my calculations i still think the power wise ranking order will 1.BB 2.Dragon 3. Benn Beckman 4. Jozu 5. Luffy
Luffy will prove how compares to admirals in the movie next month...
well,the strongest here should be dragon,as he is stronger than garp,imo. but Blackbeard might have kept up with him,anyway those 2 are the strongest ones. rufy is most likely the weakest in this round,as he shouldn't be able to face jaws's haki and experience,not to mention that the diamond is too hard for rufy to be broken.
Dragon, the most wanted man in the world, leader of the revolutionaries, able to create some kind of storm or whatever, son of Garp and father of Luffy. Didn't see much from him but I have no doubt he belongs among the strongest. He advances to the next round. Second place is a bit harder. Luffy is still not strong enough for the big league so he is out. Jozu is strong but he didn't impress me so much in the war so i would say that he is out too. That leaves Blackbeard and Beckmann. Having two very strong devil fruits makes Blackbeard a dangerous opponent but on the other hand Beckman is Shank's first mate and he made Kizaru stop just by pointing his gun at him. We know how strong admirals are and being able to stop them without fighting is no small feat and Beckman is just so much cooler then Blackbeard so i go with him :P
I think we should consider BB pretty much equal to Shanks. They are kou, after all. And Beckman should be enough below Shanks to not be a serious match for BB.
And the performance of Shanks and co. from the end of the war shouldn't be taken so seriously. If we only see that the war stopped because the marines weren't ready to take on Red hair pirates, then he's the winner of the tournament. But everyone had enough of the war by then, and that was Kizaru, who doesn't take things very seriously. Had it been Akainu, he'd have risked a bullet in his head to make sure Luffy dies as well.

BTW this is a 3D battle, there're 3 people with D. :D
Roger is a different matter than Dragon. So i can't vote him. Let's do it interesting... Teach and Luffy pass to next stage. Beckman didn't do anything in the war so he will stay that way xp
BB and Jozu.
I´m not really sure if luffy with armanent haki could hurt jozu, he is hard as diamond at all.
i swear, if luffy gets a pass because he teams up with dragon............ just vote for one of the two strongest. not the two who are most friendly with each other. that said i will be voting for bb. out of the other 3 i would put dragon at the top then beckman then jozu. i definitely dont think jozu is stronger than beckman, shank's number 2. i dont even think marco is stronger than beckman.
Nah, I don't think BB would do too well in this round. He's too cocky. I'm not saying he's not strong, but he way overestimates himself and relies too much on his DF. Plus Jozu would be focusing on him. He'd probably beat Jozu, but not without taking some serious damage, making him vulnerable to the others. Luffy's DF plus Haki should protect him somewhat from Beckman, who we've only seeing using a gun. Guns are generally useless on Luffy. Plus Beckman is on Shank's crew, so he probably wouldn't go after Luffy from the start. So BB takes out Jozu, and is then taken out by either Dragon or Beckman without much of a problem. Beckman and Dragon fight over Luffy because their dreams for him are different. Not too sure about who would come out on top, but my vote goes to Beckman. Dragon's second-hand man is Ivankov, who wasn't able to threaten an admiral like Beckman did. The subordinate's strength does reflect on the leader's as well, so I don't see Dragon being able to win against Beckman. So, Luffy and Beckman advance.
Now everyone else just has to figure out how much of that was just made up to justify voting for Luffy, lol.
Toughest one so far!
All of them are strong!!
If I recall, Oda said that Beckman was the most intelligent character of the whole manga right?
That would mean he's the Shikamaru (Naruto) of this manga.
Pair that with the fact that he the first mate of Shanks, that means he's in the top of the whole manga!
And I'm sure he would find an easy way to defeat BB, who's just too cocky and seems like a really stupid guy...
But then you have Dragon who's the leader of the rebellion!
So, he can't be a push-over... but we never saw him fight, so we have no clue...
And you have BB who's a Yonkou (most likely)...
And he has two DF, which makes him really strong...
I'll have to think about it, but it's definitely between those three...
I don't think Luffy or Jozu would stand a chance right now, as they are...
