Here is a post made by one of our member in Claymore Tournament Discussion thread:
Thanks for your suggestion Bugz. The problem is, certain conditions/terrains/locations may provide leverage to a contestant. As a result, the battle(s) will not be fair. I mean, a character getting leverage and other is not getting any, makes it a bit biased. Our intentions are to make the tournament, as fair as possible. We do have limit some characters but to make the tournament more open and competitive.
I will pass on your thoughts to others staff as well.
still this could turn into a popularity contest.
yamma win just he yamma (people as read his name in battle threads now and say insta win for yamma no matter what)
Shunsui- he beat number 1 espada 1 on 1 in shikai ya know (he didnt but you know what it like arguing it wasent a 1 on 1 fight to shunsui fans)
Ichigo will be first out (people got in there head that kubo made him weaker as series went on and sucks with mask) no it a story law always stronger people out there. (by this logic people think goku in DBZ got weaker after going SS as the fights after people where faster and stronger then him)
Vizards suck according to this forum
hopefully im wrong and this doesnt go into a pop contest
I think we should wait to hear the opinions of other posters before voting. Does Ichigo have his mastered bankai, but just can't use final form? Do characters have any info on the opponents abilities

I think it would be better if all the battles occur without any contestant knowing his/her opponents' abilities.Quote:
obviously ichigo wont have his final gestuga tensho form otherwise he would simply annihilate all of them
im still slightly confused though......... is ichigos new bankai included in this fight? or will it be his old crappy bankai?
if he has his new bankai included in this fight, i think he may be able to take on the likes of stark, ukitake, shunsui and even the captain commander
The problem with his bankai form that he used against Aizen was, it was quite dominating. Even without FGT, Aizen was pushed back with the bankai alone. In my humble opinion, the hollow mask (vesion 2) is a decent upgrade for Ichigo to win against opponents as you mentioned. One more thing guys, I have been part of the Claymore tournament as well. I noticed how fanbase effects the outcome. We never know who will win and who will lose.

Anyway, it's a shame because I think that if we don't include post dangai training Ichigo, then people are going to say that Ichigo is weak (since most people here seem to think that vaizard Ichigo is weaker than soul society arc Ichigo....), but if we include post dangai training Ichigo, then who's going to beat him? He was extremely powerful. I suppose it would have to be Ichigo with his second mask, like you said in your previous post.
Also, I do have a question.... Is Ishida allowed to use his Final quincy form in this tournament?

The staff actually debated quite a bit about including/excluding certain controversial characters, but ultimately decided that if we felt they had shown enough in the manga that they could spur an interesting battle discussion, they could be included. The real purpose of the tournament is to create and foster fun and entertaining discussions, after all.... even if little bit of competition keeps things interesting too. Also, if you notice, we tried to avoid pitting characters against each other in the early rounds who have already faced off in El Campo in order to keep things as fresh as possible by avoiding redundancy.
Oh, and I'm not sure if this has already been stated, but all characters should be assumed to be trying as hard as they can to win each fight. Personal relationships will not come in to play. Even two allies who you would not expect to ever see fight in the manga would hold nothing back.

This seems to be a good idea. I can't wait to participate!
Here are some matches that caught my eyes:
Barragan vs. Tessai - might be a more epic version of Hachi vs. Barragan
Nel vs. Harribel - current Espada #3 vs. former Espada #3, yay!
Starrk vs. Mayuri
How do characters without their full powers revealed fare?
