The multiblade thing looks like it was suggested by Erza (chapter 14 for instance) and this memory overload technique was probably brainstormed beforehand. Gray is battle hardened and knows when and how to play dirty while Rufus is used to a one strike win. In my opinion, emotions didn't have much to do with it, just preparation, cleverness and prolonged fighting experience.
I wonder about Juvia actually taking somebody on. In chapter 304, Mavis literally said that "Juvia will provide logistical support by looking for enemies" and we didn't see her in action. Could be she's the team leader.
Coming next weeks, Erza against Kagura and Minerva, Gajeel against Sting and Laxus against Jura?
Well, I won't say that this was a good battle, but it wasn't simply a plot-shield win.
Gray was actually pretty brillant in this battle.
Basically, he created a lot of ice, to force Rufus to use fire.
Then, as the ice was melting, he went straight through it and took the fire damage so that he can get close to him to give him the final blow.
The fact that Gray was able to take this attack without problem is because he's used to take way worst fire damage from Natsu.
Thus, the reason he said that he "memorized" stronger fire before.
Overall, this wasn't that bad!
Chapter 306 raws :
I voted for Epic for this chapter, but I think I was caught up by how cool Gray looked in Rufus' hat. XD I probably should have voted for Good, but whatever. At least Rufus didn't go down without doing some damage.
And to those that don't like the friendship-boosts-magic thing, it's been explicitly said that strong emotions (or at least strong positive emotions) boost magical power. What's wrong with that? And if you don't like it, fair enough, but at least accept that it's gonna happen in Fairy Tail. And if you really don't like it, then don't read Fairy Tail.
I hope the following fights will not be this lame
it's very disappointing
This is why I put the option Great in OP forums. It's better than good, yet not epic.
I liked this chapter. Granted, I'm a sucker for weapon designs and this chapter provided me a lot of eye-candy. And it was not such a fun fight but at least not that bad.
And Rufus Magic is probably the best after Arc of Embodiment so far. Why I always like the magics of feminine guys!? ._.
I just found it funny that Rufus was reading a book titled "Le Memory". Everything else was pretty predictable. On to the next one.
Some of you guys are being very defensive IMO, If some1 did not like the chapter or how the fight went...don't start saying don't read fairy tail...actually if you can't take the criticism..don't read the forums then. Every1 is entitled of his/her opinion.
1) Hell no I did not like the fight, not because how Gray won, but Rufus magic was awesome & I hoped we could see more from this magic. His magic is sure going in the top 5 magic presented in this Manga.
2) Gray beating Rufus...makes more sense than Natus beating Sting+Rouge...with an attack hardly moved Gildartz a couple steps back
3) I disagree with Mavis. Emotions had nothing to do with anything in this fight. Mavis was wrong, Gray clearly used his head in this battle, which is not the first time he always uses his head in battles (To think and head butt if necessary).
4) Rufus memorize ice magic was no more working with Gray increasing his speed in making shapes. The next thing would any1 think to do is to attack Ice with Fire, but this Ice mage here...took a dragon slayer flame...he can take on some newbie fire.
(Seriously, though, I don't think he was counting in-guild training. Also, I hope he says the same next time he faces Acnologia. )
I am glad Gray stripped, that outfit was tacky as hell.
With Laxus there I predict another victory. They also need a loss for dramatic purposes so I propose Erza/Juvia.

Gray's mention of more powerful flames was predictable, and the fight overall was somewhat unspectacular and rather uneventful. Bit of a letdown, to be honest. Rufus was disappointing. Gray's magic was pretty impressive, so it wasn't a total loss in terms of entertainment. It was good to see Gray's progress. Hopefully the other battles are going to be more tense, and have a bit more going on.
