This song was always awesome, but then I heard it live at the recent Video Games Live in San Francisco. Absolutely amazing.

Thank you everyone who participated! As Gaignun said, a lot more solid teams, which meant a lot of good matches. This was extra fun for me as I got to commentate, and I hope people enjoyed that, too.

First post and brackets have been fully updated.

Wait, why all the hate on elemental absorb all of a sudden? Cutting effectiveness of absorb makes that strategy completely worthless. Even 50% is enough to make it pretty darn bad. It's not a dominant strategy whatsoever. You really need AoE (with good damage) to make it worthwhile. AoE means you aren't only healing one person, and good damage (and thus healing) means you can sorta keep up with the opposing team's damage output (turn a 2HKO into a 3HKO at the very least). You really need every unit active for an elemental absorb to be highly effective. Even disabling one unit is enough of a momentum shift, as the ele absorb team is now less likely to heal enough to mitigate the enemy team's damage. Then, another unit on the ele absorb team has to get rid of whatever's disabling their teammate, further reducing their ele absorb capabilities. If enough damage has been sustained during this time, then units that can only do single target healing are stuck healing their teammates instead of attacking the enemy team. Further keep in mind that 2 AoE attacks require near-max MA setups to do good damage, except perfumes/DefUP/MDefUP are still very popular, which makes the ele absorb team less likely to drop enemy units.

Arena is not highly elemental focused. Elemental absorption tactics are something to consider and to look for when making teams, but I don't think any of the top teams would be considered elemental absorb teams. Elemental absorb teams are best against teams that can only do damage (and ideally have low to average damage outputs, aka not strong teams (not counting defensive teams since they don't really care about damage)). Ele absorb teams cannot disrupt enemy teams (aside from KOing them) because they need all their units to perform elemental attacks. These teams are also highly susceptible to disruption, for the same reason - everyone needs to be doing their job, otherwise their position could easily crumble.

I would be fine with Weak being 150% damage instead of 200% though.

I'm sure that's a typo - Salamander should still be at 3 AoE?

20 MP for Fuuton seems a bit steep. Suiton, at 60% of the MP cost, does slightly less damage (actually, on optimized builds that's like 50 less damage, which is decently relevant), but is unevadable. 16 MP for Fuuton would be more reasonable.

I would prefer Bizen Boat (Katana) to keep its stronger 100% Silence proc. The Sinkhole proc is not guaranteed to hit, since melee Katana users will typically have 40 Faith. Less units are affected by Sinkhole, as well. Recall the discussion of how Talk Skill users are vulnerable to Silence, especially since these units usually do not have Silence immunity. Sinkhole does let the Bizen Boat wielder get around Silence protection, but you have to hope they are in position to midcharge a unit. Also, isn't Silence getting a finite duration? That also makes the 100% Silence more manageable.

Genji Helmet... I dunno, both will be useful. I have no preference.

I like the 50% CT 00 proc Crossbow.

Everything else I'm fine with.

I'll do winner's bracket final, and you can do the championship match. Sound good?

If yes, ETA Monday for winner's bracket final.
