Ah! A taker!

Here is how I see it might work.

Example:
You claim that Talon is the worst. I claim that
Toadrot is worse.

So I take Talon into the dungeon
and finish the game in 60 minutes. I have proved
that he Talon is better than Toadrot (because Toadrot
has never finished the game) and therefore
I am right. But you take Toadrot into the dungeon
and finish in 59 minutes, proving that Toadrot is
better than Talon and making you the winner.
But I return and finish with Talon in 58 minutes,
making me the winner. But you try again and....

Rules would be very relaxed for this 'negative-
competition'. Save and restart is OK. Playing at
low speed is OK. Resurrect or reincarnate - your
choice.

Training in the prison is NOT allowed - to avoid
cheating by editing the initial savegame. The
savegame and complete set of recordings are
required as documentation. A batchfile to
automatically select the recording option is
probably wise. We can set up a game and
executable so that everyone is using the same
game. And, of course, the 'tick timer' is the
measure of 'best'.

Yeah, that could work ! Bypassing the prison for training is fine by me. I would probably reincarnate the character.

I love the idea of proving that [insert alledged worst character name] is actually "less worse" than the other candidate :mrgreen:

"Look, I told you my character sucked more than yours !"
Balance is the ultimate good

Well, if you are up for it.....

You need to start a new thread - "Worst CSB Champion".

Make your claim in that thread. I will reply and provide
a 'Standard' game that we can use. And I will restate
the rules in that thread. And I will disagree with your
selection and take it upon myself to 'prove' it.

I've done some calculations to determine who the best four Champions will be by the time levels are maxed out. Adding up all of the reincarnated Champions' statistics and then excluding those stats that will eventually equalize (Health and Stamina which should eventually reach 999 for every character and Luck which should eventually equalize due to how it operates), the best four Archmaster Champions are:

1. Buzzzzz
2. Petal
3. Kazai
4. Mantia

Even if one excludes the arguably low-value Anti-Magic statistic, these four still come out on top.
By the same method, the most potent four Dungeon Master Champions are Tiggy, Boris, Gothmog and Nabi.
