...Mr Kano said he believed North Korea was "buying time"...
...said Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang...
so epic!! Vegeta could surpass all the others. if Vegeta wins the tournament, that would make the arc stand out more. the only other one that would make things as interesting if Frieza wins, though of course if they want to continue the canon, better for Vegeta to win. Gohan is only extra popular because Cell saga made him MVP, but the Vegeta playing second fiddle gag really is too cliche. the TOP arc would stand out more with someone other than Goku or Gohan winning.
though even more interesting would be if the timer runs out, with equal sides remaining, but they didnt say if there was a rule to what would happen if it's a draw?
some would request sudden death, while Grand Priest might use that opportunity to eliminate both universes, but then arguments ensue and Zeno sides with the contestants.
HAHAH. What if Dyspo wins...
you know Dyspo is very underrated. he would've killed Hit if there were no rules, so Hit wouldn't have been able to use any ring out tactic to "win" and would be slaughtered before he would have time to adapt and figure out how to counter Dyspo's speed.
Dyspo is also trashing Frieza. although Frieza is very durable, Dyspo even gave SSG Goku trouble. so they aren't some pushover, even a teammate sacrificed themselves cause they know Dyspo is top 3 in their universe. and in this kinda tournament, it just takes one error for Dyspo to be able to ring anyone out.
it's just the plot armor and intelligence nerfbats going on that's causing them to hold back.
like, when Dyspo was dragging Frieza's tail, why not go top speed and just ring them out before they regain balance?
of course the plot is structured in such a way, so logic only plays a role when the plot designers think its convenient or entertaining.
