Aw man, they're descending into Arena combat?

Love the characters, but once I realized the story was actually headed toward a tournament I lost some enthusiasm. Every time an action show does a tournament I usually stop watching; it's just too tropey and predictable.
Of course, considering Monty Oum created the storyline, I should have expected a fighting tournament.

If I remember correctly, they talk about "the tournament" in the very first episode
. This is not news, this is not a surprise, and given the track record of the show, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. While I surely can't tell you what to do, I can certainly suggest
that you do the same.

They did, but I never felt like that's what the show was about. I thought I'd was just background information or a setting detail. I'll certainly give the new series a try; Oum demonstrated with Dead Fantasy that he can make a straight fight scene interesting. I'm just hoping it's not a "Match One, Match Two, Match Three, etc." thing.
