I'm of the opinion that it would normally take 2 streets to beat a Meta, 2 meta's to beat an enhanced meta, 2 enhanced meta's to beat a prime meta and 2 prime meta's to beat a Herald.

So something like:
Street = 2
Meta = 3
EM = 5
PM = 9
H = 17

That way, it always takes roughly 2 of the category below to defeat someone in the category above them. Obviously, you have exceptions like Conan who's a street that can beat the occasional EM, but that's the case with all categories. But at least in this way, it would take roughly 2 average medium level characters in one slot to defeat the average medium level character in the slot above them.

2 Streets = 4 points which beats one Meta.
2 Metas = 6 points which beats one EM.
2 EM's = 10 points which beats one PM.
2 PM's = 18 points which beats one H.

Then if you extended the point allowances from a max of 20 to a slightly higher figure (maybe 25), then you could allow for drafting Prep locations and drafting for knowledge. Items like the Infinity Gems I would seriously ban, because in tourney's past, some voters simply auto-win someone with an Infinity Gem, and by the time you get to the semifinals, you can rest assured all you have left is teams with the Infinity Gems. Just a couple thoughts is all.
