>>170277641>But this makes the arc pointless.
Not really at all, if they hadn't done it then the universes would still be erased. If Goku and friends sat out this arc then there would be nothing left in existence.
Goku and friends fought hard for the status quo in a sense, however its not status quo. Everyone changed a lot over the tournament, everyone gained a bit of development, they have new goals as well. A lot was gained over the course of the arc even if the result they fought for is just overturning Zeno's whims.>>170277644>the only reason for the stakes of this tournament is because zeno is bored as fuck of watching over all those universes,
He started the tournament on a whim because he got mad at a board game that he was playing with his other self.
