Niner or Carter?
« on: February 05, 2011, 12:31:50 AM »
I know there are hundreds of Spartan vs. Commando threads, but I just thought these characters were so similar to each other. Team leader, by-the-book, rarely improvise, ect.

Now, this is assuming they only have their standard weapons, plus one more weapon of your choice - but no Spartan lasers, Wookiee homing launchers, or Spartan missile launchers. Who do you think?

What do we think about what? If they would make a great team? Sure.
 
Who would win in a fight?

And your absolutely right, we DO have plenty of these threads. So don't be suprised if you get little in way of replies.
The  purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

Drake and I agreed on something. Somebody get the camera out to capture the moment.

Right. I meant fight, but...that's okay if I don't get too many replies.

I propose a boycott on vs. topics on the grounds they are presumptuous.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

The problem with VS things like these, like with two guys like Niner and Carter, is there's 50 million different ways that either of them could win.  Might be wrong here since I only have a so-so knowledge of Halo stuff, but Spartan 3s like Carter are basically just really tough people with really good armor/weapons.  Which is basically like any other Republic commando, Niner included.  It's not like Master Chief VS Niner, where (as much as I love Niner) the Chief would win 99.99% guaranteed.  And it's not like Master Chief VS Galen Marek where (as tough and awesome as Chief is) there's no way he could win against Starkiller's powers.

They're normal guys so pretty much anything could happen.  Either one could get off a lucky shot in the first 2 seconds, the fight could go on for hours until both are out of all ammo and it turns into a melee fight.  Even then, maybe Carter gets Niner in a choke hold and wins, or Niner just gets pissed enough that he beats Carter to death with punches.  I'm not really against VS topics, aside from the ridiculous amount of dumb arguing and crap, but you can't really gauge people like this, and there's too many "Well maybe he did..." or "But what if he..." for normals.

It reveals the bias of the one arguing, so it's not necessarily balanced.

Agreed on all points. And...

I propose a boycott on vs. topics on the grounds they are presumptuous.

I'll second that.

WAIT WAIT WAIT!!!!!!

Before we get rid of ALL the VS threads I purpose ONE MORE......SEAN vs Carter, Niner, Boss, AND John 117.

Sean will roll in with M4 and throw a flash bang and then a frag grenade. As he steps in the room he sweeps left to right and engages the dazed Clones with hammer pairs to the head. As he watches their heads explode into red mist he slides up to Carter and sticks a Grayman Ground Pounder in at the neck of Carter's suit and feels the gush of hot blood flowing across the blade. As John-117 backs up into a corner in fear Sean steps up to him and smiles......."I do this for real dude! I'm the most ELITE guy you'll ever meet....a US Marine." he says as he rips off John's helmet and gives him a nose tweek......and then leaves.

That's ONE version: in the other version... Sean walks into the room. Round house kicks them all at the same time with one kick, and their faces start melting Indiana Jones style.

That was the best VS showdown I've ever seen.

He then splatters to infinitesimal particals of Sean-colored paste as Chuck Norris sends him a subtle reminder.

I think we need a "Sean vs Chuck Norris" topic now...


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

We seem to be doing a piss-poor job boycotting this topic anyway.
