#7060840 Avengers: Infinity War

Posted by Kid Gambino on 10 December 2017 - 01:20 PM

That'd be wild. If they do, I want it to become a complete secret with no media coverage spoiling it.

 

I have mixed feelings (mostly positive) about X-Men coming to Marvel, I do want to see Wolverine and Deadpool. Especially a Spider-Man/Deadpool movie that's demanding to be made.

But the anti-mutant agenda always felt oddly out of place in a world where superheroes are largely accepted. Still, crossovers would be swell.

 

The other huge thing I'm excited for is Marvel will have the chance to do Fantastic Four properly. They'll actually get a good movie for once.

 

Oh man, totally forgot about the F4. Yeah, they definitely need a good reboot. The first two F4 movies from the 2000's iirc were meh, while the one that came out a few years ago kinda just came and went, so I'm guessing that one was pretty terrible too. While the F4 are cool and everything, I want to see Dr. Doom in all his villainous glory again, he was a major player in the comics and needs to be in the MCU asap.

#7060409 Mod count [Serious]

Posted by Kid Gambino on 08 December 2017 - 09:37 AM

What makes you think Enguin hasn't studied the Holocaust on his own? 

 

Had the Axis powers won WW2, the "basic research" story would almost certainly be that the Holocaust never happened considering the Nazis' scrambled efforts to burn evidence and cover their tracks once they realized defeat was imminent. Whereas Holocaust denial is currently illegal in 17 countries, it could very well be illegal to reference the Holocaust ever having happened as it's effectively illegal to reference the Armenian Genocide having happened in Turkey. I believe that the Holocaust happened and happened to the extent that's generally cited due to Germany's pent up resentment after their defeat in WW1 and the terms thereof that left their nation impoverished, the resultant scapegoating of Jewish people, and the rest being history. Conversely, I don't believe the events of 9/11 unfolded as reported, and others consider my views on that distasteful when I sincerely believe it was an inside job. The Holocaust is a case where having a different interpretation regarding past historical events is criminalized. All we have to go by is what we read and what we feel to be credible. I can't tell you I have a comprehensive and surefire understanding of events that happened between 72-77 years ago, neither can you and obviously neither can Enguin. 

 

Basic research is not enough to have a comprehensive and surefire understanding of events that happened between 72-77 years ago, of what was exaggerated, what was covered up and what was true. Different people can come to different conclusions about past events when they come across different sources. 

 

Enguin was more pre-occupied with the Holocaust and whether it happened than most people here, and I don't think he brought it up on a repeated basis because he'd never bothered to research the subject and/or thought it was funny, but because the idea of the Holocaust was disturbing to him, he researched it a little too much, and came across dubious sources of which there are many on the internet that he either earnestly believed to be true, found easier to stomach, or a combination of both. From there, he had the strong belief the the Holocaust didn't in fact happen and that it was a fraudulent history written by the winners, an exaggeration of the evils of the other side to justify the actions taken by ours. This is among the most controversial opinions one can have and I'm glad I don't share it. I'd think that you'd have to be pretty disenfranchised and paranoid in general to come to such a conclusion. I think that Enguin expressed this using dark humour because he thought that it wouldn't come off as abrasively as expressing it in earnest, but instead he came off as callous.

 

Given an established framework, "Arbeit macht frei" is a phrase with a loaded history of forced labour and genocide, but for Enguin who actually didn't believe in that established framework it doesn't hold the same weight and that's an important distinction. 

 

At the end of the day, it's still permabanning someone for having the wrong opinion. In this case, it would appear to be a pretty safe and sane thing to do considering how many countries have outlawed Holocaust denial and I can't critique the decision too harshly considering it'd be normal recourse in a forum like this. That said, I do think the juxtaposition of this with throwing your hat in the ring for a fervent eugenicist is selective and I believe that having an open discussion with evidence brought to the table is a much braver and more humane way of going about this than criminalizing opinions held in earnest as if we're bastions of sure and inviolable scripture that to contradict is to be burned at the stake.    

 

While it's nice you went through the effort of typing all of that on enguin's behalf, I think it's going to fall on deaf ears due to people usually having a tendency to believe their eyes rather than what someone else tells them. Speaking purely for myself, as someone who reviews threads pretty much on a daily basis (and rarely posts anymore due to the growing hostility of the site), my perception of enguin's posts, status comments, and just his behavior period reeked of malicious intent and a lack of care. He came off as nothing more than an internet troll and not once did I ever suspect that he could be something other than that. To you and the few, marginal others, he may have been funny, which is subjective, but to claim that he's beneficial to the health and future of the site? I'd have to say no, he's precisely the opposite. If the staff team allowed people with his type of boundary-pushing agenda to continue, the site would undoubtedly descend into chaos and toxicity, and then there would truly be no hope of welcoming newcomers to the site at that point.

 

Long story short: You can talk about what you think his intentions were all you want, but if enguin was half the decent person you claim he is, I'm certain a lot more people would be coming to his defense to speak on his character, rather than those who have been fighting to right some kind of unjustified technicality.




#7059577 Enguin's Ban

Posted by Kid Gambino on 06 December 2017 - 01:44 AM



"Merry Christmas unless you're a jew"

 

This was literally the title he had that helped make him banworthy

 

"Happy Christmas unless you're not a christian" - RIPPERINO, I HAS COMITTED A HATE CRIMEZ

 

I usually try to stay out of these threads due to my lack of longevity on the site, but after what I've seen from enguin, it's hard not to come to the conclusion that his intentions are ill-infested, as it oozes from how he responds and portrays himself on the website. I'm not jewish and I take no offense to what he's done, but that doesn't mean I can't discern right-from-wrong, and the fact that anyone would defend his actions at this point is quite baffling to me, it almost feels like the defenders are playing devil's advocate or have some personal bias towards him to warrant trying to rationalize what's right in front of them. I understand if this was a first offense and you're defending him simply on the fact that he was not given due process, but if he's a repeat-offender who is known for antisemitism, was un-banned to fix the injustice of the staff team not handling his case appropriately, and then he returns just to repeatedly post vague anti-semantic posts again, then I really don't think he's worth defending anymore.  I honestly think he enjoys trying to test how much he can get away with as far as breaking the rules and/or getting on the staff team's nerves, and I don't think that type of person needs to be hanging around the site at all.




#7057760 Avengers: Infinity War

Posted by Kid Gambino on 01 December 2017 - 07:53 AM

I doubt that's Loki stealing the Mind Stone from Vision. Thanos has the Black Order from the Infinity event from 2013, so I believe that was actually Corvus Glaive.

This guy


Oh, I wasn't paying that close attention to the scepter, that's definitely Corvus. Also, upon watching it again I noticed another one of Thanos' goonies, Proxima Midnight, she's the one who throws the spear at Captain America. I can't believe I forgot about the Black Order, good to know they'll be there too.

I forgot about Death.

WAIT
WAITWAITWAITAITWAITAPasdklasl.duaskdjas.ldoaslk

IF TALKS WITH MARVEL AND FOX ARE GOOD
AND DEATH ENDS UP IN INFINITY WAR
DOES THAT MEAN DEADPOOL SHOWS UP IN INFINITY WAR PART 2
AND FALLS IN LOVE WITH DEATH TO DEFEAT THANOS!?


I would love to see Thanos and Deadpool interact on the big screen, hopefully this does come true and we at least see like a secret ending of Part 2 with this happening, or maybe Thanos stepping over into a future Deadpool or X-Men movie. Keep your fingers crossed!

Oh yeah, there is that whole thing between Deadpool, Death, and Thanos in the comics. That'd be interesting. Doesn't Thanos curse Deadpool with immortality at some point or whatever cuz he's jealous or something?


Yeah, Deadpool seduced Lady Death, so Thanos ends up cursing him with immortality out of spite. A weird but hilarious love triangle.

Thanos looks reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally f***ing lame if you ask me. I don't know how to feel about his finalized design for this movie.

I don't think he looks that bad, if anything my only gripe with his showing in the trailer was not enough clips of his infamous smile. I think probably looks bad to people because they're used to his fully armored, unf***wittable-grin, glowy-eyes appearance. I can agree that they definitely should've stuck with that, at least for the trailers, but at the end of the day I'm not that bothered by it.

#7056767 Avengers: Infinity War

Posted by Kid Gambino on 29 November 2017 - 02:28 PM

Only 2 stones?

 

Patience, young padawan. I have a feeling by the end of this movie, he'll have 4/5 of the 6 stones, if not all of them. He has Space and Power, Loki will steal Mind from Vision, Strange will probably lose his Time Stone in combat with Thanos and I'm suspecting Wakanda has the Soul Stone. End of movie or next movie will be him fighting for or no-contest-securing the Reality Stone.

 

So much to talk about with this trailer though, so let's break this down into bullet format!

 

  1. Vision made himself look more human to put the moves on Scarlet Witch, smooth. As we see though, it's not permanent since it shows him back in his original form as Loki is ripping the Mind Stone from his head so not worried about this in the slightest... just hoping him losing the stone doesn't kill him, since they somehow incorporated that into how he came to be iirc.
  2. Romanoff with blonde hair? Okay, sure, kinda weird, but sure.
  3. Thanos looks freaking amazing! No complaints with his cgi. Hopefully this movie will end with him obtaining all the stones and going god mode like he did in the comics. As far as beating him, their plan better be a damn good one, because Thanos is super intelligent, losing with the Infinity Gauntlet fully powered can easily come off as a complete jobber if they don't do it right.
  4. ...is that supposed to be Iron Spider? Either way, he looks SICK AFFFFFFFF. Also, expecting Tony to get a suit upgrade for Part 2 (Extremis at the least, but one of his more OP suits from the comics will probably be better to combat Thanos).
  5. Loki appears to have sided with Thanos. Meh, not surprised. I kinda wish Ronan was still alive though, I feel like we didn't get to see an appropriately badass fight from him, despite GotG being a great movie.
  6. Scarlet Witch better stop jobbing in these movies, or Disney is gonna have to catch my fade. For anyone who doesn't know, Scarlet Witch is universal reality-warper in the comics, and could theoretically solo Thanos by herself, the only thing holding her back is that she's prone to being mentally unstable.
  7. I'm banking on Scarlet Witch and/or Doctor Strange being pivotal to defeating God Mode Thanos, they will probably be the reasons he ends up losing the stones and weakening him enough for the rest of the Avengers to stand a chance.
  8. Lol @ Hulkbuster Iron-Man, sure thing, my guy... actually, I'm glad they included it, just so we can see Thanos smack that around too... the crowd needs to know that Thanos is no joke.
  9. One of the fight scenes is in Wakanda, so that's another reason why I believe the Soul Stone is in Wakanda. Not sure why it's there of all places, though. Guess we'll see in February.
  10. Also MY BOY WAR MACHINE IS BACK IN ACTION LESGOOOOOO.
  11. GotG finally hit the scene at the end of the trailer; I'm expecting them to not play a major role in this movie (I think the producers even said that), and will most likely only do stuff in the last 20mins of the movie, maybe they'll show up to rescue Thor after Thanos smacks him into orbit l0l.
  12. Noted that Ant-Man is also M.I.A. thanks to the comments. I don't really care if he's in the movie or not, but I'm sure he will be, I just don't think they had a good scene to show of him in this trailer (or forgot considering the huge cast, whoops).



#7056481 Go Flip That Card Since You Wan Be a Lil Hardass

Posted by Kid Gambino on 28 November 2017 - 10:00 PM

We didn't have cards, but we had this board with smiley stickers that were essentially the same thing. Also, strange how I only recall this being a thing in the 5th grade, why is that lmao

Posted by Kid Gambino on 28 November 2017 - 08:12 PM

Dark World Traveler isn't gonna like that you stole his fake trap idea... jkjk, this card is different enough and impressive in it's own right. Column-based effects are always welcomed and cool to see for me, especially with the direction the game is headed, and the fact that it's just a simple instance of negation with a Scrap-Iron effect that can end up reshuffling your Spell/Traps to stay hidden is really fascinating. All I can really say is despite the card's lack of complexity, it still feels like a breath of fresh air. Good job!

#7055826 [Written] Spell Parasite

Posted by Kid Gambino on 26 November 2017 - 11:26 PM

Hmmmmmmmmm... a backrow eater/blocker, very nice. For the stipulation, I would just add at the end of the first sentence in parenthesis "your opponent chooses which zone to place this card", pretty cut-and-dry and shouldn't cause any confusion.

Not sure why you felt the need to add the draw effect though, but it's a +1 for both of you so no balancing issues there, just seems out of place and unnecessary. The card is great overall, has a chance being brickable as a lot of decks probably wouldn't care to lose 1 S/T zone, but in the decks that do... well, sucks to be you.

Maybe you could consider removing the "can only control 1" and giving it a cost that lets the opponent self-destroy the parasite, that way you can punish an opponent with multiple copies while granting them additional means to remove it, so it has the chance of being more effective the more you're able to draw? Idk, just a thought.


#7055269 [Leaderboard] D'Sceptyr vs. Dova (Countdown to Calamity) (Cards UP)

Posted by Kid Gambino on 25 November 2017 - 04:26 PM

Ah, a wording technicality. Since my only concern was turning an opponent's monster into a boss Reptile for little to nothing, the card is not as bad as I originally thought, although I believe the unknown-card-maker-at-the-time's intentions were to make it to where they could tribute from anywhere on the field, but that's neither here nor there when speaking on the card's actual functionality.

I'm glad you brought this up as I wasn't aware that there was a difference between "on the field" and "anywhere on the field"; I suppose the game has gotten finicky enough to warrant such a ruling.

I apologize if my previous post was made out (or somehow played a part) to make anyone feel bad, that was not my goal. Dova is an exceptional card maker and this was a very interesting challenge to witness from both participants.

#7054044 [Written] Kaiser Roulette

Posted by Kid Gambino on 20 November 2017 - 01:42 PM

Kaiser Roulette
Continuous Spell Card
Once per turn, at the start of each player's Battle Phase: Roll a six-sided die twice. Neither player can control more cards on the field than the total of the die result; each player must send cards they control to the GY until they control cards equal to or less than the die result. If either of the die rolls a 6, the roll is treated as 0 instead.

This is 200% broken, lmao. Monster board clear AND you completely screw any deck GY-related, with a single card and 1000LP? This card by itself could net such a huge advantage it's disgusting.
