    Gabriel Belmont over Kratos*

  7. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 11:02 am -      #7

    Gabriel Belmont vs Kratos slipped my mind, but Pit over Kratos in Pit vs Kratos makes sense!

  8. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 11:05 am -      #8

    Unless Post-NJO Luke was too much, Luke vs Dante could be awardable in Luke’s favor.

  9. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 11:28 am -      #9

    Harry Dresden over Shang Tsung in Dresden vs Shang Tsung?

  10. itcheyness May 12, 2013 at 12:21 pm -      #10

    Doomsday need his over the Hulk.

  11. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 12:50 pm -      #11

    Can we at least get an answer on what the heck happened to Thor vs Hulk? It’s name is ripped off. We can’t comment. It was well debated, and the conclusion that Thor was the winner came swiftly enough that we were asking for a FPA before it was removed from that week’s spotlight. It was a posterchild for what deserves an Award and now it appears to have been out right murdered by a higher up.

    So.. so explain? Please?

    I nominate that one for an award.

  12. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 1:00 pm -      #12

    @Lizard God at #11

    I too can agree to that with Thor vs the Hulk, but if that’s not gonna get awarded then may we please get Goku vs Itachi Uchiha name-ripped since the odds of Rand vs Rahl getting name-ripped are next to nil?

  13. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 1:09 pm -      #13

    I don’t support name ripping at all. It’s dumb. It literally serves no point at all besides censorship. Something which is indefensible.

  14. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 1:14 pm -      #14

    No one can reasonably justify or glorify in good taste the gatherings of Trolls either, which unless its to flip the bird at them is not what anyone with two working brain cells would want either.

    I won’t deny I’m rather fed up with Troll onslaughts lately because to do that would be folly.

    Did I forget to mention that we miss AHEM(All Hail Emperor Murtagh) right now, along with others such as Skrunks, Mazrim and Pandemic?

    What about Harry Dresden vs Eragon with Harry Dresden beating Eragon?

  15. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 1:20 pm -      #15

    yeah…I second us finally getting an explanation on Thor vs Hulk’s name being removed and thread locked.
    We’ve Pm’d you (or at least I have) asked in question threads, and still no response, as site patrons who worked hard debating and deciding that match we should at least be told why it was locked.

  16. Dassadec May 12, 2013 at 1:25 pm -      #16

    Percy Jackson over Kratos
    Sora over Link
    Toothless over Saphira
    Rand over Richard

  17. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 1:30 pm -      #17

    @Dassadec at #16

    Don’t forget about Bayonetta vs Dante with Bayo beating Dante!

  18. Dassadec May 12, 2013 at 1:44 pm -      #18

    @ cross
    I didn’t participate at all in that so I don’t really have anything to say about it

  19. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 1:49 pm -      #19

    “No one can reasonably justify or glorify in good taste the gatherings of Trolls either, which unless its to flip the bird at them is not what anyone with two working brain cells would want either.”

    Unless a nonsense match is about to get on the top ten, or a match is about to get on the top ten due to nonsense, I do not support locking a thread.

    In instances of a match being intentionally bumped to get it a higher position, I also support locking it, such as we saw with a match the literally was at the number one spot until Admin did something about it.

    Almost never do I support the stripping of a name, locking the thread, and completely burying it so that it can’t be found, coupled with a total lack of response to any inquiries about it. I would -like- that to happen, sure, to dumb matches like Cartoon Network Civil War.. but I would never support it, and would in fact argue for its reinstatement if it happened. Why? Because it’s wrong to do that to people. It’s wrong to do that on a website which makes money based on the concept of free and open speech between parties across the globe where any idea can be exchanged. Where if I say Fuck You, or use the word Nigger, I’m not ignored, but rightly countered by intelligent debate. We are free and open to have a complete clashing of our minds, and the best ideas, the best arguments, the swiftest and most flexible minds win. Regardless of anything but the actual merit of what is being written down.

    That is what debate sites represent to me.. So I will NEVER support what is essentially the murder of a debate, even over fictional characters. It’s why I got so angry when the Harry Potter vs Space Marine match got shut down so quickly out of sheer spite and rage by the Harry Potter fans. There was the potential for further discussion but there was a fucking hissy fit and suddenly the match couldn’t be touched. The End. No More. It was one side whining until all were forced to be silenced by the powers that be just to appease them. That is just as irresponsible as shutting down anti-islam statements because the muslims so often cry foul the moment any vocal dissent is made.

    So no. I don’t support the name stripping, locking, and burying of a match. Not even if it’s filled with nasty trolls. If there’s something left to be discussed on topic then so be it. Discuss it and ignore the trolls. If it gets bumped high enough that it begins to achieve a rank it doesn’t deserve, then contact admin to do some post cleaning if their posts are primarily just bumps and quick jabs…

    Otherwise. LEAVE THE MATCH ALONE and DO NOT petition Admin to kill it.

  20. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 1:56 pm -      #20

    @Dassadec at #18

    Fair enough.

    Here’s hoping the Showcase feature returns to factpile, agreed?

    Also I 3rd us getting explainations for what happened with Thor vs Hulk, anyone else feels likewise?

    OOC: Have you read on Rosario + Vampire so far?

  21. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 2:04 pm -      #21

    Well, I made a monumental post.. and Factpile ate it. -sighs-

    It was one of my better ones too no less.. anyways. Summary. I don’t care what trolls are on it, Cross, I still don’t support it. You have no moral ground to stand on concerning what you want to have done. Especially when lesser measures would work just as well. You have a history of over-reacting to stuff like that as it is, such as getting another match locked that you didn’t like.

    So, take a step back, take a deep breath, and consider what you’re saying. And know that I still won’t support the equivalent of decapitating and burying a match the way Thor vs Hulk was.

  22. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 2:10 pm -      #22

    the thing is you can type Thor vs Hulk and the match shows up just no name to it. so it’s findable but can’t do anything with it.

  23. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 2:14 pm -      #23

    *shakes head slowly*

    Would it have killed you to consider the idea of new blood pouring to the site and being allowed to pour in with welcome arms?

    Yeah last year was just horrid in general I will not lie, but in the spirit of what one of the heads of site proposed, I propose to you in kind to take a deep breath and read this bit here!

    Seeing as how people may go against the spirit of what was said in the link before the Word itself gets violated in turn, it was in the spirit of moving forward that I propose the matter.

    Unless of course you find Star Wars vs Tenchi Muyo to suddenly be a good idea in which case, try me, but I digress.

    In the spirit of moving forward, don’t we have a fight with Master Asia vs Kharn the Betrayer to suggest up to the site to make dang sure it gets posted?

  24. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 2:15 pm -      #24

    Yay it got posted! *happy dance time* I don’t -often- show my serious side here, and I’m happy that it passed through whatever lag or moderation it was subjected to. I feel that is one of my better posts, if not my best post, in my history here on the ‘pile.

  25. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 2:17 pm -      #25


    One of the sentences was meant to be much smaller than normal size but apparently it doesn’t work in here.

    Let me try again:

    Is it working, yet?

    How about now?

  26. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 2:20 pm -      #26


  27. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 2:21 pm -      #27

    @Lizard God

    As long as its not spitejacking a non-hostile thread, its cool.

    Also I don’t see any reason to give a shit as to whether or not you deserve the scrutiny that VunderGuy may have aimed at you, what I would give a shit about is if you believe in the intentional spirit to keep moving forward.

    I am willing to follow and abide by that spirit even if it kills me, the question is: Are you?

  28. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 2:23 pm -      #28

    Frankly, I don’t care about Mata’s problems on the forum. If the fighting is getting to the point that it’s so bad that the moderator no longer has enough time to even moderate then there may well be a problem.. but ultimately if I were him I’d just give up being a moderator, let some other person do it, and do whatever I want on the forums. He doesn’t have the time to do it as well as he should with a group that isn’t acting mature enough to deserve one who will as it is. Whatever is going on on the topia, it’s not my concern. I don’t participate in it. I participate here. I only report people to admin if they begin to threaten physical violence, or do something “sexual.” Or if they outright come off as being a crazy who should have an eye kept on.. just in case.

    The ‘pile is a place of open debate. There should be no casual blocking, locking, or anything else. Not if integrity is important.

  29. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 2:23 pm -      #29

    @Admiral at #26

    I’m to withhold any further in-depth responses to the Lizard God unless I am dang sure he’s read post #23’s link.

    In the meantime I shall go and check for more award-worthy fights going on, as well as any fights that need a factpile showcase.

  30. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 2:25 pm -      #30

    we may able to get Thor dat award afterall.

  31. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 2:27 pm -      #31

    “I am willing to follow and abide by that spirit even if it kills me, the question is: Are you?”

    It depends on my mood. Sometimes, I may be in the mood for a little shit slinging. I’m sure you’ve seen me do it before. I come here to -play-, not be -serious-, even when I am debating on serious topics. I normally try to make it clear when I am dropping the mask of fun to talk in a serious manner because of this. Ultimately, though, I feel I am an individual who, even after a bit of mud throwing, wants to keep moving things forward in a debate.

  32. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 2:32 pm -      #32

    A lot of what happens in the Topia unfortunately affects quite a lot on what happens here, so if anyone has Dark Secrets to hide they get alluded upon on the main site and if anyone has Skeletons in the closet in the topia, they get shown here too.

    All-in-all, I don’t trust either of us to call the shots around the site and if I trust anyone, it would be the Admiral really but even I know he can
    make mistakes.

    2011-2012 was just a mess all around,
    why else would the site have been exposed
    to more trolls than it would have ended?

    Its like the place has become a Wasteland
    with no representations of what’s Divine or Holy and it doesn’t even have the motive of
    Atheism being all over the place.

    That’s how desolate its starting to seem
    at the moment as most of the mods
    are no longer attending the site proper.

    Anything to say against the matter outright
    that isn’t in a constructive manner,
    I may have to point to you Super Dimentio vs Overlord Zetta,
    which I facepalmed on suggesting.

    We only just started to wake up from a
    very bad nightmare, if the site is to survive
    it must wake up completely.

    The first step is to get explaining
    for what happened with Thor vs The Hulk.
    The other steps are to be determined soon.

  33. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 2:39 pm -      #33

    “we may able to get Thor dat award afterall.”

    Ultimately, I don’t know if that match is worth it. All of the prominent debating concerning Hulk and Thor are on a different match. Sure, Thor wins, and sure, if properly debated the match would be worthy of an award.. but as it is, there’s only 25 posts on that match. Arbitrarily flooding that match with +1 for Thor posts would seem to me petty and any FPA that is achieve for it would seem unwarranted, unworthy, and a pale replacement for what Thor vs Hulk should have gotten. An Award thrown away for the sake of appeasing the pro-Thor crowd just so they can have their little pixel stamp of approval on a match because they won’t stop until they get SOMETHING after the lockdown of the last debate, dammit. That’s sort of how I’d feel about it, to be honest. I would like to continue pushing, for now at least, for answers concerning Thor vs Hulk before we actively revive another match for the purpose of it being an expy.

  34. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 2:40 pm -      #34

    actually I was thinking of just starting up the debate again and hopefully getting debate.

  35. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 2:41 pm -      #35

    @Lizard God at #31

    Thank you, but Promise me this simple thing:
    Don’t ever Spitejack Galacta Knight vs Ghirahim or any fight like it EVER again, got that!???

    Failure to abide by either the content or spirit of this request will result in the Tau Empire vs
    Original!-Timeline Jurai Empire with Kami!-Tenchi to answer upon, or Original!-Tenchi Masaki or Z vs all Chaos Space Marine Legions,
    All Chaos Primarchs allowed, whichever is the
    less meaner of the two,
    and for good measure,
    Add the Decepticons on the less meaner
    option to that list.

    I have ways of making sure I go far,
    They say words to the effect of,’Speak softly,
    Carry a Big Stick and you will go far,’
    Which were codified but not originating
    from Teddy Roosevelt, I intend to abide
    by the spirit of those words if necessary.

    Your word is all that’s needed, I’ll abide by
    mine or my account is forfeit.
    My oath is that I will not take matters into
    my own hands just for the hells of it unless
    its the right thing to do,

    I stick with this belief.

  36. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 2:41 pm -      #36

    I agree to keep pushing to know what happened to it though.

  37. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 2:43 pm -      #37

    “All-in-all, I don’t trust either of us to call the shots around the site and if I trust anyone, it would be the Admiral really but even I know he can
    make mistakes.”

    Everyone makes mistakes, but admin has been doing a good job. Some people are naturally better suited for things like running a website. I think Admin is one of them. I would not be able to run the site.

    To someone who doesn’t care about the social games being played on the topia, the site seems just fine to me, and is still quite popular, occasionally bringing new people in even as we lose old guards. Its use of a vs picture in EVERY single match was a great idea from the start, and the new factpile youtube page will only help it grow in popularity.

    Your view of the site I think is overly grim.

  38. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 2:44 pm -      #38

    I’m pretty sure that I’ve never spitejacked a match.

  39. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 2:47 pm -      #39

    @Admiral at #34

    Good luck, I’ll help in any way I can do this.

    @Everyone else

    I am also a believer in Carrying an Equally Big Carrot if this is of any comfort.

    Mainly because I want to make a dang fine point that I am not Mike Rahl nor am I anyone worse.

    I will accept Constructive Criticism but
    I am not so Brain-dead as to be unable
    to tell the difference between Constructive
    Criticism and Outright Flaming, do the latter
    and I’ll happily scrutinize the hell out of you
    just because I can.
    Which would be lucky for you if that’s the least of your worries.

  40. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 3:02 pm -      #40

    @Lizard God at #37

    If it makes you feel any better with however small a set of comforts those would be, they’re surprisingly more hopeful than Officer Negative Zero’s or VunderGuy’s own, even the former would lampshade the fact to me in respect.

    When a fight like Hawke vs Haseo got spitejacked and I made it clear I was willing to take criticism even though I asked for help from fellow fight suggestors, I even went the extra 12 miles to ask the Lord General of the site for help but I felt harshly betrayed and punished for my efforts, yeah I have every right to be a Cynical Hardass, or at least take the view of one.
    (It goes double when one must note how Officer NZ got conspired against and instead of certifications of being banned for mostly legitimate principle-related reasons it was mostly Conspiracy-hax that was the fuel behind it.
    Not like I’d condone the fact he got banned on the topia to begin with and I’m practicing my right to Free Speech, but c’mon!)

    I’d rather not get started on the stupidity that’s been happening all the way until May of this year, less horrific in scale compared to last year but still pretty atrocious to warrant a harsh outlook.

    Maybe I might see less of a need for Hardassery when Post-NJO Luke vs. Original!-Tenchi Masaki or Universe!-Tenchi Masaki vs. Pre-Endor Luke gets posted, or even better Original!-Tenchi Masaki(Post-OVA 3 incarnations but no Kami Form) vs. 616 Dr. Strange(As Sorcerer Supreme but no Eternity Infusements allowed) gets on site.

    Also I never said you’d be better-suited to run the site overall, be a potential moderator perhaps but the odds of that are as likely as MessMaker or the Admiral taking the task.
    Which is to say its anyone’s game frankly.

    True, the VMA did mention to bring
    pictures on the OPs, I’ll always be glad for that.

    At #38:

    Please try your dangdest to tell that to Galacta Knight vs Ghirahim and the people who suggested that match-up, then pray onwards they’ll believe you instead of giving you the cold shoulder along with ‘Talk to the hand because the ears don’t wanna hear it’, and then get back to me on it.

    If you find this part of the comment remotely harsh in any way, then with all due respect in this case, the harshness fits the crime and in the spirit of moving forward, best to take it like a man, or in this case take it like a god just as long
    as the response is not akin to an Unkillable Teenager or a Divine Mobster of sorts of course.

  41. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 3:29 pm -      #41

    One more thing before I carry on with that search of mine like a good little citizen* and I forget what I mean to say:

    Happy Mother’s Day Week to all!

    1.) (Good does not Automatically Equal Nice and this month will not see much niceness from me at this time, if you have patience to spare I suggest you use it with care!)

  42. Gluttonous-Behemoth May 12, 2013 at 3:58 pm -      #42

    Cross, you still have some eyes on you for the whole HP vs SM incident. I’m glad you have your heart in the right place, but as Sauro said, you do kind of lean towards knee jerk reactions.

  43. BC May 12, 2013 at 4:23 pm -      #43

    “ I don’t support name ripping at all. It’s dumb. It literally serves no point at all besides censorship. Something which is indefensible. “

    I strongly agree with that.

    “ No one can reasonably justify or glorify in good taste the gatherings of Trolls either, which unless its to flip the bird at them is not what anyone with two working brain cells would want either. “

    Except that it gives the trolls a new trump weapon. If a match is not going their way they just start trolling it hard til it gets ripped. Kind of a Pyrrhic victory for them that perverts the whole purpose of debate sites like this. Getting rid of the trolls if they get too obnoxious like the Admin mentions in that link in #23 would be more effective and less gameable than ripping the threads.

  44. Aelfinn May 12, 2013 at 4:27 pm -      #44

    Wait, a thread was locked and name-ripped? Was there something going on in it? Were there massive amounts of trolls? Stupidity? Ass-holes? Not even Superman vs. Goku or the CN Civil War was name-ripped. Does anyone have an idea why this happened?

  45. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 4:30 pm -      #45

    it was Thor vs Hulk. No trolling or anything.

  46. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 4:31 pm -      #46

    @Master Sarge

    As ever, no shits are given and the feeling may as well be mutual for the fact that Officer NZ got banned from the topia the first time around, if not roughly 5 times more so if I gotta be frank.

    There are things I’d happily give a Shit over, but I’m afraid that’s not one of them so yeah. 😀

    Whatever harshness I say in #40 over Ghirahim vs Galacta Knight isn’t to be taken back in the slightest bit since too much of it is justified, so everyone else will do me a favor and accept that fact.

    The fact that you forgot about Hawke vs Haseo actually disgusts me, so do me a favor, for every time you mention Jackassery fuel instead of mentioning Hawke vs Haseo, you pretty much owe me 5 bucks to help me suggest any fight I’m penning that I’d have in mind in the future.
    Do it 10 times over and you may as well suggest Original!-Tenchi Masaki vs. Grandmaster(Post-NJO) Luke Skywalker and get the matter over with.

    Is the above harsh in any way?

    Is it justified and long overdue?
    I’d say so. 😈

  47. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 4:36 pm -      #47

    @BC at #43

    If its a case of Last Resort, I can deal with that.

    Laying vicious smackdowns upon them in threads meant to draw them out like a Black hole where they wind up dead on the other hand could go better, maybe.

    Or is this the Twisted Sociopathic Sicko in me talking?
    Ah well. 😈

    @Councilor Aelfinn at #44

    To be fair, the first half of the Cartoon Network Civil War Is Badassitude Incarnate, the 2nd half not-so-much and I will agree to this.

    @Admiral at #45

    I feel ashamed. 🙁

  48. Aelfinn May 12, 2013 at 5:07 pm -      #48

    I figured it out.

    It was obviously a move made against 1Negative Zero, as 1Negative Zero was the publisher of Hulk vs. Thor.

    Now, this normally wouldn’t prove anything, but 1Negative Zero also published Predators vs Terminators. Predators vs Terminators was also locked AND name-ripped.

    Strangely enough, both of the matches are Factpile Showcases, but the rest of the Showcases are fine.

    I don’t know what the underlying motivation was, though, I’m not that great of a detective.

    so Admin locked several matches posted by him that were reposted by Mata, and stole a match from his site? (I’m assuming that he and Negative Zero are one and the same)

  50. Negative Zero May 12, 2013 at 5:20 pm -      #50

    Wait….I never suggested Hulk vs Thor.


  51. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 5:37 pm -      #51

    not suggested, posted, like Hitman and Akuma do sometimes. or is 1Negative Zero someone else?

  52. Aelfinn May 12, 2013 at 5:42 pm -      #52

    “is 1Negative Zero someone else?”

    I believe that is the case.

  53. Negative Zero May 12, 2013 at 5:46 pm -      #53

    I think 1Negative Zero was what I changed my name too once when I lost the email address and password to my old original account, but never posted with it.

    I wonder how I suddenly ended up publishing matches I had nothing to do with, with an account name I never used?

    Probably admin stole it to “prove a point” like he stole Draco’s match. Or maybe one of my yandre fangirls hacked it to “stick it to me” or something.

    But whatever. From now on, whenever I’m made to look bad, I should go and donate sperm and see how many kids I can have in 9 months. It’ll be an interesting game, to say the least.

  54. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 6:05 pm -      #54

    @Councilor Aelfinn

    Well if it helps, you’re sort of more Badass than the Lizard God is sometimes. *shrugs*

    Although now I feel worried about everyone else’s well-being and I leave it to everyone else to guess the order of whom I’d worry about in concern in this thread particularly. 🙁

    What is it with me and switching from honest concerns to Grim Hyper-Harshness and Vice-versa these days?

    I’m surprised Mordor vs Silent Hill wasn’t thought about by Pandemic, I’m sure he’d appreciate a match like that.

  55. Gluttonous-Behemoth May 12, 2013 at 6:20 pm -      #55

    New Match, Sauroposeidon versus Aelfinn for the hand of Commander Cross.

  56. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 6:24 pm -      #56

    @Master Sarge

    Surely you jest, I don’t swing that way but I might know of comrades who might.
    (Not from factpile’s mainland of course but I digress…again!)

    Why not a match-up for guys who can concoct more Absurd ideas for matches in a battle royale to see whose sets of ideas are more flat-out Absurd?

  57. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 6:40 pm -      #57

    well Thor vs Hulk was posted in 2009 originally,
    Predators vs Terminators was 2010.
    I don’t know if the feud between you and Admin was going on in February 2009, the showcases were reposted by Mata in 2012 though.

  58. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 6:43 pm -      #58

    “I don’t know what the underlying motivation was, though, I’m not that great of a detective.”

    “I wonder how I suddenly ended up publishing matches I had nothing to do with, with an account name I never used?”

    The social politics that go on the scenes are beyond my interest level, but as they now may be affecting me, I do have to participate on some level I suppose.

    The hell is going on? I want answers now more than ever before.

  59. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 6:43 pm -      #59

    behind the scenes, rather.

  60. admin May 12, 2013 at 6:44 pm -      #60

    A few things:

    For whatever reason, Akismet is placing more comments into moderation. Not sure why but wanted to let all of you know that I am looking into that so I can see what’s causing it.

    Feature match – That was something that Mata took care of. Since he’s had less time to handle the administration of deciding what posts gets featured, it hasn’t got the attention it did in the past. Hopefully it comes back, we will see.

    Locking of Thor Vs Hulk. Can’t recall why that happened, but something caused it as it’s one of the last things I ever want to do for any post on this site.

    To the match I stole. I saw somewhere that NZ has some site very similar to FP. Saw a match and as a test wanted to see how much better FP would do with the same match posted and how many more comments it would get. Was also testing something else but no one here cares about that stuff.

  61. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 6:48 pm -      #61

    @Lizard God

    Took you long enough to wake up, its almost as if the VMAs on the topia serve as a sort of Pseudo-News Reports cast if said Reporters aren’t hired by corrupt nutcases most of the time, nor is anyone hiding anything without good reason either.

  62. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 6:57 pm -      #62

    Okay, not quite enough content to answer all the questions of what’s going on behind the scenes but this brings contentment for now.

    Is Thor vs Hulk to be awarded still, or is that match-up suddenly lacking in some areas?

    What about Goku Over Itachi in Goku vs Itachi?

    Also are people allowed to make a vote or verdict if the match suggestor doesn’t show up on the match?

    The match suggestor for Star Wars vs Dragon Ball Z didn’t appear, mind appointing Judge AkumaTh or Judge Hitman to that thread to check up on matters?
    I’d personally agree that for later on both sides should get Composite Era, but for now we went with a set of eras for both sides to start things out.

    Post-Endor to Legacy for Star Wars, and Frieza Saga-Buu Saga for Dragon Ball Z but anyone from Classic Dragon Ball not confirmed to be Permanently Deceased of Natural Causes are allowed.

    Potentially it means anything from before Post-Endor that isn’t confirmed to be Destroyed by Post-Endor Star Wars beginning may also be allowed, such as the likes of HK-47’s involvement for instance.

    Revitalization permitted?

    What about the ShowCase feature?

  63. GuardianAngel1911 Super Sayian god May 12, 2013 at 6:59 pm -      #63

    “Locking of Thor Vs Hulk. Can’t recall why that happened, but something caused it as it’s one of the last things I ever want to do for any post on this site.”

    wonder what the cause was then since there was no trolling or lack of civility aside from a very brief spat about Marvel Godzilla and that was put to rest very quickly.
    Very strange indeed. Though I’m curious if there is a way to..unlock it?

  64. admin May 12, 2013 at 7:06 pm -      #64

    Of course I can unlock it. I’ll check a few things first to see if I can learn why it got locked in the first place.

  65. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 7:06 pm -      #65

    I’d be all for Thor vs Hulk getting unlocked or a Rematch being done if it means any good gets accomplishments.

    1+ if there’s anything we can do, also here’s hoping that if necessary, we can consider Celebrity DeathMatch vs Deadliest Warrior in a universe war or something.

  66. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 7:10 pm -      #66

    Between Percy vs Kratos getting an award or Thor vs Hulk getting unlocked, I believe in doing the right thing no matter what as I noted earlier in the thread, so 1+ for Thor vs Hulk getting unlocked?

  67. Sauroposeidon May 12, 2013 at 7:13 pm -      #67

    “Took you long enough to wake up,”

    Girlfriend wanted to play borderlands. I sort of took a rain check last night and crashed early, so I jumped at the chance when it was offered. I’ll probably be playing it again in a few hours no less.. which reminds me. I wonder if Outrider vs Warthog would be a cool match. We were just playing with the Warthog the other night when she opened her copy of Halo 4. My arrogance of Halo being a game that is below me sort of melted some when I saw how much fun the Warthog looked.

    @ ADMIN

    “Locking of Thor Vs Hulk. Can’t recall why that happened, but something caused it as it’s one of the last things I ever want to do for any post on this site.”

    Are you sure you didn’t get it mixed up with some other fight? It was going -so- smoothly. We were all ready to get it an Award, with a fair number of us supporting Thor.. and I honestly can’t remember if Hulk had even a single supporter. The closest thing I can recall with any tension was where we had to smooth out details concerning the “state” of Marvel’s Godzilla, briefly.. but we went back on track pretty quick.

    So in summary. no flaming. virtually no derailing. complete support for the winner. we were even quick about it because I wanted to get Thor the award before it left the spotlight.

    Whatever reasons you had before, it seems gone and pointless now. Is it possible to reinstate the match because it really, really does deserve the award. It’s been unfairly treated as far as I can observe.

  68. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 7:23 pm -      #68

    If not unlock and/or awarding Thor vs Hulk, could you at least award Goku vs Itachi with Goku walking out with the Award of Survival?

    Also what may say you to Goku vs Luke Skywalker for that matter on the site?
    That is one fight on the site that’s long overdue if anyone asks me.

    @Lizard God

    I’ll buy that bit of content you’d be willing to share as being enough for contentment.
    For now…

    Fair to warn you, hide any dark secrets from me and you’ll find I’ll be eager to find out how Unkillable/Nigh-unkillable you really are. 😈
    Just kidding!

    But seriously, don’t try anything sadistically funny for the hells of it or I’ll know!!!

  69. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 7:25 pm -      #69

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I ought to resume fights to nominate for Showcasing, so why not Ghirahim vs Zant or something?

    Or an earlier Ganondorf-related fight like Harry Dresden vs Ganondorf for that matter?

  70. Hermit May 12, 2013 at 8:34 pm -      #70

    Harry Potter in Harry Potter vs Twilight
    Terran Dominion, Imperium of Man, Peacekeepers, UNSC, and Galactic Empire for their victory against the Tyranids, Zerg, and Flood
    Samurai Jack in Samurai Jack vs Link.

  71. Negative Zero May 12, 2013 at 8:44 pm -      #71

    “Saw a match and as a test wanted to see how much better FP would do with the same match posted and how many more comments it would get.”
    How very mature of you. My site has a fraction of the people that post here. OF FUCKING COURSE this site will give it more traffic.

  72. ZomBardian97 May 12, 2013 at 8:58 pm -      #72

    Terran Dominion, Imperium of Man, Peacekeepers, UNSC, Goa’uld, and Galactic Empire vs Zerg, Tyranids, and Flood

    Luke Skywalker over Kharn(Seriously, needs an award!)


    Solid Snake over Winter Soldier.

    Wait, Terminators vs Predators is locked?

  73. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 8:58 pm -      #73

    @Lieutenant at #70

    I 2nd the former to be definite in terms of a match one must provide an award for!

    I can’t believe I forgot about that one.

    For that I will not need to rush out a universe fight with FullMetal Alchemist and instead I will ask for your aid soon.

  74. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 9:02 pm -      #74

    Of course Major ZomB, Terminators vs Predators is locked for who the hells know why, because I sure don’t.

    I think I might have already noted on Skywalker vs Kharn with Luke walking out in Victory, correct me if I’m wrong though you’re more than welcome as my fellow guest.

    I’ll look for more fights in need of awards if this helps.

  75. Kyuuketsuki May 12, 2013 at 10:04 pm -      #75

    Kain and Raziel over Link and Ganondorf I believe

  76. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 10:09 pm -      #76

    @Kyuuketsuki at #75

    Are you sure that Fat Lady was singing?

    @Everyone else

    You know what?
    The Lizard God’s post at #18 was right.
    I should help Sadot06 with his project because that is the exact spirit behind his words, its for his Birthday so I’m sure he won’t mind. ^_^

  77. Kyuuketsuki May 12, 2013 at 10:15 pm -      #77

    I do believe so, we got 3 votes in the end and the thread pretty much died and was summed up by somebody so I don’t think im jumping the proverbial Gun.

  78. Commander Cross May 12, 2013 at 10:30 pm -      #78

    @Kyuu at #77

    I agreed with what the Lizard God said, or more like I agreed with the Spirit behind the words.

    My post at #76 shows how I will abide by that spirit.

  79. Shgon Dunstan May 12, 2013 at 11:45 pm -      #79


    If you could also take a look at “Predators vs Terminators” that would be great too.

    I remember when it came up on the “Feature match” and there wasn’t any flaming or trolling or anything, the closest it had to a problem was somewhat unclear victory conditions(whether the Predators had to kill only a few Terminators(something they could do in their sleep) or all the Terminators(something they couldn’t even hope to do with the numbers the thread gave them)).

    You sure the “Feature match” thing wasn’t just glitchy, and making threads lock themselves?

  80. Masonicon May 12, 2013 at 11:53 pm -      #80

    how about these battle scenarios:

    Peter Petrelli vs Mario, Sonic, and Alicorn Twilight Sparkle

    Apocalymon vs Chaos Gods vs Galactus vs C’Tan Gods

    CTF: Batman vs Captain America vs ATT Robin vs Cassandra Cain Batgirl vs Taskmaster vs Adam Jensen vs Point Man vs Agent 47

    Monica Dawson running a Gauntlet

    and so on

  81. Commander Cross May 13, 2013 at 12:05 am -      #81

    @Masonicon at #80

    Suggest these please?

    Also, when can we expect word on another Tenchi Muyo-related match-up to be posted on the site?

  82. Jedah Dohma May 13, 2013 at 12:39 am -      #82

    *reads thread*

    lol @ Crybaby Cocksucker trying to be a badass and threaten people

    Talk about trying too hard

  83. Draco May 13, 2013 at 1:37 am -      #83

    you didn’t have to outright *steal* my match and not give credit to its creator… it wasn’t credited till I had pointed out that it was mine. then when I asked why I got zip till now…
    it was a low blow…

  84. Draco May 13, 2013 at 1:39 am -      #84

    *just for clarification i use the word ‘steal’ lightly

  85. Commander Cross May 13, 2013 at 10:29 am -      #85

    @Lizard God and Councilor Aelfinn

    If you two wish to continue this conversation in-depth, might I suggest we find a way to carry it out via e-mail or somewhere else that’s more secure?

    Mainly so we don’t have to deal with hypocrites, nutcases, wankers, other such idiots and even grimmer-minded folks out there who are already losing faith in the site?

    Failure to respond will leave me to believe that the owner of #81 must have been in the closet of skeletons with the Inglish Effect to infect his vocabulary but good, either that or he’s pussyfooting and I might not be a saint on the latter or accusations either.

    Not a Saint in the modern sense of the word either at least, the Original sense of the word is to have a dead body that isn’t actually destroyed for some reason or another.
    A Saint in the Modern sense of the word is someone who is so nice that flowers and daffodils tend to grow around their surroundings not from any Supernatural Power, but just because they are there.

  86. Sauroposeidon May 13, 2013 at 1:14 pm -      #86

    I don’t believe further discussion is required. I’ve said what needed to be said. I don’t fear for the future of this site or its community. As a gamer, I’ve seen conflicting alpha-personalities group up, fold, splinter, group up with other alpha-personalities, fold, and splinter again. It’s a cycle that hasn’t destroyed the competitive nature of gaming or the very existence of its various cultures. If there’s trolling and in fighting here then that’s to be expected I suppose… but it’s no concern of mine unless it adversely affects me somehow. I will continue to act as I always have, and participate as I always have. That is all.

  87. Richard Rider May 13, 2013 at 1:54 pm -      #87

    Thor should get his FP Award over Goku.

  88. Commander Cross May 13, 2013 at 5:09 pm -      #88

    @Richard Rider

    Too early somehow, Goku might be able to make Regular 616!-Thor sweat, but even then it might not necessarily be enough to make the fight awardable.
    Then again that’s the perfectionalist talking.

    @Lizard God/Lizzy G

    As I warned before, read the above and I guarentee nothing will go wrong, and know that whoever wrote either post #80 or #81 is a hypocrite who’s doing a shitty job with wikia pages these days when he’s not gathering closeted skeletons, and can’t even take criticism to save his life any more than he can tell criticism from trolling.

    Give me no reason to go against the spirit of my word and I’ll stick to the original spirit of it as well as the word itself, that’s all you need to know.

    Next time you wish to talk about it, do us all a favor and carry it on somewhere in less public locations, preferably e-mails or somewhere on Facebook, got it?

    From here on out its Hawke vs Haseo time.

    (Not Draco of course and if the accusation was misdirected I apologize)

  89. Sauroposeidon May 13, 2013 at 5:38 pm -      #89

    I should note that I strongly dislike the name Lizzy G, as it comes off sounding like something a rapper would name himself. One of the reasons I rarely ever read your posts, Cross, is because you insist on giving nick names to everyone. I pretty much just guess, and usually have no idea who you’re talking to or what about.

  90. Commander Cross May 13, 2013 at 6:03 pm -      #90

    @Lizard God at #89

    Try harder as I suspect you are not putting in any real effort, in fact check the numbers if you have to do that.

    Anywhom to everyone else, is it safe to go with Percy Jackson vs Kratos or is it too early for that?
    I already agreed that Luke vs Kharn needs to be awarded soon if that’s of any comfort.

  91. Sauroposeidon May 13, 2013 at 6:37 pm -      #91

    If I can not immediately discern what someone is talking about, be it lack of proper english, a case of detailment, of if the person is just crazy or dumb, I usually discard the post and let someone else deal with it.

    In your case, it’s usually an issue of derailment with a lack of proper English. Mainly derailment. Especially when added with your unusual syntax and fondness for nicknames. The fact that others understand you just fine results in me usually ignoring your post and reading the responses instead to get the gist of what you said. It takes up far less time and energy to do that instead.

    As far as I’m concerned, as long as I get the points that matter to the subject at hand, then I’m good, and nothing has been lost.

  92. Commander Cross May 13, 2013 at 6:50 pm -      #92

    I spell-check my words last time I checked.


    At any rate, while I go ask myself if I should pay the same opposite attention span to your posts you’re not making a lick of effort to do mine, I’ll go list out another fight in need of an award, either that or someone’s making excuses and it sure-as-hell is not me.

    Does Resident Evil vs Metal Gear qualify as an Awardable fight, or is it too much of a stomp-fest in either side’s favor?

  93. Commander Farsight May 13, 2013 at 8:52 pm -      #93

    Halo over Tau Empire will be my nomination.

  94. Masonicon May 13, 2013 at 8:54 pm -      #94

    @Commander Cross: Suggest these please?


  95. Commander Cross May 13, 2013 at 9:17 pm -      #95


    If you so wish, I can add them to the Cross-minded ideas thread of mine as more ideas in need of help to take flight as the most I will do is help them get posted, fair enough?

  96. Sauroposeidon May 13, 2013 at 9:56 pm -      #96

    “I spell-check my words last time I checked.”

    Your spelling if fine.

    “while I go ask myself if I should pay the same opposite attention span to your posts you’re not making a lick of effort to do mine”

    If it’s not about (insert adjective here)!-(insert character here)* vs some other gobblygook, then I usually take the time to read. But if at first glance what I’m looking at does not appear important to the match at hand and is not written normally, then I tend to skip it.

  97. Gluttonous-Behemoth May 13, 2013 at 11:00 pm -      #97

    That’s the conundrum Cross. You have impeccable grammar and spelling, plus a demeanor of absolute courtesy. But you have the ability to somehow remain almost incomprehensible at times. It’s almost formulaic, how you speak, yet sometimes I still find myself at a loss of what your meaning actually is.

  98. Commander Cross May 14, 2013 at 12:15 am -      #98

    I confess I was never too good at slowing down, I could take creatively constructive criticism with the best of them but I can’t seem to know when to sit still without spending time applying crude expressions or ideas in the process to save my life.

    While I may not be a saint about this, most of the site seems to suck horseshit at actually bringing up the Past in good taste.

    That second sentence for the record is an example of Crudeness.

    For more Cruder ideas, try Post-NJO Luke vs DC Comics’ Darkseid at 100% Maximum Power with Darkseid bloodlusted and Luke passive, or to twist the knife further bar any E.U at all for Luke. (which frankly isn’t like me normally and I hope it never becomes me, that too is an example of a violent idea that has no taste!)

  99. Aelfinn May 14, 2013 at 4:19 pm -      #99

    While I find Commander Cross incredibly attractive, and that bitch Sauro better stay the hell away from him, I don’t quite have those feelings for him.

  100. Sauroposeidon May 14, 2013 at 4:33 pm -      #100

    Whether I’m curious or not is hardly a matter, as I’m pretty sure my girlfriend would not approve of my crossing the gender line. You don’t have to worry Aelfinn. >=)
