Givin MA to Brutes&Tanks was a mistake

Recommended Posts

Brutes and Tanks are about raw strength. They shouldn't be using martial arts or any kind of fancy karate moves. Everywhere I see, everyone is rolling a Brute. This is making a mockery of things. It's even hurting the integrity of characters people make. Bruce Lee was not a brute, he was a scrapper. Period. Brute is a villain thing.

Hi,

 

I would like to inform you that you have several arguments within your statement, resulting in an incoherent message that really leads one to believe you are not being sincere about your assertion.

I would agree that bruce lee probably was a scrapper but bruce lee does not represent the entirety of martial arts concepts. That larger bloke in enter the dragon (the bad guys champion) could be described as a brute simply on size alone. It's not for any of us to say what concepts are correct or not for anyone else. More options > less options.

Watching granite armor with rooted enabled whilst kicking people in the face forces me to disagree with the OP.

 

I still get the point... once upon a time the flavor of an AT was incorporated into the attack sets it was allowed... but then brutes got claws which forced me to say "proliferate ALL the things!"

I do not agree with mass proliferation- I think it took away from ATs, but alas we are here so whatever just do it. :3

I kind of get this but I still think more options are better than less. If they could have produced enough powersets that each AT could have it's own suite of powersets then that might have been ok but given how much work that would have been I think we are better off where we are. Besides I find it interesting how the same set plays differently on different AT's.

Bolo Yeung was a Brute and Bruce was a Scrapper.

 

Chuck was a BruTankapper....all 3 lol.

Nice prooving my point by using the most tiresome, overused meme on the planet.

If you find a powerset inappropriate for an AT you can... choose to not play it?

I was hoping for MA to be ported to Brute's during live & I happen to like my Ma/Fire/Soul Brute now that it is here thank you very much.

Martial Arts was ported to Tankers by Paragon Studios back in Issue 21.  The only melee AT it was missing from at sunset was Brutes.  SCoRE simply filled in the gap.

Well, I really hope I like Marital Arts as a set, since I just created three tankers:  Dark Lee, Biologic Lee, and Radioactive Lee.

 

I guess I'm making a mockery of things...

 

EDIT:  this has not been the first time I've mixed up "martial" and "marital"...  I apologize, especially to my spouse...

In fairness, the line between "marital" and "martial" can be as confoundingly vague as it is infintesimally narrow.  Which isn't always a bad thing. 😉
