Givin MA to Brutes&Tanks was a mistake

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. 😉

I've never wanted to hit my wife and she's only wanted to punch the shit outta me a couple times in almost 20 years... so we're doin good!


Harm no other and do as ye will. It ain't rocket surgery.

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.

Bolo – Enter The Dragon.  (MA Brute)

The Three Storms – Big Trouble In Little China. (MA Villains, not really brutes at all)

Colt – Return of The Dragon. (half and half MA Villain, partially a brute I suppose?)

Gogo Yubari – Kill Bill. (a tasty little Morsel of a MA Villain)

 

I think Bruce Lee might be a Brute though? Didn't you see Fist of FURY!

Bruce Leeroy on the otherhand is definitely a scrapper!

Sho'nuff - (MA Brutish Villain)  Playtime's over boy! When I say who's the master? You say! Sho'nuff!

See Superman and Klurkor.

I strongly disagree.

You can be a walking mountain of rage and still chop people away with fancy moves.

Proofs MA Tankers predate COH  

God I loved that game. To the point that I was able to loop through it without thinking about it.

No, you're clearly making a Lee, of all things.

Please tell me you can Eagle Claw whilst Granite+Rooted?

What a sight that would be to behold

Eagle Claw with the cat- er- 'wolf' legs was what sold me on making Wolfhound MA.  Rule of cool always triumphs.

 

Also Jackie Chan is the OG MA tanker.  He's taken enough hits to put a blaster into months of debt.

Spruce Lee

 

Plant/Martial Dominator of course.

I remember the Lee family thread from the old forums.

Sudden Lee

Vicious Lee

and so forth.

In that vein, there needs to be a brute and tanker MA supergroup called “The Adverbs.”

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

^This.

 

I wasn't a fan when they spread the different archetypes because the then new Villain ATs were equivalents (ish) of existing Hero ATs.

 

But we're here, it's not going to change, and it's a non-competitive game so...  flip it. Let's go!
