double checking the references for light pikes, most of them actually are made out of phrik.

Citation needed. If it says they are most commonly made from it then it's a viable point, but I never heard that they were.

"The long handle of the weapon was made of phrik alloy, which allowed it to resist lightsabers.[1] At the end of the handle was a lightsaber blade that was shorter and thicker than a normal one.[4] "

Fair enough, but it seems to say it as if ever single pike was made of it. I still question the validity of that statement, but I'll give you that.

So assuming that most of them are made of lightsaber resistant materials, that doesn't really make it that much less of a flaw. On that same page it says the same thing I said initially. Once they get around the blade, there is practically no defense.

"Much like the double-bladed lightsaber, however, the weapon's length was also something of a hindrance, as it did not transition well into defending, and left the wielder extremely vulnerable if an opponent managed to close in. In addition to this, the pike required a considerable amount of open space to wield effectively. As such, a user who found himself in close quarters would be at a distinct disadvantage."

I guess we should only argue about swords and shields when they're made from balsa wood then.

Except most shields aren't made out of balsa wood. Yes I know it was a joke, but my point still stands. If you compared a Spartan shield vs some African tribal shield, you wouldn't change the material of what they were most commonly made of. The Spartans shield was brass and some other metals while the tribal shields usually were wood. If you were weighing the pros and cons of the tribal shield, you wouldn't say the shield would be made of iron or steel when it's most commonly made of wood. That would be trying to add unrealistic variables to try to validate your defense and that would also be retarded.

To reiterate, the average saber is NOT made of materials that can block a lightsaber so using it as a counter point is an unrealistic variable.

He gets touchy about certain comic things. I've personally seen him rant about how much he hated fem-Thor(or it may have been another character. Maybe the penance stare with ghost rider). All I'm saying is I've heard from multiple people that you block often and then I get blocked then IP blocked. All signs point to you blocking, then IP blocking, then unblocking me.

again, we don't have to give two shits about the "Average duelist"
that's irrelevant in and of itself because an average duelist wouldn't be weilding a light pike in the first place. and yes, there are phrik armors but phrik isn't "immune" to sabers, it's resistant to them.

We are talking about the effectiveness of the weapon. The weapon isn't usually made of materials that block lightsabers. It can be, but most aren't. When weighing the pros and cons of the effectiveness of anything, you take the most common form of it rather than the beefed up form of it. For example, look at Deadliest Warrior. They took the average fighters of whichever groups they picked. They didn't pick a fighter and then give him armor and shit that most of them didn't have. They gave them the stuff most of them had. So if we're weighing the pros and cons of the pikes effectiveness, we're going to use the most common form of the pike. The ones that had average materials that were not lightsaber resistant.

I'm not calling anyone hypocritical, I'm just pointing out that by feeling outraged by his actions we are just giving him more publicity. It's not hypocritical, it's just foolish and uneffective. The guy's a master ruseman, do you think he doesn't know he's being a dick right now? He just does it because he knows he's gonna get a response

So, yeah, he's a douche for insulting fat people trying to better themselves, no fucking shit, Sherlock, but before this moment you didn't even know him and now here you are discussing his actions with me, giving him the attention he wants and thus "falling into his game"

It's really not that complicated
#97 - anon (07/03/2016) [-]
See the thing is...

No one is outraged?

We disagreed with what he said, how is that outrage?

Outrage is demanding their employment and requesting government action based on his opinions.

Trying to compare this to what SJW crybabies do is just silly.
