Title: FPL writers are not better than CBUB writers!


videogameman - August 4, 2008 07:20 PM (GMT)
I belive that FPL and CBUB have diffrent styles of writing. Like comic writers today, we don't make new charecters on CBUB, we use old ones because we're more conformtable with them. FPL are like the early writers of comics. Almost every issue, you make a new charecter, or else your company will die. That's what I think.

FPL writers can and have made CBUB matches that everyone regards as excellent. CBUB writers generally fail when attempting to create FPL characters.

We are just more comfortable with a diffrent writing style. Heck, I make charecters, but I don't post them on FPL because I never end up with enough points to finish it! It could be that the power system is limiting writing skills.

I made like 6 and every one of them failed, but M Bison, don't call me a bad writer.

No. You just want over powered characters.

I won't. But FPL is better.

What? One of my charecters had weak body, aglity, and strength. His only advantge is his ultimate mind. I got everything down, but then i couldn't use mind blast.

The abilities determine success, not stats.

SilverSurfer092 - August 4, 2008 08:43 PM (GMT)
FPL is definitely better. It's not different writing types, it's different skills. I'm not saying that writers at the CBUB are bad, I'm just saying that FPL is way better.

Why can't we all just get along?

I actually enjoy the CBUB better, but the majority of the FPL writers are better. I mean I've read some really good ones that just make me feel inadequate as a writer and a lot of you consider me a decent writer. Those guys are good. The CBUB gets stuck with Go Team Me. However, if you go to the forums of the Electric Ferret, they have Outstanding CBUB setups that has some of the best stories on the CBUB. Really good stuff. I'm not on there either. I'm working on it.

Because Nesh will want to make a DBZ or Naruto rip off. It's perfectly possible to make both street levelers and top tier characters, just look at the hall of fame. And point still stands, FPL writers are good at CBUb, yet CBUB writers generally fail at FPL. Proof on it's own.

Look, speaking as a Writer for both, CBUB is for fun. It's the relaxing part of EF that makes people put their writing out on the table so people will read it and tell you how cool or not it is. FPL is the Olympics. You have to up your game on this, you have to make sure you get an interesting character made, you have to make sure your writing is spotless. If you do all this, you then fight other characters, and maybe get into the HoF, the granddaddy of Writers fame. As one of the Admnins once said, a long time ago, " CBUB are the Band Geeks Table, and FPL are the Jocks".

darkender - August 5, 2008 05:58 PM (GMT)
FPL is better writers. I made sooo many characters that didn't make it that long.

You know. I've actually never tried to create a character. One day.

I guess CBUB is like free-style writing as long as it can make sense and get to the point on the storyline of how you want to pit your fictional characters together, but I don't know much about FPL, except for the fact that you have to actually write a neat and detailed story and make up your fictional character (it gets tougher each day)

It's almost like being in a skiing resort, CBUB'rs take the beginner and intermediate slope, while the FPL'rs must probably want to take the Expert slope the most.

You don't know what I've tried to make and it's actually a lot easier to make a Naruto rip off than my original characters. I said the powers wer limiting because some possible powers aren't listed and then thre's the issue of point balance. No pffense to F.P.L. but if I make a characters it'll be in novels and fanfics where points and stuff don't stifle imagination.

A simple power limit stopping you from participating shows a lack of creativity on your part. They don't have to be some mega powerful god.

I didn't try to make uber-powerful god nor do I lack creativity. It's just 250 fity points is small considering how much powers and stats cost. Then there's updating text field consantly.

With that amount of points, you can create a lightspeeder who can create black holes. Read the hall of fame, and you find street levelers up to uber powerful gods that could knock the shit out of Superman. It doesn't have a limited power level.

And the text is there for you to write in, like a good writer would.
