What ever happened to picking two people and setting them up to fight? Jesus Christ, If it's done well, adding maybe another bloke it makes sense; but it's gotten out of hand. Giant Team fights are emerging out of nowhere.

Team 1:

Barney
Galactus
spiderman
Wolverine
Proffesor X
Iron Man
Harry Potter
Adam Sessler
jackie Estacado vs

team 2:

Kratos
Jesus (the goddesy)
Spider-man (again)
Dumbledore
Frodo
Bilbo Baggins
Santa Claus
Napoleon Dynamite.

So you click the link to the fight, scroll down to the end of the set-up so you can be informed before laying your judgement, and you find a long list of assorted people from sundry works of fiction.

Then you force yourself to read the set-up so you can find out Why the F*ck the Joker is working with Bruce Lee!

At this point it's reached a level of retarded that even American-made comedy movies couldn't come up with.

End Rant.

I agree. That's one thing I never did or liked to do was group fights. If they aren't in the database, tough cookies. I think the CBUB crowd is running out of original ideas. The admins really need to update it. I think it's gotten really stale.

That's because the CBUB crowd sucks and only look at/use well known characters so matches with non-mainstream/well known characters aren't looked out, and in turn, those characters are not used.

This is true. Nobody uses non well-known characters because they either:

A. Like getting a lot of post on their matches.
B. Want to use well known characters with hopes of getting A's for those popularity.

It's a popularity contest there. If it's not Goku, Superman or something like that. It's invisible.

Well you can't look at a fight with characters you don't know at all. well you can, but it's extra work which most people aren't willing to put in for a hobby.

You know cbub...They'll probably just think that people were "out to get them" or something like that.

Yea, I'm sure they'll get it eventually.

I've done a few matches with obscure characters and got maybe one A and two or three comments. On the CBUB, if it's not a big name, it's invisible.

Posted by: Marvel Man Mar 3 2009, 12:07 AM
I must agree on the popular characters thing.

Great matches, with well written set ups, are ignored simply due to the use of non popular characters. Just look at Shockwave's match.

I didn't know one of the characters, but I commented on the set up (which was good).

Still, an update is needed.

Too True. Another user, Chaos-With-Honor, who is, without a doubt, one of the best writers on there, makes matches almost exclusively with characters who are not well known. Well off the beaten path, as one might say...I always give him "A"s when I can, and comment on his matches.

As for the update...Serge said he was busy, so I'm assuming he's almost done with the update, but is just too busy with work, which sucks! angry.gif

Actually, it's Graves that is doing it now. He's made a few predictions, but it's slow going.

Regardless, CBUB can be cool and original, it's up to the writers. Grano and I kept if exciting for a while. At least, I think so.

Ive been trying to tell you guys the same thing about this site, the members decide which direction the site goes in. There is nothing graves, or any admin can do for that matter, to make you suck a little less.
You can lead a horse to water but you cant make it drink.

Bravo. You're good with the one liners.

You can lead a man to eating fish, but you can't stick a booger in your mouth.

That stuff is great.

Um, NO! I love team battles, I think their great. Well, when it's written well and has a good story.... As well as realistic teams.

Little Foot is a user on CBUB who I've been helping with his matches, (Just as Grano did for me in the beginning). He's a great writer and has a excellent story going on. You should check out his matches, may turn your opinion around.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

Nah, I'd rather be able to voice my opinion. People are going to think of me as a fool anyway... laugh.gif
