SmurphSmash! (Zeitgeist)




Area

Symmetric Chaos
Prep:

Bats put together psi-blockers for Pete and himself. Sure Smurph didn't buy mind control but it never hurts to protect one's self.

Meanwhile Pete will be constructing this:
http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii236/Syms_Photos/KniteSuit.jpg

It's a lead lined suit that protects his Kryptonian from any foolish attempts at using K-nite. Bat's made it originally so the specs exist in the cave. Perfectly aimed HV spot welding should make it easy to build in a couple minutes.

Once it's on Pete will raise Flash's speed suit around it for a bit of added durability.

Match:

Batman will go after all Smurph's corporeal guys. None of the have nearly the competence to fight him.
MrI gets tossed into a volcano. He can't die but he won't be getting out either.
DeadGirl gets locked inside foam.
Mystique gets KTFO.
Loa gets taken down by sonics.

All of those Can be done with stuff Bats keeps in his utility belt.


Next I destroy you incorporeal guys. I'm going to do this:

Or this:
http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii236/Syms_Photos/SuperHypno.jpg
http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii236/Syms_Photos/SuperHypno2.jpg

You might not like it but that ability is still in Superman's powerset. I can just lock them in mental combat then use Karnak's skill and Flash's extremely fast thoughts to win easily.

Of course taking out Smurph's incorporeal guys will be done within moments thanks to Flash's speed.


I like simple plans.

Zeitgeist
In prep:

Drtzky is going to originate in Mr. I's head, and create a GL forcefield around his body.

Shadow King will possess Loa.

Immediately before the start of the battle, Mystique, Dead Girl and Loa will all go intangible.


In Battle:

Deadman will possess anybody he comes in contact with.

Shadow King will mentally attack the enemy, and use Loa as bait... if anyone tries to strike her, they're fried. Sym's team has knowledge of opposition, but the option is still open to them to kill themselves. We don't mind.

Drtzky will play defense unless Mr. I gets close enough so that the GL can quickly hop into one of their heads, fry their mind, and go back to him. Otherwise, if Drtzky needs to protect somebody, he will. Mr. I will always comply.

Doorman will hang around. They have no possible means to locate or hurt him.

If any of my guys need to perform an intangible kamikaze (phase in to opponent, unphase), they will.

Sym's team is great on the physical level. And they can't harm any of my guys... they can only even touch one of them.

A couple more brains to fry. Oh well.

Besides DeadGirl can still go down to a wide blast of HV.

He won't come in contact with anyone but Batman. Even if he tried that it would be mind control and thus banned.

Between Superman's senses and Karnak's tactical ability the presence of both possessing forces will instantly be clear. Then I go for the brain fry. With the sonics in Batman's belt I could also just leave the possessed so sick that it KOs them and the people in the.

Pete can go intangible instantly. Superman's sense will tell him the moment one of your phasers tries that. Pete moves to the side, bops him/her on the head. Down for the count.

So, in one hour, in a semi-standard lab without any of his uber items, and without any way to relay plans effectively to his teammate, Batman's supposed to build two mind blockers effective enough to block out a mind erasing green lantern math equation, a incorporeal being with telepathy on the level of Prof. X, and Deadman... whose possession isn't even mind control, but is strangely being categorized there anyways.

Did I get all that?

This is WITHOUT any effective knowledges of their weaknesses, how their powers work or what needs exactly to be blocked.

mmm

In addition. Bruce is probably the richest man in the entire DC Earth, owns multiple companies, and immeasurable amounts of resources, safe houses and back up locales. In addition to what he has stored up at the watchtower, etc.

Just assuming that ANYTHING is definitely in the Batcave (which is not that large...) is taking quite a leap of faith. So this suit is not necessarily, not even probably, easily at hand. What if it's even stored in a separate part of the mansion? In the watchtower? In a secretive place even Superman doesn't know about where he stores his JLA-related devices?

It's the goddamn Batman. Leaps of faith are fatal.

About how he plans to deal with the phasers.... the ONLY ones that those would have a hope of working on are Loa, Mystique and Deadgirl.

Doorman is essentially on a different plane of existence.

As is the Shadow King.

Deadman can't be affected, by any attack not mystical or supernatural in nature.

Drtzky is a math equation... brain surgery on a math equation?


And as for the ones who COULD be affected by this?

It doesn't matter. It's power negation. Which wasn't paid for.

Evangel stated at the beginning of the tournament that Flash was lower because he didn't have access to some of the more clever applications of his power because they would need to be bought.

And.... they weren't.

You have nothing more than a scarlet speedster... meh.

Also, fast as they might be, I'd like to see proof that Flash could attempt to perform brain surgery while moving as fast as he is. Superman doesn't use his more exotic powers at those speeds. Flash has never used Supes powers. Hell, they might even have to slow to a halt to accomplish anything in their plan.

In which case, Deadman, Drtzky, Shadow King, Loa and others can all kill them, possess them, mindrape them, etc.

And even if there was a plausible point in Sym's plan?

He can still do nothing to Deadman, Mr. I, Drtzky, Doorman, etc. who win the battle of attrition.

Slow for a fraction of an instant. Brain fry and leave. Nothing could be so simple. Flash isn't using Superman's power, Karnak is. Besides "all amalgams have full knowledge of how to use their powers." Pete will have no difficulty using these powers in the ways I describe.

Deadman will be a twitching mess. MrI will just as screwed up. Doorman will be unconcious in his alternate plane. Drtzky will be shattered after Pete accelerates part of his fractal mind so much that it just pops.

Drtzky literally equates to willpower, and is sentient.

If you really want to argue that he's incapable of making a shield, go ahead. It's clearly completely futile... "Show me generic GL #224 being capable of flight! Clearly he could have access to the GL power while not being able to accomplish more than your run of the mill brick!"

Dead Girl has no nerves to attack...

No proof that it could work on Loa. Maybe the signal gets dissipated when it reaches her?

Just thoughts I had since my last post.

Not to mention it can't work on any of the rest of my guys, and it's illegal.

Ho hum.

Though, notable in Loa's case, they're just cut up into tiny little pieces. smile

But he's nothing like a normal GL. Why would a math equation have use for (or concept of a forcefield). I'm just asking for a feat that shows some basic competence.

I mean it's not like you drafted a guy with no feats in hope that an extremely brief description would give just enough information for you to make the judges think that he was capable of whatever you claimed or something.

Different forms of intangibility. Yours will probably leave a trace for Superman to pick up.

He has devastating attacks, which also need to be bought.

This list goes on and on... you would need to buy more than IMP and Speed Steal to get all of Flash's possible applications of power. This is just another example.

King Kandy is allowed to express his early vote, because as a participant he is required to vote, and this is the only time in the entire day King Kandy supposedly can vote.

However, this only applies to King Kandy. This does not apply to anyone else (especially non-participants) as they must wait until the debate period is over to vote. However, King Kandy's vote will not go into effect until the debate period is over.

The debate period was reduced from 12 to 10 hours from the start of the match.

Smurph has nothing but hot air. He has deliberately chosen characters with few or no feats. The bio he provided on the GL (one paragraph) is the totality of its appearances.



I'll sum up my plan one last time. I will use T-Vo and Flash's ability to lend speed to parts of people's brains (here's a better example):
http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee305/Wally_Respect3/spedbraishift.jpg

Because of Karnak's ability to find weakness and Flash's hyperfast thoughts T-Vo fights will inevitably end with Pete winning. Smurph has yet to explain how his characters will not be KO'd by a brain fry or T-Vo.

If Mystique manages to avoid mental attacks Flash's vibration abilitys + Karnak's ability to strike the intangible mean I will eventually hit her. The same goes for characters like DeadGirl.

Then give positive proof of this math equation doing anything. I'm not going to assume it can do anything without some sort of basic evidence. After all it's just a math equation, it could just wander away from the other team members because it doesn't care.

You know nothing about its personality. You know nothing about its power level. You know nothing about if it is physical or not.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Loapower.jpg

You didn't have plausible, proven plans for Doorman, Drtzky, Shadow King or Deadman.

Hell, you didn't even have a plan for Doorman...

Andd then, to cover everything you realized you didn't know, you attempted to cover by applying laws of physics to ghosts, zombies and astral beings. To spirits of death, and sentient math equations.

You attempted to apply your "simple plan".

It, obviously, failed.

Creshosk
Voting for SmurphSmash. His plan is alot more feasable. And doesn't involve the mistakes of the past. Namely attacking something that doesn't exist.

Master-Borg
Just some thoughts so far:

I'm not really seeing how Smurph's team is beating Sym's. It seems like he is arguing the basis of how Sym's team won't be able to attack, but I haven't seen much argument for the offense of Smurph's team.

To me, Sym's team seems very meat and potatoes (but effective)...he's got someone who can hit intangible beings (Karnak), coupled with Superman's versatility, and the most important being Flash's speed imo. And bats for the prep with the psiblockers. So my question to Smurph is, how you plan to defeat Sym with a bunch of lowlevel intangibles(no need to type an explanation if you have already done so, just point to the post)...the fact that your characters are on different planes may support Sym having a hard time killing you, but then its a stalemate more than a victory for your team.

DigiMark007
Couple questions:

Can Superman engage multiple people in T-Vo at the same time?

And Drtzki (sic) has to have a physical form or else he can't affect reality in the first place. Abstract nothingness can't affect the physical world. So I'm really just looking for clarification on exactly what he is, and how he'll be able to do what smurph says.

Offense is the key here. Being defensive doesn't win battles. At some point, you have to switch to offense.

Voting for SC

Smurph really doesn't have a way to counter SC's massive speed advantege added on to the fact that SC can use Karnak's ability to hit phased people.

Papa Smurph
T-Vo mention is really a huge turn off in an in-character/non CBR battle even more then implying a rookie GL can easily close black holes based on one panel that's contradicted by multiple other panels and really isn't consistent with the way Lanterns are written today or indicative of battle prowess, but T-Vo is still so unbelievably lame and brings back horrible memories of circa [email protected] Superman debates. But I'll go with Sym, the whole win through outlasting is pretty shaky and barring T-Vo, I liked what Sym was saying.

DigiMark007
Well, hopefully my questions get answered at some point, but in the meantime I'll vote on what I can understand.

It's not that I disregard Dsyatk (sic). It's just that I can only assume baseline GL stuff with him...nothing beyond energy blasts and defense. He has to have a physical form, equation or not, or he wouldn't actually exist except as a powerless abstract concept. I think Smurph tried to, say, draft the set of imaginary numbers (not imaginary in a real-world sense, but as a mathematical definition) and then said "Ha! Attack this!" It doesn't really work like that.

On the other side, Sym didn't really provide proper justification for some of his prep, and while T-Vo may not be Kal's first option, I can accept it as part of his power set based on the fact that each participant is fighting for their dreams and loved ones. And at the end of the day, he has Superman with Flash speed, the ability to affect intangible substances, and weakness-detection.

Voting Sym.

Bentley
I cannot really vote for anyone on battle prowess since I don't believe one can ko the other. But this will go to SC in that case since T-vo is at least a chance to take them down, while Smurph has... Nothing. Can Drzzzl somehow take down the opponents? He seems to be the only one capable of hurting Supes.

Until new posts I vote for SC.

Don't be silly. There are no stalemates in this.

I have multiple ways to defeat Sym... and even if none of them worked, I still can easily just outlast them. Apparently this is what everybody is wondering, so I'll lay it out:

Shadow King and Drtzky can be attacking Pete's mind the entire time. It took Maxwell Lord, a clearly inferior telepath, some time to take control of Superman... but we have no intention of taking control. Shadow King is one of the most powerful telepaths in Marvel.

Sym has already avoided countering the point that there is no plausible way for him to even attempt constructing TP blockers, much less one effective enough to matter.

So the entire time that Sym seems to think he'll be doing a number of complicated procedures, he'll be doing it while Shadow King is battering his mental defenses to pieces.

Simultaneously, Loa can one-shot him. Deadman CAN possess him. Drtzky can erase his mind (the major ability highlighted in his bio). Deadgirl and Mystique can both kamikaze him.

On top of these facts, I have multiple people that he can't touch. He has no proof that he can target the mental processing of Drtzky. Doorman, a spirit of death, can't be touched by Superman... it's not intangibility. There are no atoms to hit by vibrating his hand really fast (a fact that goes for Deadman, Shadow King, Deadgirl, Drtzky, and trying it on Loa would remove your hand).

He says he can target Doorman by switching between dimensions. But Doorman doesn't really exist in another dimension... he exists in ours. We just can't tell.

So when he tries to switch dimensions to target Doorman, that's self BFR.

Same goes for Shadow King.

Finally, even if you don't believe any of that (can't see why not), I can simply outlast him.

If they so choose, he can't lay a hand on Drtzky, Deadman, Shadow King, Deadgirl, Doorman, possibly even Loa.

NONE of his supposed methods of attack would work (illegal, or simply dumb), and ALL of my methods of attack have yet to be countered.

Drtzky, Deadman, Shadow King, Deadgirl, Doorman and Mr. Immortal can all simply outlast him. Mr. Immortal can't die and is supposed to live and exist to be the only thing left in the entire MU.

Deadman is a ghost, and immortal.

Shadow King can't be touched, and isn't human. No way for anybody to affect him.

Drtzky can apparently just exist as a thought inside someone's head, and nobody can hit a math equation... just can't be done.

Deadgirl is immortal, and can exist as a specter.

Doorman is a spirit of death that Superman can't affect in any way, shape or form.

It may seem odd, even improper, but it's true. I CAN NOT BE HARMED.

And my attacks HAVE NOT BEEN COUNTERED.

ALL OF HIS ATTACKS HAVE BEEN.

I'll be on if anybody has any more questions.

Smurph, 1 hour seems enough for batman and pete to build 2 psiblockers in a sicence lab.

I think thats the crux of why people don't see your team doing jack to Pete.

You have a hard case to prove that bats and Pete can't build 2 psiblockers in an hour in a science lab, if you do, I think you have a much stronger case for your team winning...but even then, I don't see your team counteracting or matching Pete's speed, so maybe you should address that if you could as well.

They barely have information on my team's powers. Not on the nature, level or delivery method of any mind attacks that we have. 1 hour is NOT enough for Batman to try to design and build multi-leveled psiblockers powerful enough to cut out an Xavier level telepath. On top of Drtzky, who would be impossible to prepare for, and APPARENTLY Deadman (though that is clearly possession).

Not to mention, if Batman built them, we can simply read Batman's mind to know how to get around it.

I don't know why people seem to think that Bats can build a perfect, powerful blocker (much less 2) in a single hour with less resources than usual.

Are we really going to ride on hype? Sym even mentioned that he was having trouble finding prep feats for Bruce, which was extremely surprising given how overhyped his prep abilities are.

The "thinking faster than even you!" bit was mentioned to show that Flash could outrace the Thinker's thinking speed. Who was a computer program that could easily be overloaded.

Gorrila Grodd would laugh at this attempt at telepath-rebuttal.

And Shadow King > Grodd. By a long shot. He could just continuously hammer away at Pete's mental barrier and one-shot his mind afterwards.

He didn't outrace him. Flash destroyed Thinker by overloading him. Karnak's mind will make it even easier.

ExodusCloak
Ugh...T-Vo that's really iffy.
I'm not entirely convinced that Pete could really do anything to the many forms of intangibility Smurph has on his side with 1 hour of prep.
TP-Blockers built in one hour from scratch may not be sufficient for a telepath of Shadow Kings caliber. And have to agree with Smurph where I don't think 1 hour is enough to assemble a Psi-Blocker.
Touch Loa and they're practically dead.
I think that Smurphs write up is plausable but with or without the Psi-Blockers and T-Vo which I consider iffy, Pete is still going to be very, very difficult to take down.
Making this quite a stalemate. However If I'm going to have to choose one I'm going to say Smurph because of Doorman.

DigiMark007
Switching my vote to Smurph. Not that he's a whole lot better than before, but without psi-protection Sym is in trouble...and he never actually showed the psi-blocker except to say he had it, so it doesn't exist imo. Hopefully I didn't miss anything, because a lot of this match I've just been trying to wrap my head aorund stuff.

The parts of the psi blockers and the directions could be brought to the field for Pete to build there (no speed restriction like in prep). I don't think they need to do that though.

He's a sentient math equation granted GL Power to protect the weak, etc.

He's a universal policeman in the form of a math equation that equates to one of the most dangerous weapons in the universe.

That basically dictates how he would act, and even if he has a thousandth of the ability of the GL's we know by name, that would be enough to accomplish everything I've said.

Not to mention he literally equates to willpower, so, chances are, he'd have more than most GL's power.

It's something of an abstract concept, but it's certainly enough.

My issue is whether or not the psi-blocker (or the plans) exist at all. Bats has probably used a psi-blocker at some point, but I've never seen it and "I build a psi-blocker with Pete" doesn't allay my fears any. GL bubble + tp might be enough to win otherwise, though I realize that others think otherwise due to some of Flash's powers. It's a tough match to call.

hmmm, good point, should I not assume Batman knows how to build a psi-blocker (I figured it's something pretty basic)?

If I should not assume that, then I have to rescind my vote for the time being then.

Let me see if I can come up with an analogy...

So would observing DKRTYZY be like Neo from the Matrix seeing all the green letters and code floating around on the walls, floor, and all around in the matrix? Similarly his power to mess with people's heads is similiar to that of someone in the matrix messing with the head of someone who is connected to the matrix?

I need a question answered then. If DKRTYZY doesn't have a physical body, then how would be effective in combat (other than his mindwipe ability)?

He may be able to wipe your mind, but outside of that, what can he do? Scans of obscure characters are crucial.

Scans of obscure characters are crucial. I'm working on it, but my guess is that that would be the case.

And he can apparently exist inside a person's mind just fine (bio says he enters them in order to wipe their minds).

This means that he could be in any of my characters, and pop inside Pete's. Or just win through attrition. Either way, Dkrtyzy solos...

I don't have your vote so obviously even trying to win is pointless now

I mean who cares that Blair Wind and Digi voted for me in that match their opinions are obviously worthless compared to yours

Feel kinda bad for Sym. But that's tourneys I guess.

I might have switched my vote (again) if I had seen batdude's psi-blocker scans, but it was after my switch and I never checked in again until after voting was closed.

Well, kick arse in the FFA or something, I guess.

Looking at the 0-2 people I'm not terribly worried. Which is good because every time I've thought "gee this might be though" I lost.

I would have voted for Symmetric Chaos as well, but when I last logged on he was up by a lot of votes so I thought he had it in the bag. I didn't vote because this debate was far from intriguing, with neither side inspiring me to make a judgment, (this notion especially made true after witnessing the Digimark vs darthgoober debate).

Symmetric Chaos
doh

DigiMark007
So Sym lost because my debating skill is so high level???

laughing out loud

Sorry Sym. I'll try to tone it down for next match.
