@cadencev2: @jashro44: @lvenger: Hey, I appreciate the kind words but I'm not here to fish for compliments. I'm dead serious. I had no belief that I was going to be highly ranked in this thing nor did I ever want to be. I understand the whole "past-exploits" ordeal but seriously, I think that's a bunch of nonsense. What I did in the past is hilariously overshadowed by what you guys continually put out on a daily basis. For instance, debating is constantly evolving. You guys take what is given to you, learn from the best and revolutionize and push those boundaries even further. In my opinion, you guys are constantly widening the gap established by the previous standards by uniquely taking the form of debating in new directions everyday.

That is quintessential difference here and I cannot stress how flat out impressed I am. Bottom line, it's inspirational.

He was one of the first really good debaters when the site launched a little over 6 years ago. Back when mods like Buckshot, Static Shock, Gambler, and the like were really active on the Battle forums. But he hasn't been here consistently for probably close to half a decade now.

I wouldn't say that long ago. He's been less active/gone for maybe 2-3 years. Or maybe you're right, it's hard to say without checking.

No disrespect to Vance, but Forever should have his spot in the first HoF.

I checked before I posted. The last activity before he started having big gaps was, to date, 5 years and 8 days ago. So pretty much half a decade.

I didn't actually delve into the depths of his forum history, I just worked backwards from recent postings. Nothing jumped out.

I'm gonna need to check out some of this Forever guy's debates if he's getting a sudden wave of support just now.

#133 Posted by beatboks1 (7215 posts) - - Show Bio

@lvenger: it's well worth it let me tell you. Buckshot posted some good links on this thread. One awesome one was a DC vs Marvel ( company wide) battle that originally went 50+ pages ( on CV 2.0 it's still in the 20's) . Plenty of great debates in his history and with out a doubt IMO the most even tempered debater to have ever been on the site. At times he made Morpheus look ruffled

I can't really decide who to really vote for, so I will throw my final vote to forever since he has been here the longest. Skimming through some of his posts and the threads posted he seems to be pretty good.

I'm sure he was also in the BP vs Wolverine thread but on a scan through can only find gambler and buckshot educating some fool called howlettejames.

Did he actually keep a goddamn reasonable discussion about Iron Man vs Black Panther with prep? That alone is an impressive feat in of itself since if this thread was made today, it would be way more aggressive and argumentative. If @deranged_midget is OK with me subtracting my vote for him because he's being awesomely humble and showing great humility in not wanting to go into the HOF this year (despite him being an awesome debater) I'd like to change my vote to @forever since he seems to be a very capable and level headed debater and those qualities are very respectful in a debater. Is that all right @citizenbane, am I allowed to change my vote from DM to Forever?

#142 Posted by Cooldes (4097 posts) - - Show Bio

@citizenbane:

well since almost none of my votes counted

I'd like to put in a vote for PrinceArogorn. he's a REALLY good debater, lots of anime knowledge

So from what i understand we shouldn't necessarily pick 5 but rather the max. is 5? Anyway, i have a very limited domain of interest when it comes to these forums (only cosmic characters) so im pretty sure im missing some good debaters, but from what ive seen:

Killemall

Isaac_Clarke

Cadencev2

@citizenbane tagged so that you see it.

Okay, I don't like picking favorites, and I love debating against all the people on the list. That being said, I will vote for the following (in no particular order):

  1. @killemall - Almost an endall argument whenever he pops into a thread. He's the "well actually" of comicvine.
  2. @yourneighborhoodcomicgeek - More than a bit biased (extremely I would say) when it comes to Master Chief. However, he's always a pleasure to debate against, and usually very polite.
  3. @cadencev2 - Sometimes he gets a little caught up in feats and forgets to actually make an argument or a strategy. But it's hard not to vote for the guy who introduced the "Scanpocalypse".
  4. @jashro44 - Always a pleasure, I see him pop up in a lot of the threads I myself am in. Whether we agree or disagree, I don't think I've seen him "explode" like some users do.
  5. @veshark - Very patient, very polite, and knows his characters. Maybe not all-knowing, but when he comes in and makes a decision he can generally back it up.

Again, this was a good nomination list. I could easily have replaced many of the people I voted for with someone else, but I am content with these choices. Best of luck to you all!

Thanks for reading,

Floopay
