I would even go so far as to say that he's terrible at it. The people who are getting involved in a lot of bar brawls are the ones who can't handle their liquor, with a quick mouth and doesn't think twice of their opponent. That's Johnny, completely underestimating our Old Man who will rig up the nearest train to drive it over his sorry drunk ass. Our Old Man may look tired but he's got the stamina, the drive to keep going, just like he makes all those long haul drives to Midgar.

Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.

So because he can drive a car/van he can automatically drive a train ?
Wow must've missed that box on my driving licence.

Those trains move very slowly. It's not really helpful in a fight.

My impression is the winner gets arrested, because they stick around and the defeated one leaves?

If the Old Guy was as fat as you all shame him for, then fine, Johnny wouldn’t be able to make a dent. In fact, he would easily knock over Johnny’s drunk ass and sit on him and the fight would be over. Licorice is right, Johnny demonstrates a nervous disposition and is exactly the kind of insecure man that talks himself up to overcompensate but can’t dish a real life challenge. The Old Guy won't need to drive the train, just lock him in one and make ghost sounds and Johnny will drive himself to tears. Cry for mummy, Johnny, cry!

Default Reasons Why Johnny Continues To Be The Very Embodiment Of Suck

Snap, didn’t mean to fall quiet! Cursed life responsibilities! Anyway, let’s go! Because this post is T H I C C I’ve put points under spoiler tags. I dunno, I thought it would help??

On size!
InterfaceLeader wrote:
Bforbrigitta wrote: Oh yes daddy! Look at those defined, huge, muscular arms compared to Johnny's skinny chicken bone limbs. Dude's got a bit of a belly on him now but he still keeps that strength workout routine tight; the roads are long and tough.
Let's look at Old Guy, shall we?

(SPOILER)

A 'bit of a belly'? The guy is wider around than he is tall! No, an aged obese truck driver who spends all day sitting on his butt driving around in the sun is hardly going to have what it takes to cope in the dark, creepy, dangerous environment of the train graveyard -- and Johnny knows exactly how to make those trains shift about, where to hide, and what's safe to climb.
My lovely teammates have already pointed out the vileness of fat shaming, but on top of that, you say that as if he wouldn’t use his physic to his advantage! So he’s a bit thicc. You know who else are deadly opponents with a little bit of extra fat? Sumo wrestlers!

Though that doesn’t seem to take away from their athleticism


I can see it now! Johnny drunkenly slurring his words and trying to take a swing at our champ, said champ tightening his muscles so that Johnny comically bounces off the belly. Johnny eventually being crushed under a one-man dog pile.


On the right to live!
InterfaceLeader wrote: And we've spent a lot of time exaggerating the amount Johnny likes to drink - but what about old guys past, huh? We know from that belly that the guy likes his food, but what about the other seven deadly sins?

Well, let's see what he says when Zack asks him what he should do with his life!

Old Guy: Young people should try everything!

(SPOILER)


Yes, this is a guy who likes to experiment - with jobs, and probably with drugs and sex. And the fact he's wound up in a crappy job like driving a truck around is testament to those poor life choices.
Or a testament to his choice of living a little more simply after a lifetime of making the most out of his what he had! Why should young people be confined to this singular trajectory? Why not take advantage of your youth and experiment to see what you love to do and what you have a talent for!? Old Guy isn’t telling Zack to make poor choices, but to not be afraid of them! Experiment! Live a little! Go out and see the world! OR you stir trouble at home and end up as the town drunk, only choosing to escape when your own mother has decided it’s too much...


On types!
InterfaceLeader wrote: Your theory that Mukki took him to Costa Del Sol is built on pure conjecture and thin air - look at that picture of Mukki and his companions you shared.

Look closely and consider the type of company Mukki likes to keep. It seems to me that Mukki has a type, and I think we can all agree that Johnny - whom you yourself described as a 'shrimp' - is not that type.

(SPOILER)





No, Mukki likes to travel the world and is not short on cash, but his entourage is made up of sporty, muscular, gym-loving guys with a liking for shorts and neatly trimmed facial hair.

NOT slim-and-wiry guys who wear jean jackets with their sleeves rolled up.
Cloud Strife is Mukki’s type. Lean, average height, pretty-enough-to-be-mistook-for-a-girl-in-a-wig Cloud Strife is Mukki’s type.

According to the FFWiki~
FFWiki wrote: [Mukki] takes an instant liking to Cloud and flirts with him at every opportunity, much to Cloud's embarrassment.

Cloud is uncomfortable with Mukki attempting to get him to stay and join his "Young Bubby's group".
Now, if Mukki truly didn’t care for the company of anyone who wasn’t packing serious muscle, then why would he be so interested in Cloud? You said so yourself that Johnny is fit

, surely not much bigger if at all than Cloud himself. So this idea that Mukki couldn’t possible keep Johnny for company because of his physic is, frankly, a fallacy!


On fighting!
Furthermore, by insisting he couldn’t have gone with Mukki & Company, I’m assuming you’re sticking with the argument that he faced with a Zolom by himself. Nobody save Sephiroth has been able to do that .


Surely you’re not suggesting that Johnny is on par with with this guy?

Methinks Sephiroth would have something to say about that...


And if you are then, again, why the blankety blank didn’t Tifa and Barret utilise this awesome strength and skill in their fight against Shinra? Why would Tifa even need to give Johnny pointers in fighting as you suggested earlier? This just reeks of FAKE NEWS! SAD!

Ergo wrote: We have on one hand a man who has survived in one.of the worst slums of Midgar, knows the terrain of the battle intimately and is known as a fighter.
Is he though?? We’ve only seen evidence of him getting ‘blitzed,’ consider spending the night with a prostitute, and finding his way out of Midgar on the backs of better, stronger men.

And to address this:
Ergo wrote: So because he can drive a car/van he can automatically drive a train ?
Wow must've missed that box on my driving licence.
Fair, but if you argue that point, surely you must concede that Johnny doesn't know any more about operating a train either. Just because he lives near a yard of broken down trains, does not mean he magically knows how to operate one, just as living near a forest does not automatically qualify one as a dendrologist. And as my teammate Licorice has pointed out, it is likely he's never ventured in the area given it's notorious reputation for being haunted. Thus, this little scenario

InterfaceLeader wrote: Old guy: Huh?! Where am I? What's going on?
Johnny: *leaps aboard a train and sends it speeding forward*
Old guy: NOOOOOOO!!!!
Could never happen. Of the two, however, if the trains were, indeed, utilised, 'Old Guy' would have the better chance of sorting it all out!


InterfaceLeader wrote: ((Also sorry if the images are HUGE I tried to resize them but not sure if it worked o.o))
They were fine! <3

....Which is the opposite of the state Johnny is gonna find himself in when ‘Old Guy’ is done with him!




Spectators, I think the choice is clear here! Doggy doogle, vote for Moogle!

Joe
solo player sab

At this time, spectators and audience members are allowed to post their thoughts on the match. Players are NOT ALLOWED to counter any of these comments with new arguments or to continue ‘battling’ in general. Any attempt to do so will count as an automatic loss for your team. Players are free, however, to pay compliments to your opponents and such. ^^

Players!

If you’d like to opt out of participating in the next round, tell me so now.. Otherwise, I’m going to assume you’re still playing and you’re going to be reshuffled into a new team.

In General

If anyone (players, spectators, audience, anyone) has any feedback, questions, or concerns regarding the rules, please post that in the master thread here. It’ll be easier for me to keep track of/find your feedback this way for future reference. Thank you!

Any non-participant who’d like to be shuffled into a team, please say so now.
