Has anyponer ever thought of using a video game to settle an internet argument, like a 1v1 game, fighting or FPS, as a duel of sorts? Is this already a thing? Can we make this happen concurrently with mlpol.net, or would there be too many complications with OPSEC? Posting here, let me know if it should move to /qa/.

Have at you!

That's dumb. The stakes for a match should be proportional to the issue at hand, and internet disagreements aren't serious at all.

>internet disagreements aren't serious at all
You might be right there, but I'd like to make a distinction between a disagreement and something that just devolves into petty namecalling, which at this point I must regret to say has sapped a lot of strength not to engage in myself. If you'll look at the timestamps of this thread I left not only this thread but the website as a whole for about a month on my own due to not wanting to be around a certain someone. I, for one, would consider that serious business, as I can be a pretty active user; and the way I see it, if an internet fight isn't taken seriously at all in the first place, neither should be a ban. Perhaps if you want to look at it this way, the predetermined punishment as outlined in the agreed-upon terms would only be as serious as the offense someone took. Tit for tat.

>>148151
I was starting to think along the same lines, though that's something that I think should be left up to the challengers, and after the fight, someone could choose either not to enforce it, or do so less than the agreed upon terms if they wanted as a show of mercy. Much like firing into the air in the South of the 19th century.

>>148152
>It wouldn't be hard to just pretend to leave, and continue to post anonymously.
This is true, and something I alluded to in >>148074 when I mentioned:
>This is the type of thing that really only works if a lot of people are on board with it, and people are willing to exhibit a sense of shame.
For example, if someone loses a duel and comes back before their time is up, that would be a dishonorable thing to do, as in someone that shows a bit of shame wouldn't do such a thing, and if they were found out, a technique to try could be that the user is called out and banned for a longer time. One might be surprised at how hard it is to keep the "facts" straight, should they begin to lie under questioning.
Of course, it wouldn't hurt at least by ceremony, should the esteemed moderators think it a decent idea and strike an IP on the banlist.
The world's really our oyster here, folks. The way I see it, we can do this, or not, any way the community likes.

Meanwhile I've installed another OS on my computer, and the next step is going to be to do a bit of groundwork when it comes to security settings, and then all that would have to happen is I find a game to play. But I'm beat for now so I'm going to have to do that another time.

And if anyone doesn't think this kind of thing could be a big deal, may I invite you to look at how much money and ceremony has gone into boxing matches over the past century, and in this one how video games are picking up steam in esports leagues. When there's competition and consequences involved, things can start to become a big deal pretty quick. Can I at least say it's worth a shot, if I'm the one that lays all the groundwork for it?

Look mate, no offense but I feel like I've already said my piece on these questions here, and honestly we're all in the process of figuring this out in case I haven't. In case honor is not something that's easily understood here, I'd compare it to the theory of General Relativity, which is said to be hard to understand for those that don't know, and hard to explain for those that do. Read up on Robert E. Lee if you would, or perhaps Admiral Horatio Nelson would be a bit closer to home for you, whom on a cursory glance had a reputation for valor and duty, those two concepts being close in connection to it.

When you say 'honor', are you referring to when you started accusing me of your paranoid delusions because I trashed your idea?
Look, if you wanna make some sort of /mlpol/ fighting/gaming league, knock yourself out. Then, if you want to challenge assholes to a match, have at it. But dont expect whatever you do to have any legitimacy outside of any personally and individually agreed (read: a gentleman's contract) scope or contest. Competition is fine, and I admit such a situation could help individuals to settle their differences, but that is not something that should have any weight in an argument, and the idea that it 'should' ought to raise alarm bells.

Yeah that's a fair assessment to espouse. Just don't tell me to get fucked or generally act disrespectful towards me or we're going to have a problem. Everyone's got a line pal, and I've been gracious enough thus far to look past both the times you've crossed mine.

Fucking hell. There was a time when the cesspool site cough 4cuck cough was considered a hurtbox. Usually shanked with truth, and at times empty words.
I mean way wayyyy more brutal. Just ripping people to shreds and the only thing keeping it from going overboard was anonymity and the quantity of posts speeding by.
So to be frank that's not going to work here. Even if there was a bloodbath thread/board jimmies are going to be rustled. This doesn't give something that bonds people together with, heck the only thing that the hurtbox gave to bond over with was painful truth.
That's why blood feuds were a thing as people kept going back and forth getting revenge for sullying the family honor.
Destroying good people and their lineage.

Okay, but the inverse is also true. Not going into full retaliation to the strike is where we are at now. As in many traditions and people have been chipped away and washed out by fuckers. It brings about the snobbery and backstabbing.

So fine the two far ends have their problems, but surely something can be done about people calling each other faggots or fuckwads right?
Well technically yes, use more creative insults. But to be fair the real issue is that spillover into other threads is the issue along with it being seemingly unending.
The solution is just as simple rule 1 rule 2 thread. You have shit to unload do it there. What happens in rule 1 rule 2 threads says in rule 1 rule 2 thread.

Okay, but some threads have a... visitor of the monetary sort with an agenda, or someone from a hugbox who stumbled here as stated hoers pussy and truth works together 99.99% of the time.
Okay but that didn't really solve the issue because it's about ego and the feelings. On the other hand seeing the same dude say the same things can be aggrovating.
But honestly being able to say fuck off to what is essentially psychological w... fisty cuffs of big scale is a handy skill to refine, and then turn that barb around.

Okay so that's part A the /pol/
>>148173
This is now part B the /mlp/
The friendship part
>>147208
>>148038
So hear me out, cooperative games/activities.
Instead of shank of truth where is smarts quite a bit, it's the velvety glove of truth to softly strangle the best a person can be by their own will. Basically advanced trickery, but everyone is having a great time aka leadership and follower dynamics (they alternate an dhappen at the same time to lead both parties to better places).
There are six principles that govern it and I'll just reiterate them.
Laughter
Kindness
Generosity
Honesty
Loyalty
Friendship (magic which in part also means actively pursuing friendship)

So the reasoning stands that a spectator game (or one with even more players) could work to enhance bonds and sooth ego (usually by way of working well as a team does accomplish more, even if in different ways).
This six part system is also a quantifiable metric (to an extent).
With that said instead of a means to ridicule and demean, it ought to be used to build up and improve while also providing good sunshine examples.
All of the above have to be done in good faith, even if it's grumbling good faith. That means if someone gets suckered punched it's going to hurt more, and that's counterproductive.
A common goal that is to be entertaining, completing the objective, and strengthening friendship.

Okay so both parts are not actually mutually exclusive. They work extremely well together. In every aspect.
So what just keep blasting each other with truth designed to maximize harm and somehow friendship? Well.. I mean... it could work...
Nah, tactics, efficiency, effectiveness, and redundancy points that bring stuck in a corner with someone is a pretty neat place to find friends. Even by happenstance.
So the Friendship part has to be taken into account for all matters.
Even in truth speedy poking matches with gibblets spewing everywhere.

So why bring this up?
Common goals. Commies tend to put their asinine whatever crap as their one and onky thing they offer. They don't really have true true friends. They themselves don't exhibit friendship.
So we're not Globalist (((fuckwads))) yay us.
We're also quite different at times as well with disagreements and such.
Sometimes amazing things can only happen when certain people come into contact through different times and circumstances to have be done.
Being in a shitstorm flinging match and mutual jokes is a good time. So is watching people do something amazing!
Even when the activity is seemingly meaningless on the grand scale small acts bring us all closer to friendship and truth.
Because those small acts are what actually destroy evil from creeping in, and brings about good into the world and ourselves.
While learning /mlpol/ lessons along the way.
<The fuck are you saying zigger.
Punch people with friendship in heart and in hand only playing by truth, while also getting punched by friendship.

More exactly 1v1 and multiple people are both valid, just gotta be painfully true at all times with friendship.

So when I call someone a fucktarded assblasted halfcocked nohooves lover. That's not actually completely true, just uhhh expressing the feelings inside in a neither constructive nor destructive manner, but the intent afterward and deep down under the rage and disbelief is friendship and truth... somewhere
That didn't mean the words are all that effective, but it does mean they could do with a tune up for maximum penetration.

Regarding the Formal Challenge of a Duel

From the get-go I've known you as an insufferable piece of shit with a projected and well-earned inferiority complex befitting only a transsexual or a communist. You have no honor, and I can count on you only to take the lowest and most cowardly route possible in any discussion that has the displeasure of accommodating your conniving and spiteful presence, as you obviously have no nuts and all you can do is bark without bite, wastrel cur that you are.
You also can't help but take your anger at being rightfully kicked off of the moderation team out on unsuspecting anons and disturbing the peace, without putting forth any helpful arguments of your own, and expressly trying to drag everyone else with your shitty attitude; I encourage all anons to see >>>/qa/5921 → in case they want to have a laugh at this very anon bitching and moaning, and as I quote, getting "bitch slapped" by the moderation staff over the ban regarding his infantile behavior in this very thread, and has been given every chance up until this point to take it back, far more many times than the likes of him deserve.
Thus, I hereby formally challenge you to pull the rainbowed dildo out of your otherwise gaping asshole and to an internet duel, date and game to be determined. At this point I think three months without your presence on this website would be bliss, and since fair's fair and I consider myself a generous man, should I lose I won't count the time I've already spent off in self-imposed exile.

So what will it be? Will you stand and fight like a man, or shall you cower like a dog?

Now who's derailing?
The issue attempted to be addressed in that thread was that moderation has abandoned the rules (until the recent amendment, which is its self a blanket pass to violate the rules, but at least its there) and was making shit up. That's been resolved, ish.
To your other point, let's be clear. I am not a nice person. If you want nice, why are you on the internet? My candor rustles your jimmies? You think I'm insufferable? Great. So do the mods btw, which in spite of their posturing, I was the black sheep because I told people to get off their ass and amend the policy page (not exclusively, theres other shit that they are wilfully derelict at, but my main gripe is resolved so we'll leave those). Your welcome, it only took a year and some of the most extreme badgering I've ever engaged in. And notice how readily it was amended even in spite of assurances that 'its hard' and 'getting people to agree' and whatever other excuses I've forgotten. Horseshit.
But I digress.
Are you really so thin skinned that you get triggered when someone tells you to get fucked? Are you expecting accommodation from some guy on the internet?
Let's check the record. You accused me of doxing, derailing, et al because I was mean in my refutation of your premise.
Oh,but I'm the one with no honor. Pull the other one.
Well let me address your challenge.
Get fucked
>will you stand and fight or will you cower like a dog

If he backed down, apologized tearfully, and took back every complaint he ever had about the inconsistent application of staff policies just because you called him a faggot for not loving your internet duels idea, how would that make him more masculine? If he was temp banned or permabanned, that wouldn't make his complaints about policy illegitimate. Only marxists think the use of unaccountable force makes you "right". Internet duels are a worthless idea as most adults have more to do than practice one game for hours every day. But if staff policies are improved, everyone wins.

The discussion was had, and the reasons pointed out. For and against and what honor or 'honor' is. At the core the difference is the freedom of speech vs honor/feelings. As was discussed only fellow poners who have a modicum of mutual respect would fully engage. Since there would be mutual respect for this to happen the duel is largely for show and entertainment.
<issue a challenge to give way to the feelings, and then also pull up past history irrelevant to the current challenge as bait
<nah here's what I did get thicker skin fuck off
Now I could needle people on finer details. So I'm not.

In any case a prime example on how the fuck not to issue an internet challenge.

Why would this place spontaneously become a ghost town just because the duel idea is more retarded than anything anyone else has ever said on this site? Yes, users here have a habit of jumping down the throat of anyone who makes a thread they don't like. But this thread is silly.
Being a man doesn't mean leaping with fists raised every time someone tells you to jump. It's about fighting to protect what you believe in, not getting baited into distractions for the sake of ego. Maybe if this was one forum focused on one game it would make sense to resolve personal disputes through that gaming medium everyone present cares about. But this isn't supposed to be a site for petty personal disputes, this is a site for serious political discussion except fun is allowed. Then again gaming is kind of degenerate. Do you really improve skills when you game or just grind away for hours hoping for dopamine and "prestige"?

Yes. If you play in degenerate ways you get degenerate prizes.

If you want something wholesome you gotta extract it. It's where agency and applied skill works in a relatively short time span to see your fruits in motion.

Hey wait a minute, I think that means I actually won by default.

Trumpet Sounds

Let it be known that whenever the hell this dumb shit took place, Ninjas the tranny got utterly assraped in full display of everyone and liked it like a good little slut. Quite literally didn't even have the balls to put up a fight like a man, because "she" knew she would be utterly decimated. You know you could've just chosen a champion, right? Ah, whatever.

See this, nobody took it up. Winner by default.
Nobody else fucking 'won' in anything. I'm sure this is the medical woowoo coursing through talking, but look at this pic.

Neither of you niggers "won". You're both retards who convinced nobody but yourselves.
