Unpopular opinions

    Entire, but mostly to do with Code Geass being a niche series. As I said, yes, overall its slightly less popular than FMA:B and Death Note, but still massive. Lelouch is a massively well known anime character which wouldn't be possible if it was a niche series. As for the popularity contest part, it's 50-50. Yes, certain anime do see more wins, but it's to do ultimately with people liking those series a lot over others. Why I feel this is flawed (face-offs being a popularity contest) is that Pokémon characters are definitely more well known here than even FMA:B and Code Geass characters (Well duh since its a Pokémon forum), but they are the first to be eliminated, only because people realise they aren't in the same league.

    I see. You seem quite focused on the part where I said it was a niche series, interesting. Anyways, what about the main question I'm proposing? About the Face-Offs.

    Yeah I added to my previous post regarding that.

    What about the claims that Code Geass, a less-popular franchise than that of FMA, dominating in many cross-over matches where FMA is prominent and often wiped out early? You use Pokemon a lot but when they say dominating, they don't just claim Pokemon but just every other series in-general.

    How is FMA wiped out early though? Barring the one time Edward got eliminated in W/H, FMA:B and its characters always tend to reach very far. It was the winner of the original anime face-off, and it's characters have reached very far in character based face-offs as well.

    On a different unpopular note, I'm not that excited for the upcoming Star Wars movie. I want something new, not more of the same.

    That was me in regards to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Ended up turning it off around 20 minutes into the movie. Wanted to like it, but I honestly wasn't all that excited by it and didn't like the characters that much.

    Eh, Rogue One wasn't my cup of tea. I'm one of the rare people that actually likes the prequels....Well, besides Attack of the Clones. I didn't care much for that film. However, I did enjoy Revenge of the Sith and Phantom Menace.

    Formally speaking you could think of face-offs as a ‘weighted’ fan interest contest where the ‘weight’ of each voter’s preference is determined by how close to ‘optimally’ they vote with optimal in this context meaning always voting precisely as one’s cooldown time is over in any given match. If you wanted face-offs to be closer to a pure popularity contest, then you would use a format where anyone can cast a vote within a set amount of time (e.g. 5 days), but each member can vote only once.

    Let’s say popularity means which show is more well known within a given community. There’s no concrete evidence that within this forum 1 is more popular than the other. If we were to go by MAL metrics of popularity, then FMA:B have about 1,4 million users that are aware of it while CG has about 1.1 million which in other words mean within the community of MAL slightly over 25% more users know of FMA:B than they do CG. The thing is sppf has a far smaller sample size than MAL does in member count, hence it would be fallacious to say that the relative popularity of shows in sppf need conform to that of broader communities like MAL.

    Literally who barring Terrance complains about stuff like this?

    Your belief is objectively false barring the case where everything that isn’t pokémon should be a niche compared to pokémon within this forum since this is by definition a pokémon based forum. FMA:B is seemingly more popular than CG within the broader anime community; however, the difference isn’t as high as to claim CG is a niche compared to it. Like Akki already said what you’ve just described would be far better attributed to a show like Monster.

    With Pokémon it’s specifically the games. The anime and especially any of the manga would be huge niches relative to the games at least as of the current day. FMA:B isn’t even the most famous mainstream anime with both Death Note and Attack on Titan (at least the first season) being more well known based on the MAL popularity metric mentioned above.

    As a ‘dedicated fan’ of CG this is blatantly false. Matter of fact such tactics are primarily used for meme characters such as Gible and Shaggy (groups were created specifically to ensure these characters won their respective face-offs yet nothing of the sort was ever made for anything related to CG). While Pokémon should be far more popular than anything else around here, most people over here accept that it flat-out isn’t as nearly as good as legitimately high quality anime like CG or FMA:B. As previously mentioned you can’t definitively say 1 way or the other which show between CG and FMA:B is more popular over here specifically. Also the claim that FMA:B generally does significantly worse than CG is false (matter of fact in the first anime face-off FMA:B won and CG was eliminated in round 1).

    This really isn’t anything groundbreaking. If face-offs were really meant to be a popularity contest, then everyone would only vote once. Eventhough a face-off could be considered a weighted fan interest contest, it isn’t even a particularly reliable metric for determining that due to factors like relative real life obligations of the voters during any given match (which even includes sleep since people from many different timezones use this forum). At the end of the day face-offs don’t reliably convey anything meaningful about community consensus around here and anyone who wants to use face-off outcomes to claim X > Y in any meaningful way is grossly misrepresenting what these outcomes actually mean.

    The real objective of face-offs is to have a fun medium which facilitates social bonding amongst the members of sppf.

    Alright then. We are in agreement that this is a very unpopular opinion then right? Unfortunately I'm still lacking in information but I do not want to go any further off-topic. I will ask this though. Who is Terrance? Never heard of him.

    No idea if it is but the opinion that face-offs don’t measure popularity really shouldn’t be unpopular since anyone with the capacity for basic reasoning should be able to infer that face-off outcomes don’t convey anything meaningful regarding community consensus around here (never mind consensus in broader communities).

    Probably right. Kind of hard to see it as an unpopular opinion due to what you said.

    1. MCU is overrated franchise despite loving it, but it doesn't deserve this much praise/money.
    2.Captain Marvel doesn't deserve 1 billion dollars.
    3.DC has more potential than Marvel. I also wish DCEU in future destroys MCU box office and critic-wise.
    4.EndGame doesn't deserve to beat Titanic Box office wise(WW). Also, I am pretty sure it won't pass Avatar with all competition.
    5.Detective Pikachu will slow down EndGame's numbers.
    6.Musical movies are the worst.
    7.Disney is overrated company and Warner Bros is much better.
    8.PewDiePie is not that good Youtuber, he's getting stale and doesn't deserve much subscribers.

    13. I don't like those content creators on rise like Billie Eilish( whatever her name is), James Charles etc.
    14. Playing basketball/soccer and any other sport is much MUCH better than watching someone else do it( FIFA, NBA). Also, watching movies and series/Youtubers >> watching someone playing soccer/basketball.
    15.Doctors, lawyers, workers etc deserve to get more money than Youtubers and sport players.
    16.Actors/Actresses are much better than singers.
    17.Sport and fighting games like 2K and Fifa, MK, Tekken are bad/boring/repetitive
    18.Fallout 3 is better than Fallout 1 and 2.
    19.Cinematic games like Human Become Detroit, Heavy Rain are overrated.
    20.JRPGs except Pokemon and few more are bad.WRPGs like Fallout,ES and Borderlands are much better.
    21. DBS is actually fun series to watch but bad DBZ sequel.
    22.Many anime (except few like DBZ, OPM, Pokemon, Naruto) are cringe,weird and some even overrated and some cartoons are better.
    23. TWD was good but now is bad.
    24.Cartoons such as Adventure Time, Steven Universe and Gravity Falls are overrated.
    25.Disney's sitcoms like Zeke and Luther, Zack and Cody are not funny.
    26.Sitcom comedies like Everybody Loves Raymond and FP are better than slapstick ones.
    27. Talk show hosts like Kimmel, Fallon,Ellen are not funny. Conan O'Brien is the only funny one.
    28.Markiplier has changed to worse, he's unwatchable now.
    29. USA is overrated country, I find many countries way better to live than USA.
    30.Trump is better than Hillary.But Putin destroys Trump.

    It's better than the Star Wars franchise right now
    Agreed,Brie Larson has problems
    I hope it does surpass those 2 films unless Captain Marvel is the one to defeat Thanos
    I doubt it but we'll see
    Never liked High School Musical
    I never got why so many people like his content,I don't find him entertaining like a Tyrone Magnus
    Nas is the greatest rapper ever
    Yeah probably
    I like playing basketball as much as I like watching it on tv,but when it comes to soccer I like to play but don't like watching it.
    I agree with youtubers but not the sports athletes,they're multimillionares
    I got bored with Madden games but never got bored with NBA 2K games. Tekken > Mortal Kombat
    I wouldn't say that it's bad but just not as good as it's predecessors,there's people out there that believe that if you support DBS then you're not a true Dragon Ball fan and I don't agree with that.But for my ranking of each series.
    1.Dragon Ball
    2.Dragon Ball Z Kai
    3.Dragon Ball Z
    4.Dragon Ball Super
    5.Dragon Ball GT
    -JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
    -Fist of the North Star
    -Cowboy Bebop
    -Berserk
    -Black Lagoon
    I can't believe there's still new episodes of that show,I never even watched it.
    Yeah 90s and early 2000s cartoons are way better
    I actually liked Zack and Cody growing up.What about That So Raven and Even Stevens?
    My country can't catch a break
    Bernie 2020?

    CMButch Kanto is love. Kanto is life.

    I never liked Star wars ( I also think it's overrated), but LoTR> MCU.

    1. It won't pass Avatar 100%, because of competition.. Titanic, maybe, now why I wouldn't like to pass Titanic( or Avatar hypothetically). It took 10 years of craft to actually pass Titanic. Titanic from get-go without 10 years of build up created 2 billion dollars. That movie had no like story behind( in earlier movies ),no fans gathering/rising for 10 years. That's why EG doesn't deserve to pass Titanic. One-timer movies deserve to be number 1 or 2. I just hope whoever makes new one-timer like Avatar( at that time Avatar is one-timer) and Titanic, I hope it passes 3 billion.

    Did you see hype behind Pikachu? It will slow down EG, then comes John Wick 3, Aladdin( maybe) and Godzilla. Pretty sure EG will be dead near the May.Also, when IW came out it had Pets and DP2 as competition and they slowed it down. Now you have 4 blockbusters( JW can be also blockbuster) in May alone.

    PewDiePie was good in 2013 then he became s*it, then he became good in 2017-2018( liked his memes and Filthy Frank challenges). In 2019 he became stale.

    I don't see value in watching any sport except boxing/MMA. This is on same level for me as watching vlogs, aka someone else's life. Movie is acting, all is scripted, like WWE is, that's why watching WWE > Watching NBA. Can I play in movie? No, can I play in NBA? No.But can I do key things in those two? In movies? No. I need a camera, crew, money. But basketball? Yes. There are playgrounds, I have ball, friends. But Boxing/MMA is different because you don't actually do this like basketball, you don't fight/box IRL. I watch something I can't do( but do something I can do but I dislike watching it), like watching Dashie playing horror games. I can play horror games but I get scared,thus I watch Dashie play horror games, because I can't do it myself. Plus, watching a movie is better than watching a sport.In sports: you watch same thing with different people( catch ball run, shoot, repeat).But, in same genre movies like horror, you watch different story, setting, plot, pace etc. For me would be boring If I watched just MCU( same thing over and over).

    Athletes like Ronaldo or LeBron play with a ball, has a sponsor and gets millions of dollars. Doctor saves same LeBron from something gets paid like 30k. Sorry but that's not fair and it's stupid.Or Ronaldo plays with a ball and gets million. Firemen saves small kid, gets 20k. LeBron just trains, at least actors like RDJ have to to all kind of stuff, like reading script, acting that , make up etc, spend like weeks and weeks to create a movie. LeBron or Messi do it in 2hours. Please. Athletes don't deserve more money than lawyers, doctors, firemen.The only good thing with athletes( not all) is they donate.

    2K is same s*it all over again, like Fifa. You have a team and you play. That's actually bad. Real games are Fallout, Borderlands, where you have actual plot, strategy, actual action, experience.2K is just basketball for nerds who can't play real thing on playground.I play it why would I watch NBA and play basketball games when I have real thing that's easy to have?You have playground you have ball and you have friends, why would I spent money on 2K game or by watching a game where can I watch a movie? If I had Fallout IRL, I wouldn't play game, I'd do it IRL( if it's easy as a basketball financially).

    DBS is not bad fun-wise, but impact,emotion wise it's bad compared to DBZ. I liked Z and C back when I was a kid, but now they're bad. I don't watch them( So Raven and Stevens).

    Have you noticed that a chunk of EA's fanbase or whatever left of it has this love-hate on-and-off again relationship with EA during E3's and game launches?

    I freaking love E3 presentations but EA is usually the worst but there's always that one game that makes all the EA fans saying EA sucks into suddenly "GIVE EA A CHANCE!". I recall seeing this as far back as Battlefield 4 all the way through Star Wars Battlefront, Battlefront 2, Mass Effect Andromeda, the EA fans just become amazed saying "GIVE EA A CHANCE!" for the past five years. However when these games hit, suddenly these same EA fans are like "YOU MESSED UP EA!" but suddenly when the Anthem trailer shows up or the latest Dragon Age trailer shows up, they are like, "GIVE EA A CHANCE!" all over again. Grant it I will admit. Dragon Age Inquisition was okay and Respawn Entertainment surprised us all with Apex Legends. Anyways, the point is, EA just has the strangest fans.

    Regardless if you know how to play basketball or not.What makes the WWE more entertaining than the NBA?
    That isn't always true
    DBS critics and DBS haters just need to stop comparing it to DBZ and DB and just watch it for what it is and enjoy the series and if you still don't like it then just stop watching.
