the legend of korra

I know how you feel. Pro bending was so boring but I kind of felt like that with Korra overall. Blitzball sucks but you can recruit some really good players to make it easy and go fast. Brother alone can kite the entire team to the other end of the map and give you free shots with Tidus.

As a British man does this not sound utterly ridiculous to you?

Pro bending was meant to simulate MMA as evidenced by the actual mixing of martial arts/bending styles. Two MMA fighters are credited by the creators as "providing a lot of the moves you'll see in the arena".

It was an awesome way to show how bending had evolved in style and application in the 70 years since TLA.

Pro bending was stupid, but Quidditch gave us a good game.

You gotta play one Blitzball game and you can literally just stone out and just press the buttons to attack/break through when applicable and still go on with the game even without winning.

Final Fantasy 10 to be specific. it's kinda like underwater soccer. it's not as cool as it sounds though. most of blitzball is optional. there is a whole league you can play through but you don't have to do it. however at one point in the story you are required to complete a full game of blitzball to progress. that's the worst moment in the entire game

Filled the F-Zero gap with how breakneck fast it could get.

Seriously, why would any other position exist when the game is literally only decided by whoever catches the snitch? It literally only exists to give Harry another place to excel, and Rowling gave no regard for how much it breaks the game.

Blitzball was great but becomes far too easy and becomes a chore.

I'm not gonna lie, I wrote some embarrassing Harry Potter fanfiction back in the day that actually centered around quidditch but I changed the rules.

I had the seeker play as a 4th chaser. catching the snitch autowins you the game, but you can only catch the snitch when your team is up. so while your seeker is off trying to catch the snitch it's a 3v4 for regular quaffle play.

that was the best I could come up with.

Literally one game. That is supposed to be incredibly hard. And it doesn't matter if you win or lose. Hell, all the times I played it, I've that match ONCE.

Pod racing was one of two great parts of Episode one. The fight against Maul being the other.

A minimum score + being up + catching the snitch is not a bad ruleset. It's not unlike tennis, in a way.

Fun story about that quidditch thing, was watching that Internship movie and they play it, and the wife was like oh shit theyre playing this and I was honestly amazed and surprised it was an actual thing. Still dont have the slightest idea of what it is except it was with Harry Potter and from the movie it looks like a fucked up soccer football field hockey thing.
