I suppose your only argument here is "Because we don't currently have giant mechs IRL, clearly it is shot in its basis in physics." Sorry, my good chum, but in that you are wrong. The physics of a mech has been around forever, we already have them on smaller scales. The problem is more in the mechanical engineering and material properties necessary to make it worth the (considerable) investment. If you want to get technical, we probably don't have the necessary physics for the engine thrusters to recreate giant mech mechanics exactly, but we're certainly not far out.Jerichi Veronus wrote:We're talking about giant mechs battling each other, pretty sure in this realm both reason and physics are kinda shot in one way or another.
It is, however, unreasonable to go "LAWL MY ROBOT CAN HAZ STEPZ ON GALAXIEZ." I mean, the shear effect of the gravitational field caused by that mech would cause the entire universe to orbit it and inevitably collapse when it came into existence. Sorry, but there's definitely a point when it goes from 'wicked cool' to 'just too far.'
Why? ACs are the size of Optimus Prime easily and his style would kick the shit out of the Autobot. Furthermore, size isn't everything, as it's maneuverable enough to best even the biggest of the listed titans. Short of the guy that steps on galaxies, who I don't even consider a plausible option in the poll because he'd destroy the universe (including himself) simply by existing, none of the listed mechs could top 9-Ball.Jericho Veronus wrote:And while yes, Nine Ball does rape in AC2:AA, I must disagree with you and Kaome on how awesome he would hold up in said battle royale. Nine Ball rapes other Armored Core. His awesomeness is limited to how awesome he is compared to the other ACs you can build. So when put up against other mechs that surpass the limitations of the normal ACs, i.e. big ass cannons that can be fired on the move, I gotta say, he just doesn't hold up.
Shit, I bet 9-Ball could beat Wing Zero, Epyon, Shenlong, Sandrock, Deathscythe Hell, and Custom Heavyarms all at once. This isn't even considering how distinctly more badass 9-Ball is next to any of them. (Eat your heart out, Deathscythe)
