Republic City Vs Columbia

Republic City Vs Columbia

Suggested by Sam

For this match we have Republic city (Legend of Korra) going up against Columbia (Bioshock infinite)

Columbia is after Boxer rebellion.

To be honest, not really sure waht we are comparing here, maybe Sam will fill in the blanks?

    For now I’l side with Republic City.
    City on land is a little more stable place in my eyes.

    OH, COME ON! SECOND AGAIN?!
    ___________________________
    Yeah, the RC looks more stable, seeing there is a chance of a city airship sinking to the abyss.

    Haven’t played this Bioshock yet, but if the others are anything to go off of, everyone’s basically an unstable drug addict and aren’t really that impressive combat wise. And like Parry said, I’m sure the city just gets sunk.

  4. Ranger Lowk July 18, 2014 at 9:08 am -      #4

    Yeah if Elizabeth is in Columbia, lot of people are getting bfr’d

  5. Neon Lord July 18, 2014 at 9:23 am -      #5

    If they park Columbia over the other city, any attempts to bring it will down will only ensure mutual annihilation.

    That actually seems like a cool idea.

    Prime elizabeth is omniscient. That combined with her ability to travel across infinite universe, potentially makes her omnipotent right? She could find a universe where she was born omnipotent with such knowledge.

    @kara
    Or a universe where everyone i n republic city instantly slips and breaks their necks at the same time.

  10. Ragnorke July 18, 2014 at 12:22 pm -      #10

    ” That combined with her ability to travel across infinite universe, potentially makes her omnipotent right?”

    Nope, not omnipotent. She is omniscient if we use “current incarnation” though.

  11. pimpmage July 18, 2014 at 12:28 pm -      #11

    She lost her omiscience with the dlc part 2 then died though. But that doesn’t matter since she has entangled herself through the infinite possibilities before that. Her current incarnation could be anything.

  12. The Amazing Dualgunner July 18, 2014 at 12:33 pm -      #12

    Hooray for ambiguous matches lol. Well if the cities are attacking each other, Columbia has a lot of spare buildings with magic helium to pelt Republic City with, but I’m not sure which city has more mass.

    Yeah but dat HUD in the right pic tho

  13. Ranger Lowk July 18, 2014 at 12:52 pm -      #13

    Not sure how dropping Columbia would go now the the spirit world has taken root in republic city. They’ve got giant sentient plant life backing them.

  14. OberHerr July 18, 2014 at 1:15 pm -      #14

    Elizabeth has essentially limitless potential, but she’s not omnipotent. She’s a extremely high level reality warper though.

    If Elizabeth is there, Columbia wins. If not? Well…I never really got the sense of scale on how big Columbia is, but it seemed REALLY big.

    But, I’d say benders are quite a bit more powerful than most vigors, and those area rare in Columbia. Though guns also change things….

  15. pimpmage July 18, 2014 at 6:28 pm -      #15

    “Elizabeth has essentially limitless potential, but she’s not omnipotent. She’s a extremely high level reality warper though.”

    Elizabeth is 100% capable of finding an omnipotent version of herself with omniscience mixed with essentially planeswalking. No doubt about it. Infinite possibilities means she could find a universe where she was born as a chair if she so felt.

  16. Alpha or Omega July 18, 2014 at 6:35 pm -      #16

    Unless there isn’t an omnipotent version of herself.
    Just because your omniscient and omnipresent doesn’t mean omnipotence is likely there.
    /
    For all we know, her omniscience tells her that there isn’t an omnipotent version of herself.
    That would have been useful in the game too.
    /
    *Spoiler*
    If there was an omnipotent version of her, she could have gotten her to remove Comstock by a different way than killing Booker DeWitt at the baptism herself.

  17. L-w July 18, 2014 at 6:51 pm -      #17

    Columbia’s armed forces (If you can call it that.)
    Is armed to the teeth with weapons. They have firearms which gives them an advantage. Coupled with the fact they have vigorous which make up for lack of bending and things like the zealot of the lady, the fireman, and the Handyman they have and advantage on ground. From what we saw from the United republic’s air force they are stuck with mostly pre-world war 1 Era fighters. Columbia has armed zeppelins and gunshots, so by the looks of it Columbia has and air advantage,too.

    Also Columbia does not get Elizabeth and the Republic city does not get the spirits.

  18. OberHerr July 18, 2014 at 6:55 pm -      #18

    @Pimpmage
    True I guess. Kinda does open up a lot of doors when you pop in the whole “infinite realities” thing…..I’d say its best we just assume she’s not in this fight.

    The only problem is, we have no idea of the actual size of Columbia, and its forces. And the biggest problem for them I’d say is I could certainly see RC being able to bring them down.

  19. pimpmage July 18, 2014 at 6:59 pm -      #19

    Well, since elizabeth is not in this, we still have the songbird. Shown to fly super fast and strong enough to tear apart metal structures and fly through airships.

    One of the omni words put my comment under moderation.
    /
    So, I will rephrase that.
    For all we know, there couldn’t be an “all-powerful” version of herself.
    Sure, it’s a possibility but just because “she’s all knowing” and “every-dimensional,” it doesn’t mean that there’s an “all-powerful” version of her. Alternatively, her “all-knowing” knowledge could have told her that there isn’t an omnipotent version of her.

  21. pimpmage July 18, 2014 at 7:12 pm -      #21

    “Alternatively, her “all-knowing” knowledge could have told her that there isn’t an omnipotent version of her.”

    Her all knowing mixed with infinite possibilities say otherwise. Saying something is a possibility with infinite possibilities means it is guaranteed.

  22. Alpha or Omega July 18, 2014 at 7:20 pm -      #22

    “Her all knowing mixed with infinite possibilities say otherwise.”
    /
    Infinite possibilities is pretty vague and it could mean a lot of things.
    Sure, you can infinite amount possibilities but omnipotence could not be among those infinite possibilities.

  23. pimpmage July 18, 2014 at 7:30 pm -      #23

    That is impossible. Completely contradictory.

  24. Alpha or Omega July 18, 2014 at 7:37 pm -      #24

    How is it impossible or contradictory?
    /
    Subtract one from infinity and you still have infinite.
    Same in this case. We don’t know that an all-powerful version of her is part of those infinite possibilities.

  25. OberHerr July 18, 2014 at 7:40 pm -      #25

    But since its infinite, we have infinite potential for her to be.

    Plus, with how the realities work in the Bioshock world, its an alternative version. So in one dimension, your rich. The other poor. In one you never were born. In another you were. In one your a normal mortal. In another, your an omniscient, omnipotent god.

    That is impossible too cassie. You cant possibly have every single elizabeth across infinite universes all die at the same place at the same time. Well… you could but there would still be infinite chance that anything else imaginable could happen.

    Also, if people cared about spoilers this long after the dlc releases, they shouldn’t be reading through a damned bioshock infinite match. Just sayin’.

    “But since its infinite, we have infinite potential for her to be”
    /
    Except endless possibilities mean an endless amount. An endless amount doesn’t mean she could be everything. There’s a huge difference.
    You can still have infinite possibilities without one thing possible.
    I don’t even think that’s what the developers meant by that either.

    I know what you are trying to say, but infinity can throw logic out the window. There is just as much of a chance as elizabeth being born male as every planet in the known universe turning to cheese on july 8th 2014, 8:59pm.

    But back to the match, bioshock has guns right? Does republic city have bullet timers or defenses against firearms? It ‘is’ and anime, I would expect some defense to be put up against columbia.

  31. OberHerr July 18, 2014 at 8:00 pm -      #31

    Because infinite is infinite. It means infinite potential.

    And yeah, that was always something that never made sense with Bioshock.

    *SPOILER ALERT*

    The idea that if you kill someone at one point it’d kill someone else at one point. The problem is, there would be alternative dimensions where Booker decided he didn’t wanna die and strangled the Elizabeth’s, or another where he turned into a fish using his magical wizard powers and swam away…..

    Regardless, there’s no proof that there could be an omnipotent possibility among the infinite possibilities.

    I’m not saying it’s impossible, I’m saying we don’t know if there’s an omnipotent version of her among the infinite versions of her.

    I just love the idea of Songbird flying at supersonic speeds annihilating the Republic’s air force. The zealot of the Lady is going to be a pain to any Bender who engages him in combat. And the best part is that there several of them.

  34. pimpmage July 18, 2014 at 8:11 pm -      #34

    If bioshock allowed omniscience from something as simple as traveling between planes, omnipotence is not far off.

    “Not all the time”

    Ok, you keep saying ‘possibly’ or other maybe ish phrases here. Anything is an absolute with infinity. You keep saying it ‘might’ be possible, that is just weird.

  35. Soulerous July 18, 2014 at 8:15 pm -      #35

    Is it being claimed that infinite possibilities necessarily implies the manifestation of each one?

    “If bioshock allowed omniscience from something as simple as traveling between planes, omnipotence is not far off.”

    Does omniscience prove that omnipotence exists?
    No.

    I love Songbird as much as anyone….but was he Supersonic? Cause I could have sworn he was fast…but Supersonic?

    “The zealot of the Lady is going to be a pain to any Bender who engages him in combat. And the best part is that there several of them.”

    Eh, they aren’t that tough. One lighting blast should do them in. Though thats another issue: how do we quantify how durable these guys are?

    Anyways, I doubt they would have much trouble honestly. Bloodlusted Avatar can be really dangerous.

  40. Ranger Lowk July 18, 2014 at 9:09 pm -      #40

    Guns and songbird might be easier to deal with thanks to the fact that a good deal of republic cities security force are metalbenders.
    Earth can give them cover and the fact that columbia’s weapons are metal allows them to mess with or disarm them from a distance.
    Likewise for songbird, they don’t really need to be able to fight him or keep up with him when a team of metalbender can mess up his metal or mechanical parts.
    ===
    As for the infnite thing. Would’t we only go with whats been shown like we do for all the other fictions on the site, like marvel?

  41. OberHerr July 18, 2014 at 9:50 pm -      #41

    Plus in LoK it seems like every Firebender can using Lightning. Add in how in the Avatarverse Fire is often quite explosive, and Metalbending, plus throw rocks at the platforms, and you got a recipe for Columbia to come crashing down.

  44. Ragnorke July 18, 2014 at 9:56 pm -      #44

    Why is anyone assuming infinite possibilities means an omnipotent version of her exists?
    A true omnipotent would be beyond a single universe, she would be multiversal.
    Literally god. Living in all times, in all places. Knowing everything and everyone.

    If an omnipotent version of her existed, she would have… made it clear to herself.

    It isn’t really a valid theory anyways.
    Does that mean one of the Spidermans in the marvel multiverse is omnipotenet? just caus there’s an infinite realities? Of course not.

  45. Parry Boy July 18, 2014 at 9:57 pm -      #45

    Not yet at post 50, I suppose, nobody would get past them without using the force, though.

    “everyone’s basically an unstable drug addict”

    Columbia has an elite police force and those dastardly Vox Populi. Which are also well trained.

    That being said, Lowk kind of nailed with. Most of Columbia needs weapons to fight. And stuff like Motorized Patriots are kind of useless against metal benders.

    Comstock’s beard reigns supreme though.

  51. OberHerr July 18, 2014 at 11:47 pm -      #51

    “Because obviously A bender is going to be able to put down a giant metal building buster flying at speeds that are nearly supersonic”

    Fair point, but it’s more than just a bender; Republic City’s police force is primarily metal benders. I think you’re right if the Songbird moved fast enough it could really mess some things up.

    Also Columbia has the superior air force IMO. Lots of zeppelins and zeppelins with fire power. Also I think that the zealots might be useful.

    This match is really cool, Columbia has a lot of offensive options and it’s in the sky, while Republic City could muster some pretty good defensives.

    But some of their heavy hitters are screwed; handymen and patriots.

    So does RC. We see at least two types (Police and Future Industries) and FI has planes and (I think?) tanks as shown in Season 1. The Zeppelins come from the current Season. Pled there’s all the other stuff FI makes.

    “Because obviously A bender is going to be able to put down a giant metal building buster flying at speeds that are nearly supersonic”

    1. Pretty sure I noted a team as in more then one.
    2. And they should have a better chance considering his wings uses metal gears to open close, its hands are covered in metal, and various othe part of metal that they could control.
    They don’t have to “put him down” when they can remotely disassemble him.
    ===
    “Does republic city have bullet timers or defenses against firearms?”

    Bunch of peak humans, no bullet timers I can recall. As for defense earthbender can create cover and make that cover mobile. The police all wear armors so that ahould help against the lower calibre stuff. Other then that every else just has to either take cover or be faster then the guy shooting.

  65. itisburgers July 19, 2014 at 12:24 pm -      #65

    Word of contention, Colombia canonically sacks a late 20th century New York near the end of the game. So I kind of doubt it’s as easy a popping balloons.

    Does Fink get his lutece device?

    Is Booker in Colombia?

    I also vote comstock’s beard for FP. “The Lord forgives everything. But I’m just a prophet… So I don’t have to. “

    Would it be outside help if columbia uses those twin’s portal machine to pull people from elsewhere in the bioshock verse? They have an active portal machine that produces tears to other universes just like what elizabeth can do.

  67. OberHerr July 19, 2014 at 2:05 pm -      #67

    I’d say it does count as outside help. Plus, it was unpredictable. Elizabeth was special because she could choose what to open and what to not, and could see whats different.

    Just to give a rundown of the various Heavy Hitters of Columbia….

    Firemen – Dudes that are basically made of fire. They are inside quite durable outfits that are basically what you would get if an old-timey diving suit had an affair with a old-timey stove.They throw fireballs, ram stuff, and I would assume can take a decent beating. So they could work against Firebenders…but since their suit is metal….you see where I’m going.

    Zealot of the Lady/Crow – Basically a Ku Klux Klan dude that turns into a flock of crows and flies around, and attacks you. Uses a sword up close. Doubtfull these will be an issue.

    Motorized Patriot – A VERY durable steampunk robot that looks like George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, etc. Uses a Gatling gun, and is pretty darn accurate. Could be a big problem from a distance, but once the metalbenders get to it, it’s not gonna be a problem.

    Hanyman – A big ass steampunk dude, EXTREMELY durable, very strong and agile….but its also made of metal, so…yeah same as Patriot.

    Beast – A normal human, but in very good body armor. Uses a rocket launcher or grenade launcher. Also has metal…..

    These last two are iffy on if they will actually be there, but we’ll debate that.

    Boys of Silence – Kinda pointless to add these, but basically they scream really loud and summon dudes. I don’t know how they would apply….but yeah.

    Siren – So this is probably the most dangerous one, but there is only one of her. She’s essentially a spirit, that can teleport around, turn intangible, scream loud enough to knock people back and kill people, resurrect the dead, and she can regenerate. She can be hurt by things where she isn’t intangible, but she is VERY durable. More so than Handymen.

  68. Ranger Lowk July 19, 2014 at 2:32 pm -      #68

    So after seeing Lin eject needles at high speeds, I think the only thing keeing avatar from having some form of gun or bullet like objects is it being on nick. I’d like to see them at least try and get around it, like metalbender using arrows or maybe someone who carries small pointed pieces of metal as ammo. Sort of like how tarrlok used ice on Korra.

    idk I had a funny post about dropping a statue but I digress. I don’t think Chi Blockers would be much of a threat tbh. Their swift and what not but could easily be shot whereas benders could probably handle guns better.

  70. OberHerr July 19, 2014 at 3:18 pm -      #70

    Yeah, the fact that it has to be kid friendly hold back a lot of the potential deadliness of Avatar. I mean, Bloodbending? Screw the controlling people, the amount of death you could cause with that is staggering. Not to mention if you can just use your mind to do it, like Amon and Tarrlok. And that’s not even getting into how careful a Bloodbender would have to be NOT to kill the person they were controlling.

    Then you throw in Metalbending, and every single Bender being able to make their respective element into a slicing or dart like projectile….and you seriously have some deadly shit.

    Highly advanced Columbia wrecked 1980’s New York. But it took them awhile to get to that level. It’d be interesting to see how a war driven Columbia would work. I’d PRESUME it would be similar to 40’s America. Although both sides have pretty good industrial complexes.

  72. OberHerr July 19, 2014 at 3:27 pm -      #72

    Chi Blockers are what convinced me that training in martial arts in Avatarverse makes you superhuman. Seriously. Those guys leap like thirty feat, dodge around like crazy, and manage to go toe to toe with people that can throw control the freaking earth! All without anything really special about them.

    @Nomad
    To be fair, I doubt Columbia could do much once the military actually arrived. I never got why they were supposed to be a threat anyways. They have some advanced stuff, yes, but nothing that should beat 80’s era stuff. It’s still pre-WWI era things in the end.

  73. Nomad July 19, 2014 at 3:28 pm -      #73

    Also don’t they have mechs of sorts?

  74. itisburgers July 19, 2014 at 3:29 pm -      #74

    @nomad
    Didn’t look more advanced, still had zeppelins and the same cannon shells from the finale siege.

  75. Ranger Lowk July 19, 2014 at 3:31 pm -      #75

    I forgot about the mecha tanks. They have big magnets so they can disarm people as well.

    “Didn’t look more advanced, still had zeppelins and the same cannon shells from the finale siege.”

    So I guess it had more to do with alt timeline Elizabeth with crazy hax powers then their technology. Not really a good sign for Columbia.

    I always got more of sort of steampunk vibe from Infinite, where LoK Avatar feels more dieselpunk to me. More so with anything Future Industries. I mean Asami’s car is this sleek aerodynamic machine, her planes all very advanced looking prop planes.

  78. OberHerr July 19, 2014 at 4:05 pm -      #78

    Oh yeah, the Mechs. I forgot exactly what they had besides the magnets. Didn’t they have some kind of tesla thing going?

  79. CH1C4N0444 is allergic to bullets July 19, 2014 at 4:14 pm -      #79

    “Didn’t they have some kind of tesla thing going?”

    They had baton like things that used electricity(I only remember a single Equalist using it though)and then Asami used that electrical gauntlet thing. That’s about the closest thing I can think of to “Tesla thing.”

    avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Mecha_tank

    Says here they either have two claws that can shoot out, grab, and electrocute people, or one claw and a magnet. Also they can shoot out discs that make a sort of bola thing that wraps around people and electrocutes people.

    And HOLY SHIT those things are made of pure platinum!

    I’ll take five!

    A pity Columbia doesn’t have Booker DeWitt’s rugged good looks and cynicism on their side.

    EDIT:

    Cool feature. What about that nifty shield that rebelled metal that the Luteces made? If not one of a kind that’d be really useful.

    “And HOLY SHIT those things are made of pure platinum!”

    Platinum isn’t a tough metal right? I thought it’s main use was its neutrality to most chemical effects.

  84. OberHerr July 19, 2014 at 7:22 pm -      #84

    It isn’t…..which is where the anime logic comes in. But damn if it doesn’t make you sound like a pimp!

    “Oh, Gundam, those mechs you got over there? Yeah, their cute…..but you know what my mechs are made of? PLATINUM MUTHAFUCKA!”

  85. Cassie Hack July 19, 2014 at 7:50 pm -      #85

    They were made out of platinum because of the purity of the metal, it prevented metal benders from bending them.

    “… What’s with the site? I’m absent a few days and the layout changes? I’m not okay with this.”

    Well the recent comments is higher up, which is sorta the only thing i look at. So thumbs up to that.

  89. Parry Boy July 19, 2014 at 10:33 pm -      #89

    Well there is the ups and downs
    +
    Recent comments is higher

  90. pimpmage July 19, 2014 at 11:07 pm -      #90

    I really hate the new layout. 99% of the time I am on BankGambling, I am on mobile. And the mobile verson of this site sucks so I only use desktop view. And now the recent comments section dissapeared completely. Its nowhere to be seen now :*(

    How am I going to keep an eye on debates now?!?!?

  91. OberHerr July 19, 2014 at 11:46 pm -      #91

    Wait, what changed?

    @Ober
    The recent comments section; it was moved WAY higher.

    ” what changed?”

    I think popular posts also got way smaller.

    Is there proof of non police benders knowing metalbending?

    I can’t recall mako doing any metalbending in the first season.

  99. Mr. happy July 21, 2014 at 1:55 am -      #99

    ‘I can’t recall mako doing any metalbending in the first season.’

    Mako is a firebender and Bolin is just trying to metalbend.

    “Is there proof of non police benders knowing metalbending?”

    In Republic City? Not that I know of, apparently only 1 in every 100 earth benders are good enough to learn it. Although, there’s an entire city filled with metal benders, but sadly it’s not in this debate.
