    I am not sure how it would meassure up to the grand scheme of web-related things, but I would be terribly inpacted as an individual. There might be other locations that could perform a “similar” function, I have quite honestly found the proverbial Geek Haven in this little corner of the webs.

    Where else could I have had intelligent discussions of my favorite characters transcending their fixated shperes of influence, at the same time as shutting down the ignorant and fanatic alike? Or where would I have seen the fruits of my suggestive contributions taken shape so swiftly? I know for a fact that my voice has been heard with surprising frequency by the powers-that-be.

    Yes, I think I would still be searching for that somewhere should BankGambling not have come to be, and that would be quite a waste.

    I would be very bored…and my need for a site like this would be unfulfilled…seriously this is the first site of it’s kind I found I mean there’s forums (like the Boba Fett Forum) but they only focus on one character…so anyway if BankGambling didn’t exist that would suck

    ha ha nice topic of discussion… and I go the answer for you.

    If BankGambling didn’t exist there would be no where for people to argue over there stupid opinions that are completely ridiculous pertaining to there fanboy loving characters,movies and games… Enough said..

  5. AlphaCommando March 10, 2009 at 9:22 am -      #5

    Same as Mata, without BankGambling I would spend just a little more time on the web mindlessly surfing Wikipedia instead of contributing to something….

    And Rob, you have to remember there are en elite few here who don’t devolve to fanboyism and opinions and look at stuff logically and factually, taking what we know about science, tactics, psychology, engineering and canon data and applying it to analysis of combat….

  6. Rob (Expertimp) March 10, 2009 at 11:10 am -      #6

    I agree Alpha… not all people on here are fan boys and do actually look at things logically and factually.

  7. Cpt Olimar March 10, 2009 at 11:32 am -      #7

    Lol, I just found this website by typing master chief vs samus on google….I just got 999 extra match ups as an added bonus O_o
    and a forum.

  8. Rob (Expertimp) March 10, 2009 at 2:07 pm -      #8

    How about you try : What if Halo didn’t exist? hehe

  9. Thepocalypse March 10, 2009 at 2:18 pm -      #9

    I would be talking to idiots instead of the elites of geekiness.

  10. marche March 10, 2009 at 3:13 pm -      #10

    i would still have toher sites for versus matches,like marvel.com

  11. Battra Boy March 10, 2009 at 3:58 pm -      #11

    I wouldn’t have a place to laugh at unjustified posts. :p

  12. fooby March 10, 2009 at 5:05 pm -      #12

    the world would not exist

  13. Onesidedfight March 10, 2009 at 6:22 pm -      #13

    This site can not not exiset, for the cosmic forces demand that a site like this be produced to settle the age old question: how many ways can we f&ck up mc?

  14. L-W March 10, 2009 at 8:40 pm -      #14

    Alas, similar to Mata and Alpha, I would either:

    A) Mindlessly wander the bowels of the internet seeking such an absence of companionship in the realms of nerdy discussion, most likely stumbling upon a Star Wars fan site where my talents would frequently go to waste due to an equal disposition.

    B) Spend more time with family and loved ones…Yeah right.

    C) Probably spend the night shift sitting in a cockpit of a mock up F-18 Hornet, pretending to shoot down the Chinese. Which may or not earn me a citation from the senior staff.

    D) Eradicate my boredom by hunting, thus reducing the local wildlife populations to critical levels.

    Admin, you should be commended for defiantly and successfully curbing my blood lust with this website alone, something that countless PETA members and Hardcore Vegans have failed to accomplish in the past. In fact let’s give admin a round of applause.

    Without BankGambling, a bunch of characters would be unknown to me…such as

    Dr Manhattan

    others as well, but I wouldn’t know half the stuff I do now had it not been for BankGambling…just like people here wouldn’t know about Dan or Glitch if it weren’t for me…but anyway I found this by accident because my friend said MC could beat Darth Vader…and you will never guess what he said would make him win…the Spartan Laser…just goes to show you how stupid Halo fans are that havent visited this site

  16. PaPPa JUDAS March 10, 2009 at 11:07 pm -      #16

    I wouldn’t have renewed my intrest in comics or 40k not that it matters my damn computer is to out of date to run DOW2

    I imagine without a site like this, one would have to be created. And as the Dmin would suddenly find himself with a lot more free time and the obvious abilty to do so, why would he not commit this genius act?

    Self perpetuating, neverending, BankGambling.

  19. Thepocalypse March 11, 2009 at 4:56 am -      #19

    I wouldn’t have found 40k, Death Note, Watchmen, and a lot of other great stuff!

  20. hotshot March 11, 2009 at 7:06 am -      #20

    BankGambling is the best forum so i would die

  21. zach March 11, 2009 at 7:19 am -      #21

    Huge fail nerds would have no where to piss people off!

    “my damn computer is to out of date to run DOW2″

    Thats not cool, man. Not cool at all. That’s something that MUST be rectified soon!

  23. Matapiojo March 11, 2009 at 8:46 am -      #23

    “I would never see the word ROLFSTOMP!!!!!”

    THATS what I’m talking about!!!

  24. L-W March 11, 2009 at 8:59 am -      #24

    Send me $300 and a Midget and I will build you a Computer so powerful that it would demand your life force in exchange for even touching it. That’s most likely a hyperbole, but for around $300-400 you build a machine capable of playing Crysis with every graphical option set to it’s highest, never mind DOW2.

    Not cheap for a sudden spur of the moment purchase, but a powerful PC is always a good investment. And who knows? Perhaps you only require a new VFX card or CPU.

  25. Tim March 11, 2009 at 9:05 am -      #25

    I found this website by accident and I’m so glad I did, it’s now my favourite website and I go on it more then I go on any other site. If it didn’t exist I would probably have nowhere to discuss character battles with like minded people and would find the internet far less interesting. Before I found this site I only knew one person who enjoyed discusing this kind of thing.

  26. Jwlynas March 11, 2009 at 9:40 am -      #26

    L-W, I might just take you up on that, even if the offer was to another. However you’ll have to settle for pounds sterling and a child or equal or similar height and weight to a midget.

    Admin, this thread must be great for your self esteem ^^

  27. L-W March 11, 2009 at 9:48 am -      #27

    Due to Child labor laws I cannot accept a minor, yet somehow a drugged and dazed Midget is perfectly acceptable in the eyes of the law.

    What a crazy world we live in.

  28. admin March 11, 2009 at 9:50 am -      #28

    @Jwlynas – “Admin, this thread must be great for your self esteem” – I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t nice to hear. There’s a lot that goes on “under the hood” that never gets taken into account for – upgrades, checking the posts, research and time spent finding the images. But, it’s all worth it knowing that we’ve created something unique on the Internet, and that’s no easy task.

    However, while a lot of time is spent creating the matches, this site would never have gotten this far if it wasn’t for all the input from you, the readers. Almost everyday someone suggests a character that I’ve never heard of, and it’s a great voyage of discovery to learn about yet another character in their universe.

    So, hearing these comments makes it easy to keep going when human nature sets in and trys to distract me from continuing on with the evolution of this site.

    Thanks again!

    Paul (Admin)

    Man, thanks to all of you, Lobo has become part of my regular character dictionary…same with Kharn…and face it, without me there would be no one to fill in the place for over supporting Dan!!! Mwhahahahahaha!!!!! Anyway, I didn’t know it was really that hard to find images (unless you find a hard to find image or something) but I understand how hard the battle archives were, I just didn’t know how to thank you properly

    How short must this midget be my good sir?

    OH GOD NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. kano547 March 11, 2009 at 3:35 pm -      #32

    i would know alot less than i do now about my favorite comic character’s. and my web search of marneus calgar would have had different results instead of showing me calgar vs darth vader (btw why did you delete that one?)plus i have looked hard and this is the only site like this ive found and without it i would never ahve had the fun of picturing in my head goku and the hulk beating the hell out of each other

  33. admin March 11, 2009 at 3:47 pm -      #33

    @kano547 – Here’s the url, we restructured the site, and it has caused a couple of hiccups: BankGambling.com/marneus-calgar-vs-darth-vader

  34. hellatus March 11, 2009 at 6:19 pm -      #34

    if BankGambling did not exist what would u be doing right now admin?

  35. hellatus March 11, 2009 at 6:31 pm -      #35

    would u be miserable?

  36. admin March 11, 2009 at 7:05 pm -      #36

    @hellatus “if BankGambling did not exist what would u be doing right now admin?” – I’d prolly be working on some of my other sites – I have a guitar blog, hockey blog and some video game cheat sites – I’d probably be working on one of those sites to grow them more, but alas, BankGambling gets #1 priority.

  37. =[BF]=JimmieRox March 11, 2009 at 7:43 pm -      #37

    Hmm, no BankGambling eh? I guess I’d probably spend a ridiculous amount of money on a subscription for WoW or EVE and have spent even more cash on video games rather than just a merely moderate amount of money on new games and no subscription! That, or I’d be able to land a hell of a lot more tricks.

    “How short must this midget be my good sir?”

    Considering I need an extremely short person to get to all the places I cannot reach, three feet tall.

  39. Thepocalypse March 12, 2009 at 5:27 am -      #39

    “Considering I need an extremely short person to get to all the places I cannot reach, three feet tall.”
    DONE! Now to figure out what size crate is needed to ship an abnormally small person internationally.

  40. Space marine March 13, 2009 at 1:29 am -      #40

    No! Irish are to Silly, You need cuban Midgets.

  41. Matapiojo March 13, 2009 at 8:38 am -      #41

    “You need cuban Midgets.”

    I’m sure Castro would have something to say about that…

  42. doommunchkin March 15, 2009 at 3:03 am -      #42

    Who says castro wasnt a midget?

  43. Vicious 117 March 18, 2009 at 6:53 pm -      #43

    If it did not exist, there would be a great empty-ness for people to let out their inner nerd (for those who cant let shit go yes me too)
    I personally love the topics on the site, and im not gonna let a few people piss me off to the point i hate the site. All said, i think it would suck if this site didnt exist, but in the reality of things it wouldnt matter.

    THankfully it still exists right?
    minus the dicks on here

  44. Joe Brosnan April 2, 2009 at 1:00 pm -      #44

    The first forum on BankGambling I went on was ‘energy sword vs lightsaber’ on which I’ve written a very very very … very dumb reaction. So if BankGambling wouldn’t exist,
    1. I wouldn’t know whether lightsaber was stronger or energy sword.
    2. I wouldn’t have embarassed myself in a debate.
    3. I wouldn’t be able to speak to all of you.

    That’s it, more or less.

  45. sangheli_special_ops_elite April 18, 2009 at 7:13 pm -      #45

    THE WORLD WOULD SEISE TO EXIST AS WE KNOW IT. and mccain would have won as president and dick cheney would have been killed by a plane that landed on him.

  48. Pondering Fool September 26, 2009 at 11:21 pm -      #48

    I have found this thread…..and have seen a dark vision. Life without BankGambling…….the darkness is too great to comprehend. But thankfully, that has not happened and life goes on. But if it did happen……..nah, don’t want to think of bad thoughts.

    – the pondering fool

  49. Drayflare September 26, 2009 at 11:36 pm -      #49

    BankGambling gives me a place to let my nerd out so it doesn’t come out in front of my friends.

  50. Megaraptor18 September 26, 2009 at 11:40 pm -      #50

    I live in the middle of the country this is only place were I talk too people

  51. Kenny C. September 27, 2009 at 12:18 am -      #51

    @ Mega

    What are you? A hyper conservative, survivalist, hard-assed army vet?

  52. Megaraptor18 September 27, 2009 at 12:31 am -      #52

    I think it is time for me to explain myself to you folks in the forum in my intro. Before I do it I have to do a few things.

    “A hyper conservative”

    I do lean towards conservative view on many issues I’m more of a National Security Conservative than anything else


    Not there yet

    “hard-assed army vet”

    Nope but I do learn alot about history mainly military history

  53. Envoy December 5, 2009 at 7:05 pm -      #53

    This tould have happened:

    …I’m SO unoriginal :(

  54. atlantis February 15, 2010 at 1:11 pm -      #54

    For some odd reason no one wants to talk to me in real life because I’m a nerd and come up with some crazy things that no one wants to be around me. Things have slightly increased to the better on fact pile although some words here on fact pile I would very much like if they disappeared into a black hole never to be seen again…I am not being judgemental
