Due to the silliness of the Minty/Snake match this one has been moved a week earlythis match I'm running it alongside the Mercer/Altair one. Two face offs in the one week :)

About the only thing our two combatants share in this match is a penchant for hoody's. One's a deadly assassin able to blend into a crowd, climb tall buildings, kill with deadly precicision... but unable to swim. On the other hand if he hides for a few seconds succesfully he regereates all health so that's always a plus :D

The other is an experimental, shape shifting, mutant guy with amazing powers and resolience, able to run fast, jump high, fall large distances without suffereing damage, take on another's form,....too much to mentoin here, look at the link for more info.

Winner decided after one week's polling :D

Yeah even though I like Altair more, he'd get raped by Mercer lol.

I think this one is a No Contest... on the plus side, when Mercer wins, he can BECOME ALTAIR

Definitely Mercer. Altair's only advantage is stealth, but Mercer has in-fared (sp?) technology and long range weapons, so he wipes out Altairs only advantage.

Long story short, Mercer.

I'll stick with Altair, as an assassin he can blend as you say and hide untill the oppurtunity arises to lop the head off Mercer.+1 for Altair.

I hate when people mistake these threads for "Which game character do you like more".

As it's already been said Altair wouldn't stand a chance, Mercer gets my vote.

Altair would win easily.

As Altair climbs buildings and lives in the shadows before he makes an attack. As Mercer is running out in the open searching for Altair. Altair jumps out from behind/ontop/whatever and does a sneak attack.

Altair, he can just keep using counter ;)

The only way Altair could win this fight is if it was a vs collectible hunt. Altair's flags can actually be seen from a distance and on the map whereas the collectibles are bloody hard to see and I only ever saw em when up close }:(

EDIT : Or am I thinking inFamous... I can't remember. It was one of em.

I think everyone who chose and mentioned something about Mercer, said it right. There's not much else to say. Altair would so get owned. Gotta go with Mercer.

Ezio would beat them both with his dual knifes :p

but i'd have to say Mercer would thrash him over

Mercer can be just as stealthy as Altair, after all, he's able to transform into almost anyone. Which is probably more stealthy than hiding among monks while your weapons are still exposed. Or jumping into some bale of hay (Mercer has the heat vision thingy). Mercer would probably just sneak up on Altair and consume him. Or rape him with his whip fist.

Altairs knives wouldn't even do any real damage anyway. Mercer's able to survive hundreds of bullet impacts and even tank shots.

Oh, and running up to the top of the Empire State Building is somewhat different than climbing an old limestone shed in Damascus.

Nah, Altair doesn't stand a chance. Not even a small one.

But Mercer has in-fared vision >:(

But Mercer has in-fared vision >:( In-fared?! :p It's "infrared"... meaning the radiation's wavelength is longer than that of visible light, hence the "below red" (red having the longest wavelength of visible light).

He might do, but an assassin of Altair's caliber would still find a way to keep hidden ;).

it should be obvious!

mercer is inhuman
Altair is human
mercer cant die (watch the ending of prototype)
Altair most likely can die (desync)
so yeah...mercer all the way

Altair is much, much cooler but he'd get brutally owned. But how can you call this a fair fight? Alex Mercer is from like 20 (?, I never played the game just watched my friend play it) years in the future and Altair is from 1191, not exactly even odds.

08-10-2009, 02:43 PM
Mercer, as it would be rather hard to find him half the time, since he can absorb anyone, plus he has powers, and if Altair gets close, Mercer can just use the giant tentacle move and Altair will be no more ^^

altair isn't very popular to win is he?

gamechallenger
08-10-2009, 04:08 PM
it would be a close fight because altair has better weapons but mercer isn't very strong

As much as I'd like to vote for Altair, this will inevitably end with Mercer ripping Altair to shreds. (or something)

Altair. Simply because I hate prototype ;)

Ahhhh. I feel great reading that, I'm with you all the way.

I dunno,... he has 41% of the vote atm somehow. I'm amazed he's doing so well actually. Mercer can withstand bullets, is super strong, super fast, able to jump up buildings, fall long distances without suffering damage.....

it seemed a sure win for Mercer to me when I started it but maybe I'm wrong... :eek:

It's a vs fight guys, not a "who's your favorite character" poll.

I vote Altair.
His hoody is way better :p

Mercer all the way, I can't see how Altair could win that.

08-12-2009, 05:10 AM
This is retarded.. this isn't even close to being a fair fight.

Altair because I hate imba fights.. maybe if opponents had a chance against each other this might be interesting like the Vader and Wolverine face off.

08-12-2009, 05:11 AM
I'll go for Altair.

Mercer. Full body armor wipes out all Altair's weapons even stealth kills.

Blade to chop him in half, then consume and become Altair :O

Don't care how quite altair is...... if he can sneak past a shit load of sharp tendrils sticking out of the ground, well good for him.
But i doubt he'll be able to win when Mercer consumes him....

Alex would just impale Altair in a flash and rip him in half.Alex FTW

My vote goes to Altair. He can sneak, stealth kill, "blend in" with common people. Seems like the ultimate stealth warrior to me.

Plus, I've never played Prototype, so my vote is biased.

Mercer eats tanks, altair has never seen a tank.

Mercer Wins

Fatality.

i like AC more, so i'm sayin altair
even though mercer would easily win.

Gorilla Stomper

The commentary would be something like this:

"Altair uses blend!"
"But mercer doesn't fall for that trick due to him not being a 12th century city guard"
"Altair tries to scale the cage"
"Mercer grabs altair with a well timed whipfist attack"
"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH altair is quite literally in pieces, and for those of you at home that can't see this because of the huge fockin censored square, it is a mess down here, theres pieces of altair everywhere, he is definitely hurt"

Mercer - 1
Altair - 0

Well let's see...

Alex:
Stronger

Faster

More resilliant (dont know how to spell that)

Stealthier

Smarter (with all the scientists he's consumed, it's easy to say he's the smartest person on the planet)

More violent
_________

Altair:
Weaker

slower

less resilliant

less stealthy

not as smart

less violent
Outcome: Alex rips Altair to shreds in a quarter of a second. :woop:

If it hasn't sunk in for people who still are in favor of Altair, think about it.

Alex fights the entire US Military, a special forces group, a city filled with mutants by himself. How is Altair going to be a problem?
