Wait a sec guys, heres a good one to help in better pointing out Lux's bullshit. For this I will need the help of Lux himself, or rather a previous post of his:

As I stated in the Halo Mythos, the game is the highest form of canon with the books being secondary. When an example from the books is contrasted by the game, then the games example is taken in place. However all examples from the books are valid as long as they are not made invalid by the game.
And now we have him directly contradicting himself, since now the stuff from the games is clearly not the end all be all.

My dear fellow apparition of reality Darkreever, allow me to bring you clarity upon the concepts you seem to be befuddled by.

All takings from the book are canon as long as they do not discredit the showings in the games, that is how multiple levels of canon work when operating with one another.

So tell me, what exactly is it you are trying to convey but are apparently confounded by, due to a lack on abstract processing?

I am here to assist thee my fellow....entity.

For the record, everyone, I'm sorry. I may have just killed us all.

Read and you shall understand why he is now using the word "entity" and the words "apparition of reality" to describe darkreever and soon, us. Again, sorry. Didn't think that one post would drive him over the edge. Sorry.

The spartans would in all likelihood would pick up the enemy baneblades, thunderhawks and start wielding them as melee weapons against the astartes,
Is that while they are also launching fire balls from their asses?

Seriously do you even read the "facts" (read that as bollacks) you post? A spartan who is what 8 foot tall if going to wield a thunderhawk which is over 26 meters long as a melee weapon?

That explains why a punch from a Spartan sends a grunt flying into outer atmosphere then...

It is not my fault in any way if your knowledge of the Halo Mythos is limited purely to the digital games, there is a plethora of licensed books on the series.
I don't deny that, I'm just not interested in reading them. If you want to sight some, then do so, if you want to criticize my literary choices, then eat a dick pavlova.

Where as spartans being too fast for a space marine to track is a bunch of shit, in the books, they can indeed run much faster than normal humans. They are capable of running about 55 km/h outside of their armor with Kelly being able to run a little faster. Inside their armor, their movement speed is increased. Kelly's increased to 62 km/h. In a training exercise (where his life was put on the line because of a jackass admiral wanting to truly test out their abilities and hopefully kill him in the process), John was able to briefly run at 105 km/h but tore his achilles tendon because it wasn't able to endure the stress.
Thanks DeathJester. That's not remotely ridiculous. It's also roughly equal to the speed of a Space Marine.

All takings from the book are canon as long as they do not discredit the showings in the games, that is how multiple levels of canon work when operating with one another.

The games depict Master Chiefs movement speeds a particular way (as I outlined in my last post). You say (and do not support) that the novels depict them differently. However, as you state earlier (as quoted by darkreever) the games are a higher canon. As you state now the books are only canon when they do not discredit the game. Therefore the movement speeds show in the game are accurate and canon, while those depicted in the books are not. "Abstract processing" has nothing to do with it. Logic does, which I think is why you are having trouble with it. I am here to assist thee my fellow... entity.

What's also worth remembering is that Spartan IIs are fond of spawncamping with snipers, so if by some chance they do kill a Space Marine, they can just keep killing him every time he respawns until he ragequits.

Even though I been gone a near year, Vaz still hates these threads lol.

Somethings never change. Like these Who would win threads. :so_happy:
You and Vaz are part of these threads. There ALWAYS has to be one who says "I will kill the first _insert something_ I see if I see another one of these" and one who says "These threads are (always the same/just like the last one)"

Why I let myself get sucked into these I'll never know, but this is by far the stupidest one.

More agile and likely as strong......You clearly have no idea how insanely fast and strong Astartes are. I've always liked this quote from Know No Fear to really show just how fast an Astartes reactions are, nothing I've played or seen shows the Spartans to have even remotely comparable reflexes.
AWESOME!!!! KNOW NO FEAR lol what an epic call forgot never knew how awesome that line was till some one else spelt it out to me.

P.S pity about the result. :angry:
