spanner-mallet
« on: March 27, 2015, 03:57:48 am »
So, there are some individuals who believe mallet in first slot and spanner in second is correct order, but what they don't know is that they are WRONG! Because spanner-mallet-chem/ext/buff is the way to go! I'm glad you agree, thank you!  :P

EDIT: WRONG FORUM :(

Wait, wait, wait... Me and Ayetach were talking private message about a spanner-mallet, mallet-spanner poll thread. How did it get out?

I call forum espionage!  XD

My argument is that 1 feels like a stronger word andwhen you pull the mallet out with it you feel like its actually doing work


Whereas 2 feels like a flimsy number and looks a bit like spanner

Whenever I have a spanner at 1 it feels like Im holding out a gigantic pinkie finger which, despite being gigantic, is still a weak finger.

I generally don't intervene in the forum, but I simply cannot let such a blatant lie pass.
Mallet/Spanner is the only logical choice, and here is why:

- Authoritative argument: Muse, in their infinite wisdom, identified their original mistake. They quickly proceeded to present the mighty Mallet/Spanner as the best and most efficient tool order to all future players and AI alike.

- Historical accuracy: in a game about giant battles between airships with piercing-weapon-proof balloons, realism is obviously a serious matter! And it is common knowledge that Mallet should always be placed to the left of the Spanner on any self-respecting tool rack, silhouetted or not. Borderline common sense.

- Gameplay argument: when you want to hit big, you call in the Mallet. There is no finesse to it, you smash any up-left key with all your might! Ain't nobody got time for this, you don't want to end up as raspberry! The (1) key is the perfect panic button, suiting the Mallet's role neatly.
It's the same reason as why you place your fire-fighting tool in slot (3): you absolutely need to quickly grab something that does not repair! So you go as far as possible from any repairing tool! Hitting the upright of those three keys.
Spanner on the other hand is a more refined tool, relying on calculated hits at key locations, on small changes with comparatively big effect. Here is why having Spanner on (2) suits this more; you need to be careful about which one of the three keys you hit. You need precision. The (2) key, being stuck between (1) and (3) is obviously perfect for that. Precise key press, for precise repair duty.

- Rhyme-as-reason effect: Mallet/Spanner makes you stronger!

- Subliminal stimuli: Today I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and later proceeded to use Spanner/Mallet. FML.


If after all this you are still not convinced of the rightness of Mallet/Spanner, I cannot help you.

Speaking as a community ambassador and for the community, I can say the the only true way to live is spanner/mallet, and Muse actively frowns upon all mallet/spanner users. This is $100% true
