Why propose this?

These guys are already putting more thought into this than Burk ever did.

22390: Darius Drake - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 2:30 AM

He's going to screw himself over by overcompensating. Great idea, dude!

22391: Lord Incaros - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 2:41 AM

To be fair, Burk probably COULD figure out his weakness. Depending on what it is.

22392: Drakian - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 2:42 AM

they are overthinking this and that has revealed the fact Goldman's power has weaknesses. too bad they forgot that there's a chance Burk ISN'T a higher-up agent

22393: giovanni - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 2:44 AM

their problem is they assume that Burk has basic knowledge of goldman's power
they think high
burk thinks too low for them to consider

Brown hair is delivering some very good points though. If he is hired as advisor then he is absolutely doing his job. Thumbs up Brown Hair.

He cant know Burk did in fact not think that far.

I dunno if I get the constraints on what he can choose as a challenge.

Like, could he select the challenge to be who-can-be-the-most-Goldman? Or a trivia contest about some aspect of Goldman's personal life? Or a popularity contest judged by Goldman's associates? Or a who-can-do-the-best-Goldman-impression contest?

Or if it's implied that the challenge has to be "fair", then what constitutes "fair"?

22397: random - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 5:25 AM

Burk gave them food for thought, and will watch the ensuing indigestion ...

22398: Bisected - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 5:34 AM

His weakness to chicken nuggets?

22399: Z2 - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 6:24 AM

A foolproof plan is one that is usually designed to resist brilliance, not fools.

22400: MatthewTheLucky - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 8:16 AM

Betting now that his power is probability manipulation, but his weakness is that he can't change something with zero-chance of happening. Like beating Burk in a fight.

22401: Tom - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 9:28 AM

We've seen time and time again how Burk is a simple but incredibly sharp individual.

Now, what IS Goldman's weakness?

22402: Straightbackward - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 9:33 AM

"These guys putting more thought than Burk ever did."

You mean Goldman's team or we, the comments section? Both?

Ah, Wurm's weak spot is rethorical questions, no doubt.

I like how the fight in the background is still going on. Nice details.

I think the whole premise is wrong; if Goldman's publicly defeated by a no-name, that's a huge hit to his reputation and the Hero Program, right? I mean the heroes are public personas, so even if Burk came from the top he would be publicly beating a White Star, showing they are beatable, or worse. The risk Goldman can take would be just too much, whatever his power actually is.

22404: Straightbackward - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 9:51 AM

Whoops, I've just reread the few previous pages/comments where Burk suggests the callenge not to be a fight.

Will Goldman ask for a fight just because of that? I kind of see that's were this is going. Damn, I'm slow, others certainly seem to have caught to this way quicker.

22405: Ibri - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 11:04 AM

@Storm with informal bets not bound by some magic or unbending laws you still have to pass the "no that is bullshit" test when you propose something unreasonable.

22406: The_Squished_Elf - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 11:26 AM

that guy in the background has a magnificent schnozz

22407: Zed - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 11:32 AM

So basically, because they think knows the weakness to his gambling powers, they'll instead challenge him to combat.

In which case we all know the result.

22408: A Loquacious Theorizer - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 3:26 PM

is not the hero that the Shader was fighting really close to the conversation about goldman’s weakness that they don’t want burk to hear?

did you just not remove them from the scene?

22409: Woodledude - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 5:11 PM

@Storm The "challenge constraints" probably have to do with the fact that Burk is challenging Goldman in *public*. If Goldman accepted said challenge and then challenged Burk to something ridiculously unfair, that might in itself be a mark against his reputation - Especially since Mini-cha is the referee. Even if Burk abided by something totally ridiculous like that, it wouldn't *look good*. Appearance is a big deal here.

22410: yes - Thursday, June 25 2020 - 7:32 PM

I'm pretty sure that Burk's plan was to make them think that he could beat them in gambling so that he could trick them into combat.
