When you have two opponents that are peers, on any given day, either one should be able to walk away with a victory.

    It's pretty common to hear people complaining about jobbing when we see a fight that theoretically should be a stomp end up as a competitive affair. But is this always a bad thing? Should fights be written in a logically rigorous fashion or is it better that writers flex the rules a bit, or even a lot, so as to make for a good fight? 


Certainly there are many other factors that affect the outcome of a fight other than a character's stats.

    For myself I think I was a bit more of a "purist" back in the day but nowadays I think I see the merits of being a bit more laid back about such things.


I am more of a percentage guy.
