Default Official Vanilla vs CBM debate thread

Hey everyone, I am opening this thread because the Noobs and Vets thread keeps getting spammed with CBM vs Vanilla arguments, and personally I think that's a bit silly. Such debates should happen where everyone can see them, and I'm quite sure that not everyone on this forum reads that one, particular sprawling and enormous thread. So you get this one. Now stop cluttering the MP threads with CBM vs Vanilla!

P.S. Try not to flame each other too much about gem gens.

Vanilla is easier for newbies since there's always a "go to" choice that stands out above other choices. ie. Tarts, clams, Gorgons, etc. CBM is more enjoyable for vets since those "go to" options are nerfed to be more in line with other choices. Over all, unless one enjoys stomping players with the same strategy over and over, there's little reason not to upgrade to CBM once one gets the basics of the game down.

Gandalf calls it upon himself by making claims that are totally out of line with reality. Seriously: [paraphrase] '[Vanilla] frost fathers are one of the few chasses that can take a triple 9 bless, and have points to spare.' Just blatantly false by inspection.

Short answer CBM version of the game is miles better than vanilla...

Longer version, newbies should play vanilla until they get bored (probably take a while), then switch to CBM for a whole new game to spice it up.

CBM, among other things, broadens the scope of the MP game...there are tons of things that you would never use in Vanilla-MP but are useful in CBM.

Noobs should never touch vanilla as it's not used at all in MP. So why make bad habits? It's more boring and less cool. And then you have to learn again...
