  1. If you ask me which one is better there is no question its ninjas. I could never take a pirate seriously. They are just big jokes and sloppy drunks. The way I look at it is. The world is ending. I can decide to partner with a ninja or partner with a pirate. I’m going with the ninja every day of the week.

  2. I was a little confused at first cause the image shows Pirates and Zombies but then its Pirates an Ninjas. Anyways it is still a very cool idea. I have to go with Pirates of ninjas. The entire ninja thing is getting played out. Its a joke people go to way to much and memes online are never ending. Minus Pirates of the Caribbean there’s not much talk about pirates and there should be. They look awesome, have eye patches, and the best pets. Ninjas don’t get pets. I love pets so I go with pirates.

      1. See it would be easier for me if it was Zombies. My answer would go to them no doubt. In a battle vs Ninjas and Pirates I really have no idea. I never was into ninjas but love Long John Silvers. So pirates then? That sounds right to me.

  3. You have to go with ninjas. Pirate are passé by now. You can’t do anything new with them and they don’t have much variety. Ninjas can be put into anything.

      1. I never in my life heard of people facing Pirates and Ninjas off against one another. Now I see it though. Really some intriguing match-ups here. Errol Flynn’s Captain Blood is one of my all time favorites films so I would be w if I did not go Pirates.

        1. Oh there has been much written about this great debate. I have gone back and forth a few times I usually end up with Ninjas though. Honestly its a flip of a coin. Could go either way.

  4. Seriously you all need to do stuff like this more often. One of the better podcasts I have heard in awhile. I agree this vote should be close. Very close. I give the slight of slightest edges to pirates. The key is adventure. Pirates have fun. Ninjas are not allowed to smile.

    1. it’s more creepy when assassins smile that be all serious lol And yes WarZ is back there will be more eps as the year goes on. Plus the next tourney is coming!

  5. There is no question the answer is Ninjas. Ninjas are stealth assassins, martial artists, and don’t forget scientists. A lot of the inventions they created were well ahead of their time and still used today. Pirates didn’t invent anything. They just stole from other people.

  6. The most important category of the ones listed is characters. That tells the story of who group is better. If you group can’t produce an impressive list of characters then how good are they? So then the choice is easy. You have Snake Eyes, TMNT, Deadpool, Sub Zero, among many others against Captain Jack Sparrow and a group of characters no one has cared about for the last thirty years. I go Ninjas all the way.

    1. You honestly sold me with that argument. I too shall put my vote in for Ninjas.

      1. I also will agree with this reasoning. I have to admit I enjoy more ninja characters than pirate characters. I have played ninja games but never a pirate game.

    2. Don’t know if I buy that argument that Ninjas have better characters. Captain Hook, Jack Sparrow, oh and that guy called Han Solo. Doesn’t Han Solo take it alone? I say YES!
