[SPOILERS]Ben's character and deeds

posted by SouthWardRB on - last edited - Viewed by 2.0K users

Either you saved Carley or Doug. These great characters shall be avenged. Yeah, Lilly killed them, BUT Ben was giving the extra stuff to the bandits, wich caused the whole thing.

These were great characters, ones who shouldn't be forgotten. Ben, a stupid little teenager who is more scared of everything then a 12 year old.

Please, by joining this thread, you 100% guarantee that you WILL kill Ben, at the first time you get.

  • rofl... I'm sorry....

    Sure ben, you got three people killed, but that's alright, better luck next time... lol :D

  • I hope Ben does learn, but any learning he does will be away from my group if I have anything to say about it.

  • I'm sure Telltale will have him redeem himself somehow. He DID promise he'd step up once we reached Savvanah.

  • @DreadMagus said: ...and possibly letting the bandits in.



    I'm pretty sure they let themselves in. Don't you hate it when people don't knock first?

  • Actually, Ben did let them in. The bandits attacked the Motel before and were repulsed without casualties. While getting the bag from the grate, you can have Lee look at the wall and he'll notice the bullets and arrows left on the wall from previous attacks, which, IMO, proves that the bandits didn't have the numbers or firepower to just march on in.

    i think their attack proved they did, we must have killed 10-15 of them and i don't think that was all of them

  • If they could then their previous attack would've succeeded. From what I remember there were 4 bandits holding your group hostage, and then 6 in the second wave, with more firing at you from further away out of which Lilly killed 1, Carley 2, Lee 5, and a walker got 1 before your group leaves, and this was despite the bandit attack being a complete surprise, thanks to Ben. As for armaments, the bandits had handguns, crossbows, and I think I saw one with a shotgun, while Lee's group had handguns and scoped rifles, so no real advantage or disadvantage in the actual fight, but your group's weapons should perform better if the group is prepared and fighting from a fortified position which would be the case if not for Ben.

    IMO, though, the best proof for believing that the bandits didn't have the numbers or firepower to take the motel is that they did try before and failed. I'm not saying that staying there was worth the risk from bandits or lack of supplies, but the group would've been far better off if Ben acted like a real member of the group and talked to everyone else or at least Lee after his first contact with the bandits than trying to keep a deal going behind everyone's back. Hell, the group would've been way better off if Ben was never found, which is why I wouldn't keep him around.

  • There's 4 bandits holding everyone hostage at first. Carley killed 2, Lilly 1, and Lee shot the final one in the rear as he hopped the fence. At least six more bandits came out of the woods to actually storm to motel while several others provided covering fire from the woods. Plus, the ones that stormed the motel (who we killed) all had scoped rifles. Bandits had the numbers, and the firepower. The only thing keeping them out was the wall.

  • I looked again, the second wave had 5 bandits with rifles without scopes that Lee kills and 1 bandit with a handgun that was killed by a walker. I don't think Lee's group can win without the wall either, which they would've had if not for Ben.

  • Oh yeah, in a stand up fight Lee's group would have been wiped out. Good thing Kenny fixed up that RV.
