Cross Statistic Analysis - Doug/Ben decision.

posted by NeonBlade on - last edited - Viewed by 1.7K users

So far we know that 76% of the Misandrists, Traditionalists, Feminists, and Sex Crazed Primates chose Carley in Episode 1, and only 23% chose to save Doug.

What I would love to see is the breakdown of those that saved Doug, when he died in his scenario with Ben.

How many of the those that saved Doug, chose to pull Ben up in the Bell Tower. I think that would be an interesting dynamic to analyse the psychology behind that decision.

I saved Doug and pulled Ben up....how many others did the same?

  • I try to save anyone that needs help.
    1. Sean was pinned under the tractor with no way to get it off, the walkers on Duck were obstructed by the fence, if Duck even fell off the tractor, he would have escaped them himself.
    2. Doug was pinned against the wall, with no way to fight back, Carley had 1 walker on her foot, that could have been handled with a swift kick, she chose to stand there and die
    3. Larry was dying and needed help, I revived him
    4. Omid was hurt, Christa was fine, I helped Omid
    5. Ben was going to die without being pulled up, I helped him up.

  • @Gennadios said: Official stats are:

    74.6 Carley 23.6 Doug

    58.3 Kept Lilly 41.7 Left Lilly
    66.6 Saved Ben 33.4 Dropped Ben

    The stats themselves don't say much because you can't really break down the choices of the individual camps, however, despite the fact that Carley had the majority of support, the percentage of people that Kept Lilly around is a decent majority. Implying that they were all frothing at the mouth with blind rage is kind of misleading.

    Also, fewer people dropped Ben than chose to leave Lilly behind, so it's fair to assume that people Blame Lilly for the death of Carley more than they blame Ben. So much for Misandry.

    This is, actually a great post.

  • I saved Doug because I liked his character more than Carley. I saved Ben because as much as we all like to think we won't be the dumb ass of the group in a bad situation, someone is bound to be, and I feel like we need to cut them a little slack.

  • I saved Doug.
    Honestly, my first reaction was to save Doug because I didn't realize Carley was out of ammo and would just shoot herself free. Then I was like :eek: rewind.
    But then, retroactively, still saved him. Thought process: Doug already showed ingenuity in finding ways to survive with what's on hand (i.e. remote) while Carley couldn't even figure out how to put batteries in a radio properly. Carley was a good shot while Doug was pretty useless on the combat end. However, ammo runs out; ingenuity is always needed.

    I saved Ben.
    He effed up countless times but his intentions were, at least, valid.

    The character I have wanted to blame/revenge kill is Kenny--not going to lie. His stubbornness has gotten more people killed pointlessly than anyone else--the Ben choice included. Lilly would have fallen here too, if she wasn't already gone by this point.

  • Saved Doug. He was a bro. Met Ben. Fed him. Was nice to him. All the time. He got three killed, and put everyone in danger. He abandoned Clem. And I was always nice to him. So yes, I pulled him up. That answer your question?

  • Here is my logic: If Doug were skillful at a gun I would have let Carley Die.

  • I saved Carley, because she had a gun. Furthermore Doug is fat.

    I also saved Ben.

    Ok NeonBlade . It seems you have a huge grudge against people who saved Carley and Carley fans . I understand that you like Doug and all but you take this thing WAY TOO SERIOUSLY .
    We are human , we are people just like you . Just because you like a character , you can't judge a person because of his decisions .
    You don't know these people so you don't have a right to flat out insult people who saved Carley . Not everybody is going to make the same decision as you did because we have opinions .
    I saved Carley because she was trustworthy , she always saves Lee and she trusts him despite him being a criminal . By calling the people who saved Carley like me sex crazed primates it just proves that you don't respect people who do different choices than you . If you would ever meet the people who saved Carley in real life , i bet you wouldn't have the courage to call them those names . Your decisions and opinions are not higher than mine so don't insult people ok . You never see me or anyone on this forum insult people who do different choices than me .
    So please NeonBlade , leave the people who saved Carley and Carley fans alone .

  • Carley saves you twice in episode 1 plus you have more dialogue and scenes with her,all doug did was the remote. The way i saw it was I owed Carley my life twice over plus she seemed alot more useful to save her. Doug didn't get near as much dialogue or screentime as carley and didn't seem as useful a character thats why people didnt pick him.

  • Doug saved Carley and honestly the scene where you save them shows that Carley is absolutely useless without her gun, she can't even stop a walker pulling at her leg without wasting a bullet.

    My way of thinking was that anyone can be taught to use a gun while having knowledge of tech is only known by a few. So i saved Doug (still a tough decision though). Plus I saved Ben (always liked him for some reason)

    Oh and I agree with others stop hating on decisions, disagreement is fine but there are many logical arguments for saving Carley or Doug; no reason to dismiss one of the other
