    a reason to make harry a hero without thinking through the full game strategy to its end

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      I remember thinking this when I read the book back in like, 5th grade. Like, they built up all this hype around this super wild sport with complex rules and people flying on brooms and weird magic shit going on, but then it always felt like Rowling just threw in the snitch shit as an excuse to make the whole scene just follow Harry as he pulls off Mary Sue-esque crazy flying maneuvers he has no reason to be capable of, just so he can always win the match by doing the thing. And none of the rest of the game matters at all.

      Like, it's been years and years, but was there ever an instance where they ran a game and he DIDN'T win by catching the thing?

        There was a game in Goblet of Fire where the team that caught the Snitch lost, but it was kind of out of focus because it was just a game that Harry and The Weasleys were spectating.

          If you think about it it's even worse, there's literally no reason to catch the snitch if your team would lose.

          Matches go on until one of the teams catches the snitch, the snitch gives 150 points, and the current score is publicly displayed (and announced).
          Your seeker should just do some quick math, and if your team is 150 points or more behind, then just don't grab it.
          At that point a team catching the snitch but losing means either the seeker intentionally threw the game, the team wanted to forfeit the match because they didn't think they could make the comeback, or she's a hack who didn't think it through.

          This could've had an interesting dynamic where if one team is behind by more than 150 their seeker stops trying to catch the snitch and instead just runs interference, but it doesn't, and honestly 15 goals worth of points is too much of a lead needed for that to happen often enough to matter.

            You're right.
            Given that the snitch is 150 points, losing 310-0 isn't much more embarrassing than losing 160-0. Getting the snitch and losing anyway is a humiliation.

        Can't you lose even after getting the snitch? Seems like they should've kept the
        >getting the snitch ends the game
        Thing, but then make the snitch less points (maybe 40-50) that way there's more strategy, seekers would have to not grab it sometimes since it would mean their loss, but they still have to block the other seeker from getting it, all while paying attention to the score. Seems like the 150pts thing is what really makes the game dull.

              I think the lack of a time limit gives the game character. It's odd but every sport has oddities that distinguish them. Why does soccer have the ref just guess how much time to add? Why does American football let the clock run, but only sometimes? Why does hockey have rules if they aren't enforced? Why does test cricket do anything?

              One change that I think would be good is not releasing the snitch at the start. Releasing it after a certain number of goals (both teams combined) or after a certain number of minutes would make sense.

        Griffyndor won every match one year but loss the house cup because other matches where maybe another team lost still saw them get more cumulative points in the meanwhile.

        You really don’t actually want to even get the snitch right away, but if you go for it there’s a chance the other team will get it. It’s perfect wizard logic where everyone is a nut doing their own thing but they have to be semi mindful of each others nonsense

    snitch should be worth way less points like 25 max and much easier to catch and the game should be 4 quarters of 15 min or like soccer where its an hour and counts down, pausing for penalties and after every caught snitch field resets to middle and they tip-off again. Also should be above a pool of water so defenders can slam into ppl and knock them off brooms or a net to catch them

    It blows my mind that people are still treating Harry Potter like it was Rowling's manifesto for an ideal society, as opposed to just being a kooky world whose inhabitants are wed to all sorts of weird arbitrary traditions that in many cases are intentionally a bit absurd and nonsensical. The world has all sorts of fricked up inconveniences to deal with: there is a school where the staircases can just ruin your schedule by moving and getting you lost, and there's a tree in the grounds that will beat you up for no fricking reason. I'm pretty sure when the story introduces Quidditch they mention that catching the snitch means that games can sometimes last for weeks, which is obviously stupid. It was never supposed to be some super-balanced new sport that can be translated to the real world.

        In an idealised magical society the school would obviously get rid of it since it has no historical value and poses an obvious danger for students.

    now that you mention, it is also the dullest franchise in the history of movie franchises. Each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.

    Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody, just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.

    >a-at least the books were good though
    No!
    The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs".

    I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King.

    Because it's a story for kids and she wanted a fake sport where the protagonist would always feel like HE was the sole reason why they won the game as slow or as fast as needed. A realistic sport with a bunch of rules and non-stop strategy written in text form wouldn't be very fun for literary purposes.

    How the frick did Harry get on the quidditch team when he literally just had his first lesson on broom riding like a week prior?

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      A teacher saw him catch a ball, allowed him to join the team despite there being a rule that first years couldn't join the team that only existed to make Harry seem even more special.
      She then used school funds to buy him the best broom on the market because she hates Snape and wanted his house to lose at quidditch.

        That makes no sense for him to be a seeker then. He should be one of the other players that actually pass the ball to each other. Rowling is a hack

      I like the other anon's suggestion of capping the score at a certain number of points like 200. Catching the snitch = you either significantly increase your chance of winning if caught early, or can catch up if getting btfo.

      Fixed nothing.
      You just decreased the point spread before one of the seekers just gives up and spends all the time dive-bombing the other one until/if his team is able to close the gap.

      25 points is the optimal amount and it justifies a goal being 10 points instead of 1.

      They should have made it so that you get no points, but it just ends the game, so that you would have to pick a strategic moment to go catch it. And if your team is losing, and the other team's player is chasing it, then you should have a big stick that you would use to chase him and beat him over the head with.

    Well technically in the books the team with the most total points at the end of the season wins the cup. So “winning the match” isn’t the main point. It’s about managing points and when to go for the snitch or not.

      If he was any good he would have caught the snitch before his team fell behind by 16 goals.

    I remember when the Harry Potter books were starting to get popular and parents were worried that their kids were becoming a bunch of fricking weirdos from reading these moronic books, but in the end the parents said "well, at least they're reading something!" and now look how bad the kids turned out.

    i re-watched these for the first time past couple weeks. first two movies are comfy, just gotta get past some bad child acting, but lets be honest these kids didnt exactly become brando by the end of the series. third movie might be the best? i just hate the time travel shit, cuz theres implications for the rest of the series why didnt they use it to save sirius etc. hate the fourth movie, world cup / triwizard tourney / winter ball, its all the worst parts of "exploring teen life" til the end with cedric's death you finally get some payoff. fifth movie arry is a moody c**t and dolores umbridge is a c**t but at least it gets back into the main storylines and has the best fight scenes. and thats where im at on my rewatch. i will probably do half blood prince this weekend
