Why is it people draw AJ as the Engineer? Anonymous 409814

It boggles me.

Mainly for the fact AJ isn't no where near as educated to thus craft the Engineer's gadgets, like an automated sentry or a teleporter. Just because they're both "Country Bumpkins" isn't enough to exactly portray to AJ as him, in my opinion.

Twilight would probably be a more fitting candidate, considering she reads all kinds of things, seems smart, and since she doesn't do any real physical labor, it makes sense that she would use her brain to craft machines to do her bidding. Not to mention, she can teleport, and what is one of the Engie's inventions? A teleporter.

Also Rarity would be more the Sniper than anything. Being a Spy, although getting to wear fashionable suits, means getting close to people and deceiving them to thus get as close as she needs to whether it's stabbing them in the back or sapping buildings. Would Rarity really do that to someone? Especially when she could possibly get "Blood on her suit" too? No, she'd probably be far, far away from the heat of the battle picking off people from a safe distance. You also need to realize that being one to make dresses for a living probably means she's a bit creative and has a "eye" for things, which would probably give her some subtle advantage over other ponies trying out for Sniper.

Trixie would probably be a better choice for Spy. Considering the Spy on his own is weak, and Trixie herself isn't inherently strong enough on her own without some help, it'd be better for her to "Trick" people instead since she's more accustomed to using "flash" to attract and distract.

That's just me though.

There isn't really a way to match ponies clean to TF2 classes. Even Rainbow → Scout, which seems like a shoo-in because they're both fast and aggressive, matches the least durable TF2 class with the toughest pony.

…Applebloom should be Engineer.

Because in TF2 it clearly takes a large amount of technical expertise to create sentries and such.

No wait, the Engineer just smacks it with his magic buildy wrench until it materializes into whatever it's supposed to be, lol.

…come to think of it, Rarity is the one who builds things out of nothing. Should she be the engineer?

There's a personality clash, to be sure – she's aggressively cultured whereas the TF2 Engineer is very country. But it does line up decently with her talents.

I like Rarity = Spy better. Her fashion sense of knowing how to stand out comes with the ability to know how to blend in.

Because Applejack has a southern accent and so does Engineer

its not hard buddy lol

Agiri 409962

If anything AJ should be soldier. Not too bright but prideful and tough.

I also don't like Pinkie = Pyro, since pyro never talks and Pinkie never shuts up. Pinkie = Demo makes way more sense.

I think pinkie pie just gets to be every class.. because pinkie pie.

Also Applejack is a builder. She has rebuilt that damn barn so many times. Also, we have no Idea how smart she truly is.

Because the engineer is a hick and so is Applejack.

!JUveNA/l/6 416759

AJ has a really strong work ethic
Engie has like 20 degrees in science

they're both southernesque

they both have orange in their palette

they're both usually the most sane person in the room

They both like to hang out in the background while the others do the action.





I'm sorry I couldn't help myself.
