Feats. With powerscaling you're always saying one is stronger than another, somethimes on a very loose basis which drops the credibility of the scaling and somethimes even invalid scaling is used. With feats you just have solid proof always at hand, making it more credible. Somethimes scaling is at place though, since the feats before someone training are better than after someone's training which would if you only look at feats indicate the person got weaker. In those cases just the idea of training making someone stronger just also has to be taken into account.
Also if you want to see powerscaling gone wrong, look at DBZ and Naruto. Plenty of examples of scaling gone rampant amongst them.
HungryWorld, But we have to remember that there are characters that rely on AoE and those that rely on potency. Chun Hwa for instance, at most destroyed the equivalent of a city, yet can easily beat down guys that are much stronger than guys who are much stronger than guys who vaporize mountain ranges.
тиваненк Although i guess that in the case of Chun Hwa the characters he beat have something to back up that they are at a much higher level for both DC and durability. In that case it's ok to powerscale. It's not like the DBZ scaling getting solar system level durability for Buu when he has no feats anywhere close (nor do the other characters, and honestly Buu got blasted into bits by his own planet buster) and the Nauto scaling from Toneri to EoS crap. You honestly don't want to know how the potency argument is abused somethimes.
Feats give you a discernible range for how to judge the scale of capabilities of characters within a series. Powerscaling only gets by with the logic of "x character being stronger than x character due to beating x character" which can fall under enough scrutiny as that leads folks to stick characters at a tier where their capabilities may be heavily overestimated or underestimated, DBZ being one of the more notorious titles to milk powerscaling since it's notorious for having little feats and lack of consistency with applying its own logic.

Feats of course are what you go for first. Powerscaling comes second and only if of course it's logical for the character getting powerscaled to another with the aforementioned feats makes sense and even than should be used within reason
Feats are definitely the first thing to use, with feats it gives a basis on what certain characters can do opposed to power scaling where you can say so and so can do the same as so and so without any real base to prove so, not all characters can replicate feats that others can which is where power scaling tends to be taken to far.
Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...

Dream: ...to the 2000s series.

Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.

Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.

Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.

Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.

CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
