Sorry but I think we are not understanding each other.
What speech are you talking about, I swear I have no idea. Sorry.Ok, so you're arguing that the whole being used as a tool speech was an act and the real reason was because the other regulars were being treated unfairly? If so then firstly, what was the point in the speech in the first place? It's not like he needs to keep up any appearances and it's not like anyone in the crowd heard what he was saying, a simple "fight each other or I'll kill you all" would have sufficed and made things "fair" again.
Yes, that was basically what he was doing. So what? Even more, he could just have gone and have put his rod in the plug space, and let the other to fight for the two spaces reaining. But he didn't? Why? Your view is that there is not a good reason for it, given Baam personality and story. My view is that he disapprove what he saw. I think that's the same view Wangnan had of the fight. I'd have to point that that view is the one credited by the chapter. Well it simply happened.Secondly, what did he actually achieve? The other regulars were already beaten up by the time he did anything and now that there are two plug spaces left, they'll just battle and potentially kill each other for those spaces, so in effect all he was doing was punishing the fake FUG regulars.
Painful experiences change people. I'd thought we can't compare the Baam from S1 to Baam from S2. My guess would be that betrayal and pain have make a mark on him.Thirdly, when Koon brought that extra team out in the crown game and used that to his advantage, why didn't Baam speak out then? Teaming up is a tactic which didn't break any of the rules, the "fair" regulars probably would have done the same thing if they had thought of it.
Now all your argument goes: since he had not act like that, it's not believable he now acts like that. Well, people is not like that, you know. If you add the fight of this chapter to the end of those commented situations and add at the beginning the fact that in the firsts scenes of S2, he seemed to don't care at all about nobody, then you can see a traces of a progression.As for those situations which you say are comparable:
Horyang was a friend. As I said, he doesn't fight anyone unless if it somehow relates to his friends, whether that is protecting them or reacting with rage when they're hurt. Even then, even when he thought that Ran and Novik killed Horyang, he didn't kill them because he is pretty much incapable of killing someone, which brings me onto my next point...
Killing Yeon was never an option. It doesn't fit with his moral code. Now, he was under attack by Yeon so he had to do something, so extracting that thing was pretty much expected. That was still nothing like this situation, he wasn't reacting to injustice, he was simply reacting to being attacked without killing anyone.
As for the police bot, it's not comparable because it's simply a machine. It didn't involve having to hurt another human being which we have constantly been told is something which he avoids unless he has no choice. Though out of all your examples, this is probably the closest.
