    Welcome, everyone, to a brand new version of War of the Elements! Following v5's Triple Win, it's time to begin v6 of the Types game!

    For those of you who are new to this game, here are the mechanics:
    Each player is given a role that includes 4 attacks. As an experiment, in this version, there are no special abilities.
    Every Phase, you will send in 3 attacks. These can be all the same move, three different moves or any combination thereof. Once every three Phases, you will also get one extra attack, using 4 during the phase instead of 3. This will occur during phases 3, 6, 9, etc.
    When submitting your attacks, please make sure they’re written like this, though I do not mind if it’s not exactly the same:
    “Use Earthquake on Max1996”
    When the phase is over I will send results of each of your attacks back to you, in the form of “Earthquake on Max1996: Normally/Super/Not Very Effective” (Or “Did Not Affect”) as well as what moves were used on you, but not by whom.
    This Type Chart is used for reference.

    [​IMG]

    Using the results of your moves, you will also send me a list of guesses as to who is what Type.
    Those who guess all initially unknown Types correctly win the game.

    Players:
    1. @MegaPod
    2. @DarthWolf
    3. @Elieson
    4.
    5.

    Informed Observers:

    MoD: @SoaringDylan

    Other rules:
    1: Each Phase will last for 48 hours. Once the phase is over, I will send the results to you as soon as possible.
    2: This game is OC. However, Type claiming is not allowed and you can only tell other players the Types of your moves, rather than the moves themselves. And, please, no OCs with everyone. Understood, Cheff?
    3: If you change your username mid-game, please state your old and new ones in-thread and mention the host.

    Some potential balancing tweaks I'm trying out, after discussing it with Dylan.

    1. Can't tell other players your Type.
    2. Can only tell other players what Types your moves are, not the moves themselves.
    3. No starting OC with literally every other player. looking at you Cheff

    Yes that 3rd part is kind of unclear. Why cant we do that and to what extend is it allowed?

    The extent, admittedly, I'm not sure. But I'd rather not have a situation like back in v4.

    I like how the OC rule doesn't mention my name, @Max1996 :D

    Oh, right...but you never did that in WotE, so I guess Cheff, who did do so, just stuck out more in my memories...

    So what max is saying is that as long as there is someone NOT in the convo it's not everyone so should be fine...

    ...wait why am I even suggesting this, I'm the one dealing with the fallout o_O

    Honestly, I dont see why you apply this rule in the first place. If you dont want OC then limit it to that or give a different kind of restriction to what you can say in OC.

    What would happen when you apply a limit to the amount of oc you can have and player A has reached that limit and then player B contacts A, therefore exceeding the limit for A.

    The restriction is mainly how many OC Conversations A can start.
