NiceLee,

 

What a great idea, especially if someone has just joined the game and trying to understand what each part means, as I know when I first joined a lot of things confused me somewhat, but if you can, can you add the studio parts Doubles and Cakes, even now I am not sure exactly what they are about.

 

But once again a awesome write up

Normally, players who have not signed up for a studio fight, do not fight at all when your studio is attacking, and fight at 50% penalty to skills when your studio is defending. Players will fight at full strength, even if not signed up, when doubles are active for a studio fight. One double is used per avatar affected, up to the maximum number of doubles available. Note that if you do not have enough doubles to activate everyone, the lowest levels will use up the doubles first.

 

Doubles can be purchased using studio diamonds, by the boss and by producers. They are available at a discounted price when purchased 100 doubles at a time.

 

Cakes, when active for a studio fight, can be thrown by up to five players in the studio. If there are five cakes in the studio inventory, the last five players to fight will throw cakes. These are special attacks that replace the player's first normal attack.  Cakes do tremendous damage, and can often swing close studio fights. Cakes are apparently strength-based attacks.

 

Cakes can be purchased using studio diamonds by bosses and producers. They are never discounted.

 

The ability to use cakes and doubles on a regular basis (IE, having access to the necessary studio diamonds) is one characteristic of high level studios. Most fights between top 10 studios will have one or both studios using them. In any close contested fight, both cakes and doubles will be on for both studios.

The biggest problem with posting information like a glossary here, is that the original poster will quickly be unable to edit the glossary.  If you want to add new definitions or change old ones, let me know nicelee.

Thanks, I didn't know about editting posts.
I knew that I would forget some things, especially if I don't have much experience with them.
I did know about using two batteries on the same mission, I will add that. (I was going to write 2 batteries 1 mission, but that has connotations.)
Thanks for the information on cakes and doubles, I may use it for studio info page, with a few sentences for this glossary.

Hi, can you please add the following:

 

add to Battery:
You can use two batteries on the same mission, in order to quickly finish it.

Cake
Also used: Shot cake.
In a studio fight, the top five players that have signed up can each use one cake. They are used for the first attack, and can do a lot of damage. The boss or producers can buy them with studio diamonds.

Double
In a studio fight, players who have not signed up can have a double take their place. The boss or producers can buy them with studio diamonds.
 

 

Thanks

I modified the text for the batteries a bit, to make it explicit that using two batteries reduces overall mission time by 75%... it is not an instant completion.

 

Other than that, done.

Thanks. I did not know that. I have not actually used 2 diamonds on a normal mission, only con missions.

I was told that unfinished convention missions don't count, so I only use 2 batteries on a con mission if the time left was not enough for just one battery. When used on a con mission, it is like a no diamond, not so instant finish.

When I use batteries 2x (back to back, in the same mission), it completes the mission immediately.  Always.

No problem. I had wondered about it before I first tried it. Mathematically speaking 50% of the remaining half would be 25%, so a total of 75 for 2 batteries. But I like how it is all finished instead.
