Tales of Uberbob strategy thread ( No Radiums >O )

http://www.jazz2online.com/jcf/showthread.php?t=13234

This thread is to discuss strategies for battles in the Uberbob thread. Rad made test battles, but of course, those were against single individuals. We can't win if everyone pursues a different goal and not everyone has the same knowledge of things.

Wondering why I so love ninja speed? Well, it's won me several practice matches. But... how? I'm not telling you outright, but here's a hint- it can be used at ANY point in your turn. You just need to know the right moment to use it- when the opponent has left himself open you can do a good twenty damage with shuri using it!

I have a great idea, lets try to get the HP of all the enemies down to zero, while keeping all of our characters' HP above zero!

Okay, for my beginning strategy:

Shuriken: E, SE, S, attack Spoy
Leetzan: Summon enchantresphere 1 SW of Spoy, SW
Sphere: Attack Spoy

This way, we both attack Spoy on the first turn, and block all enemies from getting to Leetzan. If we defend Leetzan like this, she will be able to cast her spells without danger. From here, we hold out 7 turns for Fooruman.

Also, the enchantresphere could be swapped for a water elemental.

..no, AE. The enemy has healing skills.

..personally, I don't feel like working on this thread anymore for today. And I still have no idea how Shuriken can do that much damage in one turn..
*shrugs*

Anyway, here's my initial tactic for the new fight:

First, make both characters defend. Move Leetzy west, too, to get her away from Spotty. Then summon the Enchantresphere right next to Spotty, in a way that won't let him pass to L33tzy.
If my calculations are correct, Unfooruman will use Unsummon on it and Spotty will use a special attack I think he has, both of which should fail on it.
So in the next turn, Mythslayer could be summoned and Unfooruman manipulated to attack Spotty.. Mythslayer casts Slay and attacks normally... And Shuriken attacks, too..
...hmm..
Actually, Mythslayer might as well be replaced by Water Elemental if the Enchantresphere is there.. but if we knew how Shuriken can deal that much damage, it all wouldn't be a problem... hmmmm.

That's debatable. On one hand, it would be smart, to allow Spoy access to Leetzan. On the other hand, Unfoo looks like he saves his unsummon for the mythslayer...

Do you think that if we do something outside, before the battle, something might happen to make the battle easier? I am messing around with the man now.

Most of my ideas were crafted before I knew that Fooruman would appear, so Fooruman can change the overall strategy slightly, but the feeling is still there.

No, spotty has two charges each of his healing gun and his power gun, unless Radium changed that from the trial battles (which seems unlikely).

Well, my post should be safe as it's almost entirely based on information gleaned from the battles so far. Strato's just clarified the casting limits for Spotty and Unfooruman.

at the very begining, hypnotise Spotty to shoot a friendly with his Power Gun.
and if we lose again, kill the CD guy in the "save" hallway before he has a chance to become the Spotty.

when did we try to KILL the CD guy before the battle?
from what i remember, we stole his CD player, told him there was no soap in the bathrooms, and then stole his book so he got angry and went into the next room.

What I was trying to do was just to see if there is anything that could be done out there that might affect the battle in any way, not specifically killing the man.
Maybe you can threaten Spoy with tossing the book/CD Player into the lava?

Because I wanted them to figure out the tricks themselves rather then relying on insiderish information.

Should we try whoever-it-was' idea to cast Haste over Spotty's Power Gun? Assuming Shuriken even can cast Haste on others besides herself.

Spoy is short for Spotty. Spotty is both, in different contexts, a JJ2 player and Unfooruman's minion. If my brain was working properly now I could tell you more, so for now go watch the foo movies or something for more details. (http://www.fooproducts.com/FooMovies.shtml)

Before that I had suggested to get rid of his disguise and attack him.

Unfoo just showed us a new move: he has some sort of slow power. -1 movement to target.

Seeing as Fooruman will megawarp by this turn, we should try moving Unfoo away from Fooruman's warping position (1N, 4E).
