Talk:Rumble

From YPPedia

Contents

Article name?

Is the official name Rumble or Rumbling? Whichever it is, I think we could use a redirect from the other. --Guppymomma 07:46, 4 March 2006 (PST)

It's an odd one - Rumble is the name of the game and Rumbling is the action of playing it. I think that we should name the page Rumble and redirect Rumbling to this one. --Icex05 08:02, 4 March 2006 (PST)

What about Official:Rumbling? --Nickster (t/c) 09:17, 4 March 2006 (PST)

It's still referring to 'How to rumble' - think of it as Official: All about Rumbling (with other players. Q: 'Rumbling is a frantic fight between two or more pirates.' - explaining what the action of rumbling is. I say stick with a page called Rumble, as that is the name of the game. --Icex05 09:48, 4 March 2006 (PST)

The pages for the videos (Which are awesome by the way, thanks Thes!) are slightly broken. The links at the bottom of the page all link to the "Small_combo-crunch" video. All three of the videos can be accessed by typing the extension .avi in the address but as of right now, the small combo is the only video that can be loaded in an external window just by clicking the link. Just a minor problem --Darkaardvark 17:08, 19 March 2006 (PST)

If ya plonk mms:// instead of http:// on the video hyperlink, it should load the video in external player. Might be better than having to download the video to watch. --Sagacious 17:12, 19 March 2006 (PST)

Per the Swordfighting page, I've removed Bludgeon details and created a bludgeon-type template which is linked in the bottom section. I was unable to acquire the "rumble-icon" image for the template, so if anyone can grab that and put it in the template:bludgeon-type header I'd appreciate it. --Rixation 06:33, 28 March 2006 (PST)

I went ahead and put the image in the template for you. I took a screenshot of it from the game and blanked out the background, so the pixels may be a bit off.--Zyborg22 16:47, 28 March 2006 (PST)

Another similar game

Frozen Bubble[1] is another Rumble-like game for those free software nuts running Linux (Win and Mac ports availible too).

Combo Names

The combo names look incredibly bad as they are. It was bad enough as a list in the body. Can this be fixed? I looked for better formatting options, but didn't really see any. --Thespian 08:18, 31 March 2006 (PST)

Any ideas? List them horizontally, vertically, how? Continue the current list down into the attack section? With 35 combo names, the list will take up a large chunk of space no matter how it's presented.--Fiddler 08:56, 31 March 2006 (PST)
Okay, I don't like this way any better, but there it is for commenting.--Fiddler 08:59, 31 March 2006 (PST)
I think it's much better that way, actually. At least there isn't a whole bunch of wasted space with it embedded on the side like that. --Rixation 09:39, 31 March 2006 (PST)
I like it a lot more this way. there's no ideal, but this is much better--Thespian 11:48, 4 April 2006 (PDT)

Strategy guide / External links

Would this be a valid reference? I'm not trying to compare myself to TedV or RD and their swordfighting guides, but it's a start, right? --Rixation 09:43, 31 March 2006 (PST)

Yes. --Guppymomma 15:30, 4 April 2006 (PDT)

I was wondering if this video would add something to the page? bit of your basic newbie rumble guide for new players and maybe some tips for more experienced ones. [2] --Finnguala 12:51, 13 october 2010

Parlour Game

I don't think Rumble is classified as a parlour game, is it? It's listed in a different place in the ingame info pages from the other parlour games. --Featherfin 10:57, 31 March 2006 (PST)

Fixed. Just copied the first paragraph from the swordfight details for clarification. --Rixation 11:24, 31 March 2006 (PST)

rumble is under the parler games table in the inn so i would think its a parlergame

Ready?

I'm looking to change the featured article on the YPPedia main page (where the Arrrt stuff is now). How are the rumble folks feeling about this page? Can it be ready enough in a day or two to be featured? --Guppymomma 08:18, 5 April 2006 (PDT)

Added some more linkies, fixed the carousing puzzle template and added that, removed the stub. I'm pretty sure it's done...what isn't covered here, is covered on the Official Docs or in the strategy guide thread. --Rixation 20:31, 5 April 2006 (PDT)
I think it's ready. I'm sure there will be more. I just updated the screenshot to use the new background, which is the only think I've seen to be changed this week. --Thespian 19:58, 5 April 2006 (PDT)
Woo. Okay, the next question is, could I get some help with an introductory paragraph that makes it sound exciting & fun? Just plop it here and everyone edit away. Here's the "starter" first two paragraphs from the article, I'm looking for it to be about as long as the current featured article at Template:Featured_article. Thanks for the help guys! --Guppymomma 20:15, 5 April 2006 (PDT)
I'm thinking since bludgeons are a huge part of Rumble, they should be included, so I copied over some of Roparzh's official doc. Also added some minor nitpicky stuff to the first paragraph that doesn't quite fit on the Rumble page, but enhances it a bit for use on the front page. --Rixation 06:19, 6 April 2006 (PDT)


Rumble

Screenshot Rumble.png
Rumble is the newest multiplayer puzzle added to Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates. It is available from the tournament board or as a parlor game. Players can challenge NPPs or other players to a rumble. In addition, the final phase of a sea battle against Barbarians is a rumble.

Meant as a concept of martial arts, fisticuffs and/or melee fighting, Rumble is played most similar to Snood, Bust-A-Move/Puzzle Bobble, or PopCap's Dynomite. The player must fire colored balls in clusters of at least 3 balls of the same color to send attacks to the opponent.

Everyone can fight with their bare fists, however some may prefer to use the different bludgeons available. New bludgeons can be ordered from a shipyard or bought from other pirates. Different bludgeons change the drop pattern of your attacks.

Experience Tiers?

A brand new alt got Neophyte on it's first rumble. I believe the current table is innacurate. —Sivius(T/C) 15:45, 18 April 2006 (PDT)

I would be interested to know how the figures were gathered. I just arranged them into a table - aside from that they're nothing to do with me. --Sagacious 16:21, 18 April 2006 (PDT)

I'm going to have to ask the developers if they want this information to be available. I was under the impression that they were witholding it on purpose specifically so that people wouldn't grind. --Eurydice 20:11, 19 April 2006 (PDT)

Oh, I'm sure it'll be a grind regardless of whether the numbers are here or not ;). I'd be very surprised if these numbers were even close to accurate, to be honest. --Thunderbird 20:28, 19 April 2006 (PDT)
If the numbers are such that it's not based simply on raw number of matches you've done, then it'd probably be fair to just tell us, "it's not based simply on the raw number of matches you've done." :P Either way, I'm sure the tech-heads here will make their most valient attempts at conjuring up a new data chart. :) --Emufarmers 20:35, 19 April 2006 (PDT)

Sorry, guys, the devs have asked me to remove the experience tiers. --Eurydice 22:27, 19 April 2006 (PDT)

No worries. --Barrister 22:29, 19 April 2006 (PDT)
Hurrah. :) Featherfin 09:01, 20 April 2006 (PDT)

Facial Expression?

Is there any significance when a pirate's character icon changes facial expression in mid battle? I noticed when fighting once that my character had suddenly taken on an angry - open mouthed look. I cannot recall what I did or what happened to bring about this. Can other pirates on my team, opposing teams see this? --Plng 03:14, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

I think it has something to do with in a melee when you are attacking someone and that pirate is attacking you back. I don't know if that is right however. --Wendy20 22:58, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
