Do we want to add the differences between rumble teaming and sf teaming to this page? (pictures, and the differences that happen as a result of defending, along with the fact you don't see your opponents targetting, I'm thinking) --Thespian 13:27, 6 April 2006 (PDT)

Good idea. --Barrister 13:58, 6 April 2006 (PDT)
If you think they're different enough, maybe there should be a seperate page, Teaming (Rumbling) or somesuch, with a redirect? (Or maybe even a disambiguation page?) Or maybe that's not necessary. How much is presently known about the effects of taeming and defending in rumbling? --Emufarmers 14:08, 6 April 2006 (PDT)
I'd strongly prefer to avoid parentheticals. rumble teaming and swordfight teaming seem like good names. --Barrister 14:19, 6 April 2006 (PDT)
I'd say we don't know enough about teaming in rumbling, because Roparzh is delighting in letting us figure it out on our own :-) Providing a page with the information would encourage people to collect what we do know in one place. But I'm too tired tonight. Tomorrow I'll work something up if no one else has. --Thespian 02:20, 10 April 2006 (PDT)
So, two months later, anyone want to take a stab at starting the Rumble teaming page and disambig this article? --Rixation(t/c) 12:56, 13 June 2006 (PDT)

Does anyone know how the players are ordered in the swordfight, from top to bottom? It's not alphabetical. Visley 15:11, 28 October 2006 (PDT)


Six years later, it looks like this page fork never happened. As Rumble has now been around long enough for us all to learn how it works, and since the teaming process is almost identical (save for generally suggested team sizes and the ability to defend) I'm going to argue against a separate page.

And by "argue against" I mean "just wholesale ignore this whole talk page and add Rumble info to this existing article since I seem to be sprucing it up anyway." The main rumble entry already includes a brief subsection on teaming, including the information as a footnote here as well should only be a minor issue. If anyone really feels that we need two pages about teaming – one for swordfighting and one for rumble – that can still be done at some later date.

At any rate, this page hadn't been touched (save for changing the word "yellow" to "orange" re: large teaming dots) since 2006, and was still very sword-heavy, and generally full of the anti-Rumble prejudice that had taken over the oceans, at the time. It also used the word "rectangle" so many times that rectangle stopped looking like a word, to me. I'm not sure "puzzle box" is any better, but there you go. –Ladodal 06:13, 6 August 2012 (PDT)

Sounds good to me Lado. :) The only real functional difference is the ability to defend in rumble, which I don't think is enough to merit a separate page. Keeping it all in one place will allow for users to get the info in a much more efficient manner, I think. --Fannon 14:30, 6 August 2012 (PDT)


Hasn't the rumble puzzle been changed so that teaming in numbers greater than three is no longer a good idea? If so, this teaming article needs to be updated.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Zeinasway (talkcontribs)

I believe this is so, will do some tests on a bunch of pillages to find out. =] Avastme Talk 10:33, 26 December 2012 (PST)
Both opinions are pretty much conjecture. There is some discussion in this thread. If rumble was changed in this way, there was no notification to us that it was, so even detecting the change would be based on speculation. Chupchup 11:14, 26 December 2012 (PST)
