should we divide the tropes by seasons or chapters and general tropes now?

Is there a trope for this item?

Due to this being a game with serious Archive Panic, who might be up for creating a Recap page for this? After all, the game takes place all over New York, with villains rising, falling, entering, leaving, trading sides, joining up, revealing as the man behind the man and so forth. It might help us for our department to get an actual recap going.

Well, if someone wants to start one, the Wikia wiki has a near-complete archive of all dialogues on it.

http://forum.playdom.com/showthread.php?280881 There's a decent bit of interesting info in these developer Q&A thingys. (Like an explanation of how the Meat Scroll trend got started.) Think some of it might be incorporatable into the pages here?

May I suggest clean-up also of entries from the main page? I made some reductions in the YMMV page because it looked very cluttered with all the "too much information" details that made it look more like from GameFAQs. Besides, with all the new incoming gear, chances are those lists will be longer and longer and old "overpowered ones" will be obsolete anyway.

We probably should finish deleting the character-specific entries that already got ported to the sheet, too.

With the recent release of chapter 12, do you guys think we should now include Peninsula of Power Leveling, particularly referring to chapter 12 mission 2? A lot of players seem to like that place due to both it's large experience bonus as well having a boss roulette AND an epic boss roulette for the low cost of 20 energy per run and Kitty Pryde.

At 3 boss roulettes and 3 epic boss roulettes per full bar of energy, this leads to a very large amount of chances to drop command points in addition to efficiently leveling up newly purchased heroes. For comparison, the next most efficient farming spot allows for 1 boss roulette and 1 epic boss roulette per 1 full bar of energy + 10 energy and Storm.

Or does something like that fall under some other trope?

I'm trying to think of the right trope for Phoenix. She seems pretty calm and composed most of the time, and not at all dangerous. But then you see her as one of the Phoenix Five, or offhandedly dropping a comment on Tony that the Phoenix is going to come incinerate Earth, and you realize how much power she has, and she's suddenly terrifying. What's the best trope for someone who is far more powerful than she (usually) lets on?

There's this list of tropes to sift through: Hidden Badass

But Beware the Nice Ones is probably the obvious one to me, at least.

Do you think we need a Characters page? I'm tempted to start one, but there are so many characters already and more on the way
ArkadyDarell

Wouldn't it just mostly duplicate the character sheets for all the characters elsewhere on the wiki, admittedly?
fortesama

How about just using the character sheets for character-specific gameplay-related tropes. As for their bios, a link to the main character sheet for each entry will do to avoid duplicates.
ArkadyDarell
11:28:50 PM Mar 18th 2013
Might work. There are some personality differences for some characters too, now that I look at it more.

Okay. A skeleton characters page is up now
ArkadyDarell
07:29:11 AM Apr 2nd 2013
...I'm not sure what the point was if you weren't even going to minimally start the page. I certainly don't really have any idea where you were going with the idea.
Chariset
09:44:25 AM Apr 2nd 2013
Ha! It was about midnight when I put it up. Give me time to move the character-specific tropes from the main page over there.
ArkadyDarell
10:12:00 AM Apr 2nd 2013
OK, fair enough, but just remember there is no deadline on making a page. :) Sometimes it's easier to just wait until you have everything together.

It's filling up nicely now. I love Wiki Magic.

Should we add images? I think I can get the sprite pics from the wiki down to around 10K or less apiece.

Also, the highups have gotten annoying about commenting out "Zero Context Examples", so we might have to work on fleshing out everything. (Sigh.)
Chariset
10:57:07 AM Apr 6th 2013
I'm working on filling out the examples. Adding images might not be worth the hassle, especially since you'd have to keep it updated every time they release new content.

Do you think we need a section on significant villains/villainous teams?

Well, I tried adding images to the Bruisers section (since they have the least characters) to see how it looks for now. I don't mind the hassle; I'm more concerned about the formatting. (It's annoying there seems to be no way to clear the float if the image is to the right of a trope list that isn't long enough...)

I also wonder if we should just port the info in the "Alliance" section over to the character sheet and link to the sheet as that section.

And I was pondering that myself, making a list for the mini bosses and major bosses.

I like the images. Let me see if the wrap effect looks better with fuller bios and a larger font size. What are you going to do with Fury, Hill, and Stark?

Edit: Okay, all of the characters with in-game bios have been edited.
ArkadyDarell
05:40:43 AM Apr 7th 2013
I had been thinking we should use the full bios from the game myself, so I like it. Let me see about filling in some of the other sections with images.

And, I was planning on just using their dialogue picture sprites. They're actually almost already narrow enough to fit the wiki guidelines.
ArkadyDarell
08:29:25 PM Apr 11th 2013
At this point I think there's a few characters who have more tropes here than they do on their own comic pages...
ArkadyDarell
10:00:00 AM Apr 15th 2013
I feel like maybe we should break up the Villains section by faction or something.

At the end of Spec Ops 6, mision 3, Stark said something like "Double the summer's Brothers. Double the fun." The "Double the fun" part, could it be a Shout Out to MLP "The fun has been doubled"?

Ok,on a sidenote, What if we divide the main page by chapters and general tropes of the game?
ArkadyDarell
09:58:12 AM Feb 12th 2013
I don't think we have enough chapter/mission-specific tropes yet to worry about it... maybe see what happens when Season 2 comes out.

What if you don't have all of the heroes needed for all of the deploys in a mission? Can you still unlock the epic boss? Do you need to unlock all of the heroes for every deploy in a level to get to the epic boss that you need to defeat for the mission on special operations? I only have an hour left to get Valkyrie and I'm on the very last mission before I'll unlock her and need to fight the epic boss to complete it. I don't have Shadowcat or Wolverine so I can't do all of the level's deploys.

You need to either fight the boss or pay the 25 gold to skip the task. There's no other way around it.

I'm trying to come up with a trope to sum up the Spec Ops 3 plot. Does Divided We Fall qualify?

Also possibly Evil Is Not a Toy?

Seems to be what the Avengers think of the situation, at least. I'll add it to the entry.

We probably should start a project to Entry Pimp this, since the main page has lots of examples plus any character pages which collect work titles, yet there's only 12 wicks to the page.
RosesSpindle
12:43:57 PM Oct 14th 2012
Sounds like a good idea. I actually posted a wick leading here from Level Up Fill Up last night, but I agree that this page could definitely use some more pimping. I'll see what I can do for it later today.

OK, as the first step I went through and wicked the game on all of the character pages with some sort of work list to add to. Including Deadpool's, which was... interesting. That gets us up to 26 wicks.
