Confidence (or lack thereof) makes all the difference.

you know what?

the elements are severely unbalanced.

an earth/flying user, if matched against a non-wind, could automatically win by pulling up the ground on the side of the edge and laying it over the arena.

fire users suck in this tournament. you can make a shield with almost everything or just counter it with your own element.

or a flying strong person could just pick up someone and drop them over the side of the stage.

Not gonna lie, I didn't think the Elements through as much as I probably should have. To be honest the Elements have never been super important to me; they mostly serve as a backdrop for the characters and story.

I'll try my best with what I've got, though :D
If scenarios like the ones you described take place, no doubt I'll think of ways around them.

Eh, I get your point but to me it is mostly about experience.
A good Fire user is probably skilled in avoiding such shields or can concentrate enough fire to breach it.
You know what I mean?
I like your point but I myself think the elements are in the end just the extension of their user so it all depends on how skilled the actual person is with them. Plus the fact that you can command multiple elements can create various synergies.

Yay! And that is so true: you kids, if you only found your confidence, what a difference you would feel! :)

Did they just slice off their own fingers?

22nd Mar 2017, 11:11 AM

Lol naw she cut the vines beyond finger-length :D

Did she just cut off the vines faster than with the speed of light?? Because that's how fast electricity moves - speed of light. (Well, to be precise, that's how fast the charge of electricity moves. The difference is negligible.)

I know, it's iffy. Magical fictional physics. Suspension of disbelief and all that.

23rd Oct 2017, 8:02 AM

*ggg* OK - Focus on the characters and all that. :D

22nd Mar 2017, 9:39 PM

Yup! Cannot obtain more power without trying!
You know, sometimes I feel like certain elemental users should just live a quiet life somewhere normal without thinking about elements but then there are not many options and the academy IS doing that in a way...

Sure. There are a number of Plant users (Synthia, Alan, Flow) who like going out into the woods and just surviving there.

Well all that training with Chaz (sp?) wasn't in vain after all huh? Even if Jess is afraid, she already has the skills necessary to win. Once she gets more combat experience, she'll be a force to be reckoned with.

24th Mar 2017, 10:04 PM

Aye, though I like to think it's more to do with her natural talent rather than her father's (Chass btw) lousy training methods :D

25th Mar 2017, 2:30 PM

True but I'm sure the training, no matter how lousy, is playing some role, even if it merely increases her endurance lol. There are definitely better ways to train, and training does no good if you don't allow your body to rest afterwards.
