Talk:Dance-Fighting

"Alternatively, dance-fighting may be a completely different combat mechanic, where non-dance-fighting units may automatically forfeit. Furthermore, losing a dance-fight might not croak units, but rather humiliate them and cause them to rout. If combat is stack-vs-stack, then the dance-fighting units in a stack represent the entire stack in the dance-fight, and can save non-dance-fighting units from humiliation. "


The Above is completely innaccurate - see Erf-b1-p128Same-site.PNG Removing from the article but leaving it pasted here so it is not lost.

That theory is apparently based on the concept of "getting served," which has not so far been substantiated by anything in the comic, but might yet happen in the future (at least, I hope so). -- Commander I. Heartly Noah June 7 2009 01:00

Dance Fight Types

Page 133 of Book 1 seems to indicate that there are different types of dance-fighting: Lord Hamster orders Wanda to set up a "Safety Dance", an obvious reference to the song by "Men Without Hats". Are there therefore offensive dance-fighting types and defensive ones?

I propose that this be put as speculation. --Darren 22:15, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Certainly there are different styles of dancefighting, at least - the KISS have some style, Transylvito & co. went 50s era, Grease-style dance-off, Wanda and her host of uncroaked broke out the choreographed zombo-line dance, and Ansom/Charlescomm offered the "dancing for idiots" DDR matrix to assist their untrained soldiers. Aside from the benefit of leading the uninitiated with the DDR thing, the effects of the differing styles are anyone's guess. -- Commander I. Heartly Noah June 7 2009 01:00

I think this is part of the 'challenged to a dance fight' thing. Think about it, I bet ballet would kick heiny, you know? Xewleer 01:16, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Natural Ability

Is it confirmed that dance-fight is a natural ability? I like to think of it as something units can learn. --Welf von Ehrwald 22:49, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
