Digging for fossils here... Gots another Type for you. I know you guys missed me ;)

The Sea Cow
They're so darn cute... But... The three undefended mines they left on your doorstep look so darn tasty... But... They're so nice... But... If you attack them, you're guaranteed to win... But... They trust you...
A Combination of: The Guppy and The Dolphin
How to Spot: The guy who cheerfully tells you he just dropped his third mine... except that it's day two.
Favorite Specialist: Infiltrator (strictly for defensive purposes)
Mining Tendency: *Facepalm* Again?
Diplomatic Style: So lovable. The Sea Cow will be your favorite person ever. Until you murder them, that is. But it will be with tears in your eyes that you do so.
Friend: Casual Players
"This is easily the most fun I've had in a game!"
"Same here! Who cares about winning!"
"I know, right!"


Foe: Callous Bastards
"This is easily the most fun I've had in a game!"
"Same here! Who cares about winning!"
"I know, ri- wait, what are those?!?!?"
"Oh, I care about winning."

The Seal (cause I didn't know what else to call it...)
Long day of school/work, you check your phone. It says 50 subterfuge messages. "That's odd" you say, considering you are only in 2 games. You open the app, there's 2 in your first and 48 in your second game. Open that game, check the chat and.... 48 messages from one player. ONE PLAYER! He talks nonstop, and doesn't seem to understand the game. And it seems he only talks to you.
How to spot: you'll know very quickly.
Favourite Specialist: anything he can trade you to get your king
Mining tendency: what's mining?
Diplomatic style: well, you have the most experience and seem the nicest, so he'll just continually talk to you.
Foe: sea cucumber. He never replies...
"Hi!
Hi!
Hi!
Wanna be allies!
I think green is attacking you!
Should I mine now?!
What's the shield do?

Ok, thanks. I know how to play...
Can I have your King?!
Hello?!
Hi!

Well everyone adapts. Any player with sense will not do the same exact strategy no matter what the circumstances are. We adapt. That's why we're humans.

Thank you! That just made my day.

I totally agree, if I had to pick the one thread that I enjoyed reading the most and was most useful it would definetely be this one. You can see how much effort you put into this.

Thanks for this thread Roady
