    Updated Type Chart for Battles

    I am hoping to come up with an updated chart for the dragon types listed below that includes input/experiences/thoughts from other players.

    Question number one has to be....
    Where did the original type chart information come from? Was this info provided by the people who wrote (or at least those who were aware of) the code for Dragon Story battles? Was this info collected over time from users?

    Storm 8 does not have an official chart. Remember the chart is not always going to be perfect since it is not maintained by Storm 8.

    I would like to start a discussion about updating the type chart for dragon battles due to the addition of several new types to the Dragon Story lineup: Bomb/Dynamite/Food/Map/Dark (corrupt). I would also like to discuss the type chart in regards to the following types [as I feel their current info in the type chart is either inaccurate (Arctic Isle) or doesn't reflect the reported experiences of many users]: Champion/Valentine/Olympus/Arctic Isle dragon types.

    I've broken these down into a few different groups and will add info to each separate post:
    -Champion
    -Dark (corrupt)
    -Bomb/Dynamite/Map/Food
    -Olympus/Valentine
    -Arctic Isle

    The following post has influenced much of my thinking regarding what I propose for updating the chart (if we don't get any new info from Storm8): Magic in the Arena [the difference between using bash or magic against an opponent in battle]. In a nutshell, I do think there's a difference between using bash or magic. Since reading that thread, I now pay much closer attention to the attacks opponents use against my dragons. The info I propose for updating the chart is based on the magic attack used by a particular type of opponent dragon. For example, Blizzard (Arctic Isle) dragons use yellow/tornadoes magic. My line of thinking is to treat Blizzard types as though they are yellow types in terms of strengths/weaknesses against them.

    Is there anything I'm missing? Are there other factors to be considered? Perhaps looking at what the dragon is neutral to, according to the original chart? Anything else?

    Champion types

    -----------------------------------

    This is what the ORIGINAL type chart has to say about Champion types:

    Enemy Type
    Use
    Avoid using
    Champion Type has no effect here Abominable, Black, Blizzard, Blue, Champion, Cosmic, Dino, Fairytale, Gemstone, Gold, Green, Ice Age, Mythic, Pink, Purple, Rainbow, Red, Royal, Stone, Tropic, White, Yellow, Zodiac

    The problem with this is that "Type has no effect here" is useless information. Also, it's clear there are certain dragons types that have an advantage over champions (*ahem* diamond types).

    By looking at what's not listed as a type to be avoided (in other words, types that are neutral), I propose the following UPDATED chart:

    Enemy Type
    Use
    Avoid using
    Champion The following types are "neutral" to champion types: Diamond, Egypt, Metal, Olympus, Soccer, Valentine

    **Users have reported that low level dragons are sometimes useful against high level champs
    Black, Blue, Champion, Cosmic, Dino, Fairytale, Gemstone, Gold, Green, Mythic, Pink, Purple, Rainbow, Red, Royal, Stone, Tropic, White, Yellow, Zodiac

    Dark (corrupt) types

    -----------------------------------

    The Dark (corrupt) type isn't listed on the original type chart. It's my personal opinion that they behave more like champs than anything else. I have noticed a difference in the data I keep regarding battles with champs vs. battles with dark types.
    -I notice in battles with champs that my diamond types win more so over anything else.
    -I notice in battles with dark types that I have a mix of winners including: diamond types/white types/champ types (Rainbow Sentinel & Glasswing, to be more specific).

    Based on info I talked about in post #3, I propose the following UPDATED chart:

    Enemy Type
    Use
    Avoid using
    Dark (corrupt) Corrupt dragons use black "smoke" magic; consider dragons that are strong against black types: green, white, cosmic, rainbow, royal, champion, Egypt
    **Users have reported success with champs & white types
    Corrupt dragons use black "smoke" magic; consider avoiding dragons that are weak against black types: yellow, pink, fairytale, gemstone

    Arctic Isle types (Abominable/Blizzard/Ice Age):

    -----------------------------------

    This is what the ORIGINAL type chart has to say about Arctic Isle types:

    Enemy Type
    Use
    Avoid using
    Arctic Isle
    -Abominable
    Blizzard, Champion Ice Age
    Arctic Isle
    -Blizzard
    Ice Age, Champion Abominable
    Arctic Isle
    -Ice Age
    Abominable, Champion Blizzard

    The obvious problem with this information is that we aren't able to use any Arctic Isle dragons in battle. I have to wonder if we could use these dragons at one time or if there was a plan for us to be able to use these dragons and the plan got scrapped. Either way, we presently can't use Arctic Isle types in battle, so this info is useless (except to note that champs are strong against Arctic Isle types).

    The original battle chart was provided by players. It has been updated from time to time, when players post new information.
    Storm 8 does not have an official chart .

    Here is the current chart to date. After some players have tried out the new information and it looks good, then it can be added to the current chart.
