Happy Friday and the bear guy has a name. TWC image is Kytana. Anything else?

Glad to see the bear has a name. Also, I'm amazed that after all the hubbub of facing a single team, you are now having them face ANOTHER TEAM. Is it madness or GENIUS? You decide!

I can't wait for a Sev nude with an open coat. I suppose you might be waiting until after the battle for that one.

Hmmm, wonder if the bear is a glass tank, but it looks like Sev will be upgrading to a fur coat, or at least fur-trimmed (depending on how much is left and what quality it is left in)

A glass tank? How exactly does that work? They're like total opposites. Kinda like fire water

It's sort of like the glass chin term, meaning it's supposed to be strong but it's actually very weak. :D

I thought the term for it was Glass Cannon, strong offensive, but weak defense.

From what I remember, a tank si supoose to have high HP and Def, to 'tank' the damage.

Cannon/tank, same difference: point being, they dish it out but break easily when get hit in return

A lot of people don't know the difference between a 'tank' and a 'meat shield'

The point of a tank is to be REALLY tough. When people think of tanks at least in RPGs and TV Tropes, they think of someone with a really high defense. As opposed to a cannon with high offense.

And those people are confusing 'meatshield' with 'tank'

'Meatshield': high defense, low offense
'Cannon': low defense, high offense
'Tank': high defense _and_ high offense (just like a real tank)

Oh and Sokora? 'Fire water' is a real thing

Where exactly are you getting the tank= high defense and offense definition?

I've never come across an usage of the term that wasn't referring to something that prioritized defense over offense. It's entirely possible for a tank character to be able to dish it out as well as take it, but it's not the focus. That's left to wading into the worst your opponent can throw at you and let them keep punching until they get tired, then say "is that all you got?"

Never saw a real tank then?

In terms of fighters and RPGs that is NEVER how a "tank" is described. It has always meant to represent a high defense character to take a lot of damage so others dont. Never has it been used to represent a damage dealer

Oh, hey. All caught up now! :D

My good chaps, it occurs to me that a tank has a high defensive capacity best utilized in defending caravans carrying supplies.
