Doh!

For a second there as the graph came up, I was excited that *everyone* had picked the same choice as me -- wow, lots of people have the exact right idea about this!

And then I realized the total number of people who'd picked so far was 1 - me.

LOL.

In my opinion..

its really a combination of 2 things:

laff points accompanied by strong gags. I voted for gag strength however. I suppose it doesn't matter if they are only a 50 laffer if they have maxed out their throw and squirt or any of the others, cause their gags are so strong.

I met a 81 laffer in Dreamland and they hadn't even maxed their throw and squirt or any other gags for that matter...I was like HUH??

So its more about gag strength but if I see a 100 laffer all maxed that to me is uber...

oh

wait a sec..LOL I read the poll this time. 4 ppl so far have picked the way they play.

I don't think the way they play makes them an uber..but others do apparently.

So on my first day with my SECOND toon, I was uber cause I play well (cause I know how to play as a team member very well from my first toon)?

cool...lol

I personally think it's the gag strength/Laff Points and the way you play. I know several high laffer maxed toons that suck to play with so I don't think they are very Uberesque.

Having maxed 100 laff maxed skills does not make you uber... I've played with several toons that fit that description who didn't know how to play, or weren't nice people.

So yes, if you know how to play you're uber. ^_^

Another way to put it for me is, would I rather share a building with 3 40 laff toons who know what's what, or with three 100 laff max toons who don't? Because I've tried both and the former is much to be preferred. ^_^

My opinion is this....

It's a combination of many factors that makes you uber....

1) Laff points -- anything above 85 give you the first part of uberdom.

2) Gag strength -- gags don't necessarily be maxed for uberdom but by 85 you should have at least throw maxed & squirt nearly maxed or some combination of two gags. (BTW, I played with a 100 laffer last night who had no gags maxed)

3) Playing ability -- Not even necessarily being a "team player" because knowing when to just go for the kill is an important part of staying alive in some of those high level buildings. Coordinating gags is also important.

4) Willingness to help -- being willing to help others with their tasks even though it won't advance yours.... not all the time, your tasks are important too, of course. :)

5) Respect -- respecting other toons and their playing. No "You stinks" and "please go aways." These are people too... not just cartoons on a screen.

In my eyes, having all of these things makes you uber. Lacking one or two makes you demi-uber... you have the potential for uberness but have not quite achieved it. Of course, there are exceptions for all of the above. :)

Its all in the way you play. Takes experience to make you uber. And i know lots of good "uber nubers" i can bring to dreamland and win a level 5 bldg with. I've seen alot of 100 laffers make alot of mistakes. (including my first 100 laffer)LOL.

Takes awhile to learn the game, lots of different scenario's to experience, tons of fun getting there!!

Some of the above.

Strength, Laff, and the way they play. What gag track they choose is up to them ... although if they don't have Toon-Up or Lure I don't consider them 00ber ... so maybe you can add Gags also.

The idea of an "Uber" toon still make me cackle.

The best players that I have met (ie the ones that I enjoy playing with the most) have made playing fun, without meaning to cause other players any disadvantage. That is a lot easier to do if you have lots of Laff points and high level gags. But it doesn't mean you have to have them to be able to play this way.

And like those posters above me, I have met a lot of players who think getting to 100 LP as quickly as possible is what iut is all about. Most of those players dont seem to stick around for long (with one noteable exception).

But if I had to answer the question as asked then I would say that a toon is probably Uber when they dont need to know whether they are Uber or not.

Laff Points. Think how many cogs and buildings they beat to get that many Laff points.
