    Alright that was a very informative discussion! Our Abilities Leader and Topic Leader have provided us a generous slate of options to choose from for CAP 6's Primary Ability, so we will use this series of polls to narrow that list of options down to one.

    This will be an Instant Runoff Vote (IRV), the details of which are outlined here. Order does matter in your votes! This means that you can upvote your favorite and downvote your least favorite, and that you may choose to vote for as many or as few options as you like. Bold your votes and nothing else! A typical vote might look like the following:

    CAP uses automated scripts to count votes. For this reason, it is very important for all ballots to be submitted correctly. If you do not compose a legal ballot, your post will be subject to moderation.
    • The scripts count bold words in ballots, so do NOT bold anything in your ballot other than the options you are voting for.
    • Do NOT put any formatting other than bold in your post.
    • Only one option per line.
    • Spelling of options must be EXACTLY correct and must match the spelling listed above.
    • Capitalization and spaces are ignored by the vote counting scripts, but you probably should not depend on it.
    Composing a proper ballot is easy. Enter BBCode Edit Mode (the A in the upper right corner). Copy/paste the options directly from the OP to your ballot as plain unbolded text. Delete and/or rearrange the options to suit your preference and the poll type. Bold your vote text using bold tags or re-enter rich text mode, highlight your vote and click B. Spelling or formatting errors may spoil your ballot, so be careful!

    Please post only your votes in this thread. Do not respond to other posts, or your posts will be moderated and you may be warned. You are allowed to say whatever you like in relation to your vote at the bottom of your post, but please do not look to begin a discussion. Keep those comments to #cap on IRC.


    This poll will be open for 24 hours. These are the abilities you may vote for:

    Intimidate
    Motor Drive
    Regenerator
    Sand Rush
    Unburden
    Water Absorb

    These two probably have the best shot at aiding our setup now that Magic Bounce is gone.

    MD could force a switch and aid in the speed department, but is very situational. The next two could provide a decent opportunity to force a switch, but will likely require a very high base speed stat to aid sweeping. Unburden won't help set up, but it will help sweep, so we would likely have to opt for more defense instead of speed to aid set-up. Overall I don't think that any ability alone is a good choice for a BD sweeper, and a lot of help will need to come from the statspread.
