Re: Max D HydrocaLambabambababoo

I'm currently looking at treating the Max D valve like any hardware store's ball valve and not really bothering with a trigger, I'll cook something up if it gets really inconvenient. The nozzle does have plenty of spare plastic attached to it, I could set up a little return spring there and find a p...

Because it's made of parts derived from a Max D 6k, a Hydrocannon, and apparently a Lambabambababoo

Max D HydrocaLambabambababoo

Four years ago, I picked up a broken Hydrocannon of the side of the road. I outlined what I did with it here , (in case you're wondering, no, I haven't touched it since my last update there; I's a busy busy boi). However, the side project I talked about, I've been inspired to work on again. The idea...

Re: Favorite Water Warriors Blaster

In order to answer that question, I decided to watch a few videos of rhinos giving birth, they don't do much, just sort of chill there while the baby comes out. So I guess I used a bad example, the WW Scorpion is loud, apparently significantly louder than a rhino in labour. As for the nozzle selecto...

Re: Favorite Water Warriors Blaster

For me, it goes: -Lightning ('05 remake): Lightweight, but still busts out a thick 5x which, at least on mine, pretty reliably hit 40'. I find it very comfortable, although others may dislike the handle. Pumps up relatively quickly too. -Blazer ('05 remake): Like the Lightning, better at most things...

Re: Your Soakfest Top 25

My experience with soakfests was mainly a collection of Blazers and Flash Floods facing off, with the Blazers having the upper hand the whole time except for when it was time to actually pull the trigger. After that point, it just became a game of whether the FFs could connect the hit then run quick...

Re: If You Were A Video Game Character

It's hard to think of something realistic that I'd have. Probably magical attacks. You know, summon up rain clouds, tidal waves, strong winds, etc.

Hard to say for sure though, magic is unpredictable at best.

Re: If you only had One

Well, to this day, my favourite blaster that I've used has been the WW Lightning, so I suppose a modded version of that is what I want, and I'll just describe what I was after when I modded mine. Reservoir volume doesn't need to be high, I can do with <1.5L (Lightning has like 1.2 and that was just ...

Re: large team loadouts

It would likely depend on broadly what my role within the team is. Also, I'm assuming each person supplies his own refill water in this battle? Generally I like to travel pretty light, don't like backpacks very much, not that interested in sidearms. I'd probably take a mid-CPS/big-WW, some empty wat...

Re: Team Size versus Skill

My opinion is that skill level matters to an extent, but not completely. So if we've got experienced players mixed with first-timers, then I'd want to make sure there's an even mix in each team. However, if everyone's got at least a little bit of skill, then in my experience team chemistry starts to...

Re: Lonnie Johnson Sues Hasbro

It is possible to start up a lawsuit for low quality products, it's been done before anyway. Why do I know this? Apparently class is helpful after all.

Not sure how it would work in this case, but a clever lawyer can make anything happen.

Re: Latest Soaker / Water Blaster

I tried doing a PC replacement on it, made a whole new PC out of like 40 or 50 balloons, and I suppose one of the balloons tore off and got sucked into the internals (that's my guess). Every summer I say I'll fix it, and every summer I get caught up doing something else, so we'll see if it ever gets...

Oh my jeezus soakinader, that is just incredible.

Re: Shields and melee weapons - yes or no?

Being the huge LotR fan that I am, I've thought many times about melee weapons and how awesome they would be. I haven't yet thought of a way to make them worth it, but if one day there is a mechanism that allows them to dish out enough water without hurting someone, I don't see any reason to ban the...

Re: what is battle practicality

Yes, I agree, I'm not helping a less experienced user. I just wanted to go to the other extreme as even I was getting lost in the overly thorough breakdowns of soaker attributes (doesn't help that I tend to read these things well after midnight when I'm already half asleep :P).
