forget about being hardcore or cutting throats in pursuit of a win

- Well-organized team games.
- Intense, high action rounds that require a lot of quick-thinking.
- Long periods of playtime, regardless of whether it's one continuous game or broken up into multiple rounds and/or phases.
- Challenging: Well balanced, but challenges each team member to do their best. As quoted on NerfHaven: "Winning rounds is rewarding, deal with it. We don't play **** patty cake over here." Now, knowing me, I'm probably the least victory-obsessed, "need-to-win" player around, but winning is a bit of a reward, and can be like a confirmation of skills; a demonstration that you did something right and rose above the challenges placed before you.
isoaker wrote:I do? Well, depending on how you want to define a battle, my answer would be either really low or really high. Most of my water wars are either duels or small free-for-alls with the occasional larger group event if I manage to get enough people together. If we're just talking casual dueling, 19+ would be easy. However, if you want to know how many truly organized battles wherein I gathered people together to actually have a water fight was, I'd probably say only about 3-5. Of course, if you want to count the days I actually use a water blaster (though not in the battling sense), I could probably pass a hundred with ease.
