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...

Re: Latest Soaker / Water Blaster

Oh my jeezus soakinader, that is just incredible. I live near a VV but never had any luck with it, maybe more frequent visits are in order (I worked literally right next door to one over the summer, paid them a couple of visits during lunch breaks, no dice). You, my friend, have mastered this art. A...

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: Which Performance Mods have YOU done?

Does the end result HAVE to be an improvement in performance? Cause then I lose a lot of my stories :P Successful mods: -K-mod on a 1200 -Crappy (but still successful) colossus on a Flash Flood -PC capacity enhancements on said Flash Flood -Nozzle drills on a few blasters -PC swap between a Blazer a...

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).

I felt like bumping this thread. I haven't done any work, the blaster is still in cozy hibernation next to my 2700, but I figured it'd be nice to have this thread as a bit of motivation to get me working next week. Send me your good thoughts and maybe I'll have a couple of new blasters rise from the...

Re: what is battle practicality

My definition is less complicated but a lot more open-ended. It's simply: how well can you use this blaster in a given game? Because really, sometimes you perform better with something that shouldn't make sense. For example, my XP 110 compared to a mid-sized CPS rifle. About the same size and weight...

Re: New Water Warriors - Colossus 2

Internal pics; nice! Side question: tools in the car, I understand, but why are you opening the blaster in your car? :goofy: Looks like the Colossus 2's PC is a little smaller than the original Colossus. Otherwise, nice clean layout. How does it perform? :cool: Long boring drive maybe? If you thoug...

10 XP 215s, done and done. Bow to my might. Now, let me try to do this seriously: Of course, I have to take personal preference out of this and make the assumption that all players do just as well with whatever blaster they're given (actually not true for me, gimme a WW Lightning or XP 110 and I'll ...

Range may be able to hit 10' on a good day. As for output, think of it this way: you fill the reservoir with a dropper, and it takes a good 10 seconds of holding the trigger down to empty it.
