Re: Duelfest 2018

Oooh, nice! I was going to do 300 vs. 2000 and one point but my 300 isn't in the best shape (leaks) and then my 2000 started pump shooting. Back then I would've predicted the 2000 to win, but today those results aren't particularly surprising, especially after the season opener where my team had too...

Re: HOG

Okay, so the 7th doesn't seem to work for a lot of people (possibly me included). How about July 21st, with arrival on the night of the 20th?

Re: Flash Flood?

Definitely not a Flash Flood. Just look at it side-by-side with a real one. It's a copycat, although I do think it's cool that it's one of the only stock guns that you wouldn't have to paint, haha. Well maybe the orange parts.

Re: HOG

So in light of a large chunk of people dropping out, we're moving this thing to next month. How does July 7th sound? We absolutely want to have it this year, but we need help from you all too. If you know you can't make a date that I throw out, please say so. The end result will absolutely be worth ...

Re: Duelfest 2018

Hmm, very interesting. What are the stats for the Storm 2500? isoaker doesn't have them. Not sure if the 150 is the "greatest" light primary ever, but it is favored by a lot of people. Also you can't call the 750 the greatest pistol of all time until you match it up with an MD 4000, Liquidator, Trip...

Re: HOG

Hey guys, checking in again. The thread says that the event begins on the 22nd through 23rd. Just to clarify, we drive in on the 22nd, but all of the fighting is on the 23rd? Everything looks great, but I was wondering if we could increase attendance just a little. Do you have confirmations from DX...

Favorite Type of Fighting?

What's your favorite way to do battle? Here's mine: Field: I like my fields on the larger side, but not so large that you can't find anyone. Proper scaling for the number of players is key. They must have ample cover and concealment, and you should never be able to see your opponent at the start of ...

It's hard to get any confirmations this far in advance (as it is with any sort of event), but the interest is definitely there. The war is on if th...

Re: Time Spent Fighting at Major Wars

Quality over quantity is definitely a good thing, and that can be applied many times throughout life as well. However I'm of the mind that a battle should always be set up for high quality. And if the quality is indeed so great, then why would you not spend more time playing? (If it doesn't end up w...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

Of course both systems have downsides, but the feel-based one is simpler, so it gets the nod for League battles. And honestly, the point you make about us wearing thick clothing actually makes it kind of similar to the old way anyway. You need to be hit with a more direct stream to feel it. Hit disp...

Re: Time Spent Fighting at Major Wars

Oooh, neat graphs. Yeah, there was a time where we only did Saturday and half of Sunday, then we moved up to doing the entire weekend, but now it's gone the other way and wars are often just Saturday. I don't really mind this, because it's like one day dedicated to the hardcore battle, and the next ...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

My mom said the same thing. "96 degrees? Oh, that's perfect for a water war!" Except that I never actually got hit, and even those who did get hit only got sprinkled a bit. The only time we got to cool off was in the creek. Hardcore water wars do not mix well with heat. But I enjoy the extra challen...

Time Spent Fighting at Major Wars

For the past few years I've been tracking how much time we actually spend fighting per day at each major community war. Some of the times are estimated, going by war reports and stuff, but the results may be eye-opening for some. So without further ado... Downpour 2011 Saturday: 2.25 hours Sunday mo...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

This was one of the best battles I've ever been in, despite the fact that it got cut short. It was probably the hottest war in community history, but to me that was simply another tactical disadvantage to overcome. We lugged in all our gear from Ranch Rd, which definitely sucked. The terrain was thi...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

Respawn time is a full minute behind friendly lines. Yell clear when you return to battle. I put down two minutes. Don't you think it would be better to have it longer rather than shorter? I feel like if the respawn times are too short, that leads to the battle staying in the same place too much. A...

Re: 2018 Water Warriors/BBT Blasters

As for why can't they just bring back the old models? The retailers don't want "old", they want new. This doesn't explain why they keep re-releasing certain models though. The Equalizer (known as the Outlaw now) is almost a decade old and they're still making those. There's a new color scheme for t...

I'll list player stats too since this is the tactics section and all. Soakfest: Assuming we're talking a competitive soakfest, I'd say the most important stat is output, because obviously, the goal is to soak your opponent as much as possible. This is followed by field life, because opportunities to...
