In Topic: Pow! Pittsburgh Offseason Wars!

Hey guys.

I am planning on attending the November foray, it's just a matter if I can get there, and now that my roommate has a car, I feel like that shouldn't be a problem. I may even be able to convince a few friends to come tag along.

Also I plan on hosting the December/Christmas war being as its become a sort of tradition being it was the first major war held in Pittsburgh by Steel City Nerf. I will post details for it as soon as I get the ok from my pastor. (It will be held at my church)

I would seriously like to applaud your for that excellent come-back. I'm serious.

I completely agree with Falcon's quote. Nerf wars are meant to be fun, and they become that way by keeping things fresh by way of different game types. You can see that I agree with it from my latest topic, posted yesterday, Swashbuckler's Heaven. I sincerely hope that you didn't post that because you were trying to say that I host wars as boring as the kind detailed in Falcon's quote, because I don't. I make it a point to try out new and exciting game types each time I host a war, in fact, I'll be doing just that this Saturday.

I really am glad that you did this to make your particular nerf wars more fun for you and your friends, it just isn't my cup of tea. I would also like to apologize for yelling at you earlier. I wasn't pissed off about your first post, it was the second one where you made it seem as if Swords didn't know what he was talking about. I really hate it when someone makes it appear as if they are better than everyone else. Swords is your peer, don't baby-talk him.

Still, I don't want any bad blood between us, so I hope you accept my apology.

Two questions: If you manage to get within range and hit someone with your sword without challenging them to a duel, it counts right?


Right

Also, what happens if someone does get you with their sword may they then get you again the immediately after that, or is there a set no-fighting time in which you may move away from the person who got you and they can't follow?


Well, yeah. There's the time it takes for the person who was hit to put their armband on. You really shouldn't shoot at the person while they are doing that. However, because of the added close combat part to this game, it may be wise to instate a 15 second time period starting at the time you were shot. This would work like any 3/15 set of rules, except minus the 3.

EDIT: Other than that, great game type idea.


Thanks, and thanks for the constructive criticism.

My main problem with this game is it comes too close to a mil-sim. Nerf isn't supposed to be a realistic representation of war, and or terrorism/counter-terrorism. That's why most games that are the most fun for nerf are the least realistic i.e. Deathmatch, CTF, and Gunsliger's Heaven.

Oh, and if you're going to have another bitch hissyfit, regarding constructive criticism from members on the forum you posted this idea asking for help, like the one re-posted below:

I don't see much complication in the rules, even a third grader could understand this provided that he knows how to read. You get shot you lose a number on the 3/15 and must clear the area. To make it simpler to the lesser minded you have nine lives. To know more about the 3/15 rule read Badger's "Nerf War Ettiguette" thread. It's pinned for a reason.


Fuck-off, and read these articles written by Pineapple and VACC that are about the subject I just wrote about.
