Got to the theater around 2:30. after wandering around a bit some of the other fighters started showing up and then the fun began.
We blocked off part of the parking lot and proceeded to pummel each other with our foam weapons.
Did all right with my flail and shield but course still ended up getting trounced when certain people were on the other team. Namely Usal for the few of you who would actually know who that is.
But the fun started when we broke out the pole arms. always fun hitting people from over 6 feet away. :)
Two of my funniest momments for the day was shortly after starting to use to polearm Shatterhaze the guy whoose polearms they were was like "Come over here and let me show you something."
Now i've fought polearm before and from the way he came over i figured the point he wanted to make.
Polearms have the weekness of you get past the tip and you are screwed. So carry a backup weapon. Normally a dagger.
Well Shatterhaze came over and it was just funny that the first time i managed to simply kill him before he could show the point. was rather funny seeing the shocked look. :)
Well the problem with me using the dagger became evident in that daggers do jack against armor. and he was wearing armor.
Which leads to the second silly thing with polearms. I'm facing Shatterhaze me with polearm him with polearm and dagger. Its a team battle. He gets in close we both end up dropping the polearms and he tries to stab me with the dagger. I don't know how i did it exactly but i managed to get him into something like a bear hug with his hand with the dagger locked at the elbow or something where he couldn't stab me.
So what do i do. I pick the guy up literally. and start dragging him towards a nearby teammate yelling "TREVOR! Some Help here" Ended up getting him close enough for trevor to hit him right when one of his teammates killed me.
I can't wait to see it on tape and at least part of it was caught on camera.
But we fought from like 3 til 6 or 7 then went to a buffet but when we came back it was raining so couldn't fight. but i'm glad we didn't fight more. :)
