Help me understand.

Post by DJ Squidley » Wed Nov 16, 2016 7:47 pm

What makes a maaaannn, it's another man, help me understaaand.
The self-proclaimed lord of cringe strikes once again!

I require an explanation on how battles are organized (stand-by for idiocy), since there aren't really any players close to each other, do all the players for a game mail their army to the "game-master", or do they spend a ton of money to drive/ fly over to play? I'm sorry, I'd love to eventually play a game, but I don't know PRECISELY how they're organized. Please help answer my question(*Takes on cute/devilish 5 year old voice* I doubt anyone wants to play with me though...).

Well you earthier find somebody to fight be it a friend you know and get them into it or you can do forum battles where the host uses their own armies to stage a battle where orders are submitted to the host who then Photographs and posts the the results of the turns.

Your first mistake is trying to quote Depeche Mode and messing it up.

A lot of Brikwars players supply multiple armies when having battles in person. Simply have a selection of bricks, figures and vehicles on standby, and let your friends, siblings or kidnapped hobo's make their own army out of them. Obviously don't go building the Super Heavy DEATH Tank for yourself, and then try and convince your friends that they should be happy fighting it with 6 figures and a horse. As a rule of thumb I've generally let my opponent chose to swap armies if they wish, meaning I've always built two armies of equal power that I would be happy to play either.

If you want to play a forum battle, get over to the sub-forum and find a sign-up thread for a game. Remember that signing up to a forum battle has some small amount of responsibility, and there is some etiquette arounds getting your orders in on time, and keeping the GM appraised if you are going to be unable to do your turns for some time.

And if folks end up being unpunctual with their orders, you could impose a 48 h deadline for sending orders. If they haven't sent orders by then, you could try to NPC them or ask for another user to jump in, instead.

Ok, I understand you're a legend and all, but.. Do you want to butter the other side too? And I'm not trying to sound like one of those classmates you've had who is the greatest artist you've ever seen but just dismisses their drawings as "just a doodle" or "oh, it's terrible". Because, that right there, is the very definition of irony, and I know for sure when something of mine is good or bad, especially when compared to other peoples' work, now I'm not saying my armies are ugly, but, they're just, ok.

The honour would be all mine, just don't forget this little guy ( , ). So, since I have spoken to you, does that mean I can get the warning: hangs out with overwatch badge?

Well then, sign me up boi! Does that mean I have to avidly use Skype though? If I don't seem edgy enough to you, that is in fact because I am a self-proclaimed S-class meme (unless you ask my very close school friends).
