I play locally here on a team and what started as a joke about using tactics from the battle room on the Field turned into a awesome tactic we use regularly. We regularly now send people to slip the sides of the walls instead of just pin and flank we actually have 4 guns coming up thier rear, steady fire from all sides [Smile] I was wondering if anything else could possibly translate battle room moves into something plausible in full gravity.

I did the exact same thing with my friends playing laser tag, one time in eighth grade. It was amazing to share such a wonderful inside joke with my friends, and it made laser tag SO much more fun!
(we kept shouting "The enemy's gate is down!!" across the room to each other and confusing everyone who didn't know what we were talking about.)

OK, take the smallest person on your team and tie a rope around his/her waist. Then throw him/her as hard as you can into the middle of the field and when he/she gets to the end of the rope, pull as hard as you can on it.

This probably won't help you win, but should be hilarious to watch!

Editted for spelling. Thanks Rat. Or is it Dog?

maybe use it in an RTS, or if you play an FPS in a clan, spread the word around, make some videos of it and post on youtube so we can see!


here's a few links to some screen capturing software

I tried to use some tactics with laser tag but no one wanted to be a human shield. [Frown] Not that i don't blame them.

hey alex johnson, thank you so much for those links, they are really nice!

Also, i actually tried to apply the battle room tactics to a game of risk...it didn't work out that well.
