You're probably wondering why the ref brought you this note
well, I just thought I'd try to open up the lines of communication a bit
after all these games can sometimes drag on for a while in a sort of stalemate
especially when players don't move around very much
so since you're in my mirror and I'm in your mirror I thought hey,
there's no reason why we shouldn't be friends, or at least civil towards each other.
I figured what better way to do that than to send you this note so I could
wish you a good day, and
see if you felt like surrendering.
So what do you say, feel like surrendering?"
I think I want to try that next game... Print it out on some nice paper and send it to him in a letter and when he's reading through it proceed to walk up on him and stand behind him until he's done. Then ask for a surrender.
Could not manage to get the video to play...
I have only ever had a few people refuse to surrender that stayed on the field. I personally like getting surrenders more then shots to the point where I've considered carrying a paintbrush with lipstick on it like one of the scenario teams which I can't remember off the top of my head.
I did have 20-23 people all with their backs to me that surrendered at First Strike. This was also at night. Boy were they mad... Kept saying that I didn't have my arm-band up high enough... They did eventually walk off though.
I also had a game over in Titusville where I surrendered 13 at once.
My favorite though was sneaking up right behind someone and setting my marker down and picking up a stick. I then proceeded to barrel tag them with the stick. He did not appreciate that.
I also remember a group of three that were in a small bunker that I tried to surrender the dad turned to try and shoot though. I dropped down into the bunker next to me and snapped out and managed to hit one of them. Turned out it was a kid I didn't like having to do that.
Most of the people that I do try and surrender and they refuse I remember and know to just shoot them right in the small of their back. (Mostly the ones that have turned and shot me... 4 or 5 in the 12ish years I've played)
There are several problems with the surrender rule and I hate when an experienced player turns to try and shoot at me.
Most have not been successful the worst though is when I scare a little kid when I yell surrender.
Do you think you're dead player or freeze would work better?
