Bunker business...


Setting up a bunker is more than just throwing up some pallets or staking down an air ball can. It's an art as well as a science. There's even a bit of psychology involved. Building a safe bunker is most important but you don't want to make a bunker to comfortable. A bunker isn't a place where you want players camping out. A bunker should be a stopping off point on the way to the next one.

Building an impenetrable bunker is not good. A bunker that can not be taken will create a stalemate and will frustrate attackers. Building a bunker a player will get slaughtered in is not good either because, well... it's not a bunker at all.  When you build a tournament field you have to consider symetry and mirrors.  Too sanitary and boring in my mind.

The one thing I miss here at T-Square is terrain.  A flood plain tends to be pretty flat.  Digging trenches and piling up dirt helps till it rains and the dirt turns into mud and the ditches fill up with water. I once had a group talk me into taking them out when there was 6 inches of water standing on the entire 40 acres.  I watched a running player suddenly disappear. A split second later he came up out of a ditch/bunker that was hidden by the water, splashing and yelling and fortunately, laughing.

A bunker can be as elaborate as an EMR castle or as simple as a brush pile. What's your favorite kind of bunker?

LMAO... Only because I grew up short can I understand your tall problem. Does that make any sense? Maybe I can set up a "Cliff Rule" - any hit above your belly button doesn't count.
