Remember Ninjutsu?
Hey guys.
2handcIap here and as some of you know, I've been away for Toribash for a year and a half. When I left, it was just after my peak and i was thrilled to kill at mods like Akidobigdojo, Judo, and, of course, Ninjutsu. And I loved Ninjutsu! I was constantly found in the Tourney with iemagazine, rapmaster (AdelphiaF), and many other awesome dudes who I really enjoyed playing with. But on the other side of a peak there is only downfall, and mine was full of rage. My grades in school were awful and I knew Toribash was my negative side so I quit.
But I'm back... And I couldn't be more upset with the look of the tourneys, specifically because there's no Ninjutsu anymore. "Why", I ask? And they answer that it favors defensive styles. iemagazine says "and Rk-mma doesn't?" He's right, but that's up to the players to have respect for the game and develop morals. When one shovels it's legal. When one lifts it's. When one runs its legal. When one kicks a wrist and leads by 200 points it's legal and it's also legal when that person stays away from his or her opponent, hits c and spaces out for 300 frames. But those who do this often do it because they aren't good enough to do otherwise and give themselves out of their own personal handicap. Everyone else doesn't do it because we have morals. So the moral of this story (no pun intended) is that respect for Toribash is what makes Ninjutsu, or Rk-mma for that matter, a great mod.
And my idea/request: simply bring back the Ninjutsu Tourney. Many people love it and many others will be enticed by its lovely sound and its 500/750 tc after which they will find the love for it others have found in the past. So you won't have a lack of participants.
I also wish there was an Akidobigdojo tourney while the topic is on the table.
Peace out
