Re: Tournament Unwritten rules, strats.
Off the field hints - have someone RUN to get aired up between games. Sometimes, especially towards the end of the tournament, they're running people through like crazy and you won't have time to run to the air station and get back in time to chrono.
Have someone filling pods (parent, brother, fan, whoever...) in between games.
Clean your gear, uniforms, pods, gun, everything BEFORE you guys stand around talking about what happened on the field in the game. Then, when everyone's done cleaning up and getting ready for the next game, discuss the last one you played BEFORE you talk to your girlfriends, mom, whoever...
Watch your opponents play. Study them. Where do they go all the time? Who goes for the flag everytime? Who stays in what bunker every time?
Bonusballing is tricky. Overshooting is a penalty, but it's rarely called in the tournaments I play in. If you shoot too much, you risk getting it from every other team that day and getting a rep. Not shooting enough could cause the players to wipe, play on, cheat, so forth. When I player has his head ducked, hand in the air and is leaving the field with his gun up or down, then you can lighten up on him, but watch him!
I have others, but school's about to start!
