This might be a good topic to raise the question of what kind of soaker rounds do you want to support in future community wars? As in, which classes do we want to have rounds for specifically?
In the past, we have distinguished rounds that allow primaries (anything goes), medium primaries (with restrictions on size or output), air pressure only (anything goes or with similar restrictions), and pistols (with restrictions on size). These types of rounds heavily influence what kinds of guns people choose to keep in their arsenals, so I think it is important to discuss.
Personally, I think we should have the following standard four:
. Primaries (Anything Goes)
. Medium Primaries
. Air Pressure Only (Anything AP Goes)
. Medium Air Pressure Only
I would drop pistol class rounds. I would have said drop medium AP only as well, but this week's duel tests showed that you can definitely have fun, intense battles with medium AP guns.
For such purposes, a "medium" primary would include the 1000/1200/2100/Flash Flood and down. Given the ranges and overall performance, I would include the Gorgon, Orca, Tiger Shark, XP 250, XXP 275, PPB, SS 200, etc in this class. While fairly large, they are definitely a cut below the things we would be using in primary rounds (2000, 2500, 1500, 2700, SS 300, etc).
A "medium" AP gun would be like the Colossus, XP 150, XP 310, MD 6000, Python, etc. Gorgons, XP 250s, XXP 275s, etc would not count here.
Standardizing these things would help lots of the frequent posters plan their arsenals and keep soakers relevant beyond the usual top level primaries. That's one thing I really like about the community wars thus far, we have created reasons to keep medium CPS and medium AP guns that would ordinarily not get used often.
