A note on the teams:

We will be split into 8 teams of (hopefully) 8-10 players. As we get closer to the actual event, probably May/June sometime, I will be hand selecting captains for each squad and we may opt to do a draft.

One other note - all credit for this team format goes to @BaxterMSP and his intent for NSS2. That sadly did not come to fruition due to logistic challenges, but we’re resurrecting it for NSS4. With my own twist, of course. He and I tend to trade sarcastic barbs on the board here, but with all sincerity we would not have the Shootout without him. :clap::clap::clap:

Just make sure they all know I’m a prick, please

With all due respect, I don’t think I need to tell anyone.

We’ve all seen this before:

Nanksi extends an olive branch to a friend (maybe foe?) in an earnest moment

Bax - devoid of normal human emotions will almost certainly use this as an opportunity to shit post by accepting said olive branch and breaking it over his knee

Despite knowing how this one ends, can’t wait to see it unfold

I consider Bax a friend. Whether that’s reciprocated or not is a separate question entirely.

Hold up, I was being sincere. You decided to wander in here with kerosene and a match.

(Tron voice) Lot of different directions I can go here…Gilly gif, flamethrower gif, etc

But ultimately - we’re kindred spirits, and I just don’t want to see you get hurt

Oh Bax - it’s a compliment of your shit posting and internet message board prowess! That’s all.

I’m a big boy, I can take it. He knows not to insult my mom or we’ll have another big money duel.

I suppose money would be the only thing to play for since I already won her affection

I hate it when mom and dad fight
