Car Soccer (Demolition Derby)
« on: November 24, 2013, 06:19:22 am »
Hey all, had some interest about the Car Soccer event from a few people so I thought I'd get a thread going about it. Here's a rundown..

There's that easter egg of a giant ball on top of a shack in the middle of the map in the vinewood hills. Someone with a sandking could get the ball into the back of the truck and take it to a decided upon location. Once there, fellow crew members will have placed boundaries of some sort (such as cars, trailers, etc.) in order to create a "soccer field" and keep the ball from rolling out of the boundaries. At each end of the field, there will be an empty space two vehicles wide which denote the goals (potentially wider depending on how difficult it is to score). More cars can be placed beyond the goals in order for the ball to not roll on forever.

From then we can decide on teams depending on who is playing. The amount of players involved will determine the field size. Generally, it will probably be best to keep games at a maximum of about 6 people. This way the field will not need to be made enormous. This could be every man for them self, teams of two, and teams of three.

To make things as easy as possible, teams may need to be determined before the field and game are set up, so that each team has a "team color" of cars, in order to keep teammates in order. After each goal, the ball will be placed at midfield. Once at midfield, a 3..2..1 group countdown will tell you when the ball is live again. The only rules are that you remain on the playing field unless retrieving the ball, you remain in your vehicle at all times unless retrieving the ball, and are not allowed to use weapons. There will also need to be a certain limitation on eligible vehicles, or at least an agreement on what cars are allowed before the start of the game. Perhaps sticking to a certain class so that everybody is mostly equal. First team to a certain amount of goals wins.

Essentially we're combining a demolition-derby with soccer.

If anyone is interested in this event, I'd like you to do a couple things:
First, try to scout out potential locations that a field can be made. Preferably, a very flat surface, which may have some natural landmarks that can make boundaries, meaning less time placing vehicles in order to make the boundaries.
Second, if you have any thoughts on rules which should be added or subtracted, put them here so that all that are interested can decide on the set of rules together. We'll set the rules on the basis of majority.
Third, if you are interested in playing, and have found a potential location, try to form a strategy in which we would set the field up. How many cars would be needed, how many people that would be needed, ease of ball transportation, etc.
And Lastly, If you are interested in playing, let us know right here!

Place your thoughts here and let me know if you are interested in playing. I will be heading back home for the week and do not have the most reliable of internet, so the coming week (Sun Nov 24th through Sun Dec 1st) will be dedicated to scouting, planning, and general game setup. Once I'm back at school we can "get the ball rolling". See what I did there?  ;)

Cheers guys!

Any luck on finding a field to play on? Also, if anyone else is interested, leave a post in here. We'll try to get a game together within the next couple of weeks.
