Thread: Musket Wet Wedge Charge??!?!?!?!

  1. #1

    Default

    I've heard about the infamous Wet musket wedge charge... Is Vanya the Impaler the conductor of this symphony of destruction? What does it look like? Is this an urban myth? Determined to find out the truth, myself and 2 friends set out to the woods to find out the truth about the Wet Wedgie Musket Overly Descriptive Charge of Death... What we found was horror indescribable...
    Seriously, does anybody have a recording of this?

    Well, in MI muskets still shoot in rain, even if their destructive force is reduced to a strategic peanut.

    Some use them on wedge...

    Gah!

    You fools!

    It is the wet arquibusiers who bring death, destruction and other symphonies.

    Leave the muskets in three ranks to fire while the real men with the arqs do the fighting!

    Gah!

    Horror indescribable indeed. My eyes have seen such things...

    "And lo, the world trembled as the hosts of Arques assembled for their grim duty. In fiercesome wedges, rank upon rank stood firm in the blustery gail. With a terrible roar the masses charged, their faces lit like banshees by lightening flashes. In a flood of steel they set upon their doomed prey leaving a wake of carnage in their path..."

    It is true, no man can stand against the wet arque wedgie...
    Retreat? Hell, we're just attacking in a different direction...

    Krast is right!

    The wet Arque wedgie is not an urban myth and does exist!

    In fact, I have personally witnessed a wet wedgie take on and take out a Heavy Cav unit by their lonesome. That Heavy Cav unit was owned by none other than AMP! This took place on Magyarorsag shortly after the MI 1.1 release.

    I am infamous for my wet musket wedge army!!! It ranks right up there with my stinky ashi army! As my musket wedgies beat down the enemy they pull out their water pistols and give them a final coup de grace! OH THE HUMILIATION!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA Oh . . . sorry . . . . kinda lost myself there for a minute!!
    I see Obake still haunts these hallowed halls. He is like a bad cold . . Once you think he is gone, he comes back even worse than before!! LOL
    When Medieval Total War comes along (which I can buy now since EA is not the publisher!!) I will return, as will most of my UGLY comrades and then everyone will be able to enjoy our company once again and tire themselves out chasing our men off of the field of battle! BEWARE!!
    I hope you guys are having fun and I cannot wait for the new game to come out. I love the Medieval setting and I am sure I will be saying "Nee" to many a brave knight.

    bah! wet wedgies are nothing! if you want to really confound and befuddle your enemy, send your geishas at him in tactical battle. while the .geishax. cutscene keeps him busy, overrun him with miniature kensai slashing away at his underparts.

    Quick question since we're talking about wet wedgie units. In WE do xbow men also become weak as mashed up potatoes like musk and arqu's do in STW?

    ELLLLLLMMMMOOOO!

    Where the hell have you been?! I need to take a trip down south ways and destroy your copy of Return to Castle Wolfenstein or whatever it is you are playing now!

    Why won't you play MI anymore? EA sux, but the new patch (1.02) that Yuuki worked on is excellent. Like old shoggy ++++.

    Your STW Nike contract is expiring and they won't re-up with a big signing bonus unless you return to the league ala Jordan

    Mitch,

    A bunch of guys worked on the v1.02, not just me. I don't want to take all the blame.

    Elmarko,

    You worn out Ghost Recon yet? I guess you have Medal of Honor to get through now. We're down to two guys and sometime only one in the evening who can host big WE/MI games. Krast is so sad about this that he GAH!!'s soup all over the place and himself.

    X-bow men are still positively deadly.

    If I'm a cold old man that would make you Ebola!

    Unlike some others, I won't have to re-install the game. It still holds a special place in my heart (wherever I put THAT). I'll be there in all my Ugly splendor on Saturday. I'm sure that there will be others as well. It's going to be an Ugly night!

    Mitch, he's got the Nike contract for fastest to die over at Ghost Recon (actually the title belongs to me, but he lied and said it was him). He's actually also in the running to replace George Foreman as spokesman for the Lean Mean Grilling Machine (or whatever the hell it's called). They said that they needed a nice counterpoint to George, and who better than a short, ugly, pop-bottle glasses wearin' hillbilly with a jug of shine slung over one shoulder and a sniper rifle over the other.

    There is no game but Shogun. Everything else is irrelevant. To leave Shogun for a lesser game is heresy.

    Does anyone every really leave Slice old friend?

    I believe that some of the First Ones are just taking a break until the new call to battle is sounded! There are other dimensions that need conquering before we return home.

    I look forward to the Medieval version of the Wet Gun Wedgie!
