So there's a chance the shitty kid with a bad attitude at my larp thinks I'm a cheater now. Long story short, there's a really shitty, obnoxious kid who plays at my larp on saturdays. he has no idea what's going on at any given time, is either incapable or unwilling to listen when we try to explain anything to him, is an active hindrance on the field, and can't wrap his head around the general culture of humility, trust, and honor that all boffer fighting games run on. Today, during a game, he hit me in the head on his way to my shoulder because he's using this enormous spear that he doesn't know how to control at all. I called "head" and kept fighting. He went to go complain to the referee and got told "no, that was an illegal shot, they killed you, go sit until you respawn." Which. Idk how much he understood. But it's in the basic rules of play that if you get hit in the head, any shot continuing from that hit doesn't count, and he clipped me good on the ear. Later in the same game, end of the game, actually, it was down to the two of us. I had lost a leg and was on my knees. He was at full and had just come back alive. If I killed him I won the game, if he killed me the game continued until one person killed the entire field on one life. He hit me in the dead leg, which, again, per rules of play doesn't count, and I called it and continued in to fight him. He ran away to go complain to the referee again and got told tough titties, read the rule book. Then he and his family left in a huff, and I won the game by default. Which. Doesn't really feel great? It also doesn't feel great that a kid who has no idea what's going on has somehow interpreted "Knowing the rules" as "cheating."
