  1. As Brad charged towards the enemy mobile suit he saw the enemy sheathing his sword. brad immediately hit the airbrakes knowing that charging in now would be a very bad idea, and Brad was right because shortly after two warnings came up with a stiletto coming straight for the goufs neck along with another anchor. Brad spread the airbrakes on the wings to their max while brad also pushed his leg thrusters to max causing the Gouf to pull a back flip. As the head went back brad saw the stiletto and anchor pass by directly in front of the head passing by harmlessly but midway thru the flip his computer registered another incoming attack. 'crap what now!' brad kept one wing's airbrakes on max but opened the thruster up completely on the other wing forcing the suit to spin around, and even upside down brad realized why his computer was going crazy. Brad ejected his shield and threw it towards the peircer lock it was too close to shoot at this point but with the sudden impact of the shield the front of the lock was weighted down and it would be less maneuverable and unable to stop the next attack. Immediately as the piercer lock impacted the shield brads heat whip came cutting vertically from underneath the piercer lock slicing both the lock and shield in half. But unfortunately the peircer lock was too close and even with the shield being right in front of it the Gouf was scattered with debris from the explosion. Brad immediately looked at the diagnostic, since brad sliced vertically in the middle the arms and wings of the Gouf were spared from the blast but the legs were down 10% with a lag in reaction time, and the sensors were down 15% the mono-eye of the Gouf was fine but its clarity was weakened. But before Brad could start working on a way to work around the new handicap his computer registered 5 more new targets. Brad quickly raised his now free left arm and fired 10 shots from the 4-barrel gun to destroy the 5 incoming missiles. 'crap what next?!' but as soon as the explosion was over with brad retracted the heat whip and aimed both 4-barrel 'draupnir' beam guns towards the N Dagger N and fired 16 shots all together towards the shoulders of the N Dagger N, trying to figure out what other tricks the suit would have in its sleeves.. then brad hurriedly flipped the suit back right side up and opened up both thrusters and climbed up to a safe 1,500 ft above the ground. There with both guns ready to fire he stared at the N Dagger 'come on what’s next' he said inside the cockpit anxious for the next move.
  2. Brad stood there poised and positioned to attack, feeling a little bit better once he saw the two halves of the rocket anchor laying in the sand of the coast. Brad felt ready when the N Dagger N started to come closer until it stopped beside the tempest sword, brad watched realizing the mistake that he made for such a hollow victory. Then the Dagger sliced the Tempest in half and the beam of the sword gradually dimmed 'crap he is thorough, well at least were mostly even now.' the mono-eye of the Gouf ignited stared at the N Dagger N while Brad tried to figure out the best course of action now. Neither had any beam sword or saber just a couple of melee weapons that needed to make contact first to do anything the only difference was his was a sword while brads was a whip with heat and electrical features. They each have a shield and some kind of beam gun. Then brad began to narrow down the key items that needed to go. Like the shield. Then Brad decided what he must do. The Slayer whip shot out from the right forearm of the Gouf and the wings of the Gouf ignited faired out and ignited sending Brad 1,000 ft into the air. From there brad aimed his left arm beam gun underneath the shield and fired off eight shots towards the left side of the N Dagger N as he charged in towards the enemy suit with his left arm held back and the slayer whip extended behind the suit.
  3. well it could be cause I read most of destiny and only seen a few minutes of the actual show, or it could be because I kind of hated the later half of seed cause it seemed like it was getting kind of moody...and I never really say the later half anyway. but I say Rey mainly cause well like has already been stated Rey and Rau had potentially the same skill level. But one main thing I noticed was that Rey doesn’t go on as big of a Ranting Rave as Rau. In fact the only time I remember Rey ever really talking on the radio was when he was talking to Shinn trying to convince him to attack. Every other time Rey was pretty much to himself. And as for Rey Vs Kira in the final battle, well that whole battle was kind of interesting if anyone had happened to notice the little new type experience that Kira had while fighting Rey. and then it was a single statement that Kira said that made Rey kind of freeze and Kira jumped at the opportunity right then....I mean yea at that point things were already looking pretty bleak for Rey, but if Kira would have fought instead of preaching it wouldn’t have been that decisive of a battle. At least I think so.
  4. The following tutorial will help to explain to you the basic concept of reading guitar tab. Although it may seem complex, learning to read tab is quite simple, and you should find yourself reading tab easily in no time. Guitarists are a unique breed. Chances are, if you play guitar, you are either self-taught, or have taken a small number of lessons via a friend or guitar teacher. If you were a pianist, however, you almost assuredly would've learned to play the instrument through years of private study, which would include both music theory lessons, and heavy focus on sight reading. Nothing wrong with taking the more informal approach to learning music, but it does create some inherent problems when it comes to laborious duties like learning to read music. Learning to sight read takes a reasonable amount of work, without immediate benefit, and it is these sort of duties that self-taught musicians tend to avoid. It's never too late to learn to read music... if you want to get serious about a career in the music industry, it really is essential. However, guitarists have created their own method of music notation, guitar tablature which, while admittedly flawed, provides a simple and easy to read way of sharing music with other guitarists. Basics of Tab A tab staff for guitar has 6 horizontal lines, each one representing a string of the instrument. The bottom line of the staff represents your lowest "E" string, the second line from the bottom represents your "A" string, etc. Easy enough to read, right? Notice that there are numbers located smack dab in the middle of the lines (aka strings). The numbers simply represent the fret the tab is telling you to play. For example, in the illustration above, the tab is telling you to play the third string (third line) seventh fret. Note: When the number "0" is used in tablature, this indicates that the open string should be played. This is the concept of reading tab, at it's most basic. Now let's examine some of the more advanced aspects of reading tablature notation, including how to read chords in tab. This too is a relatively simple process. When the tab displays a series of numbers, stacked vertically, it is indicating to you that it wants you to play all these notes at the same time. Hence, the above tablature indicates that you should hold down the notes in an E major chord (second fret on fifth string, second fret on fourth string, first fret on third string) and strum all six strings at once. Often, tablature will additionally include the chord name (in this case E major) above the tablature staff, to help guitarists recognize the chord more quickly. The above tablature contains the exact same notes as the first E major chord presented on this page, but it will be played differently. In this situation, the notes in the chord will be played one at a time, rather than all together. "How fast should I play these notes?" you may ask. Good question... one which leads smoothly into: Fundamental Flaws of Guitar Tab Rhythmic notation is the biggest one. And it's a doozy of a flaw. Most guitar tab doesn't notate rhythm in any way, so if you haven't heard how the guitar part to the song you're playing goes, you have no way of knowing how long to hold each note. Some guitar tab does attempt to include rhythms, by putting stems on each number (to indicate quarter notes, eighth notes, etc), but most guitarists find this cumbersome to read. And besides, if you're going to include traditional rhythmic notation in guitar tab, why not just go the extra step and write the whole thing in standard notation? Another major problem with guitar tablature is only guitarists can read it. While standard notation is readable by those who play any instrument, tab is native to guitarists, so those who don't play guitar won't be able to comprehend it. This makes any sort of musical communication with a piano player, or other musician, very difficult. We've covered the basics of the pros and cons of guitar tablature. Now, we'll take a moment to talk about a few of the intricacies of tab - like how to read/write string bends, slides, and more. Here are some of the little details that you'll need to know to fully understand how to read guitar tablature. Be aware that some of these symbols vary, depending on who created the tablature. Hammer Ons & Pull Offs (Hammering On Tutorial) (Pulling Off Tutorial) It's most common to see the letter h representing a hammer on, located within the tablature between the original fret, and the hammered on fret (eg. 7h9) Similarly, the letter p is generally used to represent a pull off, also found in the same location within the tablature (eg. 9p7) Ocassionally, you'll see the ^ symbol used for either a hammer on or pull off (eg. 9^7) String Bends (String Bending Tutorial) String bends are often notated several different ways in guitar tablature. Often, a b is used, followed by the fret at which the original note should be bent to. For example, 7b9 would indicate that you should bend the seventh fret until it sounds like the ninth fret. Sometimes, this target note is included in brackets, like this: 7b(9). Occasionally, the b is omitted altogether: 7(9). An r is generally used to indicate a return of a bent note to it's unbent state. For example, 7b9r7 indicates a note on the seventh fret being bent up to the ninth fret, then returned to the seventh fret again. Slides (Sliding Tutorial) Generally, a / symbol is used to notate an ascending slide, while a \ symbol is used to notate a descending slide. So, 7/9\7 indicates sliding from the seventh fret, up to the ninth fret, and back to the seventh fret. If no number precedes the slide symbol, this indicates sliding from an indiscriminate fret. It is also not uncommon to see the letter s used to notate a slide. This is somewhat less concise, as when sliding from an indescriminate point (eg s9), it is unclear whether to slide up to the note, or down to the note. Miscellaneous Tab Notation The use of vibrato can be notated several different ways in tablature. Most often, the ~ symbol is used, often strung together to appear as ~~~. Sometimes, vibrato will be simply notated with a v. A string mute is almost always notated with an x. Several x's in a row, on adjacent strings, is used to notate a rake. Right hand tapping (for right handed guitarists) is generally notated in tab via a t, in conjunction with the pull off and hammer on techniques used when executing right handed tapping. Thus, 2h5t12p5p2 represents traditional tapping technique. When notating the tab for harmonics, the <> symbols are usually used, surrounding the fret which the harmonic is played at. This should give you all you need to get started reading and writing guitar tablature. Again, if you're serious about music, it highly advisable that you learn standard notation as well as tablature. The excellent Modern Method for Guitar will get you sight reading almost immediately.
  5. brad stood and gazed at the now identified N Dagger N. When its rock slid brad knew this battle was just starting. Brad quickly snatched out his tempest beam sword. When the enemy tore Through the smoke brad was ready for him turning to face the enemy suit. And as the enemy suit landed on the ground brad thrusted back away from him. Then brad saw the right arm beginning to reach out and the anchor fired out, Brad stabbed his sword into the dirt directly in the line of fire with the anchor. Then brad fired 4 more shots at the enemy suits chest as he continued to thrust backwards that way if the anchor got sliced by the sword it would lose momentum and crash into the sand before it reached brad.
  6. Brads alarms in his cockpit suddenly started to screaming with alarms of incoming fire. brad jumps and quickly looks around and spots the shot coming in from the slope. The jets ignite immediately as brad thrusts directly forward and the shot nails the dirt behind him. Then brad looks back up trying to see where the shot came from. After a quick scan he saw the green and gray outline of the enemy suit. It was standing with the sun to wards his back, brad shielded his eyes with one arm as he raised up his gouf's right arm and fired off 4 shots to wards the rocks below the enemy mobile suit hoping for either a rock slide or to at least to get the enemy suit to move so he could see the suit better.
  7. Number of Competitors: 2 Battlefield: coastal area (water, sand, rocks, forest) Restrictions on MS: no gundams. Battle Mode: N/A Referee: N/A Brad sits in the cockpit of his X2000 Gouf Ignited kneeling on the coast. The blue paint scheme reflects on the early morning tide. Brad sits quietly in the cockpit of the suit, checking the weapon systems, going over every last second preparations before the battle broke out. The cockpit was silent with nothing but the constant annoying buzz of the radar. Int he silent of the times Brad drifted off in his mind thinking. He is suddenly jolted out of his thoughts by a loud beep. he quickly looks to wards the radar but sees nothing..then he looks back at the systems check and it reads everything complete. Brad sat back and said "Alright everything done, only thing left is...well the opponent."
  8. Name: Brad Time: well absolutely from 8 P.M. - 12 A.M. Time Zone: GMT -6
  9. hey I'm brad and I was wondering if there was anyone that wanted a little warm up battle? I've been out of the game for a while and need a little stretch before i try anything in the coliseum. so if anyone is interrested just leave a message or contact me and we'll see what we can do
  10. lol now i feel like a dork. but oh well right now bon jovi (random selection thanks to youtube.) next is ozzy (just mainly mr. crowley or crazy train) and last is molly hatchet flirtin with disaster gosh you just gotta love youtube lol.
  11. yea i agree with fireminerva a bit to the extent that new weapons would be cool. but not necessary at this point in time. because as long as we have those kind of weapons we are always gonna have wars, and politically the better the weapons the quicker the war can be done, the less damages it will have, or in another sense the better weapons that one side has, the less antsy the other side will get to start the war. that was the whole point behind the atomic bombs. well that and to beat germany to the punch during WWII. But after we created the Nuclear bombs, everyone else felt threatened and just raced to build their own arms, and then when the soviet Union started moving their nuclear arms to Cuba, it was just a question of who was going to fire first. but luckily the leaders of the time in both US and Soviet Union felt it best to not do anything. um.....kinda got a bit off topic sorry. but anyway what i was trying to get at was if we got that out of control over a bomb. think what this whole place will go to when we start introducing weapons that we cant effectively defend against at this point in time. so while it would be beyond belief that the world would start producing gundam like weapons in real life and be one step closer to coming to most of our fantasies. our planet nor our current state in time could handle anything like that... oh yea hey ya'll I'm brad, sorry I'm kinda late for the discussion i want to try to become a bit more active round here since i have lost everything that i usually do....um anyone wouldn't be up for a little mock battle huh? just so i can get back into the game since i haven't really RP ed in like a year or so.
  12. Name: Brad Sera Strass Arena Nickname: Jack the Ripper Team: N/A Age: 25 Gender: Male Race: Coordinator Combat Style: Melee Aggressive, Midrange Defensive Preferred MWs: Blaze Zaku Phantom, GuAIZ, Gouf Ignited, ∞ Justice Gundam, Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L Personality/History: Brad believes that in a contest of skill and honor the only way to fight is melee. Unfortunately Brad knows that not all pilots share the same believes as him so brad also works to use midrange and Longrange weapons as a defensive weapon instead of the usual offensive that their designed for. He got his nickname from his own belief and first combat experience when he lost all weapons aside from two combat knives. Brad's competition was just as inexperienced as Himself in a all bares duel and became too confident after brad lost the main weapons, and began to toy with Brad. it was then that brad used the combat knives to his opponents surprise and immobilized the enemy unit. But Brad didn't stop there, with the sudden adrenaline rush from staring at defeat and the sudden turn of the tables, brad comminced to completely dismantle the enemy unit until the suit so torn beyond any recognition of its former image.
  13. Thank you for the approval. I promise i will work on my typing, i just hope i can get it up to standards before i get out of pilot academy, when ever i get into it that is. now with that out of the way if it is alright. I would like to apply for Zaft

    Re: Hello All

    yea i was the only person defending constantine, then blue draconian was jumped while i was stuck in the middle of another battle like constantine. after that it was pretty much over with.

    Re: Hello All

    Oh! really i remember you. But which battle were we in? I remember it was when Zeon was down to only a few members and i was fighting to get a new admiral so we could use the funds again.
