    Nope, not that I can recall, didn't really see a need in barriers and back then there weren't many "barrier" techniques, so nobody really specialized in barriers.

    Re: NB's Greatest RP-Fighters.

    To be honest most time i hear about storm on naruto base darui name usually comes up so i think he must be good at it to say the least, though i dont think arrogance and bragging would make me believe it more .After having studied and examined all the evidence[Joke] i think a major difference between the old role players and fathers of rp and this current one skill aside is their customs lol which are over powered and over bad ass i don't think now any gates variations are accepted and if they are it would be restricted but then you have technique which got approved given the user speed of the 3rd gate and more. Also in the battle test, in the old days to take a nagato test you would only be fighting one person and proof of this is when crutch too his nagato test which was conducted my izuna , who used only izuna with Ms i think ,however now you have naruto with sage mode and nine tails mode and itachi with ms thus the test difficulty level is increased.Though i wish i registered back then lol when things were not that hard and they role play had real passion and talent in it nothing compared to today.

    Yeah, you wish lol...but taking off some of these heavy restrictions would do wonders for this rp.
    People lose interest fast these days and i see the potential this rp has with few adjustments which is why i haven´t given up yet.:D

    For one, it's not just the customs that separates most of the old-gen members from new gen. Even members like Izuna, Roku, Zanji, etc. who have ridiculous customs could still easily handle more than most of the current RPers without using their customs.

    Second, you don't seriously think that the tests are now harder than they were back then, do you? Because they weren't. You're only telling half of the story by saying that you only fight one person. The other half is that that one person is the bio that you want to have while you're using a normal, customless bio. While that may be easy for Oonoki (who wasn't around then anyway btw), good luck fighting against a Nagato bio without access to anything really all that powerful. I'd much rather fight as Nagato against two people who he can easily handle against a tester who is actually trying to give you some leeway to show yours skill as opposed to fight against an experienced member using a Nagato bio who on the first turn goes all out to try and kill you. That's the main thing that makes the tests harder back then than they are now. The tester was seriously just going for the one move KO every turn. The Crutch using Nagato against Izuna with MS wasn't in the "old days" lol, that was. That was like a year ago when they were first trying to change the testing system if I remember. The actual old tests, like two years and before, were ridiculous. Not to mention the written test questions that barely even made any sense. ~_~

    Don´t agree with that, power aside, skill and talent is something any newbie can have + you don´t know too much about the current gen to make that claim. When we come back to the basics, suddently the game changes, it´s all about how you think and use your techniques, like a game of chess and people like the ones you mentioned are most probably very used to their customs and op techniques that most their fights don´t require much strategy or planning so when we go back to the basics in a situation like that logically they´d be at disadvantage, now i haven´t seen much of Izuna, Roku and Zanji so i won´t say your wrong but you shouldn´t underestimate the current gen.

    And on what basis, exactly, do you say that I don't know enough about the current generation to make that claim? O.o I've read plenty of fights, seen the general amount of the RP as it is currently. Yes, there are a lot of new generation members who stand out, and no I'm not saying that all of the old generation members can pwn all of the new generation members. And the rest of your post really has little to do with what I said to be honest lol. And based on what you said in the last few sentences about how they just depended on customs and didn't require much thought, I can tell that you know very little about many old generation members. I didn't underestimate the current gen; you seem to have read my post as using generalizing statements saying that the old members blow the new members out of the water.

    For one, i know your an old member who´s been back for a couple of months, regained sensei position not too long ago and this summer has not been so active rp wise.
    Also, the rest of my post was putting things into perspective from an objective stand-point which i hoped you would understand.
    Told you already i don´t know much about old gen but that they could "easily beat more then most of the current gen without customs"? Don´t think so.

    I'm pretty sure that a couple of months (been back since May more or less) is more than enough time to know what's going on. O.o Barely takes a week or two actually. And for the record, I was only inactive for a few months in the first place so yeah... not really much of a basis for your statement.

    Yeah, I understood the rest of your post, but it simply wasn't very relevant to what I said. The whole "customs aren't everything and skill isn't important" part didn't really have anything to do with... anything; I never said anything that would have been in disagreement with that.

    I still didn't say that all of the old gen could do that to all of the new gen, I'm specifically talking about the more or less, hum, top of the old gen. But I suppose it's a matter of opinion.

    Well as i said, rp has not been too active this summer(wasn´t refering to you in that post).
    It was relevant and i never said anything of the like "customs aren´t everything etc" read again because you say you understand but you don´t lol.
    I was talking about "them" aswell and that is your opinion, let´s agree to disagree.

    ^ This is the part that I'm talking about. Basically what this boils down is saying that when you remove customs and just have normal techniques, it's a game of strategy. A game that the old gen members would be at a disadvantage at. If that's not what you were saying then this is badly worded. In other words basically saying that customs aren't everything and that strategy is what matters and hence my statement (the one that you underlined) is wrong, right? That's the part that I'm saying is rather irrelevant. Mainly because it's not like you really said anything there that wasn't already known and that really... hm... argued against anything that I said.

    Re: NB's Greatest RP-Fighters.

    I agree with you up to some extent , but in my opinion for what ever it is worth ,customs aside any average role player would have a better chance of fighting you guys and maybe just maybe can win though that is some discussion for another day. I belive and would like to say that role playing back then was much more easy than today in several aspects such as training , jutsu, and power ups. There is a theory which I would say which is the smaller the community the more satisfied role players are ,while the bigger the more unsatisfied they are, I have talked with many old members who admitted that the rules there were not as tough as now for example back then the restrictions on custom marks were few or non existent[2008-2009] why do you think most of the old members have eight gates ,sage modes, jinchuriki bios or 3t sharingan where as very few new gen members who have stayed more than a year on the site do not there is a saying give a man a block and he makes a house so I feel this is the basis on the role playing system and how it grew.

    Agreed with it being easier in terms of getting customs and SOME powerups (it was kind of like, if you were someone's friend you would be more likely to get this so it was easy for some people I suppose), but training was pretty much the same as it is now. There were less members but senseis were more likely to just not train you because they didn't feel like it. So again, it depended on whether or not you were good friends with senseis or not how quickly you got training.

    Yes but you´re just confusing things, you interpreted what i said as "customs aren´t everything and strategy is what matters" but customs was never in the equation in the first place, thats the whole point of this talk.
    You made an assumption out of nowhere and forgot what we were even talking about, lol.
    But yeah, that right there makes all the difference and how i see it.
    In this situation, customs aren´t apart of the subject but you´re right about strategy being an important thing which according to me will be a little hard to adapt to if you´re one who fights in terms of more power but that is the assumption i made, i´m not saying i´m right but that´s how i see it.
    This is pointless, as i said let´s agree to disagree.

    , just for the record, the reason why I surmised your statement like that ("customs aren't everything") was because I assumed you knew what part I was talking about so I didn't have to reiterate everything that you said. But whatever, ya kinda blew this part of the conversation out of proportion. And yeah, agree to disagree lol. Don't get me wrong, I see what you're saying but... you would have to see some of those members actually battle to really know what I mean.
