Umbrellas are COMPLETELY CHEAP. They're huge and round so you can practically cover yourself with them.

How is that any different than a wall? Are you now going to say that you can't dodge shots, or hide? Or maybe now you can't use water because it gets you wet. Come on blaze, rules need limits.

Look, BS (thats what I'm going to call you from now on). With an umbrella, even if two or three people attack, it's extremely easy to block their shots. It covers well over half your body, and I think is considered waterproof clothing, which is against the rules. If you don't agree and you still want to use the umbrella, well, that just shows how weak your team is--they need to be cheap to win.

EDIT: I found that a GREAT shield can be made out of just a metal garbage can lid. Its the perfect size, light, no work is required to make one, and the edges curve outwards away from the user so water is deflected effieciently.

Walls are definately NOT cheap like shields. If you say walls are cheap, then forts are too. Mobile shields are cheap because you can, well, move them. A wall is fair because it is already positioned and can't be moved. I don't even bother with shields. You don't need them if you have powerful weaponry. You can hit someone who is blocking with an umbrella, it takes a bit of skill that's all. The CF milltia could probably beat a team that uses umbrellas mainly because we use tactics and nay soaker-tags :P
