Problem[edit]

Shouldn't the damage be divided by 3 or multiplied by 1/3? 3 times damage with a blunted weapon seems a bit much. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.243.22.32 (talkcontribs) 16:37, 19 June 2006 (MST). Please sign your posts!

I think that it was accidentally written that way. It is referenced later to be divided by 3. Good idea however, it needs some fleshing out though. A lot of the rules are unclear. The steps to jousting should be in a logical order. As well, perhaps there should be clear sections on scoring (rather than have information scattered about the article), rewards, penalties, types of jousting (tournament, honor related matter, duel), and also a sample joust.

First off, where does it say the modified damage wrong? Second, feel free to embellish on this, I would love it if you would. --Green Dragon 16:06, 5 January 2007 (MST)
Embellished. Let me know what you think :-) Aarnott 11:09, 8 January 2007 (MST)
Wow, it looks quite a bit better. This is much more comprehensive and thought out. Good job. Also, I really like all the different kinds of matches you added in, such as the Friendly Challenge, Elimination Tournament, Grand Tournament, etc. This is much better, thanks for doing that. --Green Dragon 16:32, 8 January 2007 (MST)

Points[edit]

Isn't the historical system for scoring:

  • One point for breaking the lance on the oponent's shield.
  • Two points for breaking the lance on the oponent's head (or torso or something?)
  • Three points for unhorsing the oponent.

I don't know honestly. I just made stuff up. If you have any ideas on how to improve this, please feel free to edit it :). --Aarnott 19:52, 9 December 2007 (MST)
Ok. Thanks. --Sam Kay 10:04, 10 December 2007 (MST)
Ah, got the scoring wrong. It is:
  • One lance for breaking the lance from the waist to the neck.
  • Two lances for breaking the lance on the head.
  • Three lances for unhorsing the oponent.

looks good, thanks for adding that. --Green Dragon 23:43, 24 December 2007 (MST)

Stacking Points[edit]

It mentions that points earned do not stack. This in my mind unbalances jousting as in using this method the maximum number of points you can earn is 3. So really whoever has a better reputation automatically wins the joust. Also, if the points earned don't stack and there are multiple rounds, which round do you use for your points? Do you use the first points you score or last? --Vrail 00:13, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Dueling[edit]

For dueling it says that the match lasts until the opponent is unhorsed but the combat continues on foot. --Grim914 22:57, 21 November 2010 (MST)
