…concerning night buhurts.
– As for me, night battles allow to plunge deeper into the atmosphere which is not connected with the modern world. We’ll have 100% Middle Ages! Only at night you can feel that epoch sung in sagas, bylinas. Daylight spoils the atmosphere. At night you can not see all modern equipment, you have to identify your opponent by glare on his armor caused by torchlight. You can see only a line of opponents in front of you, hear only shouting and clanking of swords around. Cool feelings! A night buhurt is a chance to feel like a participant of a real battle, at night you get used to all that stuff easier as you do not see nothing that might distract you.
“You can see only a line of opponents in front of you, hear only shouting and clanking of swords around”
I am glad the organizers have finally decided to introduce this format of battles. I’m sure both participants and spectators will gain new experiences.
“Battle of the Nations” has always paid much attention to the safety of fighters, it has qualified marshals. I believe that we’ll instill this project (by joint efforts) into “Battle of the Nations.” I’m waiting for June!
