Specific Details and Rules:

One of the most common forms of Team water fights. Basically, a group of Players are divided into two or more opposing Teams. Each Team attempts to soak the members of the other team while trying to remain dry. Unlike Team: Soakfest, Player and/or Team scores / kills attained are tracked; the Team with the most points at the end of the game is declared winner. If Players are only allowed a finite number of lives, the winning Team may also be determined by the elimination of all other Team Players.

If two or more Teams are tied in score for first place, a Sudden Death round should be played between the top Teams to decide the ultimate winning Team. The nice thing about Team wars is that one can practice using various formations to attack or defend against the opposition. Also, it is always nice to share in a combined soak.

Good Team games allow one to make the most of one's knowledge of strategies, setting traps, ambushing, etc.
