ChocLinux writes "Gamers that take part in the Streetwars watergun assassination tournament in London could face arrest if they stalk their target in the tube. CNET has spoken to one gamer who has taken part in the tournament and disagreed that waterguns could be mistaken for firearms, as all contestants are using brightly-coloured super-soakers. He admitted that he narrowly missed being eliminated. 'Some guy tried to get me outside work, but he missed and fell off his bike,' he said. If the game isn't over by midnight on August 15, the remaining contestants will take part in a one week sudden death tournament." From the article: "You can hunt your target down any way you see fit; you can pose as a delivery person and jack them when they open the door, disguise yourself and take them out on the street, etc. If you are successful in your assassination attempt, the person you killed will give you their envelope and the person they were supposed to kill becomes your new target."
