I was reading through some older posts and there were a lot of mentions of the TP style being "nerfed". What does that mean?

It's a popular term that I think originated with MMORPGs, like World of Warcraft. It means to weaken, like how nerf versions of things are softer, or weaker.

The "nerf" that occurred happened many many years ago (2 decades+). It was when they introduced the ability for attacks to "slip" by parries. Before this there were so many with 15-0 to 40-6 type TPs running around. The nerf hit any warrior who parries but the TPs, who rely on it far more, were hit, or "nerfed", the worst.

I remember this but it wasn't called Nerfed back them. There was a fight between two TP scum in a mail in tourney. the fight went on for an insane length of times. I think around 76 minutes. Maybe a less. I knew it was long. The TPs stood there in plate armour while holding two large shields. No one attacked. I think the guy who won had it called by the arena master.

Then, you have missed the max-out 32, 000+ minute fights, all of which have been decided by damage. (We Consortiumites have five of 'em.)
