#246050 Chano 3 - Now Recapping!

Posted by Demon Lord on 07 August 2009 - 10:26 PM in Nerf Wars

Pass up the chance to humiliate/get humiliated by Ice Nine and Zorn? Hell, no! I'll be there and most likely with friends as well.



#248688 Chicago Beatdown 3 - Recapping Now

Posted by Demon Lord on 26 August 2009 - 04:26 PM in Nerf Wars

Put me down as a maybe for this one. No weddings or anything to worry about this time.



#248749 Chicago Beatdown 3 - Recapping Now

Posted by Demon Lord on 27 August 2009 - 03:36 AM in Nerf Wars

Quick question, melee weapons: what are the rules?



#249561 Chano 2.5 - Now Recapping

Posted by Demon Lord on 04 September 2009 - 02:07 PM in Nerf Wars

Work is unpredictable, but I'm going to try and make it up there. Is Bullwinkle AKA The diddle Gun banned?



#250380 Chicago Beatdown 3 - Recapping Now

Posted by Demon Lord on 13 September 2009 - 10:54 PM in Nerf Wars

Had much fun, met several new people. Good times were had. Proved that I had earned the name Demon Lord a long time ago. More when I'm not so sore.



#250578 Chicago Beatdown 3 - Recapping Now

Posted by Demon Lord on 16 September 2009 - 03:22 AM in Nerf Wars

I had a lot of fun at this war, even before hand when we had such a small groupit was a nice change from the large wars that I have attended in the past.

Pros:
- Nerfing with the Chicago Mob again
- Defend the Core was more fun then I had ever expected
- No CTF that I played in (overplayed in my book)
- Seeing Kane's creative homemade NERF guns
- Having my Longshot's new ammo actually work...mostly
- Having my Bow n' Arrow function
- Hanging out with a bunch of awesome people
- Seeing a DtC score with a balloon sword...no joke!

Cons:
- Not having back up plans for when the large group of kids wanted to play
- Having to be a douche to kids who had no respect for anyone



#251489 Chano 3 - Now Recapping!

Posted by Demon Lord on 24 September 2009 - 02:16 AM in Nerf Wars

Turns out that's my boss's anniversity weekend with his wife. I'll know for sure if I can make it about a weekend before, so change me to a maybe.



#253118 Chano 2.5 - Now Recapping

Posted by Demon Lord on 10 October 2009 - 02:48 AM in Nerf Wars

I'll be there.



#253513 Chano 2.5 - Now Recapping

Posted by Demon Lord on 14 October 2009 - 02:49 AM in Nerf Wars

The good, the bad, and the WTF?!
- Having 3 guns break on me
- TONS of bird crap
- Freezing weather
- Repairing all but one gun and having them work
- Actually getting a decent amount of sleep the night before
- Having last second mods work for me
- Seeing and enjoying the DtC setup Ryan has
- Raider RUSH! Gotta love the hail of darts!
- The worlds shortest CTF game...I'm still not over how fast that was over with
- Just having a ton of fun the whole day

Cya at CHANO 3!



#254113 Chano 3 - Now Recapping!

Posted by Demon Lord on 20 October 2009 - 06:59 PM in Nerf Wars

Highlights and memorable moments:
- First kill dart landing in Gecko's jacket pocket
- Watching Merzlin faceplant after slipping trying to tag me, easiest barrel tap ever
- DtC, still one of my favorite team games; even the unfair one was awesome
- Berserker charging the first DtC round with a Vulcan, complete with screaming
- Getting shot in the head with my own Bow n' Arrow (by my own roommate) during previous charge and as a result slipping
- Having my Bow n' Arrow break...AGAIN. I think its tradition.
- Meeting Carbon and Julian, both great people and awesome nerfers
- Seeing the advantage of the SNAP bows..I need to build one
- Talking with both awesome cops and then jackass cop
- Seeing Gecko KICK ASS WITH A BLOW GUN
- Gecko is an awesome nerfer despite his age
- Kinda possibly ending my rivalry with Zeke, we got drafted onto the same teams several times
- Getting hit in the funny bone and having my left hand paralyzed, thus being unable to participate in the last round of DtC

The last CHANO was the bloodiest CHANO to date, this was the CHANO of odd hits.
See you at the next war!



#254295 Recapping Chicago Beatdown 4

Posted by Demon Lord on 22 October 2009 - 01:44 AM in Nerf Wars

Put me down as a maybe, plus guests



#254367 Recapping Chicago Beatdown 4

Posted by Demon Lord on 22 October 2009 - 10:26 PM in Nerf Wars

Wasn't CHANO 2.5 35 degrees with a 5 degree windchill?



#255567 Recapping Chicago Beatdown 4

Posted by Demon Lord on 07 November 2009 - 02:40 AM in Nerf Wars

/quote
- Hopper Clips are officially banned
- Turreted guns with more than 4 barrels that shoot 90ft+
/quote

That's new. Trying to balance things out I assume?



#255568 Hitting The Target

Posted by Demon Lord on 07 November 2009 - 02:44 AM in General Nerf

That doesn't appear to be a dart curve, just good timing.
Now if the shot happened outside with high winds, I'd say the dart got an external push to curve the dart.



#255720 Recapping Chicago Beatdown 4

Posted by Demon Lord on 08 November 2009 - 06:35 PM in Nerf Wars

I'll be there.



#256442 Recapping Chicago Beatdown 4

Posted by Demon Lord on 16 November 2009 - 03:18 AM in Nerf Wars

Time for my opinion:
The U3 has some nice guns. I have some nice guns. Ace has the best Vulcan I've ever seen (It actually works!). My roommate Shorts has a 4B with an extended tank to try and outrange +bows. What's the main difference? Skill. I'm no good at long range, Shorts has issues at mid-range, Ace dominates at dart storms and the U3 are just good. The guns help don't get me wrong but when you know what you are doing modding wise and spend hours on a gun the finished product will be good and awesome. Just like Short's 4B. He spent hours building that MASS system and fixing leaks and as a result he's got something that will stand up to everything on the field. I'm more than happy to run around and act as a target for someone who wants to get practice at hitting moving targets, but no one has asked yet.
Here's the deal with welts. Its the domes on the stefans. Simple physics states that the pressure forced on the dart when fired will be concentrated on the smallest point on the dart head. In the case of a dome the point is infinitely small thus causing damage more akin to a bullet than a padded round. The hot glue when dried is a similar consistency to a police non lethal round than something that shouldn't hurt as badly as they do. Slug darts and darts with no domes on the otherhand distribute all of that force on the flat diameter of the whole dart, thus hurting less if at all. That's the problem with the guns, not the gun itself but the dart.
Switching to Slug darts or flat tip darts that are felt tipped but weighted differently we'd be able to eliminate most of the injuries. As for the headshots/nutshots, they are going to happen, just like in any sport. The wind will catch the darts or someone's aim will not be true, etc. They happen. If people are worried wear cups and paintball mask.
Overall I had fun that day hope to repeat it during the winter. I just hope it continues.

EDIT: To address Falcon, I was the one using the RSCB'd Bow N' Arrow. It's broken in all three wars I've been to. I have even MORE major reinforcement to do on the handle, which snapped again on me.

To recap the highlights:
- 2 core DtC is awesomely fun
- Teamwork was at an all time high in the team rounds
- Decimating the pistol rounds
- Memorable CtF rounds, those electronic flags are cool!
- My Bow N' Arrow breaking...AGAIN
- My brand new Nitefinder working well
- Crashes and spills galore!
- Despite the perceived unfairness of the U3, still having tons of fun



#260248 Cataclysm - Chicagoland War

Posted by Demon Lord on 31 December 2009 - 03:18 AM in Nerf Wars

I'm there, with crew.



#263379 Longstrike Cs-6 Internals And Stock Mod [pics]

Posted by Demon Lord on 27 January 2010 - 03:20 AM in Modifications

I hate to be the one to toss this into the mix, but it looks like we have a recased Recon in the Longstrike. Plenty of room to toss in new internals, but its still a repackaged Recon.



#264301 Relative Strength Of The Max Shot Spring

Posted by Demon Lord on 04 February 2010 - 01:07 AM in Modifications

Just keep in mind the MaxShot's tendency toward violent outbursts with the original spring...

I am cognizant of this issue, but feel reckless enough to ignore it.

Please take pictures when it turns into a million pieces.

I see something similar to what happened with your manta ray happening to this MaxShot..

Wear a paintball mask while taking a video of it firing. I want to see that thing go BOOM!



#265014 The Easiest Telescoping Longshot Barrel Ever.

Posted by Demon Lord on 10 February 2010 - 10:03 PM in Modifications

Here's my question, How did you get the "bolt tooth" ( the thing aligns the dart with the barrel) to slide over the 9/16th brass? I've tried this before in the past and have run into this problem repeatedly.



#265035 The Easiest Telescoping Longshot Barrel Ever.

Posted by Demon Lord on 11 February 2010 - 02:15 AM in Modifications

What I'm refering to is the narrow "tooth" that extends out of the front of the bolt nub. That "tooth" keeps stopping at the brass and will not allow a barrel extension on there.



#269243 Canceled

Posted by Demon Lord on 15 March 2010 - 08:19 PM in Nerf Wars

I'm a maybe. With going back to college that date is too far off for me to be sure or not if I can make it.



#269658 Mano 1.5 - Battle For Milwaukee

Posted by Demon Lord on 19 March 2010 - 08:33 PM in Nerf Wars

If anyone wants a change of pace (and since Ryan currently fails) I have buckets marked for TPB and the required painted balls needed to play which I will be bringing.



#270169 March 2010 Minnesota War

Posted by Demon Lord on 24 March 2010 - 01:29 AM in Nerf Wars

I have the TPB stuff, and I will bring it...assuming other surprises don't take up that much room in my car.



#270835 March 2010 Minnesota War

Posted by Demon Lord on 31 March 2010 - 02:03 AM in Nerf Wars

+ Worth the trip
+ Carpe Testis is an awesome game type
+ Beautiful Snowman seize in the first round of Capture the Snowman
- 6 hour drive
+ Unique DtC round with the hill
+ Newell park is awesome
+ HAMPS are fun to use
- Still not my favorite to use currently
- Monolith not being used
+ Getting parts to finish the Monolith
+ Meeting a ton of cool people
+ Directing EVERYONE during team games

I can definitely say this was one of my favorite wars so far and will be attending more in the future.



#271264 Homemades Picture Thread

Posted by Demon Lord on 03 April 2010 - 11:46 PM in Homemades

Acquired at the March 27th MN war, now it is completed. 5 ft hopper clips with 4ft long PETG barrels on a double action OMFGHAMP piston system. This thing kicks ass.



#272613 Mano 2 - Burrito Explosion

Posted by Demon Lord on 18 April 2010 - 06:58 PM in Nerf Wars

Pending something horrible happening, I'll be there. With a burrito. To explode.



#272637 Cataclysm - Chicagoland War

Posted by Demon Lord on 18 April 2010 - 10:05 PM in Nerf Wars

WAR REVIEW!

+ Loads of new people
+ Ammo easy to come by on the field
+ HAMP vs HAMP = dart rain!
+ Seeing a point blank shot being caught by Cheerio in his teeth. I'd call that a block.
+/- VIP a fun but tweaking needed game type
- Not playing Defend the Core
+ Carpe Testiculum round 1 completely dominating
+ Round 2 of CT stealing a teams bucket while that same team stole another teams bucket
- Not playing territories
+ Monolith making its debut with the cry of "I need a fire team!"
+ Having a massive dart recovery
+/- Jumpins weren't so bad.
+/- Heat seeking darts, especially the one that dived bombed Ice Nine and hit him square in the back
+ Seeing Ryan drop his gun and run from a shield carrying Ambience327 more than once

Can't wait to to this again with more game types.



#273472 Illinois Foam Fest

Posted by Demon Lord on 26 April 2010 - 08:00 PM in Nerf Wars

I might be attending as well.

#273658 Mano 2 - Burrito Explosion

Posted by Demon Lord on 29 April 2010 - 03:48 AM in Nerf Wars

I'll be there barring some sort of unforeseen tragedy.



#274274 Mano 2 - Burrito Explosion

Posted by Demon Lord on 07 May 2010 - 09:51 PM in Nerf Wars

Like Louiec3, I too will have stuff to sell, including some rarer guns



#274486 Mano 2 - Burrito Explosion

Posted by Demon Lord on 10 May 2010 - 10:12 PM in Nerf Wars

Review:

+ Fastest round of Guard/capture the flag EVER
+ My shoulder mounted Assault HAMP working beautifully
+ Good zombie round
+ Getting rid of my excess nerf guns and getting 4 feet of brass and a couple of guns I've wanted
+ Meeting good people, if a little slow between rounds
+ Massive dart recovery, AGAIN
- Slow between rounds
- Not using the Monolith
- Zombie rounds need rules tweaking
- Is it possible to have a good powerball round?


Overall a good war, not the best but memorable anyway. Especially nerfing in hail.



#276215 Foam In The Fort - June 19th

Posted by Demon Lord on 27 May 2010 - 10:57 PM in Nerf Wars

I'm a possibility as well. Once a location is set I'll know more and once the date is closer.



#276428 Foam In The Fort - June 19th

Posted by Demon Lord on 30 May 2010 - 02:27 PM in Nerf Wars

I hope you make it - your presence would surely up the fun level a bit, and keep me from being 10 years older than anyone other than my own crew that shows up. B)

Says the guy with 3 kids and a wife.
I'll do my best to try and be there but I must ask, fun how? Fun as in "How did he pull that shot off?!" or "Oh god he's charging us!!"?



#276548 Foam In The Fort - June 19th

Posted by Demon Lord on 01 June 2010 - 12:30 AM in Nerf Wars

Hush you - my kids keep me young. (And you forgot to mention "old and fat" in there somewhere!!!)

Also, I mean fun as in I enjoyed your game play whether you were on my team or my sworn enemy - because your attitude is similar to mine - win or lose we're still having more fun than anyone else in the park who isn't Nerfing! :D

Oh, and Josh is a very solid maybe - he just has to butter up the wife enough for her to say yes. He says if you can drag Shorts down for the war, you guys can re-form the Unholy Alliance and crush all opposition. ;)


See, I wasn't going to go there, but you did so I will. Doesn't help I'm 2/3rd your weight and started running since Cataclysm.

I have a wild style of nerfing, a lot of people regard me as a wild card on the field and enjoy facing me for just that reason.

And we'll see about the Unholy Axis...we'll see what happens.



#276730 Foam In The Fort - June 19th

Posted by Demon Lord on 03 June 2010 - 05:27 PM in Nerf Wars

So is this an indoor war then?
And in regards to ammo, would converted streamlines be allowable or should I cut down the tips and felt tip them?



#276818 Foam In The Fort - June 19th

Posted by Demon Lord on 04 June 2010 - 02:33 PM in Nerf Wars

Actually they are just hot glue, I've found the bb weight is unneeded for my longshot, which happens to be the only thing it can fire. I have yet to convert it or my 8 clips plus raider drum into firing stefens.

And my vote is as long as no micros are slingshot weighted, I don't care.



#276929 Not Chano 4 - But Still A Decent War

Posted by Demon Lord on 05 June 2010 - 11:30 PM in Nerf Wars

For a war in possible flash flood zone during pouring rain, things weren't too bad.
- Got instantly drenched as soon as I got out of my car
- My nightfinder had better accuracy with the stock darts we were using than just about anything else on the field
- My +bow shooting a streamline 70ish feet horizontally, then watching it curve 90 degrees up and flying another 70 ft.
- Nerfed in a flash flood zone on top of hills
- Good people
- Small war
- Only played Carpe Testiculum, but those were good rounds
- Free foam!

Next time, let's have less flooding, but over all fun.



#277222 Mano 2.5

Posted by Demon Lord on 09 June 2010 - 02:36 AM in Nerf Wars

Add me as a maybe for the war.
Is it a problem if I lay claim to the reason that the melee length rule exists due to my melee weapons?
