#111203 Modification and Paintjob Pictures

Posted by Mantis on 14 June 2007 - 12:21 PM in Modifications

Qui'lan Fett and MithMortaint, I just glanced at this page and your guns are fucking badass. Where did the shotgun come from?

/not a lot to do at work today

#110089 Nerf War Etiquette

Posted by Mantis on 08 June 2007 - 03:15 PM in Nerf Wars

I don't know how they do things in New Mexico, or how people who joined the forums some 2,500 people after me do it, but if your gun is around a corner and someone shoots it, they are a dumbass.

Unless their dart went in your barrel, in which case they actually own you (in the literal sense).

#111173 Nerf War Etiquette

Posted by Mantis on 14 June 2007 - 07:41 AM in Nerf Wars

This is getting ridiculous, as Hersh-ey Pie said. The rules should come from word of mouth. I believe our (the right) rules on gun shots came from the Horsemen. If your (retarded) rules work for your crew, have at it.

#110077 Nerf War Etiquette

Posted by Mantis on 08 June 2007 - 02:52 PM in Nerf Wars

The thing to remember in Nerf wars is: Don't be a douche bag. Badger summed this up pretty well.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this yet, but getting hit in the gun needs to be revised. The hit should only count if your gun is blocking the shot from hitting your person. That is to say, if you're shouldering the gun (aiming) and someone standing 90 degrees to your left shoots and hits your gun, it would have completely missed you, thus it shouldn't count. I had to correct a young gun about this at the Tune Up when it happened to him.

And as far as clearing in goes, use the Golden Rule of nerf wars, because I will break your gun in half if you shoot me from 5 feet away with one of those damn brass guns and you led me to believe you're out.

#111384 Nerf War Etiquette

Posted by Mantis on 15 June 2007 - 07:59 AM in Nerf Wars

As a general rule, any gun hit, except for the Manta ray, for obvious reasons, is a hit. No arguments will save you. Suck it up and start counting. I stated this already, but I guess it needs to be said again.

Sometimes I forget that badger gets the final ruling in all matters pertaining to nerf.

I like the argument that it makes the game flow smoother. But if you can't reason with the person whom you think you shot/ the person who thought he shot you, nerfing has lost a lot. Hell, if someone tells me they really think they got me, I'll take it unless I saw the dart land elsewhere.

Count me in for sure

#242327 Nj Apocalypse #8

Posted by Mantis on 16 July 2009 - 08:23 PM in Nerf Wars

Holy fucking monkeyballs. I remember when 30 or so people was a ton, I think I'm gonna come to see how this thing turns out.

#224384 Nj Apocalypse #8

Posted by Mantis on 19 April 2009 - 04:39 PM in Nerf Wars

What the hell is a pistol splat?

#319878 Apocalypse 2012

Posted by Mantis on 04 August 2012 - 08:15 AM in Nerf Wars

You guys are having this war about 6 miles from my house, expect me to show up at an unexpected point throughout the day

#29095 More Love From Hasrbo

Posted by Mantis on 21 June 2004 - 10:23 PM in General Nerf

Talio, I love you in a butt way.

#111829 Dcno - Summer '07

Posted by Mantis on 18 June 2007 - 10:52 AM in Nerf Wars

I really liked the part where you pick up the blue barricade and start using it as a shield...I'm at work so no sound for me on the video, but I can only hope it was filled with people yelling at you for being cheap in that part ;)

I did enjoy Hersh's runway-style walk in one part too.

#109716 Dcno - Summer '07

Posted by Mantis on 06 June 2007 - 12:46 PM in Nerf Wars

You guys were saying that there are backup places to play, I just wanted to make sure that's true. I'd hate to make this drive and have nowhere to go when we get chased out by the boys in blue.

#110018 Dcno - Summer '07

Posted by Mantis on 08 June 2007 - 07:10 AM in Nerf Wars

I like it, we could have multiple angles, leading to the best nerf video ever.

Oh yeah, guys, I'm thinking about getting metal legs before the war. Its a risky operation but it'll be worth it.

#109693 Dcno - Summer '07

Posted by Mantis on 06 June 2007 - 08:54 AM in Nerf Wars

Although delicious, pizza leads to people walking for several rounds after lunch. And now that I've been called out for my Roy's comment, I might have to come.

#109580 Dcno - Summer '07

Posted by Mantis on 05 June 2007 - 02:54 PM in Nerf Wars

Honestly, I was kind of a bitch last time about going to the celebrity delly. I only went b/c some asshole said I couldn't. Fixed their ass. However, I wouldn't mind ordering Pizzas from Tally-Ho this time, as it will certainly expedite the nerfing for the day.

You gotta be kidding me, if we've learned anything its that pizza is a no-no. If there's a Roy Roger's within an hour of this place, I'll come.

#112152 Armageddon 2007 Planning Thread

Posted by Mantis on 20 June 2007 - 09:10 AM in Nerf Wars

Alright fellas, odds are none of you know me, but I'm going to make an (extremely half-assed) effort to get to this war. My plan consists of the following:
  • Download Southwest's DING
  • Keep it on for the next 17 days and hopefully get a plane ticket for 5 cents
  • Steal Underpants
  • ?
  • Profit
If all goes according to plan, especially Phase II, I'll be there.

Edit: I just went on an emotional rollercoaster, being elated that we had a free party plane, and crestfallen when it fell through (which was obviously going to happen). So after browsing to the topic, is Ontario the best airport, assuming my plan works?

#100998 Armageddon 2007 Planning Thread

Posted by Mantis on 11 March 2007 - 01:03 PM in Nerf Wars

Its good to see this is coming together so early. I might be able to make it, if some of the other clowns from this (better) side of the country come.

Happy 3/11 Day!

#117981 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 02 August 2007 - 07:14 AM in Nerf Wars

Guys, GUYS! I know this whole choosing what battles you're in sounds tricky, and it is, I mean 3 whole options to pick from??
I can just imagine it now.

Paul: Ok, in the upcoming round you can either do a round with Primaries or a Multi-Team Battle. For the primaries, you can either play in the Resurrection Forest or the Grove. Those who wanna do the Grove, over here, otherwise over there. Anyone who wants to do a Multi-team battle, go over there.


This is gonna be ridiculous guys, better bring your thinking caps.

#118138 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 03 August 2007 - 08:33 AM in Nerf Wars

I'm gonna refer you guys (mostly the young'ins who aren't wise in the ways of water) to here for some info about how badly dehydrated you're gonna be tomorrow.

Luckily, I've made darts that actually inject water into the person they hit, so I'll be making sure everybody stays well hydrated.

#113526 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 28 June 2007 - 01:26 PM in Nerf Wars

Let's keep the suggestions to an absolute minimum, that means don't offer up any ideas unless they're good. An example of something to not suggest would be what Dark Shrimp just said. As much as I enjoy a good FFA, its a terrible idea.

#113661 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 29 June 2007 - 07:20 AM in Nerf Wars

Invitation only would certainly make me feel special, I don't know everybody else. Rest assured though, I can't remember having a strong dislike for anyone in particular (except for that Rambo guy :( ) so I'll be fighting to make sure everyone who wants to come to this history-making war gets an invite if it comes to it.

We'll get together over the weekend sometime (oh yeah, Deal is tomorrow) and let you clowns know whats going.

#116165 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 17 July 2007 - 01:29 PM in Nerf Wars

Can't you read the sign? NO CANADIANS! (Except Stefan)

#113669 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 29 June 2007 - 08:40 AM in Nerf Wars

The suggestion box has been closed unless you're Hersh, who can be teleconferenced into the diner we'll be planning this at.
We are not the Horsemen. They have planned Deal wars down to when people get to take a piss, and that works great for them, but that is not feasible for Apoc. How can we make rosters when people tell us they're bringing between 8 and 20 people? Having no idea about how 1337 kids are also presents quite an issue in making teams ahead of time.

We'll let you guys know.

#113452 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 28 June 2007 - 08:28 AM in Nerf Wars

This is looking to be a clusterfuck of massive proportions. The LCM is gonna have to have a meeting (we'll leave Evil out since he can make decisions on his own) and decide how we're gonna handle all you fuckers.

#113123 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 26 June 2007 - 10:08 AM in Nerf Wars

Warpig (in case you dropped by to read this),
You have just doomed humanity. I went out on a limb for someone who doesn't even know how to properly make up an excuse to get out of something (see: Famine's post) and this is what I get. I will never be nice to anyone I don't know ever again thanks to you. From this moment on, I shall never "pay it forward" again.

Thank you,
Heartbroken in Toms River

#117854 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 01 August 2007 - 07:11 AM in Nerf Wars

Should be a good war, I look forward to having 59 other people to aim at.

#112999 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 25 June 2007 - 12:34 PM in Nerf Wars

When we all find out that the person who passed away was a key player in this young man's life, and that is the reason he won't be able to find time for a nerf war, we're all gonna feel like complete douche bags.

#112992 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 25 June 2007 - 11:51 AM in Nerf Wars

You people...saying what the rest of us were thinking.

#111997 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by Mantis on 19 June 2007 - 01:25 PM in Nerf Wars

For those who have never been to Apoc, its a blast. The rounds start off with bikini-clad women shouting go, they end with people crying, and someone is touched inapproriately every time. Sadly, there's gonna be too many of you whipper snappers running around for the Creek, so Matt decided on Deal. The bigger the better, the Huskaroo sweater, is what I always say.

Who knows, I might even spring for a gun of my own between now and then.

I look forward to this war and the strict training schedule that always accompanies it.

#112145 A Really Fucking Old Nerf Gun

Posted by Mantis on 20 June 2007 - 08:36 AM in General Nerf

Don't listen to the haters. Me and Howard dominated an entire war once using ballguns, pissing every single person off in the process.

In conclusion: Guns don't kill people, ball guns kill people.

#337809 Apocalypse 2014

Posted by Mantis on 28 March 2014 - 04:38 PM in Nerf Wars

I will not be able to make the war, but would anyone be able to get some high-quality footage and maybe some interviews with famous nerfers? I am planning on making an episode on the channel dedicated to Apoc 2014 since it is hard to find good Apoc footage. Thanks guys.

If there is any of the good ol' days footage it would be practically unwatchable. Our site used to be on the archive.org wayback machine but I can't get to it anymore.

Yo nerfmonkey, do you got a joint man?

Be a lot cooler if you did

#112955 Deal War (new Jersey)

Posted by Mantis on 25 June 2007 - 07:18 AM in Nerf Wars

Hersh, in exchage for an HJ and me muling some of your stuff from spot to spot, could you bring an extra gun and pistol for me? I tried modding my maverick last time and things went right to shit.

You're out of your element Donnie.

:ph34r: Count me in on the 9th I will bring commrads!!!

I think you are now my favorite member of any nerf forum after this post.

#105644 Deal War (new Jersey)

Posted by Mantis on 15 May 2007 - 11:37 AM in Nerf Wars

I remember Howard saying he went to one of these wars, and he had a blast. If it would keep teams even I'd be able to make either date.

#111965 Deal War (new Jersey)

Posted by Mantis on 19 June 2007 - 07:46 AM in Nerf Wars

As long as no one tries to use an Ocean County map to find the meeting place, we'll be fine.


I vote for the rallying spot to be a place with BOTH lap dances and a buffet. And as for these new games types, I can only hope that my dreams of playing naked CTF come to fruition.

#112966 Deal War (new Jersey)

Posted by Mantis on 25 June 2007 - 09:29 AM in Nerf Wars

I thought being a clan = being good :P.

Nah, look at the LGLF.

#113471 Deal War (new Jersey)

Posted by Mantis on 28 June 2007 - 10:48 AM in Nerf Wars

I got a maverick before the last war and messed up the mod, or that is to say, got lazy and didn't finish it. As far as I can tell, every part is still with it, so if anyone with the time/energy to mod it wants to take it, its yours. Hersh gets first dibs since he always lets me use his shizzle at the wars.

#113451 Deal War (new Jersey)

Posted by Mantis on 28 June 2007 - 08:26 AM in Nerf Wars

Wow, I gotta give it to you guys, this sounds like its gonna be a hell of a time. And tailbone, get used to it, those two have been getting the LCM excited since we were young boys.

#113547 Deal War (new Jersey)

Posted by Mantis on 28 June 2007 - 03:16 PM in Nerf Wars

Considering I get off at 105 to see the girlfriend a few times a week, I can vouch for you having to bear left to get on 36 east, unless there's a super secret shortcut I don't know about.
