I was able to get the photos from Crooked's Camera.

Am I the only one who took video at this war??
I want to make a compilation video. If anyone else has footage please contact me.

Now it's 100% official. The Canadians are out of photos. Who else has them?


I remember seeing one of the dads toting a nice-looking black video camera, pointing it around as if it was rolling.

What ever happened to that picture of you me and that dastardly Vulcan of yours?

Well I wasn't going to post that photo because my face looked so damn weird in it.
No really, I looked like I had down syndrome.
I was able to come up with a solution.

This photo was taken about 1 minute before the torrential rainfall.
Coincidence? I think not. The gods were angry.

Yeah, that was my dad. Unfortunately that camera records only on hi8 cassettes. Not much of a chance of sharing that video with the rest of the NIC.

There was some older guy there who had tanner skin, toting a stock longshot and some other stock gun who was doing a lot of filming. I think he just heard about the war and wanted to see what it was all about. I think he even got some kills too.

Was he the one that said "I'm gonna try to get this up on Youtube"? I've been looking on Youtube for that video to come up, but it should be embedded or linked in this thread as soon as it's posted, if ever.

On a side note, my cell phone somehow accidentally recorded about 25 seconds of audio. It recorded me saying "Hold it here, hold it here. Let's stop this army. As soon as they get close enough."

Here's the audio recording (Opens in Quicktime):

Lol it might have been. Did he have black hair, a 5 o' clock shadow, and cargo shorts? I don't have any clue how one could convert an analog cassette into a digital video, though, so don't get your hopes up.

You can connect the camera to a digital video camera that accepts a standard video input, and record from one camera to the other. Then you can transfer the digital video to a computer from the digital video camera. It's a pain in the ass, and the quality isn't as good, but for a youtube vieo, it'll work.

Yup I think that was him.

Well you could play it back on a nice TV, preferably LCD, plasma, or DLP, then have your webcam or a different video camera to record off of the TV, carefully placing it so the TV borders aren't shown in the new recording. It's like taking a picture of a picture.

Or you could do what Langley said. But if you don't have a second camera that accepts video input, then my method seems to be easy and cost-free, and decent enough for Youtube.

I haven't had the time to post my recap of Apoc. I actually played the worst that I have since I started nerfing. My Maxshot needs a serious reworking, my darts were not cooperating with me (500 rounds that were hit or miss), my Boomstick needs its barrel realigned as it is devaited right, my 1500 has a misalgined barrel and the coupler on my crossbow detached in the last round, which was the first time I used it. I couldn't get nearly as many hits as I am used to (didn't even get a single headshot all day) and my guns were seriously outranged (lots of BBBB and Titans) and outperformed due to my slow reload times. I still had fun, but I need to do some serious work on my arsenal if I want to be anywhere close to effective at Talio's war.

My highlights:
  • Got to play with the Canadians again and to meet a few new ones.
  • Finally got to meet Talio. Very cool guy.
  • Got to see Doomsayer in action. Got shot by them way too many times.
  • Acted like the Matador when dodging shots from Forsaken.
  • Made alot of sales, making it worth renting that massive, gas guzzling truck.
  • The rain. Knew it was going to happen yet didn't bring anything to protect Maryann and I.
  • Getting better at Gunslinger rounds, except when Forsaken, CS, and two others started hunting me. All I could hear before they attacked was Forsaken yelling, "BADGIE!!!".
  • VACC showing up, though he couldn't play yet, was cool. Glad to see him in better health than he was the last time I saw him.
  • The best highlight of them all was at the end of the day when I was selling guns. Talio was looking at my Alien Racers gun, this weird gauntlet-like piece that I had. He liked it so much that I gave it to him. I turned a tall and muscular viking into a giddy little schoolboy. Best thing ever.
Things that bothered me:
  • Way too many singled Titans and BBBB threw the balance of the game way off, moreso than the Doomsayers did.
  • People clearing improperly. When you clear, you move away from combat, as in "Clearing the area". People were clearing behind their opponents and then shooting them.
  • I love tap kills, but you can only tap as many people as you have rounds loaded. If you can only shoot once before reloading, you can't tap 4 people.
Everyone was cool and I'm sure some of the things noticed above were a result of different playstyles, but I am a cranky old man that likes things to run as they should. I'm not mad at anyone for anything that happened, I just like it when things run smoothly.

I can't wait for next year and, if gas prices drop just a bit lower, I will be travelling to alot more wars.

Now, as for pictures from the war, here is a link to my Photobucket account where the pics are located.

Seems like I was the only one able to post any video on the net.
If more video surfaces I can re-edit this.

Laughed at 5:56 to 6:00. It was also pretty amusing to watch the parts that ice shot. Thanks for the video.

Finally posting my thoughts on the war.

Good
-Getting to go to a huge war
-double kill between me and Yazz (that was awesome)-
-Playing alot of rounds with very different teams
-The multiteam round, I was set up with Evil, Cardiac Kid, and Forsaken.
-Team-Slaya letting me use his EAB
-My dad playing a couple of rounds
-Seeing the doublekill between my dad and FA24 (I thought he was nuts!)

Bad
-not doing as well as I hoped
-Not having my +bow in time for the war

Overall It was a great war, Looking forward to next year.
(analogkid, whats so funny about me saying go away to ice?)

Why would you have to wait?

Well being the tender age of 13 I can't drive, and my mom sure isn't gonna drive me because she thinks "You have enough nerf guns...." and probably wouldn't think well of me going on a bus 800 miles to shoot each other with "stupid plastic toys". Also in a few years it might interfere with football practice.

Really, this being my first large scale war, I did feel a little out of place at first. But once we got to the second battle (Ressurection Forest) things began to really pick up. Overall it was a really good war, and I am looking forward for next year's Apoc.

I have to say that my favorite battles took place in the grove, and i liked this place the most because of the balance between the cover and the open space. I do have to give compliment to the owners of the Chimera's. Good work on those gunes, very impresive. Also, the nick-name Chem-Goggles was given to me, and though I've never been one to like having nicknames, I kind of hope that this one sticks.

Really the only bad things I saw in the war were that it was very humid and hot, and that i was usually in a situation where i was greatly outnumbered.

All i have to say is great job on putting up an awesome Apoc.

Hey. I am not a pro nerfer. I really don't know that much about mods. Im here because after attending Nerf Apocalypse 2008 and met some of the professionals, I felt obligated to make a Nerfhaven account. Since I'm just starting here, I think I'll refrain from saying too much right now.

Ah, if only every new member was like Chem-goggles. Good to have you on the 'Haven, man. :ph34r:
Also, an update on my video footage, my dad seems to have lost the entire video camera (yikes!) so it's doubtful that my footage will ever see the light of day.
