Look, what happened was you picked up someone's working property without permission and it ceased to work during the time you used it. You failed to tell the owner of the mishap. These are the facts, apologize for them but don't make up bullshit excuses like "wrong place at the wrong time" or how the gun was unstable when you used it... especially when the SM1.5k of Forsaken's you were also using is leaking due to overpumping.

Now, you've apologized and blink has accepted as much as can be expected, so let's move on.

Let me get a few things straight, and this is the LAST TIME I am posting in this thread.
I asked Blink if I could see his gun, he gave me permission to do so. So it wasn't like I just grabbed it and started using it irresponsibly, and broke it. The leaky SM1.5k is CROOKED's, not FA_24's. I remember they are identically modded. I pointed out to FA_24 that it wasn't working, and he said that it was crooked's and pointed out a working one that I could use.
It said pump 4-5 times on the side in silver sharpie, I pumped it 5. I cannot remember every shot I took, and cannot guarantee that I didn't maybe exceed that. I definitely DID NOT pump it enough times to cause tank damage, and I have owned these things in the past, I damaged mine at 12 pumps. I guarantee that I did not pump it that many times.

What a beautiful war, I'm happy I could see all of you guys out.

Personal Highlights:


+ Meeting people and seeing some impressive new faces.

+ My Commlink doing beautifully the whole day (but not as good as it could have because Steve broke the barrel).

+ Getting a TON of headshots with my NF.

+ Trading my NF for a Splitfire.

+ Having quite a few conversations with Badger and buying a 2K off of him after the war.

+ Seeing the new Cambridgian do well on the field.

+ Shooting Antonio in the glasses. Running shot, 80' with a First-Gen Nitefinder.

+ Having enough guns this time around.

+ Not running out of Stefans this time.

+ Making really good Stefans for this war. I think I'll start making them for the next one.

+ Having Evil-like dodging skills for the first four rounds or so. After that I got a bit of a caffeine crash.

+ Jumping one of the tarps. I went clean over it and Vince just gave me the most amazed look I had ever seen. It was beautiful.

+ Running full speed in during the CTF One-flag game. I sprinted in, fired a shot with my NF, grabbed the flag and ran back for the win.

+ Watching Spencer run headlong into a tree. THAT was awesome.

+ The Civil War round. Spencer is a REALLY good shot. I love how I was hit there as well.

+ Seeing all of those photos from my Grandfather's camera, I'll probably post them up here tonight.

+ Guarding the flag with Badger. We were unstoppable.

+ Shooting Crooked at the same time as his shot hit me in the forehead. We both cleared and laughed it off.

+ Also being lured in by Badger. I walked into the trap, picked a couple people off and was hosed down with darts.

+ People being impressed by my (now MSDFS's) Nitefinder.

+ Tank's fall after being shot in the head.

+ Tank coming back with a shit-ton of coffees and donuts.

+ Tank (again) doing a suicide run at Rambo and getting shot while sliding.

+ A very nice turnout, but I hate people who pussy out and don't show up.

+ K9's lack of (in his words) "Triggler discipline."



There were a few lowlights:

- Sitting with MSDFS and Blink when the 5K died. I nearly shed a tear. Just... quit cluttering the thread guys, shut up.

- Steve breaking the barrel of my Commlink before the war started. It went from 8" to 4.5", which killed range and accuracy for the most part.

- The SMDTG on the Commlink being an asshat and getting stock ranges.

- Hearing about Badger's windshield. That really sucks, dude.

- Having to help Duffy get people's attention in between rounds. At least listen to what's going on around you, guys.

- Spencer walking up to me with his PASG, asking "Is it loaded?" and shooting me point-blank in the hip at the beginning of the day.

- Not making as many Stefans as I had hoped.

- Riley dropping out last minute, apparently not bothering to book the day off work.



Again, the pros outweigh the cons by A LOT. I had a lot of fun this year and I'm looking forward to next year.


Anyone up for a possible Spring/Summer war?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. A good nerf gun is like a good woman. It shouldn't require extra lubrication.

I pointed out to FA_24 that it wasn't working, and he said that it was crooked's and pointed out a working one that I could use.
It said pump 4-5 times on the side in silver sharpie, I pumped it 5.


For the record, Both SM1.5K's are now leaking.
Crookeds had a major leak.
Mine now has a minor leak.
Jays had black sharpie on the side, mine had silver.
Was it your fault? Who knows, who cares.

My AT2K is also now leaking huge and the pump is broken. Was it gryvalrcons fault? Well the pumping thing definitely was. But the leak? Probably not.

This is the problem when you lend out air guns that have user restrictions instead of built in restrictions.

Dumpster sucked 2 stefans into the plunger tube of my PAS at Apoc. Why, because he never used the gun and it had the user restriction of (Cock the gun before loading the barrel).
Was I pissed? Nope.

I guess the morals of this story are:

Do not let other people touch your guns unless you don't care about the gun.
and
Do not touch other peoples guns.

I will need to make this in my next opening statement at the winter war I plan on hosting. We are currently looking at indoor venues. I will let you guys know more later on.

I think my 2K is fried. Shit happens.
I think my Sm1.5K can be repaired.

I am also sure I can repair Blinks SM5K. It will be quite extensive but indeed this error needs to be corrected and it will make for an excellent write up.

That's right Blink, Give me your SM5K and I will do all that is in my power to fix it.
Besides, This kind of repair needs a write up anyway.

well while I was running while duel wielding my Mav and NF, occasionally I would accidentally fire while gunning, loading, and overall ending in me swearing, yelling and bruises on my legs. The TRIGGLER is from my crappy st-st-st-studdering problem

Well, I have been home now for about 4 hours. I really wish I was able to get a 3G signal for my Helio Ocean all throughout Canada. It somehow took me 2 hours less to get home even with a fucked up windshield.

Also, to reply to a quote from SplitLip:

I speak for the entire Lglf when I say that "Cons" should be banned from the war thread. Glad you all enjoyed the war though.

While I sometimes agree with that idea, I feel that it shows to users the bad things that can happen at a war and helps to educate one as to what to expect. Also, the con that I am about to post is truly worthy.

PROS:
  • Finally meeting alot of the Canadian Nerfers that I have been talking to for way too long.
  • Getting three kills with my PC throughout the day. Maybe I will work on it to improve its performance.
  • Getting some nice leading shots once again with both my Crossbow and my MaxShot.
  • Survivng (barely) three Doomsayers.
  • Getting a lucky shot on Crooked over the roof of the pavilion and nailing him in the center of the forehead, eliminating him from the round.
  • Excellent 2-man Deathmatch Round paired off with FA. We shared about 5 kills when we hit the player simultaneously.
  • Making some sales after the war.
CONS:
  • Not making enough sales. I trekked all of that shit up to Canada and even had to deal with some morons at Customs to only sell about 5 pieces at war. I'm not mad at anyone, but I really needed the cash, especially considering what happened.
  • The weather kind of sucked, though if you were at Apoc, this was nothing.
  • One kid had an easy shot at a barrel tap on me as I had no clue that he was there at all, but instead he shoots me at 10 feet with a Pump Shotty! Asshole! You don't take a shot at such close range with a gun like that. The bruise I have actually makes it quite painful when you have to drive over 5 hours, let alone just sitting for an hour. Learn to fuckin' barrel tap!
  • The first hit I take was from FA to the face. If it wasn't for eye protection, I would've gotten a personal demonstration of how healthcare works in Canada as they would be probably doing surgery on my eye.
  • The worst of them all. Maryann and I are having a great time in Canada hanging out with Rambo, FA and Crooked eating at Shoeless Joe's, an awesome restaurant with bison burgers yet not enough beer for a major sports night. FA and Crooked went out for a smoke and I went to get mine when I see that my windshield is FUCKIN' BROKEN!!! Some fuckin' waste of a body decided that my windshieldthat night needed to be broken! It was completely shattered but still intact due to the airseal the car creates when the doors are closed. I opened my door to get my smokes and when it closed, it completely fell apart. The desire to torutre the life slowly out of a certain Canadian is all that would have made me happy that night, but he wastoo much of a coward to face me and took his issues out on my car. Now I am out $250 to replace it but it can't be done until the rian stops, so Thursday. I even missed a day of work as I had to stay in Canada an extra day in the hopes of getting it fixed earlier.
I have to give a major thanks to Forsaken, Crooked and the Cardiac Kid for hooking Maryann and I up with a hotel for our stay. Our possible home accomodations got nixed due to issues beyond our control (we are an unwed couple that sleeps together and will slit your throat in the middle of the night) but all wsa good. FA and Crooked were also very helpful after the windshield incident. When you guys come back to the states next year, the first couple of drinks are on me.

Now to get some sleep.

By the way, and this is not to continue the shitstorm that is being dumped on MSDFS, but the SM1.5k that was Forsaken's clearly stated in Silver Paint "4 pumps". I know this as you just left it lying on the ground next to my gear after you bought the 2 guns I brought for you. You never told me it wasn't yours, in fact, you never said anything about it at all, and if I hadn't seen it, Crooked would have run it over with his car as it was sitting right behind his wheels. Not cool man, not cool.

Not to make things worse or to piss anyone off, but if the bitching in this thread doesn't stop, I'm closing it. I don't want to do that, but I can't have everyone arguing. If you guys want to further discuss what happened to each others guns, use PM. But try to keep this thread about the actual war.

I'm Glad you Mentioned me, I did love the War and by the way I am Dumpsters Friend at Hell and it is my First post at NH. Now if not so most of you know me as Rixon.


The highlights of the war for me was:
-Finally meeting all the fellow Nerfers i have been hearing so much about
-Being a new Cambridgian
-Shooting FA-24 with Dumpsters TTG
-Hearing about Spencer and his tree hit, But not seeing it was a downer.
-pecking Antonio while running with a Max shot.
-Hitting Spencer while running with the flag with a At2k.
-Tanks arms filled with Coffee and doughnuts was a delightful sight.

Downsides
-Accidentally breaking Dumpsters barrel due to insufficient ground placement(Sounds nerdy)
-Spending 30 minutes watching FA-24 and a few others chasing after the invisible child.

i must say,

i didnt know what to think when duffy told me about this war, kinda didnt know what to expect and walked into this rather blind as to what it could be all about

pros for the war, are that itself, i was introduced to a sport i didnt even know existed and became more and more interested as the day went on. after figuring out just exactly how far and how fast i could shoot that lovely orange and white gun, no idea what the name is, it was even better. not gonna lie, i was pretty pumped when i took out duffy and babger in the 2-man team deathmatch, and winning the every-man-for-himself in the dieing seconds

i cant think of any cons, i mean u get to go out and shoot things and when one game is done, u stock up and go again, doesnt matter what happens on and off the field and how the weather is. your coming to play a game that doesnt stop when a knot comes up untied

all in all, an experience ill never forget and can't wait for the next one

PhotoBug, aka, Maryann, will be getting them up this week, hopefully tomorrow. She has been extremely busy with work and getting sleep when she can. She works two jobs and just got a promotion at the one, so free time is a luxury for her.

I will be sure to get her to post them tomorrow. She needs to take my cat to the vet first. The photos look great and I will make sure she posts the group photo in the thread.
