no need for a whole new thread for reactions, just post here what you liked what you didn't and how you think it could have been improved.

the good:
-having a good amount of people show up
-the rain held off
-shooting almost an entire team on my own within about a min
-getting to meet haven mambers for the 1st (and 2nd time)
-getting in a lot of games
-not loseing a ton of darts
-having a ton of fun in general
-having 5 girls there to kick ass
-the duct tape to distinguish teams worked like a charm

the bad:
-long intro to house rules
-it was super cold
-no bathrooms




all in all it was sweet! We were thinging about having another one at around the end of feb. Does that sound alright to anyone else? Next time for sure we are going to bring a table to set guns, darts and other things on instead of jsut throwing them on the ground. We are also going to park our cars at different angles along the back parking lot and cover them with huge blankets so there is something to hide behind and give the parking lot a little boost. If its cold we were also thinking it would be a good idea to bring a big pump thermos thing of hot coco.

Anyways, just some thoughts. Hope to see you all soon!

This war kicked ass.

Thanks to the hosts for bringing the colored duct tape it worked amazingly even under the bizarre yellow lights. I'd love to push for an earlier war, (with breaks for food and stuff) so that it lasts longer! Everyone was wiped by 11:20 haha. Also maybe a couple short games to compliment those legit long ones? I was STUNNED how many darts came back to me.

San Jose Nerf / Team Supernova; get online! we need more normal people Nerfers.

MVP weapon of the night was DEFINATELY the LS/DTB combo. Redmark kicked some ass with that magstrike too though.

Overall way to fucking host.

I was also suprised at how fast time went by. It was 11:00 before I even knew it. Anearlier start would be nice we just have to be concious that it is a public shopping center and we usully start late so the shops are closed and there are little people around. Durring our war though there was an unsusal amount of non nerfers becasue Burrito Azteca was having some sort of party. Next time though I'm sure if we got together at 6:30 and started around 7 it would be fine. I wouldn't be against a pizza run ethire. I was starving after we all left! thanks for coming!

Maybe we could avoid problems with open stores by doing a war on Sunday, earlier close times.

After being invited to this one I was pumped, but the night war just made it harder on me. If you can somehow have one at an earlier time (still a weekend) I'd be all over this.

Looks like you guys had fun though. There seems to be an awful lot of windows there, I'd be afraid of shooting through one.

If that's the case, you should probably tone down your primary a bit. Remember that store windows are tempered glass, and rather difficult to penetrate.

In reality, I've never had the misfortune to shoot a window. I guess I'm just a bit paranoid about that. That, and it would ruin the fun for everybody else if some idiot thought it would be fun to shoot a plugged titan at the window.

In war related, please plan another!

guns of that magnitude would be banned from play and I would suggest you not even bring it so some idoit dosen't shoot it and accidently hurt something or someone. Anyhoo we are going to plan another so be on the look out for another thread.

Yeah i haven't heard much about the Fremont war, and it seems low attendance, also i know Team Supernova throws a killer party, judging by last war.

In any event If there is one, I will be attending with my roommate, and we'll bring our mutual friend.

We were thinking the next war would be around the middle to end of feb. Time for people to rework guns and save the date. Too many wars too close together will dilute their value. Trust me it will be woth the wait. Team supernova is making plans to ensure the nezt war will be OUTRAGEOUS!

As far as FMNO we will be attending, but if its just going to be us then I dont know if its going to happen. I suggest you guys come and see how haven wars are supposed to be (in the morning, in an open field) SJNO was really different from anything else here.
