Since you're too young to get a hotel, you should look around, maybe check some aim chatrooms.
Theres alot of really friendly, nice people out there, that'd be more than willing to accomodate a young boy.

SHit, he even had a fog machine.... DAMN I wish I could have been there. I spent the day setting up my school auditorium for a ballet performance going on there in the next week (scouts stuff, we do it every year) and selling christmas trees (also scouts (venturers)) Then I did homework. I was really sad all day because I kept imagining what you guys were doing.....

To follow in the footsteps of Talio and split, I am going to request that we completely eliminate low lights/cons.

I am incredibly fucking tired.

3 hours of sleep before a big war which felt so much like gears of war as we were running from barricade to barricade = a really tired giant.


I spent the day setting up my school auditorium for a ballet performance


For the record, that has to be the gayest excuse I have ever heard someone missed a war for.

Kickass war. Not equal to HBH, but excellent considering the circumstances.

Highlights from my day include a sweet team doubles game with Crooked, coming in second to "Uncle Fester".
Some damn fine hits from across the gym with by borrowed AT3K, and some equally amazing shots scored on me.
Forsaken's collection keeps these afloat, he's really doing an incredible amount getting the Canadian nerfer thing going, especially with his wicked arsenal. A lot of high powered blasters in a pretty small room!

Excellent seeing people come up from Stateside, too!

Huge thanks to everyone who helped put this together.

Well I had a long drive home back to Ohio last night, haha, I was nearly passing out for the last 100 miles! Anyways, I'm glad I came up. While I've hosted many wars this was the first time that I've ever attended someone elses or played with anyone from the forum. It was a great time and there was obviously alot of time, effort and money put into it happening. Thanks FA and Fester!

I think my favorite thing about this war was the sheer numbers of people we had. There were a few games that we played that were just frantic because there are so many people shooting at you. I personally love that! Like someone else mentioned it was cool to see so many new people enjoying the event and experiencing Nerf. I think that your wars can only get better from here. It was a good learning experience and I know Forsaken probably has some other ideas now about how to make it even better!.

Thanks again guys, had a blast.

What can I say I am still hurting from this war.
It truly was some form of Massacre.

Highlights:
-Seeing Garrett's insane rushing kills. This man has some serious skills and I can only hope to see him again one day on the field.
- Shooting the one kid right between the eyes on the bridge of his eye protection from 30 feet with Doomsayer.
- Seeing all the new faces and quite possibly some future threats.
- Seeing my buddy from work Sugule Sugule kicking ass.
- Watching Booner taking his precise shots.
- Shooting through a hole in a barricade at Garretts face and Garrett dodging it matrix style.
- Breaking the attendance record by having 28 people attend.
- Not losing many darts at all. I haven't done a count or anything but I think I am only short like 200 or so. More darts were breaking than anything.
- Seeing the ability to attract more people to the hobby without hoping they bring all their own supplies.
- Playing the entire day very similar to the game Gears of War. Rush to cover, take some shots, Rush to the next cover, see who is in range, Mentally time everyones movement patterns and attack. Fucking amazing!
- The shocking toughness that some of the younglings had. This one kid who was 12 took a shot from a BBBB to the throat from like 25 feet and wasn't even crying.
-Intense games of center flag push/pull
- Intense rounds of Kill the chief which will be known from now on as Guardian.
- Civil war in the beginning which let people get a feel for the game.
-Crooked getting shot in the forehead,getting a bump that was bleeding a little.
- The overall size of the gym. I have never been in a gym that big before.
- The barricades worked very well. We do have plans to improve these for the next one.
- The 2 dirty welts on egons face.
- Dumpster's Grandfather who let me walk around with his amazing Camera and take shots with it. That is seriously something I am thinking of investing into. I love photography and that thing made all my stress melt away.
- Seeing Cobra10 kick ass as usual.
- Rune hawk shooting me in the fucking earlobe. That was a pain I cannot explain. It was like Arnold Schwarzenegger flicked my ear back when he was on the juice.
- Fester some how being able to damn near completely cover his face with ski goggle and hood combo.
- Meeting Applefury and his friends.
- The insanely fast darts sweeps. 28 people on the floor picking up darts for 5 minutes and the room is clean.
- Riley who was mortaring shots into that stupid bunker.
- Getting shot in the fucking side by Garrett after he sled feet first beside my barricade only to unload his unholy AT2K into me.
- Crooked defying the laws of physics and sliding on his back past barricades while spinning and somehow aiming at his targets on the other side. (We got one of them on film!)
- Being able to film the entire war.
- Hearing all the different cracks and pops from different modified Nerf guns resonate throughout the gym creating a slow burning fire like sound.

I am sure there are more but that's all I can think of right now.
I have tons of video/pictures to edit.
I may have to turn this into a DvD or some thing. Maybe even make it into a 20 part you tube series or something.
This war was a fucking blast and I cannot wait for the next one.

If you are reading this and you attended this war please post what you liked about it.
If you have any suggestions for the next one please pm me.

Cough.


What are you coughing at? The fact that you also posted a blog on the subject? A con post is more valid than a fucking website tout in a thread about a war you didn't attend.

CONS:

-The USPS sucking dick and not delivering my guns in time.

PROS:

-Another great Canadian war.
-A great first indoor war - I hope I can attend many more of these, it worked out quite well with the barricades Forsaken and others mentioned.
-Using 'Lionheart' - this Level 3 PAS definitely has a bit more kick than mine. It was dead-on accurate all day, I hope mine proves to be just as accurate in the future.
-Garrett's and Crooked's rushes and slides - the venue lent itself to these strategies quite well, much praise for these guys utilizing speed so well in the midst of some stagnant rounds.
-Drawing a crowd of high schoolers looking in through gym doors.

FA: I will be first down for a DVD if you do make them. I don't care how much they cost, war footage is so much fun to watch. I can't wait to see you guys at Massacre 2.

Should be fun to see some pics and video from the war. Since we captured every round of the day on vid, my vote is to cut out the dead space and show the whole day in fast motion, so like a 3-4min vid, maybe even labeling what each game was. I know it would be cool to see it say "Guardian" and then watch a 12 min game in 30 seconds, haha. And then also a video highlights reel of the top 10 best shots or something. Something condensed and nothing but action.

P.S. Crooked, sorry about your bloody forehead, HAHA.

I was out when Crooked slid across the barricade, seeing Dumpsters face as crooked slides in and fires a Pas at 8 feet away at him was priceless.

@Garrett
NP man great double kill... I just plan to get my 2k to that power!

Man I had a fucking blasty blast at this thing. Indoor had its pros and cons but fun was had by all and that is the main fact.

Highlights

- Standing behind cover and hearing the sound of death almost breaking through by the darts shot from the opposing team
- Great battles had throughout the games
- losing targets with the Crooksbow and PAS from across the gym.
- Exactly what FA24 said about the Gears of war esque playing.
- Doubles match was an upset for me but my partner was amazing... HEINRICH KILLA!
- Watching Garrett rush in for a kill and out unscathed, dude we should have join forces and take over the world.
- Having the Americans down - Rambo thanks for making it down again, hope you enjoyed.
- Garrett next time hopefully you can stay longer and we'll volleyball it up
- The cover provided by FA24 and Unkie Fester was great. Thanks so much for putting this together, you'll always have my support.
- My dramatic slide to victory literally around a barricade to take Dumpster out and win the match.
- The turnout. There were so many people new and old, great to see this thing evolving into something good up hear in the Mighty North.

Can't wait for Massacre 2.0 if there is anything you think I am missing please post I love reading what others have to say about past wars and it also helps tell us what you like so we can include it in the next war.

Just got some photos in an E-mail from Dumpsters talented Grandfather.
I cannot wait to see the entire batch of photos.

Posted Image
This photo was taken right before lunch. I do beleive some people had left already. Others came really late.
At least now those people who came in late know what they were missing out on. They will be on time at the next one. We actually had 28 people at this war.

Might vs Stealth is the first thing that comes to mind when viewing the above photo.
I love it.
