If it were a recurring event with a name and some history, then there might be people enthusiastic enough to compare schedules, and hash out which dates work best, and for how many people. But with no history behind you or your event, most will adopt a "wait and see" attitude, and it's up to you to show that you can make a full and complete plan.
Bob's right, nerfer9.
Step 1 to make this war happen:
Delete the "?" from behind "February 7th" in your first post. Solidify it. See what happens.
Remember all those people who came to your last war but haven't posted in here? PM them! Let them know you want to have another event, and that they should come. Kdizzlewhatever-that-number-is hasn't posted in here yet, and I know there are more...
Tell ALL of your friends that all of the cool kids will be at such and so a place on such and so a day, and that it's going to be awesome, so they have to be there. In short: recruit people into your OWN group. Single nerfers rarely draw crowds. CLANS draw crowds. My first war I hosted never would've gotten Spoon, Cxwq, Rawray7, Anyaseijin, and more to come if there wasn't a 9-person clan I was representing. People like numbers. Bags...bags would've come to the first CAFF anyway, but that's besides the point...
Make up some BS about some high-profile members flying across the country to come to your war. When everyone shows up and the big-wigs aren't there, just say their flight got cancelled, carry on with your day, and have a good time.
In short, I'm almost DEMANDING that you make this war happen, because I want to see y'all up in the northern half of my state having a good time.
