Quick bit: I think I know the park you're talking about and isn't that whole bit (especially with such proximity to the MSI) really heavy with people traffic? That could be problematic with attracting police attention, although you would know the patterns of the area better than I.


The park we're looking at specifically shouldn't be too heavy with people traffic as the beach is further north. At most, we might get people doing the BBQ on the edges. If it does turn out to be too busy, the secondary park we're looking at should be private campus property and relatively devoid of people.

As we get closer to the day, we'll do some scouting to gauge people density.

Quicker bit: Would crossfire shields be allowed for blocking attempts? I guess you can strike me down as a maybe at this point.


Generally the only shield allowed in a war is a Manta Ray shell, which must be attached to a gun that retains the ability to fire a foam projectile. We will call shenanigans on someone who puts a Manta shell on anything larger than, say, a Manta Ray; mounting it on top of a SplitFire (a la the Scimitar) is kosher, but Crossbows/4Bs/the like will be not allowed in. Crossfire shields are generally not discussed (and therefore I assume allowed), but as they are pretty small and I don't think they'll really create an unfair advantage, even if you practiced with one.

That said, I'm going to be concrete and completely define this rule, right now: You are allowed to bring exactly ONE Crossfire shield (not limited in use in any way) into play during every round but the pistol round; in pistol rounds, one is allowed a single Crossfire shield but the only weapon that may accompany it is a Crossfire. This rule might be refined and changed in the duration of the war as Zorn and I see fit but as of now these are the non-negotiable requirements for Crossfire shield use.

Okay, I've talked to the rest of my family and I'm more of an 80% now. My little brother will play and my dad might. I'm not sure that I understand the banned weapons. Plugged pump missile launchers need to be shotgunned to at least three barrels? I'm fine with that as long as they're not banned all together. I'll keep my fingers crossed on coming.

If it is a Spy Gear Missile Launcher, and the pump has been plugged, it must have at least three barrels hooked up to the airtank; all three (or more) barrels must be fired at the same time. I put you on the list plus two.

What about a 4 round big blast? It has a four barrel scatter attachment.

I've been asked a couple questions about the war and I figure now is as good a time as any to lay it out. Before coming, I expect you to read through Badger's excellent (stickied) thread on war etiquette. We will be pretty much adhering to the West Coast standard rules (since those are the ones I'm most familiar with) but there's so much more to the topic than that. Please get a basic understanding and concept of what a "douche move" would be during a war. The rule of thumb I go by is, if it would frustrate me to have it done to me, I won't do it. Don't shoot someone when a tap will suffice.

As far as volume of armament to bring to the war, it depends on your personal play style. I've met people who have been perfectly happy to play the entire day with two guns (primary and secondary, usually a pistol as the secondary for use in other types of games), whereas others have a flexible style and switch it up every few rounds. I generally fall into the latter, taking up different combinations of my guns. Zorn, if his current methodology is employed, will probably stick to one or two main guns throughout the day. If I were bringing things (i.e., if the war weren't outside my dorm) I would err on the side of too much. The worst that happens is that you've spent extra effort to make sure you're set for the day. Plus, you'll have extra weapons in case someone else needs one/your primary breaks/something else happens. If you plan to bring stuff to sell or trade, feel free. It's a course of action I endorse. I may even have a thing or two to get rid of myself.

Feel free to bring any guests you like but make sure they are familiar with the rules before coming. If you do so, you should be prepared to supply all the darts and guns they will need. I will be unhappy (but probably forgiving) if I have to dole out my weapons because you decided to travel light. I plan on advertising the event to UChicago kids I am familiar with, and I'm prepared to spend an extra weekend or so preparing guns for them to use and making darts as well.

Finally, I will have printed copies of the rules from Badger's thread just to serve as a refresher at the war.

YES! I'm in Wisconsin, so I'm always jealous of the east and west cost events. I MIGHT be able to go, but chances are that I can. I'm going to fight my parents as hard as I can for this one. I also might be able to bring the rest of my clan (2-3 people). I'm really pumped now. :lol:

You also said that pneumatic pistols weren't aloud in the pistol round, but what about an assassin modded, non-plugged-pump, SSPB? Another question that I had, is what is the maximum amount of pistols that you are aloud to carry in the pistol round?

I don't think that SSPBs will give any sort of unfair advantage in being an airgun during the pistol round, so yeah, we'll allow that. During the pistol rounds we'll cap guns at three but in reality I doubt very many people are going to use that many.

Done, and done.

In other news, Zorn convinced me to change it from ChANO to Chernobyl (I took it as a joke). In all seriousness, guys, still call it ChANO.

In case anyone asks, feel free to bring any guests you want. Family, friends, the rest, I won't have a problem with it. There are two things about that, though: one, you have to explain them war etiquette so they don't show up and act like pricks; two, you have to supply darts and guns for them. If you can meet both those requests(with some leeway on number two, though hopefully leeway won't be necessary), they're perfectly okay to come.

How about this:


What kinda ammo does everyone use? I really only use stock darts and in my experience stefans don't really fit my stock barrels or my marker barrels, unless I'm not shrinking them enough.

I've talked to at least two people who plan on using stock darts. I have been making exclusively micro stefans recently but by wartime I'll probably have a few CDTs for use whenever. Any gun in my or Zorn's possession is barreled (or, in the case of a few smaller pistols, just peg-removed) to work with the micro stefans I've crafted.

It always helps to be able to fire darts shot at you back at the person who initially shot them but it's not wholly necessary if you have a decent amount on you during the war.

This is just a general from past wars but each person should have anywhere from 75-150 darts for their primary, then whatever works for pistols.


On a different note will there be any pistol rounds?

And figure on the headcount for me to be myself plus 2-3.

Is anyone going to be selling anything at this war? I'm not sure if this is off-topic or not, sorry if it is. I'm saving up for a new primary. I'll bring stuff to sell if anyone else does.

I'll have some stuff for sale. I have 2 rolls of 800' of the Mile High foam, a ton of brass in the common sizes, and some modded reflex (eliminator pistols).

I'll also have some modded AT3K's and one AT2K if anyone is interested in working out a deal. If you are in need of a primary, pm me and we can work out a deal.

If anyone in the area needs any supplies before the war just pm me.
