It's a commercialized, stock version and potentially televised version of a NIC-organized war. Since Hasbro is one of the main sponsors, I seriously doubt they'd allow modified weapons of any kind. If you did participate, you'd probably be forced to use the new Dart Tag blasters and wear those ridiculous glasses with orange lenses, or some new re-packaged variation on the idea.
Just because we modify the blasters and have some semblance of nerfing experience doesn't mean we would "own everyone else there." I doubt any "owning" would take place, as most of us have become accustomed to using modified weaponry or otherwise having our darts travel a good 50 feet at the minimum, not 15. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with a stock weapons class, but I wouldn't make any assumptions on how well anyone would do since these are, after all, stock Dart Tag blasters...air restrictors and all. They'd essentially all be the same.
