I guess were now on the recaping part.

Pros
-------
My night finder breaking the first round.
Meating new people.
Getting an idea on what gun im gonna do next.
Getting foam samples.
Only getting shot 8 times.
Getting some nice shots during the rounds.

Cons
--------
leaving early.



Also I want to know who made these darts and what foam they're made of, because they fit great in my PETG breeches.

Highlights:

- PAS coupler is now straight due to basically converting into a +bow style barrel attachment.
- Face-raping guns to come out of the mod party. Autorotating MAN CANNON.
- More new people.
- Same old people, especially the visitors. Nerfing with Carbon, Beaver, and atomatron is always awesome.
- Solvent weld is fucking awesome. I redid the airflow on a 4B less than 12 hrs before the war started, so no way would superglue/goop hold pressure. But solvent weld held pressure after only an hour.
- Finding a crapload of darts from Chano 2.5.
- Barrel length is a stupid consideration when the gun punches 80' whether barrel length is 8" or 16".
- Most unfair DTC round in the history of DTC.
- Cool cop #1 and asshole cop #2.

Eh, if #2 was an asshole, he would have written us the ticket (although I don't know why he asked us, "You had a good time, right?" four times.). It was good timing, as far as I'm concerned. I was pretty wiped by then, and my pistols suck.

Other highlights from the day:

• No one knowing that there was going to be a cross country meet going on in the morning. Far too many pedestrians, but good nerfing in spite of it.
• Getting to nerf with Beaver, atomatron, and Busta in Chicago, as well as the Chicago Trio of Destruction. Great seeing you guys.
• Darts blending in with all the goose shit.
• Freakin' fantastic weather.
• Trading off shots with Merzlin all day.
• Gekko's blowgun. Awesome.
• The Cobra and shotgunned Jumbos. Dear god.
• Having one very balanced DTC game, and then one blowout DTC game.
• I liked Team Powerball, but not sure about the invincible goalies.
• Crazy powerful guns that were making their barrels explode.
• Kane flushing everyone out of cover with a stock Berzerker.

Great day everyone, thanks.

I took a shower that lasted way too long to wash off the awesome of the previous thirty hours or so.

Highlights time.
  • Mod party, again. So many people, so little space.
  • Ryan's AT3K. Fucking beast monster. My AT3K prototype? Oh solvent weld, you are not as cool as Zorn is telling everyone you are.
  • Team MAN CANNON was totally all ready to ruin faces, what with the autorotation, but we never got around to doing a primary wingman. Unfortunate!
  • <3 the Man Cannon. That thing was shooting on par with Ryan's +bow.
  • Least fair DTC? Yes. Most fun DTC? Also yes. If only my phone hadn't spent its time underneath the +bow doing the gods know what instead of filming.
  • I was legitimately terrified of both Ryan's AT3K and Zorn's 4B. Thank the gods they killed themselves. Zorn's 4B pierces several layers of cardboard with altogether too few pumps.
  • Meeting a bunch of dudes I hadn't met. Carbon, Atomaton, other guys whose names I don't remember, nice Nerfing with you.
  • Caffeine... Showed up!
  • Caffeine... Showed up ten minutes after the war was over!
  • Lightnin' Blitzes are great.
  • My +bow broke again. And I broke the Maximizer. ;-;
  • The Maximizer is totally fixable! Yaaaaaaay.
  • I got a SuperMaxx 3000. Guess what's happening to it.
  • I got absolutely destroyed during TPB. Merzlin, clearly my essence was instilled when you created that RSCB so that it hit me and ONLY me. My face welt is painful.
  • Pistol round was good times. Ryan and I didn't lose lives. Plus, I totally outran Kane.
  • Demon Lord slipped with the Vulcan and was immediately mobbed. I was on his team and had to laugh.
  • Checklist of projects for the next war: Lightnin' Blitz mounting plate. I think that covers it.
  • The morning deathmatch rounds were EXCELLENT. Zorn, I think we both hit each other at easily over one hundred feet. Fuck yo' PAS.
  • I'm totally too exhausted to think of more but it was a super solid day.
I'M GEARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRS.

I'm so tired. I was singing to myself on the drive back to Minnesota just to keep myself awake.
  • Good nerfing with the Chicago crew, and seeing Carbon again.
  • Quality modding time the night before. Get more sleep, Zorn.
  • Scary blasters are scary.
  • I had a lot of fun playing DTC.
  • Great weather!
This is probably the most prepared I've been for a war. Granted, I didn't have enough darts, but you NEVER have enough darts.

Heh, true.

All around great war. Despite trouble with the police twice, I had a very enjoyable day. I'm just glad the weather was so beautiful.

-Highlights
  • Nerfing again with the MN crew. Beaver, Paul, Julian, thanks for coming.
  • Also nerfing again with Carbon. You rock man.
  • The Unholy Three pwned.
  • My 3k destroying itself. It is very fixable though, and it's probably a good idea I only used it for half a round
  • 1500 dominating once again. I love this thing.
  • My +bow got some action
  • Hopper clips=unfair
  • Kelvin's retarded 4B
  • Mod party was great. Even though I didn't do much.
  • Finding tons of darts from 2.5
  • Having almost enough darts, even though we made ~1200 the last two weeks.
  • Vulcan kid at Walmart
  • Caffeine showed up!
  • Not sleeping again and dying after the war.
  • Unintentionally ditching Kane and Caffeine to go to Wendy's
  • Secret STQ rounds
  • The Wingman pistol round was actually a lot of fun.
  • DTC went very well, even though the camera didn't record.
  • The totally unfair DTC round. Very entertaining.
  • My mom and other family showing up and supporting us.
Notes on DTC:

Having the core in little to no cover works very well, at least when the teams are even. The first game the final score was 10 to 5. I think this will make long pot shots at the core, actually useful.

Wow, only two mentions, and from people I've already Nerfed with? I guess I shoulda been more offensive.

Great fun.
-Slim Jim's dad TEARING US UP WITH A FUCKING BLOW GUN
-The boxes. Those were fun.
-Getting use out of my two working primaries. I love them both.
-Effeminate shots, and some dodges.
-My coat saving my ass in an Effeminate way. Leather for the win.
-Chicago squad. Lots of fun.
-The total pwnage Defend the core round... That made me a little sad. I mean... 40 to 1, and the one was from Ryan
-Kain's Effeminate pump/blow/whatever guns. They worked.

Oh, I still owe you money Ryan. I totally forgot about getting cash.

I had lots of fun. Probably more then I had at the last MN war. Every one plays really well, or atleast really fairly.

OFFICIAL INVITE!!

Come to MN... Now
(Were the STQ rounds against who I think they were?)

The one on the +bow (top right) is actually just an 8 barrel speed loader. It is fucking awesome.
The one in the center is a firefly turret on a super PAS. Maybe I'll get a picture of it up sometime, and if I really feel like it, internals and maybe a quick write-up.

Two thoughts about the day:

We should use more random team creation methods. The DtC round showed that picking teams is no guarantee against lopsided teams.

Also, I found a couple of rules we were missing in TPB that would have changed the dynamic by the goals. One is that "if a player is shot while carrying a ball they must carry it back with them as they cannot advance the ball by being shot". So most of the balls that were being camped over should have been brounght back to the other end, since most of them ended up being there as the result of a shot.

The other is that, while the goalie is invulnerable, it's legal to shoot him. Makes for good strategic shots, distractions...and makes it a good idea to have a goalie who can play in the face of a +bow. Also makes it a good idea for the goalie to wear a decent jacket.

I think this is a necessity at this point. Slug's method for random team creation might be worth a try. I'll use it at the Halloween war.

PAIN IS BAD. I can envision a team of sadistic +bow users pummeling the goalie with darts from 20 ft away while they laugh and throw powerballs in the #3 bucket.

I was going to try the flashcards, like Koree used at the last MN war I participated at.

It does mix up the teams but doesn't guarantee even teams either.

I forgot to tell you that you're my new favorite Nerfer. You need to find some more Kleenex-brand body armor.

P.S. I need a Maximizer. I need to Maximize more people. I've been lied to about three of them so far.

I had an awesome time at the war on SAT., but the police issue was getting kinda of annoying. Atleast it wasn't at the beginning of the day, or even during lunch
  • Zorn's BBBB- Holy. Shit.
  • Went to a great mod party the night before finishing my SM1500, and then noticing it doesn't seal the morning before. Ouch
  • Seeing a couple of the Minn. guys. Julian, by FAR you are the funniest nerfer I have ever met.
  • Using my +bow all day without seeing it break, for the 12th time.
  • Getting in a couple pistol rounds! Thanks Beaver for letting me use your NF again!
  • Meeting Carbon. Your snap is crazy-awesome man, that thing is just phenomenal. It left some nicely sized welts aswell ^_^
  • The the first 3 rounds of the war, only getting hit 3 times. I have to say, hiding in a corner during TEAM DM is not a bad idea!
  • Dart-blowing dude taking us all down. He'd like hit me at the most random moments too!
  • Hitting Zeke over 5 times during TPB! Dude, its like my darts were heat synced to you or something (Sorry about that face shot again, I think that was one of my darts from Chano 2 back in June!)!
  • Cop-dude kicking us out, and expecting us to pack all our shit up in 20 min, AND talking out of his - on a rule that doesn't exist. What.
  • 40-1 DTC. WHAT.
  • Doing a backflip on the ground after face planting trying to hit demon lord. OW
  • Overall seeing a bunch of new nerfers, getting to meet em, and just playing together. Its nice having new blood being recognized in the Chicago scene.
  • Caffeine showing up 10 minutes after the war ended. Man, too bad you didn't come earlier, you probably could have persuaded that cop to let us stay! Nevertheless, you showed up, which is always nice.
  • Using a human-shield-inside-a box as a nice defense system. Julian, you should just bring a box to every war you go to, I'm sure someone else will appreciate it.

    Overall, awesome war! A couple rounds were a little wacky, unfair, and over all fun which is nice. Can't wait till another war!

Something along the lines that we couldn't play with toys/toy guns. Lame.
