I feel sorry for those of you who missed this, because you missed out on an absolutely Effeminate war at a sweet venue. Pics should soon follow.

+Screaming Leeroy Jenkins and fail-rushing the opposing team.
+Effeminate Truck
+Getting a disk launcher kill
+My Crossbow's Equilox seeking darts.
+My Crossbow working and hitting crazy long ranges with pinpoint accuracy.
+Getting a DTB and using it in Zombies
+Getting some awesome kills during Zombies
+None of my guns breaking
+Getting quite a few kills in a row with my 1500.
+Meeting lots of new people and putting names to faces
+My SM3k working and proving to be a force at close quarters.

-HOT! It was in the mid to high 90's if not hotter. I drank a few gallons of water, entire water bottles and sometimes even more were downed between rounds. Sweat + salt = unpleasant, especially when it gets in your eyes. Equilox started having heat cramps despite having downed lots of water.
-Flying about 5 feet in zombies after being tackled after shooting someone... after someone had tagged me in the back.
-Getting multiple headshots during a round.
-My little brother's 2k breaking.
-Giving Equilox multiple welts with my Crossbow
-Ace of Nerf wossing out on us a couple hours early.

We're not discouraging people from joining a Nerf forum, we're discouraging them from joining this forum. It's an important distinction because, frankly, we don't give a shit. The Haven was created to escape the idiotic masses, now they're all here. -cxwq

I had a great time! Thanks for hosting, Ace and Tornado. It was good to meet for the first time/ see all of you guys (again).

+Cool park, lots of trees for shade and cover.
+Didn't get sunburned this time
+All my blasters worked pretty well, especially the MagSplat.
+Last man standing in HvZ! Thanks, Tornado.
+If it was Halo I would have had an Overkill medal in the HvZ round ★★★★ :blink:
+Got to use my flags.
+Found some good homes for some extra blasters I had.
+Tornado, please tell your dad "thank you" for me for picking up my sammich.
+Got most of my darts back.

-Sorry, had too much fun to say anything negative.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next time! I'll try to get something organized down here if anyone could make it.

Wow, I had a great time! Awesome venue, awesome blasters, awesome people!

+ Doing MUCH better that I thought I would.
+ All the cool game types we played, including Defend the Core and One Flag Push.
+ My K9 Special tribute knockoff getting a fair amount of praise.
+ Most of my previously un-field-tested guns working fairly well.
+ Finally meeting some other members of the NIC.
+ Getting to hold a crossbow (such as it was) for the first time, as well as seeing everyone elses' cool mods.

- The heat, my God the heat!
- My Titan shotgun not performing as well as I'd have liked.
- The fact that the SOF team couldn't come to see how we do!

All in all I can't wait for the next one! When can we see the group pic?

Good time, failed guns.

Pros:
Collective and Keith letting my borrow their guns throughout the day
Spray and pray, nuff said
Getting to talk to people that don't think nerf is stupid
Getting a clear maverick
Seeing new and familiar faces
Collective's K9 special is Effeminate, if anyone that reads this can make one asap pm me


Cons:
Leaving early
All my guns broke
Playing defend the core 3 v 5, not easy shooting 5 people with 2 shots :P
Being the youngest

Once I get a k9 special I'm hosting another kansas war. Probably around labor day weekend.

Effeminate war, probably in the number one slot for me.

Pros:
+ The turnout was pretty good, got to meet some new people
+ Winning capture the flag variations for my team twice (Kudos Kieth on the flags.)
+ Homestarune had extra guns for me
+ There was shade, lots of it!
+ Effeminate Truck

Cons:

- I was halted by severe heat cramps
- Homestarune's Cross bow seemed to nail me every time (I may have been the only one shot by it?)
- My guns failed again except for my improved shotgun, it was perfect.
- Heat Baby!


The worst shot I sustained was to the palm, I was holding a pistol at the time, here is a pic of how much space was available,

It was worth the pain! Effeminate gun Homestarune!

Great war SOF guys, you missed out!
