--------------------------------------
CLASH OF STEEL (BETA)
--------------------------------------
A Pittsburgh Nerf Clans Trial War
--------------------------------------

Hosted By: Me, karpenter63, jwasko, and sublimedom777.
Description: For the first time ever, two clans of Pittsburgh shall finally clash IN AMERICA. This is the idea behind CoS, that is, development of team work and strategy with in the clan group. CoS normally will be geared toward consistan team based warring. This trial (or Beta) of this kind of warring is intended to acquaint all members of both clans or those visiting us with each other, then test how the clans war together in a strictly team based clan war, and finally discover our limitations for the future. All before a real clash; Coming soon.
All are welcome! Please join us though because anyone could always use some help in making a great war. The more the merrier (to a point). Hopefully, this war will do its part to promote “getting out and nerfing” (especially before the season ends) and any and all nerfers are welcome to join it in doing so. As much as team work and strategy building are a part, it’s still all about fun. So come have some.

I got a fever, and the only prescription, is MORE CLASH!

I like clashing, yes I do.
Attend Clash and you can too!

In other words, I'm in, now everyone else can feel less awkward about RSVP-ing.

Nothing going on that day as of right now so if non-clan members are allowed I should be able to make it. Just need to find some FBR and make a bunch of darts.

Are you sure you won't be in Myrtle Beach?

I'm kidding man. It'll be awesome to have you. I'll probably have extra Darts from Dennis FBR if needed.

To clarify: Yes, everyone's welcome.

Why is this war starting at noon instead of the traditional 10:00 AM? I'm not bitching (prefer it this way since I'll have to leave ~2 hours before the start of the war), just wondering.

Good question. As much as I like the 10am standard start time, I moved it to noon due to the fact that a large portion of the Steel City Nerf clan (4-5) won't arrive until 2. Since this war was supposed to be a chance for PAN and SCN (the two Pgh. clans) to meet and play each other, I wanted to leave enough time after the late arrivals for this to happen. I showed up around 2:30 to a pittsburgh war that had started at 10 and when I got there I only got to play 3 or so rounds because everyone was tired. I don't want this to happen to 4 good nerfers. Plus, we could always use more rest to make the war that much more energetic.

War Tour Part 2: includes Play Areas 2 and 3

Edit for Population Note: You'll notice no one is in really any of these photos. At 5 o'clock on a Sunday (when I took these) no one was in the park except some skater kiddies on the staging area, which we'll have taken over much earlier. Later in the evening on a weekday when Sublimedom checked it out it was empty. His friend works at the park and reported that even in the afternoon or at prime times for visiting the park, it is still relatively empty. It's a new venue but it should be fine seeing as we'll be there early to ward off civilians.

I indeed did hardcore stake this park out, thrice one Saturday, and I try to pop in each time I pass it (which is often, as it's just over the hill from my house). Each time I've gone there were graduation parties in some stage of progress, but the party-goers rarely venture past the basketball courts. Also, the average non-grad-party population tends to average below one group per visit. Considering these stats, and the size of the park, we should be okay. We'll likely not be bothered by an inopportune grad party, nor (more importantly) shall we bother them.

The park looks like a great place to play.

I still haven't found any satisfactory foam so I'm going to try making some darts out of the crappy thin stuff from Lowe's and wrapping electrical tape around them so they'll fit my guns. If that doesn't work I'll have to borrow (pay to use) some darts from somebody.

My mom will be coming with me because she isn't comfortable with me driving 80 minutes by myself.

I hope its as sweet as it seems to be. I just got my Dennis foam, stickers, and washers in from McMaster today. I don't know how many I'll make before Saturday, but if you want details on their size to see if they'll work for you and want to borrow some, PM me. And thats cool if your mom is coming. I've gotten plenty of rides to wars from my mother. She can hang out at the park or I'm sure there's places to visit in the area for the day.

I too have been a busy boy making darts. I bought 100' of black from a local hardware store. Seems a tad tight in cpvc, but you'd be welcome to use some if it suits you.


Also, I hear murmurings of rain on Saturday. I have no qualms whatsoever for Nerfing in the rain. In fact, I look forward to it!

I shall see ye on yon battlefield!

I just got up. Have to get a shower, toss the darts in a duffel bag and make a lunch and then I'm hitting the road around 10:15 or so. See you all in a few hours.

I also had a great time guys, and I really think you should do another one before the foul weather sets in.

noteworthy things I want to mention:
-getting shot in the face five times by relatively high powered guns
-not banning any guns (awesome)
-only having one gun break
-don't doing as badly as I thought I would
-seeing that ten year old kid call some other kid a pussy for running away and then lighting a cigarette with me after we'd been eliminated. That was so messed up.
-Dom's maximizer.
-nerfmonkey's t-shirt
-the guy with the bow and arrow. That guy had mad stones nerfing like hell with a pull and release gun that shot forty feet angled. He seemed to fair pretty well after I loaned him my 2K.
-all the amazingly effective accessories,
-Seeing nick (I think that was his name) shoot some kid with a a brassed bbb from 7 feet away after the kid shot him in the back while he was respawning.
-Everyone liked my foam.
-learned that a RFSG spring fits in the raider and gives great results. I've changed my mind about that gun. It definitely has a place in outdoor wars.

All in all I think it was a great war despite the few rounds that were a little unorganized and crowded. That park is awesome, but I really wish we could have played a round on the playground. Thanks for hosting guys, I really hope we do it again.

Seeing as a few of our attendees are only reachable on here, I just wanted to thank everyone before this thread officially dies.
You guys made the war. I told others and I'll tell all of you that this war went beyond my highest hopes. I had no idea there'd be such great play and such great rounds for what I thought would be a little local war. And the numbers we had for something thrown together kind of late were amazing. I just looked over my attendance sheets and there may have been 20 nerfers in attendance. Not bad. Everyone played really well and was cool about everything. Everyone respected the park, the civilians, and the boundaries set. I really can't wait to start planning next year's Clash of Steel and can't wait to see if we get some more nerfers to come to Pittsburgh. All the rounds (minus those "the 12 year old smokers") were played well and rarely turned into big clusterfucks. Special thanks to NerfMonkey and flamin for making the drives out to join us.

Great things about Clash of Steel:
-A skilled large base of local nerfers to start, with others in the region to join
-A great venue that had different playing areas and great terrain and cover to make things interesting and get CTF to actually work for once. Locally, its the best I've played on.
-jwasko's and I's mobstactles success and effective use by others
-A large amount of good, long range, modified guns
-A relaxed day of nerfing with not a ton of rounds or different gametypes, but good solid ones with relaxation times in between. Usually down time is a waste, but in this case, I think it gave everyone the energy to play well the next round. And they did.
-A Maximizer, a Crossbow, and enough BBBBs and At2Ks to make your head snap to see what just almost took your eye out.
-The fact that this was only a trial war, and it may have been my favorite local war yet.
-The fact that there's going to be one next year on a day that everyone isn't moving into college, working, or going to concerts. Think mid-august. Should be big. However next year theres an amendment to Banned Items: No 12-year old smokers or frisbee punks.

If I may, I personally rate this war 10 foam swords to the neck out of 10 possible. It's hard to think back to PAN's first "war" (used in the loosest sense of the word) and realize the way we've grown in these few months to be able to even fathom participating on this level. Crazy.
