Just checking in for the LoS. Looks like Tam and Gabe aren't going to make this one. I might be able to make it for a round or two, but I'm not sure as of right now.

Have fun and nerf on if I don't manage to make it.
Viva La Seno, eh?

We managed to go this whole thread with only one "Viva la SENO"? I guess I won't have to visit the Angry Dome after all. Hope to see you there, Myster E (if that IS your real name).

I guess I should break my vow of silence haha. E's right, I won't be around for this SENO unfortunately. Don't write me off though, I'll be back.

However, I am selling two of my primaries to anyone who wants them at the war. If someone buys, I will arrange for the blasters to be delivered at the war. You guys have first pickings before I put up a trading thread.

-LBB: excellent condition, singled, 1/2" cpvc, 12" dogbone 1/2"cpvc nested in 1/2"pvc barrel, red iron sight hotglued to front (asking $15)
-LS: good condition, AR removed, post still in, 5 magazines included (one is a little faulty), all streamline darts I have left also included (asking $20)

If you are interested, please drop me a PM so we don't spam this thread. We can negotiate over PM.

I hope the war goes well! Viva la SENO.

Looks like it's going to be pretty cold that day. Make sure you dress appropriately.

EDIT- Does anyone have a +bow spring I could buy at the war?

I chuckle at your idea as to what constitutes "cold." And I have a plusbow spring for you. $4?

A'ight, ladies. See ya in the morning. Rounds we'll be doing: CtF variant, FFA, deathmatch, gunslinger. All with pistol variants. Bring water and your A-game. Zax is gonna be a little late, so I'll be getting the ball rolling at ten.

Well.... my feet hurt.

Highlights
-Being the second ones there and having to wait a bit... not much of a problem
-Freaking COLD. Everyone's hands were freezing. It warmed up later though. (and at SOFA we complained about the heat)
-Tam coming to play for a round and delivering my new LBB (thanks man)
-Not starting with a traditional FFA... but it doesn't matter that much
-Freaking COLD.

-Alright, so I've quite "leveled up." All day I was getting great hits, great dodges, and being able to face the likes of Zax and rork and get a hit. After four wars, I'm finally a vet.
-Only using my trusty BBB... and it's all I ever need. It never misfired, nothing broke, fired accurately consistently, and it got some good comments.
-First wingman round... survived with my dad as the second to last team. When my dad got out, it was only Zaxbys and Josh left. It was like my worst nightmare. After taking my 2nd life with that damn serpentine pattern, Josh took it alone to take out my last life. Just as I aimed and almost shot, he pulled the trigger and hit me right in the gum. I bled a little, but it was an awesome way to end a round.
-Ben getting a gash from an AC. Ouch.
-Ian coming in the middle of the day and playing some rounds
-"diddle anything that moves." "Even the crickets?" "Yes, [even] the crickets."
-The SNAPs on the field were great
-Nick bringing some fresh blood, Mark.
-Mark got two hits on my in an FFA, so I got rather ticked, rush, and shot him.
-In fact, Mark played pretty darn well for his first war
-Getting some Effeminate jump dodges over darts when Nick had his 1500
-Pop Tart
-CTF was sort of fail, but we know that we shouldn't really play it at Langford.
-So this was the last round... I was sneaking up on my dad to shoot him in the back, when suddenly Ben, who had disappeared until then, shot around the corner and shot me with that damn big blast from like 5 feet. After expressing my agony with a loud "DAMN", I semi-limped toward the fence. Guess it's revenge from FANO haha
-Subway for lunch, and exchanging some shots afterward with Pheylan
-I am never being a team captain. I can't pick people or give orders for shit.
-Josh doing his own thing and crawling under the portables... plus duel-wielding big blasts
-Josh also got a face shot on Pheylan... it probably hurt worse than my tooth/gum shot.
-Being called chickenwing
-My groin getting a good amount of stretching because I dodged the most darts by jumping over them... man, it takes its toll.
-3/7... or, rork, Zax, and Ben against everyone else with the 4/20 rule.
-Pistol rounds were fun and a great change of pace
-Minimal delay time between rounds and everything was well organized.
-Just talking to people about nerf was great.
-Drinking around 3 bottled waters and a Monster
-Hitting rork through the fence... the wind actually helped that time
-Wearing a Hawaiian shirt, but taking it off after it was disrupting my game... somehow
-Getting the last shot on Mark to win team deathmatch. I felt proud.
-Whenever rork or Zax said "Get 'em, chicken." I got 'em.
-Never got to play gunslinger, but we did a great amount of good rounds
-My dad playing very well
-I decided to waste one of my two lives and rush... I jumped around the corner and Josh and I shot each other. Shweet.
-Reloading my BBB so fast I almost never got rushed.
-Great sportsmanship all around
-realizing I have way too many highlights.

My dad got some pictures; should be up tonight or tomorrow.

So now I've got some stuff to work on. I need to fix my new LBB and my dad wants a "proper" primary. It will be fun...

Whoo. Finally home, some 450 round-trip miles later. This war was a great success. My highlights:

-Ben leveled up. Actual strategy+berserker energy? Win.
-Seeing Flyingchicken/Papa Chicken again. Always great sports and an asset to any war.
-Papa Chicken? Yeah, your name is now Papa Chicken.
-Poptart. whether this is a positive or a negative, I'll let the other attendees judge.
-Great guns. SNAPbows, decrapified BBBBs, and Umpshaplapa's awesome 1500 stood out. And Chicken's BBB.
-Discovering that my SNAP is unsuited to me, and switching back to my old standby, much to the chagrin of my opponents. Sorry 'bout that leg, chicken...
-Hitting Pheylan, while he was running, at a solid 100', with said Old Standby.
-Realizing that the Old STandby miiight be a tad overpowered. Just a tad.
-Smooth war. Little downtime, no one bleating for a Zombie round, no really harmful foolishness (as opposed to the kind that simply results in failure).
-Ben using my SNAP for exactly one round--and managing to break it. Gaaah.
-Losing some very exciting Full-Assed CtF rounds. Full-Assed CtF requires tweaking.
-Delicious sammiches, with delivery service. Thanks, parental type.
-Nice weather.
-Winning the last round of the day in style.
-Gracious winners/losers. I saw good sportsmanship all day.
-Zax.
-Tam dropping in for a round. Always a pleasure.
-Ian dropping in for a round. Ditto.
-No cold-related gun failures.
-Will add more as I think of 'em Thanks for the pics, Chicken.

ALSO: Everyone, post feedback, positive and negative: Had a problem? Let me know. Loved something? Ditto. Suggestions? Post 'em. April's WiNC war will benefit greatly from your input.

I slept the whole ride home.
Highlights:
-Couldn't feel my fingers early in the day
-Weather warming up
-Dart shrinkage messing on my dart/barrel bad
-My 1500 kicking ass even though my darts literally fell out of my barrels if I pointed the gun down and ran
-A good amount of my darts found
-None of my guns broke!
-Cold weather not messing with my air guns
-Getting a good amount of rounds in
-Calling chicken 200 different names except "flyingchicken"
-Nobody being a douche
-Not hitting anyone in the face!

I've already started making another 1500 turret, but this time 12 inches.

My highlight of the day: Last round, last kill. Me and Zax vs. Flyingchicken. He took a shot from a BBBB at about 50-60', and immediately came over to congratulate us. Nerfer of the day, right there.

Might as well recap too, even though I only played one round haha.

Highlights:
-Actually nerfing after 6 months in hiding. Great feeling!
-Checking out the new hardware. SE Nerf's come a long way.
-Seeing old faces and meeting a few new people.

You know what? Even though I was only there for 30 minutes and only played one round, just being there and seeing people (who would otherwise be total strangers) come together for the sole purpose of trading foam and having fun makes me really warm and fuzzy on the inside. You can bet I'll be back on the field when spring comes around. Until then, nerf on!
