Would you guys have any problem with me bringing my Doomsayer which I plan to tone down to about 70' ranges?

I personally have no problem with Doomsayers shooting 100'. From my experience, Silencer doesn't really ban guns unless they're unsafe. Doomsayers =/= unsafe.

Ok, so I'm a definite unless there's a morning practice on Sat, which there shouldn't be. I still don't have a working primary though and am trying to come up with something. RSCB 2K is leaking and Max is reconstituted, but won't cock. I bought a pump shotty and an estimated 1950's pre-Nerf shotgun thingy that looks pretty cool, dunno how well it can be modded yet, still in the mail.

Skitzo, where the hell were you? You really missed out on the fun.

Highlights:
Meeting Silencer, Twitch (no not that Twitch), and the group of 11 year olds that said they were 13...
The shield game type being quite successful.
Not having my RFSG break at all
My captain slug breech not failing on me
3/15 Team Death match with pistols/stock guns on the playground
Finding at least 600 darts with Cheesy after everyone went home
Taking one of the teams of two during Shield death match
Hitting Cheesy in the elbow while he was trying to hide behind a tree from 50ft
Hand warmers and Hot Coco

Negatives:
The fucking cold...
Z80 nailing me in the head with a Nat geo gun shooting mega darts
DX nailing me in the head with an insane PAS while I was running from him
Teams were unbalanced in some rounds


I will edit more in, but I think I need to take a nap.

I just realized that I forgot to post a "Post-War-Reaction" so here it goes...



Highlights:


- Getting hit twice with an Atom Blaster during the pistol rounds on the playground.

- The pistol round on the playground. It was definitely one of my favorite rounds. I also liked the "Defend The Flag" type game

- Meeting certain Nerfers for the first time (silencer, Zack's friends, and a few little children).

- My Effeminate dual with DX in which I fired all 6 of my arrows, via Arrowstorm, and still ended up missing him and as a result, getting shot by him.

- Using a L+L without any darts to simply intimidate members of the other team, then being forced to dive inside a tiny plastic castle and fire off my Lightnin' Blitz, only to realize that 3/5 of the darts had already fallen out.

- Getting shot by Z80 with his Maxshot at least 5 times in a row (all in under 2 minutes) before realizing that we were playing 3:15 and that I should have been out 2 lives before.

- Finding a lot of darts at the end of the war.



Lowlights:


- Having the internal coupler on my BBB fall off.

- The majority of the first half of the war due to the lack of mobility and more specifically, feeling, in my hands and feet.

- Shooting DX in the face...twice in a row....during the "Defend The Flag" type game. Sorry :blush:



Also, I would highly recommend bringing hand warmers to any cold war you plan to attend. Stuff them inside your gloves and boots/shoes and they will keep you warm all day.

War's over, and it's postmortem time! Interesting bits coming your way!

- Berserker Fusion! Daikaiju! not functioning at all!
- RIDICULOUS COLD. Got frostnip on my left hand after ten minutes of play.
- Stevens army rolling out four-deep. Z80, Non-NIC Twitch, Noodles, holla.
- No gun breakages!
- Rapid prototyping the Shields game! See below.
- Slept through a train and missed one more...
- Kicking ass with a Pirates of the Caribbean pistol!
- Hanging with the Stevens crew, Cheesy, Lucian, DX, Silencer, et al
- Totally failing yet again to nail down a trade with Lucian

I want to give the Shields game type some special attention. We tested it out in a few rounds - two with one life, two with one life where you had to kneel as you counted, and a pistol round. Here's what I observed:
- Standoffs ended naturally. Players realized quickly that unless they were spread out, they would never land two hits.

- Standoffs weren't totally eliminated, since players were reluctant to take the first shot. Players who were confident in their accuracy or just reckless broke the ice by landing a hit or charging.

- Teamwork went through the roof. Players organized themselves into 'fire teams' or buddied up before rushes.

- Strategy came into play very prominently. Long-ranged players had to coordinate with short-ranged players so the latter could clean up after the former landed a shot.

- Gameplay proceeded slowly at first, then got faster as players were eliminated. The last player on a team had an impossible time.

- Short-ranged blasters, pistols, and melee weapons became really powerful. Players could continue their rush even if they were shot, and hitting someone at 10 feet could make or break a play. I cleaned up half a team using an Arrowstorm and a Warlock, and Jeff took down a few guys with an Atom Blaster!

- Players were confused about barrel taps, and we couldn't decide how to handle them. This part needs some work in the future.

- The kneeling thing was interesting, but dropping to one knee on frozen earth was torture. We ended this round quickly.

- Players still needed some time to adjust to the game. Many players' primaries took too long to reload, and players were unaccustomed to the type of strategy and teamwork needed to score kills.

- The general consensus was that Longshots would be super-weapons in this style. None of us actually brought a Longshot, so this went untested.

Bear in mind that the temperatures were EXTREMELY FUCKING COLD, which cut players' accuracy, and more importantly, reload speed. I'd definitely try this game mode when it gets warmer and players are encouraged to bring high-ROF blasters.
