cat·a·clysm
n.
1. A violent upheaval that causes great destruction or brings about a fundamental change.
2. A violent and sudden change in the earth's crust.

I'm posting this a few months in advance to see if we can create the biggest Midwest war to date. We're trying to rival Armageddon and Apocalypse. I'd be happy to get half as many.

When:

Saturday, April 17th, 2010 - 10:00 AM - exhaustion, or around 5-6 PM
Arrive at no later than 9:45 AM. First round start at 10:00 AM.

Where:*

Lake Ellyn Park
645 Lenox Road, Glen Ellyn, IL
*Location subject to change

What to bring:
-Your "A" game
-A good attitude
-At least one primary, preferably two if your's breaks.
-Spring powered single-shot pistol.
-Darts, a lot of them
-Eye Protection, if you're not wearing any, you don't play
-Lunch and water. There are a few places within driving distance in downtown Glen Ellyn. However it would be much easier to bag a lunch.
-Proper attire. I don't want to see some douche bags showing up in camouflage or I will personally beat you down and tell you to leave. It's also going to be April, which can be cold/rainy sometimes. Dress appropriately.

What not to bring:
SLINGSHOT WEIGHTED DARTS
-Slug darts or stock ammo only. No exceptions.
-Pump plugged blasters with airtanks larger than a Mega Missile. You must have a working OPRV otherwise.
-Anything else will be determined on a case-by-base basis determined by the hosts.
-Blasters that are painted black will be tossed in the lake. And that means RFDGs, and PASs. Put some bright colored tape on them or paint them a different color. Extremely bright blasters will be encouraged. We don't want any problems with the police.
-Kids who are ≤13 years old must have their parent(s) present.

Miscellaneous Information:
-Barrel tapping is not allowed.
-If you are being a douchebag I will ask you to leave.
-Please clean up after yourselves, we will be in a public park.
-Melee weapons will be allowed all gametypes except for Team Powerball and Defend the Core. Oversized melee shit will be banned. Use common sense, this is a Nerf war.
-Please refrain from yelling obscenities, we do not need the attention.

Shield Rules:

We'll be testing out our new shield rules for this war. You'll be limited on the size of your shield depending on what blaster you're wielding. Here is the breakdown..

Melee = 3 sq/ft
Single shot pistol, ranges < 50' - 2 sq/ft
Anything else, ranges <50' - 1 sq/ft
Blasters shooting over 50' will not be allowed to use a shield.

Shields can be made from whatever, cardboard should be reinforced with duct tape.

Round Schedule:
Arrive at no later than 9:45 AM. We will go over basic rules and safety. We will begin playing at 10:00. If you're not there and ready to go at 10:00, you'll miss the first round.

10:00 AM - Capture the Flag and/or variants

11:00 AM - Territories

12:00 PM - Dart Sweep/Lunch

1:00 PM - VIP

2:00 PM - Team Powerball - Best of 3 rounds, 15 minutes each

3:00 PM - Dart Sweep

3:15 PM - Defend the Core (2 cores) - Best of 3 rounds, 15 minutes each

4:30 PM - Carpe testiculum (Seize the balls)

5:30 PM - Dart Sweep, End of war

Click on the links for rules.

BEFORE YOU LEAVE - Clean up all your shit and help pick up darts.

I don't want to lose the priviledge of nerfing at this location by littering the park with nonbiodegradable foam. Same thing goes with trash. I'm going to bring garbage bags to set up near the staging area. Please be courteous. We have several backup locations if we need to move.

Attendees: (12-13 + x)

I was terrified that this would be during spring break, which would mean I wouldn't be there.

However, this is the first weekend of spring quarter. So fucking there.

I'm really hoping to hit a few of the nearby wars this coming spring before my 3rd child arrives in May (due on Mother's day if you can believe it). This war falls on the day right before my birthday, so that gives me a little leverage with the wife - and knowing that you're trying to make this one as big as possible makes me really want to attend so I can see what a big outdoor war is really all about. The Chicago area is only a few hours away, so getting there won't be a big issue.

I guess I'm saying put me down as a maybe - and hopefully we can change that to a definite sometime between now and then. As for now, I'll really need to get cracking to make sure I have some worthy primaries and a healthy supply of darts before then.

Well I am a maybe as of now, never know whats going to come up. By the way is the name of the war a reference to the new expansion pack to World of Warcraft coming out soon?

Don't worry so much about what other people will allow. Throw your own wars and kick your friends' asses until they all want one.

No, it was chosen to continue the tradition of naming wars after end-of-the-world events; i.e. Armageddon, Apocalypse. World of Warcraft is retarded.

I'd consider making the trip if you didn't have a rule that banned all my darts. :P

If you're not willing to make a few washer darts for a war in April, we don't want you there anyways.

Hopefully by this point the U3 will have its active arsenal at the ideal we've discussed and TEAM MAXFORCE can fully take the field.

Honestly, I don't see how that's a problem considering this war is quite a few months away. Also, are you really going to let darts step in the way of having a great time?

Anyways, I hope this produces a nice turnout. If anyone has any questions or suggestions to the current game types, feel free to tell us.

Would a pump plugged Berserker be banned?, because without plugging it the blaster only gets 70-75 feet.

As in the Big Blast portion of the blaster? No, it's essentially a 4B.

Chalk me down as a maybe, but I'll change status closer to war date, naturally.

Just to clarify, it looks like the original post says NOT to bring plugged 4Bs. Due to the post above, this isn't the case?

Doing this as I speak. I have no idea when I got it...my DAD got it some 15 years ago, but that doesn't matter. Anyways, it keeps jerking around all over the place. I try to hold it with a rag...It doesn't look like...much.

I just don't want to be embarrased if I bring blasters with silicone appendages zip tied to them.

Uhm, CA13 if we're going to try to keep our language clean and there may be parents at this thing I'd suggest leaving the sex toys off your blasters.
