Good news! I cemented a +1, and it is a dude from way back in this forum's past. Those who need to know, know.

Also? Thanks to Bags and Pants, expect shenanigans and escapades in equal portions.

I know I haven't been on this thing in what....a year? But yea, just putting in that I won't be attending, I'll kinda be in Serbia at that point (mission trip with church). First 'Geddon I'll miss since I started nerfing, I think. Otherwise I would offer to host Bob and company again, but alas that can't happen.

Have fun, take lots of pictures, and.....yea, I dunno what else there is to do besides have fun, so I'm just gonna stop semi-rambling now.

Last year it happened that I was using darts that were identical to another Nerfer's. This year I'm using green felt tipped slug darts, with fluorescent orange spray-painted backs.

I urge everyone to mark their darts with a bright color or other distinguishing characteristic. Not only do they mark them as yours, but they are also easier to find. If you don't have spray paint, acrylic paints should work well for marking the backs. I've seen people use white-out, and that's not too bad either, but I'd recommend marking them in a shape rather than just whiting out the entire back of the dart to make them more uniquely yours.

Alright, I've composed a list of everyone coming:
*list of people who've posted in the thread*
*Irrelevant arbitrary number*
These are all the definites, but we can expect a smattering of the maybe's.

^fixed.

Excuse me, I need to be a jackass for a min:

i really don't see the point of "prospective attendance lists" there is no such thing as "confirmed attendance" until the actual event happens and people have already begun the act of being present.

Over half of our Local Active Attendees don't even have NH Accounts, and thus can't post "i'll be there XD" or "Count me in!" and the like. Not to mention it doesn't fucking matter, this was to let people know about the event more than to "Know who exactly will be at said event"

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy that you're excited for this war, but There's no point tacking on a "we've got 22, and maybe a few more" to it.

Its Armageddon, it will be glorious no matter the amount of people that show up.

There, I feel much better getting that out of my system.

I had completely forgotten that it was summer, and that summer means Armageddon, and that I LIKE going to Armageddon.

I just looked it up and it's this Saturday and I can't come. This fucking sucks as I was looking forward to it.

Was I seriously the only person who's entire arsenal was composed of short range weapons?

On top of being the only dedicated suicide rusher.

Recap:

Rushing and Rushing and Ballin' and Rushin'.
Proving that is possible through sheer luck to survive by my self while rushing into everybody.

I hear you. I got robbed of my trip to SoCal last-minute as well. I don't even know if Bags got my message about not being able to make it before the war started today...

I hope everybody had a great time! I'll look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Thanks all for an frekin' awesome war!

my recap Pros:

~Even though i was gluing it up, and had never even fired a full clip through it my PAS, not only lasted the entire war, but got some ownage in too.
~Even though my gun broke some how, some way each war, i had the tools and supplies to field repair anything that broke and get back in the game.
~My first major nerf war was a full on war, and not one of the little skirmishes like what I'd host back in Utah.
~leaving the hotel room at Glendora's garden inn and suites to see 3 others loading Nerf guns into the back of a van and asking: Geddon?
~Having my ERTL PAS examined, admired, and even feared. I had to cross a lot of design issues, and work though a lot of problems to get that thing to work like it did. Thanks for the props.


Cons:

~Rolling my ankle during the first round, hobbling through the rest of the day, and probably spending the next week on the cruse layed up (not actually a bad thing) because i kept playing on it.
~watching in absolute horror as the barrel of my gun snapped off while attempting a barrel tap on someone with a sword. (it was straight from a samuri movie)
~using # 8 washers for steffan weights when i should of been using #6 and having the hot glue jam up in my pistol splat.
~Being naive enough to think 70 Steffans would be enough.
~Probably won't be able to attend every year! Lame.

Awesome war everyone, today was great. I'm not one for a pros and cons list, but there were not many cons anyways. It was definitely cool seeing Shmmee at the hotel before the war.

Wow, we haven't done any recaps in a while.

Highlights
-Trigger repair on the Hulk Pump Shotty working perfectly
-TEAM HOPPER(clips)! That was absolute devastation in the last round.
-Kazu shooting me in the face with my own 3K then breaking off my classy wooden pump handle (on accident).
-Captain Seventies and his short shorts.
-Watching the video of jakejagan do his "gangsta shot", I'm sad I missed the real thing.
-The general awesomeness of everyone that showed up.
-Glad we didn't play Garden Party, because we would have all been done about an hour earlier (it's so tiring).
-I only ended up taking one picture with my camera, but got plenty with Bags. Plus, plenty of HD video. Yum yum.

That's good enough, hope everyone had a great time.

Quality war. I had a good time.
  • Hoppers, man. Hoppers.
  • I am now the proud owner of the Pokémizer.
  • My +1 showed up and had a good time.
  • I had enough darts for two people, and they were all slugs that performed well, were easy to find, and mostly recovered.
  • 4B and +bow performing consistently, and consistently well, all day.
  • Cool people, for the most part.
  • "THAT'S THE BEST INVENTION SINCE SPRAY MAYONNAISE."
  • Having Tony on my team for the first time ever.
  • Good volume of people for the games we played.
  • Capture the flag was almost as fun as last year's game.
  • Upstairs AND downstairs.
Axelion, I hope you don't mind I'm posting your one picture. I like it a lot.

Thanks to everyone for a good time.
