Looking good. Couple suggestions:


Barrel tapping should be allowed, but needs to be a legit barrel tap, meaning:
  • Your blaster should be loaded and primed
  • A "light tap". If your barrel has exposed brass, aluminum, any sharp material, you should not be barrel tapping.
  • Once you LIGHTLY tap your opponent, you must shoot into the ground, to prove your blaster was ready to fire.
Also, I know litersize happened to take some pictures. I'm sure hes more than willing to let us use em, so you could post that in the main thread.

Also, banning BBs might be ridiculous. I think we should allow bbs, just no hotglue tips.


Anyways, looking good. If you need help with hosting, just ask.

lolz. I like how you directly copied this from my thread.

Anyway, I'm curious to see pictures of the location; once again Google Maps images are lame.

I'm a maybe at this point, but mostly likely I won't be able to make it.

I like the idea, but this is way too short notice. Move it to May 8th maybe?

Short notice, yes, but I wouldn't mind a war next weekend. Also, your barrel tapping policy actually makes sense, which I've never seen before.

Also, I think most people would consider a bb underneath a felt tip to be a slug dart, so I don't know if that's an issue. That said, I don't understand why anyone would do that, as a washer is an easier solution.

I'll try to drag some people into this. I don't see why 1 week notice is too little for a local war.

I did indeed take a day some time ago scouting various locations! This was what I found there:

A good amount of hills and there's that playground, too.

No need to "+x" me, my occasionally nerfing friends are extremely unlikely to want to drive that far for a war. But I'm definitely down for the 22nd.

The rule will stay the same, regardless of the users who could not attend. Any other discussion of this can be PM'ed to me. Slugs Only

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.

Just a reminder, add this date on your calendar if you haven't already. The war is only 2 1/2 weeks away.

Alright, this war is looking good. Hopefully we have long rounds with little to no dead time.


Time to go make some darts.

Quick change: I might actually be able to attend in the morning! But is it alright if I use single BB glue domes? I don't have the materials to make slugs (my change in schedule is a new development, so I never ordered the materials to make darts), and they're also more durable and significantly lighter than slugs to address any concerns.

I'll probably bring the U3 bucket of slugs. So you can use some of those.

Also, any interest in a mobstacle party between now and the war (or at least now and CHANO)?
