Last summer, Valhalla aside, the wars were Friday evenings, from midnight to 3am if I recall correctly. Cost was (usually) $4-5/person.
Due to the way events were scheduled, wars were (and I suspect will be) only capable of being announced about 7-10 days before they were/are held.
Please post if you are able/willing to attend such wars, and if you are interested in possibly paying more/person to rent out to arena during more common nerfing hours and for a longer span of time.
If it matters, the most significant rules used are as follows
Stock darts only (decreased risk of a stray round breaking a light bulb, etc.)
No singled blast bazookas, Titans, or anything of the ilk.
+Bows are also banned, but because of their length and the narrow corridors, you probably wouldn't wanna use them anyway, xbows are almost too long. In these arenas, range doesn't just take a back seat to RoF, it rides in the trunk. The raider was not available when we used them last, but I suspect they would be devastating here.
To alleviate the confusion regarding the date of the war, additional information is required.
The way this works is as follows;
Any evening for which some other organization has decided to rent out the facility is (generally) offered to me/the group. Any other organization is given first priority, as we are being given a reduced rate (for a handful of reasons, which do not need to be listed here). Typically, the wars are arranged by the owner calling me to notify me that a given Friday night is available, or I call and ask about a given Friday night. They tell me "yes," and I immediately post (in the past, it was on a Facebook group, but I'll be posting here as well, since these will be open to the NIC) as such, alerting the group. Everyone available then shows up at the designated facility (we have two available) and time with cash in hand. I collect, pay the manager o duty, and after signing waivers, we head off to start nerfing.
The biggest issue lies in our inability to know, with great foresight, that any given evening will be available more than about 7-10 days notice. So my inquiry is basically to see how many people are willing and able to attend a war, on a Friday night, on short notice, throughout the summer. Last summer our average attendance was 28.9 people/war, and average cost was $6/person.
