+ Pumpbow was amazing.
+ Classes were good.

- Endless mosquitoes.
- No one would buy my Supermaxx 3000....

Looking forward for the next one.

This war was absolutely fantastic. Kudos to Hummer and Loueic3 for making the war so awesome.

+The giant dart stash
+Singled longshot tore shit up in meatgrinder
+Musical Backpack
+Mobstacles were incredibly nice
+Being the last man alive and being chased by a horde of zombies around the battlefield, almost into the parking lot, and through the staging area before finally getting tagged
+Realizing how awesome clips were on high powered guns
+Using a crossbow and an AT3K of doom for the first time
+Seeing Carbon's wildfire, extreme nostalgia for me
+Seeing the Pumpbow
+Getting rid of a lot of shit
+Getting some more cool shit
+Kane's bow was sweet
+/- Being an engineer and magically having a dart go through the shield and straight into my nuts
+/- Classes were awesome, but need tweaking
+Awesome field
+"It smells like peanuts!"
+Massive turnout
-I probably have more welts from mosquito bites than from darts, and I got shot a lot
-Really hot and humid
+/- Doing an accidental powerslide while running for the group photo
+Meeting and nerfing with familiar faces again, and meeting new people
-Louiec3 raping his thumb
-Megahamps didn't work all that well because of the trees
+The lanyards were a nice touch
+Starting later in the day

Hummer and Louie - I don't know if I can host this summer, but come this fall, I can start hosting again if you guys want to take a break from hosting for a while.

Raw footage from 2 rounds up:

Attack/Defend R2, VIP, and Carpe Testiculum were all 15 min videos and also 2-300 MB so neither youtube nor the Ning will accept the raws.

I can't really say much beyond what has already been said, it was pretty nice overall, despite the heat/mosquito's the location was pretty good, but the mobstacles made it better by far. Just like any first run the classes need adjusting, if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to PM me.

I'll try and get the next MANO planned in a week, as I have a crapload of work to do this week.

Thank you all for coming, as always, and see you next time!

He parkours over flat land while yelling tactical orders at no one. Demon Lord is the most legit ballsy nerfer of all time.

Dear god, the +bow sounds like a freakin' shotgun, with the sound conducting right through the frame like that...

+Wasn't the only one to bring cover. I believe thats a first for any war that I've been to.
+Fanboys
+Convincing Carbon to make a bow of his own
+Successfully abused the medic/engineer classes
-Those really should be changed up a bit.
+Got to use my Monolith for the first time at a war
-Low tree branches made lobbing impossible, and made the monolith fairly pointless
+My megahamp didn't hurt anyone.
-Ryan's cart HAMP diddled louic3s hand.
-Zorn locked his keys in his car. To his credit, the transmitter dongle failed.
+Cops got him in
-Zorn going to pizza shuttle before the war
+Zorn warning us that we had the address for pizza shuttle
+A particularly awesome friend going on NH for me to get the correct address.
+Mobstacles still provide great cover despite being super-jenky
-Mobstacles are getting progressively more messed up, making setup more time consuming.
-Crossroads takes 1/2 hour to make 3 sandwiches, helping us miss HvZ
+I forgot 6" of sub sandwich in Ryan's glove box (again). I wonder if he's found it yet.
+Dart recovery was decent, despite looking terrible around dinner. Lots of ballvalve chewed darts, mostly from us.
+Never needed an ammo sack, just picked up darts off the ground. Conveniently located dart bucks were sometimes on the ground.

PS. Yes, Zorn's +boid sounds frightening on the video
