Where: Greefield Park { 12035 W Greenfield Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53214 }
Staging Area: Picnic Area #5

Attending:
Ryan201821
Ice Nine
Louiec3
Edible Autopsy
Carbon
iPod
jamesthefisherman94's Friend and dad (?)
Demon Lord
Kanethemediocre
Range Eclipse

Maybes:
Stark
Mehku

Car 'sploded:
Daniel Beaver
Didn't notice the edited won't be attending:
Noodleownz

What to bring:

+ At least one primary
+ At least 1 pistol for the pistol rounds
+ Melee Weapon if preferred. Must be 2-4 feet long and less than 1 ft wide
+ Enough ammo ( About 125-200 darts for your primary, and about 100 darts for your sidearm(s))
+ Eye protection is mandatory for players under the age of 18
+ A bag lunch with plenty of water or some other type of drink. Don't bring perishable foods. You have been warned.
+ Extra water, I will have water on site, as always, but bring your own too.
+ Some money for buying/selling, etc.
+ Appropriate clothing.
+ A change of clothes
+ If you can bring mobstacles, feel free to bring them

What not to bring:

- Anything besides Slugs/stock ammo is probably a bad idea
- Singled and Plugged Titans; Plugged Titans must be shotgunned to at least three barrels
- Big Blasts that are both singled and plugged.
- LBBs
- National Geographic Guns
- Signal Launchers
- Anything that could be mistaken for a real weapon
- Just use your head

Relevant Information:

~ About crappy darts: PLEASE pick up mangled/bad stefans and toss them in the bad dart box that will be provided. These can cause serious personal injuries if fired at someone.

~ We will be following the West Coast standards laid forth in Badger's etiquette thread (stickied, please read it).

~ Try to not curse too loudly

~ Don't be afraid to ask questions! The only dumb question is the one not asked.

~ Anybody is welcome to attend, including family and friends. Said people should be 13 years of age or older.

~ If any guns have any sharp or pointy objects on it, try and duct tape it down. This is mainly for Toaster boy.

~ I am unsure if the bathrooms will actually be open this time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Semi)New to this war:

3 Classes for certain matches:
+ Spartan ~ Only person allowed a shield (which I will provide), Only allowed a provided warlock

+ Medic ~ Can make respawn shorter on Teammates, pistol only

+ Engineer ~ Can move his own mobstacle, if the mobstacle is shot with a missle, arrow or hit with a melle weapon, the engineer is dead.

- All 3 may not achieve objectives, have a longer respawn and only 1 per team

~ If there is too much negative feedback on these classes, we will adjust
them or just abolish them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Schedule: (An Astrix means this is a class game)
Special note: This is almost NEVER followed exactly

10:00 ~ Get there/set up

10:30 ~ Skirmish (meatgrinder/immortal/whatever-the-term-is)

11:00 ~ Wing-man Pistols

11:30 ~ Team Deathmatch*

12:00 ~ VIP*

12:30 ~ King

1:00 ~ Dart-Sweep

1:15 ~ Zombiez*

1:45 ~ Capture the flag

2:15 ~ Seize the balls*

2:45 ~ Attack/Defence*

3:15 ~ Defend the core*

3:45 ~ Dinner break/dart sweep/Group picture

4:15 ~ Free for all pistols

4:45 ~ Zombiez*

5:00 ~ Pictures / Trading / End

FYI, we've already definitely planned on having Chano 4.0 on October 9th. I'dreally like to try and make this war, as well as coming with "mobile nerf enterprises".

Also, sunset in October usually is around 6:00 PM, so I think a traditional scheduled war would make more sense.

So I'm pretty much a definite if not the 9th.

3/0 Fishing Weight stefans are the heaviest stefans allowed.


I'm probably coming anyways with the exact same qualifiers as Ryan but I am not a fan of this. Why not just use the Super Effeminate stash?

You should change the engineer's shield to be extremely large and bulky instead. That way it limits their mobility as opposed to turning them into a moving shield for all the rest of their teammates. It would also make engineer/medic less round breaking and the spartan more useful.

Also probably give the spartan a larger shield while we're at it.

I have no problem with any of the dates.

Like Ryan said the sun won't be up at 8pm in October, so I would vote for the regular 10-5 deal.

I have to agree with Zeke. There is no reason we should allow anything other than slugs. Hot glue tipped darts are awful.

Put me down as a definate, unless its the 9th, then only a maybe because I have a race that weekend.

Also Ryan, if hot glue domed stefans aren't aloud I will be sad, just made my first batch of a few hundred stefans and theyre ALL hot glue domed stefans.

As it stands right now, I'm a fan of not the 9th (got a gig that day, which means I can't make CHANO either, dammit), but the other two are looking good. I'd take earlier rather than later, though, so we don't have to deal with as many fallen leaves during darts sweeps.

Ah sorry all, I forgot to sub to this topic, so I wasn't getting the notifications that I so rely on.

Changing the time would be a good idea and I will do it.

I think I can take care of the class balancing with those suggestions, thank you.

As for ammo, Stock/slugs sounds like a good policy. I just did a lazy copy-paste job here, didn't think to change it.

Can we get a confirmed date? We might move the date of Chano 4 to another day, and I'd like to make sure what day this is first, so we don't conflict with each other.

I think a lot of people did 16 due to proposed the Chano 4 date. Are people open to the 9 if it comes down to it?

I guess I will make the date the 16th then, considering I'm being asked to decide a date/there probably won't be an upset in the votes anyways.

Bump due to this being a little less than a month away and an update to the classes, here is the summary, changes in bold:

+ Spartan ~ Only person allowed a shield (which I will provide), Only allowed a provided warlock
+ Medic ~ Can make respawn shorter on Teammates, pistol only
+ Engineer ~ Can move his own mobstacle, if the mobstacle is shot with a missle, arrow or hit with a melle weapon, the engineer is dead.
- All 3 may not achieve objectives, have a longer respawn, unaffected by medics and only 1 per team
