WHEN
Saturday, July 23rd, 2011
10:00 AM to whenever we decide to stop (or the host/s dies, one of the two)

BASELINE STUFF

Slug (or slug type), foam tip, or stock darts only

Bring at least one primary, two or more would be a good idea

If you have multiple blasters and care to be generous bring them so that others bask in your modding glory

I'm not outright banning anything. This includes Jobars/Cobras and waterguns. If yours proves to be too dangerous I'll ask you to put it down

Two things unique to this war and I really doubt it will be a problem, but I want to cover any liabilities first: 1. Don't refer to darts as "bullets," they are darts/slugs/foam projectiles and 2. Put "nerf" in front of "gun."
DeKalb has had one major shooting and several smaller ones and I'd really like to avoid people calling the cops on us from mishearing something.

Don't be a douche.

Try not to curse loudly, if ever. We are in a public park after all.

Lunch is a good idea, as well as cash/trades to broker deals between rounds and before/after the war
There are several fast food places nearby for lunch, or you can bring your own.

The slug type darts I mentioned are simply single BB or 3/16th ball weight stefans that have no hot glue dome, just hot glue securing them in the foam with a flat felt tip covering the dart and the hot glue.

GAMETYPES PLANNED

Carpe Testiculum

CTF and variants

Destruction

Bombing Run

Meatgrinder

Territories

Zombies!

GAMETYPE RULES

Bombing Run

A ball is placed in the center of the field/war ground with two or more teams on different sides of the field. Each team has a "hoop" with the objective to run the ball and toss it into/through another team's hoop. One point per toss, 3 to win. Unlimited spawns, touch and go spawning with set team specific spawn points.


Destruction

Pieces of a titan are scattered about the field. Each team has a base and must launch and land a missle within 10 feet of the base flag to destroy the base. Unlimited spawns with a touch and go spawning unless hit with a titan missle, which carries a 30 spawn timer.

I think I should be able to make it. Put me as a maybe. Would hot glue tip streamlines be acceptable ammo?

I know I'll be there. Would "slug type" be able to have 3/16" ball bearings as weight.

I am a maybe. Unlikely I will be able to attend, over a 4 hour drive round trip. I'll just have to see when the date gets closer though.

I'd like to keep it to just BB weights as both those and slug darts are near identical performance. So, no.

I will probably make an appearance.

Also, could you please post a picture of the park? I don't want to unwittingly bring something unsuited for the airspace.

Pictures of the park are now up. Be careful of the airspace, trees are in most of the park.

3/16" steel balls weigh about .44g, #6 washers about .6g. So, 3/16" steel weights should be fine unless Demonlord has a problem with round weights.

Thank you for that info Kane, I wasn't aware of the weight differences. 3/16'' steel weights are allowed.

If I fix that crazy leaky Jobar I got from you can I use it? Never mind I saw my answer in the rules, free bump though.

While I won't have enough darts to supply everyone there, I'll have enough for you to borrow some.

If I'm not to busy with family I should have 300-500 to contribute to your box.

I lied. I'm not going anymore. Heat index is supposed to be around 105 and there is a 40% chance of rain (which means it'll be humid) and my parents dont want me going. :/ i really wanted to make it though.

If it ends up being 105 on Saturday, I won't be showing up. It's just to dangerous to nerf in that kind of heat.

Just to clarify, the heat index is going to be 105 while the actual temperature is going to be a high of 92. Lion's Park is in a lot of shade, however that won't help much against heat index. We also have a chance of rain that day which will cool the temperature down temporary, but after it ends we're going to roast. I'm not going to out right cancel it yet but I will be there until 11 am. If no one shows up I'll officially cancel the war. To anyone that was planning on showing up later than that, it might be a good idea to either PM me to let me know or just outright not show.
