Yeah so our group is going to be 6 people in all. I have enough darts, but some of them might need some good blsters. I am also looking to buy some 1 1/2 thinwalled pvc. i will need around 5 feet.

I've got both the blasters (I have a unhealthy number of blasters and I have all week off to prep them for this war) as well as the thinwall PVC covered for you. PM me about Price, but I'm thinking around $5.

The Rules:
-Padded washer darts are required.
-No additional weights other than one standard #6 or one #8 washer may be used on one micro stefan. If you have an alternate, equivalent weight in your darts ask me about it ahead of time.


Just wanted to check that padded bb weights are still cool.


Edit: I might as well check here before making a new thread. Is there a listing somewhere of the pressure that different air tanks operate at? Unfortunately search terms need to be at least 4 letters long, so I can't just search for psi. And "tank pressure" doesn't have anything useful.

For those wondering about game types, I will have with me
• Buckets and Balls
• Orange marker cones
• A supersized core for DTC

So no lack of the possible games types!

I'd prefer you use washer weights, but if it is highly inconvenient I'll let BBs slide. As far as pressures, PM imaseoulman. He is very knowledgeable in that area.

Very good to hear. I'm very much looking forward to it.

Location still needs to be decided upon officially. Julian was planning on going to Newell last Saturday to see how busy it was. I haven't heard back from him, but it might be best to just play it safe and go to Highland. For now, the location is Highland unless I say otherwise.

I'll get some washers for my next batch, I just have the bb ones already made.

I think I finally did find out what I was looking for, I found a pretty cheap regulator fixed to 35psi and wanted to make sure it would supply decent ranges. I think stark said he was running 50psi on his sm3k, so I was worried it would be a little weak, but it looks like imaseoulman has 40psi as what he went to in the mod directory. So I think I'm going to try it.

If anyone needs Wye's I will have many. They go fast (Vendom just claimed 5 of them) so if you reeeealy want them PM me or ask on the thread. I am most interested in trade for small arms: eliminators, firstshots, crossfires, LSFGs. could be modded or stock.

This guy right here is pretty jacked. Super-jacked, even!

Hey Veeta: I checked and the massive bag of marshmallows I had at ArFink’s deal still work! I think a second run at Biodegrade ammo will be in order ;)

If someone has flagging tape that would be nice, also my iphone has been stupid lately so I doubt I’ll have the battery power to get many good pics so if someone has a camera or other photo device that would be tits as hell.

I'll have to pick up another bag of those giant marshmallows, the old one was deemed too gross to keep around, haha.

Alright, just finishing some prep and dart making. Tomorrow is going to be a swell time! I spent most of today out shopping with my Dad but I managed to pick up these bad boys:

Drill Press and Hole Saw set. Awesome for making a plethora of things, such as that 4K barrel spacer in the picture. Too bad I got it JUST now when I don't have time to do anything but make darts. Also, if enough people are interested I may be willing to have a mod party after the war. See you guys in the morning! Come prepared!

Well I blew a tire today while running some errands. The spare tire seems stable enough, but it's old as hell. If it has held pressure when I check it tomorrow morning, I'm in. If not, I'll let you guys know. Hope to cya tomorrow!

Recap time. That was a very good war, best we've had here since SPANO I'd say. More thoughts to come.

This was a very good war, very good attendance thanks to the Mankato guys.

Pros
My quadshot performed very well
Playing Vets Vs. Noobs and helping the vets win
getting wye's from Eric
not running out of darts

Cons
My longshot broke in the first round
My Snap broke
getting shot in the face a bunch of times
Hoppers falling off
getting hit in the back bye a plastic snowman and having a big bruise
hoppers falling off while climbing up giant slides
forgot to get lunch
getting there late
not getting any war footage because my camera sucks

I hope we have more MN wars of this size over the summer.

Yes that was a very good war, actually it was my first official war yay. Best part was vets vs. noobs even though I knew we'd lose. Bad things were that most of our blasters lost range and broke. Overall it wasn't too bad. Looking forward to the summer war. :)

I got ridiculously sunburned, but had an awesome time. Can't wait for the next one, and hopefully all the new guys can make it back again.

Also can't wait for some astounding video from venom's sunglasses to pop up.

Edit: Reached into the ol' noggin to come up with a word other then Effeminate. Also, glad to see I'm not the only one with sunburn, haha.

Wow, ok, that was something.

Hella’s
• Scads of hits with The Flesh.
• Amazing rounds of Rescue The Princess using the 4-story play structure.
• Nerfing with Mankato’s finest. ShadowBat and Lotto and company WAY brought it today.
• Like 10 non-board members showed up with totes of blasters and many homemades. Did not see that coming.
• Lunch, as always, was great, as always, because of the company.
• Dart recovery was not that bad.
• Distributed many wey’s to the community at large.
• Scored a Sneak Shot!


Eh’s
• The hell: SUNBURN?!?!?
• Lack of a HAMP that is entirely one piece of plastic that won’t FALL APART EVERY 30 SECONDS!


Mother F, I have no more strength left….

Also can't wait for some astounding video from venom's sunglasses to pop up.

Sadly, any footage recorded using those is all but unreadable. I found that the SD card I used yesterday doesn't have enough class to record video reliably. Really, it is a Class 2 card which doesn't transfer data at fast enough speeds to take pictures/video consistently. I've tested the glasses with my Class 4 card that I use in my phone and they work fine. I'm very disappointed that they didn't work, but now I know for next time. Makes me glad I still took some pictures with my regular camera:

Highlights and lowlights:
+First totally non-fail war in many months.
+13 people at the day's height.
+So many new faces.
+All of said new people were fairly impressive in both combat and with their mods and homemades.
-The pump slide breaking on my Rainbowpump a few rounds in. Damn thinwall PVC,
+Making my RBP into a Rainbowpull by shoving a screwdriver into the plunger rod.
+My +bow performing very well and not breaking.
+Stark managed to show up for one round.
-The Vets vs Noobs round taking FOREVER because people were hiding in the slides. I feel like this was a good exercise to show the new guys not only that the vets are a force to be reckoned with and also why we usually don't play deathmatch.
+Defend the core was easily the most fun and fair game. We'll have to play plenty of that this summer.
+Nobody winning capture the flag.
+Julian texting me to say he couldn't go, then texting me again 10 minutes later saying he could go.
+Eating shit multiple times but having fun in the process.
-Hopper kept exploding, something that has motivated me to make a version that won't explode.
-None of the footage from the video sunglasses turned out. Tis a dirty shame. There were wins and fails alike that will never be seen.
+The weird Greek lamps at Burger King.
+Some random kid who looked like Kip (Eh_Watt?) getting out of a car, looked at us oddly, got back in the car, and rode away.
+Nobody else was at the park other than a few frolfers who kept their distance.
-The parking lot was blocked by a huge wall of snow. Parking across the street was okay, though.
+All of the new guys showing up before 10 and being ready to nerf early on.
-The war ended kind of early. It figures, we actually got going at a decent time.
+Two of the guys' dads making hot dogs and a fire.
+Observing how things have changed over the years. MNSBW 2008 was my first war. This being the 4th anniversary of said war made me realize how much has happened since then. That war had a lot of young new guys just like this one. I was one of those new guys. Now, I've been going to wars longer than any of the people who were present. All of the former "Vets" are long gone (except Flaming Hilt who still nerfs here when he's back from college in WA, where he nerfs as well). There is much satisfaction I feel having stuck by this hobby for such a long time and all of the experiences I've had with it.
