Columbus War!

Canceled Due to Shitty Weather

When:
October 20, 2012
Show up at 9:30am. Rounds will start at 10:00am. We’ll probably end around 3-5pm depending on people's exhaustion.


Where:
Colerain Elementary
499 E Weisheimer Rd.
Columbus, OH 43214

Google Maps Link


Rules:
- No participants under the age of 13.
- Eye protection is mandatory for participants under the age of 18.
- Air blasters that originally fire a projectile larger than a mega dart must have their over pressure valves unmodified.
- No shields will be allowed.
- Do not use any blasters painted all black. If you have a dark blaster, please avoid wearing camouflage clothing or too much tacti-cool gear.
- Blasters will only be banned due to safety/power issues, not because it dominates.
- Hosts will have final say on all blaster bans.


Dart Rules:
We are allowing hot glue tips and felt tips for this war. These rules may be more annoying to understand, but we want more people that come to use stefans because stock dart wars are retarded.

These dart rules are revolving around safety, not range. Our idea is to standardize the “pain” level and let people use anything they want within these perimeters. Someone will eventually find a loophole or a way around these written rules. Please note: it’s not fucking cute to do this - we’ll still just ask you to leave and never come back.

Stock darts, missiles, discs or anything else like that are allowed, obviously.

Felt pad darts:
- Weights are limited to ¼” slingshot weights or lighter. This means ¼” slingshot weights are allowed under a felt pad.
- Felt pads must be approximately the same width as McMaster felt pads. This is only super important is you’re using heavy, hard weights. We don’t want a thin pad over a metal slingshot weight; that would hurt.
- If you kiss the felt to a flame to prevent fraying, please limit the amount you burn off in order to keep it soft.

Hot Glue Domes:
- Weights are limited to two (2) copper BB’s or lighter. I can’t accurately weigh these, so just don’t be a bitch and use super heavy weights with hot glue domes.
- ¼” slingshot weights with hot glue tips are BANNED.
- Hot glue must fully cover the weight - you cannot have exposed metal.
- You may not use washers in conjunction with hot glue. This causes exposed metal.


Tl;dr - Don’t be a douche bag, yo.


Game Types:
- 3:15
- Defend the Core (DtC)
- Blob
- Ohio Wingman
- Capture the Flag (CtF)
- Multi-team 3:15


Round Schedule:
I felt we had a lot of down time during the last war. I’m setting a round schedule to keep things on track. If you’re derping around in the staging area and being slow, we’ll start without you.

Also, if you’ve never hosted a war, you do NOT get to back seat host. Standing around complaining about how slow I am being or how bad a host I am being is fucking stupid when you’ve never hosted a war. It’s a tough balance to keep things on a speedy schedule while not coming off as a tyrant.


Other Information:
- Bring a bagged lunch or money to get lunch during a designated break. We usually break around noon for an hour to eat at a nearby Wendy's (Columbus tradition)
- Be sure to bring enough darts to support yourself and your guests for the whole day
- Remember to bring water
- Are you new to NIC or Columbus Nerf? Check out our definitions of certain game types and other stuff that will help you when you arrive: http://pastebin.com/F8xELVyT - This is posted on an external site in order to reduce clutter. This thread is already supa long.

I was kidding about the 25+ in that text message, so you know. We had about 10-12 people show up I think. I just don't want you to be disappointed when you arrived for this one :)

^The answer to that is... no one.

People actually Nerf in Cincinnati? They must be more hipster than I am, because I've never heard of it.

Could we add some Carpe to the schedule? It would probably work better in the wooded area than DTC anyways.

I'd also like to throw in that I'm up for dropping Blob if no one else minds. That game-type is a clusterfuck of misunderstandings and close-range hits waiting to happen. With domes and the uneven distribution of blaster power I see that being unfun for people without hoppers or 100ft ranged blasters. That's just my opinion though.

Honestly, the schedule is going to look like this in all probability:

10:00 A.M. - 3:15
10:20 A.M. - 3:15
10:40 A.M. - 3:15
11:00 A.M. - 3:15
11:20 A.M. - Sweep
11:40 A.M. - 3:15
12:00 P.M. - 3:15
12:20 P.M. - 3:15
12:40 P.M. - 3:15
1:00 P.M. - Lunch
2:00 P.M. - 3:15
2:20 P.M. - 3:15
2:40 P.M. - 3:15
3:00 P.M. - 3:15
3:20 P.M. - Sweep
3:40 P.M. - 3:15
4:00 P.M - 3:15
4:20 P.M. - garbages vs superiors 3:15

1)They must be more hipster than I am, because I've never heard of it.

2)Could we add some Carpe to the schedule? It would probably work better in the wooded area than DTC anyways.

1) They don't post as often anymore, although they were more active than Columbus Nerf at one point. But that was before your time, noob.

2) I do plan on adding Carpe Testiculum to the round schedule. However, this will be dependent on whether or not I can find a bag of balls at a reasonable price before the war. Other people do have them, but I didn't want to write it in the round schedule and have them not show up.

It will not be 3:15 all day long. If we stick to one game type the whole day, it will likely be DtC. However, I plan on sticking to the round schedule for this war. Unless less than 6 people show up, then some game types will be exchanged to increase the level of awesome.

I plan on being at this...however I do not get off work til 1pm so I will be a little late(lol). I will be bringing lots of stuff for sale as usual.

Edit: in request for Carpe I will try to put the balls in the car with all my stuff before work.

Just a few days out. I'm taking down the round schedule, I don't think there are enough people coming to justify its use.

In my opinion, 6 people is not enough to play Carpe, so I'm not going to buy the balls or buckets for the war. It will likely be a day of meat grinder and DtC unless other things are requested by the majority.

Meatgrinder =/= 3:15 and your schedule did not include DtC. So no, you are still wrong :P

We must play PvP. Even if no one agrees, foam will fly. Nerf diddle FTW.

ok, who are the people that host the cinci wars?


I havent been on here much lately, mostly due to family issues. The reason most people that Nerf in Cincinnati dont post is because outside of our typical stomping grounds, we dont really have a set place to go and have wars unless we go about 20 minutes away to a park in Kentucky. Granted, the area is awesome (Im sure there are pictures here somewhere of Boone County Woods). Theres actually a war supposed to be going on there this Sunday.

The war is canceled. I'm very sorry about the late notice, I have been away from my computer today. The reasoning is mostly to do with the weather. It is supposed to be cold and raining tomorrow, which is terrible weather for Nerf. Also, I'm coming down with something, so it would not be an intelligent decision to run around in that weather for me.

Again, I'm very sorry about the short notice, there wasn't much I could do about it. Hopefully everyone checks the forums before they leave.
