When:
Saturday, December 1st
10:00 A.M.

Where:
Whetstone Park of Roses, Columbus, OH

Some specific directions once you're reached the park: Go in the entrance and follow the road down the slope and over a number of speed bumps. Then, when the road splits after the small bridge, turn left. Since it will be Saturday morning, there will probably be quite a few cars parked along the sides of the road. We will play somewhere in the left side grass area.

I'll get to work on a map and have that up soonish.

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.
- Sceptor tanks must be covered. I'll be wrapping mine in something silly so that it is not mistaken for a paintball gun.
- 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 (also known as "Coop knows his shit"):

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.

Game Types:
- 3:15
- Defend the Core (DtC)
- Ohio Wingman
- Freeze Tag
- Multi-team 3:15

Round Schedule:

I have a rough plan for the rounds we'll play but I'll mostly be trying to keep down-time to a minimum. I'll post the schedule once it's hammered out.

Definites:
Xellah
Coop


Maybes:
XproXglassX
Valor
Pvt Lee
PBZ

Count me as a definite. I still reserve the right to puss out if it's cold and raining again. I'm fine with cold and snowing, just not rain.

Also, a direct link to that TL;DR image would be better.

If we're playing "War of the Roses", medieval combat must somehow be involved. On another note, I've spent way too much money in Steam...

Their site was modified. Xellah linked to a shot with shit around the border. My link was straight to the .jpg to make it cleaner. The link worked when I posted that. Does this link work for you?

Would anyone be opposed to pushing the war back to the 1st of December? As of now it's just Coop and I attending and a bunch of maybes. Plus, my parents decided yesterday that they wanted to have our family dinner for Thanksgiving on the 17th. Poor, starving college student + free meal = I'm going to take up their offer.

That works for me. It would be great to confirm the date in the next few days. I had to move my date with Matt's mom for the first date, twice may be too rude even for a whore like her.

The date for the war has been pushed back to December 1st. I've edited the original post with the new date. Hopefully this will give you all more time to sure up your attendance or to prepare.

I really wish you guys would stop moving the date of these...especially with such short notice. Just because the host thinks it is to cold(pussy) or is sick doesn't mean we have to cancel or postpone a war.

I'm most likely not going to be able to make it to this one because of work and the holiday season.

If the host of a war can't make it to their war, it becomes someone else's responsibility to handle things. If you want to hold a war tomorrow, I'm sure Xellah wouldn't mind you borrowing the thread to organize it.

And it can be too cold to play outside if they're sick, so fuck you in the face.

One of the main reasons the date was pushed back was that there were (and still are) only two people listed as definitely attending this war. It's not worth my time or Coop's to attend with such low attendance. Pushing the date back is the only option short of making another thread for a future war, which would be stupid. I didn't push the date back because it was too cold, I pushed the date back because nobody is attending.

A month in advance is not short notice. If work can't be rescheduled in that amount of time, then you have bigger problems than trying to attend a Nerf war.

Im still a maybe. If you had a 'probably' list I would be on that. Expect me if I come to be comepletely evolved in the Nerfing. So I'll actually (hopefully) dominate in the war. Haha

If you're on the maybe list, please modify your status so we can get a projected head count.

I'm still able to go, but I'll be showing up a tad late due to something I have to do Saturday morning. I don't really feel like wasting my Saturday for another tiny war, so I probably won't show up at all if it's going to be another 2v2 or something. I'll confirm my definitive status on Friday night depending on the projected attendance at that time.

He means to say that if you're a maybe, decide if you'll be there or not that way we have a definitive head count. Right now Coop and I remain the only definites.

I echo his sentiments; if it's just the two of us for the war, then I won't be there on account of other activities.

If you can, just like right a section of "Most Likely". And put me there. Also Can you put on the Main War Post that I am looking for some STOCK OR AR-REMOVED Maverick TURRETS, I DO NOT WANT BARREL REPLACED TURRETS. And that I am also looking for a STOCK or a SLIGHTLY MODDED Longshot, I DO NOT WANT ANY BREACHED LONGSHOTS. And that I am willing to pay and/or trade for them. Thanks! And also Xellah I found some new very durable foam I'm bringing to show you and Coop and give you guys some 1-1/2in blanks from that foam.

Edit: I also might be able to bring a friend.

I'm retracting my attending status. 2v2's (at best) are lame; I'm staying home.
