I'm pretty much a confirmed, with a likely +2 (instead of a +1). I'm also hoping to sell a Mav-Titan (for cheap) at this event. If anyone's interested, let me know.

I would like to attend, but I will have to check with my girlfriend to see if we have anything planned.

I will say that there is a 90% chance of me attending.

Just to confirm, I (and a +1 noob) are going to be their. Most likely late......not by much baring a cataster-fuck of Effeminate proportions.

Also I am looking for some brass. Can't remeber the diameter, nesting it as stubs in pteg. So obviously whatever the hell that is. Will also reduce ing inventory of Good Will crap, mostly pistols.

I'm bringing Draconis Rockets to the war. If anyone has barrels or launchers that work with them feel free to bring them I will have plenty of rockets for use.

I'll definitely be bringing my rockets and my barrel.

On another note, is there any chance that anyone could sell me some darts at the war? I've been really busy recently, so I haven't been able to make any extra darts for my friend. I'm also away right now and won't be coming home until the day of the war. I only need probably 100-200 darts, and would prefer if they are beige foam, white foam, or better. I'll pay at the war or through PayPal, whatever is better, but this would be very helpful. I hope this is ok to post on here, Koree.

I got some darts! Do you need #6 or #8? I'll send you a PM.

EDIT: I will NOT be able to make the war this weekend due to an injury. Sorry fellas.

Sorry for the short notice, but I will be unable to attend today. My robotics team is trying to make their robot more competitive and apparently I'm the only person who knows how to program a CNC. Have fun today though!

Got a say, hell-a way to kick off the season. Got to play with my new blaster, though I can't hit crap with it (except Griever, thank for breaking it's cherry ha ha). Got a video and as soon as I can figure out technology, I'll have it up.

Well I'll go ahead and do the Pro/Con reply since no one else has.

Pros:
- First indoor war and it was amazing. (Koree you did a great job)
- Getting to see some friends I only get to see at APOC (Aeromech, KBK, Miguel)
- Popping Clownie's (blasters) cherry :P
- Getting to play with Clownie after a long hiatus.
- Games were plentiful and really fun.

Cons:
- exhaustion after that 2:30 timer demo round.
- Most of my footage of Rounds filmed is dark, but I will make it work somehow.
- Long drive through God's Country...

Overall can't really complain about it, it was a great day. Can't wait for the next war.

(I need to do a lot of editing, I will have my video up as soon as I can)

This was the best war I have attended so far and my first one inside. Koree did a great job hosting.

Pros:
-Seeing everyone again.
-Meeting new people: Ryan, Zorn, Clownie, Beaker, Kane.
-Awesome teamwork.
-Great rounds.
-Stepping up my game in the 3/15 round before lunch with only 1 life left.
-Buying new blasters.
-Being team captain.
-Objective based games are very fun.
-Getting a lot of hits.
-Waiting for Koree to free the suitcase and then blasting him.

I rate this war a 11 out of 10. Can't wait till the next one!

Wow. This war was amazing.
Pros:
- Plains airsoft arena is kickass and the perfect venue for a war. You can't find a better place to have a war.
- Meeting everyone
- Having some cool blaster design conversations with Aeromech
- The bomb game with the "real" bomb
- The airsoft grenade thing going off right in front of me
- Darts were really easy to recover
- The conquest type game
- The attack and defend game was awesome
- Seeing everyones blasters
- Darts hitting the wood made the blasters seem really intimidating
- Being team captain for freeze tag (my team won!)
- Bringing out my my +bow in freeze tag and having an awesome time. Seriously, freeze tag was a blast (pun intended), especially whatever was going on on the second floor of the one building.
- Koree was an awesome host
- I probably forgot stuff and I will add it if I remeber

Cons:
- Had some blaster problems in the beginning, but they were all fixed in the end.
- When you went outside and came back in you couldn't see for a few minutes
- Was that an elevator up to a second floor that didn't exist?

Thank you so much for this war, Koree. It was an awesome experience that every war will have to live up to from now on. 10/10 would Nerf again.

Great location and fast pacing with a small group meant I spent more time Nerfing than taking photos.

Here's a couple from the one 3-15 Team Deathmatch we played:

I guess we're doing the pros-cons thing?

Pros:
Two story castle defense
Killer cast of nerefers, meeting new people and some old ones from wars past
Getting featured on griever's YouTube channel
Seeing new designs from Drev and the Unholy 3
Teamwork
Being able to rush through ample cover
Zorn getting some Effeminate action shots
People using my blasters and experiencing them Aeromech ergonomics
Just good sportsmanship among all participants

Cons:
Dem 4Bs

Good job Koree

Hey guys,

Thanks for coming out, especially to those who came out for airsoft as well. I'm hoping everyone was pretty happy with the number of rounds we managed to get in, I was pretty pushy about getting people prepped for the next round but we paid a lot of money and I think we made the best out of the time we had.

I've talked to the owner and we're pretty sure we can make this into at least a once a year thing. Next year I'd like to have it a little before spring starts to help everyone get the dust off their nerf guns so we can be in full swing for our outdoor games in the spring. That being said, I need a name for the event, so if you think of anything please let me know! However, if anyone else suggests something having to do with snakes and plains you will be shamed.

As for more wars hosted by yours truly, I'm going to try to arrange for us to use a new field in the Philadelphia area suggested by joedimarco. Since this is the same county we've been kicked out of parks before I'm going to ask the town/police to make sure the same thing doesn't happen again. I'll keep you guys posted.

On a less positive note, I'm missing an ESLT! If anyone finds that they've packed a ESLT with green bungees, please let me know.

Time for a belated recap... in the universal +- format.

+The cover at the arena was perfect.
+Domination gametype was awesome
+Bomb gametype was awesome
+Plenty of targets all day long.
+New and untested ESLTs worked fine as long as they weren't actively being publicized.
+BullPAC 3 and PullSCRTs worked fine too. The purple catch doesn't suck anymore. Woo!
+Concrete floor was smooth enough for sweet slide moves
+No grass made dart sweep easy.
+Walls made dart sweep easy.
+Walls are also great boundaries so you don't have the dick who runs away from the play area, or just runs on the edge so people blast their ammo into oblivion.
+Koree is an easy target
+Especially with a bullhorn.
+Did I mention the domination and bomb gametypes were awesome?
+Postwar buffet. It's the only way to end a war.

-Punk bitch made a pink foam glue dome, which jammed my blaster and took me out for a round, as well as forced me to go through all of my ammo with a magnet.
-Slipping on airsoft BBs hurts on concrete.
-Low light in the arena--Plenty to see where you're going and where ppl are hiding, but not quite enough to see darts in flight.
-East coast fools think freeze tag is a good game.
-Too far away from where I live.
-Lots of big blasts with pump replacements, probably none of which had an oprv.
-Koree seems to have lost an ESLT. I hope it turns up soon!
-No actual "Nerf" blasters in play. I guess that's good that everyone was well equipped, but I'm used to judging the quality of a war / arena by how many times I get blasted by some kid with a Longshot.
-Touchscreens don't respond to my fingers, so I kept having to get someone else to plant the bomb. We held the position anyways because we're hardcore like that.

+- Arena owner dudeman got shot in the face with a slug and bled in the first round. Clearly shooting washers at each other is totally safe.
+- Apparently I got mad exercise because my legs didn't work right for a week.

Anyways, overall it was a great war, and I can't stress enough how well the cover was laid out. Seriously, I'm the guy that would nitpick hard about the cover, and I can't find anything wrong with it.

I've looked hard for a similar location in the chicagoland area, but I think I'm still a couple million $ short of renting a warehouse. There are only a few indoor airsoft arenas I've found nearby, and they look terrible in comparison.
