THE CALIFORNIAPANTS'S BACK MEMORIAL WAR 2015

Location:
Stanton Elementary School
725 S Vencino Dr
Glendora, CA 91740

Dart?
Slugs and safer darts only. No metal is preferred but I understand that to maximize attendance while keeping it safe I need to keep this restriction more open. If you do make slugs, use #6 washers and not #8 washers. Use Ryan McNumbers' excellent guide available here if you plan on making slugs. If you use larger ammo, like megas or similar, keep them soft-tipped by the same guidelines as above.

What isn't allowed?
With dart restrictions, there isn't as much of a need for blaster regulations. Don't bring Titans shooting micro darts because that's just ridiculous. I and other war council advisors will spot-ban things if you are lasering dudes from a million miles away.

Blaster rules:

HOMEMADE AIRGUNS: Talk to me first. Blaster that conform to my QEV design thing should be fine, as would similar ones.

TITANS: You may use them if they fire missiles (stock or Draconis or whatever) or balls. They must not be firing darts.

LBB/4B/UMB/SIMILAR: You may use them if they have the stock OPRV.

SUPER SOAKERS/SIMILAR: Do not bring them. If they shoot darts, they're too powerful. If they shoot water, then people get mad.

SCEPTORS: If you want to use a Sceptor, make it colorful. Make it look as little like a paintball gun as possible. Wrap the tank in denim or something. If you replace the tank or pump, the OPRV must be kept at the same pressure and the tank volume may not be made any larger (stock, is about 800cc).

SUPERMAXX 2000/5000/9000: Do whatever. I hope you don't blow up your tank.

MELEE WEAPONS: Don't bring anything larger than these.

SHIELDS: Hits on shields count as hits on you if you plan to use them. Manta Rays welcome.

What gametypes?
The usual.

If you have specific questions or concerns, PM me, or post them here, or whatever.

Talk to Dom, maybe.

Unfortunately, I have no space available, but it would be awesome to see you down here again. Best of luck finding a spot.

Yes, that would absolutely be okay.

I'll be there, with that prototype I haven't answered any questions about yet. School's been crazy.

If two powerful is a problem then just go with one powerful. I guess this style of hopper will work even beyond three powerful..

I'll be very glad to see all of you again. Should be fun!

 

Dom, please bring an Ultimator. I want to play a version of UCP with one core and where everyone without an Ultimator uses a Vortex gun.

Weather update: There's a 30% chance of rain as of today, according to the government weather service website. The war will happen regardless of the weather. One of the best Christmastravaganzas happened in the rain and during a game of powerball I slid into ten feet across some concrete and into a door. It was amazing.

 

See you all on Saturday.

I DON'T HAVE TO MAKE DARTS! I found the jug of the lame ammo from Geddon, Wahoo!

This means I can enjoy a bunch of lonely drinking the night before as Sex Dwarves tend to do.

Sorry for double post, but does anyone have a 4b trigger they'd part with? I'm going to try and fix it tonight, but I already used my spare.

Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday. Tons of fun.

  • Mysterio's homemades are always tons of fun to see in person.
  • The weather was perfect and it didn't start raining until I was on the drive back home.
  • The gametypes were super fun, all the way around. I'm shocked at how enjoyable Reverse Carpe was to play after being hastily cobbled together in about half a minute by yours truly.
  • Lots of fun blasters.
  • Dom scoring the most points that anyone has ever scored in Ding. He definitely won the eyepatch for that.
  • That Ultimator missile that decided to chase Mysterio.

Looking forward to the next time I see everyone.

Oh man, what a blast. Tight war dudes. I'll keep it short, because the drive back was rough and I'm still tired.

  • Direct hit to the dangly bits... unpleasant
  • DING!
  • Reverse carpe is the GOTY  - OmissusTesticulum? Excutio?
  • Accidentally DOM-inating that one Freeze Tag round
  • My Lock 'n' Load was such a salty bitch, but the only dissenter of the day.

 

Basically this war was super fun. It was very much like an oldschool Pittsburgh war, thanks everybody.

So tired still, but it was worth the long drive.  Thanks Dom, for toughing it out with me, and thanks everyone for being welcoming to a noob like myself.

It was a nice war......

* Weather was outstandingly beautiful, calm before a brief Southern California rainstorm.
* I thought you played just fine, Apocalypticamerican, you played very solid and if you were a total Noob, you would have used Ultrafires, not a LiPo on that Stryfe. 
* Sorry I nailed you in the nads Domm, I know where your aiming at me next war we play ;)
* The kid who brought the Orange EAT and scored all those hits in Ding at once (10 I believe, I got 1, and Dom scored with the Ultimator for the win), also worth mentioning.
* My first AT2K battle ever, and I absolutely love mine, Can't wait to show Roboman.
* I have grown more in S.C.U.N than any other Nerf league, but I still need to work on some stuff. 

As usual, a great war from a solid group of NIC players.
