MILTOWN THROWDOWN 2k16

 

DATE: SUNDAY MAY 22TH, 2016

(10:30am - 5pm)

 

Location: Grant Park(South Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

208 Lake Dr, South Milwaukee, WI 53172

(This address will take you to a house across the street from the correct entrance to the park. There are multiple sections of the park, if you just look up grant park it may not take you to the right entrance, so just use this address)

 

 

 

 

RULES:

 

AGE RESTRICTIOS: I am not going to ban anyone by age necessarily, but if you are under the age of 13 i would like a parent to be present and understand the basis of this style of nerf war. We will be using highpowered blasters with aftermarket and homemade ammo types, if you're not okay with going home with a welt or two you probably should not attend. 

 

DARTS - Slug style stefans, FVJ's, china darts, and stock elites all acceptable. No glue domes. 

 

BLASTERS - Blasters will be decided mostly on a case by case basis. 

Higher powered NIC style blasters encouraged, but usual NIC restrictions will still be in place.

Any airguns meant to shoot large ammo in stock form may not have a plugged pump unless decided otherwise by otherwise by the group. 

No singled Titans, No Super Soakers.

 

MELEE WEAPONS - Generally extremely erotic. No large axes, small (less than 2 feet long/6 inches wide) nerf brand/other foam swords allowed, but not encouraged. 

No Shields

 

BARREL TAPS - If you are using a high powered blaster and do not wish to diddle someone point blank, it is acceptable to yell "BARREL TAP" or "BANG" and fire your round into the ground. 

 

EVERYTHING WILL BE RUN ON THE BASIS THAT WE CAN RESPECT EACHOTHER AND RESPECT THE RULES. IF SOMEONE CLEARLY WOULD HAVE SHOT YOU WHEN YELLING BARREL TAP, ACCEPT IT, GO OUT, AND CONTINUE WITH THE GAME. JUST  THE SAME WITH GETTING HIT. IF SOMEONE CALLS A HIT, ACCEPT THAT THEYRE PROBABLY TELLING THE TRUTH, SAME GOES FOR CALLING HIT, JUST BE HONEST, ITS A GAME, HAVE FUN. 

 

 

 

 

HOPE FOR A DECENT TURN OUT, RSVP HERE PLEASE. 

 

ATTENDANCE:

-Myself

-Gears

-Beal

-Smith

-Andrew K

-Carbon +1 

-sds

-The Manta

Looks like I may be able to break my unintentional semi-retirement for this one. Does anyone have any slugs for sale/use?

Coolness. I'm actually getting a sample from shandsgator so I can do a barrel test, but won't get them in time. Thanks!

 

Also looks like I'm going to be a +1, my older daughter is coming with me.

All up in this bitch.

bring other options, we'll decide as a group at the event. I would personally decide against plugged 4b's

 

 

 

Also, really glad i decided to postpone this and get to see a few more faces! This is turning out to be a quality war! 

 

 

@Manta that's totally fine!

Just moved to WI, so I'm going to try hard to attend (provided I don't get lost in Milwaukee)!

 

Gonna bring a few stock blasters that I don't have time to mod if people want to take them off my hands.

 

Also, Is there any fast food nearby, or should I bring food to the field?

There's a McDonald's and an Arby's about a mile away, but not much else.

 

Also: it's been so long since I've nerfed that ​I couldn't find my blasters. I am ashamed.

Seriously, this was a quality war, and a great reminder of everything I love about nerfing. It's been too long, and I don't intend to let that happen again.

 

+ The Grant Park location is fantastic. Lots of trees and cover, and out of the way. For a nice Sunday afternoon, the incidental foot traffic was minimal, and the people who were there were more interested than anything else. I look forward to playing here again. Bonus: the police rolled through the parking lot, but didn't see the need to chat with us.

+ Great group of people. A small war, but good teams and a lot of fun.

+ A nice mix of blasters on the field, but yet no one was being outgunned. Sceptors, SNAPs, Big Blasts, Flywheels, Longshots, Hammershots...all good, and all useful.

+ Something surprising in the 2+ years since I've last nerfed: flywheels are now effective blasters. I spent a lot of the day dodging (and getting tagged by) swarms of darts.

 

-The SNAP-9 had a mechanical failure near the end of the day. Eh, it's taken a while to happen, and that's what I get for using thin wall in a stress area to try and save weight...

 

Thanks to Holter for a great war!

Thanks so much everyone for coming out!

Everything turned out great and I had an incredible time.

 

Special thanks to Eik for taking some photos, and Carbon for helping me iron out the details on a couple of game modes. Hopefully next time i'll keep things running a bit better/have all the rules for all the game types figured out 100%.

 

 

Keep your eyes peeled for another war in the near future! (1-2 months)

 

Hope to see everyone + more next time!
