Southeast Nerf Outing - Spring 2016


Spring is here, and what better way to welcome this weather than with a classic Southeast war?

 

Date: Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Time: First round starts at 10:00 am. Be there by 9:30. We play until dusk.

Location: McCurry Park, Fayetteville, GA 30214

It’s a big park, and we’re only using a small part of it. Our staging area is a large pavilion with picnic tables.
Make sure you use the parking lot off of McElroy Road, which you can see in this picture:

What to bring:

1) BLASTERS: Bring at least one reliable PRIMARY and a springer PISTOL.

- Blaster restrictions: DO NOT bring anything crazy overpowered (homemade airguns, singled Titans/Hydro Cannons/drain blasters), or it will not be allowed on the field. 

- Pistol restrictions: Pistols may not hold more than 6 shots, and may not shoot more than 70'. Rainbow Pistols are not pistols.

- Realistic blasters are dumb.

- Blaster hits DO NOT count, however this does not mean you can strap a large shield to your blaster.

2) DARTS: You may use stock micros, stefans, megas, discs, whatever. I recommend at least 200 darts per person.

- Dart restrictions: no darts with exposed metal. No darts heavier than a 3/0. All darts must have at least one inch of foam. Slugs are preferred above everything else.

 

 

LOANER BLASTERS

 

If you do not have an NIC primary and stefans to use, FOR A MERE $5, you may borrow loaner primaries and stefans from me for the day (they’re not crappy, I promise).                                                            

Loaner pistols will continue to be free.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OTHER THINGS TO REMEMBER:

 

- There will be NO BARREL TAPS. If you agree with your opponent to just take the hit, that's fine.

 

- Blaster hits WILL COUNT for this war.

 

- LUNCH, I would NOT LIKE to see people running off for an hour-long lunch break. I personally think it is much more efficient to just bring one with you. Trust me, a turkey sandwich tastes just fine after you have been Nerfing for a few hours. You are free to do what you want though.
- WATER, hydration is important.
- EYE PROTECTION: PRESCRIPTION GLASSES DO NOT COUNT AS EYE PROTECTION. You must be wearing something that completely covers your eyes. I don’t care if you’re over 18 or not, YOU WILL BE WEARING THEM.
- Money/Blasters for trading. We like to do a lot of this down here, so bring what ya got.
- Intelligence, Don't be an idiot.
- A good attitude. Don’t be a crybaby.
- Please do not bring any open alcohol, illicit drugs, or real firearms to this event.
- We will be renting the pavilion for the day, so I would really appreciate if people brought a few dollars to contribute.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GAMETYPES:

FFA
Wingman
Deathmatch
Wildcard

Slaughter (Noobs vs Vets)
Freeze Tag: Kill Confirmed
No Hoppers

Whatever else we feel like playing.


All gametype rules will be explained at the event.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Raffle! We will be having one as per the usual. Please try not to bring absolute garbage. We will be doing it as a picked first = gets to pick what they want.

War is tomorrow!

Went ahead and updated the attendance list, as well as included two specific rule changes:

1. There will be NO BARREL TAPS. If you agree with your opponent to just take the hit, that's fine.

2. Blaster hits WILL COUNT for this war.

 

Making loaner darts today. Make sure you all bring plenty of water!

+Chicken
+Zaxbys
+Spud
+was not to hot most of the day
+my pump snap didn't break
+Winning 2nd wingman round
+trading hits with Zaxbys
+new game type
+pretty much everyone was super friendly
+getting most of my darts back


-NOM, Drac, Bobo, and several others couldn't make it
-my latest project wasn't really ready, and would catch or chamber darts
-super slippery pinestraw
-I lost some stuff
-I was to tired to do anything about Chicken in the last round, even when he just had his pistol

War was great, and I had a blast. I can't wait until I can make it up to the next one!

Thanks for recapping, Zilla.

 

Had a great time at this one; we had 10-15 people consistently on the field through most of the day. While that's only half as much as our Superstock wars get, I really enjoyed it because it threw me back to a few years ago, when we were thrilled to have 15 Nerfers out there. Smaller wars have their own fun charm.

+ Zax showing up, and seeing Spud again!

+ Steve and his son representing Fallout Nukelanta, always a good time seeing them

+ Seeing the Strattons again, always a great pleasure to have.

+ Seeing SENC Nerfers getting their NIC on

+ Derek and Taylor also trekking up from FL and putting in work with their flywheels 

+ Glad I made a bunch of loaner primaries; everyone wanted a piece of air-powered goodness.

+ Great weather

+ Lots of solid, fun 3:15 rounds

+ Trying out a new gametype: Crew Battle. Surprisingly good reception, though I'm still salty about the first round...

+ Zax taking sweet pics

+ Zilla shooting me right above my top lip, haven't had a hit that painful in some time

+ Zilla also putting on an impressive performance; I always enjoyed facing off against you.

+ Hella potshots 

+ A severe lack of hoppers negating the need for more than 1 or 2 no-hoppers rounds.

+ Decided not to charge a rental fee for loaners, but got donations anyway. Thank you so much. 

+ Usually in Southeast wars, we don't count blaster hits like every other region does. Trying it for this war was quite different, but I think it's a bit better.

+ Disrespectful pistol kills

 

+/- Loaners being used, loaners being broken. It's kinda meant to happen.

+/- People agreeing to take the hit at close range, but resorting to surrender every time is so incredibly lame.

 

- No Drac or NoM 

- Didn't bring a weapon for Wildcard

- No postwar dinner

 

Viva la SENO!

Glad to be back guys. Thanks for hosting a good warm up war before NoMNE/Apoc Chicken!

 

Pros

  • Got to finally nerf again, had to shake the rust off but I got back to my old form in no time
  • The drive is so much easier from Auburn than in Columbia. I'll keep that in mind for the future
  • Got a lot of eyes on the new build and the +bow, which always flocks people to attention
  • Had some good shots, a few behind the back and a few lucky hits that really made me remember why this hobby is so much fun
  • Destroying in pistols wingman with Chicken was a big hit of nostalgia
  • Doing better than normal when borrowing Chicken's crossbow for a round. Those things really are magical
  • Seeing Chicken and Zax was great. I guess I'm still not too old for this if y'all are there
  • Meeting new faces and looking at great WIP's. Keep working on that blaster Zilla
  • I can still dodge shots like a madman, even if I end up looking like a fool in still shot pictures while doing it

Cons

  • Double Rainbow and the not-so-trusty anymore nitefinder broke during the day. Gotta continue my streak of things breaking at wars
  • For the most part, my aiming still sucks
  • Doing really poorly in Crew Battle. Still a fun game type, but upset I let the team down
  • Having to shut down some bickering between the younger guys at some point
  • Not seeing Mellow or any of the other guys. Guess I'll have to wait for NoMNE, if I can make it
  • Not enough people for a post war dinner, but having cookout for the first time in months was still worth it
  • Having to pick up an amount of trash left by others post war
  • Feeling like others were at a disadvantage who had never played/were not used to NIC style wars. Make an NIC capable blaster, make your own darts, and things will be a little more fun

A small war, but just what I needed before the summer begins. I'm looking forward to more wars in the future.
