Connecticut Nerf Out - Saturday, July 2nd 2016


[Insert awesome sub-optimal image and teaser video here]

This war replaces the NENO that we were unable to do.  Note the new location.  If you live in the city, on LI, in Jersey, in eastern PA, this is a bit closer to you than usual.  We'd love to see you there if you are able to attend!  Check back here for updates, I like to update stuff the same way I vote - early and often.
 

Play Times: 
10 AM to at least 5 PM.  (That's 1 to 5 in Langley time)

 

Venue: 
West Rocks Middle School
81 West Rocks Rd, Norwalk, CT 06851
Parking: 41.133884, -73.414676

Backup: 
Cranbury Elementary School
10 Knowalot Ln, Norwalk, CT 06851
Parking: 41.156607, -73.402940
Playing: TBA

Lunch: 
Bring your own, or bring $$$ for group pizza.  Bring one for DX, too.  Feed the wildlife.

 

Rules:
Eye protection is mandatory, regardless of age.
Barrel taps ARE allowed (with the SIDE of your barrel or by hand tag).
Blaster hits count and hits to anything you are carrying count.

Shields and melee are not allowed.
FPS limit: Try to keep your average at or under 300 FPS.
 

Allowed Darts: 

- #6 Slugs
- #8 Slugs
- Silicone Domes
- Stock Darts of any variety other than FVJs

Check List:
- Lunch, for DX.
- Water.  Sugar water for DX.
- Money, for DX.  Somehow, I am still alive.
- Blaster for a raffle. (NIB Maximizer, System 2000, 1500 Arrow Shooter, etc)
- Darts.  This one is kind of important.  Bring at least a couple hundred.
- At least 2 primaries.  There's no guarantee that we'll have enough loaners for everyone, especially if you're a Yankees fan.
- Pistol, maybe.  I keep bringing one and we never end up doing pistol rounds.
- Sunscreen, if you burn easily.  Google, broadband, and Van James didn't exist the last time I got burned, but hey, not everyone can be this fabulous.


Game Types:

I'll make a rough playlist to avoid wasting time.  Make your requests if you want to play something and it's not listed.

Current Playlist:
- 3-15 Warmup x2
- VIP x2
- Uma Thurman x2
- Lunch / Maybe speed rounds
- 3-15 x2
- Freeze Tag x2
- 5/0 x2
- 3-15 Cooldowns

Raffle:
If you want to participate, bring a $10-20 blaster to toss in.  We'll assign everyone a number and pick from a random number program.  In addition to the raffle, I will be bringing stuff to give away.  It may not be useful...stuff...but it could be interesting and maybe you'll think of a use for it?  Whatever you don't take will be thrown away 100% guaranteed.  Last NENO I ended up throwing away about 8 blasters that were not claimed.


Confirmed Attendees (14): 
A wild DX +1
Van James
Blitz
Aeromech
Jlego
CA99
Zach +1
Edmund
Jonathan +1
Lucy! +1

Maybe:
Langley
Miguel

Along with Wil, I may be able to pack another plus one.
This is long as Chris drives me lol.

We're not doing superstock with sentinels right?

A war 20 minutes from home and <5 min from the best empanadas and arepas in the area? (Look up Valencia Luncheria, likely calling in an order and picking up for lunch.)

I'd be embarrassed if I didn't attend. DTN.

Several people may be able to attend, but only for a few hours.  You know what that means, right?

"ROUNDS PER MINUTE!"

We need to step it up so everyone can have fun, no matter how long they are able to stay.  Downtime needs to be kept to a minimum.  This is still a week and a half away, so there's plenty of time to make more darts and tune up primaries.  Bring your A game, lots of darts, lots of friends, and be ready to play hard!

A reminder that this is tomorrow!  The forecast is good, around 81 degrees and sunny.  If the power goes out from tonight's storms, the war is still on.

it's lit tommorow cuzz

We're bringing mobstacles, we just finished night rounds of testing. They're very fun but they're bulky and take time to set up. I think if you could help us bring the mobstacles and to and from the car, help setup and dissasembly and not break them, that'd be great.

Also, no superstock. There's so much we're bringing, just, god no lol. All this work, gotta be DIY all day.

(also we should prolly chip in a bit, like 1-100$ to Sam for spending 300+ on materials lol)

Guess I'll be the first to make there post war recap
This place was great in that it was secluded, and hopefully will lead for more to come in the future. Now I gotta change my war name to be NYNO or something so we don't confuse it. The 300$ investment in the mobstacles were great and really turned the the open field into a decent war.

PROs
-optimal cover
-all the cool people
-nailing people with SCS
-actually hitting people when I took off all the crap on my rainbow
-sentinel rounds
-dynamic cover + enviroment, (leveloution)
-ENMPANADAS
-tactical tactics with Rob and Sam

CONs
-Rainbow barrel thread coming out
-that one jam
-all that assembly dissasembly BS, 
-3campy5me

10/10 would host again, we have the materials to make more and more cover,

I guess recaps are still a thing

 

 

Pros

- hella mobstacles everywhere

- Met Van, DX, CA99, Aeromech JLego, Lucian, all these other guys. They're all awesome and I am so happy. Need to do this more.

- I fit all my shit into a backpack!

- Inducted into USC

- leet tactical night wars night before

- losing 80% of Sam's FVJs night before 

- Seeing cool blasters and getting new ideas for builds

- Got one of those cool check valves and a $7 LS

- Rob's SCS's and those artifact darts are kinda wild. Need new barrels for them. 

- "I'm so happy you brought a maxshot. I haven't seen one of those in a while" - JLego

 

Cons?

- Lucian's marshmallow blaster sounds like a car tire blowing up. Absolutely horrifying sound. I want one now. 

- Van's rainbow was really op. I want to make one, or up the power on mine, but I sure as hell won't be using that in close quarters.

- All my blasters broke/were unusable by the end of the day. 

- Said blasters tended to be rather low powered.

- Sunburn. I can even out my tan at the beach in a few weeks haha.

- My knees are shot. 

- Someone post pictures, I don't have any.

Never played with mobstacles before. Turned out pretty well. Thanks to everybody that stayed late and helped to disassemble, it took like 45 minutes to pack everything up and fully dart sweep.

A huge thank you to DX, Van, and Sam for building mobsticles, finding and preparing the field, and for running one of the best NIC wars I have been to. Also a huge thank you to everyone who helped clean up at the end of the day.

 

Pros:

  • seeing and talking with everyone again
  • being team captain and facilitating rounds
  • the field: this was the most fun layout I could imagine and everything about where we played was perfect
  • mostly balanced teams with really high quality 3/15 rounds
  • 1 vs 1 with Van; always fun
  • everyone being in a great fun mood while still minimizing down time

11/10 will be nerfing again!
