Hey guys, it's time to nerf!

Date: Saturday June 17th, 2016

Location: 

 
940 Whitney Ave,
Hamden, CT

You can park on Armory Street or Edgehill and then walk to the playing location.

41.336718, -72.915245

With one or two mobsticles, this can become an awesome playing area. There are also some other cool features like a bridge and hill with paths around it. 

 

Time: 10:00-4:30. Please be there on time. We will start warmup rounds as soon as we have enough for 3 vs 3. It would be much appreciated if some people could arrive early to help out with mobsticles. My group should be there by 9:30 so we can get things running by 10.
 
Hosts: Duxburian, Langley, JLego, Aeromech, Nick, Miguel, Van and myself.
 
Lunch: Please bring your own. We will probably also have two people leave the field and pick up pizza for the group.

Rules:
Safety glasses must be worn at all times during rounds for participants.
Barrel taps ARE allowed.
Shields are NOT allowed.
Throwing darts IS allowed.
Not taking a hit will result in the player sitting out a round.
I or one of the other hosts has the right to spot ban over powered blasters.
All blasters must shoot on average less than 310 fps.


Dart restrictions: 

#6, #8 slugs, and silicon domes only. Stock amo of any kind is also allowed. 

Check list:

Lunch,
Snacks,
Lots of water, (gatorade is also good)
Blaster for a raffle.
Darts,
Two primaries, there is no guarantee of getting a loaner. Please bring all of the usable blasters you can. We can't stretch this enough.
Pistol for pistol rounds,
Money,
Sunscreen.

Game types:

We will be playing a good mix of game types.

Elimination: 

3/15
Freeze tag
Kill Confirmed
Countdown
Wingman

Objective:

VIP
Defence CTF (a NENO special)
Carpe Testiculum

If I can find transportation, I'm down. How competitive is very high end superstock gear? Anyone running full length darts?

Typically there are a couple superstock rounds during the day, most people are using full length stock darts for their superstock setups. High ROF superstock gear definitely has potential for a competitive edge against NIC blasters in the other rounds, so long as they're used wisely and as a part of the team as a whole.

 

 

What exactly are the details of the raffle mentioned?

People bring blasters they don't use/would be willing to part with and everyone who puts something in gets a chance to pull something new out.

One more question, would there be anything stopping me from using a laser sight on my Nite Finder?

This is not a joke, I am not referring to the 'flashlight' it comes with.

So it looks like it'll be scattered thunderstorms and rain the whole time.

It'd be irresponsible to not reschedule the war.

War is still on and everyone is busy for the next few weeks. We will take cover under the trees if it thunders. Bring extra socks and a towel.

 

See you all tomorrow!

Hi everyone. Thank you all for coming out and nerfing. In total we had 11 people- a combination of vets and first time NENO players. I would also like to thank DX and Van for supplying mobsticles.

 

Pros: 

  • seeing everyone again
  • having fun
  • new playing field which some people loved and others like me didn't like
  • many high quality rounds
  • great balanced teams all day
  • 3 rounds of superstock because it was so fun!
  • good cleanup
  • that final 1 vs 1 with Jaxon

Hope to see you all soon at a CTNO! I think DX has the group photo as well as some photos which are on FB. I will have footage up in a few weeks if you are interested. Thank you.

This was a great war! I loved the playing location. Ran my superstock RS all day with moderate success. Some rounds got killed immediately, some rounds got a few tags. Every round had fun!

Pros:
* High end superstock held it's own...
*.. because there was lots of cover
* Weather was pretty good, didn't rain until the end
* Superstock rounds were sweet
* Brought my friend to his first real war
* Had fun all day
* Borrowed Nick's 4B for a round, gained 100fps

Cons
* Worrying about rain
* Poison ivy is a bitch
* Sandals were a poor choice of footwear
* Had to rush like crazy to load mags and keep up with people between rounds.
