Some things I have noticed about new members. Is that they seem to think they need to be in a clan or start one right off. What you should do is
A. Tell your friends, get your get people into it.
B. Just Nerf, don't worry about clans and crap...Just nerf. See if you like it's about having fun.
C. Only get a clan together once you found a group that you click with. It's always good to make sure you get along with your fellow clan members.
All in all, just nerf....don't worry about clans til you get more experience.
Take advantaged of the internet. It's not just a social hour. It's a great tool to learn from. That's what we are here for. Don't feel like you haft to comment on every little thing. I know I lerked at bot NHQ and NH for awhile. I lerked at NHQ for a couple of months. It was at least a year of lerking before I ever posted here. I'm not saying you should wait that long. But READ the forums before you start posting. That means look back to the first topics on page one....Your answer may be found there.
It takes awhile to become a true informed nerfer. I've been nerfing for over 2 years and I still think of myself as a newb.
Don't be affraid to ask questions....But please put some thought behind it. Newbs have a tendancy to say what's on their mind without thinking much. Take the time to research your question BEFORE you start making topics. Don't abuse the forums. Because you won't gain any respect with any of use.
Enough about the internet, that's why we have a code of conduct. By the way if you haven't had a chance to read them. Please do.
Guns, lot's of guns. You can never have enough. The beauty of nerf is the fact that it doesn't cost an arm and leg to do. Don't be affraid to hack it up, rip it apart, or take things from other guns to make it your own. New and inventful idea's are what made nerf what it is...so let's continue the spirit. Don't just become a carbon copy of someone elses work.
That's all I have for now.
EDIT: I thought of some more things....tee hee
Big wars are all well and good. But don't just go to those because "like OMFG lol, A nerf god is going to be there!". ...Smaller wars are much better.
yeah, I think I'm done for now...
- Your loving BK
...Thanks Shingy...I feel loved...
