In Topic: C.A.N.D.Y. SoCal costume war

09 October 2017 - 11:17 PM

I'm always hyped for the Costume Contest aspect of this war, the game is afoot.   

Seeing as I used to run things out here, and Apollo still hasn't responded: 

What are standard socal rules?  Is a 4th grader allowed (my daughter)?


New member here and am located in the SGV, so Glendora is close and am interested in attending.


Played paintball years (and years...) ago, so I'm not completely clueless.  But I pretty much only have stock Nerf and Rival guns ATM and can probably mod a few for Superstock, but wouldn't stand a chance on open field NIC with no high power homemade.

Generally we'd consider a 4th grader a bit too young for a SoCal NIC event like this, taking into consideration that its usually a group of mostly adults/teens playing with modded blasters.  

Another SGV area nerfer is always good news! The Glendora area is home to a lot of wars over the course of the year, and we have a pretty good history with the city's cops and schools. 

I've been running mostly out of the box stock blasters alongside contemporary modded/homemade stuff for several years now (including using Flippin' Vortex Blasters and a Zing Bow) and it hasn't hindered my enjoyment/ability to feel competitive during rounds at even some of our biggest wars like Armageddon. The prominence of Rival Blasters in the hobby really leveled the playing field, and are quite common at our wars.

So if you don't have something that shoots doom lasers don't worry, but consider that some pretty serious modded stuff is allowed when deciding on if you're bringing your kid with you. Also make sure you do something to your Rival Balls to make them unique (for example I tag my nerf branded ones with a neon sharpie, and now exclusively buy Headshot's neon pink ones) or you're going to have a rough time with recovery. 

Hope that helps, can't wait for this war!

That was a fun war folks! Always glad to see this get a good turnout. I had a good time this year, even if I felt like I was gonna die a few times.
Things of note:

  • I was great to see a lot of old friends at this war, one of my favorite things about Geddon is always the people. 
  • It was incredible to hang out with some visitors weren't desperately using my woodshop to prep blasters the night before.
  • The number of fresh faces I saw this year is the most exciting thing to me, SoCal needed some fresh nerd blood.
  • Clicker Deathmatch is great, but I got super nostalgic when Langley mentioned playing 3:15. 
  • I may be getting "too old for this shit" - My feet hated me for three days after this.
  • Wrecking shop with a Zing Bow was a blast. Although I think that brutal crotch shot was actually Canonball's. Not that I didn't get some gnarly ones. 
  • I'm happy to see many blasters distributed to new people, although I wish I'd sold off more of the stuff I don't have space for. 

I know you guys are gonna ask since I showed up with a camera: 

  • I shot a passible vlog for my channel, but nothing close to enough to make a recap video this year.
  • Speaking of that: does anyone who also shot video that day has stuff of me playing during a round? I'd love to actually show some nerfing in my Video about going to a Nerf War. I'll gladly credit, Shoutout & link to anyone who does.


Hope to see a bunch of you soon at the next S.C.U.N. war ... (I'll remind Apollo to actually post one)

Hey Guys, I'm gonna whore out that I have a big box of stuff for sale at Geddon this year because I'm pretty much semi-retired from nerf at this point and I just don't have the space/ambition to keep as much as I used to. Here's The Box:

and I have a full-detail list of stuff here: http://imgur.com/a/tSbmK

PM me if you want to pre-arrange orders before you show up. I'll try to actually pay attention to NH for once. All prices are negotiable, show up with cash or the ability to pay via PayPal at the war if you're interested. 

DO NOT BOTHER TRYING TO PM ME ABOUT BUYING STUFF IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE AT THE WAR: I'll make a separate sale thread later if I feel up to shipping things. 

Can't wait to dust off the ol zing bow and have some fun again this year.
