So they have them in New York now too?

 

Not sure where the player got it. I know some Targets got stock early.

I've run Ekind waffle 'drats' in four consecutive wars. They run exceptionally in Artifact cages and wheels.

 

The glue is definitely weak. Most heads are very loose after two or three uses. Very few survive more than five shots.


In Topic: [NY] NYCNO 4 (March 18 Saturday)

This was the first war I've run, and seeing everyone have a good time filled me with feels.

 

Upsides:

  • New Rapidstrike firmware was a beast
  • "Sticks and stones" pistol/shotgun/bow/melee 5-15 FFA rounds were balanced and intense
  • Improved flag push rules were a blast
  • There was a guy in a gorilla suit
  • Got to field-test a Nemesis and it's god-tier
  • Tactical tactics were real. Lots of sick plays and great teamfights.
  • Good mixture of cover and exposure
  • Nice and dry up to the end
  • Improved Harambe Defense VIP rules played great

Downsides:

  • Hard to control a Rapidstrike trigger in ski gloves
  • Still figuring out the best defender spawn time in flag push
  • Ekind waffle 'drats' kept wearing out
  • Reloading six mags in the cold sucks
  • Like a thousand Rival balls everywhere, took ages to sweep up
  • NYCNO field is getting stale. We're looking for a spicy new battlefield

I run Ekind waffle 'drats' and can confirm that the glue is too weak for good airgun performance. They leak air around the heads, the heads bind in the barrel, and the pressure can easily blow the heads clean out.

 

I'd recommend buying suction 'drats', Kooshes, or FVJ's, which usually have more glue.

 

You can also use really long, loose barrels in airguns. The huge volume of air can accelerate a dart without a tight seal.
