    edit:

    On the note of teams, I'll be using the out of the hat method to select them, because in the end, we nerf regardless of who is on our team, and I am not one to support favouritism.

    I was joking, but in all honesty the 'hat' method has the potential to create some questionable teams. Not all nerfers are created equal in terms of ability, experience and equipment.

    I'm not bringing this up because I dont want to nerf if I'm not on my buddie's team, its just that via a random selection method, unbalanced teams could easily be created. And whilst it might be fun for say me If for some dastardly reason the luck gods put me, tony, nigel, axel and jack in a team (god help the nubs), it wouldn't be fun for the other players, and whilst I enjoy firing at them with foam darts, I also feel as though they should be entitled to an equal amount of enjoyment.


    No problem Aj, I needed to mention teams anyway, and you gave me a convenient excuse. If the teams feel unbalanced, I was going to do a re-draw, and if teams are chosen and someone violently opposes, then I'll do the same.
    I'm not really expecting it to be a serious issue, but teams do need to be balanced in this sort of game type for a fun day.

    I'll also take this time to mention that I do not have anywhere near enough whistles for everyone, so you'll have to bring your own. Apart from that, you choose what you take, but obviously use common sense and remember you have to carry it for the entire day.

    Finally on the note of milsim, if people want to embrace that then do it in a tactics kind of way, you aren't going to be able to turn up with yowie suits and recons that look like m16s, but again, most people are sensible and I don't think that will happen.

    I'm new to oznerf and you've never heard of me, but i may or may not be going to this war, at this stage im not quite sure. Anyway the endurance war sounds like a sweet idea and so does the dynasty warriors style war... Good thinking!!

    PS. i might be bringing a friend if that's OK.

    As long as you understand the principle. This war is going to go for a long time. You are going to need a lot of darts, reliable guns and if you get out in the first half an hour, well thats your fault. I'm not convinced that this will be a particularly enjoyable first war as an introduction, but if you are sure that you are prepared and understand whats happening, then by all means turn up.

    I'll be probably be there, but grossly underprepared as my house still needs a lot of work and it's a mess. Still, I'm not going to miss out on anymore wars.

    I'll bring a bunch of bandanas, bibs etc. so we'll be good for distinguishing teams.

    Teams are chosen, currently 7 a side. Possible attendees are included, but make sure you confirm before the war. I wait for a reply from xnerfx, if you decide to attend you will be shuffled into the teams. Bringing a friend would make life easier, as it would keep numbers even, but chances are you would be on opposite teams. Also still wondering if nigel said anything at the last war, or even if he attended.

    Just confirming that I WILL be coming. On a side note, I'd appreciate it if people use my screen name online, rather than my actual name. Just one of my eccentricities.

    Is there a train or bus that goes anywhere near here? because my main problem is getting there. i have a primary and secondary and about 200 stefans. Will i be allowed to leave before 5:00 if i'm getting owned or need to leave for another reason?

    I had a look at the rules again and I think we should have a small designated bag area. It's for those who have been ousted to go as well as a place for me to put the box of bibs/armbands etc. Yes, we have to carry our own water/food/whatever, but there really does need to be a place for the dead and play equipment.

    I thought I mentioned that in the thread, maybe I didn't specify that the area where the people went when eliminated was the bag area. Anyway, that is what I was intending to do.

    The buses that travel to many of our war locations terminate thier journey at North Haven. So they do travel all the way to you and then back to us.

    I'm going to point out that while this war is geared toward the more hardcore of us, people probably shouldn't be using heavies at close range. I doubt there are going to be effective engagements at 200 feet, so everyone should be using normal weighted darts. Beyond that, well, if you manage to put a titan round into me at close range, that's a fair shot.

    I'll shuffle you into the teams faytzero, but I really need a definite on ryan, you can't say maybe.
    I'm going to have to say that if you haven't already posted that you are coming from now on, then thats it, you've left it too long.

    Heavies are also definitely out. Also, at this point, I want make sure everyone who is capable of reading the rules on this thread has. It will make the day run significantly better.

    I presume we'll be using Blue/Red Teams as normal? Last time round I had some difficulty keeping the armbands on properly, so I'll be bringing some cloth bands along. Assuming the B/R bands, I'd suggest anyone else who has trouble with the usual ones also bring their own.

    The colored clothing is fine, just make sure you wear the right color or you'll be a failwhale. I'm also thinking of doing another war at my house 2 weeks after this one. Is anyone not free then? It'll be May 1st.

    In order to travel light, I wont be taking the trolley to this war. So therefore this means the dart box and dart bag (from last war i was at) wont be with me either. So if you were relying on these darts, let me know now.

    Well this war was alot of fun.... for everything else that happened, the nerfing was ok too. Oh and Jason and Mark, were you aware of the 2 girls watching you play, the ones about your own age I'd say 14/15yo... Well they were watching till you 3 kids ran off then they disappeared, probably inside. LOL You had the girls and you all ran away!
