    WARoF

    Reign of Foam hits WA!

    A weekend of awesomesauce, full of a mix of east coast power with west coast style. We will be having several guests from interstate, to boot!

    Saturday Afternoon: FF:H, Wingman, Bunker D and Pistols. 1:30 PM to 5 PM

    Sunday Morning: Shenanigans in the park next to my house, 10-12.

    Sunday Afternoon: Indoor CQB - Breach scenarios, TDM, Pistols and Bunker D. 2 PM to 5:30 PM Competitive round.
    $60 entry per team of 5, or $15 for individuals. This covers hall hire and prizes.

    Gametypes will have restrictions on full-auto blasters, so make sure to bring a manual springer if you want to use magstrikes, stampedes or the like.

    CQB will be in a 5v5 tournament style, so interstate players should conglomerate where possible, but WA people will be happy to join you in your teams.

    60 dart limit per person.

    Hey is anyone else from south east Queensland thinking about going to this?

    If so we should talk about getting a place to stay and transportation to save money

    I'd consider attending if there's a bit more QLD interest

    What's the scene like in WA? I see you have an xbow but I'm hoping tha isn't the typical level of gear.

    No, the xbow is most certainly NOT the average level of gear in WA.

    WA is generally a mid-range type of game, with a lot of CQB aspects, you could say.

    Basically, anywhere from 15ft to 90ft engagements are what you should expect for standard games. Epeen goes from 80ft to 120+, whereas indoor is capped at around 60ft normally.

    We're a far more social group, less focused on "the peens" and more focused on fun.

    Hey inf0rm3r. If you can tell me how much the air fairs and accom cost. I'm willing to fly over with you as well lol. Let's meet, Oznerf Sick Kients + Foam Sports Creator + AN Sick Kients a like. We'll show them! Muahahaha.

    P.S. I'll be using stingers for EPEEN, since it ain't epeen without the stingers. Haha. Fkn airport security might go nuts XD. Lite Tips I will be using for CQB. Just need to know the prices of getting there now =). If it's abit steep, probably won't be able to go because I'm saving up for Thailand as well, rego is due and insurance is due near this time of year as well.

    Is there a facebook event for this? Might go advertise it over BNG.

    Just read the rules for hybrid. And I'm actually quite liking it. It's definitely a big improvement over WinterStrike previous FFP idea, since the rule seems too anal. This one seems to have MUCH more flexibility. Good work Swats =). No I'm not being sarcastic either. It's actually gotten me abit enthusiastic about this upcoming event.

    Good to see we have a bunch of the QLD crew coming to this.

    Also, the rules relating to darts and their limitations are set, I will be enforcing the dart rules. So, you're more than welcome to use stingers if your epeen blaster shoots below 100ft, otherwise, you're gonna have to use stock/silis.

    Ah right. I missed that rule. That sucks. Not really EPEEN now. More like your normal war haha.

    Oh well. 100ft / 30m flat? My TS shoots less than that so it should be fine. Angling it will get better ranges.

    Haha Littlebro it looks like you can still use sili's

    On the subject of darts do we have to bring our own to the war or will there be compulsory dart hire?

    Yeah, 100 flat to use stingers. Its more of a liability aspect, in case cops come. Don't forget thats maximum for using stingers, and we're not trying to kill each other.

    Theres no compulsory dart hire, and since there is only an entry fee for the indoor, combined with Inform3r's recent closure of sales, it's not exactly viable.

    Besides, you will only need 200 max over the weekend, we have excellent pickup rates here.

    Post  littlebro05 on Fri Dec 02, 2011 6:11 am

    Haha. Epeen in general is a liability aspect. If we EPEEN will I be seeing these newly design covers I've been hearing so much about? Open field EPEEN, we may as well play 'Civil War' (a game type where we all line up and take turns shooting each other one at a time on open field).

    You've dealt with the popos once, so I'll take that into consideration. When we have a RoF here in Brisbane, then stingers here we go =).

    I suggest a cardboard penetration test. Two layers at 5 metres, and it's banned from using stingers. There's a few blasters I've bumped into, which excel in range, but they lack velocity. The shot blast for example, RSCB'd can get 1 layer, but it can fly almost 120ft flat.

    Since WA is generally a mid-range scene, epeen is basically whatever you don't normally use. The 80ft minimum range for WA high powered just allows more people to be able to play.

    We only utilise cover in indoor games (obviously), as the fields we play on have a decent amount of cover, and encourage movement and coordination. Besides, I helped design them, I haven't built them, that was Fayt's job.

    With that cardboard test, it sounds fair enough, but the inclusion of snap caps isn't what I normally rule.

    We've also had some scarring from stingers, which I also wish to avoid. There's practicality, then there's safety. I err on the side of caution, out of personal preference. Snap caps are great for RPs and indoors, not so much out of Big Blasts, etc.

    Don't worry, if I'm using a air blaster it WILL be with heavy sili tips. They are just more accurate.

    However, with my springers, I'll be using stingers since you need abit more 'range', where as air blasters, the difference is unnoticable, besides the accuracy you get.

    As long as it has some sort of form for cover like 15metre trees apart that's fine with me.

    Snap caps have much more penetration due to the hard tips, where as the heavies are harder for cardboard piercing since they're rubber, heavier and very slightly softer.

    I'm not likely to be bringing an air blaster anyway, maybe for FFP, but nothing else.

    Well you can be the judge for my TS / (maybe LS) when I rock on over (depending on my money situation). I'll be bringing like 400 stingers, 200 lite tips, depending how many I can fit in carry on XD.

    Decided to add a little event on the sunday morning as a "hangover cure" - Shenanigans in the park next to my house for a few hours.

    Also, let me know if you guys wanna book accomodation at that motel I mentioned. This would be ideal, as it will be easier to make a convoy, seeing as it is close to my place.

    that may be seb but we all know we're gonna own the east

    The gauntlet has been thrown. Although, I do consider myself more eastern state in terms of blasters and darts, personally.

    Interstate peeps, its high time to start getting flights and accomodation organised.

    If you could also organise 5-man teams for the indoor afternoon, that would be appreciated.

    @littlebro: Let me know if you and Ben need accomodation, I can link you to a booking page for the motel near my house.

    This is also a reminder to check the rules, etc, about dart and blaster restrictions.

    Thanks dude. As long as it's cheap, then I'm set. Actually PM the link to me when you can =). Living off bread and vegemite... $10. Winnah. Healthy days gone :(.

    @Luke. I hope that heavy silicone tip coming my way is when the war is on. If you shoot me for no particular reason, then I wouldn't want to be in your shoes.

    Thanks for the info Luke. I may consider booking now. Still looking at my financial problems at the moment.
