Re: we should be worried about the future

That stuff is no different than what Hasbro's been doing for the past five years. Apparently they're focusing on their dart guns as more serious sporting equipment, and have reduced Super Soaker to cheap kids' toys. Seems like BBT is doing the same thing recently too. That's pretty wack, but I think...

Welcome to the board! If you're having trouble finding reviews, allow me to direct you to the bible of online water gun reviews: http://www.isoaker.com/ Search through the database and you'll find pretty much every blaster from the major manufacturers.

Re: Spyra One

Yeah, that would certainly play differently than a standard water war. Reminds me of those Xploderz or whatever they were called, that shot essentially water-filled paintballs. Still technically a water gun, but operating very differently, and not very compatible with conventional blasters. I would ...

2018 WWN League Season

Alright folks, it's the brink of the new year. Time to make the dream a reality. Presenting the first official season of the new and improved water warfare league! The rules are simple. Three (3) water wars will be held on different dates throughout the season. The first two events are regular-seaso...

Re: Spyra One

Welcome to the community! I really like what you all are doing. Innovation is basically dead in the water blaster market. We all want to see water guns move beyond kids' toys and become serious sporting items. Interestingly enough, 'soaking' isn't really the goal in serious water wars anyway. The go...

Re: Spyra One

Huh, very interesting. Reminds me of some of the fictional blasters I made up for my future water warfare stories (such as the professional sport one in the fiction section), which were designed to only do tap shots in order to save water. The trigger would have to be lightning quick. The gun looks ...

Re: 2018 New super soakers

isoaker has come through with some clearer images. So it seems the Splash Mouth, while also having one of the silliest names for a water gun, also has one of the most ridiculous gimmicks. The Twintide is just a basic piston gun but with two nozzles, and the Soakzooka, while it looks like a serious ...

Re: Buzz Bee Toys Independent Again

Wow, that didn't last long. What did we even get out of the merger anyway? Not much changed. Actually BBT seems to be a lot less active than years past. We used to get like one or two full lineups every other year, and now we just get a couple new guns a year. Hope they've got some good shizz next y...

Re: 2018 New super soakers

More junk. Not exactly a surprise, but oh well. Super Soaker is dead, but Power Soaker seems to still be alive and well.

Also, Splash Mouth is one of the funniest names for a water gun that I've heard. :p

Re: If you could only have 3 water guns

It's not that scary. There are only three main classes anyway, so I'll just take one from each: -CPS 2000, because it does it's job better than just about any other blaster. In the right hands it's almost unstoppable. -CPS 1021, because it performs very similar to a 2000, but at a lower power level....

Re: Fall Invitational

Will another weekend work? I don't think I can make it on the 7th.

If everyone is down, I'd make it a league-style game, but just a scrimmage to see how well it works. We'd have to pick teams somehow though.

Re: Bring Back the League!

I'd be interested in a Veteran's Day throwdown. Which battlefield? I'm thinking the first official league season would begin next year, but we could do a Veteran's Day war and/or a war in Virginia (see the other thread) as like scrimmage or spring training (it's not the spring, but you know what I m...

Re: Meet Ups in VA and MD

Maybe not in a water war as I don't see the point of winter wars, but I might go anyway. Man this guy! Having fought in sub-freezing conditions before, I can say that I've still gotten sweaty just from all the running around. It's really not as bad as you'd think. The only bad part is that there is...

Re: Bring Back the League!

So, essentially we meet up once a month and battle? Is there anything more complex that makes it more like a sports team or are we just using the name? I mean it would be more like the rivalry thing we used to do, but better. We'd pick teams and battle to see who's worthy of being league champions....

Bring Back the League!

Hey all, I did some thinking while at work today. Who would be interested in forming a real, honest-to-goodness sports league on here? Obviously we could only support two teams, but it would still work. We could fight several times a season, and whichever team gets the most victories will get the ti...

Re: HOG

Yeah, a lot of locals can't make it, and I don't think we'd get enough community members either. You can try to throw something together if you want; the HOG is designed for at least 5v5, but that doesn't mean your war has to be.

It looks like we will have to push this to next summer. Labor Day weekend isn't ideal, and we're hoping that next summer will bring out more participants. It will be scheduled early (late May or early June), that way it can be pushed back if need be while still not intruding into the school year. So...

Re: HOG

Next weekend won't work for me because I need at least two weeks notice to take vacation days. We've been talking about doing it on Labor Day weekend. How does that sound? Anyone who has school or work should have off then.

There will be no compromises at the HOG. If it's held, it must be done right.
