I'm definitely interested in a single-round war. Adding different objectives sounds like a good idea, though coming up with good ones might be a challenge. I'd be willing to help set things up. Having it over spring break would be cool, but I don't think our schedules line up very well. I know marauder's spring break was like a week before mine this year.

That's why he's a nerfer and I'm a water warrior (and soon-to-be airsofter, assuming I can find a good group), haha. I guess I'll offer some feedback on the rounds:
1CTF round 1: It was fun at first because we started out of sight of the enemy (my team attacked) and we crept up on them from all sides. The actual fight was over pretty fast, but better that than being stagnant. Tony (I could've sworn someone said he was Area51) got to capture the flag while I kept the bad guys away.
1CTF round 2: This was in a clearing surrounded by tall grass (my team defended) as seen in the 2nd and 3rd pictures. There was a lot of shooting but it felt pretty cramped. I think I liked the first one better, but that might be because I was attacking then. I'm pretty good on D, but it's kinda boring.
VIP round 1: We waited on guard for a while before the enemy appeared. Once they did it was over pretty quickly. I agree with Alfatrooper; this would've been much better with a couple extra heads.
VIP round 2: This was actually really hilarious because marauder's nephews switched clothes in an attempt to confuse the enemy into going after the wrong one. I think they were fooled for about 10 seconds...yeah that didn't work. But it was still the most amusing part of the war. Once again, this would've been fun if it were like 6v6.
1HS: There was plenty of action, but it was all in the open. If it were all veteran players, I bet you that there would've been close to no hits made. I tried to get my team to move out of the open and try some interesting moves, but nobody listens to me anyway.
A lot of running took place. I was getting over what I thought was just the flu but was actually Mono, so needless to say I wasn't operating at 100%. This battle wasn't my cup of tea, but we did the best we could with our limited numbers.
