HBWW found some duffle bags and drill bits. David found some Thomas toys, Bob the Builder Duplo, pokedex, clone trooper helmet, and two lightsabers, and I got a huge box of Duplo (which I used to build an Imperial Star Destroyer), a Bop-It Extream, K'nex roller coaster, and a bunch of Tech Decks, which was sweet as I was just looking at them on eBay and they were 10x as much!


Rob got a camera thrifting? The thrift stores up north are awesome. There is no point to thrifting anywhere south of northern Virginia.

Along with the bags, I also found this little guy on the thrifting run.

Fun weekend overall. Not only have I gotten better, I brought in a few plays that I'd use in paintball and Nerf that actually didn't work that badly here. (At least until I had to deal with Rob's 2000.)

The highlights of this war for me were:
-The double kill I got with Marauder during a 2000 battle.
-The moment I got the drop on Brandon and shot him from the back.
- During the bridge battle I made a push that drove Sam and Danny back. I died during that push, but when I re spawned I was able run in and shoot the jug down.
-The dank thrifting trip where I bought a clone trooper helmet for 10 bucks.

You saw them during the OHS game. I basically started dropping low more often and would press forward using a mix of cover and movement. Getting in very close range where it's difficult to dodge is very dangerous and relying on movement alone when engaging at those ranges doesn't work as effectively for me. Rob and I had a few tree-to-tree shootouts, one of which also happened during Pandemonium. Neither of us would take the shot unless it had a good chance of making it. I think those plays were at least partially influenced by all the nerfing we've been doing.

Obviously, they happen at closer ranges and you have to account for the fact that streams are huge compared to darts or paintballs, and you have to account for the different arc and use your blaster to block accordingly if possible.

I think I'm getting better with the new 2500. It doesn't quite go balls to the wall like the 2000 does, but it can make some serious plays against lighter and mid CPS's like the 1000/10k and 1500.

Hey guys, finally have time to post a recap of the war.

Pros:
Waring
First round- I think it was the best one of the day.
Finally hitting people after three wars!
Getting better.
NIC nerf and the sleepover.
Playing with people again with different teams.
Helping to organize and set up rounds.

Cons:
People need to get up. It is really not worth waiting around for two hours in the morning. It is a problem when we can't get fighting in until 11:30ish. This needs to be addressed for the next war. I do not mean to be offensive or abrasive towards people, but I think people need to plan ahead.

Overall I thought this was the best water war I have attended. Thank you so much Robert for hosing me and everyone for attending. Hopefully see you guys soon!

Does anyone have photos? I will have a video up probably in the next few weeks. As it is, I am still going through NENO 14 footage...
