Same as before, post in Pt.4 and Pt.5 thread. Using another post to make it more obvious, rather than put a small obscure note at the end of each article section.

Same as WWc thread, just that more new people tend to come here than WWc (i think). Breaking this up into a few threads as it is quite long. To administrate a Water-war I figured that since more people want to start their own water wars and promote the hobby, I decided to type out share some of my ...

Hey, same here, last year at least. They held a rocket competition for the sec3s (equivalent of 9th grade I think). The engineering team entered and used the WBL, and smashed the record of 36m, with a score of 102m. Once we fired our first round, the competition among the others was for second and ...

Anyone got a plane ticket? XD

If circumstance has it, maybe if I go to a US university in the future, I could swing by, though I probably won't be bringing the most fun equipment. Airlifting tanks only happens in the RP. :p

I like the idea of a more water war oriented forum/thread/atmosphere, being more of a strategist than a technician. But to be fair to the general community, who may not have the circumstances to go into water war, perhaps instead of starting a whole new forum for water war, we could just have some ...

If you're thinking of a 10 groups x 5-10 people (50-100 participants), I'd first advice you to gather a group of maybe 7-15 fellow organizers who can work well as a team, if you don't already have one. 12-15 would be best, to handle: Tips on administration: Out-game 1.

Whoa, look how time flies. The main season here is pretty much over already, though there'll be some in June and one more large one later in the year, around August/September. hopefully by then we'll have our new hardware up.

Just to put in a mention for logistical application of RC planes/helis, gliders. Unfilled water balloons are generally quite light, even in large quantities. In hilly, multi-storey urban and difficult terrain battlefields, airborne delivery solutions could reduce time running about grabbing stuff. ...

Wars here are usually concentrated around non-exam periods, like the past 3 months with 5 large wars. We rarely do training outside real-war time, aside from the occasional cannon maintenance and firing. The next war on my itinerary is the 400-man one, this saturday, how they're going to execute th...

It's nice to live here near the equator in that respect, the only thing that will stop us is rain, organization and exams. We've had three wars already, you can read a bit about the third and second on WWc, as well as some photos. That's not the end though, there's going to be one more next week as...

Always good to start early. Hope to see lots of battle reports and new tactics! We just bought 15,000 water balloons, and have had a small war already with 2 more scheduled wars. Also tested out a new control point system, will post when I have time.

As reiterated by many of the opinions here, headshots will happen. Fortunately, with streams of water, they aren't too dangerous. Still, despite this, we discourage it locally. At the least the guy who hit the victim in the face should make sure he's ok; in the spirit of sportsmanship. Many other p...
