You guys are all welcome to make that horrible 16 hour drive to MI anytime HBWW's in season. (Which, technically, won't be until after this war.)
Anyways, the news already broke out, but I forgot to mention it here. I managed to clear up my schedule, book a flight, and will be attending this war as a new member of the SS Liberation Front! Sorry to SEAL for being unable to join the brotherhood, but marauder's my ride there from the airport anyway. That's my excuse at least. If you need one more person to be an asshole to you guys with this whole rivalry thing in order to boost team morale, I'd happily oblige with the trash talking, but I'd like to at least get to know you guys in person first lol.
Fishfan, good luck. That tuition's probably enough to equip and train an unstoppable soaking team; I hope it's well worth it for you.
Now, perhaps if I got in here earlier, I'd have more of a say in our playlist and inject a few hours of HBWW-dictated playtime. Next time I guess? Or maybe you guys will have a change of heart and we'll play at marauder's on the last day with some HBWW shenanigans. If you guys aren't coming to MI to experience the kind of wars I host, then I can at least try to re-create the HBWW experience in another backyard lol. (Although with everyone else lending me guns instead of the other way around, and with the absence of the VHS, dual Max-D pistols, and the Oozinator.)
Hey, my wars are fun, I swear! They're only boring when people don't want to play, which admittingly happens now and then, but they're not true, forum-posting, blaster-repairing, good water warriors anyway.
However, I will say that all the CPS's mingling with water balloons and 2x stream blasters, as well as the equipment mentioned earlier, do influence the character of my wars a lot. I don't know if others out there host wars quite like HBWW's with an awkward mix of both a serious and laid-back atmosphere.
Edit: Marauder, are you downsizing your armory like DX is? Because I'd trade an old laptop or two for a few guns.
I'm most interested in the following from DX's recent armory pic, but may be interested in other guns, particularly if they have some or a lot of combat effectiveness and I don't own any models of.
- CPS 1500/1700, 3200/3000
- SS 300
- Colossus 1st gen, Defender.
There's three laptops up for grabs. Specs (pictures/videos upon request):
1: Loose screen lid, around 14"ish. AMD Turion dual core 1.83 GHz, 2GB DDR2 RAM (dual channel), 150 GB HDD, some crappy onboard graphics. 1280x800, webcam/mic
2: 15.4" (or 15.6"), AMD Turion dual core 2.33 GHz (or 2.00, I forgot), 3GB DDR2 RAM (not dual channel), 150 GB HDD, crappy onboard graphics. 1280x800, webcam/mic.
3: 15.6", AMD Athlon dual core 2.00 GHz, 2GB DDR2 RAM (dual channel), 320 GB HDD, nVidia 8200m onboard graphics, 1366x768, no webcam, just mic.
I may only be able to bring two of these laptops at a time. Will come with power adapter, battery (old Li-Ions that are not able to hold a charge for long) and maybe one cheap/small 800 DPI mouse if wanted.
