«Be water, my friend» from Basel, Switzerland (Europe)

Post by Cyrioz » Wed Jul 09, 2014 2:54 pm

May I present to you: «Be water, my friend», a group from Basel Switzerland.

Our Facebook group is open to people who live in or near the city or are currently staying there: https://www.facebook.com/groups/455541181145815/

It all began with my own armory, consisting of just one CPS blaster and some others, weaker guns. I decided to launch this group, because soaking other people was one of the greatest things as a child and I planned to continue this rediscovered hobby as a young adult.

The friends I've invited were all having a great deal of fun and asked me to organize these events on a regular basis. From time to time I there was one or another CPS Blaster for sale on Ebay, and my armory began to grow. Notice that the old Super Soakers are even much rarer in Europe than in the US. Shipping from the US was not a real option, because of the costs, but I made an exception for two CPS 2500.
(For interested people I may note that there are much more 1500/1700s to buy in Europe (especially Germany) than they are 2500s. It seems that this is the other way than in the US, where the first mentioned are much more expensive than the last ones.)

By now, I've collected about ten CPS Blasters, which seems to be enough at the moment. I also fulfilled a dream to build my own APH with a 10 liter canister on my back. The PVC parts were hard to get and not cheap, but it works like a charm. I will upload the details later in a seperate post.
In the last weeks a friend and I built the "UberSoaker", which is CO2-powered as in the instruction here: http://www.thehalls-in-bfe.com/UberSoak ... oaker.html
We're currently working on a backpack to carry this monster.

Here some impressions of our group:

Welcome to WaterWar.net! Looks like you guys have a decent collection and no shortage of soaking events.

Have you guys tried playing other game types? Hit based? Capture-the-flag?
