Outback Nerf sent the above photo my way. Apparently a tournament called the “Powerplay Tournament” is giving out a new Elite Spectre, Elite Alpha Troopers, and Hail-Fire’s as prizes for this tournament, as well as cash prizes to the top winners. Interesting isn’t it? Registration opens May 31, and the event takes place from June 21-23. Check their official site for more info on the event.
You can’t quite see it in the screenshot that I took above, but the top prize bracket are for the 18-55 age group. I’m glad to see that their embracing the older audience of Nerf over there. Adding up all the cash money prizes, that’s $3,600 their handing out! Talk about high stakes.
As for the Elite Spectre, it looks pretty nifty. There’s a lot of White and Blue on it, which isn’t a bad thing. I just used to seeing more orange it. I was planning on trying out the Rapidstrike with an original Spectre barrel on it, but now that this is coming out, it’s attachments just begging to get added to all the Elite blasters currently.
