CC Dispatch [Issue 114] Moving Along

Postby Dukasaur on Wed Apr 02, 2014 3:30 pm

Welcome to the 114th edition of the CC Dispatch!..

This has definitely been a month of new programs. Some of the highlights:

DoomYoshi's Monthly Challenge series has gone through the next step in its evolution. If you participate in this month's Southern Eclipse Challenge, you'll find it's the first one with automated scoring. It's hard to believe that only 14 months have gone by since Doom launched the idea as a completely unofficial and unauthorized initiative. Now, it is one of the core events on the site.

On March 25th, Dhallmeyer announced the newest SoC Academy initiative, the new Guide Program. As Dhallmeyer explains, "the purpose of these games is to familiarize new players with the site and help them get started. We're looking for people with a heart for helping, 1v1 prowess not required."

On the night of April 9th - 10th, the server was down for 2 hours while some essential work was done on the CC database. A lot of it is administrative stuff that isn't very interesting to write about, but some of it had to do with reconfiguring the database to help increase speed and reduce lag, which I know will please many people!

Sempaispellcheck, former head of the Entertainment Department and now the newest Tournament Director, is launching a new program. It's big, it's ambitious, it's more than just a tournament, and if anyone can carry it off it will be sempai.

Platoon Report

Welcome to another edition of the Platoon Report, where we seek to bring you the latest happenings in the clan world here on Conquer Club!

First order of business this issue: the Clan Directors and Friends have decided how to incorporate the exciting relegation format in to Clan League 7, and sign-ups for Clan League 6 are set to close on March 15th. The Clan Directors are looking for volunteers to be Division Directors. The details are outlined in the post linked, but they include ensuring clans set up, fill, and communicate their games on time, and help maintain the division threads with maps used and other information. It is an important roll and helps the whole event run smoothly, so please consider whether you can help make CL6 excellent.

This edition of the Platoon Report, IcePack brings us the March 15 and April 1 updates to the F400, where a the #1 rank has changed hands. I take a look at who joined a new clan in the month of March, and announce the roster of the new clan Phoenix in my monthly Shakers and Movers column.

Thanks for checking out the Platoon Report - best of luck on the CC battlefield to all our readers.

March 15 F400 Update by IcePack
The F400 is a results based ranking system, based on (almost) all available results that include 12 games or higher. Most league results are reflected within this ranking system, as well as most wars*. (*Unless leagues do not meet some minimum entry requirement criteria, and wars with multiple clans involved).

War Games [Issue 114]

Hello friends, and welcome to your favourite part of the Newsletter, "War Games", where you can find information about CC Tournaments, and other stuff in the Tournament scene!

We continue to deliver our news staples with iAmCaffeine's monthly update of Tournament Winners in the recently introduced Monthly Tournament Winners, mcshanester29's latest MTTO Interview with jdean1, my update of TPA happenings in TPA Wrap, and I have also added one of my occasional Tournament Tips which is an update on an earlier article taking account of the recent additions and improvements in game types.

It is with some trepidation that I tackle my first "War Games" issue, though the groundwork that anamainiacks and, before then, Dukasaur, have established, together with contributions from a great team makes it far easier than I anticipated. However, I will still need ideas and contributions for future issues from you guys out there, so contact me!

Good Reading and Good Luck!

Starting with Issue 115, we will no longer be publishing on our bimonthly schedule. There will be one major issue on the 2nd of every month, and there will be one or more mini-issues in between. If there are no major celebrations planned on CC, the default date for the mini-issue will be the 16th. However, if there are major events happening or major announcements, the date of the mini-issue may be moved to suit the event. In some cases, there may be more than one mini-issue. The main issue, on the 2nd of the month, will be a firm date.

Dukasaur and team (to paraphrase a friend of mine), many thanks for all the incredible work you have done, are doing, and will do to keep us all up-to-date on the many exciting goings-on here on CC - and of course, thank you for helping me get the word out about the FCCFP! :D

Update - for those looking to get into the FCCFP, spots are filling up rather quickly! Only 120 are still available as of this precise moment, so if you want in, get in now while the getting is good! Remember, the longer you wait, the less likely you are to get your favorite country.

iAmCaffeine, you missed the 5th answer. Unfortunately, the answer you provided is from Issue 105: viewtopic.php?p=4234131#p4234131 (article Where the CC4 Wars Are by The Voice)

Which is dated 16-10-2013 and not July 18th 2013. I see you copied the article date, but you forgot it is the template date and not the real date. So, if you can't find the answer for 5th question, I think you can't deduct me a point for it. That is just invalid question and I think you should discard it completely (deducting a point from ffraid too).
