CC Dispatch [Issue 48: 27-05-2011] The Three Apocalypses

Welcome Comrades to the 48th edition of the Dispatch :)

Yes, my comrades, three apocalypses. Allow me to explain my clever metaphor in a convenient numbered list:

  1. May 21st, 2011 - The beginning of the end, or so says Harold Camping. Are we all sinners doomed to die in a massive earthquake on October 21st, 2011, and be condemned to burn in the agonizing flames of hell? Are you going to waste precious, waning time on reading this edition of the CC Dispatch? Well, we on the Newsletter Staff would like to thank you for spending your End Times with us.
  2. The Second Second Coming - Another Conquerer has silently strolled in to rule once again, except he's not here to rapture his faithful friends. Yes, Blitzaholic is back in the virtual flesh to take back what ljex and rabbiton briefly enjoyed. Thankfully this Conquerer won't be condemning us all to hell!...or so we hope...
  3. The Horsemen - A heated clan war is taking place between The Horsemen of the Apocalypse (THOTA) and the Bulletproof Bandits (BpB). Nominated by the subject of this issue's interrogation as "Best Thread of the Year", will Blitz be able to swoop in and help his Horsemen clean house, or is it too late for our asterisked hero to play Mrs. Doubtfire?

Also, a shout-out to all you Newsletter Subscribers: Thanks for subscribing! We at the Dispatch are honored to be your number one source of CC news and entertainment! For those of you that haven't subscribed but want to, click here!

A streamlined issue of the freestyle news but for all those mafia addicts we have an extended Scum Insider, complete with a mini interview with CC's longest running mafia player fircoal so every cloud has a silver lining. You're in for a shock when you 'read' DoomYoshi's random game analysis and we pick JoshyBoy's brains in our regular newsletter interrogation.

Hey, folks! Unfortunately this issue is rather bare, due to technical difficulties with the Foundry Featurette and OliverFA has been quite busy lately. But, this issue, I do bring you the next Foundry Talk topic and a Map Spotlight with RedBaron0! Enjoy ;)

It's been an interesting fortnight in the clan world, both inside and out. Latest news has it that the BpB-Thota war has been locked again due to the controversy engendered therein, and discomfiting rumors abound on Conqueror's Cup initial wars not being applicable for medal hand-outs.

My co-reporter for this issue Jigger1986, and I have updates on the situation for the Conquerors and Newcomers Cups respectively, but there are also events in the 1v1 Challenge where Empire and FOED both reach the final, and particularly noteworthy is the inspirational display by The Spanking Monkeys in holding off IA's entrance to the Clan League Final with a determined stand in Game 8794802 - a game written off by many more than a month ago.

No hard balls this time... :cry:
But... It was so artistically done.

Objection.
Conqueror's Club 2 Update:
The C&A thread opened by Bones2484 against josko.ri has nothing directly to do with the current challenge. No proper decision could ever have been handed down in time to impact that challenge. It *IS* true that some of the events mentioned as evidence occurred during the current challenge, but in NO way is the C&A thread an attempt to influence a challenge in progress.

I consider the implication that the thread was INTENDED to affect the challenge (A recent twist in the tale comes in however as G1 open a C&A case against Kort star-player josko.ri, stay tuned for the details to see what arises from these allegations.) to be offensive.

The C&A thread exists only to clarify "Account Sitting" and "Account Sitting Abuse". G1 believes we observed the latter, and as such, reported it.

Thanks Kinnison, well said. Very poor writing/decision by whoever included that in our challenge with KORT. If we intended the C&A report to be used as a reason to seek for forfeits then Chuuuuuuck and possibly jpcloet would have been informed, but they have absolutely nothing to do with it and neither were informed about the thread before it was made.

If you notice, no one from G1 has participated in the "if the Josko bust goes down" thread in the clan forums. Frankly, I find it extremely poor taste that such a thread even exists before a decision has even been made by the admins/cheating team.
