CC Dispatch [Issue 56: 05-10-2011] TBK: The Other White King

Welcome Comrades to the 56th edition of the Dispatch :)

Hey, hey, hey! Sully here with another exciting edition of the CC Dispatch! With Dukasaur's taking over for jricart, the previous Tournament Executive, can you believe I'm now the veteran? :o Makes one think back on his experiences, where he started, etc. I remember when natty_dread was flying the pink flag and "subliminally" recruited me onto his team of Foundry Reporters (and by "subliminally", I mean he made a callout in the Foundry Discussions forum that I never noticed, then a month later I read an issue of the Dispatch and thought it would be fun to write for the Foundry section). I remember dolomite13's short stint as the Foundry Executive, then when I took over around Issue 43. Can you believe I've been doing this for 14 issues? *Nostalgic sigh*

Anywho, what I mean to say is, writing for the Dispatch has been one of the greatest privileges I've had on ConquerClub, and I know there are some of you out there that would get just as much, if not, more enjoyment out of writing on our staff. We're always looking for writers and reporters, but we are particularly in need now! As you may have noticed, the Freestyle section has been bare for a time now, and safariguy5 needs your help! And if you're interested in another team, I bet Dukasaur and Leehar would love to have a couple new reporters, as would I. ;)

Anywho, as we eagerly await what follows the Round Limits update, just sit back, sip a cup of tea, and enjoy the issue. We've got an interview with good ol' The Bison King (responsible for such maps as Thyseneal, Celtic 7 Nations and California), the Tournament Team's WorldCup4James has his first article for you all, the Foundry section is looking sexier than ever, and either horsemen are getting spanked by monkeys, or the monkeys are being trampled by Armageddon-esque equines. I hope you enjoy the issue just as much as we have putting it together!

Hello again lovers of the Freestyle Section. It is with a heavy heart that I announce that nagerous is stepping away from the newsletter to focus on his other mod obligations. He was a model executive who's tireless pursuit of- oh screw it. He was a fun guy who made sure the section went out on time and kept the writers contributing.

In other news, a few of my writers have either disappeared (I have no idea why and am positive I'm not involved) or are experiencing technical difficulties. If you would like to write for the Freestyle Section or have an article idea you'd like me to write about, please shoot me a PM.

Hello again my friends, and welcome to your favorite part of the Newsletter, "War Games", where you can find information about CC Tournaments. This issue we again have our three regular features, but with a twist. The TPA Update is presented by regular contributor angola and Join This? Or Not! is presented by regular contributor sonicsteve. Meet The Tournament Winners, however, is for the first time in seven months written by someone other than me!

Please join me in welcoming the newest Tournament section reporter, WorldCup4James! James is no stranger to the world of Tournaments, having a Tournament Victory Cup and 6 Tournament Contribution Medals to his credit, with several others on the way. He jumped right in and produced an excellent interview with deantursx.

Starting soon, I intend to supplement our Meet the Tournament Winners feature with Meet the Tournament Organisers and Meet the Tournament Directors. This will require some help, I think. Adding James to the team has been a big step, but I think we could definitely use one or two more new reporters. If you write coherently and accurately, and if the world of CC tournaments fascinates you, then this might be the place for you. Please drop me a PM!

In the meantime, please enjoy this issue of War Games!

Enjoy! :)

This week we have relatively slim pickings after a bumper crop last week, where we have a short tale on Tofu's demise by Chariot of Fire with interviewee Ace Rimmer.
Also included is a TSM-THOTA Conquer Cup 2 update by former Dispatch writer Georgerx7di, and a flashback to the past as we look at his Clan War update 18 months ago on the match between these two epic clans which resulted in a 1600 post, and 17000 views behemoth widely regarded as engendering the most electrifying clan war in the history of the game, with intense action as much on as off the board. It's also intriguing how much of a similar course the war has taken, with the current and likely scores almost identical to the dispatch article in Issue 23.

In other news competition continues to heat up the clan scene in the respective tournaments under way. PM me if you have your own clans tale of triumphs to share, and I give props to RA trips master sekretar, for being part of the privileged 150 to achieve a star =D>

Oh for fucks sake, like I have nothing better to do than stalk some guys signatures looking for map ideas... :roll:

You can feel how you want about my maps, I don't really care, but when you start claiming I only make a map because I'm copying your signature, that's just really fucking retarded.


--- on a lighter note, good issue, good work newsletter guys.

So here is the update. Out of the first 40 games, 29 are complete with a score of 17-14 with TSM in the lead.

Great to have a maths teacher in the clan. George's optimism knows no bounds!

Yep, and you managed to create the original Middle Earth map several months before you joined the site. Will wonders never cease?
