CC Dispatch [Issue 58: 01-11-2011] Pandering to You!

Welcome Comrades to the 58th edition of the Dispatch! I was fairly garrulous in my introduction to the War Games section (below) so I will compensate by being unusually sententious up here in the main introduction. After ten months and four days on the newsletter staff, I have for the first time been trusted with the task of taking a turn as overall publisher. Of course, I repaid the trust of my comrades by devising a technical conundrum that had Leehar and Victor Sullivan up all night pulling their hair out as they tried to fix it. I think after today they'll put me back in my playpen with some nice colouring books and some soft crayons!

This issue is absolutely full of great stuff. Look for a sneak preview of Bra Wars, episode 4, which alone is worth the price of admission. I won't tell you where to look for it; you'll just have to enjoy the process of discovery! Pander88uk answers questions from the visitors' gallery, Isaiah40 has a buoyant interview with Industrial Helix, alt1978 reports on the dramatic rise to stardom of several new clans, thehippo8 provides an almost encyclopedic overview of some copyright precedents relevant to our mapmakers, and the Magister Omnia Banana himself makes a special guest appearance in War Games. Have fun exploring!

Hello again everyone, and welcome again to the Freestyle Section. We have another Insider for your mafia edification, and an interview with Pander88uk for your reading pleasure.

I've also come up with some nice Halloween themed ideas, free of charge. No need to credit me if you decide to use them, I kept the really good ones to myself ;) .

Hello again my friends, and welcome to your favorite part of the Newsletter, "War Games", where you can find information about CC Tournaments! I am really thrilled with the way our section is developing. We now have four excellent writers on board (you could stretch it to five if you wanted to be generous to me.) In theory I am their editor, but in practice my "editing" is limited to a few (infrequent) suggestions for improvement and cleaning up an occasional missed underline. These guys never require any hard editing of the kind one is used to doing with volunteer publications. They are just so good, and so professional, and reading the stuff they produce is an absolute delight.

This issue, we launch our newest feature, Meet the Tournament Organisers, which will complement and parallel our existing series, Meet the Tournament Winners. This issue, WorldCup4James has produced the former, while I have produced the latter, but this is not intended to be a fixed division of labour: we both intend to produce interviews of both kinds, and mix and match as we go to keep it fresh. I hope you really enjoy the interviews, the former with fuzzy316 and the latter with EBConquer.

We could hardly avoid mention of CC's new supertournament, the Conquer Cup. In this issue, AndyDufresne makes a special guest appearance to begin our coverage. We will have more in every issue.

Our newest recruit is DaveH, who has come on board to write a series on the nuts-and-bolts of tournament organizing. Like all our other reporters, Dave is an experienced Tournament Organiser himself. And like sonicsteve, he is from Devonshire. Do you suppose there's a conspiracy afoot? Ha! If these guys have half the chutzpah that Sir Francis Drake brought to the table, they will have us conquered (or should I say Conquered) in no time! Dave's first column will be fairly basic, but he will soon be delving into more advanced and complicated issues of tournament organisation. If you have a question about tournaments that you think he should be covering, by all means send him a message.

Angola is on leave; he will have another TPA Update for us in the next issue. Sonicsteve has produced another Join This? Or Not! column. Those keep getting bigger and better; there are just so many exciting new tournaments being launched.

EXCITEMENT!!! A new mapmaker, nrds, recently won the Papua New Guinea contest and a new map is available for play only in Game 10000000 by our own samuelc812! Though we have just three articles for you, I think you'll enjoy them to the fullest, especially isaiah40's Interview with the recently re-inducted Industrial Helix, regarding what happened to him and beyond!

Happy Halloween,

This Issue the inimitable Alt comes up with an enticing view of the spate of upsets traversing through the clan scene, primarily in the ACC arena. The main outlier of course being the continued unbeaten charge of The Pack, who extend their unbeaten run to 7 challenges, getting close to the 8/9 and 11/12 benchmarks of Tofu and Thota respectively.
In other news the Final Foursome in the Conquerors Cup seems to be as close as ever. While Kort seem to have eked out a win against Empire, the Tsm-Thota seems to be locked in a dead heat that can only perhaps be resolved in extra time. All eyes eagerly await the outcome.

I'm very awake! It's still miscapitalized in the link ;-) Thanks for actually changing it! I couldn't even get natty to do that during the sig contest. Lol!
