CC Dispatch [Issue 87: 16-1-2013] Cairns-Speak

Welcome Comrades to the 87th edition of the Dispatch :)

Everyone's back from a well earned break - the rest of you who are still away are away: for our protection; for your protection; because you were forgotten; because you forgot us; because you escaped; because we escaped; because you can; or just because! Regardless, if you are still reading this (away or back), welcome and enjoy!

The return of the interviews =D> Cairnswk gets roasted. Heaps happening in Clans, Tournaments and Foundry - too much to repeat here. And strategy is getting traction.

Hope you are enjoying the Dispatch. Note that it has had a little bit of a shuffle. We would love your input, ideas, suggestions, article prompts, even a well placed brickbat or two wouldn't hurt. So, sing out!! In the immortal words of Oscar Wilde:

It was a fatal day when the public discovered that the pen is mightier than the paving-stone, and can be made as offensive as the brickbat. They at once sought for the journalist, found him, developed him, and made him their industrious and well-paid servant. It is greatly to be regretted, for both their sakes.


Enjoy the fruit of our labouring fingers!

Hello again my friends, and welcome to your favorite part of the Newsletter, "War Games", where you can find information about CC Tournaments!

I was reading Dave's TPA Wrap, and I was thinking, "Okay, he's got the TPA2 update, and he's got the TPA3 update, but where the %&#$ is the TPA1 update?!?!" And then it came to me -- there is no more TPA1 because TPA1 is finished! Of course, we already reported this to you last issue, but somehow I still hadn't got used to the fact.

The Seventh Anniversary celebrations had the traditional day of Battle Royales, and the the Hippo will tell you all about it in our lead article. DaveH has another installment of his Tournament Tips. James is taking a bit of a break to focus on academic pursuits, so I've done Join This? Or Not! for this issue. Check it out; there's been a few really neat ideas in the Create/Join forum in the last few days. And finally, I have a little bit of personal bragging to do, which constitutes our fifth article.

Enjoy!

Getting back into the swing of things here. So what can we bring you today. Well, firstly, the votes have been allocated and the winner have received their medals. I bring to you the winners from the map awards 2013. Some surprising winners and some not so much. Next year we will run them later in the year so every map gets in. After a break, the Maps in Development is back. New year brings us a huge issue for this one. We have foundry news on the new layout and Battle Royale maps. Lastly, generalhead brings us another look at his Alamo map and how patience is needed in the foundry.

Welcome one and all to another helping of Strategy.

This is the stuff that's important, so listen up!!

This issue we have another brief update from SoCs, thanks macbone! And please welcome back theSaxlad who brings us an article entitled The Strategy Forum Spotlight Presents: xiangwang- Colonel in 100 days!. It does what it says on the tin. Prepare for some heavy strategy tips, take notes, listen up - better still print it off and turn it into wallpaper wherever your computer may be!! Put it next to this from Jarod Kintz:

I consider conversations with people to be mind exercises, but I don't want to pull a muscle, so I stretch a lot. That's why I'm constantly either rolling my eyes or yawning.


Also in this issue, FATHARRY shares his wisdom on Feudal War and Feudal Epic. Prior to this information I shied away from those maps because I just didn't get them. Now I am scalping points on those maps and they are quickly becoming favourites for me! And remember, for those of you looking for an easy GA medal, please get acquanted with the maps in the Collected Wisdom series and go ahead and send your entries into the Official Guides - they need to be done and you get something out of it too. Stay clever!

I think if I could do my section over again I would have mentioned McShanester29's magnum opus
MC's 200th Tournament!! .

An excellent looking tourney. I skipped over it when I was writing JTON because it's almost full, but now I'm thinking I should have mentioned it. Anyway, better late than never: McShanester is looking for 9 more players to get it launched forthwith!

Thank you Cairns for everything you do. An amazing collection of maps. CC wouldn't be the same without you.
