Welcome Comrades to the year 2014 and the 110th edition of the Dispatch
Our 8th Anniversary has come and gone. 8 years old, the Club Conquête now is! Venerable! Ancient!
Okay, shut me up while there's still time...
As always, Battle Royales were included in the Anniversary celebration. There were a total of 263 speed games on the weekend. 856 unique players participated (or about seven percent of the membership) and each player that participated played an average of 7.87 games.
For the second time, casual BRs were created after the speed BRs. Casual BRs are continuing to be created today. Check the link here to see if there are any still available when you receive this.
Casual BRs are, to me, a real sign of CCs evolution. I remember in 2011, during the 5th Anniversary celebration, when there were maybe two or three of us asking for sequential BRs, (link) and the rest of us were telling us that we were basically idiots, that casual BRs could never work. Then, after much pushing and prodding, Game 10000000 was made sequential and casual, and proved that the concept works. Incredibly, after that sequential BRs were still snubbed in the 6th Anniversary. I had this to say about it! During the 7th Anniversary, a handful of sequential BRs were created, but now, in the 8th Anniversary, we finally have casual BRs, both sequential and freestyle, and in sufficient numbers created over a sufficient time span to allow everyone a shot at them. Thank you, blake!
