A guest Editorial written by ZionT
ZionT wrote:Let me know what you think...

I wanted to take my shot at ranting and raving about whatever struck my fancy and what better forum than Newshound as my first guest editorial! I suppose I’ll try to keep my topic of discussion focused though that can be difficult for me, like waxing cars: “wax on, wax off, wax on… Mouth Off!” and I’m not even as good as Michelangelo or Ralph Macchio. Anyways, what I wanted to talk about was the ever exciting variation on tournament play known to some as the “throwdown”. By some, I mean to me. This is a lot like in Braveheart where young Wallace (played by an ego maniac drunk) challenges his buddy Harnish to a rock throwing contest. If you remember, they literally throw rocks at each other like the Scots are known to do. However rabblerousing this activity may seem, don’t try this at home. That is unless you’re Scottish in which case, it’s in your blood to kill each other off. So, how does this apply in CC?

Well, the closest thing to pelting each other’s faces in Conquer Club is the dynamic world of the “throwdown” (maybe clan wars are closer, but I prefer my version). I’m referring specifically to a best of 15 set of games where both players play 3 sets in an epic showdown of machismo and general tomfoolery. The player “throwing down” picks 6 maps (2 per set) and the player being called out picks 6 maps and of course each picks settings and they duel. The last game of each set is better set at “random map” with no cards, chained settings. Essentially, it’s your best versus another player’s best (on standard, sequential obviously as it’s the only really sane way to play 1v1).

Por ejemplo: ZionT v. sailorseal

3 sets (1st set – the other two would be the same)
Arms Race!: no cards, chained (my pick)
Battle of Actium: flat rate, adjacent (my pick)
Battle of Iraq!: no cards, unlimited (random)
Berlin 1961: flat rate, chained (sailor’s pick)
Greenland: no cards, adjacent (sailor’s pick)

How much more badass does it get? Really? I dare you to think of something more badass. If you’re thinking John Cusack in “Better off Dead…”, then yes, that’s more badass. Otherwise, this is basically the pinnacle of badassness.

Why play 1v1 this way? Basically, I think it’s a fantastic way to determine skill in a tournament style that should remove luck from the equation while allowing for an exquisite combination of skill in map picking, skill in setting creation, and variability in game play. The “mixed bag” random game should delineate players’ versatility on the maps of CC and is a good tie breaker. I loved this playing style with the few players I’ve had a chance to throw down with and I have a feeling you will to. Tourney makers who so often choose 1v1 as the setting, try this out! Or when challenging friends, try this set up. It may create a lot exciting conversation.

Seriously, what could be better than a good old fashioned Greco-Roman style throwdown?

Cool thread of the week: Top CC Tourney players thanks to Blitzaholic http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=91285

Until next time folks…

Ask the Nutts (a Q&A session; a cross between Dear Abby and Cliff Claven)

(an explanation of what it is all about)
Members, especially new members are encouraged to send in questions to "The Nutts". The three Nutts brothers will do their best to answer the questions.

R. Nutts, PHD – doctorate English, the Official Conquer Club expert
H. Nutts, MBA – looks at the business/economic/efficient side of things
A. Nutts, BS – lesser educated of the trio, gives a layman’s viewpoint

Have a question for the Nutts? PM David Hoekstra, Gozar, or click here and post in the thread.
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-

Wow, it’s been two months since the last set of 3 questions – and #3 was repeated, but:

Q "1) Are the three Nutts anything like the Three Musketeers? 2) What does the future hold for Tournaments? 3) Why did you spell Nuts with 2 T's?” Sailorseal

A1 R Nutt, PhD: No, we are brothers – not friends. The future for Tournaments is limited only by the imagination of CC. Nutts has 2 T’s because our ancestors spelled it that way.

A2 H Nutts, MBA: Yes, in the sense that we are three kindred spirits with similar souls -- just different perspectives. The future of Tournaments is a question best asked of Tournament Directors, etc. The truth is one of our ancestors stuttttttttered when spelling it at immmmmigration.

A3 - A Nutts, BS: No, the Three Musketeers candy bar has no nuts. The Future holds whatever Tournaments gave it to hold. Because we like TT’s. Think of Jacqueline Bissette without 2 TT’s. . .or all the Annettes, Anntoinettes, Bette’s, Nicolette’s, Margarette’s, Yvettes, etc. would not be the same without TT’s.

Q "Can you guys write a brief history of CC? SuicidalSnowman

A1 R Nutt, PhD: I’m too new to know the history… Sailorseal should have someone answer.

A2 H Nutts, MBA: Conquerclub developed from an online version of Risk. Variations were developed (different maps, moves, reinforcements, etc.). Chat was included, forums, etc. that’s the 10 second version.

A3 Guest Nutt sailorseal: Captain Scarlet will field this one
Captain_Scarlet wrote:Sunday January 1 2006 lackattack delivered conquer club. From humble beginnings the registered users have now swelled to 360,669 with a strong active core of players of various ranks.

The array of maps has grown steadily over time, due to the efforts of a small group of dedicated contributors and currently number 136. The removal of the original Classic map not forgotten by first and second generation players.

The Society of Cooks was implemented by Twill (retired admin) to assist new players and continues to fulfill its charter "Train a Cook today, lose to a Sergeant tomorrow"

The clan system has evolved other time and the number of clans giving rise to the CLA, instituted to give a more structured role for our clans and competitions.
Clans, for those unfamiliar, are member organized and run groups of people. They may share similar styles of play, geographic location, other varying interests, or perhaps may just be a group of friends looking to get together in some organized fashion. Clans are what you make them, that is the beauty.

The forums always attract both critics and fans and possibly account for less than 5% of active members, often controversial, sometimes humorous and never dull. The merits of the removal of Flame Wars forum still debated.

Change can be rapid, over time the introduction of friends & foes, the medal system, speed games and other enhancements has changed the dynamics of the site but often change is slow -

by Twill on Mon Jan 23, 2006 1:56 am
Would be great to have the option to make a game private or "by invitation only"
Especially as the site grows, would be nice to be able to choose, limit to, or invite certain players...high level, friends, family etc.
Just a thought

#2) last AtN set of 3 questions (again, #3 was reasked recently)

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-

Wow, it’s been two and a half months and no questions, then 5, well:

Q " Are these nuts yummy? Do they have a hard shell? Are they salted? Are they roasted? Why did you spell Nuts with 2 T's?” Sailorseal

A1 R Nutt, PhD: These nuts are always yummy because of their natural taste and texture. They have normal Shells. Not salted, but au naturel. We will get roasted at the end of the year. Because our ancestors spelled it that way.

A2 H Nutts, MBA: It depends on whether you like to eat nuts or not. R is harder than most, A is a little soft, but my girl friend says I’m jusssst righttttt. We were assaulted once. R and I have been roasted, but A is usually “baked.” The truth is one of our ancestors stuttttttttered when spelling it at immmmmigration.

A3 - A Nutts, BS: My girlfriend thinks so. Wait, H’s girlfriend says that I’m the hardest. Not so much salty as sweaty. Like H said, I like to get baked. Because we like TT’s. Think of Jacqueline Bissette without 2 TT’s. . .or all the Annettes, Anntoinettes, Bette’s, Nicolette’s, Margarette’s, Yvettes, etc.

But then again, we now have the newsletter editor, in what I imagine to be an official position, posting up curse words.

I sincerely hope we can hear from higher up that this is NOT CC's official stance, and that better editorial judgment will be used in the future.

So I am to read this as that the policy of conquer club is to exercise no editorial control over the interview section of the newsletter, or would that include the whole newsletter?

OK guys look at this qoute from the thread in C & A

Sailor can you conduct an interview appropriate for a 12-year-old?

Please can someone lock this thread.

Being 12 is not an excuse to deliberately insult 7-10% of the population.

But being 12 does excuse inability to be PC in re of sensitive topics. And his age also excludes him from being tried as an adult.

Get off of him. Get over it. Move on. colton stop talking.

Alright everyone, this issue seems to have hit a few nerves across the board. I'm issuing a temporary topic lock to let people walk away from their keyboards for a bit and cool their heads.

Lockerbots... roll out!
