Welcome Comrades to the 32nd edition of the Dispatch :)

This will be my last edition as Editor in Chief of the Dispatch, the time has come to pass the torch to the very committed editors of each section of the newsletter. From now on they will be collectively looking after the newsletter and everything that comes with it. Ever since i started this with gimil almost a year and a half ago, i've seen the newsletter grow from strength to strength and it's been great. I look forward to continue to watch the newsletter grow under the leadership of our dedicated team editors nagerous, natty_dread, laughingcavalier and Sir. Ricco. I also want to thank Gozar for inspiring me to start this newsletter and everyone who has contributed to the newsletter past, present and future, you are the reason the newsletter is still going.

We have a big issue for you, there is something for everyone. We have the results of the "Cook Contest" including the top three entries who feature in this issue of the Dispatch!

We hope you enjoy this issue! :)

We had a hard time selecting winners from the flood of participants, but after some small hours of arguing and bickering, a pillow fight, and a few I Ching consultations, we managed to pick a winner and 2 runner-ups.

As a big surprise - since we had so many fine entries, we have decided to also award the whole top 3. Good luck to the winners!

    Winner and top 3 of the Cook Contest
  • #1 - Darth Emperor - 3 months of premium & general achievement medal
  • #2 - Jatekos - general achievement medal
  • #3 - Emelar - general achievement medal

Just a short edition of the Mess Hall for CC in another jam packed month of special events and updates. Updates this month have included the bolding of the neutral player and renovated army printing as well as a brand spanking new nuclear spoils medal. Then why is the Mess Hall so short this fortnight you ask with so much to write about? One of the main reasons is a lack of writers, so fancy joining the team, then follow the recruitment link posted by samuel above and apply for the freestyle team as we are currently recruiting! This edition, we have an article promoting the new strategy ad-hoc group written by yours truly, another tale from everyone's favourite and elf and an interrogation of jonesthecurl. Hope you enjoy it, I'm now off to get trashed before flying out to Amsterdam tomorrow and who knows what will happen there, hopefully I will be back alive and well on sunday.

Hello all! The Foundry section has gone through a bit of a makeover. Firstly we have divided it into three portions: News, Maps and All The Other Stuff. Those are not the actual names, but decriptive enough. Secondly, the old Maps in development has been canceled, and replaced with 3 separate articles, which collectively form the Maps segment. We hope this way to be capable of even better Foundry reporting.

So, enjoy the all new Foundry section. All feedback for our changes will be most welcome.

#1 = If you keep spending so much time on ConquerClub we might need to look into a divorce.
#2 = Hmm...I bet there is a lawyer on CC that can help with the paperwork.
#3 = At least now it'll be easy to get custody of the kids

#1 = Why must you wear that silly hat whilst you play that game?
#2 = Hmm...your right. You should put it on and go cook me breakfast.
#3 = I guess I'll have to make it myself.

Congrats to Darth Emperor & Emelar!
Thanks for the organizers! I liked the idea of the contest a lot, and I think I had a fair share in the 'flooding'. :) If anyone is interested, these were my other entries:

Title = Keeping fit
#1 = You are not playing on that @*#% website again, are you?
#2 = Maybe I should lose some weight. I think I'll join a CC sports tourney.
#3 = I shouldn't have suggested her to go to the gym regularly.

Title = An unexpected attack
#1 = What are you doing on the web again?
#2 = Hmm, should I attack from the North or from the South?
#3 = I thought we had a truce. I'll give her a poor rating.

Title = Taking the hits
#1 = You said you will be working from home today...
#2 = Red keeps hitting me and breaking my Africa bonus each round. What shall I do?
#3 = Hits in RL hurt more...

Title = Secret diplomacy
#1 = How can you start playing childish games while I am working so hard?
#2 = I have an impression that Blue knows in advance what I will do. I wonder if someone is secretly helping him.
#3 = Apparently, it is my wife. I'll file a C&A complaint.

Thanks jp. Hard to miss with so much excitement in the clans & their contests right now.
And if TOFU are ready to explain just how much better than everyone else they are, that's just sauce for the goose. :D
