Welcome Comrades to the 45th edition of the Dispatch :)

Did you guys had fun with the April's Fool edition? Well, we at the Newsletter Team hope so!, but HighlanderAttack still looking at the points and he PM'ed me asking where the f*** they are! :lol: Keep looking for them amigo… (that was a joke :D , yes not a funny one :roll: )

We've got a some good stuff for this edition of "War Games" including the first article of our new volunteer sonicsteve, a "Beginners guide to hosting a CC tournament."

The Clan section focuses on the Newcomers Cup, Conqueror's Cup 2, and the 1on1 challenge, while the Cartography section also have a new writer volunteer: OliverFA, and he will be discussing the map "Feudal War".

We hope you can find all this information helpful and interesting for you.

Nagerous is busy with real-life for now, so the Mess Hall is a bit barren. With not even a cook around, we have had to survive on coffee and donuts. The Canadians are holding out as they are used to the diet, but everyone else is too lethargic to publish. However, our awesome team have made sure to bring you a high-quality section nonetheless. With SIX GAMES recruiting, now is the time to check out the Scum Insider for the latest mafia news and an in-depth look at a deductive fallacy known as the WIFOM argument. Also returning in this issue is the Random Game Analysis. For the first time ever it's not a 2-player game. FInally The Saxlad introduces a place which may be completely new to you - the international forums. Don't forget to check out the ever-popular Interrogation Room as the CC community grills TOFU's jakewilliams.

Hey, hey, hey, Foundry friends! This edition of Cartographic Surveillance is a little more bare than normal, due to the release of the April Fools issue, but I am happy to bring you our new Reporter, OliverFA's first article! Oliver will be discussing the classics other than Classic - this fortnight, "Feudal War". And join me as I "Celebrate the Foundry!" Enjoy, folks! And as always, feel free to PM me any questions, comments, or applications. :)

Our news this week focuses on the Newcomers Cup, Conqueror's Cup 2, and the 1on1 challenge.
Check out bruceswar's clan icons. Get some more good tips from Blackknight_6 on having fun in your clan. And read Hardballs to find out the Ten Commandments all you clan members must live by.
Big congratulations to Knights of the Round Table who have sealed victory over The Horsemen Of The Apocalypse to make them champions of the first Conqueror's Cup. That's an epic achievement. Opinion is divided as to whether it makes them top clan - but there is broad agreement that they've got to be considered for that spot and that no clan will be able to claim top spot without beating them.
And good luck to the four clans starting their games in the league's playoff semifinals.
Check out all the action in the Active Challenges forum.

Here are the changes/mistakes/missing links/missing questions I found with my interview:

When you get to the middle, do you eat the brown goo?

A: I make her get an enema first.

Least favorite poster?

A: http://www.bopandtigerbeat.com/wp-conte ... in_wr4.jpg

Cali/Insom:
boxers or briefs or neither?

A: boxer briefs during the day (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_hQfQR7kkPwg/T ... 20copy.jpg) and nothing at night (image removed by nagerous for his personal use).

jackal31:
if there was something to change about CC, what would it be?
related
How would you rearrange CC if it was your business?

A: There are quite a few things I'd change/do, and some of them have been done in the past. First I would revamp the moderation staff (of course). I would teach the moderators that it's ok to admit that you're wrong sometimes. I would make it a rule that if a moderator is posting on the forum and/or interacting in live chat outside of their department, there should not be any expectations of behavior above and beyond what a normal user has. Just because you moderate one area of the website, that shouldn't mean you can't feel free to be yourself or express your opinion in other areas of the website. I would enable multiple new ways to pay for premium (via text message for one) and allow monthly/quarterly purchase of premium (at a steep markup, like $5-$10). I would actually spend my time programming updates to the website and have a monthly or quarterly "update day" where something new would come out. I would set up a voting system so the community could help decide which items should be added next. I would work on ways to ensure that the 95% (or whatever) of CC players that don't use the forums have their voices heard on potential updates/changes to the site. I would add Adjacent Attacks as a gaming option (viewtopic.php?f=535&t=51364).

Do you have to beg for it?

A: All sex or just necrophilia?

Have you stopped watching animal porn?

A: Just kitty porn.

Nice dispatch, guys. Leehar is still smarting from getting pounded in the CLA I see. Don't worry, after we're through with Legion maybe we'll give you guys another shot. :)

Nice one Master Fenrir!
Important Tournament Notice

The data for ALL of my tournaments has potentially been lost. I am working to recover it but as I am away on business all of this week, there will be some delay. Sincere apologies.

Lol, I wondered if you'd be offended, I'll try make my digs subtler next time ;)

But we might actually face off in the 1v1 challenge semi's if Empire overcome AoD and we get the extra win we need, so you may yet get a chance to face our wrath sooner rather than later :P

And cla? :-$
