Welcome Comrades to the 85th edition of the Dispatch :)

Well the season is upon us yet again! Congratulations to all of you who successfully avoided all that 2012 threw at you this year - commiserations to those of you who couldn't. Another action packed issue provides: an interview with El-Jefe; strategy tips on Forbidden Cities and AoR 3 and a challenge to turn those into Official Guides - who's going to snap up the GCs on those?; a veritable smorgasbord of tips and infor in the Tournament section - too much to mention here; same for Foundry - do those guys never sleep?; and consideration of the new Clan sitting rules. Something for everyone there!

But before you get stuck into that, consider this:

  • A Partridge in a Pear Tree - El-Jefe - One site administrator
  • Two Turtle Doves - rdsrds2120and king achilles - Two super mods
  • Three French Hens - kentington, strike wolf and MeDeFe - Three Global mods
  • Four Calling/Collie Birds - SoC, Strategy Forum, Foundry Notes and Newsletter - The Four Gospels of Strategy
  • Five Golden Rings - Super Achievements, Game Achievements, Community Achievements, Contributions and Ratings - The bling we wear
  • Six Geese-a-Laying - Community Interviews, Strategy, Tournaments, Foundry, Clan and Freestyle - the divisions in the Dispatch that bring you back time and again
  • Seven Swans-a-Swimming - Seven gifts purchased from the gift shop - take your choice!
  • Eight Maids-a-Milking - I'm sure there are more than eight female players on this site ;-)
  • Nine Ladies Dancing - Ah, some more!
  • Ten Lords-a-Leaping - Go you galant lads
  • Eleven Pipers Piping - What are your favourite eleven maps?
  • Twelve Drummers Drumming -Entertainment Team, Cartographers, Tournament Directors, Clan Directors, Academy Team, Discussions Team, Chatters, Suggestions Team, Multihunters/Cheating/Abuse Team, Tech Team, International and Global Moderators/Administrators - thank you for another year of distraction, diversion, creation and scintillation!


Enjoy the fruits of our labouring fingers!

Happy Holidays Freestylers. Apologies for the late issue, El_Jefe was a bit busy with admin things. But he managed to find the time to talk about the direction he wants CC to go, his interests outside of CC, and his secret plans for world domination.
You Stay Classy, CC.

Welcome one and all to another helping of Strategy.

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

This issue Jippd shares his wisdom on Forbidden Cities - which frankly I was pleased about because it was a map I struggled with. As a one off, we have also received an article by Ahava on AoR - would be interesting to hear what others think about that. These articles get us close to Official Guides and it would be interesting to see if anyone wanted to piggy-back on these good peoples' work to the extent of preparing guides for the Strategy Forum. First in, first served - get your GC medals now - just in time for Christmas! And for the rest of you, whether you too want to do a one off or you have aptitude to get more involved, sing out cause we need more Strategy content!

Stay clever!

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

The TPA3 Cup Design Contest is now over. Congratulations to all the winners! I would announce who they are, but I don't want to take the spotlight off of Dave's TPA Wrap. Scroll down and check it out!

In this issue you will find another one of my little retrospectives, this time featuring the tourneys of 2006. You will find another installment of Dave's Tournament Tips, as well as the longest-running continuing series in the Dispatch, Join This? Or Not! by WC4 James.

But first, turn your attention to an article by generalhead. This very productive writer is officially a Foundry reporter, but he has twice now produced a wonderful article for us here in War Games, and is working on his third!

Foundry dispatch is a little light this issue, but with good reason. Everyone is off getting blotto and ready for the holidays. But we have the usual run down of maps in development, another competition for you, generalhead gives us his opinion on the Christmas map and a few stocking fillers. Lastly, and this is a late addition, but with the cairnswk interview coming in the next edition, I bring to you our own one. generalhead wanted to speak to him as he is one of the best. Might give you all some follow on questions for the main one next issue. The competition has got some new rules, so make sure you read them. Lets leave now in a chorus of Santa' favourite song.Image

But set your alarm clocks for next issue. A massive foundry dispatch section is being prepared with lots of goodies for all the good girls and boys.

It's been another fortnight of action as we welcome in the festive season with tonights Platoon Report. The highlight of late has been the unveiling of the Clan Sitting Rules by the Clan Directors. Account-sitting has been a contentious issue for a goodly while yet, with Clan members being involved in some significant cases, so the CD's thought it sound to outline the Guidelines for what is and isn't permissible with regards to Sitting when within the purview of Clans. The rules have generated a spate of discussion, with already over 22 pages of replies at the time of going to press, so our itinerant reporter Swifte is here to give us a run-down of the Rules, and the main points from the community reaction.

In other Developments, I present the latest from the 1v1 Challenge, and wax philosophical on Conquerors Cup 3!

If there are any wars or related events that you'd like to bring to the attention of the newsletter, I urge you to send me a snippet of what you'd like covered to spotlight you clan, or indeed compose an article for the Dispatch yourself!

Wow El-Jefe lives in Bali! How does he get anything done? It is such an idyllic island (just visiting for 12 days at present) I guess he came here on visit and didn't leave.

Some good answers, but I'm still sooooooo confused about who owns the site and who gets paid to work on it.

Q. Do you intend to try to win back the mapmakers we lost to other sites? Going forward, how do you plan to work with our hardworking, valuable cartographers?

We will make the process easier and faster for them to add maps. We will add more players so maps get user feedback more quickly.



This will be interesting to see, what kind of offer he can give to mapmakers who go to other site???

Only the hyperactives in the foundry could have six articles and still say, "Foundry dispatch is a little light this issue,". Jesus. In my section we have five articles this time, and I consider it obese!

It was a light issue. Intro was written then the cairnswk interview appeared and we put our one in this week to stop a clash, nobodies goes on a quenching frenzy.
