Welcome Comrades to the 103rd edition of the Dispatch Swifte here, and I must say I'm very happy to be bringing you another fine edition of the only Conquer Club Newsletter out there! We know you have no choice when it comes to where to get your CC news, and so we will just have to keep providing it!
With the pace of change around Conquer Club since the new administration began, there is much to talk about yet again! Here's a look at all the late-breaking news:
The first regular section is Mess Hall, which has a neat feature on turns in a game by StubbsKVM and the Dispatch's own Dukasaur as well as the Scum Insider and a look at all the events going on with SOS Africa. The planned interview of Qwert will be published in a future edition.
The Platoon Report covers all aspects of the Clan scene, including an exclusive look at the entries in the Clan Icon contest.
War Games reaches a milestone in the Meet the Tournament... interview series, and is offering a contest with multiple General Achievement Medals available, in addition to their great regular features on the Tournament world.
Cartographic Surveillance includes a report on the current maps in development, and a close look at the Phantasia Altitudinis map.
Finally, our Next Mission Brief includes such things as the closing credits and information on how to subscribe.
Welcome to another issue of the Platoon Report, where we're keeping you up to date on everything going on in the CC Clan world.
First up I have a friendly reminder that the Clan Directors are looking for a few more dedicated volunteers to join their team, and applications are still being accepted. For more details, see this post. Follow the instructions and get your applications in as soon as possible.
This issue, clan freelance reporter trinicardinal goes to great lengths to bring us a report live from battlefield of the 3rd 1v1 Clan Challenge. We thank him for his dedication and wish him a safe return!
As has been announced, Qwert has resigned his post as organizer of the Clan League 5 event, and Keefie has taken the reigns. Many thanks to Qwert for his dedication in running such a massive event as CL5, as well as regularly reporting here on the event. Due to the transition, we don't have a full article this time around, but we do have the updated League Tables for you. Stay tuned to next issue for a more thorough report! Another of our regular reporters, IcePack, is taking a well-deserved rest from reporting this week, so we'll get a full update on CC4 next issue as well.
We do have one last piece of news! Early in September the Clan Directors announced a contest for a new design to clan icons, which are expected to be integrated into the site in more ways thanks to efforts of the new site administration. The entries are in, and a vote has been put to the members of the Clan Directors & Friends group. Our last article below reveals the four options on which the clan representatives will be voting.
Hello friends, and welcome to your favourite part of the Newsletter, "War Games", where you can find information about CC Tournaments, and other stuff in the Tournament scene! We have another meaty issue this week (or for our vegetarian readers, a 'vegetably' issue), with 5 General Achievement Medals up for grabs!
In this issue, the Tournament Team is proud to celebrate our 50th "Meet the Tournament..." interview! Yes indeed, this issue's interview with benga marks the 50th player we have interviewed. As part of our 50th Interview Celebration, we have a special article with the entire archive of the 50 players interviewed thus far, as well as a trivia competition where you stand a chance to win 1 of 5 General Achievement Medals!
"Meet the Tournament..." Interview Archive - 50 & Counting!by anamainiacks
For the rest of the issue, mcshanester29 brings us yet another interview from the war front, this time from war veteran, benga (as mentioned earlier); DaveH presents his trusty Tournament Tips and the usual TPA Wrap; while anamainiacks gives us the run down on the latest TPA4 and Official Tournaments currently taking signups in Join This? Or Not!
A light one on sections for Issue 103 but lots of maps in development, and Koontz1973 shines a spotlight on his very own Phantasia Altitudinis.
Ethiopia by cairnswk has received it's XML stamp and should be in BETA soon. This will be number 36 for Conquer Club's Greatest Cartographer. We can't thank you enough cairnswk, keep up the amazing work!
>>>Note a slight change in the content of these tables. Qwert only included sets where all 8 games were finished. Keefie has decided to update the tables as soon as a result is decided (so when one team wins 5 games). This results in the points being added to the tables slightly faster. Thanks to Keefie for updating the tables. <<< small correction,, i add points immediately when some clan have lead 5-0 or 5-1 or 5-2,, but not incude Games in G, because i waith that this mach become finished, so i dont know where you make this conclusion that now points will be add faster?
When some team have decision lead i add in section-P W-D-L and Points,, only G and GD are update when all games of this match are finished,, please make corrections in article.

I brought this up a while ago.
Yeah, the fact is it was a cumbersome process and I didn't have time for it with taking over as Clan Exec at the time. However, I have a new idea on how to do it that takes advantage of the new Clan tab, so I'm going to give it a shot again.
The deadline for the MTT Trivia Contest has ended. Entries will no longer be accepted, and the answers, results and prizes shall be released with the next issue of the Dispatch. Thanks to all who participated!
