Welcome Comrades to the 111th edition of the Dispatch
Our interview with Catnipdreams is featured here, and ironically it's also Groundhog Day today? Do you think groundhogs like catnip, also? Will the groundhogs perform better today if we feed them some?
With Valentine's Day soon to be upon us, we all start to wonder "what will this year's Annual Valentine's Day special bring?" In past years, it has brought us Cutesy Club, pink fuzzy dice, an epidemic of love, and a Wall of Pink.
So, what will it be this year? If I tell you, will you blow me a kiss through cyberspace? Hush, move closer now! I'm not allowed to tell you much, but I know that Cuddling will be involved, and a lot of sweet talk in Live Chat, and.... wait for it....
Valentine's Day will bring a huge array of contests, events and prizes!
Ok, watch out for official announcements coming up, but in the meantime, here's some more love from around the Club for you:
Welcome Conquer Club clan enthusiasts to another edition of the Platoon Report!
First off, congratulations to Manifest Destiny on winning the first ever edition of the Lindax Handicup, and to Imperial Dragoons member Twopoint on winning the MVP award for the event.
This edition of the Platoon Report, IcePack brings us an update to the F400, including a new number 1 in the rankings... so be sure to check that out! I also take a look at the Shakers and Movers from January 2014, where we've seen another flurry of player movement on the clan scene, including 2 new clans and one clan that has been around since 2009 closing up shop.
Thanks for checking out the Platoon Report - more updates on the major clan events next issue!
The F400 is a results based ranking system, based on (almost) all available results that include 12 games or higher. Most league results are reflected within this ranking system, as well as most wars*. (*Unless leagues do not meet some minimum entry requirement criteria, and wars with multiple clans involved).
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!
In this issue, mcshanester29 takes a personal trip down memory late, reminiscing about the time he organised his first tournament, in Remembering My First Tournament! Hopefully this will inspire some aspiring TOs out there to try your hand tournament organising! We do indeed have a wonderfully supportive community out there that is more than happy to give assistance along the way!
Now pulling double duties for the Freestyle Team and Tournament Team, iAmCaffeine has kindly taken on the responsibility of what I hope will be a regular section in our CC Dispatch for a long time to come - the monthly Tournament Winners Update. I'm really pleased to have him on board, and must say he has done an excellent job so far! So, here is our very first edition of the feature in all its glory!
Tournament Winners Update: January '14by iAmCaffeine
Aside from those exciting new features, our writers continue to deliver their news staples with mcshanester29's latest MTTW Interview with RKCVED and my selection of tournaments awaiting signups in Join This? Or Not!. DaveH has been on vacation lately, but he has still provided us with an update of TPA happenings in TPA Wrap, correct as of 16 January.
Welcome my fellow map enthusiasts to issue number eleventy-one! Speaking of J.R.R. Tolkien, does anyone know of a beta map that has one of his quotes on it? I'll give you a hint, when you find it you won't be getting hotter, you'll be getting colder.
In this issue we'll continue to highlight all those great maps in development, and I'll borrow Koontz1973's spotlight and shine it around to see what we can see.
