Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends!
We have come at last to the 116th running of the CC Dispatch!
In this issue, I welcome you to the long-awaited Jig's Fantasy Draft Event. The complete description of this event is reproduced below in our Platoon Report. I hope you are excited about participating in this ground-breaking event. Former Platoon Report editor, and current Lord of the Clans Leehar has returned for a special guest appearance in this issue.
We also have our regular War Games feature section. Special thanks to DaveH and his tournament team for their reliable and prompt reportage!!! And congrats to the TDs on the launch of the TPA4 scoreboard!
Last but oh-so-far-from-least, we have our Interrogation of Benga, the clan mastermind who has made the whole CC world tremble at the mention of Croatia! In our next issue, we will be interrogating hayesez, one of the quiet ones that you have to watch, someone who has made it up the scoreboard to the Number 2 position without any big public hullabaloo.
To those of us who love the forums, the most important regular rite of Conquer Club is the periodic re-naming of the Off-Topics Forum. The longest-running name of all ("Whose Forum Is It, Anyway?") ended its unprecedented 11-month run and was finally replaced with "Babble-On Five" on April 28th.
There are a lot of behind-the-scenes improvements to Conquer Club that don't lend themselves to big splashy announcements like we were blessed with in January and February. The emphasis in the last month has been on technical improvements to the game engine and the forum, resolving the long-standing lag problems, hunting down some nasty bugs, and minor tweaks of existing features. Most people have been finding the lag problems much reduced in the last couple of weeks, and some bugs have been hunted down and killed. None of this is particularly exciting to write about, but it is important.
The leading event right now is the May Challenge. This challenge focuses on the 13 Colonies map.
DoomYoshi wrote:The Quebec Act of May 20, 1774 was an attempt by England to halt the expansion of the 13 colonies westward by awarding those territories to Quebec. You will need strategy and diplomacy to get through the main repercussions of this Act - the American Revolutionary War.
Welcome to another edition of the Platoon Report, where we seek to bring you the latest happenings in the clan world here on Conquer Club!
Swifte is busy celebrating an increase in the size of his R/L clan, so Leehar is here to bring you the online Clan news.
Clan League 6 is now underway, with week 1 of the Qualifying Round already commencing as we go to print. As always with any competition, we have the requisite group of death, with Group 2 taking the honours in this years event. Premier League Champions Kort entertain Second League Runners-up OSA & Third League Runners-up HH (coincidentally these clans competed together in CL5 QG6 as well) We also have Legion (ranked 8th in the last year on the F400), Pheonix (merger of Dynasty & TFFS) as well as much-vaunted FISO rounding off the line-up. You can catch all the latest from CL6 here
Sign-ups have also closed for the latest Conquerors Cup. Drawings are currently under-way for CC5, and you can catch the latest bracket as it is updated here
Simultaneously, CC4 semi-finals are still underway with the top 2 clans on CC at the moment duking it out for the win, as well as top spot on the F400 Ranking. Clan heavy-weight KORT are already awaiting the victor in the Cup Final!
