Hello all and welcome to the ninth issue of the Conquer Club Newsletter!

Apologies for the late issue this week while i was on holidays, now that i have returned lets get down to the newsletter shall we? It has been relatively quiet in CC over the past few weeks following the staff shuffle. But the dust seems to have settled and everyone is getting back to enjoying the game, which is good to see.

With Summer just around the corner, the CC News Team has launched a Summer Graphics Competition that is open to all of the CC Community. For full details on the competition visit this thread.

According to Optimus Prime the site's Operations Manager, TeamCC Nominations came in thick and fast from the community at large. A pile that he now must sift through and pick out the cream of the crop, here is what he had to say...
Optimus Prime wrote:Alright folks, I've got a massive pile of names to sift through, so the time has come to close the nominations period. Looks like there are some really promising folks in my pile, so keep your eyes peeled. Sometime in the not too terribly distant future we are likely to start seeing some new faces with colored names.

Thanks for the help!

Regards, OP

So stay tuned i guess...

We will soon see a new Brazil map to replace the current, see Foundry News for more info.

We hope you enjoy this issue :)

    - Results: Here are listed all finished games, map name and who won and who lost the games.
You can find this useful tool and more informations about it here.

Recently Quenched & Beta Maps

Brazil REVAMPMaker: RjBeals XML: Optimus Prime
    After winning the much-advertised and highly known revamp, RjBeals teamed up with XML'er (and admin!) Optimus Prime to finish of this beauty that will replace the current, uh, not-so-great looking Brazil map by Marvaddin in 2006. After winning the competition, RJ went through some trouble as Marv used his "super-veto" powers to get rid of some tilt that RJ had put on his winning entry, sending a wave of anti-mapping sentiments through him. But after a long haul, the map was completed to the enjoyment of all, and we hope to see this live soon!

Foundry News & Announcements
Foundry Newsletter: Issue #20
Greetings,

Another issue is upon us. We've got a full issue here, with three maps arising from the recycling bin after long vacations. In addition we've got your favorite column with WCA's latest challenge, and we all think you'll get a kick out of it. Sadly no Editorial this issue, school got in the way of our intended writer, so look for it next issue. Of course we've got A Look Back and Spotlight, covering Tisha's Puget Sound and Sully's up-and-coming World Cities. And finally our Community Perspective, with the proof that nobody likes reading what I'm typing right now. Just let me know if I should just cut this portion out already. :P

Hope you enjoy the issue,
TaCktiX
Senior Editor

That's right, another issue of the newsletter where you can see what's up with all things mapping, read interviews and compete in other graphic competitions is up! We hope you enjoy it :)

A big rivalry is starting to form between The Horseman of the Apocalypse (THOTA) and Legends of War(LOW). THOTA now leads the Clan League, while LOW maintains the top spot on the Clan Ladder. To add to that mix, they are also facing off in a clan war as well in a very close battle, and also head to head in the league this week! Some great sportsmanship here.

In other news, a new clan ladder draft is circulating for comments and review, and is based more closely to College Sports RPI. Some good reviews so far and several players are reviewing calculations. There was concerns with the original (and still current) ladder that many newer clans were being placed on the ladder higher than they should, and that it was possible to get to number 1 without facing a top 10 clan. The draft version minimizes that ability as you will have to face stronger opponents in order to be ranked higher. Work should continue on the new ladder for a few more weeks before it is taken to the CLA for a vote.

In my Clan Director duties, I was approached this week by someone from the technical team and I am exploring some reporting functionality and other possibilities as well. Hopefully I will be able to report some results soon.

As always, you can find Clans who are recruiting here and you can see a list of all the clans and usergroups here.
