ZalCon2 Turn 18 Standings

Okay, I will start out by saying the Team MVP contest is pretty much over.  OrcCon 
Thugs have a commanding 12 point lead with only 2 turns to go.  I will post standings 
for this category next turn as well as double checking all points for all warriors to 
make sure everything is computed correctly for the Top 11 Warrior MVP list.

The Warrior MVP contest is now down to Stigma and Justgiveitup.  I am sure I will not 
be giving anything away by saying that if Justgiveitup does not take the throne this 
turn and keep it, this contest is over as well.

Here is the Top 20 of the MVP Warrior list, remember the Top 11 get a +1 to bonus 
potion.
Stigma - 49, Justgiveitup - 41, Vanguard - 41, Grotesque - 39, Happy Cat - 39, Kurt 
Rambis - 39, Bagman - 38, Andromeda - 38, Spider Claws - 37, Syndicate - 37, Bram De 
Waard - 36, Magic Johnson - 35, Ma Rainey - 34, Putressence - 34, Crazy Ivan - 33, 
White Wind - 33, Abhorrence - 33, George Mikan - 33, Shaq Daddy - 33, Michael Cooper 
- 33.

The Stylemaster competitions that are over unless Death or Inactivity claims the 
leaders are:
Aimed Blow - Magic Johnson, Purple and Gold
Lunger - Abhorrence, Dark Toads
Parry Lunge - Michael Cooper, Purple and Gold
Striker - Bram De Waard, Ronde Van Noord-Hol.

The remaining 6 styles are still in doubt... here is the breakdown:
Basher: Syndicate and Grotesque are tied for the top spot with 2 turns to go.  
Grotesque will have to be in a position to beat Syndicate on the last turn of the 
contest or end up ahead in recognition points this turn to win the competition as 
Syndicate has held the Top in Style for 3 turns and will receive 3 points on Turn 19.

Parry Riposte: Pussy-Footed only has to hope ICBTRISA stays out of the Adepts this 
turn and/or does not beat another Parry Riposte to claim the title.  If either of 
those happen it will be down to the last turn for this less than stellar group.

Parry Strike: Putressence still has the lead in this competition but Dreamer can 
still take the title by remaining Top in Style the last 2 turns.  This would cause a 
tie at contest end with Dreamer getting an additional point for being the Top in 
Style on the final turn to win.

Slasher: Shaq Daddy is the leader here with 13 points but he is far from the 
favorite.  Bagman has the Top in Style and has 10 points while Charley Patton is 2nd 
in recognition for Slashers and has 12 points.  This one will come down to the final 
turn.

Total Parry: Dwayne is on the verge of losing his first ever Total Parry contest.  
Vanguard is just 2 points behind with 2 turns to go with the advantage of being 
current Top in Style.  If Vanguard should tie Justgiveitup next turn, would the 
alliancemates agree to a winner takes all duel on the contest's final turn?  Only 
time will tell.

Wall of Steel: Ma Rainey has all but wrapped up this race.  Only by beating Ma Rainey 
this turn and holding the Top in Style at the end of the contest would White 
Worldbenger be able to overtake Ma Rainey and win the competition.

The Iron Manager Awards will likely go to the following 14 teams with just 10 fights 
remaining in the contest: Force of Five, Different Hats, The Force II, Black + Blue, 
Superior Forces ZC2, Arena Felines, OrcCon Thugs, Purple and Gold, Dark Toads, 
Dreamers, Classic Blues, Millenium Metal, Hitmen for Hire and Mayan White.

Only 2 more reminders to go and here is the 1st of them... Your team and/or warrior 
MUST be active on the final turn of the contest to be eligible for ANY prizes.  Put 
your team on maintenance if you have to but make sure you are around for the end of 
this thing.

Finally, I have the format for my next contest... I just need an arena and to iron 
out the prizes for each category.  Any suggestions for nicknames is also welcomed... 
ZalCon3 should be coming to a currently closed arena near your in March 2005.  The 
sneak peak shows teams will need to Dark Arena all warriors on Turn 1 and all 
warriors will have their style abbreviation in their name.

Until next time, your humble servant,

Zalgor Prigg

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JHELUM since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
HITMEN FOR HIRE was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 1-4-0!  Up 'n down.  
Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, 
MAYAN WHITE's 7th moved them up to 3-1-0 place.  It seems so recently people were 
saying DARK TOADS was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 1.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  What's with CHARLEY PATTON?  He actually beat PURPLE AND 
GOLD's MICHAEL COOPER, and walked away with 34 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at CLASSIC BLUES while they watched CHARLEY PATTON clobber MICHAEL COOPER.  
He lost 28 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged BLADES OF MIST's EXCURSION?  That sort of initiative is how he 
got where he is now.  Try as he might, EXCURSION wasn't good enough at persuading 
SYNDICATE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, PURPLE AND 
GOLD!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at DIFFERENT HATS ain't reelin'!  
PURPLE AND GOLD's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, BAGMAN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Taunt 
your opponent PUTRESSENCE!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  
(and by 32 points!)  DREAMER should have an easy win.  Just who can DREAMER beat?  I 
mean, the last matchup with lesser-ranked PUTRESSENCE shoulda been a piece of cake!  
Keep challenging up 26 points, GEORGE MIKAN, and I won't have to write about you much 
longer.  SIREN WOLFE always accepts those kind of challenges...  As I expected, SIREN 
WOLFE won GEORGE MIKAN.  Not to start anything, but, GEORGE MIKAN, now that you've 
faced her and seen his style, you might try it again!  Maybe BLACK & BLUE's DIPLOMA 
is one of those beasts who likes pain, or something.  That's what it'll get next 
week, after challenging up 32 to THIJS ZONNEVELD.  I don't get it.  DIPLOMA goes and 
challenges THIJS ZONNEVELD, way above it, but gets 3 points after it loses!  Is this 
a new strategy?  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that 
NICKLEBACK gets in.  It fights people like PUSSY-FOOTED, 9 points below.  I thought 
NICKLEBACK showed great skill and promise when it was overcame by PUSSY-FOOTED.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, 
if MUDVAYNE can return from the Dark Arena.  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena 
reminds the others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, BOB'S FRIEND BOB.  That's 
what a 4-7-0 gets you.  CUBS FAN of DIFFERENT HATS didn't know when to quit.  When 
you've got a 10-9-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  Methinks MEMPHIS MAFIA's 
desire for revenge against PURPLE AND GOLD passes with each passing moment...  One 
week left guys!  Let's get on with the show!  Many a warrior has met his fate in a 
hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Traumer -- Nice job altering your strategy.  Not exactly what I would have done, but 
it worked. -- Assur

Zalgor -- Thanks for hosting this little party.  You've done a good job with the 
reporting!  Just 1 one more turn and you get a break! -- Assur

Clyde -- Uh... that would be superior to what force? -- Pericles

Drommare -- Cheese, maybe I should try for the Unbroken Losing Streak record? -- 
Dogface
P.S.  It isn't like I'd refuse a win if it came my way, but... cheese, you guys are 
all so intense!

Kerry -- While an official revenge is ruled out by the Commission, an UNOFFICIAL 
retribution is possible and shall occur. -- Nestor Khan, Dark Champion

                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.

                                    <<<PRIZES>>>

     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS
DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY
DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!!  ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE
CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST.
