IRON HANDS LEE challenged NEON DISCODANCER in our title match.  It was over quickly,
but that isn't unexpected when a Basher is fighting.  IRON HANDS emerged victorious
and is the warrior to beat in the arena.  While he doesn't qualify for one of the
hottest warriors here, he hasn't been defeated in the last ten turns.

Hottest Warriors on the sands:
    HE HATE ME (8-2) - Win against MARDUK
    SCOURGE (7-3) - Win against PAUL
    ACK VERT (7-3) - Win against WONDER BRA
    P'TIT GARS (7-3) - Win against CHASEK
    HANNAH (7-3) - Loss against MORROCCO MOLE
    MUSCLE BUM (7-3) - Loss against PICKLE JUICE
    MIDNIGHT ANGEL (7-3) - Loss against HIS PROCTOLOGIST

The best team performances were by PENTARCHIE-18 and THE GUARDIANS II at 4-1.

Up challengers:   6-2   Warriors increasing recognition class: 24
Down challengers: 7-4   Warriors decreasing recognition class: 9

Most Challenged Warrior:    RAGEN of OF WOLF AND MAN 9
     CINDERELLA slimly won victory over RAGEN in a 13 minute TV challenge

Most Avoided Team:          WASTELAND by SHEPHERDS

There were 3 deaths on the sands.  FREAK avenged the death of UNBREAKABLE 2.0 by
killing LOATHE!  Well done, FREAK.  SHAVED TOO CLOSE got shaved on his challenge to
SWEATCAKE.  Finally, MAYOR MCCHEESE was killed in a matchup with HO HUM HO.  CENTER
FOR OLDS gets 2 kills in as many wins this turn....

The tourney went well for Talcama.  8 awards in 93 warriors sent from the arena
proper.  My picks went 35-25, with numerous no shows.  Only 1 death in DARSEE, while
warriors from Talcama killed 2 each in Champions, Adepts, and Novices.  Talcama gave
the Novices tournament an appropriate going away tourney and clever eyes will notice
that WIGGLER of THUNDR + LITENING launched a TV challenge this turn.  Congratulations
to WIGGLER and to all the other award winners! -- Sherik

Elbow -- Yipe...yipe...yipe...yipe!  (Roughly translated:  Ouch!  Missed the easiest
change for you to make in my planning.  Rubber match will have to wait until next
turn.  Sorry.) -- Scooter

Alfredo -- Not sure what exactly you wanted from the alphabetical list.  Any team not
listed in the previous newsletter won't be included, which is what I assume you meant
by 'active'. -- Assur

Battle Royal Update:
    Turn 469 Fight: Wonderland of Run and Hyde beats Alton of Burn N' Pillage

Battle Royal Notes:
    People's Elbow avoided Sretsamleud.
    Son of Cain avoided The Guardians II.
       These avoids make Untouchables ineligible for the prize.
    Kutu avoided Dark Forest Inn
    Manager and Jolly were the only managers to change their scores by more than a
        single point.
    Another reminder to be careful if you're going to avoid.  Avoids are being
        checked!

Goat -- You have now made illegal avoids in two turns.  Another avoid and you will be
disqualified from the Battle Royal! -- Assur

Dallas -- So the sandbagger arrives to the BR!  Thanks for the skills and reminder
about something I already knew. -- Assur

Jandolin -- I really hate you.  I can only hope my warriors won't fight you for your
last two turns here in Talcama! -- Assur

Iron Hands Lee -- If you're gonna challenge, you should challenge my warriors IN the
BR contest, not out of it.  Not that I'm gonna complain! -- Assur

Jelly Roll -- An unfortunate match up for you! -- Bart

Alfredo -- I'll see if I can do something with the alphabetical listing.... -- Assur

                       TOURNEY FREEZE CHANGE -- ADVANCE NOTICE

     Beginning at the Winter Face-to-Face in Tempe (January 2004), we will implement 
several changes affecting tournaments.  The tournament announcement for the upcoming 
FTF and future tourneys will reflect these changes.
     First, we will eliminate the tourney freeze for all regular DM warrior classes.  
Regular DM warriors will not be classed ahead of the tournament, but instead will 
fight according to their FE on the date of the tourney.  There will still be a freeze 
for the ADM classes, occurring on the same timeline as before, approximately 6 weeks 
before the tournament.
     In addition to the above change, the warrior classes will be slightly altered.  
The new tourney classes will be as follows:

                DM Tourney Classes                 ADM Tourney Classes
              ======================              ======================
                  0 FE:  Rookies                        Freshmen
                1-4 FE:  Apprentices                    ADM
               5-10 FE:  Initiates                      Eligibles
              11-20 FE:  Adepts                      ---induction---
              21-30 FE:  Champions                      Contenders
                31+ FE:  Challengers                    Primus

     All regular DM tourney classes will remain solely FE based.  All ADM classes will 
now be based on warrior characteristics (i.e., the ADM split algorithm), including the 
Freshmen class.
     The Gateway and Primus arenas will be merging before the FTF to form one top 
arena.  These warriors will be split into two tournament classes, the Contenders and 
the Primus classes, again based upon their characteristics.  More information on this 
will be published in the newsletters for those arenas.
     If you have any questions about the above changes, please contact Customer 
Service.  Good luck in your games.
