                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JHANS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at IRON TIGERS 
left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by BABES.  Good show! 
Those betting on WAY OF THE SWORD C4 lost their shirt, as WAY OF THE SWORD C4 lost 
their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  What's a move up by 8 you ask?  (alright, maybe 
you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to BLITZKRIEG.  I doubt many are 
quaking in their boots, but SUICIDAL DREAMS comes out of nowhere to get 4-1-1.  What 
does the future hold?  Watch this space...  Well, THE FALLEN, you can show this to 
your parents.  But you'll have to do better than 2-3-0 if you want your names in this 
space again...  Practice pays for BADDA BOOM, who pummelled REBA, to pocket 22 
points.  MAC certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to DONNA 
and losing 2 points in the process!  ZANTARA successfully staved off a grab for the 
roses by ENEMY SABOTEUR of JHANS.  Does JHANS have no one talented enough to dethrone 
her?  Word has it one team in JHANS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their 
opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
BABES are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The warriors 
of BABES found their efforts at combat frustrated as BLITZKRIEG apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Citizens of JHANS, be 
sure to settle your debts with BLANKEE of LITTLE GIRLS LIKE....  He's relocating to 
the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, 
the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHANS is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  JHANS, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Lucas Lounge.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

SOL -- Thanks for the warm welcome.  Maybe next time you could just buy me a drink at
the Lucas Lounge. -- Polarius

Cosmo -- Nice to be back.  After 2 turns, and only 2 wins, I find that the
competition is just as fierce as it was when I left.  And with the crappy replacement
roll-ups the Dark Arena is becoming my best friend. -- Polarius

Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex

                       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.
