CAL Bye Week Posted By: 6 of 9
at: 11:23:54
CAL DC League is taking Feb 9th off. Next CAL DC League match will be on Feb 16th on Tobruk.

Forfeit Win Awarded Posted By: Wolven
at: 00:36:05
We were awarded a forfeit win from our CAL match last Monday. This is actually secondary to the waves we have caused in the DC community. Both the CAL and TWL forums erupted in debates about the use of exploits and whether or not certian things are legal in match play. It seems the end result is that more clans are now aware of exploits and they are aware that exploits should be submitted to admins for review. Hopefully this awareness will deter any teams that have thought about taking advantage of any exploits and that the Devs will take action to squash the bugs and remove the ability to exploit them.

That is how a match should be played Posted By: Wolven
at: 20:58:09
We played a hard match against uT, one of the top clans from our last seasons in BF42 and a top team in DC. We took them to overtime in our league match but we weren't able to clamp down and defeat them. It was a very close match though and given another shot at it, I think we could have pulled out another trick or two.

No time to dwell though, we have a CAL match tomorrow as well as our ladder match on Wednesday!

Flaming like its Tribes ONE! Posted By: Wolven
at: 11:46:15
This is page one of a now 3 page rant. The rant has been highjacked by E&S heroes Chappy and Buzzed. Feel free to take your shots in the first Rant thread embraced by the Kindread.

Happy New Years! Posted By: Wolven
at: 10:46:04
I would like to take this moment to kick the kid wearing the 2003 sash and wave buh-bye to him. Perhaps this kid was playing for the E&S clan, in which case Puck already kicked him for us. I gotta say, I totally missed that thread until Buzzed came into our rant thread for our upcoming match with EMF. I haven't laughed that hard since the last retarded E&S thread was locked on the TWL forums.

I think the most funny thing in there is that Chappy was really really reaching for something to hold onto as Puck continued to verbally bitch slap him. Unfortantely for Chappy, the best he could grab onto was the Screenshot rule.

All in all, I think this time in Desert Combat has been a great time for us, so much of it feels like our original T1 Shifter days. From the fast paced mod to the smacktalking n00bs who are trying to claim we cheat. I think 2004 and Desert Combat are going to make for a good combination.

Drink heavily but responsibly and don't drink and drive (unless it is in a video game).

In related news Posted By: Wolven
at: 23:35:57
It turns out E&S was actually disputing the match on the grounds that they figured we had to have been using the fog hack and some other crap to get the kills we did. I found this to be extremely disappointing since the obvious answer was not that we have been cheating (our winning record would be a lot better if we were) but that they played a terrible match.

I can't imagine what would have happened had we played Basrah's Edge, a map that has been good to us and that E&S has apparently never played in a match before. We probably would have beaten them so bad that they would have exploded in rage. As it is, E&S did end up losing rungs for wasting our time and the time of the admins with their false dispute and they threw their temper tantrum here.

Another drawn out victory Posted By: Wolven
at: 01:29:55
So we beat the pants off of E&S tonight, it was a fairly easy match aside from getting started. E&S has disputed the match for some reason which they will try to keep secret. I have since sent a large email to the admins with the hopes of getting this resolved quickly so we can challenge up the ladder instead of having to wait to be challenged.

Good work everyone on the asswhooping! Here are the scores:

Saddam's Capture, an end to DC? Posted By: M4ndr4k3
at: 09:46:45
So it appears that Saddam has been caught outside Tikrit in Iraq. Could this spell the end of the DC genre. People now will say, what's the point of playing DC if there is not the slight chance that I will get to catch Saddam?

Don't lie I know that is what you were all looking for in the mod, Saddam.

Well don't worry, there are still suicide bombers and not to mention that Osama Bin Ladin guy could be anywhere. There will still be plenty of houses to clear out and Iraqi opposition forces.

Ok, well I've had a pretty crazy weekend with my unfortunate trip to Seattle. Things were as good as can be expected after spending 26+ hours in a car within a 3 day period.

We should have a scrim tomorrow with FRAG depending on our turnout. Also, there is an update on the status of the Season 4 maplist, I honestly am still disappointed with it since it looks identical to the previous seasons. Savage and DC are looking better and better.

Next Tuesday will be the TWL allstar game. From my last tally the team is sending the following three guys, in order of who got the most votes: Lazerd, Jundicator and NecroChoad. Since I'm writing the news I'll give myself honourable mention as being 4th place. Thanks to everyone who voted.

CAL Season is over Posted By: Wolven
at: 23:02:57
It was a hard fought Sunday night for us and we took it right down to the wire but luck was not in our corner as we were knocked out of the playoffs. I would like to say that I am very proud of how well we have been doing in our Sunday matches considering we tend to have 2-4 less guys show up than we do on Thursdays.

We can now focus on our playoff run in the TWL. I haven't heard from the admins whether the first round will be this Thursday or next but either way we'll be prepared.

Also, FatBaby has requested that we start getting a team together for Savage and I agree. If you don't have it yet, feel free to ask the guys that do have it how it plays. As the BF1942 season winds down we will most likely join the Savage 10v10 ladder. More info will be in the forums.

TWL Playoffs Seeds. Posted By: Wolven
at: 12:02:49
A rather surprising turn of events has occured on the TWL standings. I was sure that we were going to be locked into 4th place in our conference but then it turns out that we have had more Rounds Won than AF and thus our tiebreaker pushed us up into 3rd. This means that instead of playing L|p in the first round we will be facing a hungry FRAG team. We've scrimmed FRAG a number of times to prepare for other matches and these guys are smart so we'll have to stay sharp if we plan to beat them.

Damn I like that map Posted By: Wolven
at: 00:03:53
Well, Iwo Jima week is over and we blew out both of the teams we played against. It was really too bad we did not get a chance to play better teams this week because I think it would have given us a chance to shine.

As it is we are locked into the playoffs for TWL and we still have a fighting chance in CAL. This next week will be make-it or break-it time for us as we are sitting in a tie for the bottom playoff spots. Even though it is not official this is the standings as I figured it out post week 7:

1) Warsaw - 14 (14/1)
2) Xtreme Syndicate - 12 (13/3)
3) Aggressive Faction - 10 (10/5)
3) Team Bawls - 10 (10/5)
3) 9th Ranger Platoon - 10 (9/6)
6) The Dissidents - 8 (10/7)
6) Kindread - 8 (8/7)
6) Clan Ubiquity - 8 (8/8)
6) SECON - 8 (8/8)
6) LETHAL - 8 (8/8)

11) SOW - 6 (8/8)
11) WDT - 6 (8/10)
11) FB - 6 (6/2)

GGs to SOW this season. I was really bummed to see they drew Warsaw this week, it totally knocked them out of the race.

Well, it was a good match for us tonight on TWL Thursday. We came out hard and earned our victory against 1Cav to keep us in second place in our division and 4th place in the conference. I'd like to thank all 16 of the guys that came out tonight. Our improved roster numbers has been a huge boost to me as team organiser and I'm sure it is helping some of our guys feel better about not being able to play with us (gl UltraPimp in getting your system fixed, we're missing you in the field).

Worst Event Ever, Lanageddon Posted By: Wolven
at: 16:10:22
As I said in my last news post, Lanageddon was on this weekend and they had advertised that they had a battlefield 1942 tournament with a confirmed $1500 in prizes. The tournament was suppose to start yesterday at 7pm. When the tournament finally did start at 2am I was beginning to get very angry. When our team was given a "bye" through both round 1 and round 2 to put us into the finals without playing the game I was extremely disappointed. It was not until I found out that the Lanageddon staff were not going to give us the $900 purse for first place but instead going to hand us a few shitty hats and shirts from intel that I became fucking pissed off.

This was a blatant robbery on their part. They took my money and exchange gave me shit. You'd think I would be more sympathetic because of the experience I have had organising BayLAN for the past 3 years but the truth is, I NEVER lied to the people who came to our LANs. I never promised prizes that were never there and when I said I would provide something, I did my best to make sure it was there.

We did not finish the tournament until 6am this morning and at that point I was in no mood to argue but now that I have had some sleep I think I am going to make sure the Lanageddon staff get an ear full about false advertisement.

It was a bummer Posted By: Wolven
at: 14:40:29
We lost our TWL match last night and I think it got a lot of us down because we knew that if we had practiced more, it would have been a lot closer or even a win for us.

With this in mind, hopefully we can step up to the plate for our Sunday game. I was also checking the TWL standings and we still have a playoff berth so next week will be the beginning of our playoffs. CAL is still a statistical chance, but a slim one at that.

Made it to the Movie Posted By: Wolven
at: 02:13:50
I want to give a HUGE shoutout to all the guys to played in tonight's match. It was a total test of faith on my part as I made a very poor gamble that our match would be finished well before the Matrix 2 started. As we were going into OT, Mandrake bailed because he had other people he was responsible for. I stayed (not for lack of trying to find a replacement) and I was fully prepared to miss the movie and then we greyed all flags in our first rush out of the north. We held the greys, killed all our opponents and I got to the theatre only a few minutes after Mandrake (because he had to pick up some people). Unfortunately, SolFire did not save me a seat so I had to sit by myself... but it was a hella good movie and I hardly noticed.

All in all, tonight was a success and I would like to thank my teammates for making it happen. You guys rock!

Tobruk Week ends Posted By: Wolven
at: 11:20:11
Wow is the term I would use when I think of our Tobruk matches on Thursday and Sunday. After our scrim on Tuesday with the Revival asshats (well, they only had two asshats that were talking smack after the scrim) we figure out what plans were not going to work and we didn't use them again. Thursday and Sunday were both against BTG, on Thursday we had a close match where Axis won every round. Sunday was the opposite in that Allies won every round and boy did that give us a heart attack after the first round. Fortunately, we got the win in both matches but they were very close wins.

Tobruk/BuckToof week has started out better than I had hoped. We won our TWL match and it sets us up for a good match on Sunday. BuckToof are a good crew and regardless of Sunday's outcome, I expect we will have another team to scrim with.

I found out that our opponents, NRG were not going to play against us tonight about 15 minutes before match time. So we earned our forfeit victory but we were left with nothing to do. Out of nowhere: WHAM! There is Polaris, ready and willing to get a scrim going. We even managed to put together 13 guys on each team instead of the normal 12.

It was hella fun, as usually when we play CkB. We'll have to play again.

All I can say about our match tonight was perfect. We came into this match as the super underdogs, playing against a previously undefeated team in our division, and we won a solid match. CAG came at us hard and consistently. They were constantly flanking us on Bocage, stealing our equipment and taking the flag that should always have been ours.

The reason we won regardless of that, is because we were playing a game with no mistakes. We flowed to counter their attacks and we were able to contain them. We had 12 guys who were ready to play tonight and on time. I hope this sets the road to us marching to the playoffs.

Just like I expected after our Ladder match against DLR last week, our League match against them was an even more intense, yet friendly, game. DLR came at us hard with everything they had in the first map and stomped all over us. In the second map, we managed a last minute killing spree to win by 1 ticket!!!! omg.

In the third map, UltraPimp showed up and after Mandrake gracefully sat out we proceeded to kick ass. DLR made a couple of mistakes that we capitalized on and we pulled through for the win. Amazing games and we will be scrimming against DLR in the future, I am sure.

Roster Updates Posted By: Wolven
at: 19:51:34
I've been making roster updates without announcing them in the news... *bad wolven*. Sanfu made full member after his last match and more recently, holyshiza from the old UFR has joined us, played solidly as a pilot in BF1942 and has been voted into full membership. Finally, Jundicator was discovered by FAH and after taking a look at his skills, he has been added as our newest recruit.

Congrats to all of you, good games and have fun!

Awake the Beast Posted By: Wolven
at: 21:28:09
We were lucky enough to snap NERV's winning streak in BF1942. The only reason we even got a chance was because they were kind enough to wait while we sorted out connection problems. Once we had all our guys in we saw the air dominated by XeRo, CW and LiB and the ground saw serious ownage by Smoke, Pimp and the big Choad himself.

It was BF1942 the way it was meant to be played. GGs.

BF1942 mess Posted By: Wolven

Well, our Ladder match seems to be a complete mess. Hopefully it will go down tonight, otherwise we will have to get an admin to step in and clean house.

Our BF1942 ladder opponents cannot play our Ladder match on Tuesday. I have offered them Wednesday but I need to know if we can get 12 guys together for that date. If we can't play Wednesday and they can't play Tuesday I have asked to have the match cancelled.

I will try to get a scrim with [AK] for Tuesday since I know many of you have booked that time off already.

Also, we have our Classic match tonight, our roster is looking a bit slim. Hopefully a couple guys not sign up will show so we can get the full 14. After this we will most likely drop the 14 man classic ladder and discuss whether we want to pick up the 7 man classic for the few guys that prefer classic over V2. (but really, we should all just get into BF1942!)

Finally, our first 13 man V2 match has been moved from Thursday to Sunday Nov. 10th. The lineup is up and ready for you all to Sign up.

BF1942 match vs TeK Posted By: Wolven
at: 14:42:33
Well, we had an intense first isntallment to our match with TeK. The first map came down to a 2 ticket lead by TeK and they ended up winning the map. Looking back, there was a few things I could have done to earn those two bloody tickets, like not TK Abbell with a grenade, doh! The second map was a huge turnaround for us, we wanted the win and we earned it with a resounding 182-0 combined ticket total after map 2. Unfortunately, map 3 has yet to be played, it was getting late and we had to reschedule the last map.

I think we will try for either Wednesday or Thursday next week. I need you guys to go to the BF1942 forum and let me know which will be better. I'll also create lineups.

That's right, we have a BF1942 match coming up this Wednesday night. We are starting at 9:15pm ET and since we are attacking, we have to go to their server so everyone has to be ready ahead of time! Also, there is a T2 Classic match coming up on Sunday, Nov. 3. We are going to play this match since it came up before the V2 ladder openned and then we may drop from the ladder. V2 just seems to be more fun for more of the guys and that is what it is all about, right?

So everyone needs to log in and help get organised, we have chats going on in the forums and lineups are up for matches and goofing off!

Also, in case you guys haven't been reading your emails we have some congrats to go out. Ferret and Doc will both be Fathers very soon. Ferret is having his second so I doubt this will change much for him.

We had our last Base++ match with KY and I must admit that I was happy as hell with our performance. We took the lead fast and showed that we should have won that match. We just couldn't bring ourselves to turtle as hard as we should have.

Our plans now are to test out both Classic and Version 2. The growing interest in Version 2 seems to be winning out on the fun factor and I think that will become our new mod. Since there isn't a ladder for it yet, we will have to contend ourselves with a couple Classic matches.

We have had some ups and downs this week on the roster. I am very sad to say that we have lost a very important member, ZaarKahn. Due to RL issues that are conflicting with his ability to be in the Kindread we are going to have to say farewell for now. I know this comes as a shock to most of you, I am personally very sad about it, especially since I was just staying at ZaarKahn's place when Mandrake and I flew down to SJ for the LAN. I eagerly await the day when ZaarKahn will be free to rejoin us and get back to the pure enjoyment of gaming with fellow adults. You will be very missed ZK.

On a lighter note, we have some new recruits to welcome. KegMan is coming in as a new capper. Quikfix is coming in at long last (it only took you 3 years buddy). Cerberu$ (PsycoBobo) is joining us as a Heavy D. And last but not least PsycoFodder will be looking to fill a hole on the O side.

This will mean less matches, but I will make sure we have enough scrims to stay busy. Also, we will need to recruit a player or two for our HO or capper squads. Maybe another LD. We'll see how thing pan out with our scrims. ~Wolven

Another great match tonight! We played a hard game against [TNP], they got the jump on us in the first 10 minutes of No Shelter and that gave them enough to take the map in overtime. Then in Firestorm and Harvester, it was all Kindread. We fought hard to take home the win. [TNP] were great sports, we both had a lot of trouble with players staying connected and they didn't seem to get ruffled by the delays. GGs everyone!! ~Wolven

We had a HUGE day yesterday! It started out with me crashing the game servers. That's right, I forgot who owned the files. After getting support from include for a few hours, we decided to just give him access to the server. Now *drum roll* not only is KroNos up and running, but so is the long lost KaOTiKa!!! So, keep your eyes open for both HomeLAN KaOTiKa[Kin]++ 613 and HomeLAN KroNos[Kin] 614.

The second big news is our newest recruit, Froghammer! I am really pleased to welcome him to Kindread and I am sure he will fit right in with our other heavy hoes. ~Wolven

We have had some killer scrims this week. DxM were great sports on Tuesday and even though we were short for 12, they had extras and we played some good games. Today, we had a solid time with FS. I think that this has been more productive than our usual practices and we should be planning a lot more scrims to replace our future practices.

GGs everyone. Next up, Matches on Sunday (12 man), Tuesday (7 b++) and a scrim on Thursday with |FS| again. I'll be talking to DxM for another scrim in the near future. ~Wolven

We fought a good match against DxM tonight. They proved to be the more organised team, leaving us alone for 5 minutes while they got a play together and then hammered us with it. We fought well in the second map. They took the lead in DBF but we came back hard when they thought they had won it and tied it up. Unfortunately, they sneeked the win in OT.

I will be trying to get a scrim set up for Sunday, keep your eyes open for it! ~Wolven

Our match last night against |tko| was hard fought. We knew that we were challenging a tough team and they showed us where our faults were. It was a good match though, we played hard and we tried some new things. It was a good step for us to take. Now we will wait to see who challenges us and punish them for doing so ;)

After the match, |tko| invited us to scrim with them. I think that says a lot about our game and I will definately be taking them up on that offer. ~Wolven

We had an intense match last night against DOM. We had been practicing hard all week and everything was working for voice comms. Both of the maps were new match maps for us, Deadly Birds Song and No Shelter. On both maps, DOM came out strong but quickly our practice started to pay off as we shut down their O and put the pressure on their D.

We are going to try to take our momentum and challenge |tko| for rung 15. Keep your heads up for practice and match details! ~Wolven

We played our third and final match in the Pnet tournament. Considering the subtle differences between base and base++, as well as the fact that Saturday afternoon is not a good time for us to get players. I think we had a good time in the tournament. We were short again vs CDNA and we held our own for the most part but eventually they took the lead and kept it.

All in all, I was pleased with base++. I think that with some practice we could have won a number of those maps. GGs guys.

We will have Practice on Sunday and Tuesday for our Thursday Match vs ^DOM^. I know we usually go on Mondays but I think we might do better on Tuesdays. Check the member's area for more info.

Tournament News: Well, the Pnet tournament started at 2pm instead of 3pm. This didn't seem to work for us since we only had 3 guys show to take on the #1 team on the 12 man ladder, {ns}. Now worries? They capped out pretty fast.

Our second rounder was on even terms but [KGB] proved to have the edge on the first round map and we tied on the second two. Tournament rules, they win. We have a bye in the 3rd round and 4th round is at 8pm ET.

Yesterday's Tryout was a huge success. We had KroNos jumping most of the evening aside from one map change to a client side that dropped everyone. We got to see some new talent and have the shock of some old botches re-appearing out of nowhere.

Good times to be sure, I think we'll have to try again next week!

Another match has come and gone. It was a really close one and it came down to a lucky bounce for the other guys. We had a good turnout considering the monday worktime blues kept a number of our players out of the match. On the plus side the other team was so impressed with our sportsmanship that they asked if we could scrim. Another nice change from the old days. :)

Match: A big WooHoo! for the team. We had an amazing come from behind victory on the TWL last night. We were ahead 2-0 in the first map, then slipped and lost it. We then pulled together and pulled off a clean victory on the last two maps. All 7 guys did a great job: Abbell, Melody, Puck, WingZ, Slain, FAH-Q_2 and Czar!!

Roster: In light of the events over the past few months, it has come to our attention that some players were in serious need of a promotion. FAH-Q_2 has been with us for a long time and over the past half year he has been doing some great recruiting for us. Also, WingZ has shown his dedication through tough times and has helped out with organising matches. Both of these guys deserve their promotions to Chosen.

Match: Our match against FS was a close one. We traded the first two maps and then lost in the overtime map. It was very close but the servers made the difference as we lost players who couldn't keep a good connection to the East coast server. This was all the edge that FS needed to take the win! Great Games guys!

Roster: After the match, Billatron decided he was done with the clan and is off to find a more winning team. When it rains it pours we also lost some great guys in DooDoo and SquirrelOfDeath who have decided they need to take a step back from competitive play to figure things out. Jog has also left in look for a more competitive team as our clan has left the 16 man ladder to play in the 12 man ladder. Also to note, 9er decided he wasn't really Kindread material and dropped from his sponsorship.

These have all been blows to the clan but the core of the Kindread is still going strong. We will take it easy and await the return of Wolven from Australia in the start of January.
