We will be having a match against SOW tommorow. Please check the calendar for specifics. The roster is full but we need a couple backups just in case.

Thanks,

I know this is a little belated but I wanted to say to everyone that showed up for the TCO match, "Good Work!" I know that the server lagged harsh and that we felt kinda cheated but I really liked the communication that was going on and I would like to see more of that. 2ndHndSmoke is lining up some matches as you most likely know, so you should make sure you check back to see when the matches are. - Mandrake

For the administrators out there, I have written a little script that will allow us to enter in the result of our matches and have them displayed in a match history screen. Everyone can view it here. I will put a link on the navigation menu on the right when I get a second. I can't remember all the matches we had so if you guys would start making a list of all the approximate dates and who they were against as well as the outcome then I will put them up on the tournement history. Thanks everyone and I hope you like the page. - Mandrake

New feature added for the Calendar! Administrative users can now schedule a match and prepare a match roster from the admin functions. Users are able to view the roster via the calendar function. Simply click on the day that a match is scheduled for and, if it was scheduled correctly, it will come up with the match roster. There is a test one for your perusal on the 30th of May date in the calendar. - Mandrake

I added a cool new feature to the background, Our name. Thought it looked kinda neat but maybe need to play with the colours a bit. Also we were victorious in our match against the Anti-Clan.

Well I have been fiddling around a little more and have managed to get all the shifter servers that are registered on the tribes master and check them with the KRS. I have been having some problems but I think/hope it is working on scanning them all. I read the suggestions in the public message board and I included a paramater where you get a bonus if your score is more than 50% of your teams score. This is not as large as winning a map but this rewards players that do a lot for their team (or at least so we hope. The switching teams to the losing side thing is being looked at and considered. The server list that the scanning program runs on updates once a day so only servers that are consistently up and have the same ip address will be scanned. There is the possibility that I could make it go more often but it really depends. - Mandrake

Their is a match tommorrow against SeeD on a yet to be determined server. The back-up server will be Fight Club but we are trying to secure a more neutral server. Mandrake and Hashisheen will not be at the practise tonight as they are covering the Mix-Master Mike Concert for NUTV. For this practise Smoke will be in charge. The maps you will need to practise are first broadside and second raindance. - Mandrake

The Kindread Ranking System is up and running. It has just started so it will not have accurate information on anyone for at least a week but once a couple weeks go by then there will be more features. I think it is an improvement over the CLQ, which as doodoo points out, was never made for tribes. Try your hand at it. Tell me what you think. - Mandrake

I must say that one of the coolest ideas I have ever concieved within the vastness of my skull is coming to fruition. Thats right, the Kindread Blood Bank ranking system will soon be available for viewing. It is already collecting stats on people. I hope that this system will be more accurate than the system on the CLQ. It is based on team points and how well they function together rather than individual peak performance. It works more as an average points system as well. My suggestions are that if you want higher ranking you need to maintain a high level of play with consistently high points per game. You are awarded points for your team being and staying in the lead and also for winning a map. Anyway, I still need to build the front end for it but I must say that I am very excited and they should be done soon. - Mandrake

I am very proud to be Canadian and this commercial really just says it all for me. The Rant

I understand that certian individuals are getting all "offended" by it but to that I say BAH, they didn't seem to mind when a certain song, "Blame Canada" was nominated for awards. Also we were good enough to take it in stride and laugh at it. So enjoy if you wish.

Mush pointed this out to me and I kinda like this quote so I put it here in the news. For the whole article go here

    The original Tribes had many things going for
    it. It was, however, geared toward the
    "hardcore" gamer -- if you didn't have a basic
    understanding of player roles, in-game
    commands, and multiplayer FPS games in
    general, you were going to get killed. A lot.
    Over and over. It was a steep learning curve,
    to say the least. Tribes 2 has alleviated this
    by including the almost mandatory bots, along
    with 10 training missions and two
    single-player minicampaigns. These
    additions should help new players hone their
    skills, and it will give veteran players both a
    refresher course and an introduction to the
    many new facets of this game.

So there you have it. I just like the fact that tribes its for Hardcore gamers and that if your not your gonna get killed over and over and over. - Mandrake

All auto-taunts will be removed or edited to be less offensive. I have no problem with swearing, but trash talk will stop.

You have a problem with a certain player, don't trash talk, just show him/her how better you are.

Well I got bored last night and happened to have an extra computer that was running Win NT Server, our Roger Wilco Server and nothing else. So I set up a tribes base server on it with a max of 4 players (it is only a P-133) and called it the Kindread Clan Conflict Resolution Server. This is where you guys can go and battle it out base style when you are having some difficulty and can't seem to see each others point of view. Trial by combat. God would not let an evil man win so the strongest are the rightest!(gr? huge error) - LOL - Mandrake

Okay there are some problems with the members area but I do not know how to fix them. I noticed that when I log in I go to a screen that displays all of the formatting code for the page that is supposed to be next. The code appears to be correct and I am not sure why it is doing this. If this happens to you then after you have entered your password and username and get all that code on your screen just click on members area again and since the cookie is set it should jump you right to the propper screen and it is read correctly. Same thing with administration for those of you to which that applies. If you can think of a solution send me a message and I will try it out.

Also I have updated the members forum but in the process I accidentally deleted all of the messages that were up there. If you posted anything important please re-post it as the forum is working again. Also I updated it and the updated info is in the topic on that message board. - Mandrake

Alright fellas, Smoke sent me a link to a page where they may actually be offerring cash prizes for a shifter tournement. If they can pull this off then I definitely think we should get on board. Only problem is that it is for a team of 15 players and teh cash prize would be a max of $400.00 for the entire tribe. I would have to say we take it and put it all into kindread Paraphenalia, i.e. t-shirts, hoodies and stickers! Well anyway, I suppose we have to win first. We need to decide though if we want to do this and if we do win do you guys just want to split the money equally? Anyway here is the link to the site So check it out and tell us what you think! - Mandrake
