    I give up

    I think the war on CCC is far more bothersome than the war on NPO. The war on NPO is strategically a good move if 'they can get away with it', but the CCC war is a cheap, poorly researched joke that's potentially gotten them into a lot of trouble with their allies. That's the kind of terrible strategic precedent it would be better to avoid.
  4. I'm sorry Stormsend, your opinions are too strong for an opinion based talk show.
  5. My family has two iPads with a few specialist apps to help my autistic brothers with communication. From my own use of them, I don't think they're worth buying unless you can think of a specific reason for using it that can't be filled by something better. The main reason that springs to mind is travelling a lot and not wanting to bring along laptops. It's very personalised though, I don't think you can use blanket advice from other people on whether to buy it or not.
  6. Thanks for the (soccer/football to you..)league commentary, good job.

WC2010 is a simulated soccer (hereafter known as 'football') tournament which uses CN alliances as its teams, much like its real life FIFA namesake. Each team consists of a 16 player squad along with a manager who is able to change lineups and tactics between games. What makes this different from the plethora of other CN-ran tournaments is that you, the viewer, actually get to watch the action. All matches are recorded and uploaded in their entirety for your viewing pleasure, complete with quality commentary from the best and/or worst wordsmiths to ever grace CN. I will be using Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 to simulate the matches. Both teams in the game will be controlled by the Top Player AI and at no point will I, or anyone else, have any direct influence on the game itself. Indeed, if you've followed my past tournaments then you're still watching a computerised soccer match, with no human input, being shouted at by an uneducated British guy with a funny accent. Use the [i]amazing[/i] navigation bar above to be taken straight to your area of interest. [size="6"][b]Schedule[/b][/size] 30th October - 30th November: Applications 1st - 14th December: Preparation 15th - 23rd December: Group Stages 26th - 27th December: Round of 16 29th December: Quarter Finals 31st December: Semi Finals 2nd January: Final/3rd Place Playoff [color=red][b]<- YOU ARE HERE[/b][/color] No games will be shown on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. This schedule is subject to change if I run into technical difficulties or a family emergency. I can guarantee that the whole tournament will be finished, one way or the other, by January 14th at the very latest. [size="6"][b]IRC[/b][/size] The oFiCiAl IRC channel of WC2010 is... #wc2010 on irc.coldfront.net. Any questions you have could be answered there (no promises). It will also be the first place that videos will be released to.
  8. Matchday Nine - The Halfway Point Welcome to this special edition of the CFPL blog wherein, as the title suggests, we take stock of the season so far at its halfway point and read a whole load of useless statistics. Traditionally, at this point of a football season, each team has settled down and know where they stand in the league, while the viewer has a general idea of where each team will finish. It is my proud proclamation that this certainly doesn't apply to the Castle Fairgrounds Premier League. Warning: Unmarked spoilers will be used from this point onwards - do not read the rest of this if you want to watch any of the matches without knowing the scores. Full League Table So what does it all mean? It's time for a wikipedia style unnecessary trivia section! It means that the MK Dons, O'Samurai Utd and Real Vanguard are in a three way tie for the lead, with MK ahead because of their superior goal difference. The best home record belongs to Greenland United, with two wins and two draws in their four matches. Best away record goes to O'Samurai, whose away form is exactly the same. For what it's worth, the measures in place to simulate home advantage seem to be working, with 10 wins going to the home teams, compared to 6 for away teams. Athens Athletic, Greenland United and the MK Dons share the title of highest goalscorers with 7 goals each, while O'Samurai United have conceded the least, letting only 3 slip past. Despite their lowly 8th place, Tigris FC have not conceded a single goal at home; a record similar to O'Samurai's on their travels. Best Eleven Based on individual performances this season up until this point, my best eleven would read as follows: GK: Huttervan (ODN) - Despite his team's relatively poor defensive record, Huttervan has often single handedly won vital points for ODN. DL: Jguy (GR) - Dangerous crosser of the ball, ever-present in defence. DR: Volatile (FOK) - Provides much needed width for his team and still manages to be a vital cog in FOK's 3 man defence DC: potato (MK) - Completely solid. Physically and cerebrally awesome. DC: Griswald (MK) - Not as 'standout' as potato but together they form the defensive partnership for the one unbeaten team. No arguments there. ML: Wurzel (GR) - Beating out Chaoshawk on account of Wurzel consistency and quality of the final ball. MR: Cataduanes (ODN) - Close between Cata and Stefan. Cata edges it through his determination and tenacity. MC: Arsenal (ODN)- Captain fantastic; two last minute equalisers for ODN so far and their top goalscorer to boot. MC: Revanche (Van) - A lot like Arsenal, except with less drama. ST: HavoK (Ath) - Not technically impressive but what a sense of timing. Five goals, most of them scrappy, most of the vital. ST: Rafael_Nadal (Van) - Holds his own in what is essentially a 4-5-1 at times and keeps on scoring. There is, indeed, a notable lack of O'Samurai players in my chosen lineup. This is down to how they play well as a team, but typically don't have any real stand-out individuals aside from HisK, who is beaten out by HavoK and Rafa. Full Results Listing Conclusion So hey, I hope this has been an enjoyable read. The idea in my mind was to do something special at the halfway point, though I don't think I've really managed it. Join us for the next matchday this Saturday regardless of this let down!
  9. Matchday Four Desperate times call for desperate measures. And a serious problem calls for a serious solution. Welcome, my friends, to judgement day, where tonight, we make a stand. Tonight, we walk with the ghosts of nil-nil draws past and say no more. Tonight, we traverse the lands where fame and immortality can only be conquered with goalkeeping midgets. Indeed, this matchday has seen more goals scored than in the first three put together. The new wave of vertically challenged goalkeepers can be considered a resounding success, though I can think of one team who won't be very happy with their ensuing situation. In any case, the CFPL has refound its lustre which bodes well for future viewing - whether the methods were unethical or not!

  10. Matchday Three We laughed, we cried and I shouted a lot but ultimately, the results remained the same and another boring matchday has passed us by. No more, said we the few, we the proud, we the minute CFPL fanbase. Saturday's matchday four will see interesting games, even if it kills us (likely) or if I have to replay every single game until we get a result (liklier). It will make for a lot better viewing than today's, I promise you that. It can't take all that much effort to get more than two goals in four games though, can it? The featured matches this week were Style 386 vs Feyenooit (for the commentary) and Athens vs Umbrella (for the action). I feel it prudent to warn that strong language might have been used, so please execise discretion.

  11. Matchday Two It does seem that the analysts' pre-season predictions are coming true: five minute matches between fairly matched teams do not make for the goalfests we dearly desire. Nevertheless, fans of all eight teams on show today turned out in #mushroom to roar on their lads (and ladettes) and their loyalty was promptly rewarded. The results themselves certainly don't convey the high quality of football on display, a contender for goal of the season season hidden amongst them. All in all, an enjoyable spectacle for our live viewers - and hopefully for everyone else now too!

  12. Matchday One All in all, the Castle Fairgrounds Premier League, hereafter referred to as the CFPL for everyone's sanity, got off to an inauspicious start. Not to extinguish the raging inferno of enthusiasm my intial blog post must have incited, but four games and only four goals do not make a brilliant curtain raiser! However, there were some real gems on display tonight that bode well for the CFPL's future, so without further waffling: Viewing Style 386 FC vs Tigris FC http://www.viddler.com/explore/castlefairgrounds/videos/1/ O'Samurai United vs Umbrellailures http://www.viddler.com/explore/castlefairgrounds/videos/2/ Athens Athletic vs Real Vanguard http://www.viddler.com/explore/castlefairgrounds/videos/5/ MK Dons vs Feyenooit http://www.viddler.com/explore/castlefairgrounds/videos/3/ Results
  13. Good morning virtual sports fans! As you will no doubt be unaware, for the past few months, the Mushroom Kingdom has played host to two mildly successful virtual soccer tournaments. These tournaments take the form of watching the involved teams play out a soccer match in a video game, while an uneducated man with a funny accent shouts over them. If you're an old enough CNer to remember the LUE vs NPO soccer matches, it's the exact same thing. Nothing has evolved in the slightest! The Castle Fairgrounds Premier League officially gets under way this Tuesday (16th) and competing in the first season are: Athens Athletic Feyenooit Greenland United MK Dons O'Samurai United Real Vanguard Style 386 FC Tigris FC Umbrellailures Have fun working out which team is which alliance. Athens Athletic is Athens, I'll give you that one for free. I will be crossposting the results from my own CFPL blog to here in an ill-fated attempt to garner more interest in the league with a view to opening it up to non-allies for season two, should season one be a success. If this whets your apetite at all - though I can't think why it would - you're very welcome to follow along with us on the MK boards, just ask me for the Fairgrounds mask. Or you can view the matches directly from the CFPL Youtube, missing all the delicious context and banter. Maybe that's the idea. The CFPL curtain opener will be ready to view this Tuesday, I hope you'll join us then!
  14. My life is still disappointingly devoid of kamichi.
