          ShanKa Shadows wins the Tournament of Darkness v3!!!

          There are several people that I must thank though, that helped make this possible. First of all and a huge thanks to Grank and the Crackaz team server. Without his server, webhosting, and admining this wouldn't have been possible. Second to Alexius for his graphical ladder. Lastly to Dalai and the rest of the dev team for creating such a great game and this community!

          Match reports will be posted at a later time, with plenty of screenshots, so be sure to look for those!

          Congrats again to ShanKa Shadows for their second ToD win, and I hope to see everyone again next time!

                  Great Time

                  Yep, great time, but I'm shattered! Good job Shug showed up when he did, not only did his crazed slaughter of the other team inspire us, his final pep talk... is something I shall never forget...

                  (SUPER DEEP DRUNK VOICE)

                  "Ok guys, your gonna just go in there and do it... fast... kill them"

                  And with those words... Man and Machine truely did come together...

                  Thanks to everyone who took part, well done to all Shanka, an unlikely alliance which was a pleasure to serve with. I didn't get any screenies because I was in every round.

                    TBF thieving vs Shanka guarding, Round 2, Darkened Enlightenment.

                    The beginning goes well for TBF, with Fridae and Athelstone skillfully infiltrating the major loot locations, and getting out alive, while Salsa fruitlessly tries to bow-DM with an unexpectedly fluxing ping of 100-300, and then once making a charge, neglecting to buy crack arrows.

                    Eventually, all three gain a decent amount of loot, making 900, with some lives to spare, but Shanka is quick to guard and trap the exit. After KOing Shug a few times for kicks, a simultanious rush is made, resulting in Athelstone's death. Salsa salvages (???) most of the loot and the book, and gets back into the water, but some is missing.

                    Upon the simple recollection of unguarded loot, the team meets up again, and Salsa expresses the idea to hold a secret cult meeting around the corner. At first his teammates did not understand, so he repeated his intention to perform a bloody ritual of mass-suicide (that the spectators apparently predicted happening 15 minutes before Salsa thought of it). Fridae didn't really get it, but joined in anyway, so she and Salsa slit their own throats while Athelstone looked at them like they were idiots.

                    Athel picks up all the loot and hijacks a tank, breaking through Shanka's solid phalanx formation. It was an amazing (if hollow) victory, and too bad for TBF that Shanka found the secret Rocket Launcher in round 3.

                        Thats pretty good, seeing as Shug wasn't actually playing
                        Our team was TheMachine, Grank and Myself

                          I wasn't talking about in-game. While we were waiting for an opportune moment, we physically went to Shug's place and beat him over the head with blunt objects.

                              Well, certainly was an-action packed morning.

                              After skipping dinner, watching the Aus vs NZ rugby game, sinking 5 beers, 6 or 8 shots of bourbon and 3 smirnoff double blacks, I wandered around a local club trying to locate TUT's Convict (with a notable lack of sucess). I guess being drunk didn't help the cause - anyway, I was home in time for my girlfriend to pass out. Luckily a kebab and some pizza sustained me for the morning; dozing from about 3:30 to 5am I jumped on msn with some trepidation about whether or not I'd missed the first match. Sure enough, 20 minutes later Gladius signs on to tell me that he, Grank and Mach had won DE. Phew.

                              On Teamspeak I was basically rumbling because of my alcohol soaked throat, as Mach, Glads and the ToD admins will attest to.

                              Ooze had a phenomenal game in the first round on korman, bagging 4 kills in a solid defense of the rectory by him and Louie. Gladius managed to break the basement defense and pick the safe - no dice (or ruby). He had also nabbed the crypt ruby and about 450 loot.

                              Mach had various forays into the lower part of the rec and was shot dead about twice by Ooze's rather freakish aim. In the end, Gladius flashed Ooze, invis'd and picked the ruby safe - in dining. He was tragically cut down by Ooze's thunderous mace mere steps from freedom - in the kitchen. Mach's attempt to save the bacon resulted in an incredible double crack hit on Louie and Ooze, and a dual ruby snatch. Unfortunately, he was running out of time - maybe under a minute left - and he had no loot. I don't know if he was lacking broadheads or what, but the spectators were furiously whispering "KILL THEM!" (all AI were gone). I think they ended up cutting Mach down before the time ran out - he was furiously rushing around the rec and was allegedly heard mumbling 'fuck, fuck, fuck' to himself on teamspeak. Valentines win, some nice work surviving sporadic bowfire with no AI left, and good guarding on a typically tough assignment in the rectory.

                              Round two saw myself and Mach set up a crypt defense. Louie unluckily cratered off the ladder from the sewer, and was also pinned against the wall by an AI. Mach and Ooze (I think) had fun opening and closing the front entry on each other while Louie made another dart and killed me with broadheads (also the ghost had been owning my slightly drunken travelling). I respawned outside the church and ran head on into Ooze and Louie in the church - at least, I think that was how it happened, I can hardly remember now. I managed to kill both of them and then kill the last thief as he ran into the church again. Round goes to ShanKa.

                              I gave Mach and Glads the infamous pep talk before the last round - and it worked, I must say . Mach's bowfire was on target and a sword-bearing Gladius (I know, it scared me too) blitzed into a weakened Louie and Ooze, downing both to take the round and the match. By that time it was 7am in the morning, and me and Glads were both buggered.
