battle royal is to good (in General)

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 22 2006 6:45 PM EST

they have four guys that get a positive net score of 20k per week and the rest are well above 5k I really wish that another clan will dethrone battle royal of its dominance.

sssimmo January 22 2006 6:59 PM EST

They get knocked out of top spot every now and again. It isn't that hard to do so.

Stephen January 22 2006 6:59 PM EST

Says someone who is a member of an economic clan

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 22 2006 7:10 PM EST

The NoV is not an econ clan. :) And we've knocked BR off the top spot, it was a week or so ago and only for a couple of hours, but *shrug* it can be done.

Stephen January 22 2006 7:14 PM EST

My reference was to the opening post ;p

sssimmo January 22 2006 7:16 PM EST

And GL...we knocked them off for nearly a day if I remember rightly :D

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 22 2006 7:23 PM EST

over the course of one month they have twice as much points as the next clan which is sad.

Adminedyit [Superheros] January 22 2006 7:40 PM EST

Why is dedication a bad thing, find five other players that burn as much BA and they will have competition.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 22 2006 7:43 PM EST

I dont recall saying that dedication was a bad thing I'm just saying that there to good.

PirateKing January 22 2006 7:47 PM EST

Ok... you think they are too good. I hate to be blunt but..... so what?

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 22 2006 7:49 PM EST

settle down nub

PirateKing January 22 2006 7:50 PM EST

That did not really answer my question. So I'll ask again. So what?

[T]Vestax January 22 2006 7:50 PM EST

You are awarded -10 grammar points for using 'to' incorrectly.

As a side note, I give myself -12,000 grammar points for all of my previous replies and posts.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 22 2006 7:51 PM EST

wouldn't it be nice to see someone else #1 for about a month or so.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] January 22 2006 7:54 PM EST

so make a standard clan and change it, k? Get out of Eco first, until then, dont worry about it..

[T]Vestax January 22 2006 8:09 PM EST

BR often accepts into its fold the highest earning cp players in the game. However, these players are not asked to join. Instead they flock there on their own because these players feel themselves being let down by less dedicated players. Everyone wants to be in the top clan but nobody wants to _make_ the top clan aside from a select few. Why take the risk when there is the sure thing?

By virtue of being the best BR is allotted the widest variety of talent from which to choose from. The only people that they can't recruit are those that would rather compete against them out of spite or those that are thrilled by the challenge of bringing them down.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] January 22 2006 9:02 PM EST

Oh, Vestax.

AdminJonathan January 22 2006 10:23 PM EST

Improving kefeck's grammar is a battle lost before you begin, Vestax.

Doc [girl power] January 22 2006 11:15 PM EST

The only reason we knocked them off the top spot was because they did not play a lot that day.

It was more like a charity 15% that day.


YNM January 22 2006 11:24 PM EST

Who cares....econ clans are the only ones that matter.

Blarg January 22 2006 11:36 PM EST

hehe, calling PK a nub. That kills me.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] January 22 2006 11:41 PM EST


Undertow January 23 2006 1:10 AM EST

I'm glad you caught that Blarg, I'm surprised it took that long.

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] January 23 2006 1:15 AM EST

what kind of elitist calls people nubs nowadays anyway?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 23 2006 1:18 AM EST

the recipe for taking #1 away from more than a week is complicated and difficult, plus it takes about 4 months to bake.

Special J January 23 2006 1:27 AM EST

Every day our negative grows too, right now it is ~2500 points down the drain before we even begin to spend BA ;)

Mikel January 23 2006 1:48 AM EST

And you are forgetting that some like me, had to start a new character just to join BR the first time. Would you be willing to do that? I mean 1/1/1Score/ mpr/pr and grow it? And when I started a NCB character, that allowed us to bring in one more NCB and we struggled until Havoc and I got big enough to retain more CP's than we were losing. I love a challenging strat, if you've got one, bring it :)
I get a big thrill out of working my way up the ranks. One day you farm me, a couple days later, I farm you. It gives me a chance to see just how good of a strat that I can come up with.

Mem January 23 2006 9:35 PM EST

*Here is my token post since I am in BR*

There. :)

P.S. Watch Arrested Development!

PirateKing January 23 2006 11:02 PM EST

"hehe, calling PK a nub. That kills me."

Well, to be fair, I stopped playing CB1 back in October of 2004 and only started CB2 a few weeks ago. So yeah, I AM a nub. :P

Undertow January 24 2006 12:25 AM EST

More like a decrepet vet. You forget how to play, and occasionally wet yourself.

PirateKing January 24 2006 12:29 AM EST

How dare you!?!


I'll have you know that I wet myself with great vigor and regularity, thank you very much.

Wait a minute.............. :P

QBRanger January 24 2006 12:29 AM EST

One word:

Depends: my grandmother swears by them.

Might help.

sssimmo January 24 2006 12:31 AM EST

Ok. Thats it. CB has hit an all time disgusting low. Thanks Ranger.

PirateKing January 24 2006 12:32 AM EST

"One word:
Depends: my grandmother swears by them.
Might help."

Sounds hot. She single? :D

Blarg January 24 2006 1:02 AM EST

And the bar just keeps going down...

PirateKing January 24 2006 1:06 AM EST

Well the level of the bar usually moves to match the importance of the thread. :P

AdminShade January 24 2006 1:58 AM EST

what bar, do they have drinks?

sssimmo January 24 2006 2:02 AM EST

Must be an over 65's bar.

PirateKing January 24 2006 2:23 AM EST

Yep. Plenty of drinks.

Rum and Ensure
Gin and Geritol
Old Fashioneds....

You name it, us old farts are drinking it. :P

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 24 2006 6:54 AM EST

we of hell blenders sometimes kick them of the first place when we arent farmed to hard and soon we will own them

btw do they baileys and jenever at that bar? if yes ill come visit :p

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] January 24 2006 12:28 PM EST

I heard they have bowls of pills at the bar instead of the nuts you usually find elsewhere.
During happy hour they usually give you a free bottle of Vick's Sinex with each order.

Dark Dreky January 25 2006 6:23 PM EST

Well, back to the point of the post. The clan I am in did dethrone Battle Royale. Only for an hour or so, but just in case you are still wondering. :)

WeaponX January 25 2006 6:24 PM EST

i am back now to bring BR down.

Maelstrom January 25 2006 7:19 PM EST

"battle royal is to [sic] good"

We must need a nerf, eh? ;)

[T]Vestax January 25 2006 8:34 PM EST

An hour? Not to belittle your efforts, but that is a ridiculously easy feat. All you need is three people on at about noon to all burn most of the BA for the day. Then just purchase all your BA for the win.

Done it plenty of times. Not only that but if you guys just hang out and keep burning away then you can hold it for more hen just an hour, thus making it worth the effort.

Now here is another little secret that I...

Wait... did someone say bar. I'm sorry but I lost my train of thought and I think I'm even feeling a bit parched.

QBRanger January 25 2006 8:51 PM EST


Welcome back!!

Perhaps you can bring Supreme back to its former glory.

Getting mighty lonely at the top :)

Relic January 25 2006 10:55 PM EST

This is a funny post, because if kefeck were in Battle Royale, this post would not exist...

Maelstrom January 25 2006 11:01 PM EST

Very very good point, Matrim.

UltimaSpock [Forge Frog Services] January 26 2006 2:02 AM EST

Vestak I do not think you are correct when saying that if all members of a clan fight in the same hour and spend all their BA, they could be the top clan.

Because the score is calculated on 24 hours.

The surface of a rectangle is the product of its base by its height.
and 1*24 is equal to 6*4 or 24*1.

Consider the base of the rectangle as the time, and its height as the points for all spent BA

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 28 2006 5:14 AM EST

look at who is nr 1 now:p
Clan bonus: 15.0%.
and that for the last think 4hours (only been up 2hours)

for me a glass of water pls, no booze in morning for me

Grant January 28 2006 12:32 PM EST

Am I the only person who looked at this and saw

Battle royale is to good

(a) as duck is to water
(b) as Ranger is to powerful
(c) as friend is to wonderful
(d) as pain is to thunderstorm

QBRanger January 28 2006 12:34 PM EST

I know,

The answer is D, I did well on my SAT. Got a 400, that's 4 times perfect!!!!

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 28 2006 1:25 PM EST

the only reason BR is number 1 is cuz we have 1 char less then them else it would be a real contest :p

btw it seems like imp getting stronger then ranger (imp not yet there but he very close)

QBRanger January 28 2006 2:03 PM EST


But Angel,

If you would look at the scores of BR vs Hell Blenders, you would see BR is getting a large minus to their score due to having an extra person.

So that extra person is not helping us out at all, in fact, it may be hurting us more.

And, Imp is now the most powerful character. I think CB realizes that now. Gives me something to shoot for. It is very difficult to stay on top in cb2 given all the benefits and bonuses new players get. Not that Imp is a new character, but the new characters are effecting how I approach Imp and the spells/skills/enchantments I use on my character to deal with both Imp and new characters on steroids.

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 28 2006 2:15 PM EST

lets get a drink ranger and forget our troubles in cb2, heard cb2 has a good bar :p
