Match: Amazingly our third TWL challenge also resulted in a forfeit win. We are on to our fourth challenge vs The Fellowship -- having played FS a few times in the past, we're confident they will show ready to play. All match members must report on their availability in the member's forum ASAP.

Match: We have gotten off to a bumpy start on our TWL career. Our first challenge resulted in a victory via a forfiet at match time (the other team didn't have the players). Our second challenge resulted in a "victory" via forfiet during the challenging procedure (the other clan dropped from the league right after we challenged them). We are now onto our third challenge. Hopefully it will result in a match!

Recruitment: I would like to welcome our newest recruit, Eddo. From what I've heard he is a hardcore player with talents in just about any position in the game. I look forward to see how he develops!

GeNeRaL, Neos and Veon have withdrawn from their sponsorships. I would like to wish them the best of luck and I'm sure I'll see you guys around.

Match: The Kindread have officially retired from the OGL. We had a great time competing in the Tribes Shifter ladder and the Tribes2 Base ladder but we want to be where the compitition is at and that is no longer the OGL. Since most of the elite T2 clans have all moved over to the TWL, that is where we will now play.

Roster Update: Our roster has been going through a lot of changes recently. I would like to start with a fond fare-thee-well to our friends in {S|B}. It is a shame that their clan became match competitive, they will be missed on our roster but we'll still hang with them as allies.

I would like to welcome some people to full membership. Billatron has been put through the pains of the Kindread sponsorship and has come through a new person (it had nothing to do with the barnyard animals or Choad). We have also added a new friend in WingZ and he is already ripping it up with our LD squad and finally Ghisteswicholm; he was an old time Shifter player who was rediscovered in Evercrack, I hope we can save him from that addiction.

Next, we have had the pleasure of adding 3 new sponsored players: GeNeRaL, Veon Ake and NeosPirahnis. We look forward to see the results of these Initiates.

Finally, we have been cleaning up our Roster, and some long term inactive players have been shuffled to our Lost. May they one day find their way home. -Wolven

We had a great time dominating the Shifter leagues. We leave as the only TSL champions, the top clan in the OGL Shifter Ladder, after sitting in the #1 spot there for over 6 months, and the best clan in the SBA.

We look forward to the new opportunities available to us in the new game. We hope to maintain friendships that we made in Shifter and with the reopenning of the ESC we expect this will be made easier. Good luck to everyone and we'll see you in T2. –Wolven

Our busy schedule is working out. This is the first test we've had of our clan's ability to handle mass matches in a small time frame. It wasn't really meant to work out this way but with the SBA playoffs coming up matches got pushed together.

This weekend we managed to defeat SOW, CC and DgD without even letting a cap go, great work to everyone involved, I'm proud of the group effort and some amazing solo efforts and willingness to sit out for the team has been a constant reminder as to what makes us an Elite group.

Some additional Roster updates have occured lately, PUCK has been accepted into the clan and other members have been moving up in the ranks to fill on holes which have been vacant for a while.

It's 5:00PM MST do you know where your Kindread are? Because the Kindread Clan will be playing its first OGL Match in over two months as HF|T tries to unseat us from our first place position.

This is nothing out of the ordinary, we are excited to be returning to more OGL play and do look forward to more matches in the future. The extrodinary thing, though, is that it will be broadcast on the The Homelan Broadcasting Network which provides a 24/7 internet broadcasting service. You can connect to the live streams from within that website or, if you are on DSL/Cable, can connect at http://hbn.homelanfed.com:8000/listen.pls (96 kbps).

Huge update to the news, we've been busy.



Event:

The Kindread cleaned up on the 3v3 CTFnet.com tournament. Kudos to Uber for setting it up. We won both the first and second place prizes: The Kindread Command team took first and Choad's bung team took second.

Way to go guys!!!


Event:

We have left the TSL behind. As we all knew would happen, bunny went all out on yet another power trip and caused all the big clans to leave the TSL. After our amazing match where we crushed W|W's dreams of beating us, we too retired from the league as the Champions.

bunny has promptly started deleting all traces of us on his site, just goes to show how petty he really is.


Site Updates:

We have joined a new league, the Shifter Battle Arena. The Links page has been updated. The ESC has continued to grow, we don't have official events as of yet but it will come as more clans are drawn in.


Roster Updates:

We have recently added CUinHELL and QDPie_TGE to our membership. They have both proven to be very useful in their own ways. Abbell was the first of the people from the tryout to earn sponsorship. Time will tell how that works out.

There has been another set of promotions. The most significant promotion is ODIN earning the final rank of Sergeant for the Black Dragoons, which has been vacant since the creation of the Kindread. He has earned this through his commitment to organizing practices and helping out with our OGL scheduling. I hope to see him continue on and set an example as the Black Dragoons’ Second in Command.

Another promotion was Severance, he has been in the Black Dragoons for a long time and has shown a great amount of talent and dedication to showing up for matches and practices. Thus he has earned the rank of Master Corporal.

I would also like to congratulate Icon.x, SolFire and Chasey for their movement up in ranks, they to have shown time and again that they truly are Kindread.

Since bunny will not see reason I am forced to take action, a new league/club will be created here as soon as we can get it. It will be focused on the Elite Tribes of Shifter and we will be looking to give as much extra play time as people want.

We have done some house cleaning on the roster and this put a number of our inactive members into retirement. We wish them all the best and maybe some of them will make a return for the long awaited T2.

On the flip side to that there have also been a number of promotions, the main one being ODIN becoming the first player to be promoted to Master Corporal within the Black Dragoons.

Well it seems that the perl module and in particular the Apache::registry handler is so kind as to fill in my http headers for me which has the unfortunate side effect of making my cookie setting arguments invalid. I am going to have to read up on mod_perl now and setting cookies, but untill then it is back to the regular style perl interpreter. I wish it worked cause the server was sure serving up the error messages fast! Thanks to Czar for calling it to my attention, sorry for any inconvinience that was caused.

It also seems that the message board was getting fucked up. That is probably becasue I was working on the mod_perl stuff. I don't know what the fuck is going on anymore. - Mandrake

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

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

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

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.
