We're Back from PAX and Rankings

The crew of the S.S. Alteil have made it back from the farthest reaches of space. We've traveled all the way to the Penny Arcade Galaxy to witness their native gaming holiday in all of it's glory. It was great except for the fact that King Edgar Figaro didn't get to go. I had to stay at base and man the defenses. And who the hell wants to do that? No one!, that's who. Always take the mission to deliver cargo and go traveling fellow Iczers no matter how boring it seems, that's the lesson today. That and... rankings!

As always, anyone who fought in the arena at least once this week will receive 10 gran. Listed below are your top 5 ranked Iczers, top 3 guilds, guilds that have become official, and guilds that have leveled.

Unfortunately for us, the various players who were planning to drop by our booth at PAX to help out couldn't make it. So, we have an extra badge, which is cool because the show is sold out so there's no other way to get in.  If you happen to be in the Seattle area and 18 yrs or older and know enough to be able teach people how to play Alteil, then come help out at our booth and we'll get you into the show.

Rankings or How Lupos Thinks He Knows Comedy

You know what's funny? Lupos. Let me rephrase that, Lupos' attempt at comedy on Friday was funny. It's funny on alot of levels too. For one, the act of not being funny being actually very funny is quite a feat. We should commend him because I know I can't do it. I'm just always funny. It's a fact. Like Cheerios. Cheerios are a fact. Oh and rankings too. Rankings are a fact on Monday.

As always, anyone who fought in the arena at least once this week will receive 10 gran. Listed below are your top 5 ranked Iczers, top 3 guilds, guilds that have become official, and guilds that have leveled.

This Saturday Peralisc2 ran another community Tournament, this one for Starters Only.  Unfortunately, most of the Refess avocates I know of weren't able to make it, but we've got a strong finish for a Lawtia Starter, second for Gowen and Falkow took 1st (as well as 3rd and a lot of the rest of the top spots).

1st place: GeNeSiZ (Falkow)

2nd place: Artist (Gowen)

Runner ups:

3rd alvisto (Falkow)
4th Keran (Gowen)
5th Keladry (Lawtia) & Crematia (Gowen)
6th Divinemagnum (Falkow) & Shinnja (Falkow)

 

Nice job everyone!  Hopefully we'll get another Starter Tourney in a month or so. Also, I highly recommend you all go to the FORUM THREAD on this tournament and check out some of the videos for all those of you with Starters or Modified Starters. It's a good way to get some ideas.
