Hello everyone.

foot in the door at Warrior Nation and experience a new and interesting side to the clan. Whether you can creative great graphics and join GAT, or editing wonderful videos and join VAT, there is something for you. Writers are needed more so than anything, from sectional reporters to historians! If you have any desire to go above and beyond and involve yourself in the more creative aspects of this clan, then the Creative Works Department is certainly for you! If anything mentioned here interests you, take a look at the Warrior Nation Ranks page for a description of what each position does. You can

Allods Online Recruiting drive - Think you have what it takes? Allods is looking for new members to help build the rookie section into something great within the confines of Warrior Nation. If RPG-style PVP is your flavor, then Allods is calling your name. If you prefer PVM, there is plenty of monsters available for the slaying. Allods is a free to download game, so there's no excuse for not giving it a shot! Love potion #9 - WNxTiger and WNxBabyoxide spiced up the forums with a captioned pictorial describing their un-

usual reaction to drinking a love potion. Disclaimer: Not for those who are pregnant, may become pregnant, have a heart condition, or under 48 inches tall.

PvP build competition - Some in-section smack talk began in a battle between WNxFatalDesign and WNxVulture as to the better PvP. The forum thread has inspired others to join in on the competition, and people are now searching for their perfect pvp gear. No date has been set for this event, but it is sure to be one of epic proportions. Mule dump - Now that the second month after the lad-

der reset is over, D2 held a mule dump event in which everyone participating was able to relieve their mules of items they no longer needed or wanted, and could replace them with the items of others. Due to some miscommunication, only a handful of people were in attendance; however the likelihood of another event such as this is high.

Dungeons & Dragons Online Released - May was a good month for Dungeons & Dragons Online as it was released from development and is well on its way towards being a fledgling section in its own right. WNxCootie has been appointed as its Grand Master with WNxZecrag as his second in command. Congratulations to both of you and to the section. Guild runs forming - WNxThetislongarrow is running some

guild runs and looking for section support as well as potential recruits to join him. They are still in the planning stages, so stop by to provide your input and stick around to see the success. Guild Bank - There is a mule account set up within the DDO section for those less fortunate. Several members have put in countless hours collecting various items that may help in your quest for

PangYa Nickname update - The past month, the game developers finally did something "good". They gave us back the chance to change our nicknames in game. But the big BUT is that it's way more expensive than the old price, and in my opinion a nick change doesn't worth about 10 dollars. I wouldn't be surprised that when they bring us the guild system they'd make it payable, and the guild system is something

A new FO captain - One Interesting thing to mention is that on May the section had a great promotion, WNxKomatsu has been promoted to Field Operation Captain, and the good thing to mention here is that he was one of the first majors of the section and he's still here with us, and as officer once again.

So hurry and get yours!

Siege Wars - Meanwhile Many of the guild members have been burning the midnight oil doing instances and fighting in the nightly Siege wars, instances are being run on an almost nightly basis. Siege Wars however has become a nightly event to which more and more members are becoming addicted to. As more players reach higher levels, and the ins and outs of SW are learned by all, other guilds are realizing that Warrior Nation is a force to worry about.

Heroes of Newerth Members have been steadily flowing into this section for the duration of the month, yet forum activity seems to be down due to more people staying in-game rather than web-surfing. This may be because of the several people that left early on in the month. Hopefully, the new people can fill in the sad gap that has been left. The requirements to join the section have changed slightly

OGame There was a massive rollcall boost for the OGame section in May, gaining 8 more primary members compared to last months rollcall. Thanks to WNxKOTR, the Recon Captain of OGame, as he made sure everyone would sign. A new redesign of OGame has been released in uni1 and is expected to shortly be released in uni27, were our OGame section is situated. A 'Beta team' started up in uni1 to test out the redesign and it

has received positive marks, however, the graphic requirements are criticized, as some computers cannot function with OGame. As part of a initiative by uni27 and uni28 players, many of the WNx members have started up new accounts in uni28 to try and increase activity in the uni. Along with this many uni28 players have started up new accounts in uni27 to increase activity. Many experienced WNx mem-

bers have joined up with former JEDI enemies in a uni28 mini-clan called UNI27 to help a better cause. Field promotions were a plenty in May for OGame, as WNxBlack Knight, WNxClericHelper, WNxDoumeki, WNxForward and WNxRuler4lyf were all promoted to Sergeant and WNxMartiqulous was promoted to Master Sergeant.

Warcraft 3 NA The May Rollcall was solid for WC3 NA, as they stayed at 31 primaries. This is also the first time since late 2008 that WC3 NA have had 2 consecutive rollcall's with 30 or more primaries. WNxHydrolysis keeps on improving, his activity in game and on the forums, along with his recruiting skills are impressive. As WNxWeeeooo changed to Royal Guard of the section, the Recon HG was open and as decided by the leadership, WNxHydrolysis was the perfect candidate, moving from his rank to Paladin, to the

new Recon HG of WC3 NA. The X Hero Siege Tournament is in the end of the signing up stage, as the full 8 players have signed up and been accepted. The Tournament date is TBD, but it should be big. The goal is to get the most kills in one game of X Hero Siege on Extreme hard mode. Hopefully the date of the tournament is not too far away and good luck to all participants. In the middle of May, WNxMirager caught up with WNxDobby, a dedicated Admin of WC3 NA and inter-

viewed him. The interview looks sweet and as WNxMirager said "there will be more to come." a small thanks to WNxWattZ for editing and reviewing the interview. Check the forums for the interview. Every month, members are rewarded for their loyalty and in WC3 NA, this month is no different.

In Trouble - The section is having trouble with activity, it seems to have slowed down to a crawl. WNxWesker and WNxPinkShadow have come in to help them out. The Recon Black ops team is going to help bring the section back to what it was and hopefully activity is going to go back to where it once was.

Recruitment - Area 51 is quite active in recruiting people they’ve had about six new people join the section in the last month. Showing Off - They do their best to provide people with the screenshots of their games and what is going on in the section as well.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (PC) Good Start - The section has had good activity this month and the in game activity is good as well. They have a new server up and running. The members in the section have grown fast and are going to be very successful. The section is finally out of development and has had its first leadership positions decided.

Day of Defeat Source

Dystopia

Still Growing - To say that Day of Defeat is back on its feet is a vast understatement. The section was dangerously close to being archived only 2 months prior, gained another 5 new primaries and 2 new secondary this month. When you consider that there were only 17 primaries last month this is an amazing feat. This means for every 5 primary members the section had over 2 new members were recruited. Of course it was not only rollcall that improved this month, but they also had many game nights with several members attending and it seems that Day of Defeat is only going up from here.

It is with a heavy heart that I report the closure of the Dystopia section. In the last couple months the section has went from bad to worse with absolutely no activity. Despite all efforts nothing seemed to work and it was ultimately decided that the section was to be closed. The Dystopia section was brought into Development on 10/10/2006 and one of the game champions was Gump, who was the last Major for the section. The largest the section ever had gotten was in March 2009 with 58 members signing rollcall. It has been a great ride for the Dystopia section and it is truly sad to see it go.

Golden Eye: Source “FPS Challenge - Yes, the free mod GES was only beaten out by Call of Duty 4.�

Maintaining The Average This month, although GES did not lose any members, they stayed exactly the same with 54 primaries and gained one secondary. Despite this, 54 primaries for a free source mod is quite a feat and we should expect even more great things from this section. They have kept their members interested by having a game night on every Saturday at 8pm GMT, usually consisting of 2 rounds with a race to 50 each round. They

also have a fun night every Sunday at 8pm GMT. The FPS Challenge - So among many call of duty sections and several other retail games where did we see a free mod like GES place. Let us look down near the bottom, but wait it isn't there. Going up the list of games you won't find GES until you reach the 2nd place spot. Yes, the free mod GES was only beaten out by Call of Duty 4. Even United offen-

Halo (PC) Officer Promotions - With WNxJingo stepping down from Major and leaving the section as primary, the Admin support had a serious decision to make. So WNxRoses did what any good Admin would do and stuck everyone's name on a Dart board, blindfolded himself, and spun around in circles three times. The name that came out of all of this was WNxThorsT3r. In all serious, let us all give a congrats to Thor and his well

sive, which came in a close third, could not catch up with them. Great job to the GES section and congrats on the second place finish.

Combat Arms deserved promotion. Rollcall and Activity - Despite a loss of 3 primaries, bringing Halo to 21 primaries, they are still giving it everything they have got to keep the section alive. They have regular game nights and are currently in the works for running a new server. This section has a lot of great potential and is a section to keep an eye out over the next month.

Slow Times - It's been a slow month for this section, however they've managed to make out some activity. The major event that has happened this month was the promotion of a new captain.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PS3) Points for Promotions? WNxFandango, the Recon Captain of the section, has devised a method for increasing activity by implementing a point system. Basically, for every event they go to that is hosted by him, and for every other set of requirements they meet, they will gain points. At the end of rollcall, they'll be able to qualify for certain promotions. Each month the points will add up until the members reach a high field rank. So far this has been going well with 20+ participants.

A Mass Exodus - Not really. WNxPwnstar4hire left the section early in the month to start his own clan, taking a couple of members with him (not intentionally of course). This has setup the leadership being on edge and their Major, WNxDropkikkmarc71, has taken a course of action to nullify any great losses. With everything on edge, they managed to get into the top 3 of rollcall with 2nd place. They have proved that no loss is too big for the section and have moved on. Good job to the leadership for acting responsibly and taking the

right actions to move on from members leaving.
